Take and Read Suggested Books on Controversial Topics

Tolle Lege - Take and Read Book Reviews

Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library – books from the Reformers and Puritans – in order to become a “digital puritan” themselves. Take a moment to visit Puritan Publications (click the banner below) to find the biggest selection of rare puritan works updated in modern English in both print form and in multiple electronic forms. There are new books published every month. All proceeds go to support A Puritan’s Mind.

Controversial Topics are always fun to work through. Here is some reading help.

Take and Read Suggested Books on Controversial Topics
by Dr. C. Matthew McMahon

The next time you are considering a topic, look at these books for further study and direction.

Here you will find lists of books in certain controversial categories. If you think other books should be added, please email me and let me know which books you found helpful in a certain areas of study. These books are “must reads” along with the Bible (assumed) when studying any of these topics. Be sure to consult them before landing on a certain theological persuasion. Sometimes we need the help of others before we make solid theological decisions that will shape the rest of our life.
