The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer

The Complete Green Letters by Miles Stanford
Are you tired of typical Christianity and want to push on into a deeper relationship with the Lord? An excellent encouragement to every Christian, The Green Letters explains deep truths of faith, position and condition, justification and assurance, reconciliation and acceptance, and how they apply to our daily lives.

Shadow of the Almighty: The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot by Elisabeth Elliot
This biography of Jim Elliot, who was martyred while spreading the gospel to a savage tribe, is an inspiration to anyone who is sick of the average Christian life. Jim dedicated his life to the Lord, and the Lord led him where He wanted him to go, regardless of the opinions of men. Jim's life is a good example for all who want to walk godly.

Through Gates of Splendor by Elisabeth Elliot
This is the record of Jim Elliot, Ed McCully, Pete Fleming, Nate Saint, and Roger Youderian's work with the Indian tribes of Ecuador, and their joint effort to reach the savage Aucas with the gospel. Though they died young, the Lord was leading them, and rewarded their dedication to Him by bringing them home.

Preparing Sons (to Provide for a Single-Income Family) by Steven Maxwell
Based on the content, I think this would be better titled Preparing Sons for Life. Mr. Maxwell makes some excellent observations about what things to train in your sons at various stages in their lives, so that they will grow up to honor the Lord. Challenging, with a godly, biblical perspective, this is a book every father should read, as well as any wise young man who is willing to work these things out in his own life.
