1. 40 Books to Every Pastor's Library

A pastor's library is a growing personal collection of counsel ready to be sought at a moment's need. Some are inspiring classics from your years of theological training. Others were gifted or recommended by a trusted mentor. Psychological reference, sermon prep, and wedding vows - these are only the tip of the iceberg in this sea of written wisdom.

Here we have pulled together what we believe are some of the essentials for your library. If you're just starting out as a pastor, take a look and see what might be helpful to add to your shelves - you never know when you might need it. If you have been a pastor for some years now, we're sure there's something in here especially for you. We have books on leadership, counseling, sermon application, burnout, adoption, sabbath and more - even a couple recommended works of fiction. What will you discover today?
