Below is a brief list of recommended books we believe will help you grow in your understanding and practice of the Christian life and spiritual disciplines. Many of these books are available at the Book Nook at Arlington Baptist Church.

*A recommendation does not mean we agree with everything in the book or with the author's total theology. We believe we can learn from other brothers and sisters even though we may disagree on secondary or tertiary matters. We encourage everyone to follow the example of the Bereans (Acts 17:11) and test everything by Scripture and hold fast to what is true (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
