More 50 (Or So) Great Christian Books

Two weeks ago, I posted a list of some of my favorite Christian books. In that post, I shared that I would provide another list (honorable mention) of more books that I truly appreciate. Some of these books, in hindsight, deserve to be on the other list, but be that as it may, I thought to leave it as it is and post these here. Also, please bear in mind that there are many other great books which are not on this list because I have not read them or been exposed to them (I am a very slow reader). Let me know what you think. Given the two lists, I have provided over 100 of my favorite books. Any that you have particularly enjoyed? Is there a book not on the lists which has greatly impacted your life and theology?

I love Watchman Nee!
His stuff has impacted me in such a deep way, I don't think I even understand it. I have read most of his books and have been so encouraged by his personal walk with Jesus. He was something special.

I am a musician and WN has inspired many of my songs. I would be honored if you would check out my music on my site. All my music is free for download. Anyway, I just thought that I'd share.

Thanks,
-Sean
