Dr. Steve Sample always said you should read the classics. My pastor says it too: read books by dead authors. What classics would you suggest?
Good dead guy books are: anything by Edwards, anything by Spurgeon and anything by Owen!
Welcome to the blog, Matt! Edwards I know, and Spurgeon I know. But who’s Owen?
John Owen is probably my favorite dead guy. “The Mortification of Sin” is a must read!
