  1. 1) No, Read the “Bible” by GOD

    2) There is no book that even comes close to the Bible, if i had to choose one it would be “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis.

  2. 1) Maybe if there was some new idea within its pages, but there isn’t so no…not that important.

    2) Ok, I’ll say it: Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin. It’s influence is hard to overstate no matter. what
    Christian tradition you come from.

    1. Wow, answer #2 is a little surprising, Joel. J. I. Packer called Calvin’s Institutes (the 5th and final edition, 1559) “one of the wonders of the literary world … spiritual world … [and] the theological world.” Here’s a question: have you read the whole thing (the Institutes, that is)?

  3. 1)no!
    2)tough, but I’m inclined to include “Total Truth” by Nancy Pearcey.

    I’d love to ask you some more questions about your church, Pastor Meares. My family and I will be moving to SW Michigan in the spring and we’ll be looking for a church. Is there a way I can email you some questions?
