Quick update first: I’m thrilled to announce that my 800-page Titan is now with the typesetter. This hardcover monstrosity (over 8.5 x 11 inches in size) is over 385,000 words. All of you (my email subscribers) will get a discount when we take pre-orders in July. So stay on the list so you don’t miss out. There will only be a limited number of copies made, and I expect them to go fast.

Shaped by Vision (the biography of T. Austin-Sparks) – I’ve read it twice so far.
In Pursuit of God (the biography of A.W. Tozer) – I’ve read it twice so far.
Here are others that I own and recommend:
