Stephen Charnock

March 9, 2021

The last of the puritan writers Gary Wilkerson shares about, Stephen Charnock wrote a book called Discourses Upon the Existence and Attributes of God. Charnock dives into the character of God, even referencing some you may not hear about in churches today. This book has revolutionized Gary's worship and can do the same for you as well.

More Puritan Writers

March 2, 2021

There are more Puritan writers Gary Wilkerson highly recommends for your reading: Brooks, Sibbes, Manton, and Owen. These authors share deep theological truths and the good things of God in their books, written hundreds of years ago, that are truths available to you today.

The Attributes of God by A.W. Tozer

February 23, 2021

Gary highly recommends another book this week called The Attributes of God by A.W. Tozer. There truly is so much to know about God—more than we can imagine—and this book is a great resource for diving into the nature and essence of God.

Knowing God by J.I. Packer

February 16, 2021

Do you want your soul to be satisfied by knowing God? A wonderful book to read is called Knowing God by J.I. Packer. In this theological and intimate book, Packer takes us on a journey that cultivates a spiritual desire to know God and his word.

The Puritan Writers

February 9, 2021

There was a time when David Wilkerson felt dry and considered leaving the ministry. His friend brought him a series of books by the Puritan writers and it refreshed David. God can use these books to take us to greater depths with Him.

Visit Many Good Books But Live in the Bible

February 2, 2021

There are many wonderful books out there but first and foremost we should be in the Word of God—it is the only source for life and godliness. Although books should not be our first read there are many great writers out there such as Owen, Spurgeon and Wesley, writers of old who share theological truths often left unsaid in todays pulpits and newer books. Gary starts a series on some of his favorite books and authors that can challenge and inspire growth in our faith walk.

Holiness Isn't Popular; It's Powerful

December 22, 2020

Holiness smacks in the face of popular cultural trends and feel-good teachings. We'd much rather prefer what benefits us than surrendering to God's holy authority. Holiness drives you to your knees in death to self, choosing obedience to Christ rather than self-fulfillment. Which will you choose?

Why Aren't We Talking About Holiness More?

December 15, 2020

When was the last time you talked about holiness with your small group or heard it taught in church? It's not commonly discussed and yet, why not? Holiness is the power to live a victorious life. It should be your pursuit for all delight and joy in your life.

Why Aren't We Walking in Holiness More?

December 8, 2020

What might be a reason or obstacle to becoming more like God? Gary discusses one main reason—a low view of God. We're not talking about his fullness; knowing all his attributes. The more we know him, the more we love him. And knowing him begins with more time understanding who he is and spending time in his presence.

What Is Holiness?

December 1, 2020

What is holiness? Some might attempt to describe it but at the heart, it's an experience. It's one thing to know God but an entirely different thing to experience him. Spend time with God and allow that experience to change you.
