It has been a great privilege and honor to write book blogs and answer questions the past ten years. I hope you have taken advantage of the book counsel given out over this period.

Reading is being there by proxy! Readers are leaders! The best way to supplement your Lord's Day input from your church and pastor is to read the best books you can. In doing so may our Lord prosper your soul.

Your one-time book servant,

Pastor Steve Martin
