Recommended Reading
 

Here are a list of books the leadership at RBC recommends. We do not agree nor endorse everything written in each book, but trust they can be beneficial resources. As Solomon states in Ecclesiastes, "of making many books there is no end," but there is no better book to study then the living and active Word of God.
