Evangelical Reading List

Hi all,

I am on something of a winding journey, and following some thoughtful prayer (and prayerful thought) and some excellent advice I am beginning to explore evangelical faith. My background is in Anglo Catholicism, but I am now wanting to immerse myself in evangelical history, theology, apologetics and culture to equip me to attend the independent baptist chapel in my new village.

I intend to re-read the Bible and have bought an ESV Study Bible to assist me, but what I am looking for is a comprehensive reading list to introduce me to the above topics. I have scoured the internet for such a list and have pretty much drawn a blank. Does anyone know of a good list as a starting point? Or maybe a few lists/recommendations to combine? Some British histories/authors would be appreciated!

Many thanks and God bless.

Hi D+C,

The Metropolitan Tabernacle Bookshop has a reading list. It is split into two parts, "startup" and "sequel." It might be some help.Read for the Lord - Books

God bless,

Brian.

Thank you very much, a good starting point I feel. I think I need to blend a few together. For example William Lane Craig provides an excellent list on apologetics, whereas the list you have provided seems much more balanced.

If you go to deeperstudy.com, they have a pretty exhaustive reading list for all subjects. I think Monergism.com does, too.

A good place to start would be the writing of S. Lewis Johnson.

Thank you very much for your help so far. With your help I have identified four lists that seem to complement each other well.

Recommended Reading | Discipleship, Bible, Christian, Studies – C.S. Lewis Institute Classic texts from Lewis, Schaeffer, Edwards etc.

William Lane Craig's Recommended Apologetics Books - Apologetics 315 William Lane Craig's recommended apologetics

Read for the Lord - Books Quite exceptionally broad list

Cornerstone Baptist Church Recommended Reading Explicitly Baptist list

Excellent choice!

You selected the best study bible available in the English Language.

To begin with I would start with the London Baptist Confession of 1689 and CH Spurgeon's A Puritan Catechism.

Founders Ministries | A Faith to Confess: The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith

A Puritan Catechism

These two documents are theological dynamite and outline in clear detail with scriptural proofs historic Baptist doctrine.

God bless, and best of luck with your efforts.

Thank you very much, the Baptist Confession is now on the list and I have just downloaded the Catechism! Thank you for your help.

In case anyone is interested in the fruits of this little exercise, here is the list I have compiled. I won't necessarily buy them all from Amazon, but it is an excellent place to compile such a list. Here it is ordered by priority (Highest/High/Medium/Low/Lowest).
