Recommended Reading from 9 Marks

Photo by luis de bethencourt

9 Marks is a ministry of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, led by Mark Dever. I stumbled across their reading list for pastors and laity, and I thought I would share them. The reading list for pastors contains the following categories:
  • Church Discipline/Membership
  • Church History
  • Evangelism
  • Leadership
  • Missions
  • New Testament
  • Old Testament
  • Preaching
  • Study Tools
  • Systematics
  • Theology

The reading list for laity contain the following categories:
  • Aplogetics
  • Biography
  • Catechisms
  • The Church
  • Church History
  • Dating
  • Devotional
  • Discipleship
  • Evangelism
  • Marriage and Divorce
  • Parenting
  • Prayer
  • Study Tools
  • Suffering
  • Theology
  • Worship

You will need a book shelf like the one in the picture for all these books. :-)

Your title and final sentence in your next post shall serve as my comment on this one.

It is sufficient for ALL the priests in the kingdom.

Hey Eric! I don't think I have any argument with you about the sufficiency of Scripture, but I do think other believers have thought through the Scriptures in ways that are valuable for us. God gives us wisdom in various ways, but it all stems from Scripture!

Hope you guys are doing well. We missed you when the rest of the family was up here!

I hear you brother. I was mainly wanting to provoke you in regard to use of the clergy/laity division. I am guilty of using these terms in the past (even to describe myself), but I cannot see such a division of the Body of Christ in Scripture.
