The Word of God alone is inspired, inerrant, infallible, unchanging & sufficient; therefore this list begins with a link to various Bible reading plans.  This resource is meant only as a supplement to God’s Word & in no way to replace the daily reading & study of Scripture.


An * indicates the book listed is written by an author who at the time of the book’s publication was in line with What We Teach but whose current books and/or teaching are in question whether they are drifting away from or aren’t in line with What We Teach any longer.
