Top 10 Recommended Books For Pastors

“Leaders are learners, leaders are readers.” [Tweet this]

For the last two years, I have committed myself to grow in wisdom and knowledge and aimed to read a book a week.

I haven’t always hit the mark but it’s a habit I highly recommend.

You can take a look at Growing Pastors Have Growing Churches for more info on how to set up a growth plan for yourself.

It’s essential if we are to be the best pastors and leaders that we can be that we read, read, learn and read!

Of all of the books I’ve read in the last 12 months, here are my top ten recommended books for pastors and Christian leaders – you can click the book titles to check out what other pastors and church leaders have to say.
