With the New Year comes the opportunity to add new books to your reading list. Whether you enjoy the warmth of a romance, the intrigue of a mystery, the guidance of a self-help book or the insights a study Bible has to offer, these resources have the potential to add depth to your imagination, guide you through life’s joys and trials, and spur you on as you walk with God.

Hebrews 10:24 instructs us to “stir one another up to love and good works” within the context of faithfully gathering with your local church. We can also encourage one another from a distance, though. Books give writers – people you may never meet – an opportunity to peek inside their hearts. And readers encourage authors by “listening” to the message God has given them – whether it’s captured in fiction or non-fiction. What a marvelous opportunity for like-minded people to build one another up!

“Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.”

– 1 Thessalonians 5:11
