JUST AS I AM, BILLY GRAHAM,  This book chronicles over 50 years of Billy Graham's life from his conversion to his meetings with nearly every President in the last 60 years.  It's a great read that helps understand how Graham's simple trust in God put him in the forefront of Christianity and establised the legacy now carried on by his children.  The Book inspires one from the point of showing how trust in the improbable is the way God chooses to work among men and women.

LEGACY OF FAITH, RUTH GRAHAM,  This is a behind the scenes look at the real man Billy Graham written by his youngest daughter.  It is tender and thought provoking in it's presentation of Billy Graham as a father and the impact a man of Christ can have on his children.  Highly reccomended for fathers.

HERE I STAND - ROLAND BAINTON,  After more than 50 years this is still the definitive autobiography on the great reformist Martin Luther.  This starts from his time as a monk to the time through the Reformation and beyond.  The book gives excellent insight on the man behind the story. It also makes no excuses for the subjects shortcomingings as a human being.

AUGUSTINE AS MENTOR, EDWARD SMITHER,  This incredible book was part of the required reading in a seminary level class on discipleship.  Augustine of Hippo is studied through his wrirtings to portray a man that believed in an implemented first century discipeship.  It is one of the most impressive consolidations of Augustine ever.  While a lot of criticism is leved backwards at Augustine, he was a Christian of his time period and few would ever hope to have even a miter of his impact for the Kingdom.  You wont be dissapointed.
