The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer is a must read. I’m so thankful for the impact this book has made on my life. Tozer writes from the position of an intimate companion with God.
The True Woman: The Beauty and Strength of a Godly Woman (Crossway Books) by Susan Hunt opened my eyes to many things I’d never realized about God’s purpose in my role as a woman.
John Piper’s What’s the Difference? (Crossway Books) is a valuable tool for getting a handle on gender distinctions and the biblical roles for men and women. It’s concise but thoroughly packed with insightful teaching. I often quote from this powerful little resource.
