Under the Overpass by fellow Westmontster Mike Yankowski
This gritty page-turner inspired me to want to make a difference in the streets of America. Check out Yankowski's website here.


The Revolutionary Communicator by Jedd Medefind and Erik Lokkesmoe

Leap Over A Wall by Eugene Peterson:

A fantastic life-giving work in the middle of an insipid age. This book about David is a book about real and bold living. A great encouragement and a call to live the Kingdom life now... today. One of the most significant books I have ever read, this belongs alongside the Narnia Chronicles and Robinson Crusoe as a standard bearer book for living bold and free in God's realm." - Trey Sklar

A Return To Modesty by Wendy Shalit:

"Shalit's witty writing uncovers the excitement which comes with a God-honoring understanding of attraction & sex. I found this to be a page-turner - with each chapter unveiling more of the mystery and excitement which come from unencumbered sex, love, and romance. She gives the subject justice and proclaims a series of revolutionary [but quite old] thoughts in a way that subtly shouts their truth. The best book I've read in a long time and a stimulating read." - Trey Sklar

Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton:

"The Romance Of Faith. Like any real romance, this book about faith can be peeled back in each reading to reveal a deeper and richer truth. With witty voice (I know it's not an audio book -- but you can almost hear him) Chesterton shows us that God doesn't fit into anyone's box -- and that true faith is the most exciting & perilous thing of all. To truly believe leads us to truly live. For years this has been my favorite book -- and one which shows the richness and jolly goodness of faith.

"One caveat -- must smoke a pipe while reading in order to fully appreciate book. - Trey Sklar
