Reading List




I'm going to use this entry to keep track of the books/websites/youtube channels that have been recommended to me during my time here, those I've stumbled across myself in my search, and whether I have read/listened to them. As time goes on I plan to create at least an entry for each book I read, youtube series I watch or website I visit.


If you think there is a book/source that I am missing in my search for the truth then please recommend it in the comments and I'll be sure to add it to my reading list. That goes for any Christians out there that might be reading this as well. Thanks!
