  • Essential reading

    If there was one thing you read , that really blew your mind and you wish everyone would read it. You think its the sort of thing everyone should know. If you had a time machine you'd send there books back to your past self
    Here's

    1) Psychology of adjustment
    Its your brain and you should know how to use it. There's a science to how humans function in society , how to memorise things more effectively and how to be happy. Its called Psychology of adjustment.

    59 seconds by Richard Wisemann is a really good book with practical tips from Psychology of adjustment.

    The user lukeprog has made a series of posts using material from Psychology of adjustment here as well.

    2)Christianity

    Reasonable Faith by William Lane Craig is the best apologetics book I have ever read. I love the range , depth , rigour and comprehensiveness. More people need to know a reasonable case can be made for the Christian faith.
    Tektonics hub - JP's hub on practical Christian issues , particular on biblical social mores should be required reading for ever exegete.

    3)Scholarship and critical thinking

    Guide to efficient scholarship

    This is all I can think of right now. I might add more later
    Add in whatever you feel like!!
