Recommended Reading


Friday night at Secret Church Dr. Platt mentioned a list of books he recommends if you are interested in further study of possessions and prosperity.  He did say to be discerning because he doesn’t necessarily agree with everything in all of these books.  Read, learn, but be wise.

I have copies of the ones in bold and I’m happy to loan them to my local church family.
