Our Personal Book List We Recommend: (Read/Reading and of course, constantly growing)


NOT endorsing OR endorsed by any below-listed sources. Just personally absorbed material. Also, note all titles DO NOT necessarily support our beliefs. 


   We read plenty of literature we know to be profitable for truth for the purpose of better knowing how to approach the untruth with the truth.
