Cumberland Valley Bible Bookstore - based in Carlisle, PA - specializes in Reformed & Puritan books; which means I can wholeheartedly recommend EVERYthing they carry. Their prices are very competitive - yes, even cheaper than Amazon.
    Bibles I most recommend:
        NIV Study Bible (hardcover $27.99); ESV Reformation Study Bible (hardcover $27.99), the new ESV Study Bible is now out that looks very promising.
    First book, after the Bible, I typically recommend people read:
        Knowing God by J.I. Packer ($11.99)
    The next 2 books I recommend:
        When People are Big & God is Small by Ed Welch ($10.99)
        The Mortification of Sin by John Owen ($5.35)
    Parenting books I most recommend:
        Shepherding a Child's Heart and the NEW sequel Instructing a Child's Heart by Tedd & Margy Tripp (both $9.99)
        Age of Opportunity by Paul David Tripp (Paul & Tedd are brothers) for parenting teens ($10.99)
    Let me know if you would like a book recommendation on a particular topic/theme

Romans 5:7-9 (NIV, ©2011)

7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
