Book of the Month
This month’s book of the month is The Godly Man’s Picture by Thomas Watson ($7). Watson wrote this book to offer a general sketch of godliness so that Christians would “aspire after piety.” The bulk of the book describes twenty-four characteristics of true holiness. See our booktable servants for a reading guide with a suggested one-month reading plan.
