Here you’ll find links to books (and sometimes movies!) recommended by me, or talked about on This Week In Heresy for your book buying pleasure! And if you buy them through the Amazon links, then I get some money to keep on making this podcast! Some books are only available from other sources, and will have the appropriate links. Books aren’t listed in any particular order, and new books will always be added as they come up.

I know not everyone likes to buy from Amazon, so if you can buy from local booksellers, please do so. I do recognize, however, that for some folks Amazon is their only option to find some of these books.
