True or right fear is discovered by three things:– 1. By its rise; it is caused by saving convictions for sin. 2. It driveth the soul to lay fast hold of Christ for salvation. 3. It begetteth and continueth in the soul a great reverence of God, his Word, and ways, keeping it tender, and making it afraid to turn from them, to the right hand or to the left, to anything that may dishonour God, break its peace, grieve the Spirit, or cause the enemy to speak reproachfully.

The Holiness of God – Free Kindle Book
by R.C. Sproul
“When people ask me to name the Ligonier teaching material they should use to help them grow; I tell them, ‘You should start with The Holiness of God.’”
Now celebrating 25 years of publication, this classic can help you better understand the biblical picture of God’s awesome holiness and why it is so foundational to God-centered, God-honoring theology and Christian living. In The Holiness of God , R.C. Sproul demonstrates that encountering God’s holy presence is a terrifying experience. Dr. Sproul argues that this struggle is nonetheless necessary because it is the only way to cure our propensity to trust in ourselves and our own righteousness for salvation.
“This book is a game-changer! Everything in our lives and ministries begins and ends with a soul-gripping awareness of God’s infinite holiness. These dramatic chapters, written in high-impact fashion, reveal what the holiness of God is and how it should revolutionize our lives.”

A Praying Life: Connecting with God in a Distracting World by Paul Miller
Free Kindle book for a limited time.
Haven’t read the book but Tim Challies gave it 4 stars. His concern was not for the book but for a catholic who is quoted in the book.
Leave aside that concern, I still do not hesitate to recommend A Praying Life. Perhaps the greatest strength of this book is Miller’s unrelenting emphasis that prayer cannot be an add-on to the Christian life; it cannot be supplemental but must always be instrumental. This book will equip you to understand prayer properly and, on that firm foundation, to commit yourself to it, with confidence that God is willing and able to hear and answer your prayers.

Becoming a Woman of Freedom – Cynthia Heald – Free Kindle Version
RUN THE RACE WITH FREEDOM.
The Christian life is supposed to be like a race-a race we run freely, unhindered by the burdens of this life. But often, the baggage we carry holds us back. It deprives us of our freedom in Christ and makes the race seem strenuous and futile.
If you ever feel that you’re not making progress, lacking joy, or being weighed down by your Christian life-in spite of all you’re doing to grow and serve-Becoming a Woman of Freedom will give you a second wind.
No matter what your age, circumstance, or spiritual maturity, Cynthia Heald will help you identify and lay aside the burdens that can make you feel “stuck,” including past hurt and loss, poor self-image, approval-seeking, busyness, doubt and fear, and unhealthy influences.
“The goal of this study,” writes Cynthia Heald, “is to help and encourage you through the Word, through the thoughts of those who have run the race ahead of you, and through your own reflections on the race you are running.”
With challenging insights and thought-provoking quotations from classic thinkers and writers, Becoming a Woman of Freedom will put you on the road to freedom-and help you develop the actions and attitudes you’ll need to finish the race with strength.
