Books and Movies

This page is for men to recommend books, audiobooks and movies that have helped them in their faith journey.   If you send the title, author, type of media, target audience, and description to help@gunsngrub.com we can build a men's bookshelf that reflects our experience and many life lessons.    The entries are alphabetical by media, except the Bible is always listed first.  Note that you can find reviews and customer feedback on many of these resources and movies Amazon.com.

Please make this page better and send your suggestions to Stuart!
