For those who wish to pursue a deep and accurate understanding of the Biblical God and His revelation to humankind,  I recommend the following resources, which I have been using to mature my own thinking.

Other Publications for Intellectual Breadth and Balance

In addition to firmly grounding myself in the thoughts and experiences of those above who genuinely know God, and consequently, have a deep love for him and a passion for following him, I also try to balance myself with intelligent, well-articulated perspectives and experiences of others who may know God more vaguely through their pursuit of him through nature, prayer, and meditation, as well as others who have radically different ideas about reality.  It is impossible to list all of the publications that have informed and enlightened me over the past 60 years of my life, but I will begin to list a few that I like, which have a particularly philosophical focus.
