I am an avid reader - I practically devour books. I'd like to share some that I have either particularly enjoyed and/or have been particularly helpful. The non-fiction ones I have listed are either Christian apologetics/Christian living books or devotionals and the fiction ones are either by Christians or at least good clean reading. Enjoy!
- Lee Strobel, The Case for Faith, The Case for Christ, and The Case for Creation
- Mark and Patty Virkler, Meditation: How to Study the Bible in the Presence of God
- Jobe Martin, The Evolution of a Creationist
- John Eldredge, Captivating and Wild at Heart (the first is geared toward women and the second toward men, but it is helpful reading both to understand the other gender better)
- Rob Bell - He can be controversial but this book is excellent: What We Talk About When We Talk About God
- Os Guinness, The Call
- Chip Ingram, Good to Great in God's Eyes
- Anne Graham Lotz, My Heart's Cry
- Beth Moore, So Long Insecurity and Get Out of That Pit and Further Still
- Lysa Terkeurst, Unglued and Made to Crave
- Candace Cameron Bure, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness
- Books of the Infinite series by R.J. Larson
These are reminiscent of the Old Testament, but in the setting of a fictional world
- Karen Hancock, Arena - This is like a Sci-Fi Christian analogy story (like what C.S. Lewis did in Chronicles of Narnia, only a very different story - Chronicles of Narnia is also a fave of mine)
- Any of Tracie Peterson's books
She will keep you on the edge of your seat! She has a plethora of historical Christian romance, with a bit of suspense thrown in. Usually I don't like suspense, but these I do like, she does it well and with the right amount.
- Kim Vogel Sawyer
Another author who has a gift for historical fiction
- Julie Klassen
A neat mix of Jane Austin meets Jane Eyre
- Janice Thompson
Her Weddings by Bella trilogy is hilarious! It's like a chick flick comedy, only better because it's Christian based and in book form.
