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
- 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)
- Anne Graham Lotz, My Heart's Cry
- Beth Moore, So Long Insecurity and Get Out of That Pit
- 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
- Anne of Green Gables - I recommend the first five books of the series
- 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, I particularly recommend:
In Every Heartbeat, Courting Miss Amsel, Fields of Grace and My Heart Remembers.
- 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.
- Robin Lee Hatcher
She does historical as well as contemporary fiction
- Lori Wick
She has a mix of historical and contemporary as well. Every Storm, The Princess, Sophie's Heart, Bamboo and Lace and Promise Me Tomorrow are a few of my favorites.
