In this post, I share some book recommendations. Pretty straight forward. .. Smiley face.
My sister-in-law recently asked me for some recommendations so I thought it might be helpful to post it here as well. This list is not targeted at any group specifically, but I would say that the audience in mind is roughly 18-35. It is by no means comprehensive, but meant to give anyone a good running start who is looking for some good books to check out.
Each one has a link to Amazon make it easy for you to click and see details.
- Jesus with Dirty Feet, by Don Everts (one of my all time favorites.not very long, but VERY provoking. Don is the man.)
- Anything by Wendell Berry.
- Exploring Christian Theology, by Nathan Holsteen (good for working through theology and concepts. This guy was a professor of mine)
- To Be Told, by Dan Allender (helping with knowing and sharing your story.)
- The Prodigal God, by Tim Keller (anything by Keller but this is shorter and packs a great punch)
- Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, by Jim Cymbala (anything by Jim is good)
- A Resilient Life, Gordan MacDonald
- The Sacred Romance, by John Eldredge (a long time favorite of mine. I think you and Meg would really like it)
- The Weight of Glory, by C.S. Lewis
- The Ragamuffin Gospel, by Brennan Manning
- Safely Home, by Randy Alcorn (a great and emotionally though provoking novel)
- Heaven, by Randy Alcorn
- Bonhoeffer: A Biography, by Eric Metals
- Boundaries, by Henry Cloud (more of a helpful book on boundaries than anything)
- Church History in Plain Language, by Bruce Shelley (a good info book. i usually require anyone I meet with regular to read this).
