Reader alert: the following list includes my favorites in the Christian genre. I have read significantly in comparative religion, philosophy and spiritual traditions different from my own but this list is specific to my own worldview.
The Bible, New International Version
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
The Apostle of Common Sense (G.K. Chesterton) by Dale Alquist
Common Sense 101 by Dale Alquist
Finishing Strong by Stephen Farr
Looking for God Knows What by Don Miller
A Diary of Private Prayer by John Baille
The Divine Mentor by Wayne Cordeiro
An Unstoppable Force by Erwin McManus
The Seeking Heart by Francois Fenelon
What the Bible is All About by Henrietta Mears
A professor of mine was once asked “Which version of the Bible is best?” His response was, “Whichever version you will read.”
Thanks for all the book lists. These are great. Read a little N.T. Wright and I’m sure he will soon make your list too. Particularly his “Simply Christian”.
