5 Books for Christians

5 books for Christian readers {praylivecreate.com}

1. The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel

I picked up this book years ago after hearing Lee Strobel speak at my church. Two words: page.turner. This book is the follow up to his best-seller The Case for Christ and is intended to investigate objections to Christianity for those struggling with faith. But seriously guys, this book is a great read even if you aren’t struggling with your faith. I’m a sucker for all things “investigative” (there’s not a crime drama I won’t watch) and I LOVED this book. I’d categorize this as a “must read”.

2. The Blessed Life by Robert Morris

Six years ago this book changed my life. Don’t let the book’s premise, “the simple secret to achieving guaranteed financial results,” fool you. This book is all about gratitude and generosity as we seek to be good stewards.

3. Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer

Okay, I know Joyce Meyer can be controversial. If you read nothing else by her, read Battlefield of the Mind. It’s her best-selling book and with good reason: its message on  “taking every thought captive to Christ”  is not only Biblical but essential (2 Corinthians 10:5). I’d still recommend this one.

4. Essentials by Greg Laurie

I’ve talked about this one before. It’s a great read by one of my favorite pastors about foundational topics for Christians in a modern world. Things like who God is, Heaven, Hell, and End Times. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we’re never too mature to go back and focus on the basics, and this book is a great straightforward examination of just that.

5. The Invisible War by Chip Ingram

We’ve talked about this one before, too, and I’ll reiterate what I said then. The Invisible War is hands down one of the most compelling books I’ve ever read. Pastor Chip Ingram’s eight part teaching series about spiritual warfare jumps off with Ephesians 6:10-12 and walks us through what the Bible teaches us about the reality of spiritual warfare and how we, as believers, should arm ourselves to fight from victory (because victory is already ours through Christ). I highly recommend both the book and the DVD series.

What books would you recommend? I’m on the search for great summer reading. Share them with me!

  1. These books sound truly great! Thanks for sharing. I just finished reading “Godspeed” by Britt Merrick, and I thought it was positively wonderful. It’s a fantastic read; I’d definitely recommend it. “God’s Heart for You” and “You’re Already Amazing” by Holley Gerth are also touching books, written for women. You may like to take a peak at those 🙂


    1. Those sound great, thanks! Definitely need to read Holley Gerth, I’ve heard nothing but great things about her. Thanks!!


  2. Thank you for the recommendations- I just bought #2 and #5 on Amazon. Looking forward to reading them 🙂 I read a lot of Christian Fiction and have recently read the Rock Harbor Series by Colleen Coble, Ryan’s Crossing by Carrie Daws (also a series), Karen Kingsbury (she has many series all of which are wonderful, especially Every Now and Then), and also Crossing the Deep by Kelly Martin. I’m currently reading a series by Kathy Herman- its ok.


    1. I hope you like them as much as I did! I’ve never read Christian fiction before, thanks so much for the recommendations. I’ll have to check those out! Thanks for stopping by, hope you and your fam are doing well 🙂


  3. I didn’t start reading Christian Fiction until last year- I was fed up with a lot of adult fiction books being so sexual and non-wholesome (for lack of a better word, haha). Its refreshing to read a book that you don’t have to feel uncomfortable about and it also makes you feel good by preaching the word of God and his plan for us.
