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”.
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.
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.
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.
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!
