My “I insist!” Book List

I have seen many recommended book lists in my time. I simultaneously love and am overwhelmed by them. So, I thought I’d make instead an “I insist!” Book List of just the books that I think it’s a darn shame if one never reads these in one’s entire life on this planet. (Fortunately, I am nearly positive that they’ll still be in print in the hereafter, so you just might have an opportunity later.)

Without further ado, and in no particular order, here is my list begun:

The Jesus Storybook Bible, Sally Lloyd-Jones

Answering God: Using the Psalms as Tools for Prayer, Eugene Peterson

The Jesus Way, Eugene Peterson

Mansions of the Heart, Thomas Ashbrook

Changes that Heal, Henry Cloud

The Heart of the Matter, Graham Greene

The Chronicles of Narnia series, C.S. Lewis

Counterfeit Gods, Tim Keller

The Cloister Walk, Kathleen Norris

Concerning the Inner Life, Evelyn Underhill

Devotional Classics, ed. Foster & Smith.

Repenting of Religion, Gregory A. Boyd.
