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.
