“The man who does not read good books had no advantage over the man who cannot not read them.” ~Mark Twain   







Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard

This beautifully written allegory tells the story of a younger girl named Much Afraid and her journey from the Valley of the Fearings to the High Places (Christian maturity).  Throughout her journey, Much Afraid and her traveling companions, Pain and Suffering, encounter fear, grief, and even doubt in the Good Shepard Himself.  Weather you’re walking hand-in-hand with Pain and Suffering, you’re on the road to the High Places, or you’re just looking for a good read, this book is an excellent choice.







How to Study Your Bible by Kay Arthur

In this book, Kay Arthur provides helpful, practical tips on studying the Bible, along with laying a foundation of the principles to keep in mind no matter what form of Bible study you’re doing, and it’s a great introduction to the inductive Bible study method as well. If you’ve found yourself wishing you knew the Bible better, this is a great place to start. 








Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis explores the foundational truths of the Christian faith in this all-time classic.  This is a wonderful book to start with weather someone’s looking for an introduction to Christianity, they want to examine the faith they’ve been raised in, or are simply looking for a fresh reminder why they believe what they believe.









More Than a Carpenter by Josh McDowell

Josh McDowell thought Christians must be out of their minds, he tried to prove them wrong, but eventually he realized his arguments didn’t stand up. This is not only a good book for those questioning Christ’s deity and resurrection, though, it’s also good for those who’ve been raised in the Church, but have never taken the time to think through their faith to the point of being able to explain their view to someone.







Passion and Purity: Bring Your Love Life Under Jesus Christ’s Control by Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot honestly and openly shares the story and lessons learned from her relationship with Jim Elliot. Elisabeth Elliot is a mature, godly woman who’s Biblically grounded, thoughtful, and is able draws from her years of experience. She also never makes the mistake of either over romanticizing or over spiritualizing romance and relationships, but she still makes it evident she fully understand what it’s like to be single.








Stop Dating the Church: Fall in Love with the Family of God by Joshua Harris

We live in a fast paced, consumer oriented culture. Our goal and drive is to be served and entertained in five minutes or less, and unfortunately this same critical, inpatient attitude has taken the Church by storm, which is why the need for Christians to learn how to be fully functioning members of the family of God, who take church seriously, is so essential. This is an excellent book to read while church shopping, before going off to college, or to help you fall in love once again with the family of God.
