It’s almost Christmas which means… time to shop for BOOKS! If you want ideas to add to your wishlist, or are looking for gifts for others, here are some personal recommendations.
Adorning the Dark by Andrew Peterson will spark a God-centered vision for art and creativity.
Afraid of All the Thing by Scarlet Hiltibidal will help you apply the gospel to your fears (and make you laugh along the way.)
A Place to Belong by Megan Hill will stir your love, gratitude, and hope for the local church.
Born Again This Way by Rachel Gilson will help you understand God’s good design for sexuality, and on a broader scale, inspire you to joyfully obey Christ in all things because He is worth everything.
Confronting Christianity by Rebecca McLaughlin will bring clarity to common objections against Christianity. This is a great resource for fortifying your faith and equipping you for evangelism.
The Dignity Revolution by Daniel Darling establishes a robust view of human dignity and examines how this impacts our call to care for others (particularly the vulnerable). This is one of the best books I read this year…
Gentle and Lowly by Dane Ortlund will capture and comfort you with the heart of Christ. If you struggle to believe that Christ loves you, it’s a must read.
The God I Don’t Understand by Christopher J.H. Wright will help you wrestle with hard questions about God, faith, and suffering (the first 2/3 of this book was among the most helpful content I’ve ever read).
Let Justice Roll Down by John M. Perkins will challenge and encourage you. Dr. Perkins experienced severe suffering and racial injustice. His testimony of coming to Christ, and his commitment to evangelism, justice work, and forgiveness is compelling.
Respect the Image by Timothy M. Shorey will equip you to grow in honoring God, and others, in the way you communicate.
