So, with that in mind, I would like to take a shot at providing a short list of books Christians should read. If you are interested, here is a list at GoodReads of some of the books I have read. You can sort it according to “date read” to see what I have read latest.
In no particular order, here is my short list:
- The LAW of CHRIST, Charles Leiter, eBook is available here.
- The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, Francis Schaeffer (or at least the Francis Schaeffer Trilogy). Sorry, this is more than one book, but the collection makes up the combined thoughts of Francis Schaeffer.
- The Justification of God: An Exegetical and Theological Study of Romans 9:1-23, John Piper.
- Christianity Through the Centuries, Earle Cairns (Church history is an essential).
- Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine, Wayne Grudem.
- Evangelical Ethics: Issues Facing the Church Today, John Jefferson Davis.
- Decision Making and the Will of God: A Biblical Alternative to the Traditional View, Garry Friesen and J. Robin Maxson. I blogged about this book here.
- Desiring God, John Piper.
- The Forgotten Trinity, James R. White.
- How to Choose a Bible Version, Robert L. Thomas.
Here follow a few more for good measure:
- The Word of God in English, Leland Ryken.
- The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict, Josh McDowell.
- Total Truth, Nancy Pearcey.
- Tablets of Stone and the History of Redemption, John Reisinger.
There are many more that I could list, but I think that this is enough for now.
Which Christian books would make it to your top 10?
