PRAY for all who flee war and persecution and our brothers and sisters in Christ. Pray for miracles of protection and provision for those who remain in danger.

10 Books Every Christian Should Read

Beyond the 66 books of the Bible, here are 10 highly recommended books to read at least once and perhaps return to over the years as a follower of Jesus.

1. The Pursuit of God
(1948), A. W. Tozer

During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an enduring favorite. Essential.

2. Mere Christianity
(1943), CS Lewis

In 1943 England, when all hope was threatened by the inhumanity of war, Lewis was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. First heard as informal radio broadcasts, the lectures were then published as three books and subsequently combined as Mere Christianity. Total Classic.

3. The Hiding Place
(1971), Corrie ten Boom w/John & Elizabeth Sherrill)

Here is a book aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it. A story of Christ's message and the courageous woman who listened and lived to pass it along — with joy and triumph!

4. Fearfully & Wonderfully Made
(1980), Philip Yancey and Dr. Paul Brand

Best-selling writer Philip Yancey and renowned surgeon Dr. Paul Brand explore the human body. Join them in a remarkable journey through inner space -- a spellbinding world of cells, systems, and chemistry that bears the impress of a still deeper, unseen reality. This Gold Medallion Award-winning book uncovers eternal statements that God has made in the very structure of our bodies, presenting captivating insights into the Body of Christ.

5. The Pursuit Of Man
(1950), A. W. Tozer

Tozer's profound meditations on God's pursuit of us will draw you into deeper spiritual fellowship. From God's continual presence in our lives to a daily, conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit, these powerful essays emphasize the essentials of walking with Christ.

6. The Knowledge Of The Holy
(1961), A. W. Tozer

An Inspiring Classic on the Nature of God, The Knowledge of the Holy illuminates God's attributes 'from wisdom, to grace, to mercy' and shows through prayerful and insightful discussion, how we can more fully recognize and appreciate each of these divine aspects. This book will be treasured by anyone committed to the Christian faith. It bears eloquent witness to God's majesty and shows us new ways to experience and understand the wonder and the power of God's spirit in our daily lives.

7. Holiness
(1879), J. C. Ryle

Everyone knows that we are called upon to be holy, but what exactly does "holy" mean? and what does "holy" look like? With his trademark candor, J.C. Ryle strips away the gaudy ornamentation that many confuse for holiness, and systematically unfolds the true beauty of what it means to adorn the doctrine of God our Savior. Deep, rich, and penetrating, this timeless classic is quite simply profound.

8. The Shaping of a Christian Family
(1992), Elisabeth Elliot

Elliot tells the story of her childhood to share valuable insights on raising godly children. She talks candidly on parental expectations, emphasizes daily Bible reading and prayer, and shows the benefits of practicing such scriptural principles as trust, discipline, courtesy and teaching by example.

9. Desiring God
(1987), John Piper

John Piper turns your heart toward the one true Object of human desire -- God. He shows how fulfilling your duty to delight in Him can change your attitude toward worship, toward marriage, toward material goods, toward your very mission and purpose on earth! Join him on a journey from desperate desire to infinite delight!

10. The Holiness Of God
(1985), R. C. Sproul

Sproul takes you on a journey into the awesome presence of God, and helps you wrestle with the tension that exists between God's terrifying holiness and his inexplicable grace.
