How many critical people in your life, besides family, did you meet by just walking up and asking "Give me information on you." or "Give me information on how to act around you." Probably none.
Left Behind by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim Lahaye - Christian Fantasy (10 book series)
The writing is phenomenal, the characters real and rich. Starts out with your main characters being non-believers and walks their progress to becoming Christian through the devastation and tribulation that came with the Apocolypse. Emotional and mentally arousing, plus a fine read. It's an amazing starting point for the curious as the two gents writing the books take Christianity pretty seriously and attempt to deliver it to the reader in an entertaining and enlightening way.

Clever thread . So has anyone mentioned Paramahamsa yoganandas ,,Auto Biography of a Yogi
That comes highly recomended from myy daughters who are the same age as your sister .
They say he has very practical knowledge about You and your relationship with God and the world around you .
Most new age help books are actually based on the teachings of Paramahamsa Yoganananda.
Basically this book has been read by the current teachers of self help when they were in their youth and now are self help gurus , without actually stating their source work. Cheating a bit .
So no need to waste time reading current people , just go to the inspirational source .

As for my sis, shes been to church and likes to read all those stupid true blood and eclipse vamp book series. So someting more along the lines where you can follow a character as they get closer to God would probably be best. Shes has experience when relaxing in a bath to go deep within and in letting go and has also had fleeting mystical experiences before......... just as somewhat of a background.
So my sister wants to get closer to God, wants a book. Any suggestions?

Nobody here can explain the Bible (New Testament).
Even Jesus couldnt explain things very well.
