I'm a true-blue biblioholic and read pretty much anything I can get my hands on.
I just finished a book by Steven James entitled, "Flirting With The
Forbidden: Finding Grace In A World Of Temptation"
but his best work, which is also one of my all-time faves is,
James is a fantastic writer, and an even better storyteller. If you only read one of his works, make sure it's "Story." You won't regret it.
Phillip Yancey is my favorite author though. You can't go wrong with anything he's written to date. Three of his books I just ordered are
"What Good Is God: In Search Of Faith That
, "Reaching for The Invisible
, and "Disappointment With God: Three
Questions Nobody Asks Outloud"
One of the best short-reads I highly recommend to people who may in the valley of decision is,
"How Good Is Good
, by Andy Stanley. It didn't take me more than an hour to read it, but it is quite pithy and manages to cram the entire premise of
salvation into a pocket sized book. I've probably read it 4 or 5 times and I give it as a gift whenever I feel appropriate.
The best books on the UFO nonsense are by Jaques Vallee. He doesn't write from a Christian perspective, but his research and conclusions only serve
to support the Christian perspective regarding this topic, IMO. His books,
ions: Alien Contact And Human Deception"
are total game-changers.
Another book that was written from a secular point of view, yet also only serves to support Christian perspective on the topic is
"The Siren Call Of
by Joe Fisher. Fisher committed suicide not too long after the book was published, if that tells you anything of how damning
the evidence of his experience and research are on psychic mediums and channeling.
Wow, I've got so many more great reads that I can't muster off the top of my head at the moment. Maybe I'll dig around in my office library
tonight after putting the kids to bed and see what else I can find to recommend.
