My Favorite Books

book

Before I was following my Father, I hated reading. It was the ultimate kill joy of summer when I had a “summer reading list” as a child. I may have only read one or two books and did only one book report out of all of high school. Then, when I starting following my Father at the age of 20, I loved reading. I can’t get enough of it. I don’t have an exuberant amount of books…but I wish I did! It is probably because I am an introvert by nature and a Teacher Redemptive gift. I just felt like sharing the books I love and, if you haven’t read them, maybe you would get out of them as much as I did. This list is in no particular order and consist of both fiction and non-fiction.

  1. Your hate and then love story of reading sounds just like my husband! Our reading list sounds pretty similar, although now you’ve given me some to add to mine! “Beauty will save the world” by Brian zahnd was one of my most recent awesome reads! “Bonhoeffer” was amazing too!

  3. A lot of your books have been on my list too. According to what you’re going into with inner healing, I would suggest The Three Battlegrounds by Francis Frangipane and Battleground of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. Also, Kris Vallotton’s Spirit Wars and Bill Johnson’s Supernatural Power of the Transformed Mind. Bill Johnson’s book, When Heaven Invades Earth is a classic. Jack Frost’s book, Spiritual Slavery to Spiritual Sonship is a classic on the orphan heart. Also, Leif Hetland’s Baptism of Love. I a LOT more if you need them. 🙂

  4. Oh man! I just read The Shack (behind the power curve, I know) and I was undone. Finished it in about 4 hours, between sobs and encounters with Papa, and even though I knew God was good, this stretched my imagination. I even have a good friend who is close with the author and, he told me via text message that I have a hug from Paul waiting for me. So much glory! Also, You will love The Weight of Glory!
