I’m sharing a roundup of my top five most favorite faith-based books. I split them into two categories (fiction and nonfiction) because it was too hard to choose just five in general 😉
1. The Holy Bible
2. Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption – Katie J. Davis
3. Made to Crave for Young Women: Satisfying Your Deepest Desires with God – Lysa TerKeurst and Shaunti Feldhahn
4. Soul Detox: Clean Living in a Contaminated World – Craig Groeschel
5. Mended: Pieces of a Life Made Whole – Angie Smith
1. Redeeming Love – Francine Rivers
2. The Red Tent – Anita Diamant
3. The Prayer Box – Lisa Wingate
4. Like Dandelion Dust – Karen Kingsbury
5. Shades of Blue – Karen Kingsbury
Haven’t read any of these!
I’ll lend you whichever ones I have!
I want to read Redeeming Love SO bad! I love so many of Francine Rivers’s books and know I would love that one too! I have a hold on it at the library so I’m just waiting for someone to return it 😀
Also, Made to Crave was AWESOME. I love Lisa Terkurst! I’m going to save a couple of these to my Goodreads!
I highly recommend Redeeming Love! I can’t wait for you to read it :). It’s amazing that it was published so long ago and yet is still so popular!
I hope you enjoy whichever of these you decide to read!
I’ve read all the fiction ones!!! I love Francine Rivers 🙂
Aww yeah! She is awesome!!
I’m reading Lysa TerKeurst’s “Uninvited” now and I really like her writing style. I’ll have to get Made to Crave next. I just read Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist and I LOVED it. So applicable to the go-go-go mentality that we sometimes have in life!
Hi Kylie!! Thanks for the comment 🙂
I need to read Uninvited and Present Over Perfect! I’ve seen both around but haven’t read them just yet! I think you’d really like Made to Crave!
Kisses from Katie is so good! Definitely makes you think. And I LOVE Redeeming Love! Really, I love all of Francine Rivers’ stuff. Her Mark of the Lion trilogy is awesome! I re-read that probably at least once a year, haha!
It really does make you think! I agree about Francine Rivers’ books! Mark of the Lion trilogy is one of her books I haven’t read yet… I better get on that!
Despite not being a Mormon, I’m finding a lot of things of value in their scriptures (the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine & Covenants). While I’m not completely persuaded that they are divinely inspired, they do seem to come from a devout heart.
How interesting! I’ve heard a lot about the Book of Mormon and its inspiration. Mormonism is quite an interesting religion!
These are amazing suggestions!!! Redeeming love is hands down one of my favorite books of ALL time. It’s life changing and really exemplifies God’s beautiful love for us in such a beautiful, unique way.
Thank you!! And same here! I just love that book so, so much!
