Not to be missed books for Savvy Christian Living, Part One

I recommend the following as particularly good nourishment for a healthy Christian life…

They are, in no particular order:

Anything by Frank Viola or Leonard Sweet

Contemporary authors

You can read my review of Frank’s From Eternity to Here on this blog here:

 Anything by Watchman Nee, particularly The Normal Christian Life; Sit , Walk, Stand; The Spiritual Man.  Amazing teaching.

Anything by Andrew Murray.  My favorite: With Christ in the School of Prayer.  Deep and insightful.

Anything by contemporary novelist Bill Myers. I particularly like his teen series: Dark Power Collection; Deadly Loyalty Collection; Invisible Terror Collection and Ancient Forces Collection (total 12 novelettes), and his nonfiction Dark Side of the Supernatural is a good read for anyone tempted to dabble even slightly in the occult. And his full-length novel The Face of God.

Anything by A.W. Tozer: My favorites: The Root of Righteousness; Reclaiming Christianity: A Call to Authentic Faith; and The Pursuit of God.

Hal Lindsey’sCombat Faith and his later more lengthy treatment of the subject Faith for Earth’s Final Hour. Powerful teaching on practical faith.

I reviewed both books here:

I’m also a fan of Oswald Chambers, his My Utmost for His Highest in particular.  I am reading his Biblical Psychology  now, and I am not only enjoying it but also I find it to be a profound and insightful teaching on our spirit and soul and body.

For solid help in interpreting your Bible, Kay Arthur. I particularly like her Discover the Bible for Yourself, as well as her book on prayer: Lord, Teach Me to Pray in 28 Days.
