Any genre -- theology, novels, biblical studies, historical, biographies, religious or secular, positive or negative, fiction or non-fiction. As long as it's about Jesus.

(These lists are a democratic exercise, so if you think some of the books on this list are better than others, give them your vote and move them up the list! It's worth looking all the way to the end.)

(Please don't add general 'Christian Living' books if they are not specifically about Jesus)

message 1: by Annie (new)

Annie who added the Charles Manson book? That is just disrespectful and immature. Even if you disagree you shouldn't be a troll. Who can remove it?


message 2: by Bill (new)

Bill Thanks for pointing that out Annie -- since that book had nothing to do with the topic of this list, I've removed it.


message 3: by Gerry (new)

Gerry read "God not Jesus" (amazon)


message 4: by Bill (new)

Bill I have removed a couple of books that weren't consistent with the theme of the list. (General Christian living books don't really fit unless they are specifically about Jesus.)


message 5: by Lois (last edited Jan 05, 2015 03:55PM) (new)

Lois Tverberg There are duplicates on the list - Jesus and his Word by Craig Evans appears 2x. The Jesus I never Knew by Philip Yancey appears 2x too. There may be others.


message 6: by Bill (new)

Bill Thanks - if the "removed duplicates" function works, they should be gone now.


message 7: by Bill (new)

Bill I've removed a few more 'Christian Living' books that weren't particularly about Jesus.

If you are a goodreads author seeking to promote your own book, please vote for some better known books as well, to prevent the list becoming dominated by goodreads authors.
