Susan (susanrohrer) | 284 comments Other than the Bible, what Christian Nonfiction book was so compelling to you that you've gone back to read it again at least once?


message 2: by David (new)

David Knott | 23 comments "Ordering Your Private World", by Gordon MacDonald, had a major impact on me as a young Christian, and I have reread it, and quoted from it.
Gordon MacDonald has been a hero of mine ever since.

Elizabeth Turnage (etlivingstory) | 5 comments I’ve reread several Eugene Peterson books, including Answering God and Leap over a Wall. He’s such a great writer, and his insights are profound.

I've re-read The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren multiple times and still refer to it from time to time.

Lisa Lehmann (lisalehmann) | 1 comments A Path Through Suffering by Elisabeth Elliot. Deep, thought provoking, life changing.

Malinda Fugate | 11 comments "The Divine Conspiracy" by Dallas Willard. It looks at the Kingdom of God through the framework of the Sermon on the Mount.The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life in God There's so much packed in there that I think it will take quite a few reads to absorb it all.

I'm not sure how many times I've re-read her book, Through Gates of Splendor. It's an unforgettable true story.

Twyla Franz (twyla_franz) | 8 comments I'm re-reading Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. She inspired me to start my own ongoing gratitude journal through this book. I currently have over 3,ooo numbered thanks written, and it's been life-changing. Her writing style has also heavily influenced my own.

That's amazing, Twyla. Have you written to Ann Voskamp to let her know what her book inspired you to do? I see she's on Goodreads at this link: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show.... I'm sure it would encourage her to hear from you. :)

Hi Susan! I did send Ann Voskamp a thank you email a while back. I plan to send her a note along with a copy of my devotional once the paperback is available. One of the devotions (titled "Gratitude") mentions One Thousand Gifts. I also acknowledged the influence Ann has been on my life and writing in the acknowledgements section :)

That's great, Twyla! It's always great to hear when authors support one another here. :)

Bob Palumbo | 9 comments I just finished reading Jonathan Cahn's follow-up to "The Harbinger," which of course is...."The Harbinger II." The first "Harbinger" was one of my favorite Christian books of all-time (and yes...I know "The Harbinger" is written as "a story".....so it is fiction....but fiction based on actual historical facts (so forgive me for including it on a "Christian non-fictionl" board. But I believe it is more of a non-fiction book written in story form (very entertaining).
Well...."The Harbinger II" is the same type of book....and every bit as riveting, entertaining, and enlightening as the first one.
I highly recommend you read both books.....AMAZING
