C.C. Cole (authorcccole) | 17 comments Well, this is going back some, but as a youngster I enjoyed "Pilgrim's Progress" and the sequel, I believe written by John Bunyan (a prisoner at the time). I don't know how 'politically correct it is to mention it, but I really enjoyed it as a child.

'The Oath', 'House', 'Monster', 'Hangman's Curs'. Ya, they are all Christan, but they are horror. They are from Frank Peretti.

I'm reading "The Visitation" by Frank Peritti. I agree with you, he's a great author.

*Mrs. Brightside* I'm reading The Iron King (Iron Fey, #1) by Julie Kagawa but I think everyone should read.....well, I don't know /: but Tempted (House of Night, #6) by P.C. Cast was pretty darn good. Best out of the series, even though the ending is sad. I heard Graceling (The Seven Kingdoms, #1) by Kristin Cashore is good, but I haven't read it yet. I was going to...but got the one in Spanish(; I still don't know how I did that..


*Mrs. Brightside* Oh crap. Ignore what I posted. I just realized that this is suppose to be about Christian books.

Sandy (sandycrow) | 373 comments Mod
So the point of the book is that we should let people know now so they won't need to know then, right?

I've heard good stuff about that book!


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

The Present Darkness
Piercing the Darkness both by Frank Peretti.

I wish he has stayed with the angel books rather than getting darker and more horror prone with his later books.


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

I didn't like his later works - The Oath, Hangman, etc. He went too deep into the hardcore supernatural - bordering on horror for me.

At least with the angels and demons given personas it maintained a even-handedness and didn't feel so creepy.


message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes, to some, he's become the "Stephen King" of Christian thrillers.


message 43: by Nike (new)

Nike Chillemi I'm reading Steven James series with FBI agent Patrick Bowers. Luv it. Very gritty as it's about serial killers. I've finished The Pawn, The Rook, and the Knight. I'm going to read The Queen and finish the series.

Also, The Clouds Roll Away by Sibella Giorello.


message 44: by Nicole (new)

Nicole (Nicole3562) | 4 comments There is a book out The Knights of the Dawn Kingthat is sort of a Tolkeinesque type story but challenges us in the area of loyalty to our true King of Kings, Jesus. I read it recently. I loved the story and was impressed with the blatant Christian theme...its basically a Christian allegory. So you get a great story and a great message all in one.:)

that sounds like a good book. Right now I am reading "Red" from the Circle series


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

my mom read the Priest's Graveyard by Ted Dekker and said it something NO christian should read or write. i am a very big dekker fan and love all of his books that i've read, but she made me promise NEVER to read this book. It's said really that he'd do that...

Anyway-good Christian books:

1: The Price of Trust by Amanda Stephan The Price of Trust by Amanda Stephan
2: The Lost Books by ted dekker The Lost Books Box Set (The Lost Books Series, #1-6) by Ted Dekker

Sara Migers | 2 comments I recommend ,,He liked Tuesdays best". It is a great book, which allows readers to explore unknown fact about the normal, everyday life of Pope John Paul II.

message 50: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Stephan (amandastephan) I started reading Until Forever yesterday, and it promises to be a keeper!

I just finished Beyond the Dead Forest and it was absolutely excellent. Loved it and would recommend it to anyone.

Shawn - I've seen the cover for Allon 4 and it looks fantastic. Can hardly wait to read them!
