Top 15 Christian novels/books in 2021
If you want to know God, you have to delve into the Bible. The Bible is the special revelation we have. It is the Word of our Lord and Savior and it is light onto our heart. There is no higher booklet But we must also clarify that it is God’s will that we be taught by pastors and men whom He uses to make us better understand the richness in his Word. That is why we read Christian books , and we try to do so with discernment, In that sense the best books are the ones that help you dig deeper into the word of God
Thinking about that, here are the best books to further widen your scope on Christianity
Survey of the old testament by Paul. N. Benware
The New Testament Scriptures will never be properly understood by a person if the Old Testament Scriptures essentially remain a mystery to him,” says Paul Benware.
Most Christians do not have a clear understanding of the pattern, unity, or progression of the Old Testament. They can tell stories of Moses, Noah, and David, but they aren’t sure how all these events fit together. And they don’t fully appreciate the doctrines found in the thirty-nine books between Genesis and Malachi. This book broadens the scoop of the old testament.
Priceless by Joel Smallbone
you are a pearl of great price. Do not cheapen your own treasure.”
I recommend this book for Christians to read, this is for anyone who has a daughter, sister, or any female friends or relatives…or is a female herself. It really carries past the struggle of slavery and into our everyday lives, affecting how we see ourselves, and how we value ourselves and feel we should be valued.
Indivisible: by Travis Thrasher
This book summarizes the need or impact of faith in any Christian’s life and the need to take a step towards redemption for new believers this book with strengthen you for what Lay’s ahead.
The Holiness of God by RC Sproul
A brilliant exposure direct to our hearts and minds of the holiness of God and the sin of man. For many (myself included), it is a classic of contemporary Christian literature. Without a doubt, one of the best books I have read so far.
How to hear God’s voice by Charles Stanley
Charles Stanley is a faithful teacher of the Bible, who is in charge of teaching his audience through his lectures and books, about controversial and important topics such as this book.
In the midst of today’s sensationalism and emotionalism, the teaching presented in this book is ideal for helping people understand that God’s voice is not heard audibly, but rather through reading the Bible, not the other way round.
The New City Catechism by Collin Hansen
In his presentation says, this “is a modern, gospel-centered resource that not only summarizes the most important Christian beliefs through fifty-two questions and answers, but also helps readers to be transformed through these doctrines ”. It is excellent not only for personal reading, but also for study groups.
Biblical Doctrine by Wayne Grudem
The Essential Teachings of the Christian Faith , by Wayne Grudem. Its author is, in my opinion, one of the best theologians of the last decades and here he presents in an excellent way the most essential things every believer should know about theology.
The Delights of God by John Piper
Starting from the idea that “the worth and excellence of a soul is measured by the object of its love,” my favorite fallible preacher examines what the Bible says about the things in which God delights, why he delights in them, and how this reveals to us the heart of God. It is a deeply solid and devotional book at the same time. I think it is one of the ones that has impacted my life the most.
God’s reason by Timothy Keller
Skepticism has been part of the Christian Church in recent years, sadly because of the bad teaching and ignorance of the scriptures on the part of many “Christians” there are quite a few questions that arise around the idea of God and his sovereignty in all things of life.
In this sense, Pastor Timothy Keller has developed his book called: The reason for God , in order to demonstrate that faith in God is the greatest feeling, sustained by people of proven intellectual integrity and with a genuine compassion for all who really want to know the truth.
In its pages questions resolved are: Why does God allow suffering in the world? How can a loving God send people to hell? And many more.
Radical by David Platt
David Platt teaches that biblically as Christianity we ought be “radical” in our culture. The Christianity that seeks to take the gospel seriously with its implications. This book is confrontational and whenever I read it it pushes me to be more genuine in the way I live.
The Mystery Revealed by Edmund Clowne
Discovering Christ in the Old Testament , by Edmund Clowney. The whole Bible is about Jesus. Clowney will help you see that by tracing the story of redemption from Genesis. This book provides an excellent overview of the entire story in the Bible. It is an excellent introduction to what is known as biblical theology.
The Knowledge of the Holy God by JI Packer
This is a modern classic that should not be missing in your library. It exposes in a very biblical way the attributes of God and the glory of the gospel of Christ, applying biblical doctrine to the daily life of the believer. When you read it, you will discover why it has been such a powerful and influential book for millions of believers.
Systematic Theology by Louis Berkhof
It is certainly a bit heavier to read than Grudem’s, but it approaches theology from a more Reformed perspective. Really excellent. If you are intimidated by its size and language, I recommend that you try Introduction to Systematic Theology , by the same author.
Wild at Heart by John Eldredge
John Eldredge offers a look deep into the heart of the male, of whom he says that since childhood he yearns to be a warrior, a hero, a conqueror. The problem arises with the passing of time and customs, it is sought to tame man and take away those unique qualities with which God has provided him. Although at first glance it may seem aimed exclusively at men, Wild at Heart will also be very useful for mothers who need guidance in raising their children or for women who do not understand their husband.
It helped me personally not only to meditate on myself but especially to think about how I should guide my children in their growth and development process.
More Than a Carpenter by Josh and Sean McDowell
Josh McDowell is one of the most recognized Christian apologists and More Than a Carpenter is one of his most famous works. Here he presents clear evidence that helped him, a young agnostic, understand who the Jesus of whom the New Testament speaks and why we can trust him.
This books will be very valuable for those who have doubts about the veracity of Christ’s existence or for those who wish to strengthen their faith to answer the questions of others. Do not limit yourself to this books Christian should read. We Christian read books Because we love the the word of God.
Christians embrace the truth that the revelation we have in the Bible is sufficient, it is all we need to know in order to live as God wants us to (2 Timothy 3: 16-17). Sola Scriptura.
We also believe that the Holy Spirit has the power to enlighten the eyes of our understanding so that we can understand the Word of God when we approach it with a heart willing to learn and love God (Ephesians 1:18).
So Christians like me do not underestimate the Word of God or underestimate the Holy Spirit when we read Christian books, we read because we love the Bible, because it is the Word that God has revealed.
In the Bible it is clear that we need to think about the Word of God so that we can understand it (Proverbs 2: 1-6, 2 Timothy 2: 7). God gives knowledge and understanding, but we think. We also need to bear in mind that Christians are a body made up of several people throughout history (1 Corinthians 12:12) and we have brothers in faith who have understood better than us, thanks to God, some things that cost us understand.
