These Are A Few (Of My Favorite Things)

I am infinitely curious as to what books people read, and what constitutes as being their "favorite" and why. It's hard not to judge, as I think one's favorite books can reveal a lot about a person.

But is is accurate and fair to judge that way? I'm not so sure! I know I read a wide amount of books. To base what I think or believe on what I'm reading currently would definitely misrepresent me! Some books I'll read even knowing I won't agree with them, yet I glean more understand, perhaps even different perspective

Since I love so many books, it's truly difficult to pinpoint the books that are my favorites, but here is a small list that I can think of off the top of my head.

1. C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity. A must-read staple in my opinion. (as is several of his others books)

2. Crazy Love by Frances Chan. A very convicting, thought-provoking book!

3. Forgotten God by Frances Chan. I think I like Chan. This one is on the Holy Spirit.

4. How Should We Then Live? by Frances Schaeffer. Wow. But a book you'll need to read at least twice!

5. On The Incarnation by St. Athanasius. Because I read it at Christmastime and it blew me away. (FREE online version HERE )

6. Desiring God by John Piper. Because everyone needs to read at least once John Piper book and this is a great one!

7. The Call by Os Guinness. Guinness is brilliant and this is a book to be read and re-read again and again.

8. Adopted For Life by Russell Moore. For some reason, I just really enjoyed this book.

9. Reason For God by Timothy Keller. Also The Prodigal God and Counterfeit Gods.

10. Uncompromised Faith: Overcoming Our Culturalized Christianity by S. Michael Craven

Oh, I know I have to re-organize my bookcase, and I do realize this list is all Christian Non-FIction. I read fiction and non-Christian books too. But that is another list.....


  1. amazon wish list keeps getting longer and longer..thanks Victoria! But for real...I wish I just could read faster. :)

    OH - I figured out why I can't get your blogs in my Reader...your page doesn't have a subscribe via RSS. Does this look familiar?

  2. Ha! Thanks for sending me the link about adding an RSS feed. Don't you yet realize that this isn't a "real" blog? I don't tell most people about it, I don't plug it on twitter, FB, etc.... it's hidden.

    I've no interest adding RSS but I just might..... for you.

  3. Ha! It's not hidden, that's where I found the link, was on your fb!! LOL. You don't have to add it though!
