I love to read. I must confess that I do not read as much as I should, but when I get into a good book, it’s pretty hard to stop. However, I think I need to explain the reason I chose to list this specific category of books. You see, as I have heard before “a book, a movie, or a music album can’t be baptized and follow Christ.” I agree with this wholeheartedly. But in this case specifically, I felt "Christian" was the best way to describe this category. These are books that are written to a Christian audience with the intention of exhorting other Christians to do what is right, or to just share their story for the purpose of encouragement.
For now, I will just give a brief explanation of the book and its author(s). A few of these books may get a more full review in the future, but we will see. I will also briefly mention unique stories of how I can to find these books as they apply.
The reason I can to learn about this book is because at the beginning of this year, I was chosen to be a member of the book team to promote the book prior to the release of the Fifty Shades movie. I worked with Authentic Intimacy and a team of about 350 women from all over the world to encourage everyone to understand sex and intimacy the way God intended it. I also now have a copy signed by the authors. Because of my involvement with the book team, I have already reviewed this book. If you want to see this review, click here.
Well there you have it. I hope this list of my favorite Christian books will inspire you to add a few of these books to your summer reading list. All of these books have impacted and challenged me in different ways and I hope they will do the same for you, if you choose to pick them up and read them for yourselves. If any of you have other questions about these books, feel free to ask. Stay tuned for another post at the end of the week!
Lion's Eyes Reviews is a blog dedicated to reviews of Christian books, most of which are non-fiction, but may also occasionally review movies and musicals. It will also feature the work Bethel does to help launch and promote the works of Christian authors.
The name is derived from one of Bethel's favorite books, Through the Eyes of a Lion by Levi Lusko. Through these reviews, Bethel hope to give Christians the tools they need to look at the world "through the eyes of a lion" so they can find the courage to "run toward the roar".
