  • 'the five love languages of children', by gary chapman and ross campbell. it is labeled 'xtian', and there of course is a xtian bend to their message, but its a good eye-opener for any busy parent, to look beyond the obvious, and really SEE their children and the 'messages' their children are sending.
    i'd recommend it to anyone..even if you think you are parenting fine and your children are good. its a great book.

  • I agree-The Shack
    I know its a taboo book in some churches but it is a great book!

  • You really want to know? LOL Rediscovering Catholicism by Matthew Kelly. There are a number of points in this book that most Christians would agree with. Before I go, Letters to Our Children About What Really Matters, by Peter Kreeft.

  • I personally like Brian McLaren, and Karen Armstrong....

    Lee Strobel, I have heard, is one that most Christians like. :)

  • Oh, and I also loved Owen Chadwick's History of Christianity, and David Hart's Story of Christianity.

    And Renovation of the Heart, by Dallas Willard and Randy Frazee was good, too. :)

  • right now im reading "Velvet Elvis" by Rob Bell and its amazing! but i wouldnt recommend it if you're super conservative as it possibly will step on your toes. also "More Jesus, Less Religion" by Stephen Arterburn & Jack Felton is good, but i havent finished it.
