Which Christian books have you recommended to a friend?

Bookish Question #48: Which Christian books have you recommended to a friend?

Lots! I am a book blogger, after all. A lot of my reviews are recommendations, although they’re often recommendations to the world at large rather than to specific friends.

So which Christian books have I recommended most recently?

The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner

Recommended to friends looking for a fun contemporary romance read, but one that’s both 100% Christian and 100% set in the real world with fallen people where not everyone is a Christian. Click here to read my review.

Grace in Strange Disguise by Christine Dillon

Recommended to someone looking for a Christian book that’s not a romance, and that makes the reader think.

I edited Grace in Strange Disguise, so haven’t reviewed it. But you can check out this review from Natalie McNee at Australasian Writers.


Atonement Child by Francine Rivers

Atonement Child is a classic story from the author of Redeeming Love, and A Voice in the Wind. It’s about a college student who falls pregnant after being raped (skip Chapter One if that bothers you), and who has to fight to keep her baby. It’s a challenging read, but it’s an encouraging read for people who are hurting. It also has the dubious honour of the book I loan out and never get back. I’ve now bought it three times. Yes, it’s that good.

    I tend to recommend books that have personally impacted me or are ‘best of a category’. For example, if someone wants Christian suspense I have recommendations or mysteries. I try to match the book to the person.
