I was at the bookstore today and I cosidered buying some C.S. Lewis, but I had only ever read his fiction, which, while I highly enjoyed, is not the same as nonfiction. I don't really like reading nonfiction. So I'm looking to see if you have any to recommend, that I can get engrossed in.

So, does anyone want to share some of their favorite books? I'm looking for anything here; essays about christianity, inspirational stories, religious fiction. Please share some of your favorites smilies/icon_smile.gif

My favorite Christian fiction is the Pilgrim's Progress. It has been class the best book next to the Bible. Pilgrim's Progress catalogs the journey of Christian, a man who is seeking his salvation on a pilgrimage to Heaven. Along the way, Christian encounters many obstacles that test his faith as well as many characters that are useful in showing him the difference between right and wrong, from the perspective of Christian religious faith. After Christian attains his heavenly reward, his family completes a pilgrimage to join him. Told as a dream, this seventeenth century religious classic uses Bible verses mixed with allegorical characters to preach its evangelist message.

Armageddon Summer

It's a great piece of teen fiction I came across years ago. Wonderful romance and message.

What about The Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings Trilogy? These are often over-looked. The author IS a Christian and although his writing do not always reflect that..It is easy to pick up on if you look for it.

Also, for a good quick read try 'I am not but I know I AM.' by Louie Giglio. It brings up questions that are not always easy to answer. Also, it introduces how small and finite we are while showing how large and infinite God is. This book really changed my out-look on life. =D
