I always recommend Carolyn Custis James’ books: When Life and Beliefs Collide, Lost Women of the Bible, The Gospel of Ruth!
Here are some others–and I hope to add more soon:
Certainly share your sentiment of James’ “When Life and Beliefs Collide.” I have read it three times, and have taught from it twice. We have it on our mentoring roster for the first season (which begins next fall) so we will definitely be talking about the book in more detail here later in the New Year.
I’m reading “The Gospel of Ruth” as soon as I finish this semester. It is first on my reading list!
Just wanted to add, Joshua Harris is a great author. I was blessed with 2 of his books several years ago and it is defintely a must read for Singles. I was gonna inquire, Natasha about more of his books, but thanks for your reccommendations. Theses would probably be good gifts throughout the year as well.
I agree, Renee. I definitely recommend having those 2 books 🙂 on hand for the Teens Before Parents ministry. I don’t recall if you have read “Not Even a Hint.” I highly recommend it! It’s a very easy and quick read, but certainly a great resource and reference time and time again. I love you! Miss you too!
Must reading: Half the Sky by Kristoff and WuDunn and Half the Church by Carolyn Custis james.
My favorite authors: Ken Gire–just reread Windows of the Soul
Brennan Manning–recently read The Furious Longing of God
