With the summer holidays approaching it is always good to be thinking about what books you might like to read while on the beach or whilst sat in a cafe (well we can dream). Now I know that it is always nice to take a good fictional novel away with us that we can get lost in but it is also worth thinking about taking a book that might help you in your Christian walk and help you not to take a holiday from God!
I recently sent a list of books that (I think) all Christians should read before they die to our ‘Man Skills‘ group. These are all books that have had a profound affect on me over the years and so I thought it worth sharing with every one.
I have also put a link next to them all so you can just click on it and go ahead and buy them straight away.
If you think I have missed any then please let me know! And you are not allowed to say “the bible”, that is a given!
