Looking for something more?
I get asked questions about my faith and what books I'd recommend on the topic quite a bit, and I am happy to help!
Just so we're on the same page...
I am a Christian. I talk with God throughout every day and I believe He is both the mighty Creator and deeply desires to be in intimate friendship with us.
I believe acts of hate are committed using the name of Jesus and that it absolutely breaks His heart. The hating, harming, and pushing away of other people does NOT reflect the character of the Jesus I know and love, or the God you'll see in the Bible.
If you're a "religious newbie" and want some beginner recommendations for where to look and what to read, I got'choo girl.
I pulled together a few of my faves then got some others from a trusted, wise friend and wrote them here for you.
Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller
What We Talk About When We Talk About God by Rob Bell
Unapologetic by Francis Spufford
Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense by N.T. Wright
