The Booklist

This list is limited to Christian non-ficiton. But even with that qualification it is not complete, for I know that there are many other substantial Christian works which I have not yet read. Beyond that, even as a list of Christian non-fiction which I have read, the list is incomplete, as it only includes books which I have read since the start of 2005, when I began to cultivate an interest in regular Christian reading and started a personal booklist. Since I don't know that I can recall all of the books I read previously (nor, since it has been so long, exactly where I'd place them on this list) I have decided to relist only the books I've read since 2005. Several of the "older" titles stand out, however, as books which I would still like to recommend. These include C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity, Chuck Colson and Nancy Pearcey's How Now Shall We Live?, and Josh Harris' I Kissed Dating Goodbye and Boy Meets Girl, and Henry Morris' The Genesis Record. I'm sure that there are others, but, as I said, I can't remember all of the titles I've read.

All books are listed alphabetically by rating. Those that are hyperlinked have reviews that I have written on this blog. For more on the ratings, as well as a background on why I've decided to write book reviews, please read "Why Review?"
