    Reading the following for fun, ministry or class:

    Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild by Mary Kassian-love this young or old
    Satisfy My Thirsty Soul by Linda Dillow- this study on worship is changing my walk
    Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazarro (sp?)- good read
    The Trellis and the Vine
    Life Together
    Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler- highly recommend this book, great pastor and a new look on the gospel
    What did you expect? by Paul Tripp- he came and gave the conference on this post and it was powerful

    Just downloaded 'A voice in the Wind' by Francine Rivers - it's Christian Fiction. Read her redeeming love and found it absolutely amazing and thought i'd try this out

    That trilogy is awesome! I read redeeming love four or five times and the mark of the lion too and loved rivers. Then i read 'lineage of grace' also by rivers and they were ok. I wanted to keep reading her books but 'and the shodar blew' and 'scarlet thread' turned me off her...too mills&boony for me. Kinda like karen kingsbury whose books i cannot stand.
    My fav. Christian fiction authors were ted dekker and frank peretti - christian fiction that is meaty and not preachy.

    Sacred Marriage is fantastic!! I would recommend to all single and married men and women. It'll be great if Christians can view and understand marriage the way God does and not the way the world does.

    I'll put ' The secret inner lives of men' on my list for next month :look:

    So many great recommendations in this thread. I can't decide where to start.

    Here's my recommendation: Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

    oh i have another suggestion
    The books are fiction

    The Legends of the Guardian King Series by Karen Hancock (fantasy)
    Book 1 of Legends of the Guardian King which follows the life of Abramm Kalladorne in his turbulent search for truth and self--a search that will transform him from a sickly, head-in-the-clouds youth to a legendary hero of strength and courage... his journey illustrates how God pursues and how He uses suffering to mold His children into something greater than was ever thought possible.

    **I'm really enjoying these so far. I'm on book 3. Also, man there was some scenes in book 1 that creeped me out

    Also it's free for kindle!

    Arena by Karen Hancock - (scifi)
    Callie Hayes is living a life of fear and disillusionment when she volunteers for a psychology experiment that promises to turn her life around. As her orientation proceeds, Callie becomes frightened...When she demands to be released from the program, she is suddenly dropped into a terrifying alien world and into a perilous battle between good and evil...Will she decipher the plans the Benefactor has established for her escape, or will she succumb to the deception of the Arena?

    **An awesome allegorical scifi story. It really made me think. I don't want to spoil anyone, but the I would get frustrated with some of the protag's decisions but i realized that her literal (wrong) decisions mirror ours on our Christian walk.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for some humorous books fiction or non fiction. A mystery would be good too.
