    Default Christian books??

    Hey everyone! So is it just me? Or do other Christians find it hard to find good books to read?? Every book I pick up has something to do with homosexuality or lust. Does anyone have any good Christian based books to recommend to me? I don’t mind reading about these things if it becomes a testimony to how the character has changed. It doesn’t appear to be this way. So anyone have any recommendations for me??

    I have read over a 1000 books in my life and not one had to do with homosexuality or lust. I suggest a site that sells quality used books inexpensively. You certainly don't have to limit yourself to strictly Christian books which would probably be quite boring and unimaginative. You may enjoy Christian romance books but I guess that's a woman thing.

    I have dozens... hundreds, if you like. But, you seem to be wanting modern authorship about things that have happened to people. I honestly don't read too many books about contemporary people.

    If we ever get together again, I will bring you a very small book edited by Walter Wink, entitled, "Homosexuality and Christian Faith". I only made it about halfway through the thing. (I have a tendency to buy books on impulse.)

    Are you looking for fiction or non-fiction? Kind of a vague request. Any more specifics?

    What allures and arouses the heart we can't figure out
    But it's the quickest way to account for what we prize
    And are most proud about
    These gods make promises but always lie to us
    The kinds of lies that says they'll keep us safe and satisfy us
    We blame the lies outside of us
    But it's the lie that lies inside that captures the depth of desires and false messiahs

    Read the classic "The Pilgrim's Progress."

    People are offended that God is God.

    Oh, my brethren! bold-hearted men are always called mean-spirited by cowards. - Charles Spurgeon

    Open Theism and Molinism, two inept theological camps, do err in this sense; God doesn't have an R&D department, He does all things perfectly.

    A god who can be fashioned by our own thoughts is no more a god than an image produced by our own hands. - Charles Spurgeon

    Well fiction or non fiction. I guess it doesn’t matter whether it’s Christian or not, but I guess I meant something along the lines of The Cross and the Switchblade and not something like Eat,Pray,Love.

    I'd recommend biographies of great preachers and missionaries...

    their lives are usually much stranger than fiction.

    No, mostly adult fiction with some non-fiction on various topics.

    I've read this and it was really great. While i don't agree with his Charismatic leanings in the book, it's still a great story.

    This book i have not read, but want to. But i've heard her give her testimony and it's pretty awesome.

    I feel you want Christian themed fiction books then Tedd Dekker is for you.
