What Are the 25 Essential Books for the Christian Devotional Life?

25 BOOKS EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD READ by RenovareIn 25 Books Every Christian Should Read, Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Phyllis Tickle, Chris Webb, and a diverse editorial board of authors and speakers from a variety of Christian traditions—including Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant—have identified the most helpful and historic books for Christians, and they've created a resource that will lead educators and students on a journey of discipleship.
These are the 25 books that should be shaping the church, faith, and every Christian's engagement in the world. From classics like The Imitation of Christ to unexpected selections such as Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, 25 Books Every Christian Should Read provides historical background for each work, explains its importance for modern Christians, and includes excerpts from every book to get students started. In addition, each chapter ends with discussion questions to the work.

And, educators will find even more resources—including a free sample chapter to download—at Renovar√©.
