Ten More Books Every Christian Should Have

February 7, 2011

This time, Michael Patton at Parchment and Pen offers his list of the ten books every Christian should have:

1.  2.  3. 

4.  5.  6. 

7.  8.  9. 



  1. Romans by John Stott
  2. Grace Awakening by Charles Swindoll
  3. Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
  4. Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan
  5. The Cross of Christ by John Stott
  6. How to Read the Bible for all its Worth by Gordon Fee
  7. Evangelical Dictionary of Theology
  8. Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem
  9. Expositor’s Bible Commentary (12 vol). Old TestamentNew Testament
  10. The Story of Christianity (volume 1 and 2) by Justo Gonzalez

  1. I just read “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis 2 months ago and was completely impressed; I felt like underlining every line in the entire book because every line was monumental.

    I think Michael Patton is missing one book from the list, though…”Crazy Love” by Francis Chan.

    So down to earth, but so life-changing…

  2. Mere Christianity was a huge influence on me when I read it right out of college. It pulled me out of some legalism that I grew up holding to, and expanded my understanding of Christianity outside the deep south. Thanks for the comment!
