This one is a little easier for me since one of our criteria is books that changed our lives. Here are my five:
Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis— This book started me on a quest to read (and collect) every book by and about C. S. Lewis. I found that the things he said resonated with me. In fact, he could put into words ideas I had not been able to express.
Walking on Water by Madeleine L’Engle— I’ve read and reread this book so many times I’m on my second copy.
Prayer by Richard Foster— This book changed my life. It came at a transition time and opened up a whole new world for me.
Traveling Mercies by Anne Lamott— This book is filled with rich examples of the Hound of Heaven– the God who pursues.
Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh— Simple seaside devotions to chew on for a lifetime.
I promised when I started on Monday I would not include friends or clients’ books otherwise I would have added Magnificent Prayer by Nick Harrison. I’ve used it twice fror yearly devotions and it never gets old.
Those are my Favorite Five. What are yours?
