Now that it’s Spring, and the trees are budding, and Summer is coming, it’s time to start thinking about which Christian books you’ll read this summer. Reading is a great way to grow as a Christian. Even if you’re not a reader by nature, set yourself a goal to read a little bit each day. Perhaps choose just one of these books and make it your summer project. Or, read them all!
There are lots and lots of great options out there — these are just a few. I’ve chosen some for all ages, and I’ve linked in each case to the Westminster Bookstore, which often has phenomenal prices, and is a great place to browse books. Sometimes I go there just to get good reading ideas.
Tolle lege! (take up and read)
