These are the books I’m considering for the Christian Greats Challenge in 2019. Some of them are re-reads that I’d like to re-visit after a long separation. For details of the challenge see my original post here.
1) A Book on Early Church History:
On the Incarnation by Athanasius
2) A Book About a Prominent Christian Who Was Born Between 500 A.D & 1900
Not shown in the picture above as I haven’t decided yet 🙂
3) A Christian Allegory
Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard (a re-read because I just found a beautiful copy with watercolour illustrations) or Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis
4) A Book on Apologetics
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
5) A Philosophical Book by a Christian Author
Tending the Heart of Virtue by Vigen Guroian
6) A Missionary Biography
L’Abri by Edith Schaeffer (re-read) or Chasing the Dragon by Jackie Pullinger
7) A Seasonal Book
Marian @ Classics Considered linked to some ideas on Lenten reads which sparked my interest so there are a few ideas running through my head which I’ll mull over for awhile.
8) A Novel with a Christian Theme
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
9) A Good Old Detective or Mystery Novel
Unnatural Death by Dorothy Sayers. I would really like to re-read her books that include Harriet Vane who becomes Lord Peter Wimsey’s wife but I can’t find them & think my older children must have taken them when they left home. Looks like I might have to buy my own copies.
10) A Substitute
Every Good Endeavor by Timothy Keller
