I have some very favorite authors that I would like to share. Josh MacDowell, Evidence that Demands a Verdict and others of his books. I also like Hank Hanegraft, Philip Yancy, John Ankerberg, Robert Lightener and Lee Strobel. Most of these are theology books, if you like that sort of thing. My favorite devotional book is "More Precious Than Silver" by Joni Erickson Tada.

Anxious to hear your favorites! smile.gif

The best one so far is the King James version of The Bible. It's the greatest love story that has ever been told. biggrin.gif

I'm also an NAS girl. All those thees and thous are just not my cup of tea, though I'm glad you enjoy it, Maggie.
As for Christian authors, I really love Elizabeth Elliot . . . what an amazing Christian woman! I've also heard that John Piper is excellant if you enjoy a challenging read. I also like C.S. Lewis -- highly recommend Mere Christianity-- and Lee Strobel's Case for Christ is great as well. One of my roommates has a book called Systematic Theology which answers many theological questions one might have. Rebecca Manley Pippert's Out of the Saltshaker is a great book on evangelism.
Happy reading to you all!

I am a fan of the Jerusalem Bible, personally. I also enjoy the Douay-Rheims version for that pre-King James flavor, with all the thees and thous.

I enjoy reading any of the theological works of St Alphonsus Liguori, especially The Holy Eucharist and Victories of the Martyrs.

I also enjoy any of the works by Joan Carroll Cruz. She has an accessible way of writing about spiritual subjects without making them seem banal. I especially enjoyed Eucharistic Miracles and The Incorruptibles.

Of course, anything by Hillaire Belloc, Scott Hahn, Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, or Canon Francis Ripley. Excellent writers and their theology is as orthodox as it comes.

I have also started reading some of the private locutions of Anne Catherine Emmerich. Mel Gibson based some of his imagery on his upcoming film The Passion of the Christ on her writings. Very spiritual and extremely intriguing. thumbs_up.gif

Just my tuppence.

Yes, he is a very traditional Catholic. His father, Hutton Gibson, is a real staunch advocate of the Latin mass, as is his son, but the father also has some really "out there" views. He has been excoriated by some of the press lately, in an apparent attempt to tie his views in with his son's and to apply it to the movie. Mel Gibson isn't as heterodox as his father, and I feel that this movie will be interesting and probably spiritually uplifting, as well as very sobering.

I started a thread on the Religion forum about it tonight.

And I plan on going, just not on Ash Wednesday, though. biggrin.gif

Just my tuppence.

The most interesting Christian book I ever read was City of God. Actually, I tried to read it, but could never get through all 3 books? 4 books? I don't remember now. Anyway, interesting read.

Are you referring to City of God by St. Augustine of Hippo? If so, it is a true classic of western philosophy, spirituality and theology. Excellent book. It can be found online here

The Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas is also excellent, if we are looking at medieval writings. The Summa can be found online here

Just my tuppence.

Andy - you may know this. Isn't there another set of City of God books writtern by Sister Faustina (whatever the rest of her name is)? Or am I just getting all my Catholic church/school education jumbled? It has been a while since I used it. tongue.gif
