I want to create a thread for us to recommend books to each other.

The first book I will recommend is Mere Christianity by CS Lewis

I've heard "Every Young Man's battle" is a good one for u boys too

For every engaged or married woman, I would recommend For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhan. It provides surprising insights into how men think.

'Case for Christ' is indeed an excellent book. Also, it is hard to do better than anything by CS Lewis. Mere Christianity Screams to be read by believers and non believers as well.
I read quite a bit and just finished 'Monster' by Frank Peretti.
For real life drama, I would recomend 'In The Heart Of The Sea'. This is actually the true story that Moby Dick was derived from. Most folks don't know that there is a factual side to that fiction and it is an amazing example of human suffering and survival.
For funny I suppose I would suggest 'Missing Links' A funny ficional look at some real rag tag golfers.
For action/suspense most anything by Tom Clancy but his 'Cardinal of the Kremlin' is a real classic! :-D

I basically reccomend anything by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. A few awsome books were The Oath, Monster, Thr3e, Showdown, and my favorite, House by these authers together.

On the non-christian side anything by Robert Ludlum and Clive Cussler. For Example, The Bourne Identity, Supremacy, the Ultimatum, ;and The Bancroft Strategy, The Ambler Warning, and The Sigma Protocol By Robert Ludlum. Finally by Clive Cussler, The Oregon File books, The Navigator, Polar Shift, Raise The Titanic, and Iceberg.

I love Frank Peretti. I read This Present Darkness and This Piercing Darkness. They give you a lot to think about. Loved them. I really like Max Lucado too. He has a no nonsence approach to things and makes it really easy to understand everything. Puts it all in layman's terms. Great reads.

This Present Darkness is a really good read. I also love the books David Crowder writes: Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven But Nobody Wants To Die, and Praise Habit: Finding God In Sunsets and Sushi. Both are amazing. Jesus Freaks is also another favorite, although it can be graphic and is not for the squeamish or faint of heart (it talks about Christian martyrs basically).

I love the movie Hangmans Curse. I watched it in youth group and nearly died when I saw all the spiders (yucky little things).
