Books of Note

A few days ago, I told you about four of my favorite movies. Today, I would like to talk about some of my favorite authors. I was thinking about doing my favorite books but those who read a lot will understand that it is hard to pick favorite books, but favorite authors you can instantly name. So here are four of my favorite authors.

The Gospel According to Jesus: What Does Jesus Mean When He Says "Follow Me"?
John MacArthur is one of my absolute favorite authors. I just recently read one of his older books, The Gospel According to Jesus which is a really good book on what exactly the gospel is and how to identify false gospels. I have yet to read a book by John MacArthur that has not challenged me to lead a more godly life.

Reaching for the Invisible God: What Can We Expect to Find?
Philip Yancy is another of my favorite authors. I have read several of his books; most recently I read his book, Reaching for the Invisible God I have truly never read books that are more down to earth yet thought provoking. One of the things that is neat about Philip Yancy is that he is not a pastor; he is a normal guy who struggles with normal things.

 The Secrets of Heathersleigh Hall The Eleventh Hour (Secret of the Rose #1)
I love to relax with a good fiction book by Michael Philips. I really enjoy his style of writing and the way he brings his faith into his books without making them over the top. He also is very good at giving you a feel for the time period that his books are set in. Whether it is the 1800’s like in his book series Secrets of Heathersleigh Hall, or Germany in World War II as in his book series The Secret of the Rose, he makes you feel like you are there.

The last author that I would like to tell you about in one that wrote during the 1900’s, her name is Grace Livingston Hill. She is a wonderful story teller and a strong Christian, and though her books are somewhat predictable, they are great for reading before you go to bed and when you don’t feel well.

So those are four of my favorite authors. What are yours?
