Blackaby’s Reading List

Books3 Since we have been talking about our summer reading, I thought some of our Pointificators might enjoy seeing Henry Blackaby's recommended reading list. One thing you'll note right away: there are no "beach books" here! In fact, working your way through this reading list, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, just might change your soul forever. 

A few of my favorites from the list (beyond the obvious, Blackaby's own Experiencing God) are these:

George Müller, The Autobiography of George Müller
Jerry Bridges, The Pursuit of Holiness
Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
A. W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

What are some of your favorites from Dr. Blackaby's list?

What immediately strikes me is that there is no fiction. Stories have so much to teach us. They seem to illuminate truth in a way that non-fiction cannot.

Amanda Bush

C.S. Lewis often used fiction to engage the broader culture.

It is easy for a layman to be overawed by a preachers choices in literature. It must be remembered that the motive is as much professional as pious and the fact that one does not read as great a proportion of Churchy books shouldn't be taken to heart.

As an English teacher, and avid reader of literature, I agree that fiction is a great way to convey truth. See the recent Worldview magazine article by Mary deMuth on why Christians should read fiction. She says it far, far better than I can.
