This year, to cut out the things that distract me from my relationship with God, I'm giving up books1. Not all books, though, just the secular2 ones, which is, basically, everything I read. My TBR for next 40 days or so will contain only works of Christian fiction and nonfiction.
Now for the challenge part: I'm opening up my personal challenge to all my readers! It's pretty simple, too.
To give you an idea of what books I'm talking about, here's a list authors4:
- C.S. Lewis3
- Scott Hahn
- Madeleine L'Engle
- Gertrud Von Le Fort
- Robin Caroll
- Christian M Frank
- Tosca Lee (Havah)*5
- Colleen Coble (Lightkeeper's Ball)*
- Ronie Kendig (Digitalis)*
- Camy Tang (Only Uni)*
- Cheryl Wyatt (Steadfast Soldier)*
- James Rubart (Rooms)*
- Brandilyn Collins (Deceit)*
- Rachel Hauck (Dining With Joy)*
- Kristen Billerbeck (A Billion Reasons Why)*
Orchid of The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia
2 Secular = non-Christian.
3 I'm really excited to finish reading CS Lewis' Signature Classics (Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Problem of Pain, Miracles, and A Grief Observed), which I got for Christmas, and the Chronicles of Narnia which I won from Ky of Can't Find a Bookmark.
4 Feel free to suggest any other Christian authors or titles, fiction or nonfiction, in a comment. Much obliged.
5 Thanks to Robin Caroll for suggesting all the authors and titles marked with *'s
