Today’s topic, Non-Fiction Book, is a bit harder for me to choose. I read a LOT of non-fiction books. A few of my favorites include The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer, The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, and My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers.
In my What is Your Love Language post, I shared about some of the reasons why I love Chapman’s book. I’ve read it at least ten times, and plan to read it many more. I think it should be mandatory reading for all engaged couples. It would certainly alleviate a lot of unnecessary headache later in the relationship!
Tozer’s practical and impassioned writing in The Pursuit of God has challenged many Christians to truly know God. His writing has changed many lives, including my own.
Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest is probably one of the greatest devotionals ever published. By encouraging you to explore your own humanity, he sheds light on our profound need for God.
I’ve noticed recently that Sister is a bit, eh hem, tenacious. I was talking with a friend and how frustrating it can be to tell her no five HUNDRED times, only to have her look at me and try to do it again. She suggested that I read The Five Love Languages of Children. I’m going to give it a try, because while her tenacity will one day earn her praise in the work force, it is driving her Momma BATTY.
Of course, I have to finish the three books I have going now…
What are your favorite non-fiction books? Do you have any that you keep going back to?
