25 Books Every Christian Should Read

by Julia L. Roller

What are the 25 essen­tial books for the Chris­t­ian devo­tion­al life? 

In 25 Books Every Chris­t­ian Should Read, Richard Fos­ter, Dal­las Willard, Phyl­lis Tick­le, Chris Webb, and a diverse edi­to­r­i­al board of lead­ers have iden­ti­fied the most help­ful and his­toric books for Chris­t­ian dis­ci­ple­ship and cre­at­ed a resource that helps us make the most of them. With siz­able excerpts from each book, 25 Books helps indi­vid­ual read­ers and small groups get a taste of and work through the most impor­tant books for for­ma­tion in Christ­like­ness. It is a reader’s guide for the devo­tion­al his­to­ry of the Church. From On the Incar­na­tion by St. Athana­sius to Pen­sées by Blaise Pas­cal to The Return of the Prodi­gal Son by Hen­ri Nouwen, this list and this resource will lead you on a jour­ney of dis­ci­ple­ship that few in the his­to­ry of the Church have expe­ri­enced and help you become like Jesus. 

25 Books includes in each chapter: 

  • a thor­ough overview of the book
  • insight into why it is an essen­tial classic
  • guid­ance for your reading
  • an extend­ed excerpt (twice as long as Renovaré’s Devo­tion­al Clas­sics)
  • a Study Guide for each book

25 Books also includes a list and anno­tat­ed bib­li­og­ra­phy of vital con­tem­po­rary authors (Richard Fos­ter, Wen­dell Berry, etc.) and My Per­son­al Top 5” lists from the edi­to­r­i­al board and oth­er estab­lished and up-and-com­ing Chris­t­ian leaders.
