Today I’m linking up with The Broke and Bookish for a Top Ten Tuesday post. The prompt for today was “Ten books we’d recommend to ________,” and I choose ten books I’d recommend to someone who wanted to read nonfiction. Even if you’ve never enjoyed nonfiction before, these books would be a great place for you to get your feet wet.
I came up with a variety of my four and five star reads, trying to stay away from books I’ve talked about recently. These books seriously contain fantastic stories, information, writing, and ideas. I’ll give a little blurb about each book below. I highly recommend all these books and have even bought extra copies of some of them to give away.
- Whatever the Cost
Written by identical twin brothers, this book is brimming with wit, laughter, and solid information.
- Life Creative
So, so beautiful. The book itself, the writing, the ideas that are shared. Living a balanced life while being a creative person is possible.
- 20 Things We’d Tell our Twenty-Something Selves
Told by a husband/wife team, the writing is honest, clear, and helpful. (What twenty-something person doesn’t need advice and honesty?)
- Every Body Matters
This one dives right into the heart of the matter that most people in the church today avoid.
- Screens and Teens
Yes, yes, and yes. How to have a healthy balance in today’s age of screens all over the place.
- Knowing God By Name
This book goes through various names of God, exploring what they really mean and who God really is.
- Dangerous Love
Getting shot by terrorists? Yep. Finding forgiveness? Yep. There’s a bit of an info dump near the beginning of the book, but when you get past that the story is riveting.
- God’s Smuggler
Smuggling. For God. Say, what??? Yeah – it’s a mouth-dropping (and sometimes laughable) true account of the life of a man from Holland.
- Forensic Faith
Picture this: A real-life detective sets out to prove that God couldn’t exist, and instead becomes a passionate Christian. Here’s how that happened.
- Control Girl
Nothing like wanting to take control of a situation (or should I say every situation). But that’s dangerous. Here’s a good look at just how dangerous that can be.
Have you read any of these books? Which looks most interesting to you?
