    This book reviews 25 important Christian books (according to the folks at Renovare') that will change your life. In the foreword Chris Webb asks, "Are there any definitive books every Christian should read, other than the Bible itself?" Then he goes on to answer that questions from the viewpoint of the staff at Renovare'. They feel that Christians need to be well read in their Bible, memorize scripture, study scripture and apply scripture. But they also feel that Christians need to be well read in the "Classics" of Christian thought as presented in the writings of wise saints, poets, thinkers and the early church fathers.

    As such they have put this first book together to highlight what they feel are the 25 most important texts for us to read in conjunction with our Bible. The book will introduce you to each of the 25 books, their authors and give you a biography of that author and a synopsis of the book itself. They include excerpts from the books to whet your appetite for what you will find when you get your hands on the actual book.

    Here is a sampling of the great Christian thinkers that they write about; St. Athanasius, St. Augustine, Thomas a Kempis, Brother Lawrence, G.K. Chesteron, etc. etc. This book lives up to one of the main claims in the introduction. It serves as a handbook to have beside you as you read the great works by these authors. It gives you good information and help in knowing what it is you are about to delve into.

    One other point to make, the committee wants to make it perfectly clear that these books will change your life. BUT, they are not just easy reads. They are books that you must dig into, you must read and read again to catch the truths contain in them. They are scholarly works that demand attentive reading.

    I can't really say a lot more about how wonderful this guide book is. If you are truly interested in the great thinkers of Christianity then this is a wonderful guide book that you MUST have in your library.

    Enjoy!
