The following are books on theology, Christian living, and devotionals that I’ve read and would highly recommend!

“Screwtape Letters” is a must-read book by C.S. Lewis, in which he uses satire with a tinge of truth to write a series of letters from a demon named Screwtape, to his nephew, Wormwood. In the letters, Screwtape instructs his nephew on how to successfully distance a man, known as “the Patient,” from God and ensure that he does not get saved.
I personally loved this book for its hilarious, but shockingly relatable description of demonic forces in the Christian life.
“Fearless” by Max Lucado is a highly relatable book on how a Christian should approach fear, and rely on God’s promises to overcome fear. In each chapter, Lucado tackles a different fear (e.g. fear of worst case scenario, fear of death) with truth from scripture and personal anecdotes. Fear is a universal human experience that definitely warrants its own book.
Reading this book brought me a lot of peace and calm, and helped me to face my own fears in a biblical way.
This book can also be used as a devotional, as it has discussion questions for each chapter at the back of the book.
“Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God” is a book by pastor, church planter, author, and thought leader Francis Chan. It is a book about God’s crazy love, which stirs in us a passionate desire to radically live for God. Chan does an amazing job of challenging religious thought by revealing God’s love for us, and how Christianity is ultimately a call for believers to fall in love with God and who He is.
This book definitely challenged a lot of my preconceived notions about Christianity and caused me to think about God in a whole different light. This is worth a read and a re-read for every believer!
