The Top Five Non-Fiction Books You Should Buy YOURSELF This Christmas

So glad you are back for today's list of books that you should be giving yourself this Christmas season! These books are non-fiction and are the best of the best. Let's get to it, shall we?

The Lost Commandment 
by Dave Greber

This book is so packed with information that it is a resource that can be used time and time again. It has the potential to transform the reader as well as the church as a whole. If we live our lives as this book suggests, more will be drawn to Christ as a result of being authentic Christians. This book should be in every church library on and on the bookshelf of every Christian.  You can find more on my review by clicking over here, The Lost Commandment.

Dinosaurs for Kids 
by Ken Ham

Ken presents a clear, credible theory about when dinosaurs lived - and it wasn't millions billions of years ago. His theory is that dinosaur and man actually walked the earth together. And he offers proof.  This is nothing like you'll get in public schools where they spoon feed children into believing their highly improbable theory (my opinion) of carbon dating - not to mention evolution.

My kids love pouring over this book.  And I liked reading it to them.  It taught me as much as it taught them.  They go back to it again and again.  You can find my review and product information, by clicking here.

At the Throne of Grace 
by John MacArthur

Coordinating scripture and prayers is what John MacArthur seems to do best. The prayers cut right to the heart of the matter by being specific enough to ring true and broad enough to appeal to a large spectrum of people. A person can never go wrong by praying scripture. Never.

A great deal of the prayers have touched me. I have been moved to tears by several of them. I highly recommend this book.

Blue Like Play-Doh 
by Tricia Goyer

Tricia writes openly and transparently about her life as a mom. I found so many similarities between us that it made me sigh in relief thinking, "At least I'm not the only one!" This is a great book for any mom.  Tricia is also a great fiction writer.  I highly recommend them also.

Raising a Modern Day Princess 
by Pam Farrel and Doreen Hanna

Doreen and Pam have hearts for young women and it shows in their writing and creative ideas to help make girls feel special and a princess of the King. The authors' idea of building up young women through mentoring is Biblical - a practice that must be deliberate, thoughtful and bathed in prayer.  The important part is taking the time to honor and challenge the young lady to live a life of a daughter of the King.

There are a couple of other books that I wish I could have put on the list.  But since they focus on the specifics of writing I didn't include them here, in this post.  Another time perhaps.

I hope you have enjoyed this series of posts.  You can find my top five recommendations for Christian fiction by clicking here.

Counting it all joy,
