Here's the skinny on this list:

  • It is a "living" list (meaning books will be added and subtracted often).
  • The books are broken down into 15 categories (presented in alphabetical order).
  • The books are in alphabetical order by title within each category.
  • Many of these books do not come from a Christian worldview. 
  • Some of these books are not appropriate for all ages. 
  • Links to purchase the books online are included (we encourage purchasing from local bookstores as well).
