My Top 10 Christian Books

Based upon the long running BBC Radio 4 programme ‘Desert Island Discs’, we are hoping to compile a list of books that contributors feel should be essential for any young believer’s library.

Many of the books recommended by the contributors to this list are available either new or second-hand. We have included details of some of these suppliers on the Links page. This should not be taken as an endorsement of everything that appears on those sites.

  • Thessalonians
  • by D. E. Hiebert
  • It’s difficult to pick any one book by this author because all of them are worth purchasing. I’ve picked this one only as an example and to enable me to recommend this author as one who will provide help generally.
Stephen Grant Book Recommendations
  • James
  • by John MacArthur
  • Another author that usually provides help through any of the commentaries that he has written. I’ve picked this one as a means of drawing attention to the writer rather than the specific book. Some might have to be read with greater care than others but generally quite sound.
