Depending on where a christian is in their ability to asssimilate; I would recomend, "What Every Christian Needs to Know" by Owen. For those able to read and study more closley, I would say "The Works of Edwards". Other than that, Biographies of those close to God and used by him: i.e. Spurgeon, Whitefield, Lloyd-Jones Ect..

There are now a few very good children's adaptations of Pilgrim's Progress. Abeka has one in their third grade curriculum that is excellent. My son has read it twice and really enjoyed it. My husband borrowed it and enjoyed it too.

Be warned about Halleys Bible Handbook.

Read book called Billy Graham and his friends by Cathy Burns

“. . . around 1961, Billy Graham bought the rights to Halley’s Pocket Bible Handbook. The original Halley’s up until the 22nd Edition (1959), warned about the Jesuits. There are chapters about the Roman Papacy, and the Jesuits. According to Mrs Halley, Mr Halley spent years working on those chapters and never would have permitted the book to be changed. However when he died, Billy Graham bought the rights, and REMOVED all the research and warning about the Jesuits in the editions Billy Graham printed.”

Might want to check your edition.

One of my favourite classics is "All of Grace" by Spurgeon. Like others I enjoy C. S. Lewis particularly "The Last Battle" and "Fernseeds and Elephants."

You can get free copies of Calvin on Prayer, and other titles taken from the "Institutes" from

The good part is that these have footnotes to help one understand some of the old wording.

They also offer a free copy of Pilgrims' Progress!! And it has wonderful footnotes from MASON and others! It is the best copy I have ever read!

Other than the Bible, I use alongside The Authorized King James Bible an 1899(or in that era) Webster's Dictionary. I copy down the definition so it gets recorded within my mind. It makes the Word of God come alive to have the correct meaning of a word instead of my trying or even thinking I know the meaning. Also, important to me is that I pray Psalm 119:24 prior to my daily reading of God's Words.

I own all 4. Calvin's Institutes is difficult because of the length.

For "other", my favorites are Arthur W. Pink's "The Sovereignty of God", and "The Attributes of God" (aka "Gleanings in the Godhead").

On the topic of other good books to read I recommend: Soul winner by Spurgeon, Worship by Alfred Gibbs, Feast of Tabernacles by George Warnock, Beholding the more Excellent Glory by George Hawtin, The Pattern by Cecil DuCuille, and sermons by Billy Sunday.
See also, John Huss, William Farrel and other stuff on Google Books online for some real Christian activities.

"Dangerous Journey is an adaptation of John Bunyan's 17th-century classic The Pilgrim's Progress in an illustrated format designed for the religious education of youthful audiences. Told as a dream, it relates the story of Christian, who abandons home and family to flee from sin and destruction and travel the straight and narrow to the Celestial City. Along the way he encounters allegorical figures such as Faithful, Evangelist, and Hopeful, as well as Ignorance, the giant Despair, and the monster Apollyon, as he confronts a series of hardships and tests before arriving at his destination. Divided into nine segments (with recaps and previews, allowing for group discussion), Dangerous Journey nicely captures Bunyan's extremely visual writing style, with Alan Parry's enchanting illustrations backed by Paul Copley's beautiful narration, bringing fresh appeal to a classic that is admittedly difficult for modern audiences. Despite the caveat on the DVD jacket that the content might not be appropriate for very young children, I would advise parental discretion for those under 10, due to vivid portrayals of hellfire and grisly death that might no be palatable to all Christians..." Baptist Bulletin, Oct. 2005

Thanks Calvinist Understanding for the recommendation. DVD @

John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" has to be the absolute best for every season of one's life. John Bunyan's heart and mind was saturated with Scripture, and he used it like a painter would use his oils or watercolours, or a sculptor, his hammer and chisel, or a carpenter, his hammer and saw, or a Roman soldier, his sword and shield.

Another favorite of mine is Spurgeon's "Morning and Evening." For years, I have used this devotional to set the tone for the beginning and ending of my day. My copy is falling apart.

Of course, "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" is both humbling and inspiring, and should be in everyone's library.

Christians are blessed by the testimonies of others, and every day I am thankful for men and women who have left a legacy to encourage us. Some of my best friends are with the LORD, and though I never knew them in the flesh, I know them through their writings, and look forward to celebrating with them, one day.

Ahhhhh....."So many books, so little time." sigh
