By God’s grace, the contemporary American church is blessed with wonderful books geared to Christian women by gifted, faithful, female authors.

We are delighted by the request of some of our ladies for a recommended reading list of books geared to Christian woman. Although some of these books are geared to women, they are also a blessing to men. Sadly, there are many “Christian” books for women that we would discourage you from reading unless you have a discerning eye (1 John 4:1). We are learning to trust particular authors and be wary of others. Below is a list of recommended texts.
