Intersection of Life and Faith

10 Books Christians Need to Know About

  • Kristi Woods Crosswalk.com Contributing Writer

1. The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan

This book from the 1600’s ranked #2 on my pastor’s reading list, standing in line only behind the Bible. As a curious young adult, I opened its pages. Like a sponge, I soaked in each paragraph little by little, each morsel of goodness going down with understanding. This piece immediately soared to number two on my list as well. 

This beautifully written allegory follows a man’s life journey as he searches for salvation. He faces Giant Despair, Ignorance, and slew of other characters along the way. Hopeful and Faithful join him for parts of the journey as well, adding strength and guidance. It’s applicable to every Christian’s life.
