We asked you to answer the question what book(s) or character(s), fiction or non-fiction, have been important to your faith-walk. And here are some of your responses.
Life of the Beloved by Henri Nouwen
I’ve underlined just about the whole book but here are two quotes I’ll share: “What fascinates me so much is that every time we decide to be grateful it will be easier to see new things to be grateful for. Gratitude begets gratitude, just as love begets love.” “God’s love is a love that includes all people–each one in his or her uniqueness. – Barbara R.
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Great depiction of what Christianity is all about and how everyone’s faith walk is different. Written well by one of the most well know Christian authors of our time. -Brie C.
This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti
While fiction, it totally illustrates the spiritual warfare that is going on around us, everyday. When you can actually visualize demons and angels working and affecting us and others, you realize just how real and dangerous this battle is…and how awesome the power of prayer is. -Susan L.
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
“They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions… but before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.” -Barbara R.
Jesus Loves Me by Debby Anderson
It has the song with pictures. -Ryan C., age 3
