Below are examples of my favorite Christian Nonfiction works:
Are Not Professionals,
by John Piper
Best-selling author John Piper pleads through a series of thoughtful essays with fellow pastors to abandon the professionalization of the pastorate and pursue the prophetic call of the Bible for radical ministry. – Amazon
Revise Us Again, by Frank Viola
AudioFile Magazine Review:
Frank Viola presents another inspirational book on Christian living, this one a collection of essays. Focusing on the personal spiritual walk of believers, Viola suggests that each person has a script to follow in the grand play of life. Narrator Adam Verner guides listeners in a well-composed voice. His moderate pace and calm delivery encourage listeners to take notes. Every person, and every Christian in particular, is charged with reviewing his or her life script regularly and with allowing the words of this book to infiltrate everyday thinking.

Jesus + Nothing
= Everything, by Tullian Tchividjian
Billy Graham’s grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, was asked to merge his successful church in Florida with Dr. James Kennedy’s historic Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. This difficult event taught the young pastor the reality of Jesus, which he emphasizes in this collection of sermons preached from the Book of Colossians. Adam Verner’s compelling narration captures the anguish of a church’s upheaval and the hurtful rumors and unpleasant events that led to the petitioning for Tchividjian’s removal. Verner authentically portrays Tchividjian’s conviction that the event was designed by God for the purpose of the young pastor recognizing and removing idols from his own life. Verner perfectly renders the lesson that taught Tchividjian that when you have “Jesus + Nothing, that is all you really need. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine
Just Do Something, by Kevin DeYoung
Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God’s will don’t work. It’s time to try something new: Give up.
Pastor and bestselling author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God’s people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven’t found God’s perfect will for their lives. Or-even worse-they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting… waiting… waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.
But God doesn’t need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road.
He’s already revealed His plan for our lives: to love Him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like. – Amazon
