Christian Fiction Classics

15 Mar

I came across a reading challenge the other day that got me thinking. Titled The Classics Club, it challenged participants to pick 50 classic titles to read and review over the next 5 years.  I thought how fun!  Wonder if I could pick 50 Christian fiction classics for my list.  Is there such a list out there?  Not sure. What do you think?  What would you put on the list.  All suggestions are welcome.  Here is a start:

Books on a must read list of classic Christian fiction:

1)  Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers 

2)  The Robe by Lloyd C. Douglas

3)  Quo Vadis by Henry Sienkiewicz

4)  The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

5)  The Lord of The Rings trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkein

6)  Ben Hur by Lew Wallace

    I’d also place on the list The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis, [biographies of many Christian missionaries and The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom in the category of Christian literature rather than Christian fiction], Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and The Crucible by Arthur Miller. I’m sure that many more will come to mind as I ponder your question.

      I thought about Screwtape and The Great Divorce. I am currently reading The Hiding Place with the women I volunteer with once a week. Most of them have been in jail and are at the rehab center as a condition of their parole. We have had some great discussions about prison life and the difference for those who are “innocent”. Betsie’s witness has been very inspirational for them. Thanks for stopping by with your great recommendations!
