You may recall my confession that I had started twice but never finished reading John Owen’s Overcoming Sin and Temptation. Thanks to Tim’s Reading Classics Together, I was able to discipline myself to read one chapter per week and finish it.
In light of the success I’ve had reading two classics I may have not read otherwise, I am wondering if there are other Christian women who would like to try the same kind of reading group. I am calling it Lux Venit Reading Group, and proposing that we read Christian fiction and non-fiction books written for women.
Maybe you’re like me and have a list of several books you’d like to read, but for one reason or another, you just haven’t done it. A couple of books that have been suggested to me that I haven’t read yet are Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, everything by Karen Kingsbury, The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace, and Girl Talk by Carolyn Mahaney. I’d also like to read missionary biographies like the one about Amy Carmichael by Elisabeth Elliot. I would also like to re-read Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God by Noel Piper. There are so many!
Are you interested? Feel free to share which books you’d like to read.
(I was originally calling the group LitLovers, but we had to change it because another reading group was already using the name.)
