10. Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

Who better to confront the twentieth century’s greatest evil than a humble man of faith?

While Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate Europe’s Jews, a small group of dissidents and saboteurs worked to bring the Third Reich down from within. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a pastor and author, was one of them.

Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life—the theologian and the spy—and weaves them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil in this New York Times bestselling biography.

Metaxas presents the most complete account of Bonhoeffer’s life in Bonhoeffer, including his:

  • heartbreaking decision to leave America’s safe haven and return to Hitler’s Germany
  • participation in the infamous Valkyrie plot and “Operation 7,” an attempt to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland
  • His lifelong commitment to sharing the tenets of his faith

Her Mother’s Hope

This New York Times best-selling story, the first in an epic two-book saga by beloved author Francine Rivers, explores the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters across several generations.

Marta Schneider, a fiery woman, leaves Switzerland for a better life near the turn of the twentieth century, determined to fulfill her mother’s wish. Her formative journey takes her through Europe and ultimately to Canada, where she meets the charming Niclas Waltert.

Nothing, however, has prepared her for the sacrifices she must make for marriage and motherhood as she travels to the Canadian wilderness and then to California’s dusty Central Valley to raise her family. Marta’s hope is to provide a better life for her children, but she has learned that only the strong survive.

Her tough love is frequently misunderstood, particularly by her oldest daughter, Hildemara Rose, who longs for her mother’s approval. During World War II, Hildie falls in love and starts her own family. However, unexpected and tragic events force mother and daughter to confront their own failings as well as the ever-widening chasm that threatens to divide them forever.

4. Wild at Heart by John Eldredge

Wild at Heart Expanded Edition: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul

Men were not created by God to be nice boys. He made us to live lives full of passion, freedom, and adventure. To be dangerous men living in a huge story.

Men were created by God to be powerful. Simply consider the dreams and desires written in the hearts of all boys: to be a hero, a warrior, to love a beauty, and to live an adventurous life.

Most men, however, lose heart somewhere between boyhood and the struggles of yesterday. Deadlines, pressures, and disappointments bury all of our passions, dreams, and desires. Christianity appears to be irrelevant to their heart’s recovery. It’s no surprise that most men live lives of quiet resignation while looking for a little “life” on the side.

3. Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
