3.The Book of God: The Bible as a Novel
The Bible is often described as the greatest of stories. This book is based on the same concept. It is an epic novel that persuades you to feel and experience the meaning behind it. We think that it offers you an innovative retelling, giving you something to hold on to in daily life.
According to us this classic has been an important tool to help Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory and the joy of knowing God. In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals. This edition is updated with Americanized language and spelling.

8.God Made All of Me: A Book to Help Children Protect Their Bodies
In our opinion God Made All of Me is a simply-told, beautifully-illustrated story to help families talk about the sensitive issues with two- to eight-year-old children. Because the private parts of our bodies are private, home is the ideal environment where a child should learn about his or her body and how it should be treated by others.
9.Lies We Believe About God
During the course of time many people have presumed that certain beliefs about God are true. But are they really? In this book, we think that the author sets out in detail the assumptions some of us make. By doing so, he challenges us to think anew about passages in the Bible.
10.Jesus: The God Who Knows Your Name
We highly recommend this book if you want to know more about the person Jesus was. It describes his time on earth. This book provides you with the details on his character and on his life. In addition, author Max Lucado includes details on how you are able to connect to Jesus personally.
What kind of books are on this list of things to read about God?
In the list below you will find different perspectives on the subject of ‘God’. The first book in the list – What is God – even tells the perspective of 31 different philosophers and writers. In the second book in this list, ‘About God’, Etienne Vermeersch talks about God from the Christian perspective. In the third book of this list, you will find a great number of quotes about God in one place.
In ‘Watchful over God’ you come into very personal contact with the story of a believer who seeks contact with God. Number 5 is “The Joy of God” by a brilliant, eloquent American pastor: John Piper.
Living with God at the center reminds us to put God at the center of our lives, and to build things like work, leisure, and food around it. As a counterpart to Richard Dawkins’ atheist vision, you will find ‘Proof God’ at number 7. At number 9 is Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion. Does he throw the bathwater away with the child? I am curious about your opinion after you have read this book.
Letters from a skeptic and Mind your faith are also excellent books about God. The former shows a dialogue between two people, and the latter is a beautiful guide for young adults to give God a place in their lives every day.
