Committed Reader Books (My Choices) - 2017 Christian Reading Challenge

I have now got to the point of choosing my committed level books for the reading challenge that we are attempting this year. The books I have read so far are here and here. I've written here about some books that I have found particularly helpful.

I still have half a book to finish from the previous level, but I like to have a few books on the go at a time, so it seemed like getting started on the next stage would be a good plan.

The books:

1) A book from a theological viewpoint you disagree with: God and the Gay Christian by Matthew Vines
2) A book about Christian living: A Better Story by Glynn Harrison
3) A book about apologetics: The Reason for God by Timothy Keller
4) A book of your choice: Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World by Kristen Welch
5) A humorous book: Notes From a Small Island by Bill Bryson
6) A book based on a true story: Luther in Love by Douglas Bond
7) A book about prayer: The Power of Prayer and the Prayer of Power by R. A. Torrey
8) A book of poetry: Falling Awake by Alice Oswald
9) A book with a one-word title: Millennium by Tom Holland
10) A book by Sinclair Ferguson: The Whole Christ by Sinclair Ferguson
11) A novel by an author you have never read before: How to Be Both by Ali Smith
12) A book about Christian living: Emotions: Living Life in Colour by Graham Beynon
13) A memoir or autobiography: The Long and Winding Road by Alan Johnson
14) A play by William Shakespeare: Henry V by William Shakespeare
15) A book of your choice: Jane and Prudence by Barbara Pym
16) A book written by an author with initials in their name: Holiness by J. C. Ryle
17) A book by a female author: The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey
18) A book about theology: How Long, O Lord? By D. A. Carson
19) A book published by Crossway: Expositional Preaching by David Helm
20) A self-improvement book: You Can Change by Tim Chester
21) A graphic novel: Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
22) A book you own but have never read: The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje
23) A book targeted at the other gender: Disciplines of a Godly Man by R. Kent Hughes
