The 25 Best Christian Books Ever Published - Classics

Recently I published the article, The Best 50 Christian Books Ever Written. And although the list included some books older than the 20th century, most of the mentions on the list were recent in their publication. Therefore, I want to compliment that list with this one below that includes older contributions that have lasted through the test of time.

Great list Bill. Thanks for sharing. I have some reading to do!

How about Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis?

I believe that made my previous list...tried to eliminate redundancy

Am Taisia from USA. After being in relationship for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the Dr CAFAi, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by reffering him or her to the only real and powerful Dr CAFAi who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email cafaispiritualtemple@yahoo.com) you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
