Winter is here. And unless you’re a skier or lucky enough to have a frozen pond nearby, you’re probably looking for a nice, warm, indoor activity.

Put down the remote control and go get a book. Better yet, curl up with a Christian classic. Here are a few suggestions. “Knowing God” by J. I. Packer. Knowing about God is not the same as knowing Him, and I’m guessing that millions of Christians know Him better thanks to this book.

Or try the "Confessions of Augustine." It’s a revealing, moving, and personal encounter with one of the greatest minds of the ancient Church.

And then of course, "Mere Christianity" by C. S. Lewis. If you’ve read it before, read it again. It’s one of the most accessible Christian worldview books ever written. You’ll be thinking about Jesus, the universe, even your own pride in new and challenging ways.

And a final idea: Pick one of the gospels and spend some quality time with Jesus.

We’ve got these and many other great books for you at our online bookstore at
