    Default Good Christian fiction books that are biblically sound and present a gospel message?

    Anyone know any?
    Matthew 11:28
    Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

    Joel rosenbergs 5 book series

    The last jihad
    The last days
    The Ezekiel option
    The copper scroll
    Dead Heat

    They are my favorites! They are hard to read at firs if you don't have a high Lexile. The first two se ou up for the last three, the last is the best, trust me. But they are all great!

    I 2nd the choice!!! These books are awesome and read them in this order (these are the Last Jihad Series), they will make the most sense. And there are some interesting things that go with these books, from real life. Although Joel says he is no prophet, and he isn't, his use of Bible prophecy and today's headlines make these books so interesting.

    Joel has started a 2nd series of end times books, the 1st one was The Twelfth Iman, next is The Tehran Initiative and this year will see the 3rd book, Damascus Countdown, come out.

    These books are written with Bible prophecy in mind, along with today's headlines. The Last Jihad Series and The Twelfth Iman series.

    I loved the left Behind books also.
    Psalm 30:11-12 (New King James Version)

    11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
    You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
    12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
    O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

    Francine Rivers. Great books. Her "Mark of the lion" series is fantastic. Much research by her and her husband of the early church as Rome was destroying Jerusalem. There are three books in the series and I and my son who has a degree in history have read them at least twice. I am actually starting them again. You probably get them from the library or half price book stores. Of course they are on Amazon.

    I've found that anything by Randy Alcorn is excellent, and generally has the Gospel presented. I also enjoy Francine Rivers; the Mark of the Lion Series were probably some of the best she's written, in my opinion. They gave me a fresh perspective on how the Gospel altered individuals' lives in the first century.

    I just finished Matthew's Story by LaHaye and Jenkins. I really enjoyed it. I've now started Luke's story as I think that's the next book in the Bible I am going to study.

    The A D Chronicles by Bodie and Brock Thoene
    Excellent series and lots of nuggets in those stories that
    enlighten from a Jewish culture perspective. I have only
    read the first four, ( books are so expensive these days)
    but I loved all of them.

    The Twelfth Iman was awesome. There is also a 2nd book in the series, The Tehran Initiative. The newest book comes out later this year, it is called The Damascus Countdown.

    I only have Mark's Story left to read. I loved John's, Luke's and Matthew's Storys. They were so good and I cried, especially in Matthew's Story.

    I had never heard of them. I checked them out and they do seem to have some good prices.
    Thanks.

    All of the authors mentioned are great. I especially love Joel Rosenberg and Randy Alcorn, both his fiction and non-fiction books are wonderful. I second Safely Home as a great read!
    This world is not my home. I'm just passing through. If heaven's not my home, O Lord, what would I do? The angels beckon me from heaven's open door, and I can't feel at home in this world anymore."
    Complete justice for us will come only "when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels" (v. 7).
