10 Best Books Of The Bible To Read As A Teenager Update 05/2022

Do you have a list of books for teenagers, like “Ten books every Christian teen should read”? How did I not make a list like this? I have two teenagers of my own, and I’ve never done this before. I decided to fix this mistake right away. A list of ten great books that every Christian teen should read, or at least think about reading.

Please note that these are not the ten best books your kids will ever read. There are a lot of books here, but not all of them will become Christian classics over the years. Then, together, they will lay a strong foundation for the Christian life that is both deep and wide. Each of them is a good fit for twenty-first-century teenagers. I don’t put them in any order.

The Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul

The Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul

Because The Holiness of God is so good, it’s not very often that a book makes it into the “classics.” Sproul’s book will teach teenagers about holiness, how important it is to be holy, and how unholy they are. But it will also lead them to the person who wants to make them as holy as he is. A lot of people have been shaped by this book, and it could be shaped by them as well.

Counter Culture by David Platt.

This is a book about things that Christians need to be ready to talk about, things that are important right now in the twenty-first century. The subtitle tells us more: Call: “An Urgent Call to Change the Culture in a World of Poverty, Same-Sex Marriage, Racism, Sex Slavery and Immigration.” A book about the gospel can help your teens understand why Christians fight against all of these problems in our culture with conviction, compassion, and courage because of what they believe in.

The Discipline of Grace by Jerry Bridges.

Jerry Bridges did a lot of good work for a long time, and this book was one of the most important. The gospel is explained in great detail in this book. It also shows how the gospel applies to each Christian and how it affects their lives every single day of their lives. There are a lot of important lessons for teenagers who read this book. They will learn that it’s important to preach the gospel to themselves every day, and that the same gospel that saved them will keep them going to the end.

Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung

Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung

If you want to know and do God’s will, there are a lot of books that can help you. This one is the best for young people. In a clear, biblical, and fun way, DeYoung shows how many people think about God’s will in a way that isn’t right at all. When DeYoung talks about understanding God’s will, he does so with pastoral wisdom and tasteful wit. He comes up with a simple but biblical alternative: live like Jesus. He shows us how frustrating our waiting games can be, and he shows us how easy it is to find God’s will in Scripture and then do it.

Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper

John Piper started this book with a speech he gave to a group of young people at a Passion event. Piper says that many people, even if they say they are Christians, don’t have a strong desire for God. They spend their lives “on trivial diversions, live for comfort and pleasure, and maybe try to avoid sin.” They will hear Piper say that they should not waste their lives or their youth. Instead, they should “live and die boasting in the cross of Christ, making God’s glory their sole passion,” which is what Piper is urging them to do.

Core Christianity by Michael Horton.

If you’re a person who doesn’t like words like “theology” or “dogma,” you might find them hard to understand or even irrelevant. That shouldn’t happen. Not at all. This book will help your kids learn about the basics of the Christian faith and hopefully make them want to learn more about it as well. People who are just starting to learn about the important things that make us stand or fall should read this book.

The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

It is for good reason that Bunyan’s story has been called a Christian classic, and even the Christian classic, for a long time now. They read the book again and again, and it does reward them for their efforts because they do that all the time. It can be read in the original seventeenth century English or in modernized forms. It doesn’t matter which way your kids watch, but they will see how long it takes Christian to get to the Celestial City. They will learn what God expects of them and what he provides for them on the same journey.

Habits of Grace by David Mathis.

At some point, every Christian is told that they need to do spiritual things like read the Bible and pray. People who follow Jesus should have habits of grace. David Mathis talks a lot about how Christians can form and keep these habits. People who are Christians don’t know how to do spiritual practices well, and no one in the world does. The more we grow in grace, the less we know about them. In Habits of Grace, there is a great helper for these skills. It gives new Christians some basic advice, but it also gives new hope to people who have been following God for a long time. It will set them up for a long life of following God.

Messy Grace by Caleb Kaltenbach

The church and the rest of the world don’t get along as well as they used to because of the issue of homosexuality. In Messy Grace, Caleb Kaltenbach brings a well-informed, interesting, and biblical point of view to this issue. The mother is a lesbian and the father is gay. He was raised by both of them. Grace and truth are mixed together in his story and in his study of the Bible. As he tells his story and talks about what the Bible says, he manages to do both. Teens who read this will be better able to understand what the Bible says about homosexuality and why it’s important.

Tactics by Greg Koukl

Especially when they go to college and work, Christian teens need to be ready to defend their Christian faith, because they might be asked about it. Greg Koukl’s Tactics is a good book for teenagers who want to talk about their Christian beliefs in even the most hostile places. With thoughtful, artful diplomacy, Koukl shows how to get in the driver’s seat and keep any conversation going. You’ll learn how to move through the minefields with ease and grace, stop opponents in their tracks, turn the tables, and most importantly, get people thinking about Jesus. As time goes on, your talks will look more like diplomacy than D-Day.
