Isn’t fall a wonderful time to start a new Bible Study, pick up a new devotional book or just to snuggle up with a book? Below are some of my favorite books, most of them kindle format, but many of them you can probably get in paperback or hard back. So take a look a find some books to fall for.
Books to Fall For this Fall Season:
1. Bible Study Books:
Make sure your time with the Lord is first and foremost. We all need to fall in love with God's Word more and more.
- The "BE SERIES by Warren Wiersbe is an excellent series for study. Sometimes you can score one of these for free. If you follow my Facebook page, I ususally will share free books that come across my path.
- Gleanings in Proverbs is another great book. It has been a whole year's Bible study for me. Proverbs is the book that basically lies out the way for Christians to live on a daily basis.
- A Place of Quiet Rest: by Nancy Leigh DeMoss - Finding Intimacy with God Through a Daily Devotional Life and a couple more by her: Adorned and Lies Women Believe
2. Books on Prayer:

- How I Know God Answers Prayer The Personal Testimony of One Life-Time Rosalind Goforth
- The Prayer that Makes a Difference Oma Van Gelderen walked by faith and not by sight as she grew to understand the witness of the Holy Spirit as a fact of knowledge and not a feeling. She knew neither fame nor fortune, yet God used her prayer life to make a profound difference.
- Prayer 101 by Warren Wiersbe Dr. Warren Wiersbe addresses many questions about prayer and gives practical tools for incorporating prayer into our lives
- The Kneeling Christian by Albert Richardson "Why are many Christians often defeated? Because they pray so little. Why do most Christians see so few brought out of darkness to light by their ministry? Because they pray so little. Why are our churches simply not on fire for God? Because there is so little real prayer."
- Praying Hyde He came to be called "Praying Hyde" for his passionate prayers to reach lost souls.

- Stolen Series - "In Kimberly Rae's novel Stolen Woman, she juxtaposes the natural beauty of Kolkata, India, with the insidious evil slithering under darkness on street corners where women are sold to the highest bidder. Rae's message of hope and the education the novel provides should open our eyes to an issue which can no longer be ignored and needs everyone's efforts to eradicate."
