Christmas 2020 Gift Ideas For Christian Book Lovers

Hey, how's it going? I can't believe 2020 is about to end and here we are still stuck in our homes. But it's not like we can't go out if we want to.

Looking back, how have you been spending the year? I hope the good times make up for the unexpected detours.

Anyway, if you're a book lover or looking for gift ideas for a book lover this coming Christmas, the list below might help. Check it out below.

1. Sit, Walk, Stand: The Process of Christian Maturity by Watchman Nee

I've been crushing hard on this book for a while. We used to have a hard copy of this until my husband lends it to someone and no more. Haha. I don't think we'll ever see it again. 

This book goes in-depth on the Book of Ephesians. Here's a quick summary. Your sitting (position in Christ) determines your walk in life and your stand against the enemy's lies (resisting the enemy.)

2. Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World by Bob Goff

I heard the author is a great storyteller. If you love to read real-life accounts of people, then this book might be of interest.

Love is simple, we are the ones who complicate things. In this book, the author writes about his adventures in loving others. You and I could take notes, especially during these difficult times. 

3. Relational Intelligence: The People Skills You Need for the Life of Purpose You Want by Dharius Daniels

I've heard this preacher twice on Elevation Church's Youtube Channel. I love his latest practical teaching from the Book of Job found here. Check it out too!

This book is about the importance of assessing your relationships because who you spend most of your time with will either lead you to a destructive path or help you unlock your greatest potential.

4. Oswald Chambers, Abandoned to God: The Life Story of the Author of My Utmost for His Highest

This is a life of decidedly choosing to spend and be spent only on God. Biographies of great men and women of God are amazing because they encourage and help us align our walk back to what God has called us to do.

5. Me and My Big Mouth!: Your Answer is Right Under Your Nose by Joyce Meyer

How many times have you found yourself in trouble because of the words you let out? Aye! Aye! Of course, I need this too. According to my husband, I had issues bridling my tongue and he is right. Oh, how right!

If you find yourself in a similar situation, then this book is for you. If you're thinking of gifting a copy of this, make sure the receiver isn't offended. ;)

6. Still Waiting: Hope for When God Doesn't Give You What You Want by Ann Swindell

She's one of my instructors at Compel. In reading other people's struggles and how God helps them through the difficult season, we are reminded that we aren't alone as we go through our own valleys.

It's uncomfortable to be in a position of waiting, especially in our day and age where patience is a rare virtue. How do you hold on to hope when your circumstances appear hopeless?

In this book, the author opens up about her own vulnerabilities, struggling with an illness. But it doesn't end there. She points the reader back to the truths of Scripture, which aims to help us trust in God's promises and timing.

7. Listen, Love, Repeat: Other-Centered Living in a Self-Centered World by Karen Ehman

Here's another instructor from Compel. We live in a self-obsessed culture where is all about me, me, and me. Well, I'm no different and I definitely need this.

The author shares her personal stories and lessons from the Scriptures to show the reader we are called to love others and serve them first. Yep, I'm getting a copy!
