I am looking for suggestions of non-fiction books (such as prayer/meditation guides) that are concerned with growing a stronger personal relationship with Jesus Christ specifically.  A while ago, somebody on another forum I frequent had suggested one, but the forum has since disappeared and I forgot to add it to my list.  Any suggestions?  Thank you so much!

Hi Jennifer!  I liked Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.  It's a really neat daily devotional written from the perspective of Jesus speaking directly to you.  The author has also written a second book call Jesus Lives!  I have not read it, but the description sounds like the kind of thing you are looking for.   Maybe someone else here has read it???

Thank you for the suggestion, Christa!  That's exactly the kind of book I'm looking for.  I've put it on my wishlist.  Since there's a long list, I'll be looking for it when I go out to the book store next time.  Looks like it's not available at the library either.  :(  

If anybody has any more suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Oswald Chambers' My Utmost for His Highest is my daily companion devotional in addition to the Bible, of course.  Elisabeth Eliott is also quite good for going deeper in your walk with Christ.
