Let's see.... it must be so much harder to find Christian Fiction for men than it is for women, because there are soo many Christian Romances out there, but not much else. I've read a few by Randy Alcorn, those are really great, I highly recommend anything by him. Then there is Dave Hunt's "Mind Invaders" which is definetly one of my favorites. The "Circle of Seven" by Clay Jacobsen is really great, I have not read any other books by him but that one is a must read. The "Chronicles of the Host" trilogy by D. Brian Shafer I haven't read yet, but it looks good. Also there is "Gideon's Dawn" by Michael D Warden which is more of a christian fantasy (oximoronic I know but...). "Expiration Date" by Eric Wilson is great.  "Arena" by Karen Hancock is great Christian sci-fi if you don't mind a little bit of romance, and also "Blind Sight" by James H Pence looks good, although I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Oh and also look into Cary Bybee's trilogy which is about the end times, like Left Behind. I haven't read the trilogy yet, but it looks good. :-] I hope this helps!

If you like historical  novels, I've read many of the Louis de Wohl novels on the lives  of great people, e.g. Benedict, Thomas Aquinas, Catherine of Siena, Ignatius of Loyola. My husband is currently reading the Spear, that focuses on the soldier that thrust a spear into the heart of Christ, after he died. De Wohl has a gift for creating fascinating stories from the lives of great people that actually lived.

Last week, I posted 3 of them, and they went out immediately, having been on some wish lists. But last I checked,  there were a few in the database.

I loved the Left Behind Series.  My mom loaned me the first book in the series and It was so good that I just kept reading the next book after next !  They are gripping and easy to follow.  Incase the movie throws you off before you read the series, my advice, don't watch the movies, they have nothing on the books themselves.  These are GREAT BOOKS!!!!
