I have chosen titles that are more Historical Ficiton than religious, although can be classified as "Christian Fiction." These books would all appeal to a wide range of readers. In fact, you do not even need to be a person of any faith to enjoy these books. There is mostly fiction here, but some nonfiction as well.
I have also grouped these titles by their appeal, so while I have not individually annotated each title, I have chosen good sure bet options in each of the areas.
RA for All will pause to celebrate these three holidays. So, no post tomorrow. Back Monday with a new Monday Discussion. Enjoy your weekend; however you are celebrating...or not.
