“Every man dies. Not every man really lives.” — William Wallace
Faithlife’s list of 2019’s best Christian books is full of titles to help Christians really live (along with some fiction for fun). You’ll find books on parenting, building Christian community, the names of Jesus, and more.
What better way to end a year and begin a new decade than with some great reads? Here’s what people are saying about just three of 2019’s best Christian books:
Free to Focus by Michael Hyatt
I’ve known Michael for a long time and this book is one of his best. He hasn’t just provided us with a huge chest full of tools, he reminds us why we need them and encourages us to reach for the right one for the job.
— Bob Goff, New York Times bestselling author of Love Does and Everybody Always
Overwork is a pervasive form of personal sabotage. Michael Hyatt presents a well-researched but refreshing alternative that allows us to breathe, play, and connect while still accomplishing the very best we have to offer at work. This book will restore the inner peace that makes life—and work—worthwhile.
— Dan Miller, New York Times bestselling author of 48 Days to the Work You Love
The Next Right Thing by Emily Freeman
— Jen Pollock Michel, author of Surprised by Paradox
The Next Right Thing is a book you can go back to again and again, and each time it will hit you in a new and fresh way. If you struggle to make decisions, if you’re in the midst of a big life change, if you’d just love some quiet guidance to be more intentional with your days, and/or if you love Emily’s writing and podcast, this book is for you!

How Happiness Happens by Max Lucado
In a world where happiness has become fickle and fleeting, Max takes us back to Jesus’ path to happiness that is rooted in true joy and loving others. How Happiness Happens will challenge you to focus less on yourself and your circumstances, and more on our good God—the true source of our joy.
— Christine Caine, bestselling author, founder of A21 and Propel Women
