Christian readers in Europe—as in the rest of the world—have often been blessed by the relationship insights provided in Gary Chapman's The 5 Love Languages® and related books. Tessa Afshar's fiction is also popular on that continent, such as her bestselling story about Rahab, Pearl in the Sand. Two other popular books in Europe are authored by beloved Moody Church pastor Erwin Lutzer: When You've Been Wronged (about forgiveness) and Hitler's Cross (a history of the Nazis' evil use of cross symbolism).
Over in England, one of our partners tells us:
- "Current trends [among readers] are books to help with anxieties and worries. This trend has of course spiked during the pandemic as people look to their faith for answers." We think Becky Harling's devotional, Psalms for the Anxious Heart, fits that description perfectly!
- "Journaling [resources] and ways to be creative are continuing to sell well and have also spiked during the pandemic as people had more time at home to spend connecting with God in this way." Check out Priscilla Shirer's A Jewel in His Crown Journal that helps female readers become women of excellence. Or stimulate your personal creativity with Ken Wytsma's Create v. Copy.
- "Prayer also continues to be a hot topic. Again, we think this is connected to [spending] time at home, [providing] more time to reflect and seek peace." We agree with the importance of prayer! Deepen your prayer life with A. W. Tozer's Prayer: Communing With God in Everything or Skye Jethani's What If Jesus Was Serious About Prayer?
