Art and the Bible by Francis Schaeffer | This foundational manifesto of the purpose of Christian art is a quick read, but enlightening and thought-provoking.

This Changes Everything by Jaquelle Crowe | Very few books for Christian teens are both theologically deep and written in an accessible, conversational style. This Changes Everything is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.

The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson | It’s written for a middle-grade audience, but after Lewis and Tolkien this is some of the best fantasy I’ve ever read.



The Rebelution is a beautiful and earth-shaking movement of teenagers who are passionate about following God and defying society’s low expectations. I’m honored to be a writer and editor there.


Speaking of the Reb, Jaquelle Crowe (the editor-in-chief) is a phenomenal writer, who recently published her first book, This Changes Everything: How the Gospel Transforms the Teen Years.

The Rabbit Room is “an experiment in creative community,” started by Andrew Peterson. It’s a conglomeration of weird and wonderful artists, writers, and singers of songs, and their view on our relationship to art as Christians has been very influential for me.
