The 5 Best Born Again Christian Books to Consider


Lord’s Library editors assembled this list of the best Born Again Christian books to consider reading.

The Bible’s Gospel of John 3:3-7 records a conversation between Jesus and a man named Nicodemus about the importance of being “born again.” In this passage, Jesus emphasizes the importance of being “born again” in order to see or enter the kingdom of God. He explains that this spiritual rebirth involves being “born of water and of the Spirit,” and that it is not a physical rebirth but a transformation of the inner self.

  • John 3:3-7: “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

The concept of being “born again” is an important aspect of Christian theology, with many believers rightly seeing it as a crucial step in their spiritual journey. It is associated with repentance, forgiveness, and the experience of a personal relationship with God.

The King James Bible also includes other passages that emphasize the importance of being “born again,” such as 1 Peter 1:23, which states that believers have been “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”
