Check out our the responses we received below, and share some favorite reads of your own. (You never know, you’re recommendation might change someone else’s life.)

Person 1: Love Wins, Rob Bell

“The book Love Wins by Rob Bell. It has been a  profoundly impactful book to me on my spiritual journey. As someone who grew up in an evangelical Christian household, this book really challenged me to question what I grew up with and has allowed me to evolve how I view the world and people in it in a wonderfully positive way. The book changed what it meant for me to love myself and to love others.” – Austin K.
