Start reading Christian books with the Bible Cafe™ community! Online book club to discuss Christian fiction (and nonfiction) books. In September we are reading a fantastic book by Karen Kingsbury. Because this book was enjoyable and easy to read, we want to share the experience with our community. Even nonfiction readers are curious about the Book of the Month for September: A Distant Shore by Karen Kingsbury. 

The Bible Cafe™ Book Club is an entertainment site for Christian books. Our international book discussions happen online. Many are joining from their homes, office or even carpool… as we discuss Christian fiction and nonfiction each month.


Once a month gather with us to discuss Christian books

If you want to join a book club but don’t have time to drive to a meeting- we bring the group experience right where you are- a home book club, office book club, or carpool too! Maybe you’re in a college dorm or on a missions trip and want to discuss Christian books in a safe place? Come join us today!

Now, before you say I don’t usually read romance books… I’m going to reply NEITHER DO I.

However, when I found this Karen Kingsbury romance book AND redemption story on the bestseller list for August, I looked deeper. Wow and I’m sure glad I looked past the word “romance.” Because this is a super entertaining and interesting book! I’m not going to spoil the goodness…except I can share something I felt while I was reading this Christian book.

Dialogue with God.

This fabulous book is a great example of overcoming childhood trauma. And so when I was reading this (and you will discover too) the experience can lead people away from God. If you have studied the Bible, this might remind you of a wilderness season! At least it did for me. A story of heartache- when bad things happen to good people- can interfere in our relationship with God. THAT’S POWERFUL FICTION.

Yeah, it might be in the “romance” category and I can tell you as a Bible-Nerd-Never-Reads-Fiction-Girl…you don’t want to miss this experience.


Inspirational fiction superstar” (Publishers Weekly) and #1 New York Times bestselling author of life-changing fiction returns with this high-stakes love story of danger, passion, and faith.

She was a child caught in a riptide in the Caribbean Sea. He was a teenager from the East Coast on vacation with his family. He dove in to save her, and that single terrifying moment changed both their lives forever.

Ten years later Jack Ryder is a daring secret agent with the FBI and Eliza Lawrence still lives on that pristine island. She’s an untainted princess in a kingdom of darkness and evil, on the brink of a forced marriage with a dangerous neighboring drug lord, a marriage arranged by her father.

This time when Jack and Eliza meet, there’s a connection neither of them can explain. Both their lives are on the line, and once again, the stakes are deadly high. Can they join forces in a complicated and dangerous mission, pretending to have a breathtaking love…without really falling?

Sometimes miracles happen not once, but twice…along a distant shore.
