Glad to hear some of you have already read Whatever Happened to Penny Candy!

It is a more basic book, but as Peter said, it is a good place to start.

I would also recommend the study guides, if you wish to get the most out of the books. We did a study on Whatever Happened to Penny Candy and I found it to be very helpful. Maybe something to talk to your parents about...

In Christ,

I just started reading "Whatever Happened to Justice" for school. So far, I'm liking it, except for his assertion that any belief in a "Higher Authority" is good enough. I expect, however, that many of his conclusions about politics will be much closer to correct than the secular, mainstream, socialist view.

The book Democracy in America by Alexis de Toqueville is an excellent book on the origin and function of American Government from a Frenchman's perspective. He is an unbeliever, so you have to take everything with a grain of salt, but he has some great insights into human nature. I'm reading it for government class right now and loving it.

The Law by Fredric Bastiat is very good. I would highly recomend it, and it's pretty short.

That is one of the top 'crucial' recommended books for this forum. Smile

Although they are text books, I've found that these books should be applicable to anyone, regardless of whether or not you are a student.

Traditional Logic by Martin Cothran.

Economics: Work and Prosperity (In Christian Perspective) by Russell Kirk.

Both are good books for people who are new to logic or economics, and Traditional Logical especially will contain things many other books may ignore.
