We have a confession to make. We’re book geeks. We started this website because the thought of a good book makes us nearly giddy. You see we understand how the right book can take the edge off of a rough day or help us through something we’re dealing with in our lives. Reading is the perfect pastime. Most of us have books tucked in our bags, our cars and our e-readers are overflowing with them.
But let’s be honest here. Just because a book has been published, that doesn’t automatically mean it’s worth our precious reading time. There’s little that’s more annoying than spending time on a bad book. That’s why we’ve created Radiant Lit. We’re here to help you decide what should go on your reading list.
Radiant Lit isn’t just about fun and entertainment though. You see, we’re Christians. We live our faith daily and it’s important to us to edify God in all we do here. So the kinds of books you’re going to find here will be books that we think will encourage Christian women in their faith – and entertain them with Godly and Biblical values. (Note: This is a recent shift at Radiant Lit, so please, read each review carefully for content and rating.)
The only place you’ll consistently find reviews for non-Christian books will be as part of our Radiant Young Adults program. We’ve got a good reason for that and we would encourage you to visit the page and see what we’re up to and why we’re doing it.
That said, we hope and pray that you find some excellent reading here.
