I recently finished Epic by John Eldridge. It's definitely classic-Eldridge. If you've read anything else by him, you know how he writes. A bit too touchy-feely for me, though he's certainly a creative writer and crafts a story very well. Though it only takes about an hour to read, he said in 120 pages what he could have said in about 10. It would have made for a great series of blog posts, but nonetheless a quick and good read. For gathering a basic understanding of the Christian journey and the Christian worldview, this is a good resource. For people who relate emotionally with epic films like "Lord of the Rings" and "Braveheart", the analogous connections Eldridge makes to the Christian journey will likely strike a chord.
