    Hello,
    I would like to ask for advice/recommendation if someone has any good books to read, they don't have to be christian, what is important to me is that there is clean language, no cussing, no meantioning God's name in vain way, thanks :)
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I mostly enjoy reading Eastern Orthodox books.

    If your interest is in fiction, I prefer Dostoevsky's books.

    It’s HARD to find clean young adult and adult books! I think the cleanest I’ve ever read is the Host, and i think it has a few words in it and there are times when it says stuff about unmarried men and women sleeping together (but not having sex). I usually stick to reading kid’s books like Warriors

    A few good books I've read recently:

    Momo - It's a fantasy novel from the 70s. I've read it a bunch of times already.

    Man's Search for Meaning - It's a Viktor Frankl book about his experiences living in a Nazi concentration camp. It's a beautiful and inspiring book even though it's mostly about such a sad subject.

    Pedro Paramo - It's a Mexican fantasy novel from the 50s (another one I've read a bunch of times.)

    I honestly don't remember if there's any cursing or mentioning of God's name in vein in those books. If there's any, it'd probably be in the third book.

    Most books before a certain date have clean language. Not precisely sure what the cut off would be but it's probably about the same as with movies and shows. Looking for classics or books from earlier time periods should provide a lot of options.

    Historical classics are clean. For modern reads, look at Amish fiction.
