That Hideous Strength
http://www.amazon.com/That-Hideous-Strength-C-S-Lewis/dp/0684823853

The Chronicles of Narnia are better known, but these novels are just as good and written with a more grown up audience in mind. An excellent introduction to Lewis’ work. The audio book version of the series read by Geoffrey Howard is outstanding. It can be downloaded from Audible.com  http://www.audible.com/adbl/site/products/ProductDetail.jsp?productID=BK_BLAK_000509&BV_UseBVCookie=Yes

William McGrath
Fantasy
The first two books in The Sword of Fire series:
Asulon
http://www.amazon.com/ASULON-William-R-McGrath/dp/0980105803
Eretzel
http://www.amazon.com/ERETZEL-WILLIAM-RAYMOND-MCGRATH/dp/0980105811

The Book of Revelation set in a fantasy world that resembles western Europe during the period of the Crusades. Unashamedly Conservative in its political views. If J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and Tom Clancy collaborated on a story the results might look something like this. You can read six sample chapters or listen to three audio chapters on the samples page of this website.
Appropriate for ages 12+

Lt. Colonel Oliver North
Military/Political Thrillers
Mission Compromised
http://www.amazon.com/Mission-Compromised-Oliver-L-North/dp/006055584X
The Jericho Sanction
http://www.amazon.com/Jericho-Sanction-Oliver-North/dp/0060599804
The Assassins
http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Oliver-North/dp/0061137642

Think of Colonel North’s writing style as Tom Clancy with a focus on men over machines, small unit tactics over technology. The books take an Evangelical Christian view of events in the Middle East.
Appropriate for ages 12+

George Orwell
Political Satire
1984
http://www.amazon.com/Nineteen-Eighty-Four-George-Orwell/dp/0452284236

The justly famous political satire about Stalin’s Soviet Union.
Written in 1947-48 (Orwell reversed the last two digits to get the title when discussing the book with his publisher), it has seemed eerily prescient to generations of readers because totalitarian regimes of all stripes tend to say and do similar things to get and hold onto power.
Appropriate for ages 16+

Animal Farm
http://www.amazon.com/Animal-Farm-George-Orwell/dp/1595404295
Published in 1945, Animal Farm is Orwell’s earlier indictment of Stalinism, but it can be read as a warning regarding any form of collectivism because they all degrade into this model. “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
Appropriate for ages 12+
