Passion
by Mike McKinley
WHY I LIKE IT
Our April 2017 book of the month! Mike McKinley does kind of what Pastor Jordan has been doing in our Luke series. He takes us through a study of Christ's passion week, using the book of Luke as central text, exploring what Christ's death mean, and what it means for us in our everyday living. This is a great combination of theological study, and Christian living (which every good theological work should do anyway - help Christians practically live out their faith). Pick up a copy - this is a great addition to your library, and a great read for the Easter season!
