The Company We Keep: In Search of Biblical Friendship

WHY I LIKE IT
Our June 2017 Book of the Month, this is a very unique book addressing a neglected topic: the Christian's pursuit of friendship! Grab a copy in preparation for our summer Renew series, on "The One Anothers."
Side by Side: Walking with Others in Wisdom and Love
Side by Side: Walking with Others in Wisdom and Love
by Edward T. Welch
WHY I LIKE IT
A very good encouragement and treatment of church life, and relationships within the body of Christ. We're making this our May book of the month, as a lead-up for our Renew nights in July which will have a theme of the "one anothers!" Pick up a copy - we'll be posting quotes throughout May!
Passion
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!
