Good Summer Reads
Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live.
by David Platt
What did Jesus really mean when he said, “Follow Me”? Scores of people have been told that becoming a follower of Jesus simply involves believing certain truths or saying certain words. As a result, churches today are filled with people who believe they are Christians... but aren’t. Revealing a biblical picture of what it means to truly be a Christian, Follow Me explores the gravity of what we must forsake in this world, as well as the joy and deep satisfaction to be found in living for Christ.
Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work
by Timothy Keller and Katherine Leary Alsdorf
In a work world that is increasingly competitive and insecure, people often have nagging questions: Why am I doing this work? Why is it so hard? Tim Keller, pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and NY Times bestselling author, offers biblical perspectives on such pressing questions as: How can I find meaning and serve customers in a cutthroat, bottom-line-oriented workplace? How can I use my skills in a vocation that has meaning and purpose? Can I stay true to my values and still advance in my field?
The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism
by Tim Keller
Why does God allow suffering in the world? How can one religion be “right” and the others “wrong”? Why isn’t Christianity more inclusive? These are just a few of the questions and doubts even ardent believers wrestle with today. In this NY Times bestselling book, Keller addresses the most frequently voiced “doubts” skeptics bring to his church as well as the most important reasons for faith, explaining how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand against the backlash toward religion spawned by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.
by Paul David Tripp
Sin has ravaged the house that God created. This world sits slumped, disheveled, and in pain, groaning for the restoration that can only be accomplished by the hands of Him who built it in the first place. The bad news is that you and I are living right in the middle of the restoration process. The good news is that the divine Builder will not relent until everything about His house is made totally new again.
Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples
by Francis Chan
Jesus gave His followers a command: “Follow me.” And a promise: “And I will equip you to find others to follow me.” We were made to make disciples. Multiply will equip you to carry out Jesus’ ministry. One plus one plus one. Every copy of Multiply is designed to do what Jesus did: make disciples who make disciples who make disciples until the world knows the truth of Jesus Christ.
