BOOKS:

Overcomer

Dr. David Jeremiah

It's hard out there. Sometimes it feels like the world is ripping apart at the seams and that our hearts can't take anymore. But no matter what the world throws at us each day - anxiety, fear, confusion, temptation - we have choices on how to respond. Dr. Jeremiah uses Paul's instructions in Ephesians 6 to lay out a pathway to spiritual victory by putting on the armor of God. We are not alone in the fight!


Suffering Is Never for Nothing

Elisabeth Elliot

"There have been some hard things in my life, of course, as there have been in yours, and I cannot say to you I know exactly what you're going through. But I can say that I know the One who knows. And I've come to see that it's through the deepest suffering that God has taught me the deepest lessons." (Elisabeth Elliot)


Read the sage wisdom in this book from a woman who has lived her life faithfully loving and serving God wholeheartedly.

Heaven and Hell: a Biblical Guide

Dr. Robert Lightner

This was one of the last books written by our own beloved Bob Lightner before he went home to be with the Lord. This book gives insight to the nature of the eternal state and the destiny of those living on this side of eternity. Questions are answered such as Who will go to heaven? Who can never go to heaven? What about those who cannot believe? What about suicide? What are God's future judgments? This book is a concise and helpful guide to the eternal state of every soul.

Pastor's Pick from Jonathan Shotts

Good News for Anxious Christians

Phillip Cary

"I would love to recommend this book! We went through it during the spring semester with the Young Adult Ministry and it was a fantastic book. Very challenging and yet very freeing." (Jonathan Shotts)


Phillip Cary explains that knowing God is a gradual, long-term process that comes through the Bible experienced in Christian community, not a to-do list designed to help us live the Christian life "right". This clearly written book covers 10 things Christians don't have to do to be close to God.

Extraordinary (not rated)

Based on a true marriage journey, this movie tells the amazing story of ultra-marathon runner and college professor David Horton, his wife Nancy, and their attempt to finish their marriage race well. Although proud of his incredible athletic accomplishments and the impact he has on his students, David's family continuously pays a high price for his years of competitive running. Following David's open heart surgery and irreparable damage to his knees, Nancy is ready for him to hang up his racing shoes for good and focus his boundless energy on their family. Instead, feeling called by God to "inspire people one last time", David sets off for a 2,900-mile race across America.
