How About A Few New Books For the New Year?

20 Dec

Bookshelf

As believers, a great thing we can do for our personal growth and encouragement is read books.  And while there are many books you could read, I wanted to suggest five that I have read and found very beneficial.  I hope that you will consider making it your “resolution” to pick one of these up in the New Year:

The Gospel & Personal Evangelism (Pastor Mark Dever)
This is a great resource on defining the Gospel and our calling to share it with others.

One-To-One Bible Reading (David Helm)
Did you know that over 60% of young people say they would read the Bible with someone if they were asked? David Helm’s book explores how to read the Bible one-to-one, and the way God works through His Word to draw people to Himself.

Tempted & Tried (Dr. Russell Moore)
In this well-written book, Dr. Russell Moore (professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) examines the temptation of Christ in the wilderness, the ways in which we are tempted in exactly the same ways each and every day, and the hope that we must cling to in order to escape sin. 

God’s Big Picture (Vaughan Roberts)
Have you ever wondered how the Old and New Testaments fit together?  Vaughan Roberts helps show the over-arching story of the Bible and the way it all points us to Christ.  

The Trellis and The Vine (Colin Marshall & Tony Payne)
This is a great book for leaders, exploring the trellis (programs) and vine (organic involvement, outreach, and growth) of the local church.  Asks the question: What should disciple-making look like?
