Not A Fan by Kyle Idleman (P700)
Are you a follower of Jesus? You would think that’s a very easy question to answer right? The author calls this book a “define the relationship” kind of conversation that Jesus wants to have with you. He talks about the demands and rewards of being a true disciple.
Sifted by Rick Lawrence (P850)
The subtitle of the book, “God’s Response to Satan’s Outrageous Demand” is interesting enough to make you want to pick it up.
Have you ever been so shaken, beaten, and agitated by life that you feel like you’re falling apart? Why does God allow us to be sifted like wheat? Drawing on Luke 22:31–32, Lawrence explores the agonizing trials that devastate us, the good God who allows them, and the beauty they ultimately reveal in us.
Jim and Casper Go to Church by Jim Henderson and Matt Casper (P550)
A Christian and an atheist walked into a church….sounds like the beginning of a joke right? But that’s actually the brilliant premise of this book that sees Jim recruit atheist Matt to go around the country and visit 12 leading churches and have meaningful dialogue about a non-believer’s “first impression” of these churches and Christianity.
Real Marriage by Mark and Grace Driscoll (P675)
This book (and the video series that can be found here) has caused a bit of controversy due to some of the topics discussed, in the usual frank manner of Mark Driscoll. But it’s an honest and vulnerable book on marriage that’s like “a personal counseling session with a couple you cannot surprise, you cannot shock into silence, who will respond to every question with wisdom, humility, and realism.” It’s a story of how they have struggled and how they have found healing through the power of the only reliable source: the Bible.
A Shot of Faith (to the head) by Mitch Stokes
Atheists and skeptics have always called out Christians as being naive, delusional, even dangerous. Mitch Stokes, Senior Fellow of Philosophy at New Saint Andrews College turns the table on them, so to speak. He analyzes and dismantles their claims while creating a simple yet solid case for Christian belief. This is the book for Christians who are secretly afraid of debating with the skeptics and atheists because you think our faith cannot hold up to their arguments.
An Act of God by Erwin Lutzer (P400)
How can we begin to understand or explain the tough questions about world disasters? Should we question if God is in control of major disasters, or even ask if he caused them? How do we answer the probing questions of non-Christians? How can God be considered good and just in light of the tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, and floods that are visited on his creation and his children? These are just some of the questions the author tries to answer in this thought-provoking examination of God’s sovereignty.
God’s Story, Your Story: Youth Edition by Max Lucado (P600)
Using New Testament stories and modern-day examples plus anecdotes from the original adult version of the book, Lucado weaves a story where young people can see the bigger and God-planned story of their lives.
Father Hunger by Douglas Wilson (P650)
Fatherlessness or absentee fathers is one of the most common problems faced by a society and culture that is fraying on the edges. Using leading-edge research and incisive analysis plus real examples, the author explains “why God calls men to love and lead their families”. He encourages and challenges men to embrace the higher calling of fatherhood and become the men their families desperately need them to be.
The Slow Fade by Reggie Joiner, Chuck Bomar and Abbie Smith (P525)
Why do a lot of college-aged Christians suddenly become disconnected from the faith and from the church? Facing critical decisions that affect the rest of their lives, they people need a faith community more than ever. Coauthors Reggie Joiner, Chuck Bomar, and Abbie Smith-a senior pastor, a college pastor, and a twentysomething-rethink one-on-one mentorship as the way to end the slow fade. They offer insights and suggestions that will help anyone get started fighting the fade.
Choosing Your Faith by Mark Mittelberg (P550)
In a world of spiritual options, people constantly tell us what to believe. Yet, while we hear these pleas, we’re already functioning with existing beliefs—even if they are beliefs by default. So how do we choose what to believe—especially in the area of faith? Do we need to choose? Mittelberg invites readers to examine why we believe what we believe
