Love Thy Body by Nancy Pearcey

"Pearcey is one of the smartest people on the planet. The way she applies time-tested philosophy and theology to our modern sexual revolution is staggering-and staggeringly helpful for the 21st-century Christian."

"A heady and sometimes sobering reminder of how our worship forms us as people, whether we are worshiping the Lord or ourselves." 

The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch

The Insanity of God by Nik Ripken

“I've clearly become too comfortable with God and I was made aware of my heart's very suspicious tendency "to follow the Spirit" into comfortable places. Ripken reminded me that my call to Christ was, and still is, a call to die to self.” 

What is the Gospel? by Greg Gilbert

“Do you want to share the Gospel? Then you should know the Gospel. Unfortunately, many of us talk about the Bible and manage to miss the Gospel. Gilbert does a great job of singling out the exact message we must proclaim to ourselves and unbelievers.” 

Evangelism: How the Whole Church Speaks of Jesus by Mack Stiles

“This book graciously reminded me that evangelism is not the job of the "spiritually elite". It is the job of every Christian. Stiles taught me what it looks like to begin to put evangelism into the DNA of our college ministry, and even more than that, our entire church.” 

Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

“A classic read from a classic author, C.S. Lewis manages to sum up the bedrock of our faith with very profound insight. You'll walk away more aware and more thankful for the simple faith that God has made available to all people.”
