If you’re after further resources to equip you to live faith in real life, here are some suggestions to start with. These books are favourites among the Glenridge Leadership Team and are resources that inspire and complement our preaches and teachings.
Disappearing Church - Mark Sayers
Disappearing Church will help you with pressing questions about the state of the Christian church, such as: Why does the Western church looks so much like world? Why are so many people leaving the faith?How can we get back to our roots? Mark Sayers reminds us that real growth happens when the church embraces its countercultural witness, not when it blends in.
Knowing God - JI Packer
J. I. Packer's Knowing God has become a classic of the Christian faith. Why? While it gives us information about God with clarity and grace, it does much more---it aids us in actually knowing him, in building our relationship with him, and helps draw us closer to him in love and worship.
The Drama of Scripture - Michael Goheen
The Drama of Scripture is an introduction to the basic story line and theology of the Bible. In considering the biblical story, the authors emphasize the unity of the whole, viewing the Bible as a drama in six acts--creation, sin, Israel, Christ, church, and new creation. Two overarching themes tie the biblical story together--covenant in the Old Testament and kingdom in the New Testament. Throughout, the authors suggest, God is revealed through the story and calls us to participate in his drama.
