· Knowing Scripture, R. C. Sproul: The best, most succinct resource we’d found for  teaching people how to read and interpret Scripture well.

· Discipling Essentials, Greg Ogden: Over 15 topics to use in a discipling relationship or small group setting that cover the basics of Christianity.  Each includes scripture study questions and a supplemental reading.

· Is Believing in God Irrational?, Amy Orr-Ewing: A short read that equips you to answer those with skepticalquestions like “How can I know God is real?” and “Is Christianity believable in light of other religions?”

· Being White, Harris & Schaupp: Our culture both celebrates and fights over ethnic & cultural differences.  In a multi-cultural world, what does it mean to be a white person?  How do we build relationships across ethnicboundaries?

· Stronger Than You Think, Kim Gaines Eckhert: A great book for women that focuses on revealing our brokenness and seeking healing even while we long to be whole.  Delves deeply into scripture and includes study questions.
