Several new very helpful books have arrived, and we will be gradually placing them in our library over the next few months. Three books worthy of your time this month are: Mere Christianity, C.S.

In John 17, Jesus asks his Father to sanctify--make holy his disciples by his truth. Truth is the primary means God uses to make believers more like Jesus. The main source of truth is the Scriptures and in fact, the profit of any other resources must be measured by how much it increases our love for God and his word. Christian Publishing is a big business and not all publishers are created equal. Because we all have limited time to read Christian books, each month, we will be highlighting one new book for our library. Each of these books are of exceptional quality and guaranteed to build up anyone who reads them. Feel free to stop by the library to check out any of the books featured here.

“Shepherding a Child’s Heart” by Tedd Tripp was perhaps the first Christian parenting book to move away from teaching techniques and proverbial wisdom.
