Acts For Everyone   by: N. T. Wright


Writing in an accessable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us to approach the rich and many-sided story of the book of Acts. Wright shows how the book builds on Luke's Gospel, laying out the continuing work and teaching of the now risen and ascended Jesus in the power of the Spirit. 

His writing captures the vivid way in which Luke's work 

draws us all into he story, while leaving the ending open and challenging, inviting Christians today to pick up and carry on the story as we in turn live our lives in the service of Jesus.

Simply Jesus  by: N. T. Wright

N.T. Wright is a respected author and theologian. In this book, he backs up and takes a big-picture look at how people see Jesus and why. Then he attempts to strip away everything but what the Bible actually reveals. This book will be a challenging read for some, but it is highly recommended!

The Jesus of Suburbia  by: Mike Erre

Like the first-century Pharisees, we've reduced Christianity to a set of propositional beliefs. Truth is, we've gotten away from what it really means to be a Christian. In 'The Jesus of Suburbia', Mike Erre reveals that we've created a Jesus in our own image. In a fresh, startling manner, Erre helps us understand that the real Jesus is calling us to live, act, and think in ways that overturn the status quo.
