Disappointment with God

Philip Yancy, What’s So Amazing About Grace?

A look at Christian teachings on forgiveness and how grace plays out in people’s lives. This award-winning book. Nearly 25 years after “What’s So Amazing About Grace?” was first published, its message remains relevant.
“We all felt if there’s ever a time for the message of grace, now is the time,” Yancy said. “It’s such a divided country, and the church has not been a helpful part of that. “
This book is the foundation for the current Wednesday Evening Bible Study.
Basic Christianity

John Stott, Basic Christianity   Synopsis by Marianne Harper

I recently read “Basic Christianity” while on vacation. I was so taken with this book that I found myself crying while sitting on the beach, but these tears were tears of joy. “Basic Christianity” offers a Biblical portrait of Christ but then moves on to explain how we can become Christians and live as Christians. We are given the answers to who Jesus was and what it means to follow him. John Stott defines the fundamental claims of Christianity and how we, as believers, can apply these to our daily lives to live as Christians and, in addition, he shows us the resources that God provides for us to be able to do that. Mr. Stott examines the historical facts on which Christianity is based and backs up his claims with scripture. Mr. Stott ends his book with summing up the privileges of being Christians as well as what our responsibilities are to be Christians. I believe that this book should be in every Christian’s library.

C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

A must-have for every Christian. C.S. Lewis, as only he could do, reverses the perspective so that the reader can understand what the Evil One and his minions view Christianity.


John Bunyan, The Pilgrim’s Progress

Quite probably the most published and widely read book of all time with the exception of the Bible. While in prison in the 16th Century, Buyan wrote an allegory of the Christian journey to the “Celestial City.”


Alan Jacobs, The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography by Alan Jacobs

This is not a repeat of the BCP but is really a biography of the life of the Book of Common Prayer. This book is a fascinating read of the origins and evolution of the Book of Common Prayer.
