In the month of December, we’ve been learning about how God wants to be WITH us. If you want to take a deeper dive, get a hold of one or all three of these books in the lobby on Sundays, or online through these Amazon/Kindle links.

Many believers feel stunted in Christian growth, beating themselves up over failures and pulling away from God thinking He tallies our defects and hangs His head in disappointment. Ragamuffin Gospel reminds us nothing could be further from the truth; the Father beckons us with a “furious love” that burns brightly and constantly. Only when we truly embrace God’s grace can we bask in the joy of a gospel that enfolds the most needy of His family — the “ragamuffins.” 

If we’ve grown weary of Christianity, if we find most any local church uninspiring, maybe the problem lies not in the Christian faith or these faithful bodies, but in our own disgruntled hearts.  WITH unmasks the clichéd posturing that often masquerades as genuine communion with Jesus.  More importantly, it takes readers to the places they must be with the Church if faith, hope, and love are to truly mark our lives.

The Cure gives a diagnosis of our religious obsession with sin-management, showing how that practice has sent millions away wounded, angry and cynical. The Cure offers an authentic experience in Christ that frees some from self-rewarded righteousness, and others from a beaten down striving for a righteousness they can never seem to attain. The Cure infuses a relational theology of grace and identity, to heal, free and create genuine, loving, life-giving communities.
