Through this ongoing series, we want to share theological resources that have helped us grow in knowledge and understanding of the Lord, and appreciation for our shared Christian faith through the wider body of Christ. Whether blog posts, music, books, podcasts, visual art, etc., we hope that you can discover new sources of edification and encouragement.
"Oxford Dictionary's Word of the Year for 2016, 'post-truth,' is certainly not preparatory for unbelievers to understand the gospel and the Bible, which proclaims Christ, the truth. Yet, this is our climate, and in any secular cultural climate, the message of Christ is unique. Zachary's writes, 'no culture can survive without [truth].' Read his full article considering the cultural significance of this word via The Gospel Coalition." - Lianna
"Kevin DeYoung's book about the will of God changed my understanding of what God wills and how He works in our world, bringing much peace to my angsty heart regarding my future. Dispelling the myth that Christians are to seek out and understand some secret will of God for their lives, this excellent book is a perfect read to start the new year and focuses on what God actually asks of us in His Word—faith and obedience to His Word. If you are in a season of uncertainty, doubt or confusion about what lies ahead, I highly recommend this quick read to you." - Abby
Rules for Self Discovery, A.W. Tozer
"The newness of the year can serve as a time of self-evaluation, and these prompts for reflection that Unlocking the Bible posted from A.W. Tozer are as helpful as they are simply put. As I pray and read these, I think also of Psalm 139:23, ''Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!" Oh, we have a generous God who does not despise hearts that are tender for repentance. Thank You, Lord." - Lianna
