Resources

RESOURCES WE HAVE STUDIED AS A CHURCH

No list of recommended books will be complete or perfect. We know from 1 Corinthians that our knowledge of God will always be incomplete this side of heaven, and the same is true for even the most intelligent authors and most humble teachers. Still, our church has gained from the reading of the following resources during our time in small groups and study together.

 

THE BIBLE

The translation we regularly use is the English Standard Version, though we will at times refer to other translations for closer understanding, and we will recommend books that rely on other translations.
