Highlighted Equipping Resources - Taking God at His Word
This Sunday at Summit Woods, you will notice several books have been placed on the shelves in the welcome desk that are available to you. These are resources we would like to highlight to the congregation for a period of time. These resources will change 3 times a year to highlight a new set of titles we think will be edifying.
The purpose of highlighting these resources is simply to put biblically solid, Christ-exalting, affection-fueling resources in the hands of the members of Summit Woods for their personal growth in the Lord, to equip them to do the work of ministry, and for use in discipleship relationships.
Perhaps you’ve been looking for a new book for yourself to read in your devotional time, or perhaps you’ve been wanting to get together with a brother or sister in the Lord and desire to encourage them in their walk with the Lord – these resources are there to be readily available for you.
There will essentially be 5 categories of resources that we will highlight: theology, sanctification, Christian biography, church history, and the church.
Every other month we will send out a blog highlighting one of these resources. The first of these is our theology resource: Taking God at His Word.
Can we trust the Bible completely? Is it sufficient for our complicated lives? Can we really know what it teaches? With his characteristic wit and clarity, award-winning author Kevin DeYoung has written an accessible introduction to the Bible that answers important questions raised by Christians and non-Christians. This book will help you understand what the Bible says about itself and the key characteristics that contribute to its lasting significance.
Avoiding technical jargon, this winsome volume will encourage you to read and believe the Bible—confident that it truly is God’s Word.
“This is a brilliant, succinct, yet thorough study of the authority and sufficiency of Scripture, based on what Scripture says about itself. Clarity and passion are the distinguishing marks of Kevin DeYoung’s writing, and this may be his finest, most important work yet.”
