Surprised by Hope Rethinking heaven, the resurrection, and the mission of the church.
N.T. Wright

What happens after we die? Wright shows how most Christians get it wrong. We do not “go to” heaven; we are resurrected and heaven comes down to earth—a difference that makes all of the difference to how we live on earth.

In the midst of life’s challenges, so often our faith feels small and weak. In this book one of the world’s premier Bible teachers reminds us that what matters is not so much our faith itself as much as Who our faith is in.

The Reason for God: Belief in an age of skepticism

Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking 

Susan Cain

Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.

The Case for the Psalms: Why they are essential    

N.T. Wright

“Prayer is an act of rebellion. In this incisive and fresh look at the Book of the Psalms…enter an alternative worldview that the Psalms embody. Let this book lead you to the Psalms—but beware, it’s the wardrobe door into a new world order.” (Scot McKnight, author of The King Jesus Gospel)
