Book: The Book of James by Francis Chan
True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God.
Book: Counter Culture by David Platt
Counter Culture: Welcome to the front lines. Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn―traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, churches, schools and homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond to all this? David Platt shows Christians how to actively take a stand on such issues as poverty, sex trafficking, marriage, abortion, racism and religious liberty―and challenges us to become passionate, unwavering voices for Christ.
