A Better Hope: Enjoying the Resurrection Life, Sam Allberry
This is an excellent little book. It would make a great basis for a sermon series on the Christian hope, or for a series of study group meetings on this theme.
Who Is God? Key Moments of Biblical Revelation, Richard Bauckham
This short book is an excellent introduction to key aspects of the biblical answer to the question ‘Who is God?’ It is based on wideranging and up to date scholarship, but it is written in a clear and accessible style.
Is Jesus Truly God?: How the Bible Teaches the Divinity of Christ, Gregory R Lanier
This book is a scholarly yet accessible study of the New Testament evidence for the full deity of Jesus Christ. It will prove to be an invaluable resource for those studying Christology at university or theological college, for ministers and for ordinary lay Christians.
Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers, Dane C Ortlund
This very helpful book reminds us that Jesus was, is, and always will be, the God who is infinitely gentle and infinitely loving and who promises to give rest to the souls of all those who put their trust in him. All Christians in need of genuine biblical encouragement should read this book
Retrieving Augustine's Doctrine of Creation: Ancient Wisdom for Current Controversy, Gavin Ortlund
This is a book that will be of interest to anyone who wants to think more deeply about how we should understand the doctrine of creation today. Well worth a careful read.
