"Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better," by Brant Hansen

posted Jan 5, 2020, 3:06 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life BetterThis book was recommended to me by someone in our congregation and it is one of the most challenging, yet helpful, books I’ve read in a long time. The premise of the book is that believers spend an inordinate amount of emotional time and energy taking offense at the perceived slights, foibles, insensitivity, and outright sinfulness of others when most of the time, these things would be better left to God to deal with. The result is often self-righteousness, judgmentalism and lack of faith which result rob us of peace, joy and other fruit of the Spirit. Easy to read. Very thought-provoking. Highly recommended.   

"The Prodigal Prophet" by Timothy Keller

The Prodigal Prophet: Jonah and the Mystery of God's MercyHere is a wonderful and easy-to-follow overview of the message of Jonah by Tim Keller. You’ll come away with a renewed appreciation for the grace, mercy and patience of God – as well as a greater understanding of the issues that drove Jonah’s initial rebellion, and God’s patient dealing with a prodigal prophet.  

"Failure: The Back Door to Success" by Erwin W. Lutzer

posted Dec 15, 2019, 12:55 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Failure: the Back Door to SuccessHow to deal with past failure, present chaos and the feeling that it is too late all from a biblical perspective are just some of the subjects addressed by Erwin Lutzer (pastor of Moody Church in Chicago). Effective real-life examples help us see how Christ is the answer in ways we may not have discovered previously.  

"The Storm-Tossed Family: How the Cross Reshapes the Home" by Russell Moore

posted Dec 15, 2019, 12:50 PM by Fccea Webmaster

The Storm-Tossed Family: How the Cross Reshapes the HomeThe sub-title says it all in this book which is a comprehensive study of every aspect of family life (including family life in the church) as it is, or should be, affected by reference to the cross. How does the selflessness and atoning work of Christ there related to 21st century family life? Challenging – but very worthwhile. 

"Christ's Prophetic Plans: A Futuristic Premillennial Primer" by John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue

posted Dec 1, 2019, 2:24 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Christ's Prophetic Plans: A Futuristic Premillennial PrimerIf you are interested in delving deeper into the the subject of future things as prophesied in Scripture (Eschatology), this book will be very helpful. It gives an even-handed treatment to various perspectives, but in the end shows how a consistent application of interpreting Scripture as you would any other book leads clearly to a premillennial conclusion. 

"Why I Love the Apostle Paul: 30 Reasons," by John Piper

Why I Love the Apostle Paul: 30 ReasonsThis is an excellent resource for life and teaching of the Apostle Paul in 30 bite-size chunks.  It covers the major events and teaching of the apostle in a way that is understandable and practical.

"Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions About Life and Sexuality," by Nancy R. Pearcey

posted Sep 3, 2019, 4:28 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and SexualityAs everyone who is paying any attention knows, the sexual revolution of the 60’s has turned into a tidal wave of present-day confusion over the morality of sexual relations, marriage, abortion, gender identity, transgender issues and more. Pearcey clearly and compellingly defines where we are, how we got here and where all of this is leading. She shows how it all relates to worldview – secular vs. Christian. And her point is that while a secular worldview now dominates societal and political norms, the Christian worldview is more compassionate and far more closely related to most people’s everyday experience. This book is must reading for every parent and anyone else interested in the current trajectory of our culture. Thoroughly researched, documented and illustrated. Lovingly compassionate in tone. Available at the Info Desk.

"The Knowledge of the Holy," by A. W. Tozer

posted Jul 24, 2019, 12:43 PM by Fccea Webmaster

The Knowledge of the Holy: The Attributes of God: Their Meaning in the Christian LifeThis book will dramatically enhance your knowledge of and relationship with God. It deals with the attributes of God – that is the characteristics of God that can be somewhat defined in human terms. But throughout, Tozer’s emphasis is on the transcendence (“otherness”) of God without which we cannot really begin to appreciate and glorify and praise Him. A very helpful study.

"What Is the Gospel?" by Greg Gilbert

posted Jul 24, 2019, 12:38 PM by Fccea Webmaster

What Is the Gospel? (9Marks)If you think that the gospel is receiving Jesus as personal Savior, praying a prayer, walking an aisle, feeding the poor, doing your best, you need to read this book. All of those things may be good – but they are not the gospel. What is it? Read this excellent, short, clarifying book.  $3 at the Information Desk
