Lots of Arch Books have been added to our church library. These are excellent books for our little ones. They each contain a Bible story form either the Old or New Testament - told with colorful pictures and, most often, rhyming text. Consider checking these books out for your children and grandchildren. It's never too soon for our children to learn God's Word.
Pastor most recently finished teaching on the first 3 chapters of Genesis in Tuesday evening Bible study. With that in mind we now have a couple of books about Genesis. The first one is called In the Beginning, GOD: Creation from God’s Perspective by Dr. Joel Heck. Dr. Heck addresses the creation-evolution debate with the Word of God. The second is a devotional by Martin Luther called Day By Day in Genesis. Short readings for each day or to read several at one sitting.
Some other books:
If CS Lewis is an appreciated author, you might enjoy looking at From Atheism to Christianity: the Story of C.S. Lewis. It is the story of how one of the world’s most famous atheists became one of the most famous Christians. Thank, Praise, Serve and Obey: Recover the Joys of Piety by Rev. Will Weedon is an easy read, directing us back to some simple ways of recovering the Christian piety in our lives. He also makes it clear the difference between being pious and practicing piety. If biographies are your thing, you might consider The Second Martin: The Life and Theology of Martin Chemnitz. After Martin Luther, he has been called the most important theologian in the history of Lutheranism. A Martyr’s Faith in a Faithless World by Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller is the last of the new books. It is filled with encouragement for these end times we live in.
