    The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller

    The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller

    What comes to mind when you think about the Parable of the Prodigal Son? Perhaps you can imagine the wayward son eating alongside the pigs in the pigsty. Or maybe you remember the father running out to clothe his son in his own robe and signet ring. But have you ever considered why the elder son refuses to enter the father's feast? Join us as we discuss Tim Keller's Prodigal God and the "elder brother" mentality that prevents us from experiencing the grace of God.

    The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    "Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of our Church. We are fighting to-day for costly grace." So begins Dietrich Bonhoeffer in arguably his most famous book, The Cost of Discipleship. Though he was writing to his fellow German believers over 80 years ago, his incisive message rings even more true today. Join us as we discuss the cost of following Jesus.

    One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

    Being joyful when things are going great might be easy, but how do we maintain joy in the midst of trials and difficulties? For Ann Voskamp, the answer lay in the posture of eucharisteo- thanksgiving. Join us today as we discuss how thanksgiving anchors us in times of suffering.
