Back in March, I unveiled our intention to be a church that makes much of God by making disciples – ‘little Christs’ as CS Lewis put it years ago.

The process of discipleship takes place in time and space – so one of the reasons that we take this one day that we call Easter and focus all of our attention on the implications that Jesus experienced resurrection is that we need regular reminders and rhythms.

And because Easter is the most important day of the year for the Church (which means we should throw one heck of a party!) we need to reignite a passionate focus on the cross and the empty tomb.

To help you in that endeavor, let me suggest three different books based on how well you read and/or your spiritual maturity:

  • ‘I don’t love to read’/’I need to keep things simple’ – 50 ReasonsĀ  Why Jesus Came to Die (free .pdf) by John Piper
  • ‘I’ll read something if it’s good’/’I know enough to know that I need my heart and mind to grow’ – Scandalous by D.A. Carson
  • ‘I like big books and I cannot lie’/’I love to wrestle with complex theological questions’ – Surprised By Hope by NT Wright
