Book Recommendation

During the Christmas season people can’t help be confronted with the question, “What’s Christmas all about?” It’s in our Christmas carols, our cards, even in the name of the season too. It is the celebration of the birth of Christ. As much as our culture has tried to extract any religious meaning out of the Christmas season, you can’t escape the fact that it is more than just about exchanging gifts.


Christmas is a great time to share the good news of Christ with your unbelieving friends, family and co-workers. The season provides the perfect segue into gospel conversations. To help you with objections you might encounter during these conversations, I’ve selected the book  Evidence for God this month. This will provide you with powerful tools to help you overcome the common issues people have with believing in God. Please be sure to request Evidence for God with your generous donation this month.

The afterlife seems like the great unknown. Human imagination and Hollywood have come up with many speculations about what lies beyond. How can we set aside the misconceptions and find the truth?


What are the straightforward, biblical answers everyone needs to know about heaven, hell, and the afterlife? Mike Fabarez examines 10 faulty beliefs that are surprisingly widespread—and look to God’s Word alone for the facts. You will find the truth about common misperceptions like:


  • When I die, I’ll go to sleep until the resurrection
  • On my way to heaven I’ll have to put in some time in purgatory
  • Heaven will be boring with very little to do

You don’t need to guess about the future—God’s Word is ready to inform your mind and settle your heart. Let this book guide you toward a deeper joy, faith, and understanding of eternity.
