Book Recommendation

If the last year and a half has taught us anything, it is that we need to be in community with others. Of course, this has been a biblical truth for Christians for thousands of years. We derive strength, encouragement, accountability and support from other Christians in our life.


However, with so much separation recently many are hurting. This month I have chosen Ed Welch’s book, Side by Side: Walking with Others in Wisdom and Love. If you are hurting or know someone who is, this book will equip you how to help those who need help.

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.
