Written Resources and Study Aids

Booklets

Truth and life intersect daily as we travel on our journey through this world. These short works were written to help us wrestle with issues important in our times. They are diverse in their subject matter yet maintain a single focus. We pray that these might help you see all of life in relationship to the gospel of Jesus Christ. For from him, to him and through him are all things.
