Welcome to the New Life Church Bookstore . . . Sort of!

Recently we have been approved as an affiliate with Christian Book Distributors. That means that we can sell books and music by linking to their site. All you have to do is click on links, like the one below to the CBD site and purchase a book. Their pricing should be competitive and when you buy from the church site you will be supporting the church at the same time.

Our intent is one day to develop a book store on our website that includes recommended books. One of my chief pastoral frustrations is when people come to me and report they've started reading some really dumb book because a friend of their cousin-twice-removed had a substitute Sunday school teacher who recommended it. . .I'm hoping we can steer you into some really good reading.

So, as a bit of an experiment and to get started, here is the one book, in addition to the Bible, I would love every Christian to read:

Future Grace

By John Piper / Multnomah Publishers Inc.

In this book, author John Piper helps readers discover the key to overcoming sin and living a life that honors God. Many men and women attempt to walk upright out of gratitude for what Christ did in the past, but Piper encourages believers to look ahead to the grace God provides for us on a day-to-day, moment-by-moment basis--putting faith into action by laying hold of God's promises for the challenges we face.
