This is our first ever release of our top ten suggestions of books to read in the new year. We have compiled ten books that cover a variety of different subjects from apologetics to prayer. These are listed in no particular order, but are all of great importance. We hope to continue this trend every year, providing good material for a generation who wants to know the Word and Jesus Christ at a deeper level.
1. God's Not Dead by Rice Broocks
Description: "Faith in God is rising, yet so is skepticism. The evidence for the existence of God must be grasped and clearly articulated to answer this challenge, "says author Rice Broocks. "The success of the atheistic agenda is mostly due to the fact that the theistic responses to atheists' claims have not been widely circulated." God's Not Dead guides seekers and reminds believers that: real faith is not blind -- it is based on evidence, life is no accident -- there is meaning and purpose in the universe, good and evil are no illusions, and the God who exists has revealed Himself in history through Jesus Christ. Drawing from the areas of philosophy, science, history, and theology, we can form persuasive arguments for God's existence and His presence in our lives. This book equips us with the tools, providing clear, easy-to-follow explanations of the key concepts and controversies. God's Not Dead is apologetics for the twenty-first century.
2. Radical by David Platt
Description: In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple -- then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.
3. Follow Me by David Platt
Description: Is it possible for people to say they believe in Jesus but not truly be born again? Is it possible for people to claim they have accepted Christ into their hearts yet not actually be Christians? Not only is it possible, but according to Pastor David Platt, it's also highly probable. The author of the bestselling book Radical is convinced that many people

Have you ever wondered exactly what the Gospel message is? Most people know that Christ died on the cross and paid for their sins, but why did that work? Why did Christ have to die? Maybe you have never heard the Gospel message before. Maybe you have never been told that Christ died for YOU. If you have never heard the Gospel, or aren't sure what it is, this is for you. Even if you have heard it before, maybe you have never responded to it. Whatever the case may be, we have laid out the Gospel in a clear, concise way in order to help anyone who wants to know more about its message. Maybe you are already following Christ and you know that He has commanded us to share the Gospel, but you're not sure where to start or what to say. If that is the case, this is for you too. We all need to know the Gospel message inside and out. The Gospel is the most important message you will ever hear or ever share in your entire life. The message of Gospel is the greatest gift we have ever received and the greatest gift we could ever give.
What Is the Gospel?
The gospel is the good news that God became a man in Jesus Christ. He lived the life we should have lived and died the death we should have died in our place. Three days later he rose from the dead, proving he was the son of God and offering salvation to all who would repent and believe His message and follow Him.
The Problem of Sin
The Bible says that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Well, what is sin? Sin is anything that is stands contrary to or falls short of

Don't miss our new 'All Or Nothing' article series! Coming soon!
"Humanity admires feats of heroism, sacrifice, love, and honor. We revere people who stand up with fervor and fight for justice, truth, and who forgo their own personal gain for the benefit of others. We are moved by acts of courage and valor, and by the people who accomplish them. When someone inspiringly portrays these acts in a film, we award them with Academy Awards and Golden Globes. The stories that we cheer on, laugh with, and cherish are the ones of great love, great courage, or great sacrifice. The stories of people who laid down their life for another or who go to great lengths for love. These are the ideals that humanity identifies with, and in which we search for our purpose in life. Out of all of the stories, legends, and tales, there is one true account of love, sacrifice, courage, and hope that stands above all the rest. The story of Jesus Christ is the greatest account of courage, the utmost description of sacrifice, and the deepest love story ever told…"

All or Nothing: Putting Christ at the Center of Our Lives
Friday, January 3, 2014
God is calling this generation to its true purpose in Christ. This is an appeal for this generation to live up to that purpose and become what it was destined to be. “All or nothing” is a battle cry; a cry to rally and stir up a generation that will give God our all or nothing at all. A generation that does not make Christ simply a part of our lives, but a generation that puts Christ at the center of everything we do.
We live in a generation where apathy is the norm, not the exception. We are known for our addiction to video games, lack of interest, and irresponsibility. Researchers suggest that this is the most biblically illiterate generation in history! It’s time to change that. When Jesus tells us to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength” this is not a suggestion but a command. So let’s be the generation of David’s, the generation of
