We all know that reading is a great way to deepen our understanding and grow in our faith, but with so many ‘Christian’ books out there, where do you start?
Nothing is more helpful than a recommendation from someone you trust. Here at the FiG, we’ve done the hard work for you and quizzed some people whose opinions we respect to find out which books they have found helpful in their walk with Jesus.
This week Dr Andrew Ure, a GP and Ruling Elder at Grace Church Gore shares some books that have helped him in his walk with Jesus and work as an Elder.
Keep an eye out for further instalments of ‘There’s a book…’
