As we began our study the book of Hebrews this year, we were encouraged on Sunday to read a good book about Jesus this year. Below are some recommendations from some of our leaders. They run the gamut from devotional (e.g. The Jesus I Never Knew by Yancey) to doctrinal (e.g. The Cross of Christ by Stott). Pick one and get to know Jesus better!

NOTE:  We are offering a LifeChange class on the life of Christ in the Gospel of Mark. It begins on Feb. 19th,  Sunday mornings at 10:45 in Room 601! This would be an outstanding compliment to our study of Hebrews!
