A Case for Easter by Lee Strobel
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity. But in our sophisticated age, when myth has given way to science, who can take such a claim seriously? Focusing on his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history's most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief. Written in a hard-hitting journalistic style, this book probes the core issues of the resurrection. Jesus Christ, risen from the dead: superstitious myth or life-changing reality? The evidence is in. The verdict is up to you. Children’s activities available. Cost for book is $2; study guide is $7.

The Christian Atheist: Believing in God but Living as if He Doesn’t Exist by Craig Groeschell
After over a decade of successful ministry, Craig Groeschell had to make a painful self-admission: although he believed in God, he was leading his church like God didn’t exist. Christians and Christian Atheists everywhere will be nodding their heads as they are challenged to take their own honest moment and ask the question: am I putting my whole faith in God but still living as if everything was up to me?

Children’s activities available.

Invitation to Romans (short-term Disciple Bible Study)

Join us for this Short-Term Disciple Bible Study: Invitation to Romans”. Mon., starts Jan. 7 at 6:30pm. Led by Scott and Paige Nelson. Exploring how people have interpreted the book of Romans through the ages is a good lens to view the history of Christianity itself. Compare what Paul writes in Romans to what theologians like Augustine, Luther and Calvin say in trying to understand Paul in their time. At the end of this study you will have a more informed commitment to Paul's radical vision of God's relationship to both Christians and Jews and to their relationship to each other, thanks to the "love of God in Christ Jesus." You will read just 2 chapters of Romans a week in this 8-week study. The cost of the book is $13. Childcare is not available at this time. Sign up by emailing kim@ehumc.org.
