Fear, desire and guilt. Those are often the feelings Christians have about money. Jesus offers us a better way – a way of being content rather than coveting, generous rather than grasping and peaceful rather than anxious. Here are some books to help you as you consider this thought.
Do you have little money, lots of money or something in between? Full of common-sense advice on spending, saving and giving, this book views life and giving in the light of God’s generous grace and his promise of eternal glory.

FAMILY MONEY MATTERS
How we manage our family finances is an important issue. As Christians our lives should demonstrate different values from those of the world around us. How should we plan financially for the future? Should we ever get into debt? This thoroughly practical book addresses these matters.
CHRISTIANS IN AN AGE OF WEALTH
This book addresses the tough questions about the place and purpose of wealth and material possessions in a Christian’s life. Blomberg suggests that the sharing of goods and possessions is the key safeguard against both greed and covertness and expands of the concept of giving generously, even sacrificially to those in more need.

THE TREASURE PRINCIPLE
95% of Christians have never come to terms with a biblical perspective on their material possessions. God has entrusted His wealth to us and called upon us to manage and invest His money. When Jesus told His followers to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,” they discovered an astounding secret: how joyful giving brings God maximum glory and his children maximum pleasure. This book introduces us to a revolution in material freedom and radical generosity.
HEALTH, WEALTH & HAPPINESS
46% of self-identifying Christians believe that God will make them rich if they have enough faith. Radio & TV proclaim this type of gospel daily – the gospel of prosperity. It teaches that God wants to fulfill our every desire for health, wealth and happiness and all it takes is sufficient faith. Is this the gospel? Or is it just a feel good, self-centered appeal to our materialistic impulses that omits the message of Jesus and the cross?
It has been five hundred years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther’s theses called for the reform of the church and served as the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation. Its impact is still felt today. Today we learn about 5 truths that shaped the Christian Life.
How is the Reformation still relevant today? As political pressure mounts, morality drifts with today’s culture, and evangelicalism becomes more and more refined in a post-Christian world, it’s even more important to hold the convictions of the great Reformation closer than ever. In short, the solas point us to vibrant Christian community as well as personal identity in Christ.
This Bible study examines the five core truths that came from the Reformation, now referred to as the solas. Group members will explore these essential convictions of the faith and emerge more immersed in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The solas include:
Sola Scriptura (by Scripture alone)
Sola gratia (by grace alone)
Sola fide (through faith alone)
Solus Christus (through Christ alone)
Soli Deo gloria (glory to God alone)
As you’ll see in this study, the solas are more than cold Latin terms that academics throw around in church-history books. The five solas, like the Reformation itself, are intensely practical. They were the DNA of the Reformation and are still the DNA of the church today. They are grounded in a real-life, everyday following of Jesus. They’re the most important, basic scriptural truths you can ever believe. We stand on the shoulders of Christians in the past, and knowing where we came from will help us keep moving forward with passion and biblical clarity.
Echoes of the Reformation Leader Kit contains aBible Study Book, 1 DVD with a promotional video and another DVD with six 15- to 20-minute video sessions featuring authors Kevin DeYoung, Al Mohler, and Trevin Wax. These panel discussions introduce the topic, overview historical significance, explore the theological meanings of the solas, and include illustrations for applying these key transformative truths.

Through his death, your life has purpose and meaning.
Carson broadly surveys Jesus’s biblical name as “the Son of God,” and then by focusing on two key texts that speak of Christ’s sonship.

As we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation , CBD will be highlighting books that discuss the contributions of some of the heroes of the Reformation Era. Today we begin with Martin Luther.
Does your knowledge of Martin Luther’s writings start and end with the hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”?
As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation he galvanized, we discover a Martin Luther who was one of history’s most colorful and influential figures. His story is well known, but his powerful writing is often unfamiliar to us.
This illustrated introductory guide to Luther’s life, theology, and works introduces and summarizes his major writings, such as The Bondage of the Will and On the Councils and the Church, and includes, with annotations, the complete Ninety-Five Theses. Stephen Nichols also gives encouragement and guidance for studying Luther’s ethical writings, “table talk,” hymns, and sermons. Includes a select guide for further reading.
“As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, may we not only appreciate the profound ways God used Martin Luther, but may we learn from him. Dr. Nichols gives us a front-row seat on Luther’s life. As we watch, may we have the same boldness and the same lifelong commitment to the gospel.”
—R.C. Sproul, Founder, Ligonier Ministries
“A marvelous mixture of biography, history, theology, and anecdote. If you don’t feel the heartbeat of the Reformation in these pages, check your pulse!”

There has never been a time when science has had such a massive impact on our lives, and technological progress seems to accelerate every year. This has led many to believe that science goes even further and can now provide all the answers to the questions we ask about the nature of the universe and the meaning of human life. It is even claimed by some that in doing this it has either taken God’s place or shown that he does not exist.

The Christian faith is not a philosophy or a set of religious rules and regulations. Instead, it is centered on the life of a man who lived more than 2,000 years ago. His name is Jesus Christ, and his birth, character, life, death define what the Christian faith is all about.
Why is this the case? What makes him unique? Why do Christians claim that all other religions fail to meet man’s deepest needs, and that Jesus is our only hope of discovering the true meaning of life in this world?

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
