Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense

During May and June, we are studying the book Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense, by N.T. Wright. You are encouraged, if you like, to read along with the lessons. The book is a fresh presentation of the timeless truths of Christianity. Wright makes the case that faith is reasonable and rewarding for us today, and leaves believers with a reason for renewed faith. The series continues with:

  • June 6 – Bob Fletcher (worship, prayer, scripture)
  • June 20 – Sally and Bob – Church and New Creation
