"The Story" by Randy Frazee

God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about - the story of the Bible, God's great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accessible text of the NIV Bible, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel. And like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption - and this story's true!

"The Walk" by Stephen Smallman

The Walk is a book written to those who have an expressed desire to follow Christ as his disciple. It assumes no prior understanding of what that means, nor does it assume that the person has actually come to a point of professing faith. It uses as a starting point a Roman pagan who is newly converted and wondering, "what next?" but also regularly addresses those who have grown up "Christian" and may take for granted the realities that would be new to a recent convert.

"Christianity For People Who Aren't Christians" by James Emery White

This book answers both classic and bleeding-edge questions that skeptics have about the faith, such as:
- Why do the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus matter?
- Why is there so much suffering in the world?
- Why do Christians think there is only one way to know God?
- How do I reconcile the Bible's picture of Christ's followers with the actual Christians I know who have disappointed me?

- And more.

"Confronting Jesus" by Rebecca Mclaughlin

This book shares important biblical context to help all readers see why the Gospels should be taken seriously as historical documents. Exploring eyewitness testimony about Jesus, McLaughlin points to him as a first-century Jewish man who is the Son of God, King of the Jews, mighty healer, greatest teacher, lover of sinners, suffering servant, perfect sacrifice, and universal Lord.

"Sacred Chaos: Spiritual Disciplines for the Life You Have" by Tricia McCary Rhodes

"The Jesus Storybook Bible" by Sally Lloyd-Jones

This book tells that Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. From Noah to Moses to the great King David, every story points to a Child. The one upon whom everything would depend… There are lots of stories in the Bible. But all the stories are telling one big story. The story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them. The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to discover for themselves the one who is at the center of God’s great rescue story — and at the center of their story, too. Because the Bible isn’t a book of rules. Or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a story. And at the center of that story is a baby. And every single story in the Bible whispers his name.
