It might be your relaxing hobby or it might be your Spiritual Discipline – but reading is a great way to invest in our walk with God.
We know choosing books can be tricky when time and resources are limited. To help you narrow it down, we’ve selected eight books that we love (four for adults and four for younger readers). These are based in our 2023 theme of exploring life in the upside-down Kingdom, finding that Jesus turns our expectations around. They’re great to keep or give away.
You could buy a few copies of Flipped and study them with friends as part of the Big Church Read. https://thebigchurchread.co.uk/flipped/
