The Grace Church Library

The holidays are a great time to kick back and read a good book. The good news is that we have a library full of good books at Grace for you to borrow! Why not stop by the Grace Church Library (in the church foyer) this Sunday , and pick up some good holiday reading.

All books are available for a two-week loan. Simply write the title of the book you’re borrowing, along with your details, in the borrowing book.

We regularly post up reviews of some of our books. However, here are a few you may want to check out. (Clicking the images will take you to if you want to buy your own copies of these great books.)


Gospel-Centred Family: Becoming the Parents God Wants You To Beby Tim Chester and Ed Moll © 2009, The Good Book Company

This short book challenges parents to give up their ‘respectable’, middle-class family idols, and instead grow into real Christian families who know and love God, who serve others, and and who have a real passion for showing Jesus Christ to the surrounding world.


Is God Anti-Gay?by Sam Allberry, © 2013, The Good Book Company

A hot topic in our society today, Sam Allberry takes us on a Biblical and personal survey of what the Bible really says about marriage and same-sex attraction, how those who struggle with it can trust in a great God, and how those who don’t struggle can be a support and encouragement to those who do. Sam also tackles some of the typical questions people ask about these issues.


Just Do Somethingby Kevin DeYoung, © 2009, Moody Publishers

Christians often ask the question, “What is the Lord’s will for my life?”. DeYoung answers this question clearly and Biblically, giving sound advice for God-honouring decision-making.

The secret to it all is realising that God has already revelled his entire plan for our lives…


The Roots of Enduranceby John Piper, © 2002, Desiring God Foundation

Stories of Christians who have gone before can inspire us, and teach us a great deal about God. This book by John Piper contains three short biographies of Christians who found invincible perseverance in Christ: hymn-writer John Newton, church pastor Charles Simeon, and political William Wilberforce.



Battles Christians Faceby Vaughan Roberts, © 2007/2013, Authentic Media

Jesus promised that the Christian life, however blessed, wouldn’t be easy. This book takes a frank look at some of the real challenges of the Christian life, such as self-image, depression and homosexuality, and offers Biblical hope and encouragement for facing these battles.



We hope these whet your appetite to get into some good holiday reading from the Grace Church Library. Remember, don’t just read to know, read to grow!
