Books

We're a little bit book-crazy at Disciples Church. That's because books are an extremely valuable resource. By developing a pro-active reading life, you will open yourself up to a whole new world of discovery and learning that will be far more valuable than watching the latest game-show on television.

Apart from reading God's Word, the Bible (which we recommend doing every day - not all of it, just a chapter or two maybe), there are many books available that will help you understand better how to live for and follow Jesus in every area of your life.

When you come to Disciples Church, you'll find a bookstall loaded up with a selection of books you might like to buy. We get these books on consignment from Reformers Bookshop. You can also visit their website www.reformers.com.au if you'd like to place an order directly. We also hope to develop a church library of books. Over time, we will add to this library and make the books available to people to borrow.

Below, we've categorised and listed a number of book titles. These are books that we'd be happy to recommend as a useful resource for you. We'll start with a few and add more in the future.

Happy reading!
