Recommended Resources from David Robertson

David Robertson has provided some really helpful resources for us to share the gospel in the St Thomas' bulletin letter. We decided to bring them all together in one place for you here.

Book Recommendation: The Cross of Christ by John Stott

'The universal symbol of the Christian faith is neither a crib nor a manger, but a gruesome cross. Yet many people are unclear about its meaning, and cannot understand why Christ had to die. In this magisterial and best-selling book, John Stott explains the significance of Christ's cross and answers the objections commonly brought against biblical teaching on the atonement. John Stott's modern classic is as sharp and pertinent as ever it was. It combines an excellent biblical exposition, and a characteristically thoughtful study of Christian belief, with a searching call to the church to live under the cross.'

How Atheism’s Failures Led Influential Professor, Dr. Sarah Irving-Stonebraker, To Christ

Book Recommendation: Miracles by C.S. Lewis
