  • echo: Unbroken truth. worth repreating. again.

    Jonathan Fisk takes Luther's Small Catechism and explains it an imaginative way that brings the basics of Christianity to life. It's even got pictures! This is a great resource for both the new Christian to learn the basics or old Christians to hear the old truths in a new way. 

  • Did the resurrection happen? 

    The resurrection of Jesus is the centerpiece to all Christian theology. If it happened, Christianity is the only true religion and Jesus is the only true God. If not, Christianity is foolishness. So, did it happened? Leading scholar Gary Habermas and former atheist scholar Antony Flew work together to show that the historical evidence points of the historical certainty of the resurrection of Jesus.

  • The Large Catechism of Martin Luther

    The Large Catechism is a short commentary on the basics of Christianity by Martin Luther. Think of it as the old school version of Jonathan Fisk's ECHO. If you're a Christian and you haven't read Martin Luther, you're missing out. Even if you don't totally agree with him, he's brilliant and his lively and personal way of writing makes him relatable even 500 years later.

  • Prepared to answer, Vols. 1 & 2

    Dr. Mark Paustian takes the questions a skeptic might ask of the Christian and answers them simply and beautifully, with a constant focus on the gospel. These are great resources for those who are interested in becoming more familiar with apologetic answers for the faith.

  • Counterfeit Gods

    Dr. Timothy Keller examines the things that we put our fear, love, and trust upon other than Jesus. While we might never call these things "religion," they behave exactly like religion. Therefore, we are in danger of worshiping these things rather than God. Learn how to identify them and see how Jesus is superior to all of them as your saviour.

  • Without flesh

    Jonathan Fisk explains the centrality of the Lord's Supper in the life of the Church. Without an orthodox understanding of the Lord's Supper, the Church is on a fast track to demise because they have lost Jesus. They may say the have Jesus, they may talk about Jesus, but without him in the flesh, who can be saved? If you want to know why our congregation loves the Lord's Supper so much, read this book.
