Books, Podcasts, and Online Resources for developing a well-rounded Christian worldview.
As Christians, we should know what we believe, why we believe, and how to share it (Col 1:10; 4:5-6; 2 Tim 2:15; 2 Peter 3:15-16, 18; Eph 4:11-16). These resources will help you know how to read and understand the Bible, grow in your understanding of the Christian faith, and share the gospel. They should only supplement, not replace, your commitment and service to the local church.
