While we know that gathering as a church to worship God through his Word, song, prayer and fellowship each week is the primary way we grow as the body of Christ, there are some amazing resources available to Christians today that are relevant to our lives, our learning, and can help guide us in godly wisdom. Indian Trail Church is pleased to recommend great books that enhance what we are learning from the pulpit on Sunday mornings.
If you would like to purchase one of these resources through Indian Trail Church at a discounted price, please contact Laura Dobratz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our stock is limited, so orders will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
Here are some recommendations that go with our current Sunday morning sermon series:
PARENTING: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family
by Paul David Tripp
In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God―grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
Shepherding a Child's Heart
by Tedd Tripp
Written for parents with children of any age, this insightful book provides perspectives and procedures for shepherding your child's heart into the paths of life. Shepherding a Child's Heart gives fresh biblical approaches to child rearing.
by William P. Farley
"How can I hope to be an effective parent today when attack on the family are stronger than ever before?” The answer, says Farley, is the gospel. Parents who claim the gospel as their own have an enormous effect on their marriage, their integrity, and their love for their children. Keeping the gospel at the forefront of every aspect of marriage helps parents fear God, sensitizes them to sin, motivates them to enter their children's world, and causes them to preach the beauty of the gospel to their children through their marriage.
