Summer Reading Suggestions

Summer is a fantastic time to grab a good Christian book and get reading.

  • Some of us get to go on holiday where we have more time to read, free from the daily routine
  • We have longer, lighter evenings to read outside
  • Growth groups have a break over the summer

So what’s new and what should you choose?
Well, here are 6 suggestions covering all ages.
