We will always be students of Jesus, so whether it’s a book, podcast, or website – there are many resources that can give you further insight into his teachings and enjoying time with him.
Below you will find resources chosen specifically for where you are on your journey with Jesus. All of the books (except for the commentary series) can also be found in our Pathways Center next to the café. Feel free to stop by the Pathways Center next time you are on campus and we will help you find what you need.
