Christmas Reading from the Center!

At the seminary we are coming to a break in the semester. We’ve started replacing Hebrew vocabulary with Christmas carols, we’ve written our final papers and are putting the final hours into studying for that last exam- but then what? Students will put their books on a shelf and spend time with family near and far, they’ll celebrate Christ coming and dwelling among us and remember the reason for the season. When the hustle and bustle is over and you’re waiting for classes to start again, don’t waist this precious time. The Center for Great Commission Studies has shared what they’re reading currently and what is on their to-read lists. We’d like to share this with you and encourage you to read for fun on your break!
