BOOK OF THE MONTH
"God is" by Mark Jones is the August book of the month! This book is a devotional guide to the attributes of God. This devotional book takes the time to work through attributes like God is triune, he is spirit, he is infinite and eternal and so many more. He breaks them up into a few pages with scripture to walk us through each! If you are interested in this book or any of our others, be sure to check out the bookshelf.
