Rooted in Christ meets in small groups throughout the week to read and discuss Christian books. We believe that reading the Bible alongside good Christian books is a sure way to grow as a disciple of Christ. During term time we meet each week over tea and coffee or a meal to catch up, discuss a chapter of a book, and pray together.
This Term – God’s Big Picture
This term we will be reading God’s Big Picture by Vaughan Roberts. We will be starting the book groups at the beginning of October.
“Sixty-six books written by 40 people over nearly 2000 years, in two languages and several different genres. A worldwide bestseller published in countless sizes and bindings, translations and languages. It has been sworn by in court, fought over by religious people, quoted in arguments. The Bible is clearly no ordinary book. How can we begin to read and understand it as a whole?
In his excellent overview, Vaughan Roberts gives the big picture – showing how the different parts of the Bible fit together under the theme of the kingdom of God. He gives us both the encouragement and the tools to read it with confidence and understanding. He points us to the Bible’s supreme subject, Jesus Christ, and the salvation God offers through him.”
What Students Say:
“Looking back over my time at University I can say with certainty that meeting with other Christians for Book Groups was vital in encouraging me to live for Christ and deepening my faith in Him.”
