Welcome to Indian Hills Baptist Church!

There's a lot out there, and some of it (even the popular stuff) isn't good for you. Here's a list of books you can trust - healthy food for your soul!

For Families:

3 in 1: A Picture of God, written by Joanne Marxhausen, pictures by Ben Marxhausen and Ed Koehler (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House)

The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name, written by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Jago (ZonderKidz, 2007).

The Ology: Ancient Truths, Ever New, written by Marty Machowski, illustrated by Andy McGuire (New Growth Press, 2015).

The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden, written by Kevin DeYoung, illustrated by Don Clark (Crossway, 2015). Get the book and the movie!

Christian Growth:

Devoted to God: Blueprints for Sanctification, by Sinclair B. Ferguson (The Banner of Truth Trust, 2016)

Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God, by Timothy Keller (Dutton, 2014)

Communion with God: Fellowship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, by John Owen (Christian Focus Publications, 2007). First published in 1657, this edition modernizes the English and adapts Owen's format and writing to make it more "user friendly" for today's reader.

Who Shall Ascend the Mountain of the Lord?, by L. Michael Morales (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity, 2015).

Gospel Fluency: Speaking the Truths of Jesus into the Everyday Stuff of Life, by Jeff Vanderstelt (Crossway, 2017)


From where do you buy your books? Good stewardship means doing what you can to insure the money you use to buy resources isn't taken and used for non-Kingdom purposes. Consider book sellers who are both Christian and discerning in their inventory, like Westminster Bookstore or Grace & Truth Books.

Good online resources for spiritual growth can be found at Monergism or Reformed Forum.

As far as news goes, check out the Baptist Press, The Aquila Report, or The Baptist New Mexican.

Be discerning, saints!
