Summer Read

This summer, we are inviting all the members of Southshore to read one or two books as a way to reignite our passion for the gospel and help us to strive to seek first the kingdom of God.

Summer Read Sermons

We also encourage you to take time to listen to these corresponding sermons.

Radical

If you read only one book this summer, we hope it will be Radical, by David Platt.

Radical 352 x 509

We have selected this book because it identifies a real blindspot for Christians who are caught up in the [North] American Dream.

What seems radical to us at first, turns out to be the biblical basics of Jesus Christ's call to discipleship. 

Don't Waste Your Life

If you are a reader, we invite you to read a second book: Don't Waste Your Life, by John Piper.

Don't Waste your Life 352 x 509

We have selected this book, written on the same theme as Radical, to fortify the same ideas put forward by David Platt in the first book.

We are confident that a careful, prayerful, read of these two books will change your understanding and practice of the Christian faith.

Read with Us!

In short, we hope to motivate one another to consider our lives, refocus our commitment to Christ and His kingdom, and make serious, sustainable, structural changes to our lives so that we do not waste them.

We will gather mid-summer to discuss Radical together. We hope you will join us!
