In an effort to create more shared resources between our groups, we’ve come up with a FinD Bookshelf. Below is a list of books that have been used and deemed “worthy” of recommending by your fellow small groups. If there are other books, videos or studies that should be on here that your group has really loved, please let us know.

Please keep in mind that this list does NOT include the greatest and most important book of all time – The Living Word of God – The Bible. Reverence for its “alone at the top” status resulted in it not even being included in the list below because it’s the obvious forerunner.


So, here you go…
