We want to see urban church planters thoroughly equipped for Gospel ministry. This means having access to good reading material. The aim of this page is to bring together a list of useful theological and pastoral resources. This will include links to free online resources including websites, blogs, e-books and journals. It will also include links to where you can source good books – although this will be to purchase rather than to borrow, we will try to find the best prices for you.
Please get in touch with recommendations and sources.
Nb. Inclusion here does not necessarily count as endorsement of or agreement with the views of an author or content of a source cited. There are occasions when it is helpful for pastors to be acquainted with the views of others.
