Sovereign God: A Study of Esther

The Imperfect Disciple

Men’s Book Study

Too many discipleship books are written for perfect people who know all the right Sunday school answers. This book is for the rest of us—people who screw up, people who are weary, people who are wondering if it's safe to say what they're really thinking. With incisive wit, warm humor, and moving stories, Jared Wilson shows us how the gospel actually works through us and in us, even when we can't get our act together.
