South American readers also enjoy The Wycliffe Bible Commentary, Worship: The Ultimate Priority by John MacArthur, and Screens and Teens by Kathy Koch.
Our Brazilian partner gives us these recommendations from the southern hemisphere:
- The Lies People Believe series [from Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth] is very popular in Brazil. We often see our readers sharing about how much they appreciate the books as they study them in small groups, in discipleship meetings, and with their children. The series is a great resource for the Brazilian church.
- William Lane Craig is highly respected and admired in Brazil when it comes to top-notch apologetics, and his title A Reasonable Response continues to be used throughout Sunday schools, seminaries, and small groups to strengthen people’s knowledge of apologetics.
- The book The Surprising Grace of Disappointment [by longtime Moody professor John Koessler] was very impactful over the course of this past year, when so many people’s plans were frustrated and put on hold. Many people lost loved ones, lost their jobs, fell into financial difficulties—all things that can cause people to doubt God’s goodness and work. Koessler’s wonderful book addresses each of those issues and brings the readers back from a sense of confusion to understand that the Lord is working and much can be learned from difficult times like that.
