Small Group Book Studies

Book Studies can be an excellent option for small groups to really dive in to a particular topic.  Some of these books have discussion questions included and some may require that you create your own questions for discussion.  The books in the list below have all been recommended by CBC leaders.  If you have any questions about these books or need assistance, please reach out to Britt Ousley. If you would like to recommend a book, you can do so on this form.
