£10.99 - While singleness is often widely misunderstood by many in the church today and often viewed in negative terms, the Bible speaks about it very differently. This book sets forth a positive vision of singleness by responding to 7 common misconceptions, such as the notion that singleness is too hard, requires a special spiritual gift, is a hindrance to ministry, or is a waste of sexuality. Addressed to the church as a whole and written by single pastor, Sam Allberry, 7 Myths about Singleness will help readers better understand, support, and empower the singles around them to contribute to the flourishing of the church as a whole.
£3.99 - A key current issue. Christians, the church and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality. And there is growing hostility towards those who hold a different view. So is God homophobic? And what do we say, and how do we relate to to both Christians and non Christians who experience same-sex attraction. In this short, simple book, Sam Allberry wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions.

James is a book full of practical, life-changing help for real life.

£3.99 - The church has an image problem. It is widely viewed in the world at large as being outdated, boring, irrelevant and filled with backbiting hypocrites. How different that picture is to how the Bible talks about the new family that Jesus has gathered. It is a precious bride, a sparkling jewel, a lifeboat for forgiven sinners that is precious and holy; nurturing and warm; filled with truth, friendship and all embracing, forgiving love. Sam Allberry understands the collision between these two views, and how, even as Christian believers, we can lose sight of how truly wonderful church is and should be, and what a privilege it is to be part of, and to serve. In this brief accessible but thorough guide to church, Sam outlines what church is and why we need it. And how, when we have got it wrong, we can move closer to what a true church should be.
£19.95 - Life can be hard, and sometimes it seems like God doesn’t even care. When faced with difficult trials, many people have resonated with the book of Job—the story of a man who lost nearly everything, seemingly abandoned by God. In this thorough and accessible commentary, Christopher Ash helps us glean encouragement from God’s Word by directing our attention to the final explanation and ultimate resolution of Job’s story: the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Intended to equip pastors to preach Job’s important message, this commentary highlights God’s grace and wisdom in the midst of redemptive suffering. Taking a staggeringly honest look at our broken world and the trials that we often face, Ash helps us see God’s sovereign purposes for adversity and the wonderful hope that Christians have in Christ.
£1 - A practical guide to listening to sermons In this short and practical guide, Christopher Ash outlines seven ingredients for healthy listening.
£7 - Why does a good God allow innocent suffering? Why does a just God act unfairly? Why does a sovereign God let disease and evil run rampant? These are not questions asked from the onlooker's armchair, nor from the academic's desk, but from the anguish of the sickbed and the frustration of the wheelchair. Christopher Ash leads us through the biblical story of Job as we wrestle with these questions today. He honestly explores the lonely and cruel nature of suffering and whether God can be found in the midst of it. He exposes the shortcomings of Job's friends who deny the possibility of innocent suffering and are unaware of the roles that Satan, the fall and the cross have to play. With compassion and clarity he takes the readers through Job's long debate with God - towards a humbling and hopeful resolution.
£8.99 - From Text to Message: The Psalms can be sung, spoken or read – but they were written to be prayed. Until we pray them from the heart we miss their purpose. The two volumes of Teaching Psalms aim to get the reader’s heart engaging with this beautiful book of the Bible. If you love, or want to love, or think perhaps you ought to love the Psalms, these volumes are for you. Volume 2 picks up on the groundwork laid and begins with an overview of the structure of the Psalter. It then goes through the book of Psalms, giving an introduction to each one. It does not seek to compete with a commentary in that it does not approach each verse individually; however it offers what few commentaries attempt – a careful look at the message behind the book as a whole.
£5.99 - What do you think about your pastor? Do you chew over his sermons and wonder if they are clear and helpful? Do you feel he spends enough time with you? In fact, do you ever catch yourself wondering what he does all day? The truth is, often we think, "What can my pastor do for me?" Far less often do we think, "What can I do for my pastor?" Former seasoned pastor, Christopher Ash, urges church members to think about pastors not just in terms of what they do – how they lead and pray and preach and teach and so on – but what about who they are. He encourages us to remember that pastors are people and to pray for them as they serve us. Paradoxically, caring for our pastor will be a blessing to us as well as to them, and create a culture of true fellowship in our church family.
£3.99 - This is a warm, pastorally hearted guide to the Bible's teaching on God's sovereignty. When a disaster happens; when personal tragedy strikes; when we are perplexed by world events, Christians can begin to doubt that God is either truly good, or truly in control. Christopher Ash faces these questions head on, without flinching at any of the difficulties. First he looks at six different ways people have answered this question — both as Christians and from other religions and none. He then reveals the Bible's answer: the revelation of God's character and purposes throughout history.
£7.99 - Lots of people who are involved in Christian ministry (whether paid or unpaid) find themselves having to step back from it. They have not lost their love for Christ, or their desire to serve him. But for one reason or another, they are exhausted and simply cannot carry on. Christopher Ash knows this experience all too well. As a pastor of a growing church, and then in his role training people for ministry, he has found himself on the edge of burnout a number of times, and has pastored many younger ministers who have reached the end of their tether. His wisdom has been distilled into this short, accessible book, in which he reveals a neglected biblical truth and seven keys that flow from it. This practical and biblical guidance will help enthusiastic Christians gain the mindset and lifestyle to protect themselves from burnout and serve Jesus for the long term in a sustainable way.

The second part of the book of Isaiah rings with proclamations and prophecies that find their fulfilment in the Gospels and are still being fulfilled by followers of Jesus today.

At the same time, this book helps you to see the connections between Isaiah's time and ours, and how his vision of God's truth and justice spreading throughout the world can comfort, challenge and inspire God's people now, just as it did back then.

£4.99 - In the midst of bad news, can there be any hope? The story of Ruth takes place when the Israelites are living in the Promised Land. But instead of obeying God, they are rebelling against his rule. When they cry for deliverance, God sends them a judge. The judge dies, and the people become even more corrupt than their ancestors. Brutality and immorality abound. We focus on an ordinary woman called Naomi and her family. We witness her joys and her sorrows, but more importantly, God's amazing providence in her situation. The book of Ruth is written into a whirl of social, religious, and moral chaos. It is a reminder that there is hope, that a remnant of true faith remains and the God continues to work in the lives of ordinary people. The book points forward to King David who would lead the people wisely. But ultimately it points to Jesus, the great Son of David - the hope of the nations, the light of the world and the prince of peace.

Focusing on the simple truth of God’s Word, this real, honest life-story invites us to take a deep breath, look ahead and begin to live every day to the full
£7 - The strength of Puritan character and life lay in prayer and meditation. In this practice the spirit of prayer was regarded as of first importance and the best form of prayer, for living prayer is the characteristic of genuine spirituality. Yet prayer is also vocal and may therefore on occasions be written. Consequently in the Puritan tradition there are many written prayers and meditations which constitute an important corpus of inspiring devotional literature. Too often extempore prayer lacks variety, order and definiteness. The reason for this lies partly in a neglect of due preparation. It is here that the care and scriptural thoroughness which others found necessary in their approach to God may be of help. This book has been prepared not to ‘supply’ prayers but to prompt and encourage the Christian as he treads the path on which others have gone before.
£8.99 - There are many books on parenting by self-appointed experts who give us a bucketful of sugar to help the medicine go down. Ann Benton's parenting book is different.

It is a gritty, real, honest, and above all truthful book which points us to the best parent of all - Our Father God.

£3.49 - Each of these 30 days of readings includes an action point and explores how King David in the Bible discovered authentic prayer through the good times, the bad times and the even the ugly times. Fears, doubts, questions, plans, hopes and dreams… even frustrations, epic failures and glorious wins can be used as prayers. God wants to hear about this stuff because it’s us and our lives – its real and He loves that. This book will help men discover a life of prayer – using the example of the Psalms in expressing the stuff that really matters.
£1.99 - For millions today a cross has become little more than a charm or good luck bracelet, tattooed on their bodies or worn as jewellery. The huge gap between the original event and the current symbol therefore raises some massive questions: - Why has the symbol remained so universally popular? - Was there anything unique about the crucifixion of Jesus? - Why was he put to death? - What difference can it make to me today? Here is a booklet that answers all these questions – and many more – and makes it crystal clear that in the death of Jesus lies our only hope of the forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
£6.99 - Jo Boddam-Whetham has written this book to get you into another book - the Bible. She aims to challenge and equip you to develop a regular, individual time of reading God's Word and praying. When you let God in his Word and his wisdom steer you in the right direction and help you to make the right choices. Reading God's Word and praying to him are an essential part of receiving God's input and ensuring the right output from your life. To know that God loves you and that there is nothing more that you can do to make him love you more than he does already - that's great. Reading the Bible and praying is not about making God love you more - it's about feeding and watering your soul so that your love for God grows and spills over, impacting your life and your world.
£4.99 - Beginning with Genesis, the Bible is the story of God pursuing his people. In this study guide, you'll explore how God reaches out--through Jesus and through human ambassadors like us. You'll discover that the call to "missions" is not for a select group but is a part of God's call to every Christian. And you'll begin to understand your own part in God's plan. This LifeBuilder Bible Study features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection.
£4.99 - Putting Jesus in his place. This was the issue with which the church at Colossae wrestled. There was a plethora of other gods and spiritual beings to worship. The city was rife with syncretism, the belief that you can worship Jesus but need to supplement your faith by turning to other powers and authorities. If you got sick or wanted your business to flourish, surely it was expedient to pay allegiance to these other powers and not just Jesus? In Colossae Jesus was eminent. He had status. The fundamental question was: Is he pre-eminent? Jesus was important, just not all-important; adequate but not totally sufficient for every need. Writing from a prison cell in Rome, Paul warns these new believers of the danger of turning to another Jesus. If they failed to heed his warning, their faith would unravel. This letter has much to say to Christians today. It will provide challenge, inspiration and a renewed focus to keep on living for Christ in our generation.
£17.99 - Matthew, Mark, Luke, John—we refer to these New Testament books as the Gospels because they share the “good news” of Jesus coming to earth to live and die for us, so we could be redeemed.

Each of the 365 meditations in Together with God: The Gospels features a short story, an inspiring thought, and a Scripture from the Gospels. This inspirational collection from trusted Our Daily Bread writers helps connect you to God each day, to thank Him for His redeeming love.

Poetic and passionate in language, and authentic about the challenges posed by change, this frank book aims to inspire and stir our appetite for passing from one life stage to another.
£4.99 - As leader of the Jerusalem church, what words of encouragement would James write to these persecuted Christians? Perhaps a little surprisingly, his key message was: faith works. Genuine belief inevitably transforms our speech, suffering, compassion for the poor, humility, prayers, priorities, and, frankly, every other aspect of life. In 5 chapters James introduces and briefly touches upon a whole variety of issues that concern the new believers. In a simple, forthright style he urges them to live out their faith, knowing that God's grace is sufficient for every trial and that there us a value and purpose to their suffering.
£2.99 - With hindsight, key moments in history that seemed momentary at the time can come to be incredibly iconic. Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to a church door in Wittenberg 500 years ago is such a moment. In Luther and the 9.5 Theses, Kenneth Brownell explains how Luther came to write the 95 Theses and why making them public was such a turning point in church history. Kenneth also encourages us to recognise that the church today faces challenges that call for a similar return to biblical truths. He draws out 9 (and a half!) key points from the 95 Theses that are crucial for us to uphold if we want to be faithful to Christ and His gospel. This is a fast paced look back at one of the defining moments of Christian history, and a challenging look ahead to show how we can stand for the truth of the Bible.

£3.49 - At a time when the first-century church had been invaded by false teachers, the apostle John knew that Christians who are not sure of God s truth can wander away, never to return. He wrote to them, not only to make them know the real truth, but to be confident of it, and to rest upon it. If then, why not today? We all urgently need to hear and obey God's loving message in this letter of John's.
£12.99 - It is common knowledge that many curacies run into difficulties and that this is something people often feel constrained from discussing openly. Curacies and How to Survive Them offers readers the opportunity to listen in on a series of fast-flowing conversations between a psychologist, a theologian and a clergy spouse, which explore frequently occurring dilemmas and challenges. Using fictionalised case studies, collated from the true stories of curates and training incumbents, the book offers principles and strategies for understanding and addressing some common issues.

'So, let's walk together!'
£7.99 - Most of us have felt the temptation to opt for a domesticated version of the gospel. We want enough to make us happy and secure, but not so much that it really affects out lives. We want ecstasy not repentance, security not selfless love and service. We may not like to admit it, but the temptation is there. It is nothing new, but perhaps it is especially strong today. Many changes in today’s society and increasing self-indulgence all put pressure on believers to water down the gospel and minimize its impact on our lives. In Basics for believers, renowned Bible teacher and scholar, Don Carson opens up the life-transforming lessons of Philippians, showing us how we can put the whole gospel first, learn to live as disciples of Christ and never give up the Christian walk.
£14.99 - Don Carson's experience as both biblical scholar and pastoral teacher combine here to give us a treatment of suffering under God's sovereignty which is outstandingly accurate, wise and helpful. He covers a wealth of biblical material with carefully reasoned clarity and umbrella-like relevance to help us prepare for whatever life may bring. The author writes, with Bible in hand, less as a philosopher than as a devout and battered pilgrim. His meditations on suffering and evil and the questions they raise and address are solid study group materials conducive to faith, joy and hope. All who follow the author's fast flowing argument will find their heads cleared and their hearts strengthened.
£7.99 - The theme of the love of God is inexhaustible, both in our experience and our theology. We will reflect on it and adore him for eternity. In today's world, however, it is a theme that has been taken for granted and treated as easily understood. Many see God in sentimental ways: he is a kind old man in the sky who wouldn't harm a fly, or an easy-going friend who gives them presents and helps them out of every difficult spot. 'God loves me,' cries one person, 'so surely he won't punish me.'' But is it really that easy? What does the Bible teach about God's love? What does it have to say about the wrath of the loving God, or about the loving God who is also sovereign Lord? In this book, Don Carson turns his attention to these vital questions.
£44.99 - In The Enduring Authority of the Christian Scriptures thirty-seven first-rate evangelical scholars present a thorough study of biblical authority and a full range of issues connected to it.

After an introduction by Carson to the many facets of the current discussion, the contributors present robust essays on relevant historical, biblical, theological, philosophical, epistemological, and comparative-religions topics. To conclude, Carson answers a number of frequently asked questions about the nature of Scripture, providing cross-references to the preceding chapters.This comprehensive volume by a team of recognized experts will be the go-to reference on the nature and authority of the Bible for years to come.
£9.99 - The Bible's storyline is grand in its sweep, beautiful in its form, and unified in its message.

£5.99 - Clear, faithful proclamation of the gospel is needed more than ever, but the pressures of the age are often causing us to withdraw.

This is not just a theory book, with useful application of bible teaching, the author excites us for what God can do through his word.

£11.5 - The Christian faith involves many different elements: a breathtaking sacrifice, an unshakable hope, a daily fight—and more. Each is critical to our salvation and essential to the shape and purpose of our daily lives. Yet some have become so familiar to us that we miss their importance . . . and others may not feel familiar at all. Pastor David Cassidy's engaging look at these essentials of the Christian faith helps us to understand their disruptive power in a dark world. We're living in an in-between time, positioned between Jesus's death on the cross and his final return. What if we caught hold of the indispensable things and held them close?

£8.99 - In the name of the Father, the Son, and ... the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church's power—the Holy Spirit.

£9.99 - God’s Church started as a radical, spiritually intimate gathering of believers that ultimately changed history. Yet millions today are content to be mere observers at church. Many more have left, brokenhearted and cynical. But God is waking up His people—people who will risk anything and sacrifice everything to be the dynamic, world-changing Church of Scripture. In Letters to the Church, Francis Chan invites readers to wrestle with the fact that many churches have drifted from God’s desire for them. He challenges Christians to ask, “What does God want for His Church?

£9.99 - Using Paul's radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into authentic Christian maturity. The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for the popular sound bites, but to paint a picture of a mature Christian faith. While many give their lives to Jesus, few then go on to live a life of truly vibrant faith. In this disruptively inspiring book, Chandler offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Because if we clean up our lives but don't get Jesus, we've lost! So let the goal be Him. To live is Christ, to die is gain—this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lived to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him—everything should be about Jesus.

In his own friendly and engaging way Chapman provides warm encouragement, insightful biblical teaching, and a wealth of practical information on evangelism.
£9.99 - The author unpacks this gripping part of Israel's history, revealing the wonderful portrait of Jesus painted there. 1 Samuel is a book of barrenness and battles, kings and schemes, shepherds and giants.

But its greatest excitement lies not in the events and characters, but in the person they all point to. 1 Samuel points us to Jesus.
£9.99 - 2 Samuel is a story of triumph and disaster, both personal and national. It is the account of the rise and fall and rise of a great king, David of Israel. But it is also the story of the God who rules his people, who forgives his people, and who promises to send the King whose greatest fall will bring our eternal rise. This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike. It is less academic than a commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotion, as well as useful for leading small group studies or sermon preparation.

Tim Chester says that we can be captured by a better vision--a liberating confidence that God offers more than pornography does. Moving beyond pat answers or mere willpower, Chester offers spiritual, practical and corporate resources for living porn free.

He explores how the Father, the Son and the Spirit relate to us in our day-to-day lives, and how to respond. As we interact more with God and understand how awesome he is, we will experience joy in our service, our witness, our sacrifices and our suffering.
£8.99 - The Father delights in his Son. This is the starting point of mission, its very core. The word 'mission' means 'sending'. But for many centuries this was only used to describe what God did, sending his Son and his Spirit into the world. World mission exists because the Father wants people to delight in his Son, and the Son wants people to delight in the Father. Tim Chester introduces us to a cascade of love: love flowing from the Father to the Son through the Spirit. And that love overflows and, through us, keeps on flowing to our Christian community and beyond, to a needy world. Mission matters. This book is for ordinary individuals willing to step out and be part of the most amazing, exciting venture in the history of the world.

This detailed exploration considers how even washing the dishes can be done to the glory of God as part of a whole life lived in sacrifice to Him. Wonderfully, this doesn't have to be a depressing or dismal thing, but can leave us marvelling again at God's goodness and grace.

£7.99 - Popular ideas about what being a Christian means don’t always help us see the full picture: 'A Christian is someone who believes in God' 'I've been christened - so I'm a Christian' 'I attend church' 'I try to lead a good life' 'A Christian is someone who's been "born again"' Many people think of themselves as Christians but aren’t quite clear what that means.

£11.99 - Charlie Cleverly points to the activities of Christians around the globe and presents evidence that 'the Holy Spirit… is pouring out a spirit of prayer in the world' and yet 'few Christians have anything but a vague idea of the power of prayer; fewer still have any experience of that power.' A Discipline of Intimacy offers teaching on this power and how it can provide greater intimacy with God. Addressing such themes as repentance and intercession Charlie Cleverly draws on biblical inspiration from Hannah Joel and Paul and places particular emphasis on coming to God in prayer not only for the individual but for the family the Church and the nations. Along with this teaching the sessions include questions for reflection as well as video introductions from the author.
£9.99 - The Song of Songs is redolent with poetic imagery, featuring as it does the love songs of a man and a woman as they explore their relationship. Down the centuries it has often been interpreted either as a sexually-charged love story or an entirely metaphorical imagining of the relationship between God and his people. In this deeply-felt book Charlie Cleverly argues that both interpretations are critical to a true understanding of this book that lies right at the heart of the Bible. If our relationships with one another and with God are not both fully in tune with our humanity, in all its richness, and with our spirituality in its highest form, then we will fall short of all we can be in our lives. Drawing on a wide range of sources, literary and theological and across the ages, Charlie Cleverly makes the case for a new, rounded understanding of this important book.

£8.99 - He Bible stands at the heart of the Christian faith, but what do we really believe about it? Does it shape the way we think and feel and act? We all have questions about it. Can we trust it completely? Does it really contain everything we need for our complicated lives? Can we really know what it teaches, or just our own interpretation of it?

Unpacking what the Bible has to say about itself, he answers important questions raised by Christians and non–Christians alike.

£12.99 - Despite wrestling with a speech impediment throughout his formative years, Nick Fawcett responded to the call to ministry, studying at Bristol and Oxford universities before spending thirteen happy years in the Baptist ministry, first in Leigh, Lancashire and then in Cheltenham, after which he went on to serve for three years as a chaplain with the national charity Toc H. While few would have dreamt he had ever struggled with speech, for Nick it was still an issue beneath the surface, prompting him eventually to explore a new form of ministry: that of the written word. He has been writing now for six years, during which time he has published numerous books reaching an audience many hundred time greater than was possible while in the pastoral ministry; this, in his own words, testimony to the way God so often moves in mysterious ways.
£7.5 - What are the most important lessons the New Testament has to teach us about being a Christian? Sinclair Ferguson shows that a deep-seated concern of the writers of the New Testament was to see Christians grow to spiritual maturity—and if that was the concern of the first believers, then it should be our concern too. In clear and logical chapters that are rooted in the reality of the Christian life, the author, who has had long experience in pastoral ministry and seminary teaching, seeks to show what Christian maturity is, and how it is to be obtained. It was the apostle Paul’s desire to present those to whom he ministered ‘mature in Christ’—for such a maturity would lead to stable, servant-hearted Christians, and healthy, fruit-bearing churches. All those who desire to live useful, mature, and consistent Christian lives will gain much wisdom from reading and reflecting upon the contents of this book.
£14.99 - Some Pastors and Teachers is a volume for every minister's study and indeed for the bookshelves and bedside tables of everyone who has a concern for the ministry of the gospel and the well-being of the church in the twenty-first century. In many ways, it reflects the biblical vision of what every minister is called to be: pastor, teacher, counsellor, and example - but also a man who is growing spiritually, both in understanding and in character, before the eyes of his congregation. In five sections and thirty-nine chapters, Sinclair B. Ferguson writes on pastor-teachers whose lives and work have left an indelible mark on his own life, and then leads us in a series of chapters on the teaching of John Calvin, John Owen and the seventeenth century Puritans. This is followed by studies of Scripture, the ministry of the Spirit, the nature of Biblical Theology, the work of Christ, adoption, the nature of the Christian life and other important doctrines. The final section discusses various aspects of preaching, including preaching Christ from the Old Testament, the importance of theology, reaching the heart, and concludes with a decalogue for preachers. All this, as the epilogue makes clear, is set within the context and goal of doxology.
£4.99 - With millions of copies in print, Foxe's Book ofMartyrs has become a classic of magnificent courage and faith. This unparalleled volume chronicles the tragic yet triumphant stories of men and women who faced torture and martyrdom rather than deny their vision of truth and of God. Beginning with Jesus Christ, this exceptional historical record traces the roots of religious persecution through the sixteenth century. It examines the heroic lives of great men and women such as John Hus, John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Anne Askew, Lady Jane Grey, and Martin Luther. John Foxe also knew persecution.

Grinton Berry to present work in today's language.
£7.99 - How am I meant to feel as a Christian? You can go to an evangelical church on a Sunday and be told: "Christian, you are loved by God, no matter what you've done. God could not love you more than he does." You can go to another evangelical church and be told: "You're a wretched sinner". The emphasis can feel very different, and yet both churches are teaching truth. Holding both truths together in balance can be tricky but it's essential for healthy Christian living. Overemphasising one at the expense of the other causes all sorts of problems. Perfect Sinners will help us keep the balance, as we distinguish between our "status" before God and our "walk" with him.

£9.99 - Both Lamentations and Ezekiel focus on the destruction of Jerusalem, an act of divine punishment for the city’s faithlessness over many years. Lamentations is caught up in the catastrophe that befalls the city, and combines grief, sorrow and pleas foor mercy in its few short chapters. Ezekiel reflects on the same events from the standpoint of those living in exile in the city of Babylon, but turns his attention to the future, offering a series of positive visions that speak of God’s plans for ultimate redemption. His prophecies are significant for the hope they offer in the wake of Jerusalem’s destruction, and for the way their vivid imagery was later taken up and used by John of Patmos in the Book of Revelation. Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament.
£4.99 - Ezekiel ben Buzi would never forget his thirtieth birthday. He had been trained as a priest and brought up to believe that at this age his life's work would begin. For years he had anticipated this moment when he would be ordained and eligible to serve in the temple. But instead of being in Jerusalem, he was a captive in Babylon. Instead of being a priest, he was called by God to be a prophet. Instead of serving in the temple, he was surrounded by a plethora of pagan gods. But on his thirtieth birthday, Ezekiel received a vision from God . . . This timely vision confronted the Jews with their sinfulness and the necessity of divine judgement. It also reminded them of God's sovereignty and the promise of future restoration. Our lives, like Ezekiel's, may have turned out differently from how we had expected they would. Can we keep on serving God in turbulent times, trusting God's sovereignty, and striving for holiness with the Holy Spirit's help and power?
£8.99 - Sometime around 56 AD, the apostle Paul wrote to the church in Rome. His letter was arguably his theological masterpiece, and has continued to shape Christian faith ever since. He entrusted this letter to Phoebe, the deacon of the church at Cenchreae; in writing to the church that almost surely met in her home, Paul refers to her both as a deacon and as a helper or patron of many. But who was this remarkable woman? In this, her first work of fiction, Biblical scholar and popular author and speaker Paula Gooder tells Phoebe’s story – who she was, the life she lived and her first-century faith – and in doing so opens up Paul’s theology, giving a sense of the cultural and historical pressures that shaped Paul’s thinking, and the faith of the early church.
£5 - Goodwin begins with the beautiful assurances given by Christ to his disciples, taking as an example of that love Christ's washing of his disciples feet.

And in particular, two things stir his compassion: our afflictions and- almost unbelievably- our sins.
