Let There Be Wonder – Matt Redman CD £12.99
New album from Matt Redman, he says of the album “Worship songs will never be able to paint the full picture of God’s glory, but it’s so important that we aim high and give our best effort to conveying Him as fully as we can. When we do this, it’s much more honouring to God and it’s much more helpful to us. My hope and prayer for this new record is that we’d find ourselves caught up in the life-giving worship of the true and living God. Let there be wonder!”
Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World
What fuels Bob Goff’s impact? It’s Love. But not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings, Bob’s love takes action!
Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob’s life and attitude might just inspire YOU to be secretly incredible too.
Love Does will push you to refocus your life and energy on what is most significant and become part of what God can do with your potential.
Disappointment with God
In this book Philip Yancey poses 3 questions that Christians often wrestle with:
- Is God fair?
- Is God silent?
- Is God hidden
This insightful and deeply personal book points to the odd disparity between our concept of God and the realities of life.
Why does God seem so distant sometimes?
If He cares for us, why do bad things happen?
Yancey answers these questions with biblical assurance that takes us beyond the things that make for despair and disillusionment.
