STORY BEARER – PHIL KNOX –  £9.99

Most people find faith because they know another Christian, see the difference Jesus makes, and hear their story. Yet most of us are reluctant faith sharers. This book inspires every Christian to see themselves as a story bearer. Four distinct stories collide in great evangelism: God’s story, our story, the story of our friends and the story of our culture. The book expounds them all, encouraging us to learn and tell well the first two and listen and react well to the others. Phil Knox punctuates his book with engaging accounts of success and failure. Story bearing has the potential to change the world of those around you.

THE MEANING OF MARRIAGE – TIMOTHY KELLER – £9.99

In previous books respected New York pastor and bestselling author Timothy Keller has looked at such diverse and topical subjects as the existence of God, our need to do justice, the meaning of Jesus’ life, and the human temptation to make idols – all through the twin lenses of a biblical framework and an engagement with contemporary culture. In this new book, co-authored with his wife, Kathy, he turns his attention to that most complex of matters: our need for love, and its expression in marriage. Beginning with the biblical narrative, and its pictures of marriage that span the original ideal to the broken to the redemptive, he looks at themes of friendship and commitment; the completion of men and women in each other; singleness, sex and divorce; and ministry and discipleship within the context of marriage. This is a profound and engaging work that will challenge and inspire people in all stages of life – single, newlywed and married.

Eight volumes have been brought into one compact and easy to use guide to cover both the Old and the New testaments in one massive omnibus edition. Old Testament: • The Maker’s Instructions The five books of law • A Land and A Kingdom Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1&2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings • Poems of Worship and Wisdom Psalms, Song of Solomon, proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Job • Decline and Fall of an Empire Isaiah, Jeremiah and other prophets • The Struggle to Survive Chronicles and prophets of exile New Testament: • The Hinge of History Mathew, Mark, Luke, John and acts • The Thirteenth Apostle Paul and his letters • Through Suffering to Glory Revelation, Hebrews, and the letters of James, Peter and Jude

BEYOND OPINION – RAVI ZACHARIAS – £10.99

Respected apologist Ravi Zacharias was once sharing his faith with a Hindu when the man asked: ‘If the Christian faith is truly supernatural, why is it not more evident in the lives of so many Christians I know?’ The question hit hard, and this book is an answer. Its purpose is to equip Christians everywhere to simultaneously defend the faith and be transformed by it into people of compassion.
