The Divine Drama

The Divine Drama
If you're looking for a simple overview of how it all fits together, then this is for you.More Info...

Faith and action

Faith and action
At the beginning of the twenty-first century we are facing unprecedented ethical challenges. One would expect that Christians who accept the Bible as their sole and sufficient authority would be bold and clear in responding to these challenges, but all too often there is a reluctance to speak out. Dr Peter Saunders explains why. He discusses the heresies which compromise the biblical call to obedience.

The Cross

The Cross

The Cross stands at the heart of the Christian faith. There Christ bore the penalty for our sins. He defeated Satan, he set the ultimate example of how to love others, and he brings us with him through death to newness of life. Like the pieces of a jigsaw, these aspects of Christ's work fit together to form a single glorious picture.

In this punchy little book, Sach and Jeffery explore each element in turn, uncovering biblical themes that are sometimes neglected. We are brought face to face with the glory of the cross.

Andrew Sach is a minister at St Helen's, Bishopsgate in the City of London.
Steve Jeffery is minister of Emmanuel Evangelical Church in Southgate, North London.

One to one bible reading

One to one bible reading

One-to-one Bible reading is vital for effective and vibrant gospel ministry. This simple guide to an essential ministry is a magnificent resource that will be useful for training all Christians in ministry. There is little else like it. We shall use it extensively at St Helen's.
William Taylor (Rector at St Helen's Bishopsgate in London)

Helm's booklet encourages relational evangelism and discipleship based on the living and active world of God, offering practical tools for one-on-one Bible reading and envisioning a mobilization of God's people that would complement church programs. Helm calls us to invite people not only to an event, but into our lives and into the life of faith in Jesus Christ offered in his word.
Kathleen Nielson (Author and conference speaker)

David Helm is deeply committed to the public exposition of God's word and the training of preachers. Yet in this guide he advocates a deep-rooted culture of one-to-one Buble eading in our churches. Surely the two go hand in hand, but many Christians don't know where to start in this personal Bible reading ministry. This guide provides the inspiration for this desperately needed ministry revolution and the growth of the gospel vine into every corner of our communities.
Colin Marshall (Author of 'The Trellis and the Vine' and CEO of Vinegrowers.

David Helm is a pastor at Holy Trinity Church in Chicago, and Chairman of The Charles Simeon Trust, a ministry devoted to equipping expository preachers. He longs for all Christians to read God's word for themselves and with others.

Here is one of the most lively, readable and stimulating to appear.'
Jeremy Begbie, Thomas A. Langford Research Professor at Duke Divinity School, Duke University.

Social media and the gospel

In just a few years, Facebook has gone from nothing to a major feature of modern life. there are over 500 million users, half of whom use it on any given day.

There is much that is good about this... social networking brings many benefits... but what about the dangers? Image, identity, idolatry and self-promotion are just some of the challenges that social networking can present. Dr Tim Chester looks at these issues pastorally and biblically, in his usual clear and candid manner. He asks pertinent questions to help us tackle them head on.

Dr Tim Chester is an author and church planter.

Christian Beliefs

Christian Beliefs

The condensed version of the much larger Systematic Theology, this is definitely a 'must-read' as it covers the ground work of what it means to be a Christian. It touches all the big and sometimes hard-to-grasp topics, like election and justification, in a very readable way. It's not all you need to know, but an opening into discovering more about what the Bible teaches. Each of the 20 chapters deals with a different topic, always based on the Bible. One of the book's most helpful aspects is that each chapter ends with some questions to ponder, which really helps to solidify what you've read. It is useful both for new Christians and for those not so new, as it covers areas we sometimes don't engage with; with chapters on the final judgment, or angels and demons. It is even a means to engage with friends who are interested in finding out more about Christianity.

Cross-examined

Cross-examined

Exploring the issues of humanity's sin, the cross and the resurrection, this book helps us understand God's ultimate plan and fall more in love with the resurrected Christ. In eleven concise chapters, Mark Maynell discusses important theological points accessibly and relevantly, with references from history, poetry and literature. Issues such as the wrath of God and terms such as 'substitutionary atonement' become incentives for praise rather than confusion. Readers are encouraged to keep the Bible as the central text, ensuring the main points are heard loud and clear. There is a study guide for each chapter and I'd whole-heartedly recommend this book for discipleship or small-group material. Cross-examined is an excellent read for busy medical students who want to delve deeper into the meaning of the cross, as well as for those who may be confused or who struggle to explain it to others. If there is one book to read on the subject while at medical school, this should be it!

God's Big Picture

God's Big Picture

In this overview, Vaughan Roberts takes us on a journey through the Bible, tracing the theme of the Kingdom of God. Don't expect to get away with just a brief glimpse into God's word - each chapter ends with the Bible study which proved an excellent prompt for personal study and reflection. This book is not a substitute for seeking God's purposes and discovering more about his character in the Bible for yourself, but it is a very useful tool. 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that 'All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness' - all Scripture. God's Big Picture encourages us to seek Christ throughout the scriptures by opening up passages that might seem difficult to understand. Vaughan Roberts wants us to understand the Bible in its entirety better, but above all to fall deeper in love with Christ.
