The Doctor's Life of Faith
'Am I what I wanted to be?'|
'Am I on the right track?'
'What's life all about anyway?'
When life is hard or our plans run into the ground, these questions quickly arise. But perhaps these are the wrong questions. We should be asking, 'Am I the sort of person God intended me to be?'' 'what is God's intention for my life?'
The Doctor's Life of Faith opens up the Bible's story to reveal not only God's plan for your life, but his eternal master plan for his people. At the heart of God's plan for the world is his intention of making sinful men and women more and more like Jesus.
Janet Goodall draws on her experience as a paediatrician in the UK and Africa to show how this life-transforming plan will spur you on to live a life that is pleasing to God. She shows that though we will face many trials along the way, the glorious result will be worth it.More Info...
Right to die?
The case for assisted suicide seems to compelling. Surely it can't be wrong to help desperate people to kill themselves. Don't we have a right to take our own lives - in certain circumstances?
John Wyatt helps us to navigate the arguments with hearts and heads engaged, and above all with our Bibles open. There are practical and compassionate alternatives to assisted suicide, and as many who have gone before us have found, the end of our lives on this earth may turn out to be a strange and wonderful opportunity for growth and internal healing.
John Wyatt is Emeritus Professor of Neonatal Paediatrics at University College London and author of Matters of Life and Death (IVP).More Info...
Surviving the Foundation Years
Staying close to God during the busy first years of medical work is a challenge.
The principles outlined here were a great help to me in keeping God's word central, maintaining fellowship with other Christians, and remembering that Jesus had a purpose for me in my work, even when I was too busy or tired to see it. The practical tips given were most useful.
I hope other readers will get as much from this booklet as I did – and not only survive the Foundation years but actively thrive during them.

Christians in the firing line
What do a doctor, and electrician, a beautician, a magistrate, a nurse and a counsellor have in common?|
These are amongst many professional people who have encountered serious problems at work because of their Christian faith. Some have lost their jobs and others have faced censure.
Marginalisation of Christians in Euroope, and particularly in the UK, is becoming more common. Members of Parliament and even bishops may debate the subject, often concluding that there is no problem, but the issue is no longer academic if it is your job under threat, your livelihood and beliefs that are at stake.
This book examines the cases of thirteen people who have been warned, blacklisted, suspended or dismissed for refusing to compromise their biblical principles in the face of an officialdom seemingly hell-bent on bowing down to the 'god' of political correctness and secularism. Some of the cases considered (a street preacher and a city councillor) are about public witness beyond the workplace.
Those who are under attack have found in their struggles that they need not stand alone. There are Christian lawyers who have joined together with the organisation called Christian Concern to seek to protect the rights of those who imply wish to stand up for what they believe to be true and good.More Info...
With so many Christian books on so many different topics, do you find it difficult to know where to start? Try this: The Fight offers an overall, Bible-based quide to the Christian life as a whole. Psychiatrist John White makes clear what it means to be born again, describing our new status before God and looking in more detail at how we can live this out. The book is set out in short, easily digestible chapters and covers everything from prayer, Bible reading and guidance, to faith, holiness and the devil. White identifies the areas in which we may struggle and provides very practical advice for Christian living. He's careful not to create a legalistic, box-ticking exercise, but constantly reminds us of the wonders of God's grace and our motivation to bring him glory. As well as being a perfect starter for new Christians, this book is a great encouragement for those already running the race. The Fight is a serious and timely reminder of our role in the struggle, as we eagerly await the return of Christ.
This title is available to UK & Irish CMF students at a discounted price via the Take and Read pages

The Hole in Our Gospel
WHAT DOES GOD EXPECT OF US? Is faith just about going to Church, studying the Bible and avoiding the most serious sins – or does God expect more? Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it? |
Over ten years ago, Richard Sterns came face to face with that question as he sat in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda, listening to the heartbreaking story of an orphaned child. Stern's journey there took much more than a long flight to Africa. It took answering God's call on his life, a call that tore him out of his corner office at one of America's most prestigious corporations – to walk with the poorest of the poor in our world.
The Hole in Our Gospel is the compelling true story of a corporate CEO who set aside worldly success for something far more significant, and discovered the full power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to change his own life. He uses his journey to demonstrate how the gospel – the whole gospel – was always meant to be a world changing social revolution, a revolution that begins with usMore Info...
