Every Good Endeavor

Every Good Endeavor
In today's increasingly competitive and insecure economic environment, we often question the reason for work: why am I doing this? Why is it so hard? And what can I do about it? Work may seem just a means to an end: we do it to earn the money to enjoy life outside the workplace. Here, Timothy Keller argues that God's plan is radically more ambitious: he actually created us to work. We are to work together to make the world a better place, to help each other, and so to find purpose for our lives. Our faith should enhance our work, and our work should develop our faith.With deep insight, Timothy Keller draws on essential and relevant biblical wisdom to address our questions about work. There is grace available if we have taken the wrong attitude, idolising money and using our careers to glorify ourselves rather than God. Keller shows how through excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity and passion in the workplace we can impact society for good.Developing a better attitude to work releases us to serve others humbly, to worship God everyday, and leaves us deeply fulfilled.More Info...

Enjoying God

Enjoying God

We believe in God, we serve God, we love God - but do we ENJOY God as much as we can? Does our head knowledge translate into affection of the heart? Do we have a meaningful relationship with someone we can't see? Do we feel excited about God everyday, in every context?

Tim Chester shows us how to relate to each of the three persons of the Trinity, and what this looks like in practice. Readers will discover that as we engage more with God, and understand how awesome he is, we can enjoy him more.

This isn't a book about the Trinity. It's a "how to" book exploring how we relate to God (for which we need a true understanding of the Trinity). In day-to-day life, how do the three persons of the Trinity relate to us, and how do we respond?

The Doctor's Life of Faith

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...

Against the Flow

Against the Flow
Daniel's story is one of extraordinary faith in God lived out at the pinnacle of executive power. It tells of four teenage friends, born in the tiny state of Judah about 26 centuries ago, but captured by Nebuchadnezzar, emperor of Babylon. Daniel describes how they eventually rose to the top echelons of administration.
Daniel and his friends did not simply maintain their private devotion to God; they maintained a high-profile witness in a pluralistic society antagonistic to their faith. That is why their story has such a powerful message for us today.More Info...

Right to die?

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).

Serving in Babylon: Daniel's Story

Serving in Babylon: Daniel's Story
When Jerusalem fell to the Babylonians in 587 BC, the nation of Judah was taken to Babylon in an exile that would last 70 years. As God's people in a foreign land that was hostile to their faith and values, they faced the challenge of living and serving as 'aliens and strangers'. There was great pressure to close ranks or to forget who they were.

The temptation was either to retreat into an escapist spiritual ghetto or simply to compromise and become no different from those around them.

But the prophet Jeremiah instead urged the exiles, who included Daniel and his friends, to become fully engaged with their new society, whilst maintaining their distinctiveness as believers faithful to God - to be truly in the world but not of the world.

Christians living in 21st century Britain and serving in the NHS face similar challenges to those of Daniel. In this booklet, Peter Saunders, CMF Chief Executive, encourages Christian Healthcare professionals to be fruitful yet distinctive as they serve God in Today's NHS.

The Christian Call to Social Justice

The Christian Call to Social Justice
Christians are called to proclaim the gospel, but what about social justice issues? William Wilberforce is best known for is work in abolishing the slave trade, but was also a deeply committed evangelical Christian with a broad agenda for reforming society.

Throughout the Bible, God used people to have a phenomenal influence on their culture - Joseph, Nehemiah, Esther, Daniel and others.

Likewise today, Peter Saunders, CMF Chief Executive, encourages Christians to be 'not of the world' but to be deeply engaged in it, influencing the direction of culture; to preach Jesus as Lord of the whole universe and ourselves as his servants walking in his footsteps.

Surviving the Foundation Years

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.

Dr Laurence Crutchlow, CMF Associate Head of Student Ministries
