Christian Theology: An Introduction
Christian Theology: An Introduction
Price: £18.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Theology Made Interesting, 18 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have not got very far into this book but already I am impressed and delighted with the positive approach and style of Alister McGrath's presentation. His prose is extremely clear and persuasive, drawing his readers into the enthusiasm he obviously has for Theology. I am very much looking forward to reading and learning much more of this intensively informative work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nature and Man, 20 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this collection of short stories resonating with the sense of power and drama in Nature. Also the perceptive narrative on human behaviour and character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great study from Tom Wright, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
True to form, this is an excellent study of Mark's Gospel, written in a convincing and very accessible style. Tom Wright has broken down the study into easily digestible chapters and in each one he provides relevant and colourful examples and every day illustrations. Better still, he concludes each chapter with a penetrating challenge or question. A very helpful and informative read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Birthday Present for a 12 year old girl, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cra-Z-Loom Bracelet Maker (Toy)
My Grand daughter was very grateful to receive this birthday present. She likes the technique involved in creating the bracelets, the variety of styles and the colours available in the bands we added. Also, so many of her friends have one so she can now join them in making and swapping bracelets.

1.0 out of 5 stars I regret choosing this collection, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 101 best jokes (Kindle Edition)
This collection is not amusing to me and does no credit to the title! The jokes are very poor, in poor taste, often not in the least funny and of a very low level of humour. I regret I cannot delete it entirely from my Kindle collection.


The Screwtape Letters: Letters from a Senior to a Junior Devil
The Screwtape Letters: Letters from a Senior to a Junior Devil
Price: £4.76

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic C S Lewis, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
C S Lewis has a deep understanding of human nature, faith and temptations. In The Screwtape Letters, he expresses his understandings in such a clear and forthright manner, enriched by using the idiom of letters from a Senior Devil to a Junior. Each of the "letters" strikes a particularly relevant chord in the minds of those developing their christian faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This kettle meets all the criteria we applied to our choice - it is light, it has a flip lid, the handle is perfectly placed for our senior hands, it has adequate filtering and it pours very smoothly. Furthermore, the easy viewing panel showing the amount of water is excellent and the speed of boiling is better than some.
An excellent purchase.

C. S. Lewis: A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Another clear exposition from Alister McGrath, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This biography of C S Lewis is excellent. Alister McGrath has gone to great lengths in his research and it shows in his comprehensive reporting of C S Lewis and his works. McGrath gives credible and meaningful interpretations of what he has researched and where these interpretations are his own, he supports them with entirely credible quotations and references. Furthermore, McGrath achieves what he admires most in C S Lewis, namely a written style which is clear, meaningful and easily accessible to the minds of lay people.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Challenging Read, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
John Robinson puts forward some challenging thoughts on the concept of God. The text in this 50th Anniversary production is still as sharp and testing as when it was first published. The propositions are very well researched and opinions documented and he is very careful to make it clear that he is not demolishing God or Christianity - rather, he is pointing up a different way of "seeing" or "appreciating" God. It is clear that his views would have been, and probably still are, quite controversial. But it is worth persevering and distilling his true message.
