Travel with John Blanchard: Guernseys Evangelist, &hellip by Brian H. Edwards
3 of 4 people found the following review helpful
Over the last number of the years, John Blanchard has written much. However, there seems to have been very little written about the man himself. Here then is a short book giving a biographical sketch of the popular Christian preacher, author and apologist. The book takes us through Blanchard's early years on Guernsey and his time as a war evacuee on the Scottish island of Islay. We then see his ministry develop from his conversion, to his beginnings as a preacher, a reader in the Church of England, and his time working for different groups such as Young Life and Christian Ministries. Trips to foreign lands are described as are his early writing ventures, (e.g. Read Mark, Learn and Right… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but to the point., 31 July 2010
This is a short, yet well-researched work, in which, John Blanchard outlines Richard Dawkins views and arguments for atheism. These include the view that science gives and answer to everything, and that religion is the cause of all evils. Blanchard then goes on to show how flawed those views are, and offers vastly better views pointing towards the existence of an Almighty God. This will be an encouraging read for Christians and could help them sharpen up their own arguments for the existence of God and the person of His Son Jesus Christ. It will also be of use for interested non-Christians who are seeking.
24 Hours That Changed the World by Nick Howard
5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping stuff, 30 July 2010
Are you a fan of Jack Bauer and the T.V. series 24? Using that programme's format, evangelist Nick Howard takes us through the last twenty-four hours leading up to the death of Jesus Christ. The crucifixion story is told in a fresh way through the eyes of disciples, servants, soldiers and government officials. The short book then ends with an epilogue describing what happened 36 hours later (when the women found the empty tomb), and then a short gospel message showing the relevance of the death and resurrection for people today. Here's a book that is biblically based and culturally relevant. A useful tool for explaining the message of the cross.
