Anywhere But Nineveh: A Month's Journey with Jonah
Anywhere But Nineveh: A Month's Journey with Jonah
Price: £4.88

5.0 out of 5 stars Day by day through the Book of Jonah., 15 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this devotional commentary on the Book of Jonah. Although it's a Bible book I've read many times, the author brought it afresh to me. A commentary that can be read over 31 days, it contains a good exposition of Jonah as well as a daily challenge. The book also contains a series of questions at the end, suitable for either group or personal study. Warmly recommend.


Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cures
Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cures
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christian classic, 12 May 2017
One of the most popular myths in the christian church today, is that once you become a christian all your problems disappear! They don't! New problems still arise, even for christians in a fallen world. The christian is still involved from day-to-day in spiritual warfare.

This particular book by Martyn Lloyd-Jones is one of his best books. It comes across as a real encouragement for christians who face all sorts of struggles in their christian life. Subjects examined include struggles, trials, the Lord's disciplining of His people, doubts, and the secret of contentment.

Although based on a series of sermons preached back in the late 1950s, the book is very readable and the teaching is still highly relevant for today. This book will hopefully bring about renewal, restoration, and joyful, victorious christian living.


Redemption Accomplished and Applied
Redemption Accomplished and Applied
Price: £9.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear teaching on the Atonement, 11 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very valuable book written by John Murray. The book is divided into two parts: 1. Redemption accomplised; 2. Redemption applied.
In part one, Murray shows us in depth, the need for, the nature and the significance of the death of Christ. In the second part, he then shows the blessings that come from it. This section begins with an explanation of what is often known as the 'ordo salutis' - the order of salvation. From a study of Romans 8:30, Murray shows us the order of the blessings: effectual calling, regeneration, faith and repentance, justification, adoption, sanctification, perseverance, union with Christ, glorification. This is then followed by an individual, helpful chapter on each of these terms. Each blessing being thoroughly explained by reference to appropriate Bible passages.
Some argue that Murray's writings can be a bit too heavy. This may or may not be the case with some of his other works, however, this particular book is written in a very readable and clear style. Christians need to be clear regarding the theology of the atonement. This book, although written many years ago, will be a great help in clarifying issues. A classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Christian living, 11 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walk Worthy (Kindle Edition)
Here we have a helpful, practical guide, which is particularly written for the new Christian who seeks to grow and mature in their faith. Peter Jeffery starts by outlining what happens when a person becomes a Christian, and explains some key words and expressions such as justification and sanctification. In doing so he clears up some of the misunderstandings that have arisen regarding those teachings. He then gives the reader guidelines for Bible study, prayer and being part of a local church. Further, he gives advice for dealing with some difficult issues such as coping with trials, temptations and failure in the Christian life. He also looks at being an effective witness for Christ, and knowing how God guides the Christian. The book concludes with some helpful chapters on tricky issues for the Christian, e.g handling money, marriage and relationships, and drugs.
A very simply written book with short, easy to read chapters. This is chiefly for those who have come to a personal faith in Jesus Christ as their Saviour and will be particularly helpful for new Christians. However, it also has much helpful teaching for those who have been in the faith for a while, and may be in need of a refresher course.


Shared Life: The Trinity and the Fellowship of God's people
Shared Life: The Trinity and the Fellowship of God's people
by Donald MacLeod
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear teaching on the Trinity, 11 May 2017
The doctrine of the trinity is easily misunderstood. It can also be poorly illustrated during sermons. This book by Donald MacLeod is brief, but simple and should help the reader to become clearer with respect to issues concerning the relationship between God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He begins by presenting proof of the doctrine of the Trinity from both Old and New Testaments, and then builds on this by giving evidence from early church thinkers. Finally, he describes some misunderstandings and errors on the subject taught by other religions and religious movements, and answers some of the objections that they raise. This book is a very well researched and highly informative work. I personally found it very helpful and would recommend it to both young and mature Christians.


Reformation: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Reformation: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
by Carl R. Trueman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Timely teaching for today, 11 May 2017
A very detailed and thought-provoking work, which will have you thinking about the practices of your church today. The author shows how the teachings of the 16th century Reformers are still relevant for us today. Although our culture may be vastly different from theirs, the message of God revealing Himself in Christ is still urgently needed. The author also goes on to show the importance of the preaching of the Bible as God’s Word for today. Finally, he concludes with a chapter on assurance for the Christian, based on the teaching of the Bible, rather than on legalistic teaching or personal feelings and experiences. Highly recommended, and containing much timely teaching for the evangelical church today.


Out of the Depths: Psalm 51
Out of the Depths: Psalm 51

5.0 out of 5 stars A life-changing message for today, 11 May 2017
Four sermons from Dr Lloyd-Jones, going through Psalm 51. This psalm is often known as David’s psalm of repentance following his adultery with Bathsheba. Lloyd-Jones takes us through the psalm and gives us first of all, an exposition of the nature and seriousness of sin. He then shows the importance and need of repentance for both Christians and non-christians today. Finally he goes on to show from the psalm what repentance will lead to – joy and gladness, a realisation of God’s power, and a desire to please God and to live for His glory. These sermons are simple to read and understand, but also, truly challenging. They will certainly get a person to think about their own life. Warmly recommended.


Let Everybody Praise the Lord
Let Everybody Praise the Lord
Price: £7.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Psalm 107 clearly explained., 11 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a series of eight sermons, expounding Psalm 107. Although preached back in 1955, as you read through, you can see that the message of these sermons is still as relevant for today. From the beginning, as Lloyd-Jones takes us through the opening verses, he shows the need to be in a relationship with the living God, and what that relationship will lead to – praise and thanksgiving. The author uses the psalmist’s word-pictures to describe the amazing grace of God in rescuing sinners from the wilderness, setting them free from prison, healing them from a dreadful disease and saving them from a terrible storm. Lloyd-Jones then concludes with three sermons from the closing verses of the psalm, which speak of the Lord turning ‘the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.’ He uses these verses to describe the salvation of God and to explain the change that God makes to a person’s life when they experience His salvation.
As indicated, these are messages which are still relevant for young and old today, simple to follow and understand. I highly recommend this, along with Lloyd-Jones’ other books on the Psalms.


Travel with John Blanchard: Guernseys Evangelist, Author and Christian Apologist (Day One Travel Guides)
Travel with John Blanchard: Guernseys Evangelist, Author and Christian Apologist (Day One Travel Guides)
by Brian H. Edwards
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.74

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, brief, yet thorough biography., 31 July 2010
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 with God). Finally, we are taken up to his ministry of defending the faith in response to the rise of atheism and agnosticism. Along the way we get to know something of the man himself, such as his dry sense of humour and his love of golf.
This book is part of the Day One Travel Guide series, and therefore, in addition to the biographical sketch, it contains lots of additional information. There are notes concerning places of interest to visit, contact addresses and web-sites. There are also many colour photos, along with maps and travel guides, for anyone interested in following in Blanchard's footsteps! The book gives a fairly enlightening biography and at the end, it gives us a summary of Blanchard's life (so far) and a list of his writings from down through the years.
The author Brian Edwards knows his subject on a personal level. He gives us a biography, which has been well researched and is written in a very clear and simple fashion.


Dealing with Dawkins
Dealing with Dawkins
by John Blanchard
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but to the point., 31 July 2010
This review is from: Dealing with Dawkins (Paperback)
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.
