What are the marks of a true Christ-follower
These days it is often difficult to identify any differences in lifestyle between those who profess to be Christians and those who don't. But Jesus challenged those who choose to follow Him to count the cost. So what does true discipleship look like? What does it require of us? This study will bring you face to face with what it means to deny yourself and follow Christ. As you better understand the distinctive marks of a true disciple, you will be challenged to follow Jesus into radical living and discover the blessings that come from complete surrender.

Becoming a liberated disciple
Jesus does not call us to a journey of guilt and failure, stuffy religion or a kind of churchy straitjacket. He calls us to a life of obedience, harmony, joy and peace. We become 'liberated disciples'. 'This book grounds discipleship in the life of the individual and the church, but sees its outworking as being in the world,' says the author.
Unleash the healing power of forgiveness
As imperfect people in an imperfect world we eventually confront in nearly every relationship the need to extend or receive forgiveness. But when the wounds run deep, forgiveness does not come easy. How can I forgive when the pain is so great? Does forgiving mean I have to forget the past? What if I choose not to forgive? As you dig into what the Bible has to say on this vital topic, you will encounter the depths of God's mercy and discover how choosing forgiveness can free you from a painful past and propel you toward being all that God intended you to be.

Celebrating our spiritual adoption
The key to our liberation as Christians is the biblical image of spiritual adoption. So often we continue to live as spiritual orphans, forgetting that thanks to the saving work of Jesus we have been made sons and daughters of God. From Orphans to Heirs explores this image of adoption, much neglected as a way of understanding our salvation, yet crucial in an age when so many people are searching for intimacy. Mark Stibbe also shares his own story of growing up as an adopted child and the insights his experiences gave him into the heart of God, our adopting Father.

Becoming the family God wants you to be
Numerous books set out to help Christian parents in the challenging mission of raising their children well-so what's different about this one? Well, the answer's in the title! It's not about how the gospel fits into Christian family life, but how family life should fit into the gospel-God's greatest purpose for this universe, achieved in Christ.

God still speaks loud and clear. Are you listening?

Why God must punish sin
This book was born out of the author’s own struggles with this issue, and he writes with empathy as well as intellectual rigour, answering questions such as: Why can’t God just ‘pass over’ wrong-doing? How does ‘the God who punishes’ fit with ‘the God who is love’? And why is the death of Jesus on a cross the ultimate expression of God’s love? Amazingly, we discover that only by understanding God’s determination to punish sin can we truly appreciate His astounding love — unimaginably and uniquely, love that is truly just, yet freely available to every one of us.
Is it ever just sex?
Described as 'a watershed book' and 'compulsory reading for all serious minded Christians', Just Sex encourages us to consider whether the impact of our sexual relationships on others around us is fair, or just. Explaining the strength and integrity of the Christian world-view of sex with conviction and pastoral sensitivity, it addresses the inconsistency and inadequacy of the prevailing idea that consent alone is enough to sanction a sexual relationship. Demonstrating the injustice created by this approach the book offers a better, more just way, which brings with it the promise of God's shalom.
LIFE WITH GOD is Richard Foster’s first major new work for nearly a decade. So many of us want to make the Bible the foundation of our way of life, but struggle to make sense of this huge, apparently disjointed book. Why is that Christians try so hard to place the Bible at the centre of their lives, but in reality get very little from it in terms of genuine life-transforming practice? Readers will discover a whole new way to read Scripture, making it a doorway to a lifestyle we can master, rather than merely knowledge we understand.

Virtual Ethics and Christian Values
In recent years, the Church's witness has been overshadowed at times by its struggles with painful ethical controversies, facing apparently stark choices between 'keeping the law' or 'doing what love demands'. At the same time, in our post-Christian, multi-faith culture, we urgently need to find common ground on which to base shared values for society.
Evil spirits. Demons. Ghosts. Magic. Satan. Do these words speak of a frightening spiritual reality? Or are they the silly remnants of a more superstitious age? In Living with the Underworld, the head of New Testament Studies at Moore Theological College,

If prayer is simply a matter of talking to God, why do we often find it so difficult, or at the very least, hard to prioritise?

The Remarkable History of the King James Version
In 1611 a book was published which would become the most familiar and widely read in the world: the King James Bible. For centuries it has been a religious and literary classic. But how did this 'noblest monument of English prose', in Robert Lowth's famous words, come to be? In the 13th century England was the only country in Europe to ban explicitly the translation of the Bible into the vernacular. For centuries, English Bibles were burned and translators executed. Guiding us through the forces that shaped King James' masterpiece, Derek Wilson explores the immense transformation of religion and society that led to its origin, tells the history of its making, and celebrates the breadth of its unparalleled influence. The story that unfolds will captivate all who enjoy history, religion, literature, or language.
Achieving God's Greatest Challenge
‘Total forgiveness is as spectacular as any miracle. We are talking about a feat greater than climbing Mount Everest. It means the highest watermark in anyone’s spiritual pilgrimage. And yet it is within reach of any of us.’ This book, possibly R T Kendall’s most important work to date, explains what God calls for as ‘total forgiveness’. No sin or action is unforgivable, says R T, and we are called to keep no record of wrongs, to refuse to punish those who have hurt us, to show mercy and to avoid any form of bitterness. A radical message for a divided world.

Votewise Now! argues that politics should be first and foremost about right relationships, and that the best way to 'do' politics is to engage with the things that really concern people. The book outlines all the key issues, turning to biblical teaching for a Christian perspective, offering a series of principles against which to evaluate party promises. It concludes with a Christian MP from each of the UK's three main political parties responding to the question, 'Why should a Christian vote for your party?'"
Selwyn Hughes draws on more than four decades of counselling experience and scriptural knowledge to deal with forty of life's most common problems, including fear, disappointment and bereavement.
