Walking with Old Testament Women

Walking with Old Testament Women

Imaginative studies for Bible meditations Fiona Stratta £7.99

Considering around 20 women characters, some familiar, some anonymous, we explore what their experiences can teach us today. Suitable for both group and individual use, it is also an excellent resource for refreshing Bible understanding for those who feel they know the stories well.

Hilda of Whitby

Hilda of Whitby

A spirituality for now Ray Simpson £7.99

In the dark and turbulent centuries after the Roman occupation of Britain, and during the Anglo-Saxon colonisation, the light of heaven still shone through the work and witness of the monastic communities, 'villages of God', which dotted the land. One of the most remarkable figures of those times was Hilda of Whitby. Born and reared amid warring pagan tribes, through the influence of Celtic saints and scholars she became a dominant figure in the development of the British Church, above all at the famous Synod where Celtic and Roman Churches came together. Until recently, though, the story of this extraordinary woman has not received much attention.

Parenting Children for a Life of Purpose

Parenting Children for a Life of Purpose

Empowering children to become who they are called to be Rachel Turner £7.99

'Too long we have stood apart as a church and looked at children and teens and said, "We love you, we value you, but we don't need you." ' Our churches have the power to establish a community of purpose that all people participate in. We can be the place where children feel most powerful, most seen, most discipled and most released. We can be the church that God designed. Parenting Children for a Life of Purpose is a practical and tested handbook exploring the possibilities for helping children to discover their specific gifts for what God is calling them to be, and how parents might partner with churches to enable children to discover their true identity and purpose in life and walk alongside them on the journey.

The Recovery of Love

The Recovery of Love

Walking the way to wholeness Naomi Starkey £6.99

Some people like to be taken on mystery tours; others prefer to have a clear idea of where they are going, how long it will take, and where they will stop for lunch. This book is, in some ways, a bit of a mystery tour, exploring aspects of faith and truth through storytelling, reflection on Bible passages and quotations from other writers. At the heart of the narrative is the meaning of love: on the one hand, our hunger for it and often weary search to find it, and on the other hand God's breathtaking love for us.

Living with Infertility - a Christian perspective

This book is not about living through infertility, as though this was a tunnel on the way to some ultimate destination of child-bearing. It is about living within infertility, continuing to have a spiritual life, and doing something more than simply sitting around waiting for a baby. My experience of infertility did terrible things to my relationship with God. I was angry and disappointed; I felt forgotten by God. But it didn't have to feel like that. God was with me even then. Whether you are going through infertility yourself, or supporting a friend or family member, this book brings the Christian experience of infertility into the wider context of the story of life with God.

Everything I Know about God, I've Learned from Being a Parent

The Bible tells us that God is 'the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name' (Ephesians 3:15). If earthly families gain their nature from God's parenthood, what might our experience of family tell us about the nature of God? That is the question on which this book focuses. Veronica Zundel roots her reflections in her journey into and through parenthood, a hard journey that led through infertility, late motherhood and then learning to parent a child with special needs. What she learned along the way - about love and sacrifice, faithfulness and forgiveness - had a profound impact on her understanding of what God feels about us, his most beloved children.
