January 2020 - for all your ministry needs
I think I should rename this blog Editor's Round-up, as I'm going to talk about every single one of our fantastic January publications. Whizzing through:
First up, The Essential Guide to Family Ministry by Gail Adcock. There's very little out there for church family practitioners, so this comprehensive but highly browsable manual really is essential if you're working in this area.
If you're a Messy Church leader or a church leader exploring Holy Habits, Holy Habits in Messy Church is for you. It contains 11 new Messy Church sessions, themed around the Holy Habits, together with simplified Messy Vintage outlines for use in a care home setting.
The clue's in the subtitle for our next book. From former BRF commissioning editor Mike Parsons, How to Read the Bible... so that it makes a difference is for Christians who feel that their engagement with the Bible is not making the difference in their lives that they'd like it to. Also useful for small group leaders looking for guidance or fresh ideas in how to lead a Bible study, and for church leaders for sermon preparation or as a basis for running training.
Responding to popular demand, we're also now offering the Parenting for Faith course DVD and printed handbooks as an alternative to the free digital downloads to be found at parentingforfaith.org. Individual and pack options available.
Just a word about Lent
And finally, if you haven't yet decided on your Lent reading for this year, do grab a copy of David Walker's You Are Mine, pleasingly endorsed by both the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of York. For study groups, Journeying through Lent with New Daylight provides eight weeks of session material alongside daily readings for the whole of Lent.
