Servant Ministry

Servant Ministry

A portrait of Christ and a pattern for his followers Tony Horsfall £7.99

Servanthood is something to which all believers are called, not just those in full-time ministry, and so understanding what servanthood means is vital for the health and well-being of local churches. Every member needs to appreciate their role as a servant of God. Servant Ministry offers a practical exposition of the first 'Servant Song' based in Isaiah (42:1-9). Writing from many years of Christian teaching and mentoring, Tony Horsfall applies insights drawn from the Isaiah passage to topics such as the motivation for service and the call to serve; valid expressions of servanthood and the link between evangelism and social action; character formation and what it means to be a servant; how to keep going over the long haul in the harsh realities of ministry; the importance of listening to God on a daily basis and also over a whole lifetime.

The Way of the Desert

The Way of the Desert

Daily Bible Readings through Lent to Easter Andrew Watson £7.99

In the Bible the desert is a place of punishment and discipline, but also of blessing and love's reawakening. Both Jesus and the people of Israel before him spent time in the desert, learning what it meant to be chosen and loved and holy. Yet while the people of the Exodus frequently got it wrong, providing some cautionary tales for us to learn from, Jesus himself constantly got it right, offering a perfect model for us to follow. In The Way of the Desert Andrew Watson takes us on a Lenten journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day, from the parting of the Red Sea to Israel's entry into the promised land.

Facing the Darkness and Finding the Light

Facing the Darkness and Finding the Light

Reflections for troubled times from the book of Revelation David Winter Currently out of print £6.99

Where does evil come from? Why is it present in the world and within our own lives? Why do the innocent suffer and - too often - the powerful prevail? If there is a God and he is good, why is the world that he created constantly marred by conflict, war and natural disaster? Such huge questions, with which humanity has grappled since the very beginning, lie at the heart of Revelation, that mesmerising and often puzzling book of the Bible. In this book, David Winter takes us on a step-by-step journey through the apocalyptic and mysterious visions of Revelation.
