Christmas

We would like to wish you all every blessing for Christmas and the coming year and thank you all for your support and custom throughout 2010.

In the midst of frozen pipes, icy roads and dead car batteries, it's time to turn our thoughts to home, family, love, gifts and spending time together.

But, above that, we can turn our thoughts to the greatest gift ever given and the greatest expression of love ever shown, when the One who made the world came into the world, with one object: to give Himself for us.

So, sit back, enjoy the season. Think of the greatest gift ever given, given by God Himself. And think that one day, the One who was given the outside place shall be acknowledged Lord of all.

Happy Christmas.
The AEB Team.

P.s., perhaps we could also remind you of our Holiday opening hours.

Monday 27th: closed

Book of the Week: City of the Seven Hills

by Henry Grattan Guinness.

You have never read a book like this before. At once majestic poetry, sweeping history and stirring devotional, it is a masterpiece which would become any bookshelf. At heart, it is a history of Rome in poetic form, from the beginnings of the Empire through to its ultimate fate in the book of Revelation.
The poetry on the life of Christ is among the most sublime and Christ-exalting poetry you will ever read. An extensive appendix at the back of the book provides historical evidences for all author's verse and his accounts of the suffering of the martyrs will stir the heart of any reader.
The poem culminates with the final victory and vindication of the Lord Jesus.

Read this sample poetry from the book:
Though at His bidding winds and waves were still,
Though earth and heaven but waited on His will,
Yet all for us He wandered in the wild,
Of pain the heir, of poverty the child.
O never did there bloom beneath the skies
So fair a flower as this; nor mortal eyes
Behold the perfect loveliness of grace,
Without a shadow - save in Jesus' face.

Book of the Week: Genesis in the Light of the New Testament

by F.W. Grant.

In this book F.W. Grant traces New Testament principles as discovered in "seed" form in the book of beginnings. One of the main threads of thought running through the book being "that which is natural, and afterward that which is spiritual." We can see New Testament truths in many ways, including creation, government, named characters and through it all God working out His own purpose and grace.

Book of the Week: Cannibalism Conquered

John G. Paton and Alexander MacKay

John G. Paton
Growing up in a little cottage in Dumfriesshire, Paton was cradled in the gospel and raised on a faithful father's prayers. He grew to be a towering figure in the advancement of the gospel worldwide. He left that little cottage and his father's prayers to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the New Hebrides, an island group in the South Pacific. He faithfully laboured, and raised a family, among the wild and savage heathen, despite being in constant danger and threat of death. On the first assembling of his little congregation of converts, he wrote "I had the foretaste of the joy of glory that well-nigh broke my heart in pieces. I shall never taste a deeper bliss till I gaze on the glorified face of Jesus Himself."

Alexander McKay
When a young Scottish draughtsman, working in Germany, wrote in his diary the following words, "this day last year Livingstone died - a Scotsman and a Christian, loving God and his neighbour in the heart of Africa. Go thou and do likewise," the seed sown by a mother's prayers was beginning to show life. Later, he read H.M. Stanley's famous challenge written in the Daily Telegraph "challenging Christendom to send missionaries to Uganda." Answering the call of the Lord of the Harvest, MacKay put his life to the Master's use. He arrived in Zanzibar in May, 1876, taking two further years to reach Uganda. Amidst much opposition, many perils, hardships and setbacks, he never wavered, and never left Africa again. Stanley called him "the greatest missionary since Livingstone."

Book of the Week: Our Witchdoctors Are Too Weak

by Davey & Marie Jank.

When Davey Jank starts a new life in the Amazon jungle among a remote tribe, he enters a world where witchcraft and shamanism are the trade of the powerful, and where fear drives a timid and isolated society to acts of desperation and the brink of despair. Davey, Marie and the others who later join them struggle to decipher and learn the unwritten language of the tribe. Within a few years the Wilos are enthusiastically reading and writing in their own language for the first time. But they want more. They want to know what "God's Talk" says. They hope that there is something more to life than the vicious cycle of fearing and appeasing the evil spirits at every turn. Finally the Wilos get what they have so long been waiting for: God's Word, taught in their own language. God had been preparing their hearts for this very message.

He went to be with his Lord on his eighty-sixth birthday.

Henry Grattan Guinness (1835-1910)
was a nineteenth century evangelist and author. A grandson of brewery founder Arthur Guinness, he gave up his inheritance after conversion to become a preacher of the gospel. A friend of D.L. Moody and Hudson Taylor, he maintained an interest in missionary work throughout his life and founded the East London Missionary Training Institute. His ambition was "to live preaching and to die preaching." He was an active preacher and was widely used of God during the 1859 revival. He was also a prolific author.

It is the story of the effects of the Wesleyan Revival in a small Cornish village. In January 2008, we were proud to be able to make available again the treasured Two Version Bible, the Authorized Version with the Revised Version in the margin. It is continued our aim, from time to time, to reissue selected books which, tapping the treasures of a previous era, will benefit today's readership.

Book of the Week: A Woman Who Reflects the Heart of Jesus

by Elizabeth George.

Elizabeth George has long been a favorite source of encouragement and wisdom for women who hunger to know how God desires for them to live. In her newest release, Elizabeth asks, “Where better can we learn about right character and conduct than Jesus Himself?”

There is much we can learn from this perfect life example: His generosity in caring for the needs of others, the abundance of His kindness and forgiveness even to His enemies, His persistence in watching over His own, and His willingness to give His all even though He had nothing.

Every woman who desires to…

1. Skillfully make the most of limited time 2. Give freely without expecting anything in return 3. Achieve all things in God’s strength and not her own 4. Let her light shine and glorify God

will find a treasure trove of truths and applications that enable her to follow well in the footsteps of Jesus.

Lancaster County, with its rolling meadows and secret byways, may seem idyllic, but it is not without its thorns. The Rose Trilogy is the stirring saga of two Amish sisters, and the events and decisions that change their lives.

Hen Kauffman Orringer's impulsive marriage to an outsider divided her from the People, a decision she regrets now that she has a daughter of her own. As Hen struggles to reclaim aspects of Amish culture, her very modern husband pushes back, and the two soon come to an impasse. Can she find a way to reconcile her longing for the Old Ways with the life she has chosen

Book of the Week: Her Daughter's Dream

by Francine Rivers.

In the dramatic conclusion to the New York Times best seller Her Mother’s Hope, Francine Rivers delivers a rich and deeply moving story about the silent sorrows that can tear a family apart and the grace and forgiveness that can heal even the deepest wounds. Growing up isn’t easy for little Carolyn Arundel. With her mother, Hildemara, quarantined to her room with tuberculosis, Carolyn forms a special bond with her oma Marta, who moves in to care for the household. But as tensions between Hildie and Marta escalate, Carolyn believes she is to blame. When Hildie returns to work and Marta leaves, Carolyn and her brother grow up as latchkey kids in a world gripped by the fear of the Cold War. College offers Carolyn the chance to find herself, but a family tragedy shatters her newfound independence. Rather than return home, she cuts all ties and disappears into the heady counterculture of San Francisco. When she reemerges two years later, more lost than ever, she reluctantly turns to her family to help rebuild a life for her and her own daughter, May Flower Dawn. Just like Carolyn, May Flower Dawn develops a closer bond with her grandmother, Hildie, than with her mother, causing yet another rift between generations. But as Dawn struggles to avoid the mistakes of those who went before her, she vows that somehow she will be a bridge between the women in her family rather than the wall that separates them forever. Spanning from the 1950s to present day, Her Daughter’s Dream is the emotional final chapter of an unforgettable family saga about the sacrifices every mother makes for her daughter—and the very nature of unconditional love.

Book of the Week: What Good is God?

by Philip Yancey.

Speaker, journalist and bestselling author, Philip Yancey has travelled the world tackling the most challenging questions:

Can God truly bring solace to the terrorised people of Mumbai, or the students who witnessed the murder of their classmates?

Will the deep scars of racism ever heal in post-apartheid South Africa, or the American South?

Can a persecuted Christian minority have any impact in places as hostile as China or the Middle East?

For each of his ten destinations, What God is God? shares Philip's inspiring words of encouragement and reveals the compelling story behind every speaking engagement.

Whether he's addressing alcoholics or Bible college students, sex workers or C. S. Lewis enthusiasts, Yancey's experiences of redemption, hope and grace provide evidence that when we are severely tested, faith really does matter.

Book of the Week: Destination Moon

The eighth man to walk on the moon took the entire Bible seriously because he took its Author seriously. He rejoiced in the Genesis account of origins. He believed that God created the world in six, twenty-four-hour days. That man was Col. James Irwin, the lunar vehicle commander for Apollo 15. Destination: Moon recounts his amazing physical and spiritual journey to the moon. With spectacular photos and “you are there” text, you will experience what it’s like to train for four years as an astronaut. You will feel the emotions of lift-off, see Earth from space, and explore the moon. As amazing as his accomplishment was, Astronaut Irwin viewed it as insignificant compared to the accomplishments of the Creator.

Col. Irwin spent the rest of his life sharing this message: “Jesus walking on Earth is more important than man walking on the moon.” His legacy of faith and discovery is an inspiration even now, thirty years after he landed on the moon. Visually stunning. By Astronaut James Irwin.

Book of the Week: Cosmos, Creator & Human Destiny

This excuse-shattering exposé of Darwin and Dawkins is the Dave Hunt magnum opus you’ve been waiting (and praying) for! Each of Dave’s seminal works—whether on occultism, Catholicism, Calvinism, ecumenism, Islam, or cosmic evolution, have all been, at the time of their publication, his “most important work to date”—and this 608-page refutation of Darwinian evolution (as championed by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and today’s aggressive “New Atheists”) is no exception. As Dave has repeatedly said throughout the production of Cosmos, Creator, and Human Destiny, “This is not the book I set out to write.” For one reason, it is not an exhaustive scientific treatise dealing purely with innumerable physical evidences. Neither is it a micro-focused academic volume that requires a degree in astrophysics to understand. Rather, Cosmos is a book that every Christian can and should read; comforting and confidence-boosting for believers, convicting and catastrophic to the skeptic’s worldview. It is a soul-arresting work that strikes to the heart of the human condition and man-centered philosophy. With shatterproof logic, it turns the arguments of atheists upon themselves, while at the same time graciously illuminating the irrefutable evidence of providence and design in every “corner” of the cosmos. The countless quotes of leading scientists and atheists (used in their original context) are alone worth the price of this lovingly written and beautifully presented hardcover. Seasoned creation-science readers will recognize that this book is intentionally “non-creationist” in appearance. Missing (by design) are the usual prolific endorsements of leading conservative evangelicals, which Dave’s impeccable research and reasoning generally garner. Even the jacket copy has been carefully crafted to pique the interest of the atheist, agnostic, or skeptic. The reason is simple: though the book is being sold primarily through distribution channels catering to Christians, Dave personally wants to give scoffers, skeptics, and non-believers every reason to pick up the book and crack it open. This magnificent hardcover volume was designed to reach your friend, neighbor, co-worker, brother, sister, mother, father, teacher, and professor with reason, logic, passion, and compassion. But make no mistake: Though Dave’s unique approach will hold the attention of ardent critics, this book is also an indispensable armory for the serious high school, college/career, and adult believer. And, as one can expect from a Dave Hunt book, the author does not avoid the Scriptures but skillfully weaves the historicity of God’s Word and the gospel throughout, with unmistakable clarity and conviction. Outside of God’s Word, there seems to be increasingly few books that merit small-group study these days—but in a world increasingly hostile to the truth that “sets one free” and which may be “clearly seen,” Cosmos is one of those you’ll want to read, share, and prayerfully consider using for your home, church, or college/career study group.

Cambridge Cameo Bible


We have just received into stock the new editions of the famous and much loved Cameo Reference Bibles by Cambridge University Press.

The beauty of the Cambridge Cameo Bible is its solution to the age-old problem of providing readable type in a book of manageable size. The Cameo was originally produced in the 1920s for letterpress printing and is now re-issued in response to continued consumer interest, in a new range of binding styles.

The print image has been enhanced, so while the text has the same familiar layout and the original Petit Medieval Clarendon type, it is now sharper than in recent printings.

There is a new range of binding styles. Top of the range is the goatskin Bible, with art-gilt edges as well as a superb edge-lined goatskin cover.

All the Bibles have a concordance and 15 colour maps. The text has pronunciation marks and red-letter text.

  • India paper
  • 15 colour maps
  • red-letter text
  • two ribbon markers
  • concordance
  • gilt or art-gilt edges
  • pronunciation mark
Sample text

Four bindings available:
KJV Black Imitation Leather
KJV Brown Calfskin Leather
KJV Black Calf split Leather
KJV Black Goatskin Leather

Book of the Week: In Japan The Crickets Cry


by Ronald Clements and Steve Metcalf.

Steve had suffered under the brutal regime of his Japanese guards. He and his classmates at Chefoo school in China had been interned in 1942. Resentment of the Japanese was a way of life. Could he possibly pray for them? He could. At the end of the war the China Inland Mission was seeking young men willing to go to Japan . Steve trained, packed and went. Thus began Steve's lifelong love of Japan. Over the years he would tussle with a culture where courtesy wins over truth; where suicide is an honourable choice; where to be foreign is to be forever alien. Time after time he would encounter miracles of healing, provision, and protection as God looked after him, his wife Evelyn and their growing family. In a resistant culture he would see many come to Christ.

Book of the Week: Be Holy

This book is a clarion call for all Christians to follow their Master's command and to Be Holy.

Christlikeness produces holiness, and Mr MacDonald stresses its importance as he looks at every area of the Christian life. This book makes compelling and searching reading for those who are serious about obeying The Forgotten Command: Be Holy.

This fast paced, compelling and at times chilling account is Tony's deeply moving true story. More extraordinary than fantasy, more remarkable than fiction, this blockbusting read almost defies belief.

Book of the Week: Who Made God?

by Edgar Andrews.

If you've been waiting for a really effective riposte to the "new atheism" of Richard Dawkins and others (or even if you haven't) here it is - gently humorous, highly readable, deeply serious, razor sharp, and written by an internationally respected scientist. Who made God? dismantles the arguments and pretensions of scientific atheism and presents a robust biblical theism as a positive, and altogether more convincing, alternative.

Book of the Week: A Hope Beyond

Book 2 in the Ribbons of Steel series by Judith Pella and Tracie Peterson.

Book of the Week: Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze
by Catherine Palmer and Gary Chapman

In book two of this fiction series based on the best-selling non-fiction book The Four Seasons of Marriage, readers meet the blended family of Derek and Kim Finley. Kim has a set of twins—one boy and one girl—from her first marriage; Luke has recently been diagnosed with diabetes, and Lydia is acting out as a result of the attention now being showered on Luke. To complicate matters, Derek's overbearing mother comes to live with them. With all that's going on in their lives, Kim and Derek's communication begins to break down and their marriage slowly moves into winter. Although the second book will focus on Kim and Derek, readers will also encounter all their favorite characters—Patsy Pringle, Pete Roberts, Steve and Brenda, Esther and Charlie—as well as some new ones, like the proprietor of the new sandwich shop that's moved in next to Patsy's beauty parlor.

The Case for Christ Study Bible

Using a journalist’s precision in gathering and presenting evidence, The NIV Case for Christ Study Bible is an engaging, informative resource that motivates seekers and skeptics, as well as long-time Christians, to investigate for themselves the Bible’s most compelling claims: the existence of a compassionate God and the promise of eternal life through His Son, Jesus.

Have you ever heard Scripture’s truths but wondered where to find those truths in the Scriptures? Or have you ever wondered where to find evidence for belief in God in the Bible? You’re not alone. Millions of people have asked these same questions, including Lee Strobel – an atheist who engaged in a thorough search for the truth to decide for himself if Jesus was who he claimed to be.

Drawn from Lee’s own experiences as a former atheist and featuring his journalistic style from his days as an investigative reporter with the Chicago Tribune, the notes and articles throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible are designed to motivate you to investigate the Bible’s claims for yourself. Whether you are a Christian seeking encouragement in your faith and knowledge about who God is or a seeker or skeptic searching for answers, you will benefit from Lee’s own extensive search for the truth. Some of the excellent study notes found in this Bible include: The Case for Christ Articles Over 220 The Case for Christ notes explore Jesus’ claims and deity and demonstrate that he is the Messiah.

Lee Strobel, with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in California.

Book of the Week: Song of the Nightingale

Song of the Nightingale
by Helen Berhane

An inspirational and challenging true story of one woman's faith, so strong it could not be broken even in the face of imprisonment and torture.
Song of the Nightingale is the true story of Helen Berhane, held captive for over two years in appalling conditions in her native Eritrea. Her crime? Sharing her faith in Jesus, and refusing, even though horrendously tortured, to deny him.
A sobering, painful, heart-rending account of true faith in the face of evil, this book makes for uncomfortable and yet inspirational reading. Helen says, 'I want to give a message to those of you who are Christians and live in the free world: You must not take your freedom for granted. If I could sing in prison, imagine what you can do for God's glory with your freedom.' A real challenge for the church in the West.

Book of the Week:
Take Three
by Karen Kingsbury

Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison set out to change the world with their films—and they are finally seeing their dreams come true. The dedicated producers are deep in negotiations with America’s top young movie star to play the lead in their next inspirational movie. But life takes a sudden turn for Chase, removing him from Jeremiah Productions permanently. In the process, Keith brings on one of the Baxter family members and the moviemaking continues.

At the same time, a crisis hits Keith’s daughter, Andi, and Keith feels helpless to respond. Devastated by the consequences of her wrong actions, Andi ventures out on her own and decides on a course of action that could destroy her. Meanwhile, Bailey Flanigan is caught up in her own drama with Cody Coleman. A Campus Crusade retreat gives them time alone along the shores of Lake Monroe and lets them face a possibility they’ve avoided for years.

Will Keith keep the passion he had at the start of his filmmaking—and will there be enough passion left over for his hurting daughter? Or has their quest to change American culture become nothing more than a quest for fame?

Book of the Week: The Hidden Flame


The Hidden Flame
by Davis Bunn & Janette Oke

Inspiring historical fiction.

In first-century Judea, the followers of the Way have burgeoned into a vibrant, growing community that cannot be ignored. Jerusalem is in turmoil as its religious leaders on one side, and their Roman rulers on the other, conspire to stamp out the fledgling Church. And Abigail, who thought she had finally found home and safety, is caught between the opposing forces.

Two suitors desire the lovely Abigail's hand in marriage. Ezra, a successful Hebrew merchant and widower with important connections among the Sanhedrin, is looking for a mother for his children. The Roman soldier Linux is fascinated by her winsome charm and possibly could offer the sanctuary--maybe even the love--for which she yearns. But her heart has been captured by neither of these. Will her faith and courage survive a heartbreak beyond comprehension as the followers face a gathering storm of persecution they never could have foreseen?

A glimmer of hope beckons Abigail forward.
