New Arrivals

Proverbs: A devotional commentary by William MacDonald. This latest book by William MacDonald is his last known manuscript, finished shortly prior to his home call on December 25, 2007. Those who knew Mr. MacDonald know that he lived a life that adhered to the wisdom offered in the Proverbs, with many years of experience, and thus a worthy author of a devotional commentary on the lofty subject.

Other recent arrivals:
Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed DVD, this programme exposes the shameful practice of silencing and discriminating against anyone who challenges Darwinian Evolution in Universities and the media.

Look What God Is Doing by Dick Eastman. True stories of people around the world changed by the gospel. "A must-read" = Kay Arthur.

The Radical Disciple by John Stott. The author looks at eight characteristics of Christian discipleship, which are commonly neglected yet deserve to be taken seriously.

Catherine's Gift by John Little. Stories of hope from the hospital by the river.

Heading for Heaven by J.C. Ryle
The Intercession of Christ by John Bunyan
Fire From Heaven: Times of Extraordinary Revival by Faith Cooke

The Scofield Bible

The Scofield Bibe: Its history and impact on the evangelical church
by R. Todd Magnum & Mark S. Sweetnam

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of the Scofield Reference Bible (1909). It is hard to believe in our era of study Bibles for most every demographic group that the Scofield Bible was the first of its kind.

The Scofield Reference Bible was uniquely responsible for popularizing dispensational theology, eventually making dispensationalism the theology assumed by everyday English-speaking Christians for much of the 20th century.

This book, written by American Todd Magnum (author of The Dispensational-Covenantal Rift) and Irish scholar Mark Sweetnam, explores the origins and impact of the Scofield Reference Bible on both sides of the Atlantic. Readable and fair, it provides insight into the approach, intentions, and theology of the Scofield Bible, valuable to both fans and critics of the Scofield Bible. It also provides rare insight into the life story of C. I. Scofield himself, which has become a subject of interest and controversy in recent years.

50 People Every Christian Should Know

We have received back into stock Warren Wiersbe's most helpful collection of biographies: 50 People Every Christian Should Know. This was a bestseller at Christmas and we could not get enough copies to meet demand.

This collection of 50 faithful men and women was previously published in two volumes: Living With The Giants and Victorious Christians You Should Know, which were compiled from a series of articles in Moody Monthly.

From the back cover:
"We all need inspiration to lead lives that honour God. When our faith is weak or the pressures of the world seem overwhelming, remembering the great men and women of the past can inspire us to renewed strength and purpose. Our spiritual struggles are not new, and the stories of those who have gone before can help lead the way to our own victories."

This very helpful book gives a glimpse into the lives of such worthies as: C.H. Spurgeon, G. Campbell Morgan, A.W. Tozer, Fanny Crosby, Amy Carmichael, Jonathan Edwards, Hudson Taylor, and many more.

From the author's forward:
"The past is not an anchor to drag us back but a rudder to help guide us into the future. I have been helped greatly in my own life and ministry by reading the hundreds of biographies, autobiographies, and histories that have enabled me to write these chapters, and I trust you will benefit from reading them."
