New Arrivals 31.03.10

We have some exciting arrivals, just in this week:

The Man Sent From God, a biography of John The Baptist by Samuel W. Jennings

An Exposition of Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon by James B. Currie.

Take Three, the latest novel by Karen Kingsbury.

50 Golden Hymns, a 3 cd boxed set of classic hymns.

Symphony of Praise, 3 cds of beautiful, uplifting music by the Prague Symphony Orchestra.

Just a reminder that we are closed on easter Monday and Tuesday. All other days are normal shop hours.

When Ruth (with Naomi) staggered into Bethlehem broken, disillusioned and helpless, the Bible says it was "in the beginning of barley harvest". That is the time of the feast of firstfruits. What Ruth needed was a man full of life, vigour and resources to meet her need. Paul says that Christ is the firstfruits for the believer. Every believer has not only the guarantee of resurrection but a living, powerful Christ with resources to meet all our needs.

We wish all our customers a happy Easter season.

Book of the Week - 50 People Every Christian Should Know

Book of the Week:
50 People Every Christian Should Know
by Warren W. Wiersbe

his 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."

New Arrivals

New Arrivals this week:
1 & 2 Thessalonians by Phillip Harding.
The city of Thessalonica was situated on the famous Egnatian way and was a key city in Macedonia, being its chief port. It was therefore strategically and comercially important. Its population was mostly Gentile but a large company of Jews with their Synagogue exerted a strong influence upon the Gentiles.

The gospel came to Thessolonica through the apostle Paul and his companions and some of the Jews and many of the Gentiles were saved. It is the firm conviction of Phillip Harding that just as the Thessalonian believers needed the grace of God to live for Him - so do we today.

Other recent arrivals include:
The Gospel In Genesis by Martin Lloyd Jones, never-before-published sermons on the early chapter of Genesis.

The Silent Governness, by Julie Klassen, new historical fiction, part of our Fiction for a Fiver range of novels.

C.H. Spurgeon: The People's Preacher, a new drama documentary dvd on the life and preaching of this remarkable man of God. Also available is a companion paperback biography of the same name.

Book of the Week 22.03.10

Book of the Week:
Son of Hamas by Mosab Hassan Yousef.

Since he was a small boy, Mosab Hassan Yousef has had an inside view of the deadly terrorist group Hamas. The oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founding member of Hamas and its most popular leader, young Mosab assisted his father for years in his political activities while being groomed to assume his legacy, politics, status . . . and power. But everything changed when Mosab turned away from terror and violence, and embraced instead the teachings of another famous Middle East leader. In Son of Hamas, Mosab Yousef—now called “Joseph”—reveals new information about the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization and unveils the truth about his own role, his agonizing separation from family and homeland, the dangerous decision to make his newfound faith public, and his belief that the Christian mandate to “love your enemies” is the only way to peace in the Middle East.
