David Robertson

Judges: Such a Great Salvation (Focus on the Bible)
Dale Ralph Davis

Christian Focus, 2006

The Church has a problem with Judges, it is so earthy, puzzling, primitive and violent - so much so that the Church can barely stomach it. It falls under the category 'embarrassing scripture'. Such an attitude is, of course, wrong so Ralph Davis here makes Judges digestible by analysing the major literary and theological themes discovered in each section, providing a 'theocentric' exposition.

Five Points: Towards a Deeper Experience of God's Grace

Grief and Pain in the Plan of God: Christian Assurance and the message of Lamentations
Walter C. Kaiser Jr.

Christian Focus, 2004

Most of us will have faced that most delicate situation of meeting a person who is suffering. We tend to go down one of two different avenues. One is to offer well-intentioned advice - often in the form of well-worn cliches that the person will have heard several times before. The other is not to say anything at all - risking the danger of leaving the person under the impression that God has no idea what is going on and is unable to help.How are ...

With One Voice: Singleness, Dating & Marriage to the Glory of God
Alex Chediak, Marni Chediak

Christian Focus, 2006

Christians are fighting against a conflicting cultural ethos; reducing the beauty of God-invented sexuality to just another entertainment option.

Alex and Marni Chediak from their experience of singles and college ministry, multi-generational small group ministry, offer wise guidance in how we should go about choosing ...
  
  











  



  
18 Words: The Most Important Words you will Ever Know

These skills combine to make 18 Words a fascinating read - and a life-changing one.
