Backchat: Answering Christianity's Critics
Chris Sinkinson

Christian Focus, 2014

You wish you had an answer, now you do. Sinkinson tackles dodgy science and Christian urban myths whilst reminding us that Christians are not called to win arguments but hearts. Darwin's death bed conversion - truth or myth? Is God a moral monster? Is this really the God particle? Is the Bible an immoral book? Who was Jesus?
  
  











  



  
Spurgeon's Sorrows: Realistic Hope for those who Suffer from Depression
Zack Eswine

Christian Focus, 2014

Christians should have the answers, shouldn't they? Depression affects many people both personally and through the ones we love. Here Zack Eswine draws from C.H Spurgeon, 'the Prince of Preachers' experience to encourage us. What Spurgeon found in his darkness can serve as a light in our own darkness. Zack Eskwine brings you here, not a self-help guide, rather 'a handwritten note of one who wishes you well.'
  
  











  



  
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.

David Robertson

Christian Focus, 2014

In response to the shout of "God is not Great" by the late Christopher Hitchens, David shows us why Jesus is God and is Great.

It is an invitation to ponder the Incarnation, and a God who was please to dwell with us. ...

Melissa B. Kruger

If God Already Knows Why Pray?
Douglas F. Kelly

Douglas Kelly is a distinguished theologian - he is well qualified to guide us both as a teacher and a fellow traveller, sharing his own setbacks and blessings. One of the biggest questions about prayer is not 'How do you do it?' but rather 'Do we know who we are speaking to?'
