40 DAYS, 40 BITES: A FAMILY GUIDE TO PRAY FOR THE WORLD

Simply superb! If you missed this, you’ve missed a treat. This is Operation World Lite for all the family. Colourful and informative, a really outstanding package which deserves to do well. The maps, charts and prayer points enable adults and children to learn together whilst praying for the world.

THE NEW RULES FOR LOVE, SEX AND DATING

Love, Sex & Dating

I heard Andy Stanley preach at his mega-church in Atlanta last year. He is the son of the better-known Charles Stanley. Above all, Andy Stanley came across as sensible, realistic and down-to-earth, with none of the usual trappings of American superstar preachers. This book deserves to do well.

FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS: PILGRIM TRAVELLERS GUIDE TO THE HOLY LAND

Despite the perceived and sometimes real dangers, people still travel to Israel. I went there last year and I’m sure would have benefitted from this new BRF guide. The truth is that, alongside a Rough Guide and the Lonely Planet, you need to take a spiritual guidebook as well. This should be the one.

ON ROCK OR SAND: FIRM FOUNDATIONS FOR BRITAIN’S FUTURE

The Archbishop of York always seems such a joyful, solid character, and a far better role model for this country than so many of our politicians. In this book, John Sentamu looks at the essential values required to build a just, sustainable and compassionate society for the Britain of the future.

In God's Hands

IN GOD’S HANDS - ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY’S LENT BOOK 2015

At the heart of Archbishop’s Tutu’s faith is an unshakeable belief in the infinite value of every individual. This, coupled with his unwavering declaration of the love of God for everyone regardless of colour or faith, makes this paperback a profound reflection for the forthcoming season of Lent.

PRESENCE AND ENCOUNTER

I met David Benner at a counselling conference in Singapore. He had the most extraordinary impact on my life, introducing me to the constancy and beauty of God’s presence. I view that moment as a clear spiritual turning point. Anything written by Dr Benner is well worth reading – very slowly!

LOVE SO AMAZING: 40 REFLECTIONS ON MY FAVOURITE HYMNS

Love so Amazing



 I love hymns. I collect books of hymn stories. Hymns are in danger of being lost to our culture. BBC TV’s Songs of Praise has probably done more than most churches in keeping hymns alive in the national consciousness. Presenter Pam Rhodes presents her personal choice in this small hardback.

WHEN GOD BREAKS IN

Yes, it’s the same Michael Green - back again with a fascinating book of how Christianity is thriving and growing around the world. For me, the interest lay in his chapter of how spiritual renewal came to Singapore. Sub-titled ‘Revival can happen again’, this is truly a faith-building and timely book.

Miracles

 MIRACLES

Sub-titled, ‘What they are, why they happen and how they can change your life’. Is this rather hefty hardback the definitive work on Miracles? You must judge for yourself, but it comes with some weighty endorsements, and attempts to navigate the middle ground between enthusiasm and scepticism.

 THE WISDOM HOUSE 

The Wisdom House



Hodder Faith do produce attractive books. This title is elegantly packaged and makes a lovely gift. I enjoyed this book of ‘life-lessons’. As a grandparent, so much of what Rob Parsons writes resonated. This is vintage Parsons: thought provoking, faith-full and wise. This really is a most significant book.
