  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

The Bible makes big claims for itself. But do those claims stand up? Aren’t the stories just legends? Hasn’t the information been corrupted over time? Isn’t the Bible full of mistakes? And isn’t it culturally outdated?

Barry Cooper’s book, Can I trust the Bible? ... is a good introduction to the topics of biblical authorship, authority, reliability, readability and more.

When Jesus walked the earth, he cast out demons and had powerful encounters with the devil. But who exactly is the devil, and where did he come from? And what is he up to in the world today?

This short, readable book explains clearly and simply what we can say with certainty from the Bible and Satan, demons and evil spirits and is suitable for all Christians, especially those who are struggling with questions about Satan.

In his great little book, Mike McKinley tell us that the Devil is real, ugly, dangerous and defeated. I've got lots of extra copies to use with others!

How Can I be sure?

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Many Christians experience times of doubt and uncertainty. At various times we can ask: Does God love me? Am I really a Christian? - and even: Is there a God at all?! This short, readable book unpacks the difference between good and bad doubt, shows us where it comes from and how to deal with it in ourselves and others. It explains clearly and simply the liberating reality of what the Bible tells us about doubt, assurance and the Christian life.

Definitely one that I will be recommending to others. It’s clear and simple, without being simplistic; it’s empathic and it uses the Bible well. The author understands that doubt is a complex beast, displayed in a variety of forms, and arising from many different causes.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Christians believe that history is moving towards a dramatic conclusion—that one day Jesus Christ will return in glory to judge the living and the dead. But there seem to be so many different views about how this will happen, and when it will take place. How can we make sense of it all?

Is Forgiveness Really Free?

  • Author: Michael Jensen
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 80

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

We're saved by the free gift of God - but how free is that gift when our lives are demanded in return? Many Christians are confused by the relationship between the grace of God, and the role of laws and commands in the Christian life. What does it mean to live a life of grace? How does grace help us grow? And are we "once saved always saved?" In this short, readable book, Michael Jensen explores the Bible's teaching on these important questions and delivers some surprising conclusions.

This little book grapples with the issues of grace and the law. It is written fairly simply so would be useful for a new Christian hitting these issues for the first time.

Is God Anti-gay?

  • Author: Sam Allberry
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

It's the hot topic of the moment. Christians, the church and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality. And there is growing hostility towards those who hold a different view to the culture’s. So, is God homophobic? And how do we relate to both Christians and non-Christians who experience same-sex attraction?

In this short, simple book, Sam Allberry wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures. Drawing on his own experience, he offers a positive and liberating way forward through the debate.

Is God Anti-Gay is filled with biblical teaching and pastoral wisdom. Sam writes as a same-sex attracted Christian who does not experience his life as impoverished or sub-human. I am delighted to recommend this book.

Is Hell for Real?

  • Author: Erik Raymond
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

The word Hell conjures up all kinds of nightmares in people's minds. But also presents a difficulty for many Christians. How can a God who the Bible says literally "is love" condemn anyone to an eternity of torment? Will punishment be eternal? Is Hell for real?

In this short, accessible book, pastor and author Erik Raymond reviews this important subject for everyone with pastoral warmth and biblical clarity.

This a topic that I have grappled with time and again. This book – actually any Christian book on the subject of hell – makes for uncomfortable reading. However, as it is part of the short, readable series it is a great place to start unpacking this topic that is often shied away from.

  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

We all have questions about death. Despite the strong assurance the Bible gives us about life beyond the grave, Christians are often troubled by other questions. What will happen on the day of judgment? Will we have bodies in heaven? Will there be rewards?

Marcus Nodder brings clarity to an area where many Christians are confused, and shows that there is much that we can say for sure from the Bible. Highly accessible and suitable for all Christians.

This title – in the series ‘Questions Christians ask’ – is aimed at sustaining and encouraging the believer in their future hope, and challenging the seeker. Practical related questions such as ‘Are ghosts for real?’ and ‘Cremation or burial?’ are addressed in turn at the end of each chapter, and plentiful quotes from diverse sources make the whole very readable.

What exactly are we? The modern world has many answers to that question, each of which has consequences for the choices we make about our own life and the lives of others.

In this short, accessible book, Mark Meynell wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said in the scriptures about key questions, such as when does life begin, where do our souls come from, and what sets humans apart?

Where Was God When that Happened?

  • Author: Christopher Ash
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

This is a warm, pastorally hearted guide to the Bible's teaching on God's sovereignty. Christopher Ash faces these questions head on, without flinching at any of the difficulties. First he looks at six different ways people have answered this question — both as Christians and from other religions and none. He then reveals the Bible's answer: the revelation of God's character and purposes throughout history.

Christopher Ash's book on God's sovereignty is exactly what readers of his books would expect: clear, succinct, and written with a charming simplicity that yet rests upon profound theology. Using examples from everyday pastoral ministry, he provides biblical answers to the kind of questions which all believers ask and also offers firm responses to the various common errors and mistakes which people make concerning such matters as God's providence, evil, and suffering. This is a great book to have on your church book table, to give away, and, of course, to read for yourself.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Why Bother with Church?

  • Author: Sam Allberry
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

The church has an image problem. It is widely viewed in the world at large as being outdated, boring, irrelevant and filled with backbiting hypocrites. How different that picture is to how the Bible talks about the new family that Jesus has gathered. It is a precious bride, a sparkling jewel, a lifeboat for forgiven sinners that is precious and holy; nurturing and warm; filled with truth, friendship and all embracing, forgiving love.

Sam Allberry understands the collision between these two views, and how, even as Christian believers, we can lose sight of how truly wonderful church is and should be, and what a privilege it is to be part of, and to serve. In this brief accessible but thorough guide to church, Sam outlines what church is and why we need it. And how, when we have got it wrong, we can move closer to what a true church should be.

This book about the church is a gift to the church. It's clear, winsome, and needed, reminding us of the great reality of the body of Christ called to live, worship, and minister together in his name until he comes. I'm grateful for this biblical call to remember who we are and what, by God's mercy, we get to be and do as his gathered people.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die?

  • Author: Marcus Nodder
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Our culture ignores it. Many within the church seem to be almost embarrassed by it. Many others understand that the cross of Christ is at the very heart of Christian faith and life.

This short, readable book explains clearly and simply what the Bible, and Jesus himself, says about the cross, and how Christians should understand it today.

One of the things I especially appreciated about this book is the clarity and simplicity of illustrations helping us to grasp the significance of Jesus’ death. Nodder uses stories, images, and ideas to help us understand the importance of the cross. For some, like myself, who’ve heard about the death of Jesus again and again, this book will offer you a fresh insight into the absolute heart of God’s love.
