The Westminster Standards for Today
Kevin Bidwell

It is probably true to say that the Westminster Assembly’s Confession of Faith and Larger and Shorter Catechisms have become the best known but least read subordinate standards in Presbyterian churches the world over. Indeed, late 19th and early 20th…

In the Year of Our Lord: Reflections on Twenty Centuries of Church History

Counting the Cost
David & Shirley Donovan

For 15 years these British missionaries have been at the heart of New Foundations, an evangelical medical mission. They had been serving the Lord giving spiritual and medical help to local communities in the Niger Delta, one of the world’s…

Exalted Above The Heavens: the risen and ascended Christ (New Studies in Biblical Theology)
Peter Orr

The Bible devotes a great deal of space to the Christ of the past. Through Matthew, Mark, Luke and John we learn of his pre-existence, his identity as God the Son, his incarnation, his early life in Nazareth, his public…

Ten Indictments Against the Modern Church
Paul Washer

The ‘Author’s Prayer’ sets the tone: ‘Let the truth go forward. Let men be changed’ (p.viii). The directness in the prayer is replicated in the exposition. The author is a voice crying to recall the church to its true mission.…

The Ten Commandments: What They Mean, Why They Matter, and Why We Should Obey Them (Foundational Tools for Our Faith)

Come and Behold Him: Christmas Through Different Eyes
David J. Randall

I found this little book both refreshing and stimulating. In such a short compass, we see the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ through the eyes of fourteen characters in the Bible. These are helpfully grouped in time sequence, beginning…

My Sunflower Girl
Dyfan Williams

This is a heartfelt but reflective account of events leading to the death of Dyfan Williams’s 10-year-old daughter Megan, and the subsequent slow road to recovery. The reader is invited to walk with him and Caroline through their personal valley…

CH Spurgeon Forgotten Public Lectures: Forgotten early articles, sermons and public lectures
Terence Peter Crosby

Where do you start when reviewing C. H. Spurgeon? And is it permissible to rate the ‘Prince of Preachers’ at anything but five stars? Perhaps the key factor in assessing this collection is to decide on the intended readership. Everything…

From the Psychiatrist’s Chair: Selected Works of Dr Monty Barker
Monty Barker

This is a collection of essays by a Christian psychiatrist who originally delivered them as lectures, sermons and papers in different contexts. There are twenty chapters, each of about ten pages, divided into different sections, reflecting its disparate genesis: the…

Grace Defined and Defended: What a 400-Year-Old Confession Teaches Us about Sin, Salvation, and the Sovereignty of God
Kevin DeYoung

This year sees the anniversary of the Synod of Dort which concluded its deliberations in May 1619. Much has been written about this, mainly from a Reformed perspective which rightly views its findings as worthy of being set alongside other…

Hidden Evil — A biblical and pastoral response to domestic abuse
Eryl Davies

If only this book wasn’t needed; sadly, it is. Domestic abuse is far more common in our churches than many realise. Hidden Evil is an apt title. Dr Davies has compiled stories from sufferers that help us understand how abuse…
