Thinking Through Creation: Genesis 1 and 2 as Tools of Cultural Critique

The author’s intention was to ‘write the book that I would have wanted to read as an undergraduate student’ (p.137). With both panache and conviction, he has done precisely that. The book is an antidote to the disposable, woolly thinking…

Do you pray? A question for everybody (J C Ryle series)

What’s Age Got to Do with it?: Living out God’s purpose at all ages
Louise Morse

We are all familiar with ageist attitudes, remarks and jokes. We may even have smiled at them. They are generally thought to be acceptable rather than offensive, although remarks seen as sexist, racist, feminist, or against ‘British values’ may soon…

30-day devotional – Romans 5-8
John R. W. Stott

My hopes were high: a much-loved author on much-loved chapters. But I was disappointed. First, because of the book’s brevity. Each of its 30 daily readings is compressed into two small pages, with room for only a fleeting half-thought which…
