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

It is to be welcomed that EP Books has republished three of JC Ryle’s lesser-known short tracts. The subject of this one is a vital question: ‘Do you pray?’ As always, Ryle gets to the heart of the matter and…

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…

The Greatest Fight in the World: Spurgeon’s Final Manifesto
Charles H. Spurgeon

Here is a book which I have read many times over the years. I have never ceased to be both challenged and encouraged by its contents. In April 1891, Spurgeon gave what would be his final annual address to his…

History Revealed in Advance
Philip Parsons

This book is subtitled ‘Predictive prophecy in the Book of Daniel’. Daniel and Revelation are commonly misapplied by cults to justify their bizarre theories; such is not the case here. The author seeks to expound the prophetic passages of Daniel…

All That Is in God: Evangelical Theology and the Challenge of Classical Christian Theism
James E. Dolezal

James E. Dolezal has served the church well with this new book. In recent decades, there have been both subtle and overt attempts to reshape the doctrine of God for the church. This book attempts to recover lost ground by…

Daily Readings-the Early Church Fathers
Nick Needham

Although the fourth in a series of ‘Daily readings’ by Christian Focus, this one may be unique. I’ve never come across readings taken from the writings of the Early Church Fathers. There are many Christians (including ministers) for whom these…

Turning the Tide: Reclaiming Religious Freedom in the UK
Roy Mohon

This is a booklet that every Christian ought to make an hour or so to read. It distils so much of what is vital to the preservation of Christianity in our nation today and will save many hours of research…
