Strength for the Weary
Derek Thomas

Are you weary, fellow pilgrims? Then let the ordained writer, Isaiah, speak to you in graphic terms through Dr Thomas, especially from chapters 40-46. Upon receipt of this book, I soon became engrossed. In keeping with its title, my own…

A Good Old Age
Derek Prime

As I am approaching my 90s, this excellent book came into my hands at an apposite time. I also live near seaside beach huts and, as these are pictured on the book cover, found that fond memories were stirred. I…

Thirty Thousand Days – the journey home to God
Catherine Morgan

As I began to read the preface of this book, I was reminded of A.W. Tozer’s The pursuit of God. At first I felt overwhelmed by the rapid pace of the writing. Gradually, I began to appreciate its thrust and,…

The book that made your world — how the Bible created the soul of western civilization
Vishal Mangalwadi

This learned Indian philosopher and Christian was unknown to me until recently. It was a surprise to discover this title with its glowing comments and reviews, so I ordered a copy. I was delighted to have read it and am…

‘For their rock is not as our rock’
Daniel Strange

This excellent book (published under the Apollos imprint) begins with an autographical chapter, ‘in the spirit and on the shoulders of J. H. Bavinck’. This is followed by a copy of a speech from Max Muller, delivered before the British…
