This week I’m reading…

Pause – How to enjoy God, find hope & bear fruit through midlife and the menopause by Sarah Allen (10Publishing, 2024) I’m must admit to being rather dismissive when I first saw this book being publicised. I mean, really? Do we really have to have a Christian book about every stage of life… even the […]

Strength in Truth Conference

Last weekend (Saturday 15th June 2024) I spent an excellent day at the Strength in Truth Conference in Surrey with a well stocked bookstall. Described as ‘A strict baptist conference for young people’ this conference aims to provide a forum for young people to meet up and hear Biblical viewpoints on a wide variety of […]

This week I’m reading…

Covenant Foundations by Alec Motyer, published by Christian Focus Publications (2024) This is well written, and in as simple language as it can get when the topic is Covenant Theology! It gives some truly enlightening explanations of Bible passages. It traces the backbone of God’s covenants running through the whole Bible, and thus it confirms […]

An Open Response

A response to the article entitled ‘The Word of the Lord Endureth For Ever’ in the Friendly Companion for August 2023. The article contends that trousers are not to be worn by women on the basis of Deuteronomy 22:5, The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put […]

This week I’m reading…

Love the Ones Who Drive You Crazy: Eight Truths for Pursuing Unity in your Church by Jamie Dunlop We all know the familiar texts on the importance of brotherly love and unity in the church. But are we honest with ourselves about our commitment to this? Especially unity with ‘those people’ – the ones who, […]

Upcoming: The Scuttlebutt Letters

This is one to keep an eye out for – if you enjoy satire. Reminiscent of C S Lewis’ Screwtape Letters, Natalie Brand has cleverly written a series of letters from the Heart to the Tongue. The Heart strongly berates the Tongue for all manner of sly and malicious dealings demonstrating the many references in […]

Review Throwback: Caleb’s Lamb

We are so pleased to have this little book available again! When I read it to our children back in 2008 I found it powerful and moving. When I mentioned it recently to our (now adult) children they remembered it well and, most importantly, they remembered the message of the passover lamb and the principle […]

Consider Him by Robert Hawker

This little book of Meditations on the Sufferings and Death of the Lord Jesus Christ consists of 48 short pieces taken from Hawker’s The Poor Man’s Morning and Evening Portions. This extract is from Meditation 31 on the text ‘But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and […]

This week I’m reading…

Sermons by William Gadsby (Gospel Standard Publications, 1991) Many have testified to the Christ exalting nature of William Gadsby’s sermons. It is to these that I have turned this week, and this extract from a sermon on ‘The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad’ (Psalm 126:3) illustrates Gadsby’s forthright style. […]
