Perfect for anyone wanting to better know the history of their belief. This small book will open up classic ideas of Grace that have stood the test of time.

My First Book About God
Carine Mackenzie

Our chief purpose in life is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. God has revealed to us so much of his character and work in creation and providence and the Bible to help us to do this. We will never grasp the great extent of his being but we can enjoy the little that we do understand. We cannot see the beauty and wonder of the whole world but we can enjoy even the view of the garden from the kitchen window or simply the little bird in the sky. I pray that as you use this little book, you will see something of the wonder, majesty and glory of God. May this book help you to thank God for what he has told you about himself and then you will glorify and enjoy him. Carine MacKenzie's talent for retelling Bible stories has meant that children from all over the world have been given the opportunity to discover Jesus Christ for themselves. The first title written in the kitchen with the assistance of a basin of water has inspired the production of many other books. Carine's 150th book 365 Great Bible Stories was released in July 2011. She has sales of over 3 million books and lives in Inverness, Scotland.

Ordering Your Private World
Gordon Macdonald

God has a calling for every Christian. He has also added appropriate and varied giftings. So how come so few achieve their potential? People set themselves up for defeat by skimping on inner development: failing to deepen their understanding of call, they spread themselves too thin or drive themselves to burnout. Now refreshed with up-to-date examples and references, Gordon MacDonald's book encourages readers to borrow from the workplace proven time-management and planning skills in order to free up space for spiritual growth. He then suggests key subjects that need to be covered to attain to those qualities of peace, resourcefulness, focus and balance that have adorned the lives of saints past and present.

Devoted To God
Sinclair B. Ferguson

Christians are transformed by the renewing of their minds. They understand that in large measure how they think about the gospel will determine how they will live for God's glory. They learn to allow the word of God to do its own work, informing and influencing the way they think in order to shape the way they live. In a series of Scripture-enriched chapters Sinclair B. Ferguson's Devoted to God works out this principle in detail. It provides what he describes as "blueprints for sanctification"-an orderly exposition of central New Testament passages on holiness. Devoted to God thus builds a strong and reliable structural framework for practical Christian living. It stresses the foundational importance of fundamental issues such as union with Christ, the rhythms of spiritual growth, the reality of spiritual conflict, and the role of God's law. Here is a fresh approach to an always relevant subject, and a working manual to which the Christian can turn again and again for Biblical instruction and spiritual direction.

Helen Roseveare - On His Majesty's Service
Irene Howat

Helen Roseveare qualified as a doctor, packed up her life in England and set off to be a missionary in the Belgian Congo (now the Democratic Republic of Congo). She went there to set up hospitals and rural clinics and train national nurses to work in them. Her work often took Helen on long journeys through dense forests on roads that would make a fairground ride seem tame! After Congo became an independent country Helen's service was interrupted by the Simba Rebellion, during which she was held captive for several months. After some time of recovery Helen went back to the renamed 'Zaire' to serve the Lord by working with people there. In the years that followed she established a nurses' training college in the hope that the nurses', midwives and health workers who trained there would spread out through the vast northeast region of the country, taking the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ with them. Since returning to the UK, Helen has become well known as a conference speaker. Her experiences in Africa have been an encouragement to many and made her well known and loved throughout the world.
