God Looked Down

God’s gracious rescue shines bright against the dark backdrop of man’s rebellion.

Why We Must Represent Christ Correctly in our Evangelism

Thankfully, the gospel message doesn’t end with the goodness of God and the sinfulness of man. That wouldn’t be good news. But, in fact, God has done something about our awful condition. God sent his Son to live for us and die for us and rise again for us. Now there is a way for […]

How Misrepresenting Jesus Harms the Poor

Between my time church planting in Brazil and my work now in Edinburgh in one of Scotland’s most deprived housing schemes—a mixture of social housing and low-income homeowners—I have been on the receiving end of a lot of short-term missions teams. And while I appreciate the help, I have noticed over the years that a […]

A Book That Has the Skin of a Mole and the Bite of a Lion

I got given this cheeky little 126-page number this week by a visiting American. I didn’t know him all that well prior to his visit but I grew to like the big fella by the time he left. He has also made a friend of my girls for life after coming armed with Pretzel M […]

Helping Broken People Connect to the Love of Jesus

Counselling is big business in the Western World. Never has a people that has had so much materially suffered from such a range of psychological problems. Thanks to the work of groups such as CCEF, Christians have more access to solid, biblical counselling material than ever before. I was looking forward to this book, particularly […]

Learning To Walk With Jesus On Our Journey Through Life

Andrew M Davis is a pastor I know through my links with 9Marks. I can’t remember if I bought the book or it was given to me (more likely) at T4G. Regardless, it’s written by a man with many years of experience in the ministry, and you can tell. Some books I just churn through […]

Jesus and the Church, the Best Hope for the Poor

There is so much being said about the poor. We should be involved in this project or that, each one telling me, or at least implying, that if I don’t, I’m uncaring and heartless. So much of it is written as “them and us”. History clearly shows that much of it quickly becomes compromised on the […]

How Far is too Far in Living for Jesus?

What do we do with the words of the Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 10:39? “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” The context is sending out the 12 to proclaim the ‘kingdom of heaven’ (10:7). They were sent out as‘sheep amongst wolves’ (10:16) […]

The Pastor's Justification; Why You Would Be Dumb Not to Read this Book

So, I’ve discovered Jared C. Wilson quite late. Up until recently, he wasn’t a person who had entered my radar. I then saw his name on a Matt Chandler book (Explicit Gospel, I think) and then one day, completely out of the blue, he emailed me to write one of those thing-a-ma-jigs people write on […]

Jesus is Great, But is Magnificent Obsession a Good Book?

This is David Robertson's follow up book to his immensely (and more) enjoyable “Dawkins Letters”. His subtext is Why Jesus IS Great and, I have to say, it is a masterfully (and mercifully) simple (in the non-critical sense!) work of apologetics. This is how you make highfalutin philosophy and theology accessible to mere mortals like […]
