  • The path we walk as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ and as children of God is described as the “narrow way” – and with good reason.  We regularly encounter snares, obstacles and potholes as we patiently navigate the rocky road.  Yet there is also much light and beauty to enjoy as we make that journey. An A-Z of Discipleship considers the many and varied aspects of discipleship – from cultivating acceptance to showing zeal.  Down-to-earth, God-centred and thought-provoking, each chapter will both comfort and challenge the reader. With questions for consideration throughout, this book can help with personal devotion or be used as a basis for group study.

  • This book examines fifteen different Bible characters and seeks to provide an insight into the hearts and minds of these men and women who move through the word of God in such a fascinating way.

  • In any family a new birth is the cause of great happiness. This is followed by the expectation and deep desire that the recent arrival will develop and grow into a fine adult. Plans are almost always made by the family to help this process along. It is no different with God’s family. Spiritual newborns need to learn what it means to be a member of God’s family and how to contribute. After baptism there is a need to grow and mature into the measure of the Lord Jesus. This book considers basic principles for Christlike living and offers some practical advice for new brothers and sisters to help them grow up into Christ.

  • “Godly discipleship is never a natural characteristic in man: it has to be learned, and it has to be practised. Like a skilled musician, the disciple can become rusty if he grows indolent or lethargic, or if he fails to practise his dicipleship every minute of every day.

  • If you would like to appreciate anew the Lord Jesus as your Messiah, or improve your discipleship, or receive practical guidance in the matter of prayer, then Speaking to the Heart will be of benefit.  Through three individual themes the author blends sensitive Bible exposition with devotion and encouragement for all those interested in the things of the spirit today.

  • “Godly discipleship is never a natural characteristic in man: it has to be learned, and it has to be practised. Like a skilled musician, the disciple can become rusty if he grows indolent or lethargic, or if he fails to practise his dicipleship every minute of every day.”

    The fourth edition of this readable and very practical book provides much food for thought and action in the life of the disciple.

  • A collection of over 40 articles from a former editor of The Christadelphian. One of the articles is entitled “Return to the centre” which is the essential theme of the second part of the book.

  • Solemn Moments of Remembrance

  • Throughout the Bible’s long and colossal history men and women have been assigned different but complementary roles and responsibilities. Beginning with Genesis the Bible depicts God calling, appointing, anointing and communicating with men as leaders and teachers in the Old and New Testaments. Women were called to the different but equally important role of support without which God’s purpose could not have been achieved. From the second half of the 20th century on, this understanding of Bible teaching has been challenged. It is claimed that the Bible teaches that women can perform the same role traditionally undertaken by men. Is this challenge to the traditional understanding valid? This book examines that question.

  • This selection of exhortations is drawn from the large legacy of notes left by the late Brother Harry Tennant. They are representative of the man who with his spiritual insight and wealth of experience could advise others on the matter of exhorting:

    “The word of exhortation is no set speech, no display of oratory, no occasion for self-preening or exhibition of a good memory or a discerning taste for good English. The world has enough of that. Rather it is that ‘through comfort of the scriptures we might have hope’. Let the brother seek to follow Paul in his words when he ‘exhorted them all that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord’: follow him in his true service for Christ when he comforted ‘the souls of the disciples and exhorted them to continue in the faith’.”

  • Discipleship is all about following. Each disciple serves the Lord while living among those who generally have no regard for him, and whose motivations are often contrary to the principles he taught. The material in this book considers the importance of this scriptural theme as it is expanded, mainly in the writings of the apostles. This book presents them in the hope that they will assist every disciple to follow the Lord Jesus more closely, until he comes in power and glory to establish his Father’s kingdom.

  • This work is concerned with one predominant idea: the working of God’s influence in the lives of His people; the way in which He, willing and doing of His good pleasure, has drawn close to them in the everyday experience of their living. Mysteriously, imperceptibly, incisively, He has drawn close. He has checked, He has guided, He has led, He has drawn, He has covered, He has protected, chastened, for love’s sake. In short, He has moved in their experience in such a way that by their response to Him they have become God-governed.
