  • In The Genesis of Blessings, Andrew Walker lays out a lifetime's love of Genesis with a unique perspective on its structure, key themes and connections. He shows us how the book of beginnings opens with the Lord as Creator of heaven and earth, and tells of the first bridegroom and his bride, of sin and its condemnation, and of the great victory promised over all the earth through the Lord Jesus Christ. Above all, we discover that Genesis, more than any other book, is a book of blessings, where the promises of God become the foundation for all that follows. Readers will be excited and challeneged by the magnificent canvas on which the Almighty paints: the promises made, the people prepared, the earth waiting to be filled with His glory.
  • Some passages in scripture are difficult to understand or seem to be at variance with other passages. God is not the author of confusion and so an attempt must be made to explain the passage and then ensure that this explanation accords with the rest of scripture. As with a jigsaw puzzle, a piece may fit but if it does not harmonise with the overall picture then it evidently is the wrong piece. This book attempts to provide explanations for some of the puzzling passages in the Bible. Watch the author introduce his book on YouTube!
  • OVER the years many fine Bible students have contributed articles to The Christadelphian. Some of the series, and occasionally collections of single articles, have subsequently been produced as books, but there is much material lying largely forgotten that deserves the attention of a new generation of readers. The availability of the magazine in electronic form has made it far easier to search through past issues, but it can still be a time consuming exercise to collect together all the articles in a series. The Study Series from The Christadelphian addresses that issue, and it is hoped that readers will find these additional e-booklets helpful and convenient to use. The twentieth one, First Things First (Genesis 1-11), reproduces eleven articles under this heading by Brother Mark Vincent which were published in the magazine from March 2004 to January 2005.
  • The Acts of the Apostles forms a bridge between the Gospels and the Epistles. Imagine a New Testament without Acts! We would have no context in which to understand the origin of the Epistles, those letters from the apostles addressed to ecclesias, the foundations of which would be a mystery and the lives of authors mostly unknown. Acts traces the progress of the spread of the Gospel from the initial proclamation at Pentecost by Peter and the Twelve in Jerusalem to the arrival of Paul in Rome. We are told nothing of the “acts” of most of the apostles. Nine of the twelve are not heard of individually after Chapter 1. In reality, Acts gives an account of the early work of Peter and, to a much lesser extent John, whole the greater part is devoted to Paul, who was not one of the original Twelve. This scolarly yet readily accessible study of the Acts of the Apostles takes the reader sequentially through the book. Studies are aided by the use of maps, tables, sixty “digressions”, and colour photographs depicting many of the locations visited by the apostles. Watch the author introduce his book on YouTube!
  • Provides a detailed study of the Law, with many insights for those who wish to understand it more fully.
  • This work was first published in 1880 as a result of lectures given in the spring of that year. The first lecture contains this statement of intent: “The object of the present course of lectures is to exhibit in a simple way the meaning of this (at first sight) apparently inscrutable book of Revelation.”
  • With full colour illustrations throughout, this visual treat is for all those who wish they had been there to see the spectacle of the revelation that was given to the Apostle John.Perhaps you find that when you read Revelation you struggle to picture the visions. If so this new beautifully illustrated book will help stimulate imagination and insight when reading that very special message from the Lord Jesus which promises to bless every reader. The author doesn’t aim to explain the Lord’s visual message, but presents his own depictions of what John might have seen, explaining how he produced them and who was involved, and compares his visual presentations with the attempts of other illustrators, like Albrecht Dürer, who have themselves sought to fire the imagination of readers in previous centuries. This book is a visual treat and is beautifully produced, but its real value is that it will be an ideal companion for whichever interpretation you want to explore. The Thirteen Lectures on the Apocalypse by Brother Robert Roberts would be an excellent text to read alongside, image by image, and some of Brother Roberts’ views are picked up within the text accompanying the illustrations. Brother David’s book is not an end in itself – its aim is to encourage readers to look afresh at the Book of Revelation, using all their faculties.

    A series of articles first published in The Christadelphian (1998 – 2000), published as book form.

    “We can view the books of Chronicles as documents preparing a people for the Saviour to come. Like the Gospel accounts of Matthew and Luke, they commence with genealogical information, and continue by describing the growth and power of privileged classes in Judah who quickly moved away from relying on God’s word, killing the prophets and stoning those who were sent to them from God.”

    In these words the book is recommended as a help to the reading of the books of Chronicles.
