    Thinky Things volume 1

  • An exposition of the kingdom of God with reference to the time of the end and the age to come. Like Christendom Astray, this book also emerged as a result of a series of lectures (given in 1848) dealing with the Hope of Israel. It sets out in systematic form Bible teaching about sin, death and reconciliation, and the purpose of God to fill the earth with His glory as the waters cover the sea.

  • This book is based on articles that first appeared in Faith Alive! It offers practical advice for those contemplating marriage, and for those already married. It deals thoughtfully with the scriptural principles of marriage, and the threats that can arise both from within and without. Throughout this delightful book, the “great mystery” is always evident – that marriage speaks to us about “Christ and the church” (Ephesians 5:32). Here are exhortations for all who wish to be his disciples.

  • Setting the standard in moral behaviour.

  • Over the past 200 years, criticism of the scriptures has reached new levels. Doubts about their historical accuracy, about the origins of the early texts and the reliability of their transmission have all been used to deny the power of the Bible message. The author considers some of the major criticisms and shows the value of believing the Bible’s own claim to be the word of God Himself.

  • A review of scripture’s consistent teaching on man and woman in the purpose of God, beginning in Genesis, and concluding in Revelation – the order in which God has chosen to reveal Himself, His Son & His will for us.

  • This new title reaffirms the traditional Christadelphian position on the hope of Israel. The book is in three parts, the first, written by Brother Robert Roberts in the 1860s … …was his response to those who thought the Jews’ relationship with God had ended. Looking back we can see the accuracy with which his Bible-based expectations for Israel were fulfilled. Part two is a series of articles from editors of The Christadelphian, showing their reactions to world events involving God’s people, their work on behalf of impoverished Jews, and their constant commitment to this key doctrine. Finally, we see God at work in history through the speeches, diaries and essays of those who, knowingly or not, made the events of 1948 happen.

  • First Principles Bible Marking Course

  • In the preface of the first edition, the author writes: “Looking at the Bible as divine, the author is concerned to know and exhibit the Bible doctrine of providence only, believing that outside the Bible channel, we can gather no reliable notions of providence whatever, but lose ourselves in the mist of speculation and uncertainty. Inside the Bible channel we get definite notions – clear light and valuable guidance on all matters affecting human life as at present troublously exhibited on earth, whether as regards individual well-being or national development.”

  • The concept of God manifestation has always been crucial to a complete understanding of a wide variety of Bible passages. In this easy-to-read introduction to the subject, Brother Jason shows how God reveals himself through the angels, through His Son and through the faithful saints. Each chapter has appended review questions to consider.

  • Several times in the past, God has intervened in human affairs and the outcome has always been dramatic and hugely important.
    He is about to do the same again; this time on a bigger scale. The whole world is going to be changed and a new society will be formed out of the wreckage of the old one.
