  • From the time when the scriptures came into existence, this book traces their preservation and translation to the present day. The author discusses the inspiration of the scriptures and the way the hand of God ensured that His word should be available to all generations.

  • The Gospel of John is unique among the gospels in that it contains no parables. Instead it contains 8 “signs”. These signs are miracles performed by Jesus that are presented by John in a way that highlights their deeper, symbolic significance. Glimpses of the Master examines these signs in detail. As well as containing strong exposition, the book is written in order to bring the incidents to life, thereby helping the reader feel a stronger connection with the character of the Lord Jesus.

  • Edward Gibbon’s The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (first published in six volumes 1776-89) has long been used by Christadelphian expositors, and is in the wider world still regarded as a classic text.  The Decline and Fall is, however, very long. For those busy in ecclesial life, Bro. Henstock’s book provides a useful summary of sections most relevant for Bible students. Gibbon is not taken uncritically however. He was not religious and was firmly of an Enlightenment mindset. Bro. Henstock points out instances of where this intellectual background provokes a different view on history to that which might be held by a Bible believer. Topics covered include Gibbon the man; Gibbon the historian; Christadelphians and Gibbon; Gibbon’s broader influence; Gibbon and the Bible; Gibbon on the prophecy of Daniel; Gibbon on the early spread of Christianity; Gibbon on the return of Christ; Gibbon and the corruption of the early ecclesia; Gibbon on the Trinity and Gibbon on Roman Catholicism as the successor to the Roman Empire.

  • This useful booklet is intended to aid younger brethren who may have to lead a funeral for the first time. It covers the practical details, as well as the spiritual needs, both of the family and the congregation, and throughout encourages us to commit what we do to the Lord:

    “What are the qualities required in order to perform this important task? Without a doubt the first essential is to have an attitude which says: ‘Lord, I have a very important work to do today and I will need your help to do it’ – the task is committed to God in prayer.”

  • Verse by verse study on Luke chapers 1 and 2.

  • The 18 chapters of this book are based on the genealogies in 1 Chronicles 2–8, where a great deal of detailed information is given about the families of the tribes of Israel. Read as a continuous narrative, the lists of names in these early chapters of Chronicles can serve to overload the reader with undigested information, and the valuable significance of what is recorded there can easily be missed. Bro. Tony Benson links the list to other parts of Scripture in order to bring the names to life, and to find exhortations by so doing.

  • To quote Bro. Roberts in the book itself: “The history to be set forth is the history of a work rather than of a man. For this reason
