If the modern world can be characterised by one thing it is probably the enormous increase in the number of words around – but that increase has also been accompanied by a seemingly corresponding decrease in understanding. It is the irony of the information age that instead of bringing clarity it has raised uninformed opinion to the same level as truth.
The church has also not been faultless. Rather than discuss ideas in order to come to some settled agreement, the church has been characterised as trying to make words mean different things in order to accommodate differences.
But the church should be a beacon of light to the world. The church has the words of eternal life.
J. I. Packer is a master wordsmith. He is also gifted with the ability of showing where truth lies in complicated reasoning. These skills combine to make Words from God a fascinating read – and a life-changing one.
The 18 words are Death, Devil, Election, Faith, Fellowship, Grace, Holiness, Justification, Lord, Mediator, Mortification, Reconciliation, Regeneration, Revelation, Sanctification, Scripture, Sin & World.

Jim Packer is named by Time Magazine as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals alive. He is the Board of Governor’s Professor of Theology at Regent College, Vancouver, BC, Canada.


Why Jesus?: The Continuing Relevance of Jesus in the 21st CenturyAuthor(s): Geoff McIlrath

Why Jesus? For some his name is a swear-word. For others his cross is a fashion accessory or a lucky charm. For many Jesus Christ is considered irrelevant in a world that has ‘moved on’. Contemporary attitudes reveal much indifference and ignorance towards him. Why Jesus? Challenges that consensus. To trust and follow Jesus still makes perfect sense. Take a fresh look at the one who claimed to be the Son of God and Saviour of sinners.


Spirit Empowered MissionAuthor(s): Arturo G. Azurdia III

In an age which screams for tolerance, the Gospel is seen as intolerably rigid – Christ can be one way, but not the way. In an effort to be more ‘culturally relevant’, the church is in danger of compromising – substituting the Gospel for the more palatable, non-confrontational road of social reforms. Being good citizens has become a politically correct beast, devouring the core of the church.

Spirit Empowered Mission opens up Acts 1-2, homing in on the real mission and purpose Christ has given the church: reaching the lost.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748) is one of the best-known Hymn-Writers in the History. He wrote over 700 hymns including the well-known “When I survey the Wondrous Cross”, “O God, our help in ages past” and “Jesus shall reign where’er the sun” – hymns which are still sung to this day. Brought up in a non-conformist church and family, Isaac Watts knew what it was to be a pastor whilst also battling prolonged periods of illness. Leading a life, that like us all, was not without difficulty or controversy, he was able to write Hymns of almost unparalleled depth and beauty, though they were often remained unappreciated by his own congregation. This fascinating study considers his life, writings and continuing influence on Christians today, in a way that will illuminate and inspire.
