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.



Taking the Bible at its WordAuthor(s): Paul Wells

God’s Word is the same yesterday, today and forever! God’s Complete Word still speaks to us today. It tells the story of God coming to us for our salvation. We are given the possibility to know God and what he did for us. We can find no way to climb up to God. Our only hope lies in movement from the other direction-God coming down to us. The Bible shows a God who reveals himself to his people in the Old Testament and by the coming of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.

Ecclesiastes is a book rich in literary artistry and multi-layered depths of spiritual meaning. Philip G. Ryken explores this wonderful Old Testament book, and reminds us again of the need to trust God with the questions, even when we do not have all the answers.

CHRISTIAN E-BOOK: Singing the Songs of JesusAuthor(s): Michael Lefebvre

The Psalms were composed for singing. In Old and New Testament times, and throughout Church history, congregations sung Psalms. Despite renewed interest in Psalmody, few books explain how the Psalms function as hymns for Christ-centred worship. Singing the Songs of Jesus fills that gap without shying away from difficulties, like the doubts and curses of the Psalms. This study shows why the Psalms are suited for Christian praise and how to use them for powerful and relevant worship.
