The Cambridge Seven The True Story of Ordinary Men Used in no Ordinary wayAuthor(s): John Pollock
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (June 16-17)

Harold Schofield, a brilliant Oxford doctor who had laboured as a missionary in China for many years, was on his knees praying, ‘Lord, give me missionaries from British Universities to help in China’.

The day he died, D. E. Hoste applied to Hudson Taylor for mission work in the China Inland Mission (Now Overseas Missionary Fellowship). Schofield’s prayer was answered as seven Cambridge students volunteered to leave behind cosy lives of wealth and privilege to serve God in whatever way they were led.

These seven inspired thousands of others to think seriously of missionary service. Included among them was C.T. Studd, captain of England and the finest cricketer of his day – if he could give all that up, then so could anyone!

The story of these seven are an inspiration that God can take people and use them in incredible ways – if they are willing to serve.

As Pollock says in his book ‘Theirs is the story of ordinary men, and thus may be repeated’. Will it be repeated in your life?


Salvation by CrucifixionAuthor(s): Philip G. Ryken
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (June 9-10)
Buy Now!

Philip G. Ryken celebrates Easter with this thoughtful guidebook to understanding the cross. Seven answers to seven questions explain the why and the wherefore of the cross for a Biblical faith and a Christian life.

Ryken covers the necessity of the cross for salvation; the offense it gives to Jews, Gentiles, and any moral individual; the peace it brings to those who trust in Christ; the power it has to achieve God’s loving, saving purpose; the triumph it wins over sin, death, and the judgment of God; the humility it displays in the character of Jesus; and the boast it becomes for every believer.


Plight of Man and the Power of GodAuthor(s): Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (June 2-3)
Buy Now!

“We must rouse ourselves and realize afresh that though our Gospel is timeless and changeless, it nevertheless is always contemporary. We must meet the present situation and we must speak a word to the world that none else can speak.”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was born in Wales. He was a dairyman’s assistant, a political enthusiast, debater, and chief clinical assistant to Sir Thomas Harder, the King of England’s Physician. But at the age of 27 he gave up a most promising medical career to become a preacher. He had a far-reaching influence ministry at Westminster Chapel in London, England from 1938-68. His published works have had an unprecedented circulation, selling in millions of copies.

“What we have in these five expositions is the Gospel explained with great clarity and hope. Even today I used these timeless chapters with a non-Christian friend who is seeking to understand Christianity. I commend these messages to you.”
(from the foreword)
Mark Dever ~ Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

Is There Anybody Out ThereAuthor(s): Mez McConnell 
Publisher:
Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (May 26-27)
Buy Now!

Since the publication of ‘A child called “it”‘ by Dave Pelzer there hasn’t been a story like this. But this is not just another harrowing story about an excruciating childhood and the ravages on a life it produces. The difference is that Mez not only escaped from his ‘trial by parent’ but he discovered a hope that has transformed his life. He in turn has helped others find hope in their lives. Mez’s story is told with a frankness and wit that hides much of the pain and despair that was his everyday experience. Nevertheless, although his story at times may sicken you, his first brushes with the faith that restored him will make you laugh out loud! Mez’s life involved abuse, violence, drugs, thieving and prison – but you don’t have to fall as far as him in order to climb out of the traps in your life. Do you like happy endings? Mez still suffers from his experiences but you’ll be amazed at how far you can be restored from such a beginning. (more…)


Planting for the GospelAuthor(s): Graham Beynon

To some planting a church seems an impossible dream; others have entirely unrealistic ideals of how easily it can be done. This helpful guide recognises that no church starts out the same and there are several different models that can be followed. Coming from an author with real experience and including real-world case studies from a wide range of settings, this is a tremendously practical and helpful introduction that will lay the foundations for a group of Christian people, a church, to be committed to one another; praying, learning and growing together; seeking to be healthy, flourishing and biblically grounded.

Graham Beynon has experience of church planting having planted the Avenue community church in Leicester. He is currently studying a PhD and acting as Course director for ‘Team’ (Training for East Anglia Ministry) and involved in church ministry in Cambridge. He is married to Charis and they have three children.


William Tyndale The Smuggler's Flame (Torchbearers)Author(s): Lori Rich
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (May 12-13)
Buy Now!

William Tyndale lived a life of adventure and danger, dodging the king’s men, fleeing from his enemies and meeting with smugglers in the dead of night. What brought a well-educated young English man to such a state? Was he an outlaw? Was he a thief? No – he was a Bible smuggler and a brave one at that.
Tyndale wanted other English speakers to be able to read God’s word in their own language but there were many who tried to put a stop to that.

However, Tyndale’s work was God’s work and it would not be stopped – even after Tyndale’s death. One day there was a translation of the bible in the English language and it lit a fire in people’s hearts that would not be put out.
Read and learn about how God wants us to be brave and courageous and to stand up for the Truth!
