Unbeknown to many, expressions and sayings from the Bible have often permeated our daily life in a profound way – until the biblical roots of the saying is all but forgotten. In his second book on this topic, Timothy Cross covers many common phrases including: “Touch wood”, “It takes all sorts”, and “A heavy heart”. This title can act as anything from a reference-book to an interesting daily devotional.
We live in an age where ‘friendships’ are prolific and contact is constant. But are all of these people really our friends? The bond of Christian friendship is different. Built on our unity with Christ, these are real life, flesh and blood relationships – both sacred and sacrificial. Christina Fox offers insight into how we can weave friendships that last through any season and reflect Christ to the world.
“‘I would never have chosen to write a book on the prayer life. What a subject – and how hypocritical one feels in making the attempt! This cannot be an exhaustive treatise; the very idea that anyone could cover the whole field of prayer in a kind of technical manual is ridiculous. But there might be some simple guidelines in these pages that can be put to use in your churches and fellowship groups. I have deliberately tried to let each chapter stand on its own, so that the reader can feel easy about dipping into the pages at random.”

‘You could become the greatest living painter. Your paintings would be treasured for ever.’Those were the words Lilias Trotter heard from John Ruskin, one of the world’s most established art critics. She had to make a choice between her talent and her calling. Both were gifts from God. In May 1879 Lilias knew what she should do. God’s work for Lilias was in the desert land of Algeria. Palm trees and camels replaced lampposts and horse drawn carriages. The desert was her home, its people her friends and its Creator her reason for life.
