Why Everything Matters The Gospel in EcclesiastesAuthor(s): Phil Ryken
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (Jan 12-13)
Buy Now!

Ecclesiastes is for people who have their doubts about God, but can’t stop thinking about him. The author of Ecclesiastes had his doubts, too, and these have enabled him to speak to skeptics as well as believers down through the centuries.
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.


The Cambridge Seven The True Story of Ordinary Men Used in no Ordinary wayAuthor(s): John Pollock
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       Buy Now!

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?

The Dawkins LettersAuthor(s): David Robertson
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (Nov 17-18)

When Richard Dawkins published ‘The God Delusion’, David Robertson wanted there to be an intelligent Christian response. After some ill thought through interventions in the media it was obvious that no one was really going to answer the real issues so David Robertson wrote an open letter to Richard Dawkins on his church website. This has found its way into Richard Dawkins’ website, where it generated the largest response of any posting up to that time. Since then it has been the source of continued discussion – being a critical part of the largest discussion since that time as his book was officially reviewed on the website.
The ferocity of the responses and the shallowness of the thinking that it exhibited, spurred David to write this book. Christians need to know where Dawkins is weak and we need to explain things better! It draws upon David’s experience as a debater, letter writer, pastor and author.
This is a very honest book. It agrees with Dawkins where appropriate but also does not hesitate to point out where some of his thinking does not hold together – It is written in a gentle spirit of enquiry.

David Robertson is pastor of St Peter’s Free Church of Scotland, Dundee.

“The content is excellent. It’s a fun, engaging read that seeks to be as charitable as possible (with an obviously virulent opponent) while not shrinking back from pointing out and exposing the fallacious, emotional, and often-childish arguments constantly employed by Dawkins.”
Ligon Duncan ~ Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi

Note from the author: The poster, ‘richarddawkins.net’ (is this an official view?) accuses me of lying and gives the example of the quotes on the cover of the book having been made up. From a Christian perspective this accusation of lying by either myself or CFP is very serious. Lying for Jesus is obviously self contradictory and wrong. The example that the poster gives is just wrong. All the quotes came from the Dawkins website, were seen by many people, and I have copies of them all. However over 300 posts were removed from that particular thread – including many of my own posts and all the ones referred to in the book. Perhaps it was just a coincidence but whatever the case those quotes did exist. If the poster is writing on behalf of richarddawkins.net, they know this and therefore are themselves not telling the truth. It is not the first time that a lie is told in order to accuse others of lying. It is very strange that richarddawkins.net are so keen to accuse me of lying, it indicates a certain level of desperation. They are struggling to answer ‘The Dawkins Letters’ and so have to revert to attacking the author.
David Robertson ~ Pastor of St Peter’s Free Church of Scotland, Dundee

“The shortest, the cheapest and in some ways the sharpest book is The Dawkins Letters…clever, humourous and right to the point.”
Ron Ferguson, Life & Work, Church of Scotland magazine

“This book is a refreshing, excellent read…I wouldn’t hesitate to pass this book on to a non-Christian, atheistically-persuaded friend.”
Hannah Wooley, Evangelical Magazine, Evangelical Movement of Wales

This book is a more than useful contribution to the ‘Dawkins Debate’ and one which has helped me to understand more about the flawed arguments contained within ‘The God Delusion’. The book comprises a series of ten letters to Dawkins, the first of which was published on Dawkins’ own website, which counter the arguments in Dawkins’ book chapter by chapter. Robertson is clearly well-read and marshals his arguments in a balanced and intellectually sound way. But this is not an inaccessible academic treatise; he writes clearly and understandably in such a way that most people will be able to grasp the arguments easily. He avoids the temptation to ‘rubbish’ Dawkins, just dismantles and challenges his arguments frankly and cohesively. The final letter (to the reader) “Why Believe”, contains a very useful and exten


Richard Baxter The Pastor's PastorAuthor(s): N/A
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (Nov 10-11)

Baxter was one of the most influential of the Puritans. He recognised the value of writing about 170, which have sold in tens of millions since.
The amazing thing is that whilst he was such a prolific auhtor he also exercised an exemplary pastoral ministry, preached to Oliver Cromwell and Chalres II, and was hounded by the authorities.
Baxter was eventually imprisoned by the notorious ‘bloody’ judge Jeffreys whom Baxter obviously exasperated “I see the rogue in your face” said Jeffreys during the trial, “I was not aware my face was so true a mirror” shot back Baxter.
During his pastorate at Kidderminster in England he and one assistant, were catechising 800 hundred families per year by taking them in groups of 14 or 15 families on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Thursdays, Baxter acted as an informal judge, settling forms of conscience. The effect on the community was such that ‘the jails in Kidderminster were empty’ at this time – yet he considered all this as secondary to his writing.
Baxter’s autobiography is fascinating because you can read the thoughts behind his plans, actions and concerns. Not only do you get an insight into the Puritan mind but also a survey of the society.


The Life of God in the Soul of the Church The Root and Fruit of Spiritual FellowshipAuthor(s): Thabiti Anyabwile
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       (Nov 10-11)
Buy Now!

In this transformational book, trusted pastor Thabiti Anyabwile repositions our thinking about spiritual fellowship. Extending the concept of Divine life presented in Henry Scougal’s classic The Life of God in the Soul of Man, Anyabwile contends that union with Christ is not individualistic, but is discerned in the soul of the local church. This vision of spiritual fellowship is not centred on external activities and programs, but on our shared life in Christ, as we share one another’s sufferings, use our spiritual gifts for the good of the body, partner in spreading the gospel and grow spiritually together.
The Life of God in the Soul of the Church is experienced personally by believing the truth and shared relationally in the church which leads to great joy and holiness.


Pastor Hsi A Struggle for Chinese ChristianityAuthor(s): Geraldine Taylor
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       Buy Now!

Here is an amazing story about a man whose life made such a great impact for God. The Bible is filled with stories of God’s work in the lives of ordinary men and women who did extraordinary things for the Lord. These stories were written not only to give us the truth but also to inspire us to trust the Lord. Pastor Hsi experienced danger, adventure, persecution and great power to heal the sick. But what marked his life the most was not the great things he did for God but his deep and profound awareness of his dependence upon God. This book will challenge you to follow the example of this man. He saw the sovereign in-breaking of God, time and time again yet did not allow it to puff him into pride or arrogance.

His simple childlike faith led him to take the New Testament at face value: he put into practise whatever he read. He fasted, he prayed, he laid hands on the sick and cast out demons.
The reality of these experiences should compel us to search our hearts again and ask if we are availing ourselves of the authority that has been given to us. If you dare to be changed read on!
