God has been receiving rebellious answers from His children ever since Adam and Eve! So often, just like Jonah, we are blinded by our situations, culture, or our own hearts. So often we ignore what we know God is calling us to do … and we are always left feeling incomplete and far from Him.
Anywhere but Nineveh is a thirty day devotional which inspires and focuses the mind, not on our rebellion, but instead on a God who speaks to us and on “One greater than Jonah” Who did not run away. This book is an encouragement and a reminder of the simple truths of our beautiful faith – perfect for mature or new Christians.

From the increase in terrorism, to the push for gender fluidity, to the gradual eradicating of Christianity from schools, many of the trends unfolding in this century can be worrying. Earl Blackburn shows that, during these times, learning about our history is one of the best tools for encouraging us in our faith. He reminds us that the same all powerful Lord, who helped Christian heroes in past times, walks with us today.
Written with the easy style of years of experience, 50 World Changing Events in Christian History is an inspiration for Christians of any age.
Nestled in a few verses in Luke’s Gospel is a Jesus who would not have been tolerated on our city streets today: He was not politically correct. He did not try to save people’s feelings. This was because the things He was saying were too important and His love for people too strong to allow Him room to tread softly.
Steven Lawson unpacks these few verses, looking at the unashamed honesty, passion, and urgency with which Jesus explains the incredible cost involved in following Him. It is undoubtedly the biggest sacrifice any person ever makes – but it is for the most abundantly glorious prize imaginable.
By the end of his brief life Ulrich Zwingli would change the religious landscape of his home and the world. It wasn’t until the last few years of his life that he became a reformer. He fought for truth and righteousness with his mind and pen, he fought for lost souls to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and at the age of forty-seven, as an army chaplain, he was killed on the battle-field. The Shepherd Warrior, Ulrich Zwingli, fought the good fight.With his last strength he voiced his victory: “They can kill the body but not the soul!”
Martin Luther’s father was a miner with ambitions – he wanted to better himself and provide his children with a good education. Martin upset his father’s plan by becoming a monk rather than a lawyer, but by the age of 29 he was a professor of theology. In addition to his college duties he preached almost every day and visited people on pastoral duties – he kept two secretaries very busy.
Luther’s father, meanwhile, became a town councillor, the part owner of six mines and owned a large house in the main street.
What happened to make this son of the upwardly mobile establishment into the revolutionary who nailed 95 Theses onto the church door at Wittenberg, affecting not only the whole of the Christian church but also breaking the power of a European superstate? This is the story of a passionate, flawed and courageous man who loved his family and the people around him; a man who went further in challenging the status quo than any other in history, the man who started the Reformation.
