The concept of the invisible spiritual realm is something which is difficult for us to grasp. What we can see, hear, and feel we can take on face value that it is reality. But what about those things that are unseen? Scripture speaks about heaven, hell, angels and demons which are a part of this invisible spiritual realm. Internationally renowned Bible teacher R. C. Sproul helps us gain an understanding of these things so that we can come to a realisation that in fact all four are true realities that impact upon our everyday lives.
Dr. R. C. Sproul is a respected teacher, theologian and pastor. He is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries. He currently serves as the director of Serve International and as senior minister of preacher and teaching at Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida. He can be heard teaching daily on the ‘Renewing Your Mind’ broadcast throughout sixty countries. He has a real heart for people to hear and do the Word of God in their lives.
Some people want to look beautiful, wearing the best clothes, with gorgeous hair, and pretty jewellery. But is that what beauty is all about? Anna was devoted to God and longed to meet the promised Messiah. Leah realised that skin beauty was not as important as trusting in God for your salvation and Dorcas showed her true beauty by showing God’s love to others. All these stories and others like them are in the Bible. These Bible beauties can teach us how to be women of God, people with an eternal beauty that is more than skin deep!
Connected Christianity is a clarion call to Christians to robustly engage with the world we live in for the sake of the gospel. It calls us to be both Christian AND worldly, surely an unnerving tension when first considered but absolutely necessary if we are to truly reach the lost of this world we live in with the gospel they so desperately need to hear.
The Great Commission is your commission. You need to feel the weightiness of it. You need to own responsibility for it. It is not the commission merely of your church’s pastor. The work of evangelism is not reserved to one man who stands in front of the people on the Lord’s Day, or occasionally goes out into the open air. This is the job and responsibility and privilege of every one who names the name of Jesus Christ.
But how do we engage the world meaningfully without compromising the integrity of our Christianity? Is it possible for a follower of Jesus Christ to be both “worldly” and Christian? These are the questions this book seeks to answer. (more…)

Dr. Trueman examines the origins of contemporary Reformed theology in the Reformation world of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. After tracing how this heritage shaped and transformed the intervening period, he then describes some of the major challenges being faced by the evangelical church at the present time and suggests ways of responding which remain faithful to the Scriptures and the theology of the Reformers drawn from it and points towards a future that embraces and disseminates these wonderful doctrines of grace.
Carl Trueman is Professor of Historical Theology and Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He has contributed to the Dictionary of Historical Theology, the Dictionary of National Biography, The Cambridge Companion to Reformation Theology and the Blackwell Companion to Modern Theology.
“Dr Trueman calls us to build on the work of Reformers by a continuing reformation of the church under the Word; especially with regard to the cross of the Christ, the written and preached Word, and thirdly, the assurance of salvation…”
Eryl Davis ~ Head of Research, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales
“This fine book should be required reading for all Christians-and especially for those who doubt whether the Protestant Reformation has anything left to say to us in our day… Along the way, he scatters nugget after nugget of insight into what is core to the Reformation legacy, motivating his readers to embrace this core again.”
What exactly is it that Christians believe? Whether you are a Christian looking for a refresher course on the essentials, or an interested enquirer, this book is for you.
Clearly and crisply explaining the core beliefs of the Christian faith, and interacting with the kinds of questions on our minds, many areas of confusion are clarified, and many questions answered by this wonderfully helpful book.
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.
