Emily Ackerman

Emily Ackerman trained and worked as a doctor before illness put an end to her professional career. Her first book, A Time to Care, was published by IVP.

Emily lives in Scotland with her husband. She likes people-watching, playing with fabric, playing with words and growing green things. Emily has two children and two grandchildren. After twenty three years of illness and disability caused by M.E., Emily is enjoying an unexpected recovery.

“With Emily, we can learn in a deeper way. How to keep ourselves well, how to overcome setbacks and even relapses.”

Luminous Dark

In Luminous Dark Alain retraces his journey through the stages of grief, pain and shock, choosing to lean into the pain and to face God with his disappointment in the dark tunnel of despair. It is here that Alain wrestles with God and with his grief. And it is from that he emerges with a sense of having seen God’s face – the one who knows our pain, who walks beside us, suffers and weeps with us, and who ultimately restores our joy.

A powerful book, not only brave and raw, but much needed in our charismatic world. It must have been a costly book to write.

Understanding Sexual Abuse

Drawing on his own experience as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, minister and lecturer Tim Hein offers his expertise, practical guidance, and empathy. For those who have suffered sexual abuse and those in a position to help them, this is a rich resource filled with sober truths and the hope of Christ.

It’s a moving, mature, challenging and hopeful work which should be readily available in every Christian church, and which anyone engaged in pastoral work will learn much from.
