What I Like About ‘Simply Pray’

Jill Weber on 16th January 2019

I don’t like book reviews that assess and evaluate.  I’m not well read or intelligent enough to cast judgement on other authors.  Plus, I always assume when I read a book that there will be things that I agree with, and things I don’t.  And I learn just as much from my moments of resistance […]

What I’ve learned about relationships

Mark Greene on 3rd July 2018

Mark Greene, author of Probably the Best Idea in the World, reflects on 7 things he has learned about relationships. 1. I’m not nearly as good at them as I used to think I was. And I’m not being self-deprecating. Ask my children. Ask my friends. Don’t ask my co-workers. 2. Love is the key […]

The Problem with Love

Mark Greene on 3rd July 2018

The problem with love is that you just can’t escape its often inconvenient but ultimately liberating demands. Just when you think it’s only about romantic intoxication, abandonment to the ‘One’, caring for your brilliant friends, honouring your embarrassing parents and your sparkling/lose-the-will-to-live lecturers, reaching out to those in need, handing out flipflops to worse-for-wearing-high-heelers at […]

Understanding Sexual Abuse

Justin Humphreys on 13th March 2018

Understanding Sexual Abuse: A Guide for Ministry Leaders and Survivors is an informative and sensitive book which considers sexual abuse in a Christian context. Tim Hein is in active ministry in a local church and what is most distinctive about this book, in my opinion, is its combination of insights from survivors’ experiences of abuse and […]

Finding Beauty on the Streets of Ibiza

Kathryn Ritchie on 8th March 2018

Ibiza is a place where God is moving powerfully. There is never a doubt that God will show up in a situation. We have seen His miracles time and time again in our work – whether that be miraculously finding someone’s hotel, watching a person instantly sober up, or getting the chance to pray for […]

Peri Zahnd on 5th March 2018

Most of us will at some point experience the death of a loved one or another cataclysmic loss in our lives—it’s a universal experience we are usually unprepared for.  Luminous Dark is a book to read before that happens, written by a young pastor who watched his 23-year-old wife die of a fast-growing cancer.  He […]

Review: Understanding Sexual Abuse by Tim Hein

Salome Skaff on 14th February 2018

I love the esteem that Tim Hein holds the church in – a place where people teach, model and learn deep truths about life and purpose. Because of this esteem, he holds the church to a high standard when it comes to protecting and ministering to abuse survivors. As such, this book is an invaluable […]
