The Prophecy Answer Book by David Jeremiah

A very interesting little book from David Jeremiah.  He has written the book in a very sensible way, addressing questions that many people have and about the End Times.  I would say that the book would be best suited to those who have little or no knowledge on these topics, as it gives answers in…

“Cast of Characters” by Max Lucado

Another thought-provoking book by Max Lucado.  The very short chapters and easy-to-read style have contributed greatly to the success of this book.  While I wouldn't be in complete agreement with all his interpretations of biblical accounts, he does make some very valid arguments as to the way in which God uses very ordinary people for…

Belfast Marathon

A few months ago there was discussion as to whether or not the Belfast Marathon should be moved from Monday to Sunday.  Many public figures, politicians and mainstream churches publicly objected to this, on the grounds that it would cause major disruption to Sunday services.  The inconvenience of holding the marathon on a Sunday seemed to be a…

‘The Money Answer Book’ by Dave Ramsey

Dave Ramsey has effectively compiled this book as an easy to use resource for people of all ages who need answers to financial questions.  Issues such as how to tackle huge debt, how to budget or how to teach children to manage money are all dealt with very clearly.  The question and answer format is…

‘Greater Love’ by Robert Whitlow

Greater Love by Robert Whitlow is Book 3 in the Tides of Truth Series.  Although I had not read the first two books in this series I was able to follow the story line easily.  Without a doubt it is one of the best Christian fiction novels I've read in a long time!  The fact…

The Role Of Women: Part 3

Motherhood is one of those amazing roles that many women are blessed with. We recognise that having children may not be God's will for every woman but for those who are blessed in this way, it opens up a whole new aspect of life. As Christian mothers, we have a great duty and responsibility under…

‘A Century Turns’ by W. J. Bennett

'A Century Turns' is a descriptive account of the political history in America between 1988 and 2008.  Bennett analyzes the highs and lows of the two decades, whilst raising questions about the extent to which the past will help us learn how to deal with the future.  He brings us up to date and describes…

The Role Of Women: Part 2

Today I want to think about the role of a Christian wife in a Christian marriage, as outlined in scripture. There are many different references to wives in the bible and it would be impossible for me to use them all, so I have chosen I few which I think will be of benefit to…

The Role Of Women: Part 1

This post marks the first in a series I would like to begin about the role God has called women to do, in both church and home life. There are so many different opinions and interpretations of scripture concerning women that I am bound to have readers who will disagree with my view on certain…

Revival Through Technology?

I've been thinking about how the way the church evangelises, has changed so much in the past 150 years.  If we think back to the 1859 revival, this happened through the preaching of the word, so it was quite easy to visibly see God at work when people were getting saved in public gatherings.  Today…
