The Prophecy of Amos - A Warning for Today: Bible Study Guide Paperback £9.99
The virtually unknown prophet Amos bursts onto the pages of history with a warning relevant to his time. He confronts the nation of Israel with the unchanging nature of God and warns them to repent before judgment falls. As we study a period in the history of a nation that had turned its back on God, we draw disturbing parallels with our own time.
With verse by verse commentary and explanatory notes, Amos: A Warning for Today provides a simple introduction to the study of a period of backsliding in Israel’s history – and the warning from the prophet which read through modern eyes appears so relevant to our present time.

Zechariah: The Prophet of Messiah
(Paperback, perfect bound, 5.5" X 8.5" 118 pages. £7.99)
The encouragement which Zechariah's prophecies brought to the Jews at the time of their return from exile helped them to rebuild not only their temple but also their national identity, as the prophet urged them to action and whole-hearted service for God.
Yet Zechariah's message of hope pointed beyond the glory of the temple to one greater than the temple: the Anointed One (Messiah) who would become both priest and king forever over all nations. Thus his message is one which should inspire commitment and service in the lives of Christian believers today.

Les Benedictions de la Grace de Dieu by Mathieu Baudin
(ISBN: 9781910942420 6 x 9 Perfect 106 pp £12.99)
Un commentaire sur la lettre de saint Paul aux Éphésiens. Quelque temps après sa conversion, Saul décida que son deuxième nom Paul était désormais plus adapté à sa nouvelle vie. Le Saul nom signifiait «destructeur» et c'est ce qu'il était autrefois, alors que le nom de Paul signifie «travailleur» et c'est certainement ce qu'il était devenu. Par la grâce de Dieu Paul reçut un ministère, quelque chose pour lequel il fut toujours reconnaissant, même s'il se toujours considérait comme en étant indigne. La vie de Paul illustre la grâce de Dieu, qui transforme ce qui est inutile, non rentable, et récalcitrant en serviteurs de Dieu de grande valeur.

The Emergence of Pentecostalism in Wales by Dr Chris Palmer Paperback £19.99
Dr Chris Palmer's outstanding study uncovers documentary evidence which suggests that the Pentecostal church in Wales had an even bigger impact on world Pentecostalism than has previously been recognized.
In this book Chris Palmer gives us the first detailed and wide-ranging account of the emergence of Pentecostalism in Wales at the start of the 20th century. He uncovers links that have been unknown to previous historians and shows the crucial importance of Welsh congregations not only to Wales itself but to the whole of Pentecostalism in the UK.

Hymns are lasting expressions of faith and worship. Hymns in German piety were written to serve as meditations and to teach individuals how to become better followers of Jesus.

"An excellent study of the spiritual themes found in the hymnody of the Brethren throughout the group's history" - David W. Music, Professor of Church Music, Baylor University, Waco, Texas.
Hosea: Prophet of a Broken Heart by Mathew Bartlett
(Paperback, perfect bound, 110 pp. RRP £9.99)
The prophet Hosea used the heart-rending story of his marriage to an unfaithful wife as a moving object lesson of the pain which God felt when his people Israel rejected his love. Rather than worshipping the true God, who had brought them out of slavery in Egypt, the nation had reverted to worshipping idols to such an extent that God was compelled to use the words of the divorce formula and say to them “you are not my people.”
In the midst of serious warnings for the unrepentant, the book of Hosea offers hope that no matter how far a relationship may have broken down, there are none which cannot be restored. In particular, our relationship with God can be renewed by his forgiveness and grace.
