Preaching matters. It is a God-ordained means of encountering Christ. This is happening all around the world.
When the Bible is faithfully and relevantly explained, it transforms hearts, understandings and attitudes, and, most of all, draws us into a living relationship with God through Christ.
This is a book to ignite our passion for preaching, whether we preach every week or have no idea how to put a sermon together. It will encourage every listener to participate in the dynamic event of God’s Word speaking to his people through his Holy Spirit.
God’s Word is dynamite; little wonder that its effects are often dynamic.
The Amazing Cross
The cross of Christ is the heartbeat of Christianity. It is a place of pain and horror, wonder and beauty. Here sin collided gloriously with God’s grace.
As Christians we know about the cross but what difference does it make to the way we live, our priorities and values, and even how we face suffering?
Grounded in sound theology but with practical application this book presents us with the challenge to place all of our lives under the shadow of the amazing cross and allow that cross to transform us here and now.
An honest look at the Bible’s teaching on discipleship, and how we find deep joy as we consider Jesus, lose our lives for his sake and live counter-culturally.
Discipleship involves a gentle journey with our Saviour. Its demands will dovetail happily with our carefully crafted plans. Wrong. Peter Maiden pulls no punches as he looks at what a disciple should look like today. Are we prepared to follow Jesus' example? Lose our lives for his sake? Live counter-culturally in a world that values power, prestige and money, and constantly puts self at the centre?
Of all people, Jesus, the Son of God, has the authority to require this of us. And he’s calling us to a relationship, not to a set of rules or a miserable, spartan existence. In fact, it is through losing our lives that we find them, and thereby discover the source of pure joy. What a pity we set the bar too low.
