A Story of God and All of Us

By Mark Burnett and Roma Downey

  • Hardback
  • £16.99

OFFICIAL TV TIE-IN TO 'THE BIBLE' CHANNEL 5 TV SERIES. The Bible's most fascinating stories are brought to life in vivid detail in this original work of fiction by husband and wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.

A STORY OF GOD AND ALL OF US is a sweeping narrative that dramatises some of the most important events and characters in the Bible. Developed alongside the epic TV mini-series THE BIBLE, the book reads like a fine novel, dramatising the sweep of biblical events, making the men and women of scripture come alive in vivid detail and dialogue. All are historically and theologically accurate.
The script for THE BIBLE TV series has been reviewed by a number of Christian church leaders and theologians for authenticity. All the key biblical characters are portrayed in the story: Moses, David, Daniel, John the Baptist and of course, Jesus. The book will also highlight the prophetic significance of the empires that controlled Israel down the centuries - Egyptians, Babylonians, Persians and Romans - as well as the many Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah.

In The Father and Son, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, explains why this means our encounters with Jesus can be richer now that he available to us in all times and places.

The problem of pain is a perennial one; and for those who undergo particular sufferings it can often be the largest obstacle for trusting in a good and loving God. If such a God exists, why is there so much suffering in the world? And how do we deal with it when it comes into our lives? In his most fullest and most passionately argued book since 2008's bestseller THE REASON FOR GOD, New York pastor and church planter Tim Keller brings his authoritative teaching, sensitivity to contemporary culture and pastoral heart to this pressing question, offering no easy answers but giving guidance, encouragement and inspiration.

Wounded by God's People

Anne Graham Lotz
Authors:
Anne Graham Lotz

'I believe there are many of us who have been wounded by God's people. And I believe there are those of you who have been so wounded, that you have confused God's people with God, and so have run from Him. The purpose of this book is to help you get past your wounds...to move forward into the joy and fellowship of God's presence, claiming the fullness of the blessings He has for you. God loves the wounded. I know.' In her most personal book to date, much loved author Anne Graham Lotz looks at a deeply painful question: what to do when we suffer rejection and hardship at the hands of other believers. Drawing on the story of Hagar, Abraham's mistreated servant, Anne shares the good news of healing and hope, offered by a God who loves us all - especially those on the periphery. An inspiring blend of Old Testament narrative with the author's own experience, this is a book that will show you that, just like Hagar found, 'you can't outrun God'.
