Money, Sex and Power

The Challenge of the Disciplined Life

By Richard Foster

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A brand new re-issue of this Christian classic, with a beautifully illustrated new cover.

No issues touch us more profoundly or universally,' writes Richard Foster. 'No topics cause more controversy. No human realities have greater power to bless or curse. No three things have been more sought after or are more in need of a Christian response.'

Money, Sex and Power discerns the biblical principles that enable us to live out a relevant and authentic response to the three greatest temptations of our age.

Gerard Kelly writes: 'Foster follows a road few in recent years have travelled, and does so with depth, wit and down-to-earth wisdom. Don't assume for one moment that this book is anti-money, anti-sex or anti-power: the author has a healthy respect and admiration for all three as sacred gifts of a loving creator. What he does urge us to do, though, is to "live rightly" in respect of these key ares, and so to be freed into a life of creative celebration.'

Every Job a Parable

John Van Sloten
Authors:
John Van Sloten

'I have a hunch that thousands of people are waiting for this book, as they struggle to translate God into the language of the cultures that constitute most of their waking lives. John Van Sloten shatters the sacred-secular divide, repositioning work as worship, and glory in the normality of the mundane. This is a message that really could revolutionise your relationship with God, but be warned that it will do so very quietly.' Pete GreigA farmer, a nurse and an astronaut walk into a church...They each bring with them their own exhaustions and exasperations, their own uncertainty about whether and how their work matters to God. Good news: all work matters to God, because all work reflects some aspect of the character of God. God created the world so that it runs best when it mirrors him, and we ourselves find the most fulfilment when we recognize God behind our labour.John Van Sloten offers a fascinating and innovative reflection on vocation: our work is a parable of God; as we work, we are icons of grace.

How to Hear From God

Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer

In the hustle and bustle of today's busy world, sometimes it's hard enough to hear yourself think, much less take a minute to stop and listen for the voice of God. But learning to recognize God's voice and the many ways in which He speaks is vital for following His plan. In HOW TO HEAR FROM GOD, Joyce Meyer shows readers that God reaches out to people every day, seeking a partnership with them to offer guidance and love. She reveals the ways in which God delivers His word and the benefits of asking God for the sensitivity to hear His voice. Joyce asks the question, "Are you listening?" and shares how to do just that.

Stitches

Anne Lamott
Authors:
Anne Lamott

What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one another and to what's sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable?These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Anne Lamott's follow-up to her New York Times-bestselling work, Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book, she explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped sheets of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together - one stitch at a time.It's in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth, humour and humanity.

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In his Encounters with Jesus series, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times-bestselling author of The Reason for God, shows how those encounters can still have a deep effect on us today. Jesus' experience in the garden at Gethsemane is well known, yet it is both more horrifying and more beautiful than we realise at first glance. Keller examines this biblical passage to show us how clearly Jesus saw the penalty he would have to pay for our sins, and how this payment ensures our standing as righteous in the eyes of God.This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.
