The Power of Three

Discovering What Really Matters in Life

By Norman Drummond

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

Norman Drummond explains why good things really do come in threes, setting out a challenge to live a fuller life through establishing the right personal values, sharing solid principles and finally urging us to pursue the three core Christian virtues of faith, hope and love.

Good things come in threes.All too often we end up tearing ourselves apart, losing our way: mind, body and spirit work against each other, rather than together. We know in our hearts that this is not how life should be.
How has this happened? What is it in modern life that seems to make it so hard to live in balance between work and home, family and friends? Why is it so difficult to combine ambition with satisfaction, to achieve our goals without losing a realistic awareness of our limitations? What does it take to rediscover how life is meant to be lived - and how we can build on that to change the world around us for good?In THE POWER OF THREE Norman Drummond draws together a coherent response to these tough questions from a wide pool of experience. He outlines, firstly, the three wisdoms that help you work out who you are and where you should be heading; secondly, three principles which will guide you as you engage constructively to change the world around you; and thirdly, the three core values that must underpin everything if we are to truly make a difference.

Songs My Grandma Sang

Bishop Michael B. Curry
Authors:
Bishop Michael B. Curry

In a conversation about his teaching and preaching style, Michael Curry noted with a laugh that hymns and songs of faith were always a part of the mix. "I learned what I believed in the songs I heard my family - especially my grandmother - sing. We sang our faith every day."Out of that strong foundation, Bishop Curry shares the music of his childhood - the songs that have grown with him to shape an adult and vibrant faith.

Fearfully and Wonderfully

Philip Yancey, Paul Brand
Authors:
Philip Yancey, Paul Brand

Mysterious, intricate, pulsing with energy ... the human body is an endlessly fascinating repository of incredible secrets. In this new work, comprising two classics (Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image) edited together and updated, renowned surgeon Dr Paul Brand and award-winning writer Philip Yancey take us on a tour of wonder through the human body.Illustrated with stories from Dr Brand's ground-breaking career as a hand surgeon who changed the lives of leprosy sufferers by transforming medical treatment protocols, this lively narrative paints an unforgettable portrait of the incredible unity of the human body in its trillions of parts.As compassionate as he was brilliant, Dr Brand cared as much about his suffering patients as he was intensely curious about how the body works. And so just as his brilliant intuition - which led to medical breakthroughs earning him international awards and acclaim - makes human physiology come alive on the page, so does his deep love for people in their dignity as image-bearers make spirituality come alive on the page as well.Although Brand and Yancey do not presume that readers share their Christian faith, they trace the metaphor of 'one body, many parts' from a medical perspective on human life as well as a mystical perspective on the unifying presence of the Body of Christ. Filled with riveting stories of Dr Brand's work among the marginalized and outcast, this journey of understanding offers astonishing insights and page-turning reading.

How the Bible Actually Works

Peter Enns
Authors:
Peter Enns

'Seldom will you encounter such a fine combination of historical scholarship, interesting reading, and clever humour in one Biblical study. And then filled with faith and hope besides! Peter Enns does it again!' Richard Rohr, author of Falling UpwardFor many Christians, the Bible is a how-to manual filled with literal truths about belief that must be strictly followed. But the Bible is not an instruction manual or rule book but a powerful learning tool that nurtures our spiritual growth, argues Bible scholar Peter Enns. It does not hold easy answers to the perplexing questions and issues that confront us in our daily lives. Rather, the Bible is a dynamic instrument for study that not only offers an abundance of insights but provokes us to find our own answers to spiritual questions, cultivating God's wisdom within us. 'The Bible becomes a confusing mess when we expect it to function as a rulebook for faith. But when we allow the Bible to determine our expectations, we see that Wisdom, not answers, is the Bible's true subject matter', writes Enns. This distinction, he points out, is important because when we come to the Bible expecting it to be a textbook intended by God to give us unwavering certainty about our faith, we are actually creating problems for ourselves. The Bible, in other words, really isn't the problem; having the wrong expectation is what interferes with our reading.Rather than considering the Bible as an ancient book weighed down with problems, flaws, and contradictions that must be defended by modern readers, Enns offers a vision of the holy scriptures as an inspired and empowering resource to help us better understand how to live as a person of faith today. How the Bible Actually Works makes clear that there is no one right way to read the Bible. Moving us beyond the damaging idea that 'being right' is the most important measure of faith, Enns's freeing approach to Bible study helps us to instead focus on pursuing enlightenment and building our relationship with God - which is exactly what the Bible was designed to do.

The Sin of Certainty

Peter Enns
Authors:
Peter Enns

Bible scholar and author of The Bible Tells Me So Peter Enns explains how Christians mistake 'certainty' and 'correct belief' for faith when what God really desires is trust and intimacy.With compelling and often humorous stories from his own life, Bible scholar Peter Enns offers a fresh look at how Christian life truly works, answering questions that cannot be addressed by the idealized traditional doctrine of "once for all delivered to the saints."Enns offers a model of vibrant faith that views skepticism not as a loss of belief, but as an opportunity to deepen religious conviction with courage and confidence. This is not just an intellectual conviction, he contends, but a more profound kind of knowing that only true faith can provide.Combining Enns' reflections of his own spiritual journey with an examination of Scripture, The Sin of Certainty models an acceptance of mystery and paradox that all believers can follow and why God prefers this path because it is only this way by which we can become mature disciples who truly trust God. It gives Christians who have known only the demand for certainty permission to view faith on their own flawed, uncertain, yet heartfelt, terms.

Born for This

BeBe Winans
Authors:
BeBe Winans

Winans created worship experiences that inspired the world, as Christian music first came to television audiences. From the same Detroit roots that spawned the sounds of Motown, he melded Gospel with R&B to preach his faith through song.Growing up in the Winans family, a Gospel music family powerhouse, Benjamin "BeBe" Winans always knew he was born to be a gospel singer. He was surrounded by immense faith and talent from childhood--watching his four older brothers perform only fueled his dream to be on stage. But it wasn't until BeBe and his younger sister CeCe were teens that they were offered a life-changing opportunity to move out of Detroit and work for the eccentric Praise the Lord Network. The opportunity quickly thrust the siblings into the public eye and forced them to choose between the temptations of fame and fortune and their family values.Like a conversation with a life-long friend, BeBe invites new readers and loyal fans alike to share in never-before-revealed details about life in the crossfires between church, gospel music and the mainstream recording industry. He shares intimate stories about his mentor Andrae Crouch and Whitney Houston, who served a stint as his and CeCe's background singer. He reflects on the challenges and triumphs of maintaining his Christian faith over the course of a four-score recording career that garnered him nine gold and platinum recordings and six Grammy awards.
