Lorna Byrne
Authors:
Lorna Byrne

Lorna Byrne has helped millions of people around the world by calling on them to realise that they each have a guardian angel and by showing them that can ask for help from God and the angels.Lorna is often asked for help on how to ask and how to pray, so in this new book she gives detailed advice and also includes prayers for different occasions.She says: 'Sometimes our prayers are so focussed on asking for things, we forget to listen out for what God, the angels and our love ones are trying to tell us. God always has this abundance of blessings prepared for us, small blessings and great blessings. He wants to give every individual great life-changing blessings, beginning when that individual is born. God will do everything to make it happen, but He will never infringe on an individual's free will, which a good reason for us to engage intelligent conversation with him - listening as well as asking - in prayer.'

The Jesus Lifestyle

Nicky Gumbel
Authors:
Nicky Gumbel

What does living as a Christian really look like? What changes do I need to make to the way I live my life? How does Jesus want me to live?The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus' teaching on how to conduct our lives. While his original audience was a crowd of first-century Jews, his words are astutely relevant to 21st century living, particularly as modern Western cultural trends are increasingly at odds with Jesus' teaching. Laid out to follow the structure of Matthew 5-7, each chapter delves into the topics raised in these verses, including:- Dealing with anger- Handling conflict and criticism- Managing money- Sex, marriage and divorce- The secret of true happinessWith his familiar mix of wisdom and humour, Nicky Gumbel explains Jesus' teaching and presents practical ways to apply it so Christians can follow Jesus in every aspect of their lives.

You Can Begin Again

Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer

It's never too late for grace. Look closely enough and you'll see that theme all through the Bible. Page after page, story after story - God delights in turning tragic endings into new beginnings. The barren give birth, doubters become deliverers, and harlots are recast as heroes. In every biblical fresh start, we are reminded that with God, new beginnings aren't the exception; they're the rule.Using a blend of inspiring stories, Scriptural principles, and straight-talk, in You Can Begin Again, Joyce Meyer powerfully demonstrates that God isn't done with you yet. If you're stuck in a rut, disappointed by an outcome, hurting from a wound, failing in an endeavour, struggling in a relationship, or unsure about the future . . . don't give up. Don't give up on yourself, and don't give up on the God who loves you. If you thought it was too late, it's not. With God you can begin again.
