The Great Mystery
By Alister McGrath
There is currently huge interest in the question of human nature and identity, and what the human future might look like. Who are we? Why are we here? What is our future? Are we alone? And what can religion bring, alongside biology and anthropology, to these important and exciting questions?The Great Mystery focuses on this fascinating field of study. Alister McGrath, bestselling author and Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University, explores the question of human nature from both scientific and religious perspectives, and weaves together the results to open up and explore some of the deepest and most important questions about who we are, why we matter, and what our future might be. A follow-up to his critically acclaimed Inventing the Universe, in The Great Mystery Alister McGrath once again brings together science with religion to yield an enriched vision of reality, along with rigorous and thoroughly up-to-date scholarship and intellectual accessibility.

The grace revolution is all about bringing Jesus back to the forefront. When Jesus is preached and lifted high, lives are touched and transformed. It's a revolution of relationship and it's a revolution of restoration. The grace revolution begins in the innermost sanctum of your heart when you meet the person of Jesus. It is not an outward revolution but something that begins from the inside out. Today, you can experience deep, personal, and lasting transformation that is anchored on the unshakable, rock-solid foundation of Christ and His finished work.
The Great Enemy
By Timothy Keller
The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In his Encounters with Jesusseries, 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. The baptism of Jesus and his temptation in the desert are two well-known experiences of Christ, yet it is often forgotten that they go together. In The Great Enemy, Keller explores the contrast between Jesus' encounters with God and Satan. He explains why evil is deeper, more nuanced, and more complex than we think, and how we can confront and weaken its destructive force in our lives.This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.
The Grieving Sisters

The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In the third instalment of the Encounters with Jesusseries, 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. The story of Lazarus is one of the most famous in the Gospel of John, and in The Grieving Sisters, Keller uses it to help answer life's deep questions: What can we do to improve our condition? Who can put us right? Who is Jesus Christ? Through an insightful examination of biblical passages, Keller reveals Jesus' own answers to these questions.This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.
God Loves You
By Dr David Jeremiah
The love of God is the most powerful force in the universe. That God Himself is love is also the most basic definition of God in Scriptures, but it's so profound that it's often misunderstood. In this probing book, Dr David Jeremiah brings the reader into the very heart of God by answering such questions as:If God is love, how could He send anyone to hell? What's the difference between the loving God of the New Testament and the angry God of the Old Testament?If God is love, why did He require His Son to die such a cruel death on the cross?How can God be both loving and jealous?The author argues against the two polar views of God as a sentimental grandfather whose doting love could not bring him to punishment of the disobedient and God as an angry tyrant who would rule by threats. 'Both extremes paint a distorted picture of God and further confuse the issue of understanding God's love.' Dr Jeremiah writes. He insists that what God loves is actually defined by what He hates, and that neither His love nor His wrath can be understood in isolation from the other.Although the author is clearly aware of the way great men have grappled with these issues in the history of the Church, his doctrinal presentations arise more from the biblical text than from dogmatic theology. He examines in detail the way the apostle John treats love in his First Epistle, then fleshes out the doctrine of God's love in vivid representations of real people interacting with divine love.

Ghost Train Through the Andes
By Michael Jacobs
It was not until long after his grandmother, Sophie, had died that Michael Jacobs was eventually permitted to read the lengthy and passionate letters that his grandfather Bethel had written her from nine thousand miles away. In these letters, Jacobs discovered a remarkable story of hardship, deprivation and enduring love. His grandfather's work on the railway through the Andes was exhausting and desperately lonely. He had little in common with his fellow workers and became consumed by a mounting despondency, from which only his love for Sophie could save him. But, as the months and years of separation passed, the world in which Sophie was blossoming appeared more and more remote from his own.Michael Jacobs' journey back through time takes him from a rain-swept Hull churchyard to desolate Antofagasta in Chile and to the former silver capital of Potosí. Climbing through ghostly, lunar-like scenery towards the snow-capped summits of the Andes, he follows the route of his grandfather's railway - across giant rocky plateaux, through terrifyingly steep gorges and valleys of tropical lushness, and past grim mining townships buffeted by winds, rain and snow - to reveal an extraordinary love story.
