NEW: That’s a Good Question by J.John



You know how the Bible says 'always be ready with an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have'? How would you fare when it comes to those who often ask the hardest and most perceptive questions….children?! Canon J John's new book, 'That's a Good Question!' answers thirty-two difficult and unusual questions and endeavours to give clear and concise answers.

Example questions: When was God born? Why do people have different colour skin if we are all descended from Adam and Eve? Were there dinosaurs on the ark? What does God look like? Who made God? How can God listen to everybody's prayers? Does God know when I've done something wrong? How can Jesus fit in my heart? Why does God let bad things happen? Why do people die before they get old? If God hears our prayers why don't we get what we ask for? Will my dog go to heaven?

Knowing God by J.John



Instead of merely telling stories of what happened in the Bible, Knowing God distills powerful theology into simple words and ideas. Whether you are looking to give story-time new depth, or are looking to try something different in Sunday School, Knowing God is here for you. It's a message that will never grow old, and the start of an adventure to last a lifetime. It shows how there is nothing more exciting than the privilege of Knowing God!

The Easter Story by J.John


This is the most important story ever told.Although it's very sad at times it's also the happiest story. That's because it's true! J.John's The Easter Story is a simply told, easy to understand retelling of the Good News of Easter.
