More Than Words: A Collection of Paintings and Reflections by Hannah Dunnett
Hannah Dunnett explores her unique artwork and the visual imagery she uses in her paintings to illustrate scripture.
Her inspirational artwork provides a fresh look at scripture and aids personal reflection and devotion. She uses key verses and their meaning and offers questions to reflect on giving readers an opportunity for fresh understanding.
The book is divided into four sections: The Wondrous Cross, Father God, Teach Me Your Ways and Let Your Light Shine, and will take individual readers, or small groups, on a journey further towards the heart of God.
God is Stranger by Krish Kandiah
Taking a fresh look at Bible passages he thought he knew, Krish Kandiah was struck by the fact that when God turns up, he never seems to do what people expect - and started to wonder what this might mean for the ways we expect to encounter God today.
'This is an urgent, powerful and prophetic book that has the potential to change your life forever. Full of passion, biblical insight and real-world application, it demands not just to be read but to be acted on!'
Revd Canon J. John

Unbelievable? by Justin Brierley
Born out of Premier Radio’s popular Unbelievable? podcasts, this book invites readers to unpack some of the most common objections to Christianity, equipping them to respond to sceptics and better understand the reason for their faith.
Conversations matter. Yet, recently, good conversations about faith have been increasingly squeezed out of the public sphere.
Seeking to reopen the debate, Justin Brierley began to invite atheists and sceptics on to Premier Christian Radio to air arguments for and against the Christian faith.
Reflecting on conversations with Richard Dawkins, Derren Brown and many more, Justin explains why he still finds Christianity the most compelling explanation for life, the universe and everything. And why, regardless of belief or background, we should all welcome the conversation.
‘Beautifully written, brilliantly argued, Justin’s book will thrill Christians and challenge atheists.’ R. T. Kendall, author and pastor
‘Justin has that happy knack of being able to get people of diametrically opposed opinions debating the big issues.’ John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford

Spiritual and Religious by Tom Wright
'I'm spiritual but not religious.' It's a phrase that's often used to explain why, although they don't go to church, people still feel that life must have some kind of transcendent meaning,
But what does this 'spirituality' consist of? In Spiritual and Religious Tom Wright argues that, whether people realize it or not, they are often simply reverting to forms of ancient paganism that are very similar to those that confronted the earliest Christians.
With his characteristic verve and incisiveness, Wright traces the parallels between the worldviews of the first and twenty-first centuries, and shows how a better understanding of God as Trinity can breathe fresh life into our understanding and preaching of the gospel today.

The single-column setting and blank margins allow for plenty of room beside the Scriptures for your notes, drawings, stencilling and illumination, bringing a new depth and imagination to your quiet times.
The Selfish Gospel by Freddie Pimm
The gospel of Jesus – it’s the good news with the power to shape a nation. And yet, for many, the church seems to have lost its transformative edge. But why?
Looking past the symptoms to the root cause, junior doctor Freddie Pimm suggests a diagnosis: we have made the Gospel selfish. Thankfully, however, Jesus freely prescribes the treatment . . .
Easy to relate to and full of biblical truth, The Selfish Gospel reminds us of the gospel’s greatest paradox: in order to save our lives, we must first lose them.
Against the grain of our ‘it’s all about me’ society, this refreshing book explains how it is only when we let the gospel cost us and change us that we see the power of transformation: within ourselves, throughout the church and across our generation.
£9.99. 160 pages.
Unpopular Culture by Guvna B
Guvna B, one of the UK's biggest Christian rap artists, shares his own story and testimony and helps young people to rediscover their purpose, live out their faith, and transform the world.
Money is the key to happiness.
Work hard, play hard.
Look out for number one.
Popular culture is full of phrases like these, telling us the best way to live, the right things to buy, the right body shape to have, the right people to hang out with. These messages are everywhere we look, 24 hours a day.
But what if there was another way to live?
What if we chose to live differently: to stand against injustice, to live life for more than just ourselves, to dare to be unpopular?
£7.99. 144 pages.
Worshipping God by R.T. Kendall
Understand how your act of worship through your daily life and expression of gratitude and love draws you closer to God.
We are called, by the way we live and in all we do, to worship God. Yet most of us do not have the proper understanding of what worship really is.
In "Worshipping God," R. T. Kendall shows us the true meaning of worship as a way of honoring, glorifying, and loving God. Dealing with the different ways people worship, he explores the connection between our worship and our relationship with God."
£10.99. 224 pages.
