The Rest Of Your Life: Finding Relaxation In A Non-Stop World

So many of us just need a good rest. But when it comes to rest, it seems that we may have been missing the point…
Life is frantic, but it’s not God who is standing over us, encouraging us to get busy. His desire is to lead us into green pastures – areas that are productive, fruitful, beautiful and restful. Yet, so often we fight against Him.

In this book, author Ems Hancock share her realisation that God didn’t want her to be exhausted in order to tick off His to-do lists in Heaven. He does not benefit from our last-minute panics and frenzied stress. He (not to mention everyone else in our lives) gains far more from a well-rested, energised you.

Learn that rest is not a bolt-on, nice-to-have, additional extra. It is essential to your success in life. If you want to learn how rest can protect, maintain and lengthen whatever God has called you to do, this book has your name on it!

Book of the Week, Latest Releases Comments Off on New: Be The Hands and Feet: Living Out God’s Love For All His Children by Nick Vujicic

 

Be the hands and feet

Nothing in life is as exciting and satisfying as introducing Jesus to people who have never met him.

New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned motivational speaker, Nick Vujicic, is known worldwide as the man without arms and legs who personifies a “can do” spirit. Now in greater detail, he explains how the example of Jesus Christ motivates him to travel and speak broadly because the”good news” of the Gospel is just too good to keep quiet! Although the world has so many problems, no challenge is too great for the God who promises to move mountains.

Nick shares the heart of his message, the motivation behind all he does, and something that he believes the world needs now more than ever before: A faith in Jesus Christ that moves people to act and make the world a better place.

As Nick says on the back cover of his book: “If a man born without arms or legs can be the hands and feet of Jesus, so can you.”

Be The Hands And Feet is available from Books Plus Gloucester for £9.99

Book of the Week, Latest Releases Comments Off on Loving My Actual Life – Alexandra Kuykendall

Cover Art

What if you could actually love the life you are living right now?

In life, there is the ideal: fulfilling work, thriving relationships, financial security. Not to mention an orderly and beautiful home and children who never misbehave. And then there’s reality: frustrations, illness, feeling overwhelmed and inadequate. We can wait around for our circumstances to change and in the process miss the goodness right in front of us. Or we can choose to love our actual lives, right here and now.

In this entertaining and insightful book, Alexandra Kuykendall chronicles her nine-month experiment to rekindle her love of her ordinary, actual life. After wiping her calendar as clean as a mother of four can, Kuykendall focuses on one aspect of her life each month, searching for ways to more fully enjoy her current season. By intentionally adding one thing each month that will make her jump for joy, she provides a practical challenge you can easily replicate in your life. With humour, poignancy, and plenty of personal stories, she shows how a few small changes can make this crazy-busy life one of holy contentment.

In 1938 Annelies Magen, 18 years old and from a Jewish family in Dresden, was accused of being a spy by the German authorities. Her parents sent her to England to escape the threat of a ‘labour camp’, hoping to join her later. She would never see them again.

In this combined family history and memoir, Annelies’ son David Godwin, former chaplain of Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, traces the fate of the Magen family in wartime Germany, and reflects on his own life as a Christian with Jewish roots.

The Armstrong Girl: A Child for Sale: The Battle Against the Victorian Sex Trade Р£6.99 (RRP £9.99)

Book of the Week Comments Off on The Armstrong Girl: A Child for Sale: The Battle Against the Victorian Sex Trade Р£6.99 (RRP £9.99)

In November 1885 Victorian England was scandalised by a court case which lifted the veil on prostitution and the sex trade. In the Old Bailey dock was the editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, which had recently published a series of articles on the sex trade; a reformed brothel keeper; and the second-in-command of The Salvation Army, Bramwell Booth.
The group was accused of abducting a 13 year old girl, Eliza Armstrong. The group had set up the scheme to expose the trade in young girls. The resulting scandal triggered a massive petition and the raising of the Age of Consent from 13 to 16. Many MPs and other men in positions of power were furious, and the campaigners were indicted under the 1861 Abduction Act.
Booth would be acquitted, but others went to prison, martyrs for justice. The Armstrong Girl is the story of that scandal, and of the Christians who fought for this essential change in the law.
