View at KoorongMere Christianity

C S Lewis. Paperback. 256 pages.

This hugely popular international bestseller is being repackaged and rebranded as the leading title in the C S Lewis Signature Classics range.

One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, Mere Christianity has sold millions of copies worldwide. The timeless questions of spirituality which Lewis raises will have resonance with a new generation of readers.

Mere Christianity brings together Lewis’s legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks in which he set out simply to ‘explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times.’ Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity’s many denominations, C.S. Lewis provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. This scintillating collection confirms C.S. Lewis’s reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age.

“He has quite a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest.”
Times Literary Supplement

“Lewis seeks in Mere Christianity to help us see religion with fresh eyes, as a radical faith whose adherents might be likened to an underground group gathering in a war zone, a place where evil seems to have the upper hand, to hear messages of hope from the other side.”

View at KoorongThe Four Loves

C S Lewis. Paperback. 176 pages.

The four Greek words for our word “love” are storge (affection), philia (friendship), eros (sexual or romantic love) and agape (selfless love, charity). These four categories form the basis of C S Lewis’ famous work on the nature of love, which seeks to show how the first three, which come naturally to humans, are fulfilled in the fourth – Agape, the Gift-love of God. Without the sweetening grace of this supernatural love, divine in its source and expression, the natural loves become distorted and even dangerous.

“Masterful without being magisterial, this book’s wise, gentle, candid reflections on the virtues and dangers of love draw on sources from Jane Austen to St. Augustine. The chapter on charity (love of God) may be the best thing Lewis ever wrote about Christianity.”
– Michael Joseph Gross

View at KoorongZeal Without Burnout: Seven Keys to a Lifelong Ministry of Sustainable Sacrifice

Christopher Ash. Hardback. 128 pages.

Thousands of people leave Christian ministry every month. They have not lost their love for Christ, or their desire to serve him. But for one reason or another, they are exhausted and simply cannot carry on.

Christopher Ash knows this experience all too well. As a pastor of a growing church, and then in his role training people for ministry, he has found himself on the edge of burnout a number of times, and has pastored many younger ministers who have reached the end of their tether.

His wisdom has been distilled into this short, accessible book, in which he reveals a neglected biblical truth and seven keys that flow from it. Understood properly, and built into our lives as Christians who are zealous to serve the Lord, they will serve to protect us from burnout, and keep us working for God’s kingdom and glory.

View at KoorongYou Can Change

Tim Chester. PB Large Format. 192 pages.

‘Many books are written by experts. This book isn’t one of them,’ admits Tim Chester. ‘It was written out of my own struggle to change. My long battle with particular issues set me searching the Bible as well as writings from the past. This book shares the amazing truths I discovered that now give me hope.’
‘For years I wondered if I’d ever overcome certain sins. And while I can’t claim to have conquered sin – for no one ever can do – here are discoveries that have led to change in my life and in the lives of others.’

You may be:

  • a new Christian, struggling to change the habits of your former way of life

  • an older Christian, feeling you’ve plateaued: you grew quickly when you first believed but now your Christian life is much of a muchness
  • a Christian who’s fallen into sin in a big way, wondering how you’ll ever get back on track

Other books describe how we should live, but this book outlines how we can change. It’s about hope: the hope we have in Jesus, hope for forgiveness, and hope for real and lasting change. God promises liberating grace and transforming power to his people.

Vaughan Roberts. Paperback. 96 pages.

In a culture where online communications and communities can be set up in seconds, it is striking that loneliness is still rampant. Even in the church, a place where we might hope for an oasis of love and acceptance, we can find interactions awkward and superficial. It s for this reason that Vaughan Roberts takes us back to the Bible, and challenges us to consider our need for true friendship. He is both honest and clear in his approach as he shows us that knowing and being known by God is the hope we need to begin to deal with the sickness of our self-love society. So whatever the state of your friendships, take heart and take hold of this book because as you do, you’ll see that we can live out our true humanity as we sacrificially love others for God’s glory. Each chapter includes thoughtful reflection and discussion questions to help change us as we read, as well as practical suggestions for how we can make a real difference to our friendships.

Each of us has but one life to live on this earth. What we do with it is our choice.

What if we lived each day as though it were part of a bigger picture, a plan?
