Finally Alive

Finally Alive
That prolific author John Piper has done it again. We dare not allow the new birth to be lost in the mists of our activity and emphasis. Often we hear sports commentators say that a certain mature sportsman has been 'born again' meaning that he is having another season of success following a dark period. The new birth should never be regarded as merely 'having another go'.

John Piper, with consummate skill, sets forth the Biblical doctrine of the new birth in all its magnificence and radical impact on lives that were formerly without form and void.

Sounds from Heaven

Sounds from Heaven
This eye witness account of the revival in the Isle of Lewis in the Hebrides from 1949-1952 is stirring stuff. Well worth reading just to catch the atmosphere of an island overwhelmed by the invasion of the Spirit of God. You will be deeply stirred by reading it and provoked to cry out to God to 'rend the heavens and come down' once again.

One Thing

One Thing
Those who've enjoyed John Piper's writings will find similar themes in Sam Storms' fine book. Some would say he is more accessible, though he evidently shares Piper's appreciation for Jonathan Edwards and C S Lewis.

We need 'How to...' books but we benefit greatly from books that remind us what the 'one thing' is. You may be a fan of 'City Slickers' and be reminded of Billy Crystal's perplexed question to Jack Pallance, 'But what is that one thing?' We need 'How to...' books but we benefit greatly from books that remind us what the 'one thing' is.

F.B. Meyer

F.B. Meyer
A contemporary of Alexander Boddy, F.B. Meyer would be better known as a result of his many devotional books. He became a famous Keswick speaker and an enormously popular spiritual leader and master of the pulpit in the years between C.H. Spurgeon and Campbell Morgan.

What this biography lacks in style it makes up for in its interesting detail of Meyer's life, including his personal search for holiness and his passion for helping the poor, which led to sustained sacrificial decisions.
