Book Review: Living Faithfully by John Pritchard @SPCKPublishing

Living Faithfully by John Pritchard Published by SPCK Publishing on April 2013 Genres: Christian Life Pages: 192 Format: Paperback The faith we proclaim on Sunday is just as relevant to the rest of the week. However, too often the teaching and support that church life offers us can seem aimed at deepening our personal commitment to Christ and our involvement in church activities, rather than enabling us to live out our faith at work and in the world. We need to close the gap between sacred and secular, and that’s what this book aims to help us do. Each chapter…

Book Review: The Compassion Quest @SPCKPublishing @Trystan_Hughes

I said on January 1st that I’d resume continuous blogging and I failed miserably. Mostly this is because of getting married, but also because of various things to do with my job, looking at the future and some website problems here at DeanRoberts.Net. However, I am determined now, more than ever, to start my regular blogging. Very determined indeed. And to start off, I have decided to catch up on some reviews. Unfortunately, the Old Library is still down at the moment so you will be unable to access previous reviews that I have done including some which should have…

Book Review: Glorious Christianity by Cally Hammond @SPCKPublishing

Yes, I’m back! And to kick things off, I have a new book review: Glorious Christianity by Cally Hammond. For those of us with a more low Church and/or evangelical approach to things, books like this are great for showing us that those of different worship styles can believe in the same core beliefs about faith.

Book Review: The Last Things by Anthony Thiselton @SPCKPublishing

This Sunday brings forth a new Book Review for my readers. This time, it’s a book on Eschatology. For those of you who regularly converse with me on such matters, then I shall urge you now to by the book and tell me what you think about it. Very well written, excellent research done and highly recommended. It presents a lot of ‘alternative’ views to ones which you may or may not hold, which is never bad for someone wanting to get to know God deeper! Anyway, here is the link for the review. Happy reading!
