SOUND ADVICE FROM

THE HEROES OF THE FAITH What if, during a battle with fear, we could take some tips from David? Or in wrestling with a relationship, we could learn from Ruth? Or when we’ve got questions about the future, we could sit down with Joseph? Through their successes, struggles, and failures, these men and women of faith have blazed a trail for us to follow. In Lifelines, Mike Pilavachi and Andy Croft help us understand what the stories of these biblical characters have to teach us about how to live lives full of faith and integrity today.

finding faith Inspiring Conversion Stories from around the World

In her new book, Naomi Reed shares 13 remarkable testimonies of people from other faiths and cultures who have come to know Jesus. What was the most enjoyable part of writing this book? I loved meeting all the people and hearing their honest stories of faith. It was such a privilege, and I felt humbled by it. It was also deeply encouraging to be reminded, over and over again, that it’s God who draws us in, in his time. But as well as that, all the interviewees also described a particular friendship or church experience as part of their conversion. We’re all part of God’s amazing body of Christ worldwide and that’s a needed reminder and encouragement! Which testimony has impacted you the most? There was a moment, when I was interviewing Michael (from Iran) and he described reading the Gospels for the very first time. He paused and he said to me, “That’s when I fell in love with Jesus.” He said it with such warmth, and I could tell it was the most incredible thing that had ever happened to him. And it stirred the same memories in me of when I also heard the Gospel for the first time and responded. I think that’s actually the best part of faith stories – the way they powerfully connect us, and remind us of our own first love for Jesus. Has writing this book taught you anything new about God? I have seen, time and time again, that our heavenly Father is

beyond our imagining. The ways he reveals truth to each of us is as varied and surprising and wonderful as indeed we all are – uniquely formed by him, and part of his marvellous creation and story. I love the way these stories of faith reflect that! What do you hope readers will get out of reading Finding Faith? I hope they will be encouraged by the grace and love of God, through Jesus. God is at work everywhere, in all things, in all places, regardless of our background, language, resources, and even our religious understanding. Wherever we are and whoever we are, God wants us to know him through his Son Jesus, and he reveals himself to us, in his time, and in his ways. I’d also love it if the book encouraged us as believers, to keep praying for, and sharing with, our non-believing friends. We can expect God to work in their hearts! AND I’d also love it if the book could be read and enjoyed by people who are not yet believers. Maybe they will read it and find their own questions in the stories somewhere, or get a glimpse of what God is like, and how much he loves them. That’s my biggest hope and prayer for the book!

Faith in action Wurmbrand The Voice of the Martyrs This biography explores the inspiring lives of Richard & Sabina Wurmbrand, telling the complete story in one volume for the first time! 70 years ago on 29th February 1948 Richard Wurmbrand was arrested by the secret police. His crimes? Leading Christian worship and witnessing - both of which were illegal under the atheistic Communist regime of Romania. He also spoke up for Christ at a gathering of party officials and religious leaders.

Because of his faithfulness to Christ, he endured 14 years of prison and torture. His wife, Sabina, suffered two years of forced labour. They emerged not with melancholy or a bitter spirit, but with a story of victorious faith.

FAITHEISM Why Christians and Atheists have more in common than you think Over the past decade the Religion vs. Atheism debate has generated a lot more heat than light, with passionate advocates for both sides snarled up in antagonistic claim and counter-claim. Where does the truth lie? The desire to know the truth is in itself a uniting factor, even if we have reached different conclusions, and in testing our own assumptions, Krish contends, we can both grow in our own beliefs and understand each other better. Time and again the evidence shows that the truth on the ground is not what one might expect - and the potential for genuine understanding is far greater than the antagonists on either side would have you believe. What if, by believing the best about each other, we could achieve the best for ourselves? What if the truth really can set us free?
