  • Do Miracles Happen Today


    Lots of extraordinary stuff happens in the Bible. People walk on water. People touch handkerchiefs and are healed. People disappear into the sky. Did these really happen? What was their purpose?

    And do miracles happen today? How do we respond if someone says they’ve seen a miracle happen? Should we hold healing services? What can I say to a child about praying for healing? How should we react when prayers for healing aren’t answered?

    In this warm and accessible book, Tim Chester looks at the Bible’s view of the existence and purpose of miracles and gives a careful and balanced view on whether healings and other miraculous things happen today.

    It will help Christians to explore these questions and others regarding miracles, signs and wonders, and know how to pray.

    – Why did Jesus tell people not to tell others about his miracles?

    – What can I say to a child about praying for healing?

    Questions Christians Ask are short, readable books which clearly explain how the Bible answers the tough questions Christians are asking.

    Additional Info
    Numerous books set out to help Christian parents in the challenging mission of raising their children well-so what’s different about this one? Well, the answer’s in the title! It’s not about how the gospel fits into Christian family life, but how family life should fit into the gospel-God’s greatest purpose for this universe, achieved in Christ.

    Many books aim to raise up competent, balanced parents and well-trained, well-rounded children. But Tim Chester and Ed Moll focus on families growing God-knowing, Christ-confessing, grace-receiving, servant-hearted, mission-minded believers-adults and children together.

    Christian families should be about…
    – not just making good citizens but also church planters, missionaries, reformers, servants and evangelists
    – not just learning about God but also showing Him to others;
    – not just controlling behaviour but also changing the heart;
    – not just parents and children, but being an integral part of the wider church family.

    In twelve concise chapters, Gospel-Centered Family takes us through the major Bible principles for family life, challenging us to give up our ‘respectable’ middle-class idols, and to become the distinctively different people that God, through His gospel, calls us to be.

    Further Reading

    Additional Info
    Most of what the Bible has to say about marriage does not come flagged up under a heading of “marriage”. It’s not just the famous “marriage passages” that shape a gospel-centred marriage, but the whole Bible-story of God’s good creation, humanity’s wicked rebellion and God’s gracious redemption.

    To understand why marriages struggle-as they all do-we need to understand the nature of our sin. To make marriages work, we need to understand how to apply the truth about God and His salvation.

    This study guide on Christian marriage focuses on how the Gospel shapes the practical realities of everyday life. Author Tim Chester lifts the lid on many of the common pressure points that modern couples face, and shows how a proper understanding of the Gospel can shape a response.

    What makes a real man? There are no shortage of role models on offer: the dedicated Dad or the party-hard guy: the cut-throat businessman or the sensitive husband; the competitive athlete or the contemplative shy type; the reckless adventurer or the around the house handy man.

    This set of Bible studies, aims to unpack the answers the Bible gives to the question of identity that men face today. We will learn our God-given role in creation, how that has been ruined by the fall. And we will discover how we can start to be restored through the man above all men – Jesus Christ. Some things that emerge will be controversial in our culture, even in some of our churches. This course doesn’t set out to be politically correct but faithful to God’s counter-cultural word.

    Suitable for groups or individuals, this guide covers all the major Bible teaching specific to men. Set within the big picture of God’s redemption of sinners through Jesus Christ, the heart-felt aim of the authors is that 21st century men will be set free from the slavery of human expectations, and enabled to live purposefully and confidently for Christ as true Men of God.

  • Ruth : Poverty And Plenty (Student/Study Guide)


    This woman from ancient times was no powerful princess – just a young, vulnerable widow, an impoverished outcast. The story records no famous events or places – just a struggling family facing hard times in a small, agricultural community occupied with their livelihoods and customs.

    But the hidden hand of God is at work in the lives of these ordinary people, and wonderfully at work in history. God transforms hardship from bitterness to joy; God’s word liberates people to become a community filled with loving kindness towards outsiders; God’s people reach out to their enemies. And most significantly, God’s great plan, to send a promised savioursavior King to redeem people of all nations, is being worked out.

    Like those in the story, we may be just ordinary people, unable to see how the events of our lives will turn out. But by encountering the God who works through the circumstances of life, we too can discover the God who can turn our ‘poverty’ to ‘plenty’ through Jesus Christ.

  • Meal With Jesus


    Drawing from six narratives in the Gospel of Luke, Chester shows how meals can be opportunities for serving others. Meals have always been important across societies and cultures, a time for friends and families to come together. An important part of relationships, meals are vital to our social health. Author Tim Chester sums it up: “Food connects.” Chester argues that meals are also deeply theological-an important part of Christian fellowship and mission. He observes that the book of Luke is full of stories of Jesus at meals. These accounts lay out biblical principles. Chester notes, “The meals of Jesus represent something bigger.” Six chapters in A Meal with Jesus show how they enact grace, community, hope, mission, salvation, and promise. Moving from biblical times to the modern world, Chester applies biblical truth to challenge our contemporary understandings of hospitality. He urges sacrificial giving and loving around the table, helping readers consider how meals can be about serving others and sharing the grace of Christ.

    How can there be three Gods and yet only one God?

    Have you ever groaned inwardly at a question like this? Many of us find the doctrine of the Trinity that God is three persons sharing one nature difficult to get our heads round, and frankly a bit embarrassing. What is more, we seem to get by without thinking about it too deeply.

    But in reality, the Trinity is at the heart of all that Christians believe. The nature of God as a Trinity gives shape to all Christian truth, and to the gospel that we believe and proclaim. And rather than be a source of embarrassment, properly understood, it should fill us with joy.

    This book aims to help you see how the Trinity is fantastically good news. Because the trinity means that God is not remote and uninvolved quite the opposite. God sent His Son and His Spirit into our world to draw us into a wonderful relationship with Himself. This is the God who gives meaning and joy to our lives.

    And along the way we discover that the Trinity answers other big questions: How can we know God? What happened at the cross? What does it mean to be human? How can people live together with all their differences? What does mission look like in a fragmented world?

    Tim Chester will take us deeper into understanding the thrilling triune nature of God. In short accessible chapters he takes us through the Bibles teaching on the Trinity; gives us an overview of the important arguments over the trinity that have taken place throughout Christian history; and lays out the practical implications for our Christian lives.

  • John Introducing Jesus (Student/Study Guide)


    Its only when you sit down and talk with someone that you start to discover what they are really like.

    What would it be like to have an intimate conversation with Jesus? What would you ask Him? What might He say to you?

    In his Gospel, John records for us a series of conversations that Jesus had with different people. They include a confused minister and a desperate woman; a lifelong loser and an anxious politician.

    From each conversation there emerges something new about Jesus who He is, what He came to do and what His priorities and concerns are. And each time we also hear Jesus speaking directly to us. He addresses our
    doubts and our desires, our fears and our failings, our sorrows and setbacks, and challenges us to think differently about God, life and eternity.

    Use these studies to deepen your understanding of Jesus Christ, or perhaps even to be introduced to Him for the first time.

  • Experiencing God : Finding True Passion Joy Peace And Rest In Christ (Student/St


    Have you had an experience of God? Its a question that provokes mixed reactions.

    The word experience may set alarm bells ringing for some Christians, as they imagine the word means supernatural encounters, strange visions, voices or other revelations.

    But the Bible, Gods final, complete revelation, reveals a different, yet no less marvellous experience of God. The wonderful truths of the Gospel, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit give Christians a unique experience of God, seen and felt in many ways. A love for Christ and for others. Peace in place of anxiety and joy in all circumstances. And a passion for doing good, and a deep sense of fulfilment and freedom.

    These studies stem from the conviction that a deeper understanding of Gods gospel leads us to a genuine, life-transforming experience of the living God in Christ, which leaves us hungry to know Him more, and serve Him more faithfully. Work through them yourself, with a friend, your partner or in a Bible-study group to discover the riches that are yours in Christ.

  • I Believe : The Apostles Creed (Student/Study Guide)


    I believe in God, the Father Almighty…’

    The Apostles’ Creed is recited by Christians throughout the world each Sunday. For many it is a dull routine, and for others, it is spoken with confusion or doubt, rather than with confidence and joy.

    Do we really need creeds? Increasingly, people do not like the idea of pinning truth down. Others want to stick to the Bible alone, and think that creeds have no place in our worship.

    But most churches have found it helpful to have a summary of Christian beliefs. Creeds summarisze who we are, they teach us what is important and they help us avoid error. In modern business language, they are our ‘identity documents’.

    This Good Book Guide aims to fill out the content of the short statements of this creed which are so familiar to us. In ten studies, it shows how they are derived from the Bible – the teaching of the apostles – and what the significance of this momentous formula is for our daily lives. Saying the creed need never be dull, confused or joyless again…

    Exploring love, temptation, fear and guilt from the Psalms

    How often do you get the tune of a mindless song stuck in your head? Its one way that Christians can end up thinking and wanting things just like the world around us. So God has given us a collection of songs that can help us re-tune our hearts to what He thinks and wants instead.

    You may feel as if your soul is downcast or sick troubled by worry, sin, suffering, fear or guilt. David, the Israelite king who wrote many of these songs, tells us that the Word of God revives the soul its powerful stuff! And how to revive your soul is the theme of this selection. Mostly written by people rolling in trouble, they take us from the problems we face, and turn us back to God, the rock.

    In these psalms you will find medicine for your soul. Learn to fear God instead of others, to trust Him in difficult times and to sing a new song to the God who saves.

  • Mark 9-16 : The Servant King (Student/Study Guide)


    Have you ever arranged to meet someone for the first time, only to miss them because you expected someone who looked quite different? But more serious would be to miss God Himself, just because He didn’t look like we expected…

    This is exactly what happens in the second half of Mark’s Gospel. Jesus is the King. But He comes to serve and suffer, not to fight political battles. He is Israel’s Messiah. But He comes to judge those who believe they are already God’s people. He is the promised Rescuer, but He can’t even seem to save himself. Rejected by religious leaders, deserted by His followers, it seems everyone is missing who He really is.

    Could we make the same mistake as the people of Jesus’ day? This Good Book Guide will help you to know and understand Jesus, just as Mark knew Him – nothing that people expected, but more than any of us could hope for.

  • Zechariah : Gods Big Plan For Struggling Christians (Student/Study Guide)


    Christians struggle. We struggle with ridicule and being ignored in a day of small things; with opposition to the message that Jesus is the only way to God; with our own failures and the devils accusations that make us question whether God accepts us. False teachers, false religion, and false priorities plague and distract us.

    In Zechariahs day, Israel had returned from exile, but home was certainly not all they had hoped for. Zechariahs task was to bring comforting words to the struggling people of God.

    These six Bible-studies open up Zechariahs reassuring and revitaliszing message for Gods discouraged people, including Gods great international building project; His solution to sin; His promised Shepherd-King; His great Day of judgement and salvation. Constantly focusing on what these things mean practically for Christians today, this course aims to help Christians live a life shaped, not by these days, but by that day when Gods big plan comes to glorious fruition.
