New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned motivational speaker Nick Vujicic is known worldwide as the man without arms and legs who personifies a "can do" spirit. Now in greater detail, he explains how the example of Jesus Christ motivates him to travel and speak broadly because the "good news" of the Gospel is just too good to keep quiet! Although the world has so many problems, no challenge is too great for the God who promises to move mountains.

Using compelling stories from his own experience, Nick shares the heart of his message, the motivation behind all he does, and something that he believes the world needs now more than ever before: A faith in Jesus Christ that moves people to act and make the world a better place.

"He was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed." 
—Isaiah 53:5 ESV

Often hailed as one of the greatest chapters in the Bible, the prophecy of the suffering servant in Isaiah 53 foretells the crucifixion of Jesus, the central event in God's ultimate plan to redeem the world.

This book explains the prophetic words of Isaiah 53 verse by verse, highlighting important connections to the history of Israel and to the New Testament—ultimately showing us how this ancient prophecy illuminates essential truths that undergird our lives today.

This compelling reconstruction of the life and thought of St Paul paints a vivid picture of the Roman world in which he preached his revolutionary message and explains the significance of his lasting impact on both the Church and the world.

Regarded by many as the founder of Christianity, Paul of Tarsus is one of the most controversial and powerful figures in history. His writings have had an incalculable influence on Western culture and beyond, and his words continue to guide the lives of over two billion Christians across the world today.

In this superbly detailed biography Tom Wright traces Paul's career from zealous persecutor of the fledgling Church, through his journeys as the world's greatest missionary theologian, to his likely death as a Christian martyr at the hands of Nero in the mid 60s CE. Drawing judiciously on the latest research into the Jewish, Greek and Roman worlds, and enriched by a wealth of critical insight into Paul's own writings, this is the most rounded portrait of the apostle ever painted—his development, motivations, spiritual struggles and intellectual achievements, and his lasting impact over two millennia.

'Taste and see that the Lord is good,' the Psalmist writes (Psalm 34:8). And to those who called him good, Jesus said, 'No one is good — except God alone' (Mark 10:18).

Christopher Holmes expllores the divine attribute of goodness by offering a theological interpretation of the Psalter and engaging with the church's rich theological tradition, especially with the thought of Augustine and Aquinas. He contends that in the very depths of God's being, God is goodness itself, and goodness is preeminent in God's nature. Thus, he argues, God not only does good, as seen in the person and work of Jesus Christ, but also is good. Hence, the good that God does — and that God calls us to do — is anchored in the fullness of the good that God is.

Leading us on this journey through the Psalms and the church's tradition, Holmes helps us to understand what it means to make this simple affirmation: the Lord is good.

C. S. Lewis excelled at plumbing the depths of the human heart, both the good and the bad, the beautiful and the corrupt. From science fiction and fantasy to essays, letters, and works of apologetics, Lewis has offered a wealth of insight into how to live the Christian life.

In this book, Rigney explores the center of Lewis's vision for the Christian life—the personal encounter between the human self and the living God. In prayer, in the church, in the imagination, in our natural loves, in our pleasures and our sorrows, God brings us into his presence so that we can become fully human: alive, free, and whole, transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.

Dangerous Prayer offers a strategy for fostering prayer and spirituality in mission that focuses on neighbourhood transformation and global needs using the Lord's Prayer as a radical blueprint.

Sustainability in mission is not possible without prayer; vibrancy in prayer is not possible without mission. Christians on mission need a vibrant life of prayer in order to be effective yet to have a vibrant prayer life they need an outlet in mission.

The Lord's Prayer offers a radical inspirational framework to help move Christians beyond praying just for themselves and to have their imaginations captured by the mission of God and concern for global needs. Jesus' words guide us to pray for God's Kingdom on earth, for restoration, for food for all who are hungry, for people to experience forgiveness and all that really is good news about Jesus. It is a dangerous prayer because of its counter-cultural and radical stance, and because it invites us to be, in part, the answer to our prayers.

This book offers inspiring and practical approaches for unleashing the whole people of God for missional prayer and prayerful mission.

Catherine Campbell has personally walked the path of the broken-hearted. She shares with us how pain shapes our faith and develops a deep trust in the God who can transform what is broken in our lives. Using God's Word, illustrated by moving true-life stories, Catherine explores the difficult questions to enable us to find help for our struggling hearts.

This book is a must-read if you're suffering or supporting others, and an invaluable resource to prepare all of us for challenging times. Through suffering, God writes another story with our lives. Not the 'perfect' one we would have written for ourselves, but an infinitely more beautiful, more wonderful story that helps us to see that broken really does work best.

'To write a book on Christian suffering is no easy task but Catherine Campbell has succeeded superbly. Mingling Scripture teaching, biblical examples and contemporary illustrations with the account of her own intense sorrows, she has produced a book that will be an enormous help to those facing suffering and to those who would comfort others.'
