God and the Transgender Debate

One of the ever increasingly tense conversations going on in our world today is the discussion about gender. Transgenderism is a big and complicated topic. The discussions can often become very heated very quickly because it is a very personal issue for many people, this can sometimes lead to convictions being based on experience rather than evidence.

Spiritual Growth, Spines and Covers

Over the years I have recommended hundreds, if not thousands, of books. People regularly get in touch and ask for recommendations and it’s a joy to give them, it’s one of the reason this blog was started. But books, and the regular reading of books, isn’t enough. You can have the best argument on the page in front of you, you can be challenged and stretched so much, but if it stops there did it really impact you?

Surprised by Jesus

The Gospels are full of surprises. Jesus didn’t blend in like the rest of the world, He stood out because of the things He did, said and fundamentally because of who He is; God in the flesh. In ‘Surprised by Jesus‘ Dane Ortlund walks you through the four Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus to help you see the wonder of the gospel and the immense grace of Jesus.

Leadership or Servanthood?

Over the years I’ve read a lot of books on leadership, in the context of local church ministry. It’s to be expected as that’s the area I work in and the area that I want to grow in. But a lot of books try to walk the tightrope between being a leader and being a servant. This is a constant tension in Christian ministry. So, which one is it, are you a leader or a servant? How do we faithfully follow the example of Christ?
