Sharing the Faith by Ali Ansarifar
“It is encouraging to know God has thought of a similar plan for rescuing humanity from hopeless, insecurity, moral decay and ultimately death since the dawn of time. Now let’s consider God’s rescue plan as recorded in the old and new testaments of the Bible….
Like the rescuers of the Chilean miners, God has a plan for human salvation which has been unfolding over centuries of revelation.”
Sharing the Faith covers topics such as the key message of the Gospel of Christ, God’s plan for advancing humanity, the narrow path to salvation.
Jesus – Dead or Alive? The Evidence by Dr John Dyer
“The earliest Christians affirmed that Christ’s saving death and physical resurrection were certainties of ‘first importance’….
For many years I have studied the resurrection stories in the Gospels and have held captive by the extraordinary claim that after being pronounced dead by the Roman authorities and buried in a Jewish grave, Jesus rose again.”
This book investigates the resurrection appearances of Jesus with a view to establishing their authenticity.
ALAN – Autism, Love and Neurosis by Jaqueline Freeston
“This book is by far the most emotional & moving I have read in a long time, I was hooked from page 1. Jacqueline has such a beautiful way with words & makes you feel like you are part of her wonderful family & know all the visitors that passed through her front door over the years. I laughed & cried many times & will most definitely be reading it again. Thank you!” – Paula
An inspiring book about the lives of twenty-five strangers who occupied a spare room. It also tells of the authors son Alan who had autism.
Encounters with God in Brazil by Dr John Dyer
“Many of the stories that unfold in this book are know only to me and my wife Maria. Of course, the participants involved in each story may well remember these moments with fondness, laughter or anguish, and perhaps a mixture of all three… The story and stories are being told here, with the desire to make known the mystery and wonder of his (God) ways, in his dealings with ordinary human beings….God is here for us when we need him; in situations beyond our control and also those of our own making.”
This book claims that God is directly involved in life’s situations, that in him we live and move and have our being.
Vitamins for the Soul by Alan K Scotland
“There are times when we all lose hope. In recent years, we have had to deal with the financial crash 2008 and a global pandemic, which devastated many lives. Even without such large-scale events, our capacity to hop is constantly being tested…
God’s compassion for us never falters and belief in Him fills our hearts with joy that cannot be taken away.”
About facing challenges that test our resilience and we all need to nurture our vitality. Every one of us has a soul and we have a responsibility to take good care of it by pursuing what God wants for our lives.
