Thief of Corinth Thief of Corinth

Tessa Afshar

First-century Corinth is a city teeming with commerce and charm. It's also filled with danger and corruption - the perfect setting for Ariadne's greatest adventure. Ariadne risks her good name, her freedom, and the love of the man she adores to become her father's apprentice.

When they befriend a Jewish rabbi named Paul, they realise that his radical message challenges everything they've fought to build, yet offers something neither dared hope for. Be transported back in time by this gripping tale of adventure, bravery, and redemption.

          Through My F
Through My Fathers Eyesather's Eyes

                    Franklin Graham

Many have written about Billy Graham, the evangelist. This is the first book about Billy Graham, the father, written from the perspective of a son who knew him best.

This vulnerable book is a look at both Billy Graham the evangelist and Billy Graham the father, and the impact he had on a son who walked in his father's steps while also becoming his own man, leading ministries around the world, all of it based on the foundational lessons his father taught him.

Confirmation & Weddings

We Have plenty of cards for all occasions, including confirmation and weddings

Beyond ConfirmationBeyond Confirmation

Baptism and Confirmation are both new beginnings in the Christian journey, but while baptism is more like birth, confirmation is more like graduation from college. And like graduation , confirmation is best seen as a beginning of a new chapter of life, rather than an end.

This book takes a look at the next steps after confirmation, and how we can ensure that we continue to grow as Christians in the months and years to come. It covers areas such as knowing God, what it means to be disciples, being part of the "body of Christ" (the church), sharing our faith with others, and living as Christians in our local community.

The Hand Book for Believer's Baptism

Baptism is a significant rite of passage for many Christians - a public demonstration of changed heart and new life, an act with deep spiritual meaning in response to biblical command.

This lively easy-to-read handbook covers the meaning and mandate for baptism as well as offering guidelines for preparation to get the best out of the event. A great gift for anyone considering baptism, and an excellent resource for church leaders to use in baptism classes.

Knowing God       Knowing God Through the Year

                      J.I.Packer

" How can we turn our knowledge about God into knowledge of God? The rule for doing so is simple but demanding. It is that we turn each truth that we learn about God into matter for meditation before God, leading to prayer and praise to God.

Knowing God is a more complex business than knowing another person. If we spend the rest of our lives at it, there will still be more to comprehend. But the marvel of it is that God's riches are opened up to us to explore."        J.I.Packer
