Reasons to Believe by Philip NunnReasons to Believe
Philip Nunn discusses the basics of faith and asks whether Christianity makes sense. He answers questions such as: How certain can we be? Why is truth important? Are there no other ways to God than Jesus? He examines critical arguments against the Christian faith and shows why they are not sustainable.

Are there strong reasons to believe? Does God really exist? What 'type' of God is that? Is the God of the Bible still active today? Is the Bible reliable? How does Jesus make God known? What is the Christian world-view? Is God really interested in what I do now? How sure can I be of spiritual reality? Why is faith so important for Christians? Is my faith real, when I occasionally struggle with doubt? This is a book for unbelievers who are seeking a dependable faith. It is also a book for believers who sometimes have genuine doubts about their own faith. It is also for Christians who are keen to give answers to honest questions from their thoughtful friends. It is written with the conviction that Christianity is a reasonable faith. Moreover, the Christian story works: it changes people for the better, it is satisfying and it gives meaning to life. Is it worth your faith?

Paul's Letter to the Colossians by George Stevens, Douglas Pettman, Ernie Brown, George Bell, Gordon Kell, David AndersonPaul's Letter to the Colossians
In this compendium of six Bible talks, first broadcast on Premier Christian Radio in June and July 2000, various members of the "Truth for Today" team consider in a practical way the message of Paul's letter to the Christians in the church at Colossae. Each speaker expounded their allotted passage as the Holy Spirit directed. Some took a verse-by-verse approach, while others a more thematic one. In bringing this collection together, the individual approaches have been retained; but, to enable the book to be used for both devotional and reference purposes, the verses under consideration are clearly indicated.

George Stevens provides an overall Introduction to the letter, followed by a look at the first part of the letter, which culminates with the great statement that Christ is pre-eminent in everything. Douglas Pettman explores the subject of reconciliation, and the secret of the Church and its future with its Head. Ernie Brown opens up the simplicity of the Christian message: nothing but Christ is necessary, for Christ is everything. This has practical implications, and George Bell looks at the reality of what it means when Paul writes that Christ is our life. Gordon Kell explores the way in which service for Christ is worked out in our families and occupations. Finally, David Anderson closes the studies underlining the way in which prayer is necessary to under-pin actions and speech which testify that Christ is, indeed, everything.

Fruit for Christ's Labour by Yannick FordFruit for Christ's Labour
"He shall see the labour of His soul, and be satisfied", prophesied Isaiah. His prophecy was fulfilled by the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus, with wonderful far-reaching results. They are the fruit of the labour of Jesus: closely associated with our current and future blessing. The author explores some of this glorious fruit in this book.

To know God better is a compelling reason to study Bible themes from many different angles. The author looks at some word pictures that illustrate the great consequences of Christ's death and resurrection. His desire is that the reader might see something of Christ's wonderful character and consider what He delights in; and, as a result, have a renewed and strengthened affection for the Lord Jesus as they think about the fruit of His work. The focus of this book has been restricted to consider some of the ways in which the Lord Jesus relates to us individually, with the aim of encouraging a greater appreciation of His love to us. Whilst it is intended to be an encouragement to Christians, the author trusts that it may also be helpful to those who do not yet know the Lord Jesus in a personal way, but are curious to find out more.

The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ by A J PollockThe Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ
It is an historical fact that Jesus Christ actually rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven. In a survey encompassing Old and New Testaments as well as Lyttleton's Observations on the Conversion and Apostleship of St. Paul, Pollock affirms his thesis with characteristic eloquence.

This new edition conveys his message to the 21st Century reader.

Remembering my Creator since my youth by David AndersonRemembering my Creator since my youth
As its title implies, this book is the outcome of a lifelong application of Ecclesiastes 12:1. It is not primarily about the "science versus the Bible" debate but about the more important matter of what the Bible, the Word of God, teaches about creation; and the need for 21st-century Christians to stand for this teaching in an increasingly materialistic and secular world, marked by aggressive and hostile atheism. "Science, at its best, is only relative truth for today and may be proved wrong tomorrow; but Scripture is absolute truth which abides forever."

As a teenager the author experienced the penetrating effect of God's Word and after a career of over forty years as a practising industrial chemist he remains as convinced as ever of the accuracy and inerrancy of the Bible. As the uniquely reliable source of truth about all matters of the Christian faith, it should be no surprise that it clearly addresses the issues relating to the origins of the universe, the world and life itself. Indeed, creation is a bedrock under the whole of Bible truth. To deny, question, or even modify, the Genesis account is to challenge the truth of God. It's by faith that Christians understand that the universe was created by the word of God.

So what must I believe about creation? This apologia for the biblical view attempts to answer that crucial question.

Concerning Himself by J T MawsonConcerning Himself
This selection of papers on the great Subject of Scripture, the Lord Jesus Christ, is taken from a series entitled "Things Most Surely Believed" contributed to Scripture Truth magazine between 1934 and 1936 by its joint founding Editor, J T Mawson (1871-1943). They were first published in book form in 1936, but have been out of print for many years.  We are glad once again to make them available to a new generation of readers.

“The Holy Scriptures are the Word of God to us; to them we turn for light and instruction as to Christ and His work. Old and New Testament bear their united testimony to Him, and the revelation that they give is wholly satisfying.”

“The Word of God is the only authority upon which I base the assurance with which I have written of these things, and by the Word of God alone what I have written must be tested and judged.”

Thou Remainest by John Wilson SmithThou Remainest
This selection of papers setting forth the excellency and sufficiency of the Lord Jesus Christ is taken from those contributed to Scripture Truth magazine between 1909 and 1919 by John Wilson Smith (1842-1922) of Cumledge, Scotland. They were first published in book form in 1920 and reprinted c.1930, but have been out of print for many years.  We are glad once again to make them available to a new generation of readers.

"That pen is made of gold which writes of Him; the ministry which has the all-sufficiency of the Lord Jesus Christ, whether as Saviour, Lord, or Head of His body, for its primary theme is assuredly the ministry of the Spirit of God."

"He writes, not worn-out platitudes, nor of untried theories, but of a Person, well-known, out of the fullness of a heart that finds its joy in the Lord. … Yes, the servants of the Lord come and go; the ruthless hand of time changes everything beneath the sun; the world itself grows old, but Christ abides; and He is sufficient for all the vast needs of His saints on earth until He comes again; and then shall He still abide, the all-satisfying and eternally glorious object of the heart of His church – the Lamb's wife. And this I know well is the present joy and certain hope of the author."

Isaiah by Frank Binford HoleIsaiah
Collected together in a single volume for the first time, the series of articles entitled "Isaiah - Bible Study" by F B Hole, which first appeared in "Scripture Truth" magazine between 1956 and 1958, are now available in this brand new publication.

The richness of references to, and variety of figures used to represent, the great Subject of all Scripture, Christ, is noted from the start.

Past and future prophetic applications to Israel are set alongside words of encouragement and challenge for Christians today.

References made to the state of Israel at the time of writing have not been updated — the recent history of Israel over the last 50 years only serves to confirm the author's comments.

An Exposition of the Gospel of John by William Kelly edited, with additional notes, by Edward Elihu WhitfieldAn Exposition of the Gospel of John
This new third edition of William Kelly's outstanding 1898 work includes all of E.E.Whitfield's 1908 second edition notes plus revised indexes and additional appendices.

What are the exact words of the original Greek text of the Gospel of John? What do they mean? What is its purpose? What is its significance for us today? William Kelly (1821-1906) examines these questions in a commentary combining scholarly exegesis and analysis with devotional intensity.

Edward Elihu Whitfield's additional notes address, in an equally robust manner, theologians' criticisms of the Gospel of John itself during the ten years after Mr Kelly's book was first written.

The Transforming Power of Forgiveness by Philip NunnThe Transforming Power of Forgiveness
"One of the greatest problems among Christians today is bitterness and lack of forgiveness. It spreads like a poison in our communities."

In this book, the author explores forgiveness from a Biblical perspective. In doing so, he corrects a number of common misunderstandings that hinder authentic forgiveness. He wants his readers not only to receive God's great gift of forgiveness but also to forgive those who have sinned against them. He carefully leads his readers step by step away from the chains of bondage to experience the wonderful freedom which Christ has purchased for them. There is a transforming power in forgiveness!

"Who is Jesus?" by Cor Bruins, David Pulman, Peter Ollerhead and George BellWho is Jesus?

(Is Jesus God?, Is Jesus a Man?, Is Jesus Lord? and Is Jesus Head of the Church? together in one pocket-sized volume)

"Who is Jesus?" is the most important question which any of us must face. Our answer to that question will determine not only the way we live in this world but also our eternal destiny. This booklet sets out in a clear, understandable way the reasons why we should believe Jesus's claims to be the Son of God.

That Jesus of Nazareth was a real historical person is a well-attested fact. The evidence for His existence is greater than that for many historical figures, e.g. Julius Caesar. Yet many today would deny that He was truly Man. Because He is fully Man, yet at the same time fully God, He alone is the Saviour of the world.

"Why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46) are the telling words of Jesus. This booklet sets out the biblical view of the Lordship of Christ and challenges us to examine our response to His Lordship.

Who controls the church? In today's world, it is vital to have a biblical answer to this important question. The Lord Jesus is Head of His church, His body, controlling and directing it by His Holy Spirit. A church that does not answer to its Head is as lifeless as a headless body.

"Some problems Christians Face" by Gordon kell, Peter Ollerhead and Jonathan HughesSome Problems Christians Face

(The Christian and Temptation, The Christian and Hypocrisy, The Christian and Commitment and The Christian and Conflict together in one pocket-sized volume)

Satan is a past master in the art of temptation. After all, he has had thousands of years of experience in thus opposing the people of God. None of us, in ourselves, is immune from his attacks. This booklet helps us to understand the nature of temptation and looks at ways to overcome it.

Reality or pretence? Do not read this booklet unless you are prepared to be challenged by it! It surveys the Bible's teaching on hypocrisy, a subject that is all too prevalent in today's world.

This booklet cuts right across the easy-going 'What's in it for me?' attitude that characterises much of 21st Century living. It calls for a thoroughgoing commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ. Read it and be challenged!

"Divide and rule" seems to be Satan's policy in his attacks on the Church today. But why does his programme for conflict have to be so successful? This booklet takes a helpful look at the problems Christians face in getting on with one another.

"Waiting for the Coming" by J T Mawson"Waiting for the Coming"
People have all sorts of ideas about what the future holds. What is the truth about what lies ahead? The Bible records that Jesus said He would return. Is that true? and, if so, what are the consequences - for the Christian and the world?

In a series of Bible studies the author explores these and related issues: considering relevant questions, to which he discovers convincing answers. Importantly, he shows that the coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ will be in two stages - the coming for His saints (the Rapture) and with them (the Appearing).

In the light of these, we each need to face the challenge, "Am I waiting for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ?"

Psalm 119: A Commentary on the Entire Psalm by Cor BruinsPsalm 119: A Commentary on the Entire Psalm
Psalm 119 introduces God's Word as a treasury of spiritual resources for the Christian's journey through life. Finding this treasure requires daily Bible study. Meditating on each day's reading promotes growth in spiritual maturity, experience of spiritual renewal, and the Holy Spirit can maintain praise to God in a continuous spiritual revival.

Psalm 119 is the longest of all the 150 Psalms and, perhaps for that reason, its 176 verses are seldom or never read completely either in public or in private meditation or study. This is an immense loss. It has a great subject: the Word of God. It shows how that Word is a treasure trove of spiritual resources for the highs and lows of the Christian's journey through life. At the moment of conversion every Christian is enrolled as a student in God's school, and finding this treasure requires daily Bible study. Meditating on each day's reading helps promote growth in spiritual maturity, experience of spiritual renewal, and the Holy Spirit can maintain praise to God in a continuous spiritual revival.

Christ is My Beloved by George E. StevensChrist is My Beloved
George Stevens was born in Bath, Somerset, England just after World War II. At the age of about fourteen, he confessed Christ as the Son of God, but had no firm assurance of salvation until he heard the Gospel preached in a small "Brethren" hall in Hounslow. He was in his twenties at the time. Once assured of salvation, one of George's main Bible studies was "Christ in All the Scriptures". This led to a delight in the Song of Solomon to which he has returned many times during his Christian life. This book is one of the results. George was a primary school teacher for about thirty-two years before stepping down from a headship a few years ago.

The study of Christ in the Scriptures is heart-warming and encouraging at any time. The author's portraits of Christ in the Song of Solomon breathe life and reverence into the interpretation of a book that is so often misunderstood. For the most part, he uses Scripture to interpret Scripture - an exemplary method of Bible study. Where this is not possible, he has used the characteristics of natural life to bring about understanding. The Lord Jesus Christ is honoured on almost every page. Furthermore, he reveals the appreciation of love between the Messiah and Zion (along with that for the Church); and that Jerusalem can look forward to a bright future, after a period of severe persecution. This is a book that stirs up affection for the Son of the living God, leading the reader to worship the Father whose counsels and purposes are centred, as always, in Christ.

The Tabernacle's Typical Teaching by Algernon James PollockThe Tabernacle's Typical Teaching
Algernon James Pollock (1864-1957), was the eldest son born to a Christian banker and his wife in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. At the age of eleven he made a profession of faith in Christ. Early in life he was introduced to leading figures amongst the Brethren (John Nelson Darby was entertained in the home when Algie was about fifteen). He followed his father into banking, but his true calling was to share the treasure he had found in heaven, and he left to become a full-time evangelist. He was an indefatigable apologist from the pulpit and in print wherever he saw the Christian faith under attack. He wrote several books, but he is probably best known for over fifty critiques of deviations from Bible-based, Christ-centred Christianity. His ministry was not restricted to the United Kingdom; he travelled in the USA in 1898, and also visited Scandinavia, Spain, Germany and India. It was a measure of the international regard for his writings that he was selected to contribute a chapter to Torrey's series on "The Fundamentals".

This volume is a comprehensive exposition of "types" - people, objects, events, offices and activities - connected with the Tabernacle, the Priesthood, the Offerings and the Feasts in the Old Testament, which foreshadow their New Testament "antitypes" - the realities associated with Christ Himself.

The Epistle to the Colossians: An Expository Outline by Hamilton SmithThe Epistle to the Colossians
Written in 1933, but never before published in either book or serialised form, Hamilton Smith brings his easy-to-read style and pithy comments to bear on an epistle which is full of practical instruction for Christians, as we are viewed as the body of Christ on earth linked to our Head in heaven.

"Enticing words may easily play upon our ignorance: rationalism may appeal to the intellect, ritualism to the emotions and superstition to the imagination; but none of these things will reveal Christ to the soul, or form Christ in our lives. They do not lead to Christ. To meet all these evils and preserve us from them, the apostle presents Christ. Having received Christ, He is the power for our walk; we have everything in Him; we are identified with Him; we derive all nourishment from Him."

Hamilton Smith provides once again a great service in this volume in sharing the results of his own reading and studying of Colossians in order that another generation can enjoy the practical lessons of this epistle.

How to Overcome by J T MawsonHow to Overcome
Back in print after 40 years, and just as topical today as it was when first written, almost 100 years ago. Are you a Christian who desires to live for Christ, know you have the power of the Holy Spirit for this very purpose, but always find yourself defeated? Then this book is for you! The author looks at the enemies which Israel faced as recorded in the book of Judges, and how they won victories over them. He uses these as examples to show how the Christian can overcome five enemies: the World, the Flesh, the Devil, Earthly Things and Carnal Religion. The battle is on: are you prepared for victory?

What Does the Bible Teach? by R D MahersWhat Does the Bible Teach?
Jehovah's Witnesses' Bible study textbook is entitled "What Does The Bible Really Teach?", but a close examination of the Bible itself reveals that what it truly teaches is significantly at odds with their textbook's explanations. This booklet looks at some points of difference in relation to fundamental areas of Christian belief: who Jesus really is, what Jesus has done and will do, and what the future holds for the Christian. Writing in a polite, clear style, the author challenges the Jehovah's Witness reader to take up the Bible without prejudice, examine what it truly says on these vital issues and consider the consequences of accepting or rejecting the truth of its words
