Power and Promise – studies for Lent 2015

Power and Promise by Peter JensenLent is coming up shortly (it starts Wednesday 18th February).

Some churches observe Lent – others don’t. Either way, the forty days leading up to Easter are a great time to encourage church members to reflect on God’s Word, and to understand how all of God’s promises find their ‘yes’ in Christ.

“This Lent, join Dr Peter Jensen in his new book, Power and Promise, as he explores God’s faithfulness and sovereignty from Adam to Abraham.

The opening chapters of the Bible are a majestic introduction to God, his Word, and the world as we know it. In Power and Promise, the former Archbishop of Sydney marvels at the intricacies of the rich landscape that is Genesis 1–15.

Through these chapters we also see the heartbreaking history that stemmed from humanity’s rejection of its Creator, and the certain hope offered in God’s covenants.

With 40 daily devotions and questions for group discussion and personal reflection, this book is an ideal resource for challenging Christian faith, devotion and obedience in the lead-up to Easter.”

Tom Mortier“Tom Mortier never paid much attention to the discussion about voluntary death in his country.

‘I was like just about anyone else here in Belgium: I didn’t care at all,’ he said. ‘If people want to die, it’s probably their choice. It didn’t concern me.’

But in April, 2012, ten years after the law changed to allow euthanasia, Mortier, a university lecturer, received a message at work…”

Can we talk about Islam?

Centre for Christian Living“One thing that most Australian Christians and Muslims share is a frustration with the standard media-driven categories in which nearly all religious claims or subjects are discussed in our society. Clichés, misunderstandings and misrepresentations are common. Even simply talking publicly and clearly about religious teachings and practices is often seen as undesirable, inappropriate and divisive.

Why is that? And could things be different?…”
