Isaiah by the Day listed in Monergism’s Top 10 Books of 2011 – We were excited to learn that Isaiah by the Day: A New Devotional Translation by Alec Motyer was listed amongst Monergism’s top books of 2011. This book would be a great choice for starting your devotional reading off on the right foot in 2012. Watch the video clip below to see what the author has to say about this new book.
Death and the loss of loved ones is something that each of us must face in this life. When the time comes, this can be especially difficult for children who often do not have a fully developed biblical understanding of death and the life that follows. In How Do I Get to Heaven?, Nancy Gorrell strives to present a biblical view of death, with the hope that it may be a blessing for the young children that we (and Jesus) love.
Each chapter is only a few pages in length, answering questions like:
How can I get to heaven?
Do I have to buy salvation?
What is justification?
As new words are introduced, children are encouraged to write them down in a notebook to answer questions and reflect on what they are learning. This is an easy way to encourage your children in their writing and will allow you to introduce them to the idea of journaling. How do I get to Heaven? would work well for parents and grandparents to read aloud to children ages 4 to 7 at meal time or bed time. Children ages 8 and older should have not problem reading this book by themselves, but parents are encouraged to engage their children in discussion on the topics covered in each chapter.
About the Author:
Nancy Gorrell takes great delight telling about the Christian faith in simple ways for children to understand. She lives with her husband and family in California and teaches in a Christian school there.
“This little book is written for ordinary ministers who preach regularly to ordinary people in ordinary places… Most of us preach in gatherings that are smaller than we would wish and tougher than we might have hoped when we entered pastoral ministry… There is a voice on our shoulders who whispers as we prepare, and then as we preach, ‘Is it really worth it?”(From The Introduction)
Christopher Ash tells us that it is worth it. More than that, he sets out a charter for preaching that draws from the very roots of the Old Testament – showing us that nothing in the world is more worthwhile – for preaching is God’s strategy to rebuild a broken world.
About Christopher Ash:
Christopher Ash is an ordained minister in the Anglican Church and Director of the Cornhill Training Course, a one-year course designed to provide Bible-handling and practical ministry skills to those exploring their future role in Christian work.
