New From Martin C. Haworth – A Clearing of the Mists: In Pursuit of Wisdom upon the Scottish Hills

A Clearning of the Mists by Martin C. HaworthThe mountains of Scotland have long drawn people to their rugged peaks and rolling tops. Drawn by the physical quest, the desire for solitude or for many, the deeper search for purpose and meaning in their life experience.

Martin C. Haworth was drawn to wild places, searching for that connection with something pure and great. In that search, he has known the spiritual glimpses that God communicates to us through the awe-inspiring grandeur of wild places. Join him in this devotional journey through the Scottish hills.

Praise for A Clearing of the Mists:

“Most hill walkers and mountaineers appreciate that there is more to the experience than reaching the summit and enjoying the view. “A Clearing of the Mists” helps us navigate through a number spiritual themes brought to life by the experiences of the author as he climbs the mountains of Scotland.”
-Mike Pescod, Abacus Mountaineering and Chairman, Fort William Mountain Festival, Fort William

“In a remarkable blend of Scripture, personal experience and devotional style, Martin Haworth journeys through the awe inspiring wonder and grandeur of the Scottish hills to the glory and honour of the Creator of all things. Every chapter opens up a new perspective on the realities of life as one man comes to know and understand the saving grace of his Creator God.”
-Wayne Sutton, Senior Pastor, Carrubbers Christian Centre, Edinburgh

“… combines first hand testimony to the power of God in creation and the revelation of God in Scripture. The hand of God revealed in what He has made and the heart of God revealed in what He has said. Martin takes us on his personal journey in a way that invites us to join him in the growing discovery of the goodness of God.”
-Stephen Gaukroger, Director of Clarion Trust International

New From Carine MacKenzie: The Promise: How God Told the World about Jesus

The Promise by Carine MackenzieAt the beginning of time a promise was made by God. He promised to save from sin by sending his Son, the Saviour. One after the other people heard the message and told the world about God’s plan to send a Saviour, God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

The promise that was made in the Garden of Eden came true in the Garden tomb, when the Saviour who was sacrificed, crushed death and came back to life.

All through history God had told the world that this would happen – and it did!

The promise was kept.
