Adrian & Celia Reynolds Discuss God’s Design for Intimacy on In the Market with Janet Parshall

And Then He Knew Her: A Biblical View of SexThis week Adrian and Celia Reynolds sat down with Janet Parshall to discuss God’s design for sex and intimacy, answering some of life’s most difficult questions.

CLICK HERE to listen to the interview.

About The Book:
Do we really need a book about sex? In a world seemingly obsessed, should this be a subject that stays ‘in the bedroom’? Adrian and Celia Reynolds explore what the Bible teaches about sex. What is sex for? Why is it important? And why does it belong in marriage? Taking on board these simple truths and applying these realities to your own life will ensure that your view of sex is no more and no less than God intends.

Praise For And Then He Knew Her:

“… A great introduction for those who don’t know what God has to say about His good gift. And a profitable reminder for those who have already searched the Scriptures.”
-Robin & Ursula Weekes, Emmanuel Church, Wimbledon

“Adrian and Celia take us back to God’s Word and explore how sex is described in the Bible. By doing so they open our eyes to profound truths; as husband and wife experience the close oneness of sexual intimacy they not only point towards a greater truth (Christ and the church) but they also learn and discover something of the very nature of God himself…This excellent short book will enrich any marriage.”
-Greg & Harriet Strain, Spicer Street Church, St Albans

“…no couple will read this without benefit, and every Christian should rejoice in the deeper, richer, more joyful and long lasting the Bible’s view on the matter is than that offered by the world! A brilliant little book and a healthy corrective!”
-Wallace & Lindsay Benn, Retired from Church of England ministry

Celia and Adrian ReynoldsAbout The Authors:
Adrian Reynolds is Director of Ministry of the Proclamation Trust and also serves as associate minister at East London Tabernacle Baptist Church, London.

Celia Reynolds tutors students for the Cornhill Training Course, serves in the church and also works locally as a Community Parent. Along with husband Adrian they run conferences for and work with married couples.

Zack Eswine Discusses Spurgeon’s Sorrows on In the Market with Janet Parshall

Many people struggle with depression, even some very well-known Christians. This week, Zack Eswine, Senior Pastor of the Riverside Church in St Louis, Missouri, joined Janet Parshall on In the Market to tell the story of Charles Spurgeon and his battle with ‘the dark night of the soul.

CLICK HERE to listen to the interview.

Spurgeon's Sorrows: Realistic Hope for those who Suffer from Depression by Zack EswineAbout The Book:
Christians should have the answers, shouldn’t they? Depression affects many people both personally and through the ones we love. Here Zack Eswine draws from C.H Spurgeon, ‘the Prince of Preachers’ experience to encourage us. What Spurgeon found in his darkness can serve as a light in our own darkness. Zack Eskwine brings you here, not a self-help guide, rather ‘a handwritten note of one who wishes you well.’

Praise for Spurgeon’s Sorrows:

“…Spurgeon from early years to final days found dark distress ever hovering on the edges of his mind and sometimes launching an all out assault on his very being. How he managed all this, by the grace of God, both for himself and for others, drives both the gripping content and the riveting literary style of Zack Eswine in Spurgeon’s Sorrows.”
-Tom Nettles, Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

“The river of life often flows through sloughs of despond. Charles Spurgeon knew that well… Ditto Zack Eswine in this unusual, refreshing, sensible book… Read it, and take it to heart.”
-David Powlison, CCEF Executive Director, Senior Editor, Journal of Biblical Counseling

Zack EswineAbout Zack Eswine:
Zack Eswine is the Senior Pastor at the Riverside Church, St Louis, Missouri. He previously served as Assistant Professor of Homiletics at Covenant Seminary, St Louis. He is also an accomplished musician and songwriter.

Orlando Saer Discusses ‘Big God’ on In the Market with Janet Parshall

Orlando Saer In the Market
Last week Orlando Saer joined Janet Mefferd on In the Market to discuss his book Big God: How to approach suffering, spread the gospel, make decisions and pray in the light of a God who really is in the driving seat of the world. Listen to their conversation here: LINK.

About the Book:
Knowing a God with his hands well and truly on the steering wheel should bring great comfort to believers. But often it just leaves us scratching our heads in confusion. Why then do bad things happen? Where does that leave ‘free will’? Does God choose us or do we choose God? What’s the point of praying if God already knows what he’s going to do?

Orlando Saer tackles these questions – and more – in a straightforward and engaging way. If you sometimes struggle to understand the way God works in the world, or to explain it to others, you will find light here. You’ll also be left with a new appreciation of just how big the God of the Bible really is.

Praise for Big God:

“If God has seemed absent, He might start appearing for you in surprising places if you take on board Saer’s words here. Accurate, biblical, clear, short, serious and practical… thinking meets life.”
-Mark Dever ~ Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President of 9Marks.org, Washington, DC

“Cosmic practicality… he peels off the cultural shrink-wrap from this massive doctrine and thus gives wings to Christian living – and mission. Here is medicine for the soul!”
-R. Kent Hughes ~ Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

About the Author:
Orlando Saer is the Senior Pastor of Christ Church Southampton where he is involved in training and discipling university students. He has previously served churches in Sydney, London and Surrey. He is married to Libby and they have four children.

Where to Buy:
Big God by Orlando Saer is available at any good  Christian bookstore. If you don’t have a Christian bookstore near you, you may want to consider purchasing a copy from one of the online book retailers listed below:
