Stronger Than the Sword by Faith Cook


Though the characters are fictitious, they represent the truth. Their lives are interwoven with historical figures, such as John Bunyan. Set during a time of great persecution, the focus is on a typical family living in Somerset at that time. The lesson is clear: we do not fear those who kill the body, but must have faith that is ‘stronger than the sword’.
A farmer, searching the moors at night for his son, missing after a skirmish in the English Civil War, stumbles across a Royalist soldier lying severely injured in a ditch. His decision to help the man will have surprising repercussions in years to come, both for his own family and for the stranger whose life was saved at great personal cost to his rescuers.
Set in times when to refuse to conform to the forms of worship imposed by the state was to risk fines or imprisonment, The circumstances of the lives of the central characters are set in the context of these stirring historical events.
These people are representative of the countless numbers of Christians worldwide who, down the centuries, have demonstrated a faith in the living God which is stronger than the sword – a faith that prevails even though a civil power may attempt to crush and annihilate it. As such, their example challenges Christians today to remain faithful to the truths of Scripture, cost what it may and however subtle the forms in which persecution may be presented.

God Hears by Stephanie Carmichael


In this book children will learn that God wants us to talk to him and he hears us no matter what the time and no matter where we are. I can talk to him whether I feel happy or sad. I can say "thank you", "please help" and "sorry".

 The first three or four years of a child’s life are a wonderful time. Children are discovering so much about themselves and about their world. It is a delight—and often lots of fun—to watch the changes taking place in front of our eyes. Helping a child learn about God during these formative years is both a great privilege and a unique challenge. Books for Little Ones is a series of simple books written specifically for this age group (1–4 year olds). Along with beautiful photos, each book provides age–appropriate teaching about God and us, in a way that encourages your child to take the first steps of faith—first steps on what will be, God willing, a lifetime journey of growing in the knowledge and love of God. Extensive tips and ideas are also provided for parents.

John Knox: Who Will You Save? By Catherine Mackenzie


Look inside the book
John Knox was a bright young lad who grew up to be a strong fighter for freedom and liberty. He had a gentle but fiercely loyal heart and became a stalwart defender of the reformed faith. He thundered the truth that neither good works, popes or priests can save you from sin - but Christ alone. This fiery Scot refused to give in to religion or royalty - it was the Bible, the Word of God that was his standard.
