Book Stall Recommendations
A number of good Lent books have come out this year and we have a selection on the Bookstall. They are very helpful in maintaining a discipline of daily Bible reading. Here are two of them..
Easter Stories by Bob Hartman
Following the tried and tested formula of his earlier Lion Storyteller titles, Bob Hartman retells a selection of Easter stories in his own inimitable style. This collection of 23 stories includes the key Bible accounts of the events of the first Easter from Palm Sunday through to Jesus’ resurrection, encounters with his friends and followers, and the ascension. Bob Hartman’s retellings of familiar and sometimes serious tales are fresh and engaging, making these Bible stories accessible to the young and not-so-young. Line illustrations complement the text. As a bonus, this book includes some of Bob Hartman’s favourite storytelling tips.
Resilience in Life and Faith by Tony Horsfall and Debbie Hawker
Tony Horsfall and Debbie Hawker encourage us to develop our resilience and to prepare ourselves for the challenges that life throws at us in an increasingly difficult world. Through biblical wisdom and psychological insight, they show us how to understand ourselves better, appreciate our areas of strength and strengthen our areas of weakness.
Read this book if you want a faith that persists to the finishing line.
