Canon J.John

Canon J.John communicate profound truths in a fun and inspiring way. In this link entitled how to become a Christian he gives 4 reasons for faith and talks about how God wants to communicate with us and how He came into the world we know so that we can connect with Him.  So who is this God? We all have different ideas of what God is like. Many of us imagine him as a stern old man, ready to point the finger and tell us off, or as the ‘Great Architect’ who set the world in motion then sat back and observed us from a distance. Why not look beyond these images and discover something more about who God really is and exactly how he feels about us.

Rumours of Another World

Philip Yancy

What on earth are we missing? Philip Yancey believes we are missing the supernatural hidden in everyday life. In Rumours of Another World, Yancey investigates the natural world and discovers the supernatural hiding in plain view. He grapples with why God made the world and what our role truly is, and seeks to answer the question, ‘How do I live in the natural world while expressing the values of the supernatural?’ Philip writes, ‘I have come to understand faith as the highest form of integrated encounter. Faith puts together, assembles, re-orders, accepting the entire world as God’s handiwork. We live among clues, like rescuers sifting through pieces of stained glass shattered by a bomb, and only with a blueprint or some memory of original design can we begin to connect the shards, to assemble them into a pattern that makes sense of our world. ‘Nature and super nature are not two separate worlds, but different expressions of the same reality. To encounter the world as a whole, we need a more supernatural awareness of the natural world.’ Yancey invites readers to join him on a journey of discovery. He challenges us to tune into ‘rumors of another world,’ and connect the seen with the unseen. He promises that the grace-filled result will be a life of beauty, purpose, freedom, and faith.

Making Sense of God

An Invitation to the Sceptical

We live in an age of scepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it’s easy to wonder: why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives?

In this thoughtful and inspiring book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites sceptics to consider that Christianity is as relevant now as ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice and hope – and Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet all these needs. Written for both sceptic and believer, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.

Reason for Belief

Belief in an age of scepticism

As the pastor of an inner-city church in New York City, Timothy Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced ‘doubts’ sceptics bring to his church, as well as the most important reasons for faith.

In THE REASON FOR GOD, he addresses each doubt and explains each reason.Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and reasoning to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief, held by thoughtful people of intellectual integrity with a deep compassion for those who truly want to know the truth
