Paperback: $10.40
Prints in 3-5 business days
For one brief shining moment, the Lusitania, a British-built ocean liner, was the largest, fastest and most luxurious ship in the world. When she was torpedoed by a German submarine in May 1915, she... More > sunk in just under fifteen minutes, taking over 1200 passengers and crew to their death. The New York Times reported a “grave crisis… at hand” which was the question of Washington’s response to this outrage. Would the American government retaliate against this “monstrous act of aggression” by joining Britain and her allies against the Kaiser’s Germany? And here we come, immediately, to the first whiff of historical discussion which may, (or may not), validate the use of the word “Conspiracy.” Was there more going on here than meets the eye? If the writer for the New York Times could identify such a consequence with such rapidity, might not others do so too? In fact, if America’s joining the war was such an obvious consequence, could the calamity itself have been engineered to produce it?< Less

In this lecture, we will consider the work of the Quakers in relation to the Potato Famine during the years 1845-1848 with particular reference to County Cork. There are a few preliminary notes to... More > make. First, just who were the Quakers? In answer to this question, we’ll investigate their origin and development in Bandon (as an important West Cork market town) during the last years of the seventeenth century and into the next century. Second, we must sketch a picture of what this area of Ireland “looked like” during the years just before the Famine and attempt answers to the question: “Why was the Famine of 1846 so catastrophic?” The historical and geographical context has been described as “An explosion ready to happen.” So we ask, briefly: why was this the case? Third: a mention must be made of the social positioning of the Quakers around 1845. The intriguing question must be asked: “How did this [relatively small] group create such an impact?”< Less

Laughter and Grace is a joyous look at a serious subject. The conversations of Jesus have proved life-changing for countless millions of readers. The words that Jesus said still have the power to... More > radicalise the religious, pinprick the pompous and scandalise the over-serious. "Never has a man spoken the way this man speaks," (John 7:46). Ken has spent many years examining, discussing and enjoying the words of Jesus. He has worked as lecturer, pastor and teacher –and even as a stand-up comedian- in all kinds of different environments. But there is one constant: in every situation, once the words of Jesus have been allowed to stand in their naked power, untrammelled by any denominational agenda or philosophical baggage…once they speak fresh, then they accomplish change. As Charles Wesley put it, so beautifully, “He speaks, and listening to his voice, new life the dead receive.”< Less

“God must build our anointing strong, so He can lay His glory thick.” (Alisa Hope Wagner) But what is the Anointing? In this little book, the author examines Isaiah’s prophecy (in... More > chapter 61) and makes the challenge that the anointing that Jesus claimed for Himself at the beginning of His ministry is ours too, if we are in Christ. In Christ, we come into a wonderful new liberty of joy and praise. It’s the anointing, that breaks every last vestige of our old slave-chains As Steve Brown put it, so boisterously, "You ought to live your life with such freedom and joy that uptight Christians will doubt your salvation." As we consider the aspects of this empowerment, my God indeed “lay His glory thick”!< Less

Hebrews begins with an acknowledgment that “In many and various ways” he spoke in times past. He speaks the same Word, but there are still many and various ways in the speaking. But the more I listen, the more He can say. The more He says, the more I am changed. Jim George once said: “If you need a guide for your ongoing relationship with God, read Psalms.”< Less

More > including the author’s own reflections upon Patrick’s use of Scripture, and songs from the Carmina Gadelica. It is the author’s contention that Patrick can be fairly understood as A Celtic Charismatic, in his commitment to Scripture, his emphasis upon mission and in a lifestyle directed and empowered by the Holy Spirit. This book is intended as a conversation-starter, perhaps mostly with the Christians of Ireland, towards the recovery of a vital faith and vigorous response to the challenges of our day. “He who wants can laugh and jeer, but I shall not keep silent nor keep hidden the signs and wonders which have been shown to me by the Lord…”< Less
