Grace Notes By Dr Ken Baker
Paperback: $15.44
Prints in 3-5 business days
A “grace note” is a music notation that the individual performer has to interpret for himself. Isn’t that amazing? Here’s the main melody (the composer seemed to say), and... More > sort the rest of it out for yourself! It’s like a parable for how to do life. There are general broad principles to follow, like the Ten Commandments, but the real fun comes in the grace notes, the extra bits that you learn to play by feel. The New Testament word is Charis. In modern Greek it’s the word for birthday present! Imagine that. Something you just don’t deserve at all, but which is rather nice and makes you smile inside. This is a prayer journal: that is to say, it’s a daily-collected random assortment of prayers, notes from books that I’m reading and reflections on my daily reading of the Bible. Some of these pieces made it into sermons, or even into magazine articles. Most languished in online blogs, until summoned into service into this little book of grace-notes. Hope you hear the song.< Less

More > settling of the land under their occupation. This is a devotional day-by-day study through the Biblical text, taking about a month, to ask the title question "What do these stones mean?" Joshua's stone marker was intended to provoke a few questions that this little book aims to answer:Who is God? Is He the same today? Can the promises to the people of Joshua be appropriated by the people of Jesus? Does God still move in power today?< 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

Taking one Psalm for a whole month requires calm development of the skill of listening. But Ken's conviction is that God loves to speak to us. It requires a conscious recognition of one’s... More > prejudices and preconceived ideas, and then a dropping of one’s guard. God, you will find, is happy to work with us where we are. 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

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
