Reformers Book Review: The Whole Armor of God (Iain M. Duguid)

Posted by Andrew Deligiorgakis on

TRANSCRIPT: G'day, Andrew here from Reformers Bookshop, just wanting to talk to you about Iain Duguid's book "The Whole Armor of God". The Christian life is a battle, and it's a spiritual battle where we fight against sin and the devil - with temptations and all things that draw us away from God, and the way that He desires for us to live. In this book, Iain talks about how Christ wore spiritual armour, and it's that armour that God gives to us to actually protect us in battle, and prepare us for battle. And one of the things that...

Reformers Book Review: Jesus and the Lions' Den (Alison Mitchell)

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

TRANSCRIPT: G'day, Tom here from Reformers Bookshop. Jesus and the Lion's Den is a new book in the Tales that Tell the Truth series: "The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross"; "God's Very Good Idea" are two other great books in that series. But this book tells you the true story about Daniel, and it's got Catalina's beautiful illustrations showing you how Daniel was... the true story of Daniel... but the great thing about this book is that when you get to the end of the story... where are we... it's not the end! It's not the end, and what...

Book Review: Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon, Wife of Charles H. Spurgeon (Ray Rhodes)

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

Book Review by Shamira Eglinton I couldn’t put this book down as I came to love and know Susanna Spurgeon better. This book shows Susie’s devotion to her husband Charles Haddon Spurgeon and the ways she loved and supported him. It shows how, with ordinary means, she did some amazing ministries including the book fund and church planting. Her desire to serve poor pastors was shown throughout and she did this with great generosity and hard work. Susie was also such a great example of suffering well. There are so many great lessons in this book as well as just the joy...

Book Review: Growing in Godliness (Lindsey Carlson)

Posted by Andrew Deligiorgakis on

Book Review by Cassie Watson Cassie Watson is a ministry apprentice at Merrylands Anglican Church, working to see women grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus. You can follow her blog or connect with her on Twitter Christian books aimed at teenagers are very hit and miss. I read plenty as a teenager which were essentially self-help books with a few out-of-context Bible verses thrown in. It was refreshing, then, to read Lindsey Carlson’s excellent book Growing in Godliness: A Teen Girl’s Guide to Maturing in Christ. There aren’t too many books for youth out there that are helpful and biblical, but this is...
