Run with endurance

For the next few Sunday mornings, we're reading a fresh book of the Bible, full of familiar imagery - a boat drifting away from its moorings, athletes running long distance, a stadium full of supporters, veterans who have themselves run the same race, and made it to the finishing line, and many more.

I will add further resources here, for anyone who wants to find out more about this great book, by watching or reading at home.

A great place to begin is by going over to the Bible Project and watching an introduction to the letter.

Honest Evangelism

Rico Tice writes, as he speaks, with endearing frankness. He is real about himself, and real about how it feels to want to talk to friends about Jesus, without really knowing how to do it, when we're always afraid of destroying precious friendships. and not usually keen to sound like a freak.

This is what it says on the cover - an honest book - spelling out the inevitable cost of speaking to friends about Jesus, as well as the cost to them if we remain silent. An honest account of mistakes made, and lessons learned.  Good for the heart. Truth for the head. Help for each one of us. You can obtain a copy from here.

Christians in Science

This is a great place to look for answers to all kinds of questions about science and Christian faith. Christians in Science have collected a variety of pdfs, articles, audio resources, videos, as well as a collection of links to further information. They’ve worked hard. It’s an excellent collection. The materials are for Christians without a scientific background, explaining the relevant science and addressing any issues that it presents for a Christian.

Happy hunting!

Capturing God

A new book from Rico Tice, and perhaps his best book so far. Rico takes a single scene, a picture that captures the truth about God.

He writes for Christians of all ages and stages of life and faith, and in a style that is suitable for friends and family members, colleagues and neighbours, who are interested to know more. He writes simply and clearly, with refreshing honesty, often telling stories against himself, which are always winsome and worth hearing.
