The Good God – Rediscovering the Gospel by John Koe

“Go back and find out what happened at the Cross,” said God.

That’s exactly what he did. After years as a Christian and a preacher of the Word, Pastor and Bible teacher John Koe was transformed when he gained a fresh, God-given understanding of the finished work of Jesus on the Cross. Could it be possible that all meaning in life is about enjoying Christ and allowing Him to live through us?

 

For more than a decade, John has preached this simple yet profound message in nations across the globe. Through his ministry, God has saved, healed, delivered and restored many; Pastors and church leaders with hearts rekindled have started numerous churches and Bible schools centred on this same message.

 

In The Good God, John expounds in plain language this truth of God’s infinite goodness expressed through the Person and redemptive work of Christ, and how we can enjoy an exhilarating and intimate relationship with Him because of what Jesus did. Grab your copy and discover the richness of this truth, and drink deeply of what God has provided, for a blessed and victorious life. 

Love without Limits by Nick & Kanae Vujicic

Then Nick met Kanae and everything changed.  But even with undeniable chemistry, they would have to navigate twists and turns worthy of a romantic comedy before becoming "one" in marriage.

The Way of the Shepherd by Dr Kevin Leman and Bill Pentak 

Find inspiration and a fresh perspective on the art of leadership in this account of a cub reporter who lands the interview of a lifetime and walks away with the keys to exceptional leadership. When the reporter meets with the most respected CEO in America, the businessman shares the seven secrets he learned long ago from his mentor, an eccentric but brilliant professor who taught him proven management principles that, while ancient in origin, are applicable in today’s fast-paced, high-tech world. The Way of the Shepherd is a compact, heart-warming story dotted with humor. It will teach you how to lead the people close to you so they will view their work as a calling rather than merely a job, a place to belong rather than a place to work. It shows leaders how to infuse work with meaning and how to engage, energize, and ignite their workforce and gives employees a better understanding of what makes for a quality work experience. It is a powerful metaphor for leaders that reaches back 5,000 years. It is . . . The Way of the Shepherd."

 More Precious than gold

More precious than Gold: 50 Daily Meditations on the Psalms by Sam Storms

In his third book of daily meditations, Sam Storms urges readers to not just enter into God's Word but to take the next step toward knowing him and his Word better. And the book of Psalms, Storms believes, is a great place to start, because Psalms is so popular and so very relevant to our experiences today.

In More Precious Than Gold, Storms combines years of life experience and his biblical and theological training to bring readers 50 brief, daily meditations that are both stylistically accessible and theologically substantive. Each meditation includes a historical or theological reflection on the psalm in context, a story that brings it alive, and creative tools to support the key idea. Storms also interweaves the words of such luminaries as Charles Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards, and John Piper to help readers better understand the concepts that are featured throughout Psalms: worship, prayer, joy, forgiveness, steadfast love, mercy, sin's consequences, the law of the Lord, and our relationship with our enemies.

Like the Psalter, Storms doesn't shy away from the tough issues. Instead, he encourages readers to experience through these daily meditations what he and generations of Christians have found to be true: that the whole of the Christian faith is about lifting God higher and magnifying his name - even during difficult times.

Jubilee and the Destiny of Nations by Li-Ann Thio

Whether God judges a nation to be a sheep or goat nation depends on whether it is a righteous nation which fulfills God’s plans for its destiny. How it treats Israel is key, as God promised Abraham He would bless/curse the nations that blessed/cursed Israel. In these last days before the Second Coming of Christ, the watchmen on the wall are commissioned to watch and pray. This book explores how the saints are to understand the times and to exercise their executive authority through prayer and prophetic intercession.

The Lord’s Jubilee, occurring once every 50 years, is a significant milestone in a nation’s walk towards or away from destiny. As Independent Singapore turns 50, the saints must act and intercede for national righteousness, so that our nation may be confirmed on the path to destiny and God’s blessings at Jubilee, and attain its call to be the Antioch of Asia.
