Rt Reverend Saju Muthalaly, Bishop of Loughborough

Looking back, if I had known that I would be swamped in a full-blown flood in Rome, that both brakes would fail in the Alps, or that I would be sliding sideways on loose gravel towards a sheer drop, I may never have taken the Harley out of the garage. But God had other ideas… Read More »

Go Forth

Sharp pinnacles of slate grey stood fast against the driving rain. The falcon pair, lifelong companions, shuffled together, closer still inside their ornamental alcove. It was not good weather for hunting. Ancient stone cathedral spires adorned by clusters of budding crockets, which for the most part had remained unsullied by the elements, now found themselves blackened by a century of… Read More »

Sample Chapters: Live Deeply


I’ve changed.
I’m not the person I once was.
In my twenties I was primarily focused on my purpose. My goal was to discover why God had given me the gifts, skills, personality and opportunities I had been given. I wanted to ensure that I wanted to ensure that I lived from a sense of calling, that I was clear about my assignment and that I was moving forward with a clear sense of purpose.
In my thirties my focus began to shift… Read More »

Catching Our Attention

What does following involve? What does it commit us to? And most importantly, who exactly is it we are called to follow? Jesus did not say, ‘Come and find me.’ He said, ‘Come and follow me.’ There is a world of difference between looking for someone and being found by that person.

Throughout our lives we are all influenced by… Read More »

Claire Musters, writer, speaker, editor and host of the Woman Alive Book Club

The Bride’s leading lady, Efa, may be a noble woman, but she is as subject to the whims of the powerful men who surround her as any peasant might be.

NEW BOOK: Holy Grit

Are you a Christian? Or are you a disciple?

’Gives us a crystal-clear portrait of what it means to be a disciple.’
Phil Knox, Missiologist and evangelist at the Evangelical Alliance, author of The Best of Friends

Did you know that the word ‘Christian’ only appears three times in the Bible? But the word ‘disciple’ occurs more than 260 times?
