Witness : A Fresh Look At The New Testament Church
He died for them.
They lived for Him.
No matter what happened-threats, beatings, stoning, exile, or imprisonment-the leaders of the infant Christian church were determined to take the good news of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection to the entire world. That was their mission, their sole purpose in life.
In this fresh, unified narrative their stories and letters are arranged in chronological order-Luke’s account of the various missionary journeys interspersed with the letters the apostles wrote to the churches. Written in modern language and free from the disjointed interruption of chapter or verse, this is the message of God’s love for humanity and the astonishing power of that love to change lives.

John Chrysostom : The Preacher In The Emperor’s Court$11.99Add to cart
There was something about John Chrysostom and the words he spoke that lit up his world.
He was an important leader of the early church, known so much for his preaching and public speaking that he was given the nickname Golden Mouth. He spoke his mind and followed his convictions. He refused to host the lavish social gatherings that his predecessors had laid on. This meant that John Chrysostom really annoyed the wealthy citizens of Constantinople. He spoke out against how many influential Christians cared little for the poor.
“It is madness to fill your cupboards with clothing while other human beings stand naked and trembling with the cold so that they can hardly hold themselves upright.”
It didn’t matter if you were rich or poor John spoke the truth – emphatically. Even the empress fell under his criticism which eventually led to his exile and death.
Samuel Rutherford : The Law, The Prince And The Scribe$11.99Add to cart
When Samuel Rutherford picked up his pen he changed lives, maybe even across continents. What he wrote influenced the American constitution but where his real power and passion was felt was in the letters that his warm pastor’s heart wrote to the people of his parish.
His book Lex Rex was burned on a pyre but his notes of comfort and wisdom were cherished by those he cared to guide and counsel.
Accused of treason he died of illness before there was time to make him a martyr and on his gravestone today, just west of the Bell Tower in St. Andrews Cathedral are engraved the striking words that sum up his life, “Acquainted with Emmanuel’s Love’.
