‘Unleash the Word’ by Karen Soole

This is for all those who lead some sort of group Bible study, whether you’re leading your family, home groups, One 2 One, part of youth work or any of the other small group settings, this book will be of great help to you.  It’s a nourishing reminder of the why we do small group Bible study, as well enormously practical in how to lead a group through a passage in a way that stimulates discussion. It will help fulfil the aim of letting “God’s word dwell richly in us”.  It’s also short and very easy to read.



‘FIEC Primer’

Primer is designed to help us stay theologically sharp and engaged. Each issue focuses on one area of theology, surveying current debates alongside historical perspectives. Not every article is easy reading — but it is all good stuff.  Why not take an article and read it and discuss it with a friend. Think of it as tasty meal out with a good friend, not something we can do every day but good to carve time in the diary for.

The cross and resurrection provide the pattern for discipleship today, calling Christians to a radical new way of living.
