How To Deal With False Teaching

 How To Deal With False Teaching

My studies on what the Bible says about false teaching and false teachers are now available as a paperback here. 

The purpose of these nine studies is to alert Christians to the serious dangers of false teaching, to the nature of false teaching, to the horrific impacts of false teaching that are described in the Bible, and to the many warnings against false teaching given in the Bible.

It also identifies the kinds of false teaching that can be observed in contemporary Christianity.



Encounters with Jesus

Encounters With Jesus

I have also published the 'Encounters with Jesus' meditations that appeared as Thoughts for the Week some years ago.

This collection of meditations looks briefly at forty encounters between Jesus and various people from Luke's Gospel. Here you will catch a glimpse of both the sheer authority and the intimate compassion of Jesus Christ. Here you will be encouraged to both trust and love him as you put yourself in these encounters.                                                     

It is available as a paperback here.



Saints and sinners

Saints and Sinners

My husband, who has frontotemporal dementia, has written a number of poems, mostly about people in the Bible. 

They express the sovereign power and grace of God, sometimes in quite a humerous way.

I have published them as a paperback, available here.

GODS WORD FOR YOU acknowledges that God exists, that He loves us with an incredible love, and that He has spoken and continues to speak to us in the Bible, His written Word. Over and above all, this site affirms that God, in a manner totally contrary to how we would think and act, has provided in and through Jesus Christ His eternal Son, a way of forgiveness in which we can live in his presence guilt free, acquitted and at peace.
