Purpose-Driven Church

Rick Warren

Format 145x200,
528 pages,
ISBN 5-88930-036-9

You constantly ask youself, «How do I make my church grow?». However Rick Warren, the founding pastor of the well-known «Saddleback», one of the largest churches in America, believes that we need to be asking ourselves a different question: «What prevents my church from growing?», because in a healthy church growth is a natural life process. Rick Warren is convinced that for healthy growth the church fellowship needs to be driven by God-given purposes, building on the foundation of the five New Testament goals set for the Church by Jesus Himself.

 


Phantastes
Phantastes

Phantastes

George McDonald

Size: 130x200mm,
240 pages.,
ISBN 5-88930-035-0

Throughout his adult life, CS Lewis repeatedly asserted that George MacDonald was his `master,' his mentor. Without MacDonald's works (and this one in particular), there may never have been a Lewis as we know him. Besides that, MacDonald has heavily influenced such other creators of fantasy as JRR Tolkien, Charles Williams, and GK Chesterton. Madeleine L'Engle calls MacDonald the `Grandfather' of all who attempt to understand life through fantasy. Indeed, he is a grandfather of modern fantasy of sorts.

This particular novel had a profound impact on CS Lewis's conversion to Christianity. He claims that it `baptized' his mind, and that it was this book which really got the ball rolling for Lewis's path back to his faith. Phantastes is about a young man named Anodos who finds himself in another world (called Fairy-land) one morning. As he wanders around Fairy-Land, he has a series of adventures and learns many valuable lessons. Along the way he meets many strange creatures, some terrifying and some beautiful.

«The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass Aged 37 3/4»

Adrian Plass

Format 120x165,
224 pages,
Illustrations
ISBN 5-88930-029-6

«My most successful book, „The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass“, came out of immense pain from the church; and humor was a way to deal with it. I'll never be as unhappy enough to write such a funny book  —  I received letters from lots of people saying how it freed to them to be themselves with God. Humor is always benvolently subversive  —  it leaves us leaning back in our chair, laughing, and realizing how silly we are, and God laughs with us. We take ourselves too seriously». (Adrian Plass)
