The disciples walked with Jesus outside the four walls of the temple and learned what sharing the Kingdom message was truly all about. In the Descent to Compassion, the author takes the reader beyond Sunday morning service, past evangelism projects, and out into the highways and hedges where life happens and does not stop for a 30-minute sermon. The author takes the reader to where Jesus is walking and working everyday, desiring His people to join Him in the work. Divine moments happen everyday because God is always at work. Each and everyday we get up, if we open our eyes, we can see the hurting and we can see Jesus actively pursuing their hearts. We have the option of joining Him or walking away. Through experiencing these moments of divine encounter, our lives receive fresh meaning. Living this kind of compassionate lifestyle keeps one other-focused instead of self-focused. Good works have been prepared in advanced for us and the Lord is ready to lead us by the hand to discover where those works exist. The Descent to Compassion speaks of how to live a life full of inspiration and true fulfillment as the reader follows Christ into the sea of humanity all around. Jesus touched the untouchables and He is asking His people to descend to the place of humility and compassion and touch those whom He would touch- every hurting heart.

South Africa has a rich and complex history of Church-State relations. It is diverse, telling a story of how the Church was used as an instrument of colonisation, how sections of the Church endorsed policies of segregation, but also how other parts of the Church fought a long and brave battle to see the Apartheid regime toppled. It has been almost two decades since the end of Apartheid and as change is ringing in the social, political and ecclesiastical spheres of South Africa, it is necessary to revisit the notion of Church-State relations in this country. Coming from a past where the Church held a dominant position in society – both in the promotion of, and in the resistance to, the Apartheid system – the Church now finds itself in a new context; namely a Constitutional Democracy. In this setting its voice has to compete with other voices, its power is limited since it is merely one role-player in a society which is trying to find its feet. What does this mean for the identity, place and role of the Christian Church? What is the responsibility of the State to the society which it serves? This collection of essays seeks to address these questions. It does so by listening to prominent voices which have spoken, and still speak boldly on this topic, voices reflecting how Church- State relationships have influenced the social structures and systems across the globe. It offers some suggestions for a prudent Church-State relationship in South Africa, which will enable the formation of a society which can enjoy its freedoms in the context of justice, selflessness and hope. In these pages the reader will discover that the State has a greater responsibility than simply overseeing the implementation of government policies. Moreover, the Church has a greater role to play than merely being concerned with spiritual matters. It is argued that the Church and State cannot be the same entity, nor should the lines between Church and State be blurred, for this will lead to the distortion of both the Church and State thereby diminishing their primary functions. At the same time, social justice, the dignity of all people and the moral formation of a nation depend on a Church-State relationship that is critical, honest, transparent and which will not shy away from collaborating when such work is clearly for the benefit of society as a whole. This book is not the final word on Church- State relationships, but aims to encourage new discoveries and continued conversations on what it means for the Church and the State to be effective and relevant in the South African context. The essays offer a diverse range of perspectives, and although these are not the only voices to be heard, they will stimulate conversation, benefitting society at large.

Simon Peter is God’s Fisherman, and this, in a real sense, is his book. He and I go back a long way. When I first put myself in his shoes, imagining how he must have felt in the aftermath of Jesus’ arrest and his own denial of him (“Despair”) I was a third-year student at Manchester University, on my final vacation and studying hard for exams. By the most recent (“Nets for a New Catch”), I was less than three years from retirement and a grandparent.
This is a collection of poems and performance pieces for Christian worship. Most are preceded by the biblical text which inspired them. There are six chapters of thematically linked pieces, with Simon Peter getting a chapter to himself.

This book is a Bible study from a Pentecostal perspective about the Spirit-filled Christian experience of speaking on tongues. It explores the origin of tongues and answers these and many other questions:
- Is speaking in tongues the biblical evidence of receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit?
- Did speaking in tongues pass away with the close of the early church and the canonization of the Scriptures?
- Are there two types of tongues? Three?
- How are tongues to be used in the assembly of believers?
- What are the benefits of praying in tongues?
“Speaking in Tongues” takes an in-depth look at biblical passages as well as the underlying language, and shares the opinions of others to form a conclusion about this Pentecostal phenomenon.
If you want to know more about speaking on tongues and spiritual manifestations in the church, this study is for you.
