New Book by John Suggit

Fifty Gobbets
from The New Testament
and Some Nuggets

by John N Suggit
ISBN – 978-0-620-88016-9
@ R70

Gobbets are brief extracts from literary writings, here taken from the New Testament, with the aim of helping clergy, ministers and all readers who are ready to explore its riches, to discover more than the text seems to say.

Some endorsements:
“This book contains a wealth of information, based on sound exegesis and an excellent knowledge of the interpretation of scripture, and, very importantly, a most welcome focus on the way in which these Scriptural Gobbets may be appropriated in a meaningful way in our current context”.[Professor Francois Tolmie, University of the Free State.]

“The gobbets provide readers with an interpretation of various passages of Scripture from several critical angles. They highlight the subtle nuances of the biblical text succinctly, whilst simultaneously making it accessible to a lay person as well as the theologian. They will empower preachers, bible study group leaders and seekers with a wonderful tool to engage with Scripture. The author remains true to the integrity of God’s word that can only aid the credibility and relevance of the sacred text for this momentous time in our history. I highly recommend these life-giving gobbets that can only aid that most exacting discipline of expository preaching.” [Eddie Daniels, Bishop of Port Elizabeth.]

CHILDREN, CHURCH AND THE LAW: A Practical Guide for Churches on the Children’s Act and Other Laws Relating to Children This practical guide offers an overview of the Children’s Act and how it relates to churches and Children’s institutions and ministries.

Its purpose is to promote the protection and wellbeing of children in all aspects of church and community life. The book outlines general principles of the Act and examines issues around the safety and well-being of children, issues such as rights and responsibilities of both children and carers, and how to confront issues such as child labour, child trafficking and other abuses. It’s a very practical book, written in simple English in a question-and-answer format. Its full colour format allows for easy reference to the different sections. The book includes a glossary of terms used, real life examples of application of the different principles, and snippets that illustrate the principle being described.

A Southern African Multilingual Hymn Collection

  A SOUTHERN AFRICAN MULTILINGUAL HYMN COLLECTION

Full music edition  @ R100

A collection of new and old hymns for the various seasons of the Church year.

also for Morning and evening Prayer, Baptism, Confirmation, Ordination, Weddings, etc. etc.

from the Editor:  “it seemed counterproductive to create something which would supplant existing vernacular and imported hymnals which already formed an integral part of mainstream worship.  Instead it seemed best to fill the gaps providing existing hymns by local authors that are perhaps not widely available…..This collection in no way claims to represent the fullness of Southern Africa theological, musical, textual and cultural styles.  It simply aims to represent aspects of our diverse reality”. ..        AJ Bethke
