Brilliant Books: June 2019

We were so delighted with the response to our first Brilliant Books spotlight in March - thank you! We’re back again this Sunday (9th June) with three more excellent books for you. This time our books are all on the theme of personal, practical theology. Here they are:

Prayer, Eric Alexander

Prayer, Eric Alexander

We talk a lot about talking to God, but sometimes it can be daunting to get beyond the basics. In this book, renowned Scottish minister and writer Eric Alexander guides us through the Biblical basis to prayer and how to place it at the centre of our spiritual lives. There is also reassuring encouragement in the section on specific problems that all believers face as we pray.

Our Price: £4.50 (21% off RRP)

Before You Open Your Bible

Before You Open Your Bible, Matt Smethurst

This brand new pocket-sized book is approachable, grounded, witty and excellent. Taking the reader through nine brief chapters, the author looks at the different heart attitudes we must bring towards all Bible study. Short, powerful, and one of the best books to be released so far this year. Buy one for you and a friend!

Our Price: £1.50 (50% off RRP)

What Every Child Should Know About Prayer

What Every Child Should Know About Prayer, Nancy Guthrie & Jenny Brake

The latest in the ‘Every Child Should Know’ series, this book picks up on the prayer theme, but is beautifully written and illustrated. A treasure in itself, it relentlessly points the young reader to God. Great for children and parents to read together!

Our Price: £5 (50% off RRP)


All of these books will be available to buy in the Sunday services on Sunday 9th June. We have ordered several dozen books on a sale or return basis, so there will be plenty available for you to buy for yourself, or as a gift for a friend. Payment will be cash only. If you’d like a book but won’t be around that day, email books@stcsfc.org to make alternative arrangements.

Free Church Books have worked with us to provide these books - for more book reviews and their online shop, visit books.freechurch.org.
