Sleeping Giant: No Movement of God without Men of God (Kenny Luck)
Many pastors see the need but are at a loss for how to really engage men in their culture and church context. Deep down, they know they haven’t yet inspired men into the mission and vision of the local church on the same scale as women. Meanwhile, most men feel further detached from worship, left only with worldly expressions of manhood to fuel their identity.
Sleeping Giant is a punch in the gut and pat on the back for pastors and men worldwide, a powerful biblical approach that will bring them together and awaken some serious ministry potential. And a church that gets men right can slay another dragon: Global injustice.
Injustice against women, children, and all innocents is rooted in broken male culture. The Bible says “Just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one man many will be made righteous” (Romans 5:19). As the church disciples men into an identity and purpose that transcends culture, they will move from Adam and death over to Jesus and life.
You can see it taking place in Acts 2 following Pentecost, when widespread repentance and changing of men’s hearts brought God’s justice and relief to people. A masculine revolution happened then, and it can happen today.

A man after God’s own heart : God’s Relationship with David – and with you (R.T. Kendall)
Twice God says that in King David he had found ‘a man after my own heart’ (1 Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22). David was one of God’s favourites. This was so despite David having sinned so deeply. What is encouraging is that the Lord continued to use David after his time of backsliding.
David was a man with deep feelings. He was a poet and musician as well as being Israel’s greatest King and one of the greatest ever military leaders. David wrote that ‘the Lord confides in those who fear him’ (Psalm 25:14). It is a great honour to have someone confide in you – but to think that God would confide in a human being is amazing! David was someone with whom God chose to share his heart. If you wish to know what it is like to be confided in by God – to become a person after God’s own heart too – then this book will help you discover what such a relationship is like.

The Exemplary Husband : A Biblical Perspective (Stuart Scott)
God ordained marriage between a man and a woman so man would have a helper suitable, for companionship, and for procreation. He created marriage to be a picture of the relationship between Christ and the Church. Christ was willing to sacrifice His life for the Church, and God expects no less from husbands today.
This book assists husbands towards purposeful and lasting Christlikeness for the glory of God. It was written to be a companion book for The Excellent Wife by Martha Pearce. Couples who commit to the biblical principles presented in these books will find a oneness in marriage that will give God glory and bring His blessing.

Making the Most of your Devotional Life (Derek Thomas)
Is the Bible able to provide answers to the struggles and difficulties facing Christians at the beginning of the twenty-first century? Does it have anything realistic and genuinely helpful to say to those who are feeling jaded in their spiritual lives as a result of the stresses and pressures of life in a modern world? Derek Thomas gives a resounding ‘yes’ in response to these questions.
By leading his readers through fifteen meditations on the Psalms of Ascent ( Psalms 120-134), Dr Thomas shows them that the Word of God is a rich resource, full of the practical wisdom needed to meet the challenges of life in the home, at work, in the community and at worship. This book will assist Christians in restoring a vital relationship of worship and communion with God; establishing the daily discipline of reading the Scriptures; developing the habit of meditating on the Word of God and prayer; keeping a journal which helps to apply the teaching of Scripture and records one’s spiritual progress.
