Equip Book of the Month: August

 Together Through the Storm, by Sally Sims

In our fallen world, episodes of sickness, suffering, and other trials are all too common. And the Bible’s clear call for us to show Christian love and care means we know we shouldn’t sit idly by while people around us go through these tough times.

Yet our genuine concern for others is often hindered by valid fears—the fear of not knowing Together Through the Stormwhat to do or what to say; the fear of putting our foot in it and making things worse; or the fear that involvement may take us beyond our own personal resources.

In Together Through the Storm, Sally Sims helps us overcome these fears by setting out clear biblical foundations and very practical guidance for Christian care that is based in the word of God and in Christian hope.

Sally brings a tremendously useful mix of life experiences to this important book, including training and practice as a nurse, study in pastoral care and chaplaincy, extensive reading and research, years of coordinating and providing pastoral care in her church, and, of course, personally persevering through her own times of trial.

Reading Together Through the Storm will help any Christian to develop in their ability to care for others, but it also provides a useful foundation for training a ‘care team’ in your church.

“It is a book for every congregation member, as it so practically charts a pathway of how we should all care for each other in church life.
At Moore College we seek to teach our students the elements of pastoral care. This book will certainly become part of our set reading, as it is one of the best books on the topic as well as being such a joy to read.”
Archie Poulos
Head, Ministry Department, Moore College, Sydney

Darrell Bock visits SA…Kendall Specials & Janet Greener’s Midlife Crisis

RT Kendall

Dr RT Kendall delivered outstanding Bible teaching during his visit to SA last month. Now retired after decades of ministry from the pulpit and through his writings, Dr Kendall’s impact on the global church is immeasurable. Earnest Paddon wrote this of his teaching (In Pursuit of His Glory):      

“He has an amazing knowledge of the Scriptures and a willingness to deal with any verse in the passage preached, however difficult it might be. I can never remember hearing a sermon which did not bless me. He truly practiced what he has preached.”

CBD was present during his visit with his popular books in high demand. Now we are offering a selection of these at great discounts.

Janet Greener’s Midlife Crisis

Janet farewell pic

For nigh on ten years, Janet Greener has been the marketing drive of CBD. She built solid relationships with churches, launched stores nationwide, and got to know the Christian book industry inside out.

“I didn’t have a clue about books when I first joined,” she says. “I thought the perfect Christian book was anything at CUM.”

We’re having our final catch-up before she walks out. I ask what she’ll miss most.

“Oh, shucks… bringing out some great speakers to South Africa, people like John Blanchard, Brian Edwards, Joel Beeke, Christopher Ash, Paul Tripp… getting involved with some dynamic pastors at grass roots level… there’s so much!”

And why is she leaving?

“I told my husband I think I’m having a mid-life crisis. He looked at me and said, ‘You’re definitely having one’. Ag, I feel after ten years that I’ve given it my best shot. Now it’s your turn!”

I’ve just spent two weeks flying around the country with her, meeting and greeting our clients and staff. Her energy and experience has awed me. She can hold a face-to-face conversation, whatsapp and deal with cancelled flight emergencies all at the same time. She’s a tour de force. We hug and she’s off to whatever’s next.

“Give me a call anytime you need advice,” she says as she leaves.

For sure, I think to myself. I’ll be doing plenty of that.

Grant Griffiths has stepped into Janet Greener's shoes. Pop in anytime for a coffee and chat with him at our head office in Claremont, or drop him a mail at with regard to anything marketing or sales.

Introducing the Africa Study Bible


The Need for a New Perspective

Hundreds of millions of Africans know and love Christ. However, most discipleship and biblical resources come from a Western perspective—a culture far removed from the reality of life in Africa. In order to help meet this urgent need, the Africa Study Bible was created.

Alongside the clear and modern English of the beloved New Living Translation, the Africa Study Bible has over 2,400 notes and features that connects Scripture to different cultures throughout Africa. Over 300 writers and editors, from 50 countries, from five major language groups, have all worked on this project to create the most ethnically diverse Bible resource to date.

This life-transforming study Bible will be available to the millions of Christians who deeply desire to fully understand and apply God’s Word through the lens of African culture and heritage.

Rhinestone Jesus, by Kristen Welch

In high school, Kristen Welch wore a big, sparkly rhinestone “Jesus” pin to school every dayRhinestone Jesus and carried her Bible wherever she went.

Yes, she was that girl…

But she didn’t realize her faith, though sincere, was shallow; much like her artificial accessories, it would one day tarnish, no longer a true fit for who she was. As real life catapulted Kristen into places and situations she’d never imagined, there came a day when she stood – shocked in the slums of Africa – and realized in one desperate moment that Jesus wasn’t enough for her.

At least . . . she wasn’t living like He was. On the brink of a risk bigger than any she’d ever taken, Kristen knew she didn’t stand a chance—unless she was willing to put aside the rhinestones and get branded by the real thing.

Rhinestone Jesus is the story of one woman’s journey from comfortably living a safe, “good-girl” faith that didn’t cost much, to realizing that God was daring her to say yes to a bolder, more authentic, more dangerous way. This story of spiritual adventure throws the doors wide open for any woman who’s ever thought of herself as “just a mom.”

Kristen will inspire and empower you to say yes to God right where you are—and stand amazed at how your life will shine.

Luther and His KatieFew of us have heard of Catherine von Bora. And yet, as the beloved wife of Martin Luther, she can very justifiably be seen as one of the most influential figures in the Reformation. She made her home a haven of rest for the storm tossed man that was her husband. Luther once said, ‘Next to God’s Word, the world has no more precious treasure than holy matrimony. God’s best gift is a pious, cheerful, God-fearing wife, with whom you may live peacefully, to whom you may entrust your goods, your body, and your life.’

Glory of Heaven, TheIf you’re going to call it “home” for eternity, don’t you want to know what it’s like? Quite simply, we need to know more about what lies ahead for the sake of what lies in front of us today.  Pastor John MacArthur takes us through the pages of Scripture, exploring the wonders of heaven and the truth about angels and eternal life while addressing current debates and issues.

Sermons of George Whitefield, The (2vol)George Whitefield was an astounding preacher. Though slender of build, he stormed into the pulpit as if he were a giant. It was said that “his voice startled England like a trumpet blast.”  His messages were gospel-focused, simple and clear, bold, descriptive, earnest, and filled with pathos and emotion. Some calculate that he preached more than 18,000 sermons. Two volume set.

Son of God and the New Creation, The1The theme of divine sonship stretches across the pages of the Bible: from Adam in the garden of Eden, through the nation of Israel and King David, and ultimately to Jesus Christ in the New Jerusalem – the Son of God par excellence.  In this volume, renowned biblical scholar Graeme Goldsworthy shows what Christ’s fulfillment of the divine sonship motif means for all who are sons and daughters of God.

1 & 2 Peter & Jude (Preaching the Word)In this exposition of 1 & 2 Peter and Jude, pastor David R. Helm explores these letters in depth, reminding us that present suffering precedes future glories for all who are in Christ. Pointing us to the only steadfast foundation for our faith, this meditative volume reminds us to look to God’s grace for the strength we need to contend for the faith and finish well in light of Christ’s return.

Genesis Factor, TheHere is a book for all who have a healthy uncertainty about life’s big questions – Where did I come from? Is there a God? Does this God care about me?  The authors believe that the answers are found where Christianity began – with the introduction of God and His work in the book of Genesis.  Using the Socratic method, they challenge readers to wrestle with Scripture itself rather than with systematic questions. This candid conversation with Genesis is an ideal apologetic for today’s postmodern culture.

Why care about the Reformation today?

It has been five hundred years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther’s theses called for the reform of the church and served as the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation. Its impact is still felt today.  Today we learn about some of the Reformation Heroes.
Reformation-Heroes 2The Reformation did not happen instantaneously; it was something God patiently arranged over a number of years.

As you read this book, you will learn how the Lord used some people to plant the seeds of church reform long before October 31, 1517, when Martin Luther published his ninety-five theses. Luther’s story is well-known; we trust you will find it interesting and instructive to read about him and about forty others (John Knox, Peter Martyr Vermigli, Zacharias Ursinus, Willem Teellinck, etc.) who contributed to the Reformation – some well known and others not so – most of whom are Reformation heroes.

To provide a more full picture of the many sided Reformation, chapters are also included on the Anabaptist and Counter Reformation movements. The illustrated overview for older Children and Teens concludes with a brief summary of the influence of the Reformation in different areas of life.

These Truths Alone (Good Book Guide)500 years ago the Reformation transformed Europe by the rediscovery of five key Bible truths. Summarized as the Five Solas, they set the church on a renewed path of faithfulness.

Many Christians today are once more ignorant of the Five Solas. This Good Book Guide helps us rediscover these essential Reformation teachings and connect them to our faith today.

Can we talk about islam slider

Can we talk about Islam? by                           Review by Annabel Nixey – Equip Bookclub

Here are three reasons to read this book:

It’s short
Can We Talk about Islam?This book is short. Super short. Don’t get me wrong – it is good to read long books. But sometimes life means a short book is in order. And at 54 pages this one still packs a punch. If we gave books a value-per-page score, ‘Can we talk about Islam?’ would be 9.5/10.

It’s about Islam (and how to talk about it)
I am no expert on Islam. To be honest (to my shame) this is the first book I’ve read specifically on how to talk about Islam.  And it was so clear and so helpful! In his third chapter Tony Payne summarizes the key teachings of Islam, comparing them to Christianity. For example, in Christianity, the problem is our rebellion against God (sin) and hence the solution is atonement to restore a personal relationship with God. Yet in Islam the problem is ignorance or weakness and so the solution is guidance through the prophets (particularly Muhammad) in order to enable submission to Allah.  There’s also a really helpful summary of the diverse strands of Islam. It left me feeling much better equipped to avoid caricatures which depict extremist groups like ISIS as either representative of all of Islam or none of it.

It’s not just about Islam
The hidden gem of this book is chapter two – ‘Why don’t secular humanists want to talk?’ Don’t know what a secular humanist is? As Payne points out, chances are they are your neighbour, boss, dentist and cousin. Secular humanism is the air we breathe. This chapter is an incredibly helpful discussion of what secular humanism is and why secular humanists don’t want to talk about religion – because to them ‘whatever religious belief you have is a matter of personally chosen faith and values and opinion’ (p12). Payne explores and explains why they think this using a really clear illustration (involving a disappearing staircase!) which he admits to nicking from Francis Schaeffer. Well hats off to Mr Schaeffer because it’s a really helpful illustration! I read this chapter thinking – ‘that is what my friends think…ahhhh….that makes sense of why they think that’. It also was also helpful to see ways that I also can slip into a secular humanist mindset.
