A MUST for any serious student of The Scriptures
Reviewed by Quintin on 10 May 2019  (Format reviewed: Hardcover)
Brother Connor does a tremendous service to The Church in his treatise "The Church in the New Testament". Its more on the level of a TEXTBOOK than anything else. The thing about Brother Connor's works (all of his books) that I love is that his books are like full on bible studies that you are having with him as you read (SCRIPTURE for EVERY point)! In reality, when you are reading ANY book you are in a sense, fellowshiping with the author. He addresses just about every topic related to The Church that you can think of and does it without any allegiance to a denomination, a pet doctrine or the latest "churchianity" fad. He allows the Scriptures to be our ONLY guide even if it cuts against some of the teachings that we have grown up hearing "in church" (how many know that WE ARE The Church? We don't "go to church") One of the examples I was so blessed to read which confirmed that which I had already seen in the Word, was that of FUNCTIONS being used as TITLES in church (we have taken FUNCTIONS and turned them into TITLES and the taken those TITLES and turned them into IDOLS!)! "Hello elder Baker. How are you bishop Potter. Good word today pastor Wilson" You don't see in The N.T. where they greeted each other in that manner. It was "brother" or "sister" or just their NAME (just using their NAME, now THAT'S revolutionary! :P )Brother Connor breaks all of that down in his chapter titled "Challenge To The Traditional System" Chapter 25. He deals with a number of our "sacred cows" in churchianity in that chapter. Be prepared to be challenged but more importantly I hope you are CHANGED by the Word of God on this book's pages AND by the POWER of The Holy Spirit who inspired what is on the pages. God bless you all! Thank you brother Connor for your poured out life for Jesus glory and the advancement of His KINGdom! I am sure you are enjoying your reward in the presence of The KING!

Hope for the future despite adversity
Reviewed by Lisa on 30 March 2019  (Format reviewed: Paperback)
“The making of us” is a beautifully written book in which the author draws ‘us’ in, inviting us to ponder upon our own journeys, as the author travels his own. Life’s purpose is everyone’s question at some point in time, but even more poignant for those of us who have faced something which challenges the very core of who we believe we are and what we are on this planet for. This book is a personal account of the authors musings on such topics as he treks through the North Coast of England with his friend. The safety and security this friendship affords the author allows him to explore in conversation some deep and thoughtful personal questions. It is sensitively and descriptively written. Due to the pilgrimage taken in the story, travel and history lovers in particular will enjoy the detail of this book. I was anticipating reading ‘The Making of Us’, after being seriously impacted by Sheridan Voysey’s previous book ‘The Resurrection Year’. When I read ‘The Resurrection Year’, I felt as though the author had read my personal journal as background preparation, all the while acknowledging that ultimately, life doesn’t go as planned for many of us. Both books are highly recommended for this reason- I believe they appeal to anyone who is willing to slow down and reflect upon the purpose of their lives, particularly in the context of failed dreams. The real beauty of this book is the sense that life is in fact a journey, and despite the sometimes undulating and perilous paths we walk or stumble along, there is a purpose and hope for us. I received a copy of ‘The making of us’ in exchange for a fair and honest review.

A refreshing point of view on the modern Church
Reviewed by Bill Stolk on 28 January 2019  (Format reviewed: Paperback)
Mark Sayers is an avid observer of the modern culture and its roots. In this book, he examines recent trends in the Church, how they arose and what they were attempting to address. He looks at movements such as the Church Growth movement of the 80s and 90s, the Emerging Church of the 90s and 2000s, what they had to offer and why they ultimately failed. He looks at the current push for "relevance" and what this really means, and dares to ask the question - do we need to be relevant, or is God calling us to something else? He compares the attitude of the modern church with its postmodern focus on self to Gnosticism, an empty form of spirituality that refuses to submit to any form of authority. He then goes on propose where we should go from here, and comes to a conclusions similar to Rod Dreher in The Benedict Option, suggesting that it may be time for Christians to withdraw from the world, to re-establish our communities and ideals for a time until the world is ready to re-engage with us. Highly recommended reading.

Made an Impact
Reviewed by Dianne on 21 December 2018  (Format reviewed: Boxed Cards & Packs)
The 5 Panel Tree To Cross card made a significant impact on many I sent the card to. I have had positive correspondence back saying how when family members and friends saw and read the card they were challenged afresh by the tree transformation and its stark message......straight to the heart of what Christmas is really all about.
