A Christian view of Health healing & hope (Dr Teoh Soong Kee) 9789671217573
Humans were created healthy to live forever. Because of sin, disease, ageing and death entered into the world. Yet God has instructed us on how to keep holistically healthy – physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. The Bible is not meant to be a medical manual but it contains much advice.
Christians are encouraged to seek modern medical attention for their ailments. Prayers, both alone or as a church community, have provided much comfort and even miraculous cures. Relieve from the illness may not happen in this lifetime but Christians are assured of a new resurrected life in the future where there is no disease, distress or death.
This book gives the Christian view on many health conditions such as Healing, Hygiene and Infections, Food and Alcohol, Pregnancy, Infertility, Contraception, Ageing and various medico-ethical issue such as Abortion, Euthanasia, What Does It Mean to be Human and When Do Human Beings Begin.
Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth (Richard Foster) 9789670341231
Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the “classic Disciplines,” or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found. Dividing the Disciplines into three movements of the Spirit, Foster shows how each of these areas contribute to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study, offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service, help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration, bring us nearer to one another and to God.
Drawing Near: A Life of Intimacy with God (John Bevere) 9789670341217
In Drawing Near, John Bevere invites listeners to explore a life of intimacy with God. Emphasizing the need for obedience, he urges us to practice – just as we would practice anything we hope to improve – our communication with the Holy Spirit. Understanding that prayer is a dialogue, not a monologue, Bevere encourages us to listen at the Father’s feet. Study questions in each chapter offer opportunity for reflection, and a “how to draw near to God” section offers practical steps toward developing true intimacy with him.
Revival in Ba’kelalan (Michelle Chan & Hwa Yung) 9789671932568 (Canaanland)
The story of how the message of Christ delivered the Lun Bawangs in Sarawak from becoming extinct as a people back in the 1930s was first told in Shirley Lee’s book Drunk Before Dawn (1979). God has continued to work His gracious and wonderful purposes among them through various revivals, culminating in the fourth, which was reported in the New Straits Times in December 1985. Today the Lun Bawangs are one of the strongest components of the Borneo Evangelical Mission church in Sarawak. But, for some inexplicable reason, the full story of the revivals has never been adequately told despite numerous attempts made.
In November 2023, the churches in Ba’kelalan will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1973 revival. It began with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the churches there on the evening of 10 November. That was the second night of the visit of a team from Bario, where revival had broken out some weeks earlier. This book tells the story of what happened in 1973-74 and again in 1984-86, during which times God manifested His awesome power and glory to His people. And it leaves us with the question of what God may be saying through all these wonderful things to the church in Malaysia. The Ba’kelalan story invites us to discern His purposes together.
From the Foreword by President Bina Agong, BEM/SIB Sarawak:
“I experienced the 1973-74 revival when I was six years old. During the 1984-86 revival, I was already in my late teens and had the wonderful privilege of being personally involved and an eyewitness of some of the miraculous occurrence. All of this impacted me deeply and resulted in me offering myself to God as a full-time minister. As a first-hand witness, I am able to testify that what Michelle Chan and Hwa Yung have written are valid and accurate. This book will go a long way to strengthen the faith of readers who know God and are seeking to grow deeper in their faith and understanding of God’s awesome power and glory.”
Revolution Of Character: Discovering Christ’s Pattern For Spiritual Transformation (Dallas Willard with Don Simpson) 9789670341590
Heart, mind, body, social life, and soul. God is ready to transform every aspect of your life.
Perhaps your spiritual life is not all you want it to be. Your sporadic successes, plateaus, and dry spells only lead to more frustration. Dallas Willard believes the main reason we fail in our spiritual life is that we don’t examine carefully the roles played by all five elements of our person: heart, mind, body, social life, and soul. Real change comes when we give each element thoughtful and prayerful exposure to God’s transforming work. Revolution of Character enables you to dwell reflectively on each of the five elements, understand its role, train it in new patterns, and seek God’s transforming power. This holistic approach will produce new ways of responding to life and will result in profoundly changed character.

Union With Christ (Rankin Wilbourne) 9789670341583
Winner of the 2017 Christian Book Award for New Author
Named one of the top books of 2016 by John Piper’s Desiring God ministry
To experience why the gospel is good news and answer life’s most foundational questions about identity, destiny, and purpose, we must understand what it means to be united to Christ.
If you are a Christian, the Bible says that Christ has united his life to yours, that you are now in Christ and Christ is in you. This almost unfathomable truth is the central theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Yet few Christians today experience or enjoy this reality. Union with Christ reveals the transformational power of this ancient doctrine while addressing the basic questions of the human heart:
- Who Am I?
- Why Am I Here?
- Where Am I Headed?
- How Will I Get There? Nothing is more practical for living the Christian life than union with Christ. The recovery of this reality provides the anchor and engine for your life with God—for your destiny is not only to see Christ, but to actually become like him.
