The Heart of God book coverThe Heart of God: Poems About Jesus

by Robert Street

In The Heart of God, every poem says something about Jesus and frequently says something about us too. By bringing to life some encounters and events surrounding the first Easter, the verses explore the heart of God in discerning and challenging ways. They also show how the kind of issues faced by Jesus are still with us today.
As well as using the poems for personal daily reflection, sharing them with others in group discussion can give opportunity for further insights.
The Scripture on which each poem is based, and key Bible verses, are given to provide the background that inspired these thoughts.

A New DayA New Day

by Peter McGuigan

Born out of the author's experience of the COVID-19 pandemic, this collection explores themes of longing, hope and assurance.

The global pandemic prompted many people to reflect on what was lacking in their pre-COVID lives. The desires to enrich relationships, find spiritual renewal and to take responsibility for creating a better world are all reflected in this beautifully illustrated book. 

'One can read and reread these essays and be refreshed each time. Not only that, but the photographs complement the text and jolt us back to the wonder of our world and the assurance that a new day is a tangible possibility for us all.' - Professor Graeme Young

Head, Hands and Feet coverHead, Hands and Feet

by Robert Street

When Peter spontaneously asked Jesus to wash his head and hands as well as his feet, he could hardly have imagined what his head, hands and feet would do in the next few hours. Even less would he have realised what a contrast the head, hands and feet of Jesus would make with his own actions.

This study looks at events of the night before Jesus died and compares the actions of the disciples with the calm, controlled and caring way in which Jesus did what needed to be done.

It can also be used for group study, with those participating sharing their thoughts. The subjects have been chosen to stimulate thought about the depth of love found in Jesus Christ and how he deals with our inadequacies.

By contrasting the actions of Peter and the disciples with those of Jesus, we can see more clearly how Jesus refused to be distracted from doing his Father's will and how we can learn from his total commitment to us and our salvation.

There is also a post-Resurrection study to follow through Peter's spiritual renewal and reconciliation with Jesus.
