Little Devotionals Boxed Set

by Lia London

This series is a unique combination of inspirational memoirs, practical spiritual self-help, and Christian devotionals, all told in a candid, conversational style that is easy to understand for young and old alike. The brief anecdotes shared are designed to bring laughter and/or inspire deeper examination of what it means to have a relationship with God. Through the stories, those who are new to Christianity can learn practical ways to grow in discipleship, and those who may need an extra boost will find kindling to reignite faith. Most of the chapters end with Bible verses, and Book 3 includes questions at the end of each segment to prompt spiritual self-evaluation.

Contains three short books:

Parables & Ponderings: when God speaks to us through everyday items and incidents
Miracles & Musings: recognizing God’s love in blessings big and small
Knocking & Knowing: when faith is hard to find

Amazon reviewers had this to say:

“A beautiful book of reflections on God and life.”

“Extremely motivational. Makes you realize not to take small thing for granted and God is in control and wants the very best for us if we choose to listen to Him.”

“Aha moments taken seriously. I used her book to get my Sunday school class to think about God’s messages to us, sent multiple times daily, but maybe overlooked.”



Theresa May: Taking Charge

by Nigel Cawthorne

On 13 July 2016, almost three weeks after the historic Brexit result, Theresa May became the second woman to hold the position of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

But her path to power was not always a smooth one. Her story has been filled with personal and political challenges.

Her life has also been connected with various institutions: the Church, Oxford University and the Conservative Party. But Theresa May has always endeavoured to be her own woman – a tireless and principled campaigner.

Nigel Cawthorne’s Taking Charge recounts Theresa May’s rise to power – and also addresses a number of interesting issues:

How similar – and different – is Theresa May to Margaret Thatcher?

What was her relationship like with David Cameron and his â??old boys’ club’?

Is she a populist or pragmatist?

Praise for Nigel Cawthorne

‘May represents a different kind of politician: a calm headmistress in a chamber full of over-excitable public schoolboys.’ – The Guardian

Nigel Cawthorne is the author of over 160 books including the bestselling Alan Johnson: Left Standing, Jeremy Clarkson: Motormouth, Harry: A Prince Among Men and A Little Bit of Stephen Fry. He lives in Bloomsbury, London’s literary area.
