What's So Amazing About Grace - Philip Yancy
We speak of grace often. But do we understand it? More importantly do we believe it … and do our lives proclaim it as powerfully as our words? In this bestselling book Philip Yancy gives us a probing look at grace: what it looks like … what it doesn't look like … and why only Christians can and must reveal the grace the world is searching for. Zondervan £9.99.

Expository Preaching - Haddon W. Robinson
This book is a tremendous resource for those wishing to preach expository Bible sermons. It provides a comprehensive guide to sermon preparation and delivery. Robinson presents a ten-stage process of sermon development, showing how to get from the text to the sermon, decide its purpose, shape an outline, and preach it so people will listen. It is backed up with helpful exercises and apposite illustrations. The book is exciting to read, sparking with wit and wisdom, and full of practical help. IVP £12.99

Bridge-Building - Alister McGrath

In this scholarly book, Alister McGrath sets out the arguments, but goes further and explains how all Christians concerned with preaching and evangelism can use these arguments to demonstrate and defend the truths of the Christian faith.
