Dig Deeper
by Nigel Beynon & Andrew Sach 

This is a toolbox. Sorry if this conjures up painful memories of failed DIY projects, hours spent waiting for the emergency services on the hard shoulder of the motorway, or rusty, forgotten implements decked with cobwebs at the back of your garden shed. But there are no spanners or trowels here. These tools are rather a means of getting to the bottom of any Bible passage and discovering its true meaning.

God’s Big Picture
by Vaughan Roberts

Sixty-six books, forty authors, written over nearly 2,000 years, in many different genres. A worldwide bestseller published in countless translations and languages. A book that has been sworn by in court, fought over, and quoted in arguments. Clearly, the Bible is no ordinary book. So how can we begin to read and understand the Bible as a whole?

In this excellent overview, Vaughan Roberts paints the big picture, showing how the different parts of the Bible fit together under the theme of the kingdom of God. He offers us tools to read it with confidence, enthusiasm and understanding. Vaughan points us to the Bible’s supreme subject, Jesus Christ, and the salvation God offers through him.

Words of Life
by Timothy Ward

Timothy Ward explains and defends what we are really saying when we trust and proclaim, as we must, that the Bible is God’s word. In particular, he describes the nature of the relationship between the living God and Scripture.

He examines why, in order to worship God faithfully, we need to pay close attention to the Bible; why, in order to be faithful disciples of Jesus – the Word made flesh – we need to base our lives on the words of the Bible; and why, in order to keep in step with the Holy Spirit, we need to trust and obey what the Bible says.

Bible Study Resources

The Word One to One

The Word One to One is a series of Bible study notes helping Christians to read John’s gospel one to one with their non-Christian colleagues. It grew out of Richard Borgonon, a member of the St Helen's midweek congregation, reading John's gospel with fellow senior executives in the London insurance market.

Richard and William Taylor, the rector of St Helen’s, then put together notes to enable others to do the same. Over the past few years hundreds of City workers have used these notes to share the good news of Jesus with their friends.
