Partnership

Partnership
"This book on Philippians exudes the warmth of the letter itself. It engages with our lives and is insightfully applied. William is one of the finest leaders I know. His background as a captain in the Royal Greenjackets prepared him well for the leadership in the church. He is a man who recognises the eternal significance of pastoral leadership; it is his compassionate pastoral care, so evident at St Helen's, which reflects itself in his preaching and in this book."

The Gospel of God

The Gospel of God
"It was no accident that the Reformers, Luther and Calvin, each wrote the first two of their many Bible commentaries on Romans and the Psalms. The Church today evidences its great need of massive doses of the truths of Romans. R C Sproul and Christian Focus have done us a great favour in making the content of Romans more available to a wider audience. You will find this book a great tonic for your soul."
