Shoot Me First

THE CHURCH LIBRARY HAS FOR YOU : Recently, at a Saturday Friendship Club meeting, Grant & Janna Lock, a South Australian couple, gave a most entertaining insight into their living and working experiences in the hotspots of Pakistan and Afghanistan. ‘SHOOT ME FIRST’, the book, records their 24 years of learning languages, fitting into the cultures and managing development work, e.g. micro hydroelectric systems & eye care programs. All the while interacting  with the locals, especially needy widows struggling to survive. Their stories open a window on life in Islamic societies. As Mark Durie writes on the back cover: “The raw reality of daily life for ordinary people, up close and personal. Lock gives the most pressing global issues of our time a human face.” This book is a great addition to the Church Library; a moving story you will not forget.

Books on Parenting

THE CHURCH LIBRARY HAS FOR YOU :  Books on parenting – books that inspire, inform and encourage you in the daily task of loving and training children and grandchildren. In The Five Love Languages of children, Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell take readers on a journey to discover how to speak your child’s love language and create a relationship in which the child knows /feels loved. This enables a child to fully develop and mature. A thought provoking, as well as practical book. Parenting Children For a Life of Faith, by Rachel Turner. The basic principle behind the ideas explored in this book is that we need to model for our children what it means to be in a relationship with God, rather than just equipping them to know about Him. This book leads with wise suggestions and examples.
