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.

THE CHURCH LIBRARY HAS FOR YOU : After a recent visitor, on speaking tour in Adelaide: A book and DVD for you to borrow; bringing a Christian’s timely warning message. Daniel Shayesteh – ‘The house I left behind, A journey from Islam to Christ’. This is the biography of a Muslim boy in Iran. Although the Taleshi language was his mother tongue, he could quote the Koran in Arabic at age nine! He grew up to become a politician in the Muslim driven revolution which ousted the Shah of Persia, in the hope of a better, democratic society. This is a riveting, revealing story of success, disappointment and betrayal, imprisonment, escape and ultimate freedom found in Christ, in Turkey and Australia. Already two BCUC Home Groups have benefited from watching the DVD together.
