The Unique Virtues of Sunday SchoolsDr Peter Masters
Like no other agency, Sunday Schools enable us to reach and draw a large part of the rising generation to the Saviour. Indeed, whether or not a congregation contains young people saved from the neighbourhood will usually depend on whether there has been an effective Sunday School.
Guidance in Church DecisionsDr Peter Masters
Young men and women are needed who will abandon the fickle, undiscerning way of accepting anything and everything, and take their stand on the authoritative Word of God, proclaiming both the message and the lifestyle of true servants of Christ. Only then shall we see the blessing of God in the conversion of many souls.
Five Keys to God’s LawDr Peter Masters

The Significance of Karl BarthDr Martyn Lloyd-Jones

God’s Rules for Holiness
Dr Peter Masters
Taken at face value the Ten Commandments are binding on all people, and will guard the way to Heaven, so that evil will never spoil its glory and purity. But the Commandments are far greater than their surface meaning, as this book shows. They challenge us as Christians on a wide range of sinful deeds and attitudes, and give immense help for staying close to the Lord.
How much we need the challenging call of Howard Guinness’ Sacrifice! Only this level of commitment will take us through life’s journey used by God, and rejoicing in his power and love. Dr Guinness himself lived the message of this book, and a multitude of readers have caught it from him. May we do so also, to God's glory.
