2. The Dating Dilemma: A Romance Revolution by Rachel Gardner
Rachel Gardner and André Adefope look at God’s guidelines for romance. They ask the difficult questions, but they also ask how God helps us to change – how you can become a godly boyfriend: confident in who you are, supportive, worthy of respect; or a godly girlfriend: sure of yourself, able to nurture selflessness and generosity in relationships.
3. Everyday Supernatural: Living a Spirit-Led Life Without Being Wierd by Andy Croft and Mike Pilavachi
Most Christians believe in God’s power, yet few see evidence of the supernatural in their lives. Mike Pilavachi and Andy Croft believe that God wants each of his followers to know the work of the Holy Spirit.
Everyday Supernatural is an engaging, biblically based invitation to make supernatural power a part of everyday life.
Mike Pilavachi is the pastor of Soul Survivor Watford in London and the founder of Soul Survivor, an international movement that equips young people to make a difference in their generation.
4. Cross The Line: Christian Footballers Talk God, Faith and the Beautiful Game by Ollie Baines
Twenty high-profile footballers share their faith and reveal how it influences their lives, both on and off the pitch.
5. Paradoxology by Krish Kandiah
The Christian faith is full of apparent paradoxes:- a compassionate God who sanctions genocide- an all-powerful God who allows horrific suffering- a God who owns everything yet demands so much from his followers- a God who is distant and yet present at the same time. Many of us have big questions that the Christian faith seems to leave unanswered.
Paradoxology makes a bold new claim: that the paradoxes that seem like they ought to undermine belief are actually the heart of our vibrant faith, and that it is only by continually wrestling with them – rather than trying to pin them down or push them away – that we can really move forward, individually and together.
Q and A with Jo Swinney, author of ‘Home: the quest to belong’ (Hodder & Stoughton, 2017)

Why did you write ‘Home’?
I have spent a lot of my life thinking about the idea of home, mostly because I’ve done a lot of moving, said a lot of goodbyes and had times of wondering if I would ever properly belong. The book comes out of my growing sense of hope that all of us can find home: it might just be that we have to expand our understanding of what that means. The book roughly follows my life story as I’ve added pieces to the puzzle along the way. Home for me is now a house, my family, my church, my neighbourhood, my culture, my story and more.
Who is it for?
It is for anyone who isn’t quite sure where home is – people who have just moved house, or have gone through a marriage break-up, or who are living abroad, or who are heading off to university, or are starting a new job – so many situations can unsettle us and make us feel rootless.
What do you hope people will get from reading it?
I hope people will realise they have a home if they will choose to embrace the life they have. I hope it will be the catalyst for a lot of story-telling. And I hope it will remind people that God has chosen to make his home with us, that he has a forever home waiting, and that we are in the meantime to offer home to each other.
For many of us in the Christian book trade we have noticed that the church is losing the habit of spiritual reading, leaders are struggling to recommend books to their congregations, and Christians simply aren’t being encouraged to read.
To help play a part in changing this, our friend Krish Kandiah has launched a new initiative called “Books for Life”. Each month they will release a feature-length video interview with a significant Christian leader. Krish will be asking them to name three Christian books that have changed their lives and why. Then Krish will take a look at the latest crop of books to hit the shelves and make three recommendations that are well worth a read.
