Studies in the Lord’s Supper
Moynihan, Shawn | Published in 2023 | Paperback, Kindle
Two thousand years ago, on a spring evening in an upper room in Jerusalem, thirteen people met together. This book attempts to recapture Jesus’ intention for his Supper. Jesus established the rite to connect us to our Father, to connect us to him, and to connect us to each other. Like the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, we want to know Jesus in the Breaking of Bread (Luke 24:30-31).
The Women of Matthew 1
Booker, George | Published in 2023 | Paperback, Kindle
Matthew 1 traces Jesus’ lineage forward from Abraham through to David. It emphasizes the great Jewish covenants and the progression of God’s purpose, finally fulfilled in Jesus, who is the seed of Abraham and the king of Israel. Here in Matthew 1 is a lengthy list of names, a list that can be very dull to read. But if we make the genealogy personal, it comes alive. Read the genealogy as though it were your own family history. It is! “For if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed (Gal 3:26-29), and heirs according to the promises” (Gal 3:16, 27-29).

Doctrines to be Rejected – A study in the second section of the Birmingham Amended Statement of Faith
Hemingray, Peter and Bilello, Peter | Published in 2023 | Paperback (283 Pages), Kindle
The significance and importance of our Statement of Faith is undoubted. Our community is largely bound together by the Biblical Principles that are to be found in the Bible, of which the BASF is regarded as a true account. It is not necessarily the only true account: many ecclesias have adopted their own “Statement of Faith”, but all acknowledge the validity of the BASF. In areas of dispute, we tend to strongly emphasize a few phrases or sections. These were added to clarify the position of the community in times of dispute.
Legalism vs. Faith, Second Edition
Levin, David | Revised in 2023 | Paperback (246 Pages), Kindle, Audiobook
The basic premise of Legalism vs. Faith is: legalism is the human tendency to reduce religion to a set of rules to follow and behaviors to perform. Legalism is about rules, rituals and rewards, not about reliance, trust and gratitude, the values that describe a healthy relationship with God.

Benjamin and Grace
Ojike, Peter | Published in 2022 | Paperback, Kindle
A powerful work that demonstrates the gracious hand of God in the life of Benjamin. Beginning by examining the relationship between Benjamin and his older brother, Judah and then developing the story of the failure of the house of Saul, and the mercy to be shown to David’s son. We then go to the First Century, where Benjamin’s Saul of Tarsus ravens as a wolf, but is transformed by the gospel of grace. Finally the book demonstrates how this will all culminate in the Kingdom of God, when Christ will sit on the throne of grace in Zion. Benjamin and his descendants teach us about grace in ways we may not learn from any other character in the Bible, apart from Christ.
Within the Camps
Hemingray, Peter | Published in 2021 | Paperback (253 pages), Kindle
How many know about Ernest Wells, who died in Leavenworth Prison for his faith. Or of those who suffered torture, imprisonment, and shipment overseas so that succeeding generations might be able to avoid such treatment. Christadelphians in North America suffered greatly in WW1 to establish the principle that they could not, in good conscience, serve in the Armed Forces in any capacity, so they were, at best, forced into Army camps after conscription, or sentenced to prison. In WW2, they were sent to camps to perform manual labor under sometimes harsh conditions in remote locations – and in the case of the USA, forced to pay for the privilege. It is to remind us of their sacrifice for their faith that this book was written, and it is to be hoped that it will help ensure their sacrifice in the camps was not in vain.
