Why Spiritual Friendship?

Spiritual friendship is friendship that is rooted in Christ for the purpose of helping followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness. Our model for spiritual friendship takes its cue from Jesus, who called together a community (Matthew 4:18–22) at the start of His public ministry.

The Christian life can be described as following Jesus in the company of friends. But how many of us have these vital and life-giving relationships in place.

Why Publishing?

It is all too easy to live a life that divides the sacred from the secular. But we believe that all of life is lived under God; that there is no such divide.

So we publish books to help followers of Jesus Christ embrace spiritual friendship, and live out their faith in the world. Our books help them connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life — truth for life — issues like busyness, young adulthood, marriage, parenting, growing old, work as worship to God, politics, corruption, to name a few.

Blessed are the Peacemakers

As a permanent resident in Singapore, there is much I appreciate about the city-state I now call my home. This ranges from the relative absence of cigarette smoke to a government that takes a strong stance against corruption. I also appreciate that the country is...

We Gave Them Veto Vote

I just came back from Penang late last night. Spent a few very special days there. First, we celebrated my mum's 90th birthday. That would have been special enough. But we also had a short family holiday. There are six in our immediate family: Bernice, myself, and...
