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.

This Is Your Time

Last evening (26/6/18) I had dinner with two outstanding young men. They take their call to follow Christ seriously. They take the stewardship of their own lives seriously. They were seeking to make sense of the unfolding circumstances of their lives, but in the...

Leader, Leader?

When I first did the Wagner-Modified Houts Spiritual Gifts Questionnaire, a questionnaire that helped one discover one's spiritual gifts, I was surprised to discover that my primary gift was teaching. I thought it would be leadership. But leadership came in second or...

Pronounced “Beekner”

In our recent trip to Vancouver, I made a number of new friends. One was a young woman from Sitiawan, Perak. She told me she had been reading my weekly column for more than 15 years and had been helped by them. I was pleasantly surprised. I have been writing a weekly...
