Miss Rush Rush$30.95Add to cart
Ruth leaves her comfortable, settled home in Durban, to live among a tribe of nomads in Uganda. “I waved goodbye to my family at Durban airport, and flew to Nairobi. I half-hoped for a miracle mid-air to change me into the super-heroine missionaries are supposed to be. Nothing happened. I got off the plane, the same Ruth Stranex, who had been assessed by my Oxford college as “not outstanding.” Yet I was facing an outstandingly tough job, only possible with God’s help.”
Ruth has to adapt to the culture of the Pokot people: to their diet of cows’ blood and milk; their cattle-raiding wars; their frenzied search for water-holes. She delivers their babies, treats their malaria and sews up their spear wounds. She cleans up the infected sores left by witchdoctors trying to let out evil spirits. She challenges their goat sacrifices intended to appease an angry god. She tells them about the one sacrifice offered for them by the Lamb of God who is Love.
Then, without any warning, she is arrested, driven for 2 days, between policewomen with kalashnikovs and locked in a foul cell …..
You’ll love her frankness and her humour. You’ll wish you had friends like her African Christian friends. You may wish you had a faith like hers.
Deep Sea Canoe (Revised)$12.99Add to cart
This updated version of Tippett’s 1977 The Deep Sea Canoe describes a significant but often overlooked aspect of the expansion of Christianity in the South Pacific, that of South Sea Island believers who carried the gospel from one island to another in their deep sea canoes.

Pilgrimage : My Journey To A Deeper Faith In The Land Where Jesus Walked (Reprin$16.00Add to cart
An Intimate Look at a Bestselling Author’s Journey to Deeper Faith
“The opportunity to tour Israel came at a good time. For months, my life has been a mindless plodding through necessary routine, as monotonous as an all-night shift on an assembly line. Life gets that way sometimes, when nothing specific is wrong but the world around us seems drained of color. Even my weekly worship experiences and daily quiet times with God have felt dry and stale. I’m ashamed to confess the malaise I’ve felt. I have been given so much. Shouldn’t a Christian’s life be an abundant one, as exciting as Christmas morning, as joyful as Easter Sunday?”
With gripping honesty, Lynn Austin shares with readers a private and intimate look at her own struggles with spiritual dryness in a season of loss and unwanted change. As she journeys through Israel, Austin turns to Scripture at each site she visits. Then with a fiction writer’s eye for detail, she seamlessly weaves events and insights from the Word as she finds hope, renewed faith, and a sense of direction for the future.

From The Kitchens Of Seville Revised$25.95Add to cart
This cookbook was compiled (and newly revised) in the southern region of Spain called Andalucia. The capital of Andalucia is Seville, a classic European city with old time charm and incredibly satisfying food. Inside these pages you will find tried and true recipes that are, in many cases, centuries old. After describing to Spanish friends and neighbors the type of book we wanted to create, one with everyday authentic recipes, and definitely NOT a coffee table cookbook, our Sevillano friends eagerly jumped to the task of telling us what kinds of food we should highlight. So this cookbook comprises what THEY think ought to be in it. Men and women alike opened up drawers full of aging recipes (written in the script of grandmothers and great-aunts), found cookbooks cracking in the bindings, or just sat and recited from memory the ingredients for this saute or that salad. Here you have the tasty result.

Twinomujuni : The Uganda Chronicles$17.49Add to cart
It is early daylight in a small mountain town in southwestern Uganda, close to the Rwandan border. The children are dressed in rags they got from a trash dump. They were up early to be at the slaughtering place in town where they will soak up the blood of freshly slaughtered cattle with whatever they can find. This blood will be what they eat today, along with rotting fruits and vegetables obtained from the town garbage. At night, they will sleep in ditches and fields. Their parents died of AIDS, or malaria. Their living relatives are already caring for large households on less than $1.00 per day income. There is no place for them to go. There is no welfare, food stamps or Child Protective Services. A couple from California travel there as representatives of their church as part of a cultural exchange program. They stay with a Pastor and his family. This Pastor’s dream is to build an orphanage for at least some of these hopeless children. The couple stays for a month, meet people, see the children, and go home with no expectations of ever returning. The Pastor fasted and prayed that they would tell the children’s stories, and that they would come back….
