Random sermon quote: "We need to beware of hiding selfish motives under the cloak of religious zeal and calling it righteous indignation. Personal vengeance and private gain, rather than the glory of the Lord, has motivated more than one crusader in the church. It's amazing to me how many people are just waiting to score a point against another brother or sister in Christ" - Samson, The Vengeful Victor

Join our mailing listI've said, and maybe it's too great a generalisation, that most are not reading the Bible - and most Christians, I believe, are not reading it, certainly in large chunks. If we're honest, we might take a little portion that some daily devotional reading gives us, if we are even doing that - I fear that that's the minority, that even have times with God - but if we are doing that, we may have sort of a 'Daily Light', or 'Our Daily Bread' (and I'm not despising those things), but they are not substitutes for getting to grips with what the Bible says. Now you might say: 'Well, what are you saying, that we have to read the Bible through in a year?', that's a very worthy occupation, but I'm not saying that you should do that. You should read the Bible at the pace that you can digest it. So, however long it takes you, you spend time reading the Bible. But I fear that when we are not reading the Bible as we ought to read it, as we would read any other book, we are not getting the message of God - it's as simple as that. As generations pass, of professing believers who are not reading the Bible in such a fashion, we are losing things... [Listen or read more...]

Awake My Heart
by J. Sidlow Baxter
Awake My Heart
Need a daily devotional for the New Year, or as a gift to a friend? One of the world's classic devotional books, 'Awake My Heart' continues to challenge and encourage readers with its biblical insight and personal warmth. With more than one million copies in print, 'Awake My Heart' is more than just another book of brief daily devotions. As Dr. Baxter writes in the foreword, each of the entries is 'one complete study-in-brief, or else one of a pair, trio, or quartette of such studies, and not merely a few devotional thoughts dovetailed together as in many other useful books of briefer daily readings'.

  • 'It is not often that one finds a book of daily devotional studies of the calibre of Awake My Heart' - Pulpit Magazine
  • 'One of the most spiritually exhilarating and refreshing experiences that any preacher or Bible student could enjoy is to read the published volumes of J. Sidlow Baxter. His expositions provide a fountain of preaching and teaching material that can be easily used in mediating the truth of God to others' - Dr. W.A. Criswell
  • 'Each page is a Bible study in itself' - Evangelical Beacon

J. Sidlow Baxter attended Spurgeon's Theological College in London and pastored churches in England and Scotland. Renowned for his biblical understanding and ability to explain the Scriptures, his books have been read and recommended by a wide audience of lay persons, pastors, speakers, and Christian leaders.

Available to order from Amazon in Paperback (US or UK) - 382 pages.
