So I guess I have to write something about what is quite possibly one of the most monumentally enormous political events that many of us have lived through. When I arrived home on Wednesday afternoon I insisted that my older children stopped what they were doing and watched a bit of the TV coverage with […]
More information on Operation 315 here. The crowd funding page for Brisbane is here and for the Gold Coast here.
I’m not going to stop saying [hard things], for the love of people and the love of God. This looks like a great book from Rico. (Australian link). Rico Tice is minister for evangelism at All Souls Langham Place and author and founder of Christianity Explored. He was my first trainer in ministry, married me to […]
The JESUS film is the world’s most watched. Screening the children’s adaptation (despite the pretty corny accents) is one of the most effective things I get to do when teaching Special Religious Education (“Scripture”) to primary school children. The only drawback is that the 1970s production is looking a bit dated. But no longer! Earlier […]
I’m always looking for useful and effective ways to share Jesus with others so it was a real delight for me yesterday to be introduced to yesHEis. Here’s how it works. There’s a website and, more importantly, android and iOS apps. It’s already installed on my phone and I’m looking forward to the first opportunity […]

He’s the author of five books, including Marks of the Messenger and Speaking of Jesus. This week, at the Together For The Gospel (T4G) Conference in Kentucky, Mack will launch his […]
Not seen it yet. Only seen this: Honestly, given our child-inhibited rate of movie-going I doubt I’ll see it before it comes out on DVD. However, I feel already able to make one observation. Amongst Christians who have viewed the film the appear to be 2 broad categories of response. The first is mostly negative. […]
What a great little argument – really liked it. Well, until the very last line from the girl in the chair. The correct answer, of course, is, John 1:18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
This is awesome. In the last week I've been getting emails about a new project here in Sydney that formed in response to the “Jesus is a Muslim Prophet” billboards that were put up a couple of weeks ago. The billboard has gone up on the M4 motorway leading west out of Sydney towards those […]
