Do you say 'yes' to requests when really you mean to say 'no'? Do you feel permanently trapped by your 24/7 lifestyle? While offering practical help to busy Christians, Tim Chester also opts for root-and-branch treatment: you need to deal radically with the things that are driving you. If you're busy because of the following; 'I need to prove myself'; 'Otherwise things get out of control'; 'I like the pressure/money'; think again! At the root of our 'slavery' are serious misunderstandings, often reinforced by our culture. If we want to be free, then we need to counteract them with God's word. It's important to manage our time, but it's more important to manage our hearts. God has promised his rest to all who are weary and burdened (Matthew 11:28). It's up to us to accept it.

Baptists worldwide recently celebrated 400 years of history and witness. This volume is a collection of papers presented at the Beyond 400 conference held in Perth, Western Australia, as part of these celebrations. Contributors have written from a broad range of perspectives reflecting biblically and theologically on the thinking and practice of Baptists in the past and present. These reflections form a basis for exploring how Baptists can function more effectively in our contemporary world situation and imagine themselves in the future. Chapters range from providing historical perspectives to biblical and theological reflections on issues that have been critical to Baptist belief and ministry. They examine the core values that, historically, have distinguished Baptists within the broader context of the church and explore how these values might both underpin and play out in Baptist churches today. Contributions reflect a firm belief among both the presenters and attendees at the Beyond 400 conference that Baptists not only have a future but also offer a necessary voice to our world. This voice is firmly based on the issues that first precipitated the Baptist movement some 400 years ago, and the continuing relevance of these issues as they are reimagined for our contemporary situation.

Day one in the new job. You're keen, you're nervous and your new shoes are pinching. Will you get there on time? Will you fit in? And will you be competent - or clueless? Many start their first job with three great hopes: a brand new status, a salary and loads of job satisfaction. Some even plan to shine for Jesus in their workplace. But all too often the pressures of work life cause even the keenest Christians to wilt. Jago Wynne believes with a passion that people can flourish in their work and keep their faith intact, if properly prepared. With humour, insight and real-life stories he equips readers both to negotiate the first few months and to continue wholeheartedly with Jesus at work - for an entire working life.

Globalization is both an economic and cultural phenomenon. While it brings many benefits - creating wealth and opening up societies -- it is also creating gross inequalities. The unrestricted movement of capital can leave whole communities devastated as production moves elsewhere at short notice in search of lower costs. DEGREESJustice, Mercy and Humility explores the challenge of integral mission among the poor today. It locates the Christian response within a world of alternatives -- alternatives at the macro-level of policies and advocacy, and the micro-level of lifestyle, and affirms the need to integrate ourselves within a 'total missional response to the poor'. DEGREESCombining case studies from around the world with Jesus' own teaching and ministry, the book considers what it means for the church to be a countercultural ministry, and in doing so raises new questions about what it means to be church. What is the 'church' and what is 'church culture'? How can we help rather than hinder 'the church
