Here’s a list of the Good Book Guides that I’ve written (click here for the Australian GBC website). I did start this post with a notion that I might say which GBG is my favourite, but it’s not proved that simple. I love the ones of Ezekiel and Zechariah because I hope they take neglected parts of the Bible and make them live for people today. I think the two guides to Mark’s Gospel are perhaps some of my best work. The two studies on selected Psalms both have special resonance for me, especially Soul Songs which is in some ways a study on six Psalms that have meant a lot to me personally over recent years. For what it’s worth, the best seller to date is I Believe on the Apostles’ Creed – not sure what the significance of that is.
This Good Book Guide aims to fill out the content of the short statements of this creed which are so familiar to us.
By encountering the God who works through the circumstances of life, we can discover the God who can turn our ‘poverty’ to ‘plenty’ through Jesus Christ.
These studies look at six psalms to ‘sing’ in the workplace. For many Christians there is a gap between church on Sunday and work on Monday. These songs encourage us to bridge that gap.
Exploring love, temptation, fear and guilt from the Psalms, in these psalms you will find medicine for your soul. Learn to fear God instead of others.
This whistle-stop tour gives a clear overview of all the main themes of Ezekiel.
These six Bible-studies open up Zechariah’s reassuring and revitalizing message for God’s discouraged people, including God’s great international building project; His solution to sin; His promised Shepherd-King; His great Day of judgement and salvation.
These studies provide a great opportunity to find out the truth about Jesus, taking you on a journey of discovery as the disciples learn who Jesus really is.
This Good Book Guide will help you to know and understand Jesus just as Mark knew Him – nothing that people expected, but more than any of us could hope for.
The key question that Peter addresses in his first letter is this: how should we respond to the suffering we experience?

In Revelation 2-3 the risen Jesus brings a message of comfort and hope to those who are under pressure and a wake-up call to those who are compromised.
