On the Shelf for April 2021

Several new books and DVDs have been added to the Library collection. We hope you will enjoy them.


THROUGH ALL THE CHANGING SCENES by David W. EllisTHROUGH ALL THE CHANGING SCENES by David W. Ellis

“Following God’s call to cross cultural mission, Ellis’ experience from riots, political upheaval, physical hardship, and burn out, to caring for his wife, Adèle, through her Alzheimer’s, he would have been unable to hold fast without a robust biblical understanding of God’s providence and sovereignty. With feeling and honesty Ellis weaves anecdote with biblical meditation, allowing scripture (especially the pivotal Psalm 2) to form the lens through which the world, in all its frightening chaos, is viewed. A personal, pastoral, faith building read, it offers scriptural reflection not trite answers – robust biblical wisdom for guidance, encouragement and challenge for Christians of all ages and stages.”


YouAreNeverAloneYOU ARE NEVER ALONE by Max Lucado

Max Lucado’s new book takes from the Gospel of John the miracles of Christ to show the truth that you are not alone. God’s presence is always with us and will meet us “in the midst of life’s messes.”
