4. Through the Year with the Pilgrim Fathers by Stephen Poxon

Stephen Poxon invites us into a closer relationship with God in this daily devotional exploring the faith of the Pilgrim Fathers.

Part of the inspiring Through the Year With series.

The year 2020 witnesses the 400th anniversary of the voyage made by the Pilgrim Fathers, who sailed from England to America on board the Mayflower. This epic excursion signalled one of the most significant episodes in Christian history, making as it did an enormous impact on the trajectory of Christianity in the USA. Through the Year with the Pilgrim Fathers is a commemorative edition featuring excerpts relating to that event. It is a story of faith, adventure and courage.

Each excerpt is married to a verse of Scripture and a prayer, providing 365 daily readings telling the story of great exploits in God’s service.

5. Through the Year with John Newton by Stephen Poxon

365 daily readings inspired by the works of John Newton, author of the hymn “Amazing Grace.”

Part of the inspiring Through the Year With series.

The Christian life of John Newton was remarkable: from a childhood marked by the tragic death of his mother and the estrangement of his father, to a ministry as a hugely influential Anglican cleric. Known worldwide as the author of Amazing Grace, it would be nonetheless remiss to focus on this one achievement at the expense of the many.

Through the Year With John Newton seeks to delve into the character and Christian compassion of John Newton, taking the reader through daily reflections based upon his works, carrying the spirit of Newton into the modern age.

6. More Than Words by Hannah Dunnett

Part meditation, part scripture, all visually beautiful; this collection of images painted by Hannah Dunnett explores how we can reflect on God’s word through imagery, as well as words.

Hannah Dunnett’s beautiful artwork, interweaving Bible verses and images, has inspired many people. From sailing boats bobbing on the river to majestic trees and soaring mountains, Hannah paints pictures that help us understand scripture and reflect on God’s word in a fresh way.

Hannah has chosen twenty-four of her favourite pictures and tells the story behind each one. As she draws out key verses and their meaning and offers questions to reflect on, readers will gain new insight and understanding. This beautiful collection of beloved artwork is divided into four sections: The Wondrous Cross, Father God, Teach me Your Ways, and Let Your Light Shine, and will take individual readers, or small groups, on a journey further towards the heart of God.

10. Then Sings My Soul by Pam Rhodes

BBC’s Songs of Praise presenter Pam Rhodes reflects on her forty favourite hymns in Then Sings My Soul.

Pam is a passionate advocate for our heritage of splendid hymns. Hymns, she explains, help us respond to God: they are “prayers in our pockets”. With her warm personal touch she describes how these hymns came to be written, and considers the perceptions they contain. Each reflection concludes with a short prayer.

Then Sings My Soul is a treasury of fascinating detail, but it is also a source of devotion: as you consider each hymn and the story behind it you will be drawn into worship.
