Smack Heads and Fat Cats by Chris Duffett

Outlines a new vision for evangelism. The inspiration for the book came after Chris met a drug addict who he thought was going to die in front of him after taking a bad hit of heroin. “I prayed for someone who people would call a dirty ‘smackhead’ and I saw God heal him in front of my very eyes. It changed my life and his.

Chris is the real deal. His book is written in a catchy and earthy style. Great stories that will make you laugh and cry. Truth that will refresh your soul. His encouragement to be the good news is infectious. Buy it. Read it. Live it. And give it away.
Nic Harding, Senior Pastor Frontline Church Liverpool

Big Hearted by Chris Duffett

bigheartedLooks at what it means to serve a big hearted God and what it means to be big hearted Church. The book is all about going to the least, the lost and the last. It’s about going to those who haven’t heard or experienced the good news of Jesus plus loads of ideas of how to do that as church.

“This book is enormous fun to read. But don’t be deceived, the content of the message is about as profound as anything you will come across.
Dr Nigel G. Wright

“This book will be an invaluable inspiration…though for church life as it now is, it needs to carry a health warning!”
From the Foreword by John Drane

Questioned Christian by Chris Duffett

questionedA book of 30 poems by Chris Duffett. Chris writes: I pray that you will find something good and challenging in this hodgepodge of a collection of poems. I hope that as you read them, somehow you may encounter the presence of the One who loves us and gave his life for us and sends us out to let the world in on what we’ve got.

Re:union by Anina Thomas

ReUnionmys•tical un•ion: A deep, conscious awareness of our direct, intimate and inseparable communion with God. Many people are experiencing dynamic encounters with God which, although prevalent in scripture, revival history and the mystical tradition, are often not common in contemporary Western Christianity. Re:Union encourages us into a deeper relationship with Jesus and affirms His invitation to enjoy unbroken heavenly union with God as a daily reality.

This is a book by an authentic Christian mystic who not only has her own stories to tell of her adventures in the spirit realm but who has also chosen to root herself in the long and venerable history of Christian mysticism, sharing with us valuable insights from such great historical figures as Francis of Assisi and Theresa of Avila. It seems that in Anina we are blessed with the merging of two streams: the ancient mystical tradition and the contemporary charismatic movement. Well worth a read.
Ben Pugh, Lecturer in Theology, Cliff College

Re:Union reads like a glorious sunrise dawning on a new day; a carpeted array of delicate, delightful snow drops defying the hardness of the ground or the harshness of the winter; a golden display of daffodils declaring that the winter is past and gone – it’s Springtime!… It is a total joy to commend Re:Union.
