The story of an unexpected and terribly inconvenient Christian conversion, told by a very unlikely convert, Take This Bread tells the story of a restaurant cook and writer who wandered into a church and found herself transformed, setting up a food pantry around the same altar where she first received the body of Christ.

Booklets in this first series: On which days was Christ crucified and resurrected? Can we know the year of Christ's crucifixion? Does the Bible’s Creation account accord with scientific discovery? Was Christ crucified on a cross? Why should families symbolise the church and kingdom of God? Who should take the bread and wine, and when? Can we be born again during this earthly life? What annual festivals should Christians celebrate? Is there a Holy Spirit God-person? What is the true gospel? When does the law end for a Christian? Should Christians celebrate a weekly Sabbath? Each booklet in this series focuses on one theme that is also covered more briefly in the 350-page book “Israel and the Covenants in New Testament Times”. Each study's conclusions come from what the Bible reveals consistently, answering all the objections the writer has heard, to leave nothing even apparently contradicted by any other Bible text. By this means they confirm that the booklet provides rock-solid Bible truth and that the Bible is truly the word of God. Despite this, as the booklets' series title suggests, these conclusions are typically unexpected – a primary aim in writing and sharing them. If you find anything unpalatable, please recognise that God is the real author of what these booklets show and the author little more than a researcher and collator of the subject matter. Therefore, if you the reader cannot refute what a booklet in this series asserts directly from the Bible (surely nobody can), please give God your thanks and praise for allowing you to come to the truth from Him. [“Israel and the Covenants in New Testament Times” may be ordered on-line in the UK from Amazon.co.uk or at good bookshops, and internationally from Amazon.com, in paperback or Amazon Kindle format: A4, 352 pages (Paragon Publishing: ISBN-10: 1-908341-68-8, ISBN-13: 978-1-908341-68-6.)]

"This book explores how people survive in the face of incredible odds. When our backs are against the wall, what are our interests, identities, and practices? When are we self-centered, empathetic and altruistic, or ambivalent? How much agency do the desperate have-or want? Such was the situation in the Blockade of Leningrad, nearly 900 days from 1941 to 1944, in which over one million civilians died-but more survived due to gumption and creativity. How did they survive, and how did survival reinforce or reshape identities, practices, and relations under Stalin? Using diaries, recollections, police records, interviews, and state documents from Leningrad, this book shows average Leningraders coping with war, starvation, and extreme uncertainty. Local relations and social distance matter significantly when states and institutions falter under duress. Opportunism and desperation were balanced by empathy and relations. One key to Leningraders' practices was relations to anchors-entities of symbolic and personal significance that anchored Leningraders to each other and a sense of community. Such anchors as food and Others shaped practices of empathy and compassion, and opportunism and egoism. By exploring the state and shadow markets, food, families, gender, class, and death, and suffering, Wartime Suffering and Survival relays Leningraders' stories to show a little-told side of Russian and Soviet history, and to explore the human condition and who we really are. This speaks not only to rethinking the nature of the Soviet Union and Stalinism, but also the nature of social relations, practices, and people more generally"--
