What evangelicals need most in these turbulent and trying times in the Church of England is courage, persistence, and joy. In this punchy new booklet, Lee Gatiss unpacks some of what the Bible says on these themes and applies them to our hearts today.

"I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage." (Philippians 1:20)

"My only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me." (Acts 20:24)

"Do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength." (Nehemiah 8:10)

Courage is unashamedly proclaiming the gospel together, whatever the cost. Confidence in the face of fear, boldness in the face of struggles, and endurance in the face of setbacks.

We must persist in our duty, despite opposition and uncertainty, to the end - in teaching, with vigilance, and with our eyes on the eternal prize.

And because God's friends share God's delight in the recovery of the lost, despite our trying circumstances in the Church of England right now we can "Rejoice in the Lord, again I will say it, rejoice!"

This short (56 pages) and provocative book will refresh your heart amidst all the battles going on in the Church of England right now, and focus your attention on the Lord who alone can save us. Buy your copy now!
