Lucy’s songwriting ability is already well documented, having released 6 SAND albums. However, Faith Adventures is Lucy’s first venture into writing. It is a collection of her devotional thoughts, written from her real life experiences and encounter with God. Lucy shares her personal and sometimes intimate stories of her journey in faith and worship.
Her devotions challenge people to walk in faith and also capture an accurate perspective of what God expects in our worship. She writes of how God speaks to her, how she obeys and how God turns impossible situations to become a blessing.  Lucy is able to draw lessons from God in her everyday life. Some of her stories are related to her 2 children, her relationship with her husband, where her songs come from or taking the SAND team for a concert. Her stories and lessons in life are very inspiring.
Faith Adventures is easy to read. The devotions will encourage you to “jump” in faith and worship God intimately.

Bribery and Corruption: Biblical Reflections and Case Studies for the Marketplace in Asia
Graceworks’ latest publication, Bribery and Corruption: Biblical Reflections and Case Studies for the Marketplace in Asia is now available for ppurchase. The external pressures faced by Christians in the marketplace in Asia are the same as those faced by Christians worldwide. Few of us have sufficient inner spiritual strength and pastoral support to deal with the relentless power of sin as manifested in the corporate world. Increasingly, too, in a globalised economy, there is a need for Christians in the West to understand the ramifications of working in Asia.

This short book is one attempt to respond to the need to help Christians in Asia find a biblical response to the real pressures they face in the marketplace. It takes seriously both the Scriptures and the context in which Asian Christians function. In order to provide a holistic look at the issues involved, Bribery and Corruption begins with a theological framework for grappling with real-time problems, continues with responses from various theologians on the framework presented, and concludes with actual case studies from the marketplace.

The external pressures faced by Christians in the marketplace in Asia are the same as those faced by Christians worldwide. Few of us have sufficient inner spiritual strength and pastoral support to deal with the relentless power of sin as manifested in the corporate world. Increasingly, too, in a globalised economy, there is a need for Christians in the West to understand the ramifications of working in Asia.

How positive! How refreshing! Let’s not harp so much on corruption (especially those of others) and seek to work for justice and joy in people’s lives instead. Let’s not worry about casuistic / legalistic exceptions to bribery and injustice, let’s go out and do good instead. These admonitions – plus very welcomed reflections on Yung’s essay (especially David Gill’s) – were, IMO, the best parts of the book. And if by reading we’re reminded of the importance of working towards the missional goals of God’s kingdom then – despite the goal posts not being completely stationary! – it’s more than a bargain. At least on the non-black market.

Thinking On The Run: Essays on Community, Vocation, Life, Death, Media and Other Stuff
The latest offering in Soo-Inn Tan’s e-commentaries collection, Thinking On The Run remains true to the style of this series. It is personal, for the author intimates details from his own life. It is down-to-earth and does not shy away from the complicated, complex issues of life. And it draws the reader back to God’s truths amidst the cacophony of voices in the world.

Thinking On The Run also challenges the reader to live an upright life despite the difficulties. Using contemporary subjects, Soo-Inn Tan pulls the reader along with him in a quest to probe more deeply into the Christian faith. This is a book that will stimulate, provoke and encourage believers as they go about their daily routines.

In this collection, the honesty, the pithiness, and the fun combine. This is the Pacific Century, we are told, so it is appropriate that a writer on the tip of the Pacific Rim should bless so many people through the internet. Soo-Inn not only runs the race but also thinks on the run. Here his thoughts are preserved to be explored at leisure. So taste them, savour them, ponder them.

 Revelation – A Mid-Tribulation View RM 25.00

Many readers acknowledge difficulty in understanding the book of Revelation. Some avoid it altogether. Part of the problem may be a tendency among interpreters to use prophecies from other parts of the bible, especially the Old Testament, to dictate how we should read Revelation. This commentary treats Revelation as a self-contained and internally consistent work. More emphasis is placed on the natural reading of the text than on similar words and images from other sources. Context and structure take priority over theological presuppositions about the end time. The result is a pleasant surprise. It becomes clear that John organizes and develops his thoughts in a systematic way. The visions no longer appear so mysterious when read in this light. It helps us to sieve through the different interpretive approaches that have contributed to our confusion over this book. Whether or not readers agree with its conclusions, the hope is that this short commentary will help some to no longer feel intimidated by the book of Revelation but to confidently return to it over and over again to be blessed by its message
