Up From The Ashes: A Syrian Christian Doctor’s Story Of Sacrifice, Endurance and Hope by ‘Dr. A’ with Samara Levy

In one of the most brutal wars of the twenty-first century, millions of Syrians fled for a safer life elsewhere.  Dr. A was one of the few medical doctors that stayed.  Driven by his Christian faith,  Dr. A. risked his own safety, and that of his family, to care for innocent lives caught in the epicentre of a war zone through the most aggressive years of the Syrian war. His world exploded and collapsed around him, losing his home, hospital, family and friends.  Yet he remained uncompromising in his commitment to serve his people, through endurance – fuelled by prayer and bound by hope.

Broken Signposts by Tom Wright

Justice, Love, Spirituality, Beauty, Freedom, Truth and Power.  These are ideals that we all shrive for, yet so often we find ourselves falling short.  Why is that? In this deeply insightful meditation, Tom Wright looks to the Gospel of John for answers.  With his characteristic wisdom, he shows how John can help us to see not only why we strive for these ideals, or ‘signposts’, but also why we so often experience them as broken.

Miriam’s Song by Jill Eileen Smith

Miriam was a girl who dreamed of freedom, a woman who longed for love, a leader who made mistakes, and a friend who valued connection,  Jill Eileen Smith offers this story to imagine how Miriam navigated the challenge of holding on to hope, building a family in the midst of incredible hardship, and serving as a leader of difficult people, all while living in her brother’s shadow.
