Counterfeit gods : when the empty promises of love, money and power let you down by Timothy Keller.
Summary: Two thousand years ago, the most developed nations in the world worshipped idols - gods of wood and stone. Today we may laugh at their ignorance, but the modern manifestations of idolatry are no less foolish and just as harmful to our wellbeing. Timothy Keller looks at the issue of idolatry throughout the Bible, from the worship of actual idols in the Old Testament to the love of money by the rich young ruler in Jesus' parable. Using these classic stories, Keller cuts through our dependence on the glittering false gods of money, sex and power to uncover the path towards trust in the real ultimate - God.

Delighted in God : a biography of George Müller by Roger Steer.
Summary: In the early 1830s George Müller embarked on an extaordinary adventure.

God that's not fair by Dick Dowsett.
Summary: Judgement and hell are not attractive subjects to discuss. How do you square the concepts of God's love and everlasting punishment, both of which are clearly set out in the Bible? Dick Dowsett assumes the role of a preacher whose sermon on the judgement of God has offended a young hearer. The ensuing correspondence between the two gently, and thoroughly, engages with the latter's objections and questions, ranging from the problem of those who die without hearing about Christ to whether there is more than one way to God. The result sheds light on a vexed problem - and issues an urgent call to the task of evangelism.

This study of Jesus Christ's preaching will assist both the preacher and the congregation in their quests to honor the Lord with their respective responsibilities in worhip.
