biblesLogo We are sad to say that this is our last post on this blog, but don’t worry! we have just re-located and you can now find us at .

Well its been a busy few weeks, and our new web store is now fully up and running. The orders have started coming in, so a massive thanks to everyone who has supported the Faith Mission so far with our new Online Store!

Since we launched the new online shop we have decided to consolidated all our various older sites to now live here all under the domain. Be sure to add us to you’re RSS feed or to keep checking back for more updates!

From time to time, we will also be handing promotions, special discounts and promo-codes out via our other streams listed at the bottom;

All our web offers will also be available in your local store, subject to stock availability, so please do come in and physically check us out as well.

We are excited about the opportunities that this new store offers and have already begun to see a wider base of customers emerge, people who maybe do not have a high street christian retailer nearby. We would love to see this grow further so ask that if you would like to support us you could do so by recommending us to your friends, family or church.

If you have any suggestions for the site we would love to hear from you, so please get in contact with us!

The Selfless Gene

May 26, 2009

9780340964361[1]In the Selfless Gene, Charles Foster assesses the claims of Neo-Darwinists and Young Earth Creationists, demonstrating that orthodox Christianity is not incompatible with what evolutionary biology says about our world. The real issue, he argues, centres around the ethical implications of natural selection, and what such a system – based on selfishness, waste and death – might say about the loving creator God of the Christian faith.

Intelligent, provocative and accessible, the Selfless Gene offers the prospect of reasoned dialogue between faith and scientific study, and a reconciliation of what are popularly seen as two opposing worldviews.

“An important antidote to the shrill hysteria about evolution.” Sam Berry, Professor Emeritus of Genetics, UCL

Charles Foster is a writer, barrister, and tutor in Medical Law and Ethics at the University of Oxford and sits as part-time judge in the criminal and civil courts. His two most recently published books are the Jesus Inquest (an inquiry into the historicity of the resurrection) and Tracking the Ark of the Convenant.

Portadown News

May 15, 2009

The Faith Mission Bookshop in Portadown, just this week picked up a short listing and 3rd place award at the annual Christian Booksellers Convention (CBC). The short listing and 3rd place came in the Large retailer of the year award which takes in almost 400 shops across the UK.  To get noticed in such a large category is a superb achievement for the relatively new shop.  Much of the current success of the shop is down to last Septembers move to a brand new premises in Portadown, the hard work of manager Jim Mckee and his staff and the addition of a Coffee Shop to the premises. The new bright and open layout is both welcoming and relaxed, and is attracting people who never knew there was a Christian bookshop in town. All of this has developed during the current difficult economic climate but amazingly the shop has experienced more customers and higher turnover than ever. The recognition by the trade at CBC is the icing on the cake.

Faith Mission Bookshops also launched a new online shop in April, it becomes our 20th shop in UK & Ireland & currently our Ballymena shop is undergoing major refurbishment which should see it emulate the success of the Portadown shop. People are coming from all over Ireland to see the shop, why not drop in and see for yourself.

ESV Study Bible

April 27, 2009

esvsb-featureThe Publishers of this Bible, Crossway, tell us that “The ESV Study Bible was created to help people understand the Bible in a deeper way—to understand the timeless truth of God’s Word as a powerful, compelling, life-changing reality. To accomplish this, the ESV Study Bible combines the best and most recent evangelical Christian scholarship with the highly regarded ESV Bible text. The result is the most comprehensive study Bible ever published—with 2,752 pages of extensive, accessible Bible resources.” I have to say that it is as comprehensive & feature filled as the description says. The website they have produced for this release is simply brilliant for help & guidance before purchasing a copy. You can visit the site where you will also find a free preview of the study Bible, here. You can also visit their blog here. Endorsed by John Piper, Mark Driscoll, Jerry Bridges, Joni Eareckson Tada, JI Packer and many more this has been a very popular Bible since its release. We blogged about it here when we first got our hands on it back in Dec08 but for a limited period we have been offering the Bible at a reduced price & now that our online shop is up & running we wanted to remind you of this wonderful Bible at a great price.  The RSP is currently £39.99  and we are pleased, for a limited time to offer the ESV Study Bible at £27.99.
