Endorsement written for Pray Big
This is a delightfully warm-hearted, crystal-clear encouragement to bask in the gospel, and to pray in a way which fits with who we are in Christ. This book made me want to "pray big"—which is exactly the point!
Endorsement written for Brave by Faith
This is a brilliant book. Alistair Begg handles the text beautifully and applies it incisively to the specific challenges we face at this cultural moment. Best of all, reading through Daniel 1 – 7 along with this book refreshed and strengthened my confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Endorsement written for Truth For Life - Volume 1
Here speaks a pastor who knows both his Bible and his people. He not only understands the Scriptures but lovingly applies them like medicine for the soul. These daily devotions will do that. They will help you get to know the Bible better and how it fits together. They will stretch your mind with deep, bracing theology expressed with accessible clarity. They will warm and nourish your heart because they breathe the beauty of Christ. I have been struck by the freshness and variety of the devotions, from every part of the Scriptures, and by the pastor’s heart that beats through them. There is rich nourishment here for the soul, the fruit of many years of mining the Scriptures and caring for people.
‘Pray Big’ will expand your understanding of prayer and perhaps show you something new that you could try. I recommend this to Christians who are looking to pray bold and big prayers and believe that He listens and responds in ways that we cannot even begin to imagine. It will bring you closer in your walk and I encourage you to take your time in prayer.... continue reading
This books will change the way you pray, not because Alistair Begg wrote it, but because he takes you to Scripture.... continue reading
I would recommend it to all Christians who are thinking about their prayer life – whether you are just starting out, or have been at it for years.... continue reading
I love Alistair's books. Quality man of God, quality, solid biblical teaching. Stayed the course!
This devotional no exception. Had his Vol 2 last year so wanted to get Vol 1 this year. Not disappointed.
And my confidence in Alastair has not wained despite current controversy, as I know the man's heart and stand on moral issues - much of current public criticism is unbalanced and out of context. Read his book Christian Manifesto to capture something of this man's heart.
I chose this as a Christmas present and am enjoying it very much. It gives you a truth to get your teeth into and mull over during the day. I love the cross-references which link passages in a way that I might not have thought of and the extra passage to read also throws more light on the topic under discussion. I'm not convinced it would work for a new Christian or someone who doesn't know the Bible very well and so may not understand the context of the verse or verses being explained and applied or the cross-references. But if you're reasonably familiar with the Bible and want to deepen your understanding, this book is really good.
This was by far one of my most favorite books that I’ve read this year. It was equally encouraging and convincing with the repeated refrain of the gospel woven throughout each chapter. Alistair uses the words of our risen Lord to remind Christians of the life they have been called to as followers of Jesus. We are not meant to be “normal” by the standard set in society, but rather to pursue a Christ-like response in all that we do. The gift of salvation that we have been given through the shed blood of Jesus should be evident in our daily lives. This counter-culture life is also counter-intuitive to our sinful nature. Alistair reminds us that we too were once enemies of God and that it’s only because of His mercy and love that we can be reconciled to Him. While being justified, we’re still sinners and our “natural” response is not always, or even often, in line with how God instructs us to live.
This is a rather short book and Alistair does a fantastic job at cramming so much gospel truth in every page. Honestly, each of these chapters could’ve been twice as long and I would’ve joyfully read each one. Alistair is always such a wise and gracious theologian and this book is no different. He makes the Bible plain - not in a boring way, but in an easily understood and compassionately encouraging way.
I typically share some of my favorite quotes from books, but I’ve noted nearly every paragraph of this book because it’s just that good. The way Alistair has taken familiar Scripture and brought it to light in a new way, reminding the Christian of the amazing privilege of being in God’s Kingdom while also exhorting them to live out that faith, has made this a must-read book in my opinion.
The Christian Manifesto by Alistair Begg is a short but concisely fleshed out book on the power behind the sermon on the Plain.
“The Sermon on the Plain, then, is Jesus’ invitation to you to experience life at its very best. It is his description of what life in His kingdom-a kingdom where all that is wrong is being made right- looks like as we live in this world.”
He also touches on a few misquoted verses from the sermon, effectively breaking down the context and meaning of each.
“You will hear the phrase ‘Do not judge’ trotted out by the most unlikely people at the most unlikely times and used in the most unlikely ways. So, again, we need to understand exactly what Jesus is, and is not saying here”.
As someone who is admittedly a bit unfamiliar with the phrase “ The Sermon of the Plain,” I was pleasantly appreciative of this little book which shed some much needed insight on the true meanings behind Jesus’ words.
I recommend for all believers.
Very pleased with Post and packaging. And of course items ordered.
Well, I’d love to leave a great review, but for some unknown reason the publishers decided to use the teeniest font size they could find. It’s impossible to read without a magnifying glass! Why on earth would you do that - is it trendy to use a tiny font size or something?! So dreadfully disappointed in wasting my money on something I can’t even read (even with glasses!) :(
Parcel packed very well, delivered on time, all books are of excellent quality.
Bought for a gift, loved by the recipient.
The well-known and loved author Alistair Begg begins each day with a short Bible passage or verse and masterfully opens up the Scripture - almost like a very short sermon, bringing the biblical truth to the reader with an engaging warmth and some powerful insight. These are reflections that deeply challenge as well as encourage - the main attribute of an excellent Bible teacher is being able to impact the hearer by expounding the Word of God accurately, and in these daily reflections Alistair Begg does just that.
My own daily devotionals have been greatly impacted by using “Truth For Life - Vol 1” to the extent that I have often found myself journalling quotes from Alistair Begg that have both encouraged and challenged me. The real life application of these devotionals really are excellent and I can see myself using these for many more years to come.
Alistair Begg also provides an additional Bible reference as further reading at the end of each reflection, which means that you could easily use the Truth for Life for your main daily devotional as it provides two Scripture readings alongside the main devotional.
In conclusion, “Truth for Life” is an excellent daily devotional and it is easy to see why it has become so popular and well-loved. If you don’t have a copy then I highly recommend it as a resource that will be a great blessing to you in your walk with The Lord. Likewise, this new gift edition makes it a great choice of a gift to encourage another believer or family member to start each day afresh with the Gospel.

This devotional is beautiful, well-written, encouraging and helpful. Each day there is a short verse, exhortation, and further scripture references. There is also a yearly Bible reading plan at the end of each day should you want to read the Bible in a year.
I am really enjoying this devotional! It would make a lovely gift.
Stunning from cover to cover, with a beautiful imitation leather, and a lovely ribbon marker.
Full of beautiful scriptural truths, real life applications, and thought provoking ideas, this devotional is one that can be read over and over again. Also included is a one year Bible reading plan to help you dig deeper into the scriptures.
Alistair Begg does a phenomenal job in providing a challenging, uncompromising devotional, while bringing forth biblical wisdom.
I absolutely love this special edition, making it a wonderful gift for any occasion.
Although the print is a little on the smaller side, I appreciate the one page devotional for daily reading.
I highly recommend this as a must add resource to your home!
