- Rejoice and Tremble: The Surprising Good News of the Fear of the Lord by Michael Reeves (RRP: £15.99 now £10.99)
Fear is one of the strongest human emotions—and one that often baffles Christians. In the Bible, the picture can seem equally confusing: is fear a good thing or a bad thing?

Coming from two authors with scientific backgrounds, this book recognises the huge advances made through science and their beneficial impact on society. However, it also expresses concern that the essentially tentative nature of scientific conclusions is being replaced by a growing tendency to accord to science the last word on a range of subjects. This book argues persuasively that we should recognise the limitations of science as well as its unquestionable strength.
