“A remarkable book by a courageous and inspiring young man.” — Yorkshire Evening Post
Tony tells the true story of a young British man whose life is cut short by illness. As he battles with poor health, Tony is wonderfully saved by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Like many young people today, Tony’s life was hectic … out until the early hours, enjoying martial arts, and spending time with his girlfriend.
One day, a dull ache began in his back. Soon, his life
years later, Tony could say …
“I have never been so contented as I am now. This statement comes as a surprise to many people who assume I should be bitter. How is it possible for a young man of 21 years to face agonies of pain, relieved only by increased doses of morphine and heroine, the prospect of decreased mobility and, indeed, of death itself, and yet to say that he is happier and more fulfilled than he has ever been?”
It’s a compelling and moving story, which Tony tells in his own words.
Mayflower Christian Books is delighted to announce the reprinting of The Mayflower Pilgrims and their Pastor — to mark the 400 year anniversary of the ship’s voyage to America.
Author David Fountain describes the firmly-held beliefs of the Pilgrims and their Pastor, John Robinson, and their desire to be able to live and worship according to their conscience — issues that are highly relevant for today.
This book, priced at £6 plus postage, will prove a valuable reference for today’s pastors, scholars and those interested in Protestant church history.
“David Fountain’s book is a welcome popular account of the earliest New England settlers, for the present volume helps to bring our ancestors back into proper focus. They certainly were not philosophers of freedom, nor rebels against the crown, but humble servants of God.”
– Pastor Walter Chantry, Pennsylvania, USA

What about a daily devotions book to help someone in 2020?
We’ve got a range of daily readings titles here which are great for Christians. But also consider Bible Treasure booklets which are helpful for older children, teenagers or adults who have little or no knowledge of the Bible.
Mayflower Christian Books is pleased to announce the latest reprint of ‘A Stone Made Smooth’ – this challenging and inspiring account of the work that God did in and through the life of Wong Ming-Dao.
(See below for how to order your copy today – and also trade discounts)
This is his account of his early life and conversion and his early years as a minister, including under the Japanese occupation of southern China.
No Christian Chinese leader in the 20th century has more clearly articulated the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, or more poignantly experienced what the Apostle Paul described as “the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings”.
Released after 23 years of in prison, Wong Ming-Dao told how the word of the prophet Micah had sustained him: “But as for me, I keep watch for the Lord, I wait in hope for God my saviour; My God will hear me.”
There is great spiritual help to be found in all of the writings by John Newton. This is a collection of daily readings from his works, which are mostly made up of his correspondence.
His Cardiphonia (letters) have been treasured by pastors for many years and give real insight and wisdom in how to deal with those who have various spiritual conditions and concerns.
The teaching of God’s word, Christian experience and practice are all beautifully combined and balanced in the counsel given by John Newton.
john Newton readily admits his own failures and struggles and uses the lessons he has learned to encourage others. Ever turning the reader to God’s grace and the riches we have in Christ, these readings provide much food and balm to the soul.
To read and meditate on the portion given for each day, cannot but deepens and gladden the believers walk with God.
