Gender historian Dr Lisa Nolland shares her pressing concerns and a selection of books
For years now I have tracked the pan-sexual revolution and its promotion by an increasingly totalitarian state.
I am concerned about the apparent inability of the Church to engage with some of the most pressing issues of the day, especially the now ubiquitous LGBTQI rights agenda which takes no prisoners. Gay is the new black, and God help those who dissent. The political parties (with the possible exception of UKIP) have mostly signed on, and increasingly the institutions of the land are co-opted (or keep silent), even the Church.

“It is impossible for the Christian life to be boring or uneventful”
Knowing some of Charlynne’s background, it was a privilege to read this book, for it brings you right into the intimate relationship between Charlynne and the Holy Spirit. We read their conversations and exchanges in prayer. We see how people are brought to faith, healed or delivered, consoled, counselled and edified through prophecy.

What is God doing in Israel?
(Monarch Books, £8.99)
reviewed by Charles Gardner
This time of year is particularly poignant for the Ortiz family, because late March sees the festival of Purim, when teenager Ami was virtually blown apart by a bomb disguised as a traditional holiday gift.
The bomb was aimed at his father, a believer in Yeshua/Jesus, the Jewish Messiah.
By A E Marchant
This compelling, true story takes you through the author’s very troubled life which led to his becoming a full-blown alcoholic with only days to live. But he survived.
In his own words, the author says: “I survived by way of a very powerful, spiritual happening, a ‘divine intervention’. This very moving book will help anyone in any stage of this terrible illness to give up the booze forever, and like I did, embark on a whole new life without the bottle, for a life you may not have known existed other than your hell hole you are now in.
Currently there is a dearth of books about the return of Jesus Christ. Mark’s second book aims to fill this gap. (His first was, Has God really finished with Israel?)
It describes the different millennial views: amillennial, postmillennial and premillennial. The reader is helped to decide which view best fits the biblical evidence, while learning about the origin and popularity of each view in Church history.
