  • Everyday Moments with God, 2010 (hardcover and eBook)
  • Peeking Through the Knothole: Scenes for the Soul from the 1940s, 2006 (hardcopy and eBook)
  • NEW! Two Old Goats and One Good Shepherd (236 pages)   “Wear it out, use it up, make it do or do without.”

Alma Barkman and her husband ignored the experts warning them they were  destined for financial failure as a one wage household.  They chose  instead to  embark on a faith journey that included the Biblical balance of  having “neither poverty nor riches.” (Proverbs 30:8)  Achieving the goal of  simple  living was not without its humour, nor the abundant life without its  challenges. Upon reflection, their success as a couple of do-it-yourselfers  could be summed up by the author’s comical aunt, “Not bad, for two old goats.”

  • Happy Together: Daily Insights for Families from Scripture seeks to provide young couples who may be considering today’s options, wisdom on relationships from the Bible interspersed with experiences from life. The book is for those families with little time or scriptural background. Dr. J I Packer has provided the foreword.


  • Guess Who’s Coming to Reign: Jesus Talks about His Return is based on Jesus’ discourse on future events found in Matthew 24 and 25. It attempts to engage the curious second coming seekers with some basic scriptural facts and events that give us reliable pointers to His return.


  • Anointed Preaching: The Holy Spirit and the Pulpit is a review of available literature on this subject at the time of writing. It considers the Pentecostal/Charismatic claim of “anointed preaching,” and how it has affected Christian growth and fidelity to the Bible.


  • Gone with the Spirit: Tracking the Holy Spirit through the Bible gives an overview of a subject that has become clouded by friction and misunderstanding. It provides an overview of the person and work of the Holy Spirit as He reveals Himself through both Old and New Testaments of the Bible.


  • Getting to Know You 1 and 2 These two books are study guides through the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The first, Seeking God in the Old Testament, follows the development of God’s covenant with Israel while the second, Finding Christ in the New Testament, follows the widening of the New Covenant for all through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.


  • Jesus: Is He Really God? Does It Really Matter? responds to the questions: Was Jesus Christ divine? Does the Bible really teach that? Does it matter, anyway? These questions have dogged Christianity since the Enlightenment, and continue to do so now. This book reviews His emphatic and numerous “I Am” claims to deity in John’s Gospel.


  • Prostate Cancer: My Story of Survival This book relates the story of Bryan’s journey through prostate cancer during 2008 and 2009. Bryan blogged his experience, even writing from his hospital bed. He recorded the discovery and diagnosis of the disease, surgery, and recovery, with its discomfort and setbacks. May this record help guide and comfort others facing the same process.


  • War Kids: Growing Up in World War Two England This book, its stories based on actual events, covers the period from about 1940 until Ann and Bryan met in their early teens in 1950. But their lives during the war were vastly different. Bryan grew up in a stable home, so the war affected him more than Ann. For her, the dangers of war were a background to the greater threat of her impaired home.


  • Happy Together: Daily Insights for Families from Scripture This is the second edition of our popular book Happy Together. The content is the same, but condensed to a page-a-day. We’ve added titles and a text from the day’s reading and a relevant prayer for each day. We’ve also added a Subject Index and updated the Scripture Index. The original foreword by Dr. J I Packer is included.

  • Destiny’s Hands, Word Alive Press, 2012 (Biblical fiction) The Israelites have been slaves of the Egyptians for four hundred years. Nineteen-year-old Bezalel hasn’t suffered as much as most. From an early age his talents as a carver and goldsmith have assured him training and satisfying work on Pharaoh’s Pi-Ramesses craft guild. Moses’ sudden return to Goshen changes all that. His promise of deliverance followed by ten destructive plagues forces Bezalel to choose between a satisfying career in Egypt and loyalty to his people. Cost: $17.99 + $4.00 postage within Canada
