Church attendance goes ballistic at Christmas! It's really important to have a high-quality resource to give to visitors. 'Christmas - A Chance to Discover' has been specifically written with this in mind.
Cost effective, but professionally produced, this twenty-page booklet points out the surprises and the discoveries which are there at this special time of year, but especially the surprising joy that there is in discovering Jesus Christ!
This book contains answers to frequently-asked questions about Christianity. It does not aim simply to give intellectual answers but answers that the reader can accept on different levels. The book aims to answer questions in a way that brings us back to the message of the Gospel. Mark Greenwood writes, “I believe that as a Christian, not only can I prove the reality of Christ to myself by the changes he has made in my life but that I can prove logically, biblically and historically to others that the claims He made were real”.
The Journey is a devotional journal for those who have just become Christians. In this booklet, they will discover the simple principles of making the most of living their Christian lives. There are testimonies included from Christians to help to cheer the new believer on. These are useful also for people who are very near to coming to faith. it’s a great one to put in your new believer's packs as a “next steps” guide.
The very first of these stunning magazines seeks to change the perception that people have of the Christian faith. As with all the Look Closer publications, it is full of optical illusions, commissioned photography, puzzles and testimonies, with Mark regularly cropping up to explain the gospel in a clear, nonreligious way. Mark believes that half the battle is changing the perception people have of the Christian faith and Look Closer aims to do just that.
This full-colour, glossy magazine is packed full of festive fun, helpful articles and interviews, making it the perfect gift for visitors at Christmas. Our festive Christmas edition of Look Closer magazine has interviews with well-known celebrities including Cannon & Ball, Tim Vine, and Graham Cole. There are articles on: How to lose those Christmas pounds, How to stay in credit, Staying secure in the holiday period, and The Problem with Christmas is… There is a Bumper Family Quiz, Puzzles and much more.
In this special issue of Look Closer, Mark has taken just one of the books in the Bible – the book of Mark – to introduce you to the life of Jesus. It’s a great place to start. Mark partnered with CLC International and Tyndale to produce this stunning presentation of Mark’s Gospel from the New Living Translation. Each chapter presents engaging testimonies and helpful features to help those who are reading the Bible for the first time. In each of the three ‘Mark on Mark’ articles, Mark explains one aspect of the gospel, which relates to what the reader has or is just about to read. This is a great way to get unchurched people to read the Bible.
So far, we have printed around 30,000 copies of this highly visual evangelistic booklet. At only eighteen pages long, The Big Welcome aims to 'scratch where you itch' and help the readers discover a God who loves them, knows them and wants to welcome them back into a friendship with himself. With it’s short and clear presentation it’s a great giveaway for non-believers, church guests or those who have just begun to follow Jesus.
Walking with Jesus enables good foundations to be laid for those starting out on the journey of following Jesus. As such it is ideal for those who have just completed Alpha or have recently come to faith.
Faithbook is a simple guide for those who want to share their Christian faith with other faiths. It covers what are the basic beliefs of other faiths, and gives some basic guidance on how to approach talking about your faith with those from different faiths.

The Boot Camp course normally runs over a 4 week (seven-session) period and is used in conjunction with the Boot Camp manual. The course manual is designed to work with the Boot Camp mp3 CD in either of two ways – Mark Greenwood presenting it live over four weeks, or with the CD as a seven-session course with a member of your congregation or homegroup hosting each evening. This CD contains all seven sessions. Please note: This CD is in mp3 format and requires a CD player (or computer) that is able to play mp3 files.
These manuals are usually bought for use on the Boot Camp course, but also work well when they are bought with the Boot Camp audio CDs. They bullet point the main points from each Boot Camp evening and provide plenty of space for notes to be recorded. They are normally bought in bulk, but those who wish to buy a single copy to use with the Boot Camp CDs can do so.
