The Doorway to Transformation: Collected Writings

by Ian Shelton

"Complied over more than 20 years, these collected writings represent a lifetime of practical ministry experience. The principles expressed here are more than theory, they have been implemented on the ground among real people in real places. They have been tried and tested. These writings are lessons learned over the long haul, from years of labouring to see the church of a city unify across denominational and theological divides and pull together missionally so that a community might experience the Gospel."


Fathers: Building Family, Church and Community

by Ian Shelton

"Fatherlessness is the biggest problem facing society. Wives need a responsible husband, and children need a father who is involved in their lives and is in the home. Communities need the fathers and mothers to stand together for the good of all. This manual is not a book or even a detailed comment on fathers or the lack of them. It is simply a list of relevant Scriptures from the Bible about fathering, with a few short remarks about each Scripture. The manual is meant to be read slowly and reflectively with time to allow each Scripture to sink in. The most important aspect of this exercise is for the father to take time to pray over the Scripture and to ask God to help him be the responsible, loving father that his family and his community so desperately need. It is my opinion, in light of Scripture and my own experience, that fathers are indispensable in the raising of families and the building of secure communities. My prayer is that fathers will support each other to be even better fathers, and especially that they will work together for the sake of the fatherless in their communities."
