Welcome to Free Church Books!
Established in 2018, we are a resource for all faithful Christians. Our aim? To encourage, challenge and surprise God’s people with the truth about Him, as is particularly found in good Christian books.
Bible study, communal worship, prayer and reflection - these are the fundamental ways in which our faith is nurtured. But for as long as there have been Christians, there have been writings about God, about faith and about the Christian life. It is part of how we deepen and share our fellowship with Christ, and it’s not just for the experts. Everyone can benefit from excellent Christian books – you just have to find the right ones for you.
How do I choose?
That's where Free Church Books comes in. We take books from solid Christian publishers and ask people you can trust to review them. That way, you can know that these books are Biblically faithful, spiritually encouraging and at the right level for you.
Our book reviewers come primarily from the Free Church of Scotland, both ministers and ‘normal' members. It’s always helpful to hear what our ministers think, with their training and experience, but it’s often most encouraging to hear from ordinary folk, with their likes, dislikes and grounded perspectives. And we’re always on the lookout for more reviewers to come on board!
As you will see, our reviewers are not all from the Free Church – we don’t have the monopoly on good theology. Some are Free Church members whom life has taken away from Scotland, others are like-minded Christians who have reached out to join the team. All are faithful believers.
Where can I get it?
We don’t just recommend great books, we sell them too! Our online shop is run in partnership with 10ofthose, so there are always low prices, great deals and good customer service. The catalogue is extensive, covering the best of new publications, old classics and Free Church favourites too. 10ofthose do all the hard work, but when you shop through us, a percentage of the sale price comes back to the Free Church to support our work and mission.
Fundamentally, we just love sharing the best books about Jesus in every way possible, and there are many ways you can connect with us:
- Our reviews are all available here, on our website, but you can also sign up to our mailing list to get a monthly digest.
- The best of our reviews are published each month in The Record, the Free Church’s denominational magazine.
- Our shop homepage features many of the books we have reviewed recently, and offers access to the whole 10ofthose range.
- We share unmissable deals and our favourite books on our social media platforms. Connect with us on Twitter or Instagram to be part of the conversation.
