This special offer is for UK readers only. Christian Focus are about to release Don Carson's book From the Resurrection to His Return: Living in the last days.

Here's a brief summary:
This short, accessible, book is designed for the whole church. Based on 2 Timothy 3 Carson gives wise counsel to the Church, imploring us to avoid false teachers and to seek good mentors.
The book is due out on the 18th March and Christian Focus are offering a special deal, in partnership with 10ofthose.com, of 35% off from 00:01 on the 18th March until 23:59 on the 19th March. You can pre-order, or order, depending on when you are reading this, by going here.

Here's the blurb:
This is not another book on what view to hold about the reality of Jesus' return but it is about how to live in the light of his imminent return. Don Carson accurately determines that the Christian church has always lived in what the bible terms 'the last days'...the period between his ascension to his Father in heaven and his return on the clouds of heaven.

Based on Paul's teaching in 2 Timothy 3, Don Carson gives wise counsel to today's church to avoid false teaching and to seek good mentors, those who will lead us in truth.

He shows that to rely on worldly wisdom is folly, that the world is utterly sinful, but rather to cling to the Bible as the source of our counsel and guidance and help.
But more than that he shows us that it is in holding the Bible out to a needy world we take its message to where it is needed the most.

To live in the last days is not to hang on in quiet desperation but to boldly take the word of God and apply it to every situation knowing that it will meet every need just as it has throughout the two millennia since Jesus promised to return again. That is how to live in the last days!
