Books on Prayer
||Army On Its Knees
by Janet Munn and Stephen Court
This book is not intended to be just another pleasant read. It calls for our response, describing the fundamentals of prayer - from private prayer to missional prayer. It is both an exciting testimony to the power of prayer and a call to arms for this new generation.

||White Cloud Soaring
by Judith Bennett
The idea of praying 24 hours a day 7 days a week is nothing new. Isaiah describes watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem who keep praying day and night. White Cloud Soaring is a 'Down Under' version of Red Moon Rising by Pete Greig and Dave Roberts. Both books tell the story of 24-7 Prayer in the two hemispheres.

Conversations with God
by Bruce Power
A beautiful devotional work which opens up the Psalms as a resource for prayer and meditation, as we read the Psalms through the eyes of those who wrote them.
The author helps us to appreciate the range of our human experiences in the light of our affirmation of a God who is ultimately in control of the world.

Books on Justice
||Be A Hero
by Wesley Campbell and Stephen Court
Be a Hero is a battle cry challenging the Body of Christ to be enlisted in the greatest battle of all times-the battle for mercy and social justice. The book opens with God's interaction in the affairs of men and His plan to redeem the 'invisible' people through justice, mercy and compassion. Setting the stage theologically the authors then unveil the great exploits of those who have gone before us and the impact that they made in their own times and on their own culture. Recommended.

by S Carvosso Gauntlett and Danielle Strickland
Originally published as Social Evils the Army has Challenged', authored by S. Carvosso Gauntlett, Just Salvos have released a reprint of this book as Challenging Evil. The original text is intact, but the book now includes brand new discussion guides written by Major Danielle Strickland. The combination of Gauntlett and Strickland, the alignment of grassroots stories from the core of The Salvation Army's mission and discussion guides around old fashion evils in modern day wrapping, and the challenge and inspiration to continue on the work of those who have gone before is pure genius.

50 Ways to do Justice
by Tim & Laura Gittins and Peter & Eileen Holley
To do justice requires knowing how to recognise injustice when we see it. This means becoming informed about the issues, knowing the facts and not being misledby prejudice and ignorance. As Christians we are called to be salt and light in this world, to let our light shine in the darkness - the light of hope and the light of God's love. This means speaking out against injustice, standing up for the oppressed and making a difference. This book is full of ideas and suggestions about how you and your family, your Church or local community can stand up against injustice and try to bring about a more just world.
