This recently published book is intended to meet the needs and interests of a broad audience and is especially appropriate for people who are seekers and question the present scientific and religious worldviews. It will be of particular interest to those who:
• are having trouble dealing with disease or the death of someone close;
• have irrational phobias;
• think life unfairly discriminates against them;
• are often depressed;
• are simply curious about who they are and why they are living this life.
“The Endless Journey” helps answer these and many other common questions. The answers to life’s mysteries and the solution to all our problems are right in front of us; but we don’t see them because we are so focused on the material world. Although the true nature of the cosmos is disguised by the material world, it can be discovered by anyone through effort.
The scientific or religious skeptic will find new perspectives to consider. The novice seeker will find key concepts that can be used as a spiritual foundation for a solid belief system. The seasoned seeker will find subtleties that will help him tie a consistent set of beliefs together. The highly sophisticated seeker will find pathways that can be followed to unlock even greater truths. No matter what their level, all seekers of knowledge and wisdom will gain from reading this book.

But there is a story line: Father and Son. This one idea makes sense of 2000 years of Jewish history. It explains why we have had the Church for the last 2000 years. The entire picture comes together as God paints his own portrait across all of recorded human history, through the medium of his Chosen People.
The portrait that God paints all through the Bible is of his own Son. What is startling is that, as we look closely at this portrait, we see ourselves there. This is what the Father wants to see in all of us. Judaism and Christianity have been nothing less than the step-by-step Training of the Son.
In "Father and Son" you will get an easy-to-read, yet thought-provoking survey of the root idea of the Bible - the one Key that opens up the entire book, a deep look into the heart of the Father and the life of the Trinity. Get hold of this Key, and you will see the Bible in a whole new light.

"This book is perfect food for the heart for all of us who long for a…more
"This book is perfect food for the heart for all of us who long for a richer understanding of the birth of The King!"
Joseph M. Stowell ~ President, Cornerstone University
At the centre of heaven is Christ, lovingly adored as the forever Lord of all. At the centre of Christmas is Christ, frail and cradled in the tender arms of a young mother. How can the two be put together? Heavenly glory and human frailty? That is the real wonder of Christmas. Pleased to Dwell is an energetic biblical introduction to Christmas. It is an invitation to ponder the Incarnation, and a God who was please to dwell with us.
"What unites the Scriptures? A plan of salvation? A pattern of redemption? Promises of abstract blessings? Peter Mead answers with heart-warming clarity: a Person. It's the Person of Christ who is communicated on every page - a Person who longs to be known personally. Pleased to Dwell walks us through the Bible to see its central Character afresh and to rejoice in His desire to draw near. This book will surprise, teach, encourage and gladden you as you encounter Jesus in both Old and New Testaments."
Glen Scrivener ~ Evangelist, Revival Media, Eastbourne, author of 3-2-1.
"A bright and breezy (and therefore very readable) sprint through the Bible's story of Jesus, from Genesis to Revelation. With brief and accessible chapters, it would make an ideal Quiet Times book for the run up to Christmas, as well as a perfect introduction to these foundational truths for a young believer. Thoroughly recommended."
Mark Meynell ~ European Director, Langham Preaching, and author of Cross Examined.
"I have a confession to make... I don't like Christmas! At least by Christmas I mean the tinsel and the trimmings that fill our shops earlier and earlier every year. But in this easily accessible and encouraging book Peter Mead shows us that the true heart of Christmas, the incarnation, is something to rejoice in every day of the year. This book is for life and not just for Christmas!"
Michael Ots ~ Evangelist, author of What Kind of God?
"At the heart of the Christmas story is the earth-shattering truth that Jesus Christ is “Immanuel” – God with us. Peter Mead presents the glorious story of the Incarnation. Pleased to Dwell will help your heart ache with divine beauty and yearn for the life, peace and wonder of knowing God Himself."
Marcus Honeysett, Director of Living Leadership, speaker, author of Finding Joy: A Radical Rediscovery of Grace.
"Through a clear and accessible explanation of the profound miracle of the incarnation, Peter Mead provides not only an illuminating Bible overview but a call to trust the Lord Jesus who is central to God’s purposes. An ideal introduction to a profound theme – and a great Christmas present!"
