New Creation Book
Derek Burton’s second book, ‘NEW CREATION’, is to be published on his birthday, 28th June. It has a new design, more messages, more poems and many coloured images. It will be available from numerous retailers.
Here is one of five reviews printed on the back cover –
“A great read. This book covers a very wide range of historic and contemporary issues. It does not shy away from controversy, and addresses topics which we don’t often face up to. Statements are backed up with a variety of quotations from different sources. These chime with real experience. A very clear case for a Christian faith which is contemporary and relates to today’s experience, whilst being founded on a bedrock of solid Scriptural foundations. I hope it reaches a wide and receptive audience.”
Peter Howitt, Surrey
A reminder that Derek's first book, "A Light to my Path" is already available on Amazon here >.
