    The Republic of Indonesia is a vast archipelago presenting a kaleidoscope of sights for travellers. The range of activities available is equally sparkling with diving, surfing and sunbathing in and beside the coastal waters, and mountain climbing, trekking and paragliding on and over the land. Java is the home of the Jakarta, the bustling capital city, which has a wealth of cultural attractions, such as the still-operational port of Old Batavia. Elsewhere on Java are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Borobudur and Prambanan Temples. A chain of volcanoes forms the backbone of the island offering many opportunities for the adventurous. Bali and Lombok are justly renowned for their dive sites and their beautiful beaches. These are also a feature of Sulawesi and Manado whose interiors are thick with rainforests abundant with wildlife. Kalimantan on Borneo is a big draw for ecotourists, especially the Orang-utan sanctuary. Sumatra is dramatically picturesque: the lakes, mountains and forests offer a wide diversity of wildlife to be explored. Each of these distinctive and beautiful islands is explored in Enchanting Indonesia, which introduces all of the must-see sights, set within the context of the country's fascinating cultural diversity.

  • Rewire Your Heart

    David Bowden

    Product Code: BTBHR
    Paperback
    Bible teacher and acclaimed spoken-word artist David Bowden reveals the secret to winning the battle with sin. Many Christians believe the only way to fight sin is to grit our teeth, strengthen our resolve, and rise above the onslaught of temptation. But in reality, we have a far better weapon in our struggle with sin than the will-power mantras associated with diet and exercise. This weapon is not saying "no" to sin but saying "yes" to God. In Rewire Your Heart, David Bowden helps us discover God's plan to overcoming sin by rewiring our desires with the Gospel. When we invite the Holy Spirit to transform our underlying affections with the good news of Jesus, we begin to break free from the patterns of sin, guilt, and determination, and discover the richer fulfillment found in joyfully obeying God's commands.
