About the bookshop
As the ministry at Jivannadi grew, the Good News Bookshop slowly developed too.
From the beginning it was felt that it’s more important rather to have fewer, but good books, than more, but doubtful ones.
We emphasise that the Bible is the Book of books. It is the Word of God to us and contains all the words we’ll ever need to progressively come to know and serve the Lord Jesus Christ fruitfully.
The bookshop operates on a non-profit basis and any money that comes in is ploughed back into it.
Not all our books are new, which influences the amount we indicate as a suggested donation for the ones listed at this site.
Due to logistical reasons we only accept orders from within the Republic of South Africa.
Not all the books in stock are listed here. We took the liberty to include some of the books that we highly recommend, even though they may be out of stock, with the hope that it may be a help to some. They are indicated with **.


"It is not the reading of many books which is necessary to make a man wise or good, but the well reading of a few, could he be sure to have the best"

"To be broken is the beginning of Revival".

back to Revival & Repentance Humility : the Beauty of Holiness by Andrew Murray
This precious little book was written in the spirit of true revival and from a real relationship with God. In it we find the key and the secret of life, revival, and our relationship with God. Consider some of the statements from it : "His humility is our salvation. His salvation is our humility"; "it is not sin that humbles most, but grace"; "here is the path to the higher life. Down, lower down!"; "It is only by the indwelling of Christ in His divine humility that we become truly humble"; "humility towards men will be the only sufficient proof that our humility before God is real"; "Humility is the bloom and the beauty of holiness"; "Humility must lead us to die to self"; "Only humility leads to perfect death; Only death perfects humility"; "The highest lesson a believer has to learn is humility"; "Pride must die in you, or nothing of heaven can live in you", etc. This book can help us (through God) to pray, "Lord Jesus! May our Holiness be perfect Humility! Let Thy perfect Humility be our Holiness!"

back to Revival & Repentance Repentance : The Joy-filled Life by Basilea Schlink
This book shows how John the Baptist, Simon Peter (on the day of Pentecost), Jesus himself (when he started to preach and when he gave his message to the seven churches as recorded in the book of Revelation) all proclaimed: "Repent!". The author explains what repentance is, the need for repentance, motives stimulating towards repentance, its priority in every person’s life, it’s effects (on a personal and national level), as well as (very importantly) the way to repentance and the main obstacles in coming back to God in repentance. She writes that an ongoing repentance is the hallmark of a Christian and the basis for true joy.

back to Revival & Repentance We would see Jesus by Roy Hession
In the preface the author writes : "This is a book that seeks to be simply about the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. (It) is somewhat of an amplification of ‘The Calvary Road’. Seeing Him we are convicted of sin, broken, cleansed, filled with the Spirit, set free from bondage, and revived. Each aspect of Christian experience is made real in us just by seeing Him. He is both the Blessing we seek and the easily accessible Way to that blessing." Some of the chapters deal with what is means to see Jesus as the purpose of life, as all we need, as the Truth, as the Door, as the Way, as the End, and seeing Him for others. This book reveals Jesus in a most beautiful and reviving way.

back to Revival & Repentance "When I saw Him": where revival begins by Roy Hession
This book was also born out of the East-African revival in the 20th century. The author says, "In the following pages I invite the reader to look with me at four men of old (in one of the cases in question, a group of men) who saw the Lord, and at the effects the visions had on them. I do so because the particular revelations of the Lord they had are the same revelations of Him we need, and when we have them they will have the same effect on us as they had on them."

back to Revival & Repentance The Christian’s Victory : how to overcome sin by Basilea Schlink
How can we overcome sin? Asked this question, the author sets about prescribing Biblical "spiritual medicine", dealing one by one with 45 different sins which can mar the Christian’s life, helping us to recognise them in ourselves, and pointing out the costly remedy. The original title of the book speaks for itself : "You will never be the same"! She speaks clearly about sin in Christians, the importance of hating sin, confessing sin (bringing it into the light), and the way to victory over it. The book is very practical, truthful, straightforward and helpful.

back to Revival & Repentance Reaching your World for Christ , or "The State of the Church" by Andrew Murray
This is one of the most important books that Andrew Murray wrote. He personally read it repeatedly, even to his old age. It deals with the state of the church, and therefore with the spiritual state of each Christian. He shows how the state of the home church determines the state of the mission church, and how the state of the church is determined by the state of the members (the Christians). He makes an urgent heartfelt plea that we’ll not say "peace, peace" when there’s no peace, that we’ll see our lack of spiritual power, the lack of the supernatural power of God in our lives and churches, the lack of true conversions, the lack of prayer, the lack of holiness, the lack of revival, and the resultant slack obedience to "go and make disciples of all the nations". He also points out the remedy, through the valley of decision, through conviction, contrition, confession, and consecration, and through prayer and the supernatural working of the Holy Spirit of God - filling his children to overflowing.

back to Revival & Repentance The Holy War by John Bunyan
Few books have shown me Christ as this one. Written by the author of "The Pilgrim’s Progress", it shows in allegorical way, the battle that rages for the town of Mansoul. El Shaddai built this town (of man’s soul) for him and his Son, Emmanuel. They put a wall around the city that can be entered only through one of the sense-gates (eye-gate, ear-gate, etc, as the gates are opened from within. The heart-castle in the centre of the town was for them to inhabit, to the benefit or the inhabitants and the glory of El Shaddai. Diabolus and his evil hordes seek though to capture the city, break down El Shaddai’s image and kingdom, enslave the inhabitants and establish their reign of darkness. Many important principles of spiritual warfare and repentance and godly living are vividly portrayed.

Zac Poonen turns the light of Scripture on to cherished notions of the Christian life. He shows that there is only one way to be a Christian as God intends : to die to self, to be broken, to be empty, and to long for God to live in us in his fullness. Nothing must take the place of God in our lives not even his own gifts to us. In this book he describes the corruption of the self-life, the pathway to the Christ-life (as being broken and emptied), and the beauty of the Christ-life.

He describes the wounded heart of man, the father heart of God, the broken heart of God, the waiting loving Father, why and how God heals wounded hearts, the role of fathers in the Lord, and more.

back to Christian Living Approved unto God, including Facing Reality by Oswald Chambers
Christian workers need to be disciplined disciples. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed”(2 Tim 2:15), makes a big demand upon a worker for God, and these God-given messages help us to meet that Divine requirement. One clear note in them is “that the servant of God has to go through the experience of things before he is allowed to go through a study of them”. Here there is as much insistence upon spiritual fitness as right mentality, and upon intellectual discipline as upon spiritual well-being. The worker for God is a unity, spirit, soul and body, and needs to be brought by God’s grace and by personal choice and concentration into a harmoniously working whole.
