About us

Wolverhampton has had a Christian Ministry present in the form of a bookshop for 45 years. After the closure of the original bookshop in January 2017, Way, Truth and Life was created as a way to continue the work in the community. 

A new charity was formed and the Bible Bookshop came to life, embracing the ideals of the original bookshop to offer continued support for local churches, missions and Christians in the local area.

our purpose

The purpose of our organisation, Way, Truth and Life Ministries, is to make Christian literature and resources available to both people and organisations; supporting and encouraging other Christian ministries and missions while promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is achieved through the Way, Truth & Life Bible Bookshop, which is run as a non-profit organisation.

Through the bookshop, we are able to support churches and local ministries in their outreach work, by offering discounts in order to provide them with affordable resources.

Our wider organisation supports and encourages other Christian ministries and missions both pastorally, through prayer, edification and advertising, as well as financially where possible, gifting profit to the missions and ministries chosen by the trustees of the charity at relevant periods in the year.

We also promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ by providing a high-street presence that is accessible to all. We promote community, family and love as well as support, advice and education regarding the Christian faith in an informal and friendly setting.

We fulfil the Great Commission given to us by Jesus in the Bible (Matthew 28:16-20) by giving the message of the Gospel to those we serve. We also abide by the Greatest Commandments (Matthew 22:36-40) which are to love God and love one another.

These commandments of love are the basis for our faith and we fulfil these by sharing the love that we are given by God with those we have the privilege to serve, regardless of ethnicity, religion and status.

    Holy Fire – R.T. Kendall

    The Holy Spirit... Greater than your theology, bigger than denominations, beyond all we can imagine, God’s gift to the church and to you.

    Debate about the Holy Spirit has been around for a long time. In Holy Fire, best-selling author and respected theologian R T Kendall sets the record straight about the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives and in the life of the church.

    If you want to increase your knowledge of this most misunderstood member of the Trinity, or if you long to experience His presence in your life in a deeper way than ever before, this book is for you.

    Are you charismatic? He is bigger than your signs-and-wonders events. Are you Reformed? He will not be limited by your theology. As Jesus said of the Holy Spirit, “He blows where He will.”

    The Gifts of The Spirit – Derek Prince

    The nine gifts of the Holy Spirit listed in 1 Corinthians 12 are demonstrations of God’s matchless grace at work in the world, as well as evidence of His powerful presence in the midst of His church.

    They are manifestations of the sovereignty and provision of God that people can actually see, hear, and experience with their senses. And they testify to the crucial truth that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Saviour of the world.

    All Christians can receive and exercise these gifts of the Holy Spirit. Acclaimed Bible teacher Derek Prince shows how to discover and live in the spiritual gifts God has given you, so you may…

    • Experience God’s power personally.
    • Demonstrate distinct manifestations of the Spirit in your life.
    • Increase your effectiveness in the body of Christ.
    • Become a conduit of God’s grace.
    • Defeat satanic powers.
    • Do miracles in the name of Jesus.
    • Strengthen and encourage your fellow believers.
    • Live in God’s will.
    • Bring deliverance, healing, and hope to the world.

    Mud, Sweat & Tears – Bear Grylls

    Bear Grylls is a man who has always sought the ultimate in adventure.

    Growing up on the Isle of Wight, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age.

    As a teenager he found identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts, which led the young adventurer to the foothills of the mighty Himalaya and a grandmaster's karate training camp in Japan. On returning home, he embarked upon the notoriously gruelling selection course for the British Special Forces to join 21 SAS - a journey that was to push him to the very limits of physical and mental endurance.

    Then, in a horrific free-fall parachuting accident, Bear broke his back in three places. It was touch and go whether he would ever walk again. However, only eighteen months later Bear became one of the youngest ever climbers to scale Everest, aged only twenty-three. But this was just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures...

    Mere Christianity – C.S. Lewis

    2012 marked the 60th Anniversary of the publication of C.S. Lewis's classic, Mere Christianity. Having sold over half a million copies in the UK alone, his overview of Christianity has been imitated many time, but never bettered. 

    The book is compiled of the legendary radio talks which he gave during the war years. Mere Christianity brings together Lewis's legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks in which he set out simply to 'explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times.' Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, C.S. Lewis provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith.

    A Lineage of Grace – Francine Rivers

    Francine Rivers, author of the Christian modern classic, ‘Redeeming Love’ brings you an authentic and sensitive re-enlivening of 5 Bible women and their powerful, faith driven stories. ‘A Lineage of Grace’ is a compilation of five books telling the stories of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba and Mary and their devotion to the people and the God they loved.

    Throughout her writing, Francine Rivers uses her imagination, skill and heartfelt admiration for her Biblical heroines to make the Bible accounts more understandable, relevant, accessible and interesting to women.

    Francine invites you personally into the world of each of the five women as they face the challenges and take personal risks to fulfil their calling from God. Woven into the story of each woman, as they play their own in role, is a greater story - the story of the salvation of the world and the lineage of Jesus Christ.
