In the April/May 2015 issue of Free:

RESCUED!

All relationships matter − but none more than our relationship with God. In the first of a new series of Bible studies based on the book of Exodus, CALUM ‘HONDA’ MACMILLAN explains God’s rescue plan for the captive Israelites, and how we can gain real freedom, too.

PLEASE, DON’T SAY THAT!

What’s the language like at school? How do your friends speak? Do you ever feel uncomfortable around swearing – or do you just think that’s how everybody talks and it doesn't mean anything? JAMES MACIVER wants us to think carefully about the importance of having a clean mouth.

THE NOTHING DAY

Have you ever watched a film and − at the moment it seems like the hero will be defeated − thought, it’s okay, I know they’ll survive to the end, and therefore missed out on the emotional journey of the movie? PAULA WHITE feels we sometimes view Easter that way; we know that God wins in the end − and never think of what it must have felt like not to know that. But what would life be like if we thought the Easter story ended on Easter Saturday …? What if that was all there was?

ON THE ROAD

CHRIS NICOLSON meets up with the crew of Challenger 4 − and fulfils a long-held ambition as she climbs aboard the customised PWAMM (People with a Mission Ministries) bus that takes multimedia Gospel presentations round Scotland.

LIVING IN ISTANBUL (OR: DO YOU GO TO SCHOOL ON A CAMEL?)

In the latest of Free’s occasional articles about living in unusual places, SARAH VAN RENSBURG tells us what it’s like growing up in Istanbul, with 17 million neighbours.

THE DEAL WITH DRUGS - Part 2

When you see someone who uses drugs, what do you feel? Pity? Concern? Or contempt? ML STONE challenges some commonly-held assumptions about drugs and the people who use them.

FOOTBALL SHORTS

DAVID GRAY looks at footballers with instantly recognisable names − and compares them with that name above all others.
