Abiding Dependence : Living Moment-by-Moment In The Love Of God$21.49Add to cart
Our humanity is meant to be powered by the Breath of God.
You want to grow more deeply in your faith–to know in your bones the love the Father has for you. You want to know that even when life doesn’t seem to be going as it should, God is with you. You need courage for today. Strength and hope for tomorrow. Musician and artist Ron Block desires the same–for you and for himself.
To become who we’re meant to be requires a deeper experience of God Himself. Abiding Dependence shares forty days of meditations–a deep plunge into the beauty and richness of the Gospels. Block takes the reader through contemplations of Jesus as Son of God, Son of Man, Tempted Son of Man, Compassionate High Priest, Man of Courage, Reconciler, and more. The reader learns to live and breathe in the atmosphere of God’s abiding love.
Christians often try to add flesh-fueled effort to buttress their works and walk with God. Can you relate? This gives rise to all sorts of mistaken ideas about God and our relationship with him. Block helps us live and rest in Jesus. Seeing and knowing His love awakens our trust. Faith lights hope. And we all need a stirring of hope–one that does not disappoint. Block stirs in Christians a hope not just for a future someday but for this day, this hour, this very moment. Join Block on a soul strengthening forty days of Abiding Dependence!
You Are The Beloved$27.99Add to cart
Seven million copies of his books in print! Now with a new package and new cover design, this daily devotional from the bestselling author of such spiritual classics as The Return of the Prodigal Son and The Wounded Healer offers deep insights into human experience, intimacy, brokenness, and mercy.
Dutch-born Catholic priest and beloved author Henri J. Nouwen devoted much of his later ministry to emphasizing the singular concept of our identity as the Beloved of God. In an interview, he said that he believed the central moment in Jesus’s public ministry to be his baptism in the Jordan, when Jesus heard the affirmation, “You are my beloved son on whom my favor rests.” “That is the core experience of Jesus,” Nouwen writes. “He is reminded in a deep, deep way of who he is. . . . I think his whole life is continually claiming that identity in the midst of everything.”
You Are the Beloved is a daily devotional intended to empower readers to claim this truth in their own lives. Featuring the best of Nouwen’s writing from previously published works, this devotional propels the canon forward as it draws on this rich literature in new and compelling ways. It will appeal to readers already familiar with Nouwen’s work as well as new readers looking for a devotional to guide them into a deeper awareness of their identity in Jesus.

In A Boat In The Middle Of A Lake
$23.99$8.99Add to cart
Patrick and Ruth Schwenk, founders of the popular blogs For the Family and The Better Mom, as well as the podcast Rootlike Faith, reveal the unshakeable hope God offers in our most difficult trials.
At some point, we all find ourselves, like the disciples in Mark 4, in a boat in the middle of a lake. For some of us, this is the loss of a loved one. For others, a disability or financial insecurity. For Patrick and Ruth Schwenk, it was Patrick’s cancer diagnosis at age forty-three. In this powerful new book, the Schwenks share their personal stories of loss and tragedy, along with strong Bible teaching and the experiences of nearly twenty years in pastoral ministry, to show that one of the greatest ways God transforms us is through trials–through difficult seasons of loss, disappointment, weakness, and suffering. Because while we live in a culture that values strength, control, and comfort, God does his greatest work in us through our pain. It’s when we’re weak that God has us where he can work with us. But that is never where he leaves us. It’s through the hurt that we come to fully know the hope that is ours in Christ.
What Made Jesus Mad
$23.99$11.99Add to cart
Tim Harlow, senior pastor of Parkview Christian Church, helps Christians rediscover the passionate savior of the Bible who is still relevant today.
For years Christians have asked, “What would Jesus do?” But what if we asked a better, more illuminating question: “What made Jesus mad?”
As much as we love a gentle, sweet image of Jesus, that picture isn’t complete. Jesus got deeply angry at times. That shouldn’t surprise us – but who he was mad at, and why, might. Jesus was most angry with people whose attitudes got in the way of his purpose: to seek and to save the lost, to unite us with God’s amazing love. So, when he saw hypocrisy, greed, judging, and lack of mercy coming from the hearts of people who supposedly followed God and as a result pushed people away from him, Jesus went into orbit. Do we feel the same way?
Whatever the problem – tolerating injustice, shunning sinners, or ignoring the least among us – What Made Jesus Mad? opens our eyes to the issues that most angered Jesus and that should anger Christians as we align our hearts with his and get back to actually following the Savior.
This Thing Called Christianity
$15.99$6.99Add to cart
Bestselling author and speaker Jefferson Bethke tears back the worn canvas of religiosity, lets an unsalvageable, phony frame of distractions fall away, and unfolds for the reader the breathtaking mystery, meaning, worth, and value of the Christian faith.
Based on his bestselling book It’s Not What You Think, Jefferson Bethke takes you on a journey from the creation of the universe in Genesis to the great feast of celebration in Revelation. Reexamining Christianity from the very beginning as revealed in the Bible, Bethke discovers a story far more beautiful and compelling than the one most Christians are telling today. Instead of rescuing us from the world, God wants us to be part of his plan to restore the world. The story of Christianity is, therefore, about becoming more alive and more fully human by following the one human who was also God in flesh, Jesus.

Psychologist and relationship expert Dr. Les Parrott provides a revolutionary path to success in the ultimate human challenge: truly loving other people. Let’s be honest.

In Love Like Jesus, Dr. Parrott takes the latest findings from sociology and psychology and blends them with biblical understanding to reveal practical and often counter-intuitive ways of loving like never before.

The result will be deeply fulfilling and meaningful connections with nearly anyone you encounter–but especially in the relationships that matter most.

To Hell With The Hustle$21.99Add to cart
New York Times bestselling author Jefferson Bethke delivers a call to resist our cultural worship of connectivity and achievement before we lose the essentials that make us distinctly and deeply human.
Our culture makes constant demands of us. Do more. Accomplish more. Buy more. Post more. Tweet more. And in following those demands, we have indeed become more–more anxious, more tired, more hurt, more depressed, more frantic. What we are doing isn’t working because, Jefferson Bethke argues, we have forgotten the fundamentals that make us human, the things that anchor our lives, providing us with roots and meaning.
In this highly anticipated new book, Jefferson Bethke delivers a wake-up call to resist our culture and embrace the slowness of Jesus. To stop doing and start becoming by proactively setting up boundaries in our lives and cultivating disciplines within them. He shows his readers how to find landmarks, anchors, and rhythms that provide depth and meaning and that push back against the demands of contemporary life. And he reveals that what the world teaches us to avoid at all costs–things such as silence, obscurity, solitude, and vulnerability–are the very things that can give us the meaning, depth, order, and the richness we are truly looking for.

Insecure : Fighting Our Lesser Fears With A Greater One$13.39Add to cart
It’s there when you look in the mirror. You’ll find it roaming the halls of your school or workplace. It tucks you in at night and greets you as you roll out of bed. You’ll read it in text messages & tweets. See it on Facebook and Instagram. It’s in our conversations and is always rattling around in our minds.
What is it? Insecurity.
Insecurity is something all humans struggle with. Young and old, male and female, across the globe – insecurity has no boundaries. While it is a commonality among humanity, it doesn’t mean it’s something you have to live with.
Insecurity is painful for many, but there is a greater fear to drown out this lesser one. Scripture tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. It is in this greater fear, that we learn how to grow, live, and, possibly defeat, our insecurity.
