Chosen : Genesis Through Deuteronomy
It is a story of beautiful and troubled beginnings. In its opening pages the story finds Adam and Eve swept into a dazzling world of vibrancy and energy. In awe, they are captivated by the tender love of Divinity walking and talking with them. But keep flipping the pages, and the story turns darker, more complicated. There is trouble: rebellion and deceit, battles and heartache. But through it all there is something greater, something beautiful. In Chosen Jack J. Blanco creates a harmonious look at the story of Genesis through Deuteronomy. You’ll read the great stories of Noah building an ark, Abraham believing an impossible promise, Joseph experiencing misery and greatness, and Moses leading the Israelites through years of manna and sand. Each of the patriarchs’ stories combine to tell us one great story: the story of God’s amazing grace.

John Chrysostom : The Preacher In The Emperor’s Court$11.99Add to cart
There was something about John Chrysostom and the words he spoke that lit up his world.
He was an important leader of the early church, known so much for his preaching and public speaking that he was given the nickname Golden Mouth. He spoke his mind and followed his convictions. He refused to host the lavish social gatherings that his predecessors had laid on. This meant that John Chrysostom really annoyed the wealthy citizens of Constantinople. He spoke out against how many influential Christians cared little for the poor.
“It is madness to fill your cupboards with clothing while other human beings stand naked and trembling with the cold so that they can hardly hold themselves upright.”
It didn’t matter if you were rich or poor John spoke the truth – emphatically. Even the empress fell under his criticism which eventually led to his exile and death.
