The Case For Grace: A Journalist Explores The Evidence Of Transformed Lives

  The Case For Grace, 9780310336181, Lee Strobel

Author :

Lee Strobel

Category : Apologetics

Format : Softcover

Special Offer Price :
$17.60* 20% Discount!

Usual Price : $22.00

The Case for a Creator explored the scientific evidence for God;

The Case for Christ investigated the historical evidence for Jesus;

The Case for Faith responded to eight major objections about Christianity;

The Case for The Real Jesus refuted the current challenges to the Bible and Christ …

Now, in The Case for Grace, Lee Strobel crafts a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on God’s transforming work in the lives of men and women today.

Writing with unusual candor, Lee draws upon his own journey from atheism to Christianity to explore the depth and breadth of God’s redeeming love for spiritually wayward people. He travels thousands of miles to capture the inspiring stories of everyday people whose values have been radically changed and who have discovered the “how” and “why” behind God’s amazing grace. You’ll encounter racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose. You’ll meet once-bitter people who have received God’s power to forgive those who have harmed them—and, equally amazing, people mired in guilt who have discovered that they can even forgive themselves.

Through it all, you will be encouraged as you see how God’s grace can revolutionize your eternity and relationships… starting today.

Donald Miller built a career emphasizing the funny and smart bits of his personality. But when “playing a role” turned into an identity crisis, he found it impossible to find true intimacy. Headed toward a life of loneliness and isolation, Don met a few guides who taught him the only way to connect with others was to be completely honest about who he really was. But in an age when we all act as our own publicity agents, would he be willing to impress fewer people to honestly connect with more? The results are Scary Close.

If God Is Good: Faith In The Midst Of Suffering & Evil

Every one of us will experience suffering. You may be in such a time now. We see the presence of evil in the headlines every day.   

It all raises questions about God—Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? How can there be a God if suffering and evil exist? 

Atheists such as Richard Dawkins and even former believers like Bart Ehrman answer the question simply: The existence of suffering and evil proves there is no God. 

But in this illuminating book, best-selling author Randy Alcorn challenges the logic of disbelief, and brings a fresh, hopeful, and thoroughly biblical insight to the issues these important questions raise. 

Alcorn offers insights from his conversations with men and women whose lives have been torn apart by suffering, and yet whose faith in God burns brighter than ever. He reveals the big picture of who God is and what God is doing in the world—now and forever. And he shows the beauty of God’s sovereignty—how it ultimately triumphs over suffering and evil in our lives and the world around us.

Dig Deeper Into The Gospels, 9781783591992, Andrew Sach, Tim Hiorns  

Title :

Dig Deeper Into The Gospels: Coming Face To Face With Jesus In Mark

Author : Andrew Sach / Tim Hiorns

Category : NT Commentary

Format : Softcover

Price :

$20.00*

* Price Before Member's Discount

Sometimes we think of the Gospels as the “easy” bits of the Bible. Anyone who has been through Sunday School can tell you that Jesus walked on water, fed the 5,000 and told a parable about a sower. Is there really much more to it than that?

The conviction of the Dig Deeper books is that God wants us to work hard at reading the Bible in order to discover its true meaning, hence the use of 'tools' to dig and dig again. It's an interactive and enjoyable process. Indeed, the authors want to make finding Bible treasure a real possibility for everyone. And to do so with receptive hearts, listening to what the Holy Spirit is saying.

Using Mark as a worked example, Andrew and Tim follow 'the most important things that have ever happened in the history of the world'. They help us see "a diagnosis of the human condition more perceptive than that offered by any physician, politician, philosopher or psychiatrist". They point to a solution that touches in the same moment both the horrors of hell and the glory of heaven. We come face to face with the Jesus of the Bible and see how to follow him in a way that utterly transforms our lives.

I feel as if I am disappearing into a little more each day. I am so angry inside that I am afraid of myself. I feel so alone.” How did this happen? What brought her to her knees?

Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ met face-to-face with people just like you. Broken, imperfect, sometimes fearful and without hope. The Day I Met Jesus is a beautifully crafted narrative that chronicles the remarkable encounters of five women in the Gospels who were desperate to find wholeness, security, and purpose. Like all of us, these women struggled with the regrets of their pasts, the stresses of their presents, and the worries of their tomorrows.

Join Frank Viola and Mary DeMuth on a fascinating journey back in time as they retell the dramatic accounts of five women who met Jesus. Each narrative is told from each woman's unique perspective, yet tightly grounded in the Gospel accounts and faithful to first-century history. Elegantly written and profoundly stirring, this book blends creative narrative with uncommon insight, spiritual depth, and practical application.

If you are someone who seeks a renewal of hope, faith, and love, The Day I Met Jesus will make your Bible come to life and usher you into a fresh encounter with your Lord.

The Plausibility Problem: The Church & Same-Sex Attraction

  The Plausibility Problem, 9781783592067, Ed Shaw

Authors :

Ed Shaw

Category : Sexuality

Format : Softcover

Price :

$18.00*

* Price Before Member's Discount

It's all very well to say that the Bible is clear when it talks about homosexuality. But is it realistic? Isn't it unrealistic and unfair to those who struggle with this issue? Doesn't it condemn them to loneliness, a lack of fulfilment and the loss of basic human satisfactions like sex and marriage? Is what the church teaches a plausible way of life?

Ed Shaw experiences same-sex attraction, and yet he is committed to what the Bible says and what the church has always taught about marriage and sex. In this honest book, he shares his pain in dealing with these issues - but, at the same time, shows us that obedience to Jesus is ultimately the only way to experience life to the full.

He shows that the Bible's teaching seems unreasonable not because of its difficulties, but because of missteps that the church has often taken in its understanding of the Christian life. We have been shaped by the world around us, and urgently need to re-examine the values that drive our discipleship. Only by doing this in the light of the Bible, can we make sense of its call on the lives of those who are attracted to their own sex.

We have so often made Jesus' way sound like a bad deal. Only by reclaiming the reality of gospel discipleship, can we truly see and appreciate that life in Christ is the best way for any human life to be lived - whomever we are attracted to.

The Showstopper. The Main Event. The Icon.

Decorated WWE superstar Shawn Michaels has been called a lot of names. But none, perhaps, as controversial as “Christian.”

In Wrestling For My Life, Michaels shares from his heart about the highs and lows of his life inside the WWE, taking us on his journey from the heights of stardom to the depths of his commitment to Christ.

Now retired after 25 years in the ring and looking back on his career and his life of faith, Michaels offers fascinating perspectives on what it means to make tough decisions, how to follow God when it’s not easy, and how trying to be a good person can be even harder than breaking a ladder over a competitor’s head.

Full of entertaining behind-the-scene stories and inspirational insights, Michaels reveals what it is like to be a man of faith in a wrestling world that often has no basis in reality. You will experience an intimate look into his career and the profound things he’s learned from hunting, family, and faith – this is a no-holds barred, hope-filled book for every wrestling fan, outdoorsman, and fellow believer.
