At the top of this list, here is an excerpt from Seven-Mile Miracle by Steven Furtick: "In today's world, fear has become epidemic. It takes away our sense of well-being; stresses our mind, body, and soul; and can keep us from doing what we need to do. The good news is that you can enjoy freedom from damaging fear by establishing your heart and mind on the comforting truths of God and learning how to pray in power. Stormie Omartian shows you what to think, say, and pray the moment you sense fear in your heart, and what you can do to combat anxiety."  Loving it so far? Just scroll down and read on!

It's Good Friday. The Son of God is giving up his life. What does he want to say to us in His final hours? What does He tell the people standing at the foot of the cross, to pass down to the ages? He speaks only seven short statements. Words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion. Seven statements that mean everything.

In Seven-Mile Miracle, Pastor Steven Furtick shows us how Jesus's last words offer mile markers for our journey in relationship with God. It's a lifelong journey and it's not always easy. But Jesus is both our guide and our destination as we travel.

Includes questions for reflection and a forty-day reading guide to Jesus's death and resurrection.

Pornography is no longer universally looked down on as bad or unhelpful, but is often seen as something to enjoy without guilt.

Christians, however, work to a different agenda—one set by the Bible's revelation of the true meaning of sex and relationships.

This short book surveys the Christian worldview and applies it to the complex issues surrounding pornography, helping Christians know how to think about pornography with biblical conviction, and compassionate understanding for those influenced by it.

Discover the liberating and satisfying view of sex found in the gospel.

There is something intriguing about the lives of those who have gone before us. We wonder what they thought, how they lived, what they cared about and maybe even what advice they would offer us today.

In this introduction to church history, you'll discover answers to those questions and more as historian Edward Rhodes chronicles church history from the early church up to the recent past. Edward argues that knowing more about our Christian ancestors helps us to make sense of our own story and place in history. Be challenged as you consider how lessons from the past can apply to us today with the help of application points and study questions at the end of each chapter.

Representing the fruit of a lifetime of study, this work from renowned scholar Gordon Fee offers a concise summary of Paul's teaching about Jesus.

In the course of his extensive teaching and writing career in New Testament studies, Fee noticed a considerable gap in the scholarly literature regarding Paul's understanding of the person of Christ. His comprehensive Pauline Christology has been very useful for scholars, but it did not fulfill Fee's ultimate aim of the project--to make the results accessible to any interested reader of Scripture. This concise volume offers a theological synthesis of the exegetical work found in Fee's Pauline Christology, making it more accessible to a wider readership. The book includes a foreword by Cherith Fee Nordling.

In many ways, Easter is supposed to be the high-point of the year for Christians, where we remember the three days that changed history for ever. But for many of us, the day quickly comes and goes without us really feeling any different. Yet for centuries Christians around the world have marked the season of Lent—the forty days leading up to Easter—as a way of reflecting on their need for forgiveness and anticipating Christ's work on the cross.

These daily readings present deep theology in a concise and understandable way, allowing you to soak up the real meaning of Christ's death and resurrection. Each week, you'll read through one or two chapters of John's Gospel. The Sunday reading provides an introduction to the passage as a whole, while the rest of the week's reflections work through it in smaller sections. A carefully selected prayer—drawn from the rich work of writers throughout church history—is included each day.

So this Lent, prepare your heart with 47 days of short and stirring reflections from the Gospel of John.

The loss or disaffiliation of young adults is a much-discussed topic in the church today. Many faith-formation programs focus on keeping the young, believing the youthful spirit will save the church. But do these programs have more to do with an obsession with youthfulness than with helping young people encounter the living God?

Questioning the search for new or improved faith-formation programs, leading practical theologian Andrew Root offers an alternative take on the issue of youth drifting away from the church and articulates how faith can be formed in our secular age. He offers a theology of faith constructed from a rich cultural conversation, providing a deeper understanding of the phenomena of the "nones" and "moralistic therapeutic deism."

Root helps readers understand why forming faith is so hard in our context and shows that what we have lost is not the ability to keep people connected to our churches but an imagination for how and where God could be present in their lives. He considers what faith is and what steps we can take to move into it, exploring a Pauline concept of faith as encounter with divine action. This is the first book in what will be a three-volume set in which Root explores ministry in a secular age.

Do everything for the love of God.
Bring your faults to Him, and accept His forgiveness.
In unbroken communion, praise and worship Him.
Love God, and be happy in Him.

While serving in the Thirty Years' War in central Europe during the 1600s, Nicholas Herman suffered a severe wound that crippled him for life. But as he remembered how God restored leaves to barren trees from one season to another, he found hope that God would also restore him. Eventually, he moved to Paris and joined the Discalced Carmelite Priory, where he was given the religious name of "Brother Lawrence."

Throughout his life, Brother Lawrence experienced many challenges, but along the way he recognized that God was with him ... and he took full advantage of being in the Lord's presence. Instead of complaining about his situations, he chose to focus his heart and mind on thoughts of God's love, majesty, and grace. Brother Lawrence spent time with God in an intimate way that allowed him to experience the fullness of joy and peace.

This special edition of the classic book The Practice of the Presence of God offers fresh perspectives on knowing and loving God through the faith journey of Brother Lawrence. In addition to maintaining the classic text, this modern version also includes a 40-day devotional to guide you through the content.

From the stories of Brother Lawrence's struggles, the Scriptures that inspired him, and the humble words of wisdom he spoke, you'll see the benefits of constant engagement with the Lord. Open this book and discover how you can faithfully live in God's presence, grow deeper in your love for Him, and experience His joy and peace through every season of life.
