In Liking Jesus, a timely and life-changing book, New York Times bestselling author and pastor of Life.Church Craig Groeschel helps put Christ first again in today's maxed out, selfie-centered world.

The more you compare, the less satisfied you are. The more we interact online, the more we crave intimacy. The more filtered our lives become, the harder it is to be real.

It's time to refresh and rediscover what it means to be "like Jesus" and find true authenticity, a healthy self-image, and compassion for others in an age when we relate to each other so differently than ever before. Groeschel taps into some of the most leading-edge studies on the effects of social media on our emotions and friendships. He offers real-life examples of how we struggle with screens and likes, how these things mask our struggles with who we really are, and how we can reclaim a Christ-centered life.

Packed with helpful topics like the "10 Commandments of Using Social Media to Strengthen Your Faith" and "Creating Safeguards for Your Digital Devices," readers from ages sixteen to sixty will find Liking Jesus to be just the guide to bring balance and real-world engagement to everyday life.

Discipleship occurs when someone answers the call to learn from Jesus how to live his or her life—as though Jesus were living it. The end result is that the disciple becomes the kind of person who naturally does what Jesus did.

How the church understands salvation and the gospel is the key to recovering a biblical theology of discipleship. Our doctrines of grace and salvation, in some cases, actually prevent us from creating an expectation that we are to be disciples of Jesus. A person can profess to be a Christian and yet still live under the impression that they don't need to actually follow Jesus. Being a follower is seen as an optional add-on, not a requirement. It is a choice, not a demand. Being a Christian today has no connection with the biblical idea that we are formed into the image of Christ.

In this ground-breaking new book, pastor and author Bill Hull shows why our existing models of evangelism and discipleship fail to actually produce followers of Jesus. He looks at the importance of recovering a robust view of the gospel and taking seriously the connection between conversion—answering the call to follow Jesus—and discipleship—living like the one we claim to follow.

Now in Paperback!

True discipleship challenges us to radically redefine success in ministry — not by "how many", but rather by "what kind" of disciples we have made — for the mandate (our walk with God) must precede the mission (our work for God). In this insightful book, Edmund Chan sounds the clarion call to return the Church to her disciplemaking roots — of reproducing disciples of "a certain kind"!


"Edmund Chan is a passionate communicator and visionary leader who winsomely models what he proclaims. His impact on my own life has been so enriching."
— Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker

"Edmund Chan is a seasoned disciplemaking pastor whose efforts have been multiplied throughout the world."
— Dr. Bill Hull, author of The Complete Book of Discipleship, and other volumes

"Edmund Chan is one of the most prominent figures around the world that God is using to provide leadership for a renewed emphasis on disciplemaking,"
— Dr. Michael J. Wilkins, author of Following the Master: A Biblical Theology of Discipleship; Dean of Faculty, Talbot School of Theology

Based on a true story


The continuing true story of Eric Liddell's glorious life after winning Olympic gold in the 1924 Paris Olympics. Liddell (JOSEPH FIENNES) has returned to China, where he was born to missionary parents, modestly avoiding celebrity in order to teach local schoolchildren.

In 1937, the Japanese invade China at the outset of WWll. Liddell with his friend Xu Niu (SHAWN DOU), a street smart resistance fighter, recognize the increasing danger so Liddell sends his wife, Florence (ELIZABETH ARENDS) and their two daughters to safety in Canada. Duty-bound, Liddell stays to minister to the civilian victims. Liddell and other foreign nationals are taken as prisoners and placed in one of the many Japanese internment camps where they are forced to endure for two years.

Before the Japanese surrender, Liddell succumbs to a brain tumor. Yet his message of hope became immortal. Eric Liddell's legacy continues to this day as he remains admired as a champion for life.

Michael W. Smith launches Nurturing Steps™, a new infant and toddler series with a simple mission to provide parents and grandparents with music and books to enliven a young child's journey with hope and faith through song and storytelling. "One of the greatest joys of my life is being a parent and a grandparent," says Michael, the father of five, who is called "G-Daddy" by his 14 grandkids. "I want to serve the next generation well. That's why I created Nurturing Steps, to provide stories and songs that will help shape the faith of our newest generation."

For Lullaby, Michael meaningfully arranges his worldwide hits like "Agnus Dei" and "Friends" along with new ballads "No More Crying," "Sleep Tight" and more, and leads an audio bedtime drama for young children with the Nighty Night characters. The Nighty Nights also join Michael as his band with Bear on guitar, Lamby on keys and Sleepy Puppy on upright bass. In Nighty Night and Good Night, members of the Nighty Night band are further called upon to help their friend, Ben, as he tries to fall asleep. After bedtime prayers and some going-to-sleep rituals are done, a lullaby sung by the band of animals including Bear, Sleepy Puppy and Lamby finally does the trick.
