Take ninety days and walk through the pages of the Bible with the definitive voice today in Christian spirituality. Eugene Peterson provides brief commentary and challenging thoughts to stir the biblical imagination and encourage even the weary believer.

Each devotional sheds light on one of two main themes: your life and God's nature, and is followed by a pause of sorts — sometimes a question, sometimes a reflection. Readers can use the words there to form their own prayer for the day - certainly not as an ending point, but rather as a beginning for the arrivals that await them.

We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God — like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it.
—Bishop Michael B. Curry

This book offers Bishop Curry's signature wisdom in his unique voice, drawn from a range of addresses delivered during his ministry. It is encouraging, upbeat and charismatic — with all the power of his royal wedding sermon.

We were created by God and for God; therefore, the only way to find true joy, peace, and contentment is by embracing His wisdom. Wisdom, after all, is not just a philosophical concept, but rather a highly practical tool for living the best possible life. As Tozer said, "Wisdom walks on feet and it is found in the nursery, in the kitchen, on the street, in the factory, and in the home."

The material in this book was carefully chosen from A.W. Tozer's best sermons on wisdom and has never before been available in print. The chapters focus on important topics like overcoming temptation, seeing and appreciating God's hand in everything, and how to not be double-minded but fully committed to God. Wisdom is more than just a list of instructions--it is a part of God's character, inseparable from His love and grace. Embracing this wisdom means drawing closer to Him.

The Wisdom of God will change your decisions, attitudes, and relationships, setting you on the path to becoming all God wants you to be.

FRESH EYES ON JESUS' PARABLES
How does the parable of the good Samaritan redefine acts of social justice, not just acts of mercy? What does the story of the five talents teach us about daily spiritual life?

Fresh Eyes on Jesus' Parables offers a new perspective on the stories Jesus told to His closest disciples. As in every book in this unique series, Pastor Doug Newton provides life-changing techniques for reading Scripture, such as skills in interpreting one passage using another. Readers will love discovering familiar parables again as if for the first time.

FRESH EYES ON JESUS' MIRACLES
What can readers learn about personal transformation from Jesus turning water to wine? How does His feeding of the five thousand refocus their own call to serve?

In Fresh Eyes on Jesus' Miracles, Pastor Doug Newton finds hidden truths in the gospels' most familiar stories. From the wedding at Cana to Peter's miraculous catch, Newton offers cultural context, modern-day insights, and spiritual depth to awaken even the most seasoned reader's heart and mind. Most importantly, he equips readers to study Scripture with a fresh perspective—and join God's miraculous work in their most ordinary moments.

FRESH EYES ON FAMOUS BIBLE SAYINGS
What does it mean to “put on the full armor of God”? What does knowing “the kingdom of God is within you” have to do with relationships? How does Jesus’ use of the “Golden Rule” differ from versions of the rule found in other religions?

Pastor Doug Newton answers these questions and more using Scripture-reading techniques readers can then use on their own to discover life-changing truths from the Scripture passages they know the most.

Changing Lives covers everything you need to know about working with children and families - the why to, the how to, the when to and the where to. Mark Griffiths examines the history, theology and practice of children's ministry and shares the wisdom he has gained from many years' experience of leading hundreds of groups, assemblies and youth services.

In practical chapters, backed with sample resources, he shows how to communicate with children in the brave new postmodern world of church, school and community. This one stop resource covers everything from the vision for children's work to matters such as record keeping, home visits, timetables, child protection legislation and templates for lessons.

Selfies are ubiquitous. They can be silly or serious, casual or curated. Within moments, smart phone users can capture their image and post it across multiple social media platforms to a global audience. But do we truly understand the power of image in our image-saturated age? How can we seek God and care for each other in digital spaces?

Craig Detweiler, a nationally known writer and speaker and an avid social media user, examines the selfie phenomenon, placing selfies within the long history of self-portraits in art, literature, and photography. He shows how self-portraits change our perspective of ourselves and each other in family dynamics, education, and discipleship. Challenging us to push past unhealthy obsessions with beauty, wealth, and fame, Detweiler helps us to develop a thoughtful, biblical perspective on selfies and social media and to put ourselves in proper relation to God and each other. He also explains the implications of social media for an emerging generation, making this book a useful conversation starter in homes, churches, and classrooms. Each chapter ends with discussion questions and a photo assignment for creating a selfie in response to the chapter.
