Experiencing God Around the Kitchen Table
Marilynn Blackaby with Carrie Blackaby Webb
Tyndale, August 2008

Women today have very multi faceted lives. They balance husbands, children, ministry, and often careers! The biblical example of older women mentoring the younger generation is often missing today.

Six Prayers God Always Answers (*Results May Vary)
Mark Herringshaw & Jennifer Schuchmann
Tyndale, April 2008

In Six Prayers God Always Answers, Mark Herringshaw and Jennifer Schuchmann point out that the most authentic prayers may not look, feel, or smell like the ones we were taught in Sunday school. Using illustrations from the Bible, history, and pop culture, they demonstrate that prayer isn’t about a specific posture or a recitation of words, but rather the foundation of a relationship—a relationship where some unexpected results can occur. If you’re frustrated because it seems your prayers often go unanswered, Six Prayers won’t show you how to pray better, but it will show you how to discover the answers you may have overlooked, and how relationship matters more than the words.

Love: The Most Excellent Way
Chuck Smith
The Word for Today, May 2008

Ever since the first human pair craned their necks skyward to bask in a silvery full moon, men and women have rhapsodized about love. We say (and sing!) that "love makes the world go 'round," that "love is the answer," that "all you need is love." You might even say we glory in "the power of love." But what is love, really? And if it's so popular, then why dose it seem so hard to find?

Wrestling with God
James Denison
SaltRiver, August 2008

Most people, even devout Christians, struggle with issues about God. We sit in the pew every Sunday and affirm the essentials of Christianity in theory, but when it comes to trusting God with our daily lives, we share a secret, painful fear that God isn't really looking out for us. In Wrestling with God, James Denison acknowledges the often unspoken doubts and questions that both believers and nonbelievers share--and invites us to join him in wrestling with God and Scripture for the answers.

Being Christian: Exploring Where You, God, and Life Connect
Stephen Arterburn and John Shore
Bethany House, August 2008

Being Christian. What does that mean? And how do you do it?
Wherever you happen to be along the faith continuum, this book is for you. Steve Arterburn and John Shore tackle some simple, but also complex, questions that just about everyone has about being Christian. For some, it will be an introduction to Christian beliefs and practices. For others, it will be an in-depth review. The authors say, "We asked a lot of people, and did a lot of thinking and praying, in order to come up with the questions about Christianity and its attending issues that we feel even the most experienced Christians sometimes want answered."
