New Releases

Lee Strobel
Zondervan, September 2010
Lee Strobel is award-winning reporter and author of the #1 bestseller The Case for Christ. Now, this innovative visual edition, Faith, uses the life-transforming content of Strobel's investigations in The Case for Faith and makes them accessible to a whole new audience. This visually rich book takes portions of the text of the original book and illustrates the themes and messages with provocative full-color photography and graphic illustrations. The creators of this visual edition designed it with the needs of contemporary postmodern readers in mind: both spiritual seekers and the younger, more visually oriented readers of today's culture. By combining Strobel's personal interviews and active narrative with striking images that enhance and illuminate the message, this unique book enables readers to deepen their convictions as they interact with the powerfully imaginative format. Faith is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with intellectual barriers standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with even their most skeptical friends.

John Piper
Crossway Books, September 2010
Challenging the church to "think hard" for the glory of God, Piper reminds us that "the mind serves to know the truth that fuels the fire of the heart." Relying on Scriptures such as Proverbs 2:1--6, he shows how to maintain a healthy and balanced emotional, intellectual, and spiritual relationship with Christ. 192 pages, hardcover from Crossway.

Say Yes to God
Kay Warren
Zondervan, September 2010
Kay Warren had a plan. Together with her husband Pick Warren, author of the megaseller The Purpose Driven Life, she planned that after her kids were grown, she'd travel the world, teaching and encouraging couples in ministry. It was a good plan. But it wasn't what God had in mind for her. Say Yes to God--formerly titled Dangerous Surrender--takes readers alongside Kay as she travels the globe and takes a closer look at her own community, coming face to face with the bruised, broken and hurting. Just as Kay is compelled to shrug off her complacency about the suffering in this world, she compels readers to recognize and answer God's call to serve. Kay's message reveals the beauty--and heartache--of a surrendered life, and demonstrates the astounding rewards of such surrender. Her example will challenge, inspire and equip readers to experience the same. They will discover an intimacy with their Father experienced only by those who lay down their lives on behalf of the things that move his heart, those who are willing to "say yes to God."

The Big Red Tractor and the Little Village
Francis Chan
David C Cook, September 2010
"Forgotten God for kids". A timeless parable for children from best-selling author Francis Chan. The villagers loved the big, red tractor. It helped them grow enough food to get them through the year. But it was hard to use, and it didn’t work very well. Even with everyone helping to push and pull the tractor, they couldn’t get much done. Everyone believed that was just how things were. That is, until Farmer Dave discovered a long-lost book in a dusty attic. Could it really change everything? Farmer Dave thinks so. But the other villagers aren’t so sure. The Big Red Tractor and His Little Village is a contemporary parable sharing a timeless truth: God has a special purpose for you and you can fulfill it through the help of his Spirit. It’s a powerful lesson perfectly told for little hearts.
