New Releases

Jesus in the Present Tense
Warren Wiersbe
David C Cook, December 2010
In Jesus in the Present Tense, Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe explores the “I AM” statements of God—from His burning bush conversation with Moses, to His powerful reassurances to the Israelites, to Jesus’s startling claim to be the Light of the World. Many Christians find themselves mired in past regrets or future fears, but the name of God itself reminds readers that God wants them to live in the present. The more readers understand and apply God’s I AM statements from the Old and New Testaments, the more they will realize God’s peace and joy. Then they will be free to live, serve, and know God more richly in the present tense—which is just where He wants them to be.

Princess Grace and the Lost Little Kitten (The Princess Parables)
Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson
Zonderkidz, January 2011
'Search everywhere for the lost kitten. Bring her back safely to the castle.' In Princess Grace and the Little Lost Kitten, Princess Grace promised her father she would care for the kittens she found. But Poppy, the curious one, has run away. Princess Grace must find him, even if it means searching the entire kingdom . . . even braving the Black Woods. Along the way, she remembers a parable Jesus told about God's great love for us and how he too searches for each one who is lost.

Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson

'No one can come to the surprise party, Daddy. What will we do?' Princess Joy can't wait for her birthday. There will be treats, games, and an enormous cake with delicious icing! But when the other princes and princesses can't come and Princess Joy finds out, she comes up with a surprising plan to fill her day with special guests and unexpected gifts. Will it work? Her idea, shared in Princess Joy's Birthday Blessing, comes from a parable Jesus told about a party a lot like hers.

See You CD
Josh Wilson
Sparrow Records, January 2011
Josh Wilson returns with his highly anticipated new studio album, See You. Working with acclaimed producer Matt Bronlewee, See You features songs that are sure to inspire and challenge fellow believers. Much like Josh's previous hit singles "Savior, Please" and "Before The Morning," See You delivers songs like "I Refuse" and "Fall Apart" that are refreshingly honest and emotional while also lyrically and spiritually profound. Playing most of the instruments on the album himself, Josh also found ways to highlight what so many fans have come to love about him, his God-given talent as a one of a kind musician. Whether it be through an instrumental guitar loop or inviting family and friends to play/record their favorite kitchen utensil, Josh found ways to deliver a unique and commercial sound on See You that make this album one to watch. His first single from the album, "I Refuse" is already connecting with radio listeners around the U.S. The song was inspired by a quote that touched Josh's heart and convicted him after a devastating flood hit Nashville, TN earlier this year - the quote simple says "I can't do everything but I Refuse to do nothing". Josh's prayer for the song is that as Christians we will refuse to do nothing and be Christ's hands and feet to the world.
