New Releases

Soul Surfer DVD
Bethany Hamilton
Sony Pictures Entertainment, July 2011
The astonishing true story of a courageous 13-year-old surfer who lost her arm to a shark attack---but never lost her faith! You'll be inspired by how Bethany Hamilton overcame physical and emotional trauma to return to competitive surfing with the help of her family---and God.

Hell is Real (But I Hate to Admit It)
Brian Jones
David C Cook, July 2011
Does hell matter? Jones believes that the reason most Christians don't tell their friends and family about Jesus has nothing to do with not knowing how---it's because they don't think they need to. Drawing on Scripture, he leads you on a collision course with "apocalyptic urgency" that will strengthen your faith and free you to share the gospel. 272 pages, softcover from Cook.

Courageous: Honor Begins at Home
Alex & Stephen Kendrick
Tyndale, July 2011
Police officers Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners are prepared to deal with hardened criminals. But when they remove their badges, they face a more daunting challenge---fatherhood. As their children drift away, can these brave men find a way to serve and protect those nearest and dearest to them---and draw closer to God? 400 pages, softcover from Tyndale.

9/11: What a Difference a Day Makes, Ten Years Later
James Moore
Abingdon Press, July 2011
Black smoke billowing from the Twin Towers, a gaping hole in the Pentagon, airliner debris strewn across a Pennsylvania field---nobody will ever forget September 11, 2001. But what have we learned from that tragic day? Reminding us that life is a fragile gift, Moore encourages us to thank God for our freedom, faith, and family. 96 pages, softcover from Abingdon.

Christmas Is Not Your Birthday
Mike Slaughter
Abingdon Press, July 2011
We all do it---overeat, overspend, and shop till we drop---all in the name of celebrating Jesus' birth. But Slaughter shows us a better way! Cutting through the seasonal hype, he shares practical, Bible-based ideas to help you experience the peace of "God with us," the joy of giving sacrificially, and more. Includes reflection questions. 96 pages, softcover from Abingdon.
