New Releases

Beautiful Outlaw
John Eldredge
FaithWords, September 2011
In BEAUTIFUL OUTLAW, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. He was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company, heavy drinking. Of being the devil himself. He was so compelling and dangerous they had to kill him. But others loved him passsionately. He had a sense of humor. His generosity was scandalous. His anger made enemies tremble. He'd say the most outrageous things. He was definitely not the Jesus of the stained glass.
In the author's winsome, narrative approach, he breaks Jesus out of the typical stereotypes, just as he set masculinity free in his book, Wild at Heart. By uncovering the real Jesus, readers are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. All of the remarkable qualities of Jesus burst like fireworks with color and brilliance because of his humanity. Eldredge goes on to show readers how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day. This book will quicken readers' worship, and deepen their intimacy with Jesus.

God's Story, Your Story
Max Lucado
Zondervan, September 2011
We all long for meaning, to know that our lives have a purpose beyond what we see in the day to day. However, life can sometimes seem like a disconnected string of events. One day you're celebrating the birth of a child, the next you're mourning the passing of a grandparent. Is there a throughline to the ups and downs of life? Using the structure of the New Testament as a guide in God's Story Your Story, Max Lucado weaves together Biblical and personal stories that will help you find your place in the larger story of God's work in the world.

I Never Thought I'd See the Day! Culture at the Crossroads
Dr. David Jeremiah
FaithWords, September 2011
Is Western civilization in an accelerating decline? And if it continues will it eventually weaken and cause us to come to the end of cultured civilization as we now know it? "Yes," says David Jeremiah, and in his book, I NEVER THOUGHT I'D SEE THE DAY! he details numerous signs of this cultural decay including: America held hostage by Iran, marriage becoming obsolete, America turning its back on Israel, and atheist attack on religion. Can this downward spiral be reversed? Yes, but only if one person at a time returns to God with our heart, our manner of life, our dedication to genuine worship of God, in serving God by helping others, in our giving, and in prayer.
