New Releases

Francis Chan
David C Cook, October 2012
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus told his disciples, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." This commission includes believers today. The task may seem large, but it doesn't have to be an intimidating mandate, rather a way of living that invites people into what God is doing in their lives. However, somewhere along the line, disciple-making moved from being a part of everyday life to the sole responsibility of pastors and evangelists. The result is that we no longer feel equipped to share the life-giving gospel of Jesus with our friends and neighbors. This isn't how things are supposed to be, and in Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples, Francis Chan and Mark Beuving show you how the joy of living your life with Christ in front of others can be restored. You'll discover the confidence and encouragement you need to step out in faith and make disciples out of the people that God has placed in your life. Multiply offers 24 sessions of discipleship mentoring material designed for small-group use.

God Loves You
David Jeremiah
Faith Words, September 2012
Sometimes it's hard to believe that God loves us unconditionally. The world, and many times our own hearts tell us we need to do or be certain things to be worthy of love. Therefore, the reality of God's unadulterated love can take a long time, perhaps a lifetime, to truly sink in. In his new book God Loves You, David Jeremiah seeks to remove any doubt from believer's minds of God's vast and encompassing love for them. By drawing first and foremost from the Bible, he explores the radical truths that God loved you before you were born, He loves you even when you don't love Him, He loves you when He corrects you, and He will never let you go. Understanding the depth of God's love will draw you into deeper relationship with Him and transform your heart and life forever.

A Kauffman Amish Christmas Collection
Amy Clipston
Zondervan, September 2012
In A Plain and Simple Christmas, from the author of the widely popular Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, shunned Anna Mae doesn't receive the welcome she expects when she pays a visit for Christmas and her world begins to fall apart, leaving her to question her place in her family---and her faith in God. Set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Naomi's Gift reintroduces twenty-four-year-old Naomi King, who has given up her dreams of finding true love. But when a young widower stirs surprising feelings in her, Naomi cautiously opens her heart to him and receives an unexpected response that once again turns her world upside-down. Author Amy Clipston artfully paints a panorama of simple lives full of complex relationships, and she carefully explores cultural differences and human similarities, with inspirational results.
