Flesh [Paperback]

Flesh [Paperback]Christ's Body, Human "Flesh" If we're honest, no one really cares about theology unless it reveals a gut-level view of God's presence. According to pastor and ministry leader Hugh Halter, only the incarnational power of Jesus satisfies what we truly crave, and once we taste it, we're never the same. God understands how hard it is to be human, and the incarnation--God with us--enables us to be fully alive. With refreshing, raw candor, "Flesh" reveals the faith we all long to experience--one based on the power of Christ in the daily grind of work, home, school, and life. For anyone burned out, disenchanted, or seeking a fresh honest-to-God encounter, "Flesh" will invigorate your faith.

Heaven Is For Real: Movie Edition [Paperback]
Heaven Is For Real: Movie Edition [Paperback]By Todd Burpo & Lynn Vincent (Contributor)
This #1 "New York Times" bestseller gets a limited-edition version with movie art and a new introduction and updated epilogue from the authors.
"Heaven Is for Real" is the true story of the four-year-old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who, during emergency surgery, slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe, but soon the evidence was clear.

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather, who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.

Told by the father but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready because a last battle is coming. This special movie edition that will be available in time for the 4/16/14 premiere of the movie will include bonus material written by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent such as a new introduction on how the movie came about and insights into the movie making experience. In addition, the eight pages of photos will expand to sixteen pages and include recent photos from the life of the family and the filming.

Mission Drift : The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders Charities And Churches [Hardcover]

By Peter GreerChris Horst & Andy Crouch (Foreward By)
CEO of International Nonprofit Shows Organizations How to Stay True to Their Calling As Christian organizations grow, the gospel often becomes cursory, expendable, or even forgotten. Again and again, leaders have watched their ministries, businesses, and nonprofits professionalize, expand, and lose sight of their original goals. Even churches can stray from their calling. Mission Drift provides the tools leaders need to keep their organizations "mission true" or get back on track. Supported by research and filled with compelling anecdotes, Mission Drift identifies organizations that exhibit intentional, long-term commitment to Christ in contrast to those that have wandered away from their core beliefs. All leaders will face mission drift at some point. Peter Greer and Chris Horst show readers how to leave an enduring Christian legacy rather than drifting off course.

Butterfly Palace: A Novel [Paperback]

Butterfly Palace: A Novel [Paperback]Elegance and wealth. Privilege and politics. The extravagance of the Butterfly Palace overwhelmed Lily's senses and nearly smothered her painful memories. She pushed away her misgivings . . . She was perfectly safe in this huge house.

Austin, Texas--1904: Abandoned by the love of her life and still mourning the loss of her mother, Lily Donaldson has turned her back on the pain and come to Austin for a fresh start, working for the Marshall family as a kitchen maid in their luxurious mansion, the Butterfly Palace. The tasks before her are legion, and her mistress less than pleasant, but at least Lily's new life will be, if nothing else, distracting.

But one night, while serving at a dinner party, Lily recognizes the man who abandoned her, Andy, her liaison from the livery stable, the blacksmith's son . . . sitting among the distinguished guests. Though he recognizes her, Andy does not acknowledge her aloud, and Lily is left reeling, flabbergasted, and irate.

But before she can get an explanation, the path of the Servant Girl Killer swerves very close to the Butterfly Palace, sowing terror among the maids. Having come to Austin to start anew, Lily suddenly feels trapped in a spider web. How can she know who to trust in a house where lies come dressed in fine suits and deceit in silk gowns the colors of butterfly wings?
