Read Review

Each day offers encouragement and hope from a Savior who is closer than you can imagine and who will never leave you. 

Grow in a deep personal faith while reading a message that everyone needs to hear and embrace deep within the soul. Jesus Calling® is a devotional that is read daily by more than six million people. This version includes the beloved original content, but with a modern cover that will appeal to a younger audience.

After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, but gradually her journaling changed from monologue to dialogue. She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but journaling helped her grow closer to God, and from that experience Jesus Calling® came to be.

It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless every reader with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.

4. The Purpose of Man: Designed to Worship

by: A. W. TozerJames L. Snyder
Release date: Feb 16, 2009
Number of Pages: 186
Find in Library
Read Review
The one great obsession of A. W. Tozer’s life was worship. Many have written about worship, but Tozer surpassed them all in simple passion and supreme purpose. Compiled from material never before published, this book presents Tozer’s systematic teaching on worship, the subject close to his heart. One of the first in evangelical circles to call attention to the doctrine of worship, Tozer knew worship as the purpose of man and the expectation of God. His thoughts on this subject were deeply rooted in biblical doctrine and historic writings, blending Scripture with some of the great devotional writers throughout history. Like sitting down with Tozer, The Purpose of Man delivers the soul cry of Tozer on worship and will inspire readers to not only understand worship, but also experience it in his or her own heart. ?This will be the best teaching in my ministry. I want to deliver my soul as a prophet of God to the people, and to explain why we were created and why we are here, not to the satisfaction of the needed appetite only but to something bigger, grander and more eternal, that we might worship God and enjoy Him forever.” A. W. Tozer

We live in a world of extreme polarization. We are constantly bombarded with opinions and arguments. As a result, church culture can become segregated from the rest of the world.

But Jesus walked on both sides of the dividing line. He spoke with religious people, and he ate with town rejects. What if God’s truth is somewhere between the division?

Unbalanced takes a close look at what we’ve separated over, what the church has gotten right and wrong, and where Jesus stands in the middle of it all.

Reviews for No More No

“I love this book! Julie shares her inspiring journey of learning to hear God’s voice, ignore her fears and say yes to God’s promptings at the store, the mall, the workplace and even online. Julie fills the pages with powerful testimonies as well as great tips on how to listen for God’s voice and share His gifts of love in a way that is fun and stress free. No More No will inspire your heart with a new level of faith for hearing God’s voice and ministering His love and power in everyday living.”

– J. Nicole Williamson, Author of five books including Heaven’s Secret of Success and Founding Director of King’s Lantern International

“There is a time for learning and a time for action. In reading No More No, I’m truly convicted that even though I’m a fulltime missionary, I have spent far too much time trying to learn, and not nearly enough time trying to simply do what Jesus did. Julie’s numerous (and often humorous) examples of this commitment to say yes to Jesus daily have inspired me to go and do likewise!”

-Scott Sullivan, Director of New Initiatives, Frontiers France

“No More No could completely change how you live your life…it did mine!” -Barbara S.

“I’m excited to use this book in my own life and as a teaching source to help people hear God’s voice and boldly step out and act on it.” -Mary Ann E.

“I fell in love with this book from the moment I started reading it, and I began having my own encounters with people who needed prayer after the first two chapters!” -Nancy R.

“This is a great read for those who want to begin a relationship with God and for those who want their relationship to grow.” -Matt W.

“I cried at Julie’s intense boldness in the theatre. Wow! Come on, Jesus!” -Karis J.

Martin Luther’s life was too exciting not to be written for teens and younger readers! In this fast-paced, action-packed novel of Martin Luther’s life, teen readers (and more than a few adults!) will be introduced to a fascinating time when princes ruled Europe and knights roamed the countryside. They’ll learn about a time when powerful forces lined up against each other and believing the wrong thing could get you killed.When Lightning Struck! is far more than just an adventure story, of course. It also tells a theological story. Drawing carefully from Luther’s own words, this book introduces readers to a kindred spirit who struggled with what knowing God through Scripture means for daily life. They will understand what was at stake and how powerfully liberating Luther’s idea of grace through faith wasin his time and in ours! In crisp, enjoyable prose, author Danika Cooley conveys both the drama and the meaning of the Reformation for younger readers like no one before her!

13. Big God: What Happens When We Trust Him

by: Britt Merrick
Release date: Jun 15, 2012
Number of Pages: 304
Find in Library
Read Review
Faith is trust. It is a confidence in the power and goodness of God that leads us to make good decisions and allows us to surrender our lives to Him. Hebrews 6:12 says that we are to be ?imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” One of the best ways to grow in faith is to imitate the lives of people who have shown great faith. Hebrews 11 guides us through the lives of men and women ? like Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Rahab, David and others ? who have done just that. Real people with real lives and real problems, who had faith in a great God and trusted Him at pivotal moments in their lives. By drawing on some of the greatest lives of faith in the Bible, readers will come to see that God was worthy of these men’s and women’s trust and faith during biblical times in the same way that He is worthy of ours today. This new edition of Big God includes a study guide for deeper reflection and personal application.

Read Review
Cuando Mark y Nancy Sheppard comenzaron su trabajo misionero en Liberia, Nancy no tenía idea alguna de las cosas que Dios le pediría. El primer periodo de tiempo que estuvieron en el campo misionero fue tranquilo, pero fue seguido por la Guerra Civil en Liberia y un año horripilante de trabajo con los refugiados liberianos en Costa de Marfil. La situación era difícil, las expectativas eran abrumadoras y la tensión de la guerra se encontraba en la puerta de su casa. Miedo, autocompasión, resentimiento y depresión la perseguían. Dios usó la difícil decisión que tomó Nancy de seguir el liderazgo de su esposo y de continuar trabajando con los refugiados para llevarla en un asombroso viaje espiritual— uno que le permitió tener un entendimiento más claro sobre la femineidad bíblica, al igual que tener una relación más cercana con el Señor y con su esposo. El libro registra el viaje que toma Nancy para llegar a una verdadera paz en medio de circunstancias muy difíciles. Mientras Dios le va enseñando sobre qué significa un servicio genuino, la sumisión, la oración sincera, la reverencia y la humildad, ella es completamente y totalmente transformada. Las escenas presentadas son particulares a la vida de Nancy, pero cualquier cristiano en búsqueda de algo más puede identificarse plenamente con las lecciones espirituales que ella aprende.

REGENER8 is not your parent’s devotional. Your world is smaller due to technology. Your music is extreme, your entertainment edgy. Life moves at a much faster pace. You live life in dog years. You embrace life, and you tell it like it is. This book’s for you.

REGENER8 is an 8-week devotional, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a foundation builder – a blueprint for life.

It’s relevant and controversial. It’s in your face.

REGENER8 takes the training wheels off youth ministry and rips down the speed limit signs. This fast-paced book will challenge you in every area of your life. While this book is packed with life-changing truth, we opted for no preservatives and no sugar-coating. Just 100% of your daily allowance of in-your-face Gospel truth.

The only requirement is that you leave your preconceived notions about God and Jesus at the door, and commit to this eight-week journey for truth. Are you up for the challenge of REGENER8? Are you tough enough to handle 8 weeks, 8 lessons, and 8 truths? Are you tired of playing life? If so, let’s REGENER8 your life.

Read Review
Brendan and Erc are just your average interplanetary mailmen trying to find their way in the galaxy. But one day, while piloting cargo through the far reaches of space, they suddenly find themselves on a journey they didn’t expect: a journey to the truth. The Truth Is Out There combines the visual excitement and quirky humor of graphic novels with solid popular philosophy and theology. The result is a book in which everyone from teens to adults can find accessible answers to questions about God, the soul, true happiness, and much more and have fun doing it! And because Brendan and Erc start their journey at the very beginning, readers don’t have to possess any kind of faith to appreciate the thoughtful ideas and arguments they’ll encounter. If you just have an open mind (and a sense of adventure) you will come away from these pages with a clearer sense of life’s purpose, and a better understanding of the reasons for believing in God, Jesus, and the Church. And if you’re already a believer, The Truth Is Out There will deepen your knowledge of the Faith and sharpen your skills at defending it.

Read Review
In The Way of the Cross, Caryll Houselander accomplishes two things: first, by her imaginative re-creation of the Passion and Death of Our Lord, realized with intensity, detail, and depth, she brings a drama of anguish and tragedy to our immediate awareness; secondly, she shows us the Passion reflected in all human suffering. We can no more be detached spectators of the Passion than we can be detached spectators of the griefs and travails of the contemporary world. As Caryll Houselander writes, the part we are called to play is that of Veronica, coming forward to wipe the tears and sorrows from every stricken face we meet. And each time we have the courage and compassion to do so, we find the same image left on the veil. These profound meditations on the Stations of the Cross allow the reader to walk in the footsteps of Christ on that distant yet ever-present Good Friday.

26. Confessions of a Transformed Heart – Youth Edition – An Interactive eBook with Discussion Questions

by: Nancy D. Sheppard
Release date: Jul 15, 2013
Number of Pages: 209
Find in Library
Read Review
When Mark and Nancy Sheppard began missionary service in Liberia, Nancy had no idea what God would ask of her. Their idyllic first term was followed by the Liberian Civil War and a nightmarish year working among Liberian refugees in the Ivory Coast. Conditions were difficult, expectations overwhelming and the tensions of the war at their doorstep. Fear, self-pity, resentment and depression haunted her. God used Nancy’s difficult decision to follow her husband’s leadership and remain in refugee work to begin an amazing spiritual journey—one that led to a clearer understanding of biblical womanhood as well as a deeper relationship with the Lord and with her husband. The book chronicles Nancy’s journey to true peace in the midst of very difficult circumstances. As God teaches her about genuine service, submission, sincere prayer, reverence and humility, she is totally and completely transformed. The scenarios are unique to Nancy, but every seeking Christian can fully identify with the spiritual lessons.

A unique reading experience, this interactive eBook contains many full color pictures as well as links to pertinent YouTube videos. This Kindle edition of “Confessions of a Transformed Heart” will not disappoint!

(The Youth Edition removes some of the more detailed explanations of the war and Liberian culture that may not be appropriate for younger readers.)

Read Review
The Intercessors Exordium is the first book a the new compelling series of Christian fiction that is packed with mystery, action, adventure, romance, history and most importantly; excellent lessons of the love and power of Jesus Christ, prayer and in learning and speaking God’s written Word; the Bible. From the very first chapter this book will pull at your heart and keep you on the edge of your seat, driving you to keep reading and leave you wanting more.

Set in the quaint and historic town of Fairfield, Connecticut you will meet Obadiah O’Sullivan, a retired engineer and grandfather of Brielle St. Claire. Brielle, along with three of her friends, twins Gideon and Keoni Toussaint and Jace Roberts, decide they want to do something to help solve a mystery that is seriously affecting the citizens of their home town.

The Intercessors come together to dedicate their lives to the service of their Savior Jesus Christ and build His Kingdom here on earth in the hearts of those who need Him the most. Obadiah trains the Intercessors, taking them on an incredible journey to an extraordinary Bible school. Once they begin their service for the Lord, they find themselves in a battle against the forces of evil that are greatly attacking their friends, town and others who desperately need God’s help.

The Intercessors learn how to truly minister the love of Jesus Christ to those who are hurting and not to be judgmental or self righteous– as their sins are just as much in need of forgiveness as those of anyone else. Through their training, they not only are equipped heavily in prayer and with the mighty power of God and His Holy Scriptures, they also learn self defense techniques to protect themselves against those who would come against them.

Through their journey, the Intercessors learn there are no greater weapons than the power of prayer and in speaking God’s written Word, the Bible to defeat their enemies. Because of their great faith and obedience, God delivers them from the hands of their enemies and blesses them most abundantly with a grand victory.

This book is unlike anything else out there available on the Christian market today. It promises to keep you turning pages until the end and hopefully….to be reaching for your Bible when you are finished.

28. Lay Siege To Heaven

by: Louis de Wohl
Release date: Dec 10, 2010
Number of Pages: 372
Find in Library
Read Review

Continuing his popular series of novels about saints of the Church, de Wohl devotes his considerable talents to an interpretation of one of the most unusual women of all time, Saint Catherine of Siena. The daughter of a prosperous dyer in fourteenth-century Siena, Catherine never forgot the mystical experience of her extreme youth; at that time she devoted herself to Christ. It was, however, a shock to her family when, refusing marriage, she insisted on giving her life totally to God.

Her career was extraordinary. In that confused and dangerous era of history, the Pope was living at Avignon: Catherine persuaded him to return to Rome. The City-States of Italy were at war with each other: Catherine subdued them. There was pestilence: Catherine served and saved. She performed miracles, she received the stigmata, she drew about her a crowd of devoted men and women.

A saint who would not let the Lord God alone, she really did lay siege to heaven—and changed the face of her world. This novel, which is also a vivid biography, brings Catherine of Siena to life in a remarkable way. She lives on every page.

WHERE IS GOD IN THE STORMS?

When you’re in pain, your natural response is to ask these questions aimed at God himself:

  • Why me?
  • Don’t you care?
  • Where are you?
  • Are you strong enough to help?

During my storms of disease, death, and divorce, I grappled with these questions and many more. What I heard in response not only stunned me, it also gave me the strength to endure.

Along with hope and healing, I found something I never expected—abundant blessings. God gives his children this promise, “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten…” (Joel 2:25).

If you purchase and read Chosen to be Blessed you will:

    • Learn to prepare your spiritual life in order to strengthen your faith by studying Gods signs as he calls you to believe in Him.  
    • Find hope in the eye of the storm by accepting your weaknesses and dependency on Gods strength and learn to live in His peace.
    • Understand the reasons why pain leads to restoration for your good and how God uses it to help us grow.

Because the book will:

    • Provide a framework where the reader can decipher Gods attempts to get our attention in signs and life’s pain that cause us to recognize who He is and His plan of salvation involves pain.
    • Combine various accounts of signs and stories that give the reader cause to pause and believe again that God can use the painful storms of life as a warning, a wake-up call, and a process to transform our hearts to be ready to receive blessings.
    • Restore hope by giving examples on how to find your reasons in your restoration. Then you are encouraged to take action to build your faith, restore broken relationships, and find purpose again.

Read these pages and you’ll see firsthand how God creates purpose within your pain. Chosen to be Blessed, reveals three secrets to transform your life’s storms to blessings.

“A must read … a heartfelt guide on turning adversities into opportunities to serve God.” William Sirls – #1 Bestselling author of The Reason and The Sinners’ Garden.

 “In Chosen to be Blessed, Ronald Re openly, honestly, and humbly deals with the treacherous events that sometimes blast our lives, our hopes, our dreams. What was thought to be a very happy life with a good future, suddenly erupted into a tortuous series of disheartening and draining experiences.

As his secure world was breaking apart, Ronald’s analytical mind found its way to probe the wisdom of God, and the transformation it produced in his life is spectacular. With a heart for others whose lives are being shattered with unexplainable hardships, he carefully and clearly lays out the path he took to come to the realization that even disease, death, and divorce, or any other disaster in life, can be turned into unnumbered and ongoing blessings by our redeeming God. “ Rev. Ronald Graef – Retired Pastor of Evangel Baptist Church.
