  • They Walked With God

    $29.99

    The characters we meet in the Bible play a huge role in our lives. Whether we personally relate to Joseph’s dedication to serving the Lord even when he was confused or we understand when Mary Magdalene mourns in front of the vacant tomb, the timeless stories we find in the Bible influence and inspire us to learn to be more like Christ. But how can we apply these lessons to our everyday lives?

    In They Walked with God, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado takes a closer look at 40 of the most inspirational characters in the Bible and shares a powerful message: if God can find a place for each character in the Bible, we can rest assured that he’s carved out a spot for us too.

    They Walked with God also includes a series of meaningful, in-depth discussion questions that correspond with each biblical character that Max has highlighted, giving you a chance to reflect further about the incredible lives they led and the lessons we can learn from them. This one-of-a-kind, interactive resource is perfect for devout followers and new believers alike.

    Max weaves together stories from Scripture with stories that offer a modern perspective, bringing each of these men and women to life within the pages of They Walked with God. Max will encourage you as you get to know these figures, and yourself, better by:

    *Guiding you through a comprehensive study of 40 of the Bible’s most remarkable–and sometimes seemingly unremarkable–characters

    *Providing 185+ thoughtful and engaging discussion questions designed to spark further conversation about how we can apply these lessons to our daily lives

    *Sharing personal stories that will help you grow your faith and strengthen your relationship with Jesus

    Max adds dimension and depth to 40 incredible people who had the chance to walk alongside God, reminding us that we’re invited to walk alongside him too.

  • Mothers And Daughters Of The Bible Speak

    $26.99

    God always keeps His promises, but not always in the way we expect….

    “Have faith” is a phrase we hear all the time. But what does it actually look like to live it out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream examines the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down. She tells the story of Jochebed, a mother who took enormous risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharaoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God’s actual design for her son involved flight into exile and danger? And yet this was all part of the master plan to deliver Israel from slavery. Another biblical mother, Rebekah, made terrible choices in an attempt to ensure her son’s place in history. And a daughter, Michal, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in herself.

    Through these stories, Shannon explains the intimate connection between faith and family–and how God’s unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters in the Bible were paragons of virtue. Like us, they were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heard God’s voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can see how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He’s still doing the same work in our lives today.

    The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak shows that faith is more often a twisting road than a straight line. Yet, as the stories of biblical families attest, at the end of these journeys lies greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.

  • David The Great

    $19.99

    How much do you really know about the life of KING DAVID?

    He was a man of unwavering loyalty, great faith, and national vision.
    He was a Spirit-led poet with prophetic and Messianic insights who reached beyond the millennia.
    He was a musician whose lullabies could soothe a demon-haunted soul.
    He was a political leader strong enough to forge a single nation out of disparate tribes.
    But he was also an adulterer, a murderer, a mercenary raider, and a hated father.
    He caused suffering among his people with an act of hubris.
    He ordered the execution of his enemies on his deathbed.
    He enjoyed many wives and concubines.
    Most of all, he broke the laws of both God and man.

    Let’s just say, what you know about King David only scratches the surface.

  • Eyewitness To Promise Abraham

    $12.99

    Abraham is among the best known men of the bible. There is not a single book in our scriptures written by Abraham and He did not speak any recorded prophesy. Yet, Abraham is known as the father of the Hebrew nation. It was through Abraham’s seed that all nations on earth have been blessed (Genesis 12:3) and God even refers to this historic man of faith as His friend (Isaiah 41:8). When Abraham was told to leave his country, his people, and his father’s household (Genesis 12:1), he obeyed, even though he had no idea where he was going (Hebrews 11:6). Though Abraham’s wife had been barren their entire marriage, when the Lord told the patriarch his offspring would be as numerous as the stars in the sky, Abraham chose to believe God, despite his circumstances. Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness (Genesis 15:5-6). Through this study, you will watch the budding father of a nation question God’s plans, take matters into his own hands, and, at times, compromise truth. Like us, Abraham and his wife, Sarah, made mistakes along their journey with God, but Abraham learned to trust God more fully from each misstep. Abraham became a great man of faith. Through his story, you too, will develop unwavering faith as you gain a greater understanding of the covenant God made with Abraham and his descendants. You will find a greater sense of peace and security. For as a believer in Christ, you are Abraham’s spiritual descendant and an heir according to the promise (Galatians 3:29).

  • Control Girl : Lessons On Surrendering Your Burden Of Control From Seven Wo

    $14.99

    “I control because I care.”
    “I just want to be sure of a happy ending.”
    “I worry that everything is spinning out of control.”

    Many women can identify with statements like these. They have a compulsion to make everything turn out just right and are willing to do anything to make it happen. But this unbalanced pursuit of control makes those around them anxious and defensive. And when they realize control is slipping from their grasp, they lose control of themselves and react in anger or fear.

    Shannon Popkin knows this struggle inside and out. Keeping her inner Control Girl hidden is a full-time job. Thankfully, she also knows another very important truth: no woman has to be a Control Girl.

    In this encouraging book, Shannon invites seven Control Girls from the Bible into the conversation. She examines each story for the moments in which grasping for control circumvented God’s plans for good, whether it was Eve’s desire to know instead of to trust, Sarah’s inability to wait for God to move, or Rebekah’s controlling hand on her family’s future. Finally, Shannon finds God’s perspective on each of the problems and then reveals how readers’ can have their own happy endings in similar situations.

    The author shares from her own struggles and follows each Bible study with questions for personal reflection. In the end, controlling women will find insight into their own experience, peace in the knowledge that God is in control, and relief that they are free.
