    A life of courageous service.

    Meet Eric Liddell: A man of valor.

  • Fierce Mercy : Daring To Live Out God’s Compassion In Bold And Practical Wa

    $16.99

    Abby Johnson thought she knew what mercy was when she ushered desperate women toward abortion as the director of a Planned Parenthood facility. She was wrong. It wasn’t until she understood the blood on her hands that she personally experienced the power of God’s fierce yet tender mercy to transform her life. But she never imagined what could happen once she allowed that very mercy to infiltrate her life and spill out into a hurting world.

    In Fierce Mercy, Abby calls you to experience a transformation of your own. Against the backdrop of her first decade involved in the pro-life movement, Abby helps you discover God’s unrestrained mercy at work in your own life and take steps toward becoming a channel of that life-changing mercy in the world around you. She shows you how to model God’s mercy, freely offer mercy to those who seem undeserving, respond with mercy when others err or offend, and bear witness to God’s unrestrained compassion so that others may know him.

    This is Abby’s challenge to you: dare to do what is hard, what is right, and what is good. And do all of it in love.

    A gripping autobiography from missionary and Bible courier Paul Hattway, author of The Heavenly Man

    Paul Hattaway was a high-school dropout from New Zealand–homeless, hungry, and lonely–before he found faith. But once he encountered the love of God and read the Bible, Paul never looked back. The rest of his life has centered on making sure all the people of Asia have Bibles of their own.

  • Recovered : How An Accident, Alcohol, And Addiction Led Me To God

    $16.99

    Robby Gallaty is not who you think he is.

    In Recovered, pastor and author Robby Gallaty tells the story of how God radically saved him from his addictions and called him into a life of discipleship.

    Robby grew up in a very religious Catholic family who attended church every Sunday and confession on Saturday if needed. Very rarely did he miss a Saturday night dinner and a movie with his parents and sister Lori. You can imagine how devastated they were when Robby stole $15,000 from them to fuel his drug addiction. Two years earlier, he was rear-ended on his way home from work by an 18-wheeler. Two herniated discs in his neck and back forced him to rely on pharmaceutical drugs to cope with the pain. Within three months, he transitioned to street drugs, heroine, and cocaine, after blowing through his thirty-day prescription in two weeks. Robbing his parents was the only option to prolong his drug habit.

    Shortly thereafter, Robby hit rock bottom. But God wasn’t done with him. After a trip to rehab followed by a relapse and a second rehab visit, Robby surrendered his life to Christ, and nothing has ever been the same. This story–a story of salvation and new life–is for any reader who:
    *wonders if God is done with them?
    *has messed up time and time again?
    *is battling drug or alcohol addiction or other destructive behaviors?
    *has a loved one in the throes of addiction?
    *needs to be reminded of the miraculous salvation found in the gospel

  • Samuel Rutherford : The Law, The Prince And The Scribe

    $1.00

    When Samuel Rutherford picked up his pen he changed lives, maybe even across continents. What he wrote influenced the American constitution but where his real power and passion was felt was in the letters that his warm pastor’s heart wrote to the people of his parish.

    His book Lex Rex was burned on a pyre but his notes of comfort and wisdom were cherished by those he cared to guide and counsel.

    Accused of treason he died of illness before there was time to make him a martyr and on his gravestone today, just west of the Bell Tower in St. Andrews Cathedral are engraved the striking words that sum up his life, “Acquainted with Emmanuel’s Love’.

  • John Chrysostom : The Preacher In The Emperor’s Court

    $1.00

    There was something about John Chrysostom and the words he spoke that lit up his world.
    He was an important leader of the early church, known so much for his preaching and public speaking that he was given the nickname Golden Mouth. He spoke his mind and followed his convictions. He refused to host the lavish social gatherings that his predecessors had laid on. This meant that John Chrysostom really annoyed the wealthy citizens of Constantinople. He spoke out against how many influential Christians cared little for the poor.

    “It is madness to fill your cupboards with clothing while other human beings stand naked and trembling with the cold so that they can hardly hold themselves upright.”

    It didn’t matter if you were rich or poor John spoke the truth – emphatically. Even the empress fell under his criticism which eventually led to his exile and death.

  • Breakthrough Movie Tie In Edition

    $14.99

    BREAKTHROUGH, soon to be a major motion picture, reveals prayer’s immediate and powerful impact through the true account of a family whose son died and was miraculously resurrected.

    Through the years and the struggles, when life seemed more about hurt and loss than hope and mercy, God was positioning the Smiths for something extraordinary–the death and resurrection of their son.

    When Joyce Smith’s fourteen-year-old son John fell through an icy Missouri lake one winter morning, she and her family had seemingly lost everything. At the hospital, John lay lifeless for more than sixty minutes. But Joyce was not ready to give up on her son. She mustered all her faith and strength into one force and cried out to God in a loud voice to save him.
    Miraculously, her son’s heart immediately started beating again.

    In the coming days, John would defy every expert, every case history, and every scientific prediction. Sixteen days after falling through the ice and being clinically dead for an hour, he walked out of the hospital under his own power, completely healed.

    BREAKTHROUGH is about a profound truth: prayer really does work. God uses it to remind us that He is always with us, and when we combine it with unshakable faith, nothing is impossible.

  • Blessed Life

    $14.99

    From “Facts of Life” to “Living Single” to “Dancing with the Stars” to wife and mom, here’s the BLESSED LIFE of Kim Fields, veteran actress, TV personality, and star.

    Kim Fields has lived most of her life with people thinking they know her, which is understandable. From her first job on a Mrs. Butterworth syrup commercial at age 7, she has spent 40 years in the public eye. There were 9 years as Dorothy “Tootie” Ramsey on the classic sitcom The Facts of Life, 5 more in her 20s starring as Regine Hunter on the seminal coming-of-age show Living Single, and most recently appearing as herself on Real Housewives of Atlanta and Dancing with the Stars.

    Behind the camera, she has directed episodes of Kenan & Kel, Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns and House of Payne, and BET’s Let’s Stay Together. Between gigs, the pop culture icon’s life has included theater, spoken word, music, speaking engagements, and simply being present to the point that she cannot go a day without someone stopping her to say, “When I was a kid, I wanted to be Tootie” or “You were my role model.”

    Flattered and blessed, after four decades in the business, Kim finally understands the role she has played onscreen and off as a successful, outspoken African-American woman. However, for as much as she’s been in the public eye, people have really never known her the way they think they have, and that’s because she, herself, spent most of her life figuring herself out. Now, at age 48, she is ready to set the record straight. She says, “It’s not that I’ve been misunderstood. It’s that I finally feel like I understand me enough to tell the life story that I’ve been asked to write for years.” It will be a chronicle of living, learning, and keen moments of self-discovery as she’s journeyed through the many facets and chapters of life. Fields found faith at age 14 and has found God to be right there every step of the way since then.

  • Racing To The Finish

    $26.99

    It was a minor crash at Michigan International Speedway in June 2016 that ended the day early for Dale Earnhardt Jr. What he didn’t know was that it would also end his driving for the year. He’d dealt with concussions before, but concussions are like snowflakes–no two are the same. And recovery can be brutal–and lengthy.

    As a third-generation driver in a family forever connected to the sport of stock-car racing, how could Dale Earnhardt Jr. sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else take their laps? It was one of the toughest seasons of his life–one that changed him forever.

    In this gripping narrative from one of professional sports’ most beloved figures, Dale Jr. shares stories from his journey: how his career and his injury have transformed him, how he made the decision to retire at the end of the 2017 season after eighteen years behind the wheel, and what lies ahead for him in the next chapter of his life. There’s no second-guessing and no regrets from Driver #88. He simply wants to go out on his own terms and make the rest of his life off the racetrack count. Junior says, “I don’t want these last races to be just about me but rather the people who made my success possible: my fans, the folks who pack the grandstands rain or shine, my teammates and crew members through the years, industry colleagues, track volunteers, friends, family, sponsors. They’ve all played a role. I couldn’t have done it without them.”

  • Sensing The Rhythm

    America’s Got Talent–Golden Buzzer Winner
    The inspiring true story of Mandy Harvey–a young woman who became deaf at age nineteen while pursuing a degree in music–and how she overcame adversity and found the courage to live out her dreams.

    When Mandy Harvey began her freshman year at Colorado State University, she could see her future coming together right before her eyes. A gifted musician with perfect pitch, she planned to get a music degree and pursue a career doing what she loved. But less than two months into her first semester, she noticed she was having trouble hearing her professors. In a matter of months, Mandy was profoundly deaf.

    With her dreams so completely crushed, Mandy dropped out of college and suffered a year of severe depression. But one day, things changed. Mandy’s father asked her to join him in their once favorite pastime–recording music together–and the result was stunningly beautiful. Mandy soon learned to sense the vibrations of the music through her bare feet on a stage floor and to watch visual cues from her live accompaniment. The result was that she now sings on key, on beat, and in time, performing jazz, ballads, and sultry blues around the country.

    Full of inspiring wisdom and honest advice, Sensing the Rhythm is a deeply moving story about Mandy’s journey through profound loss, how she found hope and meaning in the face of adversity, and how she discovered a new sense of passion and joy.

  • Smuggling Light : One Womans Victory Over Persecution Torture And Imprisonm

    $15.99

    North Korea is dark.

    Literally dark-most of its regions are too poor to afford electricity and other basic needs. Figuratively dark-its daily life is hidden from outsiders, its citizens reticent, and its propaganda vast. And spiritually dark-its ruler, Kim Jong-il, is both worshipped and feared and the gospel is squelched without question.

    Into this darkness, Esther walked.

    Growing up a Chinese-Korean, Esther wanted nothing to do with Christianity until a visit to an underground church in China flooded her with the mercy and power of the Spirit-and she was given an unusual call: be a missionary to North Koreans. But again, Esther wanted nothing to do with it, or rather, with them. Rude, filthy, and abusive, North Koreans seeking refuge in China were the worst of the worst. However, when Esther slipped inside North Korea for the first time and witnessed for herself the shocking conditions, she finally understood: they acted desperate, because they were.

    Esther gave her all to her mission. Although imprisoned and tortured by both North Korea and China, sometimes destitute and always in danger, having few resources and little time for family, for the past fifteen years Esther has faithfully spread aid and the gospel witness to North Koreans. Smuggling Light is her true tale of bravery, humility, and complete reliance on the mighty hand of God in one of the darkest nations in the world.

    For the first time, Kenneth Bae tells the full story surrounding his arrest and imprisonment in North Korea.

    Not Forgotten is a modern story of intrigue, suspense, and heart. Driven by his passion to help the people of North Korea, Bae moves to neighboring China to lead guided tours into the secretive nation. Six years later, after eighteen successful excursions in and out of the country, Ken is suddenly stopped at the border: he inadvertently brought his computer with him to the checkpoint-with a hard drive that reveals the true nature of his visits. He is arrested, brought to Pyongyang for further questioning, and sentenced to fifteen years of hard labor. His crime? Attempting to overthrow the North Korean government. He may never see his family again.

    Back in America, family and friends rally support by establishing a website and creating a petition for Ken’s release. Soon, major media outlets decry Ken’s unjust imprisonment, bringing needed attention that culminates in President Obama’s call for prayer on behalf of Ken at the 2014 National Prayer Breakfast. Meanwhile, Ken grapples with his new, solitary reality as a captive of one of the world’s most brutal governments.

    From the first harrowing moments of his ordeal to his release-and even today-Ken never wavers in his love for the North Korean people, even his captors. Not Forgotten is both a compelling narrative of one man’s dedication to serving the less fortunate and a modern testament of a missionary forced to rely solely on the God who sent him into dangerous territory. Readers will marvel at the rare, firsthand tour of life inside the most shrouded country on the planet, meeting its people, experiencing their daily lives, taking in the landscape, and encountering the tyranny of a totalitarian regime. With its combined spiritual and secular appeal, this never-before-told story is sure to captivate and inspire readers of all ages.

  • Forgiving My Daughters Killer

    $24.99

    Forgiveness has less to do with the person who harmed you than you think.

    On March 28, 2010, Kate and Andy Grosmaire received two pieces of news that would change their lives forever.

    The first was their worst nightmare: “Ann has been shot.”

    The second was the dumbfounding addendum: “Conor was the one who shot her.”

    Their nineteen-year-old daughter had been killed by her boyfriend, a young man who had lived with the family and had come to feel like part of it.

    In a beautiful, tragic testament to the liberating power of forgiveness, Kate Grosmaire finally tells the whole story of her daughter’s death at the hand of her boyfriend-and the stunning, deliberate forgiveness and help that Kate and her husband offered to the young man who shattered their world. That forgiveness meant not only telling him face-to-face that they forgave him but even working to reduce the time he would send behind bars.

    Part memoir, part spiritual testimony, Forgiving My Daughter’s Killer is the story of a family whose faith was put to the ultimate test and so found the capacity to do far more than they could have thought or imagined.

  • Woodlawn : One Hope One Dream One Way

    $16.00

    This riveting true story of courage, strength, and football at the height of racial tension in Birmingham, Alabama, inspired the motion picture “Woodlawn,” and tells the story of Coach Tandy Gerelds, his running back Tony Nathan, and a high school football game that healed a city.

    In the midst of violent, impassioned racial tensions in Birmingham, Alabama, new football coach, Tandy Gerelds, was struggling to create a winning football team at Woodlawn High School–one of the last schools in Birmingham to integrate. The team he was handed did not have the caliber of players he needed to win–until he saw Tony Nathan run.
    But Tony was African American and Coach Gerelds knew that putting him in as running back would be like drawing a target on his own back and the back of his soon-to-be star player. But Coach Gerelds saw something in Tony, and he knew that his decision to let him play was about more than football. It was about doing what was right for the school…and the city.
    And soon, the only place in the city where blacks and whites got along was on Coach Gerelds’s football team. With the help of a new school chaplain, Tony learned to look beyond himself and realized that there was more at stake than winning a game.
    In 1974, Coach Gerelds’s interracial team made Alabama history drawing 42,000 fans into the stadium to watch them play. It was this game that triggered the unity and support of the Woodlawn High School Colonels and that finally allowed a city to heal and taught its citizens how to love.

  • Through The Eyes Of A Lion

    $16.99

    What will you do when the unthinkable happens in your life?

    They called her Lenya Lion because of her ferocious personality and full head of hair, which had been wild and mane-like since birth. But they never expected their five-year-old daughter to suddenly go to heaven after an asthma attack five days before Christmas. How do you walk out of an emergency room without your daughter? In Through the Eyes of a Lion, Pastor Levi Lusko shares the eye-opening truth of the power of hope in a world that is often filled with pain, suffering, and loss. He says, “This is not a book about death. It’s about life, and through it I want you to see that God made you for a purpose. There is a wild and wonderful calling on your life, a microphone in your hands. Jesus wants you to look at the adventure of your life through his eyes, the eyes of a Lion.” Part memoir but all overtly instructive and deeply inspirational, Through the Eyes of a Lion gives readers the tools they need to live without fear in a world where nothing is certain. Chapter themes include:
    *Don’t rely on the naked eye
    *Remain planted in the house
    *No such thing as a wireless anchor
    *Let God use your pain
    *Cue the eagle

    What we do in life really does echo in eternity. You are destined for impact, and there’s not a moment to lose!

  • Gifted Mind : The Dr Raymond Damadian Story Inventor Of The MRI

    $17.99

    One man’s search for truth on a personal journey of invention and faith!

    Today, magnetic resonance imaging machines (MRIs) and similar technologies are saving lives in hospitals and clinics throughout the world. In 1969, this kind of technique was just an idea in the visionary mind of Dr. Raymond Damadian.

    As a young boy, he watched his grandmother die painfully from breast cancer. Dr. Damadian would eventually decide on a career in medical research and pioneer this field of amazing research. Although in 1971 his concept of detecting tumors through magnetic resonance imaging was widely met with skepticism, he became the first researcher to do a full-body scan of a human being in 1977 in order to see if there was cancer present. His life has been an incredible journey of discovery helping you learn:

    How his concept for cancer detection was inspired and developed
    Why faith became an integral part of his work
    Why he is a strong supporter of the creativity and freedom found in patents.

    From resourcefully creating his discoveries on a shoestring budget to a battle with the business behemoth known as G.E., learn how the exciting development of this technology led him to a self examination of his life and faith. What driving force is at the heart of what can arguably be called one of the greatest minds in the past 50 years and how does faith play a crucial role in his work?

  • I Choose Everything

    $1.00

    Two terminally ill Christians–one in England, one in South Africa–explore their experience of God’s love

    Jozanne Moss, in South Africa, and Michael Wenham, in Britain, have only met by email. Both struggle daily with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, a progressive and ultimately fatal condition, which destroys the body while leaving the mind fully alert. Both are married to remarkable people who support and care for them.

    Through Jozanne’s story they address the myth that pain and suffering are sent by dark powers, and that God is only responsible for the good bits. Michael explains: “We receive from God everything, both light and shade, praising him in every circumstance, seeing all of life as his gift from beginning to end.” The book is organized with chapters from Joazanne followed by a response and commentary from Michael, an Anglican minister. This allows him to address big questions such as “Why does a good God, if there is one, allow all this pain in his world?” Michael comments: “God has brought us together with the same illness and the same goal: to encourage and inspire others with the life God has purposed for us . . . We are not victims!” Their story is wonderfully uplifting, made radiant by the faith of the two authors.

    The purpose for which I have written this book is to show something of the persuasive power of the eloquent, dynamic effective preaching of Theophilos Brown Larimore. Much has been said regarding his winsomeness and popularity, but no effort, to my knowledge, has been made to evaluate and to translate his methods into useful material for the benefit of this and future generations.
