  • Defining Verse : Find Your Life’s Sentence Through The Lives Of 63 Bible Ch

    $19.99

    Scripture frequently sums up a man’s life in a single sentence. (Charles Spurgeon)

    Inspired by the great preacher Charles Spurgeon, Warren Wiersbe launched a personal study of the lives of prominent Bible characters. Interested in more than biographical facts, Wiersbe sought out the themes of each person’s life as reflected in the pages of scripture. How does the Bible summarize this person’s life? What is the key to understanding his or her character? How do I see my own life reflected in the life of this person?

    The Defining Verse takes you into the lives of 63 biblical men and women who encountered an extraordinary God. For each, Wiersbe identifies a scripture verse that sums up that individual’s life and then reflects on the lessons to be learned, both positive and negative. Not only will you be challenged by these examples, you will be stimulated to consider what your life sentence will be.

  • Saints And Scoundrels In The Story Of Jesus

    $16.99

    The story of Jesus includes all kinds of characters. Some see these people as mere examples to follow or to avoid, and some have only heard about them in Sunday school stories. But their interactions with Jesus reveal much more about the person of Jesus himself and the message he has for us. Saints and Scoundrels in the Story of Jesus tells the story of 10 people or groups of people who are integral to the story of Jesus told in the Gospels. Each chapter takes a character off the Sunday school felt board and reveals them as a three-dimensional person with desires, motivations, flaws, and limitations. They are more than examples-they show us a unique angle on the grace available through Jesus for sinners. Each chapter also offers challenging applications to the lives of readers.

  • When Life Doesnt Match Your Dreams

    – Rebekah
    – Rachel
    – and more

And they’ll come away with the confidence that ours is a faithful God who loves us and is forming us through our trials into the women he longs for us to be.

    Additional Info
    Jonah is famous for being a reluctant evangelist. But God had other plans!

    If we’re honest, we are also often very reluctant when it comes to telling others about Jesus. We can learn from God’s dealings with Jonah about how to be effective for the Lord, whom we love and want to serve. We can move from can’t and don’t to can and do.

    Like Jonah we need learn to trust his awesome power (chapter 1), experience his sovereign grace (chapter 2), fear his coming judgment (chapter 3) and share his gut-wrenching compassion (chapter 4). All this is perfectly revealed in Jesus, the divine Evangelist, and as we look to him and as the Holy Spirit fills our hearts with his evangelistic compassion, our hearts will sing with the melodic line of Jonah, Salvation comes from the LORD (Jonah 2 v 11) and our lives will erupt with the evangelistic enterprise that our cities so desperately need.

  • Messy People Participant Workbook (Student/Study Guide)

    $16.99

    Every life gets messy at times. Sometimes these messes are literal, like a house that would be easier to condemn than to clean. But sometimes they are intangible messes such as illness, conflict, depression, abuse, bankruptcy, divorce, and job loss. And these messes can be painful, hurting our hearts and our homes. But as we see in the Bible, God loves to use messy people! In this six-week study, we will dig into the lives of biblical heroes who were messy people just like us but who were used by God in powerful ways. Together we will examine the stories of five wonderful but messy people and one messy parable character: Rahab, the Prodigal Son, Josiah, Mary, David, and Daniel. From their stories, we will learn how God can use broken people, restore damaged hearts and relationships, give us power to handle our critics, and help us deal with the hard moments of life. Along the way we’ll discover that we don’t have to just endure messy lives but can actually learn to thrive with God’s guidance and help. In the hands of God, our messes can become His masterpieces! The participant workbook, to be used along with the study’s DVD, includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 10-15 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).

  • Elijah Participant Workbook (Student/Study Guide)

    $16.99

    Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain. Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, I have had enough (1 Kings 19:4). He needed spiritual stamina in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too! In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well-which was his ultimate legacy. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith. Best of all, his story will challenge us but not shame us, because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in every season. The participant workbook, to be used along with the study’s DVD, includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).

    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.

  • Eyewitness To Promise Abraham (Student/Study Guide)

    $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).

    8-Joseph And The Throne

    Additional Info
    God is very much interested in man. He is seeking to obtain the man after His own heart. Indeed, He is determined to provide for His only begotten Son a counterpart in man. And in relation to that end and purpose, there is to be found depicted in the Bible’s very first book the biographies of especially eight different persons; and in each one of these eight individuals God has worked into him one special quality or characteristic of His beloved Son Jesus Christ. By combining these particular eight qualities together, there emerges the man after God’s heart whom He shall give to His Son as the Beloved’s counterpart. For by putting these eight characteristics or qualities together, the result shall be the Bride of the Lamb of God.

    Now these eight individuals and their differing qualities or characteristics are as follows: Adam and the Tree of Life-even the life of God (in Christ), Abel and his sacrifice: a lamb, Enoch’s walking with God into heaven, Noah’s ark of abiding (in Christ), Abraham’s altars, Isaac’s wells of living water, Jacob’s testimonial pillars, and Joseph’s throne life. Those who possess these qualities shall constitute the Bride of the Lamb.

    May God soon obtain the Bride for His beloved Son!

    Notes

    Additional Info
    Do we have anything in common with the bad guys of the Bible?

    The sins of wrath, idolatry, and abuse of power are closer to us than we think. How do we guard against them? We learn not only by following moral exemplars-we also need to look at the warnings of lives gone wrong.

    In this fictionalized narrative, JR. Forasteros reintroduces us to some of the most villainous characters of Scripture. He shows us what we can learn from their negative examples, with figures such as Cain, Jezebel, King Herod, and even Satan serving as cautionary tales of sin and temptation. Forasteros vividly tells their stories to help us understand their motivations, and his astute biblical and cultural exposition points out what we often miss about their lives.

    We soon discover that we might have more in common with these characters than we would like to admit. But by the grace of God, we can avoid their mistakes and be freed from our own villainous tendencies. Take a fresh look at the scoundrels of Scripture, and find sound pastoral guidance here to walk the path of righteousness.

    Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer is a thought-provoking exposition of the political and religious developments in the kingdom of Judah during the reign of King Hezekiah, based on a close reading of biblical and extra-biblical sources and the insights from associated archaeological finds. Among the major discussions are: Hezekiah’s reform of the Israelite cult-the elimination of rural altars and the centralization of all worship in the Temple of Jerusalem, the introduction of literary prophecy and its social message into Judah, and Jerusalem’s deliverance during the Assyrian campaign against Judah in 701 BCE. Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer shows that the Age of Hezekiah was a key stage in the growth and transformation of Jerusalem into the Holy City we know today.

    Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer contains full quotation of ancient texts, as well as numerous maps and illuminating illustrations.

  • Woman Overwhelmed Participant Workbook (Student/Study Guide)

    $16.99

    As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed . . . not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant-filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy. In this six-week Bible study, Hayley DiMarco walks us through the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, who knew what it was like to be overwhelmed. As we explore Mary’s life-from the news that she would give birth to God’s Son to the day she witnessed his tragic death on the cross-we find ourselves on a journey from overwhelming joy to overwhelming sorrow and back again, learning along the way how to be consumed with the mission of God rather than the mission of me. Each week begins with an in-depth exploration of a part of Mary’s story, with the remaining days providing practical and biblical application related to a particular aspect of life that can make us feel overwhelmed. As we dig into Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments, Hayley shows us how to find freedom by becoming overwhelmed instead with who God is-learning to treasure in our hearts what we know about God so that we can hold onto faith even when it seems that all is lost. Get ready to discover how to experience the overwhelming grace and love of God! The participant workbook includes five days of lessons for each week, combining stories from Hayley, study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. Available components for the study, each available separately, include a Participant Workbook with five days of lessons per week, Leader Guide, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions (with closed captioning), and boxed Leader Kit containing one of each component.

  • 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.

This is not a reality we experience alone, but is one that a man after God’s heart experienced as well.

    A Heart Like His looks at this bond of mutual love and admiration between a man who was not unlike any of us and the one true God who is all good and all powerful. Beth Moore walks us through an exploration of David’s incredible life, drawing spiritual insights from a man who boldly fulfilled his divine destiny not merely by what he did, but who he loved and served.
