The Bible - God

Be the Man God has called you to be—spend time with Him in his Word.

Celebration Of Discipline – Richard Foster

Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline has helped more than a million seekers discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace and a deeper understanding of God. Foster provides a wealth of examples demonstrating how these disciplines can become part of our daily activities, and how they can help us shed our superficial habits and bring the abundance of God into our lives.

The Cure: What If God Isn’t Who You Think He Is And Neither Are You? – Bruce McNicol, Bill Thrall, John S. Lynch

The Cure gives the diagnosis of this century's religious obsession with sin-management. It has poisoned the church, obscuring the original Good News and sending millions away wounded, angry and cynical, from nearly any organized expression of faith. The Cure offers an authentic experience in Christ that frees some from a self-rewarded righteousness, and others from a beaten down striving for a righteousness they can never seem to attain. The Cure infuses a relational theology of grace and identity, which alone can heal, free and create sustainable, genuine, loving, life-giving communities.

You Were Born For This – Bruce Wilkinson

Do you believe that if God still works miracles, He only works them through a select group of people - not you? Then it's time to discover the truth. You were created to help others experience personal miracles on a regular basis. You were born to accomplish God's work by His power. In You Were Born for This, Bruce Wilkinson explores life-changing questions such as: Why do so few people experience miracles? What does it mean to be sent on a miracle mission? And, how can anyone partner with God to deliver miracles to others? You will learn how to make a lifestyle of predictable miracles your new normal. Because when people ask God to accomplish the miraculous through them, things change. Relationships. Finances. Families. Spiritual lives. Soon the extraordinary becomes the everyday, and God showing up in supernatural ways is no longer something to wish for - it is the life God intended you to live

Velvet Elvis: Repainting The Christian Faith – Rob Bell

Pastor Bell offers original and refreshingly personal perspectives on what Christianity is truly all about in Velvet Elvis. A vibrant voice for a new generation of Christians—the most recognizable Christian leader among young adults—Rob Bell inspires readers to take a fresh look at traditional questions of faith.

Mere Christianity – C.S. Lewis

In the classic Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, the most important writer of the 20th century, explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis’ legendary broadcast talks during World War Two from his three previous books The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith

The Life You’ve Always Wanted – John Ortberg

You can live a deeper, more spiritual life right where youare. An expanded edition offers ith a new chapter on prayer and discussion questions. The heart of Christianity is transformation—a relationship with God that impacts not just our spiritual lives but every aspect of living. John Ortberg calls readers back to the dynamic heartbeat of Christianity—God’s power to bring change and growth—and reveals both the how and why of transformation. With a new chapter on prayer and added discussion questions, this expanded edition of The Life You’ve Always Wanted offers modern perspectives on the ancient path of the spiritual disciplines. But this is more than just a book about things to do to be a good Christian. It’s a road map toward true transformation that starts not with the individual but with the object of the journey—Jesus Christ.

Waking The Dead – John Eldredge

Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” That’s the offer of Christianity, from God himself. Jesus touched people, and they changed: the blind had sight, the lame walked, the deaf heard, the dead were raised. To be touched by God, in other words, is to be restored, to be made all God means us to be. That is what Christianity promises to do―make us whole, set us free, bring us fully alive. Waking the Dead—newly revised and updated for these trying times—reveals the secret of finding that life, of identifying the fierce battle over our hearts and of embracing all that God has in store.
