Shame Interrupted: How God Lifts the Pain of Worthlessness and Rejection

FREE BOOK: Shame Interrupted 
Edward T. Welch 


No More Hiding  

Shame controls far too many of us. Worthless, inferior, rejected, weak, humiliated, failure...it all adds up to wishing we could get away from others and hide. We know what shame feels like. The way out, however, is harder to find. Time doesn't help, neither does confession, because shame is just as often from what others do to you as it is from what you have done. But the Bible is about shame from start to finish, and, if we are willing, God's beautiful words break through.


Look at Jesus through the lens of shame and see how the marginalized and worthless are his favorites and become his people. God cares for the shamed. Through Jesus you are covered, adopted, cleansed, and healed.

Overwhelmed: Winning the War against Worry

 FREE BOOK: Overwhelmed
Perry Noble   


Stressed out? Anxious? Overwhelmed? Good news—you’re not alone! 

No one ever said life was going to be easy. Between financial struggles, marital issues, health scares, and the regular, run-of-the-mill problems of everyday life, it’s easy to feel weighed down and trapped by your circumstances. In times like these, it’s tempting to just throw in the towel and quit. Well, don’t do it!

Perry Noble has stood at the edge of the abyss himself, and in Overwhelmed, he shares the keys to unlocking the chains of anxiety and despair once and for all. Building on the premise that when we shift our focus from our circumstances to Christ, everything changes, Perry walks readers through a life-altering plan for overcoming stress, worry, depression, and anxiety so we can be free to enjoy the abundant, joy-filled lives we were created for.

God knows we’re frustrated. He knows we’re tired. He knows we’re struggling. But He also knows how things are going to turn out. He is greater than anything you are going through . . . so don’t give up on God. After all, He’s never given up on you.

Working Out What God Has Worked In: Living From the Overflow

By Ryan Sturgis 


God never intended for you to live life apart from Him. You were created to live in communion with God, and it is in communion with God where you realize your life's full potential. God wants to work in your life to heal you from past hurts, and help you to be the person you were created to be.

The fruit of this relationship is what God wants to show the world - because it is in bearing much fruit that you bring glory to your Heavenly Father. Living a life that shines bright in dark times is challenging – until you realize that God never intended for you to do it from your own strength. He wants to shine through you!

Working Out What God Has Worked In is what you were called to do. It is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. You must work out the salvation that God has worked into your heart. However, there is no striving, or performance. No works. Just peace that comes from living a life totally directed and empowered by God.

This isn't about more effort or working harder. It's about learning how to cooperate with what God is already doing in your life – and expressing externally what God is doing internally.

Fully Alive: A Biblical Vision of Gender That Frees Men and Women to Live Beyond Stereotypes

FREE BOOK: Fully Alive    
Dr. Larry Crabb (Author)  


What makes a man masculine? A woman feminine? Did God design the two genders so differently? If so, why? The answers to these questions will free women and men to gladly embrace all that it means to be fully alive as gendered bearers of God's image who can profoundly impact others for good by the way they relate.

Author and psychologist Dr. Larry Crabb presents a biblically grounded understanding of gender uniqueness. His illustration of a bridge of connection shows how the two genders can relationally come together in God-revealing harmony as they celebrate their God-designed uniqueness.

Readers will discover that God created male and female to relate in gender-specific ways to make a difference in others by displaying God's relational character. Crabb clearly shows men and women what it means to live fully alive as feminine women and masculine men.

Journey on the Hard Side of Miracles

Dr. Steven Stiles, Steve Gregg  


Are miracles for real? What does the Bible reveal about their purpose? Could there even be something miraculous about miracles themselves? Whatever you consider miracles to be, the events in this one of a kind adventure actually happened.

Venture back to the international “Jesus Movement” of the 1970’s and consider some of the ways in which God changed the lives of a generation of young Christians. This thought provoking story unfolds as you wander across America with a humble band of “Jesus People” traveling in old, unreliable buses.

God’s mercy and provision is no sooner revealed than challenging events begin to change the course of the rider’s lives. Deep into their difficult journey of faith, they know they must never turn back.

The young travelers find that surprising miracles are not always what they first appear to be, and this discovery leads them to embrace an unforgettable lesson:

- There is a reason to listen to the Shepherd.
- There is a reason to stay close.

“This book is an intriguing and delightful read that comes off quite differently than many other Christian books I have read. This book isn't going to offer you simplistic ideas about seeing miracles. It doesn't tell trite success stories or even suggest how to be successful. It is a true story of a bunch of average young people who, wanted to follow God, and found themselves in incredible circumstances.”

Hadassah: One Night With the King (Esther)




Bestselling author Tommy Tenney expands the extraordinary story of Esther like no novelist has done before. Both a thriller and a Jewish woman's memoir, Hadassah takes readers to ancient Persia (now known as Iraq), into the inner sanctum of the palace and back out into the war zones of battle and political intrigue.

This gripping drama of a simple peasant girl chosen over many more qualified candidates to become Esther, Queen of Persia, captures the imagination and fires the emotions of men and women alike.

"Exciting and insightful, Hadassah is more than the retelling of a Bible story. It is a genuine romance novel." -- In the Library Reviews

"dazzling skill with character brings the story to life. historical details are amazing. Esther's character echoes into the modern day." -- Rambles.net

Confessions of a Transformed Heart - an Interactive eBook with Discussion Questions

Nancy D. Sheppard 


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!

Surprised by Suffering: The Role of Pain and Death in The Christian Life


Info: http://bit.ly/RC-Sproul   

The problem of suffering is often raised by those who question the goodness or the power of God. In this book, newly revised and expanded, R.C. Sproul provides biblical answers to the questions all of us ask about suffering and addresses some of the many unbiblical conclusions that are put forth today. In the end, he shows that suffering is not outside the realm of God's providence and His good purposes.

As an oncologist, I have the privilege of caring for people as they 'walk through the valley of the shadow of death.' In such times, people of faith find themselves faced with the most troubling questions of human existence, namely those raised by suffering and death. In 'Surprised by Suffering' R.C. Sproul concisely and sensitively affirms what I believe to be the three critical truths we need to grasp in order to preserve through suffering and death:

First, the inevitable and vocational nature of death/suffering; second, God's sovereign redemptive purposes in suffering; and finally, the certainty of eternal life in perfect fellowship with Him and our fellow believers. I was delighted to learn of this book's republication, and my reading of the manuscript reaffirmed why we do not grieve as those who have no hope.

What on Earth is Glory?: A Practical Approach to a Glory-filled Life

ONE BUCK BOOK: What on Earth is Glory?
Paul Manwaring (Author), Bill Johnson (Foreword) 


Preachers often quote this majestic promise in describing the consummation of history, the restoration of all things at the end of time. But few seek to uncover the passion of God in this promise: He wants us to know His glory, and He wants us to know it here on earth.

What on Earth Is Glory? is one man's journey into this desire of God. From Mt. Sinai to the Cross, from a solitary confinement cell to the snowboarding slopes of Mammoth Lakes, from fathers and mothers to sons and daughters, from time to eternity, Paul Manwaring traces the revelation of God’s glory, uncovering the patterns of His divine design and purpose in all things, and inviting others to join him in making the audacious request Moses made millennia ago: “Show me Your glory.”

Review
I am in mild and increasing shock over this book I have just browsed. This man has been gripped by the glory of God and thus has a grip on it to an extent I have not witnessed before. I recently heard an oral presentation of its contents and experienced firsthand its powerful impact. Now my head is spinning with excitement as I try to assess its potentially massive effect on the world in the next years for decades to come. May the reader run through it hilariously, return and walk through it slowly, and return again and again to drink from its pages. ---- Jack Taylor, President Dimensions Ministries

This unusual book unveils the sum total of God s attributes His glory but shows you, in a readable and practical way, how to bring glory to God in your own life here on Earth. This book should teach you to be more like Jesus and make you want to bring more glory to Him. ---- R. T. Kendall, Former Minister, Westminster Chapel

About the Author

Paul Manwaring is on the senior leadership team at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and oversees Global Legacy, Bethel s apostolic relational network. He lives to see the secular/sacred dividing line erased in lives and organizations. Paul spent 19 years in senior prison management in England, is a registered general and psychiatric nurse, and holds a management degree from Cambridge University.
