The words we use can be so cruel. They can discourage a friend or family member, cut open the heart and destroy someone’s self-confidence—even ignite a fire and drive crowds to violence. And once they’re spoken, they can never be recalled. Words enter our ears and burrow themselves deep into our hearts … often never to be forgotten. It’s little wonder that the Bible instructs us to control our tongues. Inspired by James 3:1-12, and filled with 40 relevant stories and Scriptures, this book encourages believers to speak kindness, sharing words that heal and expressing God’s love at home, at work … everywhere!
Since 2005, the wildly popular Twilight saga has sold more than 42 million copies—20 million in 2008 alone—with translations into 37 different languages around the globe. Millions of teen girls are fanatical about these books. Vampire lit is hot. But why is that?
Kimberly Powers knows that at the core of every young woman’s heart is a longing to be truly, madly, deeply loved. And that’s what’s so compelling about the Bella / Edward story—the fantasy of a hero who is eternally attracted, fiercely protective, and passionately committed. Powers taps into this, using the vampire allusion to help girls explore what it is about the story that has captured their hearts. Weaving vampire lore with biblical truths and real-life stories, she helps girls move beyond the fantasy to discovery of the true Lover of their soul.
What does a transformed life actually look like?
In his follow-up to the critically acclaimed Imaginary Jesus, Matt Mikalatos tackles this question in an entertaining and thought-provoking way—with MONSTERS!!! While Christians claim to experience Christ’s resurrection power, we sometimes act like werewolves who can’t control our base desires. Or zombies, experiencing a resurrection that is 90 percent shambling death and 10 percent life. Or vampires, satiating ourselves at the expense of others. But through it all we long to stop being monsters and become truly human—the way Christ intended. We just can’t seem to figure out how.
Night of the Living Dead Christian is the story of Luther, a werewolf on the run, whose inner beast has driven him dangerously close to losing everything that matters. Desperate to conquer his dark side, Luther joins forces with Matt to find someone who can help. Yet their time is running out. A powerful and mysterious man is on their trail, determined to kill the wolf at all costs . . .
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Night of the Living Dead Christian is a spiritual allegory that boldly explores the monstrous underpinnings of our nature and tackles head-on the question of how we can ever hope to become truly transformed.
Why are many Christians often defeated? Because they pray so little. Why do most Christians see so few brought out of darkness to light by their ministry? Because they pray so little. Why are our churches simply not on fire for God? Because there is so little real prayer. We may be assured of this: The secret of all failure is our failure in secret prayer. This book explores, in depth: • God’s wonder at our lack of prayer • God’s incredible promises concerning those who do pray • God’s condition for providing signs • God’s desire for earnest prayer • God’s perspective on hindrances to prayer The Lord Jesus is as powerful today as ever before. The Lord Jesus is as anxious for men to be saved as ever before. His arm is not shortened that it cannot save, but He does not stretch forth His arm unless we pray more – and more genuinely. Prayer, real prayer, is the noblest, the sublimest, and the most stupendous act that any creature of God can perform. Lord, teach us how to pray.
“Elements: Four Priorities of the Modern Day Disciple” is a concise, down-to-earth discussion of the four core elements that drive Lighthouse Church. “Elements” explains how the foundational need for Truth, Worship, and Community supports the Mission of Jesus to reach the lost and make disciples.

And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied (Acts 19:6).
The Glory Within is about the glory of the new birth, the indwelling Spirit, and your call to right now access the life of God within you—through speaking in tongues.
And these signs will follow those who believe:
In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues (Mark 16:17).
Many Christians don’t realize the abundant, glorious benefits found in speaking in tongues. Realizing this gift brings you closer to God and your spiritual destiny in a variety of ways including:
Engaging the revelatory realm of mysteries
Building a capacity for God
Successful spiritual warfare
And many other spiritual realities
The lack of revelation of what you now possess and how to intimately access God may result in a less-than-fulfilling Christian experience and lifestyle. The Glory Within awakens your spiritual senses and inner spirit so you can become the person God created you to be. (more…)
