The book that inspired the major History Channel special, “God Code,” shows there is more to the Bible than meets the eye—messages from God hidden for ages, now revealed by modern computer technology.
In God Code Timothy Smith reveals his quest over decades to understand the complex messages he discovered in an ancient Hebrew manuscript of the Bible–some of them applying specifically to him! His painstaking search has involved adventure and mystery, but instead of consulting ancient maps to find buried treasure, this hunt has relied on the data calculation power of modern technology. God Code shows how Scripture is more amazing than we ever dreamed…a unique, layered book that may even reveal the future of generations living today. In the companion History Channel series, the author travels across continents in search of artifacts missing since Bible times–clues to their location revealed in God Code.
“However one wishes to interpret the meaning and significance of the text, they may rest assured that the text on which Timothy Smith bases his interpretation has almost certainly been there for a very long time, since before the birth of Christ.”
—Eugene Ulrich, Ph.D., Department of Theology, University of Notre Dame

Firstborns are the natural movers, shakers, and leaders of the world. They can accomplish anything they set their minds to. They’re the high achievers, the benchmark setters, the business moguls, the concert violinists, the heads of the PTA. But if they’re out of balance, they can be overly perfectionistic, driven, and critical. They can become controllers (everything has to go their way) or pleasers (they exhaust themselves in meeting the demands of others).
Now available in trade paper, Born to Win identifies the qualities of firstborns . . . and there’s a catch. Just because someone is the firstborn child in the family doesn’t mean they’ll have a firstborn personality. They can be third in a group of four siblings and still have a firstborn personality! Dr. Kevin Leman reveals why.
He helps firstborns understand their natural advantages–while becoming aware of their weaknesses and learning how to sidestep them–for the highest level of personal success at home, at school, at work, and in relationships. And he helps those who live or work with firstborns to understand them better. This fun, informative, and practical book will keep readers engaged and provide many “aha!” moments.
Change a generation with something as simple as an invitation.
For many of us, inviting people into our lives and homes feels more like inviting judgment on our entertaining skills and stress on our already maxed-out schedules. But what if you knew that opening your front door had the power to radically change the world? To make an impact and leave a legacy with everyday invitations?
Jen Schmidt has set out to reframe how we think about hospitality and to equip us to walk a road of welcome in our daily lives. Jen knows that every time we choose open-door living—whether in our homes or by taking hospitality on the road just like Jesus—those we invite in get to experience the lived-out Gospel, our kids grow up in a life-lab of generosity, and we trade insecurity for connection.
Just Open the Door is a personal yes-you-can guide to offering the life-changing gift of invitation. Whether you’re a seasoned host looking for renewed inspiration or a nervous newbie not sure where to begin, these personal stories, practical ideas, and poignant insights will give you the confidence you need to see your home as the most likely location for changing the world around you, one open door at a time.
