Christians should have the answers, shouldn’t they? Depression affects many people both personally and through the ones we love. Depression is not new though, indeed the “Prince of Preachers” C.H. Spurgeon struggled with depression and talked openly about it. Here Zack Eswine draws from Spurgeon’s experiences to encourage us. What Spurgeon found in his darkness can serve as a light in our own darkness. This is not a self-help guide, but rather “a handwritten note of one who wishes you well.”

“An Honest, Well-Experienced Heart” introduces us to the life and writings of a Puritan preacher and author John Flavel (1627–1691). In his brief, introductory biography, Adam Embry discusses Flavel’s background, ministry, and theology of keeping the heart, which, for Flavel, “is the great business of a Christian’s life.” Centuries ago, Flavel wrote, “Above all other studies in the world, study your own hearts.” Embry guides us through forty-two short passages from Flavel’s writings that acquaint us with this dedicated Puritan minister’s piety and help us see the importance of this great business of keeping and managing our hearts.

This is your Playbook for life.
In life, you’re going to get tackled, intercepted, or end up in the wall. So how do you prepare and be ready when life slams you unexpectedly? Maybe your struggle is with your finances, your relationships, your job, or perhaps you just hope to gain an understanding of some of the basics about God, salvation, and what your purpose is in life. If so, the Game Plan for Life Bible, NIV will reveal God’s perspectives in these areas in a practical, engaging way and provide the tools you need to create a solid, God-honoring game plan for your life.
The notes that lead you to the Bible’s answers on your toughest questions are based on a national survey that former NFL coach and current NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs commissioned. This research targeted the everyday life issues that men struggle with most. He may have Super Bowl rings and NASCAR Cup championship trophies to his credit, but Coach Gibbs believes that, by turning to the Bible in times of failure and adversity, he has learned about true success. Written specifically for the “average Joe”, Joe Gibbs’ notes will enlighten, encourage and inspire you as you strive to build a game plan for your life.
• Key articles from well-known experts in the areas of God, creation, finances, relationships, career, vocation and other topics of interest to men.
• Devotions from Joe Gibbs that help you to learn from the Coach himself.
• Character studies of Bible characters who actually followed God’s Game Plan—and how you can follow it, too.
• Book introductions for every book of the Bible.
“Winning the game of life is like winning in NASCAR or the NFL—if you don’t have the right game plan, you won’t succeed. Like a lot of guys, I tried many “game plans.” None led me to true success and a couple ended in disaster. Not until I turned to the Bible did I gain the insights of God’s game plan for my life and experience true, eternal success. Written for the ‘average Joe’ like me, I’m convinced the Game Plan for Life Bible will help you if you’re serious about developing a successful game plan for your life.” – Joe Gibbs
Forever change the way you look
at the Bible . . . and your own life
Have you ever read the Bible only to come away confused? Ever wondered if God actually had you in mind when He began telling His story?
Though life may not be going according to your plan, God has another one, far better than you can imagine. From Genesis to Revelation, experience His invitation to get you dancing with joy.
In 66 Love Letters Larry Crabb offers a fresh, relational look at Scripture:
“When you finish reading my first love letter to you, I want you to realize that I never underestimated how thoroughly you’d mess up your life or how painfully you would struggle and suffer, and I don’t want you to underestimate your failures or struggles either. They’re all part of the story I’m telling. “But neither have I underestimated my determination or ability to enter both the mess you’ve made and the pain you feel, then turn everything around. I can, and I will make everything good again. Never underestimate me.”
Larry’s intimate conversation with God asks deeply honest questions such as:
- “God, what is it you wanted me to see in Obadiah?”
- “And what’s up with Leviticus? Is there anything there for me?”
- “This one verse in Galatians has always frustrated me. Why is that?”
- “The way you wrote Revelation makes it difficult to understand—why didn’t you just describe what will happen in a straightforward way?”
Listen to the story of God unfold through these chapters, and you’ll find not only His redeeming love but His plan and provision designed especially for you.
In a mother’s land of milk and honey, the milk is often split and the honey is usually smeared all over the face of the baby in his high chair. Linda Vujnov has been there and knows exactly what it feels like. As she recounts the continuing adventures of parenting her four children, Maddy, Zack, Ty, and Carson, she offers a quirky, down-to-earth perspective on life for mothers who need to be reminded that God’s grace is always there, even when things don’t work out exactly as you had originally planned. Spilt Milk is a collection of brief, hilarious stories mixed with biblically-based applications that will encourage busy mothers in their spiritual journey. Each chapter includes a corresponding Scripture verse intended to support the lesson learned from the experience. Written by a Gen-X mom, these stories remind us that, even in the midst of the questions, the craziness, the wonder of raising kids, and the joy of being a wife, God is right there alongside us to help us cope with life’s little messes and mix-ups.
