Here J. W. Alexander shows the importance and benefits of having regular family worship for Christian families. Though over 150 years old he is realistic on the amount of time which a normal family can have family worship which maybe only 5 to 10 minutes each time. This is a great read for fathers to encourage them to start family worship.
Thomas Watson (1620-1686) was Thomas Watson is one of the most famous Puritan preachers in history, and his writings during the 17th century are still read across the world today. He was an English, Nonconformist, Puritan preacher and author. He was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he was noted for remarkably intense study. Based on Philippians 4:11, “I have learned, in whatever state I am therewith to be content”, Watson considers the great dishonor done to almighty God by the sin of discontent. The doctrine of Christian contentment is clearly illustrated and profitably applied. The special cases where, through changes in providences, discontentment most commonly arises are examined and preservatives are applied to the soul. This is one of Watson’s most treasured works and shares equal billing with Jeremiah Burrough’s classic The Rare Jewel of Christian Continent. It was first published in a lithograph of a 19th-century edition, but the publishers were compelled to retype that work and publish it in an entirely new book so as to give an even broader readership
Suffering is inescapable in this world.
Jesus told us we would face perilous trials and that even our bodies would feel the effects of the Fall. For women dealing with chronic illness, most books offer quick-fix counseling or devotional verses taken out of context, helpful only for momentary encouragement.
For true and lasting comfort we must dig deeper into God’s Word and the context in which those much-used passages were written.
In Chronic Love, Brooke Bartz reveals a deeply raw and descriptive account of life with a chronic and debilitating illness, and she shares with readers how comfort and strength can be found through the Truth in God’s Word.
Specifically designed for women who daily battle chronic illness, Chronic Love’s goal is to provide solid Scriptural encouragement for the fight.
•Throughout human history, mankind’s greatest struggle has been our willingness to admit our need for God. (Psalm 14:1)
•Our failure to recognize our need for God has led to a deep spiritual sickness. (Psalm 14:2-3)
•Until we accept that we have this disease, we won’t recognize our need to find “The Cure.” (Matthew 5:3)
•In the section of Scripture known as “The Beatitudes”, Jesus lays out principles that work much like a doctor diagnosing cancer. By demonstrating the vast difference between the heart of God and the heart of man, He reveals both the depth of our spiritual sickness, as well as the folly of trying to live without God. Like a person who is sick with cancer, it is not until you receive your diagnosis, and accept the fact you have a terminal disease, that you become willing to take the steps necessary to find “The Cure” for your condition. This book explores an important spiritual truth: Once we accept the reality of God’s diagnosis, the only hope of getting better is “The Cure” that Jesus offers!

THE THRILLING #1-BESTSELLING MEMOIR BY THE ADVENTURE LEGEND AND STAR OF NBC’S RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS
Bear Grylls has always sought the ultimate in adventure. Growing up on a remote island off of Britain’s windswept coast, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age. Inevitably, it wasn’t long before the young explorer was sneaking out to lead all-night climbing expeditions.
As a teenager at Eton College, Bear found his identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts. These passions led him into the foothills of the mighty Himalayas and to a karate grandmaster’s remote training camp in Japan, an experience that soon helped him earn a second-degree black belt. Returning home, he embarked upon the notoriously grueling selection course for the British Special Forces to join the elite Special Air Service unit 21 SAS—a journey that would push him to the very limits of physical and mental endurance.
Then, disaster. Bear broke his back in three places in a horrific free-fall parachuting accident in Africa. It was touch and go whether he would walk again, according to doctors. However, only eighteen months later, a twenty-three-year-old Bear became one of the youngest climbers to scale Mount Everest, the world’s highest summit. But this was just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures. . . .
Known and admired by millions as the star of Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls has survived where few would dare to go. Now, for the first time, Bear tells the story of his action-packed life. Gripping, moving, and wildly exhilarating, Mud, Sweat, and Tears is a must-read for adrenaline junkies and armchair explorers alike.
