When his life comes apart, will the center hold?
Chris Walker has everything. A career, a beautiful fiancée, a promising ministry opportunity, and faith instilled in him from a young age. But when a revelation about his family comes to light at his grandmother’s funeral, Chris finds himself facing questions he didn’t even know he had about…well, everything.
Fighting a battle within and without those that don’t understand his sudden doubts, Chris seeks refuge in a weekend with his grandfather to ask the tough questions and sort through the issues where faith meets life and disillusionment collide with truth.
For those searching for the historic Christian faith that is relevant to life today, or for those who believe that a completely new faith is called for, Clear Winter Nights is a stirring story about faith, forgiveness, and the distinctiveness of Christianity. Through a powerful narrative and engaging dialogue, Trevin Wax shows the relevance of unchanging truth in an ever-changing world.

New research finds that Christians are less involved in spiritual conversations today than we were twenty-five years ago.
As society has changed, it seems we have become more uncomfortable talking with people about our faith. We are reluctant conversationalists. The reality is that many of our churches and communities are shrinking instead of growing. What can we do about this?
Don Everts, himself a reluctant witness, grew up assuming that spiritual conversations are always painful and awkward. But after falling into one spiritual conversation after another, he was surprised to discover that they aren’t. Don’s surprising―and sometimes embarrassing―stories affirm what Scripture and the latest research reveal: spiritual conversations can actually be a delight. Unpacking what God’s Word says about spiritual conversations and digging into the habits of eager conversationalists, Everts describes what we can learn from Christians who are still talking about their faith.
With original research from the Barna Group and Lutheran Hour Ministries on spiritual conversations in the digital age, this book offers fresh insights and best practices for fruitful everyday conversations.

The inspirational true story of God sparing a young girl from being murdered and later transforming her life, as seen on The 700 Club.
By age twelve, Mary Therese Hutchinson had survived not one, not two, but four attempts on her life. Even worse, the assailant and man who had sexually abused her for years was no outsider but a trusted family member. Forced to keep much of what she endured a secret, Mary came to believe everything she’d been taught about God was a fairy tale. After all, what loving God would allow such horrible things to happen to a little girl? Or if he was real, then God had forgotten about her.
By adulthood, Mary was outwardly a successful, beautiful young woman. But unresolved trauma and hate for her abuser led to a downward spiral of despair and self-destructive choices. A stranger’s prayers became the catalyst that started Mary on a journey of emotional healing and spiritual transformation. She now knew God was no fairy tale but a loving, merciful heavenly Father who, far from abandoning her, had miraculously intervened to save her young life.
But when her assailant reentered Mary’s life, she faced her greatest challenge yet. Could she extend to her abuser the same mercy God had so abundantly extended to her? The heart-pounding conclusion to this story is one no reader will ever forget. It all began with one woman’s choice to step out of her dark nightmare and onto the road to mercy.

The personal stories of forty-eight historic scientists and an overview of their contributions to their field and faith.
Responding to the wide-spread, modern cultural interest in-even obsession with-the agents of heaven and their role in our world, popular Bible teacher David Jeremiah provides an in-depth, biblical look at the hot topic of angels, giving a broad and thorough survey of Scriptural teaching illustrated by powerful quotes from prominent teachers Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C.S. Lewis, and others.
Effective leaders work very hard to succeed, but often at the cost of their own souls. They are challenged to keep themselves emotionally and spiritually healthy in order to survive success―to keep their humanity intact. This is the work within the work.
Stephen W. Smith helps leaders in the marketplace and in ministry set aside the life-draining values of power, fame, fortune, and position and instead explore the life-giving qualities of building character. In this book you will learn to:
Recognize and determine the inner and outer markers of success
Explore eight compelling virtues that every leader must possess
Use the principle of rhythm rather than chase the myth of balance
Recognize the limits of your own leadership
Discover how to thrive, not just survive
There is a better way to live than the craziness we experience in our driven world. Inside Job is your invitation to journey inside and do the work within your work.
“Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” ―Rainer Maria Rilke
Life is full of questions: questions about our identity, our relationships, our faith. Sometimes it seems like there are no easy answers. But our questioning can lead us on a journey into greater understanding and purpose.
Jeffrey Keuss says that asking good questions helps us to lead good lives. He takes us on a tour of Scripture to find insights from people who asked questions of God and others. From God asking Adam and Eve, “Where are you?” to the Samaritan woman asking Jesus for water, Live the Questions explores critical questions in Scripture and what they can teach us about doubt, faith, and uncertainty in our everyday lives.
Grappling with hard questions is necessary for us to form deeper faith commitments and discern who we are called to become. So don’t be afraid of the questions―live them.
