Few would dispute the fact that entertainment – or more specifically, the entertainment community – influences our society in a big way. But how many understand the thread of evolutionary philosophy that runs through movies, television, and books?
Popular speaker Carl Kerby has researched this point for years and challenges audiences all over the country to become better informed about the agenda that permeates our entertainment choices. In Remote Control, he highlights Hollywood icons that in some way peddle a Darwinian concept:
*Are you aware that even Gilligan, the Skipper’s goofy “little buddy,” discussed ancient “caveman” ideas?*
*Did you know the campy cult classic Creature from the Black Lagoon promoted evolutionary concepts?*
*Is a movie thriller like Jurassic Park just mindless fun?*
*Do classic children’s cartoons pass the evolution test?*

What does the Bible say about periods?
The average woman has 500 periods in her lifetime. And whether yours are mildly annoying, utterly debilitating or emotionally complicated, most of us have at one time or another asked: Why?!
This warm, light-hearted, real, honest and at times surprising book gives a biblical perspective on menstruation, as well as a whole lot more. Beginning with periods, Rachel Jones takes readers on an adventure in theology, weaving together wide-ranging reflections on the nature of our bodies, the passing of time, the purpose of pain, and the meaning of life.
One thing is for sure: you’ve never read a Christian book quite like this one.
Whether you’re in need of hope and help, or are just downright curious, you’ll be refreshed and encouraged by this book. As Rachel puts it, “Whoever you are, my aim is that you reach the end of this book celebrating who God has made you, how God has saved you, and the fact that he speaks liberating and positive truth into all of life’s experiences (even periods)”.
If “Who am I?” is the question you’re asking, Rachel Jankovic doesn’t want you to “find yourself” or “follow your heart.”
Those lies are nothing to the confidence, freedom, and clarity of course that come with knowing what is actually essential about you. And the answer to that question is at once less and more than what you are hoping for.
Christians love the idea that self-expression is the essence of a beautiful person, but that’s a lie, too. With trademark humor and no nonsense practicality, Rachel Jankovic explains the fake story of the Self, starting with the inventions of a supremely ugly man named Sartre (rhymes with “blart”). And we–men and women, young and old–have bought his lie of the Best Self, with terrible results.
Thankfully, that’s not the end of our story, You Who: Why You Matter and How to Deal with It takes the identity question into the nitty gritty details of everyday life. Here’s the first clue: Stop looking inside, and start planting flags of everyday faithfulness. In Christianity, the self is always a tool and never a destination.

Down Where My Love Lives is a bittersweet yet triumphant love story—a tale of one man’s journey through the darkness of despair and into the light of hope. Together in one volume, read Dylan and Maggie’s love story in bestselling author Charles Martin’s debut novel and its sequel.
The Dead Don’t Dance: In a sleepy rural town in South Carolina, Dylan and Maggie Styles are a young couple in love, preparing eagerly for the birth of their first son. But events take a tragic turn in the delivery room, and their child is delivered stillborn. When Maggie hemorrhages and slips into a coma, Dylan slips into what can only be described as a walking coma, holding vigil at his beloved wife’s bedside.
Usually tough and self-reliant, an outdoorsman and a farmer, Dylan finds that everything he has known is suddenly thrown into doubt. Refusing to give up on Maggie’s recovery, a devastated Dylan takes a job as an English professor in order to pay for Maggie’s medical bills. Dylan connects with his students despite himself and offers hope to others amid his own disappointment and grief. As Dylan waits for some change in Maggie’s condition, he reflects on his life and hers.
