Why were stone jars used in Cana when the rest of the ancient world used clay vessels? Why did Jesus heal the crippled man instantly at the pool of Bethesda but tell the blind man to wash in the Pool of Siloam? Why did Jesus talk about the gates of Hades specifically at Caesarea Philippi? Why did Jesus mock the religious teachers and Pharisees for sitting in the Moses’ seat? Books on Biblical archaeology are often written (a) as a reference source for biblical, theological, and apologetic studies, (b) to provide a deeper appreciation of the Biblical world, or (c) to let you know that the stories of the Bible are neither fictional nor allegorical. The goal of this book is none of these. The goal of this book is to use Biblical archaeology to authenticate the biblical narratives in the Gospel era. In every chapter, complex topics are made easy to understand so that everyone can lay hold of it. In every chapter, as we dig into the ruins and the rubble, the stones reveal to us more about the Rock of our salvation, Jesus Christ.
The revered teacher and bestselling author of such classic Christian works as Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis here offers wisdom and lessons that illuminate our private dialogue with God—prayer—in this collection drawn from the breadth of his writings.
C. S. Lewis’s insights on Christianity and his reflections on Christian life continue to guide us more than fifty years after his death. How to Pray showcases Lewis’s enduring wisdom on prayer and its place in our daily lives.
Cultivated from his many essays, articles, and letters, as well as his classic works, How to Pray provides practical wisdom and instruction to help readers nurture their spiritual beliefs and embrace prayer in all its forms. While many people would like to speak to God, they often don’t know how to begin. Lewis guides them through the practice, illuminating the significance of prayer and why it is central to faith.
A welcome addition to the C. S. Lewis canon, How to Pray offers a deeper understanding of our personal tradition of prayer, our faith, and what is means to be a Christian.

The nature of the relationship between the Spirit of God and the Word of God has been debated among believers for centuries. Is the Spirit present wherever and whenever the Word is preached?
Ralph Cunnington explores this and in particular the narrow historical theological question of what the Protestant Reformers, in particular John Calvin, actually taught on this topic. With careful and incisive scholarship, and writing that is both clear and cogent, we travel through this question.
Normally, Wes Grayson would have been attracted to the striking woman with the camera. But this woman has clearly been stalking Amy, his adoptive daughter and the center of his life. And a threat to Amy is a threat to Wes. Laney Fields has no desire to threaten anyone, just a longing to see the child she’d brought into the world six years ago and then been forced to release for adoption. But when she learns that Amy’s adoptive mother has died, Laney becomes determined to play a part in her daughter’s life. Between a man and woman torn by past losses, present fears, and the paradox of their growing fascination for each other, stands one small child. She could be the object of distrust that will drive them apart or the agent of faith in God that can bring them together.
Join pastor and bestselling author Charles Swindoll as he explores the stories of 13 biblical hidden figures whose lives have remained in the shadows of history for long enough.
Somehow life has taught us poorly. We’re trained to think that the most significant people are star athletes, actors, and musicians–the ones we applaud, those whose autographs we seek, or those who have worldly fame.
But Swindoll teaches us that most often, the people really worth noting are those who turn from a ‘nobody’ into a ‘somebody’ but never receive credit. Fascinating Stories from Forgotten Lives reminds us of a core truth: success in God’s kingdom and in the church depends upon faithful people the public rarely knows.
