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.
Where is the life God promised us?
Life is busy. We live like slaves to our fast-paced, suffocating schedules. We spend our energy and time in triviality, relegating God to the background. He seems distant to us, and we resist the idea that God wants to give, say, and show us more; we dismiss it as a rumor. But Jesus calls us to a better way. Another dream- an unimagined future. Close the gap between what you hear about and what you see.
Rumors are filled with the same forward-thinking spirit that defines its authors, Jon Tyson, and Darren Whitehead. ?Louie Giglio, pastor, Passion City Church
Both challenging and encouraging, Rumors of God will reintroduce you to a God worth talking about. ?Gabe Lyons, author, The Next Christians, founder, Q, coauthor, UnChristian
This book invites us to find the rumors of God all around us. Read it, but be ready to be changed. ?Scot McKnight, author, One.Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow and Jesus Creed for Students
For those who are jaded by the church, or have become cynical about the power of the Gospel in our time, Rumors of God is a great antidote. ?Alan Hirsch, author, dreamer, activist (www.theforgottenways.org)
Foreword by Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Ill., and chairman of the board for the Willow Creek Association.
The irony: two upstart Aussies from tiny towns half a world away wind up leading high impact churches in two of the most significant cities in North America. Only God.
Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson are deep thinking Christ-followers with a bias for action in the world. A rare combination these days. They are both leaders and communicators, visionaries and “get stuff done for God” guys. Extremely rare.
I have had the privilege of working closely with Darren at Willow Creek Community Church for over 7 years. He is thoughtful, relationally intelligent and one of the hardest working young leaders I know.
In Rumors of God, Darren and Jon have somehow succeeded in slipping 3D glasses over our eyes. The results are that passages from scripture come alive in ways that will impact readers for a long time.
I salute the efforts of these young mates and pray that readers will be as stretched in their minds and hearts as I have been.
Readers will experience the power of having a vibrant life of prayer and relationship with God and discover the creative ideas to weave prayer into the fabric of their day.

It’s never too late.
Whether you’re a new Christian or you’ve walked the road for decades, it’s never too late to find the critical truths that make life make sense.
We often start out believing that common sense will be enough, that we’re prepared for the road ahead with our good values and quick thinking.
It doesn’t take long to learn otherwise. A broken friendship. An obsessive career. Financial distress. Even empty success. We come back to God, searching for insight, for hope. And He provides.
Nothing can replace studying the Bible. Best-selling author and pastor Charles Swindoll has spent decades studying its pages and teaching its precepts.
But if sixty-six books seem overwhelming, The Owner’s Manual for Christians is the perfect starting place: a biblical summary of the major truths that anchor the Christian life. From grace to freedom, these chapters walk the reader through the keys to a life well lived?drawn from the Creator of life itself.
Life is often confusing, but it does not have to be impossible. Read The Owner’s Manual for Christians and find hope for the road ahead.
Pastor-teacher John MacArthur helps readers understand Jesus’ parables and how they relate to the whole of His message.
Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told was ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so His people might comprehend His message about the kingdom of God clearly.
Master expositor and Bible commentator John MacArthur have spent a lifetime explaining the Word of God in clear and comprehensible terms. In Parables, he helps Christians understand the essential lessons contained in the most famous and influential short stories the world has ever known..
