Mary Batchelor's The Children's Bible In 365 Stories
With more than a million copies sold, this classic Scripture provides an ageless Bible story for every day of the year.
"An imaginative arrangement, preserving the on-going interest of a serial . . . The illustrations are excellent . . . and will hold the listener's eye if the book is being read aloud . . . This selection provides a built-in continuity which other collections lack."—Church Times
"Written in a lively, easily understood style which still retains the dignity of the original . . . The luminous artwork is realistic, expressive and well-researched in detail."—School Library Journal
"Many children's books retell Bible stories. This is one of the best for its factual, sensitive and imaginative approach. The stories are allowed to speak for themselves in a panorama of scripture from Genesis to Revelation, and each is beautifully and imaginatively illustrated. [Here is] storytelling par excellence, clear, uncomplicated, concise, superlative."—Churchman
"The selections are just the right length . . . After using this book for several months, I can enthusiastically recommend it for families with young children."—Christian Home and School
Oswald Chambers' My Utmost For His Highest
Oswald Chambers, a Scotsman who converted to Christianity in his teens under the ministry of Charles Spurgeon, has been affecting Christians with his devotional words since My Utmost for His Highest was first published in 1935. This acknowledged classic contains 365 daily readings that take heady doctrine and make it practical, realistic, and intensely personal. With humor and humility, Chambers speaks plainly to the common man struggling with devotion to Christ in daily living. Worldly cares and self-serving desires begin to lose their appeal as Chambers aides the reader in transforming his mind by viewing life through the instruction of God's Word. Richard Halverson, former chaplain of the United States Senate, attests to this: "no book except the Bible has influenced my walk with Christ at such deep maturing levels." This is Chambers's chief desire, directing the reader to "shut out every other consideration and keep yourself before God for this one thing only--My Utmost for His Highest... determined to be absolutely and entirely for Him and for Him alone." --Jill Heatherly
"With the exception of the Bible, no book has had as profound an effect on my life as My Utmost for His Highest. My wife introduced it to me before we were married, and it has been a part of my daily diet from the first reading." --Charles Stanley
R. Kent Hughes' Disciplines of a Godly Man
This inspiring and best-selling book has long been speaking to the hearts of men, and its words continue to be highly relevant. Using biblical wisdom, engaging illustrations, practical suggestions for daily living, and personal study questions, Kent Hughes offers hard-hitting discussion on major areas of Christian manhood: marriage, fatherhood, friendship, purity, integrity, leadership, prayer, ministry, and more.
"Discipline is a subject about which the Scriptures say much-but contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills a gaping void with this superb volume. . . . If there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it into a blazing passion for godly discipline." John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
Phillip Telfer's What Wouldn't Jesus Do?
"Phillip's approach to media choices is fresh and biblical and is an extension of what I believe the Holy Spirit is saying to the church in this day and age. The book is well written, draws you in and leaves you with a heartfelt passion to allow Jesus to guide your heart in what you watch, read and listen too. Phillip reminds us that God's holiness is attractive and practical and liberating" David Cuff, Pastor, Calvary Chapel MId-Valley, Encino, California
"Let's face it; media is having a severe negative effect in the church today. Phillip's book uses relevant stories backedup by scripture to equip us to make better choices concerning our use of media. The book serves as a great family devotional or could be used in youth group settings. What Wouldn't Jesus Do is a timely message that addresses a seriously neglected problem in the church today." Bill Menner, Pastor, Calvary Chapel Quad Cities, Rock Island, Illinois
Max Lucado's Cure For The Common Life
"Sweet spot." Golfers understand the term. So do tennis players. Ever swung a baseball bat or paddled a Ping-Pong ball? If so, you know the oh-so-nice feel of the sweet spot. Life in the sweet spot rolls like the downhill side of a downwind bike ride. But you don't have to swing a bat or a club to know this. What engineers give sports equipment, God gave you-- A zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. He tailored the curves of your life to fit an empty space in his jigsaw puzzle. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot.
Philip Yancy's Finding God In Unexpected Places
An Atlanta slum. A pod of whales off the coast of Alaska. The prisons of Peru and Chile. The plays of Shakespeare. A health club in Chicago. For those with eyes to see, traces of God can be found in the most unexpected places. Yet many Christians have not only missed seeing God, they’ve overlooked opportunities to make him visible to those most in need of hope.
The Visual Bible: Acts is a dramatization that uses the actual scriptures, word for word, from the New International Version. Journey with the physician Luke (Dean Jones) as he tells the story of the danger, struggles, and triumph that mark the birth of the Christian church.
