Many people have an incorrect concept of God as an angry taskmaster, which hinders them from coming to Him and receiving what Jesus died to purchase for them. Because God is actually full of love, He offers each person salvation, healing, deliverance, peace, and every other good thing listed in His Word. In BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE, Gloria Copeland shows readers how to embrace God's goodness and learn to trust Him with every area of their lives. She confirms, "Only by placing our lives in His hands can we open the way for Him to save us, and bless us, and work through us," generating lives of faith, hope, and confidence.

Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn't chase. You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path. In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture, a blessed and audacious act that left no regrets: “Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it” (2 Samuel 23:20 -21). Unleash the lion chaser within!

Ordering Your Private World
By Gordon MacDonald

One of the great battlegrounds of the new century is within the private world of the individual.The values of our Western culture incline us to believe that the busy, publicly active person in ministry  is also the most spiritual.

Tempted to give imbalanced attention to the public world at the expense of the private, we become involved in more programs, more meetings. Our massive responsibilities at home, work, and church have resulted in a lot of good people on the verge of collapse.

In this timely update of his classic Ordering Your Private World, Gordon MacDonald equips a new generation to live life from the inside out, cultivating the inner victory necessary for public effectiveness.

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.

Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.

This little book encourages Christian believers to wake up, be alert and not waste time: “time holds priceless opportunities to make something of ourselves or to serve someone else.” Wasting time includes living with unforgiveness, wishful thinking, procrastination, and self-centeredness instead of recognizing “seasons” such as child-rearing; preparing for the future; making right choices in using our opportunities.

From childhood on, something or Someone has called us on a journey of the heart.  It is a journey full of intimacy, adventure, and beauty - but like any fairy tale it is also fraught with more than a little danger.  To ignore this whispered call is to become one of the living dead who carry on their lives divorced from their most intimate selves, their heart.  The Sacred Romance calls to us in our fondest memories, our greatest loves, our noblest achievements, even our deepest hurts.  The reward is worth the risk.  God Himself longs for us, if we are but willing . . .

Running life’s race with intentionality and grace requires developing resilience — the courage and ability to get up when you fall, to finish what you start, to persevere in adversity, to push yourself to your fullest potential, and  and to keep your eye on the goal even in the murkiest moments.  Using the backdrop of his own experiences as a champion runner, MacDonald demonstrates how resilient people practice spiritual self-discipline to build stamina and grit; to know what’s up ahead, what obstacles they will likely face; and to bond with special friends who share their commitment to finishing well.

Charles Swindoll's best-selling classic has awakened hundreds of thousands of readers to the untapped wonders of grace - wonders that Christians know with their minds but forget with their hearts:  wonders that can make a difference in the way we live, in the way we approach life;  wonders that can make the difference between ho-hum religion and an intimate relationship with a God who wishes us nothing short of joy.  Grace represents the freedom to be forgiven, and the freedom to give; the freedom to be yourself, and to let others be themselves; the freedom to think, and even to disagree; the freedom to serve others and to give enthousiastically.

Short sermon-like sections from various publications by Tozer on a variety of topics could provide a year's worth of weekly reading to dwell upon.  A few chapter headings give an idea of how they challenge the individual believer and the church body:  Marks of the spiritual man; Great god Entertainment; Importance of self-judgment; True religion is not feeling but willing; What it means to accept Christ; Inadequacy of 'instant Christianity.'  Not to be missed, what might be considered required reading, is "How to be filled with the Holy Spirit."  This book offers a wealth of wisdom to guide the earnest reader.

Exploring the modern relationship between Christians and culture, this book exhorts Christian believers to become part of a counter-cultural shift to address the diminished status of religion in contemporary secular American society.  Seven characteristics describe what the author calls a Restoration of the church, the new way of doing “the work of Jesus in the 21st century”:  being provoked, not offended; being creators, not critics; being called, not employed; grounded, not distracted; in community, not alone; civil, not divisive; and authentically counter-cultural, not merely “relevant.”
