"Transform your understanding of God from head knowledge to heart knowledge
Prayer is vital to your ability to deepen your faith. God gave you this incredible tool not just so you can ask Him to meet your needs, but so you can more fully recognize His role in your life as father, provider, and friend.
In Prayers for Knowing God, pastor and author Dr. Tony Evans is here to guide you through the dynamic use of biblically based prayer to better understand your Creator. These thoughtful and intentional prayers are designed to help you experience God's character and nature on a spiritual, emotional, and individual level, and reflect daily on the work He is doing in your life.
Faithful prayer will keep you growing in your relationship with God no matter how long you've followed Him. This book will help transform your walk as a Christian, putting the knowledge you've gained from Scripture into practice through an active, personal connection to your heavenly Father."
"In the wake of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, Fuller Seminary theologian William Pannell decried the then-popular sentiment among white evangelicals that racism was no longer an urgent matter. In The Coming Race Wars, he meticulously unpacked reasons why our nation-and the church-needed to come to terms with our complicity in America's racial transgressions before we face a more dire reckoning.
With his blunt assessment of our social condition, Pannell's 1993 book sparked controversy. Critics dismissed him as alarmist. Back then, Pannell was among a scant number of Black evangelical leaders who called the evangelical church to account on issues of racial justice. Now, nearly thirty years later, his words are as timely as ever. Some would even argue that the 'race war' has arrived.
In The Coming Race Wars: A Cry for Justice, from Civil Rights to Black Lives Matter, Pannell revisits his provocative message with an expanded edition that connects its message to current events. With a new introduction by bestselling historian Jemar Tisby (The Color of Compromise) and a new afterword by Pannell, this compelling, heartfelt plea to the church will help listeners take a deeper look at the complexities of institutional racism and the unjust systems that continue to confound us."
"'Why do I feel this way?'
Sometimes life is a mess and we get overwhelmed by all sorts of conflicting, difficult emotions. We might be stressed or weary, anxious or fearful, paralyzed by insecurity or crushed by pain. Worse yet, some well-meaning people invalidate our feelings and tell us to just cheer up and forget our worries.
Rather than bypass the reality of our feelings, we need to enter into them and listen to what they're telling us. Psychology professor and personal development coach Dr. Peace Amadi helps us navigate the complexity of our emotions, from discouragement and hurt to trauma and depression. She explains the dynamics underlying what we feel and gives practical resources for living through our emotions in healthy ways.
With insights from both psychology and Scripture, this book offers you a clear plan to get your peace and freedom back and find your joy again."

You will learn what it means to be faithful at work, even in risky places, and what steps you can take to transform your workplace and the world through the reformation of work."
THE U.S. NAVY’S BILLION-DOLLAR CONTRACT FOR THE SALE OF DRONES LANDS TWO NAVY JAG OFFICERS IN THE GUN SIGHTS OF A KILLER.
Caroline is just getting her feet wet at the prestigious Code 13, but is thankful for at least one familiar face—her old flame, P.J. MacDonald. He loops her into the assignment he is currently working on—the legality of a proposed drone-sharing contract with Homeland Security that would allow the sale of drones for domestic surveillance. The contractor wants a legal opinion clearing the contract for congressional approval. But the mob wants the proposal dead-on-arrival.
When P.J. is gunned down in cold blood and a second JAG officer is killed, one thing becomes clear: whoever is ordered to write the legal opinion on the drones becomes a target. Which is exactly why Caroline goes to her commanding officer and volunteers to write the legal opinion herself. She is determined to avenge P.J.’s death and trap the killer, even if that means making herself a target.
It is a deadly game of Russian roulette for the sake of justice, but Caroline is determined to see it through, even if it costs her life.
'God is love.'
It's the most basic definition of God in Scriptures, but so profound that it's often misunderstood. In this probing book, a brilliant Bible expositor brings us into the very heart of God by answering such questions as:
- If God is love, how could He send anyone to hell?
- What's the difference between the loving God of the New Testament and the angry God of the Old Testament?
- If God is love, why did He require His Son to die such a cruel death on the Cross?
- How can God be both loving and jealous?
The author argues against the two polar views of God as a sentimental grandfather whose doting love could not bring him to punishment of the disobedient and God as an angry tyrant who would rule by threats. 'Both extremes paint a distorted picture of God and further confuse the issue of understanding God's love,' Dr. MacArthur writes. He insists that what God loves is actually defined by what He hates, and that neither His love nor His wrath can be understood in isolation from the other.
Although the author is clearly aware of the way great men have grappled with these issues in the history of the Church, his doctrinal presentations arise more from the biblical text than from dogmatic theology. He examines in detail the way John?'the apostle of love'?treats love in his First Epistle, then fleshes out the doctrine of God's love in vivid representations of real people interacting with divine love.
Rich in historical detail, The Heart Answers takes us to 1867 Wyoming, where a misplaced socialite and an independent preacher ask the deepest questions of the heart.
Jessica DuBois is not used to getting her hands dirty or her heart broken. When her mother remarries and takes Jessica with her to rugged Fort Bridger, Wyoming, Jessica longs for her Boston parties and the control she used to have over her life.
Then she meets Reverend Clay Cole, a man who seems only to have eyes for God and his adoring three-year-old cousin. Clay is not just immune to Jessica’s charms, he challenges her selfish attitude.
When tragedy brings this unlikely pair together, they must decide: Is love truly powerful enough to heal the soul?

Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds—sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression—that threatened to tear it all apart. Along the way, he realized the wounds we all carry through life have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves and others.
In this four-session study (study guide sold separately), Lecrae explains how this journey led him to realize that 'Christians operate in a functional state of chaotic living that has them bound and trapped in unhealthy patterns and habits without addressing deep root issues.' As a result, he began to develop some simple practices when the chaos strikes that have led him to greater mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This involved taking an honest and unflinching look not only at the 'chaos within' his own life but also the 'chaos without'—the hurt that so often occurs in culture, politics, family, the church, and other public spaces.
I Am Restored reminds us that learning to let go and forgive is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom that God has for each us. It is an inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration that is available to each of us now through Christ. It is also an encouragement to grab hold of the life God has for us. For no matter what we've experienced, God is near, he hears, and he's not done with us yet.

What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful?
Lysa TerKeurst unveils her heart amid shattering circumstances and shows readers how to live assured when life doesn't turn out like they expected.
Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.
Lysa understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor, helps us to:
- Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
- Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.
- Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give us more than we can handle.
- Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us.
- Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.
In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa offers a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity.

The pieces are in place. The curtain rises for the final act. God is about to die.
An unprecedented conspiracy of injustice, cruelty, and religious and political interests sentenced a man guilty of no crimes to the most barbaric method of execution ever devised. The victim was no mere man. Jesus was God in the flesh. The Creator of life died.
How did such a thing come to be? Who were the onlookers, the players, the fakes, frauds, and heroes? What was it like in the Upper Room that night, in the shadows of Gethsemane, or in the Praetorium awaiting Pilate's verdict? What is the meaning of the last words Jesus uttered as He gasped for breath on the cross? What if all the facts you now so well could come alive in your mind and heart as a living story, rather than as a 2000-year-old ancient account?
By piecing together the narrative from the perspective of the participants, John MacArthur invites you to relive the most awesome injustice in the history of man, the unparalleled triumph of the sovereignty of God, and the passion of Christ.
