    "The Bible tells us there is ecstatic, extravagant joy eternally in God's presence. We do not have to experience joy only intermittently, since every fruit of the Holy Spirit is available to us always. Georgian Banov knew nothing of this joy. Born and raised in Communist Bulgaria, he escaped miraculously to the United States, where he was embraced by the love and joy of the 'Jesus people.' His encounter with God, along with the truth of God's Word and the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit, has led him to a life of freedom and holy joy. In Joy! Georgian will help you discover God's goodness and defeat disappointment; learn to enjoy God's loving acceptance and overcome feelings of failure and inadequacy; activate supernatural power for your breakthrough and find victory over sin; and be the hands and feet of Jesus today and do his works of justice in the world-with great joy! You can experience God's joyful heart daily as you walk out your calling with purpose and power."

You have been chosen to live in this important hour and reading these stories will inspire you to the same kind of courage. So what are you waiting for?

These unlikely heroes will show you the dramatic influence one person can have in seeking fairness, justice, and compassion in a nation.

    "It's in the movies we see. It's in the news we hear. It's in the stories we tell. Every man is stirred by the heroic. From boyhood, we search for heroes, starting with our fathers. But somewhere along the way, all our heroes disappoint us. And our attempts to be a hero fair no better, leaving us confused and unsure. Yet the heroic longing never leaves us. We want to be that heroic man, but we do not know how. Jesus does. He is the great Hero of all time. And He calls men to follow Him. As we follow, we will quickly realize that the path is surprising. He will first lead us into a place of fear and trembling. He will lead us into death. It is our initiation as men into the new life of the heroic. But the death will be followed by a stunning resurrection. We will find out our true names before Him and be given a heroic quest for His kingdom. And most importantly, we will discover the secret of true greatness, letting our lives go to serve others. In the end, we become most heroic in the silence of His presence. Here we will feel His love, as he remakes us into His heroic image, uniting us to Himself."

    "Most people never seize their moment because they are paralyzed by their own thinking. This book will teach you to let go of your excuses and never miss your moment again. Have you convinced yourself the abundant life Jesus came to bring is out of reach? Have you developed an 'if only' mentality, waiting for something or someone to turn things around? While you become more and more dependent on your excuses, you watch others get what you want to have, go where you want to go, and experience what you long to feel. It seems it's never your turn to experience the joy that comes from attaining all God has for you. In You Are Next, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez uses the story of Jesus healing the paralytic to powerfully illustrate that your 'tendency for dependency' could be standing in the way of your miracle. He challenges you to do what's necessary to receive it and shows you how to let go of old labels you've allowed to define you; move beyond barriers that limit you; stop seeing yourself as a victim and start seeing your circumstances as subject to the authority and power of Jesus Christ; and let go of the qualifications you think are tacked on to Jesus' command to get up and walk."

    Something is not right. The witness of the church in North America is eroding. Many Christians are alarmed by the decline in church attendance and seek a culprit. Too often, we point the finger away from the church, make culture the enemy, and build walls between us and others. But our antagonism and enemy-making are toxins that further eat away at our witness. Is there a better way? Tara Beth Leach could easily be one of those millennials giving up on the church. Instead, she is a pastor who loves the church and is paradoxically hopeful for its future. In an era where the church has lost much of its credibility, Leach casts a radiant vision for Christians to rediscover a robust, attractive witness. We need to name the toxic soil we've grown in, repent for past wrongs, and lean into a better way to become the church that Jesus proclaimed we would be. Leach casts down idolatrous false images of God to recover a winsome picture of a kingdom of abundance and goodness. We can be sustained by practices that will tune our hearts to God's and form us into the radiant communities God intends for us and those around us.

    Thirty years in the making, Audacious is a deep dive into the message that has compelled Beth Moore to serve women around the globe. Glancing over the years of ministry behind her and strengthening her resolve to the call before her, she came to the realization that her vision for women was incomplete. It lacked something they were aching for. Something Jesus was longing for. Beth identifies that missing link by digging through Scripture, unearthing life experiences, and spotlighting a turning point with the capacity to infuse any life with holy passion and purpose. What was missing? Well, let's just say, it's audacious and it's for all of us. And it's the path to the life you were born to live.

    "Award-winning author Maria Morera Johnson follows up her bestselling book My Badass Book of Saints with a unique and daring exploration of the cardinal virtues through the saints and heroines of science fiction, fantasy, and comic books. Johnson will reignite your passion for your faith as she demonstrates the heroic in the sometimes mundane quest for good and reminds us that Catholicism is filled with adventure. What do Wonder Woman and St. Katharine Drexel have in common? How about St. Clare of Assisi and Rey, the ingenue from Star Wars: The Force Awakens? All four women sought justice for the abused. With the same zest for her faith and cheeky wit that readers found so compelling in My Badass Book of Saints and a love for the heroic journey that highlights her career, Johnson now focuses on heroines-improbable pairings of saints and characters from sci-fi, comics, and fantasy-who have influenced her life and deepened her understanding of the Church's cardinal virtues: prudence, temperance, fortitude, and justice. With Johnson's enthusiasm as a guide, you'll be inspired to embrace the virtues anew and find your faith in your favorite stories."

    "How are you feeling?" Christine Yi Suh says that this has always been a hard question. She writes: 'The more accurate question for a Four may be, 'What aren't you feeling?' I can grab my prevailing emotion and tell you how I'm doing from that emotion's point of view (joy, elation, sadness, grief, confusion-you name it!). I live and breathe a kaleidoscope of living, feeling, conflicting emotions.' Many times Fours are labeled 'emotionally intense' or 'too much,' but for a Four this is just how life is. This is why Fours are ideal companions in the midst difficult times: the death of a loved one, the birth of a baby, transitional seasons in career, relational conflict, and so on. The Enneagram is a profound tool for empathy, so whether or not you are a Four, you will grow from learning about Fours and enhance your relationships across the Enneagram spectrum. Each reading concludes with an opportunity for further engagement such as a journaling prompt, reflection questions, a prayer, or a spiritual practice.
