    "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."

    Dr. Kent and Amber Brantly (with David Thomas) tell of Dr. Brantly’s near-death encounter with the Ebola virus in Liberia. The first American diagnosed during the 2014 outbreak, Dr. Brantly’s ordeal—including his controversial evacuation to and hospitalization in the United States—received worldwide media attention. Interspersed in the account is the full story of how both Kent and his wife, Amber, sought to serve others in the name of Christ in Liberia. Then, when tragedy struck—as thousands, perhaps millions of people worldwide prayed for his life—miraculous events unfolded that resulted in Dr. Brantly’s flight to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta…and an eventual clean bill of health.

    In Choose Joy, Kay Warren showed readers that they could live a life characterized by deep and lasting joy no matter what their circumstances because joy is a choice to make, not a feeling that comes over them. Joy Is a Choice You Can Make Today is a small format book drawn from the first three chapters of Choose Joy. Illuminating the life of Jesus--a life that exhibited great joy despite opposition, sorrow, and pain--Warren shows readers that God created them not for hardship or drudgery or struggle, but for a life of joyful relationship with him and with each other. A perfect giveaway for churches, small groups, and individuals who want to encourage a friend, Created for Joy gives readers a solid foundation for the life of joy they crave and introduces them to Kay Warren's rich, life-changing writing.

    Why am I here? Why is the church here? Do we still have a place in the world? What is our purpose? In an age when formerly great churches struggle to survive, baptismal pools are dry and altars empty, and the church is aging, seemingly indifferent to the next generation, we are tempted to believe we have no purpose. We are tempted to give up on living the meaningful, countercultural lives to which Christ has called us, and to give in to a world that encourages us to go with the flow. How will we respond? In his letter to the Philippians, Paul gives advice that is invaluable to the twenty-first century church. The Philippians were assembled in the middle of a corrupt, sensual society, fighting against the norms of the world around them. They were God’s representatives in a secular society, and they maintained a singular focus, vision, and purpose. In The Power of Purpose, Pastor Michael Catt walks us through this letter to the Philippians, exploring how God is still calling His church, even in the rapidly changing world of the 21 st century, to be his representatives. He is calling us to maintain a singular focus and vision. He is calling us to the power of purpose.

    "As a freelance filmmaker, Nikole Lim's career allowed her to step in and out of the lives of marginalized people around the world. But when confronted with the prevalence of sexual violence in Kenyan and Zambian communities, she committed to advocating alongside the courageous survivors whose lives have intersected with her own. These women's powerful stories inspired her to embark on a new vocation. Partnering with her Kenyan and Zambian sisters, Lim launched Freely in Hope, an organization focused on equipping survivors to end the cycle of sexual violence throughout Africa through faith, education, and self-empowerment. As Lim sought to provide liberation for her African sisters, her perspective was altered. Exhausted and deathly ill, she witnessed her friends becoming her healers-the once oppressed become her liberators. Liberation Is Here transports listeners to forgotten corners of the world. From the slums of Nairobi, hospitals of Lusaka, killing fields of Kigali, and back alleys of Barcelona, Lim weaves together stories in a narrative of God's grace and healing amid fear and trauma. Her journey proves that liberation is not just near, but it is here-in the eyes of the broken, the hearts of the oppressed, and the untold stories of our global community."

    Many Christians today feel overwhelmed as they try to live faithfully in a culture that seems increasingly hostile to their beliefs. Politics, marriage, sexuality, religious freedom--with an ever-growing list of contentious issues, believers find it harder than ever to hold on to their convictions while treating their friends, neighbors, coworkers, and even family members who disagree with respect and compassion. This isn't just a problem that affects individual Christians; if left unaddressed, the growing gap between the faithful and society's tolerance for public faith will have lasting consequences for the church in America. Now the bestselling authors of unChristian turn their data-driven insights toward the thorny question of how Christians talk with people they know and love about the most toxic issues of our day. They help today's disciples understand what they believe and why, and how to keep believing it without being judgmental and defensive. Readers will discover the most significant trends that offer both obstacles and opportunities to God's people, and how not only to challenge culture but to create and renew it for the common good. Perhaps most importantly, David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons invite fellow Christians to understand the heart behind opposing views and show them how to be loving, life-giving friends despite profound differences. This will be the go-to book for young adult and older believers who don't want to hide from culture but to engage and restore it.

He is the place where our hearts can go on the hard days and the happy ones, in the highs and lows, when we are sad or frustrated or downright giddy. He is what we've been searching for all along."

    'Fear not.' 'Do not be afraid.' 'Peace be with you.' Phrases like these appear in the Bible more often than almost any other proclamation. We long to follow these commands. Yet for many, something inside us is wary, ready for anything and everything to go wrong. In fact, a quarter of Americans struggle with anxiety disorders-and Christians are not immune. Jason and Dena Hobbs are familiar with this struggle, professionally and personally-Jason as a clinician, Dena as someone with anxiety, and both as pastors of congregations full of anxious people. They also know the shame and confusion that so often accompany these disorders, especially for people who think their faith should be strong enough to overcome these struggles. With their deep understanding, they've written When Anxiety Strikes, an eight-week guide to managing anxiety, grounded in both Scripture and research. Structured for daily listening, with integrated practices for everyday life, the book addresses seven themes: breath, body, movement, mind, change, spirit, and community. Concise stories, readings, questions, and activities guide listeners to tackle the realities of living with anxiety. When Anxiety Strikes offers real solutions to find a solid landing place when the storm of fear looms.

How do you find something real, something true, something infused with purpose and meaning? Funny, vulnerable, and to the point, this book exposes the false beliefs that can derail your current happiness and future impact, like having big dreams is naÔve; success just happens; everyone else is experiencing the success you were supposed to; when you fail you're a failure; and many more. This story-driven book shows you that you're not alone in your insecurities and second-guessing, then shows you how to replace the lies with the truth-that you can live a life of purpose, earn a good paycheck, leave a legacy, and have fun doing it."
