    We can't help but be inspired by great leaders--those who led lives of moral purpose and in some way left the world a different and better place. In the midst of our increasingly divided age, examining great moral leaders can help us understand the central qualities of moral leadership and discover lessons for our own lives and times. This book explores the lives of fourteen great moral leaders of recent centuries, including Ida B. Wells-Barnett, William Wilberforce, Harriet Tubman, Mohandas Gandhi, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai, and Mother Teresa. Incorporating skillful storytelling, short biographies, and analyses, the book presents these exemplary moral leaders as human beings who are flawed in some ways, gifted in others, but unforgettable all the same.

    Pastor, writer, and host of the popular television broadcast Hour of Power, Bobby Schuller shows readers the importance of paying attention to our thoughts because they shape our actions. There is no doubt that our thoughts impact our lives. What we think about will ultimately result in the decisions that will guide our lives. Yet we very often don't think about what we think about. We don't realize that our thought lives can be scattered or disciplined, anxious or at peace, filled with faith and hope or wallowing in despair. We instead just allow our minds to wander like corks on the sea. What if we are supposed to be training our minds, thinking with discipline, so we can be the people God has called us to be? This, of course, is what God wants for us. In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul urges us to 'put on the mind of Christ.' Too often, we allow very dark thoughts like bitterness, entitlement, fear, or despair to be our norm. Then we self-medicate through substances, work, or other vices just to get our minds off of what's ailing us. In this book, Schuller explains why we need to focus our thoughts on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy, as Philippians says. He shows us how to train our minds through spiritual disciplines and prayer. For anyone who feels stressed out, exhausted, or in a rut, this book can change their thoughts and their lives.

    What if dreaming is as essential to living as breathing? As children, we are captivated by our dreams for the future. We dream of someday being a superhero or an astronaut, to someday get married, to own a business, or to be an actress or a sports star. We all dream of doing or becoming something, and every child has giant, out-of-this-world dreams. We were born to dream BIG! However, as we mature into adults, the realities of life slowly chip away at our dreams for tomorrow. Through hardships, hurts, failures, and bruises, our dreams often become dormant or shrink to match the size of our wounded faith. If you’re having a hard time dreaming, going through life minimizing the size of your dreams, or just feeling defeated by the resistance you’re facing while chasing your dream, there is good news: IT’S NOT OVER! As long as you have breath in your lungs, God has a dream for you to chase. Join Pastor Joshua Gagnon as he encourages readers to keep believing that God can do the impossible. Through Josh’s personal stories, biblical insights, stories from Scripture, and more, It’s Not Over will inspire people to live with purpose and to chase their God-given dreams again.

    Extraordinary stories of people who have survived life's most heart-wrenching tragedies and whose Christian faith has remained unshakable. New York Times bestselling author Jeff Benedict has seen both good and bad in his career as a journalist. Some of the best are the extraordinary people he has met who have made deliberate choices to live happier lives despite the extreme hardship that each of them have faced. Although life will knock us down from time to time, this book is an important reminder that we all can make a choice to get back up, brush ourselves off, and keep pressing forward. "Each of us will find ourselves at the intersection of happiness and despair. And when that day comes, there are choices we can make that will help us turn and walk down the street called Happiness," says the author. From choosing to forgive to choosing to serve others to choosing to pray, the seven true stories that Jeff shares illustrate the power within each of us to choose to live a happier, more abundant life. Stories include a husband who lost his wife when a young boy inadvertently pulled the trigger of a loaded shotgun; a waitress who nearly drowned after being swept away in a raging flood; a father who lost his one-year-old son to a rare disease; a woman lost at sea during a harrowing storm; a man who was brutally beaten but who chose to forgive his attacker; a mother whose home was demolished by a tornado, whose husband was diagnosed with cancer, and whose nine-year-old son has undergone nearly one hundred surgeries; and a father trying to raise his family in a neighborhood often targeted by gang members.

    ***Warning: This audiobook may contain offensive content*** In the tradition of The Glass Castle and Angela’s Ashes comes the most unforgettable memoir you’ll read this year! “What did it mean to be the Tank Man’s son? To grow up overwhelmed by my father’s presence and personality? It was as if I didn’t exist, as if I was just something else for my father to crush.” So begins the haunting memoir of Mark Bouman as he recounts the events of his childhood at the hands of his larger-than-life, Neo-Nazi father in brilliant, startling detail. From adventure-filled days complete with real-life war games, artillery fire, and tank races to terror-filled nights marked by vicious tirades, brutal beatings, and psychological torture, Mark paints a chilling portrait of family life that is at once whimsical and horrific—all building to a shocking climax that challenges even the broadest boundaries of love and forgiveness. An epic tale of redemption and reconciliation, The Tank Man’s Son is a literary tour de force that is sure to become an instant classic.

    "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."

    Some days we wake to a world of crystal skies and bright possibilities. And other days it’s to rain pelting our windows and thunder rattling our roofs. How can we stay strong when the storms of life hit—when a spouse leaves, a client sues, unemployment strikes, or our dreams fail to come true? Is it possible not just to weather these trials, but bound back even stronger through them? After facing his own fierce storm, author and broadcaster Sheridan Voysey tried an experiment—he would read Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount every day for a month. That experiment continued a second month, then a third, as he discovered Jesus’ astounding invitation for weak people to become strong, little people to become great, and for all of us to find resilience by putting these radical teachings into practice. Rich with stories and deep with insight, Resilient is a journey of 90 readings designed to recalibrate your callings, relationships, spiritual practices, and life choices—helping you to find resilience.
