If any of us learned we were going to move to a foreign country, we'd do everything we could to learn about that place so that we'd be prepared when moving day arrived. As Christians, we know some day we will leave our familiar country and be united with God in heaven. And yet many of us know very little about this place called heaven.
In this enlightening book, bestselling author Dr. Robert Jeffress opens the Scriptures to unpack ten surprising truths about heaven and explain who we will see there and how we can prepare to go there someday. Perfect for believers or skeptics who are curious about heaven.
A Christian parents’ guide to beginning open and honest discussions about homosexuality
This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in today’s culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it; parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this difficult topic. Gilson helps parents by providing biblical answers to common questions.
I Wonder What Noah Did With the Woodpeckers Tales from the Far Side of Christian Life
by Tim Wildmon
In the everyday of the really unusual, Tim Wildmon can find intrigue, humor, and spiritual application. From a self-professed Mississippi redneck (but one of depth and sophistication) comes a tremendous collection of stories sure to make you smile, laugh, stop, and ponder.
This down-home Christian humorist addresses the “terrible twos,” in-laws, marriage, and lest he forget, his church family as well. If that all sounds too serious, Tim also shares thoughts on sports (his beloved 1971 St. Louis Cardinals), entertainment (including psychic hotlines), and fishing (“Big Bite Catfish Dough” is not for human consumption).
Amidst all the fun is some serious thought, though. Can we learn to better love God and serve our fellow man by pausing to contemplate everyday events? Perhaps there are lessons in each episode of our lives—golden nuggets of truth that can be mined when, at wit’s end, we are left to wonder what DID Noah do with the woodpeckers?
It’s said that almost 60% of those in American evangelical churches believe many religions can lead to eternal life. But how can that be when Jesus says no one comes to the Father except through him? An exclusive Jesus isn’t popular in an inclusive world. Can people be saved who’ve never heard of Christ? Do children automatically go to heaven? Can people serve God without knowing it?
Columnist and host of The Line of Fire, Dr. Michael Brown provides a handbook for a biblically-based moral and cultural renaissance, revealing that the key to recapturing America’s greatness consists in returning to our spiritual and moral roots. (Hardcover)
