There is nothing more thrilling in life then to allow Jesus to make us dangerous.
Based on his bestselling book, All In, Mark Batterson, challenges the mistaken beliefs that God wants to send us to safe places to do easy things; that faithfulness is holding the fort; that playing it safe is safe; that there is any greater privilege than sacrifice; and that radical is anything but normal. Instead, Batterson maintains that Jesus did not die to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous. Here is a challenge to go all in and all out by fully surrendering your life to daring plan God has for you. The message of Not Safe is simple: If Jesus is not Lord of all then Jesus is not lord at all. It's all or nothing. Now or never. Not safe or safe.
"Hunting Charles Manson the best true crime book you will ever read....Lock your doors, keep the night lights on, and read this book." - Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling crime novelist
In the late summer of 1969, the nation was transfixed by a series of gruesome murders in the hills of Los Angeles. Newspapers and television programs detailed the brutal slayings of a beautiful actress--twenty six years old and eight months pregnant with her first child--as well as a hair stylist, an heiress, a businessman, and other victims. The City of Angels was plunged into a nightmare of fear and dread. In the weeks and months that followed, law enforcement faced intense pressure to solve crimes that seemed to have no connection.
Finally, after months of dead-ends, false leads, and near-misses, Charles Manson and members of his "family" were arrested. The bewildering trials that followed once again captured the nation and forever secured Manson as a byword for the evil that men do.
Drawing upon deep archival research and exclusive personal interviews--including unique access to Manson Family parole hearings--former federal prosecutor and Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl has written a propulsive, page-turning historical thriller of the crimes and manhunt that mesmerized the nation. And in the process, she reveals how the social and political context that gave rise to Manson is eerily similar to our own.
Life is hard in Barrow, Alaska. Football mom Cathy Parker first caught a glimpse of this far-away reality from the comfort of her Jacksonville, Florida, living room while watching a 2006 ESPN report on the Barrow Whalers, a high school football team consisting mostly of Alaskan Inupiat Eskimo natives playing in the most difficult of conditions and trying to overcome the most unlikely of odds. These players--raised in the northernmost town in the United States, where drug abuse is rampant and the high school dropout rate is high--found themselves playing on a gravel field, using flour to draw the lines. And while the community of Barrow felt a strong pride for their boys, many felt football was not worth the investment. That is, until Cathy Parker became involved.
Overcome by a surprising stirring in her soul to reach out and help, Cathy was determined to build a suitable field for the Barrow Whalers. Not fully understanding the many obstacles, both financially and logistically, that would line the path ahead, Cathy charged forward with a determined spirit and a heart for both the football team and the greater community of Barrow. She spearheaded a campaign that raised more than half-a-million dollars through people all around the country rallying around one common goal: changing the lives of young men through football.
This is not just the story of how the Barrow Whalers became the first high school above the Arctic Circle to have a football program. This is the story of how we are sometimes called to the most unlikely of causes and to believe in something a little bit bigger, changing our own lives and the lives of others for the better in the most unexpected of ways.
Bible teacher and popular speaker Amanda Anderson shows women how to form the safe, sane friendships that enable them to become the person God intends them to be.
Amanda Anderson spent many exhausting years trying to find and become the perfect friend until she a made an illuminating discovery: all of her friends had "issues," including herself. But she found that her closest friends admitted and talked about them--and loved each other in spite of them.
Conversational and funny, All My Friends Have Issues shares practical relationship advice, biblical insights, and psychological truths that help women form the kinds of friendships they long for. The key, Anderson says, is to build those relationships on the three pillars of healthy Christian friendship: authenticity, encouragement, and accountability. By cultivating those characteristics in friendship, women will discover the safe, satisfying relationships that lead to personal flourishing, deep well-being, and spiritual growth. Blending Scriptural teaching with the best of evidence-based therapeutic models and personal stories, All My Friends Have Issues is a liberating guide to finding and becoming the best kind of friend.
God created men and women to be different, but that doesn't limit what each can and should do to serve him.
In Mark 12:30 Jesus answers a question asked by the teachers of the day. They wanted to know which commandment was the greatest, the most important. He said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength" (NIV).
What does that really mean in how we approach and assume our daily roles? What does loving the Lord with your all actually look like? What does that mean for us as women--and men--desiring to follow God and serve him? In a day when our church culture has limited the terms of Jesus' command to the perceived strengths of each gender, a woman trying to love the Lord beyond her heart and soul, with her strength and mind, can be thought of as crossing some line or unspoken boundary. But that is not what Scripture says.
Kat Armstrong--Bible study teacher, ministry leader, pastor's wife, and mom--offers her thoughts on this important subject in an effort to help women find their answers to the question, "What am I doing here?" Perhaps more clearly, "Why am I allowing limitations on my pursuit of Jesus' calling?"--not just as single, career-driven women or as wives and moms but as Christ followers focused on living their lives to love and serve God as their first and highest calling.
No More Holding Back opens the doors to this important conversation with a personal challenge Kat faced while attending seminary. From there, she unpacks the four areas of how to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. The goal is for the entire body of Christ, as his image bearers, to flourish and work toward the common good of our homes, communities, and the world around us.
From Sean Dietrich--also known as Sean of the South--comes a poignant tale of the stars that shine all around us . . . if only we're willing to look.
When she becomes pregnant at fifteen, Marigold is rejected by her family and forced to fend for herself. And when she loses her baby in the forest, her whole world turns upside down. She's even more distraught upon discovering she has an inexplicable power that makes her both beautiful and terrifying--and something of a local legend.
Meanwhile, migrant workers Vern and Paul discover a violet-eyed baby and take it upon themselves to care for her. The men soon pair up with a widow and her two children, and the untraditional family finds their way in fits and starts toward taking care of each other.
As survival brings one family together, a young boy finds himself with nary a friend to his name amid the dust storms still raging across Kansas. Fourteen-year-old Coot, a child preacher with a prodigy's memory, is on the run with thousands of stolen dollars--and the only thing he's sure of is that Mobile, Alabama, is his destination.
As the years pass and a world war looms, their stories intertwine in surprising ways. With a voice both humorous and heartfelt, Sean Dietrich weaves together a tale about the dignity of humanity and the value of enduring hope--reminding us that when the dust clears, we can still see the stars.
