Forgiveness: Get Rid Of The Gorillas Of Pain, Anger, And Bitterness And Start Living

Forgiveness: Get Rid Of The Gorillas Of Pain, Anger, And Bitterness And Start Living

Brian Jones

Christian books on forgiveness are usually written to impart information—what forgiveness is, why we should forgive, what happens when we don’t, etc. Secular books on forgiveness teach similar concepts but leave Jesus out of the equation. Forgiveness promotes no pat answers or simple-step solutions but comes alongside strugglers and puts an arm around their shoulders. Brian Jones combines his storytelling gift with bold and compassionate honesty and an ever-present awareness of the love of God and the value of the struggle.

Are you struggling with learning how to forgive? Do you need faith in the midst of pain and anger? Are you living with bitterness or holding grudges? If you struggle with any of these things, this book is for you. Brian Jones walks you through how to let go of the past and move forward with faith.

The Collins Case (Heartfelt Cases Book 1)

The Collins Case (Heartfelt Cases Book 1)

Julie C. Gilbert

Working for the FBI certainly isn’t a “normal” job, but Special Agent Julie Ann Davidson has never encountered a case as personal as this one. Although not officially assigned to the case, Ann and her partner, Patrick Duncan, take up the cause of finding Rachel, Jason, and Emily Collins. As if that task wasn’t enough, Ann and Patrick also have a baffling case of internet thievery to investigate.

Who is Christopher Collins and what about his past is endangering his family? Where are Rachel and the kids being held? Where is God in the midst of chaos? Will Ann and Patrick arrive in time or will they find only pain?

Interview with the Author:
Q: What makes the Heartfelt Cases series special?
A: Heartfelt Cases is a mystery/suspense series featuring a pair of FBI agents handling some very personal cases. It fits in the Christian mystery niche, and most reviewers agree it hits that mark without being preachy. It’s Christian because the characters happen to be believers. That’s it. They’re normal people with a crazy job that sometimes dumps a heap of trouble on their doorstep. Life’s full of ups and downs. Most of our stressors won’t almost kill us, but hopefully, many people can relate to the desire to handle stressful situations with a measure of peace and grace.

Q: What order should I read them in?
A: They’re designed so that you should be able to read them in any order as standalones, but you’ll get the richest flow of side events from reading:
The Collins Case
The Kiverson Case
The Davidson Case
The Keres Case
The Quinn Case (This is a short prequel that will be available shortly. It was first in Where the Light May Lead, a Christian anthology. My philosophy of prequels is shifting. I think they’re more useful as enhancements to further get to know characters you’ve already met.)

Q: Where does this book fit in the series? What theme(s) make it special?
A: The Collins Case is Book 1. This is where we meet the dynamic duo of Ann and Patrick as well as their close friends. (She goes by Ann. Only her mother calls her Julie Ann.) One of my narrators recently pointed out that I have a thing for kidnapping. I guess if you read the book description, you probably agree with her.

Q: Why should readers check out this series?
A: These are super clean, kid and adult-safe mysteries. If you’re looking for gritty, this probably ain’t it. If you’re looking for a quick, light mystery fix, then I have a story to tell you.

Q: Can the reader get the whole series at once?
A: The first three cases are novellas that are combined in Heartfelt Cases Books 1-3. The 4th case is a full novel that’s available separately. Check out my website for news of future bundles.

Core Christianity: Finding Yourself in God's Story

Core Christianity: Finding Yourself in God’s Story

Michael Horton

What Do All Christians Believe?

For many people, words like doctrine and theology cause their eyes to glaze over, or they find them difficult to understand and struggle to see how they are relevant to daily life. But theology is far from boring—it is the study of God and should lead to awe and wonder as we better understand who God is and what he has done for us.

In Core Christianity, author, pastor, and theologian Mike Horton tackles the essential and basic beliefs that all Christians share. What is “core” to the Christian faith? In addition to unpacking these beliefs in a way that is easy to understand, Horton shows why they matter to our lives today.

This introduction to the basic doctrines of Christianity is a helpful guide by a respected theologian and a popular author, and it includes discussion questions for individual or group use. Core Christianity is perfect for those who are new to the faith, as well as those who have an interest in deepening in their understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

A Place for Weakness: Preparing Yourself for Suffering

A Place for Weakness: Preparing Yourself for Suffering

Michael Horton

In a world of hype, we may buy into the idea that through Jesus, we’ll be healthier and wealthier as well as wiser. So what happens when we become ill, or depressed, or bankrupt? Did we do something wrong? Has God abandoned us? As a child, Michael Horton would run up the down escalator, trying to beat it to the top. As Christians, he notes, we sometimes seek God the same way, believing we can climb to him under our own steam. But we can’t, which is why we are blessed that Jesus descends to us, especially during times of trial. In Too Good to Be True, Horton exposes the pop culture that sells Jesus like a product for health and happiness and reminds us that our lives often lead us on difficult routes we must follow by faith. This book offers a series of powerful readings that demonstrate how, through every type of earthly difficulty, our Father keeps his promises from Scripture and works all things together for our good.

Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World

Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World

Michael Horton

Radical. Crazy. Transformative and restless. Every word we read these days seems to suggest there’s a “next-best-thing,” if only we would change our comfortable, compromising lives. In fact, the greatest fear most Christians have is boredom—the sense that they are missing out on the radical life Jesus promised. One thing is certain. No one wants to be “ordinary.”

Yet pastor and author Michael Horton believes that our attempts to measure our spiritual growth by our experiences, constantly seeking after the next big breakthrough, have left many Christians disillusioned and disappointed. There’s nothing wrong with an energetic faith; the danger is that we can burn ourselves out on restless anxieties and unrealistic expectations. What’s needed is not another program or a fresh approach to spiritual growth; it’s a renewed appreciation for the commonplace.

Far from a call to low expectations and passivity, Horton invites readers to recover their sense of joy in the ordinary. He provides a guide to a sustainable discipleship that happens over the long haul—not a quick fix that leaves readers empty with unfulfilled promises. Convicting and ultimately empowering, Ordinary is not a call to do less; it’s an invitation to experience the elusive joy of the ordinary Christian life.

Conscience: What It Is, How to Train It, and Loving Those Who Differ

Conscience: What It Is, How to Train It, and Loving Those Who Differ

Andrew David Naselli

Christian, meet your conscience.

What do you do when you disagree with other Christians? How do you determine which convictions are negotiable and which are not? How do you get along with people who have different personal standards?

All of these questions have to do with the conscience. Yet there is hardly a more neglected topic among Christians. In this much-needed book, a New Testament scholar and a cross-cultural missionary explore all thirty passages in the New Testament that deal with the conscience, showing how your conscience impacts virtually every aspect of life, ministry, and missions. As you come to see your conscience as a gift from God and learn how to calibrate it under the lordship of Jesus Christ, you will not only experience the freedom of a clear conscience but also discover how to lovingly interact with those who hold different convictions.
