The Truth about Lies: The Unlikely Role of Temptation in Who You Will Become

The Truth about Lies: The Unlikely Role of Temptation in Who You Will Become

Tim Chaddick

“How do we navigate the moments of life with wisdom beyond our years and face the temptations of our hearts with courage and resolve? In The Truth about Lies, Tim leads us into a new place, setting a new framework for how to live and how to live well. If you’re ready to take the journey, I can’t think of a better guide.”
John Mark Comer, pastor of teaching and vision for Bridgetown: A Jesus Church, and author of Loveology

Temptation isn’t merely about winning or losing a battle.
It’s about discovering who you truly are.
And what matters most.

On a daily basis, we are all tempted to enjoy the gifts of this world while making the Giver optional or irrelevant in our quest for life. But what if, in God’s purposes, temptation is not merely an obstacle to overcome but an opportunity to flourish in faith?

Living in the truth exposes lies and turns moments of temptation into character-shaping opportunities, powerfully displaying our true identity as followers of Jesus.

God Speaks: Finding Hope in the Midst of Hopelessness

God Speaks: Finding Hope in the Midst of Hopelessness

Ray Comfort

Answers to Life’s Questions From the Book of Job

When pain or tragedy strikes, the first question most of us ask is, “Why?” We’re in good company. The biblical book of Job tells the story of a man who lost everything–his children, his wealth, and even his health–and also wanted to know why. Why should he, a God-fearing man, suffer so much? Why did God allow it?

Job did not get the answer he expected. In fact, God began to ask questions of His own–70 questions, to be exact. And in His response to a grieving, broken man, we can catch glimpses of hope in the midst of our own suffering. Join Ray Comfort as he journeys into Job’s extraordinary story. You’ll find that, when God Speaks, He will transform you and forever change your perspective on suffering and faith.

Child of the River

Child of the River

Irma Joubert

A compelling coming of age story with an unlikely and utterly memorable heroine, Child of the River is a timeless tale of heartbreak and triumph set in South Africa at the dawn of apartheid.

Persomi is young, white, and poor, born the middle child of illiterate sharecroppers on the prosperous Fourie farm in the South African Bushveld. Persomi’s world is extraordinarily small. She has never been to the local village and spends her days absorbed in the rhythms of the natural world around her, escaping the brutality and squalor of her family home through the newspapers and books passed down to her from the main house and through her walks in the nearby mountains.

Persomi’s close relationship with her older brother Gerbrand and her fragile friendship with Boelie Fourie—heir to the Fourie farm and fortune—are her lifeline and her only connection to the outside world. When Gerbrand leaves the farm to fight on the side of the Anglos in WWII and Boelie joins an underground network of Boer nationalists, Persomi’s isolated world is blown wide open. But as her very small world falls apart, bigger dreams become open to her—dreams of an education, a profession, a native country that values justice and equality, and of love. As Persomi navigates the changing world around her—the tragedies of war and the devastating racial strife of her homeland—she finally discovers who she truly is, where she belongs, and why her life—and every life—matters.

The English language publication of Child of the River solidifies Irma Joubert as a unique and powerful voice in historical fiction.

International bestselling author IRMA JOUBERT was a history teacher for 35 years before she began writing fiction. Her stories are known for their deep insight into personal relationships and rich historical detail. She is the author of eight novels and a regular fixture on bestseller lists in The Netherlands and in her native South Africa. She is the winner of the 2010 ATKV Prize for Romance Novels.
