Buscando a Alá encontrando a Jesús: Un musulmán devoto encuentra al cristianimo (Spanish Edition)

Nabeel Qureshi

En «Buscando a Alá, encontrando a Jesús», Nabeel Qureshi, quien fuera devoto musulmán, describe su dramático peregrinar del Islam al cristianismo, y con él, todas las amistades, investigaciones, sueños y visiones que fue encontrando por el camino.Muchos occidentales están confundidos acerca del Islam, les tienen algo de temor a los musulmanes, o sencillamente no están informados acerca de la relación que existe entre la fe islámica y la cristiana. A su vez, a muchos musulmanes, una serie de barreras culturales, intelectuales y teológicas les impiden comprender, o incluso escuchar correctamente, el evangelio de Jesucristo.A lo largo de su historia, Qureshi nos presenta una apologética compasiva, pero poderosa a favor del cristianismo sobre el Islam, enfatizando las relaciones y el amor. Los apéndices aportados por eruditos y expertos populares les dan más información a los musulmanes para que la analicen, y a los cristianos para que la consulten en sus discusiones espirituales con sus amigos musulmanes.Fascinante como relato y útil como recurso apologético, «Buscando a Alá, encontrando a Jesús», les presenta a los lectores una poderosa historia sobre el choque entre el Islam y el cristianismo dentro del corazón de un hombre, y sobre la paz que terminó hallando en Jesús.

Fleeing ISIS, Finding Jesus:: The Real Story of God at Work

Fleeing ISIS, Finding Jesus:: The Real Story of God at Work

Charles Morris

“Is this the end of Christianity in the Middle East?” When a respected Christian communicator read the question posed by the New York Times, he chose to travel to Jordan and Iraq in search of answers. What he discovered left him amazed and inspired.

While the news coverage of ISIS focuses on the horrors wrought by this group, there is another side to the story that rarely gets told. While terror is on the rise, Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus like never before.

Charles Morris regularly reminds the 500,000 listeners of his Haven Today radio show that “it’s all about Jesus,” and through his new book–Fleeing Isis, Finding Jesus–he offers a unique, compelling account of the miraculous ways in which Jesus is transforming lives in the Middle East today.

As Charles narrates his travels around the region, he shares with readers not just the good news of how Jesus is at work, but he also invites us to wonder how our own lives might be transformed as a result.

A Farewell to Mars: An Evangelical Pastor's Journey Toward the Biblical Gospel of Peace

A Farewell to Mars: An Evangelical Pastor’s Journey Toward the Biblical Gospel of Peace

Brian Zahnd

We know Jesus the Savior, but have we met Jesus, Prince of Peace?

When did we accept vengeance as an acceptable part of the Christian life? How did violence and power seep into our understanding of faith and grace? For those troubled by this trend toward the sword, perhaps there is a better way.

What if the message of Jesus differs radically from the drumbeats of war we hear all around us?

Using his own journey from war crier to peacemaker and his in-depth study of peace in the scriptures, author and pastor Brian Zahnd reintroduces us to the gospel of Peace.

Gaining By Losing: Why the Future Belongs to Churches that Send

Gaining By Losing: Why the Future Belongs to Churches that Send

J.D. Greear

People are leaving the church J.D. Greear pastors. Big givers. Key volunteers. Some of his best leaders and friends. And that’s exactly how he wants it to be.

When Jesus gave his disciples the Great Commission, he revealed that the key for reaching the world with the gospel is found in sending, not gathering. Though many churches focus time and energy on attracting people and counting numbers, the real mission of the church isn’t how many people you can gather. It’s about training up disciples and then sending them out. The true measure of success for a church should be its sending capacity, not its seating capacity.

But there is a cost to this. To see ministry multiply, we must release the seeds God has placed in our hands. And to do that, we must ask ourselves whether we are concerned more with building our kingdom or God’s.

In Gaining By Losing, J.D. Greear unpacks ten plumb lines that you can use to reorient your church’s priorities around God’s mission to reach a lost world. The good news is that you don’t need to choose between gathering or sending. Effective churches can, and must, do both.

2017 Christy Award finalist (General Fiction category)
The summer of 1972 was the most pivotal of Matt Plumley’s childhood. While his beloved Pirates battle for back-to-back World Series titles, Matt’s family moves from Pittsburgh to Dogwood, West Virginia, where his father steps into the pulpit of a church under the thumb of town leader Basil Blackwood. A fish out of water, Matt is relieved to forge a fast bond with two unlikely friends: Dickie Darrel Lee Hancock, a mixed-race boy, and Jesse Woods, a tough-as-nails girl with a sister on her hip and no dad in sight.

Years later, Matt is pulled back to Dogwood and to memories of that momentous summer by news of Jesse’s upcoming wedding. He could never shake the feeling that there was more to the story of that fateful night, and he’s determined to learn the truth behind the only promise Jesse Woods ever broke.

You’ll Think of Me

Robin Lee Hatcher

In a small town in Idaho’s idyllic wine country where the past looms large, can two people realize their individual dreams for the future . . . together?

Abandoned once too often, Brooklyn Meyers never intended to return to Thunder Creek, Idaho. Her hometown holds too many memories of heartache and rejection. But when her estranged husband Chad Hallston dies and leaves his family home and acreage to her and their ten-year-old daughter Alycia, it’s an opportunity to change their lives for the better—a chance Brooklyn can’t pass up, for Alycia’s sake if not her own.

Derek Johnson, Chad’s best friend since boyhood, isn’t keen on the return of Brooklyn Meyers to Thunder Creek. He still blames her for leading his friend astray. And now she has ruined his chance to buy the neighboring ten acres that would have allowed him to expand his organic farm. To add insult to injury, Chad’s dying request was that Derek become the father to Alycia that Chad never was. How can he keep that promise without also spending time with the girl’s mother?

Brought together by unexpected circumstances, Derek and Brooklyn must both confront challenges to their dreams and expectations. He must overcome long held misconceptions about Brooklyn, while she must learn to trust someone other than herself. And if they can do it, they just might discover that God has something better in mind than either of them ever imagined.

The Hideaway

The Hideaway

Lauren K. Denton

Now a USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestseller!

“A story both powerful and enchanting: a don’t-miss novel in the greatest southern traditions of storytelling.” —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author

When her grandmother’s will wrenches Sara back home, she learns more about Margaret Van Buren in the wake of her death than she ever knew in life.

After her last remaining family member dies, Sara Jenkins goes home to The Hideaway, her grandmother Mags’s ramshackle B&B in Sweet Bay, Alabama. She intends to quickly tie up loose ends then return to her busy life and thriving antique shop in New Orleans. Instead, she learns Mags has willed The Hideaway to her and charged her with renovating it—no small task considering her grandmother’s best friends, a motley crew of senior citizens, still live there.

Rather than hurrying back to New Orleans, Sara stays in Sweet Bay and begins the biggest house-rehabbing project of her career. Amid drywall dust, old memories, and a charming contractor, she discovers that slipping back into life at The Hideaway is easier than she expected.

Then she discovers a box Mags left in the attic with clues to a life Sara never imagined for her grandmother. With help from Mags’s friends, Sara begins to piece together the mysterious life of bravery, passion, and choices that changed her grandmother’s destiny in both marvelous and devastating ways.

When an opportunistic land developer threatens to seize The Hideaway, Sara is forced to make a choice—stay in Sweet Bay and fight for the house and the people she’s grown to love or leave again and return to her successful but solitary life in New Orleans.

“Two endearing heroines and their poignant storylines of love lost and found make this the perfect book for an afternoon on the back porch with a glass of sweet tea.” —Karen White, New York Times bestselling author
