Give It All to Him

Max Lucado

Price: 99 cents

Have you allowed some trash to accumulate in your life? Are you carrying the weight of past or present hurts, anxiety, anger, lust, guilt, greed? We allow small fragments of mental trash to clutter our lives until we are carrying around sacks of it. We can’t quite explain how it all got there, and aren’t quite sure how to get rid of it.
Based on one of the stories from Next Door Savior, here Lucado expands the story by dividing it into several scenes and weaving powerful lessons into each section. It is a beautiful story of how God’s grace allows us to “take out the trash” by giving the burden to Jesus.
What makes this story truly effective is that it does much more than advise the reader to “give it to God” and leave it at that. It clearly illustrates the extent of Jesus’ sacrifice for us. We aren’t called to simply acknowledge our trash, then continue to drag it along with us. We are called to give our burden to Jesus, and to accept God’s offer of a new beginning. If you are ready to take out the trash in your life, start by reading this little treasure.

This story, excerpted from Next Door Savior, will become the Easter giveaway book for churches next spring-in the vein of He Did This Just for You.

In this story a woman gives her garbage of shame to the trashman; an old man hands over his heavy bag of regrets. Hundreds walk to the landfill and find it filled with trash.

“Give it to me. Tomorrow. At the landfill. Will you bring it?” He rubs a moist smudge from her cheek with his thumb and stands. “Friday. The landfill.”

“You can’t live with this,” he explains. “You weren’t made to.”

For individuals and churches, here is a beautiful story of a Savior who can take all our garbage on his shoulders-and amazingly, still stand!

In addition to this story, Max explains in easy-to-understand language what Christ did for us and how to turn in our old baggage and exchange it for new life in him.

Radical Integrity: The Story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Michael Van Dyke

Price: $1.99

I was so captivated by this book and this man that I managed to read this book in less than 3 days. While it isn’t an extensive biography by any means (if it were, I wouldn’t have been able to read it in 3 days!), it does give the reader an inside look into an extraordinaire man who not only stood up for what he believed, but did it when few others around him doing it. He is also a man that truly spent time thinking deeply about his faith, something so few people today do.

You’ll be inspired by this story of a German pastor and theologian who gave his life to oppose Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime. Born into a prominent German family, Dietrich Bonhoeffer died in a Nazi prison camp, hanged for his plot against the man who’d plunged the world into war. Find out what made Dietrich Bonhoeffer the man he was—compassionate minister, brilliant thinker, opponent of the heresies of Nazism and Aryan superiority. This easy-to-read biography details both Bonhoeffer’s life and his powerful theology—of “cheap” versus “costly” grace.
