The Prayer of the Lord

The Prayer of the Lord

R.C. Sproul

The brevity and ease of reading that one finds in this book would make it very useful for a small group or one-on-one discipleship study.

Travis Peterson

What is the Lord s Prayer? In The Prayer of the Lord, Dr. R. C. Sproul writes, Jesus intent was to give His disciples a model prayer, an example to follow, one that would teach them transferrable principles for conversation with God. In short, Christ gave the Lord s Prayer to teach His disciples about prayer, and Dr. Sproul, in his trademark fashion, brings out many of the truths Christ intended for His followers to learn. Readers will learn how not to pray, then will be led into a deeper understanding of such topics as the fatherhood of God, the kingdom of God, the will of God, the nature of sin and forgiveness, the dangers of temptation, and the cunning of Satan. The final chapter includes questions and answers on various aspects of prayer not covered elsewhere in the book, and the appendix addresses the difficult question of the relationship of God s sovereignty and prayer. The Prayer of the Lord is an eye-opening journey, one that reveals new vistas in familiar terrain.

HCSB Study Bible

HCSB Study Bible

Holman Bible Editorial Staff

A legitimate question these days is to ask whether retail study bibles are getting better or just prettier. Well, it’s both, judging by this Holman Christian Standard Bible – Study Bible (HCSB-Study Bible). The whole production is a knockout, and the best of its kind I’ve ever seen or darn close to it, both for its usefulness and its beauty.

Allen Smalling

2011 ECPA Christian Book Award Winner!

Developed in direct response to what consumer focus groups asked for, only one study Bible delivers more than you’d expect-right where you’d expect it. When reading a passage in the Bible, you shouldn’t have to wonder where to find supporting reference notes and commentary that go along with it. That’s why the HCSB Study Bible-featuring approximately 15,000 study notes-is designed so that every clarifying resource is there on the same page spread as the biblical text to which it refers. You’ll never again forget what you were looking for, because the pertinent note, map, chart, word study, or illustration is already there. And when an even deeper view is desired, there are also introductions for each book, outlines and timelines, a concordance, and more. For the growing believer whose desire is to know Scripture more intimately and live out its loving instruction, the HCSB Study Bible always keeps you and God on the same page.

The Grace of God

The Grace of God

Most of us have a much harder time of giving grace than receiving it, as Stanley points out. This book will help anyone wanting to be a more grace filled person who is eager to dispense the same grace to others that God shows to us.

JDH

Grace. It’s what we crave most when our guilt is exposed. It’s the very thing we are hesitant to extend when we are confronted with the guilt of others—especially when their guilt has robbed us of something we consider valuable.

Therein is the struggle, the struggle for grace. It’s this struggle that makes grace more story than doctrine. It’s the struggle that reminds us that grace is bigger than compassion or forgiveness. That struggle is the context for both. When we are on the receiving end, grace is refreshing. When it is required of us, it is often disturbing. But when correctly applied, it seems to solve just about everything. This struggle is not new; it has been going on since the beginning.” —Andy Stanley We find in the pages of Scripture that the stories found there often mirror our own stories, and that we too need the very thing we do not deserve: the grace of God.

Let the Nations Be Glad!: The Supremacy of God in Missions

Let the Nations Be Glad!: The Supremacy of God in Missions

John Piper

Pipers book is an absolutely seminal book when it comes to understanding the heart of God in missions. Missions exists because worship does not. God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in him.

Geoffrey L. Dennis

This new edition of a bestselling textbook (over 185,000 copies sold) draws on key biblical texts to demonstrate that worship is the ultimate goal of the church and that proper worship fuels missionary outreach. John Piper offers a biblical defense of God’s supremacy in all things, providing readers with a sound theological foundation for missions. He examines whether Jesus is the only way to salvation and issues a passionate plea for God-centeredness in the missionary enterprise, seeking to define the scope of the task and the means for reaching “all nations.” The third edition has been revised and expanded throughout and includes new material on the prosperity gospel. The book is essential reading for those involved in or preparing for missions work. It also offers enlightenment for college and seminary students, pastors, youth workers, campus ministers, and all who want to connect their labors to God’s global purposes.

Christi

When I got my first freelance writing gig, I faced a bunch of unknowns: how to write quickly and well online, how to get paid, how to write a pitch, what editors did, and even dumb stuff like how to do my taxes. After half a decade as a paid blogger and magazine freelancer, I’ve learned a lot. Everything I know about the art and science of freelance writing is in this book. Want to be a writer in the modern world? Please read this. It might even be a tax write-off.

Praise for The Blogger Abides: “At the risk of empowering the competition, I wholeheartedly endorse this book. Blunt, honest and useful guidance for freelance writers.” -David Wolman, contributing editor at Wired and author of The End of Money “Don’t go telling your friends about this book.

Panic attacks will follow.” -Jason English, Editor-in-Chief, mentalfloss.com “The world needs this book, and I am glad it exists.” -Ransom Riggs, New York Times Bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children “If you’re thinking of finally getting serious about writing online—or are just curious about what pro blogging entails—buy this book. Higgins translates his wide-ranging career into unique insights on the business of wordsmithing today that you won’t find anywhere else. Even if you consider yourself more of an ink-and-paper writer, The Blogger Abides will pay for itself many times over.” -Karla Starr, contributor to The Atlantic, Slate, Popular Science

A Series of Unfortunate Events Collection: Books 1-3 with Bonus Material: The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, The Wide Window

Lemony Snicket

I am an adult and I found them amusing! As a teacher, I think they are great for 3rd-6th they way they are written has great vocabulary and the author explains what the word means in a funny way.

Sarah McKenna

Lemony Snicket’s unhappy tale of the unlucky Baudelaire siblings begins with The Bad Beginning. In this short bothersome book alone, the three orphans encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast. Should you not mind deadly serpents, slippery salamanders, lumpy beds, large brass reading lamps, long knives, and terrible odors, then proceed with caution to the second book in the miserable series, The Reptile Room. Readers unbothered by inclement weather, hungry leeches, and cold cucumber soup will want to continue with the third installment, The Wide Window. Others will not. If you’ve got the stomach to wade through the first three tragic tales in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, then this troubling collection might be the one for you. Several loathsome extras, including a compilation of unsettling quotations and a very disturbing portrait, await those who successfully complete the wretched journey. You’ve been warned!

Katie’s Choice: A Clover Ridge Novel

Amy Lillard

I found “Katie’s Choice” a engaging read to the very end. Well written. A great escape from today’s harried world.

Amazon Customer

Katie Rose Fisher loved Samuel Beachy with an intensity that shook their Amish district. No one doubted they would one day marry, until Samuel turned his back on the church and joined the world of the English.

Alone now in Clover Ridge, Katie Rose dedicates her life to God and the school children she teaches each day. Although she secretly longs for more, Katie knows God’s hand is at work, and she is happy. News correspondent Zane Carson never even knew Oklahoma had an Amish community until he got the chance to live among them and learn about their day-to-day activities. Their simple way of life is intriguing, but not half as much as the young teacher. Katie Rose is flattered over the attention she receives from Zane, but she has resolved to never marry. Even if she were to entertain the idea, it surely couldn’t be with an outsider like Zane. Never one prone to the restraints of organized religion, Zane finds a comfort in the rituals and blessings in the day to day righteous living of this small Amish community. He finds himself, God, and love with Katie Rose. But as Zane draws closer to Katie Rose, Samuel comes back to repent his ways and return to his place at her side. Can Zane convince Katie Rose that he is committed to adapting to her way of life, or will Samuel win her affec- tions back for himself once again?

A modern-day atheist will meet the historical Jesus….

“Compelling and strangely believable…” It began as a vacation out west for Jim Wagner and his family…until Jim discovers his brother, particle physicist Dr. Warren Wagner, is missing from his Nevada home. The mystery leads to the desert laboratory of corporate giant Forsythe-Hammond. There Jim discovers the truth behind Warren’s disappearance and its connection to the company’s deepest secrets, a technology where faith and science collide. It’s the beginning of a thrilling and dangerous adventure to rescue his brother. Jim is joined by the affable Lyle Bumgardner, particle physicist and atheist at heart; and by Dr. Lawrence Macklin, devout Christian and Biblical scholar. Their odyssey becomes destiny, a struggle for survival and a quest for truth, leading them to a place where Christian faith and secular atheism alike will be put to the test. Their journey puts them on the trail of the historical Jesus… “How do I categorize THE GOD PORTAL? Religious fiction? Christian fiction? Science fiction? Historical fiction? All of these and none of these. At its core the book is a human drama filled with emotion and rich characters whose deepest beliefs are put in the crucible. You’ll find history, adventure, mystery, and suspense…it’s a modern apologetic with heart. You’ll connect with Jim, Lyle, and Dr. Macklin who are wrestling with questions we all ask: Who is Jesus, really? And if I had the opportunity to meet Him face to face, would I dare go…?” “…THE GOD PORTAL will draw you into its surprising blend of theology, apologetics, and authentic history- along with a dash of Michael Crichton- all wrapped in a compelling story…” “…In THE GOD PORTAL the themes of religion, science, faith, and atheism are set on a collision course…Moving at the clip of a John Grisham novel, it pulls you toward a climactic encounter with the divine…a novel for anyone who enjoys wrestling with the deep questions: Does God exist? Who is the historical Jesus? Can I trust the Bible? Are miracles possible?…It’s all there!”

Jewel of His Heart, The (Heart of the West Book #2)

Maggie Brendan

The characters all interacted in a natural way that was at once heartening and challenging. The author did such good work on all her characters that I expected even the smaller ones to walk into the room and sit down on the couch beside me. The love story between Josh and Juliana was beautiful, passionate and touching. I think Maggie has done a beautiful job and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

P. Smith

Romance readers have taken to Maggie Brendan’s softer romantic style that perfectly captures life on the American frontier, introducing them to rugged, independent souls and their inner spiritual struggles, and the quest for love that makes for a satisfying read every time. Set in 1890s Montana, The Jewel of His Heart finds Juliana drawn to a handsome, gentle sheepherder–but sparks fly when he considers mining, the occupation that lured her father away from his family. Both Josh and Juliana must make a choice–the world’s riches and promises, or the eternal value of love.

Praise for Maggie Brendan’s first book:

“You won’t want to set this book down.”–Romantic Times, 4½-star review

“This gentle romance set among the rugged beauty of the Colorado foothills will warm readers’ hearts.”–Kim Vogel Sawyer
