The Imperishable Seed of Christ: Understanding The Believer's Spiritual D.N.A.

The Imperishable Seed of Christ: Understanding The Believer’s Spiritual D.N.A.

Steve Bremner

“Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God.” 1 Peter 1:22-23

What is this imperishable seed with which we’ve been born again? All flesh is like grass and the things of this world will fade away. In this short but rich book Steve Bremner challenges you to live a life that is “imperishable” and will survive the transition into the age to come while the things of this world, pass away.

This book is also an exploration of the parable of the sower and the principles of reproduction in the Kingdom of God, focusing primarily on Christ’s imagery and language about the seed in the parable of the sower, as well as Paul’s construction metaphors in his first letter to the Corinthians.

Perfect Peace: in Imperfect Times

Perfect Peace: in Imperfect Times

Dan Walsh

Dan Walsh, bestselling fiction author of novels like The Unfinished Gift and The Reunion, has penned his first non-fiction book. Perfect Peace is a 31-Day Devotional crafted from the pages of Dan’s personal journal, written over the last several years.

Here’s an excerpt from Day 2: “If you’re like me, you’ve known moments of real peace. Moments when you’ve trusted God fully for your life, for everything going on in your life. In those moments, you knew real peace. The problem is, the word ‘moments.’ The moments didn’t last. The promise of Isaiah 26:3 is not to have moments of peace in our lives. The promise is that God would keep us in Perfect Peace.”

In Perfect Peace, Dan shares the Scriptural life-lessons he’s learned during some of the more challenging times in his life, hoping to encourage other Christians wrestling with things like stress, worry or fear.

Now that she’s settled in town, Tina Cahill is determined to get Broken Wheel’s saloon closed for good. To that end, she pickets outside the place every afternoon. Unfortunately, so far no one has paid any attention.

But Vince is about to face his biggest challenge yet: his past has just caught up with him. His father, mother, and the sister he didn’t know he had show up in Broken Wheel without warning. His father is still a schemer. His mother is showing signs of dementia. And his surprise sister quickly falls for one of Vince’s best friends.

Then there’s Aunt Love, who’s trying to forget her hurtful past by hiding behind black dresses and a stern façade. Even Wes, the newspaper pressman, avoids any inquiries about the road he’s traveled.

But for Jocie, there are questions that need answers. As she digs into her family’s past, she finds a whirlwind of discoveries, and everything begins to change. In the end, will Jocie find the answers everyone so desperately needs, or will her questions lead to truths that were better left uncovered?
