When God Breaks Your Heart: Choosing Hope in the Midst of Faith-Shattering Circumstances

When God Breaks Your Heart: Choosing Hope in the Midst of Faith-Shattering Circumstances

Ed Underwood

Why is God letting this happen to me?

If you have never asked this question, you someday will.

There is perhaps no greater challenge to our faith than personal suffering. For pastor Ed Underwood this challenge came in the form of chronic leukemia. Though he prayed for and believed in God’s healing, as the days slipped by and his pain became unbearable, Ed’s heart was broken by a simple realization: The God who could do anything was not helping him. Yet a revelation from God’s Word changed his heart and life forever.

In this poignant journey from tragedy to hope, Ed takes a fresh look at the story of Lazarus and his sisters—a story that explores suffering through the eyes of our Lord and His people. You’ll find comfort during difficulty, be inspired to ask for the impossible, and discover a God whose heart breaks with yours.

Teresa Slack

“If I wasn’t such a good Christian, you’d be in an orphanage somewhere, young lady.”

Abandoned by her parents, Michelle Hurley and her kid sister Nicole are reminded every day their livelihood depends on a grandmother who never wanted them.

The Day I Was Crucified: As Told by Jesus Christ

The Day I Was Crucified: As Told by Jesus Christ

Gene Edwards

Quite simply, one of the most powerful, moving pieces of Christian literature of modern times.

Other books have recorded the crucifixion and resurrection, but never before has the reader been ushered into unseen realms to witness the power of the cross as seen from the view of God the Father. You will discover a whole world of new meaning of Christ’s death as you witness the destruction of the world systems, the annihilation of the law, the end of Adam’s fallen race…and the death of Death. Here is an unequaled drama of power and depth which Christian literature has rarely, if ever, achieved.

Edward’s The Day I Was Crucified As Told By Jesus the Christ now takes its place among the greatest of Christian literature. We will still be reading this book 200 years from now, and still weeping (and praising) as we read.

This is one of those rare life-transforming books.

Jewish Roots: Understanding Your Jewish Faith (Revised Edition)

Jewish Roots: Understanding Your Jewish Faith (Revised Edition)

Dan Juster

Are your roots firmly grounded in Scripture?

The destiny of Israel and the Christian Church is bound together, evident in the Scriptures. Learning this truth is essential for survival.

Jewish Roots—A Foundation of Biblical Theology is an introduction to biblical theology from a Jewish contextual point of view plus practical evaluation and council for the Messianic Jewish communities and the Christian Church.

Jewish Roots presents the fundamentals regarding biblical theology, Israel and the Church, the Jewish people, the Messianic Jewish community, and much more. Important matters are discussed such as the relationship of law and grace, the role of the Spirit, and an approach to Judaism.

This new edition considers recent biblical scholarship and evaluates the progress of the Messianic Jewish community—a pulsating grass roots movement among Jewish and non-Jewish followers of Jesus of Nazareth who recognize and identify with their Jewishness.

Messianic Judaism and Messianic Jewish biblical theol­ogy are significant not only to those who are part of Messianic Jewish congregations—indeed, because the destiny of Israel and the Church is bound together, Messianic Jewish theology has implications of great importance for all people worldwide.

The Signature of Jesus

The Signature of Jesus

Brennan Manning

The Signature of Jesus challenges the gospel of “cheap grace” and calls the church to radical discipleship. With passion and boldness, author Brennan Manning invites readers to risk living life as Jesus lived—committed to simplicity, purity of heart, and obedience to the gospel.

As a radical alternative this book is offered to Christians who want to live by faith and not by mere “religion,” for those who recognize that many of the burning theological issues in the church today are neither burning nor theological; who see Christianity neither as a moral code or a belief system but as a love affair; who have not forgotten that they are followers of a crucified Christ; who know that following him means living dangerously; who want to live the gospel without compromise; who have no greater desire than to have his signature written on the pages of their lives.

“Behold,” Jesus proclaims, “I stand at the door and knock.” You may have already met him at the door…but do you truly know him? Have you been transformed by His furious, passionate, unexplainable love? Join Brennan Manning, the bestselling author of The Ragamuffin Gospel, on a personal journey to experience Christ’s love and live with His passion.
