The Unexpected Journey: Conversations with People Who Turned from Other Beliefs to Jesus

The Unexpected Journey: Conversations with People Who Turned from Other Beliefs to Jesus

Thom S. Rainer

Following Jesus is a journey none of the people in this book ever expected to take.
Why did they?
What difference did it make?

The book you’re holding is dangerous. If you read it, you’ll see that God is still active in saving even the most unexpected people: An atheist woman who viewed Christians as “idiots.” A married couple high in the leadership ranks of the Mormon church. An African-American man who became a Black Muslim out of hatred for white Christians.

You’ll be amazed, moved, and encouraged as you read their compelling stories and the stories of nine others who made The Unexpected Journey from non-Christian beliefs to faith in Jesus Christ. You’ll rediscover the power of the gospel. You might even be emboldened to tell others about Christ yourself.

Hearing God: An Easy-to-Follow, Step-by-Step Guide to Two-Way Communication with God

Hearing God: An Easy-to-Follow, Step-by-Step Guide to Two-Way Communication with God

Peter Lord

God, your Father, is talking to you every day.
CAN YOU HEAR HIM?

For many believers, prayer often feels more like talking to the ceiling than conversing with a loving God: You strain your ears and heart to hear, but you are never quite sure anyone is talking back. You look to the Bible for answers, but find your questions and concerns not addressed specifically in its pages. Yet instructions on how to hear God speak are clearly laid out there.

In this revised and updated edition of the classic bestseller, you will discover an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to developing a rich prayer life–moving from one-way communication to God to two-way conversations with your Father. As you develop your ability to hear God and discern His voice, you will hear Him speak many kinds of things to you including

Guidance • Revelation • Wisdom • Comfort

God is speaking today. And He’s speaking to you. Will you learn to recognize and cherish His voice?

“Peter Lord does a masterful job of correcting the tragic misconception of God as a silent Father or a God we cannot hear. I am confident this book will help you make hearing God a vital part of your walk with the Lord.”–James Robison, LIFE Outreach International

Peter M. Lord is a nationally known speaker and pastor as well as the author of several books, including The 2959 Plane, which has sold more than a half-million copies and has been translated into four languages. He and his wife, Johnnie, have five children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and live in Titusville, Florida.

A Hunger for the Holy: Nuturing Intimacy with Christ

A Hunger for the Holy: Nuturing Intimacy with Christ

Calvin Miller

Using the imagery of the psalms as a backdrop, author Calvin Miller explores our hunger for intimacy with our Holy God. Insisting that the pathway to God’s holiness is through a journey into our own selves, Miller yet maintains that our end is not to know ourselves but to know Christ. Our hunger for the Holy leads us to a table for two in a quiet wilderness. Here, Miller says, we meet as “ardent lovers in the lonely desert of the human heart. There, he speaks as much as we do, and even when both of us say nothing, we are rapt in a welded oneness.”

In Miller’s inimitable style, he graciously invites us to satisfy our hunger for the holiness of God as we meditate on the psalms and are challenged to know the God of the universe in a personal, intimate relationship.

The Secret Things of God: Unlocking the Treasures Reserved for You

The Secret Things of God: Unlocking the Treasures Reserved for You

Henry Cloud

In this Christian alternative to the phenomenal bestseller The Secret, acclaimed author dr. Henry Cloud helps readers discover truths that make life work and show how faith can guide them in achieving their goals—now available in paperback!

The Bible claims that God has provided special truths that can change lives and uplift the spirit, but often those truths lie dormant and untapped within the soul. Offering a positive alternative to The Secret based on biblical scripture, Dr. Henry Cloud reveals that there is indeed a power of attraction ruling the universe—the attraction between God and his creation—and demonstrates how that power can shape our lives. With step-by-step practical instructions, this book teaches readers from all walks of life how to apply spiritual truths to real life. Even Christians who think they understand biblical truths often don’t know how to use them. Chapters on happiness, relationships, purpose, and God, share secrets like, “you attract to yourself relationships that fit you,” “whatever you put to use will grow,” and “there is no such thing as disconnected and happy.” The Secret Things of God reveals profoundly simple secrets and gently guides readers toward unlocking the power of these truths in everyday life.

Freedom from Fear: A Devotional Bible Study

Freedom from Fear: A Devotional Bible Study

Pauline Creeden

Fear is a cage. It closes us in and keeps us from living in freedom.

Some people get so overcome by fear that they cannot even leave their house. Phobias have become almost fashionable. We label our fears and hug them tightly to us as if they are things we need. We coddle them and keep them happy so they don’t destroy us, and the last thing we want to do is provoke them. That powerlessness is what keeps us from accomplishing great things in our lives, whether personally or for God’s kingdom.

In Freedom from Fear, we explore the keys to our freedom through faith and obedience to God’s word. With this book, you’ll learn to put your trust in God’s character and turn to him when you feel out of control.

Anna's Crossing: An Amish Beginnings Novel

Anna’s Crossing: An Amish Beginnings Novel

Suzanne Woods Fisher

“This novel is a winner.”–Publishers Weekly

Some endings are really beginnings . . .

On a hot day in 1737 in Rotterdam, Anna König reluctantly sets foot on the Charming Nancy, a merchant ship that will carry her and her fellow Amish believers across the Atlantic to start a new life. As the only one in her community who can speak English, she feels compelled to go. But Anna is determined to complete this journey and return home–assuming she survives. She’s heard horrific tales of ocean crossings and worse ones of what lay ahead in the New World. But fearfulness is something Anna has never known.

Ship’s carpenter Bairn resents the somber people–dubbed Peculiars by the deckhands–who fill the lower deck of the Charming Nancy. All Bairn wants to do is to put his lonely past behind him, but that irksome and lovely lass Anna and her people keep intruding on him.

Delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions test the mettle and patience of everyone on board. When Anna is caught in a life-threatening situation, Bairn makes a discovery that shakes his entire foundation. But has the revelation come too late?

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to the beginning of Amish life in America with this fascinating glimpse into the first ocean crossing–and the lives of two intrepid people who braved it.

“I found Anna’s Crossing to be everything I love in a novel, especially in a historical novel! Fast paced, character driven, filled with rich descriptions and enjoyable dialogue. It was a pleasure to read, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to endorse it.”–Shelley Shepard Gray, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

Some Kind of Wonderful (Treasure Harbor Book 1)

Belle Calhoune

Treasure Harbor: Seven novellas centered around a quest to find treasure hidden by a notorious pirate, Drake Burton, in the seventeen-hundreds. When Nor’easter Igor unearths gold coins on Bounty Beach in Treasure Harbor, treasure seekers from near and far converge on the town in hopes of finding the treasure of a lifetime. Set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the seaside town of Treasure Harbor, this eight book series features heroes and heroines who are dealing with the fact that their beloved town has gone treasure crazy.

Lara Callahan is a journalist living in Philadelphia and working for the Philadelphia Times newspaper. When her job sends her back to her hometown of Treasure Harbor, North Carolina in pursuit of a story about centuries old pirate’s treasure, Lara has mixed feelings. Years ago Lara left Treasure Harbor in order to seek a new life away from talk of buried treasure and the hunt for the elusive pirate’s booty. Her childhood was fractured by her parents’ obsession with finding the lost treasure; Lara still feels jaded about the dysfunction she and her sister, Avery, endured as a result.

Now that she’s back in Treasure Harbor, Lara finds herself confronted by the ghosts of the past. Ryan Burton, her childhood best friend and the object of her teen crush, is now a gorgeous, kind man who is determined to find the treasure buried by his ancestor, Drake Burton. Although Lara quickly finds herself falling for Ryan, she isn’t sure that she can bear to watch someone she cares about become so consumed with the treasure.

Ryan Burton can’t believe his eyes when Lara Callahan walks into Pirate Pizza looking all grown up and gorgeous. Years ago they were best friends before the enmity of their families and the centuries old Burton-Callahan feud tore them apart. Now an executive at the Burton import-export family business, Ryan is struggling to make his family proud of his achievements. Now that gold coins have washed up on Bounty Beach, the town is in a frenzy over the elusive treasure. Wanting to spend time with Lara, Ryan suggests they pool their resources since she’s writing a series of articles about the treasure and he’s officially become a treasure seeker. When romantic sparks fly between them, Ryan finds himself imagining a future with the spunky journalist. But when tensions rise over the treasure in the small seaside town, Ryan begins to realize that he and Lara are at odds over his pursuit of the treasure.

Will Lara and Ryan find their way to a happy ending?
