    Four men, one calling: to serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark. They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift....

    It’s the Festive Season and you would rather be lying on the beach, but on the farm something is ravishing the chicken coup and your son can’t control his over-active hormones. What do you do? Well, you make yourself a pot of coffee, load your rifle and sit till the early morning hours waiting for the chicken thief to arrive.

    Pastor Kyle Idleman doesn't just want to be a fan of Jesus, he wants to full heartedly commit to him and be a follower of Jesus. But how can you make the leap from fan to follower? In Not a Fan Idleman uses biblical examples to show how the people who met Jesus also had to decide if they were fans or followers, and what it meant for them to then become followers.

    What does Kyle Idleman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sincerity


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes yes yes and then get up, sit down and listen to it again and again. Although it was such pure honesty that I could not listen to it all at once, had to pause and think about stuff, allow it to sink in

This is Eudora Welty's fantastical story of how some feathered friends made a fateful switch from flying to wearing shoes, little knowing that they would soon become the prey of Freddy the Cat!

    If there is a loving God, then why is it that...? You've heard that question, perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue of pain.Does God order our suffering? Does he decree an abusive childhood, orchestrate a jet crash, steer a tornado through a community? Or did he simply wind up the world's mainspring and now is watching from a distance?

    Everyone has their own vision of Jesus - an all-powerful defender of the faith, a wise rabbi, a stained-glass cathedral image, or a soft and fluffy Sunday school flannelboard likeness. But the question of who Jesus really was and what his life was like has fascinated generations of Christians. Best selling author and respected journalist Philip Yancey takes a deeper look at the Christ of the Gospels. From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey reveals a complex character, a disturbing and exhilarating Jesus who aims to transform your life and faith radically. The Jesus I Never Knew is a piercingly honest interpretation of the life and character of Jesus of Nazareth by a writer unafraid to tackle Christianity's most difficult issues in order to enhance our perspective and understanding.
