"Must hear for serious bible students"
Sometimes it seems we just can't get what we want. Circumstances thwart our best-laid plans. We struggle to live a heartfelt life. Worst of all, says Eldredge, the modern church mistakenly teaches its people to kill desire (calling it sin) and replace it with duty or obligation (calling it sanctification).

Those familiar with any part of the Bible will recognize John 3:16, but find a mind-altering difference. The words are fresh, new, and sound like the 21st century. That's because it is from The Message, a presentation of the Word of God crafted for a modern age. Unlike other audio Bibles, The Message was fashioned by Eugene Peterson to be read aloud, not as a study Bible.

As believers, our walk with God is motivated by hope, not the bland, vague notion most people have, but the expectation of an exotic, pleasurable inheritance that guides us and fires our passion...or, at least, should. Ted Dekker has written an expose on the death of pleasure within the Church. Because many of us have set aside hope and the inspired imagination that drives it, Dekker says we have been lulled into a slumber of boredom, even despondency.
"I'm waking up!!"
It is possible to manage and even reverse diabetes through natural means, and in Reversing Diabetes, Dr. Colbert shows you how.

"A Real Blessing"
What if a deeper belief in God comes from embracing the tension of unbelief? God is infinite, beyond our understanding. Yet he chooses to reveal himself in ways that spark questions rather than settle them all. Instead of making himself smaller, God invites us into a larger faith, one that has room for questions, victories, failures, and mystery.
"Help my Unbelief"
Wild at Heart helped men to rediscover their masculine hearts-to be the men God designed them to be. Now this small book goes a step further, encouraging fathers to pass this insight on to their children. It is not by accident, contends John Eldredge, that little boys dream of being heroes and little girls dream of being rescued by a prince. It is woven into the very fiber of the sexes. Men struggle with this most pivotal role, and Eldredge's writing is the affirmation and encouragement each man needs.
"I have what it takes!!!"
Based on the title of one of her favorite hymns, Elisabeth Elliot offers a beautiful and inspiring collection of insightful reflections on living the Christian life. Drawing from her rich personal experiences as a missionary, a wife, a mother, a widow, and a speaker, Elliot illustrates biblical concepts such as hope, peace, and prayer with clarity and grace.
Finding hope is a matter of seeing, of looking in the right direction. Hope means having the right perspective, point of view. We lose hope when our focus is fuzzy or we look in the wrong direction. Only God has the perfect perspective on every event, every circumstance. Our perspective will always be limited by the very fact that we are finite. But we can make choices on where we look that can give us a more accurate picture and bring hope.
