Many of us ache for relationship with God, yet feel distant and disconnected from him. As if he's more of an idea we believe in our head than a person we relate to. But God has a name: Yahweh. This one simple idea has the potential to radically alter how you relate to God, not as a doctrine, but as a relational being who responds to you in an elastic, back-and-forth way.

John Mark Comer is an excellent teacher! He digs deep and delivers thought provoking, personal theology challenging teachings that will grow and stretch you to understand the character of God. I highly suggest this book! I love that it is read by him, he is clear and easy to listen to. Fantastic! I will be listening to this again, multiple times and buying the hard copy to have in my library forever.

An extraordinary insight into life under one of the world's most ruthless and secretive dictatorships - and the story of one woman's terrifying struggle to avoid capture/repatriation and guide her family to freedom. As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of millions trapped by a secretive and brutal communist regime. Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom....

Absolutely brilliant! I love the way Francine so seamlessly threads truth throughout this fiction story. This book truly brought a new understanding of forgiveness, resentment, and even the way we look at ourselves. I read this book just before and finished right after going to a foster camp for neglected, abused and abandoned foster children, this book helped me to prepare my heart to understand the pain that these children face. I highly recommend this book for everyone, men and women no matter where in life you are. Eye-opening to understand God's love and a new depth.

In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins listeners on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds listeners that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.

The wilderness. Maybe you know it well. The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent 40 years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck. Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Stalled out. Running on empty. Are you mired in the same? You can name the day you became a Christian and escaped Egypt. But you can't remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced an answered prayer.

Max Lucado is quickly becoming my favorite author and Ben Holland my favorite author! Ben's performance is always wonderful!! And Max's book was extremely educational! If you are feeling under attack, lost in the wilderness or even just confused and not sure how to take the next step. Read this book! It is a beautiful study of the book of Joshua. Without this book, I would not have seen all of the promises and lessons of that book! Highly recommend!

I loved this book!! I was captivated by the story! This was my first Christian novel, I was looking for a good story to get lost in and was very pleased! To my surprise I was able to have deeper revelations of God through this simple and cute story! I would recommend this for anyone looking for a great novel to get lost in! This was a beautiful story on forgiveness and I believe could be helpful to those in need of forgiving. Happy listening!

I love how raw Shauna is in her writing. This book is a collection of beautiful, colorful essays strung together as one. I feel as if I have known Shauna forever and I experienced each emotion of this bittersweet life with her. I love that she read her own book. This is the first book of hers I have read and I am a fan! I plan to read or listen to them all! Love love love this book!
