"I'm sorry, Mr. Butts, but you have lymphoma and you are already in stage four." Those words would rattle anyone. Those are the words Dave and Kim Butts heard just 10 days into Dave's beginning to write this book on prayer and peace. God literally put Dave into a situation where Dave would have to live out what he was planning to teach others in his book. As believers, we know that we are supposed to walk in Christ's peace day by day. But when the trials, struggles, and stresses of life come upon us, many of us do not appropriate or experience that peace. Instead, we look at our circumstances and worry. In the pages of this 30-day devotional, you will find the shalom--the peace--of Jesus Each day you will be encouraged by a verse on peace, gently be taught how to live that verse out, and then be guided in praying that peace into your life. This book is for every believer who wants to experience and walk in the peace of Christ, no matter what life throws at him or her.

God's amazing grace lifted Wendy from the dark incestuous world of severe child abuse. The author's factual account of her journey from wounded child to warrior sharing the light and joy that comes from forgiveness and healing through Jesus Christ is emotion-packed and unforgettable. Wendy describes her five goals in writing GOOD MOURNING. 1) I want to offer hope and comfort to a generation of children, adolescents, and others who are currently the victims of sexual, emotional, and physical abuse and severe trauma. I will show them safe ways to escape evil abusers. 2) I wish to reach out to those who have been victims in the past. 3) I hope to reach out to those who suspect child abuse is occurring and arm them with information on how to identify the facts and, if necessary, teach them how to intervene. 4) I desire to motivate abusive parents, family members, and others to stop abusing, get treatment, be accountable to persons in authority, and seek forgiveness (as my mother eventually did of me), so that hopefully they can be reconciled with their loved ones. 5) I want to reach out to concerned loved ones, counselors, clergy, teachers, and others to better equip them with information and resources that will enable them to be more effective in their vital roles. My sexual, physica,l and emotional abuse began when I was a preschool child and continued through high school. I was so sexualized by my parents that when I entered college, I lived primarily for unrestrained and unfulfilled sexual pleasure with men. As a logical consequence of my mother messing with my femininity and my father's failure to affirm me as a worthy, attractive young woman, I had major confusion regarding my sexual identity. Although I did not choose to have homosexual feelings, it was no surprise that a lesbian successfully seduced me. I lived for five years exclusively as a lesbian. It wasn't until I was thirty-nine that a counselor diagnosed my root problem as post-traumatic stress disorder. This insight combined with learning how to call out to God were the keys to my healing. I am honored to share my story with you!

Jurgen Moltmann's new book is a powerful testament to personal hope in chaotic, even catastrophic, times and one of his most personal and compelling works to date. Debunking the classic images of Christian apocalyptic scenarios, Moltmann instead shows that Christian expectation of the future has nothing to do with a final struggle between God and Satan but everything to do with new beginnings and a horizon of hope -- in our birth, in our many rebirths, and in our resurrection.

A twenty-six-week devotional study by the bestselling coauthor of Women of the Bible Names in the ancient world did more than simply distinguish one person from another, they often conveyed the essential nature and character of a person. This is especially true when it comes to the names of God recorded in the Bible. Praying the Names of God explores the primary names and titles of God in the Old Testament to reveal the deeper meanings behind them. El Shadday, Elohim, Adonay, Abba, El Elyon - God Almighty, Mighty Creator, Lord, Father, God Most High - these are just a few of the names and titles of God that yield rich insights into his nature and character. Praying the Names of God shows readers how to study and pray Gods names by focusing each week on one of the primary names or titles of God. Monday - readers study a portion of Scripture that reveals the name. TuesdayThursday - readers pray specific Scripture passages related to the name. Friday - readers pray Scripture promises connected to the name. By incorporating the divine names and titles into their prayers - and learning about the biblical context in which the name was revealed - readers will gain a more intimate understanding of who God is and how he can be relied on in every circumstance of their lives. Praying the Names of God is a unique devotional, one that offers a rich program of daily prayer and study designed to lead people into fresh encounters with the living God.

The 2014 Christianity Today Book Award Winner (Christianity and Culture) 2014 Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year (Compassion) We want to save the world—and we have a dizzying array of worthy causes to pursue. But passionate enthusiasm can quickly give way to disillusionment, compassion fatigue or empty slacktivism. As we move from awareness to mobilization, we bump up against the complexities of global problems—and liking Facebook pages only goes so far. Veteran activist Tyler Wigg-Stevenson identifies the practical and spiritual pitfalls that threaten much of today's cause-driven Christianity. He casts an alternate vision for doing good based on the liberating truth that only God can save the world. Wigg-Stevenson's own pilgrimage from causes to calling shows how to ground an enduring, kingdom-oriented activism in the stillness of vocation rather than in the anxiety of the world's brokenness. The world is not ours to save. And that's okay. Discover why.

Grounding Our Passion for Justice in Deeply Rooted Faith Justice requires perseverance--a deep perseverance we can't muster on our own. The world's needs are staggering and even the most passion-driven reactions, strategies, and good intentions can falter. But we serve a God who never falters, who sees the needs, hears the cries, and gives strength--through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit--to his people. Offering a comprehensive biblical theology of justice drawn from the whole story of Scripture, this book invites us to know more intimately the God who loves justice and calls us to give our lives to seek the flourishing of others. The authors explore stories of injustice around the globe today and spur Christians to root their passion for justice in the persevering hope of Christ. They also offer practices that can further form us into people who join God's work of setting things right in the world. Now in paper with an added reader's guide.
