What God Wishes Christians Knew About Christianity By Bill Gillham

Do you struggle with feeling as though the Christian life is more of a burden than a blessing? Sometimes our perspective of what the Bible says can leave us feeling shackled rather than free. That’s when we have to ask ourselves:

  • Am I still trying to measure up to God’s law, or am I resting in His grace?
  • Am I trying to overcome temptation and sin on my own, or am I letting Jesus do it through me?
  • Do I consider myself literally righteous in Christ, or am I just a forgiven sinner who is waiting to become righteous in heaven?

Get ready for many exciting insights that will bring you a new passion for the Christian life…and will turn your defeats into victories because you’re living in God’s power rather than your own!

Wild At Heart By John Eldridge

God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires-aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a “nice guy.” It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death. In this provocative book, Eldredge gives women a look inside the true heart of a man and gives men permission to be what God designed them to be-dangerous, passionate, alive, and free!

Victory Over Darkness By Dr. Neil T. Anderson

“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

I am accepted. I am God’s child (see John 1:12). I have been justified (see Romans 5:1). I am united with the Lord, and I am one spirit with Him (see 1 Corinthians 6:17). Your promise of self-fulfillment is told and retold in Scripture–and the road to discovering it leads to Christ and Christ alone.

In this bestselling study guide, Dr. Anderson poses thought-provoking questions for personal reflection or group study that will help you learn how to grow in the strength and truth of your identity in Jesus Christ. The answer to your question, Just who am I? will be changed forever by Victory Over the Darkness and this study guide.

The Peacemaker By Ken Sande

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers”, but it often seems like conflict and disagreement are unavoidable. Serious, divisive conflict is everywhere-within families, in the church, and out in the world. And it can seem impossible to overcome its negative force in our lives. In The Peacemaker, Ken Sande presents a comprehensive and practical theology for conflict resolution designed to bring about not only a cease-fire but also unity and harmony. Sande takes readers beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers. Biblically based, The Peacemaker is full of godly wisdom and useful suggestions that are easily applied to any relationship needing reconciliation. Sande’s years of experience as an attorney and as president of Peacemaker Ministries will strengthen readers’ confidence as they stand in the gap as peacemakers.
