Is Jesus still the only way?
If the church was ever too confrontational in its evangelism, those days are gone. In our shrinking, pluralistic world, the belief that Jesus is the only way of salvation is increasingly called arrogant and even hateful. In the face of this criticism, many shrink back from affirming the global necessity of knowing and believing in Jesus.
In Jesus: The Only Way to God–Must You Hear the Gospel to Be Saved? John Piper offers a timely plea for the evangelical church to consider what is at stake in surrendering the unique, universal place of Jesus in salvation. If you’re concerned about the current state of evangelism–and the church–this book is a must-read.

After a lifetime of abuse and loss–from fights with other boys staged for his father’s entertainment, to the death of his only son– sixty one year old Vernon Davidson is angry. He’s ready to get back at God, his paper mill coworkers, and everyone else in his north Louisiana town. Constantly drunk to numb his pain, the normally cautious Vernon spirals into recklessness; drinking on the job, facing down a younger man at work over a parking spot, scandalizing his former fellow Baptists with displays of his nakedness. Meanwhile Jody Davidson, Vernon’s estranged nephew, struggles to survive a similarly tragic past by self-imposed exile, inserting himself into a new, seemingly different family a thousand miles away. The two men are reunited when Vernon agrees to retrieve Jody for his dying brother so they can say goodbye-and that’s when they each embark on a journey that will ultimately change their lives.

Your husband or boyfriend has confessed his addiction to porn, or maybe you found it on your own. Your romance is broken. Your heart is in a million pieces. And on top of that … you can’t seem to get over the aching wound that you are not enough.
It doesn’t matter what other people tell you. There is no pain that compares to this one. The burning desire to be the apple of your husband’s eye and to feel like you’ll never measure up, no matter how hard you try. And is life supposed to be one big beauty pageant anyway? Where is the hope and rest? Is it even possible to feel like enough?
There is rest.
When our husband’s or boyfriend’s porn addiction comes out into the open it completely destroys our trust and security, not to mention our self-esteem. It’s difficult to find the broken pieces of our marriage and heart, much less put them back together, especiallywhen we have no support and we’re told to just get over it or grow up.
Beyond the Mirror defines true beauty – beauty that transcends time and reflects the character of Jesus Christ vs. the counterfeit beauty that leads women down a path of endless striving. Ashley Weis, who has been down this long journey of never measuring up and then discovering her husband’s lust for other women, relates to readers and challenges each of us to break the glass of our own reflections and discover the joy and freedom that is waiting beyond the mirror.
Women who want to learn how to find the beauty in the storm and feel content in who God made them to be, women who have spent their entire lives trying to live up to impossible expectations of this world and themselves, women who have felt the numbness of never being good enough … this book is dedicated to you.

‘The Gospel Cannot Be Chained’ is a collection of Paul’s prison letters that he wrote during his first Roman imprisonment (Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon), paraphrased, with a great deal of respect, in a way that highlights the heart of his message. It is amazing that even in prison Paul still knew he was free; he still knew of a far greater reality that was his in Christ. Paul’s letters reveal so much of his heart of love, his joy in God’s greatness, and his uncompromising faith in the redemptive work of Jesus. ‘The Gospel Cannot Be Chained’ is a fresh look at his timeless message of grace.

Those in deepest darkness fight most valiantly for the light.
Hard pressed on every side, the Dibor struggle to overcome insurmountable odds in an effort not just to regain territory, but to survive.
In addition to the growing ranks of the taken, Morgui has summoned the powers of nature to search out and destroy the saviors of Dionia. Tempests hunt those forced to flee by sea, while an otherworldly fire storm chews up the ancient forest of Grandath, destroying anything – or anyone – in its path.
While most of the Dibor manage to survive, the whereabouts of the ill-fated Princess Anorra continues to be unknown. Her faithful friends are unaware of her suffering behind the gates of Haides.
The remaining Dibor soon discover that there is more to Morgui’s madness than simple mayhem, as the dwarves reveal startling knowledge about the Two Trees, and worse still, about Morgui’s attempt to forever thwart the Most High’s plan for victory.
As Creation itself endures death throes caused by mounting evil, one thing is clear: Dionia and her champions will never be as they once were. Nor will those in worlds beyond.
