I had to learn the hard way. You don’t have to! My life sucks! Will things ever get any better? There is no way out of this. For years of my life, I constantly thought and said these things. When I reached my lowest point of desperation, I was a “garbage head,” willing to consume any drug, deep into cocaine addiction, and plagued with depression and anger from which I could not break free.

The creation story is told in the form of a covenant, which was broken in the fall of man. God immediately responded with another covenant. He made covenants with Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and finally the risen Christ. Each new covenant has restored something of what Adam forfeited in the Garden of Eden.
What we know as the New covenant is not God’s final word. Actually, Scripture contains a promise of a covenant yet to come after Christ returns in victory. After all, we have not yet received back everything Adam lost.
Getting to know these covenants helps us to understand the relationship between two things that seem incompatible: God’s righteousness and promise of final judgment on the one hand, and his love, grace, and mercy on the other.

Through real life stories, AmyJo Mattheis narrates her upbringing in the church and how she became an ordained minister with questions. Questions about God, fun, sex, money, flirting and more, all come up in a life well lived within the visions and expectations of the Christian church. Can an ordained woman wear red lipstick? Is sexuality dirty? Are women the source of sin? Should pastors not want things? Does everyone really burn in hell who doesn’t know Jesus?
Religion Made Me Fat chronicles the evolution of Mattheis’ understanding of the man Jesus and what his teachings mean to men and women, atheists and others who believe a different way. Through her experiences as a pastor’s kid in California, working in West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer, her time as an intern pastor in Jerusalem and an ordained minister in the United States, Mattheis challenges us to take seriously the role Christianity plays in our intimate and collective lives.

This is an everyday book that applies to everyday life with practical lessons to make us examine them in the light of God’s word.
The 10 to 15 minutes you’d spend daily reading something new may not necessarily change your life, but will surely impact it. You’d become enlightened; have a subject matter to start conversations with, have words to encourage others and inspiration that can be shared.
This is hoping this book transforms, and like the Berean Christians encourage studying God’s word more and openly bragging about your faith.

Being a Proverbs 31 woman seems a little bit intimidating to most of us women, but it can also be viewed as a challenge. The Proverbs 31 woman is an ideal woman that God has in mind for us, and this should be our goal as well. This paraphrase and Bible study gives us a picture of what a Proverbs 31 woman might look like today. As we can see, her employments are many. She buys real estate, she plants a garden, she is a sales person, she is a manufacturer, and she is a distributor. She is like Lydia in Acts 16:14, who was a seller of purple goods. Both of these women were godly women, who worked and helped make money to support their families. Some people believe these were home-based businesses, and I believe that is the ideal, as well. If we can stay at home with our families and work, then I believe we should, but if your employment takes you elsewhere (to the riverside or to the city) then we will do what’s necessary for our family.

Who doesn’t love a good story? Stories capture our attention and our hearts. No wonder the Master Teacher did much of His teaching through short stories. Sometimes deceptively simple and sometimes truly mystifying, Jesus’ little stories were always packed with meaning and deep truths. The fun is in the unpacking!
Parables Plus takes a look-in-detail at the parables according to Matthew (plus related passages), examining one or two parables per week for a twelve-week study. Each of the twelve weeks contains five, daily, personal lessons and one, weekly, group-study application with review questions and summary. Daily lessons are moderate in length, requiring a time investment of twenty to thirty minutes each day. Parables Plus is suitable for anyone from the Bible-novice to the Bible-veteran who still has a novice’s desire to learn more.

Contemplation seen in the eyes of a lay person.
Most people think and believe that contemplation is reserved for only a chosen few. They think that only those who are in the religious state of life can actually become contemplatives.
SIN (acronym for the author’s name Stephen I. Nellas) begs to disagree.
Being a member of the laity himself, the author communicates this fact of contemplation to all his readers. This book is a collection of his mini-reflections on contemplation and prayer. The author moves on to show that indeed, all men and women of all generations were called to contemplate God. The outside world is a great venue to practice contemplation.
This book will surely open your mind about prayer and contemplation. The author hopes to inform and inspire the other members of the laity that contemplation is an open invitation sent out to every person.

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. We are our biggest critic. We doubt ourselves more than anyone else. Why is that? Why do we so often sabotage the success we long for? The answer, in a word, is shame.
Healing the Hurts of Your Past helps you discover the source of nagging hurts, habits and hang-ups in your life and connects the dots to your self-defeating behavior. It then offers a solid Christ-centered approach to find the freedom you’ve always wanted. This book is not a “feel-good” story but a “roll up your sleeves” look at the pain of shame and what to do about it. Questions are offered along the way to help you process the material at a deeper level.
Healing the Hurts of Your Past is a great first step before you seek out counseling or a companion once you start. It’s refreshingly “real” without the typical psychological or religious jargon. A special appendix gives you forty scripture verses that directly address the pain of shame to help you retrain your mind in regard to how you view yourself.

God takes great pleasure in the prosperity of His servants (Psalms 35:27). How much more does he care about us, who are called his children (Romans 8:16)? We ought to prosper in all things and be in health; even as our soul prospers (3 John 1:2) God is looking for a prosperous church. It takes money to print bibles and send missionaries and fund ministries. We ought to be joyful givers. How can we give when we haven’t anything to give? Understanding banking should be a basic part of education in today’s world. But far too many lack the education they need to understand financial principles and use the banking system to their full advantage. This book is written to help people in the skillful use of financial principles and the practical understanding of how a bank works. Some of the questions answered are: “What is the difference between checking accounts?”, “Why do I get overdraft fees?”, and “Should I borrow money?” These questions and more are answered in this book. Enjoy and prosper with the tools you need to set you free through the Word of God in banking and financial matters.

The words contained in these 32 pages call out the error so touted as truth: that you can serve and worship God with your degenerate soul. And more importantly, it is an invitation to enter into your rightful place, in the very Presence of our Abba Father.
Martha has undertaken the masterful task of hearing the Spirit who has laid out so skillfully in these pages the plan of God to bring us to a greater intimacy than was known in Eden. She reveals succinctly His design from the temple in Jerusalem to Jesus’ announcement that a greater Temple was imminent.
God doesn’t just tell us; He shows us! He built on earth a picture of substance, the first temple. Painstakingly, He revealed the spiritual reality of His plans and Martha capsulizes His design in an easy to understand road map.
Those who are His and called to abide in such intimacy will leave these pages with a clear understanding of what is required and to Whom it is given. You will be in no doubt of the passionate pursuit our Father has laid out so that we might enter in.
