But depending on how you navigate each season, your relationship will either strengthen and grow, or it will slowly begin to fade.

The Case for Christmas

Who was in the manger that first Christmas morning? Some say he would become a great moral leader. Others, a social critic. Still others view Jesus as a profound philosopher, a rabbi, a feminist, a prophet, and more. Many are convinced he was the divine Son of God.

Who was he really? And how can you know for sure?

Consulting experts on the Bible, archaeology, and messianic prophecy, award-winning legal journalist Lee Strobel searches out the true identity of the child in the manger. If Jesus really was God in the flesh, then there ought to be credible evidence, including:

Eyewitness Evidence—Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted?

Scientific Evidence—What does archaeology reveal?

Profile Evidence—Did Jesus fulfill the attributes of God?

Fingerprint Evidence—Did Jesus uniquely match the identity of the Messiah?

I Promise (Christy & Todd the College Years #3)

Christy Miller and Todd Spencer are engaged at last! But now the wedding work begins. Todd’s breezy view of life clashes with Christy’s meticulous planning. The issues of when and where to get married seem obvious––until everyone’s expectations are compared. Then Aunt Marti, Mrs. I–Love–to–Plan–a–Party, jumps in, ready to lay siege over each wedding detail. It’s enough to make anyone sing the wedding–bell blues.

Meanwhile, Katie has some unanticipated news of her own. Her renewed relationship with Rick is developing, but everyone wonders what’s going on. Is Rick about to break her heart again, or could this be something lasting?

As the time draws closer to the wedding, Todd and Christy face differences between them that might make married life more complicated than they thought, and Christy wonders if their relationship can work when put to the test. Will they make it down the aisle to tell each other “I promise” for the rest of their lives?

The Book on Leadership

More than ever, people are talking about leadership. But much of today’s discourse is advancing the same old misconceptions.

In The Book on Leadership, best-selling author, pastor, and teacher John MacArthur sets the record straight: Leadership does not come from a job title. It isn’t a matter of personality or charisma. And it isn’t the same thing as iron-fisted authority. True leadership – the kind that refuses to bend to a shifting, fickle world – comes from a much deeper source.

Based on the writings of one of the most effective spiritual leaders of all time (the apostle Paul) MacArthur presents the “26 Characteristics of a True Leader.” Whether you are a business leader, civic leader, church leader, parent, teacher, or student, the life of Paul will empower you to unleash your own capacity for leadership.

Who put Jesus on the Cross?

The chapters of this book were originally preached as sermons at Southside Alliance Church in Chicago by A. W. Tozer. Whether spoken or written, Tozer’s words were designed to “promote personal heart religion” among God’s people.

A few chapter titles: What is it costing you to be a Christian? Will you allow God to reproduce Christ’s holiness in you? Are there shortcuts to the beauty of holiness?

Captivating – Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul

Every little girl has dreams of being rescued by the hero, of being swept away into a great adventure, of being the beautiful princess. Sadly, when women grow up, they are taught to be tough, efficient, and independent. Many Christian women are tired, struggling under the weight of the pressure to be a “good servant,” a nurturing caregiver, passionate lover, or capable home manager.

What the Wild at Heart Field Manual did for men, the Captivating can do for women. By revealing the three distinctly female desires every woman shares, John and Stasi Eldredge invite participants to recover their feminine hearts, which may have suffered many wounds but were originally defined in the image of a passionate God.
