The Name – Franklin Graham

The Name is a lightning rod because The Name represents the division of life between good and evil, God and Satan, light and darkness, righteousness and sin, heaven and hell. The Name shouts out a choice: Whom will you serve, give your life to, depend on? Rebellious, self-willed, sinful people want to retain the right to decide themselves what way they will take. Jesus denies this option. Speaking on His behalf, the apostle Peter said, “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Jesus is gentle, but He is not weak. He loves the sinner but is absolutely intolerant of sin. He is not a negotiator. He is Lord!

The son of Rev. Billy Graham and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association assures readers that in these days of religious confusion and cultural relativism, that there are absolutes in the kingdom of God, and that our salvation lies in the name of Jesus.

Final Words from the Cross

In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words”—statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves:

    • Father Forgive Them
    • Today You Will Be with Me in Paradise
    • Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother
    • My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?
    • I Thirst
    • It Is Finished . . . Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit
    • Postscript: The Words After That

In 24 Hours That Changed the World, Adam Hamilton took us on a Lenten journey through the last day of Jesus’ life. Now in this inspiring follow-up book, Hamilton explores these final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross.

Each chapter begins with the biblical account followed by a first-person story as might have been told from the viewpoint of one of the characters at the cross. Then the chapter explores the meaning of Jesus’ dying words for our lives today. Following the last statement, a postscript recounts the words Jesus spoke following his resurrection, including what truly were the final words Jesus spoke while walking this earth.

Family Driven Faith

Family Driven Faith – Doing what it takes to raise sons and daughters who walk with God. By Voddie Baucham Jr.

More teens are turning away from the faith than ever before: it is estimated that 75 to 88 percent of Christian teens walk away from Christianity by the end of their freshman year of college. Something must be done.

Family Driven Faith equips Christian parents with the tools they need to raise children biblically in a post-Christian, anti-family society. Voddie Baucham, who with his wife has overcome a multigenerational legacy of broken and dysfunctional homes, shows that God has not left us alone in raising godly children.

This bold book is an urgent call to parents―and the church―to return to biblical discipleship in and through the home. This paperback edition includes a new preface and a study guide to facilitate interaction in small-group settings and to help parents put principles into practice.
