Women don’t understand men’s spiritual needs but they want to and desperately need to know what they can do (and should not do) to keep their men engaged at church. In the follow-up to his bestselling Why Men Hate Going to Church, author David Murrow speaks directly to women to help them understand the real reasons men resist Christianity. He offers a way of talking about faith that intrigues men instead of repels them and then challenges them to bring more risk and adventure to their own walk with the Lord.
Moving Beyond the Myths debunks common myths that have discouraged women through the ages. Lies taught and bought by women keep them from experiencing the abundant life in Christ. Jan Silvious wants to set women free from these so-called myths by giving them the practical tools to recognize them, debunk them, and replace them with Truth. In Moving Beyond the Myths, she offers women hope and encouragement through Scripture. Silvious addresses different attitudes about women over the centuries and scrutinizes them in light of the teaching and attitude of Jesus toward women. Forward by Kay Arthur.
Competent to Minister – The Biblical Care of Souls, by Martin and Deidre Bobgan.
COMPETENT TO MINISTER: THE BIBLICAL CARE OF SOULS is for Christians who want to know what the Bible says about ministering the care of souls to one another. Who is equipped and qualified to minister God’s care and counsel to fellow believers? When we think of people who influenced our Christian growth, we remember people who lived the Christian life. They loved and served in humility and faith. Yet, when it comes to counseling, which we call personal ministry, most Christians consider themselves unprepared. May this book encourage you as you discover that God has given believers all they need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1) and for ministering this life to one another. Believers, guided by the Word and empowered by the Holy Spirit, are equipped and called to minister to one another in the Body of Christ as they look to the Lord and His Word for help and rely on the Holy Spirit to be the true Counselor. By relying on the Lord, mutual care in the Body of Christ is a creative, spiritual process involving a person who needs help and another person who will come alongside as God’s instrument of mercy and truth. What we present in this book is just one small glimpse of what is totally available in the Bible. The Scriptures provide an infinite number of possible applications of truth to be ministered through a believer who has been transformed by the Cross of Christ to one who by God’s grace receives and responds. We pray that as you read this book, you will be encouraged to seek the springs of Living Water for yourself and for others. The Word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit provide power for caring for one another as people are confronted by the trials, tribulations, and sufferings of life.
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.

Each meditation includes a Scripture to ponder and an opportunity to respond to God in prayer. Here are memorable thoughts to cling to through the hours of the day…and night!
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.
