In His Steps

The penetrating and provocative question “What would Jesus do?” in all of life’s complex situations, is the central theme of this book. It is the soul-stirring novel of men and women torn between their faith and the demands, compulsions, and temptations of life. Dr. Henry Maxwell, respected pastor of the First Church of Raymond, struggled with the idea that Christian discipleship demanded more than mental assent. He vowed to preface every attitude and action of his own life with the question: What would Jesus do in this situation if He were me? Electrifying his congregation with the same challenge, people responded with agreement to try it for one year. This book is the moving, dramatic story of a handful of Americans–a newspaper editor, a college president, a railroad executive, a pastor, a singer, a writer, a wealthy philanthropist–who pledge to walk in “the steps of Jesus.” At each turning point in their daily lives, they must ask: “What would Jesus do?” For decades, readers have been gripped by this narrative and have been challenged by its implications for their own lives. In His Steps is a convincing testimony to the worth and influence of Christian witness in all of life.

And the Shofar Blew

n the Old Testament, God called His people to action with the blast of the shofar, a ram’s horn. He still calls His people today. In this relevant and timely novel, dynamic young preacher Paul Hudson is committed to building his church―but at what cost? When Paul accepted the call to pastor the struggling church, he had no idea what to expect. But it didn’t take long for Paul to turn Centerville Christian Church around. Attendance is up, way up, and everything is going so well. If only his wife, Eunice, could see it that way. Still, he tries not to let her quiet presence distract him. But Eunice knows that something isn’t right . . . and it hasn’t been for a long time. The more Paul’s zeal and ambition builds, the more he loses sight of the One who called him. As Paul and those around him struggle to discern what it truly means to live out their faith, they must ultimately choose between their own will and God’s plan.

How Does God See America?

Does America still trust God and his word today? Or have we fallen so far away that his judgment is almost certain-and soon? If we want to know the Lord’s heart for America, the best place to start is by looking at his heart for Israel. His relationship with them centered on three questions: 1. Do they respect God’s truth? 2. Do they respect each other? 3. Do they respect God? To apply these questions to America, Dr. Jim Denison and his son, Ryan Denison, take an in-depth look at the most challenging issues of our day. From sexuality to abortion and suicide, from postmodernity and relative truth to our doubts about God-every major issue America faces today is no surprise to God. In fact, what if God is using this time and these issues to help us turn back to him? And what if he’s using you to launch America’s next Great Awakening?

When God Breaks Through

“Vance Havner used the Word of God like a sword. You pick any one of his books and you could sense the presence and power of the Holy Spirit leaping off those pages.” —Billy Graham

Licensed to preach at the age of twelve and ordained at fifteen, Havner spent a lifetime calling people to repentance. A popular revivalist known for his homespun storytelling and memorable wordplay, Havner boldly proclaimed the Word of God for seventy-three years.

The author of more than thirty books, Havner’s sermons are favorites among pastors who find his style refreshing, his quotes memorable, and his message convincing.  In this collection of ten revival sermons, Havner’s hard-hitting words proclaim the biblical message of heaven, hell, sin, repentance, sacrifice, holiness, prayer, and the lordship of Christ—themes that resonate with as much relevance today as when Havner first preached them.
