I’d Do It Again

When the young nurse sailed out of New York Harbor on the Queen Mary in 1950, she couldn’t have imagined that 32 years later she would receive, in an impressive ceremony, Central African Republic’s highest honor for her service to their people. Margery Benedict has written a candid and caring account of the many African friends who found spiritual and physical healing during her forty-five year ministry. This is a life changing account of one person’s experiences as she followed the path the Lord laid out before her – sometimes through frightening circumstances, sometimes through heartbreaking sadness, sometimes through indescribable joy – but always knowing the Lord was at her side.

And the Word Became Power

This is a great example of what God can do with a person who surrenders her life to Him! It gives the 20 year story of how Joanne Shetler gave of herself to move far away and live among the Balangao people group in the Philippines. This tells many of her adventures along the journey. It goes from learning the culture and language, through the trials and hardships of dealing with a culture that succumbs to evil spirits, and onto the completion of God’s plan for these wonderful people.

Revolution in World Missions: One Man’s Journey to Change a Generation

“Lord, I’ll give myself to speak for You.”

Young Yohannan had no idea what those words of surrender would mean for his life and for millions of others in his generation. Once an insecure 16-year-old, he became a missionary statesman who has impacted the world of missions and whose unbending message has touched hungry hearts on every continent.

Step into his story and experience the world through his eyes. You’ll walk right into the book of Acts. And through his telling, you’ll hear the very heart of God beating for His creation. K.P. Yohannan’s passion is contagious and spurs you on to be all for Jesus.

He chose to take the road less traveled many years ago, and today Gospel for Asia, the mission he founded, is one of the most respected organizations in our time with thousands of national workers and vibrant congregations throughout the heart of the 10/40 Window.

A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael

A Chance to Die is a vibrant portrayal of Amy Carmichael, an Irish missionary and writer who spent fifty-three years in south India without furlough. There she became known as “Amma,” or “mother,” as she founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, a refuge for underprivileged children.

Amy’s life of obedience and courage stands as a model for all who claim the name of Christ. She was a woman with desires and dreams, faults and fears, who gave her life unconditionally to serve her Master.

Bringing Amma to life through inspiring photos and compelling biographical narrative, Elisabeth Elliot urges readers to examine the depths of their own commitment to Christ.

Marriage Under Fire

For the past forty years, the homosexual activist movement has sought to implement a master plan to utterly destroy the family. Unelectable and unaccountable rogue judges have made a habit of inventing rights that not only don’t exist in the Constitution, but also contradict both the will of the people and the actions of the legislative branch.

Christians around the world have scrambled, wondering how to respond. How do we discuss this intelligently? What can we do to make our voices heard? In Marriage Under Fire, Dr. Dobson addresses the dire ramifications of judicial activism and presents compelling arguments against the legalization of homosexual unions—mobilizing the Christian community to respond to a call to action.

Boomers, Xers, and Other Strangers: Understanding the Generational Differences that Divide Us

Ever wonder why your kids, parents, and even coworkers think and feel so differently than you do on core issues?

By recognizing the factors that give rise to our own values and those of other generations, we can achieve greater mutual understanding and reconciliation with our children, peers, and coworkers, rather than finding ourselves in conflict. An effective tool for bridging the generation gap.
