SNEAK PEEK: Jesus: Listening for His Voice by Kay Arthur and David Arthur

cover image


Jesus spoke words of life and truth. How well are you listening?

 Click here to download an excerpt from Jesus: Listening for His Voice. 

True listening isn’t simply hearing the words of Jesus; it involves belief that results in active commitment. Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus interacted with people from all walks of life. In every case, those individuals could choose to believe His words and reap the rewards of faith—or resist the truth and miss out on everything that truly matters.

 This same choice is yours today. In this second book in a three-part study of the gospel of Mark, you can read for yourself the words of Jesus in Mark 7–13. If you then align yourself with the One who is truth, you’ll experience for yourself the freedom that comes from truly listening for and following the voice of the Savior.

A touch from Jesus can change everything.

The first six chapters of Mark’s gospel overflow with stories of people drawing near to Jesus, longing to experience firsthand the touch of the Savior. Over and over, Jesus responded with compassion, interacting on a personal level with individuals who had been cast aside by society, their circumstances deemed beyond hope.

 As you delve into their stories in this powerful study—the first in a three-part study of the gospel of Mark—you’ll discover for yourself the difference it makes when you engage with Jesus personally and experience His touch in your life.

What does it take to fuel a faith that burns bright, no matter what?

At different times in our spiritual journey, we may discover that we’ve somehow developed apathy toward the things of God. Instead of being fueled by spiritual passion, our faith seems to be running on autopilot—or maybe sputtering to a halt as we seek excuses to avoid spiritual engagement.

Through this six-week study, your eyes will be opened to the things that can undermine our interest in the things of God, and you’ll discover practical steps you can take to ignite a fire that will propel you toward a deeper, more meaningful faith.

Discover afresh the good news of the gospel.

Click here to download an excerpt from Understanding His Death and Resurrection. 

The long-awaited Messiah had finally arrived—only to be betrayed and sentenced to death. Why would Jesus, who knew beforehand all that would happen and who held the power of heaven at His command, submit to being humiliated, tortured, and ultimately killed?

In this powerful study centered on the final chapters of the gospel of Mark, you’ll consider for yourself all that Jesus endured to bring forgiveness to sinners and hope to the hopeless. And you’ll understand as never before why it’s so essential to share with others the good news of His death and resurrection.

As women, we are constantly evaluating ourselves. Am I enough? Why can’t I change this certain thing about myself? Should I be doing more?

 We long for real, deep, lasting change—but we don’t know how to begin. In Meet the New You, Elisa Pulliam empowers women to take charge of their own life transformation by engaging in a meaningful relationship with God and His Word. Each chapter gives practical and interactive ways to address some of the biggest obstacles that stand in the way of permanent change. Through stories, biblical application, personality assessments, thought-provoking questions, and life-coaching principles, Meet the New You helps women:

  • understand who they are
  • cultivate a vision for who they want to become
  • recognize what holds them back
  • determine the steps necessary to  put new, practical habits into action

 It’s time to discover who you really are and how you can live life differently. It’s time to meet the new you!

Best-selling author Sigmund Brouwer has received the 2015 Alberta Reader’s Choice Award for his historical novel Thief of Glory (WaterBrook Press). Sponsored by the Edmonton Public Library, the Alberta Readers’ Choice Award is given annually for the best fiction or narrative non-fiction book written by an Alberta author.

“In Thief of Glory, for the first time in two decades of writing, Sigmund Brouwer took on the challenge of bringing a powerful family story to the page. We are so pleased to see this amazing novel again recognized for its excellence and, particularly, by readers in Alberta,” said Shannon Marchese, Senior Editor at WaterBrook Press.

 Thief of Glory, a sweeping story that combines World War II romance and intrigue in the Pacific naval theater, was inspired by Brouwer’s parents’ experience during World War II.

Brouwer also received the 2015 Christy Award for Thief of Glory in both the Book of the Year and Historical Romance categories. He is the author of nearly 30 novels, with close to four million books in print. Brouwer divides his time between Red Deer, Alberta and Nashville, Tennessee.
