SNEAK PEEK: THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR by Erwin Raphael McManus

Read the first chapter of The Way of the Warrior.

Best-selling author, pastor, futurist, and cultural thought leader believes that to experience and establish peace, we must first confront the battles that rage within.

McManus shows that encountering peace does not occur by accident, but rather by artful intention. Warrior is a call to decisiveness, self-examination, and the pursuit of spiritual wholeness. Through the ancient biblical practices of humility, focus, ownership, clarity, strength, and vulnerability, he guides readers to a deeper understanding of their inner workings and provides the guidance they need to establish peace and tranquility in their homes, neighborhoods, communities, and even the world! In the style of a battle-wizened teacher, McManus delivers wisdom, instills passion, and provides the sacred movements needed to become the warrior you were meant to be.

Read the first several pages of My First Rodeo.

My First Rodeo is a heartwarming collection of stories that reveal the ups, downs, and delights of being a family man, from a guy who never dreamed of being one.

And for those well beyond the child raising years, it will be a poignant reminder of the enduring goodness of family.

SNEAK PEEK: REFORESTING FAITH by Matthew Sleeth, MD

Read the first two chapters of Reforesting Faith.

The Bible talks about trees more than any living creation other than people. Perhaps you’ve missed the forest…and the trees.

In this groundbreaking walk through Scripture, former physician and carpenter Dr. Matthew Sleeth makes the convincing case why trees are essential to every Christian’s understanding of God.

Yet we’ve mostly missed how God has chosen to tell His story—and ours—through the lens of trees. There’s a tree on the first page of Genesis and the last page of Revelation. The Bible refers to itself as a Tree of Life (Proverbs 3:18).
Every major Biblical character has a tree associated with them. Jesus himself says he is the true vine (John 15:1). A tree was used to kill Jesus—and a tree is the only thing the Messiah ever harmed.

Book Trailer: 9 COMMON LIES CHRISTIANS BELIEVE by Shane Pruitt

Maybe God isn’t who you think He is. Maybe He’s better.

When Shane Pruitt and his wife were going through a difficult season with the health issues of their son, they heard cliché after cliché, including “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” The Pruitts found that such unbiblical statements distracted them from the truth that God was with them.

In Nine Common Lies Christians Believe, Shane tackles popular one-liners that have wormed their way into our Christian vernacular, including “God gained another angel,” “Follow your heart,” and “God just wants me to be happy.” As Shane reminds us, when we move past religious jargon and the catchphrases of cultural Christianity, we can focus our minds on the Word of God. Because Scripture offers more than one-liners [ … ]
