SNEAK PEEK: WALK ON by Ben Malcolmson

Read the first chapter of Walk On.

In this true, compelling account of perseverance and hope from Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll’s assistant, a young journalist walks on to a top-ranked USC football team and, guided by his faith, shares God’s love, launching him on an unexpected journey with an amazing outcome.

Had anyone told Ben Malcolmson that he’d someday be a wide receiver on the national champion USC football team–after not playing football since an unfortunate fifth-grade Pop Warner experience–he would have called them crazy. As a reporter for The Daily Trojan, in the spirit of George Plimpton, he participated in walk-on tryouts for the team and was dumbfounded to find himself listed on the roster. His position on the team never amounted to much in a game-time contribution, but Ben felt strongly that his faith was inextricably linked to [ … ]

Read the first chapter of God of Tomorrow.

With a voice of reason and grace, pastor Caleb Kaltenbach challenges the church to choose the path of hope in response to polarizing cultural issues that are straight from the front pages of today’s newspapers.

Divergent politics, immigration issues, bullying, re-defining family, racism, terrorism, new ways of categorizing people, and multiple other issues are negatively impacting our communities today. Some feel the country we live in now isn’t the same one they lived in twenty years ago. Culture is consistently changing, and many Christians are nervous about what tomorrow will bring.

However, we don’t need to worry, because we serve the God of tomorrow. Culture will always change, but God never changes. God owns tomorrow. He has been in tomorrow, prepared tomorrow, and will walk with us into tomorrow. He will [ … ]

Read the first chapter of Made Like Martha.

An invitation for overachievers to discover what it means to rest as God’s daughters without compromising their God-given design as doers.

Though she didn’t sit at Jesus’s feet like her sister Mary, biblical Martha was loved just as she was–and you are too. This practical resource invites modern-day Marthas to sit down spiritually as they exchange try-hard striving for hope-filled freedom without abandoning their doer’s heart in the process.

This book is not an exhortation to add or subtract things off your to-do list, but it is an invitation to embrace the “good” of the Good News. Here is an offer [ … ]

SNEAK PEEK: SHAKE FREE by Samuel Rodriguez

Read the first chapter of Shake Free.

There is a way to confront problems in life, shake them off, and move on.

Based on the story (see Acts 27-28) of the Apostle Paul’s near catastrophic shipwreck, this is a call to individuals to shake off problems and disasters in life and move forward to new health and wholeness.

But as Paul predicted, everyone did survive–even though they made it to safety only by grasping “broken pieces of wood.” In his unique way, Rodriguez compellingly explains that “God makes wonderful things in our life come from our broken pieces. Because of Christ in our life, we have the power to shake off fear, rejection, and failure–just like Paul later shook off the viper that should [ … ]
