SNEAK PEEK: A CONTRARIAN’S GUIDE TO KNOWING GOD by Larry Osborne

Read the first chapter of A Contrarian’s Guide.

“Contrarian thinking at its best simply asks, Is this really true? It speaks up when the politically correct answer or the conventional wisdom doesn’t match reality – when things simply don’t work the way everyone says they should.”
– Larry Osborne

If you don’t fit the mold…
If you’re tired of adjusting to other people’s definitions of spirituality…
If traditional spiritual disciplines just aren’t working for you…
If all the standard answers aren’t enough…
…but your deepest desire
is to know God more…
Here’s Spirituality for the Rest of Us

SNEAK PEEK: GOD CODE by Timothy P. Smith

Read the first chapter of God Code.

The book that inspired the major History Channel series, “God Code,” shows there is more to the Bible than meets the eye–messages from God hidden for ages, now revealed by modern computer technology.

In God Code Timothy Smith reveals his quest over decades to understand the complex messages he discovered in an ancient Hebrew manuscript of the Bible–some of them applying specifically to him! His painstaking search has involved adventure and mystery, but instead of consulting ancient maps to find buried treasure, this hunt has relied on the data calculation power of modern technology. God Code shows how Scripture is more amazing than we ever dreamed…a unique, layered book that may even reveal the future of generations living today. In the companion History Channel series, the author travels across continents in search of artifacts missing since [ … ]

SNEAK PEEK: THE BURDEN IS LIGHT by Jon Tyson

Read the First Chapter of The Burden Is Light.

A NYC pastor and global influencer inspires readers to find their most meaningful and purposeful life. Surprising to many, this life is not measured by success, comparison, or accolades. Rather, free and joyful living stems from a God-centered celebration of our union with Christ and the lives of those around us. 

Jon Tyson’s exploration of the reverse economy of the kingdom frees his readers from merit-based living…not just in terms of salvation, but daily, earthly value. Life is not meant to be a series of competitions or a survival of the fittest rat race. Yet so many of the messages around us, so many of the voices bombarding our hearts and minds tie up our value and package it with our accolades.

This book gives another way forward. It shows [ … ]

Read the first chapter of A Prairie Girl’s Faith.

The beloved author of the Little House books was not only one of America’s great pioneer storytellers but a woman of vibrant faith.

Although the faith of the Ingalls’ family pervades books in the Little House series, the more specific details of Laura’s faith have never been fully explored.
