Believing Jesus: Are You Willing to Risk Everything? A Journey Through the Book of Acts Book
Book Title:

Believing Jesus: Are You Willing to Risk Everything? A Journey Through the Book of Acts

by: Thomas Nelson

Product rating: 5.0 with 5 reviews


Are you truly willing to risk everything?

In Believing Jesus, Bible teacher and author Lisa Harper retraces the steps of the apostles in the book of Acts, while throwing in a few of her own crazy adventures along the way. The disciples didn’t have much of a road map after Jesus ascended to heaven, but God’s grace and spirit filled in the gaps as they moved forward. It required their willingness to risk everything to establish a new community that would change the future world.

As a regular speaker on the Women of Faith® tour, Lisa has earned a reputation as a true theological scholar and hilarious storyteller—not necessarily in that order! Best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado calls Lisa one of the “best Bible tour guides around.”

Believing Jesus will highlight both of Lisa’s strengths as she tackles every chapter of the Book of Acts with biblical wisdom and modern wit. Lisa keeps it real, telling stories on herself and pointing readers back to Jesus, the only one who can truly lead.

Ten Men of the Bible: How God Used Imperfect People to Change the World

by: Thomas Nelson

Product rating: 5.0 with 1 reviews


The men depicted in the Bible were not perfect by any means. We find story after story marked by scandal, failure, and intrigue. Yet we also find many stories of men who were able to look beyond their circumstances, completely trust in the Lord, and follow Him wherever He chose to them. Like us, these men made both good and bad decisions along the way—and experienced both good and bad consequences—and we find our struggles and hopes in the pages of the Bible that tells their stories.

In this 10-session workbook, Max Lucado tells some of his favorite stories of these men in the Bible. Stories include:

 

  1. Noah: When You’re Low on Hope
  2. Job: The Most Famous Conversation in the Bible
  3. Jacob: Wrestling with the Past
  4. Moses: The Voice from the Mop Bucket
  5. David: Colossal Collapses
  6. Joseph: Unanswered Questions
  7. Matthew: Friend of Flops
  8. Peter: The Gospel of the Second Chance
  9. Lazarus: The Final Witness
  10. Paul: Don’t Write Off Anyone

 

Each session includes five insights on each character and Bible study questions to help you delve into the stories and apply them to your life.

A Heart So True by Dorothy Love

Love Beyond Limits by Elizabeth Musser

The Curiosity Keeper (A Treasures of Surrey Novel)

by: Thomas Nelson

Product rating: 4.6 with 80 reviews


“It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.”

Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid.

Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession—a ruby called the Bevoy—can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop—and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions.

Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.

Her Brother’s Keeper (An Amish Secrets Novel)

Product rating: 4.7 with 33 reviews


Charlotte came to Amish country to find answers. What she never expected to find was peace.

Charlotte Dolinsky is not above playing dress-up and telling a few lies to find out what happened to her only brother. In fact, that is exactly what she’s come to Lancaster County to do. Now, calling herself Mary and slipping on a kapp, Charlotte will lie her way into the confidence of anyone who knows why Ethan had to die. Unless she gets found out first.

But when Charlotte befriends a quiet Amish man named Isaac Miller, she begins to rethink her motives. And with a little help from a friend back home, Charlotte might find out that love comes packaged in ways she couldn’t have foreseen.

Isaac’s been caring for his cancer-stricken father and sympathizing with his frustrated mother for three difficult years. And that means he hasn’t been dating. He believes Hannah King is the woman for him, but Hannah is still grieving the loss of her fiancé, and Isaac has all he can handle on the farm. When Hannah’s family plays host to a woman named Mary, their new cousin shakes things up for all of them.

As Charlotte digs deeper into the mystery of Ethan’s death, she finds more than she’d bargained for in the community he once called home. But will she ever learn the truth? And what will the community—and her new family—do if they learn the truth about her?

by: Thomas Nelson

Product rating: 4.7 with 3 reviews


**Order the book that inspired the powerful TED talk by New York Times bestselling author Fawn Weaver**

Is an argument-free marriage possible? Fawn Weaver’s answer is yes, absolutely, even when one or both partners are strong willed, independent, and opinionated. (She admits to being all three.) In this groundbreaking book, the best-selling author and award-winning marriage blogger asks readers to invest twenty-eight days in learning how to live together without bickering, blame, angry outbursts, or silent treatments.

Fawn begins with the startling premise that, contrary to popular opinion, conflict in marriage is not necessary or inevitable. Then she leads readers on a day-by-day journey toward a more peaceful and supportive relationship. Chapter by brief chapter, she offers fresh perspectives and practical strategies for communicating effectively, building understanding, and defusing anger while at the same time nurturing honesty, vulnerability, and mutual support.

Through the Eyes of a Lion: Facing Impossible Pain, Finding Incredible Power

by: Thomas Nelson

Product rating: 4.9 with 45 reviews


What will you do when the unthinkable happens in your life?
Her parents called her Lenya Lion because of her ferocious personality and hair that had been wild and mane-like since birth. But they never expected that, five days before Christmas, their five-year-old daughter would suddenly go to heaven after an asthma attack. How do you walk out of an emergency room without your daughter?

In 
Through the Eyes of a Lion, Pastor Levi Lusko shares the eye-opening truth of the power of hope in a world that is often filled with pain, suffering, and loss. He says, “This book isn’t a manual for grieving, but a manifesto for high-octane living, and through it I want you to see that God made you for a purpose. There is a wild and wonderful calling on your life, a microphone in your hands. Jesus wants you to look at the adventure of your life through His eyes, the eyes of a Lion.”

Part memoir but all overtly instructive and deeply inspirational, 
Through the Eyes of a Lion gives readers the tools they need to face their fears and turn their journey into a roar story.
Chapter themes include:
  • Don’t rely on the naked eye
  • Run towards the roar
  • There’s no such thing as a wireless anchor
  • Let God use your pain
  • Cue the eagle

What we do in life really does echo in eternity. You are destined for impact, and there’s not a moment to lose!

Book Title:

The Colson Way: Loving Your Neighbor and Living with Faith in a Hostile World

by: Thomas Nelson

Product rating: 4.8 with 4 reviews


Live with a bold and loving faith in the public square

Chuck Colson’s life reveals that there is no division between truth and love, between embracing biblical guidance and loving one’s neighbor. The Colson Way uses Colson’s legacy and wisdom to show Christians a way of living a public faith with conviction and generosity toward all.

 

“A praiseworthy intellectual achievement and a gift to the Christian community.”

—Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University

 

“Required reading for any Christian seeking to engage in the public square.”

—Frank Wolf, Senior Distinguished Fellow, 21st Century Wilberforce initiative

 

“I was privileged to know and work with Chuck Colson in several respects. He was a man of character and conviction who understood that believers find themselves in ‘two cities,’ as Augustine wrote. As a member of the city of God, I have dedicated my life to strengthening the city of man. I am so thankful to see Owen Strachan’s The Colson Way celebrate this kind of vision. I commend it highly and urge pastors and churches to buy this book—and to share this vision with their people.”

—Mike Huckabee

 

“An honest, enjoyable, and eye-opening look at one of the most significant Christian leaders of the twentieth century.”

—Sean McDowell, Ph.D., author of The Fate of the Apostle
