Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The past is not an anchor to drag us back but a rudder to guide us into the future. We must remember that all of us are like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants, according to the French philosopher Bernard of Chartres. #2 Martin Luther, the man who sparked the Protestant Reformation, was also a husband and father. He loved his wife, Katherine von Bora, dearly. But he was afraid to marry her because he knew that he would be putting his wife and family in danger. #3 The marriage between Luther and Katherine von Bora was a success, and set a high standard for Christian family life for centuries to come. Luther was always called Doctor Luther by others, but Katherine always called him Doctor Luther by his pet name, Kitty. #4 Luther’s wife, Katherine, was in charge of the home and the students that came to visit Luther. She made the book possible, and it was her table that these sparkling conversations were recorded at.

Sometimes people lose sight of the core of their ministry. They feel overwhelmed by the needs that surround them on a daily basis. Wise and beloved pastor Warren Wiersbe invites ministry leaders to listen in on thirty short "armchair chats" to encourage and strengthen them for service. He shares what he wishes he had known about ministering to others when he began his own Christian pilgrimage. "Ministry," he says, "takes place when divine resources meet human needs through loving channels to the glory of God." With this new edition of a classic book, which includes a foreword by Jim Cymbala, the next generation of ministry leaders can take advantage of Wiersbe's years of wisdom.

Trusting God. It's such a cliché. Yet nothing means more to our heavenly Father than when we surrender our lives completely to him and choose to believe he has our best in mind. David modeled that kind of deliberate dependence: as a shepherd boy, as a man running for his life, as a king who made grave mistakes. In both triumph and failure, David looked to God rather than to himself. In Embracing Trust, Joanna Weaver, bestselling author of the runaway hit Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, shares personal stories, practical tips, and life-changing principles gleaned from Scripture. If you struggle with disappointment from the past, frustration with the present, or fear of the future, Joanna invites you to trust in the Lord with all your heart. Relinquishing control and putting your hope in a forever-faithful Father--that's the beautiful secret of unshakeable faith. Includes a 10-week companion Bible study.

In Real Peace, Warren Wiersbe's practical, Scripture-based teaching helps Christians develop a life of peace and freedom. A combination of two Wiersbe classics, Enjoy Your Freedom and Meet Your Conscience, it shows why true freedom does not come from living as we wish, but from living in relationship to God. Wiersbe also shows how, in Christ, readers can receive freedom from sin, the law, and material things, and become all that God intended them to be. Real Peace explores conscience as a gift from God that helps guard our freedom, approving when we do right and convicting when we do wrong. Wiersbe examines the different types of consciences and explains how a conscience not exercised by obedience to God's Word will gradually become unreliable. Informative and compelling, this guide will delight Wiersbe fans and anyone looking for a vibrant and accessible definition of freedom and peace.

Books on leadership in various aspects of life and work abound. But are the principles upon which these books are grounded biblical? Do they describe the best way for Christians to lead, knowing that they function as ambassadors for Christ as they facilitate meetings, lead people, and manage projects? On Being a Leader for God covers numerous topics that are relevant to Christian leadership in this and every era, including obedience, faithfulness, character, maturity, ability, God's authority, seizing opportunities, biblical images of successful leadership, listening, the difference between a boss and a leader, change management, organizational leadership, and vision. Pastors, deacons, church leaders, and laypeople will find this book both engaging and transformative.
