    The popular preacher and public intellectual continues to take on the SBNRs (the spiritual but not religious) and shows Christians how to reach them. Sloppy talk about the Christian religion has become an acceptable prejudice, especially on the part of people who pride themselves as being unprejudiced. Daniel’s next book provides humorous yet intellectual commentary on the way religion gets talked about today. She explains Christian ideas and practices in non-academic, yet non-facile terms. In her signature style, popularized in widely debated articles for The Huffington Post and Christianity Today, she outlines four types of non-church-goers: no-longer, no-way, never-have, not-yet. And with experiential insight from more than a decade as a pastor, she explains how churches of all denominations and doctrines can provide them intellectual rigor, reasons for belief, and authentic religious community. No one should have to check their brain at the door of the church, she says, and churches must deal with present-day issues and be intellectually open, inviting people to bring questions, rather than dispensing old, easy answers.

    Are you getting the spiritual nourishment you need? We have all experienced times when we have not eaten a balanced diet or have eaten too many sweets. We feel sick, light-headed, and occasionally depressed, or we become irritable and edgy. It’s the body’s way of letting us know that it’s lacking sufficient nourishment. Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sufficient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner life begins to suffer the consequences. We become shallow and selfish, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition. In Searching the Scriptures, respected Bible teacher Charles Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into scripture and uncover its profound truths for our lives. He outlines the principles of Bible study that will help you understand God’s Word, apply it, and communicate it clearly to those around you. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide for this life and the next. Swindoll explains how we can fix our own spiritual meals and then invites us to feast on nourishing truths we can discover in God’s Word.

    Are you a spiritual person? A mature Christian? The apostles do not think that you are unless you have mastered the basic principles of the oracles of God. The writer of the book of Hebrews wanted to present his readers with some exciting thoughts about Jesus, but he felt frustrated because his readership seemed unprepared for these deeper, spiritual lessons. He wanted to go deep, but his readers were still shallow. They did not have the basics down. He wrote, "It is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food" (Hebrews 5:11-12). The author then proceeds to provide a list of six elementary principles he expected his readers to have already mastered: "Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment" (Hebrews 6:1-2). In Elementary Principles, D. Thomas Lancaster takes readers back to first-century Messianic Judaism to explore what he calls "an apostolic catechism," the foundational basics of discipleship to Jesus of Nazareth. Think you know it all already? Get ready to rethink your religion. This book of "basics" challenges common Christian assumptions while laying out clear, biblical definitions for all followers of Jesus.

    Play with Fire, the debut book by popular speaker and teacher Bianca Juarez Olthoff, is the reminder that God isn’t waiting until you have more resources or a spouse or a job so he can use you. He’s ready to use you now. Using the mythical creature, the Phoenix, which was also referenced by early church leaders, she parallels this story with God’s work in her own life, highlighting the beauty of reinvention with fire as both the impetus and the method for change. Olthoff reminds us that we serve a God who is redemptive and can take the worst situations and use them for his glory. Play with Fire is a bible-infused message that will help women discover: The way out of the middle is moving forward The personal and powerful nature of the Holy Spirit The power and sacrifice of transformation The unique calling and purpose of life involves transformation With Olthoff’s distinct style, strong storytelling gifts, and powerful bible teaching, Play with Fire will remind readers that God has huge dreams for them. In Bianca’s words, “he’s whispering in the wind and speaking through the fire and shouting in silence the extraordinary dream he is birthing in you. His dream for you is far greater than the dream you have for yourself. It’s not your identity or income or influence that will make this happen. Like Zechariah 4:6 says, ‘It’s not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord.” It’s time to play with fire.

    In a culture that values speed, efficiency, image, and busyness, some of us are aching for another way to live: more intentional, more connected. Simpler, slower, richer. Many of us have believed the myth that achievement and success bring us contentment, only to find it’s actually things like connection and meaning, not success and achievement, that provide true peace and genuine happiness. Present Over Perfect is bestselling author Shauna Niequist’s motto for how to live a rich, engaged, and loving life in the midst of what often feels terribly messy and imperfect. Similar in format to Shauna’s previous books, Present Over Perfect is a collection of essays that focuses on the journey from frantic and tired to connected and free. Many of us find ourselves busier than we want to be, missing the sweetest moments along the way. We end up resentful and distracted, full of regret and feeling disconnected. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out to a new way of living—full of grace, space, and connection. As a wife, mother, friend, and writer, Shauna shares with vulnerability and transparency about the reality of living wholly present in our relationships with our families and the others we love and inspires readers to discover their own path to this more fulfilling way to do life.

    In many ways society teaches us to try to have everything under our control. If we are honest, we tend to think that this can be true even of our spiritual lives. But Mark Yaconelli eloquently expresses the reality of our situation: “We are small, sensitive creatures with short life spans in a world that is often chaotic, capricious, mysterious, terrible, and wonderful all at the same time. Failure, disappointment, loss, and other difficult experiences call us to accept our humanity, feel grateful for what has been given, receive the care of others, and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit.” Using extraordinary stories from his own life and the lives of others, Yaconelli offers a narrative journey through ways in which disappointments have turned into gifts. In this audio is a wealth of spiritual practices that will carry us deeper into the grace we find in unexpected places.

    From the heights of athletic success to the depths of depression and personal defeat, all-American soccer star Mo Isom shows listeners that pain, suffering, and adversity can either derail them or create an unshakable faith, enabling them to live more boldly. Jesus promises peace and trouble for his followers. But most of us accept the peace and are confused and angry when adversity comes our way. All-American soccer star Mo Isom knows the struggle firsthand. While her life seemed like a success, she was battling an eating disorder, the suicide of her father, and a horrific car accident. It wasn’t until God wrecked her life that she discovered the glory of renewal through Jesus Christ, and that wreckage can be sacred rather than scarring. Listeners take the journey from broken to bold with her and learn to surrender their lives to the king who was wrecked on their behalf.

    It wasn’t supposed to be this way. We start out with hearts brimming with hope and excitement. And that energy carries us for a while, maybe even years. But one day we suddenly find ourselves like the man in the prodigal son story: half dead, going through the dreaded motions, hoping no one around us notices. But they do. It’s not that we’ve stopped loving God; it’s just that things have happened along the way that have caused us to settle for small lives defined primarily by activity for God. We look around and sigh: It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Author Greg Hawkins knows that reality firsthand. He also knows there is something beyond that reality if we have the courage to step out and hope once more. Far from simply more stuff to do, Greg shares the necessary and doable shifts in our thought and language that lead to true intimacy with God. That’s the life of more we’ve hoped for all along, the life where everything is waiting for us!

Murray wrote, “Without humility, there can be no true abiding in God’s presence or experience of his favor and the power of his spirit. Without it there can be no abiding faith or love or joy or strength.”

Most significantly, Steve shows that only through risking it all will we discover what God is truly like.

    God is with you. Your story is not over. You are not defeated. In the Bible it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. But day 41 came, and the rain stopped.

    Everywhere we look, we see evidence that love is in short supply. Terrorists and political corruption, school shootings and troubled marriages, impatient online sniping and character assassination—all point to the fact that we do not know how to love one another as Jesus commanded and modeled. We put our own interests and happiness first, despite the fact that the greatest happiness comes through sacrificial love. In this book, Dr. Larry Crabb shows readers how to understand the deep and perfect love we are shown by our creator and redeemer, and how to pour that love into other people. This love is about more than being nice and serving others. It’s about relating to others in such a way that they feel heard, seen, and valued. This love sacrifices and suffers and keeps loving, even when doing so is costly. This kind of love, says Crabb, is the kind worth fighting for in all of our relationships, and A Different Kind of Happiness shows how to make it a reality.
