Grow Like Jesus is the first book to delve into Luke 2:52, "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."—a verse that spans the gap between Jesus the child and Jesus at the start of his ministry—and unpack its lessons in ways that are simple to understand but deep enough to drive meaningful changes in a person’s life. While we don’t know if Jesus performed miracles while living in Egypt, if he caught fireflies at night as a kid or if he went to sleepovers with his friends, we can be sure he wasn’t just hanging around eating lentils and pomegranates. Based on Luke 2:52, we know he was growing in four specific areas: wisdom, stature, favor with God, and favor with people. In other words, he grew intellectually, physically, spiritually and socially. As it turns out (and it shouldn’t come as a surprise) continual growth in these four areas will prepare us for success in life as followers of Christ—the type of success that allows us to know God and make him known; in other words, real success. The practical, applicable and accessible knowledge of Grow Like Jesus is perfect for anyone new to a faith in Christ or looking to breathe new life into their existing faith.

Forging Grit is a fictional story that brings to life the science-backed theory that grit matters, and that any leader can develop it. Set in Nepal, it recounts the experiences of a business leader who encounters some extreme misfortune while taking a break from a special assignment in India. Through his own pain and suffering and through witnessing the ingenuity and grit of the people in a remote tribal village, this leader learns some life-changing lessons about what grit is, why it matters, and how to develop it. Thompson and Caldwell unpack an understanding of grit as a passion for getting something done and the fortitude to see it through even when obstacles seem overwhelming. People with grit establish who they are and what they believe, demonstrate perseverance and tenacity, and approach challenges with a passion that fuels their drive to accomplish the things they need to get done. Forging Grit not only paints a picture of what grit looks like, it provides tools to help you develop it as a skill for your work and personal life.

Anyone who wants to grow and wants to help others to grow in the Lord will find a practical approach within Beyond Discipleship to Relationship. Are you interested in growing a more intimate relationship with Christ? Think about how you first decided seriously to follow Jesus.

Beyond Discipleship to Relationship was written to: • inspire individual intimacy with the Lord • initiate shifts or revitalize your lifestyle as an imitation of the Gospel story • delve into particular events in the Bible, pausing for further reflection • nurture desire that others will see Christ in the lives we live. “Psalm 100:5 ‘And His truth endureth to all generations.’ God’s truth dwells in you. It is my belief that to God’s glory your work will magnify Him. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of that process.” —Raymond Whitaker, Deacon Board chairman and Sunday school teacher, Angel Visit Baptist Church; Essex County School Board chairman

"Make Disciples." Jesus' command is clear. But what is a disciple? And how are we to "make" them? Based on decades of experience, this book explains and illustrates the process of disciple-making that Jesus taught and modeled. First published in 1974, its practical, biblical approach has revolutionized the ministry of hundreds of thousands of Christians as they learned how to multiply themselves in the lives of others. Disciple-making is challenging, to be sure. But as we are faithful to Christ's Great Commission, we'll experience the fulfillment that comes from being faithful to the life mission to which God has called us.

The New York Times bestselling final volume in the Pope’s Jesus of Nazareth series, detailing how the stories of Jesus’ infancy and childhood are as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago. In 2007, Joseph Ratzinger published his first book as Pope Benedict XVI in order “to make known the figure and message of Jesus.” Now, the Pope focuses exclusively on the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life as a child. The root of these stories is the experience of hope found in the birth of Jesus and the affirmations of surrender and service embodied in his parents, Joseph and Mary. This is a story of longing and seeking, as demonstrated by the Magi searching for the redemption offered by the birth of a new king. It is a story of sacrifice and trusting completely in the wisdom of God as seen in the faith of Simeon, the just and devout man of Jerusalem, when he is in the presence of the Christ child. Ultimately, Jesus’ life and message is a story for today, one that speaks to the restlessness of the human heart searching for the sole truth which alone leads to profound joy.
