Don’t waste your awkwardness. The most difficult subjects in our lives are also the ones that we find most uncomfortable to talk about: divorce, body image, sexuality, pornography, or depression. Our awkward silence reveals the gap that exists between what we are and what we know we should be. But God loves those awkward moments, Sammy Rhodes argues, because they are precisely where we find connection with God and one another. In This Is Awkward, Rhodes talks directly, honestly, hilariously about the most painfully uncomfortable subjects in our lives. In chapters like “Parents Are a Gift (You Can’t Return Them)” and “The Porn in My Side,” he boldly goes where most of us fear to tread, revealing that we can be liberated by the embrace of a God who knows the most shameful things about us and loves us all the same. Because nothing is too awkward for God.

The truth shall set you free. Ignoring it will cost you a fortune. It has become clear that we are living a lie, and it has brought devastating results: Bankruptcy among churchgoers is equally as high as those who don’t attend. Financial misconduct is destroying marriages, families, individuals, and churches. A record number of churches are in foreclosure. The church teaches us it’s normal to have student loans, car payments, mortgages, and credit cards. It calls poverty a curse but isn’t doing much to correct the problem, and it focuses on tithing and the elimination of personal debt—but debt elimination is not enough. Wouldn’t you rather thrive in your finances and live the life God has called you to? Evangelpreneur will teach you: How to get your financial life to line up with your faith life How to save your family and your church from financial ruin How to recognize if God is calling you to entrepreneurship How to use proper financial practices to lead people to salvation and do God’s work on earth For too long, the faithful have been held hostage by false teaching, bad teaching, and the poor practice of good teaching. It’s time to break free from the bondage tied to financial issues and become an Evangelpreneur.

Whether the issue of the day on Twitter, Facebook, or cable news is our sexuality, political divides, or the perceived conflict between faith and science, today’s media pushes each one of us into a frustrating clash between two opposing sides. Polarizing, us-against-them discussions divide us and distract us from thinking clearly and communicating lovingly with others. Scott Sauls, like many of us, is weary of the bickering and is seeking a way of truth and beauty through the conflicts. Jesus Outside the Lines presents Jesus as this way. Scott shows us how the words and actions of Jesus reveal a response that does not perpetuate the destructive fray. Jesus offers us a way forward—away from harshness, caricatures, and stereotypes. In Jesus Outside the Lines, you will experience a fresh perspective of Jesus, who will not (and should not) fit into the sides.

“The God I Love is the book that captures my heart and thoughts in the events, dialogues, memories, images, and scenes of my life—my walk with God.”—Joni Eareckson Tada Joni’s name is synonymous around the world with the words “loving God.” She has lived out these words since the diving accident thirty-six years ago that left her paralyzed from the shoulders down. Now in The God I Love she looks back on the whole of her life through eyes that can see how that accident actually moved her in a new direction, saving her from another tragedy of her own making. This story-driven narrative captures the events and images of Joni’s remarkable life as she describes her life in six themes. She begins with her life as an ordinary girl who is blessed by an extraordinary God—but not without tragic turns. Then she ponders the question, would she have been an artist if she had not broken her neck? She recognizes that through prayer she enters into God’s holy presence and finds that he answers her prayers in full measure. She acknowledges that it is only through the kindness of friends that she has bathed or eaten or done the countless simple tasks that make up everyday life. Because of her unusual situation, her wheelchair has rolled onto platforms around the world where millions of people have heard her speak about her Savior. Through tragedy Joni has come to know God, the living, surprising, wonderful Lord of all. A note from Joni— The God I Love is a memory still unfolding of the journey that keeps taking me deeper into the heart of my Savior. It’s my prayer that this story, which spans over fifty years, will resonate with each person who takes time to pick up the book...it’s my prayer that The God I Love will serve as a roadmap, a guide, a signpost to light the journey of each reader, helping them to see their sweet, soft desperation of Jesus, too.

Do you feel unworthy of God's love? How do you shape your beliefs in this anxiety-filled world of competition and comparison? Many Christians conclude we must earn His Love.We cover our feelings of shame, insecurity, and unworthiness by filling our lives with achievements and activities. But the more hours we spend at work-even the good work of helping others-the more we drift toward the false notion that God's love is something we must earn, like a promotion or a paycheck. We seek to know ourselves independently from God, and feel terribly insecure and lonely as a result. There's a reason: We misunderstand the nature of God's love. In Too Good to be True, Pastor Ricky Jones takes you on his journey to accept God's unconditional love. Using personal stories and biblical references that paint the true picture of grace, Jones shows that being loved by God is not a task to be achieved, but rather the starting point of your own healing and new refreshing, joy-filled life.

Not entitled to get angry? Really? It’s a radical, provocative idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth. It is the number one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says, Christians have not been taught out of it. As it turns out, giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do. In Unoffendable readers will find something of immeasurable value—a concrete, practical way to live life with less stress. They’ll adjust their expectations to fit human nature and replace perpetual anger with refreshing humility and gratitude. The book offers a unique viewpoint, challenging the idea that Christians can ever harbor “righteous anger” or that there evenis such a thing for believers. Few other books exist with such a radical, provocative proposal to consider. We have no right to anger. We are to get rid of it, period. Completely. And it is possible to choose to be “unoffendable.” Through the author’s winsome, humorous, and conversational style, this book doesn’t add another thing to do on a stressed-out person’s ever-growing list. Better, it actually seeks to lift religious burdens from readers’ backs and allow them to experience the joy of gratitude, perhaps for the first time, every single day of their lives.
