Good or God?: Why Good Without God Isn’t Enough
These days the terms good and God seem synonymous. We believe what’s generally accepted as good must be in line with God’s will. Generosity, humility, justice—good. Selfishness, arrogance, cruelty—evil. The distinction seems pretty straightforward. But is that all there is to it? If good is so obvious, why does the Bible say that we need discernment to recognize it? Good or God? isn’t another self-help message. This book will do more than ask you to change your behavior. It will empower you to engage with God on a level that will change every aspect of your life.

Facedown (The Worship Series)
Most believers understand that worship is not a compartmentalized aspect of the Christian experience, but rather it is the motivation–the driving force–behind all that we do and are. We exist to worship God. For years we have been basking in God’s love and worshipping Him with uplifted hands and hearts. Now we need to go deeper and see that God is also an awesome, mysterious being who should engender our silent, even dumbstruck, reverence for His holiness, His “otherness.” Until we are undone by the knowledge of who God is in all His glory, we will only touch the edges of true worship. Matt Redman says, “When we face up to the glory of God, we find ourselves face down in worship.” This book shows the biblical record of those who found themselves prostrate before God.

The Great Exchange helps believers see how the Old Testament practices tie in with the New Testament discussion of Christ’s great work of salvation.
