I Once Was Lost: What Postmodern Skeptics Taught Us About Their Path to Jesus
How do people come to Jesus in today’s postmodern culture? Not by a mechanical, linear process of cookie cutter conversions. Nor by a nebulous spiritual wandering that never culminates in decision and commitment. Over the last decade, Don Everts and Doug Schaupp have listened to the stories of two thousand postmodern people who have come to follow Jesus. While their stories are diverse and varied, certain common themes emerge. Postmodern evangelism is a mysterious and organic process that nevertheless goes through discernible phases, as people cross thresholds from distrust to trust, from complacency to curiosity and from meandering to seeking. Everts and Schaupp describe the factors that influence how people shift in their perspectives and become open to the Gospel. They provide practical tools to help people enter the kingdom, as well as guidelines for how new believers can live out their Christian faith.
Wholehearted: Three Life-Changing Commands of Jesus
Have you ever wondered if there was more to the Christian faith than just “accepting Christ”? Do you feel the need to give your relationship with Christ a boost? “Wholehearted” will show you how, and will also help you make a lasting impact on your family and community. By looking at three truly life-changing commands given to us by Jesus, Roger Wernette guides the reader to a new understanding of what Christianity is all about. He shows you how just eleven words—love God, obey God, & teach others to love and obey God—will unlock God’s power in your own life as never before. Thoroughly biblical, “Wholehearted” is both challenging and uplifting. Whatever your age and stage in the Christian faith, you will be glad you read “Wholehearted.”
Beginning at the End (Finding God When Your World Falls Apart)
At some point, the trials of life will bring us to a place of believing that we’re at “The End.” It is in our pain and desperation that we call out to a God who seems so distant. Our questions are endless. But what we find is that for all the questions we have for God . . . He has questions for us too. “Beginning at The End” will take you on a profound journey through the Biblical book of Job. You will discover that its message goes much deeper than what appears on the surface . . . and so does your life. You will find that when you come to “The End,” it is really just the “Beginning,” when you encounter the Almighty God who offers forgiveness for the past, faith for the future and grace for the present moment.
