Prepare the Way for the Lord Advent and the Message of John the Baptist Adam Hamilton For two thousand years, Christians have turned to the story and message of John the Baptist in the weeks leading up to Christmas. In Prepare the Way for the Lord: Advent and the Message of John the Baptist, best-selling author and pastor Adam Hamilton explores the Advent themes of John's life and ministry, and how John calls all followers of Jesus to prepare our hearts for his coming.

In each of the Gospels, the story of Jesus is intertwined with that of his cousin John, the one whom the prophets foretold would come to "prepare the way of the Lord." When we hear the message of John the Baptist, it makes us and our world ready to receive Christ.

Help Is Here Finding Fresh Strength and Purpose in the Power of the Holy Spirit Maxlucado

0 �SStO,f,

The Holy Spirit is a mystery to many of us today. We understand the nature and character of God the Father. We have no problem comprehending Jesus as the Son. But the Holy Spirit? We tend to hem, haw, and search for words when trying to describe him and the work he does in our lives. Perhaps some of the challenge is found in the terms. We understand God as a Father. Jesus as a Son.But God as Spirit? The word itself is mystical. In this five-session video Bible study, best-selling author Max Lucado pulls back the curtain on the third member of Trinity. He shows how Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to his disciples because they needed to be equipped for the work he had in store for them.Jesus knew they needed the Holy Spirit's power-to make good choices, keep promises, silence voices of fear, and get on with life. Jesus promised to provide this power to his followers. He still promises to provide this power today. Thomas Nelson.

GOOD BOUNDARIES AND OODBYES LOVING OTH ERS WITHOU T LOSING THE W HO You A BEST OF RE

Good Boundaries and Goodbyes Loving Others Without Losing the Best of Who You Are Lysa TerKeurst Relationships are wonderful ... until they're not.

Have you ever thought, I can't keep doing this-something has to change?Or, I've tried everything to fix this relationship but nothing is working-I fear I'm becoming someone I don't even like? Or even, I love this person, but this is starting to feel impossible?

You've listened to all the advice. But you're beginning to realize that if the other person doesn't want to change what's broken in the relationship, you can't change it on your own.

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Lysa TerKeurst helps readers stop the dysfunction of unhealthy relationships by showing them biblical ways to set boundaries-and, when necessary, say goodbye-without losing the best of who they are.

NEW I Guess I Haven't Learned That Yet Discovering New Ways of Living When the Old Ways "'"iott' Stop Working Shauna Niequist

Just after her 40th birthday, New York Times best-selling author Shauna Niequist found herself in a season of chaos, change, and loss unlike anything she'd ever experienced. She discovered that many of the beliefs and practices that had been useful up to that point no longer worked. After trying-and failing-to pull herself back up using the same old tools, she realized she required new ones: courage, curiosity, compassion, and self-compassion. She discovered the way through was more about questions than answers, more about forgiveness than force, more about tenderness than trying hard.

Follow Niequist on her journey to understand grief, to reshape her faith, to practice courage when all she wanted to do was hide.This is a book about learning how to live in a new city, learning how to get back up, and learning how to trust God's goodness in a deeper way.

Light. Bread. Shepherd. Life. The Gospel of John uses these and other symbols to paint a picture of who Jesus is. Through the "IAm" statements, Jesus describes himself with rich images, showing us that he is both fully human and fully divine and calling us as his followers. In Jesus Revealed: The I Am Statements in the Gospel ofJohn, author Matt Rawle explores the "I Am" statements in John as works of art that resonate throughout the Gospel and all of Scripture. He shows how these words point beyond themselves to the deep mystery of Jesus Christ. Join Matt on this journey and experience the profound truth at the heart of the "I Am" statements: that Jesus is light and life, and he calls us to himself and offers us the hope of resurrection.

The Lord's Prayer The Meaning and Power of the Prayer Jesus Taught Adam Hamilton Most Christians know the Lord's Prayer by heart. We pray it often, at different times and in different settings. We remember it as the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples. But do we really understand and appreciate the meaning and power of its words, what we ask of God each time we pray it? In The Lord's Prayer: The Meaning and Power of the Prayer Jesus Taught, pastor and best-selling author Adam Hamilton guides us to really know-and really pray-the Lord's Prayer. He explores each of its rich lines and their meaning in the Bible, illuminating what we ask of God and what we ask of ourselves through its words.And he teaches us how to use it as a pattern for our own prayer life.

Karoline M. Lewis

Belonging helps readers to understand and live out Christian discipleship in a way that is most deeply authentic for themselves. It's for the leader who is exhausted from trying to live by other people's templates, who wants to figure out what it looks like to live and lead as only they can.It's for the student or layperson desiring to follow Christ with integrity, to be themselves fully as a disciple. Scholarly but accessible for pastors, students, ministry leaders, and laypersons, the book is structured around the story of the Samaritan woman and guides the reader to discover deep connection with biblical characters who lead to self-discovery. Questions for reflection throughout the book for individuals or small groups evoke deep insights about self, theology, and discipleship. Abingdon Press.

Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph Adam Hamilton From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph's place in the Nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us.

Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph.Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God's salvation plan for humanity.As you read this book, you will understand how Joseph's story is much like our own. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don't understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Abingdon Press. 9781791025625.

What does it take to be a hero? A cape? Superhuman strength? God wants kids to be heroes too, but sometimes heroes can do even more when they're part of a heroic team than when they're on their own. Cokesbury's exciting new Hero Hotline VBS introduces kids of all ages to heroic teams from the Bible and the supporting heroes behind the "main" heroes. From inside the colorful Hero Hotline Headquarters underground cave, kids will join a bold and brave super team of God's heroes where everyone's gifts are valued and every hero has a role. With the help of Super Meer, they'll spring into action every day to work together, follow Jesus, show grace, help others, and listen to God!
