the grace awakening

Have we forgotten the meaning of grace?

Preachers preach it. Teachers teach it. Theologians analyze it. Then we forget about it. Here, in a twentieth-anniversary edition, is The Grace Awakening, Charles Swindoll’s best-selling classic that has awakened hundreds of thousands of readers to the untapped wonders of grace. Wonders that Christians know with their minds but forget with their hearts. Wonders that can make a difference in the way we live, in the way we approach life. Wonders that can make the difference between ho-hum religion and an intimate relationship with a God who wishes us nothing short of joy.

god without religion

Through tales of robbery and extortion, laps around the Indy 500 track, tapped phone calls to a psychic, and a grandma’s late arrival at her own funeral, bestselling author Andrew Farley invites you on a story-filled adventure to discover the fullness of God’s grace. Farley shows how the simple truth about some controversial issues in the church today can unify us as we learn to rest in the unconditional love of God.

 

 

 


jesus plus nothing = everything

It’s so easy to forget what the Christian faith is all about. We struggle so much, work so hard, and fail so often that we frequently sense something in the equation of life must be missing.

Tullian Tchividjian argues that what we are missing is the gospel—a fuller, more powerful understanding of Jesus and what his finished work means for everyday life.

During a year of great turmoil, Pastor Tchividjian discovered the power of the gospel in his own life. Sharing his story of how Jesus became more real to him, Tchividjian delves deeply into the fundamentals of the faith, explaining the implications of Christ’s sufficiency—a revelation that sets us free and keeps us anchored through life’s storms.

Ultimately, Tchividjian reminds us that Jesus is the whole of the equation as he boldly proclaims that Jesus plus nothing really is everything.


beyond an angry god

How would your life change if you really believed and could even feel that God is absolutely crazy about you?

Steve McVey’s penetrating new look at the transforming power of God’s grace leads you to that change. Steve unpacks the biblical revelation of the Trinity as a loving relationship, and he highlights the goal of history: God intends to include us in that circle of love!

 

 


unravel love's mystery

Is there a better way to live than what religion has traditionally taught us?
Can we really enjoy heaven’s reality here on earth every day?

Not only is there a life available beyond anything you have ever imagined, suggests David Youngren, but you can enjoy that wonderful and exhilarating life here and now.

Plunged into a dark night of the soul—on the brink of financial ruin, plagued by cluster headaches that left him helpless for days, and drowning in self-doubt, David Youngren felt he could never measure up to the person he wanted to be. When a full-blown miracle proved that the answers were out there, Youngren began seeking the truth; the answers flowed in and love’s mystery unraveled.


grace walk

The over 250,000-selling Grace Walk has helped thousands of believers leave behind the “manic-depressive” Christian walk: either running around trying to perform to be acceptable to God–or thinking they’ve failed Him again and wondering if they’ll ever measure up.
Living the grace walk gets Christians off this religious roller coaster. Using his own journey from legalism into grace, Steve McVey illustrates the foundational, biblical truths of who believers are in Jesus Christ and how they can let Him live His life through them each day.
As they experience their identity in Jesus Christ, Christians will come to know “Amazing Grace” as not just a song but as their true way of life.

 

 


god's astounding opinion of you

Ralph’s book will give you the breathtaking answer to the question everyone is yearning to ask.  Knowing what God thinks of you is the single most defining knowledge you will ever get.  Indeed, until you know how well off you are with Him because of Jesus, until you know what a stunning, not-of-this-world new creation you are, you will surely believe something else about yourself, something terribly wrong.  And your life will reflect it.

Reading God’s Astounding Opinion of You may well provide one of the most thrilling and shaping experiences of your life.  It is a foundational book resting upon what God has done for us and to us through Jesus Christ.  Through its pages you will discover that God Himself is right now living in you, capable, ready and willing to provide for all the situations of life.  It’s fantastic!  And shouldn’t it be?


one way love

Real life is long on law and short on grace—the demands never stop, the failures pile up, and fear sets in. Life requires many things from us—a stable marriage, successful children, a certain quality of life. Anyone living inside the guilt, anxiety, and uncertainty of daily life knows that the weight of life is heavy. We are all in need of some relief.
Bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian is convinced our exhausted world needs a fresh encounter with God’s inexhaustible grace—His one-way love. Sadly, however, Christianity is perceived as being a vehicle for good behavior and clean living—and the judgments that result from them—rather than the only recourse for those who have failed over and over and over again. Tchividjian convincingly shows that Christianity is not about good people getting better. If anything, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good.
In this “manifesto,” Tchividjian calls the church back to the heart of the Christian faith—grace. It is time for us to abandon our play-it-safe religion, and to get drunk on grace. Two hundred-proof, unflinching grace. It’s shocking and scary, unnatural and undomesticated … but it is also the only thing that can set us free and light the church—and the world—on fire.

surprised by grace

We think we know God’s heart better than we actually do.

The prophet Jonah certainly did. We find his story compelling because all of us hesitate to follow God from time to time; Jonah’s story has been our own. However, Tullian Tchividjian shows us that the book of Jonah reveals how God relentlessly pursues rebels—a category that ultimately includes everyone—though he has every right and plenty of reasons to give up on us all.

This gripping presentation of the story of Jonah will open your eyes wider than ever to God’s relentless, purposeful, and inexhaustible grace.

 


365 of it is finished

God’s radical grace is unbelievable, unexplainable, and definitely undeserved. But it’s the foundation of our faith. In this new 365-day devotional, Tullian Tchividjian reminds you every day that the gospel is good news. It’s God’s message that He loves us even when we don’t deserve it. These short readings each contain a truth from God’s Word that will set you on a solid foundation for the day—a foundation of God’s grace, goodness, and unconditional love.
