In this in-depth biblical biography, Beth Moore takes you on an intimate exciting journey through virtually every astonishing episode of David's remarkable life. From shepherd, to refugee, to king of Israel, David exhibited the purest virtues and the most heinous sinfulness. But through it all, his relationship with God continued to grow. Based on Scripture and Moore's probing insights into the romantic, mysterious, majestic life of David, A Heart Like His will show you how to serve God better by understanding your own unique place in His heart.
Learn to let go of destructive anger---and your relationships with God and others will be transformed!

Did you know that in Heaven's eyes, you're already involved in the most powerful plot of all? Jesus has come to set you free. Not simply to parole you, but to liberate you to love as He loves. You have a chance to join the permanent cast in God's unfolding drama...or not. If you say yes, the fresh winds of purpose, healing, and authenticity await you as does a fresh start. Don't expect to stay behind the scenes, though. God's epic will feature you in a panoramic redemption where everything in your life that's been broken or simply isn't right gets renewed.
D. James Kennedy looks at the personal and public importance of marriage in this eye-opening examination into why marriage matters for all of us. Happy homes it turns out, make for a healthy culture. Dr. Kennedy also speaks candidly about what it takes to make your own marriage work, offering insight and biblical teaching to help you be everything you (and your spouse) want to be as a husband or wife.
Many single adults don't realize how their actions and their communication style could be having a negative affect on the opposite sex. Popular thinking about dating identifies certain "rules for success" for today's singles. But the results are in, and popular thinking isn't working. Rather than attract the opposite sex, popularly promoted roles and actions often leave singles looking desperate while sending potential dates the opposite direction. In Marriable, Hayley and Michael DiMarco ask the question, "You aren't desperate so why are you acting like it?" With creative chapter titles like "They Just Might Be Out of Your League" and "How Being 'Just Friends' is a Waste of Time," the authors explore everything from internet dating to commitment-phobia. Writing with wit and humor, Hayley and Michael discuss the differences between men and women, what those differences mean in a dating relationship, and ultimately how to find and be a "marriable" person. With short, accessible chapters that tell it like it is, Marriable will be appreciated by men and women alike.
There's nothing wrong with praying for God's general blessings for people and situations in our lives. But God desires that his children experience much more when they pray. In Beyond All You Could Ask or Think, Ray Pritchard urges readers to explore the fullness of God's purpose for your prayer life by using the apostle Paul's prayers as models for your own.
Dr. Kennedy presents startling information about the impact of feminism, divorce, and fatherlessness in As the Family Goes, a special chapter from his book, What If America Were a Christian Nation Again?, written with Jerry Newcombe. The family is the heart of our culture and, as Dr. Kennedy writes, "If America is going to survive and thrive, it will require a renaissance of the American family."

He found himself a traveler in the strangest of lands. Where invisible secrets come starkly into sight. Where the fairest of companions leads the way into unsuspected danger and darkness. Where hidden battles burst into the open. Where so much is grasped…and so much more seems unattainable.

Driven by a yearning he doesn’t understand, compelled toward a destination he can’t quite see, the traveler navigates the inhospitable landscape with determination and a flicker of something like hope—despite the obstacles that seem to unerringly block his path.
