  • 1 Soul At A Time


    The lively story of one of the most influential evangelists of all time.For more than five decades Billy Graham (1918-2018) ranked as one of the most influential voices in the Christian world. Nearly 215 million people around the world heard him preach in person or through live electronic media, almost certainly more than any other person. For millions, Graham was less a preacher than a Protestant saint. Graham preached his gospel message to every corner of the world, but he made his mark in other ways, too. He led evangelicals out of the cultural closet and taught them how to function in the public square. His approach changed over time, from militant anti-communism to a more irenic, progressive posture. And throughout his career his preaching continued to resonate, propelled by his powerful promise of a second chance.This narrative biography of Billy Graham shows how he, more than any other individual, helped create and shape the powerful post-World War II evangelical movement in the United States and around the world.

  • 55 Days : Memoirs Of Life In God’s Hands


    It has been said there are no coincidences in life. The Bible tells us God’s timing is always perfect, even when we can’t recognize it. The death of the author’s wife revealed this clearly to him. This is the true story of how a young soldier, attracted to a young woman because of the car she drove, quickly fell in love with her beautiful soul and how it led to an incredible forty-seven-year journey together filled with love, hardships, travel and a never ending spiritual growth. Tom Glenn’s wife died just fifty-five days after her first ER visit. As he wrote their story, Tom came to realize that he had spontaneously proposed to her, without benefit of a ring or prior planning, by taking a giant leap on July 20, 1969, just fifty-five days after their first date. As they watched the lunar landing and listened to Neil Armstrong’s words, Tom found himself saying, Speaking of giant leaps would you marry me? She accepted and their journey together began. Biblical numerologists believe five means hand and fifty-five means God’s hands. This is the story of two lives lived in God’s hands which led to ongoing spiritual growth.

  • 7 Men : And The Secret Of Their Greatness


    In Seven Men, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted short portraits of widely known-but not well understood-Christian men, each of whom uniquely showcases a commitment to live by certain virtues in the truth of the gospel. Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Seven Men addresses what it means (or should mean) to be a man today, at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life. What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change agent, and wise man? What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity, especially at times when the culture and the world run counter to those values? Each of the seven biographies represents the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men.
    Each of the seven men profiled-George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson-call the reader to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.

  • 7 Women : And The Secret Of Their Greatness


    In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to the enormously successful Seven Men, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas gives us seven captivating portraits of some of history’s greatest women, each of whom changed the course of history by following God’s call upon their lives-as women. Each of the world-changing figures who stride across these pages-Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks-is an exemplary model of true womanhood. Teenaged Joan of Arc followed God’s call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyr’s death. Susanna Wesley had nineteen children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn-writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa Parks’ deep sense of justice and unshakeable dignity and faith helped launch the twentieth-century’s greatest social movement. Writing in his trademark conversational and engaging style, Eric Metaxas reveals how the other extraordinary women in this book achieved their greatness, inspiring readers to lives shaped by the truth of the gospel.

  • Between The Swastika And The Sickle


    On February 15, 1946, the Soviet NKVD raided the home of Ernst Lohmeyer just hours before his inauguration as the president of Greifswald University in Germany. Lohmeyer had survived active duty in both World War I and World War II. A New Testament scholar and theologian, he resisted the rise of Nazi fascism as a member of the Confessing Church. But the Soviet occupation of Germany was even more repressive than Nazi domination. With the exception of one letter from prison, Lohmeyer was never heard from again. In Between the Swastika and the Sickle James R. Edwards recounts the story of Lohmeyer’s life, his theological achievements, his courageous resistance to the forces of political repression-not least against Jews in Nazi Germany-and the events surrounding his death. But the book also includes Edwards’s intrepid search for the legacy of this brilliant and courageous scholar, whose story is made even more compelling by the tumultuous interplay of faith and politics in twenty-first-century America.

  • Beyond Valor : A World War 2 Story Of Extraordinary Heroism, Sacrificial Lo


    A miraculous true story of a soldier’s unspeakable heroism, a teenage woman’s unfailing love, and the faith that secured them all.

    On April 12, 1945, as a fleet of American B-29 bombers flew toward Japan, disaster struck: a phosphorous bomb detonated inside one of the planes. Staff Sergeant Henry E. Red Erwin absorbed the blast of burning phosphorous and threw overboard the still-flaming bomb, then collapsed from the third-degree burns over much of his body.

    Erwin’s plane diverted to a military hospital to try to save him, and President Truman ordered Erwin be awarded the Medal of Honor. General Curtis LeMay ordered a squad of airmen on a 1,000-mile mission to smash their way into a display case and steal a medal of honor before Erwin died.

    Meanwhile, a courageous teenage bride set out on her own mission, one of against-all-odds healing. Her mission’s success would mean an entirely new destiny for the twenty-three-year-old warrior–and years later make possible the birth of the book’s author, Jon Erwin. For Love and Honor is an extraordinary tale of bravery, heroism, faith, and devotion.

  • Billy Graham : An Ordinary Man And His Extraordinary God


    You have no idea how sick I get of the name Billy Graham, and how wonderful and thrilling the name Christ sounds to my ears, said Billy Graham. So, then, why another book about him?

  • Billy Graham : The Man I Knew


    He was a lanky, handsome, girl-crazed dairyman’s son from North Carolina who wanted to become a major league baseball player. Nothing more than that.

    Yet he ended up becoming history’s best-known evangelist and one of the most powerful religious figures of all time.

    Billy Graham was a country preacher who became an American institution for almost six decades-counseling presidents, world leaders, Hollywood stars, the queen of England, gangsters, soldiers, and the common man alike.

    He was a modern-day prophet who helped heal America in the most trying times-including desegregation, Watergate, Vietnam, the Oklahoma City bombing, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and Hurricane Katrina.

    This humble man of God preached to more than eighty million people in person and two billion on live broadcasts at more than four hundred Crusades and global conferences. He reached countless billions more through television, newspapers, radio, books, and film.

    Billy Graham: The Man I Knew is a detailed recounting of Graham’s extraordinary life through the eyes of fellow evangelist Greg Laurie. This book offers to readers how Graham grew up, his desires as a young man, and his reluctant transformation into an obedient and humble voice of the Lord and shepherd to needy people. Here is his vision for humanity and how he achieved so much in his ninety-nine years on this earth.

    Pastor, evangelist, and author Greg Laurie, who was a close friend to Graham for more than a quarter-century, presents a warm yet historically accurate portrait of the man, offering candid, keen, one-of-a-kind insights into America’s Preacher and the most important minister of the twentieth century.

    Billy Graham was known for his relentless Gospel preaching that stands apart in history. He’s celebrated as the greatest of all evangelists. Believing that Christ belongs to all people, Graham spoke to all religions, races, and nationalities, believing that lost people everywhere hunger for God’s Word and personal salvation.

Inspiring both laughter and tears, Born to Give is a refreshing and real story that will lead readers to place their own lives and resources in God’s miracle-working hands and engage with Him to bring hope in a broken, unjust world.

  • Brave Face : Two Cultures Two Families, And The Iraqi Girl Who Bound Them T


    The inspirational story of a woman who moved mountains to provide medical care for an Iraqi girl badly burned during a roadside attack, Barbara Marlowe’s determination to fight for her future daughter highlights the way love can reach across both cultures and continents.

    Barbara Marlowe was in her fifties when she saw the photo that changed her life. It was a photo of four-year-old Teeba Furat Fadhil, whose face, head, and hands had been severely burned during a roadside bombing in the Diyala Province of Iraq when she was just nineteen months old. It was Teeba’s eyes that captivated Barbara. They were wide, dark, and soulful. They seemed to cry out with a message across continents: Help me.

    The story of Barbara responding to that call is as inspiring as it is improbable. With a powerful faith and determination, Barbara overcame obstacle after obstacle to bring Teeba to the United States for medical treatments–and to ultimately offer a home.

    A Brave Face includes material written by Teeba and her Iraqi mother, Dunia, at key moments in their stories. The book also explores the connection forged between Barbara and Dunia over the past decade–a connection that has survived the strife of war and the horrors of Al-Qaeda and ISIS. In the end, this story highlights the power of love to reach across both cultures and continents.

Yet when faced with the choice to hand her struggles over to God and receive His love in return, everything began to change. On the other side of surrender, Kim began a journey of looking at one painful memory at a time with God and exchanging her perspective for His truth – a journey in which God rewrote her story of pain into a story of redemption and hope.

    If you are longing to experience God more than the shame or hurts of your past, the pressures of your present, or the fear of your future, Brave Surrender offers a soul-healing path forward. As Kim learned in her own life, the first step – and the bravest step – is letting go. Once we let go of anything that gets between us and God, we are freed to take hold of the life that truly matters. As Kim writes, When we encounter God’s love, it changes the way we see. And when we learn to see what He sees, we will never be the same again.
