Jesus is never absent. You are never alone.

When world events feel chaotic and scary ...

When you feel crippled by fear and anxiety ...

When you feel hurt by the very people you thought you could count on ...

It's tempting to wonder "Jesus, are you here? Do you care?"

Though we may feel alone sometimes, Jesus assures us we are not. Even when we can't see Him, He is here. Even when we aren't hearing Him, He isn't silent. How can we know this for sure? Because Jesus is never absent in any of Scripture, and he's certainly not absent in our lives either.

In 30 Days with Jesus: Experiencing His Presence Throughout the Old and New Testaments, authors Lysa TerKeurst and Dr. Joel Muddamalle will help you:

  • Reframe your questions and doubts as opportunities to look for Jesus with greater intentionality throughout your day.
  • Make connections between the Old and New Testaments so you can understand the Bible as one complete story.
  • Overcome dread or confusion toward studying Scripture as you receive six weeks of guided readings, reflection questions, and relevant takeaways.
  • Jesus isn't hiding from us; He's waiting to be seen by us. Let this Bible study help you experience His presence every single day.

    Acts: Catching Up With the Spirit

    Acts: Catching Up With the Spirit

    $17.99
    More Info
    The Acts of the Apostles is a unique and crucial book that chronicles the story of God's grace flooding out to the world through the lives of the apostles in the decades immediately following Christ's ascension into heaven. In Acts: Catching up with the Spirit, author and biblical scholar Matthew Skinner provides a broad yet theologically attuned introduction to this important book and its story of the early church learning to bear witness about God's salvation through Jesus Christ.. Skinner explores six key themes that illustrate the ways in which reading Acts is capable of igniting our imagination about the character of the Christian message, the work of God's people (the church), and the challenges of living faithfully in a complex and changing world. Additional components for a six-week study include a DVD featuring Matthew Skinner and a comprehensive Leader Guide. Endorsements for Acts: Catching Up with the Spirit Skinner calls us to a daring life, risking not so much mere stormy seas, snakebites, magicians, but real daring, risking following the Holy Spirit into deep (even sacrificial) care of our neighbor at both the personal and social systemic levels, transformative hospitality, expansive inclusion, and, in Skinner's words, "generous unity." --Jaime Clark-Soles, Professor of New Testament, Perkins School of Theology Matt Skinner's invitation is to notice how God has acted before in Acts so that we might together wonder anew where God is leading us today. On this necessary but difficult journey, Skinner is a consummate scholar, a vivid writer, a gifted theologian, and a loving guide. -- Eric D. Barreto, Weyerhaeuser Associate Professor of New Testament, Princeton Theological Seminary
    All Creation Sings

    All Creation Sings

    $13.99
    More Info

    J. Ellsworth Kalas, adapted from chapter 1:

    There’s an old hymn you may be familiar with that contains these words: “This is my Father’s world, / And to my listening ears, / All nature sings, and round me rings / The music of the spheres. / This is my Father’s world, / He shines in all that’s fair; / In the rustling grass, I hear him pass, / He speaks to me everywhere” (Maltbie D. Babcock, “This Is My Father’s World”; 1901). It is true still today that “all nature sings,” but it is increasingly difficult to catch the melody. Almost anywhere we go, nature’s voice is now muted by the sound of traffic and assorted electronic devices. Those who go out to walk or jog are likely to wear a device that keeps them in touch with news or music or speech—so that, intentionally or not, they have shut out nature’s sound and dulled its influence.

    Which brings me to the point of this book. I rejoice greatly in the “green” movement that has made new millions conscious of the wonder of our creation and the blessed necessity of caring for it passionately. This is a magnificent step in the right direction, and it puts quality content into what might otherwise be little more than sentimental feelings. But I want us to go farther than that. I want us not simply to see—and indeed, to be grateful for—the wonders of nature. I want us to go beyond nature’s exquisite beauty until we learn some of the lessons it would teach us, lessons about both life and God. When nature sings (as it does every moment) its melody draws us to God, if only we listen with our whole being.

    This book will contain a discussion guide.

    Ask: Faith Questions in a Skeptical Age

    $14.99
    More Info
    We live in a skeptical age. People--especially young people--express doubts about Christian faith. In this thoughtful eight week study Bishop Scott Jones, author of The Wesleyan Way, partners with his son Rev. Arthur Jones, to address hard questions that all of us face when considering faith, religion, and the church. The questions include: Can only one religion be true? Why is there suffering and evil? How can I believe in science and creation? How can I believe in a God I can't prove? Can I trust the Old Testament? Are marriage, sex, and family life religious issues? Was Jesus' resurrection real? Why do Christians disagree about so many things? The message is strong and clear: Don't let your questions stop you from accepting God's invitation to faith. Engage your doubt, and you may find you are closer to God on the other side.

    Retirement can be the most purpose-filled, satisfying, fun phase of your life!

    Thousands of men and women are retiring each day, and many look forward to this phase of life with equal parts excitement and anxiety. Baby boomers have high expectations of retirement: they want to be redeployed to a life that is meaningful, significant, and full of joy.

    The book guides readers through a study and reflection process to discover their purpose, passion, and mission for retirement. It includes self-assessments and other planning tools to help readers develop a personal and spiritual mission statement. The book also facilitates discussions with family and friends about shared priorities, expectations, and end-of-life decisions, bringing a sense of peace for all involved. Finally, the book includes a chapter on financial planning, with a focus on the reader’s legacy, for an impact that will last through generations.

    Take a pilgrimage through some of the most challenging--and rewarding--parts of the Old Testament with bestselling author Philip Yancey.

    Because it is often daunting, many Christians approach Old Testament carefully. Or avoid it altogether. But each of the books of the Old Testament--"the Bible Jesus read"--contains an essential part of the story of grace.

    "The more we comprehend the Old Testament," Yancey writes, "the more we comprehend Jesus."

    In The Bible Jesus Read, Yancey challenges the perception that the New Testament is more important than the Old. Writing with keen insight into the human condition and God's provision for it, he sets off on a personal journey through the parts we most like to keep at arm's length--Job, Deuteronomy, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and the Prophets--and he asks us to bring our own questions, concerns, and our openness to the wonders of God.

    We may discover that this set of writings that comprise the Old Testament is at once as mystifying and strangely satisfying as life itself--that it's worth the effort it takes to read and wrestle with. Because reading the Scriptures that Jesus so revered gives us a profound new understanding of Christ, the Cornerstone of the new covenant.
