Why pray to the God who knows everything?

How do you pray in faith when you know God may say, “No”?

What does it mean to pray according to God’s will?

How can you pray so that God will grant your request?

Learn the answers to these questions and more in this exciting, fresh look at the spiritual discipline in which we all claim we need to grow. You can experience this book as a daily devotional, a group study or just an enjoyable read. 

Whatever you need to help you grow in prayer, this book provides the experience.

Walks With God

Every day thousands of Christians hit the gym, go for a run, take a swim or practice Pilates. We want to take care of our bodies so they will be around for a while. Regrettably, too many are missing out on the greatest exercise–walking with God. It’s good for the heart, good for the soul and, yes, even good for the body. It is the only exercise with everlasting benefits.

Whether you are already walking with God, just getting started on your exercise regimen or struggling to maintain your workout discipline, Walks with God will help you get on the right track and stay there. No, you won’t lose 20 lbs. in one month. You will, however learn to lay aside life’s burdens so you can endure and enjoy the journey before you.

The Gospel of the Kingdom:
Studies in the Sermon on the Mount

Who has not spent time within the Sermon on the Mount? Who has not rejoiced in the promise to “ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you?”

Who has not quaked at the warning that “many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord’…then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me you who practice lawlessness'”?

Who has not struggled with the instruction to “not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek turn the other to him also”?

Who has not been refreshed, challenged and rebuked by Jesus in this sermon?

Yet we keep coming back to it. We are drawn to it, knowing it contains the concentrated essence of what Jesus wants us to be. For whatever reason we come to the sermon, if we study it deeply, we cannot leave unchanged. No wonder Matthew called it “the gospel of the kingdom.

Find out just how shocking and radical Jesus’ sermon was. Then work to apply it radically to your life.
