Description : About the book: Do you ever look at people who call themselves Christians, and wonder about the lack of Christlikeness in them? Have you ever looked into your own life and questioned where you really stood with God? Do you ever entertain the inner suspicion that your relationship with God is pretense, a charade, the mere repeating of the words and feelings of others without internal conviction and change? Have churches today misunderstood the Gospel, what it really means to be a follower of Christ? In this deeply thought-provoking book, Getting Into Jesus' Life, John Vosnos addresses these questions and more in profound and practical ways, exploring what it means to be a genuine follower of Christ and offers identity with Christ and participation in Jesus' life as the key to living as a Christ-centered follower of Jesus-and the extraordinary difference this makes!About the author: John G. Vosnos has earned both the Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Trinity International University. After a short career in corporate business, he entered pastoral ministry where he has served for forty years. He and His wife, Gayle, have three grown children and reside in Barrington, Illinois where John serves as a pastor in the Village Church of Barrington.
Description : Over recent years some critics of Christianity have claimed that while Jesus was a gifted teacher and a man of unparalleled kindness, St. Paul was the true founder of Christianity, which he based on a delusional mistake--the idea that Jesus was God. Here, David Wenham looks at the historical evidence for such claims. Comparing the life and message of Jesus with the writings of St. Paul, he offers a thoughtful exploration of their relationship, concluding that far from imagining Christianity, Paul was the messenger of an inherited faith. --from publisher description.
Description : Your life is messy, hard, and uncertain right now—and if it isn’t, it has been or it will be. Messiness is the human condition. Part of the messiness is the unpredictability of life, not the unrelenting evil of life. And Jesus shows up inside all of that, because He experienced every aspect of what it’s like to be human: joy, physical pain, family arguments, frustration, existential trauma, and more. If Jesus is a real person, we should expect to meet Him in all of life. And only through the Good News and love of Jesus can we learn how to thrive in the midst of our mess. Daniel Fusco, a pastor and jazz musician, riffs on the major themes of the book of Ephesians to help each of us find God in the midst of our mess.

Description : There was a time, not so long ago, when everything in life seemed pretty simple. You had great friends, you got along with your parents (most of the time!), and you were pretty happy with the way your life was. But suddenly, it seems like everything is changing. Your friends expect way too much from you, and often let you down. You fight with your parents more than you’d like, and they never seem to be happy with you. You just don’t understand why your life seems so chaotic now. Melissa and Sissy, the authors of this book, think they can help you figure out some of the big questions inundating your mind:• Who am I? • What do I want? • What should I do? • Who do I want to be? While they’re no longer teenagers, Melissa and Sissy remember a bit about their entry into teenage life. But more than that, they talk with girls who are a lot like you every day—girls who are feeling pressure from everyone around them, who are feeling like they’re changing in ways they don’t understand—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—and they feel like their lives are out of their own control. If you’ve ever asked yourself any of those questions above, or if you just don’t know why you feel like everything is changing and you miss the “good old days” of Barbies and board games, this book can help you understand who you are and give you hope for who you are becoming.
