Most of us, at some point, experience the sense of God’s absence. Michael Card says that rather than letting the distance widen, this is exactly the time for a deeper pursuit of God. The method he proposes is recovery of the profound, biblical practice of lament.
Jesus was condemned . . . so we could be set free. He was wounded . . . so we can be healed. He died . . . so we might have life. The cross has lost much of its appeal as a symbol of Christianity. Yet what Christ did at the cross remains central to our faith. In this richly designed book, Michael Card reflects on what it means for Christians that we meet our savior at a cross. Card combs the Old Testament prophecies and Gospel accounts of Jesus self-sacrifice, seeking a renewed vision of the cross-the inconceivable meeting place of violence and grace
God desires for us to pour out our hearts to Him, whether in joy or pain. But many of us don’t feel right expressing our anger, frustration, and sadness in prayer. From Job to David to Christ, men and women of the Bible understood the importance of pouring one’s heart out to the Father. Examine their stories and expand your definition of worship.

For many parents, raising children seems pretty manageable until the teenage years. Then fear, confusion, frustration, and lack of understanding begin toinvade the hearts and minds of these once-confident parents. The “normal” changes of adolescence seem to be nothing but abnormal to parents who begin to feel like helpless bystanders. But parents don’t need to feel alone or paralyzed by these feelings. For nearly twenty years, Walt Mueller has studied adolescents and the culture they’re surrounded by. His expertise was put to the test when his own children became teenagers. Now he’s bringing wisdom from research and his own experience to help parents through the tumultuousyears of adolescence. With empathy and practical tools, parents will address several important issues, including the questions:• How can I begin to facilitate a smoother adolescentperiod for my teen?• How can I begin to break through the walls ofconfusion, fear, frustration, and misunderstanding?• How can I be a positive and proactive bridgebuilderinto the life and world of my teenager?
In his gospel, John gives eyewitness details that help us "be there" with Jesus. Now, Michael Card, with his unique blend of artistic craft and scholarly research--including his own translation of the gospel from the original Greek text--introduces us to the apostle and his gospel in a fresh new way. Scholarly insights and imagination make John's stories come to life and help us know in our hearts that his friend Jesus is truly the Son of God. "But these things have been written so you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name" (John 20:31).
A church member has just lost a parent. Another member is scheduled for surgery. Yet another member is having marital problems. Just another day in the life of a congregation. Church leaders (both clergy and lay) give immeasurable comfort and nourishment to those in need. But it sometimes leaves them drained, stressed, and wounded. Feed My Shepherds addresses the struggles and burnout experienced by those in caregiving ministries and offers practical tips for practicing healthy spirituality. "While all Christians need nurture, the active leader who encounters spiritual and emotional stress daily has special, urgent needs," writes Wuellner. "If the shepherd is not fed along with the sheep, that inner hunger and fatigue, those unhealed hurts can cause the shepherd to do great, unconscious harm to those within his or her care." By looking at the intense, healing relationship between the risen Jesus and his disciples, Wuellner offers a paradigm of healing for today's disciples as well. She draws on scriptures from the Gospels' post-Resurrection narratives and adds spiritual reflections, personal questions, and guided meditations that can meet a variety of needs.

But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love. “ Anyone who enjoys novels that are scary, erotic, touching, tragic and thrilling should rush right out to the nearest bookstore and pick up The Shadow of the Wind.
