#1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer takes us on a journey through the wisdom of Proverbs that leaves us transformed and prepared to face daily choices and challenges. The book of Proverbs is a treasure trove of spiritual and practical wisdom that equips us to live our best lives. Knowledge is important, but if it isn't converted into action, it fails to create transformational change in our lives. It is important to gain a thoughtful and practical understanding of the seven foundational principles in the book of Proverbs: Wisdom, Understanding, Prudence, Knowledge, Discretion, Discernment, and Fear of the Lord. If we desire to possess these qualities, we must make a commitment to a deeper understanding and implementation of these values in our daily lives. Featuring inspiring questions to promote thoughtful reflection, In Search of Wisdom will enlighten you with God's understanding and teach you the foundational principles and secure God's help in practicing them.

We're facing an information overload. With the quick tap of a finger we can access an endless stream of addictive information—sports scores, breaking news, political opinions, streaming TV, the latest Instagram posts, and much more. Accessing information has never been easier—but acquiring wisdom is increasingly difficult. In an effort to help us consume a more balanced, healthy diet of information, Brett McCracken has created the “Wisdom Pyramid.” Inspired by the food pyramid model, the Wisdom Pyramid challenges us to increase our intake of enduring, trustworthy sources (like the Bible) while moderating our consumption of less reliable sources (like the Internet and social media). At a time when so much of our daily media diet is toxic and making us spiritually sick, The Wisdom Pyramid suggests that we become healthy and wise when we reorient our lives around God—the foundation of truth and the eternal source of wisdom.

Everyone is controlled by something. Who is controlling your life, you, the devil, or the Holy Spirit? The Bible says we are controlled by the Holy Spirit. But how can someone know who is in control? Our flesh will always manipulate, make demands, and pressure us to fulfill its desires. The Holy Spirit is always gentle, meek, and humble. He will lead and guide us in a still small voice. By contrast, the devil's voice is sharp, hard, and pressing. The Holy Spirit will always lead us into all truth and bring clarity and understanding to our minds. Satan has only one purpose: to lie, deceive and confuse us. In THE SECRETS OF SPIRITUAL POWER, Joyce Meyer shows you how to obey the Holy Spirit. And by doing this you will experience spiritual power as well as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.

"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999 Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays.

The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible. The book of Leviticus can be challenging for contemporary readers, but it has an important message for the modern church. Indeed, the laws outlined in this book are more than just archaic rules. Rather, they reveal the holiness of God and the forgiveness he offers to all who sincerely repent. In this accessible study, pastor Michael LeFebvre helps readers understand how the rituals in the Old Testament law point to Christ’s work of atonement at the cross—highlighting the riches of the gospel for Christians today.

The women of the Bible lived timeless stories—by examining them, we can understand what it means to be a woman of faith. People unfamiliar with Scripture often assume that women play a small, secondary role in the Bible. But in fact, they were central figures in numerous Biblical tales. It was Queen Esther’s bravery at a vital point in history which saved her entire people. The Bible contains warriors like Jael, judges like Deborah, and prophets like Miriam. The first person to witness Jesus’ resurrection was Mary Magdalene, who promptly became the first Christian evangelist, eager to share the news which would change the world forever. In The Women of the Bible Speak, Fox News Channel's Shannon Bream opens up the lives of sixteen of these Biblical women, arranging them into pairs and contrasting their journeys. In pairing their stories, Shannon helps us reflect not only on the meaning of each individual’s life, but on how they relate to each other and to us. From the shepherdesses of ancient Israel who helped raise the future leaders of the people of God, to the courageous early Christians, the narrative of the Bible offers us many vivid and fascinating female characters. In their lives we can see common struggles to resist bitterness, despair, and pride, and to instead find their true selves in faith, hope, and love. In studying these heroes of the faith, we can find wisdom and warnings for how to better navigate our own faith journeys. The Women of the Bible Speak outlines the lessons we can take from the valor of Esther, the hope of Hannah, the audacity of Rahab, and the faith of Mary. In broadening each woman’s individual story, Shannon offers us a deeper understanding of each, and wisdom and insights that can transform our own lives today.

It was during an isolated tour of military duty that the author Sheldon Malone was led to compile these devotionals written over the years into a one-year devotional book designed to encourage readers to look at God’s Word from a whole new perspective by changing the way they thought. It was not until he changed his thinking that he truly began to see the transforming power of God manifested in his life in tangible ways. This is precisely why we have to allow God to expand our territory and horizon by permitting Him to change the way we think through His Word. As you read each devotional, this author’s prayer is that you will find strength and encouragement to allow God to propel you into higher heights and deeper depths in the things of the Kingdom. The Word of God may just give you a different perspective as it encourages you to change your thinking in order to achieve a new mindset.

Approaching public communication from a liberal arts point of view, Speaking the Truth in Love provides a distinctly Christian perspective of rhetoric. Written and oral rhetoric are interwoven throughout the text. Two foundational ideas control the majority of the text. The first is from Plato's 'Phaedrus' as stated by Paul in Ephesians 4:15, Òspeaking the truth in love. The second is from the Apostle Peter in 1 Peter 4:11, Òif anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. The spiritual responsibility of communicating truth in accordance with the nature of God, especially the virtue of love, is an awesome privilege and opportunity. Sound content spoken or written eloquently with charisma will enable words to have a maximum impact.The text is designed to be a culminating learning experience for undergraduate communication programs or as an introductory text for graduate programs involving public communication. Beginning with a philosophy of language, meaning, and interaction, argument is built against secular deconstructive thought where everyone has a different truth based on language. Alongside philosophy we explore ethics and theology from an evangelical perspective. Following this a brief history outlines rhetorical thought from pre-testament classics to today. Based upon these ideas we take a closer look at communication theory as it relates to public communication. Finally, the text addresses the practice of both written and oral communication.

Somewhere out there is the “good life,” and we’re all scrambling to get it. Glenn Pemberton maintains in this book that we find the so-called good life not in good things but in living well—and the biblical book of Proverbs teaches us how to live that life. Though based on solid biblical scholarship, A Life That Is Good is not a textbook, commentary, or comprehensive study. It is instead a readable, practical guide to the wisdom found in the ancient book of Proverbs—wisdom on everyday living, speech, relationships, justice, money, and much more. Pastors and church groups in particular will love and benefit from this relevant guide regarding the message of Proverbs for today’s world.

Through an examination of the Bible's most powerful verses, the newest installment in the 101 Most Powerful series reminds us that we are not alone in this world. In the Old Testament, God spoke through patriarchs, poets, and prophets. In the new Testament, he reaches out through Christ and Christ's disciples. Highlighting some of the key verses of the Bible, Steve and Lois Rabey demonstrate how God constantly communicates his will and his love to his children.

Wisdom fuel is a positive stimulant for the mind, body, and soul. If you think it’s easier said than done, I’ve already taken that myth into consideration. I’ve written and designed the book to accommodate your learning needs. Whenever someone advises me on a matter and the dictum “it’s easier said than done” springs to mind, I remind myself that I must still make the effort rather than allow inertia to set in. I’m encouraging you to do the same too. For a healthy mind, body, and soul, you need the right kind of spiritual fuel; this book goes a long way in providing it. You can use the book for your benefit and, by doing so, increase the likelihood that, through you, it may benefit others too. Remember the saying, “Little drops of water … make a mighty ocean and a bounteous land.” The book may be read in any number of ways—sequentially, by title, or through use of the categorical index. However you choose to engage with the material, it can offer you great benefits.

I was 12 years old when an escaped convict chased me for more than a mile. He came to our porch where he looked into my eyes questioning whether I would use my gun if he continued his quest. His decision as well as other events in my life opened my spiritual vision into an unseen world wed best not ignore. I pray the thoughts shared within these pages stir your soul. I pray the pages increase your awareness of the spiritual world we live within. I hope the thoughts shared help you find kindness, goodness, gentleness, peace, joy, and love.
