He Loves Me!

Learning to Live in the Father’s Affection

By Wayne Jacobsen

 

Do you find yourself picking through circumstances like children plucking daisy petals attempting to figure out whether or not God loves you? If you find yourself least certain of his love in those critical moments when you most need to trust him, there is hope for you. Where? At the one event in human history that forever secured your place in the Father s hear–the cross where Jesus allowed sin and shame to be consumed in his own body so that you could freely embrace a relationship with his Father. There you will discover that what he always wanted was not the fearful subservience of slaves, but the loving affection of sons and daughters. If your spiritual life feels more like performance than freedom, like an empty ritual rather than a joyful journey, let Wayne help you discover a Father who loves you more than anyone on this planet ever has or ever will and how you can rest in the confidence of his affection for you through whatever circumstances you face.

The Misunderstood God

The Lies Religion Tells About God

by Darin Hufford

THE MISUNDERSTOOD GOD tells the truth about who the Creator is. This book analyzes what religion says about God’s heart and personality and measures it up to what God calls Himself: Love. It simplifies a generation’s tangled perceptions of God by taking a journey through the sixteen aspects of love described in one of the most well-known Bible passages in the world: 1 Corinthians 13, also known as “the love chapter.” So many Christians have been bombarded with confusing teachings and doctrines that their understanding of God resembles a tightly tangled ball of Christmas tree lights. This book takes that twisted mess and replaces it with one soft, warm light of truth that anyone can embrace: God is love. (2009)

God without Religion

Can It Really Be This Simple?

by Andrew Farley

From the Back Cover

God without religion?

Through tales of robbery and extortion, laps around the Indy 500 track, tapped phone calls to a psychic, and a grandma’s late arrival at her own funeral, bestselling author Andrea Farley invites you on a story-filled adventure to discover the beauty of God’s grace.

“Andrew Farley is one of the best young writers yet most mature thinkers in the church today. Read God without Religion to hear the voice of a 21st century Bonhoeffer who shows how to ring in the good times when Jesus (not religion) is the cantus firmus, the enduring melody, of our lives.”–Leonard Sweet, bestselling author and professor at Drew University and George Fox University

“Never have I encountered a book that so clearly and biblically explains New Covenant Christianity. If you want to dump the religious burden and live in the true freedom and joy of Christ, God without Religion is for you.”–David Gregory, bestselling author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger and The Rest of the Gospel

God without Religion is brave, genius, and full of the best kind of hope. Andrew Farley offers us a clear, more joy-filled, and peaceful route to God, without religion! And we need that now more than ever.”–Matthew Paul Turner, bestselling author of Churched and Hear No Evil

“This is a book that every Christian simply must read before going one more step in their walk with Christ. Don’t waste another day living under religious bondage. Stop everything you’re doing and read this book now.”–Darin Hufford, bestselling author of The Misunderstood God

Price US $16.88

The Naked Gospel

Jesus Plus Nothing.

100% Natural. No Additives.

by Andrew Farley

From the Back Cover

I found myself lying on the floor of my apartment, sobbing for hours on end: “God, I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do, and I still don’t feel closer to you. In fact, I feel worse than ever! How could this have gone wrong? I can’t see any way out. Help me.”

As a university student, Andrew Farley found himself physically and emotionally addicted to street evangelism and Bible study. Yet despite his fervid behavior, he knew something was missing. That something was an understanding of the gospel that is stripped of the compromises and clichés of the modern church.

The Naked Gospel finds friends among those who are burned out on experience-chasing, ceremonialism, or legalism. It attacks churchy jargon and powerless ideas and puts forth a message that is simple but life-changing. With a fresh take on Scripture and unapologetic style, The Naked Gospel will challenge you and stir you to re-examine everything you thought you already knew.
