Personal Journey

10:10 LIFE TO THE FULLEST

product image
$14.99

Why do so many of us sense that something is missing in life? Even people of faith fail to find fulfillment and purpose and spend their days spinning their wheels and looking for more. But Jesus said that he came that we might have life--abundant life or life to the full.

In 10:10, pastor Daniel Hill shows readers how they can have a holistic life in Christ that displays emotional health, spiritual vitality, vibrant evangelism, diverse community, and everyday justice. In short, they can have a faith that touches every aspect of life and makes all those disparate pieces come together in a whole. Hill shows readers how faith looks when it comes to their fears, intimacy, and mission and then helps them develop a transformational faith that is fully alive and impactful, right where God has placed them.

12 STEPS TO SPIRITUAL FREEDOM UNDERSTANDING THE CHRISTIAN ROOTS OF THE TWELVE STEPS

product image
$13.95

The twelve step addiction recovery process often comes in many variations and interpretations; while each variation may focus on different aspects of recovery, they all stem from the groundbreaking work of Bill W. and Dr. Bob Smith, the founders of the organization known as Alcoholics Anonymous. Twelve Steps to Spiritual Freedom: Understanding the Christian Roots of Twelve Step Programs aligns this 20th century construct with its roots in centuries old practices. This sensible approach brings together the deep spiritual tradition of Christianity to complement and support the hands-on, daily work of twelve-step programs.


Interspersed with personal experiences, Understanding the Christian Roots of Twelve Step Programs identifies and contextualizes the natural connections between Christian mysticism and the wisdom of twelve step programs and makes this information usable for readers. With her intelligent and pragmatic approach, author Joanna Thyer speaks to those who struggle within twelve step programs and to the counselors, therapists, social workers, and family and friends who support their recovery efforts. Knowing the origins can make the journey through addiction recovery grounded, personal, and rooted in faith.

40 DAY SPIRITUAL WORKOUT FOR CATHOLICS

product image
$8.99

Are you ready to get your faith in shape? "A 40-Day Spiritual Workout for Catholics" is designed to bring about deeper transformation and conversion in your life. Rice challenges his readers to spend forty days developing a habit that will last a lifetime.
Each of the forty days includes a Scripture quote, a quote from a saint or the "Catechism of the Catholic Church," a short reflection, thought-provoking questions, and a prayer. Your spiritual workout borrows concepts from physical training, including stretch, cardio, muscle-building, hydration, fat-burning, and cool down.
Rice talks about the importance of prayer for a Christian: Prayer isn't an option for Christians. It's what we do. Imagine meeting someone who says he is a runner but he doesn't like to run. Or a swimmer who doesn't ever go into the water. You'd tell them they aren't who they say they are. Runners run. Swimmers swim. Christians pray. Are you ready to work out? Are you ready to get to know Jesus? Think of Bob Rice as your personal trainer for the next forty days as you grow closer to Christ and strengthen your spiritual muscles.

5 STEPS TO FACING SUFFERING

$4.95

Suffering can strike anyone at any time -- an illness or accident, a separation or divorce, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job. No one would suggest that you should seek out suffering. And, no one would say that you should love suffering. In fact, suffering is not a being and, therefore, cannot be loved.

But, these five insights about suffering will help you consider the value of suffering in a new light. Guadagno shares stories of people who have lived through (or are still experiencing) suffering. She offers their examples of how to take a spiritual reality and put it into practice in a transformative way by: (1) facing the challenging question of why we suffer; (2) recognizing the presence of Jesus in people who suffer; (3) remaining in the present moment; (4) aligning yourself with Jesus who also suffered; and (5) entering into the suffering with an awareness of what's on the other side. The wisdom of those who share their experiences here is a gift to anyone who wants to look at suffering with new eyes -- in particular, with the eyes of a God who is Love and who chose to suffer precisely so that we could love one another more deeply.

About the '5 Steps' Series
The series features small (pocket-sized) books that apply concepts of a spirituality of communion to current issues and concerns of church and society. Treating one topic per volume, the texts focus on positive ways of engaging with gaps and divisions in family, church, and society. Following an introduction, the topic is developed via 5 short chapters (or 'steps'). Uniquely, the series features a real-life story ('experience') to illustrate how each step can be applied in daily life.

5 STEPS TO LIVING CHRISTIAN UNITY

product image
$4.95

For as long as Christian churches and communities have been divided, there are those who have looked for ways to heal the fractures. Callan Slipper offers five ways for Christians to approach one another on the path toward unity. (1) Recognize the need; (2) Start from being united; (3) Proceed one person at a time, with love; (4) Don't make yourself the measure of truth. Truth is a person. It is Jesus; (5) embrace the cross, and let Jesus' love transform division. His observations come from years of experience with ecumenists, and his optimism that unity is inevitable is evidence that faith and hope undergird the challenges that abide our daily choice to build Christian unity by the way we love one another.

ABOUT YOU: FULLY HUMAN FULLY ALIVE

$22.95

In About You, Dick Staub addresses irreligious, religious, spiritual seekers and all kinds of Christians and shows us that Jesus came to satisfy our universal longing for a fully human life, not to establish a narrow us versus them religion. In short, Jesus didn't come to make us Christian; Jesus came to make us fully human. In a fresh exploration of the ancient Biblical stories of creation, fall and redemption, Staub explains that salvation is not about going to heaven when we die; it is about a full and abundant life now. In practical, down-to-earth, language, About You deals with this concept on three levels: anthropologically (our common story and universal human needs), theologically (God's awareness and response to our needs), and practically (how we can attain and maintain a more complete and satisfying life).

Staub's previous book (The Culturally Savvy Christian) was selected by Kirkus Reviews for their 2007 Religion and Spirituality edition. This new book is designed to help those who are seeking a way to integrate both a fully alive spirituality and a fully alive humanity--a way that is embodied in the often-misunderstood life and teaching of Jesus Christ. This groundbreaking book illuminates the path towards becoming the best version of yourself.
