Unity. Jesus prayed that his followers would experience it. The apostles worked hard to achieve and maintain it. Christians today rarely enjoy it. God's desire is for our churches, marriages, families, and interpersonal relationships to be characterized by unity and agreement. But all too often, strife and discord prevail instead-why? Because we fail to realize that our differences-be they doctrinal debates, generational clashes, or other personal preferences-don't have to create division. Unity and unison are two entirely different things. The key to practicing biblical unity is to "build a bridge and get over it!" Drawing insight from key passages of Scripture as well as years of leading a dynamic and diverse congregation, this author explains in very practical ways how we can improve our relationships and deal constructively with our differences and disagreements as followers of Christ. Paul Earl Sheppard has been senior pastor of Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in Mountain View, California since 1989. Under Paul's visionary leadership, this church has become one of the largest and most racially diverse congregations in northern California. He serves as speaker for Enduring Truth, a popular daily radio program heard on stations and networks around the country. A native of Philadelphia, Paul has studied at the University of Pennsylvania, the Center for Urban Theological Studies, and the Southern California School of Ministry. He holds a Master's degree in Ministry and a Doctorate of Divinity. Paul sits on the board of directors of NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) and is a highly sought after speaker and conference leader. He was married to his wife, Meredith, in May 1982. They have two adult children, Alicia and Aaron.

Author: Iyanla Vanzant
"When individuals are suffering through unpleasant or undesirable situations and circumstances, they are often unaware of how they participate in creating or re-creating their experience. In severe cases, there is addiction or suffering. Frequently, my first attempt at offering suffering individuals another way of seeing their experience is met with fierce resistance, which I call "the fight to be right." Often people unwittingly fight to maintain ownership of the very limitations that cause their suffering. Unfortunately, while fighting for their limitations, most fail to realize this is not a fight they want to win. Rather than engage them in a mental or emotional sparring match, I ask one simple question: "What is your prayer?" When an individual seriously contemplates this question, stories about how pain and suffering should or can be tolerated begin to recede. The ego has very few arguments that can survive the power of an earnest and heartfelt prayer."--

We all have dreams and expectations of life. But life is unpredictable. No matter what we do or how we live, we are certain to encounter trials and setbacks, frustrations and real suffering. The question is, how are we to respond when we are blindsided by troubles? What can we do when life knocks the wind out of us? If you’re like most people, when hardship hits you can think of countless situations you’d rather be in. Yet the secret of making it through is in learning how to make right choices and thrive in the middle of difficulty. In Get Over It and On with It!, outspoken Bible teacher Michelle McKinney Hammond finds contemporary application in the ancient stories of several men and women who took the path from suffering to overcoming. Their journeys teach us how to press through hardship and get to the other side of our disappointment.

Publisher: Thomas Nelson
USA Today bestselling author Susannah B. Lewis (creator of Whoa! Susannah) is back with another hilarious take on what so many people are thinking but are afraid to say aloud. Millions of online fans have flocked to Susannah B. Lewis's hysterical, take-no-prisoners rants about her pet peeves in everyday life. Now, in How May I Offend You Today?, Lewis turns her trademark humor to ordinary events that work her nerves--from people who wear t-shirts with indecent images to public displays of affection in the plumbing aisle of Lowe's--while keeping a wry eye on herself and her own temptation to vent grievances "like a teenage girl in overalls and Birkenstocks." Weaving together anecdotes from her distinctly Southern life with frequent references to the Bible, what she calls "our manual for living," Lewis says what many of us have thought, and in the process encourages us to stand firm in our views. The witty-yet-down-to-earth banter and uplifting, inspirational message of How May I Offend You Today? gives readers everywhere the boost necessary to make it through even their most trying days.

Good and bad. Right and wrong. Decent and indecent. The line that separates them is thinner than you think. PC Steve Fuller has served as an officer for over twenty years. There’s nothing he hasn’t seen, nothing he can’t deal with. He might be closing in on forty but he’s still in good shape, his head on straight, his instincts sharp. Or so he thinks. Until Anna Johnson. Hours before washing her dried blood from his body, Steve holds the young woman’s hand in the wreckage of the car, comforting her as best as one stranger to another can in the most critical moment of her life. He’s the last person she’ll see. She’s another tragic victim of the road. Another fatality. At the end of another shift. Except she won’t go away. Pale blue eyes and porcelain skin framed by ebony hair haunt his sleep at night and his conscience during the day. Compelled to find out more about what, or who, caused Anna to lose control of the car that night, Steve goes looking for answers. But they’re not easy to find. And the more he tries to do right, the more everyone tells him he’s wrong, until – piece by piece – he can’t be entirely sure of the difference any more. As the autopilot driving his life falters – colleagues questioning his decisions, physical sensations he can’t control, thoughts that leave him uneasy – the truth about Anna Johnson begins to unravel. And it’s nothing like he expects. Critical Incident is a gripping and heart-breaking page-turner, and the first book in the Code Zero police drama series This book was previously published under the title No Further Action "A wonderfully touching and powerful story." "A must read for anyone who likes deep, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreakingly sad, explorations of the human condition." "Had me engaged from the start"
