The climbing was difficult. The little sister was not used to the hike being so
demanding. She said to her brother, “This isn't a trail; it's too bumpy.” The little
brother replied, “The bumps are what you climb on.” As we travel life's path, there

Dr. Virgil Brady claims one of the major reasons for indifference in the church stems from being asked to believe the unbelievable. People leave the church. Members become inactive or indifferent. A growing number of the population simply does not experience the church as a viable channel for expressing their religious convictions. Certain religious ideas play a role in the threat of terrorism. The author addresses the issues of unnecessary divisions and tension in our churches, the nation, and around the world. Believe the Believable will help people grow a strong faith while dealing with religious diversity. Written for laity, Believe the Believable uses intelligible language and helpful illustrations to clarify the basic tenets of the Christian faith. Church groups and classes will find Dr. Brady's book a useful resource.

Approximately 14 million people are unemployed in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Almost half have been out of work for more than six months. Why are most churches doing very little to help the unemployed? What meaning can unemployed Christians draw from their situation? Is God punishing them? The Unemployed Christian offers practical, biblically based perspectives and encouragement on the various challenges the unemployed face. Loneliness, facing the unknown, chastening, and contentment are among the topics covered.

As this journey begins there is pure joy in trusting the Lord and there is the sadness in loosing loved ones. You might think you are drawing closer to the Lord but it is a whole new experience when He tells you "You are going to die this year." Daily surrendering all is so real and the joy is unspeakable. I identify with Isaac as he trusted his father as he lead him unto death. Genesis 22:12 and the Israelites as they are being lead out of Egypt by God as the pillar of a cloud. Exodus 13:21. This journey is full of life experiences that everyone can identify with, learn from and be blessed by. My prayer is if you do not have a personal relationship with the Lord that you will acquire a thirst, in deed, to know more about Him. "Seek and you shall find."

Delve daily into the imagery and honesty of the Psalms as C. William Nichols leads a 171-day sojourn through all 150 Psalms. Nichols helps us mine this rich vein of emotions and human experiences, calling us to take up the ancient practice of daily reading and meditating on Psalms. As we systematically consider each Psalm in its entirety, we observe how the Psalms work through complex feelings, often beginning with anger and doubt, then ending with statements of trust and victory.
