NATIONAL BESTSELLER • Don’t let your contradictions keep you from your calling. “This book will challenge you and encourage you into a life characterized by prayerful dependence and decisiveness—your life will never be the same.”—Mark Batterson, author of The Circle Maker Many of us are overwhelmed by the gap between our weaknesses and our dreams, between who we are and who God says we are meant to be. We feel unqualified to do God’s work or to live out the possibilities we imagine. But God has a way of using our weaknesses for good. In fact, God loves unqualified people. This is a book about understanding your identity in light of who God is. It’s a book about coming to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in your life and learning to let God use you. It’s about charging into the gap between your present circumstances and your future dreams and meeting God there. After all, God can’t bless who you pretend to be. But he longs to bless who you really are: a flawed and broken person. Fortunately for us God is in the business of using broken people to do big things.

His Final Words Are Your New Beginning It’s Good Friday. The Son of God is giving up his life. What does he want to say to us in His final hours? What does He tell the people standing at the foot of the cross, to pass down to the ages? He speaks only seven short statements. Words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion. Seven statements that mean everything. In Seven-Mile Miracle, Pastor Steven Furtick shows us how Jesus’s last words offer mile markers for our journey in relationship with God. It’s a lifelong journey and it’s not always easy. But Jesus is both our guide and our destination as we travel. Includes questions for reflection and a forty-day reading guide to Jesus’s death and resurrection. A Proven Path for Spiritual Growth From time to time we all feel stuck in our relationship with God and frustrated by life’s setbacks. Jesus faced what could have been the ultimate defeat on the cross. Yet he emerged triumphant through his relationship with his heavenly Father. And he showed us the way so that we could do the same. In Seven-Mile Miracle, Steven Furtick explores how Jesus’s seven last statements on the cross offer a proven spiritual growth path for us. You will experience the Easter message more personally than ever before as you engage the words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, reunion. After all, we are not simply believers—people who have put our faith in Jesus. We are not simply disciples—pupils who learn from him. We are called to be followers of Christ. This is your opportunity to follow Jesus through his death, and move forward in his resurrection power, starting now.

God uses the most unqualified people! Have you ever heard someone say, “God would never use me,” “My past has disqualified me,” or “I am not gifted enough.” Though these statements appear to be rooted in insecurity, they are sincere statements from the hearts of so many wounded and beleaguered Christians. This book is a journey into the realization that God has called all of us regardless of our history or gifts. The greatest battle we face as Christians is based on whether we believe God can actually use us to do His work. Unqualified will teach the reader the truth about God's character and His plan to use every submitted person. The book will also: Reveal the pitfalls and traps waiting to stop the mission God has assigned you to lead Teach that God has always relied on ordinary people to propel His message Help you release excuses, confront your past, and rise up and lead
God uses broken, frustrating, rich, poor, irritable, controversial, ineloquent, dirty people to do great things throughout the entire Bible. Maybe He can use me too. No matter where you are in your life's journey, you're invited.

The Bible is daunting, confusing, and it’s so massive that there's not enough time to actually sit down and read it. These are statements that I’ve heard over and over working in ministry. In this book, I will show you that reading the Bible doesn’t have to be daunting or confusing. I’ll even show you that the Bible is extremely relevant today and just as much relevant now as it was when it was written to its original audience thousands of years ago. Over the course of this book, I will break down the Bible for you and show you how the books fit together chronologically. I’ll also explain to you some of the hidden truths that many people just skip right over while reading the Bible (things like the women who paid for Jesus’ bills). Trust me, stay on this ride and you will come out enthralled with God’s Word. The best thing about this book is whether you’ve read ten pages or one hundred pages you’ll be fascinated by the depth, wonder, and whimsy of the incredible book we call the Bible. If you stick with this, I promise you that the Bible will look very different to you. Not that I will be adding to or taking away from this God-breathed book, but that we will walk through the Bible in such a way that you’ll be able to grasp the flow of all the books. That's my goal. I wrote this with you in mind.

Sometimes God uses tragedy to bring us together in ways we never imagined.Broken and Poured Out is the story about all that God did through a small church that was available and willing to be used by Him. After racial tensions threatened to divide several towns in South Louisiana a prayer for unity rose up. Despite the devastation brought by the Great Flood of 2016, God moved in a broken community and poured out his love and peace in the midst of chaos."We said yes to His call to love his hurting people through the devastation of a historic flood. I want to share my journey with you. I am so glad we said yes, our lives will never be the same." - Shannon EasleyAnd we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.Romans 8:28 NIV

Jesus is the most attractive person in human history. Professional fishermen dropped everything to follow him. Social outcasts were transformed into outspoken ambassadors; sinners, repulsed by their religious leaders, were drawn to Jesus by the scores. Today, everyday believers are called to attract people to Jesus. But how do we do that? God's plan to reach the world is not through commercialism or trendy marketing gimmicks--it's through you. However, some are caught in the performance trap of doing more and trying harder to please God, which produces the unintended consequences of spiritual brokenness and judgmental attitudes that render the believer ineffective at reflecting the heart of God. The Art of Marketing Jesus is an easy-to-understand spiritual growth process that has helped many believers internalize the life-giving promises of the new covenant and produce an abundance of love, joy, and peace in their lives--which is precisely the attitudes and characteristics required to attract people to Jesus. If you want to live free and attract more people to Jesus, perhaps it's time to become a new wineskin. It's time to say goodbye to old thoughts that keep you in bondage and place your light on the lampstand of spiritual freedom.
