Who Is Jesus? His name is recognized the world over. But how many of us fully understand what He was like as a person? Honest, powerful, humble, full of mercy and light—Jesus was love personified, the full potential of what we were intended to be. Get to know Jesus and witness His love unfold in the Gospels in a new and insightful way. In this encouraging and convicting look at Jesus’ life on earth, Paul Miller investigates the answers to questions such as: How do you love someone when you get no love in return? How do you love without being trapped or used? How do you love when you have your own baggage? When do you take care of yourself? How do you love with both compassion and honesty? The Gospel accounts, combined with Miller’s own life stories, will uplift your spirit, give you a new perspective, and encourage you to love like Jesus. “For a glimpse of our great Savior, open this book! You’ll be glad you did. I was!” —Max Lucado, bestselling author “To see Jesus is to see what love looks like. Paul Miller gives us a fresh look in this wonderful book.” —Joni Eareckson Tada “If Jesus or Jesus’ saving grace is just an abstraction to you, Paul Miller will be a great help in making His love a living reality to your heart.” —Timothy Keller, pastor “Love Walked among Us is authentic ‘shoe leather’ Christianity. Anyone who wants to grow in his or her relationship with God and other people will profit from this book.” —Jerry Bridges, author and speaker

Love is what holds all things together, it's what we're looking for, it's what we all need and it's what we must learn how to give. But loving people is hard. Our neighbours, friends, kids, spouses and even our enemies require a relentless, self-giving demonstration of love that only God can produce within us. Taking his cues from the perseverance and faithfulness portrayed in the book of Ruth, best-selling author Paul Miller sheds light on a biblical portrait of love that is sure to give us hope and transform our souls. Here is the help we need to embrace relationship, endure rejection, cultivate community and reach out to even the most unlovable, as we discover the power to live a loving life.

Most people are familiar with the ‘love chapter’ of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13, yet Phil Ryken still has something new to say. He draws on the earthly life and ministry of Jesus to illustrate Paul’s several statements about what love is and isn’t. These aspects of love are then illuminated chronologically through the story of Christ’s advent, teaching, miracle working, sufferings, crucifixion, death, resurrection and ascension. Jesus never does anything without love. His love is everything the love chapter says that love should be. It is patient with sinners and kind to strangers. It does not envy or boast, but offers itself in humble service. It does not insist on its own way, but submits to the Father. It is able to forgive, trust, hope and persevere. This approach highlights the crucial truth that we are able to love only because Christ first loved us in this particularly profound, very real, and transformative manner.

How congregations can change into missional, fruitful learning communities "Jim and Trisha understand that profound change roots in individuals before it transfuses systems. Having observed the cycle in themselves as well as in others, they shepherd us into the remissioning work of the Holy Spirit."--Thomas F. Tumblin, professor of leadership, Asbury Theological Seminary In a groundbreaking seven-year experience, Jim Herrington and Trisha Taylor led a cluster of churches in a process of personal and congregational transformation that is producing hope and health. Built on a sound understanding of learning organization theory, adaptive leadership, family systems theory, and recent discoveries in the neurosciences, Herrington and Taylor developed and refined a highly fruitful model of church renewal. This model begins with personal renewal in which congregations learn how to become learning communities and ends with church-wide transformation. Learning Change is the pastor and congregational leaders' field guide to leading change. Each chapter provides training and information, an aspect of the learning change model, stories of real-life experiences in churches, and questions and suggestions for taking this information into a congregational context.

We live in interesting times. In our times we know many facts but lack faith. We know so much about medicine but enjoy little health. We ask many questions but receive few answers. Living in a broken world, in times where wrong is considered right and right is considered wrong, we question the reality of the existence of God. Yet wherever we look, we see battered, scarred, bruised, maimed, and broken people crying for Him. God is always present. He is never caught off guard or taken by surprise. The problems and heartaches we face are a result of sin. The solution to sin is Jesus Christ the Creator, Savior, Sustainer, and Answer to all our questionings. By accepting Him, beholding His love and mercy, and studying His Word, our lives are transformed into His likeness. We become new creations. Jesus left the splendor of heaven to come and die for us on a cruel cross at Calvary for the sins He did not commit. He would have come and died for us if we were the only sinner in the whole universe. In Times Like These is about Jesus and His love for lost humanity. In times like these, we need Him every nanosecond of the day and night. He is coming back soon to take His children home. A home where there is no pain, cancer, disease, tears of sorrow, or disappointment. Will you go with Him to Paradise? Now is the time to get ready.

John 17 contains the greatest intercessory prayer every prayed from this earth. The Apostle John reveals Jesus of Nazareth, in full disclosure of his self identity, going to his Father not only for his disciples then but also for his disciples now. Drawing from this remarkable chapter of the Bible, Michael A. Milton has sought to capture the timeless spiritual truths that Jesus prayed and to apply them to the lives of his congregation. In this book, all of us can now benefit from these insights. Retaining the live feel of an actual worship service at First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga, Tennessee, where these messages were first delivered, the reader can expect an appealing mixture of faithful Bible exposition, alert concern for the times in which we live, and heartfelt pastoral application to the lives of real people. Each chapter concludes with questions for devotional study or for small groups.

Bookstores and blogs display stories of people who go from bad days to good days, encouraging people to break out of their slump, pick themselves up, and make something awesome happen. Readers are supposed to get inspired and fix themselves. A Time to Question Everything, instead, offers space to bring personal demons, doubts, and disappointments to the table, daring people to believe that embracing the daily struggle of faith is indeed the good life. Unlike any other world religion, the Christian faith celebrates grace, not self-improvement. The heart of A Time to Question Everything is this sincere question: can grace hold the weight of this messy life?

Whether you are the caregiver or the patient, the what-if’s of the waiting room can feel terrifying, and the wait can feel agonizing. Cancer, tumor, stroke, traumatic injury, or major surgery—a health crisis of any kind involves waiting. This waiting arouses many emotions: fear, uncertainty, sorrow, agony, and anger among them. In this devotional for caregivers and patients, Elizabeth Reynolds Turnage reminds us of the certain hope and surpassing peace of the gospel: God has worked miraculous deeds and redemptive wonders in the past, and Jesus will “soon” come again to end our wait, and to bring full and final healing. These sixty meditations for peace and hope will encourage you as you wait. “This brilliant book is a tender gift of the presence of God for those caught in the deep woods of medical uncertainty. Elizabeth Turnage offers a wisdom that has been hard won, meets the test of the gospel, and is beautifully and brilliantly written. Dan B. Allender PhD Professor of Counseling Psychology and Founding President The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology “Elizabeth meets us in the waiting room as an empathetic friend reminding us what is true in His Word and urging us to listen to the refreshing lyrics of the gospel.” Karen Hodge Coordinator of Women’s Ministries Presbyterian Church in America (PCA)

More than 300,000 copies sold! “This book will be like having the breath of God at your back. Let it lift you to new hope.” —Dan B. Allender, PhD, author of Bold Love This new edition includes an expanded chapter on using the practical “prayer cards”—a hallmark of the teaching found in A Praying Life—and a chapter on the need and use of prayers of lament. Prayer is so hard that unless circumstances demand it—an illness, or saying grace at a meal—most of us simply do not pray. We prize accomplishments and productivity over time in prayer. Even Christians experience this prayerlessness—a kind of practical unbelief that leaves us marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy. Prayer is all about relationship. Based on the popular seminar by the same name, A Praying Life has discipled thousands of Christians to a vibrant prayer life full of joy and power. When Jesus describes the intimacy He seeks with us, He talks about joining us for dinner (Revelation 3:20). A Praying Life feels like having dinner with good friends. It is the way we experience and connect to God. In A Praying Life, author Paul Miller lays out a pattern for living in relationship with God and includes helpful habits and approaches to prayer that enable us to return to a childlike faith.
