Awesome: Praising God Straight from Scripture

This remarkable devotional contains every praise to God, every thanksgiving to God, and everything easily turned into praise to God, in the Bible. They are not just based on God's Word, they are God's Word, simply turned into first-person praises to Him. The 31 sections of seven one-page praises are perfectly arranged to do what King David did, praising God seven times a day (for 31 days), or to praise God once a day (for 217 days), or anything in between. For the first time, it's amazingly easy to do what God tells us dozens of times to do, and what Jesus himself did: "continually offer up a sacrifice of praise ... giving thanks to His name." 

David Gregory personally found that praising God’s own Word back to Him paves the way for God to work deeply in our own lives, focusing on God more than our circumstances, developing triumphant faith, knowing God's love, and peace, and joy more deeply, growing in selflessly loving others, and experiencing Christ as our life more richly.

Dinner with a Perfect Stranger

“You are Invited to a Dinner with Jesus of Nazareth.” The mysterious envelope arrives on Nick Cominsky’s desk amid a stack of credit card applications and business-related junk mail. Although his seventy-hour workweek has already eaten into his limited family time, Nick can’t pass up the opportunity to see what kind of plot his colleagues have hatched…

The normally confident, cynical Nick soon finds himself thrown off-balance, drawn into an intriguing conversation with a baffling man who comfortably discusses everything from world religions to the existence of heaven and hell.

And this man who calls himself Jesus also seems to know a disturbing amount about Nick’s personal life.

“You’re bored, Nick. You were made for more than this. You’re worried about God stealing your fun, but you’ve got it backwards.… There’s no adventure like being joined to the Creator of the universe.” He leaned back off the table. “And your first mission would be to let him guide you out of the mess you’re in at work.”

The Rest of the Gospel: When the Partial Gospel Has Worn You Out

Having God’s forgiveness is wonderful. Spending eternity with God is great. But for now, where is the abundant life Jesus promised? Why is the Christian life such a struggle? Because getting forgiven is only half of the gospel! The Rest of the Gospel is not us striving on our own to be “good” Christians, but Christ in us, living his life through us as we rest in him.

If Jesus Loves Me Why Isn't This Working?

Dylan Cooke is living a typical Christian life—stressed, discouraged, wondering where God is. Until one day he starts receiving a series of letters that show him a life unlike any he has experienced. Or even heard of. Could these letters really be from Jesus?

This life—the life that I have given you—is simple. So simple, in fact, that you have to be like a little child to receive it. That’s what I told my disciples, remember? But sometimes the simplest things need to be explained, because they seem complicated at first.

That’s what this life seems like to you: complicated. But it’s not. It’s the simplest thing … As you look at what I said before in the Bible, it will be clear that what I’m saying here is not new. Nothing needs to be said that hasn’t been said previously. You simply need to hear it freshly … My plan for you from eternity past is greater than you know, and things have already happened to you—wonderful things—that you haven’t fully understood. So let’s back up. Let’s start at the beginning, so we can lay a proper foundation. And you will see how simple this life really is. 

As Dylan reads through each of the 22 short letters, his whole view of what he was designed for, and how he is meant to live this life, is changed forever.

A Day with a Perfect Stranger

What if a stranger knew you better than you know yourself?

Exasperated by her husband’s sudden new obsession with Jesus, Mattie Cominsky views an out-of-town business trip as a welcome opportunity to reflect on their marriage—and to decide if it’s time to put an end to this painfully unrewarding relationship.

Aboard the plane, Mattie is relieved to find herself seated next to a passenger who shares her scorn for religion. After she confides her husband’s unexpected turn, their conversation soon leads to a fascinating exploration of spirituality, God, and the quest for meaningful connection.

Mattie’s skepticism softens under the perceptive insights of this stranger, and she finds herself confronting the unspoken longings of her soul. As his comments touch on personal issues he couldn’t possibly know about, she begins to wonder if she’s misjudged not only Nick but also the God he now claims to believe in.

Burned out and hopeless, Nick wails his complaints to God during a late-night interstate trip. Then suddenly he runs out of gas—and finds Jesus along the roadside carrying a gas can.

Open: Get Ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime

It wasn’t the end of the world. It was just the end of Emma Jameson’s world. Fresh off the heels of a devastating breakup and floundering in her career, Emma is struggling to come to grips with why God allows so much pain in our lives, why He seems so absent when she needs Him most, and why the Gospel accounts―our supposed guide for how to lead a contented Christian life―feel so completely irrelevant.

Then one day, a mysterious envelope arrives in Emma’s mailbox with the word Open written on the outside. Inside the envelope is a card bearing the following message: “For a real adventure with Jesus, go through the nearest open door.”

Skeptical, but having absolutely nothing to lose, Emma steps through the pantry door, only to find herself instantly transported back to the first century, where she is taken on a personal tour of various Gospel accounts by none other than Jesus himself―an experience that radically challenges Emma’s perception of what it really means to be a Christian.
