Addiction has become an epidemic in our society that is destroying the lives of people around the world at a rapidly increasing rate. When families have a loved one or even a friend who has been drawn into the world of drugs and alcohol addiction, or addiction of any kind, they are faced with the same challenging questions: is there a way out? Can a person truly break free from the bondage of addiction? The answer is YES YOU CAN!
Addiction of any kind can be beaten. There is hope and there is a way. The journey of recovery is a process of rebuilding every aspect of an individual’s life. It’s the exciting journey of discovering who you really are and who God created you to be. No matter how bad the situation, God has a plan to restore and redeem the life of an addict. Your best life is just one decision away! Brennan was addicted to drugs and alcohol for 15 years before he gave his life to Christ. He has overcome drug and alcohol addiction and has been sober for the past 13 years. This book is a practical guide of his first-hand experience and his personal journey in overcoming addiction. May God bless you and empower you to overcome as you read this book!

'Let me say to Mr Botha: apartheid is doomed! It has been condemned in the Councils of God, rejected by every nation on the planet and is no longer believed in by the people who gave it birth. Apartheid is the god that has failed.' So preached Bishop Peter Storey in 1986. Challenging apartheid wherever he could, he led the SA Methodist Church into what many whites saw as uncomfortable 'political' territory.
Join him in his inspiring journey from sailor-turned-minister to the South African Council of Churches leadership in its darkest hour, from tending to Robert Sobukwe and Nelson Mandela on Robben Island, through the forced removals of District Six and the storm surrounding Stompie Seipei's murder. I Beg to Differ spans a parish minister’s sorrows and joys, founding Life Line SA, the bombing of Khotso House and a close shave with death with Desmond Tutu. Storey shares the convictions that inspired him to minister amid the teargas, violence and intimidation of the apartheid regime.
We are living through a period of cultural climate change. We have outsourced morality to the markets on the one hand, and the state on the other. The markets have brought wealth to many, and the state has done much to contain the worst excesses of inequality, but neither is capable of bearing the moral weight of showing us how to live.
This has had a profound impact on society and the way in which we interact with each other. Traditional values no longer hold, yet recent political swings show that modern ideals of tolerance have left many feeling rudderless and adrift. In this environment we see things fall apart in unexpected ways - toxic public discourse makes true societal progress almost unattainable, a more divisive society is fuelled by identity politics and extremism, and the rise of a victimhood mentality calls for 'safe spaces' but stifles debate. The influence of social media seems all-pervading and the breakdown of the family is only one result of the loss of social capital. Many fear what the future may hold.
Delivering a devastatingly insightful critique of our modern condition, and assessing its roots and causes from the ancient Greeks through the Reformation and Enlightenment to the present day, Sacks argues that there is no liberty without morality, and no freedom without responsibility.
If we care about the future of western civilisation, all of us must play our part in rebuilding our common moral foundation. Then we will discover afresh the life-transforming and counterintuitive truths that a nation is strong when it cares for the weak, and rich when it cares for the poor.
Here is an inspiring vision of a world in which we can all find our place, and face the future without fear.
Among Beth Mooreís very best-selling books to date is Believing God, a powerful study of Isaiah 43 and Hebrews 11 that centers on one simple yet bold question: Do you believe God or merely believe in Him? Moore explains how Godís plan is for the believerís life to really work so all will know His promises are entirely true. When we begin to take God at His Word, the result is a fresh, contagious explosion of faith. And now the enduring favorite is available in a convenient day-by-day reading format, reminding us time and again that God is bigger than we can imagine and faithful to be who He says He is, do what He says He can do, and help us be who He says we are. Believe it!

Jean Vanier celebrates the gospel of John in his highly anticipated latest work, DRAWN INTO THE MYSTERY OF JESUS THROUGHOUT THE GOSPEL OF JOHN. Thoroughly personal and inspiring, DRAWN INTO THE MYSTERY challenges all Christians to encounter the fullness of life lived in close communion with God. Vanier writes: "These insights that I share in this book come from the life of Jesus in me....They also flow from my life with people who are weak and who have taught me to welcome Jesus from the place of the poverty in me." Jean Vanier was a friend and influential mentor to the late Henri Nouwen. Toward the end of his life, Nouwen left Harvard to live and work at one of Jean Vanier's L'Arche communities. This was perhaps the most profound experience of Christianity Nouwen experienced. The thought and spiritual direction/discipleship of Jean Vanier is available to all in DRAWN INTO THE MYSTERY OF JESUS THROUGH THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

Experience how the power of the cross unleashes meaning and purpose in the midst of your daily life.
This meditative and spiritual reflection by Ken Costa considers the cross and the king who died upon it. Christ's work on the cross established a kingdom that is strange indeed, if a king died on the cross in order to establish it. It is a kingdom where suffering and abandonment are transformed into the power of presence and live, a kingdom where a King exchanges gifts of great value for worthless dross, where a robber becomes righteous, and a criminal becomes the first citizen of heaven. Spend some time as Easter draws near considering the strange, upside-down kingdom, where broken things are made whole.

Die mees basiese vraag waarvoor elkeen in die lewe te staan kom, is: Hoekom is ek hier? Wat is my doel? Volgens Rick Warren le die antwoord by God en sy ewige doel met elke mens se lewe. Ware betekenis en belang kom van insig in en vervulling van die doel waarvoor God ons op die aarde geplaas het. Die doelgerigte lewe stel lesers in staat om te begryp waaroor die lewe eintlik gaan, en om die lewe te begin leef waarvoor God hulle geskep het. Deur die gebruik van Bybelse verhale en deur die Bybel self te laat praat, verduidelik Warren God se vyf doelwitte vir ons elkeen: Ons is beplan vir God se behae: Jou eerste doel is om Hom opreg te aanbid; Ons is gevorm vir God se familie: Jou tweede doel is om opregte sielsgemeenskap te ervaar; Ons is geskep om soos Christus te word: Jou derde doel is om opregte dissipelskap te leer; Ons is gevorm om God te dien: Jou vierde doel is om opregte bediening te beoefen; Ons is gemaak vir ín sending: Jou vyfde doel is om opregte Evangelieprediking uit te leef. Hierdie hersiene en uitgebreide weergawe beklemtoon die vraag: Wat op aarde doen ek hier? Dit is ook die lewensboodskap van Rick Warren, stigterspastor van Saddleback Church. Die boek is in ín boeiende styl geskryf en in 42 kort hoofstukke (ses weke) ingedeel wat as dagstukkies gelees kan word, deur kleingroepe bestudeer en deur kerke gebruik kan word.
ín 7-week-aksieplan om oorwinning te behaal in die geestelike stryd. Daar woed elke dag, die hele dag lank, ín onsigbare oorlog om vroue. Dit kan nie gesien of gehoor word nie, maar dit kan in elke aspek van ín mens se lewe gevoel word. ín Toegewyde, bose vyand wil chaos veroorsaak in alles wat vir ín vrou saak maak: haar hart, gedagtes, huwelik, kinders, verhoudings, drome en toekoms. Maar sy oorlogsplan behels dat hy haar onverhoeds en ongewapen moet vang. In die Bybelstudie Die wapenrusting van God, deur New York Times-topverkoperouteur en motiveringspreker Priscilla Shirer, word vroue met behulp van Skrifstudie en besprekingsvrae toegerus met die wapenrusting van God, waarvan gebed die belangrikste is. Die wapenrusting van God is meer as net ín Bybelse beskrywing van ín gelowige se wapenrusting; dit is ín 7-week-aksieplan om oorwinning te behaal in die geestelike stryd. Ook beskikbaar in Engels onder die titel Armor of God.

One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, 'Mere Christianity' has sold millions of copies worldwide. The book brings together C.S. Lewis's legendary radio broadcasts during the war years, in which he set out simply to 'explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times'. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, 'Mere Christianity' provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to absorb a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith.

Love is easy to give when you are getting it back. Are we still called to God's plan of how to love when we are getting none in return? Shauna Shanks's brave journey through obedience reveals the outcome of when we dare to follow God's ludicrous outline for love as described in 1 Corinthians 13. Wrecked with news of her husband's affair and his request for a divorce, Shauna finds herself urgently faced with a decision. Does she give up and divorce her husband and move on, or does she try to fight for her marriage? The former choice seems to contradict God's plan for how to love, such as "love never gives up," "love is patient," and "love is kind." Taking God at His word and assuming the love chapter was really meant to be followed literally word by word, she not only finds herself falling in love with her spouse again, but also falling in love with Jesus, which changes everything. First Corinthians 13 presents an audacious, illogical, and irrational context of how to love, meant to be applied to every marital context not just the fairytale marriage. If God's instructions seem illogical and audacious, you might just expect the same kind of results in return! This book is not air-brushed. It was written in the midst of the author's deepest trauma, and she purposefully did not edit out her mistakes and failures during that season. This book will resonate with women who do not feel like the picture-perfect Christian woman with the fairytale life and marriage. A Fierce Love is the story of a train wreck and reaching out to God not in the calm but in the chaos and finding hope for the future.
