For fans of inspirational books like the bestselling Chicken Soup series, a collection of inspiring personal stories from celebrities and ordinary people about their encounters with the Divine.

God Stories is a collection of life-changing experiences, all celebrating that breakthrough moment when the hand of a Divine Power was felt. Over one hundred true stories from celebrities and ordinary people alike, ranging from the dramatic (a woman asleep at the wheel was awakened in the nick of time by God's voice; another was stopped from stepping into the path of a deadly Australian snake) to everyday moments charged with significance (an answered prayer, a message of hope, a heavenly sign). With more than one-third contributed by Australians, including Mark McEntee of the Divinyls, who tells of an uplifting encounter with the spirit of his close friend Michael Hutchence, and Alan Bond's amazing moment from The America's Cup, each story has a powerful message to share. Real, honest and hopeful, these extraordinary encounters will renew spirits and affirm faiths.

“I used to be a lesbian.” In Gay Girl, Good God, author Jackie Hill Perry shares her own story, offering practical tools that helped her in the process of finding wholeness. Jackie grew up fatherless and experienced gender confusion. She embraced masculinity and homosexuality with every fiber of her being. She knew that Christians had a lot to say about all of the above. But was she supposed to change herself? How was she supposed to stop loving women, when homosexuality felt more natural to her than heterosexuality ever could? At age nineteen, Jackie came face-to-face with what it meant to be made new. And not in a church, or through contact with Christians. God broke in and turned her heart toward Him right in her own bedroom in light of His gospel. Read in order to understand. Read in order to hope. Or read in order, like Jackie, to be made new.

Nothing is more essential than knowing how to worship the God who created us. This book focuses readers on the essentials of God-honoring worship, combining biblical foundations with practical application in a way that works in the real world. The author, a pastor and noted songwriter, skillfully instructs pastors, musicians, and church leaders so that they can root their congregational worship in unchanging scriptural principles, not divisive cultural trends. Bob Kauflin covers a variety of topics such as the devastating effects of worshiping the wrong things, how to base our worship on God's self-revelation rather than our assumptions, the fuel of worship, the community of worship, and the ways that eternity's worship should affect our earthly worship. Appropriate for Christians from varied backgrounds and for various denominations, this book will bring a vital perspective to what readers think they understand about praising God.

Does it take a miracle to read the Bible? God wrote a book, and its pages are full of his glory. But we cannot see his beauty on our own, with mere human eyes. In Reading the Bible Supernaturally, John Piper aims to show us how God works through his written Word when we pursue the natural act of reading the Bible, so that we experience his sightgiving power—a power that extends beyond the words on the page. Ultimately, Piper shows us that in the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something miraculous happens: we are given eyes to behold the glory of the living God.

Imagine meeting God. Yes, the One who spoke His word and everything came into being: God! This is exactly what happened to a man named Isaiah, a prophet who lived more than 2,600 years ago. Isaiah’s ministry was defined by a life-changing encounter with God, as described in the sixth chapter of the Book of Isaiah. This momentous event in Isaiah’s life provides insights about God-directed, authentic worship. There are sixty-six chapters in the Book of Isaiah. The sixty chapters that follow this event are a testament to the fact that Isaiah’s life was given to God as an act of worship. This event was one link in a long chain of Isaiah’s lifelong commitment to worshipping and serving God. God is asking you and me to enter into the same worship experience that Isaiah knew: approach God in worship, surrender ourselves, experience God, and activate a living worship of God every day. God created worship so that we can know Him and be in a relationship with Him. Authentic worship is about being a person whose life―every thought, word, and action―reflects and points to the ultimate “worth-ship” of God. Isaiah discovered this truth in a most amazing way. In The Isaiah Encounter, learn from Isaiah’s experience about living an everyday life of worship.

If the goal of catechesis is to cultivate an encounter with Christ, why do religious educators spend so much time focused almost exclusively on ideas and not experiences? The reason is that many have never been shown a method that inspires the heart while also instructing the mind. Jared Dees, creator of the popular website The Religion Teacher, shows how applying the steps of lectio divina to teaching can reorient religious education toward encountering the person of Christ rather than merely sharing information about him. In Christ in the Classroom, Catholic author and speaker Jared Dees applies the five steps of lectio divina--reading/learning, meditation, prayer, contemplation, and action--to the ministry of catechesis. He offers teachers and catechists a practical framework for preparing lessons that broaden the focus of teaching from mostly intellectual learning to also encountering Christ in prayer, reflection, and action. Using this method, students and catechists come to know intimately the person of Christ at the same time that they are learning the tenets and traditions of the Church. Dees shares stories of success and failure from his own teaching experience and he offers dozens of field-tested strategies, tactics, and teaching methods to effectively integrate the steps of lectio divina into the classroom or other catechetical setting. Outfitted with these tools, both experienced and new religious educators will feel confident in their ability to teach effectively and lead their students to a life-changing encounter with Jesus.

Suppose you could ask God any question and get an answer. What would it be? Young people all over the world have been asking those questions. So Neale Donald Walsch, author of the internationally bestselling Conversations with God series had another conversation. Conversations with God for Teens is a simple, clear, straight-to-the-point dialogue that answers teens questions about God, money, sex, love, and more. Conversations with God for Teens reads like a rap session at a church youth group, where teenagers discuss everything they ever wanted to know about life but were too afraid to ask God. Walsch acts as the verbal conduit, showing teenagers how easy it is to converse with the divine. When Claudia, age 16, from Perth, Australia, asks, "Why can't I just have sex with everybody? What's the big deal?", the answer God offers her is: "Nothing you do will ever be okay with everybody. 'Everybody' is a large word. The real question is can you have sex and have it be okay with you?" There's no doubt that the casual question-and-answer format will help make God feel welcoming and accessible to teens. Conversations with God for Teens is the perfect gift purchase for parents, grandparents, and anyone else who wants to provide accessible spiritual content for the teen(s) in their lives.
