Chosen And I Will Give You Rest Novel Three
To the Pharisees, Jesus is a blasphemer. To the Roman authorities, he’s a threat to their rule and order. But to the masses, he’s a miraculous healer and a profound teacher.
In this third installment of The Chosen series, we see Jesus healing the sick, preaching the Sermon on the Mount, feeding the five thousand, and raising the dead. We see his enemies growing ever more determined to silence him. And we see his very human disciples struggling with their own questions and concerns, believing in but not yet understanding their Messiah.
Based on the acclaimed TV series The Chosen, the most amazing story ever told–the life of Jesus–gets a fresh, new telling from New York Times bestselling author Jerry B. Jenkins.

Promise : Gods Purpose And Plan For When Life Hurts$15.99Add to cart
In his work as a priest and commentator for FOX News, Father Jonathan Morris has traveled to the troubled spots of the world, meeting with Muslim youth during the rioting in Paris, sitting down with populists at odds with the Church in Venezuela, and investigating human trafficking in Germany. Now Father Jonathan peels back the layers of questions that arise when someone asks, “Why me?” in response to human suffering. With an accessible voice and calming pastoral guidance, Father Jonathan leads readers through each step of suffering-from doubt and anger to healing and acceptance.
The Promise comprises three parts, each addressing a step in the process of healing. Part 1, “God on Trial,” speaks to doubts and anger that arise when we suffer and poses tough questions such as “Does God even care?” and “Why should we trust a God who allows innocent suffering?” Part 2 takes the reader on a journey of finding emotional and spiritual healing from suffering. In part 3 Father Jonathan introduces the five “Principles for Freedom-Living.” From living your personal vocation to a step-by-step guide for sketching a plan for your spiritual life, the freedom principles are practical and easily applied to everyday life. Together these five principles have the power to transform what would otherwise be useless suffering into a means of great sanctification and personal fulfillment. While pulling back the layers of philosophy and theology that surround human suffering, Father Jonathan offers not only a deeply spiritual answer but also a practical one to this most fundamental of human questions: Why do we suffer?
The Promise not only addresses how to understand and live with suffering, but also poses the toughest question regarding our relationship to God: Why do we suffer under a benevolent God? Father Jonathan delves into how we can heal from the spiritual, emotional, and even physical scars left behind by suffering. The Promise offers five principles for living a free life, or a life free of the fear that God is not there for us, and offers comfort and hope to those experiencing hard times.
Under Construction : Working With The Architect$14.00Add to cart
Imagine yourself as a house under construction. What does it mean to develop as a follower of Jesus? Jesus wants to remake us, from the ground up, to reconstruct us so that we become the people he had in mind. Christians are built on his firm foundation. But if we barely allow Jesus through the front door, it is no surprise that we are left wondering whether this really is as good as it gets. Neil O’Boyle shows us what it means to open ourselves up, so that the light of Christ shines into the dark nooks and exposes the sagging rafters. In the living room, what are we watching? In the bathroom, do we take care of ourselves? In the privacy of our bedroom, what are we like? In the dining room, what are our guests doing? In the garden, will there be fruit? In the garden shed, what tools has Jesus given us?
