Millennials (those born between 1980 and 2000) constitute a group of over 80 million individuals who are technologically astute, ethnically diverse, and culturally and vibrantly engaged. Yet they face high unemployment and massive debt, and they comprise the largest number of religiously unaffiliated individuals in American history. Concerned by these and other hard-hitting facts, experts Alex McFarland and Jason Jimenez have created a book that interviews top Christian leaders who work with Millennials and families. Their research and conversations will shed new light on what Christian parents must do to reach their young adult children. This book offers a strong voice of hope for parents, church leaders, and others who serve the Millennial generation.

HOW SIMPLICITY TRUMPS COMPLEXITY IN NATURE, BUSINESS, AND LIFE Complexity surrounds us. We have too much email, juggle multiple remotes, and hack through thickets of regulations from phone contracts to health plans. But complexity isn’t destiny. Sull and Eisenhardt argue there’s a better way. By developing a few simple yet effective rules, people can best even the most complex problems. In Simple Rules, Sull and Eisenhardt masterfully challenge how we think about complexity and offer a new lens on how to cope. They take us on a surprising tour of what simple rules are, where they come from, and why they work. The authors illustrate the six kinds o f rules that really matter - for helping artists find creativity and the Federal Reserve set interest rates, for keeping birds on track and Zipcar members organized, and for how insomniacs can sleep and mountain climbers stay safe. Drawing on rigorous research and riveting stories, the authors ingeniously find insights in unexpected places, from the way Tina Fey codified her experience at Saturday Night Live into rules for producing 30 Rock (rule five: never tell a crazy person he’s crazy) to burglars’ rules for robbery (“avoid houses with a car parked outside”) to Japanese engineers mimicking the rules of slime molds to optimize Tokyo’s rail system. The authors offer fresh information and practical tips on fixing old rules and learning new ones. Whether you’re struggling with information overload, pursuing opportunities with limited resources, or just trying to change your bad habits, Simple Rules provides powerful insight into how and why simplicity tames complexity.

Conquering and Victorious Bloodied, beaten, and broken: words associated with the battlefield. Words that spell “defeat,” but actually mean strength and courage. Because in order to get the wounds, you must first enlist in the battle. This book is for every man who has boldly said to life, “I’m in,” only to come up against inevitable trials and tribulations. The death of a loved one, broken promises, unexpected health problems, a business deal gone bad. The Wounded Warrior takes into account the lasting effects of these gut-wrenching blows…as well as less-often recognized sources of pain. Licensed psychologist Dr. Steve Stephens speaks man-to-man in this powerful book that will free you to become the victor God created you to be. Brave Men Bear Real Wounds Beneath your armor, you may be bloodied, beaten, or broken. Where there was once courage and confidence, you now harbor heartache and pain. Life—in all its glory—has taken its toll. But this is not the end. It is where healing starts and life begins. Dr. Steve Stephens speaks man-to-man about all kinds of wounds from the subtle burden of living with nagging regrets, to gut-wrenching blows that include: a divorce the death of a loved one a business deal gone bad betrayal by a trusted friend wounds from family members, and other devastating trials. More than encouragement and guidance, The Wounded Warrior is packed with pointed questions, scriptural teachings, and honest talk about practical solutions. It’s time to move forward…and live once again! Story Behind the Book “After speaking on The Wounded Woman , some guys asked me, ‘What about us?’ I was taken aback and asked, ‘What do you mean?’ ‘Life is hard,’ one of them said. ‘People are cruel. As guys, we get beat up, and nobody addresses our wounds. Help us deal with the pain of getting shot down.’ Over the next month, I couldn’t get this conversation out of my mind. Every day I ran into some wounded warrior: a father facing the death of his son, a husband stunned by the unfaithfulness of his wife, a brother betrayed by a brother. Finally, I recognized I had to write something to encourage us guys.”—Dr. Steve Stephens From the Trade Paperback edition.
