Martin Luther’s life was too exciting not to be written for teens and younger readers! In this fast-paced, action-packed novel of Martin Luther’s life, teen readers (and more than a few adults!) will be introduced to a fascinating time when princes ruled Europe and knights roamed the countryside. They’ll learn about a time when powerful forces lined up against each other and believing the wrong thing could get you killed. When Lightning Struck! is far more than just an adventure story, of course. It also tells a theological story. Drawing carefully from Luther’s own words, this book introduces readers to a kindred spirit who struggled with what knowing God through Scripture means for daily life. They will understand what was at stake and how powerfully liberating Luther’s idea of grace through faith was—in his time and in ours! In crisp, enjoyable prose, author Danika Cooley conveys both the drama and the meaning of the Reformation for younger readers like no one before her!

You've heard about the Pilgrims, but have you read the original story? Here is the dramatic true story of the Plymouth Pilgrims as told by an eyewitness to their lives: their persecutions, secret meetings, angry negotiations, religious disputes, savage storms, kidnaping and sabotage, fear and faith, and their desperate struggle to survive. This is William Bradford's own story-the Plymouth Pilgrim thrust into the leadership of a struggling colony. His 400-year-old story is now carefully paraphrased for twenty-first century readers. IN THIS BOOK YOU WILL FIND: * A timeline of crucial historical events leading up to the Plymouth settlement. * Chapter questions for study, discussion, and reflection. * Maps and illustrations unique to this book. * Obscure historical references clarified within the text as part of the story. * The list of Mayflower passengers grouped into families. * Archaic language paraphrased into a clear, dramatic first-person account. * Adherence to the content, convictions, and chronology of Bradford's journal. This fresh retelling of the Pilgrim's true story concludes with their first full year in the New World, thereby encompassing all the events that fascinate us most: from their persecutions in England, to their dangerous ocean voyage, their first encounters with Native Americans, their struggle against sickness and starvation, culminating with their now famous celebration that we call the "First Thanksgiving." In this book you will find neither patriotic hero-worship, nor politically correct revisionism. This is the true story of Governor William Bradford, with all his faith, fears, and frailties, but retold in modern language so readers may hear his story the way he might tell it today over a hot cup of tea at your kitchen table.

What Life as a Christian Really Looks Like New believers need to know what to expect. While many books cover the nuts and bolts of new faith--how to read the Bible, how to pray, how to find a church--in this book, Alex Early focuses on issues of the heart. What are Christians supposed to feel? What happens when they sin? What does God want from them? Designed to challenge and reassure, this book gives a realistic depiction of the Christian life, and includes such topics as how to rest in God's love, what forgiveness looks like when you blow it, what it means to find your identity in Christ, and how to pray with honesty and transparency. God isn't surprised when we struggle, and although being in a relationship with God is amazing, he never promised that this life would be easy. He can handle "real" people, and he pours out his reckless love regardless of what we do or think on any given day. We all need to be reminded of this, but especially those new to the faith. This book is ideal for new believers, but seasoned Christians should also have copies on hand to give away. Includes end-of-chapter questions and a "Christianese to English" glossary.

Prayer is a powerful force -- in Tennyson's oft-quoted phrase, "more things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of." But the Lord's Prayer is so familiar that we often take it for granted, reciting it by rote and missing its deeper meaning. "Pray Like This..." is an informative volume that helps you rediscover the simplicity and strength of the prayer that Jesus taught us. Alex Gondola carefully analyzes each of the prayer's ten petitions and explores how it is Christ's template for communicating with God. Suitable for personal devotions, adult study groups, sermon preparation, or gift-giving, "Pray Like This..." is a versatile resource that will unclog your spiritual arteries and open new pathways in your own prayer life. "In this straight-talking collection of sermons, we learn the Lord's Prayer for the first time. Fresh and well researched, we go back to basics in forward drive. Gondola has made the old and familiar alive and new." Donna E. Schaper Senior Pastor, Coral Gables Congregational Church Coral Gables, Florida "The sermons in Pray Like This... are brief, well developed, easy to follow, appropriately illustrated, and consistently focused on the biblical text. They are instructional in their exegetical and theological insights. They are inspirational in their poetic language and their passionate engagement of a listening congregation. I endorse the full flower of Alex Gondola's preaching here, and I vigorously inhale its fragrance." Eddie O'Neal Bartlet Professor of Sacred Rhetoric Emeritus Andover Newton Theological School Alex A. Gondola Jr., is senior pastor of Dennis Union Church (United Church of Christ) in Dennis, Massachusetts (located on Cape Cod). He has also served congregations in Springfield, Massachusetts; Rome, New York; and Utica, New York. Gondola is a graduate of Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania (B.A.), Andover Newton Theological School (M.Div.), and Colgate Rochester Divinity School in Rochester, New York (D.Min.), and has also studied at Hartford Seminary and the New College of Divinity of the University of Edinburgh (Scotland). He is the author of "Come As You Are" and "Don't Forget The Child" (CSS), and contributed several stewardship sermons to the CSS anthology "From Every Angle."
