The Heaven Promise

Is Heaven real? If so, what is Heaven like? What does it take to go there? These are just some of the questions that author Scot McKnight tackles in this fantastic volume, "The Heaven Promise." 

Like a surgeon with a theological scalpel, McKnight cuts through all of the "imaginative imaginations" to give sound, biblical, theological answers to the "heaven questions." 

This book came to me about a week after my grandmother had passed away. While I am firm in my beliefs and convictions about what the Bible says (and doesn't say) about Heaven, I believe that McKnight does a masterful job in outlining the truth about Heaven.

This is a volume worth buying, reading, studying, rereading, and sharing. There is life after death...and as the author says, "There is life after life after death." And "The Heaven Promise" tells you all about it.

I was given a copy of this book for free by the publisher for an honest review.

Finding Your Way Back To God - DVD

This review is for the DVD that accompanies the book by Dave and Jon Ferguson. It is a tough review, because I have not read the book, which I am sure one should do. 

However, in watching the videos on this disc, the viewer is led systematically through the process (or the steps) of "finding your way back to God." This, of course, is what Christianity and the Great Commission is all about - helping people connect or reconnect (countless times) to God. 

The testimonials and commentary on this DVD are like laying brick upon brick in building a house of restoration for those who have seemingly drifted - or intentionally turned away - from God. 

You can absolutely find your way back to God - and this DVD study is a GREAT asset to help you along the way! 

I was given this DVD free of charge for an honest review.

Lazarus Awakening DVD Study Pack

Just as she has done it before...Joann Weaver has done it again! She has captured the heart-longing of every human being: To live life knowing you are loved by God. 

The book is outstanding, and the DVD Study Pack is a SUPERB addition to the book. I think it allows the reader/learner to absorb more fully the truths of Scripture shared in the book. 

The truth shared here is deep enough to not be called "shallow," but is simple enough to be comprehended easily and not be "over our heads." 

If you are looking for a resource to deepen the truth of God's love and your place with Him, do yourself a favor and get Lazarus Awakening!

Lazarus Awakening

In the third book of a three-book series, Joanna Weaver encourages us to look at our relationship with God in a different way. It is not about keeping rules, fulfilling obligations, or living by the law. The basis of our relationship with God is LOVE. 

Jesus loved Lazarus. Jesus loves you. And just as He called Lazarus to new life (physically), He is calling each of us (spiritually) to walk in a new reality in our relationship with Him. 

As in any relationship, you will not understand having to go through what you will go through. Neither will you understand the delays, decisions, and disappointments you will experience along the way. You will not understand God's action...or inaction, at times. But the author encourages us to do one thing in order to persevere through the perplexity of it all: Embrace God's Love For You!

You should really give this book a try! You will hear your name being called - out of the tombs, out of the grave clothes, and INTO the light of the Lord's love.

POSSIBLE by Stephan Bauman

Stephan Bauman has indeed given us a "blueprint for changing how we can change the world." Changing the world is possible...but we must change how we think it can be done. The need for change is is urgent...and it is POSSIBLE. 

Bauman, the president and CEO of World Relief, really shows how even though one person cannot be the entire change, every person CAN be PART of the change! If we will band together, The Bible says in one place, "One shall chase a thousand, and two shall chase..." how many? Not two thousand, but TEN THOUSAND!!! In other words, there is a multiplying and exponential impact and effect when we work together. 

Can we change the world? Can we serve the poor for effectively and efficiently? Can we make a difference in our society? The answer is simple. It. Is. POSSIBLE!

Divine Applause

The only way anyone can really know the "invisible God" is if God decides to reveal Himself to mankind. Of course He revealed Himself ultimately in and through His Son, Jesus Christ. But today, in the lives of individuals, God continues to reveal himself in little and not so little ways, as well as in subtle and not so subtle ways.
This is the basic premise of Jeff Anderson's book, "Divine Applause." God is constantly revealing Himself to us in countless ways - if we will only "see" and "hear" Him. Knowing, seeing, and hearing God is within reach of every believer...anyone and everyone can achieve it. 

In a very practical way, the author talks about what it is to walk beside the Lord...and really, to have the Lord walk beside us! God is not just sitting on the sidelines of our life watching it unfold. He is involved. He is cheering us on. He applauds us. These are just some of the things you will discover while reading, "Divine Applause."
