Are you facing difficult circumstances in your life right now? Perhaps you or someone you love is confronting a challenge that seems impossible, and hope feels far away. And yet, we know through faith that Jesus is with us in the midst of our trials. He is right there with you, giving strength and encouragement through His gentle presence.

In Jesus Today: Experience Hope Through His Presence, Sarah Young shares from her writings through 150 devotional readings written as though Jesus Himself is speaking to you. These readings were born out of a time of difficulty in Sarah's life when she underwent intense medical treatment. During that season as she was comforted by the Scriptures, she realized that hope shines the brightest when things look the darkest. These readings will help you discover as Sarah did, the peace that comes from seeking Jesus' presence right where you are.

This volume also features a padded hardcover binding, a Scripture index, a ribbon bookmark, and a presentation page for gift-giving.

The Bible is the story of God's interaction with his creation. It is a story that occurs over time, in many places, and through many events. It includes the lives and lessons learned by many people from many cultures. It's often easy to lose sight of the way in which God's story fits together when our primary way of looking at the Bible is a bit here and a bit there.

he new four-color Chronological Life Application Study Bible combines the proven resources of the Life Application Study Bible with a chronological format and several brand-new resources. The Bible is arranged in 10 chronological sections that help the reader to see how the various pieces of the Bible fit together. New section intros and timelines set the stage for the passages in each section. New archaeological notes and photographs help to bring God's story to life in a whole new way. And of course, the Life Application resources answer the all-important question—"so what?"

We are all chasing something. Our hearts were made to run hard and fast after things that move us. But as a generation we are all beginning to stir and wake up, identifying that these words don't satisfy for long, especially when compared to God. If God is real, and we are going to live with Him forever, shouldn't He be everything?

Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move us to stop chasing things that just make us feel happy and start living a life that matters. A life that is...Surrendered. Reckless. Courageous. If we truly know a God worth giving anything for, everything changes.

As believers in Christ, we claim to understand grace. From Sunday school to adulthood we've been taught that we're saved by grace. We know the Bible verses and the sinner's prayer, but have we really taken hold of it? Or rather, has it taken hold of us?

Grace isn't a nice idea. It's not a song lyric, or a warm, fuzzy feeling. It's the radical life of Christ lived in you. Grace gives you the freedom to love the unlovable, and forgive the unforgivable, because you know how much you're loved, and know how much you've been forgiven.

In Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine, Max Lucado calls readers back to consider the abundant richness of God's offer. It's an offer to live a changed life, a call to genuine transformation and the courage to see it through. Don't let grace pass you by. When you let it in, it will rock your world, and change your heart.
