    • The Battle Belongs to the Lord: Defeating Life's Struggles Through Worship.
      By Joyce Meyer / Time Warner Book Group
      There are many things in the world today that threaten us. To live in fear and anxiety is far removed from the victorious life that God wants to give us. But often our biggest enemy is not "out there" it's "in here," in our hearts and minds. How can we break the strongholds of fear and stop the pattern of destructive thinking? Best-selling author Joyce Meyer shows you how in her new book The Battle Belongs to the Lord: Overcoming Life's Struggles through Worship. Drawing from the Old Testament, Meyer illustrates how Jehosaphat, Gideon, and Elijah came through times of crisis by following God's 4-phase battle plan, allowing Him to fight for them. With God there are no hopeless cases. No matter what you're facing, the battle belongs to the Lord and He always wins it for you.

    • First Comes Love.
      By Scott Hahn / Random House, Inc
      Delving into the Gospels, Scott Hahn shows that family terminology-words like brother, sister, mother, father, and home, dominates Jesus' speech and the writings of His first followers, and that these very words illuminate Christianity's central ideas. Through real-life examples (both humorous and compassionate) and quotations drawn from the Scriptures, Hahn makes it clear that no matter what sort of family readers come from, no matter what sort of "dysfunction" they have experienced, they can find a family in the Church.

    • The Lamb's Supper: The Mass As Heaven On Earth
      By Scott Hahn / Random House, Inc., click here for more details
      Of all things Catholic, there is nothing that is so familiar as the Mass. With its unchanging prayers, the Mass fits Catholics like their favorite clothes. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. The Lamb's Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: The early Christians' key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist. Beautifully written, in clear direct language, this book will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.

    • Beginner's Guide to Intercession. By Dutch Sheets / Gospel Light
      As believers in Jesus Christ, we have been invited into a loving relationship with God as Father and Friend - a relationship that allows us to intercede for others. As we intercede, we take the place of another - loved one or stranger, individual or nation - in prayer. If our primary motivation for prayer becomes interceding to achieve the results we desire, we will ultimately fail. But when we approach intercession as an opportunity to partner with our wonderful Father, and when we intercede with His will in mind, we draw into a deeper, more intimate relationship with God. We also find ourselves being used by God to make history and change lives.

    • Praying for America.
      By Dutch Sheets / Gospel Light
      With a change in national leadership and the dawning of a new millennium, the Church in America is pregnant with expectation. Hope for revival and harvest is running high, even as paganism is strengthening its foothold in our culture and in the hearts and minds of the nation. So where do we go from here? What is God saying to the Western Church at this crucial time? What are His plans for our families, our cities and our nation? Just as Joshua admonished the Israelites after they crossed the Jordan, best-selling author Dutch Sheets challenges the Church to remain watchful, to avoid complacency and to prepare to cross over into what God has prepared for His people - a new season of promise, warfare and victory!

    • Praying Through Sorrows.
      By Chris Jackson & Dutch Sheets / Destiny Image

You will learn how to overcome the debilitating state of "hope deferred," while seeking a restoration of faith in God's goodness.
