The Battle Belongs to the Lord: Defeating Life's Struggles Through Worship.
By Joyce Meyer / Time Warner Book Group
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.
By Scott Hahn / Random House, Inc
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

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.

completion. Discover your role as a prayer warrior. Includes

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

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

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