Seeking God's guidance is a focus for many believers. We want to know what God has planned for our lives. Are we making the right decision? Are we in his will? For some people, knowing God is guiding their lives makes them relax and enjoy the ride. But others fear making the wrong choice and find themselves paralyzed as they wait for signs from above. J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom answer these fears with God's Will. With solid biblical footing, they shed light on the notion of God's guidance in response to the many misunderstandings well-meaning Christians can have. Readers seeking God's will in major life decisions, as well as anyone interested in understanding how God guides us, will welcome this practical and inspiring book.

Desiring God

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

Many Christians are concerned with finding God's will for their lives. In this fresh approach to decision-making, Gary Meadors emphasizes that the Bible exhorts followers to "do" God's will, not to "find" it. The Bible is clear on many matters, but how can believers know God's will about issues the Bible does not directly address? Meadors offers Christians an objective procedure for decision-making-one based on scriptural revelation as well as their biblical worldview and set of values. Godly discernment does not depend on subjective criteria. As believers learn to apply God's truth to daily decisions, they will become more reflective and confident, taking ownership in processing life's difficult choices. Decision-Making God's Way provides helpful, thought-provoking insight for Christians wanting to know God's plans for their life.

For several decades, Michael Coogan's introductory course on the Old Testament has been a perennial favorite among students at Harvard University. In God and Sex, Coogan examines one of the most controversial aspects of the Hebrew Scripture: What the Old Testament really says about sex, and how contemporary understanding of those writings is frequently misunderstood or misrepresented. In the engaging and witty voice generations of students have appreciated, Coogan explores the language and social world of the Bible, showing how much innuendo and euphemism is at play, and illuminating the sexuality of biblical figures as well as God. By doing so, Coogan reveals the immense gap between popular use of Scripture and its original context. God and Sex is certain to provoke, entertain, and enlighten readers.

God does not expect a Christian to begin and end at the point of receiving salvation. The purpose of salvation is to usher one into the Kingdom of God. One needs to follow up their salvation with a continual personal development consistent with the new life. After birth, a baby should begin to crawl, then to stand, then to speak more distinctly, then to run and eventually grow into an adult. It is the same with the Christian. After one receives salvation, God expects them to develop, stage by stage, neither ceasing nor retracting. This is the only way one could enrich their Christian life. This is also how they could fortify it. The objective of this book is to motivate you to become a valuable Christian in the various spheres of your life. The book provides you with useful knowledge on how you could continuously develop yourself in this direction.
