1. Erasing Hell by Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle
With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. This is not a book about who is saying what. It’s a book about what God says. It’s not a book about impersonal theological issues. It’s a book about people who God loves. It’s not a book about arguments, doctrine, or being right. It’s a book about the character of God.
2.Indescribable by Louie Giglio and Matt Redman
Readers who love Giglio’s heart-stirring talks about the splendor of God’s creation now have the opportunity to draw on these life-changing biblical insights while contemplating glorious images of space and nature. Wrapped around these magnificent photographs are devotional words and scientific descriptions that awaken passion for the Creator.
3. Happily Ever After by Gary Chapman
Gary Chapman, author of The Five Love Languages, shows couples how to successfully navigate the six most common problems that couples face: fighting fair, negotiating change, managing money, getting along with your in-laws, raising kids, and maintaining a healthy sex life. He provides real-world examples and practical advice that will help you and your spouse communicate with each other for many years to come.
4. The Action Bible (illustrated by Sergio Cariello)
The attention-grabbing illustrations of artist, Sergio Cariello are full of rich color, dramatic shading and light, and bold designs that communicate the emotion and significance of the figures of the Bible. With 215 fast-paced narratives in chronological order, The Action Bible makes it easier for readers to follow the Bible’s historical flow as the story builds up to the thrilling climax of Christ’s life.
5. The Tehran Initiative by Joel Rosenberg
The countdown to disaster begins after Iran conducts its first atomic weapons test! Israel fears the Twelfth Imam—-the supposed Muslim messiah—-will order a nuclear attack.
