heart_of_the_story_coverSUPER DEAL – SAVE 78% – ONLY $3.79

Randy Frazee is one of my favorite pastors and authors. He is one of those guys who just gets it. His book,  The Heart of the Story: God’s Masterful Design to Restore His People is available for just $3.79 today for Kindle.

The Heart of the Story will help you see God’s Word in a new and inspiring light. In the Bible’s seemingly disconnected stories you’ll discover one grand, unfolding epic—God’s story from Genesis onward, and your own story contained within it.

To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God’s story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural.

In 31 chapters, The Heart of the Story will open your eyes to God’s master-plan unfolding in the lives of the Bible’s characters—and in your own life. Discover the heart of God’s Upper Story, and the joy that comes as you align your story with God’s.

It's PersonalSUPER DEAL – SAVE 80% – ONLY $3.79

Brian and Amy Bloye are a church-planting couple that God has done great things through. Their new book, It’s Personal: Surviving and Thriving on the Journey of Church Planting, is one of the best books that I have ever seen addressing the challenges and the needs of church planting families. It is available for just $3.79 today on Kindle. This is a special offer in conjunction with the Exponential Church Planters Conference that is happening this week.

Every aspect of planting a church is personal. Like giving birth to a child, church planters give all they have to start new churches. So when people leave the church or criticize it, it’s hard not to take it personally. And while many pastors feel called by God to plant new churches, few are prepared for the inevitable toll it can take on their lives…and their families and friendships. Brian and Amy Bloye know firsthand that planting churches isn’t easy. While planting a church, they learned that God does not promise to make up for misguided priorities. In this book they talk about having a healthy marriage, raising children, finding the right balance of family and ministry, dealing with spiritual warfare, staffing and leadership challenges, and dealing with criticism—issues every church leader must deal with. An authentic manual for day -to -day life in ministry, couples will learn to identify and relate to experiences in the book, and will come away feeling empowered and inspired to thrive – not only in planting a church, but also for the long haul of life and ministry. They will also be challenged and encouraged to avoid some of the pitfalls of planting a church and be equipped to build, not just strong, prevailing ministries, but healthy marriages and families. It will also include intimate interviews in each chapter with several church planting couples who will open up their personal lives to give the reader some practical, real, authentic advice on dealing with some of the challenging issues that church planters face everyday.

SiftedSUPER DEAL – SAVE 80% – ONLY $3.79

Wayne Cordeiro, Francis Chan and Larry Osborne’s book, Sifted: Pursuing Growth through Trials, Challenges, and Disappointments, is only $3.79 for Kindle today.

Planting and leading a new church is not easy. There are the inevitable setbacks and challenges that come with launching anything new. And the process will test and try a leader’s faith, as they face discouragement  loneliness, and failure. In this book, pastor and seasoned church leader Wayne Cordeiro speaks the truth in love, offering wisdom and insight to prepare leaders as they face the difficulties and hardships of church planting, while providing encouragement and inspiration for the journey. ‘Sifted’ is based on Jesus’ encouragement to Peter in Luke 22 to keep his faith and minister to others from his weakness. An experienced practitioner, Wayne shares the things he wishes he’d known when he was starting a new church. With additional stories from other prominent, seasoned leaders, each chapter includes a thought provoking, challenge question to develop a heart that is surrendered to God, focused on ‘being and becoming’ versus ‘doing and accomplishing.’ Wayne writes about a healthy integration and balance of personal care and leadership amidst the difficulties of the church planting journey. Loneliness and discouragement are normal in church planting, but God cares more about our journey of faith and who we are becoming than our worldly accomplishments and the churches we build. Church planting is an ongoing process of surrender, personal growth and character development. The book will challenge leaders to persevere and rededicate themselves to their calling, their marriage, and their family. Instead of a ‘how to’ book on models and methods, this is a combination of a self-assessment book that challenges leaders’ scorecards of success, encourages leaders to realize that they are not alone in what they are experiencing, and provides wisdom for the long haul to position younger leaders for a life of ministry and finish strong.

Groundbreaking research based on a national database of over 200,000 churches shows that the overall United States population is growing faster than the church.

What does this mean for you, your church, and the future of Christianity in North America? The American Church in Crisis offers unprecedented access to data that helps you understand the state of the church today. ‘We live in a world that is post-Christian, postmodern, and multi-ethnic, whether we realize it or not,’ says the author. This book not only gives a realistic picture that confirms hunches and explodes myths, but it provides insight into how the church must change to reach a new and changed world with the hope of the gospel.

Readers will find a richly textured mosaic with optimistic and challenging stories. Charts, diagrams, and worksheets provide church leaders and motivated church members with a stimulating read that will provoke much discussion. Questions for discussion accompany the chapters.
