Successful Leaders of the Bible
By Katara Washington Patton
If you could drop biblical men and women into our world today, what kind of lessons might they teach you? In SUCCESSFUL LEADERS OF THE BIBLE, the Bible's most exceptional leaders come alive in fictionalised form to help readers understand that the lessons God imparted in the Bible millennia ago are just as applicable today as they were then. For example, if David lived today and continued to chase after God, how might God help him rise to a position of great power just as he did eons ago? If Moses was alive, imagine how God might use him to advocate for others. These stories are perfect for those who want to better themselves and see biblical characters in a whole new light.
Successful Women of the Bible
By Katara Washington Patton
Contemporary "success" is often defined in financial terms or by number of Twitter followers. But for women of faith, success is so much more. And it turns out the timeless qualities of success are exemplified by women on the pages of their favourite book, the Bible. Deborah's model leadership is just as relevant today as it was in the age of the Hebrew judges. Esther's courage to stand up for a cause, Miriam's joyful support of others, Priscilla's exemplary partnership skill, Lydia's business acumen, and other characteristics of women in the Bible are embodied in lively storytelling. Busy Christian women--often working and raising a family--crave examples of success. Here are distilled principles they can use to succeed in today's noisy culture. The lessons of these icons of the faith apply, even in the age of Facebook and Instagram.

Selling Water by the River
By Shane Hipps
Many Christians think of Jesus as the Saviour whose resurrection promises fulfilment in the life to come. Others instead focus on Jesus' moral teachings and his commitment to achieving social justice in the present world. Both views are rooted in scripture, and neither is wrong.However, each speak only part of the truth of who Jesus is and in SELLING WATER BY THE RIVER, Shane Hipps underscores that Jesus is also, and most importantly, the Master of the inner life - the Teacher who reveals that the object of human beings' deepest longing dwells within each of us.This life-changing book isn't about 'religion' or 'spirituality'; it's about realising that what we search for already resides inside us and how the heaven we long for isn't just a gift when we die but a gift while we live.
