The Heart is a Noisy Room

Ronald Boyd-MacMillan
Authors:
Ronald Boyd-MacMillan

Your heart, my heart, everyone's heart, is a noisy room full of voices. These voices can come deep from childhood, or from our culture, or from habits embraced in adulthood. These voices run our lives. They can even ruin them. But if we face them, they can also save us.We all have inner stories we tell ourselves - voices that seem inseparable from who we are. They can be crushingly negative, telling us we'll never amount to anything. Or they can be positive - and keep us addicted to achievement. Either way, if we stay oblivious to them, these inner voices will run our lives. But when we know how to relate to them, they can become our friends and our guides.In this ruthlessly practical and inspiringly visionary book, Ronald Boyd-MacMillan teaches us how to identify our inner voices - whether negative or positive - and gives us five tools to engage with them, leading us into lives of deeper freedom, fullness and joy.

Simon Ponsonby
Authors:
Simon Ponsonby

Simon Ponsonby has been called a 'preacher's preacher' on the one hand, and a 'people's theologian' on the other. He speaks and writes from a passion to see God glorified and people's lives changed - and with an increasing concern that too often, even those who are deeply committed to Christianity and church still don't seem to be much different from anyone else.In this punchy new book Simon sets out the challenge for all of us to look hard at our own lives and think about the life God is calling us to - to deal with the things that prevent us from following in spirit and in truth, and to face up to our failure to be true to the task God has set us. Tackling tough issues from porn to family life and digging deep into Bible stories from classics like Daniel and the Lion's Den to hard passages like those dealing with the Israelites' worship of Baal and Asherah, Simon takes us with him on a wide-ranging journey into the heart of what God wants for his people.Holiness is not always an easy read, but it is an important book that might just shake the church out of its current crisis if we will come together to heed its call to a deeper holiness that the world will see and take notice of.

Saying it Well

Charles R. Swindoll
Authors:
Charles R. Swindoll

SAYING IT WELL is a practical and readable book on becoming an effective and persuasive speaker, teacher and conversationalist. While most books on mastering the art of speaking take a very similar approach, mainly presenting philosophy, technique, and the how-to-do-it, SAYING IT WELL makes it personal and keeps it realistic.Swindoll lays out the foundational principles of communication, from preparing a speech, organizing thoughts, filtering out the superfluous and focusing on the important. He schools us in how to overcome fears, grab the listener's attention, deliver in a convincing manner ... and how and when to stop.This is a book for professional speakers and pastors as well as anyone who is called on from time to time to deliver a verbal presentation. With humorous stories and inventive, practical tips, one of America's premier communicators shows the reader how to speak with authority in every situation.

Light Force

Brother Andrew, Al Janssen
Authors:
Brother Andrew, Al Janssen

When the phenomenal success of GOD'S SMUGGLER made it too dangerous for his contacts in the underground church, Brother Andrew decided he could not return to Eastern Europe. He quietly turned his attention the the Middle East, and for the last thirty-five years he has been serving the Christian Church there, as well as witnessing to Jews and Muslims. His impassioned message is that there is a radical Christian approach to the stalemate of Middle East conflict. Only the gospel of love has the answer, and Christians are called to allow God to use them to demonstrate the example of Jesus. Now available with a fantastic new look to coincide with the B format edition of Brother Andrew's bestselling SECRET BELIEVERS, LIGHT FORCE brings Brother Andrew's story right up to date. It is every bit as exciting as GOD'S SMUGGLER, as Andrew has put his life on the line time and again in God's service.
