Jesus : A Novel
A Novel by Walter Wangerin Jr. The Jesus of the Bible, revealing God’s heart in the midst of time and culture. With eloquence and beauty, the award-winning author of The Book of the Dun Cow, The Book of God, and Paul: A Novel, turns his pen to history’s most compelling figure, Jesus of Nazareth. In vibrant language, Walter Wangerin Jr. sweeps away centuries of tradition and reveals a man of flesh-and-heart immediacy. Passionate, intelligent, and irresistibly real, this is a Jesus pulsing with life, who will captivate you as thoroughly as he did the men and women who walked with him across Galilee’s golden countryside. Days of centuries past become today, lit with bright colors of the imagination. Wangerin shows you Jesus through the eyes of the two people who were with him at the very foot of the cross, the two who knew and loved him best: John the apostle, and Jesus’ beloved mother, Mary . . . “Angels in legions sang when you were born, my beautiful Yeshi! At midnight they poured down from the heavens, every one a whirling star, ten thousand voices in a sky-borne choir. ‘Glory,’ they sang, and I felt the bedrock tremble. You popped your eyes open. You peered around, seeking the source of the music and waving your hands as if to catch the stars in them!” Here is a magnum opus of image and emotion: Jesus bringing his father the sacrificial lamb in Jerusalem’s temple … Mary desperately searching for her son in the wind-lashed rain … the cry of gratitude from a leper’s lips … the loving intimacy of Jesus in prayer … the fury of religious leaders … the agony of an iron crucifixion spike piercing human sinew … Loving son, intimate friend, and brilliant teacher-tender in heart, fierce in anger, wholehearted in joy and in grief, deeply human yet unmistakably divine-this is the Jesus who lives and breathes in these pages.

Daily, each of us must choose between giving in to the world’s pressure to trust in ourselves, or yielding to God’s desire for us to hand control over our lives to Him. While following God’s directions when you don’t see immediate results can be difficult, the payoff will always be tremendous.

*commit to giving God your very best in everyday life
*use trials as opportunities to strengthen your faith
*leave a strong spiritual foundation for the generations that follow you

Kingdom Encounters : Experiencing More Of God When Life Hurts$16.00Add to cart
Many faithful church-goers often feel like something is missing. Perhaps you need more than a daily devotional or small group discussion. Perhaps you feel like you’re just going through the motions. What all Christians need for the spiritual journey is a vibrant life-changing kingdom encounter.
Dr. Tony Evans identifies kingdom encounters as powerful moments when we connect with God beyond information and through experience. In Kingdom Encounters, Dr. Evans explores how the faithful characters of Scripture encountered God–and were forever changed. As we see in the lives of these characters, these moments often occur in the middle of conflicts and trials when we least expect it. Dr. Evans’ hope for you is that, “you realize that when things are going left, you feel trapped and God seems absent, that you are probably right where God wants you in order to experience a life-altering kingdom encounter.” Join Dr. Evans as he explores how these moments can bolster your faith, restore your hope, and make clear to you the face of our almighty God.
