Our Last Awakening
“Bring us, Lord our God,at our last awakening,into the house and gate of heaven . . .’ John Donne’s prayer speaks of the hope and promise of a life with God that embraces us beyond death as well as during our time on earth. However, people of faith are not exempt from fears, fantasies and speculation, nor from the normal sequence of grief reactions that afflict bereaved human beings. Poetry, whether or not it is consciously religious, can help. In this selection of poems and thoughtful commentaries, Janet Morley offers an enriching approach to a subject we might prefer to avoid contemplating – our ordinary mortality. Here you will find the work of Dylan Thomas, Gillian Clarke, Philip Larkin, U. A. Fanthorpe, Seamus Heaney, Ann Griffiths, Jane Kenyon, Anne Stevenson, A. K. Ramanujan, Richard Baxter, George Herbert, Roger McGough and many more. Ranging in tone from joyful and ecstatic to gentle, ironic, despairing and even hilarious, these writers help us to look at death, accompany the dying, celebrate those who have died, and articulate our hope about what lies beyond. As a result, we have an opportunity to experience the whole range of human emotions about what it means to live, to love and to be loved.

Are you living by faith?
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.
Join Dr. Tony Evans as he looks at those who are in the Bible’s Hall of Faith–Old Testament heroes such as Abraham, Noah, and Rahab, who let God lead their lives–and how their journeys can help you understand what it means to walk in faith. In Kingdom Heroes, you will discover how you can…
*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
Are you ready to leave the world behind and follow Him? Kingdom Heroes will motivate you to stop relying on your own strength and experience God’s unlimited power in your life.

Kingdom Race Theology$11.99Add to cart
The 2020 murder of George Floyd ignited a racial firestorm throughout America, provoking lament and grief over a long history of tragedy. The widespread protests gave way to a heated discussion about terms such as systemic racism, white privilege, and Critical Race Theory, all framed by the slogan “black lives matter.” The beginnings of a helpful dialogue on diversity became a heated battle, one that quickly spread to the church.
Drawing on forty years of ministry experience, Tony Evans writes with a fearless and prophetic voice, probing to the heart of the issue and pointing to God’s Word as the solution. Kingdom Race Theology helps people and churches commit to restitution, reconciliation, and responsibility. His penetrating and practical ideas will help pastors and church leaders sort through the conflicting theories, finding sensible solutions in the form of individual and collective action plans. Christians can work together across racial lines to repair the damage done by a long history of racial injustice.
