Meeting Girls Like Us Book 2 Old Testament Women

$8.95

While devout Christians revere the Bible, many tend to regard it as an allegorical text written thousands of years ago and ignore its relevance to modern life.

In Meeting Girls like Us, Book 2: Old Testament Women, Barby Bailey takes the opposite approach. She analyzes the stories of six biblical heroines and uses them as inspirational examples of how modern women can cope with the many challenges around them. Not only does she bring these women to life, but she also regards them as sisters who have confronted and conquered similar problems.

She tells us about Naomi, who battled famine, homelessness, death, and poverty. There's Hannah, who used to power of prayer to cope with her infertility. Abigail deals with a wealthy but ill-tempered husband, Bathsheba struggles for forgiveness, Ezekiel's wife was carted off to a foreign land against her will, and Gomer contended with temptation and infidelity. Bailey personalizes each of these stories, annotating them with scriptural references and amplifying their meaning by relating them to her own life.

In relating these six stories, Bailey not only makes us feel that we know these women: she allows us to understand ourselves better.

Evangelicals stand divided in their view of women in the church. On one side stand complementarians, arguing the full worth of women but assigning them to differing roles. On the other side stand egalitarians, arguing that the full worth of women demands their equal treatment and access to leadership roles. Is there a way to mend the breach and build consensus? Sarah Sumner thinks there is. Avoiding the pitfalls of both radical feminism and reactionary conservatism, she traces a new path through the issues--biblical, theological, psychological and practical--to establish and affirm common ground. Arguing that men and women are both equal and distinct, Sumner encourages us to find ways to honor and benefit from the leadership gifts of both. Men and Women in the Church is a book for all who want a fresh and hope-filled look at a persistent problem.

In this updated and expanded edition of The Silence of Adam, Crabb and his colleagues, biblical scholar Don Hudson and counselor Al Andrews, offer a fresh look at how God designed men. The book deals thoughtfully and honestly with men's ongoing struggles and exposes the difficulties they have in relationships.

And it summons them beyond their paralyzing fear of failure to bold risk-taking, courageous action, deep spirituality, and full-hearted living.

    Lisa Gungor thought she knew her own story: small-town girl meets boy in college and they blissfully walk down the aisle into happily ever after. Their Christian faith was their lens and foundation for everything--their marriage, their music, their dreams for the future. But as their dreams began to come true, she began to wonder if her religion was really representative of the 'good news' she had been taught.

    She never expected the questions to lead as far as they did when her husband told her he no longer believed in God. The death of a friend, the unraveling of relationships and career, the loss of a worldview, and the birth of a baby girl with two heart defects all led Lisa to a tumultuous place; one of depression and despair. And it was there that her perspective on everything changed. The Most Beautiful Thing I've Seen tells the story of what can happen when you dare to let go of what you think to be true; to shift the kaleidoscope and see new colors and dimension by way of broken pieces.

    Lisa's eloquent, soul-stirring memoir brings you to a music stage before thousands of fans and a front porch where two people whisper words that scare them to the core. It is the story of how doubt can spark the beginning of deeper faith; how a baby born with a broken heart can bring love and healing to the hearts of many, and ultimately, how the hardest experience in life often ends up saving us.

    Regarding gender relations, the evangelical world is divided between complementarians and egalitarians. While both perspectives have much to contribute, the discussion has reached a stalemate. Michelle Lee-Barnewall critiques both sides of the debate, challenging the standard premises and arguments and offering new insight into a perennially divisive issue in the church. She brings fresh biblical exegesis to bear on our cultural situation, presenting an alternative way to move the discussion forward based on a corporate perspective and on kingdom values. The book includes a foreword by Craig L. Blomberg and an afterword by Lynn H. Cohick.

    Sometimes hard circumstances in life make it difficult for us to be all that God wants us to be.

    But Tony Evans urges men to stop looking at these things as excuses and instead see them as challenges and opportunities for success.

    Looking at men of God throughout the Bible such as Moses, Joseph, and David, Evans challenges men to put down our excuses, stop compromising, and fight to be men of commitment and character. Despite setbacks, failures, and pressures, we can still find purpose, meaning, and direction in life and be the men God calls us to be.

    Now & Not Yet Making Sense of Single Life in the Twenty First Century

    $14.99
    Nine out of ten young women say they're hoping for marriage,
    but three out of ten women are still single at thirty.

    The difference between life here and life hoped for can be disillusioning-and cultural changes have made single life in the twenty-first century more confusing than ever. Now and Not Yet offers guidance for navigating this new territory with purpose and contentment. Combining profiles of individual women, observations on today's culture, and spiritual insights, author Jennifer Marshall presents a unique perspective on the single woman's journey.

    Make sense of life in the gap between expectations and reality

    Singleness may be an unexpected in-between, but it's much more than a holding pattern. Now and Not Yet is about making the most of the time between now and the not yet for which so many women hope.
