Found Adrift: 40 Days of Recovering Grace
Life is hard. It pulls us in all directions, and most of them lead us away from God. Jobs, kids, spouses—we find the demand exhausting and never ending. Each demand on our life pulls us further and further from the shoreline, so it feels that it will be too much work to get back to where we’re supposed to be spiritually. But no matter how many steps away from God we take, it only takes one to come back. Make this your first step. You can pull through this, with grace. Found Adrift is a series of short devotionals that help you get back in tune with God. If you’ve found yourself drifting from where you know you should be in your walk with God, you might be a drifter, like me. This devotional is the paddle you need to get back on track.
Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity
Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this book, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God’s gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God.
