But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents’ best efforts to keep them forgotten.
Be Decisive (Jeremiah): Taking a Stand for the Truth (The BE Series Commentary)
Imagine living in a world with no moral absolutes. A place where truth is in the eye of the beholder. A society with eroding standards. Sound familiar? Yet this dilemma is not new. The prophet Jeremiah was called to take a public, and unpopular, stand for God’s truth. His story can inspire us to make the powerful, decisive choice to say firm in our faith and values. Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” commentary series, Be Decisive has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe shares the need for decisive believers in a lukewarm culture.

Running Through the Bible
Not sure how the Bible fits together? Abraham and Moses? The Exodus and the Exile? Confused over kings and prophets? Old Testament, New Testament? We’ll start at zero, and assume nothing. We’re running through the Bible in only 42 pages, and we won’t be travelling alone. There’s a red cord running with us, starting in Genesis where we begin our journey, through to Revelation at the end. The red cord binds the Bible together. It’s God’s rescue plan for the people he created, giving us a way out of the mess we’ve made of our lives through the free will he has given us. A friend who had just finished reading the whole Old Testament for the first time, told me, “It was written with God’s tears.” Indeed it was. My friend could have added, “The New Testament was written with blood – the blood of Jesus.”
