HE WHO SPOKE and wrote this message will be greatly disappointed if it does not lead many to the Lord Jesus. It is sent forth in childlike dependence upon the power of God the Holy Ghost, to use it in the conversion of millions, if so He pleases. No doubt many poor men and women will take up this little volume, and the Lord will visit them with grace. To answer this end, the very plainest language has been chosen, and many homely expressions have been used. But if those of wealth and rank should glance at this book, the Holy Ghost can impress them also; since that which can be understood by the unlettered is none the less attractive to the instructed. Oh that some might read it who will become great winners of souls! Who knows how many will find their way to peace by what they read here? A more important question to you, dear reader, is this--Will you be one of them? A certain man placed a fountain by the wayside, and he hung up a cup near to it by a little chain. He was told some time after that a great art-critic had found much fault with its design. "But," said he, "do many thirsty persons drink at it?" Then they told him that thousands of poor people, men, women, and children, slaked their thirst at this fountain; and he smiled and said, that he was little troubled by the critic's observation, only he hoped that on some sultry summer's day the critic himself might fill the cup, and he refreshed, and praise the name of the Lord. Here is my fountain, and here is my cup: find fault if you please; but do drink of the water of life. I only care for this. I had rather bless the soul of the poorest crossing-sweeper, or rag-gatherer, than please a prince of the blood, and fail to convert him to God. Reader, do you mean business in reading these pages? If so, we are agreed at the outset; but nothing short of your finding Christ and Heaven is the business aimed at here. Oh that we may seek this together! I do so by dedicating this little book with prayer. Will not you join me by looking up to God, and asking Him to bless you while you read? Providence has put these pages in your way, you have a little spare time in which to read them, and you feel willing to give your attention to them. These are good signs. Who knows but the set time of blessing is come for you? At any rate, "The Holy Ghost saith, Today, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts."

"…it is not the object of this book to ask anything of you, but to tell you that salvation is all of grace, which means, free, gratis, for nothing." C.H. Spurgeon is best known for his reasonalble and rational sermons and teachings. He preached to thousands in England during the 1800s; many times in contradiction to the established church beliefs. All of Grace insights include: The salvation of God is for those who do not deserve it. Faith is the work of God's grace in us. Forgiveness leads to repentance. If you look to Christ for your beginnings, beware of looking to yourself for your endings. The life of your soul lies in faith; its health lies in love. Common and vivid illustrations such as limpets at the seaside, a cup by the fountain, and fighting a swarm of flies with a sword characterizes the simple yet eternal truths of the gospel as shared by C.H. Spurgeon, a Reformed Baptist preacher. Always humbly directing the focus on the God of all grace, the author beckons his readers to accept salvation as the free and for nothing promise from a faithful heavenly Father of love.

David Winkler wächst in Anchorage, Alaska, auf, ein stiller Junge mit einer Vorliebe für Schnee und die Schönheit der Eiskristalle. Manchmal kann er Ereignisse sehen, bevor sie eintreten werden – ein Mann mit einer Hutschachtel wird von einem Bus angefahren werden, er wird sich in eine Frau in einem Supermarkt verlieben. Als David davon träumt, daß seine neugeborene Tochter in einer Flut ums Leben kommt, während er versucht sie zu retten, flieht er panisch aus Cleveland, wo die Familie inzwischen lebt. Kann er so den Lauf der Dinge ändern? Mittellos, allein und ohne Gewißheit, ob seine Tochter überlebt hat – der Ohio ist tatsächlich in Cleveland über die Ufer getreten –, wohnt Winkler auf einer karibischen Insel bei einem Ehepaar mit einer Tochter, die sich um ihn kümmern. Schließlich ist es die Tochter, die ihn in die Welt zurückholt, um nach den Menschen zu suchen, die er verlassen hat. 25 Jahre nach seiner Flucht kehrt Winkler zurück nach Amerika. Anthony Doerr ist nicht nur ein Autor mit einer meisterhaften Beobachtungsgabe für Menschen und ihre Empfindungen und mit einem ungewöhnlichen Mitgefühl für die menschliche Verletzlichkeit. Seine Beschreibungen der Natur, der Landschaft, des Wassers, der Gerüche und Farben sind von einer großen Magie und überwältigenden Schönheit. Nach dem preisgekrönten Erzählungsband «Der Muschelsammler» beweist Anthony Doerr mit seinem ersten Roman, daß er ein herausragendes literarisches Talent besitzt.

We all make choices based on the information we have, when this information is Truth that cannot be denied we can be bold in our choice, as we know it is right.

This book was written out of a desire to share with others who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease what I have experienced as Grace’s caregiver and friend. I wanted to capture the emotions, the expected and unexpected issues, the painful times as well as the humorous and loving moments that Grace and I have shared as a result of this disease. This is not meant to be a handbook for dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, but I hope that by sharing my feelings and experiences, readers may recognize that they are not alone on this particular journey.

In this collection of sermons, Dr. Albert Walsh, after more than three decades of pastoral ministry, presents the gospel message as the Christ-centered proclamation of hope for all those who sojourn along the path of life.

This collection of sermons offers the reader a word of genuine hope in times of trial, struggle, and in the face of the innumerable sufferings--both small and great--we so often experience in life.

Perhaps you’ve had one of those moments when everything, quite unexpectedly, simply falls into place; or, when you’ve been puzzling over an impossible question and—pow!—the answer suddenly arises, seemingly out of nowhere. These and other such experiences are not caused by our efforts. They are moments of grace, the gift dimension of life. Grace is generally associated with religion, but, as Dave Richo shows, you don’t need to be religious to notice—and benefit from—this help from outside yourself that’s being offered to you in every moment. Dave provides teachings and helpful practices that show us how to open our eyes to the sources of grace everywhere and in everyone. When we open ourselves to grace, we begin to see it work wonders in our lives—and we become conduits of its power to others.

For 2000 years, most Christians have participated in the ritual of baptism. Yet for many people today, whether they are Christian or otherwise, baptism remains a mystery. What does it mean? Why do many Christians baptize their young children while others do not? Why do some fully immerse in water while others simply sprinkle it upon the head? Most importantly, how does the act of baptism lavish the grace of God upon us, and how is its symbol significant for those who walk the way of Jesus? Consider this work to be an exploration of these questions.

How One Woman's Brokenness Brought Healing and Hope to Child Survivors of War

A middle-class woman in rural America and war-affected children in Africa find common ground in their journeys from brokenness to redemption. Author and psychologist Bethany Haley Williams shares how her own emotional healing led her into treacherous war zones, where she provides care to former child soldiers and young girls used as sex slaves. Faced with her own battle with shame and a rocky journey toward healing, Bethany founded Exile International, a nonprofit that implements art/expressive therapy and long-term, rehabilitative care to restore and empower war-affected children—including children rescued from Joseph Kony’s LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army). One of those rescued young men, Solomon, was abducted at the age of ten after being forced to watch LRA soldiers maim and murder his father and grandfather. His younger siblings were left behind, and his mother was instructed to “raise them well…for one day we’ll return to take them too.” Solomon is one of hundreds of thousands of boys and girls who have had their innocence stolen and are forced to do the unthinkable on a daily basis. But their horrific experiences are just the beginning. The real story is what happens after. Once these children learn to face their pasts, they are given hope for a future and a vision for changing the fabric of their countries by becoming leaders for peace and advocates of the power of forgiveness.
