A Marriage Book with a Difference!
A Revolutionary Message: "I've been married 35 years and have not heard this taught."
A Simple Message: A wife has one driving need -- to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need -- to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy.
When either of these needs isn't met, things get crazy. Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly,easily and biblically. A Message That Works:
Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other.
What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect. Discover the Single Greatest Secret to a Successful Marriage.
Psychological studies affirm it, and the Bible has been saying it for ages. Cracking the communication code between husband and wife involves understanding one thing: that unconditional respect is as powerful for him as unconditional love is for her. It's the secret to marriage that every couple seeks, and yet few couples ever find.
Today, you and your mate can start fresh with the ground-breaking guidance that Dr. Emerson Eggerichs provides in this book. His revolutionary message, featured on Focus on the Family, is for anyone: in marital crisis...wanting to stay happilymarried...who's feeling lonely. It's for engaged couples...victims of affairs...pastors and counselors seeking material that can save a marriage.
Using Dr. Eggerich's breakthrough techniques, couples nationwide are achieving abrand-new level of intimacy and learning how to:
- stop the Crazy Cycle of conflict
- initiate the Energizing Cycle of change
- enjoy the Rewarded Cycle of new passion
Bestselling author Timothy Keller and legal scholar John Inazu bring together a thrilling range of artists, thinkers, and leaders to provide a guide to faithful living in a pluralistic, fractured world.

Timothy Keller and John Inazu bring together illuminating stories--their own and from others--to answer this vital question. Uncommon Ground gathers an array of perspectives from people thinking deeply and working daily to live with humility, patience, and tolerance in our time. Contributors include:
- Tish Harrison Warren
- Kristen Deede Johnson
- Claude Richard Alexander
- Shirley Hoogstra
- Sara Groves
- Rudy Carrasco
- Trillia Newbell
- Tom Lin
- Warren Kinghorn
Providing varied and enlightening approaches to reaching faithfully across deep and often painful differences, Uncommon Ground shows us how live with confidence, joy, and hope in a complex and fragmented age.
A book for anyone who cares deeply about the future of the church.
Once upon a time there was a version of our faith that was practically . . . irresistible. But that was then. Today we preach, teach, write, and communicate as if nothing has changed. As if "The Bible says it," still settles it.
It's time to hit pause on much of what we're doing and consider the faith modeled by our first-century brothers and sisters who had no official Bible, no status, and humanly speaking, little chance of survival.
What did they know that we don't?
What made their faith so compelling, so defensible, so irresistible?
Buckle up . . . you're about to find out. More importantly, Andy will invite you to embrace the version of faith that, against all odds, initiated a chain of events resulting in the most significant and extensive cultural transformation the world has ever seen. A version we must embrace if we are to be salt and light in an increasingly savorless and dark world.
This expanded, softcover edition includes a helpful Q&A where Andy answers several common--and controversial--questions including:
- What is the role of Scripture in the Christian life?
- How should we use the Old Testament in discipleship?
- How do you avoid "burying the lead" in evangelism?
- What are the differences between the Old and New Covenants?
- Why should we make love the focus of our faith?
Andy also shares thoughts on how to make the New Covenant the basis of your preaching and some ideas on how to begin in sharing your faith with others. This bonus material is a helpful complement to the message of Irresistible and useful in conversations and discussions about the book.
"More than any other book I've read in years, Irresistible has stretched my view of Scripture. I can't hear or read a passage from the Old or New Testaments without thinking about Andy's provocative insights. If you and I take this book seriously, our lives and our churches will never be the same."--Kara Powell, PhD, executive director of the Fuller Youth Institute and coauthor of Growing Young
"Irresistible is like a once-in-a-generation shot across the bow. Andy Stanley takes a lifetime of accumulated insight and wisdom about the Christian faith, history, and why the church isn't connecting with our current culture, and combines them together in a masterpiece work."--Carey Nieuwhof, author and founding pastor, Connexus Church
"Warning: This book will set you and your ministry back--back to the first century and the approach to advancing the gospel modeled by Jesus and the apostles. Andy reminds us that the resurrection was at the center of the first-century apologetic. Then he challenges twenty-first century believers to reclaim it as the center of ours as well. I agree with Andy--this approach changed the world once. I'm convinced it could do so again. Read and apply now "--Frank Turek, Christian author, public speaker, and radio host
"This book challenged me to rethink my thoughts about the Old Testament, discuss with fellow believers what I was learning, do more connecting and less correcting of others, and be salt and light, making things better and brighter. I love how Andy loves people . . . ALL of them."--John Maxwell, author of The 360 Degree Leader
"It's time for the church to rethink how it presents a timeless gospel to this generation. In Irresistible, Andy Stanley challenges us to make sure we handle the Scriptures with the kind of integrity that compels everyone to seriously consider following Jesus. Any Christian who reads this book will suddenly find themselves embracing the mission of Jesus with a new passion."--Reggie Joiner, author; founder and CEO of Orange
"Andy Stanley takes you on a historic journ
Learn to find and play the role God wants most for you to play, not the ones you feel pressured into playing for the sake of others or even our sense of accomplishment and worth.
Most of us spend a lot of our lives figuring out when to say yes and when to say no. How to manage our time, reduce stress, do our best for our families, find a little space for "me." But we don't find space for our souls until we learn to step past the yes and no of daily decisions and seek a third option: the best yes.
The Best Yes is the choice that shapes all our other choices. (And our choices determine the direction of our lives.) It's what allows us to play our necessary parts in God's plan, to spend our energy and focus our passion on the assignments that really are ours. It allows us to be there for the moments we shouldn't miss, pursue the calling our souls pulse to fulfill, give the love we were born to offer.
How do we learn to say that best yes? It requires honesty, imagination, attention, trust, humility and practice--lots of practice. And wisdom. The best yes is really all about wisdom--learning to make truly wise decisons. And that's the heart of this book.
"I want us to become powerfully effective decision makers," writes Lysa Terkeurst. "Because then we will live powerfully effective lives. And spend our souls doing powerfully effective work to the glory of God."
With her signature mix of transparency, Scripture-laced insight, and "been there" humor, she suggests usable strategies for choosing wisely and encourages us all to shout and whisper our own best yes to life, day by decision-making day.
Ann Voskamp's story is not happily ever after. As a child, her sister was crushed under a truck in front of her and her mother. Consequently, her mother checked herself into a psychiatric hospital and her father couldn't find God. As an adult, she stood beside her brother-in-law as he buried his first two sons. Voskamp is a wife and mother who does not grin through the pain but battles to believe that in God is joy, and that there are as many gifts amid the grittiness of life as in the moments of celebration.
In One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, Ann strives to find the meaning of life and fully embrace the surprising truth from the final scenes of Jesus' earthly life. In the hours before Jesus' execution, he took bread and gave thanks. This fresh, heart-wrenching book unveils the long forgotten wonder that through the imitation of Christ's thankfulness, we too can experience a life of joy.
With startling lyrical power, Voskamp writes the answers to universal questions:
The laundry keeps piling up, dishes never end, kids fight and people die. But regardless of circumstances, the dare of the "gift list" shows Voskamp a way to live even through the dullness and hurts of life. Through the aches and triumphs, she finally sees what she's been missing, something that so many women can't seem to find in their everyday lives. Ideal for personal spiritual growth or Bible study groups, included within One Thousand Gifts are study questions to provoke additional thought and discussion.
With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: What if your calling puts you--and your family--in the crosshairs?
Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she's pregnant. But Daud can't shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.
Hana is helping her boss plan a huge Middle East summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather by a Soviet colonel at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he needs Hana's knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.
Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can't resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.
Bestselling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home--and how faith forms the identity of both--in this breathtaking sequel to Chosen People.
