Each stage of life brings its own set of spiritual, emotional, relational challenges. It has always been that way. Particulars change but basic problems and the principles and resources for their relief do not. Every volume in this series addresses one common issue. It does so by discovery learning. This avoids causing anyone to feel put down and allows a reader (or better yet, a small group) to discover the answers that God provides.
The four Vitality books are 8.5 x 11" in size, 16pp, with 7 two-page lessons. The first six lessons summarize a a biblical incident to illustrate a principle that can be used today. The last lesson ties it together, showing that God's help relieves distress. Each lesson states the biblical text, has a synopsis of an incident, prints 2 or 3 instructive verses, poses several "Think Abouts" (questions that evoke thought), and closes with a "Bottom Line" (a summary scripture).
One copy of four books in the Vitality Bible Study Series: (1) Be Strong When Storms Come; (2) Never Too Young, Never Too Old; (3) God of Hope, God of Help; and (4) Defeat Your Own Goliaths. See full descriptions elsewhere.
For example, Never Too Young, Never Too Old, is about a need that is built in to each of us--the need to be productive (useful). Biblical examples show that there is a way for each of us to be productive in God's kingdom--to be a blessing to oneself as well as to others.
It has often been said that "Old age is not for sissies." The truth in this is that aging brings a lot of changes, and change--even good change--is stressful. Add to that loss of loved ones, illness, physical weakness, and for many, financial uncertainty. These aging-related concerns are on top of the apprehensions we all carry as we live in a sin-broken world. Bad stuff does happen to good people, and we worry about it.
This simple yet powerful book describes how God protected and encouraged six people during times of fear. It offers assurance by examples and biblical principles.
This is almost ready to go to the printer and should be available by Dec 10.
Everyone I know has had at least one time when it all seemed hopeless. And I do mean that it allseemed HOPELESS! Remember? It happened to some, if not most, of our favorite Bible characters. This book in the Vitality series shows how God came through for them, and how we can depend on him to come through for us.
We all have been up against obstacles wa-a-ay bigger than ourselves. Maybe it wasn't nine-foot Goliath shaking a sword at us and laughing, but it seemed like it. The unknowns of aging can seem that way. This volume shows how God was present when Paul, Elijah, Daniel, Peter, and David dealt with intimidating situations. They teach us how to rely on God better than we have. Click "view images" for a sample of what's inside.
Discover the great joy and transforming power of praying in the way the Bible teaches. After Diana and I looked at more than 150 books about prayer we decided that the best instruction comes from the Bible itself! There you will find six types of content, six topics we might say, that God wants to hear us discuss with him on a regular basis. This quick guide is based on our more detailed books Strong Prayer books shown elsewhere in this section. It is written with residents in long-term care in mind. It offers hope and guidance as God helps the reader to pray as He desires to hear us pray.
What this book teaches is exciting, so we gave it a bold, vivid look. It is 8 1/2 x 11, 22 pages, in large print and bright colors, with "scrapbook pages" for prayer lists, to record God's answers, and to write (or tape in) new or favorite prayers and memories. It becomes a treasure of God's love. Printed on very heavy (14 point) glossy stock for bright colors and enduring value.
This, the "women's version" of Strong Prayer Strong Man, is by Diana Walters. It has identical features page by page as Strong Prayer, Strong Man but the prayers and illustrations are given with a woman’s special touch. The combination of books is ideal for couples to use together.
This is a valuable resource for anyone leading a group (or individual) through Talking With God. It has 40 methods that will help anyone, young or old, to pray more often and to include each of the elements God wants to hear from us. He has given us guidelines about what to include--not a formula or a prescribed ritual, but guidelines. These are offered in the Bible both by direct instruction and by example. It is easier--and far better--to pray God's way than to muddle along in confusion.
