Better: How Jesus Satisfies the Search for MeaningTim Chaddick, Craig Borlase  
More Details

“What does it take to find satisfaction? Will I ever find something in life that’s better than this?” Most people live a life they never would have planned. The good news is that coming to the end of their expectations means they’re on the brink of great wisdom, peace, and joy. That’s what the ancient author of Ecclesiastes helps us figure out—it is quite possible to face detours and dead-ends in life and still find more satisfaction than you ever could have imagined.  Better explores the mysteries, scandalous lines, and deep truths of Ecclesiastes and applies them to life today. Better seeks to show how the questions of the heart find their answer in the person of Jesus. Here you will find a vision of life that is neither naive nor cynical, but realistic and hopeful. Because the truth is, when God answers the questions, you finally realize what is better.

Just Walk Across the Room Participant's Guide with DVD: Four Sessions on Simple Steps Pointing People to FaithBill Hybels  
More Details

In this four-session small group bible study, Just Walk Across the Room, author and pastor Bill Hybels equips you and your small group with simple, practical ways to share your spiritual journey.

In it, Hybels shares his firm conviction is that the highest value in personal evangelism is being attuned to and cooperative with the promptings of the Holy Spirit. This means playing only the role one is intended to play—walking when the Spirit says to walk, talking when the Spirit says to talk, and falling silent when the Spirit suggests that you've already said enough.

According to Hybels, the goal for every Christian is to reflect Christ's love and follow his example by stepping outside one’s circle of comfort and extending a hand of care, compassion, and inclusiveness to people living far from God.

The DVD includes four video sessions that expand on the teaching from Hybels’ book of the same name, as well as personal testimonies of lives transformed by the Holy Spirit. Also included are all the sermon and promotional materials needed for churches to successfully launch and sustain a four-week whole church campaign.

More Details
