How does Jesus Christ actually feel about his people amid all their sins and failures?
This book draws us to Matthew 11, where Jesus describes himself as "gentle and lowly in heart," longing for his people to find rest in him. The gospel flows from God's deepest heart for his people, a heart of tender love for the sinful and suffering. This book takes readers into the depths of Christ's very heart for sinners, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of who Christ is and encouraging readers with the affections of Christ for his people. - Publisher
"I have read no book that more carefully, thoroughly, and tenderly displays Christ's heart."

Why is it so hard to trust God sometimes?
We say we trust Him with our mouths, but often not with our lives. We live like God can't be trusted. Like He doesn't actually want what is best for us. Like He is just another person who, as Eve assumed in the Garden all those years ago, might hold out on us.
Yet, if God is holy, then He can't sin. If God can't sin, then He can't sin against you. If He can't sin against you, shouldn't that make Him the most trustworthy being there is?
As it turns out, God being "holier than thou" is actually the best news in the world, and it's the key to trusting Him. - Publisher
What would it look like to genuinely love God with our head AND our heart?
To have a faith marked by right thinking AND right feeling? To know God deeply AND worship him passionately? Too often, Christians act as though these things are at odds with one another. But what if God intends for us to possess a Christianity that is radically committed to biblical truth, in a way that did not diminish the life of the heart, but actually intensified it?
Adam Ramsey invites us to engage both our minds and our emotions in our walk with God as we gaze at him until our hearts sing. If you yearn for God but desire a clearer biblical picture of this God whom you love, or if you have been walking with God for a while now, but your experience of him has become settled or dry, then this book is for you. - Publisher
Christian ministries rightly desire to see more and more people following the Lord Jesus as his faithful disciples. And that's why good leadership matters: good leaders multiply disciple-making ministry.
In his first book, Wisdom in Leadership, Craig Hamilton provided a treasure trove of helpful wisdom for leaders on a multitude of topics. Now, in Wisdom in Leadership Development, he sets out a leadership pipeline and framework that will help any ministry - big or small - to better understand the various layers of leadership required.
This book is a must for all ministry leaders. - Publisher
Beginning with the historical Jesus and his disciples through to the present day, Greg Sheridan has written an impassioned, informed and utterly compelling case for the truth and importance of Christianity in our lives.
"Who could have predicted that one of Australia's most seasoned journalists would emerge as one of the country's most compelling public Christians!"

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge." - Proverbs 1:7
Fear is one of the strongest human emotions - and one that often baffles Christians. In the Bible the picture can seem equally confusing: Is fear a good thing or a bad thing? And what does it mean to "fear the Lord"?
In Rejoice and Tremble, Michael Reeves clears the clouds of confusion and shows that the fear of the Lord is not a negative thing at all, but an intensely delighted wondering at God, our Creator and Redeemer. - Publisher
