    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – Introduction

    This book is not a commentary on Ecclesiastes. It may look that way, and it may be arranged that way, but it is something else entirely.

    SUCCESS   It All Begins with God   Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3   The word commit basically means “to roll.” It was used of rolling large rocks over the mouth of a cave (Joshua 10:18), of garments rolled in blood (Isaiah 9:5), of the sky […]

    Ebook: In His Steps

    No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

    “Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

    “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
