Books Description:

Touring on a motorcycle has never been more popular than it is today, but with more and more people hitting the open road, a growing number are doing so without the proper skills and information they need to survive the ordeal. Far too often the trip of a lifetime turns into an unmitigated disaster, leading to expensive breakdowns, arrests, lost wages, broken limbs, death, and even, on more than one occasion, divorce. Most people who travel aboard motorcycles have learned these lessons the hard way, if they’ve survived long enough, but now readers of the Motorcycle Touring Bible can learn an easier way; they can learn from author Fred Rau’s mistakes rather than through the school of hard knocks.

Books Description:

Your identity can be summed up in the management of three critical relationships: your relationship with God, your relationship with you, and your relationship with others. Through these relationships we learn, develop, and cement our habits and personalities. Between You, God, and Me explores each of these relationships from a spiritual perspective, using practical knowledge to expose the traps often used to destroy unity of mind, body, and spirit. Each lesson will take you on a journey in discovering the depth and beauty of Gods love, the necessity of self-love, and your role in expressing Gods love toward your family, friends, and colleagues. This is not your typical devotional! Each lesson will arouse your emotions, challenge your beliefs, and force you to acknowledge thought patterns and behaviors that prevent you from living a life of purpose. Using biblical and scientific evidence, you will discover Gods plan and purpose for your life; recognize attitudes that prevent you from succeeding in your goals, and identify tools to help you create a joyful, stress-free, existence. For a few minutes each day, Eve will accompany you as you uncover Gods love while preparing you to live a life of liberty, harmony, and peace. Between You, God, and Me is a powerful devotional tool intended to help you celebrate your intimate relationships and foster positive change within your life.

Books Description:

Good Girls, Bad Girls of the New Testament takes readers on a powerful journey through the vast landscape of Roman-occupied Judea during the first century and the genesis of Christianity. This landscape serves as the backdrop for twelve amazing stories of women whose paths intersect, either by providence or design, with the paths of Jesus or Paul. Some of these women are familiar, such as Mary, the mother of Jesus, while others, like the wife of the infamous Pontius Pilate, are lesser known. Whether she is popular or obscure, good or bad, each woman’s story is an important part of the overall Christian narrative. Good Girls, Bad Girls of the New Testament invites readers to take a more nuanced look at twelve stories that feature women, to explore their lives more deeply in historical context, and to understand the real story that includes both men and women. The book goes beyond simply telling the story of a particular biblical woman to challenge readers to explore the enduring lessons the ancient writers sought to impart. These timeless lessons are as important for us today as they were thousands of years ago.

Books Description:

While growing up I struggled immensely with my sexuality and faith. I grew up in church, went to a Christian university, but desired a homosexual lifestyle; I grew up as a Christian but lived divided in my heart. I walked away from God for years because I wanted what felt good and right to me. I was searching for satisfaction in the desires of my heart and it wasn’t until I hit rock bottom that I turned fully to God to fulfill that desire. When God asked me why I wasn’t turning to Him as my full source of satisfaction, I told Him, “Trust me, I’ve got this.” It was absurd and arrogant, but a profound insight into the true reality of where my soul stood. I wanted love and acceptance, but the gratification that these things brought was never enough to appease my thirsting soul. While I was running from God, He never stopped pursuing me. He just wanted my heart. He wanted to show me that He was everything I was looking for and more. God doesn’t stop caring for us and will always be there when we realize this world isn’t enough.

Because God Is Love: Understanding the Love of God and Why It Is the Only Path to Life

Books Description:

The only path to life (not mere survival) for a human being is the love of God. But what is love? There are many definitions of this short word and even more opinions about its meaning. There are also those who say that there are different types of love. However, Scripture simply states that God is Love and that love comes from God; so why is there such confusion about love? Part I of "Because God Is Love" exposes the passionate and alluring - yet deceptive - reasons behind this confusion of meaning; brings forth the simple truth about love in its human facet; and shows how everything else that has been called "love" is nothing other than a delusion that is akin to idolatry, and as such it is destructive and completely removed from the true love of the Lord our God: The only power that redeems, fulfills and provides meaning to the existence of those who wholeheartedly love Him.
