Many Christians often do not connect their current life struggles to a failure to obey one or all of the Ten Commandments. Pastor Colin Smith, author of Unlock the Bible in 30 Days and the Unlocking the Bible Story series, here presents a powerful argument that these ancient commands are not only relevant to modern life, but also help us gain a better understanding of how to overcome and prevent many of the battles we face.

The Beatitudes are not telling you how to become a Christian—they tell you what a true Christian looks like. Everyone wants to be blessed. We want to be blessed in life, blessed in death, and blessed in eternity. In the Beatitudes, the Son of God tells us about the life that is blessed and about the people who are blessed. But Jesus does more than just describe a blessed life, He gives us a way to actually pursue it. If you want to make strides in overcoming sin, growing in godliness, abounding in good works, and enjoying intimacy with the Lord, this book is for you. And if you have lost hope that any of these things are possible, this book is especially for you. You can make progress, starting today.

For thousands of years, Cross has wandered the earth, a mortal soul trapped in the undying body left behind by Christ. He’s been a thief, a con man, a soldier and a drunkard. He’s fought as a slave in the Colosseum and as a knight at King Arthur’s side. But now he must play the part of reluctant hero, as an angel comes to him for help finding the Mona Lisa—the real Mona Lisa that inspired the painting. Cross’s quest takes him into a secret world within our own, populated by characters just as strange and wondrous as he is: gorgons and dead gods hidden away in museums; faeries that live in countryside pubs, trapping and enslaving unwary travellers; and super-rich collectors who trade magical artifacts among themselves. He’s haunted by memories of Penelope, the only woman he truly loved, and he wants to avenge her death at the hands of his ancient enemy, Judas, a forgotten god from an ancient time. The angel promises to deliver Judas to Cross, but nothing is ever what it seems when Judas is involved, and when a group of renegade angels looking for a new holy war show up, things truly go to hell.

The most closely Guarded treasure on Earth. An explosive ancient secret. A breakneck journey into the heart of the Vatican. In a small, heavily fortified room just north of the Sistine Chapel, a master thief is about to strike. All he needs is an instant–to steal the most important treasure in the Vatican museum: two antique keys–one gold, one silver–that protect the secret of salvation…. But a surprise awaits Michael St. Pierre deep inside the Vatican, an ancient secret so explosive, it sends him running for his life—from the streets of Rome to a small stone church in Israel—with two stolen keys and a terrible realization: the consequences of his desperate, brazen act are far greater than he could ever have imagined. For the treasure he has uncovered—the gleaming prize buried within the most clandestine structure on earth—is about to bring him face-to-face with an enemy more shocking, frightening, and insidious than anyone can guess....

Personal finances can be an area of people's lives that, if not handled well, can cause much stress and hardship to individuals and their families. It is an area that it is easy to get wrong and can be very daunting and complex. Christians are not exempt from these issues. As Christians, we fail to please God if we are less than a faithful steward of all that he has entrusted to us. This includes our dealings with money and finance. If we, as Christians, are to set an example to the world, and be "salt and light" in our secular society, we need to demonstrate good stewardship and behaviours in every area of our life - including the way in which we handle our personal finances. As Jesus says "If then you have not been faithful in handling worldly wealth, how can you be trusted with true wealth" (Luke 16:11). This, therefore, is a book about personal finances that is practical rather than academic - a book that ordinary Christians can read and understand and that unravels some of the 'mystique' concerned in this area. It also shows how the Bible provides us with practical teaching and guidance. This book will help Christians (and others) with some general guidance and principles that, if followed, will help you keep your personal finances under control. It will also help Christians understand their special responsibilities in the area of personal finances and what Holy Scripture has to say and teach us - for how we handle and deal with our personal finances is a major part of the day-to-day practical outliving of our faith. To that end this book deals with subjects such as budgeting, debt, retirement planning, investing, tithing, shares, gambling, life insurance, what to do with material blessings and being responsible with money.

Determined to help and to stay true to the boy she's always loved, Kendall keeps up the search--and stumbles upon some frightening local history.

Lisa McMann has done it again—this book is unputdownable!” --Alyson Noël, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Immortals series. "A brilliant, engaging, scary piece of fiction. Every word had me sliding closer to the edge of my seat and gripping the cover tighter and tighter. There are books in the world that make you question your reality and the things that go bump in the night--this is one of them." --Heather Brewer, New York Times bestselling author of the Chronicles of Vladmir Tod series

Even better, the gospel story gives life. We are saved and our children are saved as we review the story of the gospel.

We all struggle, and we all need help to stay on course. Old Story New makes it easy for parents to stay on the life-giving course of sharing the gospel with their family.

Simple discussion questions (and answers!!) for each day’s devotion help children understand and remember Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and the birth of the Christian church. Old Story New is a family devotional program designed to explain God’s plan of salvation through the New Testament and is suitable for children from preschool through high school.

They say that the Thorn of Camorr can beat anyone in a fight. They say he steals from the rich and gives to the poor. They say he's part man, part myth, and mostly street-corner rumor. And they are wrong on every count. Only averagely tall, slender, and god-awful with a sword, Locke Lamora is the fabled Thorn, and the greatest weapons at his disposal are his wit and cunning. He steals from the rich - they're the only ones worth stealing from - but the poor can go steal for themselves. What Locke cons, wheedles and tricks into his possession is strictly for him and his band of fellow con-artists and thieves: the Gentleman Bastards. Together their domain is the city of Camorr. Built of Elderglass by a race no-one remembers, it's a city of shifting revels, filthy canals, baroque palaces and crowded cemeteries. Home to Dons, merchants, soldiers, beggars, cripples, and feral children. And to Capa Barsavi, the criminal mastermind who runs the city. But there are whispers of a challenge to the Capa's power. A challenge from a man no one has ever seen, a man no blade can touch. The Grey King is coming. A man would be well advised not to be caught between Capa Barsavi and The Grey King. Even such a master of the sword as the Thorn of Camorr. As for Locke Lamora ...
