|PRAYER: The Church's Great Need|
Jesse Hamilton, with Foreword by Steven J. Lawson
Many books have been written on prayer - probably as many as on any aspect of Christian living. So why should you read this one? Because it will challenge you to higher aspirations in prayer, yet in practical and achievable ways.
Some books make prayer far too complex and elevate the practice of prayer to nearly unachievable standards that even the most saintly believer could scarcely reach. Others claim that prayer is so simple, one would wonder why any of us find it difficult at all or even need to be taught a thing about it. Just go to God and talk, right? This book falls for neither of these nonsensical approaches.
Jesse Hamilton writes as a modern-day E.M. Bounds, whose many books on prayer compelled a generation of 19th century Christians around the world to their knees. Any young Christian or new believer can here learn the basics of how to pray, while even the most aged and mature believer will find his soul again challenged in these words to seek the face of God with new fervency.
"I am glad to commend to you this book by Jesse Hamilton on the critical role of prayer in the life of the believer. Here is a book that you will find to be theologically astute, soul-searching, and personally-challenging. What is more, every page is faith-building, heart-enlarging, and hope-inspiring. Without question, this work will be a strong encouragement to come boldly before God's throne in prayer." - Steven J. Lawson

|MIGHTY MEN: |
The Starter's Guide to Leading Your Family
Christian men often find the task of family leadership so daunting, we withdraw from it into distant uninvolvement - leaving the wife and children with the impression that we don't care enough to lead, or don't want to, when the heart of the problem often is, we're intimidated by our lack of possessing the basic tools.
Many Christian men of today's era had little or no training for the role we now find ourselves in! This book provides a "starter kit" for men reluctant to take the reins of spiritual leadership in their homes, and shows the path to imitating Christ in loving, servant headship to those family members who look to us!
Great tool to use with a men's study group.

|OF KNIGHTS AND FAIR MAIDENS|
Is True Romance Possible in the 21st Century?
Jeff & Danielle Myers
An old favorite, back in print in a new hardcover edition! This was one of our most requested Out of Print books for years - and now available again!
Jeff and Danielle were determined to do things differently. So, before the era of "True Love Waits" or the writing of I Kissed Dating Goodbye, they interviewed married couples to discover the keys to a successful courtship. They applied these principles in their own relationship and later, wrote this humorous, heart-warming book. 15 years later, they have re-released an updated version of this classic, which has given tens of thousands of young couples honest and straightforward counsel about the best way to prepare for marriage.
"Jeff and Danielle prove that God's plan for relationships is not out of date or old-fashioned - it's for the adventurous, courageous and most importantly, romantic Christian single who wants God's best in relationships and marriage." -- Joshua Harris, Senior Pastor, Covenant Life Church, Gaithersburg, MD and author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye and Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship.

|TOO WISE to be Mistaken,|
TOO GOOD to be Unkind
In Too Wise to be Mistaken, Too Good to Be Unkind, you will join David, Cathy, and Drew Steere on their difficult, yet remarkable journey into the complex world of autism.

|RAISING MAIDENS OF VIRTUE|
A Study of Feminine Loveliness for Mothers and Daughters
At a special pre-publication price, for the Revised and Expanded Edition! Contains new, updated content and additional chapters. We anticipate copies being ready to ship in late November or the first week of December, at the latest.
Subtitled A Study of Feminine Loveliness for Mothers and Daughters
Now, in its 7th printing, this revised and expanded edition of Stacy McDonald's popular Bible study for mothers and daughters reflects a mature and seasoned approach to mentoring young women. With many of the original chapters polished and revised, and several new chapters added, readers will find this resource refreshing and even more useful than before.
Godly women are not born, but raised. Raising Maidens of Virtue is a storehouse of tools for mothers to employ to raise up a daughter whose life will honor God. Written in an engaging style, Stacy McDonald conveys the truth through stories, conversations, illustrations, and memory-making projects, to warmly encourage girls to think Biblically about themselves and their world. Offers useful counsels on modesty, feminine beauty, guarding the tongue, idleness, sibling relationships, honoring parents, contentment and more.
"Young ladies entrenched in our modern society are in a desperate situation. So many have lost the vision for beautiful, rewarding femininity and womanhood. Raising Maidens of Virtue helps restore that vision and guide our girls along the path to godly, joyous maidenhood. In her delightful book, Stacy McDonald has given a helpful hand to mother and daughter alike, offering hope and practical solutions for those of us desiring that wonderful role of women of virute." -- Mrs. Beall Phillips (wife of Doug Phillips)
"Godly women are not born, but raised. Stacy McDonald has, in this work, equipped parents to be about the business of raising up rubies, or rather, that which is more precious still: our daughters. She is a faithful guide, for she is a godly example." -- Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
"In the face of our culture's shameless enticement of young women to view their identity and worth only in terms of their sexuality, Stacy McDonald passionately challenges mothers and daughters together to return to a pure and gracious femininity for the God who made us uniquely for His glory" -- Mrs. Tracy Klicka (wife of Chris Klicka, Sr. Counsel, HSLDA - Home School Legal Defense Assoc.)
"Raising Maidens of Virtue is a treasure-house full of gems of biblical wisdom. Delivered with Stacy McDonald's unique blend of wit, wisdom, and warmth, her years of experience lend credibility to a book chock-full of biblical advice. This unique mother-daughter relationship builder explores sensitive areas in the realm of princess-rearing such as how to develop inward beauty, spiritual sensitivities, and outward behavior that is both pleasing to God and a witness to others of active grace in the heart. It is easy to see why this book has taken a place of prominence in the lives of thousands of mothers and their daughters, and this revised and expanded edition is even more helpful! I highly recommend this book as a valuable tool for Christian mothers and their daughters." -- Becky Morecraft
