Giants plague today's church and while they may not wield spears and shields, they are fearsome, causing far too many of God's children to stumble in their walks. In Slaying the Giants in Your Life, Dr. David Jeremiah challenges us to stand valiantly against the giants that seek to terrorize today's believers. Dr. Jeremiah weaves gripping real-life stories of contemporary giant slayers who came face-to-face with their own Goliaths: temptation, doubt, procrastination, and jealousy. In each, you will discover afresh the eternal unwavering promise of God to overcome those giants.
If you could spend a few minutes with biblical heroines Ruth, Sarah, Mary, and others, what valuable lessons would they share with you? In the tradition of Running with the Giants and Learning from the Giants, John Maxwell shares wisdom on life and leadership inspired by the Bible-this time focusing solely on the stories of nine incredible women. Learn how God blesses the promises you keep to Him, why you should follow your heart to find your hope, and how not to miss your moment with God. Read on your own or study with a group using the provided faith-building questions. You'll enjoy the journey with Maxwell as he imagines what it would be like to visit heaven and meet giants of the faith who had their lives transformed by God. You'll gain insights from: Ruth...for when you must make a decision but don't know what to do. Sarah...for when you can't understand God and impatience threatens to overwhelm you. Mary. . .for when God asks you to do something outside of your comfort zone. The women who influenced Maxwell inspired this book, and he includes the perspectives of those closest to him in this volume. They and the giants of the faith who continue to inspire them will encourage you to fulfill your destiny and leave a lasting, positive impression on your family and the world.
Intended to inspire, deliver, uplift, enlighten, and encourage, this book shares some godly ideas and principles on how to resuscitate from the ashes of one’s losses and challenges, and to resurrect and blossom into a fuller, richer, and happier existence as intended by our Creator God who wants us to have life and have it more abundantly. The human journey on earth is dotted with experiences of difficult challenges of losses and intense encounters of unexpected barriers. While some sojourners face more of these challenges than others, everyone experiences them in one form or the other. This book is meant for all the individuals who are experiencing bereavement and grief; personal, career, job, or business losses; social, marital, or family-related losses; fortune or monetary losses; health-related losses; time-related losses; and or giant- and mountain-like challenges in their lives. Chapter 1 introduces the topic of overcoming your losses, giants, and mountains, including descriptions and definitions of different types of losses, giants, and mountains. Chapter 2 focuses on the painful occasion of the death of a loved one and some recommended steps to follow to make the experience more manageable, meaningful, and productive. Chapter 3 discusses how to deal with people's other losses, including career, business, and job losses; fortunes and property losses; social and relationship losses; loss of one’s health; and loss of one’s time. The challenge of dealing with your giants and mountains is discussed in chapter 4. Chapter 5 peeps into life beyond your losses, giants, and mountains and offers some suggestions on how to make that life more rewarding in your walk with God and man. Finally, chapter 6 discusses how to be born again into the Kingdom of God, to assist folks who want to be true Christians on how to get started.

If you could spend a few minutes with the giants of faith in the Old Testament in person, what lessons would they share with you? In LEARNING FROM THE GIANTS John C. Maxwell draws on fifty years of studying the Bible to share the stories of Elijah, Elisha, Job, Jacob, Deborah, Isaiah, Jonah, Joshua and Daniel. These people fought and won epic battles, served kings, and endured great hardships for God to come out on the other side transformed through His grace. Through them Maxwell explores timeless lessons we can learn about leadership, ourselves, and our relationship with God.
We live in unsettling, challenging times. Everywhere we look, we see giant problems: giant obstacles to sharing faith, giant barriers to peaceful lives, giant strongholds of fear. But what if you knew eight small secrets to unlocking a strength big enough to overcome whatever obstacle life may bring? Using allegory and a bit of humor, Jesus and the Beanstalk explores a passage in 2 Peter 1 to uncover eight truths that will help you unleash a larger-than-life faith: · Faith · Goodness · Knowledge · Self-control · Perseverance · Godliness · Affection for others · Love In this creative, refreshing perspective on spiritual growth, you will discover an unyielding strength when you tap the power of a God who is stronger than any beanstalk and bigger than your biggest giants. PRAISE FOR JESUS AND THE BEANSTALK: “Jesus and the Beanstalk is crafted to touch mind, heart, and soul. It has no lesser goal than to remind all believers that they are giant killers. In an age when there are many new and frightening affronts to people of faith there is no better time to be reminded that giants can be felled by faith and determination.” ~ Alton Gansky, Award winning author of over 35 books "Lori Stanley Roeleveld has given us new spiritual and practical motivation for increasing our ministry effectiveness. This book is refreshing and relevant to daily life. Lori weaves creative, practical and powerful possibilities for us, as disciples to live out our faith through sharing Christ in encouraging ways." ~ Rev. Jim W. Hollis
Living the Life of FAITH is going to take you to a level of faith where trusting in the ability of GOD will be your first response to any situation or circumstance in life without depending on this world's system or your own ability. Faith outside of the word of GOD is no way to live. We need to grab hold to GOD's word like never before and cleave to the promises that he has made for us through the Bible. We need to know it is GOD's will and desire for his children to live a blessed, prosperous, healthy, and happy life. We need to know that we can live this life through faith in GOD and overcome difficult times and challenges in life. In order to do this, we need to know GOD and how he has sent his word to us. We must know how the power of GOD worked in the lives of people in the Bible and that power is still available for us today to change situations and circumstances on our behalf today no matter what we are facing. It is up to us to take our faith out of this world's system and put it in GOD's system. This book will be an inspiration for you to redirect your faith to GOD and lean on GOD for direction in your life. GOD is good and he wants to see good things happen in the lives of his children. We can experience the life that GOD intended for us to have through understanding and accepting the love and the grace of GOD that has been given to us through faith in Jesus Christ.

This book brings together ideas and materials which we have discussed together over the years as friends and colleagues. We draw on four papers published by us both as co-authors and on several more papers published by King-Farlow alone. We wish to thank the editors and publishers of the following journals for permission to make use of matter or points which have appeared in their pages in the years indicated: The Philosophical Quarterly (1957, 1962, 1971); The Thomist (1958, 1971, 1972); The Inter national Philosophical Quarterly (1962); Theoria (1963); The Southern Journal of Philosophy (1963); Sophia (1965, 1967, 1969,1971); Philosoph ical Studies of Eire (1968, 1970, 1971); Philosophy and Phenomenological Research (1968); Analysis (1970); Religious Studies (Cambridge University Press, 1971; we acknowledge a debt to H. D. Lewis, Editor, on page 20). This book is not, however, a collection of reprinted articles. It is a continuous work which deals with a vital cluster of problems in the philosophy of religion. In this work we attempt to utilize both our earlier thoughts, often considerably revised, and our very recent ones in order to argue for the good sense and rationality of making certain strong forms of commitment to some basic elements of primary wisdom in the Judaeo Christian tradition. While pursuing the investigations which have led to the writing of this book we have found ourselves becoming indebted to many individuals and institutions.

Developing Life-Changing Faith contains the spiritual teachings from a 7-year journey to developing the faith that changed my life. This journey started when I accidentally used faith to be healed from an infirmity that plagued me for many years. Questioning how this miracle happened, in this age, I turned to the unused pages of my Bible to find my answer. I saw what I had accidentally done that spurred the miracle, and the simple requirement hidden in plain sight, in its pages. Over the following year, the Spirit showed me misconceptions that blocked my ability to develop and use faith, and showed me the common things I did that made it impossible for God to answer my prayers, essentially tying Gods hands against me. Then I was taught what the foundation of faith really isthe key or seed of faithexplaining why knowing this key is vitally important to develop the kind of faith illustrated in Bible stories. Through the subsequent years, I was taught about the things for which we could pray and the things for which we should not pray, and why; the truth about tests of our faith, why they are necessary, why we should watch for them, and how to pass them every time; and how to use faith correctly, highlighting biblical keys to give a complete understanding about faith. Developing Life-Changing Faith will give the readers the same teachings, understandings, tools, keys, and corrections, to develop the faith that will change their lives. It will lead them from feeling that their faith is not working, to fully understanding how to develop and correctly use faith, which will truly change their lives.
