A Physician's Biblical & Scientific Guide to Nutrition
Scott Stoll, MD
Foreword: Walt Larimore, MD
The Center for Disease Control states that more than 75 percent of diseases are preventable or reversible with no doctors, no medicine, and no surgery! Sounds impossible, right? And yet, it's truly so simple and logical that, in our so-called "enlightened" society, it seems ridiculous to us. The solution? Return to God's diet plan as described on Day 3 of Creation in Genesis 1:20. That's it!
In Alive! Dr. Scott Stoll uses the Bible, case studies, medical research, and scientific facts to teach us how to retreat from our suicidal sugar-and-fat-based diet to God's divine plant-based food plan. If we return to God's original provision of food, we can achieve renewed health, disease reversal, and energized life into our eighties, nineties, and beyond!
This is not just another fad diet--it's God's perfect food plan. Try it. You'll live longer and truly enjoy being Alive!

life has to offer.
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty! Worthy is

Those words of adoration echo across the heavens and repeat and repeat down
through the corridors of time from glory to everlasting glory.
Every living thing in heaven continually
worships the God of Lightfrom angels to
beasts and elders. But while worship in heaven is, no doubt, astonishing,
ultimate worship happens right here on earth. And through that worship we are
drawn into the intimate presence of God himself, to the very throne of heaven.
The origin of worship
began in the heavens,
but it was
perfected here on earth.
for Worship, international worship leader and author Marina McLean leads us
on a fascinating journey into the great banquet hall of God by exploring the
spiritual feast we call worship. It's a celebration of devotion and eternal
hope hosted by our Father.
This is not simply a logical instruction
book on how to worship. It's not a rehearsal of tired clichés and overworked
concepts. Instead, Appetite for Worship
is a rich, personal encounter with the one who adores you, the one whose
signature you bear, the one whose breath and life fill and sustain you. It's a
delicious experience you'll never forget, and it will propel you forward in
your search for life's deepest meaning and eternal life's highest joy.
This book will whet
your appetite for worship, and you'll come away with a little taste of heaven. Buy it. Consume it.

At six o’clock on a cold, foggy

it isn’t. This is a true story, and the nightmare was all too real. Life as
Bonnie had known it was over, and the future she faced was unimaginable . . .
Bound to a Promise is a nonfiction
novel, told in fascinating, page-turning fiction style. This astonishing true
story will grab you with the first sentence and hold you captive until the very

and puzzling mystery.

the promisemaker keep that promise or was it broken? The answer to that
burning question had everlasting consequences both for the promise maker and the one to whom the promise was made.

Inside Lucifer's War
Byron J. Smith
"Empty, cold, and afraid, I hear a chanting in a tongue I do
not recognize or understand. Then I hear an evil laughter over the chants, a
laughter that sends a chill down my spine."
Dr. Thomas Fields, renowned writer, political science
professor, and champion of atheism, awakes in the horrifying presence of
Lucifer—Satan himself—and his despicable disciples. And life as Thomas has
known it ceases to exist.
Lucifer has a master plan for Thomas, but first he must
force Thomas to worship him alone.
Suddenly Thomas lands in the midst of the Principal—a secret
organization dedicated to controlling the world under the guise of creating “peace.”
The Principal’s true mission is to crush Christianity and its followers. But
they need Dr. Fields to accomplish their mission.
That mission could cost the lives of the friends Thomas
loves and ultimately all Christians.
A riveting story of spiritual fiction…or is it?
What if it’s really true? You decide.

Make Your Vision Go Viral
Taking Christ to Great Cities
A Proven 5-Step Plan That Really Works
Dr. Gary Sorrells
Foreword by Dr. Howard Norton
Christ’s final words set out His eternal vision and direction for His disciples: “Go and make followers of all people in the world” (Matthew 28:19 NCV). It was part of His last will and testament. But how can you do it successfully?
In 1961, drawn together by their passion to fulfill the vision of Christ, thirty-one dedicated graduates of Abilene Christian University (ACU) moved to Brazil to ignite the flame of eternal hope in the hearts of South American people. Their plan was to plant churches in great Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking cities in the Latin world. And Great Cities Missions (GCM) was born.
Since then GCM has recruited, trained, and cared for more than 279 missionaries on 29 teams, successfully reaching multiple cities on the South American continent—missionaries such as Max and Denalyn Lucado, Bryan and Becky Gibbs, Kelley and Julie Grant, and many others.
Now, fifty years later, under the leadership of Gary Sorrells and others, GCM’s vision is ever expanding and powerful. And through their extensive experience GCM has crystalized a model for success in foreign missions. Make Your Vision Go Viral details that model in a proven 5-step plan—that really works! It’s a practical plan that every missionary in every church can follow to succeed.

Makeovers with Leftovers
Learning to Live on What's Left of Life
Foreword by Thelma Wells
When life knocks you down, steals
your joy, and takes away your livelihood,
what can you do? God says, “Live
on what’s left!” Right. So how easy is that?
When Sheila Bailey’s husband—prominent pastor E. K. Bailey—died,
Sheila faced the rest of her life alone, in deep grief, with limited income,
and no life direction. What was she to do? How would she survive? Then she
found the answer in 2 Kings when the prophet Elisha told a widow with only a
little bit of oil,
Go sell the oil . . . and live on what’s left. (4:7 MSG)
In other words, “Live on your leftovers!” Growing up on
leftovers, Sheila was familiar with that concept. And it has now become her
daily mantra and powerful message, which has exploded into a dynamic ministry
that touches thousands of lives each year. In Makeovers with Leftovers, Dr. Bailey provides in-depth Bible
teaching, including these valuable features:

God’s message of hope for the hurting

The Person Beside the Bed
Encouragement for the Informal Caregiver
Jo Angelia Simpson
No one really thinks about the person beside the bed.
The caregiver is like an empty chair—visitors focus on
the person in the
bed, and the caregiver becomes invisible.
In the United States today more than fifty million family caregivers
provide an average of thirty-seven billion hours of unpaid, informal care
per year for adult family members, children, and friends with chronic illnesses
or conditions. Family caregivers log in from twenty-one to eighty or more hours
a week, and many do not get consistent help from other family members.
Informal caregiving on an extended basis can become extremely stressful
and tiring. So here’s the question: who is caring for the caregiver in your
life ? Caregivers desperately need to be care receivers too.
But what can you do to support, relieve, and assist the person in your life—the
one who is giving so much?
In The Person Beside the Bed, author Jo Simpson speaks from
extensive personal experience as a caregiver, offering practical, down-to-earth
lessons and resources to bolster the physical and emotional needs of informal
caregivers, including these excellent features:
- An informative glossary of terms that caregivers encounter
- A collection
uplift and encourage caregivers
- A researched list of online links to valuable websites and other helpful materials
The fact is,
at some point you—as a daughter, son, husband, wife, grandchild, niece, nephew,
or friend—are likely to become an informal caregiver for someone you love too.
And this well-packed, helpful book can be your best friend on the journey. Get
it. Use it. Read it and reap!
