With his warm, caring style in He Did This Just For You, Max
Lucado examines the symbols surrounding Christ's crucifixion,
revealing the claims of the cross and asserting that if they are
true, then Christianity itself is true. The supporting evidence
either makes the cross the single biggest hoax of all time, or
the hope of all humanity.

Did ancient patriarchs like Methuselah actually live hundreds
of years? Why do some events appear in different order in

when they "saw" him again? Inquiring minds want to know!

and Understand Your Bible.
Epic invites us to revisit the drama of life, viewing God not
only as the author but also as the lead actor and exploring
His motives and His heart. As Eldredge retells the gospel
in four acts, he examines the power of story, the universal
longing for a "plot" that makes sense deep inside us, our
movies, and how all of this points to the gospel itself.
In Blessed Are the Uncool, Paul Grant deconstructs
the cultural phenomenon of cool, an ever-elusive,
exclusionary act of perpetual rebellion for rebellion's
sake. A life spent chasing after cool is exposed for the
fickle, fruitless and ultimately inauthentic life that it is.
In its place God offers us the beloved community: where
exclusion is replaced with love, rebellion is redeemed
with hope.
