EMBRACING FAITH IN JESUS AND ORDERING YOUR AFFAIRS ACCORDINGLY.
ABOUT MORTALITY & OUR ULTIMATE DESTINATION
The Immortal by Angela Hunt is fiction, but this unique book helps one recognize that mortality—yes, death and even aging is a gift. Imagine not being able to die . . . living generation after generation without release from one’s carnal nature . . . one’s soul trapped in an ageless body and denied entrance into heaven’s realm.
Living like You Were Dying is a humorous but compelling CD message by Tim Kimmel. Lost, alone, cold, and afraid . . . he studies the life of Christ as our example in facing death. Kimmel states, “Until you are prepared to die, you are not free to live.”
In Light of Eternity Randy Alcorn challenges us to live in light of eternity and its consequences. “Since Christ came to free us from bondage to the fear of death (Hebrews 2:15), and since death is the necessary doorway to take us to heaven, why is it that so many Christians today are so afraid to die?” For Randy’s answer, see page 148.

Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates in old manuscripts, textual criticism, and biblical studies. How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?
Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Hear is a collection of Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, answering the question–What is God’s offer, and why do I need it?
