In April 1956, C.S. Lewis, a confirmed bachelor, married Joy Davidman, an
American poet with two small children. After four brief, intensely happy years,
Lewis found himself alone again, and inconsolable. To defend himself against the
loss of belief in God, Lewis wrote this journal, an eloquent statement of
rediscovered faith. In it he freely confesses his doubts, his rage, and his awareness
of human frailty. In it he finds again the way back to life.
In this best-selling classic, Charles Swindoll awakens readers to the life-impacting

Who does not wish that they could overcome evil, tribulation, sorrow, and pain,
and transform them all for the praise and glory of God? Who does not want to live
here on earth on the high places of love and victory as promised by God?
This cannot be done by reliance on ourselves alone. We must lay down our own
selfish will and accept the liberation of living according to God's will.
Hinds' Feet on High Places shows us how we can triumph over evil and pain, grief
and suffering by placing ourselves in the hands of God, who wants to bring all his
children to him.
Our culture trains us to prepare for almost everything but death. How can we

days on earth.
In this sequel to his immensely popular bestseller Front Porch Tales, Quaker
writer Philip Gulley envelops readers once again in a rare world of plainspoken
and honest values. These tender stories of his life are gathered around the
enduring themes of the great spiritual virtues: love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Each story reminds
us how we long for such virtues in a world sorely in need of the love and hope
they bring. With his folksy style and rustic ear, Gulley treats his readers to a great
variety of personalities from the loveable to the eccentric who make small
town life fascinating. Readers will discover a simpler way of life, where things are
less complicated and folks care for one another and are willing to do what is right
no matter the cost.
"If there is a loving God, then why is it that . . ." You've heard that question,
perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue
of pain. Does God order our suffering? Does he decree an abusive childhood,
orchestrate a jet crash, steer a tornado through a community? Or did he simply
wind up the world's mainspring and now is watching from a distance? In this Gold
Medallion Award-winning book, Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither
capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own
experiences, Yancey looks at pain physical, emotional, and spiritual and helps
us understand why we suffer. This most current edition of what is perhaps
Yancey's best-known book will speak to those for whom life sometimes just doesn't
make sense. And it will help equip anyone who wants to reach out to someone in
pain but just doesn't know what to say.

be experienced during the worst of times. And Robert A. Schuller doesn't want you

Why does the Bible contain so many stories of hurting people? Though their
situations vary, their conditions don't. They have nowhere to turn. Yet before
their eyes stands a never-say-die Galilean who majors in stepping in when
everyone else steps out. Lucado reminds us that the purpose of these portraits
isn't to tell us what Jesus didbut rather to remind us what Jesus still does.
