2 Great Books for 1 Great Price. Both are Hardcover Clothbound.
The Blessed Life - It's easy to receive an easy message, one we want to hear, one that allows us to settle back in our comfortable seats. But occasionally we hear a message that shakes us up, a message that challenges our comfortable thinking. Author Troy Dobbs, Senior Pastor at Grace Church of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, confronts the wildly popular prosperity gospel, that God promises health and wealth, which has gained a foothold in the world today. He unpacks the profound message from Jesus that will make you think and rethink, and maybe even change your mind about what a blessed life really means. The Blessed Life, that no one really wants, unpacks a timeless message that is as relevant today as when it was first spoken on a mountain, over 2000 years ago.
Glimpses of Grace - Finding Your Place in the Master Artist's Mosaic Do you long to make a difference in this world? Does your life seem to pass by without purpose? Maybe you feel your life is a pile of broken pieces - useless and damaged beyond repair. You feel that you have messed up too much to be used by God, or you assume you have nothing of value to offer. Perhaps you are struggling with belief in God. Do you wonder why things happen the way they do - or if there is any meaning or purpose behind them? Maybe you don't even know if God exists. Could there be a Creator who cares for His creation, or are we just here by chance? If you long to find the answers to these questions then know this: God longs to answer you. He tells us through the lips of Jeremiah: "You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart." This is a collection of true-life events from people just like you who pondered the same questions. They found the answers they were looking for through glimpses of God's grace. We challenge you to read their stories and see if you can walk away unchanged. Will you accept the challenge and be changed forever? Maybe it is time to deposit the tiles of your life at His feet so you can be part of His masterpiece.
