Ken BoaRewriting Your Broken Story  |  Kenneth Boa
How do you fix a broken story? In this fallen world, life is not how we thought it would be. Jobs vanish, relationships crumble, and health fails. How do we find the hope to persevere? We can make sense of our broken stories by setting them in the context of a larger and greater story. Kenneth Boa shows how God can transform our lives with an eternal perspective when we live with the end in mind. In light of eternity, our struggles are temporary and our plot twists are not fatal. We are hard-wired by God with eternity in our hearts, and that longing gives us purpose, blesses others and helps us make a permanent mark on the world.  |  Link

Charles MorrisFleeing ISIS, Finding Jesus  |  Charles Morris
The average person hears bits and pieces about the horrors surrounding ISIS, and the miraculous turning of many Muslims to faith in Christ in part because of ISIS. Charles Morris puts many of the pieces together to give us a clearer picture. Morris is speaker and president of Haven Ministries, and has served as a broadcast news reporter, editor, and bureau chief for United Press International. He combines his skills and experiences from numerous trips to the Middle East to bring this picture to life.  |  Link

Kent AnnanDoing Justice  |  Kent Annan
No one said pursuing justice would be easy. The road can be so challenging and the destination so distant that you may be discouraged by a lack of progress, compassion or commitment in your quest for justice. How do you stay committed to the journey when God’s kingdom can seem so slow in coming? Kent Annan understands the struggle of working for justice over the long haul. He shares his journey in this interview, which is captured more fully in his book, Slow Kingdom Coming. His words may encourage you to live by the words found in Micah 6:8, a call to show justice.  |  Link

Brian Han GreggWhy Suffering?  |  Brian Han Gregg
One of the most confusing questions facing Christians today is, why does God allow so much suffering in the world? This question is also a barrier in the minds of many atheists toward belief in God. Brian Han Gregg, professor of Biblical studies at the University of Sioux Falls, SD, researched this dilemma and found that the answers are not so simple. There are easily a dozen reasons given to us the Scripture for the trials and challenges we all face in life. Understanding these reasons can help us to face life and to trust God more.  |  Link
