The Christian gospel, says Brueggemann, is too easily preached and heard. Too often technical reason and excessive religious certitude reduce the gospel to coercive, debilitating pietisms that mask the text's meaning and freeze the hearers heart. With skill and imagination, Brueggemann demonstrates how the preacher can engage in daring speech?differently voiced and therefore differently heard. This speech, as suggested by the Bible itself, is "poetic" speech, enabling the preacher to forge communion in the midst of alienation, bring healing out of guilt, and empower the hearer for "missional imagination." As an alternative to theological/homiletical discourse that is moralistic, pietistic or scholastic, Brueggemann proposes preaching that is artistic, poetic, and dramatic. The basis for the 1989 Lyman Beecher Lectures at Yale Divinity School, Finally Comes the Poet is a unique and transforming guide for powerful preaching.

If you have struggled personally against the powerful draw of pornography, or if you have ever tried to help someone fighting this battle, you know how hard it is to break free. But real freedom isn’t found by trying harder to change. Nor is it found in a particular method or program. Only Jesus Christ has the power to free people from the enslaving power of pornography. In Finally Free, Dr. Heath Lambert, a leader in the biblical counseling movement, lays out eight gospel-centered strategies for overcoming the deceitful lure of pornography. Each chapter clearly demonstrates how the gospel applies to this particular battle and how Jesus can move readers from a life of struggle to a life of purity. If you or someone you care about is fighting this battle, there is good news: No matter how intense or long-standing the struggle, Jesus Christ can, will, and does set people free from the power of pornography.

Finally Broken is born out of personal experiences-from child abuse, spousal abuse, multiple marriages, and addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs-that author Rena Montford encountered throughout her lifetime. Never admitting to having it all together, but using her own personal struggle as a way for readers to relate, Rena's book invites readers to bring order to their own existence by inviting God's control over every segment of their lives. The content is raw and honest, and offers help and hope to those who wonder if they have out-sinned God's grace, or if their life circumstances have set them aside from being used by God. Is there a way back? Having reached the point of being Finally Broken, God has inspired the writing of Rena's life so that those who do not know Him in the fullness of His power might believe and trust Him when all other resources they sought have failed.

From a VICE magazine columnist, “a deeply entertaining—if occasionally horrifying” (Joshua Piven, coauthor of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook) look at how humanity is likely to weather such happenings as nuclear war, a global internet collapse, antibiotics shortages, and even immortality. If you live on planet Earth you’re probably scared of the future. How could you not be? Some of the world’s most stable democracies are looking pretty shaky. Technology is invading personal relationships and taking over jobs. Relations among the three superpowers—the US, China, and Russia—are growing more complicated and dangerous. A person watching the news has to wonder: is it safe to go out there or not? Taking inspiration from his virally popular VICE column “How Scared Should I Be?,” Mike Pearl games out many of the “could it really happen?” scenarios we’ve all speculated about, assigning a probability rating, and taking us through how it would unfold. He explores what would likely occur in dozens of possible scenarios—among them the final failure of antibiotics, the loss of the world’s marine life, a complete ban on guns in the US, and even contact with extraterrestrial life—and reports back from the future, providing a clear picture of how the world would look, feel, and even smell in each of these instances. For fans of such bestsellers as What If? and The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook, The Day It Finally Happens is about taking future events that we don’t really understand and getting to know them in close detail. Pearl’s “well-researched speculations induce daydreams and nightmares and mark [him] as one of his generation’s most interesting writers” (Alec Ross, New York Times bestselling author).

An album of thirteen short stories. An invitation to embark on a journey: from modern urban London, to a river in Africa, to world war, to the near and not-so-near past, to death and the ultimate state. Joseph Smith’s third book, Finally My Ambulance, is a flow of fiction, powerful stories that stand alone, but are interconnected in theme and tone; voices from the author of The Wolf and Taurus, voices in human form (mostly), still fierce in directness and purpose, laced with playful cruelty, originality, and ultimately the possibility of compassion. With his first two books Joseph Smith showed himself to be a writer of astonishing power and originality. Now he has written another unique work, emerging hungrily from the darker woods of contemporary fiction.

At the age of seven, Burton found himself at the edge of the cliff of life when he discovered that his father had just died after his third consecutive heart attack.

Though his thoughts became unfathomable and suddenly deprived him of enjoying the sincere and pure experience of the normal youth, he managed to accumulate each thought and experience and formulate it into poetry. This allowed him to suddenly discover freedom. In He Finally Spoke, Burton provides graphic descriptions of his childhood and horrifying experiences as a youth growing up in the darkness of evil. Mental abuse, deprivation, rejection and tragedy plagued his early years, yet through sheer force of character and tenacity he was able to overcome these obstacles and ascended to become a profound leader and the voice for the future generations.
