It's said that decisions are made in the details. And yet, we make hundreds, even thousands of decisions daily. So how do Christians process all those details and come up with answers that please God? In Decision-Making by the Book, author, lecturer, and radio personality, Haddon W. Robinson, takes his usual clear-eyed, not-a-word-wasted approach, to help you make decisions according to biblical principles--every time.

Master one of our economy's most rare skills and achieve groundbreaking results with this "exciting" book (Daniel H. Pink) from an "exceptional" author (New York Times Book Review).

Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep Work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep-spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there's a better way.

In Deep Work, author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. He then presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four "rules," for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill.

1. Work Deeply
2. Embrace Boredom
3. Quit Social Media
4. Drain the Shallows

A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, Deep Work takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories-from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind, to a social media pioneer buying a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air-and no-nonsense advice, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored. Deep Work is an indispensable guide to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world.

The "Design Companion for the Digital Artist" provides the missing elements in the digital artist's library. While many people can learn how to use QuarkXPress, PageMaker, Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Flash, and other graphic applications, books designed to teach specific applications simply can't deliver information on what looks good. This work focuses on just that--fundamental and proven methods of building and designing effective and attractive pages. From where to get ideas to how to deliver them most effectively, this book introduces concepts such as the proper use of space, the best way to arrange elements on a page, what people see, and much, much more. Whatever book the reader is using to learn the technical application of digital tools, the techniques and issues provided in this book will dramatically improve their results.

Modern Christians profess to be authentic, but do we wrap ourselves in Christianese more than Christlikeness? A Different Kind of Crazy challenges you to take Jesus' teaching, and make it your own.

Author Lawrence W. Wilson points out that Jesus did not say, "Repeat after me," as if the faith were a set of arithmetic tables to be memorized and repeated on command. He said, "Follow me." Jesus showed us a way to live, from loving our enemies to remaining pure when society encourages us to indulge our desires.

Are you ready to truly follow Jesus and experience a life your friends, family, and the world may see as A Different Kind of Crazy? Take a risk. Change your life. And grow more like Jesus.

Includes a discussion guide to facilitate small group discussions.

How to Love When You Don't Feel Like Loving

Everywhere we look, we see evidence that love is in short supply. Terrorists and political corruption, school shootings and troubled marriages, impatient online sniping and character assassination--all point to the fact that we do not know how to love one another as Jesus commanded and modeled. We put our own interests and happiness first, despite the fact that the greatest happiness comes through sacrificial love.
In this book, Dr. Larry Crabb shows readers how to understand the deep and perfect love we are shown by our Creator and Redeemer, and how to pour that love into other people. This love is about more than being nice and serving others. It's about relating to others in such a way that they feel heard, seen, and valued. This love sacrifices and suffers and keeps loving, even when doing so is costly. This kind of love, says Crabb, is the kind worth fighting for in all of our relationships, and A Different Kind of Happiness shows how to make it a reality.
