In this updated version of his best-selling book, Swindoll poignantly and honestly portrays the need for authentic love and transparency.

In a world that focuses on images, sound bites, and quick impressions, we have forgotten how to really know one another. Many of us recoil from true intimacy. Author Charles Swindollw writes,"Full self-disclosure is something we tend to avoid at all costs. In fact, we are prone to keep people out of our private worlds by wearing masks?not physical masks?but psychological ones." For example . . .

  • The "I'm tough" mask hides weakness and fear.
  • The "I'm holy" mask hides our struggle with temptation.
  • The "I can handle it" mask hides bewilderment and hurt.
  • Removing your masks and relinquishing your defenses are essential aspects of the Christian experience. And Dropping Your Guard portrays Bible teacher Chuck Swindoll at his best, delving into the treasures of God's Word to reveal strategic principles for building open and genuine relationships.

    Chuck Swindoll says,"My desire is that our Lord will open your eyes to the value of authentic relationships, and that His Spirit will free you to be vulnerable as you drop your guard with others in the family of God. I assure you, the result is worth the effort."

    The apostle Paul lived for several years in Ephesus, a port city in the wealthy capital of the Roman Empire's province of Asia. From there he brought the good news of Jesus Christ to people in surrounding cities and towns. He mentored a cosmopolitan group of Jews and Gentiles from all over the world who believed in Jesus. An altercation over false idols required him to leave before he wanted to, but the people he loved remained in his heart and prayers. In the first half of his letter to these believers, Paul explains what it means to have a new identity in Christ. In the second half, he tells how to live in light of this identity. And while cultural dynamics may differ between the past and present and his geographical context and ours, Paul's words have great application for us today. Knowing who we are, our identity in Christ and what that means, is essential to how we live. Earl Grey with Ephesians takes readers back to first-century Ephesus to explore the answers Scripture provides to the questions "Who am I?" and "What am I here for?" as well as how to live in light of these great realities. Leader's guide included.

    Amid confusion and turmoil, unearth the hope in Scripture

    Ecclesiastes can be a difficult book. Women struggle with the writer's laments on the meaninglessness of life, the pointlessness of work, and the lack of connection from generation to generation. They may think there are too many other books offering spiritual encouragement to waste time on this skeptical book of Scripture. But is that the whole picture?

    Sue Edwards says there's more here than meets the eye. In fact, if studied properly, Ecclesiastes can lead women to an optimistic outlook on life. It can help women abandon bad habits, hang-ups, and foolish perspectives that keep them in bondage to everything that threatens to destroy the ultimate joy Jesus wants for them. All they need are the proper interpretive tools for this valuable book.

    Edwards walks women through Ecclesiastes, revealing nuggets of wisdom about life and God, as well as dire warnings on what to avoid. Any woman who wants to know God and live according to His design, from new believers to veterans of the faith, will discover anew one of the richest sources of wisdom ever written.

    Where are great leaders like Elijah today? Uncompromisingly strong, yet self-controlled. Disciplined, yet forgiving. Audaciously courageous, yet kind. Heroic in the heat of battle, yet humble in the aftermath.

    We see a few such men and women, but the list is tragically short. Rarely does someone model these invaluable traits more obviously than God's mighty prophet Elijah, whose calling was anything but calm and free from conflict. Nevertheless, as you are about to discover in this book. Elijah exemplified true heroism and genuine humility amid the relentless pressure of battle.

    Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility is the fifth volume in the best-selling Great Lives from God's Word series by Charles Swindoll. The series also includes such powerful biographies as Joseph, David, Esther, and Moses.

    Exploring the depths of Elijah's fascinating life as a prophet of God, Swindoll does not gloss over his human weaknesses; rather, he presents an honest picture of this ordinary man who God transformed into His personal spokesman to confront idolatry and evil in the ancient world. You will find that it's a life worth emulating.

    In a world that has lost its way, due in part to the lack of balanced, godly leadership, we are more than ever in need of a few Elijah-like men and women who are not afraid to live courageously among their peers as they walk humbly with their God.

    "May this book establish deep within you a desire to stand strong for what is right as you bow low before Him who is worthy of your trust and obedience."-Charles Swindoll

    Are you discouraged? Do your shoulders ache with the weight of carrying your problems alone? Do you wish you could find someone who understands, someone who won't condemn you for your failures or ridicule you for your mistakes? Let Chuck Swindoll put a friendly arm around your shoulders and show you how the burdens can be lifted from your heart. Encourage Me offers tender insight into the needs of the human heart and how God wants to meet those needs through the gift of encouragement. Swindoll says, "Encouragement is awesome. Think about it: It has the capacity to lift a man's or a woman's shoulders. To breathe fresh air into the fading embers of a smoldering dream. To actually change the course of another human being's day . . . or week . . . or life." This classic devotional is a treasury of thoughts on finding the encouragement you need -- and learning to share that encouragement with others.

    Are we headed toward a global economic collapse? Financial markets are violently unstable worldwide, and the key benchmarks of financial health are rapidly getting worse.
    Christians know the Bible predicts a coming day when one person will take control of the entire global economy. But how will that happen? We may now have the answers. In fact, the biblical and technological evidence tells us that a cashless society and one-world economy are not only possible, but inevitable.
    Bestselling author Mark Hitchcock skillfully brings together current research and Bible prophecy to address these important questions:

  • How is the stage being set for economic collapse and a cashless society?
  • What technology will make this cashless world possible?
  • How will the Antichrist control the world economy?
  • What will happen to the people who face all this tumult and chaos?
  • An eye-opening survey of the ways that future events can impact our lives even today.

    We live in a world that seems to be on the verge of coming apart. Shootings. Killer viruses. The threat of nuclear war. All of it is just too real.
    Why does the apocalypse craze in movies and video games appeal to so many people so strongly? One answer is it shows us the primal foundations of our existence. In the same way, what's happening in our world today is moving Christians to return to the foundations of our spiritual existence. Believers everywhere must get back to what matters most. We must always remember that our battle, at its most basic level, is spiritual.

    In The End Times Survival Guide, you will discover ten spiritual tools the Bible relates directly to our preparation for the Lord's coming--ten biblical survival strategies to live out in these last days so you and your family can prosper in an increasingly decaying, darkening world. These strategies won't guarantee your physical or financial well-being, but they are guaranteed to bring life and vitality to your spiritual health and welfare as you cling to the immovable rock of God's Word.

    When life is whittled down to its essence, the real issue is our spiritual condition before God. Discover how you can protect yourself and your family spiritually in these dark days.

    Unlike Paul's letters to the Galatians or the Corinthians, the letter to the Ephesians contains almost no clues about the situation and issues its recipients faced. Nevertheless, the letter vividly depicts how God's will revealed in Christ reorients believers' lives toward unity, mutual respect, submission, and love--in short, new life in Christ, relying on his power and strength. In this Tyndale Commentary, Darrell Bock shows how this precious jewel of a letter combines gospel doctrine, enablement, and exhortation to life. The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. In the new New Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Theology. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.
