Find hope to press on . . .

Hope to endure . . .

Hope to stay focused . . .

Hope to see dreams fulfilled . . .

Hope is more than mere wishful thinking. Hope is a vital necessity of life?a gift that God wants to give to you. And in a world that regularly writes dreams off as foolish and drains the hope from the heart with dark pessimism, Hope Again is a voice crying in the wilderness . . . a word of enthusiasm for life in the midst of any difficult situation you are in.

Combining the New Testament teachings of Peter and the insights of one of the most popular authors of our day, Hope Again is an encouraging, enlivening, and refreshing look at why we can dare to hope no matter who we are, no matter what we face.

As Charles Swindoll says, "If you want to smile through your tears, if you want to rejoice through times of suffering, just keep reminding yourself that what you're going through isn't the end of the story, it's simply the rough journey that leads to the right destination."

Not since C.S. Lewis has a writer so accurately and empathetically described our human condition -- our deep longing for meaning and purpose. Lewis himself called it "the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy." With fresh insight and authenticity, Thann Bennett invites you to join him on the journey of discovering the one true King. Thann weaves biblical application with personal illustration in a compelling call to action. Bound to be a timeless classic, you will come away knowing your true purpose -- intimacy with and service to the King that will echo beyond your years.

"In Search of the King is informative and inspirational. It is a must read." -- Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), New York Times best-selling author

"Thann Bennett's book, In Search of the King, provides wise souls with an excellent road map. I highly recommend this book." -- Scott Sauls, Senior Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee, and author of Jesus Outside the Lines and Befriend

"Thann Bennett's very personal and engaging style will captivate your heart and imagination and send you on a relentless journey to learn the character of Jesus, walk in His ways, and join His mission." -- Heather Zempel, Discipleship Pastor at National Community Church, and author of Community Is Messy, and Amazed and Confused

Who are you? What defines you? What makes you, you?

In the past an individual's identity was more predictable than it is today. Life's big questions were basically settled before you were born: where you'd live, what you'd do, the type of person you'd marry, your basic beliefs, and so on. Today personal identity is a do-it-yourself project. Constructing a stable and satisfying sense of self is hard amidst relationship breakdowns, the pace of modern life, the rise of social media, multiple careers, social mobility, and so on. Ours is a day of identity angst.

Known by God is built on the observation that humans are inherently social beings; we know who we are in relation to others and by being known by them. If one of the universal desires of the self is to be known by others, being known by God as his children meets our deepest and lifelong need for recognition and gives us a secure identity. Rosner argues that rather than knowing ourselves, being known by God is the key to personal identity.

He explores three biblical angles on the question of personal identity: being made in the image of God, being known by God and being in Christ. The notion of sonship is at the center - God gives us our identity as a parent who knows his child. Being known by him as his child gives our fleeting lives significance, provokes in us needed humility, supplies cheering comfort when things go wrong, and offers clear moral direction for living.

We have all experienced this. You know, that lonely, hindsight realization that we are trying to do too much. That maybe, maybe we should have said no.If you ever find yourself in that place, overwhelmed with commitments, each of which as worthy as the next, all of which are too important to give up, you don't know how to create space, and you just can't bring yourself to say no, then this is the book for you.If you've ever been stuck in a cycle with a loved one or a friend where you feel taken advantage of, or even just taken for granted, you might even stand up for yourself, or create distance from that friend, only to find yourself in the exact same position with the same person or someone new, then this is the book for you.If you have a loved one who just never seems to break a cycle that you know is destroying them, and deep down you feel you are stuck in a cycle right alongside them, enabling them, then this is the book for you.Come alongside author Amy Copeland as we take on the mammoth task of learning why "No!" can be the best thing for everyone, and then actually go about the task of doing it, one boundary at a time.Love & the Art of Saying No begins with the author's confession of a personal guilty-pleasure habit that reveals a deeper fascination with behaviors and a desire to help others. In her own journey, Amy Copeland, a pastry chef-turned-counselor, discovered helpful truths about codependence, people-pleasing and over-commitment that she shares in this practical book. Part memoir and part self-help, Love & the Art of Saying No takes the reader through the author's story, articulates the lessons learned, and offers opportunities to "Practice Your Art" through reflection and encouragement. If you've ever felt taken advantage of, taken for granted, or overwhelmed with the weight of your responsibilities, it may be time to learn that sometimes saying "No" is the most loving thing you can do. Loving well and caring for the people in our lives need not induce stress and anxiety. Copeland offers understanding of the psychology of behaviors as well as practical solutions in this highly relatable book.

Alain Emerson felt like the luckiest man in the world. A talented young pastor of a thriving church and national director of a prayer movement, he had found and married Lyndsay, the girl of his dreams, his soul mate.

He could never have imagined that, in a matter of months, he would be nursing his beautiful twenty-three-year-old bride through the final stages of cancer, and that at the age of only twenty-seven he would find himself a widower, distraught and alone. The faith that had once seemed firm and secure began to crumble. And then there were the questions. Hadn't he been faithful and obedient? Why had God not answered his prayers? Why was God silent now? Why?

Alain realized that in order for his faith to survive, he needed to face God, not hold Him at arm's length. Like Jacob, he had to wrestle, and like Job, he had to voice his pain and disappointment. He had to lean into the pain.

In this profound exploration of loss, Emerson walks through the stages of grief and the shock of choosing to face God with his disappointment. He experiences the bewildering silence of God, the absence of simple answers, and the dark tunnel of despair. Taking great comfort from the Psalms and the work of writers who truly understand grief--Elie Wiesel, Walter Brueggemann, Jürgen Moltmann--Emerson wrestles with God and with his sorrow, and emerges with a deeper understanding and knowledge of God, a stronger and deeper faith, and a sense of having seen His face.
