Many Christians who want to impact the world mistakenly assume that influence belongs only to the ministry front-man-not to the next tier of leaders and unseen servants. But the life of T. W. Wilson proves otherwise. As Billy Graham's closest friend and longtime personal assistant, T. W. Wilson turned his own valuable leadership skills to the task of supporting Billy and ended up influencing thousands of lives both directly and indirectly. His life is an inspiring testimony to the power of "next-level" servanthood to maximize the power of the church for the twenty-first century. Filled with interviews and stories from many of Billy Graham's associates and eight pages of photographs, this book offers a fascinating look inside the most successful evangelistic ministry of modern times as well as an inspiring blueprint for purposeful servant-leadership.

Billy Graham's now legendary first New York Crusade in 1957 was a touchstone that affected an entire generation. Nearly fifty years later, the Reverend Billy Graham returned to New York in June 2005 for what was likely his final Crusade, preaching the power of God's love to hundreds of thousands of people over three life-changing evenings.
"Living in God's Love" contains all three sermons from this important event, and includes an original introduction and an afterword both written by Billy Graham specifically for this book. "Living in God's Love" also features black-and-white photographs from the 2005 New York Crusade, and a moving foreword by his daughter Anne Graham Lotz.
Billy Graham's message of the transforming power of Christ's love is one that is needed now more than ever.

"Every man dies. Not every man really lives."

--William Wallace, Braveheart

More than twenty years ago Braveheart captured the hearts of moviegoers around the world. The film was nominated for ten Academy Awards, winning five. Now, for the first time, author and screenwriter Randall Wallace shares the journey that led him to the famous Scottish warrior and how telling the story of William Wallace changed the direction of his life and career--from that surprising first moment in Edinburgh, Scotland, to selling the script to a major Hollywood studio.

Part autobiography, part master class, Living the Braveheart Life invites us to explore five major archetypes in Braveheart that resonate not only in Randall's life but in the modern-day lives of both men and women: the Father, Teacher, Warrior, Sage, and Outlaw.

Join blockbuster film director Randall Wallace on the journey of his creative and personal life. Discover why thousands of moviegoers continue to say Braveheart is their all-time favorite film and how its creator and architect came to believe that he must write as if his life depended on it.

Living the Braveheart Life is a challenge to all of us to engage in the greatest battle of all--the one inside the human heart.

"I don't think I've ever read anything like it . . . a prescription for what ails the contemporary soul."

--Steven Pressfield, screenwriter & author of -The War of Art

Front Flap

During his prolific Hollywood career, Randall Wallace has amassed an enviable body of work. Films such as The Man in the Iron Mask, We Were Soldiers, and Secretariat have become box office standards. Yet no film defines his life and career more than Braveheart, written from a well of deep personal passion, steeped in years of reflection.

With roots in small-town Tennessee, Randall's hunger for adventure and unlimited horizons leads him to Duke University. -There he sits under the tutelage of Thomas A. Langford, whose infectious love and learning and faith light up a classroom and a young man's vision of life's possibilities.

A decade later, while on a trip to Scotland, Randall is introduced to an unfamiliar statue with an inscription that bears his last name. After hearing the first fragments of the Scottish hero's tale, Randall recognizes the seeds of a truly great story.

His William Wallace and his band of warriors forever changed the way we view love, war, and freedom. Living the Braveheart Life is a personal narrative of how an epic feature film came to life and breathed life into its author. It is the kind of book that will change the way we approach our internal battles, creative or personal.

Welcome to a master class in storytelling from the consummate storyteller.

Few of us have heard of Catherine von Bora. And yet, as the beloved wife of Martin Luther, she can very justifiably be seen as one of the most influential figures in the Reformation. She made her home a haven of rest for the storm tossed man that was her husband. Luther once said, 'Next to God's Word, the world has no more precious treasure than holy matrimony. God's best gift is a pious, cheerful, God-fearing wife, with whom you may live peacefully, to whom you may entrust your goods, your body, and your life.'

Morris Ashcraft provides a a brief biographical sketch and a reliable guide to Rudolf Bultmann s system of thought and his continuing theological influence. It is part of the classic Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series, recently made available again with new paperback cover designs.


How can modern scientific humanity understand the strange religious language of the Bible? This is one of the questions Rudolf Bultmann (1884 1976) spent his life answering. As a devout Lutheran committed to the Christian faith, Bultmann s concern was how to make Christianity intelligible in the twentieth century. His concept of demythologizing was part of his lifelong attempt to help people hear the Christian gospel and respond to it authentically. All of this originated out of a genuine pastoral concern to highlight the nature of New Testament faith. As Morris Ashcraft writes, He stands alongside Karl Barth as a man who changed the direction of theology significantly and perhaps permanently.


In this book, along with a brief biographical sketch, Morris Ashcraft provides a concise and reliable guide to Bultmann s system of thought and his continuing influence.


The Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series remains a must-read for anyone eager to understand these theologians and their impact on today s church.

In this overview of Soren Kierkegaard s life and work, Elmer Duncan helps readers understand Kierkegaard s principal philosophical and theological insights and their ongoing effect on current religious thought. It is part of the classic Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series, recently made available again with new paperback cover designs.


Generally acknowledged as one of the greatest thinkers of the nineteenth century, Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard (1813 1855) has also often been named the father of existentialism, as twentieth-century Christian existentialism appropriated his insights for theology and ethics, stressing human experience, freedom, and the commitment of faith. Contemporary theology can hardly be understood without reading him.


In this overview of Kierkegaard s life and work, Elmer Duncan helps readers understand Kierkegaard s principal philosophical and theological insights and their ongoing effect on current religious thought. Most of all, Duncan unveils a vivid portrait of a sincere Christian becomer who believed Christianity is not a doctrine to be learned but a life to be lived a man whose primary objective was to help others to be becoming Christians also.


The Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series remains a must-read for anyone eager to understand these theologians and their impact on today s church.

Five hundred years ago, a monk named Martin Luther wrote ninety-five questions, hoping to start a discussion about sin and repentance at the University of Wittenberg in Germany. In a few months those questions had stirred the nation; a few years later, the continent. Today we know that those questions changed the course of both the Western church and world history. In this volume for children, Simonetta Carr tells the compelling story of this father of the Protestant Reformation, tracing his quest for peace with God, his lifelong heroic stand for God's truth, and his family life and numerous accomplishments. The Reformer's greatest accomplishment, she writes, "has been his uncompromising emphasis on the free promise of the gospel."

Matthew Henry (1662-1714) is highly-valued by contemporary preachers and Bible users. Here we get a closer look at the life of Matthew Henry by an author who has had a life-long interest in Matthew Henry and his writings. Matthew Henry was the son of a Puritan pastor who had been silenced by the government of the time. Nevertheless Philip Henry, a godly man reared his family on Christian principles and Matthew followed the Lord from an early age. Although it was difficult to find suitable ministerial training, Matthew Henry eventually studied for the ministry. With government opposition relaxing, he became a Presbyterian pastor in Chester in 1687 and later in London from 1712. It is astonishing to note the amount of preaching and writing that he accomplished despite suffering from ill-health and knowing intense sorrow in his family life.
