When the Israelites exclaimed, "Here are your gods!" at the sight of the golden calf, they were attempting to hold on to the God of their history while fashioning idols for their own purposes. In today's Western world, plenty of shiny false gods still hold power--idols of prosperity, nationalism, and self-interest. Christians desperately need to name and expose these idols. We must retrieve the biblical emphasis on idolatry and apply it anew in our journey of following Jesus. In "Here Are Your Gods," Old Testament scholar Christopher J. H. Wright combines a biblical study of idolatry with practical discipleship. He calls readers to consider connections between Old Testament patterns and today's culture, especially recurring temptations to trust in political power. Now as much as ever, we need a biblically informed understanding of the many ways humans make gods for themselves, the danger of idols, and how God calls us to join him in the battle against idolatry as part of his ongoing mission to be known and worshiped by all peoples.

It felt as though every nerve in my body was popping. Imagine large strong hands slowly applying pressure while breaking a family-size package of uncooked, dry spaghetti. I was the spaghetti. Breaking down one piece at a time. This is how Juanita Rasmus begins the wise, frank, and witty account of what she later called "The Crash" and what her counselor labeled "a major depressive episode." This experience landed Juanita, a busy pastor, mother, and community leader, in bed. In addition to exhaustion and depression, on the spiritual front she experienced a dark night of the soul. When everything in her life finally came to a stop, she found that she had to learn to be--with herself and with God--all over again. Pastor Juanita writes from her life with kind attention to the life of the reader. She offers both practical and spiritual insights but never pat answers. If you are longing for a trustworthy companion through dark days, this book is here for you. Each chapter includes life-giving spiritual practices to help you discover your own new ways of being.

    Leads women through this biblical story of loyalty and love

    The Discover Together Bible Study series equips readers with meaningful devotion, biblical principles, and timeless life lessons from books of the Bible.

    Many women live with a relentless flow of anxious thoughts that distract, intrude, and exhaust--and this leaves little time to worship God or serve those around us. Trusted leader Sue Edwards points to an unexpected biblical story that can lead to a way out of these anxieties: the book of Ruth.

    Unlike how it is often presented, Ruth's story isn't a Hollywood romance and Boaz isn't the hero. God is. He shows tender care for Naomi and Ruth, remaining faithful even in hopeless situations. Moreover, their lives demonstrate how he consistently lifts women into significant roles in his redemption story, whether or not they're considered culturally important.

    Written for women of all generations and walks of life, Ruth is an inclusive Bible study with flexible format and multilevel questions to fit varied lifestyles.

    Look for the entire line of inductive Bible studies by Sue Edwards at DiscoverTogetherSeries.com. Other books in this extensive series include Hosea, Proverbs, Luke, and Ephesians.
