Book Summary:

Life After Death takes an in-depth look at the important issues surrounding death. Does it matter what we believe? Why do we avoid talking about it? Can we confidently assume there is life after death? This book presents the Christian view of death and what lies beyond. It doesn't avoid the difficult questions of judgment and the possibility of missing out on all that God has planned for his people. However, for those who are searching for a real relationship with the living God, Life After Death presents a glorious message of hope and certainty. You don't have to go through life with any doubt about the future. On the contrary, if you are willing to accept all that God offers, on his terms, you will be able to look forward to an endless future in which you will experience all that God, in his infinite love and wisdom, has planned for you. You will also find a hope that will transform your goals, values, and understanding of every part of this present life.

Book Summary:

Everything in our solar system casts a shadow. The Earth, the moon, and the planets cast a shadow. The only thing that does not cast a shadow is the sun. The sun shines its light on one half of the planets, while the other half is in the shade of its own shadow. All living and non-living things expose only half of themselves to the light of the sun. Their other half remains in its shadow. Plants and animals are born with a shadow, live with a shadow, and must die with a shadow. Man is born with a shadow; however, he does not have to live and die with a shadow like the rest of the living creatures. He can choose to stay confined within the shadows of earthly things or go beyond the shadows to become something like the sun. But this quest takes a little something extra than most ordinary men seem to look for or even believe is possible to achieve. Early on in childhood, Fr. Peterson wanted to fly. Little did he know that his innocent desire to fly was an extraordinary, shadowless thing called prayer. A real and very extraordinary ear heard his plea. So God's heart, the only one in nature who produces no shadow, was moved to help show him how to go beyond the shadows of worldly things, frightful things, and even deadly things.

Book Summary:

In this fearful and cynical age, when doom and gloomers forecast catastrophe and fear mongers try to get us to hedge our bets on the future with insurance policies and safety nets, we need to re-discover real hope. Lewis Smedes says, "Hope is as native to our spirits as thinking is to our brain. Keep hoping, you keep living. Stop hoping, you start dying". He shows how hope powers every good thing we accomplish and helps us overcome every bad thing we encounter. He talks about how to keep hope alive in difficult times, discern false hope from true hope, and move beyond worry to trust in God.

Book Summary:

Why do bad things happen to good people? Why is there so much suffering and injustice in the world? Are you there, God? Darrell Bowles, a former Marine and now a registered nurse, husband and father, believes in the American dream. A world-class endurance athlete, he's consumed with his goal of winning the 3,000-mile bicycle Race Across America. Then just two weeks after September 11, 2001, a stranger comes barreling through his life and his firstborn son Johnny is killed. This leaves Darrell questioning everything he thought he understood about life. Plunged into grief and desperately trying to make sense of this tragedy, he begins a journey in search of answers. This is the true story of one man's struggle to find meaning in a world of injustice, suffering and uncertainty. In "Out of the Valley of Tears," Darrell shares his own personal search for God-a story of hope, grace and the transforming power of God's love. More than a testimonial, it's the story of a journey, One Man's Journey to Truth, and in it he discovers that none of us are ever too far from home.

Book Summary:

The bestselling author, speaker, and teacher of John Paul II's Theology of the Body explores the yearning we all have for God and each other. Fill These Hearts is a book about desire. Not trivial wants or superficial cravings, but the most vital powers of body and soul, sexuality and spirituality, that haunt us and compel us on our search for something. Weaving life-altering lessons together from classical and contemporary art, pop music, movies, and the Christian mystical tradition, popular theologian Christopher West explores the ancient but largely forgotten idea that the restless, erotic yearnings we feel in both our bodies and our spirits reveal the cry of our hearts for God. Along the way, West blows the lid off the idea of Christianity as a repressive, anti-sex religion by demonstrating that Christ came to stretch and inflame our desire for love and union to the point of infinity.
