Maximus: A Novel Audiobook

Maximus: A Novel

Author: Richard L. Black Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: November 2015

A sweeping Christian fiction epic, Maximus is part mystery, part detective story, and filled with intrigue. General Maximus is a battle-weary commander of one of Rome’s finest legions. When he returns from a long, bloody campaign, he finds himself questioning his life. Word has reached Rome of a man named Jesus, who is causing a stir in faraway Judea. Maximus, disguised as a Jew, is sent to investigate the situation and assess his potential threat to Rome. In this innovative rendering of the story of Christ, we see Jesus from the perspective of an outsider. Stripped of his cultural identity, Maximus is therefore free to ponder whether he can believe Jesus and find a new purpose in his own life. “A sword-and-sandal epic that combines warrior odyssey with spiritual enlightenment…Engaging…the characters themselves are interesting and placed in historical contexts well…Incorporates some careful period research…Combines faith and fantasy to the maximum, taking its characters on a religious journey to find salvation.”—Foreword Reviews

The Shadow Cipher Audiobook

The Shadow Cipher

Author: Laura Ruby Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: May 2017

From National Book Award finalist and Printz Award winner Laura Ruby comes the first book in an epic alternate history series about three kids who try to solve the greatest mystery of the modern world: a puzzle and treasure hunt laid into the very streets and buildings of New York City. It was 1798 when the Morningstarr twins arrived in New York with a vision for a magnificent city: towering skyscrapers, dazzling machines, and winding train lines, all running on technology no one had ever seen before. Fifty-seven years later, the enigmatic architects disappeared, leaving behind for the people of New York the Old York Cipher—a puzzle laid into the shining city they constructed, at the end of which was promised a treasure beyond all imagining. By the present day, however, the puzzle has never been solved, and the greatest mystery of the modern world is little more than a tourist attraction. Tess and Theo Biedermann and their friend Jaime Cruz live in a Morningstarr apartment—until a real estate developer announces that the city has agreed to sell him the five remaining Morningstarr buildings. Their likely destruction means the end of a dream long held by the people of New York. And if Tess, Theo, and Jaime want to save their home, they have to prove that the Old York Cipher is real. Which means they have to solve it.

Brothers, We Are Not Professionals: A Plea to Pastors for Radical Ministry Audiobook

Brothers, We Are Not Professionals: A Plea to Pastors for Radical Ministry

Author: John Piper Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: February 2013

In this revised and expanded edition of Brothers, We Are Not Professionals that includes a new introduction and select all-new chapters, best-selling author John Piper pleads through a series of thoughtful essays with fellow pastors to abandon the professionalization of the pastorate and pursue the prophetic call of the Bible for radical ministry. We pastors are being killed by the professionalizing of the pastoral ministry, he writes. The mentality of the professional is not the mentality of the prophet. It is not the mentality of the slave of Christ. Professionalism has nothing to do with the essence and heart of the Christian ministry. The more professional we long to be, the more spiritual death we will leave in our wake. For there is no professional childlikeness, there is no professional tenderheartedness, there is no professional panting after God. Brothers, we are not professionals. We are outcasts. We are aliens and exiles in the world. Our citizenship is in Heaven, and we wait with eager expectation for the Lord (Phil. 3:20). you cannot professionalize the love for His appearing without killing it. And it is being killed. The world sets the agenda of the professional man; God sets the agenda of the spiritual man. The strong wine of Jesus Christ explodes the wine- skins of professionalism.

The Forgotten Jesus: How Western Christians Should Follow an Eastern Rabbi Audiobook

The Forgotten Jesus: How Western Christians Should Follow an Eastern Rabbi

Author: Robby Gallaty Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: July 2017

Through the years, our understanding of Jesus has been shaped by different cultural influences, and many Christians have forgotten that Jesus was a Jewish man living in a Jewish land, observing Jewish customs, and investing his life into Jewish men and women.Trading the popular but inaccurate Western perspective of the Bible for the context in which Jesus actually ministered in two thousand years ago, author Robby Gallaty reveals the fascinating Hebraic culture, customs, and nuances many Christians have never experienced or learned about. He works from the premise that we can't truly appreciate the New Testament unless we understand the Old Testament. By uncovering the teaching of the first and second century rabbis and Christian theologians, and highlighting little-known Jewish idioms and traditions, Gallaty takes Christians on a biblical journey to rediscover a forgotten Jesus from a biblical perspective, deepening your relationship with God.

Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing Audiobook

Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing

Author: Jay Stringer Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: January 2019

Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing is a ground-breaking resource that explores the "why" behind self-destructive sexual choices. The book is based on research from over 3,800 men and women seeking freedom from unwanted sexual behavior, be that the use of pornography, an affair, or buying sex. Jay Stringer's original research found that unwanted sexual behavior can be both shaped by and predicted based on the parts of our story-past and present-that remain unaddressed. When we pay attention to our unwanted sexual desires and identify the unique reasons that trigger them, the path of healing is revealed. Although many of us feel ashamed and unwanted after years of sexual brokenness, the book invites the listener to see that behavior as the very location God can most powerfully work in their lives. Counselors, pastors, and accountability partners of those who experience sexual shame will also find in this book the deep spiritual and psychological guidance they need to effectively minister to the sexually broken around them. Contains mature themes.

Author: Adam Verner, Brandon Hatmaker Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: September 2016

Purple Heart

Author: Patricia McCormick Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: February 2015

When Private Matt Duffy wakes up in an army hospital in Iraq, he's honored with a Purple Heart. But he doesn't feel like a hero. There's a memory that haunts him: an image of a young Iraqi boy as a bullet hits his chest. Matt can't shake the feeling that he was somehow involved in his death. But because of a head injury he sustained just moments after the boy was shot, Matt can't quite put all the pieces together. Eventually Matt is sent back into combat with his squad, Justin, Wolf, and Charlene, the soldiers who have become his family during his time in Iraq. He just wants to go back to being the soldier he once was. But he sees potential threats everywhere and lives in fear of not being able to pull the trigger when the time comes. In combat there is no black-and-white, and Matt soon discovers that the notion of who is guilty is very complicated indeed. National Book Award Finalist Patricia McCormick has written a visceral and compelling portrait of life in a war zone, where loyalty is valued above all, and death is terrifyingly commonplace.

The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness Audiobook

The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness

Author: Kevin DeYoung Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: August 2012

The "hole in our holiness" is that evangelicals don't look particularly holy, and, despite the flood of gospel-centered discussions, there seems to be a greater focus on personal depravity than on the pursuit of holiness. Looking to right the balances, Kevin DeYoung presents a popular-level treatment of sanctification and union with Christ, helping readers to see what matters most--being like Jesus. He shows how one can be like Christ in being joined to Christ. The market is ready for DeYoung's timely book, ready to avoid legalism and ambivalence, and they are ready for someone to articulate the inextricable relationship between grace and holiness.
