God Will Carry You Through Audiobook

God Will Carry You Through

Author: Max Lucado Narrator: Ben Holland Release Date: December 2019

When life is falling apart, God will carry you through. It has been said that everyone is either entering, in the midst of, or just exiting a trial. Popular author and pastor Max Lucado has discovered that at any given point, almost everyone is dealing with something. Whether the loss of a loved one, marriage issues, illness, job loss, or the stress of everyday life, people everywhere need the assurance that God will carry them through. Through decades of betrayal, abandonment, and false accusations, Joseph never gave up on God or his purpose. And Joseph continually trusted the sovereignty of God as Master-weaver of his life. In God Will Carry You Through, Max invites listeners to do the same-to let God's message through Joseph guide his children through tough times today. Laced throughout Joseph's story are personal testimonies by everyday people who discovered for themselves that "God had carried them through" as well as quotes and Scripture passages for meditation. This audiobook is rich in hope for finding peace and reassurance through whatever challenge you face.

God Will Use This for Good: Surviving the Mess of Life

Author: Max Lucado Narrator: Ben Holland Release Date: November 2019

Do what Joseph did. Trust in God.

You'll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times Audiobook

You'll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times

Author: Max Lucado Narrator: Ben Holland Release Date: November 2019

You'll get through this. It won't be painless. It won't be quick. But God will use this mess for good. Don't be foolish or naïve. But don't despair either. With God's help, you'll get through this. You fear you won't make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: Will this gray sky ever brighten? This load ever lighten? In You'll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. 'Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.' Max reminds listeners that God doesn't promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn't for Joseph--tossed into a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed--but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil. With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good. A study guide is available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Second Chances: More Stories of Grace Audiobook

Second Chances: More Stories of Grace

Author: Max Lucado Narrator: Ben Holland Release Date: November 2019

We humans are prone to failure. We're experts at muddying, mixing, and messing up our lives. Who among us hasn't looked up from the bottom of a pit and realized he dug it himself? Who hasn't fallen so far, messed up so badly that she thought there was no hope? And it's at these low points that we crave reminders that there's hope for the broken. No reminder is quite as poignant as a story of second chances. A story of grace in action. Who couldn't use more stories of grace like this? Second Chances is an ideal companion to GRACE: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine. Filled with biblical, contemporary, and imaginative accounts of God's grace in action pulled from Max's previously published works, Second Chances includes tales of second chances for the rebellious, prideful, failure-prone, and more. From Peter to King David to a prodigal daughter, these stories will remind listeners of the magnitude of the gospel of second chances.

How Happiness Happens: Finding Lasting Joy in a World of Comparison, Disappointment, and Unmet Expec Audiobook

How Happiness Happens: Finding Lasting Joy in a World of Comparison, Disappointment, and Unmet Expec

Author: Max Lucado Narrator: Ben Holland, Max Lucado Release Date: September 2019

Includes two audiobook-exclusives: a sermon from Max on how worship can lead to a happy heart and a conversation between Max and narrator Ben Holland! In a world searching for happiness, bestselling author Max Lucado provides a personal plan for a life filled with lasting and fulfilling joy, supported by Jesus' teaching and modern research. Do you feel happy? How long has it been since you felt a level of contagious, infectious, unflappable, unstoppable happiness? Maybe your answer is, "All the time." If so, God bless you! (And consider suggesting this book to someone who needs it.) For many of us the answer is, "Well, it's been a while. I used to be happy, but then life took its toll." Only one-third of Americans surveyed said they were happy. How can this be? Education is accessible to most. We've made advancements in everything from medicine to technology, yet 66 percent of us can't find an adequate reason to check the "yes" box on the happiness questionnaire. Worldwide, people profess that happiness is their most cherished goal. Marketers get this. "Want to be happy?" they ask. Eat at this restaurant, drive this car, wear this dress. Happiness happens when you lose the weight, get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate. It's wide, this way to happiness. Yet, for all its promise, it delivers a fragile joy; here one day, tomorrow scattered by the winds of comparison, disappointment, or unmet expectations. Max writes, "There is another option. It requires no credit card, monthly mortgage, or stroke of fortune. Age and ethnicity aren't factors . . . an unexpected door to joy." In this audiobook Max shares the unexpected path to a lasting happiness, one that produces reliable joy in any season of life. Based on the teachings of Jesus and backed by modern research, How Happiness Happens presents a surprising but practical way of living that will change you from the inside out. Reflection questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download. Also available in Spanish.

Consumed by Hate, Redeemed by Love: How a Violent Klansman Became a Champion of Racial Reconciliatio Audiobook

Consumed by Hate, Redeemed by Love: How a Violent Klansman Became a Champion of Racial Reconciliatio

Author: Thomas A. Tarrants Narrator: Ben Holland Release Date: August 2019

'Riveting, inspiring, at times hard to believe but utterly true...it gives some measure of hope in these rancorous times.' -- John Grisham How a bomb-making white supremacist, once called 'the most dangerous man in Mississippi,' met Jesus in prison and emerged a committed advocate for Christian discipleship, peace, and racial justice. As an ordinary high school student in the 1960s, Tom Tarrants became deeply unsettled by the social upheaval of the era. In response, he turned for answers to extremist ideology and was soon utterly radicalized. Before long, he became involved in the reign of terror spread by Mississippi's dreaded White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, described by the FBI as the most violent right-wing terrorist organization in America. In 1969, while attempting to bomb the home of a Jewish leader in Meridian, Mississippi, Tom was ambushed by law enforcement and shot multiple times during a high-speed chase. Nearly dead from his wounds, he was arrested and sentenced to thirty years in the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman Farm. Unrepentant, Tom and two other inmates made a daring escape from Parchman yet were tracked down by an FBI SWAT team and apprehended in hail of bullets that killed one of the convicts. Tom spent the next three years alone in a six-foot-by-nine-foot cell. There he began a search for truth that led him to the Bible and a reading of the gospels, resulting in his conversion to Jesus Christ and liberation from the grip of racial hatred and violence. Astounded by the change in Tom, many of the very people who worked to put him behind bars began advocating for his release. After serving eight years of a 35-year sentence, Tom left prison. He attended college, moved to Washington, DC, and became copastor of a racially mixed church. He went on to earn a doctorate and became the president of the C. S. Lewis Institute, where he devoted himself to helping others become wholehearted followers of Jesus. A dramatic story of radical transformation, Consumed by Hate, Redeemed by Love demonstrates that hope is not lost even in the most tumultuous of times, even those similar to our own. 'As a kid in Mississippi in the late 1960's, I remember the men of our church discussing the Klan's bombing campaign against the Jews. The men did not disapprove. Later, I would use this fascinating chapter of civil rights history as the backdrop for my novel The Chamber. Now, one of the bombers, Thomas Tarrants, tells the real story in this remarkable memoir. It is riveting, inspiring, at times hard to believe but utterly true, and it gives some measure of hope in these rancorous times.' --John Grisham 'Dramatic...Simply astonishing...Essentia for these times. If you want to understand how the evil of extremist thought works--and how the gospel of God's grace can overcome it--listen to this book.' --Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker, lead pastor of National Community Church 'Amazing...Gives hope for what God can do.' --Dr. John Perkins, president emeritus, John Perkins Foundation; co-founder emeritus, Christian Community Development Association 'A riveting narrative.' --Russell Moore, president, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention 'This gripping and inspiring story is as timely as today's headlines....Put on your seatbelt and prepare to enter into one of the most extraordinary true stories you'll ever encounter!' --Lee Strobel, best-selling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Grace 'Reveals how easily a political ideology can grow into a radical, extreme, life-taking worldview, all the while masquerading for some supposed form of a 'Christian' faith....A powerful story!' --Eric C. Redmond, associate professor of Bible, Moody Bible Institute, Chicago
