Through the Eyes of Love: Encouraging Others Through Prophetic Revelation Audiobook

Through the Eyes of Love: Encouraging Others Through Prophetic Revelation

Author: Shawn Bolz Narrator: Adam Lofbomm, Gabe Wicks, Shawn Bolz Release Date: October 2019

"But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love." -1 Corinthians 13:13 Seeing the world through a lens of love is not easy, but when you commit to this practice you will begin to see God's power move in surprising ways. Through the Eyes of Love shows us how operating from a place of love is the most effective way to walk in the Spirit. This audiobook will help you grow in spiritual authority and learn how to speak powerful words. As someone who heard God's voice at a young age, Shawn has been diligent to continue to seek the Lord's voice for more than two decades as a sought-after international teacher. In this audiobook, Shawn shares multiple first-person stories of people he has met and spoken to over the years. Whether sitting at a table eating dinner with billionaires or pulling over on the highway to give a construction worker a word of knowledge, Shawn is amazed at how often God wants to speak personally to people, from every area of life. If you pursue spiritual gifts-especially words of knowledge-you will begin to realize that knowing God's thoughts shifts the lens through which you see people and culture. In fact, being on the receiving end of a direct message from God will open your spiritual eyes. It's like seeing a color you never knew existed. As you sincerely pray and ask God what He wants to say to your coworkers, your neighbors, and your city, you will be surprised at how often He speaks.

The Healing Organization: Awakening the Conscience of Business to Help Save the World Audiobook

The Healing Organization: Awakening the Conscience of Business to Help Save the World

Author: Michael Gelb, Raj Sisodia Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Josh Childs Release Date: September 2019

The image of modern corporations has been shaped by a focus on profits over people and the environment, but this approach to capitalism is no longer viable. We are at an inflection point where business must take the lead in healing the crises of our time. The Healing Organization shows how corporations can become healing forces. Conscious Capitalism pioneer Raj Sisodia and organizational innovation expert Michael J. Gelb were inspired to write The Healing Organization because of the epidemic of unnecessary suffering connected with business, including the destruction of the environment; increasing numbers living paycheck-to-paycheck and barely surviving (despite working full-time or even multiple jobs); rising rates of depression and stress leading to chronic health problems; and because the enmity and dividedness between those who champion unfettered capitalism and those who advocate socialism is exacerbating rather than solving our problems. Based on extensive in-depth interviews and inspiring case studies, the authors show how companies such as Shake Shack, Hyatt, KIND Healthy Snacks, Eileen Fisher, H-E-B, FIFCO, Jaipur Rugs and DTE Energy are healing their employees, customers, communities and other stakeholders. They represent a diverse sampling of industries and geographies, but they all have significant elements in common, besides being profitable enterprises: Their employees love coming to work.They have passionately loyal customers.They make a significant positive difference to the communities they serve.They preserve and restore the ecosystems in which they operate.In a world that urgently needs healing on many levels, this is a movement whose time has come,. This audiobook shows how it can be done, how it is being done, and how you can begin to do it too.

The Honest Guide to Church Planting: What No One Ever Tells You about Planting and Leading a New Chu Audiobook

The Honest Guide to Church Planting: What No One Ever Tells You about Planting and Leading a New Chu

Author: Tom Bennardo Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Tom Bennardo Release Date: August 2019

Church planting has become a cottage industry. National conferences, hip planting organizations, and all-in-one resource kits celebrate the thrill of pioneering a church and inspire visions of glorious victories. Yet few who respond to the call are warned what they’ll actually encounter: the relentless opposition they’ll endure; the eventual scattering of their entire core group; the failure of their tried-and-true, field-tested system. Here’s the dirty little secret of church planting: the roadside is strewn with casualties. Many have closed their churches. Some left ministry permanently. Others abandoned the faith altogether. Church planting is at once the greatest and most grueling ministry work on earth. This audiobook is for those toiling in the trenches, those about to bail out, and those considering jumping in. It’s for the church planters laboring and struggling, seeing little movement, and wondering what they’re doing wrong or why God is failing them. It’s also for mother churches, planting organizations, and denominations, as a challenge to rethink and re-calibrate the way they approach and measure planting endeavors. The Honest Guide to Church Planting is a fresh and candid conversation about the challenges and joys of planting new churches. Tom Bennardo speaks the truth so that those involved in church planting can embrace a more accurate and realistic picture of what planting a church is really like; one that not only enables them to survive, but to thrive in this wondrous work.

Author: Becket Cook Narrator: Gabe Wicks, John Behrens Release Date: July 2019

The powerful, dramatic story of how a successful Hollywood set designer whose identity was deeply rooted in his homosexuality came to be suddenly and utterly transformed by the power of the gospel. When Becket Cook moved from Dallas to Los Angeles after college, he discovered a socially progressive, liberal town that embraced not only his creative side but also his homosexuality. He devoted his time to growing his career as a successful set designer and to finding 'the one' man who would fill his heart. His life centered around celebrity-filled Hollywood parties and he traveled to society hot-spots around the world--until a chance encounter with a pastor at an LA coffee shop one morning changed everything. In A Change of Affection, Becket Cook shares his testimony as someone who was transformed by the power of the gospel. His dramatic conversion to Christianity and subsequent seminary training inform his views on homosexuality--personally, biblically, theologically, and culturally--and his compelling audiobook guides listeners through this complex and controversial issue while revealing how to lovingly engage with those who disagree. Provocative, genuine, and deeply faithful, A Change of Affection is a timely and indispensable resource for anyone who desires to understand more fully one of the most common and difficult stumbling blocks to faithfully following Christ today.

What Made Jesus Mad?: Rediscover the Blunt, Sarcastic, Passionate Savior of the Bible Audiobook

What Made Jesus Mad?: Rediscover the Blunt, Sarcastic, Passionate Savior of the Bible

Author: Tim Harlow Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Josh Childs Release Date: June 2019

Tim Harlow, senior pastor of Parkview Christian Church, helps Christians rediscover the passionate savior of the Bible who is still relevant today. For years Christians have asked, 'What would Jesus do?' But what if we asked a better, more illuminating question: "What made Jesus mad?" As much as we love a gentle, sweet image of Jesus, that picture isn't complete. Jesus got deeply angry at times. That shouldn't surprise us--but who he was mad at, and why, might. Jesus was most angry with people whose attitudes got in the way of his purpose: to seek and to save the lost, to unite us with God's amazing love. So, when he saw hypocrisy, greed, judging, and lack of mercy coming from the hearts of people who supposedly followed God and as a result pushed people away from him, Jesus went into orbit. Do we feel the same way? Whatever the problem--tolerating injustice, shunning sinners, or ignoring the least among us--What Made Jesus Mad? opens our eyes to the issues that most angered Jesus and that should anger Christians as we align our hearts with his and get back to actually following the Savior.

The Fool and the Heretic: How Two Scientists Moved beyond Labels to a Christian Dialogue about Creat Audiobook

The Fool and the Heretic: How Two Scientists Moved beyond Labels to a Christian Dialogue about Creat

Author: Darrel R. Falk, Todd Charles Wood Narrator: Gabe Wicks, John Behrens, John Watson Release Date: February 2019

The Fool and the Heretic is a deeply personal story told by two respected scientists who hold opposing views on the topic of origins, share a common faith in Jesus Christ, and began a sometimes-painful journey to explore how they can remain in Christian fellowship when each thinks the other is harming the church. To some in the church, anyone who accepts the theory of evolution has rejected biblical teaching and is therefore thought of as a heretic. To many outside the church as well as a growing number of evangelicals, anyone who accepts the view that God created the earth in six days a few thousand years ago must be poorly educated and ignorant--a fool. Todd Wood and Darrel Falk know what it's like to be thought of, respectively, as a fool and a heretic. This audiobook shares their pain in wearing those labels, but more important, provides a model for how faithful Christians can hold opposing views on deeply divisive issues yet grow deeper in their relationship to each other and to God. Discussion questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Irresistible Faith: Becoming the Kind of Christian the World Can't Resist Audiobook

Irresistible Faith: Becoming the Kind of Christian the World Can't Resist

Author: Scott Sauls Narrator: Charles Richards, Gabe Wicks Release Date: January 2019

'I love everything that Scott Sauls writes.' -- Christine Caine What if Christians became the best advertisement for Jesus? Jesus said his followers would be a light to the world and a city on a hill--a warmly inviting, neighbor-loving, grace-and-truth filled destination for all. He envisioned his followers as life-giving neighbors, bosses, employees, and friends, the kind of people who return even insults with kindness and persecution with prayers. Rooted in biblical convictions, they would extend love, empathy, and care to one another as well as to those who don't share their beliefs. Over time their movement would become irresistible to every nation, tribe, and tongue. Irresistible Faith is a blueprint for pursuing this vision in our current moment, of redeemed individuals and a renewed community working for a restored world. This is a way of being that gives a tired, cynical world good reason to pause and reconsider Christianity--and to start wishing it was true. 'I miss the kind of church Scott describes in this book, and I don't think I am alone.' -- Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz and Building a StoryBrand 'An important call to resist the urge to lobby and position ourselves, but rather to be driven by gospel-powered love.' -- Raechel Myers, founder and CEO of She Reads Truth 'An antidote to much that is wrong with our western, American version of Christianity. ' -- Gabe and Rebekah Lyons, authors and founders of Q Ideas
