Sacred Companions: The Gift of Spiritual Friendship & Direction Audiobook

Sacred Companions: The Gift of Spiritual Friendship & Direction

Author: David G. Benner Narrator: George W. Sarris Release Date: February 2020

We need companions on our spiritual journey. The modern world has taught us to value autonomy and individualism. Our churches often see spirituality as personal and private. But we cannot go long in our Christian pilgrimage before realizing that isolation leads to spiritual barrenness. We soon discover that our souls long for accompaniment, intimacy and spiritual friendship. As a result, many Christians today are rediscovering the ancient practice of spiritual direction. In this inviting guide, David G. Benner introduces listeners to the riches of spiritual friendship and direction, explaining what they are and how they are practiced. Spiritual direction moves beyond mere moral lifestyle accountability and goes deeper than popular notions of mentoring or discipling. Through prayerful, guided attunement to God's activity, sacred companions provide care for the soul. If we are to experience significant spiritual formation and growth, our souls must be nurtured through spiritual companions. Benner, well-accustomed to God's work through relationships, models the kind of traveling companion who can move us toward deeper intimacy with God.

Shaped by Suffering: How Temporary Hardships Prepare Us for Our Eternal Home Audiobook

Shaped by Suffering: How Temporary Hardships Prepare Us for Our Eternal Home

Author: Jenny Abel, Kenneth Boa Narrator: William Sarris Release Date: February 2020

'The God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.' 1 Peter 5:10 Suffering comes to us all. It may be disease or debilitation, pain or persecution. Our difficulties may be invisible to others or impossible to hide. Sometimes we suffer because of our Christian witness. Other times it's simply part of living in a fallen world. But suffering affects us all, in ways we don't always anticipate. Christians today are often not prepared to suffer well and have a short-sighted view of pain and trials. Ken Boa shows how God uses suffering to shape his children for eternity and to grow them in Christlike character. The book of 1 Peter tells us suffering is both a guarantee and comparatively brief; we shouldn't be surprised when it comes to us. The nature of our affliction is not as important as our response to it. God is at work through our hardships and wants to use them to prepare us for eternal life. Suffering can make us bitter or better. Rediscover living hope, present joy, and a glorious future.

Naked and Unafraid: 5 Keys to Abandon Smallness, Overcome Criticism, and Be All You Are Meant to Be Audiobook

Naked and Unafraid: 5 Keys to Abandon Smallness, Overcome Criticism, and Be All You Are Meant to Be

Author: Kevin Gerald Narrator: Kevin Gerald Release Date: February 2020

Celebrate a vulnerable and open life by overcoming the fear of criticism to start living the life God intended. Fear of criticism has turned into a massive epidemic harder than ever to overcome. It prevents people from speaking up; it's why most people struggle to make decisions; it's why we're uncomfortable with vulnerability and openness; and it's why so many are unable to meet their full potential. But it doesn't have to be that way. Through the Bible story of King David dancing naked in the streets while his distant, guarded, and critical wife watches from a window, Naked and Unafraid provides a visual contrast of these two characters that sheds light on the way we all approach life and explains how the fear of criticism impacts our lives much more than we realize or are willing to admit. God didn't create us to live guarded, isolated lives. Our greatest fulfillment isn't found in the window. It's found in the street. Everything in our lives, including our relationships, our work, our emotional and spiritual health, gets better in a place of openness and vulnerability. But that doesn't mean it's easy. . . because it's not. Vulnerability is risky. Exposure is scary. Naked and Unafraid pushes readers to:Find the courage to not let criticism control or determine who they are and what they do.Stop living in the shallow end of relationships and experience the rewards that true vulnerability can bring.Abandon smallness and live the life they were born to live.Discover how the fear of criticism diminishes in direct proportion to understanding it.Reject the limitations and inhibitions of 'window living,' so they can experience the freedom and rewards of 'street life.'Confront their own worst critic that counts them out of what God has included them in. God will help you move away from window watching, and toward street dancing. Know who He says you are, and live in that freedom!

Interview with the Antichrist Audiobook

Interview with the Antichrist

Author: Jeff Kinley Narrator: James Parker Release Date: February 2020

The story you are about to hear is told from the perspective of Julien, a young journalist in close proximity to a person the Bible calls the "Beast." Julien will give us a window into the character of the Antichrist and how our last days could unfold according to Scripture's ultimate plot. This imagined prophetic narrative will also reveal how this coming prince may alter reality and impact humankind---and eventually transform into the most malevolent human in history. But what can be known about this man? What does the Bible actually say about this nefarious individual? How close are we to his unveiling? More than a suspenseful mystery, however, this speculative account will arouse your prophetic curiosity, whetting your appetite for more information, more solid biblical food on the subject. And you'll find that in the last section of the audiobook. Your imagination and curiosity will soar in this raw, rugged, often shocking account of the rise of the Antichrist. He is real, my friend. And he is coming.

The Hope of Glory: Reflections on the Last Words of Jesus from the Cross Audiobook

The Hope of Glory: Reflections on the Last Words of Jesus from the Cross

Author: Jon Meacham Narrator: Jon Meacham Release Date: February 2020

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham explores the seven last sayings of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels, combining rich historical and theological insights to reflect on the true heart of the Christian story. For Jon Meacham, as for believers worldwide, the events of Good Friday and Easter reveal essential truths about Christianity. A former vestryman of Trinity Church Wall Street and St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, Meacham delves into that intersection of faith and history in this meditation on the seven phrases Jesus spoke from the cross. Beginning with "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do" and ending with "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit," Meacham captures for the reader how these words epitomize Jesus's message of love, not hate; grace, not rage; and, rather than vengeance, extraordinary mercy. For each saying, Meacham composes an essay on the origins of Christianity and how Jesus's final words created a foundation for oral and written traditions that upended the very order of the world. Writing in a tone more intimate than any of his previous works, Jon Meacham returns us to the moment that transformed Jesus from a historical figure into the proclaimed Son of God, worshiped by billions.
