The purpose of this book is to awaken the church in this country to see that God is calling for a radical change of heart that will result in entering into the reality of being the body and the bride of Christ. Inspired by the centurion in Matthew and Luke’s Gospels, the book uses an analogy of the practices of armies since Roman times with God’s plan for his church in the cosmic war against the forces of evil. The book shows the absolute need for churches and individuals to prioritise receiving and obeying their particular stream of orders from the Commander-in-Chief. Then Jesus will be able to lead us as a regular army (and not just as guerrilla fighters) in a major campaign that will be revival!

From the author of Truth Be Told (formerly titled Are You Sleeping)—now an Apple TV series of the same name—comes a cautionary tale of oversharing in the social media age for fans of Jessica Knoll and Caroline Kepnes’s You. Everyone wants new followers…until they follow you home. Audrey Miller has an enviable new job at the Smithsonian, a body by reformer Pilates, an apartment door with a broken lock, and hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers to bear witness to it all. Having just moved to Washington, DC, Audrey busies herself impressing her new boss, interacting with her online fan base, and staving off a creepy upstairs neighbor with the help of the only two people she knows in town: an ex-boyfriend she can’t stay away from and a sorority sister with a high-powered job and a mysterious past. But Audrey’s faulty door may be the least of her security concerns. Unbeknownst to her, her move has brought her within striking distance of someone who’s obsessively followed her social media presence for years—from her first WordPress blog to her most recent Instagram Story. No longer content to simply follow her carefully curated life from a distance, he consults the dark web for advice on how to make Audrey his and his alone. In his quest to win her heart, nothing is off-limits—and nothing is private. With “compelling, suspenseful” (Liz Nugent) prose, Kathleen Barber’s electrifying new thriller will have you scrambling to cover your webcam and digital footprints.
Jesus said, Follow me. So where did everyone go? The call to follow is clear. The path, however, particularly in the Western world, is not often traveled. While the call to discipleship is far from easy, it s not complex. Despite its clarity, both survey results and observation show that we are simply not becoming more like Jesus. What s your plan to follow Jesus? Programmed approaches to discipleship of various kinds tend to fall short. A certain program might work well for some, but that same program seems to be nearly impossible for others. In Follow Me, Brian Kannel challenges you to move beyond the programs. Rather than detailing a specific structure, he outlines seven broad values, and those values form a constantly moving process of growth in faith. Follow Me tells the story of one local church seeking to get serious about discipleship, and calls each of us to do the same thing. Will you follow Him? Brian Kannel is the Lead Pastor of York Alliance Church, a growing cell church in south central Pennsylvania. He is also the author of numerous study guides, including Discipleship According to Jesus and Up in Smoke: A Study of Ecclesiastes. Brian and his wife Amanda live in York, PA with their four children. "
On a summer day in 1946 Sally Werner, the precocious young daughter of hardscrabble Pennsylvania farmers, secretly accepts her cousin's invitation to ride his new motorcycle. Like so much of what follows in Sally's life, it's an impulsive decision with dramatic and far-reaching consequences. Soon she abandons her home to begin a daring journey of self-creation, the truth of which she entrusts only with her granddaughter and namesake, six decades later. But when young Sally's father -- a man she has never known -- enters her life and offers another story altogether, she must uncover the truth of her grandmother's secret history. Boldly rendered and beautifully told, in Follow Me Joanna Scott has crafted a paean to the American tradition of re-invention and a sweeping saga of timeless and tender storytelling.

Followers of Christ yearn to see the world changed in compassionate, positive, effective ways. As prophetic voices, Shane Claiborne and John Perkins lead the way in this move to be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus. One is young; the other is decades older. One is a self - proclaimed reformed redneck who grew up in the hills of Tennessee and now lives in inner - city Philadelphia; the other is an African - American civil rights leader who was almost beaten to death by police in Mississippi, and went on to found a reconciliation movement and counsel three American presidents. Claiborne and Perkins draw on more than a century of combined following and learning, activating and leading. Together they craft a timely message for ordinary people willing to take radical steps to see real change happen. They start with Moses as a model and proceed to re - imagine the roles of leading and following in a world desperate for freedom.
