Deep within every human heart lies a created hunger for the heavenly mountains of God's presence. The lungs of our soul ache to breathe the air of eternity. We thirst for waters that stream forth from divine springs. A divine restlessness exists within the innermost chambers of our soul, stirring us to seek an intimate knowing of God as our Father. Jesus said that His deepest desire was that we might know His Father as He did! He was born to show us the Father...and died that we might come to know Him personally. Jesus seeks to introduce us to a life lived with the Father-a life of ongoing, moment-by moment intimacy on all levels of humanness- mind, heart, soul, and will.
Fathering is one of the most basic and profound human activities. Yet in addition to its many joys, fatherhood is often freighted with longing, sadness, anger, and misunderstanding. Most of us, men and women alike, are acutely aware of how difficult it is to father well, year after year, until, and even after, children are grown. At the same time, the essential relationships between men and women and their children are under stress these days as never before, subject to the pressures of work, money, divorce, remarriage, and adoption. As a result, many fathers struggle with deep uncertainties about their parenting abilities. Meanwhile, society's definitions of masculinity appear ever more fluid, negotiable, and unreachable in today's media-saturated culture, which endlessly exposes men (and women) to a stream of images celebrating violence, war, hypermasculinity, athletic ability, corporate competition, alternative life-styles, "metrosexuality," and triumphant materialism. Who, men might rightfully ask, are we expected to be? Do various pop-cultural definitions of masculinity really reflect what it is to be a man? What in men's true natures helps them be good fathers? Can aggression be useful? What masculine traits do fathers need to guard -- and guard against? How do men love their children, and how is being a father very different from and no less essential than being a mother? And how can women understand how men experience fatherhood? This is the rich social reality that Dr. Mark O'Connell, a psychotherapist and father of three, addresses in his provocative, brilliant, and wise book. Drawing on both his professional case histories and personal experience, O'Connell describes the internal conflicts that many men feel about the difficulties of being a father but which they are often unable to discuss easily. Such issues include questions about authority, discipline, intimacy, physical contact, and sexuality. In ways that are distinctly masculine, O'Connell says, fa
Get to know God as the generous Father who loves to give good things to his children. The great I AM, the true and living God, is a God who has the glorious habit of going about doing good to people, especially to His people. He gets glory from us by doing good to us. Many Christians do not know God like this. God doesn't want you to remain unacquainted with Him as the God whom the apostle James winsomely describes as 'the constantly giving God.' Just the opposite. He longs for you to know Him as the God who is eager to do good things for you, like helping you say 'No!' to temptation, answering your big prayers, continuously forgiving your sins, enabling you to conquer fear, and giving you wisdom in decision making, to mention but a few examples. In Good, Good Father C. L. Chase lays out three steps to knowing God as He wants to be known. Firstly, you must immediately begin making a big deal of the truth most Christians know but fail to take seriously. Secondly, you must begin emphasizing the Father's method of doing good to you. Thirdly, you must begin using His promises to experience Fatherly good now. Your Heavenly Father wants you to live abundantly. His Fatherhood magnifies His love for you. He loves you intensely, openly, responsibly, enduringly, glorifying-ly. C. L. Chase's book will help you to get to know God like this. Contents Foreword by Dr. D.

From the creator and writer of the Emmy Award-winning series Fargo, based on the Oscar-winning Coen Brothers film. An ordinary boy with an ordinary life stands accused of killing the next president of the United States. WHAT HAPPENED? Dr Paul Allen is a well-respected man. He lives a happy, comfortable life with his second wife and their family. Until the night when a knock at the door blows his world apart: a hugely popular presidential candidate has been shot, and they say the young man who pulled the trigger is Paul's son. Daniel, the only child from his first, failed marriage, was always a good kid and Paul is convinced his quiet boy is not capable of murder. Overwhelmed by a vortex of feelings, Paul embarks on a mission to understand what happened and why. Following the trail of his son's journey across America, he is forced to re-examine his life as a husband and a parent, and every decision he ever made. What follows is a powerfully emotional and suspense-filled quest that keeps you guessing to the very end. 'Monsters don't just become monsters, after all.'

Jesus said, "No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son". He went on to give one exception, "and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."

Insightful, illuminating and thoroughly thought-provoking, Our Good Father will grab your attention from the first page and won't let go. Be prepared to question your perceptions about God, as you get to know the true Father as seen through the eyes of Jesus. A delightful sense of humor and engaging style of writing make this book, not only thought provoking, but inspiring and entertaining as well.

In the ancient world, something extraordinary happened when God’s people gathered to worship him. It was more than just singing; it was time to fully embody praise to God for who he is and what he had done. In the Book of Psalms, there are seven Hebrew words that are translated into the English word “praise,” each of which represents a different aspect of what it means to truly praise God. In this four-session video based Bible study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), pastor Darren Whitehead shares insights on how to deepen your practice of praise by uncovering the true meaning behind each of these Hebrew words, and Chris Tomlin shares how those insights take shape in the stories behind many of his worship songs, including “How Great Is Our God,” “Holy Is the Lord,” “I Lift My Hands,” and “Good Good Father.” Whether for use in your small group or your own personal use, Holy Roar provides insight and encouragement to deepen your practice of praise. Follow along as Chris and Darren lead you to the throne room of God. Join their invitation. Become a part of the Holy Roar.
