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

Joseph was thrown into a hole and despised. The pit. Life is reduced to one quest: to get out and never get hurt again. Not simply done. Pits have no easy exit. Joseph's story got worse before it got better. Abandonment led to enslavement and imprisonment. His life offers this lesson: in God's hands, intended evil becomes ultimate good. Someone from up there must come down here and give you a hand. God did for Joseph. And at the right time, in the right way, he will do the same for you. This Miniature EditionTM is based on the New York Times bestselling book by Max Lucado.

Title: Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear. They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn't it be great to walk out? Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, or doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, where you could trust more and fear less. Can you imagine your life without fear?

Title: Traveling Light: Releasing the Burdens You Were Never Intended to Bear

Weary travelers. You've seen them-everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels and backpacks.<br> Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop. We've all seen people like that. At times, we are people like that-if not with our physical luggage, then at least with our spiritual load. We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We're worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn't it be nice to lose some of those bags? That's the invitation of Max Lucado. With the twenty-third Psalm as our guide, let's release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear.

Title: James

Do your Monday actions reflect your Sunday worship? How about your claims to faith? Is your life full of noticeable changes and actions? James, the half-brother of Jesus, wasn't impressed with talk. He knew talk was cheap. He knew that a life of faith was about action-action that showed a difference. In his book, James boldly deals with practical issues of faith not bound by culture or place. James shows the importance of living a genuine life of faith. He is straightforward. He encourages, challenges, and confronts. His practical words are merciful admonitions to live out our faith.<br> <p><b>About the Author:</b><br> Max Lucado, Senior Minister for the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas</p>

Title: Facing Your Giants: God Still Does the Impossible

You know your Goliath. You recognize his walk, the thunder of his voice. He taunts you with bills you can't pay, people you can't please, habits you can't break, failures you can't forget, and a future you can't face. But just like David, you can face your giant, even if you aren't the strongest, the smartest, the best equipped, of the holiest. David. You could read his story and wonder what God saw in him. His life has little to offer the unstained, straight-A saint. He fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered. But for those who know the sound of Goliath, David gives this reminder: Focus on giants -- you stumble; focus on God -- your giants tumble. If you're ready to face your giants, let his story inspire you. The same God who helped him will help you.

Title: Cure for the Common Life: Living in Your Sweet Spot

Ever swung a baseball bat or paddled a Ping-Pong ball? If so, you know the oh-so-nice feel of the sweet spot. Life in the sweet spot rolls like the downhill side of a downwind bike ride. But you don't have to swing a bat or a club to know this. What engineers give sports equipment, God gave you. A zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. He tailored the curves of your life to fit an empty space in his jigsaw puzzle. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot. But if you're like 70 percent of working adults, you haven't found it. You don't find meaning in your work, or you don't believe your talents are used. What can you do? You're suffering from the common life, and you desperately need a cure. Best-selling author Max Lucado has found it. In Cure for the Common Life, he offers practical tools for exploring and identifying your own uniqueness, motivation to put your strengths to work, and the perfect prescription for finding and living in your sweet spot for the rest of your life.

Title: The Gospel of Matthew

Do you remember meeting someone who changed your life? Perhaps their smile brightened your day. Or their encouraging words were just what you needed. Maybe they introduced you to someone, knew of a job opening, or pointed you to a home that was for sale. A simple encounter could change your day or even change your life. Matthew's life was changed when he met Jesus. And this tax collector spent the rest of his life convincing others that Jesus was more than a carpenter. Matthew shares the glorious good news about Jesus' extraordinary life. His virgin birth and stormy infancy. His public ministry filled with wilderness temptations, teachings, parables, and miracles. His horrific death followed by a triumphant resurrection. His divine compassion and relentless concern. His power and authority. Matthew's Gospel-from start to finish-reminds us that Jesus is much more than just a carpenter. He is our King.<br> <p><b>About the Author:</b><br> Max Lucado, Senior Minister for the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas</p>

Title: Galatians

Whose approval do you hope to win? Friends? Co-workers? Someone in your family? What about God? Do you sometimes wonder if you need to do more to earn his approval? Religious teachers in the early church were insisting that faith was not enough, that being right with God required something more. Early Christians were almost ready to accept and follow these extra requirements. This disturbed the apostle Paul. So he reminded the believers that salvation isn't based on following a religious code. Nor is it based on what we do (or don't do) or what we know or feel. Nothing is required on our part, except to believe. In showing us the profound difference between living by law and living by grace, he reminds us that we are indeed free in Christ.<br> <p><b>About the Author:</b><br> Max Lucado, Senior Minister for the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas</p>

Title: Wild Grace: What Happens When Grace Happens

<p class="null1">Bestselling author Max Lucado explains that if teens let God’s grace change them, shape them, and strengthen them, their lives will never be the same.</p> <p>Today’s teens are being shaped by the pressures and disappointments of the world. But Max Lucado encourages them to take a close look at what can shape their hearts and their futures from the inside out—God’s grace.</p> <p>As Max explains, "God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A whitewater, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you." <i>Wild Grace</i> gives teens an understanding of how grace can change their lives in powerful ways, even when those lives are messed up, off track, or in trouble. Each chapter describes another miracle that happens when we allow God’s grace to work on us and through us:</p> <p>“Grace is God’s decision to change everything. Good-bye, earthly labels. Stupid. Unpopular. Ugly. Failure. No longer. You aren’t who they say you are. You are who He says you are. Spiritually alive. Connected to God. Amazing.”</p> <p>Teens will be convinced that God knew what He was doing when He made them and His grace is always there, ready to work wonders that are bigger than anything this world has to offer.</p>

Title: When Christ Comes

<p>Would you like to discuss the end of time?</p> <p>And feel better because of it?</p> <p>Life with no end? Space with no bounds? And what about Armageddon, The Lake of Fire, The Mark of the Beast?</p> <p>Am I supposed to feel good about all this?</p> <p>If these words could be yours, you aren't alone. There is much about the end of history we don't understand. But while thoughts on the final day will stir our questions, they needn't stir our fears.

Title: The Applause of Heaven

<p>It comes from God and it is within your reach ... The applause of heaven.</p> <p>A joy that can't be quenched? A peace that can't be broken? A happiness that can't be threatened?</p> <p>There is such a joy. It is a sacred delight, a holy gladness. You can't open your Bible without reading about it. You can't live a truly satisfying life without it. And it's nearer than you think.</p> <p>Jesus describes that sacred delight in the astonishing mountain message we now call the Beatitudes. And Max Lucado, in this classic exploration of enduring joy, shows you how this familiar but revolutionary prescription for living can bless your life beyond your wildest imagining.</p> <p>Imagine God doing what gods would do only in your wildest dreams — wearing diapers, riding donkeys, washing feet, dozing in storms — dying for you mistakes. Imagine having God as your pinch-hitter, you lawyer, your dad, you biggest fan, and you best friend. Imagine having the King of kings in your cheering section and hearing the applause of heaven ring out ... just for you.</p> <p>But don't just imagine it. Open your heart to it — the heavenly joy of knowing the God who delights in you.</p> <p>Everyone has dreamed of the applause of Heaven but never expected it. In one of Max Lucado's most inspiring books yet, he invites readers to find a joy that cannot be quenched, a peace that cannot be taken, and a happiness that cannot be threatened. </p>

Title: Come Thirsty: No Heart Too Dry for His Touch

What image best describes your heart? A water-drenched kid in front of an open fire hydrant? Or a bristled, desert tumbleweed? You're acquainted with physical thirst. Stop drinking and see what happens. Coherent thoughts vanish, skin grows clammy, and vital organs shut down. Deprive your body of necessary fluid, and it will tell you. Deprive your sould of spiritual water, and it will tell you. Dehydrated hearts send desperate messages. Snarling tempers. Waves of worry. Growing guilt and fear. Hopelessness. Resentment. Loneliness. Insecurity. But you don't have to live with a dehydrated heart. God invites you to tread your thirsty soul as you would treat your physical thirst. Just visit the WELL and drink deeply: Recieve Christ's work on the cross, the energy of his Spirit, His lordship over your life, and his unending, unfailing love. Come thirsty and drink the water of life.

Title: Just the Way You Are

One of the greatest gifts parents can give their children is the assurance that Mom and Dad love them just as they are, apart from anything that they do. But telling them once won't make it sink in. Kids need to be reminded of it over and over, until those words get inside their hearts. In the same way, children need to hear again and again that their Heavenly Father loves them and wants to spend time with them—even if they're not wonderfully talented or extremely smart or exceptionally popular. That message of God's unconditional acceptance and deep desire to enjoy a friendship with His children is at the heart of this book. Just the Way You Are, originally published by Crossway Books as Children of the King, has been newly illustrated to enchant a whole new generation of youngsters. At the same time, it gives parents and grandparents fresh opportunities to write God's never-changing desire on tender souls.

Title: He Still Moves Stones

It's what happens when obstacles prevent you from seeing what God has done for you ... He still moves stones. People with questions. The Bible is absolutely full of them. A crook on a cross. A wild man in a cemetery. A five-time divorcée. A despondent cripple. A grieving sister. A father at the end of his rope. Why are these portraits in the Bible? So we can look back in amazement at what Jesus did? No ... these aren't just Sunday school stories. They are historic moments in which a real God met real pain so we could answer the question. "Does God care when I hurt?" On every page of this powerfully moving book, Max Lucado reminds us, the God who spoke to Moses at the burning bush still speaks loudly to you today. The God who forgave King David still offers you forgiveness. The God who helped men and women in ages past still comes into your world, and he comes to do what you can't, to move the stone away so you can see his answer.

Title: Next Door Savior: Near Enough to Touch, Strong Enough to Trust

We applaud men for doing good things. We enshrine God for doing great things. But what about a man who does God things? One thing is certain. We can't ignore him. If these moments are factual, if the claim of Christ is actual, then he was, at once, man and God. The single most significant person who ever lived. Forget MVP. He is the entire league. The head of the parade? Hardly. No one else shares the street. Who comes close? Humanity's best and brightest fade like dime-store rubies next to him. Dismiss him? We can't. Resist him? Equally difficult. Why would we want to? Don't we need a God-man Savior? A just-God Jesus could make us, but not understand us. A just-man Jesus could love us, but never save us. But a God-man Jesus? Near enough to touch. Strong enough to trust. A next door Savior.

A long time ago a wise man named Shaddai built a wonderful village for children to live in. He talked to them and sang for them and told them stories. He gave them everything they needed. And with his own hands Shaddai built a protective wall around their village, rock by rock.

Title: You are mine

Max was interested in helping children understand their value-not from the world's perspective, but from God's. Wemmicksville is a land created by Eli, the "God" figure of the story. He creates each Wemmick in Wemmicksville uniquely, each with its own look and personality. Each story and video is a new adventure with the citizens of Wemmicksville. Punchinello is the central character, along with his friends Lucia, Splint, and Chip. When Punchinello strays from Eli, he begins to have problems. Only when Punchinello stays close to Eli does he clearly see how to walk through his life in Wemmicksville.

Title: If Only I Had a Green Nose

A green nose. How silly, thought Punchinello. It wouldn't make him faster, stronger, or even smarter. It would only make him greener--and make him look just like all the other Wemmicks! Why would he want that when he knows Eli made each of them different for a reason?
