Forgiveness offers an alternative to an endless cycle of resentment and revenge, but do you really understand forgiveness? In The Scandal of Forgiveness bestselling author Philip Yancey will answer: What is forgiveness; Why is forgiveness so difficult; Why is forgiveness scandalous; and What does God have to do with forgiveness? We all live and love imperfectly. Therefore, only forgiveness will set us free. Yancey teaches us how to forgive by better understanding the clear connection between God and the gospel. You will learn: • God forgives our debts as we forgive our debtors. • only by living in the stream of God’s forgiveness will we find the strength to respond with forgiveness toward others. • the true depth of what forgiveness is and what it demands of you. • how to shed the illusions about forgiveness. • the importance of grace and what it means to be a grace-full Christian. Previously published as What’s So Amazing About Grace, The Scandal of Forgiveness is great for: • someone who wants to learn how to authentically forgive and truly understand grace. • men and women that want a closer relationship with God. • readers who enjoyed Yancey’s other books--Disappointment with God, Vanishing Grace, and Where Is God When It Hurts? We speak of forgiveness often, even believing that we are forgiving people, but do we understand the true depth of it and what it demands of us? The Scandal of Forgiveness reveals how to adopt the forgiveness the world is searching for. https://philipyancey.com/
Todd and Brooke Tilghman
Todd Tilghman and his wife, Brooke, share how decades of unrelenting challenges have taught them a joyful mindset of embracing not only winning The Voice but also "every little win" along the way. When Todd Tilghman, pastor and father of eight from Meridian, Mississippi, auditioned for The Voice, he counted it as a win simply to sing in front of an audience other than family and church members. Despite no music or vocal training, he not only made it through the blind audition--with all four celebrity judges vying to coach him--he also won the show's entire eighteenth season. Fans were drawn to Todd's tremendous joy on stage, giving them much-needed inspiration during the hard challenges of a global pandemic. In their first book, Todd and Brooke share how their focus on joy and celebrating every little win has helped them to overcome numerous challenges over their twenty-plus-year marriage. From adopting two children from South Korea to fighting for their newborn son's life to pastoring a small congregation through periods of adversity, Todd and Brooke share the lessons they've learned and the strategies that have moved them from fear to faith to ever-present joy. https://toddtofficial.com https://thomasnelson.com/p/every-little-win
Recent statistics show that over 100,000 children in Ukraine are orphaned or abandoned to state care. But the numbers don’t tell the real story; the reality for many of these kids living in orphanages can be bleak. Today, we follow an innovative outreach funded by partners of Crossroads Relief & Development into the state-run orphanages of this struggling nation. You will be encouraged to see how, when students from a local seminary spend their Saturdays pouring love into their lives, the orphans come alive. It’s a poignant and transformative ministry funded by Crossroads Relief & Development for the last 6 years, helping both orphans and students move forward into their future. http://crossroads.ca/cares/
