Real: The Surprising Secret to Deeper Relationships

Coming October 1, 2018 from The Good Book Co.

All of us long for authentic friendships. But many of us struggle to find them. In a world of carefully curated social media and picture-perfect self-projection, might it be that we're distancing ourselves from the very closeness we crave? 

The surprising secret to deeper relationships isn't really about relationships at all--it's about repentance. And that's not as weird as it might sound. Discover how getting real with God will free you to get real with others, and empower you to create genuine community in an "I'm fine" culture. 

A Christ-Centered Wedding: Rejoicing in the Gospel on Your Big Day

Wedding planning has spawned a major industry. The average cost of the occasion now exceeds $25,000, and societal pressure to create the “perfect day” is so strong that even Christian couples forget what God originally intended for the sacred marriage ceremony.

While paying attention to the good fun that follows that special proposal (the dress, the flowers, the cake, the gatherings, etc.), A Christ-Centered Wedding first serves as a guide to believers who want their wedding to portray the relationship of Christ with the church and to reflect the gospel to all in attendance.
