New Book: Serving Without Sinking

BLOG Serving Without Sinking

“Many of us are serving, and feel like we’re sinking. We feel joyless, weary and burdened.

John Hindley shows how Jesus was telling the truth when he offered people an “easy yoke”—a way of serving him that is joyful and liberating. He explains why serving is so often joyless—and how our identity in Christ changes everything.

If you are serving, but sometimes feel as though you’re sinking… you need this book!

If you know someone who has burn out, or is heading in that direction… they need this book too.

Serving with sinking
• Is written in a personal, warm, gospel-hearted style.
• Encourages readers to see not only how they serve, but WHY they serve
• Points Christians away from themselves and back to Jesus
• Frees people from the burdens of joyless, duty-based serving”

Free Audiobook: A Lifelong Love

BLOG A Lifelong Love

For this month, Christian Audio is offering Gary Thomas’s A Lifelong Love for free; you can download it here.

“Gary Thomas believes couples often settle for too little when it comes to marriage. We fail to understand how deeply God cares about our spouse. We diminish our need to not only understand what biblical love really is, but also to become a people who excel at it. We let ourselves drift apart instead of making the daily choices to grow closer together.

Whether your marriage needs a complete makeover, a touch up, or just a new purpose,A Lifelong Love promises to set your relationship on an entirely new dimension. You will never look at worship or your spouse in the same way again. You will understand how living for that day will so radically transform the decisions you make this day. And Gary will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment.

Thirty years of study and two decades of working with couples has led Gary Thomas to his most significant book yet on the relationship between husband and wife. Find out for yourself what all the fuss is about—and why A Lifelong Love is sure to challenge the way the church talks about marriage.”
