<em>"My whole life has been a long wandering, a long hunger that hasn’t yet been satisfied.”</em> - Sarah's Story<br /><p><br /><strong>Everyone is waiting.</strong> We wait for a bus, a spouse, a different job, a better life. We wait for Christ. At best, it's irritating; at worst, unbearable. <strong>But what if our frustrated longings have spiritual value?</strong></p><br /><p><br />Enter four Bible heroes who waited impatiently: Sarah, Isaiah, John the Baptist and Mary. Through gripping storytelling, we immerse ourselves in their lives. We find empathy for our disappointment and doubt. We find perspective and purpose in delay. Above all, we find God in the waiting. With reflective questions and six Bible studies, <em>Those Who Wait</em> is ideal for personal devotion or group discussion.</p><br />Also suitable as an Advent devotional. RRP £9.99 / $13.99<br /><p><br /><strong>Praise for <em>Those Who Wait: </em></strong></p><br /><p><br />“This is a gentle book full of humanity, biblical integrity and unexpected humour. It hums and brims with hard-won insights for those of us who wait for miracles, those who've given up waiting for miracles but would at least appreciate a few answers, and those who would simply like a little more hope.<br />"Helpfully designed for groups as well as individuals, I have no doubt that <em>Those Who Wait</em> will bring comfort, tears of relief, and smiles of recognition to many, many people.”</p><br /><p><br /><strong>- Pete Greig,</strong> author of <em>God on Mute: Engaging the Silence of Unanswered Prayer</em>, Spokesman for 24-7 Prayer International and Pastor of Emmaus Rd, Guildford</p><br /><p><br />“Readers of <em>Those Who Wait</em> will renew their strength, they will refresh their soul, and they will reconnect to their God."<br />- <strong>Prof David T Lamb</strong>, author of <em>God Behaving Badly</em></p><br /><p><br />“Responsibly imaginative, beautifully written and readable, pastorally sensitive"<br /><br />- <strong>Dr David Wenham,</strong> New Testament Tutor and Former Vice Principal of Trinity College, Bristol</p><br /><p><br />“a book which lets the Scriptures fire your imagination as you enter into the faith journeys of four great ancient saints."<br /><br />- <strong>Mark Meynell,</strong> author of <em>The Wilderness of Mirrors</em></p><br /><p><br />"Beautiful, helpful and, most of all, encouraging.”<br /><br />- <strong>Katharine Welby-Roberts,</strong> author of <em>I Thought There Would Be Cake</em></p><br /><p><br />"The stories made me cry and made me smile... Read it to be encouraged, read it to be challenged, read it to be comforted"<br /><br />- <strong>Dr Jenni Williams,</strong> Old Testament Tutor, Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford</p><br /><p><br />“A creative, engaging and timely gift that addresses the universal challenge of waiting on God...written with a novelist's attention to detail”<br /><strong>- Ed Cyzewski,</strong> author of <em>A Christian Survival Guide</em> and <em>Flee, Be Silent, Pray</em></p><br /><p><br />“Ultimately, it is a book for all of us, as we wrestle with the kingdom of now and not yet”<br /><br />-<strong> Becky Drake,</strong> Founder of Worship for Everyone</p><br /><p><br />"This is a beautiful book – full of heartache, but also hope"<br /><br />-<strong> Emma Scrivener</strong>, author of <em>A New Day</em> and <em>A New Name</em></p><br /><p><br />“Tanya Marlow’s words sent me both to my journal and to my knees...<em>Those Who Wait</em> is such a beautiful invitation to connect with our longing, our hope, our honesty and the God who meets us in the waiting.”<br /><strong> </strong>-<strong> Idelette McVicker,</strong> Founder of SheLovesMagazine.com</p><br /><p><br />“[Tanya Marlow] brings their stories to life, all the while imbuing hope and strength in those of us who wait.

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of <i>Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, </i>and <i>The Gifts of Imperfection</i></b><br /><br /> “True belonging doesn’t require us to <i>change</i> who we are. It requires us to <i>be</i> who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In <i>Braving the Wilderness,</i> Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.<br /><br /> Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, “True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that’s rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it’s easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it’s a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It’s a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.” Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, “The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.” <br /><br /> <b>Praise for Brené Brown’s <i>Rising Strong</i></b><br /><br /> “[Brown’s] research and work have given us a new vocabulary, a way to talk with each other about the ideas and feelings and fears we’ve all had but haven’t quite known how to articulate. . . . [She] empowers us each to be a little more courageous.”<b><i>—The Huffington Post</i></b>

<b>With a scientist's mind and an animal lover's compassion, world-renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake presents a groundbreaking exploration of animal behavior that will profoundly change the way we think about animals--and ourselves.</b><br /><br />How do cats know when it's time to go to the vet, even before the cat carrier comes out? How do dogs know when their owners are returning home at unexpected times? How can horses find their way back to the stable over completely unfamiliar terrain?<br /><br />After five years of extensive research involving thousands of people who have pets and work with animals, Dr. Sheldrake proves conclusively what many pet owners already know: there is a strong connection between humans and animals that defies present-day scientific understanding. Sheldrake compellingly demonstrates that we and our pets are social animals linked together by invisible bonds connecting animals to each other, to their owners, and to their homes in powerful ways. His provocative ideas about these social, or morphic, fields explain the uncanny behavior often observed in pets and help provide an explanation for amazing animal behavior in the wild, such as migration and homing.<br /><br /><i>Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home</i> not only provides fascinating insight into animal, and human, behavior, but also teaches us to question the boundaries of conventional scientific thought, and shows that the very animals who are closest to us have much to teach us about biology, nature, and consciousness.

<b>“A new magisterial biography . . . another epic work [from Eric Metaxas].” —Hugh Hewitt<br />  <br />From #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Eric Metaxas comes a brilliant and inspiring biography of the most influential man in modern history, Martin Luther, in time for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation</b><br />  <br /> On All Hallow’s Eve in 1517, a young monk named Martin Luther posted a document he hoped would spark an academic debate, but that instead ignited a conflagration that would forever destroy the world he knew. Five hundred years after Luther’s now famous Ninety-five Theses appeared, Eric Metaxas, acclaimed biographer of the bestselling <i>Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy</i> and <i>Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery</i>, paints a startling portrait of the wild figure whose adamantine faith cracked the edifice of Western Christendom and dragged medieval Europe into the future. Written in riveting prose and impeccably researched, <i>Martin Luther</i> tells the searing tale of a humble man who, by bringing ugly truths to the highest seats of power, caused the explosion whose sound is still ringing in our ears. Luther’s monumental faith and courage gave birth to the ideals of liberty, equality, and individualism that today lie at the heart of all modern life.

<p><strong>When it comes to anxiety, depression, and stress-related illnesses, America is the frontrunner. Thankfully, there’s a practical prescription for dealing with them. <em>Anxious for Nothing, </em>the most recent book from <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author, Max Lucado, provides a roadmap for battling with and healing from anxiety. </strong></p><p><strong>Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night?</strong></p><p><strong>Is irrational worry your constant companion?</strong></p><p><strong>Could you use some calm?</strong></p><p>If the answer is yes, you are not alone. According to one research program, anxiety-related issues are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men. Stress-related ailments cost the nation $300 billion every year in medical bills and lost productivity. And use of sedative drugs like Xanax and Valium have skyrocketed in the last 15 years. Even students are feeling it. One psychologist reports that the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s. Chances are, you or someone you know seriously struggles with anxiety.</p><p>Max writes, "The news about our anxiety is enough to make us anxious.” He knows what it feels like to be overcome by the worries and fear of life, which is why he is dedicated to helping millions of readers take back control of their minds and, as a result, their lives.</p><p><em>Anxious for Nothing</em> invites readers to delve into Philippians 4:6-7. After all, it is the most highlighted passage of any book on the planet, according to Amazon:</p><p><em>Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.</em></p><p><strong>In the characteristic tone of his previous books like <em>You’ll Get Through This </em>and <em>Fearless, </em>Max guides readers through this Scripture passage and explains the key concepts of <em>celebration</em>, <em>asking for help</em>, <em>leaving our concerns</em>, and <em>meditating</em>.</strong></p><p><strong>Stop letting anxiety rule the day. Join Max on the journey to true freedom and experience more joy, clarity, physical renewal, and contentment by the power of the Holy Spirit. Anxiety comes with life. But it doesn't have to dominate your life.</strong></p>
