Explanation of the Book:

An obsessive power struggle between an editor and her millennial intern turns dangerous in this debut psychological thriller--for readers of Luckiest Girl Alive and You. Trusting you was my first mistake. To Katherine, twenty-four-year-old Lily Lunt is a typical "snowflake." It seems like the privileged, politically correct millennial will do whatever she can to make it big as a writer, including leveraging her family's connections. To Lily, Katherine Ross, a career woman in her early forties, is a holdover from another era: clueless, old-fashioned, and perfectly happy to build her success on the backs of her unpaid interns. When Lily is hired as the new intern at the magazine where Katherine is editor in chief, her arrival threatens the very foundation of the self-serving little world that Katherine has built. She finds herself obsessively drawn to Lily, who seems to be a cruel reminder of the beauty and potential she once had--things Lily uses against Katherine as she slowly begins to undermine her, sabotaging her work and turning the magazine's new publisher against her. Is Katherine being paranoid? Or is Lily seeking to systematically destroy her life? As Katherine tries to fight back, a toxic generational divide turns explosive and long-buried secrets are exposed--with deadly consequences for both. . . . Gripping and provocative, Precious You delivers an unsettling, provocative take on the contemporary workplace, turning the professional roles women play on their heads in a razor-sharp, revenge-driven thriller for our age.

Explanation of the Book:

Jesus gave us the Lord's Prayer to teach us how to live a life of prayer – with our identity as a child of God, a vision to bring God's Kingdom on earth and the mission to do God's will as it is done in heaven. We are to pray for God's daily providences, pardon and protection from evil so that God's Kingdom, power and glory will be seen in our lives and in the world.The best way to live the Lord's Prayer in our daily lives is to enthrone Jesus as Lord so that He will be our Shepherd. We can then be S.H.E.E.P. - Seeing Heaven Everyday in Every Person as our eyes are opened to see God's abundance. God wants us to live our lives out of love and not out fear. To do so we address the myths of scarcity – False Evidence Appearing Real. We are living in a meritocratic, materialistic and goal centred society. Jesus came, died and rose from the dead to be our Good Shepherd so that we can live peaceful and joyful N.A.T.O. lives – lives that are Not Attached To Outcomes. Jesus came to give us the perfect rest in a busy world. Discerning God’s guidance for our lives is not a tedious journey when we learn to dance with God. We can seek God’s perfect will through the guidance of the Holy Spirit when we see GUIDANCE as God-U-I-Dance. Our relationship with God determines the way we pray. When we see Jesus Christ as our Divine Lover, the disciplines of surrender, repentance, self-examination and confession become a rhythm of God’s grace.The Christian journey is not a walk through a rose garden for we need to face the reality of suffering, death and evil. Death is inevitable but in Christ we can have the L.A.T.E. (Love Always Trumps Evil) faith. Jesus guides us with His rod of discipline and leads us out of temptation so that we can live a life without fear of evil.Our Shepherd of Love came not only to lead us out of the valley of the shadow of death – He came to be the sacrificial Lamb of God to set us free from the prison of guilt. Heaven is not just a place we go after we die. When Jesus is our Good Shepherd, heaven is the celebration feast of our restored and redeemed fellowship with God. Jesus came to give us the Holy Communion as God’s means of grace. God’s G.R.A.C.E. is free but not cheap – it is sacrificial for it is God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. Living in crazy and capricious times lead us to F.A.I.L. – Find Answers In Life. It is folly to expect the right answers when we are asking the wrong questions. Even when we are asking the right questions, wrong answers can be the runways to find the right answer. To F.A.I.L. (Find Answers In Life) is to live out the answers to the questions that life throws at us through spiritual discipline that keeps us close the our Shepherd of Love. As we learn to rest in the Lord, we will SeeHis EternalPlanHelping Everyone Rest toDiscover peace in His everlasting HandsWith Jesus as our Shepherd of Love, we can live a life of prayer that is rooted in our identity as a child of God, filled with a vision to bring God’s kingdom on earth and a passion for the mission to do God’s will on earth as it is done in heaven. And we will be filled with the blessed assurance that goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives and we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Explanation of the Book:

**This ebook version of The Biblical Illustrator - Pastoral Commentary on 1 Peter contains nearly 1200 pages of commentary! What if Charles Spurgeon helped you prepare next Sunday’s sermon? Or what if you could talk over your preaching with Joseph Parker, Richard Baxter, Henry Ward Beecher and H. P. Liddon. Do you think it would make a difference to get the input of some of the greatest preachers who ever lived? That’s precisely what Joseph Exell had in mind when he put together the massive series of volumes called The Biblical Illustrator. In what can only be called a Herculean feat, he spent years gathering preaching notes and sermon outlines from the very best preachers of his day (in the late 1800s and early 1900s), and he did it covering every book of the Bible. And it is amazingly comprehensive. Exell approached his task by taking every verse in the Bible and seeking to discover how it has been preached in the past. Though there is plenty of exegetical material here, this is not primarily a commentary. This series is for preachers, teachers, Bible students and anyone else looking for penetrating pastoral insights from some of the all-time greats of the faith.

Editor: Moody Publishers
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Follow bestselling author, speaker, and pastor James MacDonald as he delivers the biblical hope of God’s promises in the midst of life’s storms. 2 Peter 1:3 refers to certain portions of God’s Word as exceedingly great and precious promises. Great promises are ones that don’t fall apart during difficult times; they reveal hope in the midst of the storm. Precious promises are ones that we find strong enough to hold us up and resilient enough to get us through. God’s promises become exceedingly great and precious to us when nothing else will do. By way of digging into the theology of God’s Promises, Pastor James uncovers 5 major categories of promise in the Bible and the 5 areas about which God repeatedly makes promises. From what to do with fear and doubt to God’s goodness, help, and victory—the Bible has much to say about God’s presence in our difficulty. Last year, Pastor James released When Life is Hard to point you toward hope in the midst of trials. Now, Always True will point you to God’s promises, which are always true.

After leaving a man at the altar for the second time in her life, Eva Knox decides to head home to her family’s plantation to regroup and soak in some Southern charm.

With the police putting the squeeze on her, it’s up to Eva and her sisters, Pep and Daphne, to figure out who could have possibly left a dead body in their olive grove. And they’ll have to catch the greasy killer quickly—because it looks like Eva has been picked as the murderer’s next victim...
