The Strength You Need! - Robert J. Morgan

After reviewing the 232 occurrences of the word STRENGTH in Scripture, Pastor Robert Morgan chose to concentrate on twelve clear passages that seem to have the ability to drop anchor in God's Sea of Strength. The result was one of total transformation, both for him and for his disabled wife. using his trademark style of combining page-turning stories with scriptural truth, Morgan explores the important areas of God's provision for the journey. This book will encourage you and give you confidence to look to the LORD for His daily, moment-by-moment provision of strength. God is no fair weather friend and the Word of God shows us the way to rise above what ever storms we find ourselves in. Once you read this book you are going to want to get copies for your family and friends...Guaranteed!

The most inspiring stories are the ones that are true.....

The First World War laid waste to a continent and permanently altered the political and religious landscape of the West. For a generation of men and women, it brought the end of innocence—and the end of faith. Yet for J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis, the Great War deepened their spiritual quest. Both men served as soldiers on the Western Front, survived the trenches, and used the experience of that conflict to ignite their Christian imagination. Had there been no Great War, there would have been no Hobbit, no Lord of the Rings, no Narnia, and perhaps no conversion to Christianity by C. S. Lewis.

Unlike a generation of young writers who lost faith in the God of the Bible, Tolkien and Lewis produced epic stories infused with the themes of guilt and grace, sorrow and consolation. Giving an unabashedly Christian vision of hope in a world tortured by doubt and disillusionment, the two writers created works that changed the course of literature and shaped the faith of millions. This is the first book to explore their work in light of the spiritual crisis sparked by the conflict. Wanting to know more about C.S. Lewis, I enjoyed how this book painted into the background the fabric of life events that shaped the thoughts and ideas of two of the 20th Century's greatest English apologists and writers. A must read for anyone familiar with the works of C.S. Lewis.

Recreational Reading:

"The End Times.” “The Apocalypse.” “The day of judgment.”
Terms such as these are both fascinating and frightening for any student of God’s Word. They point to key questions people have wrestled with for centuries, including:
  • What does the Bible tell us about the future?
  • How much can we understand about biblical prophecy and its application in our lives?
  • What signs and signals will precede the end of everything as we know it?
  • Which of those signs and signals have already come to pass, which are we experiencing now, and which are still to come?
In The Book of Signs, Dr. David Jeremiah offers answers to these questions and many more. Drawing from decades of study, Dr. Jeremiah explains every key sign of the approaching apocalypse and what it means for you.
The result is a truly epic and authoritative guide to biblical prophecy—a must-have resource for Christians seeking to navigate the uncertainties of the present and embrace God’s promises for the future.
