Knowing Jesus: Living by His Name by Robby Gallaty
Understanding the context in which Jesus lived sheds fresh light on His teaching, miracles, and identity.  John wrote the Fourth Gospel, which refuted heretical teaching that was creeping into the church, so that we could know and believe in Christ.  Today we still find ourselves facing countless opinions about the identity of Jesus.  The book of John provides clear answers to the question, “Who is Jesus?”

Marriage & Relationships

From The Beginning
Pastor J.D. Greear (newly-elected President of the Southern Baptist Convention) looks at God’s design for love, relationships, and sex. There was once a time when talking about sex was taboo. That’s certainly not our society today. But the louder the conversation gets, the more obvious it is that most of us have no idea what we’re talking about. With “From the Beginning,” we take a candid look at sexual relationships—from the ones that destroy us to the ones that give us life.

Fight Back with Joy by Margaret Feinberg
In this study, Margaret reveals how joy is more than whimsy.  It is the weapon you can use to fight life’s battles.  It will help you expand your joy threshold by awakening to God’s fierce love for you; escape fear and regret by applying biblical strategies to whatever crisis you are facing; overcome depression as you re-ignite your imagination for laughter and celebration; discover freedom from the past by learning how to turn mourning into joy; and rise above endless demands and become more winsome, cheerful, and thankful.  No matter what your circumstances, you can practice defiant joy.  When you do, you will embrace a life that is richer and fuller than you’ve ever known before – a life radiant with joy.
