(And What to Do If You Didn't): Ten Men Who Will Ruin Your Life by Stephen Arterburn, Meg J., Dr Rinck,
Margaret Josephson Rinck

The Purpose-Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For?
by Rick Warren

Pastor of Saddleback Church, a Southern Baptist mega-church in southern California with weekly attendance of more than 15,000, Warren now applies his highly successful "purpose-driven" framework, developed in the best-seller The Purpose-Driven Church, to individual experience. The same principles Warren has taught to thousands of pastors to help churches be healthy and effective can also drive lives, he says. The book argues that discerning and living five God-ordained purposes-worship, community, discipleship, ministry and evangelism-is key to effective living.

A Woman's Search for Worth
by Deborah Newman
Many women adopt the world's idea of what women should be--young, beautiful, rich, powerful. Others measure themselves in more traditional roles--submissive, gentle, and hospitable. A Woman's Search for Worth explores the topic of worth in the light of a relationship with Christ. Chapters such as "What Makes Women Tick," "Understanding Men," and "The Healing Power of Forgiveness" help women discover their true feminine identity and develop a closer intimacy with God. An updated revision of Then God Created Woman.

More Jesus, Less Religion: Moving from Rules to Relationship
by Stephen Arterburn, Jack Felton

Now those bound by legalism can experience God's grace anew and avoid the pitfalls of a toxic faith. A decade ago, best-selling authors Stephen Arterburn and Jack Felton exposed the dangers of what they termed "toxic faith" - a religion based on legalism and works. As a result they helped countless believers to understand and overcome their religious misconceptions. Now, drawing upon an additional ten years of experience and observation, the authors go one step further, offering new insights and a positive approach to the dilemma in this long-awaited follow-up to their groundbreaking work. Readers will be set free from manmade rules, "churchianity," and legalistic faith. They will learn to recognize serious misinterpretations of vital biblical concepts such as "accountability." They will pursue other-focused living (loving and serving others) as a hallmark of authentic faith. And they will return to the roots of a strong, obedient, yet grace-filled relationship with their Creator. To all who want to enter into deeper joy, stronger obedience, greater influence, and a healthier experience of God, More Jesus, Less Religion points the way back to the grace of the Lord and shows what it takes to avoid the pitfalls of a toxic faith.

Note: the absence of a cover image does not mean that a book is less worthy of being read. The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges
Holiness. The Christian's joint venture with God -- "Be holy, for I am holy," commands God to His people. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian's daily life. According to Jerry Bridges, that's because we're not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do-and what we should accept responsibility for ourselves. Whether you're continuing your pursuit of holiness or just beginning, the principles and guidelines in The Pursuit of Holiness will challenge you to obey God's command of holiness. This book will help you understand how God has equipped us to lead holy lives. It provides guidelines for determining right from wrong, and shows how habits and personal discipline play a part in holy living.

Note: the absence of a cover image does not mean that a book is less worthy of being read. Forgiveness: A Gift You Give Yourself by Maureen Burns -- This book is truly a gem! Forgiveness is a subject that we all must deal with; our well-being depends upon our ability to forgive. We are often told that we must forgive, no matter how deep the pain, no matter how vile the transgression, but no one ever explained to us how to forgive.

Toxic Faith by Stephen Arterburn, Jack Felton
Toxic Faith distinguishes between a healthy faith and a misguided religiosity that traps believers in an addictive practice of religion. It shows how unbalanced ministries, misguided churches, and unscrupulous leaders can lead their followers away from God and into a desolate experience of religion that drives many to despair.

He says, 'I'd like to tell you a few stories from my life, some wrong roads I've traveled, some right decisions I've made, and how God has often taken my mistakes and turned them into something good.

Wilkinson -- Even well-versed Biblical scholars might be perplexed if asked about Jabez, a little-known man listed in 1 Chronicles, chapter 4. Yet his simple petition is the cornerstone of The Prayer of Jabez and has become a call to live a more "blessed life" for countless readers. The prayer is a simple one: "And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, 'Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain.' So God granted him what he requested." In an era where many Christians shy away from anything that smacks of "name it and claim it," author Bruce Wilkinson alleviates misgivings by putting the prayer into perspective.

And if you are a control freak, Les will help you become willing to lose the control you love. The book includes self-tests and a lifelong prescription for healthier relationships.
