Strength for the Weary: Life is not easy. Its many trials often leave us wondering how we can press on in a fallen world. When we receive fresh wounds before old ones heal, we often are tempted to despair. We share this experience with the ancient people of God, and we can also share in the profound comfort God offered them. In the final chapters of Isaiah, the prophet presents a significant set of encouragements for the people of God as they journey through a world filled with trials and sorrow.
Strength for the Weary explores the final chapters of Isaiah, laying out the remarkable promises that God makes to His people. In these pages, there is consolation in the struggles of this life and encouragement for the road ahead. The God of Comfort has promised to be with His people always.
Addictions: When we think about addiction, whether it’s related to drugs or alcohol or something else, it’s not uncommon for addiction to be classified as an illness or a disease. But this definition rules out an underlying truth, and that is that addiction at its root, is simply sin. Written by long-time counselor and expert in the field, Ed Welch, Addictions explores the relationship between the sinful nature of greed, lust, obsessions, and cravings to addictions that are out of control. And most importantly in this tremendously helpful book, he gives specific steps for breaking the hopeless cycle of wanting more. If you struggle with addictive behavior, you’ll find Ed Welch’s teaching on why we’re addicted a vital first step to the road to recovery.
