  • Freedom in the 10 CommandmentsFreedom in the 10 Commandments

    Trucksess, Kurt.

    The Ten Commandments are the foundation of our nation’s system of law and justice. Unfortunately, many Americans — even Christian Americans — struggle to name more than a few. For those who can name a few commandments, an understanding of how those commandments apply to our postmodern world is missing. In this book, I hope to reduce the gap between God’s ancient law and modern living. Why should you take the time to study the Ten Commandments? In one word, the answer is freedom. God’s commands don’t just tell us how God desires us to live. They tell us the best way to live. Obedience to God’s commands leads to freedom and joy. Breaking God’s commands leads to slavery and death. God’s commands are the pathway to freedom for the people of God. It is my hope this book helps you experience the freedom God desires as we study God’s commandments and learn what they mean for us today.

    Porter, Dianne Esau.

    When the church that her husband shepherded for over eight years no longer wanted his services, deep feelings of sorrow and betrayal plunged into Dianne Esau Porter's heart. In an instant, her happy, stable life felt directionless and out of control. In a sincere memoir about her struggles with uncertainty, loss, and forgiveness, Esau Porter is open about the hardships that the wives of pastors face. She was used to doors in her life opening, but she wasn't prepared for them to close. Esau Porter recounts the events that left scars of uncertainty on her soul. She weaves scripture and the wisdom of great theologians as she searches for God during her trials, trusting that she'll feel his healing grace. Esau Porter ultimately had to lean on the faith that God had a greater purpose for her family that would make sense only in the future.
