Do you want your life to count for Christ? Would you like to make a real impact for God’s kingdom in this world? You can-and you don’t have to be a great leader for it to happen. Just a good follower.
In Following Christ, Joseph Stowell shows why Christ’s command to “Follow me” isn’t merely the starting point of Christianity. It’s the very heartbeat of vibrant, effective faith. And its not just for a few gifted leaders, but for all believers.
“Christianity is a relationship, an adventure, a passionate pursuit of Christ,” says Stowell. “Followers escape the drudgery of a system of rituals and regulations, and revel in the discovery of the ever-interesting Christ.”
Stowell shows you what happens when an ordinary man or woman pursues not the trappings of Christianity, but Christ himself.
– What a “non-negotiated” follower looks like
– Why God does his best work through followers
– Why self-directed living is a recipe for emptiness
– What makes Christ so worth following
– How Christ transforms our character
– What it means to pick up your cross
– Why a close walk with Jesus is the key to effective living
This inspiring book cuts through the side-issues of Christianity to reveal its true, compelling object: Jesus Christ. As his fully devoted follower, you’ll discover a dynamic and refreshing way of living-one that will sustain you through life’s valleys and provide breathtaking spiritual vistas from its peaks. Its Christianity the way God intended it, marked by simplicity. Vigorous faith. Purpose and direction. Soul-winning impact on those around you.
And above all, a joyous, growing closeness with Christ.

Women Of The Bible Speak$25.99Add to cart
The women of the Bible lived timeless stories–by examining them, we can understand what it means to be a woman of faith.
People unfamiliar with Scripture often assume that women play a small, secondary role in the Bible. But in fact, they were central figures in numerous Biblical tales. It was Queen Esther’s bravery at a vital point in history which saved her entire people. The Bible contains warriors like Jael, judges like Deborah, and prophets like Miriam. The first person to witness Jesus’ resurrection was Mary Magdalene, who promptly became the first Christian evangelist, eager to share the news which would change the world forever.
In The Women of the Bible Speak, Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream opens up the lives of sixteen of these Biblical women, arranging them into pairs and contrasting their journeys. In pairing their stories, Shannon helps us reflect not only on the meaning of each individual’s life, but on how they relate to each other and to us.
From the shepherdesses of ancient Israel who helped raise the future leaders of the people of God, to the courageous early Christians, the narrative of the Bible offers us many vivid and fascinating female characters. In their lives we can see common struggles to resist bitterness, despair, and pride, and to instead find their true selves in faith, hope, and love. In studying these heroes of the faith, we can find wisdom and warnings for how to better navigate our own faith journeys.
The Women of the Bible Speak outlines the lessons we can take from the valor of Esther, the hope of Hannah, the audacity of Rahab, and the faith of Mary. In broadening each woman’s individual story, Shannon offers us a deeper understanding of each, and wisdom and insights that can transform our own lives today.
