Seeing God As A Perfect Father Study Guide With DVD (Student/Study Guide)
The renowned pastor and author A.W. Tozer once said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing to us . . . the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he in his heart conceives God to be like.” Our image of God shapes everything about us. It informs everything about who we are and who we are becoming.
In Seeing God as a Perfect Father, bestselling author and pastor Louie Giglio challenges each of us to consider our perceptions and thoughts about God. When we think about him, do we imagine a ruler who demands absolute loyalty from us? Or a coach who expects us to perform up to his high expectations? Or even a virtual assistant who is always there to help us when every other option is exhausted?
Louie invites us to consider God in a different way: as a perfect Father who wants us to live under the waterfall of his blessing. He points us to a God who is not absent or ambivalent, but available and affectionate, ready to shower us with his approval and love. He challenges us to consider:
*How the way that we are seeing God is influencing what we feel about his character
*How our perceptions of God’s perfection is creating misperceptions of his care for us
*How our relationship with our earthly father is creating distance in our relationship with him
*How our lives would be different if we truly were able to see God as a perfect father
When we take hold of the truth that our God has spanned heaven and earth to reach us, we will no longer be defined by our past but by the love of a perfect Father. Learn how God wants us to experience his unique, unconditional love and to live in the freedom, abundance, and blessing He freely gives.
This study guide has everything you need for a full Bible study experience, including:
*The study guide itself–with discussion and reflection questions, video notes, and a leader’s guide.
*An individual access code to stream all video sessions online.
*And the physical DVD.

Faith Still Moves Mountains$28.99Add to cart
From FOX News anchor and author Harris Faulkner comes a collection of powerful, true-life stories of resilience, healing, rescue, and protection.
We need reminders of God’s power now more than ever.
We often think about prayer as a wish list, with God as Santa Claus. The reality is that the power of prayer reminds us not only how small we are, but also how big God is. Prayer is hope put into action. And prayer works.
From the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Haiti to the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, believers testify to how God inspired hope even when all seemed lost.
Two teenagers who were saved from treacherous seas by a vessel named Amen now give thanks for the rescue that changed their lives. A woman’s near-death experience with COVID-19 turned out to be the crisis freeing her from despair. Others speak to how prayer helped them navigate family trauma, overcome abuse, and cope with mental illness and depression. Historical accounts of miracles testify to God’s power throughout time, and Faulkner recounts the role of faith and prayer in her own life and the life of her father.
Along with these stories of God’s presence, the book includes an exclusive packet of newly written prayers. Created to reflect the current times, this prayer booklet will provide a road map for putting the lessons of these stories into action.
Faith Still Moves Mountains reminds us that God’s light always shines through the darkness. Through these testimonies, we learn prayer isn’t just a ritual, it’s a vital spiritual strategy in a world that wants us to give up the fight.
Mere Christianity$17.99Add to cart
Arguably the 20th century’s most influential Christian writer, C.S. Lewis sought to explain and defend the beliefs that nearly all Christians at all times hold in common. His simple yet deeply profound classic, originally delivered as a series of radio broadcasts, is a book to be thoroughly digested by believers and generously shared with skeptics. Paperback with French f laps and deckled page edges.
Abolition Of Man$17.99Add to cart
In this graceful work, C. S. Lewis reflects on society and nature and the challenges of how best to educate our children. He eloquently argues that we need as a society to underpin reading and writing with lessons on morality and in the process both educate and re-educate ourselves. In the words of Walter Hooper, “If someone were to come to me and say that, with the exception of the Bible, everyone on earth was going to be required to read one and the same book, and then ask what it should be, I would with no hesitation say The Abolition of Man. It is the most perfectly reasoned defense of Natural Law (Morality) I have ever seen, or believe to exist. If any book is able to save us from future excesses of folly and evil, it is this book.” This beautiful paperback edition is sure to attract new readers to this classic book.
