Jesus Loves Women is the memoir of a girl raised in a fundamentalist Christian milieu she casts off at a young age and of her quest to find wholeness and home, spiritually and sexually.Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico; and author, Falling Upward, puts it this way: "Finally, the body is getting its due as the normal and gifted vehicle for Spirit! It has taken us a long time to realize the Christian obvious, and Tricia Gates Brown is making it both more obvious and thoroughly Christian." In his foreword, James Loney, Author of Captivity: 118 Days in Iraq and the Struggle for a World Without War, comments that "Jesus Loves Women is a story of grace, of how through the healing beauty of the Pacific coast and the friendship of a Trappist monk, Tricia awakens to a mystical understanding of God's unconditional love. It is the story of how one woman finds freedom from the shame, social conventions, and religious pieties that constrict the lives of all women." Susan Mark Landis, former Minister of Peace and Justice, Mennonite Church USA, says that "Like a late night talk with my best friend, Tricia's book gave me intimate insights into her life, my life, and God's love for us. Her fresh, rich words draw me to examine my life and God's movement through it. By openly sharing the secrets we typically hide, she invites us to give ourselves the grace God does and to journey toward unreserved living and loving." Brian Doyle, Author of the novel Mink River, views Brown as "An honest, piercing, blunt, lyrical, remarkable writer about the endless chambers of joy and pain in the heart."

This stirring book explores Jesus's heart and compassion for every woman—giving them undeniable value and significance. Based on Jesus's encounters with women during the time of his ministry, this tender book uncovers how time and again Jesus went against the traditional conventions of his era by treating women with respect and love, showing the world what a vital role they play. Jesus lived in an era where women were considered property and of little value as significant individuals. But by following Jesus's example, readers will see how women should be cherished and uplifted. Each chapter touches on Jesus's interactions with a specific woman, their conversations, and the gifts he bestows upon her. One tells of the widow who was burying her son, only to have Jesus resurrect him. Another is of the woman who was crippled for eighteen years and how Jesus not only freed her from her physical malady, but freed her spirit as well. But more than a mere retelling of these encounters, this book is a love story—a romance between the Creator of the universe come to earth and the women he came to know. Through these women, we see his love and compassion for every woman, and we watch as he lifts us all out of our ordinariness into the sublime intentions he planned for us since the beginning of time.

You'll find yourself drawn to the Bible like never before as you begin to see Jesus on every page. Discussion questions make this a great book to study on your own or with a small group.

In a world of high expectations, it's easy for women to feel unworthy. But there is someone who loves women just as they are: Jesus. Through engaging storytelling, Dorothy Valcarcel reveals the lives of eighteen New Testament women who knew Jesus personally. They were broken, needy, lonely, flawed, or empty, but Jesus cared about them and took time to meet their needs. With a narrative that takes readers from biblical times to the modern day, Valcarcel defines the kind of everlasting love for which every woman longs--the kind that lifts her up, holds her tight, and never lets her go.

How close can we get to Jesus? How close do you want to get? Six circles of relationship formed around Jesus in his time on earth. In the outermost circle, the Crowds who were curious. Next, the Five Thousand who were needy, while the Seventy worked and served in Jesus’ ministry; then came the Twelve who walked with Jesus, the Three who suffered and celebrated with him, and finally the One who sat beside him at the Last Supper. Jesus’ closest follower listened more closely than any other, and recognized the Savior when no one else did. Scripture promises if you move closer to God, he will move closer to you. Wherever you are in your pursuit of Christ, you can draw closer still. In The One Jesus Loves, you will learn about each of the six circles, and what it takes to move further in, closer and closer to Jesus. Which circle are you in today? Jesus is calling you closer. "After reading The One Jesus Loves, you’ll not only understand how to deepen your relationship with God by drawing closer into His ‘circle of intimacy,’ you’ll also see how becoming a closer follower of Christ can improve every other relationship in your life." —Mark Batterson, author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church “This book itself will be a gift to you. Robert Crosby has not just studied the costly grace of Jesus; he's lived it. This grace is a pool of fathomless depths. The deeper we go, the more healing we find.” —John Ortberg, author of Who Is This Man? and senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church

The True Revelation of Jesus Christ

This book is written to assist Jews, Muslims, atheists and mostly Christians in gaining a more comprehensive and accurate knowledge and understanding about Jesus Christ. The overwhelming weight of evidence placed on Jesus in this work as Lord and Savior of the universe is far greater than what the Quran narrates or what the Jew can accommodate. The evidence is so strong and so clear, that it gives understanding to the atheist and boosts up the knowledge of the reader about Jesus Christ, who is 100 percent man and 100 percent God. The journey from the original plan of God for man to the end of time is explained with examples of incompatibility between the Bible and the Quran. Thus, the reader is brought to a deeper knowledge of the Biblical inerrancy concerning the Godhead of the Bible and the great rescue plan of the Creator of the universe through Jesus Christ. You will find thrilling information which will kick your socks off and keep your mind and spirit in balance as you continue to read. I would say it is food for thought to change your life for the better.

Finding Freedom from the Secrets We Keep

When you host a program for women, and you open up the phone lines, email box, and Facebook page, you often resonate with their heart-breaking stories. That’s been the case as women have tuned in to Moody Radio’s Midday Connection, a radio show co-hosted by author Anita Lustrea, and shared their struggles and victories. When issues are raised such as loneliness, friendship, mothering, domestic abuse, sexual addiction, and body image, women pour out their hearts. Lustrea has heard heart-breaking stories through the years, and those stories have intersected with her own story of heartbreak. God lovingly weaves these stories into a tapestry to be used for His glory. Lustrea’s story means nothing without the impact of all of the other stories she has heard. Sometimes the church tries to sweep the hard stories under the carpet. Somehow we’ve gotten the impression that the hard things of life shouldn’t be shared. But when you allow your stories to become known, start to interact with the stories of others, and then allow God to work in and through your life, something miraculous starts to happen.In What Women Tell Me, Anita Lustrea tells her story along with the difficult stories of other women. For a long time, she listened to those who said “you can only hurt others by sharing your wounds.” When she realized that was a lie, she saw for the first time that through her wounds, she could be an agent of healing in the body of Christ.
