Life sucks. It’s a fact we all have to face up to now and then, and the best medicine is often a healthy dose of rage and profanity. Let off some steam with this cantankerous collection of wrathful words and grouchy grumblings.
Inspired by the story of Jael and Deborah in the book of Judges, Jaime Hope McArdle shares her personal journey to a life of purpose and freedom through finding identity as a daughter of the Creator King. She takes on the old stories and passages of the Bible with fresh eyes asking how they impact her life today and challenges her readers to consider becoming freedom fighters-beginning in their own lives and then becoming a force for transformation in the world around them. With chapters titled "A Danger to the Gates of Hell" and "Freedom Fighter," Jaime uncovers the spiritual battle raging under the surface in the world around us and challenges women to reconsider what being in prison looks like and to find the courage to try the door because it cannot be locked. In "The Healing" and "Daughter of a King," she walks through revelation of a true identity that is the right of every woman who will "Choose This Day." This new identity defies the cultural norms for women with "The Greatest Love of All" and calls women to see their power is not in becoming more like men or in manipulation through sexuality. She encourages the power to change the "Operating Systems" that directs everyday life and challenges to accept a new "Assignment" to see life as a daily adventure to bringing love, forgiveness, grace, and freedom to a world growing darker each year. Finally, the assurance of "Getting It Wrong" to know the promise that God will have his way. And as we attempt to follow his call on our life, we can make mistakes and learn. In our triumphs and failures, his grace brings all things together for our good. We can walk confidently through difficult seasons knowing who we are and whose we are. www.jaelfinishingschool.com
The New Testament records seven separate incidents of dead people returning to life through the power of God. In the midst of the current cultural fascination with undead creatures, many believers in the church are more familiar with zombies in entertainment than with the amazing stories of new life recorded in the Bible. Undead: Revived, Resuscitated, and Reborn retells these stories in a unique style that will reach a new generation of readers and challenge them to come back from the spiritual dead. Few believers realize that many people - including six specific individuals - are raised from the dead between the Gospels and book of Acts. Undead applies those stories to revitalize the faith of believers while leading seekers to discover the spiritual resuscitation that only comes from God through His Son. By examining each story of resuscitation, readers discover gospel truths that they can apply to their own lies in ways that will elevate hope and challenge faith. Relating to the characters in these accounts helps bring to light areas in our lives that may need revitalization and challenge us to decide whether we will allow God to transform us.
