    Rebuild: A Study of Nehemiah
    By Kathleen Nielsen

    The Book of Nehemiah tells of God's people returned from exile and rebuilding the broken-down city of Jerusalem. More than that, it tells of God's people being rebuilt according to His Word. As we watch the leader Nehemiah direct the rebuilding, we're watching the Lord God direct history according to His promises–all of which were fulfilled in the promised Christ who came from this people's seed. This study of Nehemiah helps us understand our history as believers in Jesus Christ. It helps us learn to walk in faith according to God's Word, even in times of weakness and rebuilding. Eight lessons draw us into the text, giving background and asking questions that lead us to make fruitful and personal observations.

    By John Baker

    With a foreword by Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, this life-changing book helps you find true happiness if you choose to accept it. LIFE HAPPENS.

Life’s Healing Choices offers freedom from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits through eight healing choices that promise true happiness and life transformation. Using the Beatitudes of Jesus as a foundation, Senior Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and John Baker, who is also a pastor at Saddleback, developed the eight choices shared in this book.

    Does God Offer Hope?

    Throughout the Bible, God offers to replace agony with peace, hate with love, and confusion with clarity. Difficult situations won’t disappear; some days carry enormous pain. But in the midst of suffering, he promises something real, sacred, and solid on which to build a foundation and sustain a meaningful life. He offers real hope.

    Ezra, Nehemiah, and Your Place in the Story

    James Hamilton's newly published commentary on exalting Jesus in Ezra and Nehemiah is both scholarly and accessible, text-centered and warm-hearted—all of which comes through even in this brief interview. 

    Is There Hope in Tragedy?

    There are many big questions that are being asked. When will this ongoing series of tragedies come to an end? How are terrorists being radicalized to believe that taking the lives of children and innocent citizens will solve anything? Where is justice for communities who live in apartment buildings without fire alarms and water sprinklers? And where is God in the midst of all this pain and suffering?

    We are clearly living in a world that is not as God intended it to be, or as we would like it to be. We live in a world where there are times of unbearable pain, suffering and loss. Even when it seems God is nowhere to be found, he is there.
