What do you do when that voice in your head tells you you're not enough? Not smart enough, not pretty enough, not capable enough, not present enough. Where do you turn when the world's promise that you can have it all becomes a crushing expectation that you must do it all, at all times, and keep a smile fixed on your face while you wither inside? Unpacking the biblical story of Mary and Martha as she shares her own story of recognizing her unique giftedness, Denisse Copeland shares the liberating truth that you have a right to be you. Just you, at the feet of Jesus. She shows you how to embrace your identity as a woman set apart, not to do it all but to be exactly who God created you to be. No apologies. No guilt. No compromise. If you're tired of comparing your life to others as you strive to be all things to all people, Set Apart is your invitation to lay your burdens down and abide in Jesus--faithful, free, and fulfilled.
What Bezalel had never taken the time to put together in his mind was the fact that God had created him to be skilled in these areas. He had literally been set apart—selected—to shine in an area where very few others had capabilities.

Israel was a holy nation, God's own people, set aside for His purposes. A little group of people—a family that grew into a nation— separated out from among the nations of the earth to be God's possession.

In this six-week Bible study through the beatitudes, author Jennifer Kennedy Dean examines the promise of blessedness in Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. Unlike a circumstance-driven emotion, such as happiness, blessedness is eternal and grounded in the reality of Christ in you. You are able to live in the state of blessedness that God has created for you when you discover the key to true holiness—a call to freedom and joy. We were made for holiness, and this core concept of the beatitudes is accessed through a praying life—a life lived in the present-tense power of God. It is only when we continually pursue holiness that blessedness comes, and we discover the power and fulfillment of the promise of God. An accompanying DVD and online resources are available to enhance the study experience.

This book is about the origin and expansion of the Judeo/Christian belief. The neo/technologies and ideo/evolution facing the 21st century have set the stage for a revised current and relevant history of the moral and intellectual journeys of the human species. These were Eras that became the spiritual, theological, and ideational “marvels of enlightenment” that occurred over millennia, always set within the context of Divine freedom. This reworked history can be best told in two parts. Part I tells us that God chose to make use of set-apart people to accomplish His Divine plan for Planet Earth; first, as Ancient Hebrews, then as Caucasian Alpha-Males, and finally as Evangelical Christians. Part II of this unique account involved “all about Jesus,” the incarnate God, sent by the Father to help humanity understand His nature and intentions. Jesus became the visible expression of the invisible Deity. Accordingly, set-apart people were needed: (a) to counteract the all-encompassing, moral depravity of the Ancient World; (b) to set up the means of worship that pleases, not offends, God’s essential righteosness; and (c) to reveal the organic, scientific and mathematical truths of our physical reality. In Part II, Jesus becomes the focus of salvation, sanctification, resurrection, and eternal glorification for each soul. Thus, God’s Intelligent Design of Planet Earth

Everyone has an internal struggle, and everyone struggles with faith. Jim is no exception to this rule. Jim's problem is that he is an atheist and has no room for a god. He is a regular American and is struggling as it is to make it. God sends angels disguised as people to get his attention. Fed up with his life, he attempts to disregard them. He seems to accept his newfound faith but is continually tested by supernatural forces. Jim even catches the attention of the antichrist, not to mention Satan himself. As if his personal struggle was not enough, he has to worry about what plans Satan has for his friends. Each victory seems to have a negative relapse. Realistic dreams of rapture and the apocalypse haunt him during his sleep. During his time awake he has visions of heaven and even a glimpse of the future. Can this newly found Christian remain vigilant in his walk, or will his faith fade to the wayside? Can he hold onto the truth, or will he follow the traditions of man? Little does Jim know, God has a much bigger plan for his life. He has to do the impossible--battle against Satan and his army of darkness--with little more than the word of God.
