Always Love: The Timeless Story of God’s Heart for the World and What it Means for You
If you've ever desired to more deeply connect with the Bible, or the God of the Bible, this book is for you!
Sometimes we forget that the Bible is actually one cohesive Story. Instead, we use it as a manual for morality, view it as a string of disconnected stories, or consult it as a compilation of theological doctrines. But in Always Love, you’ll rediscover the Bible’s overarching narrative as themes are woven together revealing a seamless story from beginning to end. After following these themes through each major twist and turn, through difficult passages normally glossed over, through narrative, poetry, and ancient history, you won’t read the Bible the same way again! And more than that, you’ll be inspired to respond to God’s Always Love for you and find your place in His Story.
"Always Love is accessible, engaging, illuminating. Sara takes the reader on a captivating journey through the Bible by employing a beautiful combination of creative prose and theological wisdom. And, whether you are new to the Scriptures or very familiar with them, a single chapter has the power to transform you."
Jason Thomas - Executive Vice President, InterVarsity.

Voices from the Field: Conversations with Our Global Family
Voices from the Field presents a unique opportunity to encounter real people and hear authentic Christian perspectives from around the world.The world has never seemed closer. We feel we can watch history unfold before our very eyes on our constantly connected devices.
We have access to more information than ever before, but this flood of data has not produced genuine connection nor understanding. Genuine conversations require safe places for us and to share and humility to listen.
The contributors to this volume have felt safe to share and you are invited to listen to voices from around the world. Voices that confront our practices and prejudices while inviting our partnership. To engage in missions today is to embrace the task of life-long learning.
This book is a rich resource for those who would join in the global task of building God’s Kingdom, presenting not just more information but new lenses through which to see ourselves and our shared world.

Pursuit of a Thirsty Fool: 5 Years Down the Road and Still Thirsty
What are you thirsty for? T.J. MacLeslie wrestles with this question in this revised and expanded edition of his spiritual autobiography. We find TJ 5 years further on his journey from childhood faith through the wilderness and back again.
Having been abused in the church, MacLeslie turned his back on God and looked for fulfillment in many places. His search led him to drink from many wells along the way, none of which quenched his thirst. All the while he was being pursued by One who loved him unconditionally.
Pursuit of a Thirsty Fool is a book for those who thirst, those longing for more. It is a reminder of our deepest desires and the Spring where they can be satisfied. It is for those who are in need of hope. Finally, it is for those caught in the dangerous pattern of doing things for God and who may have forgotten their first call: to love God.
This new edition contains the entire previous edition (revised) as well as four entirely new chapters plus a new appendix.

We were created to love God with all we are. We were designed for relationship.
