Forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central disciplines for all Christian believers. Lent, a time to reflect on our Christian journey, is an appropriate time to deepen our understanding and practice of forgiveness. Marjorie J. Thompson, author of the best-selling and newly revised book Soul Feast, takes a close look at our understanding of forgiveness in this encouraging study.  

Using biblical examples and real-life situations, Thompson illustrates each chapter's theme in an informative and engaging way. A study guide is also included at the back of the book that is appropriate for either individual reflection or group discussion. With clarity, insight, and sensitivity, this book is the perfect resource for examining both our ability to forgive and our own need for forgiveness.

who is this man

Lenten Study for Adult Groups
Who Is This Man? The Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus

Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. In Who Is This Man?, a five-session video-based study series, John Ortberg shows how Jesus' influence has swept over history, bringing his inspiration to the evolution of art, science, government, medicine, and education. And how his vision for us to lead lives of dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope continues to inspire and challenge humanity today.

final words

Lenten Study for Adult Groups
Final Words from the Cross

Hamilton examines Christ's dying hours and his final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross. This small-group study contains seven teaching sessions, providing fresh insight into Jesus' final words at the cross through the perspective of those who witnessed the crucifixion. Then, Hamilton moves beyond the cross to Jesus' words to the disciples on the road to Emmaus and to those who were witnesses to the Resurrection.
