The Presence of God: A Commentary on The Book of Esther

The Old Testament book of Esther never mentions God. Not only that, it doesn't talk about prayer, the temple, scripture, nor sacrifices. Neither God nor anything religious is mentioned in Esther. This appears to be a secular book inserted into the Old Testament. Is God AWOL? Not if you know the rest of the story. Esther is a powerful drama about God. It is a story packed with royal palace intrigue, deception, and the plans of a clever and powerful evil villain... with the survival of humanity hanging in the balance. God isn't mentioned, but the hand of God can been seen outmaneuvering Satan and bringing salvation to the Jews and mankind in a most unexpected way.

About 170 pages in length, The Presence of God is an easy-to-read, fast-paced story that brings the book of Esther to life. Based on historical facts it reveals the motivations of the principle characters, bringing depth to the story and showing that God is not only present, He is sovereign and in control... we can trust the God's promises no matter what circumstances we are experiencing.

Happy Are The... A Commentary on the Beatitudes

The Beatitudes are one of Jesus' most important teachings. Yet, many Christians don't understand what Jesus is teaching in the Beatitudes. These "blessings" can seem confusing and paradoxical. At times Jesus seems to be teaching the opposite of what we know from simple common sense. If we are to be poor in spirit and mourning all the time, that seems like a miserable way to live. And the meek will inherit the earth? Who wants to be a meek push-over!

And there is a paradox. Jesus doesn't seem to practice what He preaches. He was poor in spirit and meek when, with anger, He entered the temple "and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves." (Matthew 21:12) So what's going on? Was Jesus a hypocrite? Or are we not correctly understanding the Beatitudes?

This book takes you deeper as you gain an understanding Jesus' teaching and how it applies to your life. You'll learn that the Beatitudes are about having the right heart... and from a right heart flows right actions. That's the key that the Pharisee's in Jesus' day missed. They were the most righteous and religious of all Jews, yet Jesus called them "white washed tombs," good looking on the outside, but dead on the inside? Why? Because they were not following the principles Jesus lays out in the Beatitudes. Their hearts were not right.

Answers to 180 Humanist Accusations Against the Bible (In Two Volumes)

"Always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence." - 1 Peter 3:15

Atheists like to challenge Christians with rapid-fire questions challenging the truth of the Bible. And few Christians can answer them. Can you defend Christianity and the Bible from an atheist loaded with questions? This two volume set, "180 Accusations Against the Bible Answered" gives you the tools and answers you need. Steve went to the American Humanist's web site and gives, in an easy-to-read style, the Biblical answer to every accusation and question they bring against the Bible. Over 180 atheist attacks on scripture are biblicaly answered!

"Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, 'Did God really say…'” – Genesis 3:1

That’s where it starts, with the question. “Did God really say?” Satan began his deception of Eve by challenging the truth and trustworthiness of God’s word. He knew that if he could get Eve to doubt God’s word, the battle was won. His tactics have not changed to this day. Why? Because they work. If Satan can use humanists to get you to doubt the truth of God’s word… he becomes the lord of your life. But you can have the answers at your fingertips! "180 Accusations Against the Bible Answered" is an excellent reference as well as n easy read.
