Praying for Miracles - Courtney Daniel Dabney Summary
Miracles are woven into the fabric of Christianity. From Genesis to Revelation, they are threads that run throughout the entire tapestry of Scripture. It seems, however, that our society has waged an all-out assault on miracles and their relevance. Today, biblical miracles are brushed aside as mere superstition or myth, while God is dismissed as unnecessary. Is there really a wonder-working God? Prayer is a powerful thing. It is a two-way conversation between a holy God and those He has chosen to redeem. Prayer is not powerful because of the words we choose, nor based upon the amount of faith that we possess, but because we serve an awesome God who is able to step into our natural world and work miracles on our behalf. So, the question is not whether there is a God, but rather how big is your God? Our faith is literally stitched together by God's miraculous power.
Playing with Dragons - Andrew R. Angel Summary
There be dragons all over the Bible. From the great sea monsters of Genesis to the great dragon of Revelation, dragons appear as the Bible opens and closes, and they pop their grisly heads up at various junctures in between. How did they get there and what on earth (or indeed in heaven) are they doing there? This is a book for those who find standard discussions of faith and suffering frustrating. Andy Angel opens up the rich biblical tradition of living with God in the midst of suffering. He takes the reader on a journey of exploration through biblical texts that are often overlooked on account of their strangeness--texts about dragons. He shows how these peculiar passages open up a language of prayer through suffering in which people share their anger, weariness, disillusionment, and even joy in suffering with God. Angel explores how such weird Scriptures open up a whole new way of praying and reveal a God who approves of honest spirituality, a spirituality that the Bible holds open but too many of its interpreters do not.

Upon This Rock - Rosie Rivera Summary
Many new believers struggle due to a lack of knowledge. The Bible states that we as baby Christians should desire the sincere milk of the Word that we might grow by it. Many people get born again and go back into the old lifestyle because they have no root in the Word and their foundation is weak. I would like to see every new believer become established and grounded in the Word so that they have a firm foundation that cannot be moved. Tests and trials come to each of us and the type of foundation our life is built upon determines whether we stand or fall. The more we understand the Word, the stronger our foundation becomes. God desires that we take His written Word and His revealed Word and apply them to our daily lives. This book is intended to inspire new believers to go after God, to get to know Him, and to love the Word. There is no greater joy than knowing Jesus who came to give His life for us so that we can have eternal life.
Manna for the Journey - Andrew L. Smith Smith Summary
Many of Andrews writings present a perception that is a little off center, a different way of contemplating a thought or a verse. They are, in a way, reflections that are a little fractured and sometimes a little distorted. They provide for a different way of seeing things. Sometimes they generate consideration and enrichment of life, Scripture, and love.
