Book Recommendation

One of the most common questions I get is, “What does God want me to do?” It might be a question about a job situation, a family issue, or how you spend your money. The choices might be simple or really serious, but regardless of the issue, we want to make the best godly decision we can. How do we know what the right choice is?


That’s why this month I have selected the book Seeking God’s Guidance by Elisabeth Elliot. She offers insight and observations born from a lifetime of following God’s lead to show how God guides his children. I trust that you will draw closer to God and make decisions that will please him more and more as a result of this helpful resource.

The afterlife seems like the great unknown. Human imagination and Hollywood have come up with many speculations about what lies beyond. How can we set aside the misconceptions and find the truth?


What are the straightforward, biblical answers everyone needs to know about heaven, hell, and the afterlife? Mike Fabarez examines 10 faulty beliefs that are surprisingly widespread—and look to God’s Word alone for the facts. You will find the truth about common misperceptions like:


  • When I die, I’ll go to sleep until the resurrection
  • On my way to heaven I’ll have to put in some time in purgatory
  • Heaven will be boring with very little to do

You don’t need to guess about the future—God’s Word is ready to inform your mind and settle your heart. Let this book guide you toward a deeper joy, faith, and understanding of eternity.
