Envy: A Big Problem You Didn't Know You Had

You have a FORMIDABLE FOE-it’s time to launch an effective counterattack


Envy. It’s insidious. Pervasive. Corrosive. In the age of materialism and social media, it’s difficult not to feel the creep of this increasing and ever-present temptation. Pastor and teacher Mike Fabarez diagnoses the problem of this pervasive sin. He brings the reader to biblical stories with often-overlooked ties to envy that expose and demonstrate the seriousness and harm caused by our unexamined motives. When envy is allowed to reside unchecked in our hearts, there are internal, relational, and societal costs—Envy explores all of these.

But we are not left to despair. Instead, we are invited to know a kind and gracious Father who calls us to identify and assault this enemy. We can live with satisfaction and contentment. This book explores biblical ways to shore up our hearts and minds and close the gaps that leave us vulnerable to envy’s temptations. By understanding life in the body of Christ, readers learn to truly rejoice with those who rejoice. And we leave with a deeper capacity for grace and selfless love. With a pastoral heart, Fabarez reassures Christians of a divine hope and promise of an eternal kingdom where hearts are content, and joy is full.

10 Mistakes People Make About Heaven, Hell & the After Life

What’s the Truth About Eternity?


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. US $13.99

Raising Men Not Boys

How to Raise a Godly Man in a Godless World


Perhaps there has never been a more challenging time to raise children than in today’s culture. Parents are having to address challenges that their parents never had to with them. And while the core elements to raising children are the same, parents need wisdom for applying them to this day and age.

That’s what this book is about: navigating the times and raising a generation of men on godly principles—sons who are ready, able, and motivated to represent God during their days of sojourning on this earth. Pastor and author Mike Fabarez will help parents pass the faith on to their sons, in prayer that the promises of God extend to the third and fourth generations… and beyond. US $9.99

Lifelines for Tough Times

God’s Presence and Help When You Hurt


When tough times hit, we often find ourselves vulnerable―to doubt, fear, worry, even depression. We ask, “Does God care? Has He forgotten me?”

So why does God allow suffering? Author Mike Fabarez―who is well acquainted with deep pain himself as the father of a special-needs child and as a pastor who has counseled many through life’s hurts―looks to the truths of Scripture for answers. Along the way, he shares…

  • how complete trust in God alone can restore your confidence and hope
  • the power of focusing on God’s eternal goals for you in life’s temporary setbacks
  • God’s promises to love and protect you no matter what happens

This book will not only help you understand why God allows suffering―it will provide you with the resources to stand strong, rest in God’s care, and endure! US $8.99

Preaching That Changes Lives

The Transforming Work of God’s Word


Certainly there are many books about preaching on the market today, but no author directs his attention to the clear message of changing lives more than Michael Fabarez.

Everything a pastor does must be done with the perspective of changing lives. When a pastor studies, it should be with the anticipation of changing lives. When he is looking for the right illustration, it must be through the lens of changing lives. When he sets forth the spiritual direction for the church, he must have the scope of changing lives in his focus.

All other books dissect the essentials of pastoral ministry, but Preaching That Changes Lives takes it one step further!

“I’m thankful for the careful way in which Mike Fabarez has sought to maintain balance in Preaching That Changes Lives. He understands that in order for our preaching to be instrumental in changing lives, we must be both didactic and practical. The book is loaded with helpful advice on how to achieve and maintain the equilibrium. This is a wonderful resource for all pastors and teachers, regardless of their stage in ministry. My prayer is that it will be taken to heart by all who read it.” Dr. John MacArthur Pastor Grace Community Church. US $25

Getting It Right

The Real Problem and God’s Perfect Solution


Nothing is of more fundamental importance for every person on the planet than our need to get right with God. And while our Creator has revealed and reiterated his reconciling message on page after page of the Bible, many have opted for a popularized, truncated, sound-byte version of the gospel.

In Getting It Right Mike Fabarez goes back to the Bible and thoughtfully walks us step-by-step through each major component of the gospel message, from God’s diagnoses of the universal human problem, to the great lengths God has gone to solve it.

Though many today are increasingly infatuated with what Christianity might mean for this life, Mike Fabarez wants us to be crystal clear about what God has said about getting it right with him now so that we will be ready for the next life. US $6.99

Why the Bible?

God’s Communication to Mankind


The Bible claims to be a book that records the words and thoughts of God himself. That is a big claim. If that claim is true, it certainly explains why so many enthusiastically read its stories, religiously memorize its verses, and passionately proclaim its message. But if that assertion is not true, then scores of people have been profoundly misled and perhaps should begin looking for divine wisdom elsewhere.

In Why the Bible? Mike Fabarez explores the claim that the Bible is God’s communication to mankind and seeks to concisely answer the question of why millions of people through the centuries have put so much stock in this ancient book. Dr. Fabarez then goes on to provide practical direction for those who say they embrace the Bible’s divine origins. US $4.99
