God created us to live with a single passion: to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all spheres of life. The wasted life is the life without this passion.

For women only - $9.00

Shaunti Feldhahn

What’s going on in a man’s mind? From their early days, every woman has struggled to understand why males behave the way they do. Even long-married women who think they understand men have only scratched the surface. Beneath a man’s rugged exterior is an even more rugged, unmapped terrain. What bestselling author Shaunti Feldhahn’s research reveals about the inner lives of men will open women’s eyes to what the men in their life—boyfriends, brothers, husbands, and sons—are really thinking and feeling.

This book will guide women in how to provide the loving support that modern men want and need.

This simple map will guide you to loving your wife or girlfriend in the way she needs to be loved.

Mere Christianity - $10.00

Expanded into book form, Mere Christianity never flinches as it sets out a rational basis for Christianity and builds an edifice of compassionate morality atop this foundation.
