One of the most beautiful ways to know God better is to learn from those who served Him in other times and cultures. The poets and saints of Christian history were imperfect, yet they offer wisdom across the centuries that is as powerful today as it was to their contemporaries. In Poets and Saints, Jamie George takes readers from a pub in Oxford, to a cathedral in the Italian hills, to a rooftop in Switzerland, and beyond as he offers insight into the minds and hearts of Christians such as John Newton, C. S. Lewis, and Saint Therese.

"I’ve always said that the best teachers are storytellers, and Jamie George is one of the best storytellers I know. I’ve been blessed by hearing him tell his stories in person for years. Now it’s your turn!” Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host “Jamie has invited us into his life through this book. Love Well is a peek into a preferred future. You will be drawn in and challenged to live life in a way that glorifies God and brings you deep joy.” Darrin Patrick, lead pastor of The Journey, vice president of Acts 29, and author of The Dude’s Guide to Manhood “When I heard Jamie was writing this book, my first thought was, at last! He’s been one of my favorite storytellers for years, and as soon as you read Love Well, he’ll be one of yours too.” Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Start and Stuff Christians Like “In Love Well, George offers us a spiritual harvest of connection—with God, ourselves, and others—so we can wade through our stuck places and start moving again. The poignant story of his marriage will move you. His superb writing will inspire you. His insights will challenge you.” Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker Do you feel like you’re stuck? Do you feel alone? Do you live in fear that your struggles might push others away? Do you wonder if your faith is a fraud because of the emptiness in your soul? Are you weary of trying to play by the rules and pretend that everything is okay? In Love Well, Jamie George confronts the popular heresy that God’s children are meant to live a life absent of pain, sorrow, or conflict. On the contrary, Jamie passionately describes brokenness as a divine gift and a necessary God-ordained path to experiencing true joy and genuine redemption. With surprising transparency, Jamie shares his personal journey of getting unstuck and provides reassuring comfort for those looking to move beyond their pain toward a life of connection and grace.

Treatise On The Love Of God

THE following Treatise presents, at first sight, considerable difficulties. They do not arise from any defect in the Saint’s mode of expression, but are inherent in his subject and manner of treatment, “going deep down into the roots” of the Love of God. Thus he speaks in his Preface, and continues: “The first four books, and some chapters of the others might doubtless have been omitted without disadvantage to such souls as seek only the practice of holy love. . . . I have been forced to say many things which will appear more obscure than they are. The depths of science are always somewhat hard to sound.” But he tells us that the state of the minds of his age required this deeper treatment; and whatever may be thought as to the best way of presenting modern religious teaching to an age so ignorant, so shallow and so unthinking as is our own with regard to spiritual truths, there can be no question that this masterpiece of the chief doctor of ascetic theology must not be brought down to our level, but that we must raise ourselves towards it.

"Don't Blink is a call to life we not only need, but also hunger for--a call to go beyond survival to full-fledged life. It will be a gift to your spirit." John Ortberg, Senior Pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, and author of All the Places to Go. "John Merritt has an extraordinary zest for life and a great gift for storytelling. In Don't Blink he weaves his personal stories together with God's scripture in a way that motivates and illustrates what it means to live life to the fullest, and to live it with God at the center of everything." Larry Osborne, Senior Pastor of North Coast Church, and author of Thriving in Babylon.For the record, there is no eleventh commandment that says, "Thou shalt not enjoy life." Nor does God ever say, "My plan for you is to be miserable on earth until you arrive in heaven." Rather, the earth reflects a joyful Creator who gives us his creation for our pleasure. Don't Blink is for procrastinators, dreamers, and would-be adventurers who wish to grab hold of life this day, knowing there are no guarantees about someday. From Alaska to Argentina to the Amazon--in situations ranging from dangerous to humorous--John Merritt takes you on a daring pilgrimage revealing what living in the moment looks like. John demolishes the notion that once you become a Christian your freedoms are gone and your fun is done. Life is an extraordinary adventure elevated to audacious heights when God is leading the charge. Whether on the other side of the world or in your own backyard, you will be inspired to squeeze more joy out of the life God has given you.

The Bible tells Christians not to grieve as the world grieves and to rejoice in their sufferings. Yet when author Kevin Ott lost his mother unexpectedly in 2010, he sank into a wintry depression. When life seemed the darkest, something surprising happened. While exploring eighteen C. S. Lewis books and thirteen U2 albums, he experienced tremendous “stabs of joy”—the unusual heaven-birthed joy that Lewis wrote about—in the midst of grief. This revelation not only pulled Kevin out of depression, it forever changed the way he experienced the love and joy of Christ. In Shadowlands and Songs of Light, you will:Learn fascinating details about C. S. Lewis, discover his unique definition of joy, understand how to apply his revelations about joy to suffering, and learn to recognize and cooperate with God’s strategic use of joy.Enjoy a grand tour of U2’s discography, with a special emphasis on their exploration of joy and suffering.Clearly understand, from the perspective of music theory explained in common terms, why the music of U2 is so emotionally powerful and how it serves as a perfect analogy for Lewis’s concepts of joy and the Christian ability to rejoice in suffering.Find inspiration from the personal stories of U2, especially the tragedies that engulfed their youth in Dublin, and see how they worked through that grief and discovered a joy that has kept the band together for over thirty-five years.When the out-of-control nature of the world and your weaknesses throw you off-balance, you can experience God’s grandeur and joy— discovering heaven’s perspective until it becomes your instinctive, default vantage point every day.
