Why do our Bibles often sit on bookshelves collecting dust? Why don’t we mine the wisdom filling their pages? Pastor James Merritt, author of the bestselling 52 Weeks with Jesus, invites you to view Scripture afresh, and fall in love with the book that changes everything.

J. Warner Wallace was a devout atheist for the first 35 years of his life. But when he decided to apply his skills as a detective to the claims of the New Testament, he came to a startling realization: the case for Christianity was as convincing as any case he’d ever worked on as a detective. Cold Case Christianity will renew your passion for articulating the case for Christianity.

What is enough? In More or Less, readers will learn how to draw a line of “enough” in their consumer choices, how to see generosity as a chance to experience freedom in a greedy world, and how to make small changes now that will help others forever. It is a reminder that “enough” is more than a responsibility—it is an opportunity to give hope.
