Free AudioBook:"AMERICA'S PASTOR" (Billy Graham) by Grant Wacker.

For this month only (November 2016).

"During a career spanning sixty years, the Reverend Billy Graham’s resonant voice and chiseled profile entered the living rooms of millions of Americans with a message that called for personal transformation through God’s grace.

How did a lanky farm kid from North Carolina become an evangelist hailed by the media as “America’s pastor”?

More than a conventional biography, Grant Wacker’s interpretive study deepens our understanding of why Billy Graham has mattered so much to so many." CHRISTIANAUDIO

THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE FOUND FOR YOU THIS MONTH…

JUST GENES: A WORLDVIEW TOOL (pdf) by Peter Leslie (AFES) is a wonderful resource! "In your genes? It’s just a tool to get anybody thinking about what they believe or live for. We ask six big questions, present 5 possible answers and ask people to work out which answer best resonates with them. And to help stimulate the brain cells we make a few pithy comments and say a few words about Christianity. If words are not your thing you can look at some diagrams and work out which best portrays how you think and live."

BIBLE 101 (The Briefing). "If the Bible had a highlights reel, what passages would flash across the screen? In Bible 101, we’ll be taking a close look at 101 purple passages from the Bible that we think every Christian should know and understand."

"A Real Life Story - Transformation from Orphan to a Dreamer' by Brother Elisha

Nine years ago, an elderly woman brought a four years old little girl to me. Girl was pale, shy, looking so innocent and had no life on her face.

She had only one long gown which was torn out. She probably didn’t know where she was and why her grandmother brought her to me as she was so small and had no idea of what was going on.

Grandmother was in late 70’s. Grandmother started to tell me about the life of the little girl. The little girl lost both parents when she was three. Grandmother raised her as mother for one year.

After that she couldn’t even feed her as she was so old and couldn’t work. Both were living on the kindness of others in her village to fill their stomachs.

Grandmother was so worried about little girls’ future as she was in her last days. She wanted to find a place for the girl.

FREE Audio Book for February: I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO BE AN ATHEIST

HURRY! ONLY A FEW DAYS TO GO!!

"I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist argues that Christianity requires the least faith of all worldviews because it is the most reasonable.

The authors lay out the evidence for truth, God, and the Bible in logical order and in a readable, non-technical, engaging style.

A valuable aid to those interested in examining the reasonableness of the Christian faith, Geisler and Turek provide a firm challenge to prior beliefs of doubters and skeptics.' Christian Audio

FREEDOM CLIMB COMES TO HORNSBY

Slavery, exploitation and human trafficking – many people think these were a problem from years ago, and exist only in history books or epic films of former times.

The sad truth is that there are more people caught in slavery today than at any other time in history. The United Nations estimates that more than 27 million people are enslaved right now, with the majority being women and children, many in sexual slavery.

With over 50 projects in more than 30 countries, Freedom Climb brings hope and transforms the lives of women and children who are exploited, enslaved and trafficked. 

Projects supported by Freedom Climb have one or more of three focuses: rescue and rehabilitation, prevention, and development.
