Marriage That Works
When it comes to marriage these days, anything goes. No wonder you can find a book on marriage from every perspective–or no perspective. How can you experience a great marriage that lasts? What works?
This book answers that question by shining a light on the biblical design for marriage. In a world of sexual and relational confusion, isn’t it time to consult the One who created marriage? Author and pastor Chip Ingram, with his characteristic compassion, transparency, and engaging storytelling, discusses
– what marriage really is
– the biblical model
– a man’s unique role in marriage
– a woman’s unique role in marriage
– the bigger picture of why God created marriage
A marriage that works, says Ingram, is more wonderful than you thought possible and harder than you imagined–but worth the work. Couples will learn the power of making a covenant with their spouse and fulfilling their design in an atmosphere of respect, resulting in the spiritual, psychological, emotional, and physical oneness they long to have with each other.
A critically acclaimed #1 New York Times bestseller with more than one million copies in print and a major motion picture! Gritty with pain, betrayal, and brutality, this incredible true story also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.
Meet Denver, raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana until he escaped the “Man” in the 1960’s by hopping a train. Untrusting, uneducated, and violent, he spends 18 years on the streets of Dallas and Fort Worth.
Meet Ron Hall, a self-made millionaire in the world of high-priced deals—an international arts dealer who moves between upscale New York galleries and celebrities.
It seems unlikely that these two men would meet under normal circumstances, but when Deborah Hall, Ron’s wife, meets Denver, she sees him through God’s eyes of compassion. When Deborah is diagnosed with cancer, she charges Ron with the mission of helping Denver.
From this request, an extraordinary friendship forms between Denver and Ron, changing them both forever. A tale told in two unique voices, Same Kind of Different as Me weaves two completely different life experiences into one common journey. There is pain and laughter, doubt and tears, and in the end a triumphal story that readers will never forget.

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to enter into a business partnership with God? In The 25 Biblical Laws of Partnership with God, William Douglas and Rubens Teixeira reveal that God wants to be a part of not just your spiritual life but your entire life. God wants to participate in your career, your workplace, and the way you do business. The 25 biblical laws offer a spiritual agenda with practical results, providing answers to such questions as
– How should a Christian act at work?
– If the owner of a company is a follower of the Bible, how should they treat their employees and clients?
– Should the products sold or the services rendered by a partner of God be special in any way?
In this book, you’ll learn how to build a business partnership with God, changes you can make in your work habits, and the laws you should follow to reap the benefits of your partnership with God and others.
Today’s world knows little about perseverance. This is why so few people become innovators, entrepreneurs, and world-changers. Success is bypassed, not due to a lack of opportunity, but because we don’t know how to maximize the opportunities in front of us and PUSH – persevere until success happens.
In her encouraging and dynamic style, Dr. Cindy Trimm inspires you to go for it. It is one thing to read about the lives of great achievers—it is another thing to join their ranks.
Learn how to:
• Carry your dreams, visions, and goals “full term” and to complete fulfillment
• Exercise the power of faith to overcome the impossible and release God’s supernatural purposes into your life
• Resist the temptation to ‘cave’ under pressure and press on even when you don’t feel like it anymore
• Empower others to fulfill their divine destinies through co-laboring with them
“If you dare to believe that God has something great in store for you to do, to accomplish, or to achieve, you must be prepared to persevere in spite of your hardship, setbacks, and challenges in order to realize your dreams and accomplish your goals. This book is written to give you that extra push.”—Cindy Trimm
