His birth was victorious for He has saved us.”

Ed's Story, Part 1 (DVD)

Having been diagnosed with ALS and given a short time to live, former pastor Ed Dobson developed a series of brief films that openly and honestly express his personal story. In a down-to-earth way he tells us about the challenges of facing the reality of suffering and death.

Encouraging others who are wrestling with a life-threatening illness and those who are providing support, Dobson offers words of hope. As he takes us along on an uncommon journey toward a new quality of life and purpose, he shares a passion for life that explores emotions, attitudes, and healing.

Films featured in this DVD include:


Film 1: It Ain’t Over

It can be hard to find hope when it seems your world is falling apart. Sharing his struggle with suffering and issues of identity, forgiveness, gratitude, and healing, Dobson offers a fresh view on finding hope in God.


Film 2: Consider the Birds

So often we try to control what happens in life. Dobson encourages us to live in the moment and reminds us that God holds our future.


Film 3: Be There

Sometimes our presence alone can be all that’s needed to comfort those who are suffering. Through Dobson’s journey we can see how at times it is better to “show up and shut up.”

Christian Disciplines — Building Strong Character (Gift Edition)

Life is a journey of experiences, and some of them can leave you feeling as if you have been twisted and disjointed. As painful as they seem, those encounters can very well be what God is using to shape and mold you into the person He wants you to be.

In this new, updated, modern-day language edition of Christian Disciplines, you’ll examine the spiritual disciplines of divine guidance, suffering, peril, prayer, loneliness, and patience to help you . . .

  • Grow in your knowledge of who God truly is.
  • Build strong Christian character.
  • Develop a more intimate relationship with God.

Christian Disciplines encourages you to discover how God can transform your life to become more like Christ, to be strengthened in faith, and to experience the abundance of His grace.

Despite Doubt — Embracing a Confident Faith

In a world that says faith is all about taking risks—leaping into uncharted territory and expecting everything to be okay—many Christians struggle with the concept of walking by faith. How can you have confidence in God and follow His will when everyone around you is placing so much emphasis on doubt and the unknown as the driving force of faith?
In Despite Doubt, Michael E. Wittmer reexamines this popular viewpoint and encourages you to get a clear understanding of your assurance in God and your salvation. Wittmer says, “Doubt is not the fuel of faith. Scripture repeatedly presents faith as our reliance upon what we know. Faith begins when we know the facts about God and His great salvation.”

You’ll find wisdom from the Word and practical examples to help you develop a freeing perspective on doubt that opens the door to asking questions, finding answers, and gaining knowledge about securing your trust in God. Take a look at the flipside of doubt and discover how much you already know about God and how you can embrace a confident faith.
Despite Doubt includes questions for reflection and discussion and is excellent for both individual and small group study.
