God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian

by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

From Slapstick's "Turkey Farm" to Slaughterhouse-Five's eternity in a Tralfamadorean zoo cage with Montana Wildhack, the question of the afterlife never left Kurt Vonnegut's mind. In God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian, Vonnegut skips back and forth between life and the Afterlife as if the difference between them were rather slight. In thirty odd "interviews," Vonnegut trips down "the blue tunnel to the pearly gates" in the guise of a roving reporter for public radio, conducting interviews: with Salvatore Biagini, a retired construction worker who died of a heart attack while rescuing his schnauzer from a pit bull, with John Brown, still smoldering 140 years after his death by hanging, with William Shakespeare, who rubs Vonnegut the wrong way, and with socialist and labor leader Eugene Victor Debs, one of Vonnegut's personal heroes.What began as a series of ninety-second radio interludes for WNYC, New York City's public radio station, evolved into this provocative collection of musings about who and what we live for, and how much it all matters in the end. From the original portrait by his friend Jules Feiffer that graces the cover, to a final entry from Kilgore Trout, God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian remains a joy.

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Eliot Rosewater, drunk, volunteer fireman, and president of the fabulously rich Rosewater foundation, is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature. . . with a little help from writer Kilgore Trout. The result is Vonnegut's funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.

God Can Not Be Trusted: And Five Other Lies of Satan

by Tony Evans

Does God Really Have Your Best Interest at Heart? Doubting His holiness? Thinking maybe you shouldn't completely surrender to Him, that you're better off in charge of your own life? Well, say hello to the father of these lies: Satan. He's an old pro using the same brilliant, deceptive tactics to harm you every time--unless you dare call his bluff and refuse to ever be his victim again. In God Can Not Be Trusted (and Five Other Lies of Satan), you'll discover how to recognize the devil's six ancient tactics, and claim victory over each one. Your only hope is in the power of Jesus Christ. Because only Christ can conquer Satan. He already has. So flood your mind with truth, and begin to see the lies for what they are. You'll never be duped by them again, free to live abundantly in light of God's truth! Have You Been Fooled? God must be out to get me. I'm better off doing my own thing. Sure it's a sin, but I can get away with it! Do you recognize these thoughts? Then you have been fooled. And Satan is laughing. Because if he can deceive you, he will destroy your state of mind, ruin your relationships, and steal your joy. Do not let him. Dr. Tony Evans equips you to recognize Satan's conniving tactics and boldly declare his lies for what they are. Winning this game is easier than you may think. And victorious living in light of God's truth is your daily reward! Story Behind the Book: A common theme emerged as Tony Evans held counseling sessions with countless individuals. People seemed completely unaware of how the spiritual realm was at work in their lives. "They saw clearly with their physical eyes," he says, "but remained unaware of the evil, unseen spiritual activity that either caused or aggravated their physical world. Even in my own life, when I faced challenges or struggles, I would often reference the physical system without first looking at the spiritual cause," says Tony. "Thus this book's message was born to more effectively help people understand and address their struggles from a spiritual point of view."

Why do some believers experience genuine, life-changing, personal revival while others don't? In The God Catchers, the sequel to the phenomenal The God Chasers, Tommy explains the difference: "God in a sense plays hide and seek. But like a loving parent, He always makes sure He can be found by those who take the time to look." Simply put, those who earnestly seek God rather than wait for something to happen find Him. Full of biblical and contemporary accounts of believers who chased God and caught Him, The God Catchers will motivate readers to discover the joy of finding God and having a loving relationship with Him.

The God Cookie

by Geoffrey Wood

Would you know if he did, if God really spoke to you-- would it be booming from the heavens or just in your head? If it was in your head, how would you know if it was God or wasn't? Is God speaking right now but we're just not listening? And if God does tell you something...what would you do about it? Meet Parrish. He's a regular guy, owns a coffee shop. He happens to be shooting the breeze with his buddies at the neighborhood Chinese buffet, talking about the dents in golf balls and such, when the discussion develops into a debate on whether or not God still speaks to people.When his friends skip out and he is left alone, Parrish tells God he's "all in." Ready to listen, do what he's told, and see what happens. Only moments later, back at his table, he opens his fortune cookie to find a surprise -- instead of a proverbial statement, he reads a directive from God. "Take the corner."God, via cookie, sends him on this first step of a seemingly absurd adventure. His quest sends him to the corner bus stop, where he finds a dropped and forgotten letter, written in a desperate tone, to help those God brings across his path. There, Parrish befriends Audra, a nursing student who rides the bus home. And together they begin to follow the god cookie message, pursuing the random threads of the experiment, tying them together and discovering more about themselves than either ever imagined possible.

God Distorted

by John Bishop

God is not a bigger version of your earthly father. When you hear the word "father," do you think of someone who is loving...or angry? Someone who is pleased with you...or constantly disappointed? Someone who is always available...or someone who is too busy, preoccupied, or distant? When you think of "Father God," what images come to mind? Regardless of the type of father you grew up with--or without--it is likely that your view of God is influenced by the relationship you had with your father. Author John Bishop wants to help you discover that God is not just like your dad. Instead, God is the Father revealed in Scripture, where the truth is clear. God is a father who is: * always there* up close and personal* fully pleased* in complete control* completely safe Filled with biblical insight and practical tools for reflection, healing, and restoration, God Distorted will enable you to break free from the lies of the enemy and see your heavenly Father as He truly is.From the Trade Paperback edition.
