Landmines in the Path of the Believer

  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Satan doesn’t usually hit us with an all-out frontal attack. It’s the subtle landmines that do the most damage. They’re hidden just below life’s surface, and at the slightest misstep-BOOM! Suddenly you find yourself flown right off the path, feeling separated from God and his blessings, humiliated, estranged from the love and respect of friends and family.

  • Pride
  • Jealousy and envy
  • Insecurity
  • Compromise
  • Unforgiveness
  • Disappointment
  • Fear
  • Immorality
  • Laziness

Life may be a minefield, but that doesn't mean you have to live in fear. Dr. Stanley spells out the biblical principles for avoiding and defusing each of these landmines. In the midst of spiritual warfare, this book is a call to live in the strong peace of God.

  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 112

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Is the third person of the Trinity a distant mystery, a vague cosmic force?

  • How to remain full of the Holy Spirit
  • Four great questions to ask God every day

If you are faltering, or easily fall prey to temptation, maybe you’ve forgotten to rely upon the power of the Holy Spirit and begun to rely only on yourself. The Christian life is meant to be increasingly dependent on his power working within you. Learn today to live in the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 240

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

“If an honest and capable portrait painter depicted you, what would the world see? Integrity, courage, and conviction? Or dishonesty, fear, and doubt?”

Are you walking wisely?

Dr. Charles Stanley cuts through the mystique of wisdom and presents God’s simple plan to bless those who walk in his ways.

In Walking Wisely, bestselling author Dr. Charles Stanley reveals this simple fact: there are only two ways to journey through life . . . wisely or unwisely.

When the Enemy Strikes

  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 224

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Your enemy is strong. The battle is real. Prepare for victory.

Fear, discouragement, loneliness, anger, temptation. These struggles are common to every human. Yet not all circumstances or negative emotions originate within. They could be the result of a willful, coordinated assault of Satan.

In When the Enemy Strikes, bestselling author Dr. Charles Stanley explores the often-overlooked reality of spiritual warfare—the tactics used by Satan to taunt, confuse, slander, and harm. Your adversary wants to crush your will, delay your promise, hinder your destiny, destroy your relationships, and lead you into sin. Dr. Stanley reveals how you should respond.

The most important component of warfare, says Dr. Stanley, is the supremacy of God—both his sovereignty and his power. Practically, this means the battles you face are ultimately allowed by God to bring you to a place of greater reliance on him. His strength crushes the enemy.

This is a world of conflict between good and evil, of powers beyond the merely human. The battle is unavoidable, but take heart, God has given you the strength to stand.

  • Pages: 128

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

You are a saint! Your relationship with Jesus Christ qualifies and identifies you as a saint—nothing else is required. And this identity isn’t based upon your feelings, how much you know, or what others say about you. Only one thing is necessary: you must receive, believe, and embrace the sacrificial atoning death of Jesus Christ on the cross.

In Discovering Your Identity in Christ, Charles Stanley provides a fresh look at your identity as a believer by turning to the one true source of wise, accurate, and eternal information about you—God himself. You’ll see how God uses life’s challenges and experiences to unlock your vast potential and confirm that you truly are his masterpiece in the making.

Leaving a Godly Legacy

  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 128

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Preparing for Christ’s Return

  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 128

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Are you living your life in eager anticipation of Christ’s return? Early Christians lived in such joyful expectation of his return that it was the topic of daily conversation. Are you to be any less excited about the most exhilarating moment of your existence, finally seeing Jesus face to face?

Rather than a Bible study that seeks to interpret end-time events, Preparing for Christ’s Return focuses on biblical truths of which you can be certain. Dr. Charles Stanley reveals how a life lived in expectation of Christ’s return is a life of genuine satisfaction, purpose, and meaning—a life that brings great reward now and in eternity.

  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 128

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Do you know God? There is a vast difference between knowing about God and knowing God.

Are you aware that the Lord wants you to know him in this way, that his desire is to have an intimate, personal relationship with you?

In Pursuing a Deeper Faith, Dr. Charles Stanley shares God’s invitation to grow in a heart relationship with him, to hear his voice speaking to your spirit daily, and to feel a deep assurance that you are “locked into” a forever relationship that cannot be severed.

  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 128

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

A few stolen dollars, a lustful thought, a prideful spirit—what tempts us may differ, but the results are the same. If seeds of temptation take root they can grow to control or even destroy us. And the damage doesn't stop there: each choice we make, for good or for evil, is part of an ongoing struggle between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan.

In Winning on the Inside, Charles Stanley explores what God says about sinful enticements, discusses how “spiritual armor” can help you battle temptation, and reveals that God’s grace is always available to you. Wise, challenging, and scripturally sound, this insightful guide provides the tools you need to overcome temptation and live victoriously.

In Winning the War Within, Dr. Stanley examines temptation from a biblical perspective and tracks its course from desire to sin to death.

Eternal Security

  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 224

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Do you ever find yourself wondering:

  • Is it actually possible to know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that I am going to heaven?
  • If you say that my salvation is “eternally secure” and that I can never lose it, does that mean that I can commit any sin and still go to heaven?
  • How can an understanding of “eternal security” make a difference in my Christian life?

With the wisdom and skill of a man who has personally wrestled with these questions, internationally-known pastor and bestselling author Charles Stanley addresses the age-old issue of grace vs. works in this compassionate, straight-forward book.

He has personality as well as a specific job description and a definite desire to be an active part of our lives.

How to Listen to God

  • Publication Date: 1985
  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

After becoming a Christian, believers discover the joy of God’s voice, but often the purity and freshness of that initial experience becomes clouded by the daily routine of life. In How to Listen to God Dr. Charles Stanley helps readers rediscover how to distinguish God’s voice from all other voices around them, and how to joyfully and obediently respond. Dr. Stanley uses personal experiences from his life and ministry to discuss: why God wants to communicate with us, how God gets our attention, how God communicates with us, and how to listen to God and enjoy his presence.

The Gift of Forgiveness

  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Charles Stanley, one of the most influential spiritual leaders of our day, shares the key to personal and even world peace in The Gift of Forgiveness. As Stanley points out that no sin is so shockingly evil it blocks God’s forgiveness nor so trivial it negates the need for God’s mercy, he shares the specifics of how to go about receiving and giving forgiveness.

The Gift of Forgiveness reflects the heart of Stanley’s teaching ministry. In this markedly helpful book, Stanley addresses such questions as how to practice a life of forgiveness in all your relationships and how to make forgiveness an ongoing, practical experience in your life.

How to Handle Adversity

  • Publication Date: 1989
  • Pages: 208

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The loss of a job. A rebellious child. A loved one dies. A struggling marriage. Financial hardships. The list is endless.

And now, in How to Handle Adversity, Charles Stanley offers a practical, biblical approach to help us deal with the troubles common to us all.

Adversity is a reality that no one can avoid. Everyone asks why when adversity strikes. Yet Stanley contends, “As much as we all want to know the answer to the why question, it is really not the most significant question. The real question each of us needs to ask is, How should I respond?”

How to Keep Your Kids on Your Team

  • Publication Date: 1986
  • Pages: 320

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

“It’s not what you think that will impact your child; it’s what you communicate.” What are you telling your kids? Are you telling them that their crises are trivial and their ideas are foolish? Probably not in so many words, but you may be communicating just that with your lack of interest in the day–to–day activities of your child. To keep your children on your team, Charles Stanley asserts, you must assure them from the start that you are on theirs.

Focusing on the parental role as one of stewardship rather than ownership, Stanley instructs parents on how to ingrain a sense of personal accountability to God into the minds of children at an early age. By doing so, parents can raise confident, self–controlled kids who will hold fast to the values they instill.

Our Unmet Needs

  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 272

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

We are a needy generation. We try to satisfy our needs with sin, disobedience, doubt, manipulating God and others, and more. But God wants to redirect our lives, teach us greater trust, and meet our needs in the light of his eternal purposes. Dr. Stanley guides the reader through Scripture to show that, in spite of our doubts and rebellion, God wants to meet our deepest needs. He shows that we have a High Priest who knows how we feel, is aware of our needs, and graciously desires and promises to meet these needs–in his time and in his way. Sound biblical teaching and real–life examples from this popular preacher will encourage Christians who want to tap into God’s supply for their lives.

Relying on the Holy Spirit

  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 104

There is no such thing as an average Christian life. Either you are living a vibrant Spirit-filled life, or you aren’t. You are in forward motion or in a pause position. You are living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, or you aren’t.

Listening to God

  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 113

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

One of the most important lessons in life is how to listen to God. In our complex and hectic lives, nothing is more urgent, nothing more necessary, and nothing more rewarding than hearing what God has to say to us, both as bodies of believers and as individual people.

Our God is not a speechless God. Our God is alive and active in our world. He speaks! Furthermore, he doesn’t speak to us in veiled terms, riddles, or mysteries. He speaks to us plainly. The goal of any communicator is not to speak well but to be heard. God speaks in a way that we can hear him, receive his message clearly, and understand with precision what he wants us to do.

Overcoming the Enemy

  • Publication Date: 1997

In Overcoming the Enemy, Charles Stanley sheds light on the nature of our enemy. He exposes many of the tactics and strategies Satan uses to bring heartache and sorrow.

God made you to have feelings. He has a desire for you to experience his presence with your emotions, to express yourself emotionally, and to have an emotional relationship with other people. The Lord desires that you become emotionally whole.

For most of us, the realm of emotions has uncharted territories. We are unsure of the language of emotions. We have neglected or feared to explore areas of the inner life. Recognize at the outset of this study that if this is true for you, it is likely true for every other person you know. Give family members, your circle of friends, other church members, your Bible study group, the freedom to err on their way toward emotional health.
