It's that time when all resources and effort must be expended to reach the goal. It's that time when the men get separated from the boys. During this time, committed athletes who perform at their peak level distance themselves from those players who just show up.

These readings mix faith, stories, and information to inspire and entertain everyone who loves the game of football.

Every hunter knows the thrill of pursuing a majestic elk, a dangerous grizzly bear, or a ferocious wild boar. But this exhilaration is nothing compared with the adventure of seeking God. As a nationally renowned sportsman and story teller, Jim Grassi knows the ins and outs of hunting wild game. He is in the record book with bow and arrow. And with his pastor's heart and knowledge of Scripture, he is the ideal guide for an exploration of the God who created all of nature.

The Ultimate Hunt reveals the character and attributes of God through powerful biblical insights and dramatic real-life stories that capture the excitement of the hunt. As you track wild game through dense forests with Jim and some of his friends, you'll also learn about God's awesome power, liberating grace, and unconditional love. You'll quickly see why the search for a deeper relationship with God is the ultimate hunt.

Thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter make this an ideal group or individual study.

Wading through the Chaos: Seeking God's Perspective on Life's Journey

If ever there was a time when we need to comfort and encourage one another—it is now! America has never experienced the depth of moral, spiritual, and economic decay that presently exists. Stress and anxiety abound everywhere—often producing despair, fear, and depression.

Too often our thoughts and actions are captive to being stressed for success. The tyranny of the urgent replaces those things in life that are truly important and eternal. Our frantic culture puts forth philosophies such as:

  • It's better to burn out than rust out
  • Enough is never enough
  • Being number one is all that matters
  • Being important is more important than doing what is important

Wading through the Chaos helps us to gain a biblical perspective on life. True success is defined through those attitudes and actions that have significance and an eternal perspective. We can learn to live a joy-filled life that experiences God's comfort and peace by meditating upon His Word through daily devotions. Through beautiful metaphors and short stories you will see a biblical perspective on problem solving and crisis management.
