Not Even ISIS Can Scare Them Off Followers of Christ need to relearn what it means to stand courageously for their faith rather than merely survive in a climate of fear. Instead of motivating believers to action, today’s headlines appear to be paralyzing them. Standing in the Fire demonstrates the church triumphant through the lives of people who stood strong and didn’t run away in the face of overwhelming danger. These Middle Eastern heroes of faith fear God more than terrorist groups like ISIS. Supported by Tom Doyle’s commentary on events, the stories included show how these Christians are not living as victims, but victors in Christ.

Could you retain your faith even if it meant losing your life? Your family’s lives? To many Christians in the Middle East today, a “momentary, light affliction” means enduring only torture instead of martyrdom. The depth of oppression Jesus followers suffer is unimaginable to most Western Christians. Yet, it is an everyday reality for those who choose faith over survival in Syria, Iran, Egypt, Lebanon, and other countries hostile to the Gospel of Christ. InKilling Christians, Tom Doyle takes readers to the secret meetings, the torture rooms, the grim prisons, and even the executions that are the “calling” of countless Muslims-turned-Christians. Each survivor longs to share with brothers and sisters “on the outside” what Christ has taught them. Killing Christians is their message to readers who still enjoy freedom to practice their faith. None would wish their pain and suffering on those who do not have to brave such misery, but the richness gained through their remarkable trials are delivered—often in their own words—through this book. The stories are breathtaking, the lessons soul-stirring and renewing. Killing Christians presents the dead serious work of expanding and maintaining the Faith.

Jesusappears to be revealing Himself to Muslims through powerful dreams and visionsthroughout the Islamic world today, and the results are dramatic. Eleven years ago, Pastor Tom Doyle felt God callinghim to leave the pastorate and become a full-time missionary in the Middle Eastand Central Asia. Through his extensive work in the region, which includes over80 trips to places like Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Israel, Lebanon,and Turkey, Tom has met and recorded the stories of former Muslims who werefirst introduced to Jesus through either a dream or a vision that powerfullyopened their hearts to become followers of Christ. Though they live in the mostdangerous places in the world for people who leave Islam and embrace Christ,their passion for the Savior is contagious and inspirational. These are never-before-told stories from the front lines of the world of Islam. Through these unexplained supernatural occurrences, more Muslimshave become believers in the last ten years than in the last 15 centuries ofIslam. Why would God use dreams to reach the Muslim world? Can dreams and visions be trusted? What happens after these people experience a dream or vision? In Dreams and Visions, Tom Doyletakes the reader deep into the heart of the Middle East to meet believers who have been directly touched by the very hand of God.

Captivating True Story of God's Supernatural Love at Work As a child, Leanna's young world pulsed with adventure, including emergency moves across the country in an old Dodge Dart with a dismantled airplane strapped to the roof. By age fifteen, she had become an equestrian champion with sights fixed on the Olympics. Then, in a series of stunning revelations, Jesus appeared to her and revolutionized her life. A few years later, not expecting to return alive, she wrote a will for her parents, left everything behind, and embarked for northern India with a one-way ticket and a mission: to rescue people trapped in darkness. This firsthand, often-supernatural account follows the rigors, heartaches, and miracles of a life propelled by faith into one of the poorest and darkest places on earth. Leanna's fearless determination to shine Jesus' light into the shadows--whether helping the destitute in small villages or reaching girls abused in the sex-trafficking trade--will thrill and inspire you to believe his power can change even your most trying circumstances.

Through the years, our understanding of Jesus has been shaped by different cultural influences, and many Christians have forgotten that Jesus was a Jewish man living in a Jewish land, observing Jewish customs, and investing his life into Jewish men and women. Trading the popular, but inaccurate Western perspective of the Bible for the context in which Jesus actually ministered in 2000 years ago, author Robby Gallaty reveals the fascinating Hebraic culture, customs, and nuances many Christians have never experienced or learned about. By uncovering the teaching of the first and second century rabbis and Christian theologians, and highlighting little-known Jewish idioms and traditions, Gallaty takes Christians on a biblical journey to rediscover a forgotten Jesus from a biblical perspective, deepening your relationship with God.

When was the last time you felt a sense of hope in regard to the Middle East? When was the last time you even heard some good news about the Middle East? Missionary Tom Doyle, who travels extensively throughout this key region of the world, finds much cause for hope. In fact, he observes that a spiritual breakthrough has come to the Middle East. A new generation of believers, passionate for God in spite of great challenges, including persecution, provides reason for genuine hope. Breakthrough was written to tell their story. Doyle reports that in recent years amazing numbers of people in the Middle East—particularly Muslims but also individuals from Jewish or traditional Christian backgrounds—have come to Christ. While surveying how the Christian faith is blossoming in the Middle East, the heart of this book is its personal stories. You'll read about Hamsa, who drove a tank in Saddam Hussein's army during the first Gulf War. Since then Hamsa has become a Christian and today he is a pastor in Baghdad. Rachel grew up in Jerusalem as an Orthodox Jew. At a low point in her life she met some messianic believers. Though it has cost Rachel her relationship with her family, she has embraced Jesus in her own life. Rachel also exercises a fruitful gift of hospitality, inviting both Jews and Arabs into her home for dinner and fellowship nearly every evening. These stories and many more like them, will inform, inspire and challenge you to pray more effectively for the Muslim world in general and the Middle East in particular.

Based on research from more than 10,000 surveys from children and parents of divorce, Collateral Damage presents parents with an overview of the negative impact that divorce has on their children and offers ways to better serve their needs at this critical time. Approximately fifty percent of marriages in the United State fail. Add to that the increasing number of couples who never marry, have children together, and later go their separate ways. In all of these scenarios, children suffer greatly—often in silence, as parents do not know how to effectively guide their kids. When the sorrow and emotional issues of children are not addressed, the cycle of divorce is likely to continue for them and in generations that follow. In addition, while children may appear to be resilient and adjusting, without proper support children of divorce are more prone to drug and alcohol abuse, criminal behavior, mental and physical illness, and suicide. How can parents manage their own hurt, shock, anger, and despair so that they can provide their children with what they need? While Collateral Damage does not advocate divorce, it does sound a wakeup call for parents. It identifies the landmines inherent in the dangerous terrain of divorce and equips them to help their children not to feel abandoned or unheard. Topics covered include: Building the family—not losing it Tuning into your kids Stabilizing childhood Maintaining parent/child roles Avoiding the parenting handoff Keeping kids out of the war zone Instilling trust Keeping open lines of communication Attuning to guiding, spiritual resources The unfortunate failure of a marriage does not mean the end of the family. Providing a stable, supportive, healthy relationship with your child demonstrates what a loving relationship looks like, better preparing them for intimate relationships and marriage as an adult.
