Heaven's Perspective takes you on an incredible journey of seeing life through a different lens: the eyes of heaven. Seventeen ordinary Christians share intimate stories of their most painful experiences in life--but then Jesus steps in, rewriting their suffering as glory, loss as the fuel for their destiny and filling the deepest desires of their hearts. A mother learns that the son she lost will never experience a day without her in heaven. A missionary harassed by the KGB learns the secret rescue mission Father sent him for, a thrice-divorced woman sees Jesus take her shame away for ever--and much more. You'll learn to reinterpret your own life in the light of glory while you absorb tools for doing the same with others.

Questions for Jesus Game
54 cards, instructions, acrylic case and timer

The Questions for Jesus Game makes heart-level encounters with Jesus fun! Simply ask Jesus an intimate question, listen for one minute (by the included timer), and then get ready to be delighted as everyone shares the amazing, touching, revelatory things Jesus says! It's easy to hear, because you are asking him about the thing he most wants to talk about: your relationship. You'll ask questions like:

  • "Jesus, what is heaven giving me a standing ovation for today?"
  • "What do you remember about the day I gave my heart to you?"
  • "How is a hug in heaven better than one on earth?"
  • "Jesus, what do you tell the angels that you like about me?"

There are four categories of questions (200 in all) for hours of fun: Desire Fulfilled, For Kids, Offbeat, and Heaven. It's perfect for parties with a purpose, small group encounters, or even to use at the dinner table instead of a perfunctory mealtime prayer.

Read an In-Depth Review

For too long, Christians have taken a delivery approach to spiritual formation: we memorize key verses and snappy concepts to spring on our un-churched neighbors; we provide fill-in-the-blank study courses for believers who want to grow in faith; we strive to tell, teach and transfer what we know.

But there's a better approach. By using a conversational, coaching approach to spiritual formation, you can open wide the doors that help others expand their commitment to Christ. Easy to learn and to apply, the concepts in Faith Coaching help you to leverage the power of coaching conversations to help people find and follow a genuine spiritual path.
