THE DANIEL CODE - LIVING OUT TRUTH IN A CULTURE THAT IS LOSING ITS WAY

Our culture brings new challenges to our Christian faith with each passing day. How should we live out our faith? Daniel was a young man who grew up rooted in a Judeo culture of traditional values. One day, he unexpectedly found himself in a culture that was foreign to everything he had known. His value system, his truth claims, his moral compass — all were challenged repeatedly at every turn. Not unlike our society today!

From the pages of Scripture, learn from Daniel how to exist in our culture while also engaging and thriving in it as well!

VIP: VERY INFLUENTIAL PERSON

In VIP, Hawkins takes a different look at the meaning of the popular acronym and challenges us to live not in pursuit of importance, but rather to influence others toward life-changing, eternal significance. No matter who you are, where you live, who you know or what you do, God has assigned a sphere of influence just to you. To be a person of influence, one must possess vision, integrity and purpose.

THE JAMES CODE - 52 SCRIPTURE PRINCIPLES FOR PUTTING YOUR FAITH INTO ACTION

Bestselling author of The Joshua Code and The Jesus Code, O.S. Hawkins is back with a new book that is all about putting your faith into action. The James Code is practical, personal and action-packed, straight from one of the most popular books of the Bible. Once readers have devoted themselves to Scripture memory in The Joshua Code, and have equipped themselves to give answers in The Jesus Code, The James Code challenges readers to give feet to their faith. Hawkins gives applicable truth from the book of James, emphasizing that an effective Christian life is not about faith and works, but is about faith that works.

For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."

THE FEAR FACTOR

Throughout the book of Acts, it is said of the early church that they "turned their world upside down" (Acts 17:6) and that they were being "multiplied." They experienced this spiritual dynamic without all the modern tools we enjoy today in translating the gospel to our world. They had no television, internet, CDs, DVDs, radio or Twitter accounts. The early church had no church planting techniques and no one was doing marketing surveys for them. But they were being multiplied... and we are not! The early church had something that somewhere along the way we have lost. And, if we can reclaim it, we, too, can rediscover the dynamic of first century Christianity. The secret lies in... THE FEAR FACTOR.

ANTOLOGY

What on earth is "antology" and what does it have to do with the issue of retirement? Solomon addressed this subject in a unique way when he challenged us to go to the ant... consider her ways and be wise. (Proverbs 6:6-8). The ant "stores" her provisions in the summer and "gathers" her provisions in harvest for a very important reason. Winter is coming! King Solomon reminds us that much can be learned from studying the ant as it particularly applies to our own winter season of life.

THE ART OF CONNECTING

From the past comes a piece of personal correspondence, written by a "people-strategist" to a wealthy entrepreneur almost 2,000 years ago. It contains only 22 sentences in less than a dozen brief paragraphs, and yet it is the most articulate case study in the building of positive, productive interpersonal relationships to be found anywhere. Fortunately, this ancient document, simply known as "Philemon," has found its way into the New Testament to be preserved for all posterity. When it comes to the bottom line, many of today's methods of building productive relationships are superficial and deceptive, resulting in short-term gain at best. The intent of this volume and the content of Philemon's letter is not just to win friends but to keep them in long-term, mutually beneficial, positive, productive interpersonal relationships.

THE QUESTION FOR OUR TIME: WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?

It seems that every epoch of Christian church history has a question from the lips our Lord. The days of the 21st Century are days of unbelievable challenge and opportunity. But Christ has a question for His church today. It is the issue all Christians must face for the next generation. It is the question of Matthew 16:15 - "Who do you say that I am?" Perhaps no other single topic will be under attack during our remaining days of ministry as much as the issue of the exclusivity of the gospel. When so many have gone the way of pluralism and inclusivism, God is asking today, "Who do you say that I am?"
