Ebola and the Genesis of Germs

ebola strainThe latest epidemic of hemorrhagic fever caused by the Ebola virus has captured the international news headlines. The Ebola outbreak is currently wreaking havoc in Africa and scares many in this country as two missionaries return back to the United States for treatment. The suspected cases approach 2000 and the confirmed deaths by August 8 have reached 921. The numbers of cases reported in West Africa this year are more than triple of any epidemic since the disease was first described in 1976.

Jeana Floyd knows these challenges well and has created this faith-affirming guide for pastors’ wives. Sharing years of wisdom and insight from her participation in her husband’s growing and visionary ministry.

Church Diversity: Sunday the Most Segregated Day of the Week
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best over 45 years ago: “We must face the sad fact that at 11 o’clock on Sunday morning, when we stand to sing… we stand in the most segregated hour in America.” What an unfortunate reality that many still face today. Have you ever been asked the question, “Is your church a white church or a black church?”…No, it’s God’s Church!

Transforming Church in Rural America
Small church buildings dotting the countryside are home to ministries that often struggle with limited attendance, no money, and little expectation that change can revitalize their future. In Transforming Church in Rural America, Pastor Shannon O’Dell shares a powerful vision of relevance, possibility, and excellence for these small churches, or for any ministry that is stuck in a ‘rural’ state of mind.

Already Gone
If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of the young people who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; soon they will be gone for good. This is the alarming conclusion from a study Answers in Genesis commissioned from America’s Research Group, led by respected researcher Britt Beemer. The results may unnerve you – they may shake long-held assumptions to the core – but these results need to be taken seriously by the church.

The Defender’s Guide for Life’s Toughest Questions
It’s tough to be a believer in today’s world- especially if you are a student in an academic system intent on destroying your faith. Bestselling author and television co-host, Ray Comfort, has collected some of the toughest questions people will face in defending their faith and offers sound biblical responses. Each issue is one that has been raised by genuine atheists. Don’t be without these powerful facts when you face a world trying to twist and confuse biblical truth.

The Fall of Satan
Today, many question and even mock the very existence of Satan, as well as the reality of evil. Even in the Church, by and large, there are few biblical resources on the subject to counter the destructive claims raised in today’s humanistic culture. In The Fall of Satan: Rebels in the Garden you will discover the answers to 35 captivating questions about Satan and evil.

Old Earth Creationism on Trial
Join authors Dr. Jason Lisle and Tim Chaffey as they put forth a case against an old-earth interpretation of Scripture. A comprehensive biblical, theological, and scientific critique of old-earth creationism, the book presents its compelling testimony in layman’s terms to create a powerful debate that leads to unquestionable truth.

Why Great Men Fall
Your head sits heavily in your hands as the last employee turns out the last light and goes home for the night, leaving you alone in the dark with your failure and desperation. This scene is played-out daily in offices all over America, as leaders in corporations, churches, and organizations free-fall from moral or ethical failure. For everyone who has found himself in this terrible dilemma, and to those who can still avoid it ? this book is like a beacon. There is a fail-safe guide for remaining on the right path, and Why Great Men Fall illustrates that safe route in a riveting way.

What’s Your Passion?
If we are Christians, we have a command from the Lord to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, to everyone! How many of us, though, really do? How many of us actively share our faith? Perhaps, if we?re honest, not many of us are doing much to fulfill the Great Commision. Enter Ken Gaub. This ‘witnessing dynamo; has spent the past half-century enthusiastically obeying our Lord. Ken is a man with rare communication skills, an evangelist traveling the globe to increase the Kingdom. He relates practical ways to overcome social barriers, awkwardness, and roadblocks of all kinds to effect a bold change in a person?s witnessing habits.
