A New Testament transfer that surprises the mind and the Hore touched.
With this New Testament translation, Fred Ritzhaupt brings you closer to the God whom Jesus introduced as "Abba, Father." God's invitation to enter into a personal relationship with Him is emphasized in the text.
This transmission combines the fresh liveliness of today's vernacular with the fidelity to the Greek Urtext. The renunciation of narration, the explanatory transitions and the beautiful sentence make reading a pure pleasure.
Anyone who discovers this father relationship with God has arrived, at last "at home". Our wish and prayer is that this transfer is a companion on the way home.

The irrepressible love of God
Imagine a stormy day on the sea: your ship is thrown back and forth by the waves and is exposed to the forces of nature. Forces that are untamed and awesome at the same time. For Brennan Manning, this is a fitting picture of God's love for us humans - a passionate love that knows no bounds.

The last word is love
Rob Bell grapples with the age-old question of heaven and hell, judgment, and grace, and creates a courageous, in the best sense, offensive image of a God in whom love has the last word.
Countless Christians of all times have struggled with the question of how faith can on the one hand say: God is love and on the other hand emphasizes the possibility that millions of people will be eternally separated from God. Rob Bell traces in this book the questions that arise from this tension. How can God take seriously the freedom of the person who requires love and at the same time achieve his own goal of winning all people for his love? And how can the biblical terms salvation, damnation, repentance, heaven and hell be understood? This book presents unusual perspectives that lead to the discovery: The good news is even better than we thought before.

The Café - Roman
Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, John Lynch
Everyone needs a place where they can be real. Actually, Steven Kerner has done it: high-paying job, great wife, well-behaved daughter. But after one of his infamous tantrums, his wife puts him out the door. Steven has to admit that his job does not satisfy him, he does not know how to save his marriage, and he has no one to talk to.
Suddenly, the eccentric Andy appears, who seems to know a lot about Steven. He takes him to Bo's Café - a place where acceptance, forgiveness and grace reign. There, in the midst of "failed existences", Steven's journey back to life begins - and to the God who loves him unconditionally.
From the mystery of faith
Fritz Binde (1867-1921) was a combative atheist and socialist with a pronounced speech with which he could captivate his listeners before his conversion. After returning to Jesus Christ, he placed his talent in the service of his Lord and became an intrepid witness of Jesus who preached the gospel in tents and halls. He also used his literary talent to encourage believers in numerous books and scriptures to live the faith uncompromisingly. A number of his most valuable essays (For example, “About the Secret of the Cross”, “The Secret of Faith”, “The Three Basic Conditions of Following Jesus”, etc.) are included in this volume.
Love and respect
A woman wants to be loved by her husband unconditionally. A man wants to be unconditionally respected by his wife. This is the biggest secret of a successful marriage. The biblically-based principles of this book will help you to better understand your partner and understand each other's hidden needs. Show your wife the love in everyday life that she longs for. And learn how to give your husband, day after day, the recognition and respect that is vital to him. You will see your partner with a completely different view - and your partnership will have unimaginable depth and familiarity.
To lead a life every day, in which we are completely sure that we are unconditionally loved by God - is that really possible, and what does that look like? Wayne Jacobsen teaches us, step by step, how deep God's love for us really is and how it affects us in our daily lives. An essential point is that we come to a clear revelation of why Jesus died on the cross for us. Jesus allowed sin and shame to consume his own body, so that we can now enjoy a relationship with his father. As a result, we discover that we are not called to slaves, but to sons and daughters. This father loves us stronger and deeper than anybody else in this world. His loving affection applies to us in all circumstances. We experience a living relationship with Him that frees us from the agony of shame and changes us so that we can live as His children.
Extra pure grace
This book goes down like oil - because Ryan Rufus announces in it a clear, salutary message for sore Christian souls. A belief based on misconceptions leads to a spiritual dead end. That is why Ryan Rufus clearly contrasts the sinister path of legalism and self-righteousness with the simple, liberating path of the grace of God. Even seasoned Christians do a good anointing with the refreshing theology of grace.

Discovering who you have already become in Christ always leads you to discover what he can and wants to do through you. The seven powerful teachings will help you to give grace to others with clarity and simplicity, evoking joy and enthusiasm.
The gospel in ten words

In Christ we are loved, reconciled, saved, united with Him, accepted, holy, just, dead, new and royal. There is no room for legalism and performance thinking.
The gospel in twenty questions
On the way out of legalism and into grace we are often full of questions. We need to learn who and how God is in truth and what the work of Jesus means to us. Our questions are like keys that unlock treasure troves. This book has answers and gives us the keys to a familiar relationship with God.
The questions in this book will lead you to new places. These will make you dance on the heights of your father's favor. Above all, they lead to a deeper relationship with Jesus, which is the grandest response of all.
John Lynch, Bruce McNicol, Bill Thrall
We thought we were healed, but most of us unconsciously brought an old, lifeless view into their new lives. This book makes the diagnosis that people are obsessed with coping with their sin problems on their own. This has poisoned the church and veiled the original Good News. We have set a standard that we could not live up to - and so we have convinced ourselves that it is God's standard. Some of us have said goodbye to this farce and become cynical, suspicious and indifferent.
The naked gospel
Jesus pure. 100% of course. Without additives
Away with all unnecessary ballast, back to the joyful, freeing message of Jesus Christ in its original form! That's what Andrew Farley is all about, who has personally experienced how legalism, religious pressure, and pious performance-thinking can lead to despair and depression-for not nearly everything that comes from Christianity is in the spirit of Christ. Farley's book is life-changing.
The author of this book takes us on a fascinating journey through God's history with the people. He explains God's various covenants - with Abraham, through Moses, and finally the new, eternal covenant in Jesus Christ. And he has it in him, because in Christ we are saved once and for all and at the same time heir of God. Especially in the overall view, it becomes clear that we can not add anything anymore. 'A challenging and important book. It shows the freedom that lies in the grace of God.
