God doesn’t make mistakes

Check out this excerpt from the cover story:

“When Lysa TerKeurst—author, speaker, and mother of five—began working for Proverbs 31 Ministries, she felt ‘like God made a mistake in calling me because I was hyper-aware of my imperfections.’ Then, through a friend’s Bible study, TerKeurst discovered ‘the concept of my identity being in Christ—that I was a dearly loved child of God, and his love is not based on my performance.’ Now, ‘reading God’s Word is exciting because I need it. I am so desperate to know how to do life in the way God wants me to.’”

BSM is full of articles and tools to help you grow in your faith. Along with a fantastic article on Lysa Terkeurst, the September-October issue digs into The Gospel through Oppression and Freedom with Pastor Gelu Paul-Faina, and explores 1–3 John with “Not Your Average Bible Study.” You’ll also find D.I.Y. Bible study tips, thoughts from the Church fathers, things they don’t tell you in church, and more.

Two Bundles for Teens: Prayer, Relationships, and Encouragement

one-life-50-powerful-devotions-for-students

We’ve created two special bundles for teen guys and girls full of spiritual guidance, relational advice, and more. If you have a teen, work in youth ministry, or know a teen that could use some encouragement, these bundles are worth sharing.

Both bundles are 70% off today only! Get the For Teen Guys bundle, filled with 5 titles for $19.99, or get the For Teen Girls bundle with 5 resources for $21.99.

For Teen Guys

True Purity by Hayley & Michael DiMarco

In their honest, down-to-earth style, Hayley and Michael explain that purity starts in the heart and involves every thought, desire, and action–not just sex. They show that purity isn’t just for the superspiritual, but that it is a daily choice that every teen must make. And most importantly, they show teens that it’s never too late to become pure and that lost purity can be redeemed through God’s grace.

 

The Manual to Manhood by Jonahtan Catherman

There’s a lot a guy needs to know as he grows up and makes his way in the world. For all the guys out there who want to have it all together, Jonathan Catherman offers this collection of one hundred step-by-step instructions on almost everything a guy needs to know, including how to: wear cologne correctly, manage a credit card, and talk to a girl.

 

Stomping Out the Darkness by Neil T. Anderson

Do you want to break free of all of the garbage and negative thoughts that cloud your mind to see who you really are? Stomping Out the Darkness shows how to break through and see yourself through God’s eyes. On these pages, you’ll discover that God has had a plan for your life from the beginning of time–and, even though something went wrong with that plan, God has put everything back in order through Jesus. All you have to do is believe.

 

Pursue God by Poncho Lowder

With the fast pace of our culture today, people struggle more than ever developing a daily relationship with God. And, often, those who do have  daily time with God may find themselves doing it out of duty rather than a personal relationship with him. Pursue God helps readers develop an authentic daily relationship where they are inspired to pursue God, discussing both the why and how of effective pursuit.

 

One Life by Jim Burns

These fifty devotional readings cover many of the major issues of life and faith that students wrestle with today. Sexual purity, the pressure to compromise, family relationships, trusting God, servanthood, worry, fatigue, and daily surrender are just a few of the topics Burns explores. Scripture and personal application questions are integrated throughout, while historical and contemporary stories, quotes, profiles of courage, and even illustrations from children’s literature help students relate these concepts to their lives. Youth leaders and parents will find this a tremendous resource for teaching, while young adults will enjoy the book for use in their personal quiet time.

 

For Teen Girls

Obsessed by Hayley DiMarco

Are you obsessed? We can all feel that way at times when all our thoughts, time, and energy are poured into something all-consuming. But for too many teen girls, obsession becomes a way of life. In Obsessed, bestselling author Hayley DiMarco helps those girls leave behind the thoughts, actions, and stuff that so easily gets between them and God. She challenges them to look at three key areas where it all tends to start: obsession with losing (fear, worry, stress, busyness), obsession with gaining (love, stuff, success), and obsession with numbing (addiction, cutting, eating, purging, controlling, comfort.) Obsessed helps girls to identify the unhealthy affections in their lives and points them to God to be set free from them.

Over It by Hayley & Michael DiMarco

Bestselling authors Hayley DiMarco and Michael DiMarco show teens how to pick themselves up, move on, and deal with it. With a potent combination of empathy, tough love, Scripture, and wit, the DiMarcos lead teens through true recovery. As always, they avoid platitudes and tell it like it is—which is what teens really want. Parents, youth leaders, counselors, and teens will find that Over It is the book they’ve been waiting for.

Devotions for Real Life by Melody Carlson

Teen girls are looking for substance and spiritual guidance that can make a difference in their lives. Devotions for Real Life gives them what they want. With inspiration and insight, Carlson offers girls a way to encounter Jesus’ words for their own personal growth and practical application. She shares with her readers the life-changing message of Jesus, giving them something to lean on in the turbulent time of adolescence. This devotional will strengthen their faith and help them study the Bible for all it’s worth.

 

Mean Girls by Hayley DiMarco

This one-of-a-kind book has helped end the cycle of meanness for tens of thousands of girls. Mean Girls is a call to spiritual strength. A call to stand firm. It calls girls to face the beasts in their lives head on. In short, it’s the answer girls need for the problem they never thought could go away. This revised edition of Mean Girls will reach junior highers and high schoolers where they are with the help and advice they crave.

Devotions for the God Girl by Hayley DiMarco

In this 365-day devotional, Hayley DiMarco guides girls ages 14-18 on a daily journey of learning more about who God is and who he created them to be. Each one-page devotional contains a verse of the day along with a brief reflection that unpacks spiritual truths about becoming a woman of God. In each entry Hayley challenges girls to choose God’s way in every area of their life—with their thoughts, actions, and daily choices about everything from friends and fashion to faith.

UFOs, Conspiracies, and Biblical Theology: An Interview with Dr. Michael Heiser

The Portent

Today’s interview is with Dr. Michael Heiser, who is the academic editor for Logos Bible Software, Bible Study Magazine, and the Faithlife Study Bible. His latest book, The Portent, picks up where the cliffhanger ending of The Façade, left off.

1. For those who have not yet read the previous book, can you tell us a little about The Façade?

The plot of The Façade is driven by the fate of a team of scholars who were “recruited” for an above-top-secret project against their will by a mysterious cabal of military insiders referred to only as “the Group.” Comprised of experts in fields as diverse and unrelated as psychology, atmospheric science, bovine biochemistry, environmental biology, apocalyptic cults and militia groups, and the Hebrew Bible, the team is only told that they represent the last line of defense against a global climatic disaster.

In order to gain the team’s trust, the Group authorizes successive levels of disclosure and access to classified documents, technologies, and artifacts. But it soon becomes apparent that nothing is what it seems at their undisclosed location—and the reason they’ve been assembled is quite different than what they’ve been told. The Façade follows the team as they unpeel layer after layer of deception and counter-deception, heading toward a shocking revelation that will alter mankind’s perception of itself forever—if they can discern which lie to believe.

Fundamentally, The Façade asks two questions: (1) If humanity learned that intelligent extraterrestrial life existed and had been to earth, how would that impact traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs? (2) What if the beings everyone thought were extraterrestrial life were something worse?

2. For those who have read The Façade, what new things can they expect from The Portent?

The Portent picks up several months after the ending of The Façade. Brian and Melissa have managed to maintain anonymity in view of their circumstances at the end of The Façade. They’re trying to build new lives, while living in constant fear of exposure. But they’re in it together, and they’re absolutely committed to each other, though there’s a lot of personal uncertainty about what that means for the future. As readers of The Façade will know, they both have issues.

Eventually the unthinkable—but inevitable—happens. A series of seemingly disconnected and unanticipated events leaves them vulnerable to exposure, forcing them to make more life-altering decisions. One of the things I want readers to think about in The Portent is the role of providence in our lives. Brian and Melissa get caught up (again) in circumstances beyond their control that converge in both advantageous and deadly ways.

Like The Façade, the sequel takes readers into all sorts of subjects. For me, writing fiction is like writing a thesis. I do an enormous amount of research for all the elements in the story. Just like it was in The Façade, every ancient text, every quotation from historical figures, every academic study or journal article, and every government document in the story is real. The Portent takes readers into the intellectual roots of ancient astronaut theory (philosophical, religious, occult), technological achievements during the second world war and the Cold War era that are not part of mainstream knowledge, and true elements of Cold War conspiracy. But the sequel—along with its plot and sub-plots—involves much more. The Portent draws from serious scholarship in biblical studies, archaeology, Vedic studies (Indo-Aryan origins), astronomy, Nazi occultism, Gnosticism, Minoan studies, human migration, genetics, synthetic biology, and nanotechnology.

3. The word portent refers to something ominous coming in the future—an omen—why that title?

I picked the title because the plotline of The Portent gets into the future plans of the adversary introduced in The Façade. The Portent gave me an opportunity to put myself in the place of intelligent evil and ask how I might use common expectations and beliefs to accomplish my ends. How might I simultaneously confirm and undermine what people believe and think—and to what end? The agenda has something to do with the extraterrestrial and theological breadcrumb trails that were part of the storyline in The Façade.

4. What prompted you to write these books?

I’m interested in all the subjects touched on in The Façade and The Portent. They all connect to biblical theology and biblical history. Too many Christians isolate the Bible from other disciplines and subjects. I want Christians to see how theology and these other ideas are more inter-related than they suppose. I also want my readers to know that there’s a lot of mystery in the world. The truth really is often stranger than fiction, but sometimes it takes fiction to get people to realize that.

5. To what extent are the things described in these books based on reality?

As was the case with The Façade, all of the data points are real—historical figures, ancient texts, research that characters refer to, government programs and documents, etc. Readers often doubt this, so I’ve provided a pretty extensive bibliography. In the case of The Portent, all that data is available in a separate handbook, which is available through my website. I use the novel to connect the data points together in a story driven by fictional characters.

6. What would you like people to walk away with after reading The Portent?

I’d like them to see that Christian fiction can be intelligent and unpredictable. I want to challenge readers to think carefully about cutting-edge ideas and technology that will alter our perception of who we are, human destiny, and the role of faith in the future. I also want readers see that the spiritual world they think they know would be thought of quite differently if we viewed Scripture through ancient eyes. I use the discoveries, conspiracies, and technologies of the “black” world of the military industrial complex to help readers understand that the spiritual world is closer to us than we realize, emphasizing the importance of careful theological thinking.

Pick up Dr. Heiser’s new book The Portent today! And if you haven’t read it yet, be sure to get The Façade to read first.
