Too often, however, the force of trouble’s impact stuns us into shocked silence. Where do we find our “prayer voice” when our world lies in shambles, fear paralyzes our thinking, and vicious foes threaten everything we hold dear?

|Making Sanity Out of Vanity Christian Realism in the Book of Ecclesiastes“The message of Ecclesiastes has an amazingly contemporary ring to it; but with one important caveat. It does not merely reflect the mood of confusion and disillusionment with life that pervades an entire generation today, it also provides answers that today’s world does not have. Stan Gale uses Ecclesiastes, in his own words, as a ‘lens’ through which to view the spectrum of life and in doing so has done our generation a service. He allows this book from another world to speak eloquently into ours to help us make sense of it in light of eternity.” ~ Mark G. Johnston, PastorEP Books, ©2011, Stanley D.

In A Vine-Ripened Life, author Stanley Gale points us to Jesus, the Vine of life of John 15, in whom we, as branches, must live and grow to bear the fruit of a grace-grown life. He explains, “Having begun in Christ we remain in Christ, continuing to draw our life from Him and maturing in grace.” With pastoral sensitivity and an engaging style, Gale teaches readers both about the fruit of Christian character and how to cultivate it.

|Why Must We Forgive? Cultivating Biblical Godliness Series
Jesus taught believers to pray, “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors” (Matt. 6:12). Paul urged Christ’s followers to forgive one another as Christ forgave them (Col. 3:13). Christ gives Christians a mandate to forgive and provides a model of forgiveness that is necessary for healthy relationships. But what is forgiveness, and how should we practice it? In How Should We Forgive?, Pastor Stanley Gale considers the nature of the forgiveness we receive from God, its role in our ongoing relationship with Him, and the way we must reciprocate by forgiving others as we have been forgiven.
|Finding Forgiveness Discovering the Healing Power of the Gospel
If you are a Christian, you have personally experienced the joy of sins forgiven and reconciliation with God. Forgiveness, writes Stanley Gale, “is a divine accomplishment to be savored and offered to others.” Forgiveness is the most basic of Christian graces, yet the topic raises many questions, including these: Is it biblical to “forgive and forget”? Why do we need to confess our sins if they are already forgiven? How do we actually go about forgiving someone? Does the Bible give a place to forgiving ourselves? What does life look like after forgiveness?In Finding Forgiveness, you will discover practical answers to these questions and many others. With pastoral warmth, the author will help you see how the awe of the gospel dawns anew for those who apply forgiveness and experience the healing of a burdened spirit or broken relationship.
