Possessing Joy

In His presence is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11). Joy is to increase as we go deeper in our relationship with God. Religious tradition, however, has devalued the role that gladness and laughter have for personal victory and kingdom advancement. His presence may not always produce joy; but if we never or rarely have fullness of joy, we must reevaluate our concept of God. 

Higher Perspectives

This is a book that studies the incredible, life-altering beliefs of some of our favorite Bible characters. Their supernatural perspective is an invitation for us to see and experience life as they did.
