Hearts of Faith: How We Became SDA
Expectation, exultation, bewilderment, and despair—these were the emotions amid which the Seventh-day Adventist Church was conceived. Hearts of Faith recounts the story of the transition from the weeping that followed the Great Disappointment of October 22, 1844, to the hopeful emergence of the infant Seventh-day Adventist Church 19 years later.
Though the story of the SDA Church’s history has often been told, this critical span has been largely ignored, as if the church was an inescapable outcome of the Great Disappointment. This book argues, however, that the 19-year interval was both crucial and did not have a predetermined outcome. The choices the pioneers made shaped the denomination they would go on to establish and its impact on the world for generations.
Hearts of Faith briefly reviews the Millerite Adventist movement, explores the history of Sabbatarian Adventists, and pores over the vital development of a common identity among those who still held on to the blessed hope of Christ’s soon return.
Get to know the roots of this prophetic community of faith and develop a renewed awe for how God has harnessed the passion of His people to accomplish His work, near and far.
Do you ever worry that it’s too hard to keep God’s law and fear that you won’t be able to keep it well enough to be saved? Maybe you’re so convinced of your unworthiness that you’ve resigned yourself to being lost and, like the author’s high school classmate, figure, “Hell’s not so bad. It’s just a little burning, and then it’s over.”
If so, here’s some life-changing news!
God didn’t give you the Ten Commandments to save you from hell when you die (Jesus did that). He gave you the Ten Commandments to save you from living in hell until you die.
In The Ten, you’ll find out when God gave the Ten Commandments to His people—and why it matters. You’ll also discover why He gave them (hint: it wasn’t to assert arbitrary control over people). Then, unwrap the Ten Commandments one by one, exploring how each reveals a picture of God and the priceless, practical gifts packaged within.
Legalism—ripping the responsibility for our salvation from Jesus’ nail-pierced hands—is a burden so great that it causes spiritual exhaustion and collapse. Instead of viewing the Ten Commandments as a cross to bear or an obstacle to heaven, The Ten will show you that by loving the Savior and accepting the wisdom He gives through grace, we can really live, avoiding much of the pain that comes when we disregard God’s instruction.
Habits of the Heart: Biblical Principles for Growing Christian
Do you remember your first encounter with God?
And after you first committed your life to Christ, did you wonder, “OK, now what?” Growing Christians often need a spiritual mentor—someone to share insights, offer tips for growth, and point out potential pitfalls along the journey.
In Habits of the Heart, author Kenneth Crawford highlights principles for spiritual growth drawn from his own testimony and Christian experience.
Start by exploring strategies for establishing and growing God’s kingdom in your own heart because there is no more cruel existence in the realm of Christianity than a life without the assurance of salvation. Learn to give God permission to change you, listen as He communicates, and intentionally experience gratitude.
Then dive into ways you can share the story of God’s work in your life. The most powerful witness you have on earth is the story of what Jesus has done for you. The devil cannot dispute it; atheists cannot deny it; agnostics cannot argue against it. By sharing, you can bring your faith walk full circle by mentoring other growing Christians.
If you’re longing for a deeper experience with Jesus, it’s time to embrace the Habits of the Heart.

Prayer Still Moves Mountains
Do you ever get so shaken in the middle of a book that you skip to the end to make sure everything turns out OK?
As Christians, we believe our story ends with “happily ever after.” Until then, “God moments” are abundant, even in the midst of life’s chaos.
Prayer Still Moves Mountains reminds us that God loves to respond to the sincere prayers of His children. He still performs miracles through us and for us, allows angels to touch our lives, and waits alongside us for eternity’s arrival. Through these pages, you’ll learn how to:
know who you are in Christ,
respond to people who have anger issues,
remain assured when loved ones die,
discern if a door is closed or open,
God is not watching from a safe distance. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and His army of holy angels, God has heavenly boots on the ground right now, guiding our steps and answering our calls for help. This compilation of heartfelt, personal vignettes about answered prayer will renew your spiritual strength for the last chapter of Earth’s story.
40 Days: Prayers and Devotions on the Sovereignty of God
This world has gone mad. Is God really in charge?
Many times in Scripture, God tells us not to be afraid. So how do we do that? Understanding what the Bible teaches about God’s sovereignty is the key to experiencing a life of peace instead of one brimming with fear and anxiety.
In 40 Days: Prayers and Devotions on the Sovereignty of God, you’ll discover:
why God’s sovereignty matters,
how nature reveals God’s sovereignty,
what role predestination plays in restoration,
whether God is in control of evil people, and so much more. Banish fear by reviewing the evidence that God is, indeed, sovereign—yesterday, today, and forever.
This is the thirteenth book in the 40 Days devotional series. As with the first twelve books, this devotional is designed to prepare God’s church for Christ’s second coming as well as to help His people reach out to others in preparation for that glorious event. This preparation begins with church members who are willing to commit to forty days of prayer and devotional study to develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.
Are you ready to be amazed?
Being courageous and fearless doesn’t mean you’re not scared, worried, panicky, or wishing you didn’t have to do what needs to be done. It simply means that you’re feeling scared, worried, panicky, wishing you didn’t have to do what needs to be done, and then doing it anyway. That takes guts!
As you’ll discover in these pages, people who choose courage over fear end up learning valuable lessons, too. Their experiences actually make their faith in God stronger and give them power to deal with life’s dangerous and sometimes unfair challenges—both large and small. It’s true! Because, with God on their side, they actually fear less.
Throughout the book, you’ll also find some “Be Fearless” pages sprinkled in. They may help you grow your own personal brand of courage. That way, you’ll be ready to show others how to experience less fear and to be courageous kids!
