2022 Holiday Gift Guide for Book Lovers

2022 Holiday Gift Guide for Book Lovers

Find the perfect gift for each book lover on your Christmas list.

Americans are reading less than ever. And it’s no wonder, is it? Our world is rife with conflict. Historic floods and fires rage. We’re facing housing and higher education crises. Workers are quitting their jobs en masse. In the wake of it all, it’s easy to see why many of us zone out with a few hours on our phones while only dedicating about 15 minutes to reading for pleasure.

Reaching for a screen often feels like the quickest way to take a break from the chaos, but excessive use can lead to increased depression and anxiety. And while reading may feel like it takes more effort, science tells us that those who escape to pages instead of pixels are some of the most relaxed among us. And the benefits don’t stop there.

From building vocabulary in childhood to boosting adult mental health, regular reading improves the quality of life in critical ways like increased empathy, decreased muscle tension, and even a longer lifespan. Bookworms not only display greater cognitive intelligence but emotional intelligence as well. In an era marked by discord and division, it might just be the readers who find the wise words and hope for healing our communities crave.

This holiday season, give the gift of perspective and reflection, of mental acuity and better health. Give a book. And maybe slip a story into your own stocking as well.

Dark Interception

Dark Interception

When dark forces rise, are faith and firepower enough?

On the eve of his medical retirement, Navy SEAL Jedidiah Johnson receives a frantic call from his estranged childhood best friend David Yarnell. David’s daughter has been kidnapped off the streets of Nashville in broad daylight. The police have no suspects and no leads. The only clue: the body of a dead priest left behind at the scene. With the clock ticking, David is growing desperate, as is his wife, Rachel . . . Jed’s first love.

Despite his painful history with David and Rachel, Jed agrees to help. But he’s spent his career as a door-kicking Navy SEAL, not an investigator. His presence immediately draws unwanted attention, creates friction with the local police, and triggers a mysterious attempt on his life. Just when he thinks things can’t get worse, it starts to happen again—the voices in his head, the nightmares, the visions. Dark memories and strange abilities, things he believed he’d left behind when he fled Nashville for the Navy at eighteen, begin to resurface.

Jed realizes that to save the missing girl, he must take a leap of faith and embrace the gifts he’s denied for all these years. To foil this dark intercept, he’ll need more than just his years as a SEAL operator, because he has no choice now but to take up arms and join the battle in the unseen spiritual warfare raging all around him. And there is far more at stake than just a missing girl: the world is not the place he thought it was—and he is not alone.

Follow the military heroes of The Shepherds series as they bring the power of light into the dark mystery of Sara Beth’s abduction.

Shepherding the Shepherd

Shepherding the Shepherd

By Lee Eclov

From CT’s Preaching Today, a new devotional designed to replenish your spirit and provide inspiration and encouragement, by pouring into your life as you share God’s love with the world.

In Shepherding the Shepherd, retired pastor Lee Eclov offers 52 weekly letters from the perspective of a friend and fellow shepherd to encourage and inspire you. He knows that while shepherds are frequently pictured as calm, their work is hard. Seldom do outsiders see a shepherd fend off sheep who’ve turned on him, or care for one bloodied by wolves. Or even share some laughs with other shepherds about the antics and foibles of the sheep in their care.

Pastor Eclov comes along side as a trusted confidant who understands the joy pastors experience in loving and feeding their flocks. His letters read like a friend-to-friend chat—refreshingly not glib about the realities of pastoring, nor another lecture on what to do.

King Solomon's Empire

King Solomon's Empire

King Solomon is known as the wisest and richest man to have ever lived, but who was this man really? Even though we read his words in the Bible, this man who was the son of “the man after God’s own heart” remains a mystery to this day. Even his death is veiled in conspiracy theories. How could a man who was granted his greatest wish by God Himself be so enamored with the pleasures of this world—hungry for sex, power, and more wealth?

In King Solomon’s Empire, Archie and Margaret Roy take an in-depth look into the life of the wise king and the kingdom he led. Through this study, the reader will come to understand the time in which King Solomon ruled, enter into the temple that he built for his God, and follow his path to a life of “striving after wind.” While the mystery still remains unsolved, perhaps the reader will come to learn some lessons from the man and avoid some of the pitfalls in their own life, as there is truly “nothing new under the sun.”

Behind the Cross

Behind the Cross

As the devil and his cohorts rallied accusation after accusation upon the Son of Man, Jesus was alone, in pain, and bewildered while the sins of all mankind were laid to his charge. This is a glimpse into the unseen realm behind the event. We are familiar with Christ crucified for our sins, but what were the realities in the realm of the spirit?

The courtroom of heaven is assembled with God the Father as the judge, Satan as the prosecutor, and Jesus as the defendant. The place is Golgotha. The date is 34 A.D. The trial is set to begin.

This book—Behind the Cross: The Depths of the Work of the Cross—takes a peek behind the curtain. The Word of God, the Bible, gives an ominous picture of the One who was sacrificed for the sins of the world.

Breaking Open

Breaking Open

In a broken world, we ache for a way to walk through life without giving up or giving in. Instead of breaking down, Jesus offers us another way: breaking open. Discover a new way of living and rise with hope, power, and purpose!

Everyone aches to be whole. We ache to be healed. We ache to be restored. But most of the time we wouldn’t put it into words. We just know we are broken because our child is addicted. We ache because the depression of our youth is now the depression of our golden years. We are stretched to the point of breaking because our career ambitions position us to commit to a pace we can’t sustain. Miscarriage, divorce, loneliness. In all of it, we ache.

In Breaking Open, Pastor Jacob Armstrong exposes the seven dangerous ways that we commonly seek to avoid a breakdown, showing how these seven ways are stealing life from us, and then walks us through a progression of seven Jesus-ways that move us from merely breaking to breaking open. It is these Jesus-ways that get us to the good stuff: a life filled with hope and opportunity.

The God Who Stays

The God Who Stays

Have you ever felt adrift and alone after losing a job, a dream, a loved one, or your sense of purpose in life? In The God Who Stays, Matthew West uses stories and Scripture to encourage you that wherever you are and whatever you’re going through, God is right by your side—and nothing can separate you from His love and grace.

Through the dramatic events of 2020 and the ensuing uncertainty and anxiety ever since, people’s lives and illusions of security have been turned upside down. Whenever our plans, hopes, and dreams are put on hold—or worse, lost forever—we feel discouraged, lost, and isolated, and desperately praying, “God, where are you?”

Matthew West’s newest book, The God Who Stays, is an engaging and thoughtful exploration, balanced with his trademark wit and humor, that helps us reconnect to the biblical truth of Immanuel—“God with us”—a personal Savior who never leaves our side and who always answers when we cry out for help.

In 2016, a year after releasing his book Jesus Speaks, bestselling author Steven K. Scott’s mentor and dearest friend, Gary Smalley, fell asleep in his bed and woke up in heaven. Steven had lost not only his best friend of forty-three years but also his most enthusiastic encourager.

Brokenhearted, he lost his passion to write.

With so many people living in a world of hurt and uncertainty, The Joseph Principles gives you what you need to heal your hurts and successfully navigate through current trials and future adversities. By following examples from Joseph’s life and the corresponding teachings of Jesus, begin confronting your deepest hurts and find freedom, using your past trauma as a springboard to a closer relationship with God.

Political Gospel

Political Gospel

Christians are constantly being accused of being too political or not political enough.

Often, the accusations are fair. Christians tend to get stuck in one of two political ditches: we either privatize our faith or make it partisan. We think religion and politics should be separate and never intermingle, or we align so tightly with a political party that we conflate the gospel with a human agenda.

In Political Gospel, Patrick Schreiner argues Christianity not only has political implications but is itself a politic. The gospel at its very core is political—Jesus declared himself to be king. But he does not allow you to put him in your political box.

In a supercharged political climate, Political Gospel explores what it means for Christians to have a biblical public witness by looking to Scripture, the early church, and today. Should we submit to governing authorities or subvert them? Are we to view them as agents of the dark forces or entities that promote order? In these pages, we’ll see that Christians live in a paradox, and we’ll see how to follow Christ our king right into the political craziness of our day.

Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life" (Philippians 4:6–7 MSG).
