Anchoring his daily life in the simple disciplines of Bible study and prayer, he used his time to ponder and write on deep spiritual issues. In April 1945, just a few weeks before World War II ended in Europe, the Nazis hanged Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He had written of “the cost of discipleship,” and paid that cost with his life.

Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. Grace is the church’s great distinctive.

(2 cassettes) 692 The God You May Not Know by David Jeremiah (Narrator: Kathleen Lane) Some say the greatest question in life is: Does God exist? I say the greatest question is: Do I know the God who does exist? Do I know about Him, and do I know Him personally? I want you to know the God you don’t know as well as you should. The study of God, as He reveals Himself in Scripture, is the supreme study of a lifetime. It lifts our thoughts, steadies our nerves, purifies our motives, expands our confidence, and strengthens our influence. It’s the greatest subject we could ever study, for God is the apex of all reality. You can know more about God than you do, and you can be closer to Him than you are.

Timothy Carter (Narrator: Kathleen Lane) When young Tim Carter started working at a prison to make money for college, he didn’t realize that he was signing away his life, his heart, and his very self to a career of brutal violence and routine executions. In the midst of the darkness of prison life, the light of God’s Word shone in front of him. Condemned inmates were brought to faith and given eternal life. Families of inmates and victims took immense comfort in God’s justice and redemption. But inside Carter’s heart, a fierce battle raged. Was he carrying out God’s will by wielding the sword of the state? Or was he actually doing more harm than good? In these pages, you’ll walk with Carte into the violence and through death row. You’ll stumble with him through God’s crushing judgment and into His tender love. And you’ll learn that even in the darkest places, God is still there.

Is it too late for me? Or to put it another way, “Where can I find a little heaven on earth?” History’s most successful man, Solomon, wondered just that! And as Dr. David Jeremiah shows us, he was a man who tested life’s haunting questions head-on. And tasted life’s riches full-on. And who found his answers in the last place he thought to look. Listen, then, to his voice. A voice that admits: Maybe happiness is an empty hope. Or maybe we’ve simply been looking in all the wrong places. (8 cassettes) 697 Let the Journey Begin by Max Lucado (Narrator: Kathleen Lane) Deep in every heart you will find it: a longing for meaning, a quest for purpose. If you ask the secularists what is the meaning of life they will say, “We don’t know.” At best they might agree that we are developed animals. At worst, rearranged space dust. What a contrast to God’s vision for life: “we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to devote ourselves to the good deeds for which God has designed us” (Eph. 2:10). God has placed His hand on your shoulder and said, “You’re something special.” Untethered by time, He sees us all. In fact, He saw us before we were born. And He loves what He sees. Flooded by emotion. Overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one and says, “You are my child. I love you dearly.” And He loves us forever. Should you ever turn from Him and walk away, He has already provided a way back. Nothing can separate you from His love. If you anchor these truths firmly in your heart, you will be ready for whatever you may encounter on the road ahead.
