Subversive Sabbath
We live in a 24/7 culture of endless productivity, workaholism, distraction, burnout, and anxiety--a way of life to which we've sadly grown accustomed. This tired system of "life" ultimately destroys our souls, our bodies, our relationships, our society, and the rest of God's creation. The whole world grows exhausted because humanity has forgotten to enter into God's rest.

This book pioneers a creative path to an alternative way of existing. Combining creative storytelling, pastoral sensitivity, practical insight, and relevant academic research, Subversive Sabbath offers a unique invitation to personal Sabbath-keeping that leads to fuller and more joyful lives. A. J. Swoboda demonstrates that Sabbath is both a spiritual discipline and a form of social justice, connects Sabbath-keeping to local communities, and explains how God may actually do more when we do less. He shows that the biblical practice of Sabbath-keeping is God's plan for the restoration and healing of all creation.

Exposing the Spiritual Roots of Disease
Over thirty years ago, Dr. Henry Wright experienced major success in praying for people to be healed from disease. But suddenly the healing stopped. He began asking God why people weren’t being healed. Through a pursuit of God’s Word and truth, he began a lifelong journey of learning the spiritual roots of disease and blockages to healing. In this journey, he discovered that about 80 percent of all disease has a spiritual root issue and is a direct result of a breakdown in our relationship with God, ourselves, or others.

Dr. Wright began teaching the biblical principles and truths he discovered and found great success in people’s healing and recovery. He has helped tens of thousands to experience wholeness in their lives.

Every human being is a spirit with a soul living in a body. Therefore, this is not just about our physical health, although it greatly impacts our bodily well-being. It is about our identity in God and the freedom He desires to give us, extending from our spirits to our souls and bodies.

In this book, Dr. Wright presents a thoroughly biblical and compelling case for healing. If you think you’ve read all you need to know about healing, it’s time to take another look! The author clearly shows that disease is not a random occurrence and that science and medicine have their limitations in dealing with the spiritual roots of illnesses that inflict millions. We need healing for spirit, soul, and body. If you have recently been diagnosed with an illness or have been struggling with your health for years, there is hope and healing ahead.

“I am so thankful about these physical healings. However, I’m even more thankful for the inner peace and faith that I have been experiencing. [They are] beyond description.” —Sue from Maryland (healed of back pain, rheumatism, and high cholesterol)

“His perfect will is that we don’t get sick. But once we’re sick, the provision has been made for healing. We just need to line up with the Word of God and be transparent, and everything takes care of the rest.” —Claudio (he and his wife healed of infertility; their newborn son healed of serious health issues)

Suicide Prevention
Suicide Prevention—Hope When Life Seems Hopeless

Nothing is as heartbreaking as a loved one who has lost hope and is contemplating suicide. A person who seems cheerful one day can slip into despair and hopelessness the next. God's heart is tender and full of compassion toward those experiencing deep pain. The mini-book Suicide Prevention covers the steps to identifying and preventing suicide using a Christian approach. Suicide prevention requires compassion toward the sufferer, along with practical steps and biblical assurance of God's love.

The Bible says, The Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion" (Isaiah 30:18). He feels the emotional, spiritual, and physical agony that engulfs the lives of those teetering on the brink of absolute hopelessness and suicide. And from God's tender heart springs forth words of wisdom, life-transforming truths that truly affirm your value to him.

Fact: Suicide rates are below average in the winter and above average in the spring, peaking in April. For youth, suicide rates are higher in the summer. For middle-aged adults, age 36 and up, suicide rates rise again in the fall. In general, suicide risks decrease as social interactions increase.
