Your Own Jesus by Tim Luke Your Own Jesus, Paperback (October 2014)

Too many people inherit somebody else's Jesus, mimicking what they see in their family, friends, orpastor rather than finding their own relationship with Jesus. Storyteller and teacher Mark Hall shows how we can find a relationship with God that is so personal, so intimate and vibrant, that it changes everything.

Well by Tim Luke Well, Paperback (October 2014)

Mark Hall uses stories from his own life and the lives of others to help us understand why even success-filled lives often seem empty and unsatisfying. What many consider wells that sustain them---like success, talent, control, and favor---are really just holes that keep them from relying upon Jesus and the abundant life he offers.

Thrive by Tim Luke Thrive, Paperback (August 2014)

In this student edition of Thrive, Mark Hall explores the two sides of our faith life---the roots that help us grow deep and the trunk and branches that are the evidence of what God does inside. With insight and humor, Mark gives teens steps and inspiration for growth in every area.
