In this enlightening book, bestselling author Dr. Robert Jeffress opens the Scriptures to unpack ten surprising truths about heaven and explain who we will see there and how we can prepare to go there someday. Perfect for believers or skeptics who are curious about heaven.
Dr. Robert Jeffress calls on Christians to recover the exclusive claims of the one they claim as Lord and Savior, not as a way to keep people out of heaven but as the only way to invite them in. He tackles questions like
- Can people be saved who have never heard of Christ?
- What about those who worship God by another name?
- Do children automatically go to Heaven when they die?
True compassion for non-Christians doesn't lie in letting them go their way while we go ours, but in sharing the only true way with them.
The temptation that regularly assaults you, the depression or illness that pulls you down, the discord in your relationships, the private doubts you harbor about God…
These are not just a natural part of life–they’re battles in a behind-the-scenes war against your faith, family, and future. From a balanced perspective, Robert Jeffress lifts the curtain of everyday existence to reveal these invisible but very real battles in the war Satan wages against followers of Christ like you.
Because you don’t have to be spiritual road kill…

With the experience of more than two decades in the ministry, Dr. Robert Jeffress has come to the conclusion that forgiveness is the bottom-line issue of life. Failure to receive God's forgiveness results in eternal hell; failure to grant forgiveness to those who have hurt us results in a living hell.
While most people - especially Christians - esteem the concept of forgiveness in theory, few have mastered what one person has called "the art of forgiveness." As C.S. Lewis once said, "Forgiveness is a beautiful word, until you have something to forgive."
When Forgiveness Doesn't Make Sense is an intensely biblical yet extremely practical approach to this crucial issue.
Dr. Jeffress deals with the major misunderstandings about forgiveness: believing you cannot forgive those who never ask for it, confusing forgiveness with forgetting or with reconciliation, and believing that forgiveness automatically erases the consequences of harmful actions. Dr. Jeffress explains the process of our forgiveness by God, as well as the power of our forgiveness of others.
Readers will also learn questions to ask themselves before they seek forgiveness from another, essentials of an effective apology, reasons others may refuse to forgive them, action steps for dealing with painful memories, a check-list to determine whether they have genuinely forgiven another, and much more.
Forgiveness is difficult and often illogical. But When Forgiveness Doesn't Make Sense will equip and encourage readers to become more forgiving-and to experience God's forgiveness more deeply.
At some time in our lives we will be hurt deeply by another person. It may be a family member who mistreats us, a business associate who cheats us, a child who rebels against us, a friend who betrays us, a mate who deserts us, or a God who disappoints us. While we can't control the hurts that come into our lives, we can choose what to do with those hurts. We can let them make us bitter, or we can release them through forgiveness. While forgiveness doesn't always seem to make sense, as Dr. Robert Jeffress explains in his important new book, it is the only way God has given us to effectively resolve the pain of our past. More importantly, it's the obligation of every Christian.
Sometimes your mistake in a relationship, with finances or work, is minor. Other times it can be life-changing. Either way, failure doesn’t have to be fatal.

In Hell? Yes! Dr. Robert Jeffress issues a bold wakeup call to all believers–from college students to grandparents–to stop apologizing for and start proclaiming the tough but essential truths that Christians have historically embraced. And he provides the finest biblical, scientific, and historical evidence needed to defend these core beliefs in a culture turned hostile to God's truth.
Dr. Jeffress believes the secular spirit of political correctness is holding the church hostage. And the tragic result is that the revolutionary, life-changing, positive message of the Christian faith is being watered down.
If you are weary of a Christianity that waffles and wavers about controversial issues–if you are ready to stand up and compassionately yet forcefully and intelligently say, “This is what I believe and here’s why”–then this book is for you!

How can I know there is a God?
How can I know the Bible is true?
How can I know there is life after death?
How can I know how to forgive someone who has hurt me?
You're not alone in wrestling with doubts and uncertainties: every one of us - no matter our age - has questions about these real-life concerns. What's more, many Christians can't readily explain the reason for their hope, as 1 Peter 3:15 advises.

Combining the best research available with the most persuasive arguments, Jeffress offers you renewed hope, assurance of faith, and powerful tools for understanding - and explaining - life's essential answers, all in a listener-friendly format.
In an age of information overload, simplicity is essential. These steadfast yet simple truths will do more than answer your questions. They'll equip you to defend your faith and share it with conviction.
As the sun sets on a once-great nation, American Christians face a vital question: what now? It's evening in America. The remarkable society whose light once shone as a beacon to the world is dimming. This is the sobering assessment of Robert Jeffress in Twilight's Last Gleaming, yet he brings with that diagnosis a remarkably redemptive and hopefilled prescription for American believers. It's a timely message. Rarely in U.S. history have Christians been more discouraged and fearful about our country's future. Now Dr. Jeffress points a way out of this malaise, calling believers to action-not to restore a fading empire's glory, but to make an eternal impact on millions of eternal souls. With a foreword by Governor Mike Huckabee, here is a bold roadmap to guide your attitudes and actions in these volatile last days.
