Our August Author Author show begins with a book on the end. Respected Bible study author Sue Edwards study of Revelation (Kregel, ISBN# 978-0-8254-4313-8) explains that this oft-studied book of the Bible is really about preparing for eternal life, not the end of time. Ken Gire’s Relentless Pursuit (Bethany House, ISBN# 978-0-7642-0883-6) creates a soul-lifting picture of a God who pursues the outcast. New moms will appreciate Jessica Wolstenholm’s book, The Baby Companion (Leafwood, ISBN# 9780891123569), which covers not only the practical side of baby’s first year – but a faith-filled boost as well.

Sarcasm can be deadly in relationships. The volleys and digs and potshots are too easily second nature to not only marriages…but friendships as well. And too many people have been swimming sarcastic waters so long, they don’t even realize there’s another way to live. Listen as Dr. David Hawkins explains why hurting people hurt people and how to eliminate this behavior in your life. And then Lynne and Dr. Hawkins examine the emotional life of the Christian. They explore why we still experience guilt and shame even when we know we’re forgiven and how to handle anger toward God.

Relationships are fragile. And whether fractured by a major incident or a minor irritation, the ensuing emotions can often feel insurmountable, and the relationship can be halted. In order to make things whole again, something more than “sorry” is needed. Jennifer Thomas joins Lynne to explain how to give and receive apologies. It’s more than a matter of will…but a matter of how you say “I’m sorry” that ultimately makes things right with those you love. She explains the wisdom she penned along with co-author Gary Chapman in their book When Sorry Isn’t Enough (Northfield, ISBN# 978-0-8024-0704-7).

Can sex be holy? Does God have an opinion about sex? Have you ever wished you had the answers to these – and other – questions that seem too much to ask? Authors Linda Dillow and Dr. Juli Slattery have teamed up to offer powerful, honest, biblical answers about sex. The truth is, God intended for husbands and wives to experience eye-popping pleasure and soul-to-soul intimacy, but issues of our past, damaging information from the world, and incomplete teaching within the church have hindered the full enjoyment of these holy gifts. Join these women in their candid discussion with Lynne about Passion Pursuit (Moody, ISBN# 978-0-8024-0639-2).

We know that man was created in the image of God…but have you stopped to consider what our humanness means as we walk through this life in relationship with God? He gave us desires for significance, contentment, control and security, and He gave us the resources of time, talent and treasure, but what does that mean for our everyday life? How can we move past our sin and into the redemption and restoration He provided with Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross? Mitch Kruse spends the hour with Lynne unpacking anthropology – the study of man – and taking your questions!

Why would our loving God choose to forever record the stories of men and women whose lives collapsed in sin and shame? Perhaps the Lord recognized that their stories could powerfully inform and shape us. Even failures of biblical proportion can provide wisdom for those of us walking the journey many years later. Gordon Dabbs, author of Epic Fail (Leafwood, ISBN# 978-0891122326), joins Lynne to explain that though we are human and destined to fail, with God's help and an openness to learn, we can resolve to fail forward - and be reminded that "because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail" (Lamentations 3:22).

Todd Hafer’s beautiful gift book, Forever Love (Summerside, ISBN# 978-1-60936-199-0) chronicles 50 secrets from 50 couples married 50 years…and are still in love. Beloved author Liz Curtis Higgs’ book The Girl’s Still Got It (WaterBrook, ISBN# 978-1-57856-448-4) peeks into the biblical account of Ruth and her rags-to-riches redemption story. And we wrap up with The Easy Burden of Pleasing God (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-4303-9), Patty Kirk’s offering of good news for those who pursue perfection in vain and ache with the defeat that follows.
