Lifelines for Tough Times
When tough times hit, we often find ourselves vulnerable–to doubt, fear, worry, even depression. We ask, “Does God care? Has He forgotten me?”
So why does God allow suffering? Author Mike Fabarez–who is well acquainted with deep pain himself as the father of a special-needs child and as a pastor who has counseled many through life’s hurts–looks to the truths of Scripture for answers. Along the way, he shares…
- how complete trust in God alone can restore your confidence and hope
- the power of focusing on God’s eternal goals for you in life’s temporary setbacks
- God’s promises to love and protect you no matter what happens
This book will not only help you understand why God allows suffering–it will provide you with the resources to stand strong, rest in God’s care, and endure!
Preaching that Changes Lives
Certainly there are many books about preaching on the market today, but no author directs his attention to the clear message of changing lives more than Michael Fabarez.
Everything a pastor does must be done with the perspective of changing lives. When a pastor studies, it should be with the anticipation of changing lives. When he is looking for the right illustration, it must be through the lens of changing lives. When he sets forth the spiritual direction for the church, he must have the scope of changing lives in his focus.
All other books dissect the essentials of pastoral ministry, but “Preaching That Changes Lives” takes it one step further!
Exploring the Gospel
Whether you’ve grown up in church and heard countless sermons, or would have to admit you really don’t know much about Christianity, there should come a point in every person’s life when it’s time to sit down and investigate what the Bible really says about being right with God. Exploring the Gospel is your step-by-step guide to carefully examining the instructions in God’s word regarding life, death, sin, and forgiveness. In this short and easy-to-understand workbook you will be challenged to rethink what you’ve heard about these ancient and eternally important truths.
Getting It Right
Nothing is of more fundamental importance for every person on the planet than our need to get right with God. And while our Creator has revealed and reiterated his reconciling message on page after page of the Bible, many have opted for a popularized, truncated, sound-byte version of the gospel. In “Getting it Right” Mike Fabarez goes back to the Bible and thoughtfully walks us step-by-step through each major component of the gospel message, from God’s diagnoses of the universal human problem, to the great lengths God has gone to solve it. Though many today are increasingly infatuated with what Christianity might mean for this life, Mike Fabarez wants us to be crystal clear about what God has said about getting it right with him now so that we will be ready for the next life.

Why the Bible?
The Bible claims to be a book that records the words and thoughts of God himself. That is a big claim. If that claim is true, it certainly explains why so many enthusiastically read its stories, religiously memorize its verses, and passionately proclaim its message. But if that assertion is not true, then scores of people have been profoundly misled, and perhaps should begin looking for divine wisdom elsewhere.
In Why the Bible? Mike Fabarez explores the claim that the Bible is God’s communication to mankind, and seeks to concisely answer the question of why millions of people through the centuries have put so much stock in this ancient book. Dr. Fabarez then goes on to provide practical direction for those who say they embrace the Bible’s divine origins.
