In the 27th chapter of Acts, Luke describes how the apostle Paul and his shipmates endure a storm-tossed shipboard voyage to Rome. They commit the ship to the sea and themselves into the hands of God. The ship is broken into pieces—not to destroy them, but to save them, for some reached the safety of shore on planks and debris from the broken ship. They came in on broken pieces.

Award-winning author Joshua A. McClure was compelled by a vision from God to share encouraging words with all who desire release from their prisons of despair to the land of hope and freedom. Here he shares 32 years of transforming messages from the Pleasant Street Baptist Church pulpit after frequent encounters with a loving, caring God. The sermons collected within these pages are simple, clear, and personal. It is Joshua’s hope and prayer that God will use these simple words to resurrect the hearts of those who have been waiting and longing for him.

Throughout the ages, multitudes have found strength, beauty, hope, and encouragement in the 150 songs of praise we know as the Book of Psalms. This book is divided into four parts. Each part contains five uplifting sermon messages and is headed by an excerpt from the Psalms to meditate upon throughout the reading of that part of the book. Seek out a quiet place; take time to absorb the wisdom of the Psalms; reflect on their promise of hope and comfort. Be enthralled by their remedies for life, while giving thanks with your whole heart to God for his unfailing love and faithfulness.

Many are asking, “Is there life after 50?” This book will inspire you to discover just how amazing life in Jesus can be, at any age.
