Do you struggle to pray?
You’re not alone. Often, the central question that prevents us from praying more often, more passionately, and more expectantly is, “Why should I pray?”
Why pray if God already knows what you’re going to ask?
Why pray if God already knows what he’s going to do?
Why pray if God seems silent?
In The Greater Work: How Prayer Positions You to Receive All that Grace Intends to Give, Dr. Jim Denison answers why you should pray and offers biblical insight on how to pray and what to pray for.
How often do you wonder why you keep wrestling with the same issues over and over again?
In 7 Deadly Sins: How Our Oldest Temptations Can Lead You From Vice to Virtue, Ryan Denison and Dr. Jim Denison investigate the biblical and historical significance of the seven deadly sins: pride, envy, wrath, slothfulness, greed, gluttony, and lust.

Recognize the Enemy’s traps
Replace sinful intent with faithful living
Renew your heart, mind, and soul
The book also contains discussion questions for each chapter that can be used on your own or in a small-group setting.

You have the Holy Spirit—but does the Holy Spirit have you?
The Holy Spirit lives within every Christian, but not every Christian lives life guided by the Holy Spirit. Why is that?
That’s one reason Dr. Denison wrote Empowered: A Guide to Experiencing the Power of the Holy Spirit, a 47-day devotional, to be read each day from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.
But its brief yet insightful chapters and its biblical, practical steps to the abundant life found in Christ are applicable for any time of the year.
Empowered also includes a spiritual gifts assessment to help you see how your passions and opportunities indicate the spiritual gifts God has imparted to you.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus defined being blessed with eight statements we know as the Beatitudes in his Sermon on the Mount.
In Blessed: Eight Ways Christians Change Culture, Dr. Denison discusses each of Jesus’ “Blessed are” statements and how they challenge us to a higher calling.
If we are to be the “salt and light” to the world Jesus calls us to be, we must first understand what it means to be blessed by God.
Does America still trust God and his word today?
Or have we fallen so far away that his judgment is almost certain-and soon?
If we want to know the Lord’s heart for America, the best place to start is by looking at his heart for Israel. His relationship with them centered on three questions:
Do they respect God’s truth?
Do they respect each other?
Do they respect God?
To apply these questions to America, Dr. Jim Denison and his son, Ryan Denison, take an in-depth look at the most challenging issues of our day.
From sexuality to abortion and suicide, from postmodernity and relative truth to our doubts about God-every major issue America faces today is no surprise to God.
