Rejecting Religion—Embracing Grace — Join Greg Albrecht as he examines what Jesus has to say about the kingdom of religion, through an eye-opening study of Jesus’ sermon in Matthew 23. Jesus uses words like woe, hypocrites, blind, greedy, self-indulgent, unclean, desolate, hell and snakes to describe the religious industry, its professionals and the consequences it brings into the lives of those it “serves.” But the kingdom of heaven, in stark contrast to the oppressive kingdom of religion, is a spiritual dimension of freedom and peace. Rejecting Religion—Embracing Grace affirms the ultimate victory of God’s grace—even as the relentless waves of his grace will eventually erode and cover the shifting sands of religion like the waters cover the sea.

The Remnant — In the year 2069 the Apocalypse came and went, but Jesus didn’t show up, as some expected. Instead, a cataclysmic war, natural disasters and pandemics cut earth’s population by 90 percent. Now, in 2131, a totalitarian government rules the world from the magnificent capitol of Carthage, Tunisia. Blamed for igniting the war, all religion and religious books have been banned. Citizens who practice religion are sent to work camps. Grant Cochrin, imprisoned in a bleak petroleum camp in North Dakota, hears rumors of isolated Christian communities in the lawless Wilderness areas of North America. Grant leads his family and friends in a daring escape from their work camp to embark on a long and dangerous quest for a utopian Christian community. The main guide in their search is a single Bible page—a remnant of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount handed down from Grant’s grandparents.
Chasing 120—A Story of Food, Faith, Fraud and the Pursuit of Longevity — While some may have differing opinions regarding whether they would want to live to be 120 years old.

The meteoric success of Belknap’s Wellness 120 empire is fueled by “the pursuit of longevity,” touted by Belknap as a biblically-based promise of 120 healthy years for those who follow his regimen and purchase his nutritional products.

A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel — What is God like? A punishing judge? A doting grandfather? A deadbeat dad? A vengeful warrior? ‘Believers’ and atheists alike typically carry and finally reject the toxic images of God in their own hearts and minds. Even the Christian gospel has repeatedly lapsed into a vision of God where the wrathful King must be appeased by his victim Son. How do such ‘good cop/bad cop’ distortions of the divine arise and come to dominate churches and cultures? What if God has always been and forever will be ‘cruciform’ (cross-shaped) in his character and actions?
