Magdalena - Released From Shame (DVD)
One woman caught in the scandalous act of adultery; another, rejected and ignored because of her promiscuous lifestyle; another, shunned for 12 years because of her shameful condition, and a widow, cast out from society, mourning the loss of her only son. An ugly thread of shame, sorrow and hopelessness painfully weaves its way through the lives of each of these women.
After following Jesus for three years, Mary Magdalene observed all these things and more. She also witnessed changed lives, miracles, and the results of restored hope. Watching in amazement, Mary learned from Jesus a new way to look at people. He also radically transformed her life by healing her from demon possession -releasing her from shame.
Mary Magdalene acts as both narrator and participant in Magdalena: Restored From Shame as she traces through the story of loves that have come into contact with this man, Jesus, and have been powerfully released from shame. $5:00
Materials by Dorie Van Stone
Secrets of the Heart
Dorie's books follow the pattern of recovery from abuse. Dorie the Girl Nobody Loved published in 1979 was the first tentative telling of some of the story, but hiding the most shameful parts. In the second book, No Place To Cry written many years later, Dorie told at last about the sexual abuse that occurred in the orphanage and continued in the foster homes.
Since the telling of the abuse, Dorie opened herself up to further abuse from people who say things like, "What was it like to be a sexpot" or "Surely you could have gotten away if you had tried. She has learned to lift her eyes to Jesus and focus on Him in order to continue to minister to those who want help.
In Secrets of the Heart Dorie takes another risk as she exposes the effects of shame and the difficulty of breaking behaviour patters from the past.
This book has been written to encourage victims of abuse to find a place where they can tell the secrets that bind them to the past, to let them know that they are not alone in the internal struggle with shame and false guilt and to encourage the Church to be an advocate for victims. It is a record of conversations with people all around the world who have found Dorie a safe place to tell their story. $12.00
No Place To Cry
Dorie considered herself ugly, unloved and dirty as the result of childhood sexual abuse. Then she gave her life to God - and He made something beautiful of it. $12.00
Dorie - The Girl No body Loved
Dorie takes us beyond generalisations and statistics to convey the tragic events of her childhood. Having been shunned by her parents "like an unwanted dog" and mercilessly abused in several foster homes, Dorie clung to the unconditional love of God that so many take for granted.

But I know far too many people who have been burned by sex - not only as children but as teens and adults - simply because someone didn't follow God's directions. And that breaks my heart...and His.

Faith, Form and Time - Dr Kurt Wise
What the Bible teaches, and science confirms about creation and the age of the universe. Darwinian theories of the universe, although mostly rejected by evangelical Christians, have still found their way into creation theology. A concept such as evolutionist creation has watered down much of the Bible's teaching in order to reconcile with popular tenants of science.
The whole controversy swirls around the age of the universe. Kurt P. Wise shows from solid Biblical teachings and scientific confirmation why young universe creation is correct. Beginning with God and His Word as the standard, Wise demonstrates how the biblical witness teaches that the age of the universe is not as old as Darwinian theory contends $15.95
