The Radical Revivalists

After almost 15 years, Bethel Church continues to thrive amid a revival culture that has produced not only countless miracles, but also a youth movement now expanding into stadiums

Melissa Roberts can’t remember a time when it wasn’t revival at Bethel Church. Since she was 4 years old, the only kind of church gatherings she’s known have featured an atmosphere of extreme spiritual hunger, passionate worship and supernatural encounters with God. 

The now-16-year-old barely flinches when worshippers collapse around her during a service as the Holy Spirit spontaneously moves without anyone touching anyone. She hardly bats an eye anymore when she hears of people being declared cancer-free the week after she laid hands on them. And recently she didn’t gawk in amazement as a massive tumor disappeared from a baby’s forehead while she prayed for healing. read more

Monster Man

Christian thriller novelist Mike Dellosso  knows all about living through nightmares.  Here’s the gripping story behind his stories.

Mike Dellosso believes in monsters. He’s seen them. They’ve shown up in the eyes of an alcoholic loved one, a daughter battling a rare blood disorder and his own bout with colon cancer. He’s had to fight them for his life, and he hasn’t always been sure who was winning. But now that he’s faced his worst fears and lived to tell about it, he refuses to look away.

For the last three years, those monsters have been showing up in his supernatural thrillers as beasts that roam dark woods (Darlington Woods), towns with dangerous secrets (The Hunted) and otherworldy screams that warn of untimely deaths (Scream). His fourth novel, Darkness Follows, about a heartless killer and the secrets unearthed through an old Civil War journal, released in May. read more

You. The ocean. And a book. Here are a few suggestions on what to take for a hot summer read this year—from some of your favorite Christian authors.

Melody Carlson

 Melody CarlsonBecause of my busy writing schedule I don’t read as much as I’d like, but I do enjoy reading while traveling. While  flying recently I opened up Lisa Wingate’s Talk of the Town (Bethany House). I’d never read a Wingate book but was immediately pulled in by her quirky characters. It was honestly laugh-out-loud funny and exactly what I needed at that moment in my life. It gave me a whole new respect for lighthearted romance because there are times when laughter truly is the best medicine! I emailed Lisa later and thanked her for writing such a refreshingly fun book.

Melody Carlson is the author of more than 100 books, including Shattered, Never Been Kissed and The Four Lindas. read more
