A Man Like No Other: The Illustrated Life of Jesus
Authors: Wayne Jacobsen and Brad Cummings; Illustrator: Murry Whiteman
Jesus continues to be the most engaging person who ever lived, not only a man of compelling words, and incredible miracles, but also a man who treated others around him as they had never been treated before.
Now, through the brush of award-winning artist, Murry Whiteman, and the pen of authors and collaborators on The Shack, Wayne Jacobsen and Brad Cummings, experience the richness of the One who set the world on fire. In provocative paintings and insightful prose, these three unveil the life and teachings of Jesus to show how truly unique a person he was.
Discover afresh Jesus growing up and beginning to grasp his identity as God's son, living loved through the temptations and turmoil he faced, and finally offering his own life to rescue people he loved from the darkness and fears that held them captive.
Let him become more to you than just the character in a book, a name used by those who fight over doctrine, or an empty religious icon. In him the God of the universe came and took up residence in his own creation.
Have you ever listened to a preacher talk about God and thought, “That doesn’t sound like God.” Millions have become repulsed by the God some churches present. From birth, many Christians have been bombarded with so many contradictory teachings and doctrines that their understanding of God resembles a tightly tangled ball of Christmas tree lights. The Misunderstood God throws out that twisted mess and replaces it with the soft, warm light of truth.
With so many confusing teachings about God and countless contradictions, misunderstandings, outright scams, and simplistic, fear-based teachings, how can we really know who God is for ourselves? The Misunderstood God analyzes some of the most common claims about God’s heart and personality, and measures them against what God has called Himself: perfect love. Through a journey into the sixteen aspects of love from one of the most well-known scriptures around the world—the “love chapter”—The Misunderstood God offers step-by-step comparisons and simple, biblical teaching to reveal the profoundly simple truth that God is, indeed, love. He has made it so easy to know His heart that even a child could understand Him. No educated theologians or credentialed pastors have a corner on the truth about God. He is not merely locked in a monastery high in the mountains. He’s not just sitting in church hoping you’ll show up. He’s not simply out traveling with the latest super-spiritual faith healer. Finding God is easier than any of us imagined. People who have spent years searching for the truth about him can finally discover that they have known Him all along.
The Misunderstood God simplifies a generation’s tangled perceptions of God. Finding God is as easy as learning what love means. His character and personality can be known and understood. This book gives the reader permission and confidence to trust what they already know about God by deepening our understanding of what love truly is.

Windblown Media is pleased to announce the release of our newest title.
From authors John Lynch, Bill Thrall and Bruce McNichol, Bo's Cafe is the story of Steven Kerner, a high-power tech exectutive, living the American dream in Southern California. However, life isn't as perfect as it seems. After another fight with his wife, he finds himself at a seedy bar far from home where an eccentric mystery man named Andy Monroe reveals that he knows more about Steven than he might suspect.
Reluctantly, Steven begins driving around with Andy in his 1970 Chevy Electra convertible, unravelling his tightly-wound world, and leading to a series of frustrating and painful encounters intended to help Steven let go of his tight grip on fear, shame, relationships, and control. Through the genuine friendship that develops, and the grace and love of a God who’s been patiently directing him to it, Steven finally accepts the very thing he’s needed all along.
A fictionalized version of a true story of healing, the profound but simple steps move from awakening to one’s emotions, to exchanging safety for messy vulnerability, and finally to transforming from self-focus to the destiny God intended. An unusually powerful story of challenging one’s fears and encouraging deep trust, Bo’s Café is a model journey for all who struggle with unresolved anger, trust issues, and a performance-based life. There is a fuller, more authentic way of living, and this semi-fictional journey of healing shows the way to find it through God’s unbridled grace.
