3. Beyond Pain
Do you want to live a life without pain? Although we don’t like it, pain is a vital part of life. Yet we challenge the reason for its existence when we ask questions like, Why do bad things happen to good people? or How could a loving God allow pain? Beyond Pain explores physical, mental and spiritual pain to reveal deeper, life changing issues. Pain doesn’t make sense if God is all-loving and all-powerful. Or does it?

Beyond Heroes investigates this theme at Comicon International in San Diego, behind the bars of a notorious gaol, and on the cobbled streets of old Jerusalem. Do we need a hero? Or are we looking for something much bigger? Who are the heroes you look up to? Do they really have your best interest at heart?

Their stories take us beyond our local predicament to the epic rescue that planet Earth so desperately needs.
7. Beyond Guilt
We all have to deal with guilt at some point in our lives. Whether we do or not will either free us or take us deeper into entrapment of one king or another. Beyond Guilt talks with Emmanuel Jal, a child soldier in the Sudanese civil war, and reveals how he dealt with his guilt overload. Renowned psychologist, Dr Arch Hart, gives insights into the psychology of guilt, revealing the peace that lies beyond it.
8. Beyond Rules
The laws of a country tell us a lot about its people and their character. Likewise, God’s rules tell us a much about Him and His kingdom. In our story, the villain attacks God by attacking His rules. Beyond Rules visits a country that has tried to resist the influence of law, and also explores how love makes a huge difference in our attitude toward rules.
9. Beyond Burnout
Electrical devices aren’t the only things that burn out. People and relationships do too, and often for the same reason – overload.

Beyond our busy lives there is a safety switch that guards against a blown brain-circuit and delivers real rest and peace.
10. Beyond Counterfeit
Few experiences are as soul-destroying as falling victim to a scam. In the great cosmic conflict, humankind bought into a scam about God’s intentions and character. Beyond Counterfeit is this story, true yet stranger than fiction, with devastating consequences. We only see beyond the counterfeit when we recognize the real thing.
11. Beyond Death
Why are we so interested in what happens after we die? Ghosts, vampires and the undead are the themes of society’s most popular movies, books and tales.

Beyond the conflicting notions about what happens when we die, there is one absolute: your destiny is your choice.
12. Beyond Hell
In this episode, we go to Hell. We’re there to find the story of our ultimate destiny. Is Hell a real Place? If so what does that tell us about a God who claims to be loving and just?

Beyond Hell reveals a place of peace beyond trouble and misery, in an eternity of abundance, free from pain and oppression.

Beyond Imagination (book)
Imagine this — there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches in the world! What we see when we look up — that’s like a handful of sand. In a universe this big, our little planet is just a speck, barely worth noticing.
In this book, we will explore some of the wonders of the universe and of life on our little planet. But most importantly, we will explore the wonder of our own existence. Since the earliest days of human history, people have struggled with the big questions of life. Why are we here? Where are we going? What happens to us when we die?
Some people believe that science offers all the answers we seek; others feel that science leaves them empty. It doesn’t offer answers for some of the deepest longings of the human heart. But that doesn’t mean that those answers can’t be found.
Come along on a journey to discover not only the wonders of life but, even more remarkable, a love that is beyond imagination.

It began quietly in a garden called Gethsemane and culminated violently on a hill called Calvary – a brief moment in time that forever changed the world.
But nothing you’ll see or hear can compare to the gospel truth. And nothing but the Bible itself will ever fill you with hope or inspire you more than the book you now hold in your hands.
Indeed, no picture or film or sound will match the breathtaking detail and power of this beautiful volume from the final chapters of the best selling masterpiece The Desire of Ages, a vibrant and biblically faithful commentary detailing the last hours of Jesus Christ’s life.
This gripping and unique narrative from one of Christianity’s most-published writers goes beyond the physical suffering and explores the deeper spiritual revelation of love’s most poignant act. You’ll understand more about the intricacies of Jesus’ suffering, but you will also learn of a greater suffering that no insult, no lash, and no nail could ever inflict.
If you want to know the true meaning of the passion of Jesus Christ, ask yourself instead, “What is the true meaning of love?” Then open up this book and find the answer.
