Learn how to work your way through life’s unexpected challenges with grace and find a deeper faith while on your journey. In this biblical and conversational book by Dr. Tony Evans and his four adult children—Chrystal Evans Hurst, Priscilla Shirer, Anthony Evans, and Jonathan Evans—you will hear five insightful perspectives on what it means to hold on to faith when life breaks your heart.
We have all been through difficult seasons and times in life when it seems like the hits keep coming and you can barely catch your breath. The Evans family knows what this is like, as they’ve experienced the deep grief of losing eight loved ones in less than two years’ time, including the devastating passing of Lois Evans, the matriarch of the family.
In Divine Disruption, Dr. Tony Evans and his children pull back the curtain on their faith-shaking experiences, in order to provide biblical wisdom and practical encouragement for how to deal with the hard, unexpected things we all inevitably face.
You’ll walk away with insights on:
- Why bad things happen despite a good and powerful God
- Persevering in difficult times and experiencing God’s peace
- What causes distress in your life—and how to move past it
- How to keep your faith from being damaged during tough times
Join the Evans Family in this unique Kingdom Legacy partnership as they candidly share honest questions they’ve asked, raw emotions they’ve felt, and solutions they’ve learned. Your life may have been interrupted, but you can use that to grow closer to God—and find peace.
For too long, men have sat on the sideline of life. But God intends for us to get into the game. We’ve been content with mediocre while God calls us to greatness. The path to a better world and a better future for our families and communities begins at our door. We need to take hold of our biblical anointing and become men sold out for the kingdom of God.
Dr. Tony Evans, founder and president of The Urban Alternative and senior pastor at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Texas, calls men to biblical manhood. He exhorts you to grab hold of your dominion, exercise the authority God has given you, and fulfill your role to provide leadership and mirror God’s character.
With Kingdom Man as your guide, you will learn to:
- Leave the past behind: learn from yesterday but not live in it
- Embrace prayer as your primary weapon of warfare
- Align yourself with God’s prescription for kingdom manhood
- Confidently and compassionately express your authority within your domain

Men, it’s time to step into our destiny. It’s time to roar.
In his exciting new book, bestselling author Dr. Tony Evans shows that it’s through the names of God that the nature of God is revealed to us. Who is God in His fullness? How has He expressed His riches and righteousness? How can you trust His goodness? As you get to know the names of God and understand their meaning, God’s character will become real to you in life-changing ways.
You will explore the depths of God as
- Elohim: The All-Powerful Creator
- Jehovah: The Self-Revealing One
- Adonai: The Owner of All
- Jehovah-Jireh: The Lord Who Provides
- El Shaddai: The Almighty Sufficient One
- El Elion: The Most High Ruler
- Jehovah Nissi: The Lord’s Banner of Victory
- Jehovah Shalom: The Lord Our Peace
- Jehovah Mekadesh: The Lord Who Sanctifies
- Jehovah Rophe: The Lord Who Heals
- Jehovah Tsikenu: The Lord My Righteousness
- Jehovah Robi: The Lord My Shepherd
- Immanuel: God With Us
By studying and understanding the characteristics of God as revealed through His names, you will be better equipped to face hardship and victory, loss and provision, and all of the challenges life throws at you.
Through the names of God, you gain insight into God’s character—and how each name represents a facet of His being that He wants you to know and trust. For instance, when you understand that Jehovah Jireh means “the Lord your provider,” you can be assured of God’s provision for you.
In Praying Through the Names of God, Dr. Tony Evans reveals fascinating insights into some of God’s powerful names and offers you a chance to benefit personally by providing several prayers based on those names. Your prayer life will be revitalized as you connect your needs and requests with the specific characteristic of God’s name relevant to your need.
Cultural instability. Family breakdown. Social media ranting. Unchecked narcissism. The only way to fight against this toxic atmosphere of our world today is through character. By living out kingdom values rather than merely virtue signaling (trying to appear like we care about all the right things), we can rise up and model what the world needs to see.
But kingdom values aren't just something we embrace to improve the world around us. They come with a benefit--a bonus. They come with blessings. By aligning your thoughts, words, and actions with God's values, you will receive the peace, comfort, and purpose you've been looking for all along.
Dr. Evans provides insights based on biblical virtues found in the Beatitudes as well as throughout the rest of Christ's teachings. When you live life God's way, demonstrating His values to those around you, you will usher in authentic change not only in others but in the culture as well. Kingdom values are contagious. Pass them on.

With passion and clarity, Dr. Evans demystifies spiritual warfare so that readers can tackle challenges and obstacles with spiritual power—God’s authority—as they:
- understand how the battle is fought by Satan
- actively use the armor of God
- find strength in prayer and sufficiency in Christ
- win over chemical, sexual, emotional, relational, and other strongholds
