Not Hannah but Anna: Nurturing a Fruitful Life in a Barren World

Loosely based on the message in Barren among the Fruitful, Amanda encourages audiences to recognize the difference between wishing God would fulfill their desires and desiring only His will for their lives. Wholeness comes not from having all we want, but from wanting all of Him. Combining personal stories and biblical truths, this study and address can be convicting, cathartic, and inspirational.

Camels Can Thread Needles: How First-Century Contexts Inform Scripture

Complimenting the message in her second book (title tbd), Amanda explains the importance of literary, historical, and textual criticism when studying Scripture. Audiences will learn, among other things, that
  • Isaac was a willing participant in his own near-sacrifice,
  • the Israelites thought they were honoring God with their golden calf,
  • the "Proverbs 31 woman" is not intended to be a role model, and
  • prophecy can be fulfilled again and again.

Down and Dirty Scripture: How Archaeology Can Explain the Bible

Expounding on her experiences as an archaeologist in Ashkelon, Amanda entertains audiences with personal and biblical anecdotes that illuminate confusing and often-misunderstood biblical texts. Highlights include
  • Solomon's temple architecture,
  • Israelite and Jewish divination tools,
  • ancient burial practices, and
  • the "inn" where Jesus was born.
