Jud Wilhite serves as Senior Pastor of Central Church. Central is dedicated to introducing people to Jesus and helping them follow Him. Jud is a best-selling author who has written several books including Uncaged, The God of Yes, Pursued, and a study Bible for new believers, The Uncensored Truth Bible for New Beginnings. His teaching segments are heard nationally on KLOVE radio. Jud and his wife, Lori, reside in the Las Vegas area with their two children and a slobbery Bulldog named Roxy.
In Uncaged: Released to Live in the Freedom of God's Promises, Jud Wilhite explores the eight key promises of God that reshaped his life and re-energized his faith. These promises led him out of near-burnout into newfound freedom and joy, and they can do the same for you.
Jesus didn’t just die to save you from your sins—he died to give you a brand new life; a life free from worry, fear, shame, and condemnation, and filled with love, joy, and peace. A life where God’s power and promises live in you.
THE GOD OF YES
The God of Yes will explore this counterintuitive approach and provide clear application on how faith can infuse meaning to the monotony of everyday life. It will flip Ecclesiastes upside down to show that it is actually affirming life in all of its parts with God at the center. It will challenge the reader that his or her life can look different even if nothing changes externally.
THE UNCENSORED TRUTH BIBLE
One of the greatest needs new believers have is a resource for understanding the Christian faith and the Bible in a straightforward and applicable guide. The Uncensored Truth Bible for New Beginnings fills that need and shows an uncompromising commitment to God’s Word and the extent of His grace: the radical, amazing, overwhelming favor and forgiveness of God available to all.
The New Living Translation is Juds preferred Bible translation because he believes it is the easiest for new believers to understand. This fastest growing Bible translation is the work of 90 Bible scholars over a seven-year period and is known for accurately communicating the meaning of the original ancient Hebrew and Greek texts in clear and concise language.
Jud hopes The Uncensored Truth Bible for New Beginnings will help you apply the gift of God’s words to your life along with some thoughts to help you understand it more quickly and deeply. He gives you tools and resources to help navigate the deep waters of this living document. As you dig into God’s words, the encouragement and truth you receive will literally change your life and the world!
Christian faith isn’t blind obedience to a set of rules and regulations; it is entering into a relationship with a God who pursues us— not to punish, but to love. As the leader of Central Church in the self-proclaimed “Sin City, U.S.A.,” Jud notes: no matter how far someone has strayed from God, God always remains in passionate pursuit. Using the biblical prophet Hosea’s marriage, commanded by God, to an unfaithful prostitute as a metaphor for God’s unwavering love, Pursued compellingly illustrates God’s plan for every person-to be freed to become his or her own unique self through intimate togetherness with the living, loving God.
THROW IT DOWN
Throw It Down doesn’t pull punches. It’s straight talk to people who know they have habits and behaviors that are keeping them from being who God made them to be. And no one knows how to boldly confront and bravely encourage like Jud Wilhite. He has spent many joyful years, since beginning his own recovery journey, helping others achieve sobriety through a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. The mean streets of Vegas have been a fertile mission field, and he has witnessed amazing testimonies of God’s grace, triumph and forgiveness. Just as God commanded Moses in Exodus to ‘throw down’ his staff, God asks us to throw down the things that we hold tight, so we are free to accept all the blessings He has in store. Readers will receive the practical help and encouragement they need to throw down their hurts, habits and dependencies and to reclaim health, happiness and God’s blessings.
