  • The Hiding Place

    $7.99

    “I pray that God forgive them…”

    Corrie Ten Boom stood naked with her older sister Betsie, watching a concentration camp matron beating a prisoner. “Oh, the poor woman,” Corrie cried. “Yes. May God forgive her,” Betsie replied. And, once again, Corrie realized that it was for the souls of the brutal Nazi guards that her sister prayed.

    Both woman had been sent to the camp for helping the Jews. Christ’s Spirit and words were their guide; it was His persecuted people they tried to save—at the risk of their own lives; it was His strength that sustained them through times of profound horror.

    Here is a book aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it. A story of Christ’s message and the courage woman who listened and lived to pass it along—with joy and triumph!

  • Joni and Ken

    $10.98

    This is the true love story of Joni and her husband of 30 years, Ken Tada. A love story showing what it truly means for a man and a woman to live in love … in sickness and in health.

    Even the honeymoon wasn’t easy. Did Ken realize what he was getting into when he proposed to Joni, a quadriplegic woman? As their marriage years moved on, Ken became increasingly overwhelmed by the never-ceasing demands of caring for Joni, who begins to experience chronic, extreme, nightmarish pain. Ken sinks into depression, and the couple finds themselves on parallel tracks in life, married and living under the same roof but drifting apart emotionally.

    But as they fight for their marriage and find their way through the mazes of depression and pain, they wrap their two lives around their rock—Jesus.

    During Ken’s denial of Joni’s diagnosis, and Joni’s thoughts of how wonderful a quick exit to heaven would be, they experience a personal visitation with the savior you will never forget.

Meet the people who have shaped him: his parents, professors, family, and even the great evangelist Billy Graham.

    Part story and part reflection, full of heart with a dose of wit, He Will Be the Preacher is a personal and engaging witness to the providence of God.

  • Bonhoeffer : Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy (Revised)

    $18.99

    The runaway New York Times bestseller, revised and with a new introduction from the author.

    Who better to face the greatest evil of the 20th-century than a humble man of faith?

    As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a pastor and author.

    In his blockbuster New York Times bestselling biography, Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life-the theologian and the spy-and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffer’s heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler’s Germany, and sheds new light on Bonhoeffer’s involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in Operation 7, the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland.

    In a deeply moving narrative, Metaxas uses previously unavailable documents including personal letters, detailed journal entries, and firsthand personal accounts to reveal dimensions of Bonhoeffer’s life and theology never before seen.

  • Becoming Elisabeth Elliot

    $17.99

    Elisabeth Elliot was a young missionary in Ecuador when members of a violent Amazonian tribe savagely speared her husband Jim and his four colleagues. Incredibly, prayerfully, Elisabeth took her toddler daughter, snakebite kit, Bible, and journal . . . and lived in the jungle with the Stone-Age people who killed her husband. Compelled by her friendship and forgiveness, many came to faith in Jesus.

    This courageous, no-nonsense Christian went on to write dozens of books, host a long-running radio show, and speak at conferences all over the world. She was a pillar of coherent, committed faith; a beloved and sometimes controversial icon. In this authorized biography, Becoming Elisabeth Elliot, bestselling author Ellen Vaughn uses Elisabeth’s private, unpublished journals, and candid interviews with her family and friends, to paint the adventures and misadventures God used to shape one of the most influential women in modern church history. It’s the story of a hilarious, sensual, brilliant, witty, self-deprecating, sensitive, radical, and surprisingly relatable person utterly submitted to doing God’s will, no matter how high the cost. For Elisabeth, the central question was not, How does this make me feel? but, simply, is this true? If so, then the next question was, what do I need to do about it to obey God?

    My life is on Thy Altar, Lord-for Thee to consume. Set the fire, Father! Bind me with cords of love to the Altar. Hold me there. Let me remember the Cross. -Elisabeth Elliot, age 21

  • Martyrs Grace : 21 Moody Bible Institute Alumni Who Gave Their Lives For Ch

    $13.99

    Have you grace to be a martyr? D.L. Moody was once asked.

    No, he replied, I have not. But if God wanted me to be one, he would give me a martyr’s grace.

    They came from around the world. Administrators, teachers, doctors and nurses, church planters and pilots. Regular people in the prime of life.

    United by their love for Christ and their studies at the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, these twenty-one men and women set out with the gospel. From the jungles of South America to the parched African plain, and from the dark cloud of communist China to the dangers of the Middle East, they displayed God through service and love.

    In A Martyr’s Grace, Marvin Newell tells the individual stories of these faithful men and women who made a difference in the places they served. He also describes-in many cases for the very first time-how Jesus called them home. Their legacies live on in the rainforests, villages, churches, and cities where they died.

    What is it that compels ordinary people to sacrifice their lives in this way? Only Christ. They didn’t go expecting to die. But they went-having already given their lives.

  • Hitlers Cross : How The Cross Was Used To Promote The Nazi Agenda

    $11.99

    When Hitler was ruling Europe, where was the church of Christ?

    Hitler’s reign of terror is one of history’s most stunning chapters. His hypnotic power over an entire nation is legendary, even puzzling. But more puzzling still is how he seduced the church of Christ.

    How could Christians have hang swastikas next to crosses in their churches? How could they deny Jesus and obey the Fuhrer? How could they turn their backs on their Jewish neighbors?

    In Hitler’s Cross, Erwin W. Lutzer gives us answers, outlining a number of lessons from this dark chapter in world history, including:
    *The dangers of confusing church and state
    *The role of God in human tragedy
    *The parameters of Satan’s freedom

    Hitler’s Cross is the story of a nation whose church forgot its call and discovered its failure way too late. It is a cautionary tale for every church and Christian to remember who the true King is.

  • Letters And Papers From Prison

    $10.02

    Despite Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s earlier theological achievements and writings, it was his correspondence and notes from prison that electrified the postwar world six years after his death in 1945. The materials gathered and selected by his friend Eberhard Bethge in Letters and Papers from Prison not only brought Bonhoeffer to a wide and appreciative readership, especially in North America, they also introduced to a broad readership his novel and exciting ideas of religionless Christianity, his open and honest theological appraisal of Christian doctrines, and his sturdy, if sorely tried, faith in face of uncertainty and doubt.

    This splendid volume, in some ways the capstone of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, presents the full array of Bonhoeffer’s 1943-1945 prison letters and theological writings. Using the acclaimed DBWE translation, adapted to a more accessible format, this new edition features supplemental material from Victoria J. Barnett and an insightful introduction by John W. de Gruchy to clarify the theological meaning and social importance of Bonhoeffer’s prison writings.
