  • Following Jesus Christ

    $18.71

    A Comprehensive Guide to Discipleship in the New Testament and Today’s World

    Although the concept of discipleship is an integral part of New Testament teaching, it has largely faded from discussion in both the academy and the local church. To revive and reclaim this teaching for believers in the twenty-first century, editors John Goodrich and Mark Strauss have assembled an expert team of scholars to uncover what every New Testament book teaches about discipleship, providing a comprehensive, biblical picture. In addition, other contributors explore discipleship in the context of the local church, spiritual formation, and the life of the mind. Together, these essays point the way forward for becoming more like Jesus Christ, and helping others do the same, in our personal and corporate lives.

  • Joyful Surrender : 7 Disciplines For The Believers Life

    $11.66

    In our age of instant gratification and if-it-feels-good-do-it attitudes, self-discipline is hardly a popular notion. Yet it may be one of the most important lost virtues of our time. In Joyful Surrender, former missionary and beloved author Elisabeth Elliot offers her understanding of discipline and its value for people of all times. She shows readers how to:
    – discipline the mind, body, possessions, time, and feelings
    – overcome anxiety
    – change poor habits and attitudes
    – trust God in times of trial and hardship
    – let Christ have control in all areas of life

    Elliot masterfully and gently takes readers through Scripture, personal stories, and incisive observations of the world around her to help them discover the understanding that our fulfillment as human beings depends on our answer to God’s call to obedience.

  • Dark Clouds Deep Mercy

    $11.63

    Where do you turn when the dark clouds of pain, suffering, and loss roll into your life? In a broken world, difficult trials can lead quickly to discouragement and despair-even for Christians. But the Bible sets forth an oft-neglected practice for dealing with such trials: lament. To lament is to turn to God in honest, desperate prayer, giving voice to the reality of our emotions-as intense and tumultuous as they may be. Ultimately, lament is an expression of faith in the God who hears our cries and responds with mercy and grace. Drawing on examples from the Bible and his own story of loss, pastor Mark Vroegop walks through steps of lament (Turn, Complain, Ask, and Trust) to show what lament is, why it is important, and how to enter into it-helping readers learn to live between the poles of God’s goodness and a hard life.

  • Pride And Humility At War

    $12.99

    Lanier Burns shows that the Bible consistently presents humility as the supreme virtue. In contrast, pride is the underlying depravity behind specific sins. Humility’s surprising essence is God-centeredness-living for the glory of God rather than self. On the basis of the biblical principle, Christ’s example, and the contemporary need, Pride and Humility at War argues for the unfamiliar connection between true significance and a humble dependence on the Lord.

  • Respectable Sins

    $10.99

    Now available in softcover with a new, contemporary watercolor design that blends with Jerry Bridge’s most popular books. This new edition now includes the study guide (formerly available separately), combining that resource into this book.

    What Ever Happened to Sin? Jerry Bridges helps us confront the sins we tolerate.

    The Christian journey is a life of practiced godliness, but too often we overlook or minimize sins that, while corrosive and destructive to ourselves and those around us, are overshadowed by more flashy, headline-grabbing sins. This classic book from Jerry Bridges helps readers understand and commit to a life of holiness by examining patterns of behavior we often accept as normal, rather than as violations of God’s law.

  • Spiritual Leadership : Principles Of Excellence For Every Believer

    $10.59

    What every church will always need

    The need for talented, vigorous leaders in the church cannot be overemphasized. Such times demand active service of men and women who are guided by and devoted to Jesus Christ.

    With more than 1 million copies sold, Spiritual Leadership stands as a proven classic for developing such leadership. J. Oswald Sanders, a Christian leader for nearly seventy years and author of more than forty books, presents the key principles of leadership in both the temporal and spiritual realms. He illustrates his points with examples from Scripture and biographies of eminent men of God, such as Moses, Nehemiah, the apostle Paul, David Livingstone, Charles Spurgeon, and others.

    Featured topics include:
    *The cost of leadership
    *The responsibility of leadership
    *Tests of leadership
    *The qualities and criteria of leadership
    *The art of reproducing leaders
    *The one indispensable requirement of leadership

    Sanders holds that even natural leadership qualities are God-given, and their true effectiveness can only be reached when they are used to the glory of God. Let this classic be your guide for leadership, and watch how God works through you to do great things for His glory.

  • Spiritual Discipleship : Principles Of Following Christ For Every Believer

    $13.03

    Take time and trouble to keep yourself spiritually fit.*

    As J. Oswald points out, true discipleship is more than intellectual assent to a belief in Christ; it involves the whole person and lifestyle.

    Those with only superficial belief will soon fall away from the faith, but Sanders says a true disciple would rather be presented with a difficult challenge than a soft option. Disciples are charged with the task of training themselves to be godly, because it is their responsibility to remain spiritually fit.

    In addition, a For Reflection guide is included, making this book ideal for both individual and group study.

  • How To Overcome Worry

    $8.39

    Scripture’s cure for the worry epidemic

    Do you struggle with worry or anxious thoughts on a regular basis? Does your mind get fixated on the same concern over and over? Do you know you should stop worrying but repeatedly fail to do so?

    How to Overcome Worry presents a biblical and practical strategy for this exact problem. Dr. Winfred Neely, who has experienced his fair share of anxiety-inducing circumstances, walks you through Philippians 4:6-7 to help you:
    *Understand the difference between concern and worry
    *Use prayer as a means of grace to overcome worry
    *Cultivate gratitude and thanksgiving as an antidote to worry
    *Navigate changing seasons and circumstances without falling into worry
    *Employ practical strategies for experiencing the peace of God

    Worry is one of the top issues in our world today, even among Christians, and this concise and biblical approach will offer real solutions. In His Word, God tells us to stop worrying, pray about everything, and expect His peace. This is a true promise of Scripture, and this book will help you to lay hold of it.

  • Trusting God

    $11.99

    Why is it easier to obey God than to trust Him?

    Because obeying God makes sense to us. In most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don’t want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us. But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation. Before long, we begin to doubt God’s concern for us or His control over our lives. We ask, Why is God allowing this? or What have I done wrong?

    During such a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a thorough Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and in Trusting God he shares the fruit of that study. As you explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and even the details of your life, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely?even when life hurts.

    This new edition replaces both Trusting God (paperback ISBN 9781600063053) and the study guide (paperback ISBN 9781600063060) by combining both resources into one volume!

    Be holy, for I am holy, commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do-and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.The included study guide contains 12 lessons.
