    $14.99

    Helps Christians engage lovingly, thoughtfully and biblically with discussions on gender identity. Originally released in 2017, this version has been updated and expanded.

    In the West, more and more Christians are coming across the topic of gender identity in their everyday lives.

  • Christianity And Wokeness

    $14.99

    In a world that is woke, how many Christians are actually awake? This short, theologically sound primer is a resource for pastors, ministry leaders, community leaders, and other thinking Christians that explains carefully and clearly what Critical Race Theory and wokeness truly are, what the Bible teaches about race and ethnicity, why wokeness is distinct from Christianity and should be rejected, and how the church can work for unity based in the gospel of grace.

    *Better understand Critical Race Theory, something very few do;

    *Think through America’s complex past with nuance and sensitivity;
    *Study how God has made humanity one through the imago Dei;

  • Fault Lines : The Social Justice Movement And Evangelicalism’s Looming Cata

    $18.49

    We are standing on shaky ground.

    As a wave of violent riots protesting the death of a black man at the hands of police shook the nation in the summer of 2020, most Americans were shocked. Christians nationwide, eager to fulfill their God-given calling to bring peace and reconciliation, took to pulpits and social media in droves to affirm that black lives matter and proclaim that racial justice is a gospel issue.

    But what if those Christians, those ministers, and those powerful ministries don’t know the whole story behind the new movement that’s been making waves in their congregations? Even worse: what if they’ve been duped into adopting a set of ideas that not only don’t align with the Kingdom of God, but stand diametrically opposed to it?

    In this powerful book, pastor, professor, and leading cultural apologist Voddie Baucham explains the sinister worldview behind the social justice movement and how it has quietly spread like a fault system, not only through our culture, but throughout the evangelical church in America. He also details the devastation it is already wreaking–and what we can do to get back on solid ground before it’s too late.

    Whether you’re a layperson who feels like you’ve just woken up in a strange new world and wonder how to engage both sensitively and effectively in the conversation on race, or a pastor who’s wondering how to deal with increasingly polarized factions within your congregation, this book will provide the clarity and understanding you need to either hold your ground, or reclaim it.

  • Free To Believe

    $10.49

    A leading religious freedom attorney, the veteran of several Supreme Court battles, helps people of faith understand religious liberty in our rapidly changing culture–why it matters, how it is threatened, and how to respond with confidence and grace.

    Many Christians and others are concerned about rising threats to religious freedom. They feel the culture changing around them, and they fear that their beliefs will soon be marginalized as a form of bigotry. Others, younger Christians in particular, are tired of the culture wars, and they wonder whether courtroom battles are truly worthwhile, or even in line with the teachings of Jesus. Luke Goodrich offers a reasoned, balanced, gospel-centered approach to religious freedom. He applies biblical understanding to a number of the most hot-button cultural issues of our day. He also offers practical steps Christians can take to respond to religious freedom conflicts in an informed, responsible, and graceful way.

  • When A Nation Forgets God

    $9.65

    In When A Nation Forgets God, Erwin Lutzer studies seven similarities between Nazi Germany and America today-some of them chilling-and cautions us to respond accordingly. Engaging, well-researched, and easy to understand, Lutzer’s writing is that of a realist, one alarmed but unafraid. Amidst describing the messes of our nation’s government, economy, legal pitfalls, propaganda, and more, Lutzer points to the God who always has a plan.

    At the beginning of the twentieth Century, Nazi Germany didn’t look like a country on the brink of world-shaking terrors. It looked like America today. When a Nation Forgets God uses history to warn us of a future that none of us wants to see. It urges us to be ordinary heroes who speak up and take action.

  • We Cannot Be Silent

    $17.19

    Twenty years ago, not one nation on earth had legal same-sex marriage. Now, access to same-sex marriage is increasingly seen as a basic human right. In a matter of less than a generation, western cultures have experienced a moral revolution.

    Al Mohler examines how this transformation occurred, revealing the underlying cultural shifts behind this revolution: the acceptance of divorce culture, liberation of sex from reproduction, the prevalence of heterosexual cohabitation, the normalization of homosexuality, and the rise of the transgender movement. He then offers a deep look at how the Bible and Christian moral tradition provide a comprehensive understanding upon which Christians can build their personal lives, their marriages, church ministry, and cultural engagement.

    Mohler helps Christians in their understanding of the underlying issues of this significant cultural shift and how to face the challenge of believing faithfully, living faithfully, and engaging the culture faithfully in light of this massive change.

  • Is God On Americas Side

    $5.30

    With typical wisdom and lucidity, Lutzer addresses a fundamental question – a question begging for an answer after a frenetic election – Is God really on America’s side? To answer, the reader is carefully led through seven vital principles of a biblical understanding of judgment.
    – God can both bless and curse a nation.
    – God judges nations based on the amount of light and opportunity they are given.
    – God sometimes uses exceedingly evil nations to judge those that are less evil.
    – When God judges a nation, the righteous suffer with the wicked.
    – God’s judgments take various forms.
    – In judgment, God’s target is often His people, not just the general population.
    – God sometimes reverses intended judgments.

    Throughout, Lutzer’s insights into how Christians should view government equips them ‘to think with the Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other.
