  • Jesus the Great Philosopher

    $13.99

    Many of us tend to live as though Jesus represents the “spiritual part” of our lives. We don’t clearly see how he relates to the rest of our experiences, desires, and habits. How can Jesus, the Bible, and Christianity become more than a compartmentalized part of our lives?

    Highly regarded New Testament scholar and popular teacher Jonathan Pennington argues that we need to recover the lost biblical image of Jesus as the one true philosopher who teaches us how to experience the fullness of our humanity in the kingdom of God. Jesus teaches us what is good, right, and beautiful and offers answers to life’s big questions: what it means to be human, how to be happy, how to order our emotions, and how we should conduct our relationships.

    This book brings Jesus and Christianity into dialogue with the ancient philosophers who asked the same big questions about finding meaningful happiness. It helps us rediscover biblical Christianity as a whole-life philosophy, one that addresses our greatest human questions and helps us live meaningful and flourishing lives.

    -Betsy Childs Howard, The Gospel Coalition

    Join Tilly Dillehay as she uncovers seven common sources of envy and challenges you to change the way you think about God’s glory. In doing so, you will learn to rejoice with others, you will experience greater contentment, and you will discover how to truly love your neighbor as yourself.

  • More Than A Battle

    $15.99

    It has never been more difficult to flee sexual immorality and pursue holiness.

    We live in an age of unprecedented access to sexual temptation. Previous generations faced adultery, prostitution, and brothels. But not every person had a brothel in their pocket. Our society’s obsession with sex, coupled with the technologies that make pornography so accessible, make it more challenging than it’s ever been.

    The result is that our families, our churches, and our society are being devastated by a pornography epidemic.

    In More than a Battle, pastor and author Joe Rigney offers hope for Christian men who are seeking to live with integrity and faithfulness in the face of the sexual temptation around them. Drawing on the Scriptures, his personal experience, and his pastoral counseling, Rigney frames the struggle with lust beneath the banner of Galatians 5:16: “Walk by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.”

    The struggle with lust is a fierce battle, an enslaving addiction, and a deep brokenness. Rigney shows us that through the gospel it is the Holy Spirit that gives us victory, sets us free, and heals our wounds.

  • God & The Transgender Debate

    $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. Legislative changes are impacting more and more areas of life, including education, employment and state funding, with consequences for religious liberty, free speech and freedom of conscience that affect everyone. So it’s a crucial moment to consider how to engage lovingly, thoughtfully and biblically with one of the most explosive cultural discussions of our day.

    This warm, faithful and compassionate book that helps Christians understand what the Bible says about gender identity has been updated and expanded throughout, and now includes a section on pronoun usage and a new chapter challenging some of the claims of the transgender activist movement.

    Andrew T. Walker also answers questions such as: What is transgender and gender fluidity? How should churches respond? What does God’s word actually say about these issues?

  • Listen Up! A Practical Guide to Listening to Sermons

    $2.99

    Seven ingredients for healthy sermon listening.

    Why on earth does anyone need a guide on how to listen to sermons? Don’t we simply need to ‘be there’ and stay awake? Yet Jesus said: ‘Consider carefully how you listen.’ The fact is, much more is involved in truly listening to Bible teaching than just sitting and staring at the preacher.

    Christopher Ash outlines seven ingredients for healthy listening. He then deals with how to respond to bad sermons — ones that are dull, or inadequate, or heretical. And finally, he challenges us with ideas for helping and encouraging our Bible teachers to give sermons that will really help us to grow as Christians.

    Where does the authority of a Bible teacher come from?
    Why is Bible teaching offensive?
    Why is it important to hear Bible teaching in church?
    How can we actually enjoy Bible teaching more?

    These (and more) are the questions answered by this practical guide, which includes effective, hands-on suggestions for implementing each idea. All with the aim of helping us learn how to listen properly, so that through His word, God will make us more and more Christ like.

    Beyond Bible Basics was created to help parents, teachers, and youth leaders help prepare teens for the Christian life. This curriculum teaches teens the fundamentals of the Christian life as taught in Scripture.

    There are thirty-three chapters spanning ten sections in Beyond Bible Basics. Your teen completes one chapter per week using one of the teaching methods described below:

    1. You can work through the chapter with your teen during the week for approximately 15 minutes a day.
    2. As a self-directed study, your teen works through the chapter and you review the chapter at the end of the week with your teen.
    3. If you have a mentor/student program in your youth group, a youth group leader can shepherd your teen.

    Each section deals with a different aspect of the Christian life. There is verse memorization that your teen would recite each time they do a chapter in that section. There are questions to answer and verses to look up and comment on regarding the topic they are studying.

    Each section exhorts your teen to apply what they are learning.  As your teen progresses through Beyond Bible Basics, they are taught how to own their faith and we trust that in one school year, they will have the necessary tools to be prepared for the Christian life.

  • Business For The Glory Of God

    $11.15

    Can business activity in itself be morally good and pleasing to God? Sometimes business can seem so shady–manipulating the bottom line, deceiving the consumer, or gaining promotions because of whom you know.

    But Wayne Grudem introduces a novel concept: business itself glorifies God when it is conducted in a way that imitates God’s character and creation. He shows that all aspects of business, including ownership, profit, money, competition, and borrowing and lending, glorify God because they are reflective of God’s nature. Though Grudem isn’t naive about the easy ways these activities can be perverted and used as a means to sin, he knows that Christians can be about the business of business.

    This biblically based book is a thoughtful guide to imitating God during interactions with customers, coworkers, employees, and other businesses. See how your business–and your life in business–can be dedicated to God’s glory.
