  • 15 New Testament Words of Life

    $18.99

    In 15 New Testament Words of Life, biblical scholar Nijay Gupta explores some of the most important New Testament words:

    • Righteousness
    • Gospel
    • Forgiveness
    • Life
    • Cross
    • Faith
    • Grace
    • Fellowship
    • Hope
    • Salvation
    • Peace
    • Religion
    • Holiness
    • Love
    • Witness

    These are familiar terms in the Christian vocabulary, but many don’t know the original background and theological importance of these words, and how they can be life-giving for Christian faith and life today. To access the deep meaning of these words in the theological vocabulary of the New Testament writers, Gupta discusses each word within a key text and interprets it in three contexts:

    • Canonical—how the New Testament is grounded in the Old
    • Literary—the meaning developed within the key text
    • Historical—the Jewish and Greco-Roman world of the first century

    For those first hearers of the gospel who chose to follow Jesus, these words were the words of life, and they can be once again for Jesus-followers in the modern world. With Gupta’s skilled guidance, readers will find their engagement with the New Testament revitalized as they begin to understand how these inspiring ancient words can still be captivating, thought-provoking, and worldview-shaping words for real life today.

    While the New Testament is full of depth and complexity, its most important ideas have a profound simplicity to them. In this collection of word studies, Nijay Gupta explores foundational themes in New Testament theology, but in a very accessible way. If you’re looking to deepen your understanding of some of the most essential concepts in Christian belief, this book is for you!

  • How to Talk About Jesus Without Being That Guy

    $17.99

    Most Christians know they should be trying to tell their friends and family about Jesus. But in a post-Christendom world, personal evangelism is viewed negatively–it’s offensive, inappropriate, and insensitive. Recent studies confirm that the majority of Christians rarely evangelize, worried they might offend their family or lose their friends. In How to Talk About Jesus (Without Being That Guy), author Sam Chan equips everyday Christians who are reluctant and nervous to tell their friends about Jesus with practical, tested ways of sharing their faith in the least awkward ways possible.

    Drawing from over two decades of experience as an evangelist, teacher, and pastor, Chan explains why personal evangelism feels so awkward today. And utilizing recent insights from communication theory, cross-cultural ministry, and apologetics, he helps you build confidence in sharing your faith, and teaches you how to evangelize your friends and family in socially appropriate ways.

  • Stop Loving the World

    $7.00

    Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. (1 John 2:15)

    Do you live in this world in such a way that people recognize that it is not your treasure?

    The Puritans were greatly concerned with suppressing worldliness in the church. Today, worldliness is an even greater problem, exacerbated by the fact that so few dare to speak out against it. In this book, William Greenhill provides modern readers with a healthy antidote to our love affair with the world. He explains what it means to love the world, exposes the dangers of cherishing it, shares how we ought to relate to it, and gives encouraging directions for removing our hearts from it. This is a book with a timeless message, demonstrating the relevance of the Puritans for today. By God’s grace, it will help persuade you that the world and all its charms are not what you should live for.

  • 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.

    From Philosophy to Technology, Tracing the Origin of Identity Politics

  • 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.
