  • When God Weeps


    If God is loving, why is there suffering? What’s the difference between permitting something and ordaining it? When bad things happen, who’s behind them, God or the devil? When suffering touches our lives, questions like these suddenly demand an answer. From our perspective, suffering doesn’t make sense, especially when we believe in a loving and just God. After more than thirty years in a wheelchair, Joni Eareckson Tada’s intimate experience with suffering gives her a special understanding of God’s intentions for us in our pain. In When God Weeps, she and lifelong friend Steven Estes probe beyond glib answers that fail us in our time of deepest need. Instead, with firmness, and compassion, they reveal a God big enough to understand our suffering, wise enough to allow it and powerful enough to use it for a greater good than we can ever imagine.

    Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens. You will say to me then, Why still find fault? For who has resisted His will? But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Romans 9:18-20a

    Hard words, indeed. But they remain, for all our explanations, God’s words.

    Easy Chairs, Hard Words offers an honest look at many such difficult passages in Scripture. Presented as a series of fictional conversations between a curious young Christian and a seasoned pastor, these dialogues speak with clarity to those new to the Reformed faith. They begin with the question, Can salvation be lost? and from there wrestle with other hard-to-swallow doctrines, including the freedom of the will, election, and original sin.

    Hard words, and yet the understanding given these passages is thoughtful and gentle. For our God ,the God of hard words, is a merciful and loving Father, slow to wrath and quick to pardon, a triune God who graciously rescues men from death and brings them into everlasting life.

  • Finding Common Ground



    When it comes to reaching the new generation for Christ, are believers truly sowing for the future–or just reaping the benefits of past evangelistic efforts? Tim Downs suggests practical ways for today’s Christians to cultivate fruitful relationships in our communities, and bring our troubled culture the healing it needs so much.

    In a world that’s growing more hostile to the gospel, what can Christians do? How can we communicate with our unbelieving friends and coworkers in a way that won’t seem pushy, intolerant, or judgmental? In a world that’s heard it all before and no longer seems to care, where do we begin?

    By Sowing.

    In Finding Common Ground, Tim Downs reminds us of the forgotten biblical art of sowing and shows us practical and effective ways to:
    * Bring up spiritual subjects with busy and distracted people
    * Use secular movies and books to talk about biblical ideas
    * Overcome prejudice and stereotypes in our listeners
    * Keep open doors of communication with even hostile opponents
    * Move everyone we meet a step closer to the gospel
