  • Temptation : Applying Radical Amputation To Lifes Sinful Patterns

    $3.99

    Christians are commanded to grow. Once we are saved, spiritual fruit should be a natural byproduct. If the fruit isn’t there, the growth we are supposed to display is not happening. Yet many Christians find it difficult to bear fruit because their branches are weak-the old patterns of sin and bad habits creep back in and choke off the growth that should be taking place.

    So what do you do when your spiritual fruit isn’t what it should be?

    You do what you would with the fruit of any type of tree: free it from what inhibits its growth by finding weak branches and cutting them off.

    Here Jay Adams unpacks the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 5 and shows us how to use the principle of radical amputation to develop spiritual fruit, putting on holy patterns of living by putting off our sinful ones.

    The Resources for Biblical Living booklet series addresses a wide range of practical life issues in a straightforward, down-to-earth, and most of all, biblical manner.

  • Handbook Of Church Discipline

    $11.49

    11 Chapters

    Additional Info
    This is a handbook for pastors, elders, and all Christians who want to see how Scripture presents the process of discipline that should operate in the Christian community. It was written in response to an urgent need. In order to help church leaders deal with the sorts of problems that require the church to respond with discipline, the author has developed the book around the five steps of corrective discipline found especially in Matthew 18:15 — 17. Because there is not merely one kind or one stage of discipline, church leaders must learn how to discern. And once the right discernment has been made, then the right action can follow. This is a simple and very readable little handbook. The influence it can and should have on the church is, however, quite profound

    The last 15 years has seen the rise of a powerful and influential movement within the church. Easily identified by labels such as self-image, self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love, this movement has one common denominator-the emphasis on self. Regardless of religious persuasion, everyone seems to be fighting what they perceive to be a shared enemy: low self-esteem.

  • How To Help People Change

    $9.94

    While touching on many aspects of counseling, this book . . . is specifically designed to elucidate the process of counseling. I have often mentioned and illustrated that process, but not in the focused and systematic way that the four-step biblical process is set forth here . . . . This book presents a fresh perspective not only on how to counsel, but also on what measures to take at what stages of counseling. (from the Preface) Change is the essential goal of the counseling process. And Christian counselors recognize, as the author is so concerned to remind us, Substantial change requires the alteration of the heart. How does a Christian counselor work in order to bring about this kind of change? The answer is found, of course, in Scripture — in 2 Timothy 3:14–17, to be specific. Jay Adams is well-known as a counselor who bases his whole approach to counseling on Scripture. This book offers the interested reader an unparalleled opportunity to see both how he discovers and applies biblical principles and the way in which Scripture functions as the basis of his approach to counseling. This book answers not only the question How does a counselor help people change? but also How does Scripture operate as the source of a counselor’s method? It is a book that has much to say about the ongoing discussion of the relationship between theology and psychology in the enterprise of Christian counseling.

  • Theology Of Christian Counseling

    $12.99

    A Theology of Christian Counseling is a book that connects biblical doctrine with practical living. Salvation, that central concern of Protestant theology, is often too narrowly defined. It is thought to be being saved from the consequences of sin. But God is doing much more. He is making something new out of the old sinful nature. He is, in Christ, making new creatures. No counseling system that is based on some other foundation can begin to offer what Christian counseling offers . . . No matter what the problem is, no matter how greatly sin has abounded, the Christian counselor’s stance is struck by the far-more-abounding nature of the grace of Jesus Christ in redemption. What a difference this makes in counseling! In this book the reader will gain an insight into the rich theological framework that supports and directs a biblical approach to counseling. And the connection between solid theology and practical application will become compelling. This is a one-of-a-kind. Don’t ignore it!
