  • Engaging With Mormons

    $12.99

    A former Mormon writes an introduction to what Mormons believe and how Christians can reach out to them with the gospel.

    Many people see Mormons as just another branch of the Christian church, and to be admired, perhaps, for their family life, morality and upright culture.

    But the theology and spirituality of this cult are very far from an orthodox biblical understanding of true saving faith. And yet Christians are often fearful of engaging in conversations about the gospel with Mormons, knowing that there are suspicions and complex issues that lie beneath the surface.

    This short book is designed to help both Christians and whole churches to understand more about the beliefs, mindset and motivations of those who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons), and to reach out to them with the good news of the gospel.

    Written at a level that everyone can understand, this book emphasizes the importance of forming loving, honest and open relationships as part of the way we engage with our Mormon friends and neighbors, and with those who may come knocking at our doors. Continue Reading Engaging With Mormons

  • Unveiled : The Bible, The Qur’an, And Women

    $14.99

    I am an ex-terrorist.
    I raised my hand high to volunteer to become a jihadi fighter, but then I met Jesus . . .
    and that changed everything.

    Born the unwanted third daughter, Esther Ahmad grew up Muslim in Pakistan. Her faith and country drove every aspect of her first 18 years, from what she wore and what she ate to her prospects for work and marriage, even to the manner of her death.

    Unveiled chronicles Esther’s conversion to Christianity and escape from radical Islam. Chapter by chapter, Esther lays out the lies of the Qur’an and holds them against the truths she found in the Bible. As she examines the differences between the Muslim and Christian scriptures, she reveals how she found her true identity as she journeyed from unwanted daughter to cherished child of God, from being marked by impurity to taking on the purity of Christ, and from being enslaved to rote prayer to becoming free in a true relationship with God.

    Esther’s white-knuckle journey will open your eyes to the plight of women around the world and inspire you to find the courage you need to speak the hope of Christ into the lives of those who still live behind the veil. Continue Reading Unveiled : The Bible, The Qur’an, And Women

  • Sacred Dissonance : The Blessing Of Difference In Jewish Christian Dialogue

    $29.95

    Moving beyond the all-too-common shallow recognition of differences, Sacred Dissonance: The Blessing of Difference in Jewish- Christian Dialogue explores the essential distinctions between religious identities and the cultural boundaries between Jews and Christians. Co-authored by colleagues deeply committed to their respective faiths-one a Jewish lawyer, one a Christian New Testament scholar-this book stands in opposition to the notion that all religions are basically the same, an idea commonly put forward in many secular circles or among those who follow personally appointed folkways rather than traditional religions.

    Through deeply introspective essays on topics as personal as neighborhood relations and hospitality, and as difficult and sweeping as the Holocaust, Sacred Dissonance challenges the notion that a passive and self-contained approach to religious distinction will bring about peaceful coexistence. In candid conversations between the authors, every section of Sacred Dissonance models the ways in which conversation can be the means of both addressing a difficult past and a challenging present. In the course of exploring the ways in which Jews and Christians can speak to one another, Le Donne and Behrendt show that Christianity can become a pro-Jewish religion, Judaism can become a pro-Christian religion, and communities of faith can open space for others, rather than turning them away, even without breaking down the differences between them.

    Postscript

    Additional Info
    How do we make sense of the world’s different religions? In today’s globalized society, religion is deeply intertwined with every issue we see on the news. But talking about multiple religions can be contentious. Are different faiths compatible somehow? And how can we know whether one religion is more true than another? In this creative thought experiment, Peter Kreeft invites us to encounter dialogues on the world’s great faiths. His characters Thomas Keptic and Bea Lever are students in Professor Fesser’s course on world religions, and the three explore the content and distinctive claims of each. Together they probe the plausibility of major religions, from Hinduism and Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. Along the way they explore how religions might relate to each other and to what extent exclusivism or inclusivism might make sense. Ultimately Kreeft gives us helpful tools for thinking fairly and critically about competing religious beliefs. If the religions are different kinds of music, do they together make harmony or cacophony? Decide for yourself. Continue Reading Between One Faith And Another

  • No God But One Allah Or Jesus

    $19.99

    On account of the superficial points of agreement between Islam and Christianity, many don’t see how tremendously deep the divides between them really are, and fewer still have considered the evidence for each faith. How is Jihad different from the Crusades? Can we know the life of Jesus as well as the life of Muhammad? What reason is there to believe in one faith over the other, and what difference can the Gospel really make? In No God But One, New York Times bestselling author Nabeel Qureshi takes readers on a global, historical, yet deeply personal journey to the heart of the world’s two largest religions. He explores the claims that each faith makes upon believers’ intellects and lives, critically examining the evidence in support of their distinctive beliefs. Fleshed out with stories from the annals of both religions, No God But One unveils the fundamental, enduring conflict between Islam and Christianity-directly addressing controversial topics like Jihad, the Crusades, Sharia, the Trinity, and more. Readers of Qureshi’s first book, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, will appreciate his careful and respectful comparison of Islam and Christianity. Both religions teach that there is No God But One, but who deserves to be worshiped, Allah or Jesus? Continue Reading No God But One Allah Or Jesus

  • Cross In The Shadow Of The Crescent

    $16.99

    Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America. In this compelling new book, best-selling author, Erwin Lutzer, urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern. We have now reached a tipping point, the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion. At the same time, this opens an incredible door of ministry for Christians, for Muslims normally do not have access to the gospel in their own lands. In The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent, readers will discover helpful answers to these questions and more:

    – How does Islams growing influence affect me personally?
    – In what ways are our freedoms of speech and religion in danger?
    – How can I extend Christ’s love to Muslims around me?

    A sensitive, responsible, and highly informative must-read! Continue Reading Cross In The Shadow Of The Crescent

  • Diversity Culture : Creating Conversations Of Faith With Buddhist Baristas

    $14.99

    A new culture is emerging-one of spiritual openness, moral flexibility, and social diversity. This diversity culture makes evangelicals uncomfortable, not because they feel threatened, but because they feel excluded. Writing from the perspective of a conservative evangelical, author Matthew Raley tackles the social tensions between evangelicals and the diversity culture. Drawing on analysis of contemporary media, ancient sources, and Scripture, The Diversity Culture examines cultural barriers and how they can be broken, helping Christians understand this cosmopolitan group on their own terms. This incisive and much-needed book gives believers the understanding and tools they need to cross socioeconomic, ethical, and ideological barriers and heal relationships in the name of Christ.
