  • Positive Psychology In Christian Perspective

    $45.00

    Originally the field of psychology had a threefold mission: to cure mental illness, yes, but also to find ways to make life fulfilling for all and to maximize talent. Over the last century, a focus on mental illness has often been prioritized over studies of health, to the point that many people assume psychologist is just another way of saying psychotherapist. This book is about one attempt to restore the discipline’s larger mission.

    Positive psychology attends to what philosophers call the good life. It is about fostering strength and living well–about how to do a good job at being human. Some of that will involve cheerful emotions, and some of it will not. There are vital roles to be played by archetypal challenges such as those involving self-control, guilt, and grit, and even the terror of death enters into positive psychology’s vision of human flourishing. Charles Hackney connects this still-new movement to foundational concepts in philosophy and Christian theology. He then explores topics such as subjective states, cognitive processes, and the roles of personality, relationships, and environment, also considering relevant practices in spheres from the workplace to the church and even the martial arts dojo. Hackney takes seriously the range of critiques positive psychology has faced as he frames a constructive future for Christian contributions to the field.

  • Truth About Men

    $26.00

    In this cultural moment of discussions about sexual harrassment and assault, DeVon Franklin, bestselling author of The Wait and well-respected Christian leader, speaks out frankly and openly about why men act badly and how to change their behavior.

    Society encourages a strange dynamic: it says boys will be boys, that’s just locker room talk and sow your oats, but when men are unfaithful, abusive, or destructive, the same society that encouraged them to indulge their bad behavior now wonders, how could you have done something like that?

    In The Truth About Men, DeVon Franklin, the bestselling author and Hollywood producer whom Oprah Winfrey has called a new kind of spiritual leader for our time, speaks out about why men act badly and what we can do to help bring change, both on a personal and a societal level. He argues that the same discipline that drives men to excel in their professional lives needs to be applied to their private lives. He uses the analogy of a dog that needs to be trained as a means to explore why bad behavior persists and what can lead men to act against their vows, their integrity, and even their character. He argues that learning to tame the beast is an essential remedy for men who desire to be good men, and lays out a plan for how men can deal with the beast within them: by acknowledging it, holding it accountable with the support of other men, learning self-control, and submitting to God. He also provides practical solutions for how both men and women can encourage better behavior and how we, as a society, can expect better.

    This groundbreaking book is an informative, inspiring, and compelling look at a problem we are all wrestling with and offers a way forward for men and women alike. Continue Reading Truth About Men

  • Listening To Sexual Minorities

    $28.00

    Students arrive on campus with various boxes of belongings to unpack, some heavy, some tidy, some more valuable, some more private. For many students, two of these boxes could be labeled My Faith and My Sexuality-and these two can be among the most cumbersome to handle. How to balance the two without having to set one down? How to hold them both closely, both securely, but still move forward to settle in with new friends in a new environment? How to keep from dropping one or the other, spilling its embarrassing contents for all to see?

    Such can be the struggle for any student, but especially for any sexual minority who identifies or struggles with an LGB+ identity or same-sex attraction on a Christian college campus. For these students their faith and their sexuality often feel both tender and in acute tension. Who is God making them to be? What do they need to grow in to develop faithfully, and what might they need to leave behind? How can they truly flourish?

    The research team of Yarhouse, Dean, Stratton, and Lastoria draw on their decades of experience both in the psychology of sexual identity and in campus counseling to bring us the results of an original longitudinal study into what sexual minorities themselves experience, hope for, and benefit from. Rich with both quantitative and qualitative data, their book gives an unprecedented opportunity to listen to sexual minorities in their own words, as well as to observe patterns and often surprising revelations about life and personal development both on campus and after graduation.

    Listening to Sexual Minorities will be an indispensable resource not only for counselors and psychologists but also for faculty, student-development leaders, and administrators in higher education as well as leaders in the church and wider Christian community who want to create an intentional environment to hear from and contribute to the spiritual flourishing of all.

  • Think This Not That

    $14.99

    What we think about radically affects us body, soul, and spirit.

    Contrary to popular belief, circumstances do not determine our mood. Instead, our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors flow from our interpretations of events. In the mind, we give meaning to troubling events, and that meaning causes us emotional pain and turmoil.

    Philippians 4:8 challenges us to think about what is true, right, pure, and excellent, but it is not simply a charge to think positively. How we think actually changes how we respond to crises and difficult situations. Drawing on her experience as a clinical psychotherapist and a trauma survivor, Rita Schulte gives a prescription for better health and well-being that combines faith and science. Through a strong connection to God, mindfulness techniques, and target exercises, you can change toxic thinking patterns and rewire your brain to achieve optimum mental and physical health.

    The God-Shaped Brain Study Guide

    Additional Info
    What you believe about God actually changes your brain. Brain research in neuroscience has found that our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical, mental, and spiritual health. Mind and body are interrelated, and we are designed for healthy relationships of love and trust. When we understand God as good and loving, we flourish. Unfortunately, many of us have distorted images of God and mostly think of him in fearful, punitive ways. This leads us into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. But our lives can change when God renews our minds with a truer picture of him. Psychiatrist Tim Jennings unveils how our brains and bodies thrive when we have a healthy understanding of who God is. He dispels common misconceptions about God and shows how different God concepts affect the brain differently. Our brains can adapt, change, and rewire with redeemed thinking that frees us from unnecessary pain and suffering. Discover how neuroscience and Scripture come together to bring healing and transformation to our lives. This expanded edition now includes a study guide for individual reflection or group discussion, with questions for learning from Scripture, science and nature, and experience.

  • Witness Of Religion In An Age Of Fear

    $16.00

    We live in a world driven by fear. But should we allow fear to play such a large role in our lives? According to the religions of the world, the answer is no.

    In this helpful and illuminating book, Michael Kinnamon challenges readers to consider why we find ourselves in this age of fear and what we can do about it. Drawing on support from a diversity of religious traditions and teachers, Kinnamon argues that religious faith is the best way to combat a culture of fear. He explores fear in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the American political scene, and he shares courageous examples of individuals from different religions working for peace.

    Perfect for individuals or group study, this book helps readers understand the manipulative power of fear and how religious beliefs call us to reject fear at all costs. A study guide is included. Continue Reading Witness Of Religion In An Age Of Fear
