  • Prey Tell : Why We Silence Women Who Tell The Truth And How Everyone Can Sp


    Tiffany Bluhm wishes this wasn’t her story to tell. Yet like many women today who are taking action against sexual harassment and sexual assault, it is. Bluhm explores the complex dynamics of power and abuse in systems we all find ourselves in. With honesty and strength, she tells stories of how women have overcome silence to expose the truth about their ministry and professional leaders–and the backlash they so often face. In so doing, she empowers others to speak up against abuses of power.

    Addressing men and women in all work settings–within the church and beyond–popular author and podcast host Tiffany Bluhm sets out to understand the cultural and spiritual narratives that silence women and to illuminate the devastating emotional, financial, and social impact of silence in the face of injustice.

    As readers journey with Bluhm, they will be moved to find their own way, their own voice, and their own conviction for standing with women. They’ll emerge more ready than ever to advocate for justice, healing, and resurrection. Continue Reading Prey Tell : Why We Silence Women Who Tell The Truth And How Everyone Can Sp

  • Journey Out : How I Followed Jesus Away From Gay


    You’ve been looking for Jesus.

    At one time or another you have likely felt conflicted by two opposing desires: the longing to be truly seen and known, versus the drive to hide from real intimacy. This universal human experience points to one simple truth – we want to be loved, but are ashamed of our unworthiness.

    Only one Person could ever meet you in this dilemma, seeing your darkest secrets without flinching, offering the power to change, and loving you without an agenda. This Person is Jesus.

    Before meeting Jesus, Ken Williams describes himself as a homosexual who was tormented by shame and on the brink of committing suicide. But in the person of Jesus, Ken discovered the affirmation, love, and wholeness he had been seeking.

    Since then, Ken has worked tirelessly to help others experience the same hope he found. Today, his life’s work is to cultivate a productive and compassionate environment for those bound by sexual shame, insecurity, and fear, so that they can thrive in righteousness, peace and joy!

    In Changed, Ken Williams will…
    *Reveal that change and freedom from same sex attraction are possible
    *Demystify homosexuality and gender identity issues
    *Help you to make a deep, authentic connection with Jesus
    *Offer wisdom for supporters: parents, family, friends, or pastors

    If you are longing to be deeply known and unconditionally loved, your heart is crying out for Jesus. You will meet Him in the pages of Changed, and discover a new life filled with true hope and enduring joy! Continue Reading Journey Out : How I Followed Jesus Away From Gay

  • Hope For This Present Crisis


    Our culture has lost its mind. Now, we are waging a bigger fight-a war for our soul.

    Is it possible our world has gone mad? We are under siege and the war is not from without; it is from within. The collapse of the Roman Empire occurred in a single generation and was not so much the result of invasions by their enemies but the result of moral decay and internal corruption. Similar patterns are emerging in America. We neglected or abandoned our traditional institutions long ago, but now it’s time to take them back.

    Today, forces are at work to strip the principles and precepts of faith from public venues or minimize their significance. Many progressive leaders are convinced that when Christianity disintegrates it will create peace on earth. But the loss of our heritage will merely create a spiritual vacuum that will be filled with folly, crammed with chaos, or invaded by Islam. The reality is: Western civilization will become so decadent and reckless that America will collapse like a house of cards.

    In Hope for This Present Crisis, Dr. Youssef provides a diagnosis of the insanity of the current culture and a seven-step prescription for restoring sanity to a world gone mad.  Here’s the seven-step path to restoring a world gone mad:

    *Remember the Truth – Stand firm on the truth of the gospel.

    *Restore the Soul – Seek God’s approval not the approval of other people.

    *Revitalize the Family – Guard your children from the horrors of the Internet.

    *Reestablish the Classroom – Support conscientious, caring public school teachers.

    *Respect our Freedoms – Know your rights.Reform our Society – Morally and spiritually purify yourself.

    *Revive the Church – Demonstrate the forgiving love of Jesus at all times.

    This book will teach you how to stand up to attacks on your faith, and defend Christianity as a meaningful contribution to society. Continue Reading Hope For This Present Crisis

  • More Than A Battle


    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. Continue Reading More Than A Battle

  • We Will Not Be Silenced


    When You Want to Speak Up but Aren’t Sure What to Say

  • Praying With Our Feet


    At age twenty, Lindsey Krinks was on track to lead an upwardly mobile life. But a devastating injury and an unexpected encounter with a homeless organizing group disrupted her plans and opened her eyes to the immense suffering around her. Awakened to a fierce pursuit of justice and a faith that called her to pray with her feet, Krinks plunged into the underside of American society, where she found both staggering loss and astounding love.

    As a street chaplain, activist, and cofounder of Open Table Nashville, Krinks has discovered faith in tent cities, alleys, slums, and on the frontlines of justice movements. Praying with Our Feet invites us on an unforgettable spiritual journey and encourages us to put our faith into action. Krinks challenges common perceptions about people who live on the streets, calling Christians to move from charity to justice and get their hands dirty in the struggle for a better world.

    Readers who are overwhelmed by the world’s suffering but don’t know where to start will find much inspiration in this moving book. Includes end-of-chapter discussion questions. Continue Reading Praying With Our Feet

  • Refuge Reimagined : Biblical Kinship In Global Politics


    Mark R. Glanville and Luke Glanville offer a new approach to compassion for displaced people: a biblical ethic of kinship. Challenging the fear-based ethic that often motivates Christian approaches, they demonstrate how this ethic is consistently conveyed throughout the Bible and can be practically embodied today.

    The global crisis of forced displacement is growing every year. At the same time, Western Christians’ sympathy toward refugees is increasingly overshadowed by concerns about personal and national security, economics, and culture. We urgently need a perspective that understands both Scripture and current political realities and that can be applied at the levels of the church, the nation, and the globe. In Refuge Reimagined, Mark R. Glanville and Luke Glanville offer a new approach to compassion for displaced people: a biblical ethic of kinship. God’s people, they argue, are consistently called to extend kinship-a mutual responsibility and solidarity-to those who are marginalized and without a home. Drawing on their respective expertise in Old Testament studies and international relations, the two brothers engage a range of disciplines to demonstrate how this ethic is consistently conveyed throughout the Bible and can be practically embodied today. Glanville and Glanville apply the kinship ethic to issues such as the current mission of the church, national identity and sovereignty, and possibilities for a cooperative global response to the refugee crisis. Challenging the fear-based ethic that often motivates Christian approaches, they envision a more generous, creative, and hopeful way forward. Refuge Reimagined will equip students, activists, and anyone interested in refugee issues to understand the biblical model for communities and how it can transform our world.

  • Embodied : Transgender Identities, The Church, And What The Bible Has To Sa


    Compassionate, biblical, and thought-provoking, Embodied is an accessible guide for Christians who want help navigating issues related to transgenderism. Preston Sprinkle draws on Scripture as well as real-life stories of individuals struggling with gender dysphoria to help readers understand the complexities and emotions of this highly relevant topic. With careful research and an engaging style, Embodied explores:

    *What it means to be transgender, nonbinary, and gender-queer, and how these identities relate to being male or female

    *What the Bible says about humans created in God’s image as male and female, and how this relates to transgender experiences

    *Moral questions surrounding medical interventions such as sex reassignment surgery

    *Which pronouns to use and how to navigate the bathroom debate

    *Why more and more teens are questioning their gender

    Written for Christian leaders, pastors, and parents, Embodied fills the great need for Christians to speak into the confusing and emotionally charged questions surrounding the transgender conversation. Continue Reading Embodied : Transgender Identities, The Church, And What The Bible Has To Sa

  • Journeys Of Choice


    A Wellspring of Hope in a Hopeless Place

    At 16 years old, Donna Grisham was raped. Left violated, broken, and pregnant, she had an abortion. Her life quickly became a downward spiral of hopelessness and fear.

    Many who receive news of an unplanned pregnancy can relate. Finding yourself in a similar situation, you may feel robbed of your freedom to choose-as though every decision has already been made, leaving you without a voice, paralyzed by fear.

    But dear friend, fear is a liar.

    Through the darkest time in her life, God revealed Himself to Donna as the Great Redeemer, and He can do the same for you.

    In Journeys of Choice, Donna shares her own story, along with inspiring testimonies from Abby Johnson ( Unplanned), Jeri Hill (widow of Evangelist Steve Hill, Together in the Harvest), Jessi Green (Saturate OC), and many others.

    Journeys of Choice offers wisdom for making godly decisions in the midst of trauma and crisis, and hope for supernatural redemption from a broken past.

    Discover the Wellspring of Hope in the midst of your hopelessness. Meet the Author of new beginnings! Take heart! All is not lost. Continue Reading Journeys Of Choice

  • Gen SeXYZ : Love, Sexuality And Youth


    Corrupt the young. Get them away from religion. Encourage their interest in sex….-Vladimir Lenin, 1921, How to Destroy the West

    Going through each of the prophetic statements made by Lenin in 1921 shows why America is where it is today. Only 4 percent of Gen Z think about life through a biblical lens. To them, sexuality is more important than friends, family, or their faith.

    Jeff Grenell’s goal in Gen SeXYZ: Love, Sexuality & Youth is to reach youth, youth leaders, and the church with a message that kicks the devil to the curb and restores sexuality to its God-given origins.

    When the church failed to respond to the sexual revolution of the 1960s and the present one of the 21st century, its role in society crumbled. The media stopped censoring, the government redefined marriage, schools taught progressive sex education, and the list of genders grew. We’ve experienced generational loss because we’ve gotten further away from the source of our original knowledge of sexuality: the Bible.

    Jeff points out that our understanding of sexuality must be anchored to the fact that God is love and the devil stole sex. He provides direct quotations from teenagers and leaders, practical knowledge, and tools to launch a spiritual revolution of love and truth that will grow the church to reach younger generations and combat the loveless, godless sexuality ethic in our culture that’s misleading them. Continue Reading Gen SeXYZ : Love, Sexuality And Youth

  • Help Her Be Brave


    Discover your place in the pro-life movement.

    What if we lived in a world where every woman with an unplanned pregnancy always felt empowered to choose life for her unborn baby? To create that kind of change, it will take all of us. As the church, we can play a powerful role in making abortion unthinkable. With Help Her Be Brave, you can discover your part in saving lives and find your pro-life passion.

    This includes how to:
    *Learn practical ways to get involved using your unique gifts and talents
    *Find women with unexpected pregnancies and connect them to support
    *Use your influence and be a voice for the voiceless
    *Make your church a refuge for abortion vulnerable women

    If abortion became illegal today, the church isn’t ready to help women practically, spiritually and emotionally. It’s time to change that. We can’t look away any longer. This is our moment for us to stand up and help her be brave. Continue Reading Help Her Be Brave

  • How To Fight Racism


    Racism is pervasive in today’s world, and many are complicit in the failure to confront its evils. Jemar Tisby, author of the award-winning The Color of Compromise, believes we need to move beyond mere discussions about racism and begin equipping people with the practical tools to fight against it.

    How to Fight Racism is a handbook for pursuing racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple framework–the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice–that helps readers consistently interrogate their own actions and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This book is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.

    Tisby roots the ultimate solution to racism in the Christian faith as we embrace the implications of what Jesus taught his followers. Beginning in the church, he provides an opportunity to be part of the solution and suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope that will transform our nation and the world. Tisby encourages us to reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for human dignity across racial and ethnic lines. Readers of the book will come away with a clear model for how to think about race in productive ways and a compelling call to dismantle a social hierarchy long stratified by skin color.

  • Chasing Love : Sex, Love, And Relationships In A Confused Culture


    The music we listen to, the movies we watch-they’re all telling us to keep chasing love, and that we’ll finally be happy when we find it.

    But is love really all we need?

    The love that the world tells us to pursue is all about self, about following your heart’s desires. But what is the Christian worldview on love? When we follow Jesus, we realize that he invites us to reorient the focus of our lives, so instead of chasing love primarily for our own happiness, we are first and foremost to give love-to God and to others.

    In Chasing Love, Sean McDowell will invite readers into Jesus’ radical, upside-down approach to love, and in doing so, he’ll answer some of the toughest questions we’re asking about love today:

    *How does Jesus speak to singleness?
    *What does the gospel say about LGBTQ issues?
    *Can sexual sin truly be forgiven?
    *What if I’m not happy in my marriage? Continue Reading Chasing Love : Sex, Love, And Relationships In A Confused Culture

  • Next Jihad : Stop The Christian Genocide In Africa


    Drawing from on-the-ground experience and personal testimonials, two of the world’s leading advocates for religious freedom and human rights-one Jewish and one Christian-explain what’s happening to Christians across Africa, why it matters, and what must be done now.

    Although news of Christians being killed overseas hits major media outlets from time to time, the news quickly fades away while our fellow believers continue to suffer. Johnnie Moore, as he has done before, wants to awaken the church and American politicians to the daily horrors happening to Christians, focusing this time on Africa.

    While the world has been fixated on jihadist threats in the Middle East, terrorists from Nigeria to Kenya have had free reign to massacre on a scale far beyond that of the terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Whole villages have been razed, mothers and children have been grotesquely killed, and an unabashed effort at ethnic cleansing has been embarked upon with unrelenting resolve. Their intention is to rid Africa of its Christians, either by forced conversion to Islam or by destruction and murder.

    Moore is writing this book with Rabbi Abraham Cooper, an Orthodox Jew, who is a regular contributor to FOX News and is the associate dean and director of Global Social Action Agenda for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish human rights organization with more than 400,000 family members. With their many connections in politics and media, as well as their respective faith communities, Moore and Rabbi Cooper will be able to reach a wide audience with this message.

  • Institutional Intelligence : How To Build An Effective Organization


    Institutions matter. But we often view them somewhat cynically, perhaps as a necessary evil.

    In truth, institutions remain essential to human flourishing. They are the very means by which communities thrive, individual vocations are fulfilled, and society is changed for the good. We all must learn the wisdom of working effectively within institutions-what Gordon Smith calls institutional intelligence.

    In this book Smith unlocks the essential elements of how institutions function in a productive, healthy manner. Focusing on the nonprofit sector, he shows how team leaders, directors, executives, board members, key stakeholders, and employees can avoid what is often their greatest source of stress on the job-working with the institutional character of their organizations.

    Church staff, educators, and those in service agencies can all thrive by understanding these dynamics instead of fighting against them. By developing institutional intelligence, we and those around us can not only flourish personally but also fulfill a larger mission. Continue Reading Institutional Intelligence : How To Build An Effective Organization

  • Redeeming Power : Understanding Authority And Abuse In The Church


    Power has a God-given role in human relationships and institutions, but it can lead to abuse when used in unhealthy ways. Speaking into current #metoo and #churchtoo conversations, this book shows that the body of Christ desperately needs to understand the forms power takes, how it is abused, and how to respond to abuses of power.

    Although many Christians want to prevent abuse in their churches and organizations, they lack a deep and clear-eyed understanding of how power actually works. Internationally recognized psychologist Diane Langberg offers a clinical and theological framework for understanding how power operates, the effects of the abuse of power, and how power can be redeemed and restored to its proper God-given place in relationships and institutions. This book not only helps Christian leaders identify and resist abusive systems but also shows how they can use power to protect the vulnerable in their midst.

  • Christian Antisemitism : Confrontng The Lies In Today’s Church


    Hate isn’t a thing from history.

    The Jewish people and Israel have been described as a dominant and moving force behind the present and coming evils of our day; a monstrous system of evil…[that] will destroy us and our children if not resisted; and a group that seeks the annihilation of almost every Gentile man, woman, and child and the establishment of a satanic Jewish-led global dictatorship. What’s worse is that these comments were all made by professing Christians.

    In Christian Antisemitism, respected Messianic Bible scholar Michael L. Brown, PhD, documents shocking examples of modern Christian antisemitism and exposes the lies that support them. Carefully researched, this book shows that church-based antisemitism is no longer a thing of the past. Rather, a dangerous, shocking tide of Christian antisemitism has begun to rise. In Christian Antisemitism, Dr. Brown shows you how to stem this tide now and overcome the evil of Christian antisemitism with the powerful love of the cross!

    This book will show you how to confront everyday antisemitism in all areas of your life and become a champion for the people of Israel. Continue Reading Christian Antisemitism : Confrontng The Lies In Today’s Church

  • Revolution : An Urgent Call To A Holy Uprising


    A revolution of repentance by the power of the Holy Spirit is needed in the church to bring renewal to a hurting nation.

    After reading Revolution you will understand what a biblical revolution looks like and how to implement it, starting within your own heart, and going outward from there.

    This book is not a call to the violent overthrow of the government, nor is it a call to take up arms, nor is it a call to political activism in and of itself. It is a call to something far more extreme, a call to live out the gospel with all its radical claims, a call for the people of God to impact this generation with the prophetic message of repentance, a call to spark the most sweeping counterculture movement in our nation’s history, a call to take back the moral high ground that has been stolen from under our feet, a call to follow Jesus by life or by death. Revolution answers such questions as: What is the role of the Christian and the church during these tumultuous times?

    *How are we to respond to the racial upheaval happening in our nation?

    *What is the church’s role in healing the divide in our fractured, divided country?

    Dr. Brown turns up the volume in this call to God’s remnant people to pray, repent, and act according to the teachings of Jesus–who is calling us to holy revolution. Continue Reading Revolution : An Urgent Call To A Holy Uprising

  • She Found His Grace


    When Serena Dyksen heard the news that over 2,200 babies’ remains were found on the property of abortion doctor Ulrich George Klopfer, her whole body went numb from shock. She began to sob tears of grief. Is my baby one of those remains? she questioned. Dr. Klopfer performed her abortion when she was just thirteen years old.

    Just months before, Serena had decided to share her abortion story. After watching one of the last scenes in the pro-life movie Unplanned, she felt it was time to share the hope and healing God had done in her life. Serena’s story reads like a traumatic tale: a childhood of dysfunction, rape, abortion at thirteen years old, a pregnant teenager at the age of sixteen, health issues, and a devastating event that led her to alcohol and drug abuse.

    But in her book, She Found His Grace: A True Story of Hope, Love and Forgiveness After Abortion, Serena reveals the transforming power of God’s healing in her life that set her completely free. She now finds comfort from Genesis 50:20 (ESV): As for me, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.

    Serena wants everyone who reads her book to know that she walks in freedom because of the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone needs to walk through the healing process of their past abortion, no matter what the circumstances, she testifies. If you don’t, you will be walking through deception, pain, and all the bondage that goes with that. But the same God who sent people to show His love for me is the same God who will redeem your life too!

    Headlines of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s evil highlights the horrors of the abortion industry, but Serena’s testimony overshadows that darkness with the truth of God’s word. There is forgiveness, hope, and healing for your past abortion. God shines through my life; he can shine through yours too! Continue Reading She Found His Grace

  • Impossible Marriage : What Our Mixed-Orientation Marriage Has Taught Us Abo


    People say our marriage is impossible. Laurie and Matt Krieg are in a mixed-orientation marriage: a marriage in which at least one partner’s primary attraction isn’t toward the gender of their spouse. In the Kriegs’ case, Laurie is primarily attracted to women-and so is Matt. Some find the idea of mixed-orientation marriage bewildering or even offensive. But as the Kriegs have learned, nothing is impossible with God-and that’s as true of their marriage as anyone else’s. In An Impossible Marriage, the Kriegs tell their story: how they met and got married, the challenges and breakthroughs of their journey, and what they’ve learned about marriage along the way. Christianity teaches us that marriage is a picture of Jesus’ love for the church-and that’s just as true in a mixed-orientation marriage as in a straight one. With vulnerability and wisdom, this book lays out an engaging picture of marriage in all its pain and beauty. It’s a picture that points us, over and over again, to the love and grace of Jesus-as marriage was always meant to do.

  • Faith In The Shadow Of A Pandemic


    In our lifetime, we have never experienced a disaster with effects as widespread as the COVID-19 pandemic. The terrorist attacks of 9/11 certainly caused upheaval, but they didn’t force people to shelter at home or cause churches to stop meeting. As we slowly work back to our normal lives – or a new normal – we must recognize this will not be the last major disaster we will ever have to face. But what does that mean for the Church, especially the local congregation?

    Faith in the Shadow of a Pandemic aims to provide comfort, hope, and guidance for church members experiencing the massive upheavals created by huge disasters – such as earthquakes, tornadoes, war, or even another pandemic – without the ability to come together around Word and Sacrament in church.

    Churches are being forced to reexamine Word and Sacrament ministry under the impact of COVID-19. What lessons can be carried into the future, for the next time we face a massive upheaval caused by a disaster?

    Faith in the Shadow of a Pandemic will reassure individual church members who suddenly find themselves in harrowing times without access to worship in their local congregation. Continue Reading Faith In The Shadow Of A Pandemic

  • White Lies : Nine Ways To Expose And Resist The Racial Systems That Divide


    More and more white Christians are awakening to the pervasive bias for white culture, ideas, and actions that shape every aspect of society. Many are eager to resist white supremacy and fight for racial equality–but what steps can be taken to make good, lasting change? Pastor Daniel Hill offers White Lies, a thoughtful, practical guide for confronting and dismantling white supremacy and promoting racial justice in healthy, effective ways.

    White supremacy presents one of the greatest threats to the soul of our nation and the Kingdom of God–but we can do something about it. Drawn from more than twenty years working in cross-cultural communities and learning from some of the greatest leaders of color, pastor and racial equality advocate Daniel Hill offers clarity on what white supremacy is and how it functions.

    In this practical and illuminating guide, Hill provides nine practices rooted in Scripture that will position you to be an active supporter of inclusion, equality, and racial harmony. With stories, studies, and examples from his own journey, Hill will show you:

    *How to get free of the impact of white supremacy individually and recognize it at work systematically
    *How to talk about race in an intelligent and respectful way
    *How to recognize which strategies are helpful and which are harmful

    We cannot experience holistic justice without confronting and dismantling white supremacy. But as we follow Jesus–the one who is supreme over all things–into undoing false power systems, we will become better advocates of the liberating and unconditional love God extends to us all.

  • For The Body


    The human body is an amazing gift, yet today, many people downplay its importance and fail to understand what Christianity teaches about our bodies and their God-given purposes. We misunderstand how the body was designed, its role in relating to others, and lack awareness of the dangers of objectifying the body, divorcing it from its intended purpose.

    In For the Body, author Timothy Tennent looks at what it means to be created in the image of God and how our bodies serve as icons that illuminate God’s purposes. Tennant examines topics like marriage, family, singleness, and friendship, and he looks at how the human body has been objectified in art and media today. He also offers a framework for discipling people today in a Christian theology of the body.

    Tennent explores the contours of a robust Christian vision of the body and human sexuality and the variety of different ways we are called into relationships with others. This book is a call to a deeper understanding of our body and an invitation to recapture the wonder of this amazing gift. It is a theological vision that informs our self-understanding, how we treat others, and how we engage today’s controversial and difficult discussions on human sexuality with grace, wisdom, and confidence.

  • When The Righteous Rule


    It is time for every Christian to stand up, be counted, and be educated on the issues that concern the moral fiber of our country and the future of our families. In When the Righteous Rule: Bible Positions on Political Issues, Pastor Hagee gives insight and educates you on the Bible’s position of various political issues you will face in the voting booth.

    It is time to do more than stand on a soap box and complain. Take a stand for righteousness. Register to vote. Vote our Christian beliefs. We must help take our nation back to the God of our fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We will not be acknowledged for the problems we recognize, but for the problems we help solve.

  • With Liberty And Justice For Some


    In this provocative new book from prophetic preacher and pastor Susan Williams Smith, the author tackles the truths that the church in the United States has long held to be self-evident-that ours is one nation under God, that our U.S. Constitution is (almost) as infallible as the Holy Bible, and that democracy and its principles of justice for all are sacrosanct and protected by both God and government. Yet, history and headlines alike expose the fallacy of those assumptions, particularly when viewed in the light of a national culture of white supremacy and systemic racial injustice. In fact, Smith argues, the two texts we count as sacred have not been merely impotent in eliminating racism; they have been used to support and sustain white supremacy. This important work examines how our foundational documents have failed people of color and ask the question, Can those whom a nation has considered we the problem ever become we the people who are celebrated in the Preamble to the Constitution? What will it take to reclaim the transforming and affirming power of God and government to secure liberty and justice for all? Continue Reading With Liberty And Justice For Some

  • Blackout : How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape From The Democrat P


    Political activist and social media star Candace Owens explains all the reasons how the Democratic Party policies hurt, rather than help, the African American community, and why she and many others are turning right.

    What do you have to lose? This question, posed by then-presidential candidate Donald Trump to potential black voters, was mocked and dismissed by the mainstream media. But for Candace Owens and many others, it was a wake-up call. A staunch Democrat for all of her life, she began to question the left’s policies toward black Americans, and investigate the harm they inflict on the community.

    In Blackout, social media star and conservative commentator Owens addresses the many ways that liberal policies and ideals are actually harmful to African Americans and hinder their ability to rise above poverty, live independent and successful lives, and be an active part of the American Dream. Weaving in her personal story that brought her from the projects to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she demonstrates how she overcame her setbacks and challenges despite the cultural expectation that she should embrace a victim mentality.

    Owens argues that government assistance is a double-edged sword, that the left dismisses the faith so important to the black community, that Democratic permissiveness toward abortion disproportionately affects the black babies, that the #MeToo movement hurts black men, and much more. Well-researched and intelligently argued, Blackout lays bare the myth that all black people should vote Democrat-and shows why turning to the right will leave them happier, more successful, and more self-sufficient.

  • Assault On America







    America today is like a patient valiantly struggling to live yet is being forcibly euthanized by her doctors. The life force within the patient- fighting for survival- is the honest citizens like yourself. The team of care givers, an amalgam of both ineptitude and malice- are the local and national leaders, actually contributing to the demise of the patient. Sadly, for America, this analogy is the reality we are living today.

    Regrettably, many of our elected officials now have a vested interest in America’s decline: The economy crashing, crime exploding, the Constitution being abolished . . . and your civil rights disappearing. With malice and greed more suited to a Shakespearean tragedy than to the holding of elected office, many of our most famous politicians truly are villains who care nothing about the country they are not serving but harming.

    America is embroiled in a spiritual battle and this you must get ready now for the dark days that lie ahead. Alex McFarland has spent 25 years researching, writing, and teaching on American government, culture, and the philosophies that have shaped history. Read this book to learn:

    *the real source of all of America’s current problems- that no one else is talking about

    *clear predictions about your future as it relates to the outcome of the next election

    *why 2020 will go down as one of the most pivotal years in world history

    *what you can do now to face tomorrow secular- regardless of what tomorrow brings Continue Reading Assault On America

  • Mind Of A Conservative Woman


    Reject our society’s liberal bias against conservative women – and learn how traditional principles will secure a better future for us all – with this inspiring guide from a political powerhouse.

    The Mind of a Conservative Woman challenges women to improve their place in life and open doors for themselves and the next generation through the courage of their convictions. Blackburn expounds upon why beliefs labeled as traditional have common ground and can improve all of society, such as:
    *Protecting the next generation, the family, and freedom of faith and values.
    *Supporting a free market that rewards women who apply their talents and rise to great heights.
    *Respecting the institutions in our nation to make change from the inside.
    *Securing an effective government that will not overreach.
    *Honoring and respecting those who hold differing opinions.

    Though it is politically liberal women who receive the attention of left-leaning media and universities, it is conservatism that guarantees what most women hold dear. Blackburn addresses the frustrations of working women and the false perceptions of women presented by the media in general.

    Her maxim Leave Things in Better Shape Than You Found Them will challenge you to improve your place in life – and to create opportunities you never dreamed possible for yourself and those around you. Continue Reading Mind Of A Conservative Woman

  • Reading While Black


    Growing up in the American South, Esau McCaulley knew firsthand the ongoing struggle between despair and hope that marks the lives of some in the African American context. A key element in the fight for hope, he discovered, has long been the practice of Bible reading and interpretation that comes out of traditional Black churches. This ecclesial tradition is often disregarded or viewed with suspicion by much of the wider church and academy, but it has something vital to say. Reading While Black is a personal and scholarly testament to the power and hope of Black biblical interpretation. At a time in which some within the African American community are questioning the place of the Christian faith in the struggle for justice, New Testament scholar McCaulley argues that reading Scripture from the perspective of Black church tradition is invaluable for connecting with a rich faith history and addressing the urgent issues of our times. He advocates for a model of interpretation that involves an ongoing conversation between the collective Black experience and the Bible, in which the particular questions coming out of Black communities are given pride of place and the Bible is given space to respond by affirming, challenging, and, at times, reshaping Black concerns. McCaulley demonstrates this model with studies on how Scripture speaks to topics often overlooked by white interpreters, such as ethnicity, political protest, policing, and slavery. Ultimately McCaulley calls the church to a dynamic theological engagement with Scripture, in which Christians of diverse backgrounds dialogue with their own social location as well as the cultures of others. Reading While Black moves the conversation forward. Continue Reading Reading While Black

  • Dust Of Death


    In 1968, at the climax of the sixties, Os Guinness visited the United States for the first time. There he was struck by an impression he’d already felt in England and elsewhere: beneath all the idealism and struggle for freedom was a growing disillusionment and loss of meaning. Underneath the efforts of a generation, he wrote, lay dust. Even more troubling, Christians seemed uninformed about the cultural shifts and ill-equipped to respond. Guinness took on these concerns by writing his first book, The Dust of Death. In this milestone work, leading social critic Guinness provides a wide-ranging, farsighted analysis of one of the most pivotal decades in Western history, the 1960s. He examines the twentieth-century developments of secular humanism, the technological society, and the alternatives offered by the counterculture, including radical politics, Eastern religions, and psychedelic drugs. As all of these options have increasingly failed to deliver on their promises, Guinness argues, Westerners desperately need another alternative-a Third Way. This way holds the promise of realism without despair, involvement without frustration, hope without romanticism. It offers a stronger humanism, one with a solid basis for its ideals, combining truth and beauty. And this Third Way can be found only in the rediscovery and revival of the historic Christian faith. First published in 1973, The Dust of Death is now back in print as part of the IVP Signature Collection, featuring a new design and new preface by the author. This classic will help readers of every generation better understand the cultural trajectory that continues to shape us and how Christians can still offer a better way.

  • Liberation Is Here


    As a freelance filmmaker, Nikole Lim’s career allowed her to step in and out of the lives of marginalized people around the world. But when confronted with the prevalence of sexual violence in Kenyan and Zambian communities, she committed to advocating alongside the courageous survivors whose lives have intersected with her own. These women’s powerful stories inspired her to embark on a new vocation. Partnering with her Kenyan and Zambian sisters, Lim launched Freely in Hope, an organization focused on equipping survivors to end the cycle of sexual violence throughout Africa through faith, education, and self-empowerment. As Lim sought to provide liberation for her African sisters, her perspective was altered. Exhausted and deathly ill, she witnessed her friends becoming her healers-the once oppressed become her liberators. Illustrated with dramatic full-color photography from Lim’s own camera, Liberation Is Here transports readers to forgotten corners of the world. From the slums of Nairobi, hospitals of Lusaka, killing fields of Kigali, and back alleys of Barcelona, Lim weaves together stories in a narrative of God’s grace and healing amid fear and trauma. Her journey proves that liberation is not just near, but it is here-in the eyes of the broken, the hearts of the oppressed, and the untold stories of our global community.

  • Nations Rage : Prayer, Promise And Power In An Anti-Christian Age


    While the spiritual atmosphere grows more toxic and the world becomes more anti-God, Christians are engaging less and less with their faith in Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. We do not have to fear the future. But we must not be surprised by it or be unprepared to face it.

    In this insightful book, David Sliker helps readers understand and prepare for a future filled with glory and victory for the church, unfolding in the context of unprecedented rage, rebellion, and resistance by the world around us. Full of practical application, this book connects readers to the current storm that is upon us, contextualizing today’s news, current events, and cultural narratives through the lens of biblical prophecy and the return of Jesus.

    The greatest days of the church lie ahead. We can stand strong, persevere, and overcome in these days! Continue Reading Nations Rage : Prayer, Promise And Power In An Anti-Christian Age

  • Theft Of Americas Soul


    It’s time to take back what the devil has stolen and put God back into our culture.

    The Theft of America’s Soul is a prophetic wake-up call for all who desire to see our nation thrive, challenging listeners to exchange these 10 lies for truths that will bring peace of mind, harmony, and prosperity back to our country – an invitation to experience the life-giving, peace-filling, wholly-transforming love of God.

    Phil Robertson, patriarch of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and one of the most recognized voices of conservative Christianity in America, believes that little by little, generation by generation, America has allowed the lines of morality, decency, and virtue to be erased. Our values have disappeared as we began to believe lies – such as that God is dead, truth is relative, and unity is impossible – that have brought discord, division, and protest. But Phil also believes that things can change.

    Writing with captivating storytelling and unflinching honesty, Phil shows how to make America a God-honoring nation once more: by dropping the 10 central lies that rule our day, including:

    *God is dead
    *There is no Devil
    *Truth is relative
    *Sex is for self-gratification Continue Reading Theft Of Americas Soul

  • Live Free Or Die


    America’s top-rated cable news host and #1 New York Times bestselling author offers his first book in ten years: a look at America’s fight against those who would reverse our tradition of freedom-a fight we can’t afford to lose in 2020.

    America is great for a reason. Built on principles of freedom, rugged individualism, and self-sufficiency, no country has ever accumulated more power and wealth, abused it less, or used that power more to advance the human condition.

    And yet, as America blossomed, leftwing radicalism and resentment festered beneath the surface, threatening to undermine democracy first in the sixties and now-more insidiously than ever-in the form of social justice warriors, the deep state, and compromised institutions like academia and the mainstream media.

    Our fate if we succumb to a Democratic victory in 2020? A big step toward full-blown socialism along with the economic dysfunction and social strife that are its hallmarks. With radical Democrats demanding the Green New Deal, socialized medicine, abortion on demand, open borders, abolishing the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, and an end to free speech, our great nation will be fundamentally transformed beyond recognition.

    Ronald Reagan once said, Freedom is but one generation away from extinction, and his words have never rung truer. In Live Free or Die, Sean demonstrates why now is an All Hands on Deck moment to save the Republic. His solution is simple: if all you can do is vote, then vote. But if you can inform people of the truth, that’s even better. And the truth is that the future of American freedom rests on Donald Trump’s reelection. Continue Reading Live Free Or Die

  • Liturgy Of Politics


    A generation of young Christians are weary of the political legacy they’ve inherited and are hungry for a better approach. They’re tired of seeing their faith tied to political battles they didn’t start, and they’re frustrated with leaders they thought they could trust. Kaitlyn Schiess grew up in this landscape, and understands it from the inside. In The Liturgy of Politics, Schiess shows that the church’s politics are shaped by its habits and practices, even when it’s unaware of them. Spiritual formation, and particularly a focus on formative practices, are experiencing a renaissance in Christian thinking-but these ideas are not often applied to the political sphere. Schiess insists that the way out of our political morass is first to recognize the formative power of the political forces all around us, and then to recover historic Christian practices that shape us according to the truth of the gospel.

  • Reconstructing The Gospel


    Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove grew up in the Bible Belt in the American South as a faithful church-going Christian. But he gradually came to realize that the gospel his Christianity proclaimed was not good news for everybody. The same Christianity that sang, Amazing grace, how sweet the sound also perpetuated racial injustice and white supremacy in the name of Jesus. His Christianity, he discovered, was the religion of the slaveholder. Just as Reconstruction after the Civil War worked to repair a desperately broken society, our compromised Christianity requires a spiritual reconstruction that undoes the injustices of the past. Wilson-Hartgrove traces his journey from the religion of the slaveholder to the Christianity of Christ. Reconstructing the gospel requires facing the pain of the past and present, from racial blindness to systemic abuses of power. Grappling seriously with troubling history and theology, Wilson-Hartgrove recovers the subversiveness of the gospel that sustained the church through centuries of slavery and oppression, from the civil rights era to the Black Lives Matter movement and beyond. When the gospel is reconstructed, freedom rings for both individuals and society as a whole. Discover how Jesus continues to save us from ourselves and each other, to repair the breach and heal our land. Continue Reading Reconstructing The Gospel

  • Hope In The Age Of Addiction


    Between alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, pornography, gambling, and eating disorders, fully 25% of the population of the United States is addicted to something. Those addictions are taking a massive physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial toll on individuals, families, and communities. The problem can feel insurmountable. But there is a solution, at once ancient and supported by the latest in neuroscientific research.

    With an honest assessment of the facts, yet always reaching out toward hopeful solutions, counselors Chip Dodd and Stephen James explain what addiction really is, how it works, and why it is so damaging to our hearts, souls, minds, and relationships. They then take us beyond mere coping techniques that allow us to function to the real solution–restoring our broken relationship with our Creator so that we can rediscover how to live fully the way we were created to live. Each chapter includes the personal story of a recovering addict, told from the addict’s point of view. The authors also include a list of books, organizations, workshops, and treatment centers people can turn to for help along the road to lasting recovery.

    An Agustin Agencty Title

    On December 26, 1991, an event of extraordinary importance in universal history took place.

    It involved the dissolution of the Soviet Union, an event of enormous repercussions that almost no one had anticipated. In fact, only the historian Andrei Amalrík1 and Nobel laureate and writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn,2 two Russian dissidents, had enough courage and vision to forecast that such a seismic event would take place.

    Although it is indisputable that the Cold War had come to an end, there are more than a few who intend to continue analyzing the current global situation from the perspective of a historical period that ended four decades ago. Claiming to understand the present with the paradigms of the Cold War-even to a large extent with those espoused by the Left and Right-is a very serious mistake with consequences that are extremely harmful. History has continued to move forward, and just as it would have been foolish to claim to understand Europe of the end of the nineteenth century on the basis of what life was like for Napoleon, who was finally dethroned in 1815; it is absurd, and even ridiculous, to try to understand our world on the basis of what the Cold War entailed.

    In the first part of the present work, we will take into account the analysis of democracy as a recent and often failed regime, as well as consider the dangers that now threaten its very survival. The second part is devoted to the globalist agenda, which constitutes a real threat that seeks to destroy national sovereignty, the power of the Sates, and the democratic system itself. Finally, the third paints a global picture of how reactions are already perceived in light of this globalist agenda, although not all of them lead to a future of freedom, and, certainly, the human race runs a true and real risk of being subjected to totalitarian systems of various kinds. We invite you on this journey with The World is Changing. Continue Reading World Is Changing

    An Agustin Agency Title

    El 26 de diciembre 1991, tuvo lugar un hecho de extraordinaria importancia en la Historia universal. Se trato de la disolucion de la Union Sovietica, un acontecimiento de enormes repercusiones que pocos habian previsto. A decir verdad, solo el historiador Andrei Amalrik y el premio Nobel Alexander Solzhenitsyn , disidentes rusos, habian tenido el valor y la vision para anunciar que semejante seismo tendria lugar. Aunque es indiscutible que la Guerra fria concluyo, no son pocos los que pretenden seguir analizando la situacion actual del globo desde la perspectiva de un periodo historico que termino hace cuatro decadas. Pretender comprender el presente con paradigmas de la Guerra fria – incluso con los de izquierdas y derechas – constituye una equivocacion de consecuencias perjudiciales. La Historia ha seguido avanzando y al igual que habria constituido una necedad pretender comprender la Europa de finales del siglo XIX sobre lo que fue la vida de Napoleon, destronado definitivamente en 1815, es absurdo, e incluso ridiculo, entender nuestro mundo sobre la base de la Guerra fria. Nuestro mundo ha seguido cambiando desde 1991 y lo que resulta aun mas relevante es que ese conjunto de cambios es constante e implica desafios colosales con los que nunca antes ha tenido que enfrentarse el genero humano. Lejos de ser la democracia y la libertad realidades que se imponen de manera casi natural, lo cierto es que se encuentran mas amenazadas que nunca y que esa amenaza no solo es externa sino, en buena medida, tambien interna. Un mundo que cambia es un intento de explicar que es verdaderamente la democracia y su fragilidad, y que es la agenda globalista, la cual amenaza a el patriotismo y la continuidad de la misma democracia.

  • American Awakening : Eight Principles To Restore The Soul Of America


    A healthy and united America–perhaps a country more united than it has ever been–is truly possible, and it starts with us. John Kingston draws on wisdom from history, science, faith, and culture, along with his own experiences, to offer eight principles for discovering purpose, meaning, and true community.

    We live in the greatest peace and prosperity that the world has ever known, but Americans are feeling more division, isolation, depression, and despair than ever before. These are issues of the soul. We seem unable to find purpose and meaning. We can’t find the life that is truly life–a vibrant and purpose-filled way of living best experienced together.

    From his youth, Kingston has always carried a vision for a free and united America. With an approachable and conversational style, as well as a dash of humor, Kingston draws on a diverse and compelling collection of wisdom–the parables of the Bible and the philosophy of Aristotle, the legacy of Nelson Mandela and the speeches of Abraham Lincoln, the songs of Bruce Springsteen and current studies from the best neuro and social scientists today–to remind us that there is no them, there is only us, and we’re in this together.

    In American Awakening, Kingston offers eight timeless principles for breaking through this darkness and despair and cultivating a radical togetherness, both here in this country and around the globe. You’ll discover the profound impact of:
    *In-person connection
    *Making more from less
    *Discovering purpose
    *Redeeming adversity
    *Responding instead of reacting
    *Finding your unique sense of belonging

    Wherever you find yourself politically or spiritually, a healthy and united America starts with you. Join the Awakening movement and let’s rediscover who we are–together. Continue Reading American Awakening : Eight Principles To Restore The Soul Of America

  • House That Love Built


    The House that Love Built is the quintessential story of one woman’s questioning what it means to be an American – and a Christian – in light of a broken immigration system. Through tender stories of opening her heart and home to immigrants, Sarah Jackson shines a holy light on loving our neighbor.

    Sarah Jackson once thought immigration justice was administered through higher walls and longer fences. Then she met an immigrant, and everything changed. As Sarah began to know fractured families ravaged by threats in their homeland and further traumatized in U.S. detention, biblical justice took on a new meaning.

    As Sarah opened her heart – and her home – to immigrants, she experienced a surprising transformation and the gift of extraordinary community. The work she began, Casa de Paz, joins a centuries-long faith that shines a holy light on what it means to truly love our neighbor.

    The dilemma of undocumented people continues to hover over America, and it raises urgent questions for every Christian: What is our role with the stranger in our midst? What does God’s kingdom look like in the global-political reality of immigration? What difference can one person make?

    Sarah engages these questions through profound and tender stories, placing readers in the shoes of individuals on every side of the issue – asylum seekers torn from their families and the guards who oversee them, ordinary people with lapsed visas and the families left to survive on their own, the unheralded advocates for immigrants’ rights and the government officials who decide the fates of others.

    Ultimately, Sarah’s journey illuminates our own as we witness how real hope can be restored through simple yet radical acts of love. Continue Reading House That Love Built

  • God And The Pandemic


    Discover a different way of seeing and responding to the Coronavirus pandemic, an approach drawing on Scripture, Christian history, and the way of living, thinking, and praying revealed to us by Jesus.

    What are we supposed to think about the Coronavirus crisis?

    Some people think they know: This is a sign of the End, they say. It’s all predicted in the book of Revelation.

    Others disagree but are equally clear: This is a call to repent. God is judging the world and through this disease he’s telling us to change.

    Some join in the chorus of blame and condemnation: It’s the fault of the Chinese, the government, the World Health Organization…

    N. T. Wright examines these reactions to the virus and finds them wanting. Instead, he shows that a careful reading of the Bible and Christian history offers simple though profound answers to our many questions, including:
    *What should be the Christian response?
    *How should we think about God?
    *How do we live in the present?
    *Why should we lament?
    *What should we learn about ourselves?
    *How do we recover?

    Written by one of the world’s foremost New Testament scholars, God and the Pandemic will serve as your guide to read the events of today through the light of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Continue Reading God And The Pandemic

    The words of Martin Luther King Jr.’s I Have a Dream speech have become enshrined in US history. But after the end of King’s generation of leadership, what happened to the African American struggle for freedom?

    Like the ancient Israelites, the African American community has survived a four-hundred-year collective trauma. What will it take for them to reach the promised land that King foresaw–to be truly free at last? In this classic historical and cultural study, Carl Ellis offers an in-depth assessment of the state of African American freedom and dignity. Stressing how important it is for African Americans to reflect on their roots, he traces the growth of Black consciousness from the days of slavery to the 1990s, noting especially the contributions of King and Malcolm X. Ellis examines elements of Black culture and offers a distinct perspective on how God is active in culture more broadly. Free at Last? concludes with a call for new generations of jazz theologians and cultural prophets to revitalize the African American church and expand its cultural range. The book also includes a helpful glossary of people, events, and terms. Ellis writes, It is my prayer that the principles contained in this book will play a role in building bridges of understanding and facilitating reconciliation where there has been alienation. With a new preface by the author, this groundbreaking book is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection. Continue Reading Free At Last

  • Is Christianity The White Mans Religion


    Among many young people of color, there is a growing wariness about organized religion and Christianity in particular.

    If Christianity is for everyone, why does the Bible seem to endorse slavery? Why do most popular images of Jesus feature a man with white skin and blue eyes? Is evangelical Christianity good news or a tool of white supremacy? As our society increases in ethnic and religious diversity, millennials and the next generation of emerging adults harbor suspicions about traditional Christianity. They’re looking for a faith that makes sense for the world they see around them. They want to know how Christianity relates to race, ethnicity, and societal injustices. Many young adults have rejected the Christian faith based on what they’ve seen in churches, the media, and politics. For them, Christianity looks a lot like a white man’s religion. Antipas L. Harris, a theologian and community activist, believes that biblical Christianity is more affirmative of cultural diversity than many realize. In this sweeping social, theological, and historical examination of Christianity, Harris responds to a list of hot topics from young Americans who struggle with the perception that Christianity is detached from matters of justice, identity, and culture. He also looks at the ways in which American evangelicalism may have incubated the race problem. Is Christianity the White Man’s Religion? affirms that ethnic diversity has played a powerful role in the formation of the Old and New Testaments and that the Bible is a book of justice, promoting equality for all people. Contrary to popular Eurocentric conceptions, biblical Christianity is not just for white Westerners. It’s good news for all of us. Continue Reading Is Christianity The White Mans Religion

  • Stay Salt : The World Has Changed – Our Message Must Not


    Helps Christians to share their faith in today’s world confidently and effectively.

    The world has changed in so many ways, and many of us no longer feel confident when it comes to evangelism, especially with the rise of hostility towards Christian points of view. Keeping quiet is becoming our default position. Yet the world has not changed in one way-it still needs Jesus.

    Renowned evangelist Becky Pippert draws on decades of conversations about Christianity around the world to call and equip ordinary Christians to share Jesus through their ordinary day-to-day conversations. She shows that by leaning on our extraordinary God, such conversations can, and often do, have extraordinary results. They will transform hearts, transform society, and transform the world!

    Weaving Bible teaching with compelling stories, ‘Stay Salt’ is the next-generation ‘Out of the Saltshaker’ for this new era. It will give readers the confidence to share Jesus like Jesus-relevantly, thoughtfully, and effectively.

    Contains discussion questions for small groups at the end of each chapter. Continue Reading Stay Salt : The World Has Changed – Our Message Must Not

  • God Trump And COVID 19


    From the best-selling author of God and Donald Trump, which was brandished by the president at the World Economic Forum in Davos

    How the Pandemic Has Affected the World, America, and the 2020 Election

    This book is a timely follow up to God, Trump and the 2020 Election that reveals insider information about China, the virus, and the ever-increasing stakes of the upcoming election. It will answer the question for the Christian believers (and seekers) of where God is in all this? It provides a little known prophecy by the late David Wilkerson about a plague coming that would shut down the government as well as churches and bars, including shaking New York City as it’s never been shaken. Wilkerson said this plague would force believers into radical prayer that will spark an awakening–something echoed by Christian leaders and prophets.

    Just as the economy was booming and Donald Trump was fixing long-term problems and beating back attacks from his opponents, a brand-new virus shakes up everything including the outcome of this election. The author has inside information about what happened in China early in the pandemic and what went wrong. He even documents how Donald Trump has led the nation in this time of crisis.

    In 2016, God raised up Donald Trump to lead America at a pivotal time. Evangelicals who recognized this backed him more than any other presidential candidate in history. Heading into Election Day 2020, the stakes are even higher, especially with the uncertainty and upheaval caused by COVID-19. This book is really part two of God, Trump and the 2020 Election which details the fight for the soul of America. Strang believes readers need both books to understand and explain what’s at stake. With the shutdown caused by the pandemic, serious anti-Christian trends surfaced, such as some states closing non-essential churches but allowing liquor stores to provide curbside service. Or ceasing all elective surgeries except abortion, which is the taking of a life while the purpose in shutting down the economy was to save lives from this dreaded virus.

  • Bible And Borders


    With so many people around the globe migrating, how should Christians and the church respond? Leading Latino-American biblical scholar M. Daniel Carroll R. (Rodas) helps readers understand what the Bible says about immigration, offering accessible, nuanced, and sympathetic guidance for the church.

    After two successful editions of Christians at the Border, and having talked and written about immigration over the past decade, Carroll has sharpened his focus and refined his argument to make sure we hear clearly what the Bible says about one of the most pressing issues of our day. He has reworked the biblical material, adding insights and broadening the frame of reference beyond the US. As Carroll explores the surprising amount of material in the Old and New Testaments that deals with migration, he shows how this topic is fundamental to the message of the Bible and how it affects our understanding of God and the mission of the church.

  • Abortion : Christian Compassion, Convictions And Wisdom For Today’s Big Iss


    Our culture is locked in a battle between two opposing worldviews on abortion. How should Christians advise those who are considering, or feeling the pressure to abort their child? How can we help those who are struggling with the emotional and spiritual fallout from abortion? What stance should we take in the public arena, and how should we conduct ourselves in conversations on these subjects?

    In this short book, Lizzie Ling and Vaughan Roberts survey the Christian worldview and help us to think biblically, speak wisely and act compassionately as we engage with the people, the questions and the heartache surrounding abortion, in a society with very different values.

  • Finding Jesus At The Border


    Immigration is an issue of major concern within the Christian community. As Christians, how should we respond to the current crisis?

    Interweaving biblical narratives of border-crossing and recent stories of immigrants at the US-Mexico border, this accessibly written book invites Christians to reconsider the plight of their neighbors and respond with compassion to the present immigration crisis. Julia Lambert Fogg, a pastor and New Testament scholar who is actively serving immigrant families in Southern California, interprets well-known biblical stories in a fresh way and puts a human face on the immigration debate.

    Fogg argues that Christians must step out of their comfort zones and learn to cross social, ethnic, and religious borders–just as Jesus did–to become the body of Christ in the world. She encourages readers to welcome Christ by embracing DREAMers, the undocumented, asylum seekers, and immigrants, and she inspires Christians to advocate for immigrant justice in their communities.

  • Myth Of The American Dream


    Affluence, autonomy, safety, and power.

    These are the central values of the American dream. But are they actually compatible with Jesus’ command to love our neighbor as ourselves? In essays grouped around these four values, D. L. Mayfield asks us to pay attention to the ways they shape our own choices, and the ways those choices affect our neighbors. Where did these values come from? How have they failed those on the edges of our society? And how can we disentangle ourselves from our culture’s headlong pursuit of these values and live faithful lives of service to God and our neighbors? Continue Reading Myth Of The American Dream

  • How Do You Kill 11 Million People (Expanded)


    Become an informed, passionate citizen who demands honesty and integrity from our leaders or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy.

    In this updated and expanded New York Times bestselling nonpartisan book, Andy Andrews urges you to believe that seeking and discerning the truth really, really matters and that believing lies is the most dangerous thing you can do. You’ll be challenged to become a more careful student of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events and decisions that illuminate choices you face now.

    By considering how the Nazi German regime was able to carry out over eleven million institutional killings between 1933 and 1945, Andrews advocates for an informed population that demands honesty and integrity from its leaders and from each other. He includes several key documents written by our Founding Fathers as examples of America’s core principles that present and future leadership should live up to and embrace.

    We can no longer measure a leader’s worth by the yardsticks provided by the left or the right. Instead, we must use an unchanging standard: the pure, unvarnished truth. Continue Reading How Do You Kill 11 Million People (Expanded)

  • Multicultural Church : Embracing Unity And Restoration


    Despite the progress our country has made in Civil Rights over the past century, Sunday morning is still one of the most segregated times in America. It seems like the only people striving to lead in the area of racial reconciliation are politicians, activists, and celebrities. Pastor Dan Willis wants to know… Where is the church? What can the people of God do to become leaders again and not just be Johnny-come-lately followers? The art of bringing harmony to the masses lies in the love all should see in the church of God. If the church is to make a difference and return to relevance in this world, the only option is multicultural ministry. If leaders are not prepared to minister to this growing culture, then American Christianity is in danger of becoming nonessential to the body of believers. For years, Dan Willis has led a growing, multicuItural Christian community in the suburbs of Chicago. In The Multicultural Church, Dan shares what he has learned, the mistakes he has made, and what can be done to successfully minister to a diverse culture.

  • 5 Loaves Two Fish 12 Volunteers


    Sixty-two percent of food pantries and meal programs in the United States are faith-based. Most of these ministries are transactional; people needing food interact with church volunteers to earn access to direct service.

    Elizabeth Magill advocates relational ministry as a better model for food ministry. People donating food or money eat with the people who need food and get to know them as they serve alongside them. Those needing food share all aspects of the ministry, including planning, setting up, leading, serving, and cleaning. As volunteers become better acquainted, they can form deep, meaningful relationships, creating a new way to be the church.

    Five Loaves, Two Fish, Twelve Volunteers tells the stories of 8 churches that share food ministry with people who need their services. Full of practical advice, this book emphasizes that building relationships and offering radical welcome is more important work for churches than efficiency or order.

  • Snowflake Named Hannah


    When John and Marlene Strege learned they wouldn’t be able to have a child, they were devastated. Then Marlene asked the question that would change their lives: Can frozen embryos be adopted? The answer not only gave them their beloved daughter Hannah, it drew all three into a political spotlight they never expected. Hundreds of thousands of frozen embryos exist, held in stasis because parents using in vitro fertilization have completed their families without them. When scientists discovered a way to extract stem cells from human embryos for disease research and cures, those tiny lives were suddenly at risk. And Hannah, just a few months after this discovery, became the first human face of the growing resistance to this new science. In the first few years of her life, she not only sparked other parents to adopt their own snowflake babies, but she also inspired the first frozen embryo adoption program, featured on Focus on the Family (getting a new godfather in Dr. Dobson), attended her mother’s testimony in Congress, and stood at President Bush’s side as he vetoed stem cell research. This compelling story unfolds at the intersection of faith and family, science and politics. Pro-life Christians, those who have experienced infertility or know those who have, and anyone concerned with where science can lead when moral and ethical concerns are ignored will welcome this book–and the sweet face of the baby who might never have been born.

  • Why Does God Care Who I Sleep With


    Christians are increasingly seen as outdated, restrictive and judgmental when it comes to sex before marriage, cohabitation, homosexuality, gender identity or transgender rights. In fact for many people, this issue is one of the biggest barriers for them considering Christianity.

    Sam Allberry, author of many books including Is God Anti-gay sets out God’s good design for the expression of human sexuality, showing that God himself is love and that only he can satisfy our deepest desires.

    It is a great reminder of the Bible’s positive blueprint for love, sex and marriage and ideal for giving away to people who may see this as a stumbling block for belief. Continue Reading Why Does God Care Who I Sleep With

  • Truth And Hope


    In this varied collection of essays, Walter Brueggemann provides a lens into biblical teachings concerning the present age of fake news, lies, and alternate realities. Compiled and edited by Louis Stulman, professor of religion at the University of Findlay, these essays carry a common theme of truth and hope. As Brueggemann writes in the preface, there is no doubt that the prophetic tradition regularly engages in truth-telling in order to expose social reality as a systemic act of ‘falseness’ that contradicts the purposes of God. The prophetic tradition of Jeremiah, for instance, is preoccupied with truth-telling that exposes ‘falseness.’ The prophet exposes the deceit of dominant culture.

    That same prophetic tradition (like many others) turns eventually to the work of hope-telling. Such hope does not doubt that the faithful God can create futures, a way out of no way. The sequence from truth to hope in the book of Jeremiah is characteristic of the prophetic books of the Old Testament. These several prophetic voices (that gave canonical shape to the prophetic books) knew that this sequence is definingly important. There can be no hope until truth is told. Our temptation, of course, is to do the work of hope without the prior work of truth.

    Readers will find this collection of essays to be theologically rooted in the concept of prophetic tradition as a means of truth-telling. Brueggemann explores that, without God, truth-telling is nothing more than harping, and hope-telling is only wishful thinking. Continue Reading Truth And Hope

  • 3rd Option : Hope For A Racially Divided Nation


    Miles McPherson, founder of The Rock Church in San Diego, presents a discussion about race that we desperately need…a must read (Bishop T.D. Jakes, Senior Pastor, The Potter’s House) and argues that we must learn to see people not by the color of their skin, but as God sees them-humans created in the image of God.

    Pastor Miles McPherson, senior pastor of The Rock Church in San Diego, addresses racial division, a topic many have shied away from, for fear of asking the wrong question or saying the wrong thing. Some are oblivious to the impact racism has, while others pretend it doesn’t exist.

    Even the church has been affected by racial division, with Sunday now being the most segregated day of each week. Christians, who are called to love and honor their neighbors, have fallen into culture’s trap by siding with one group against another: us vs. them. Cops vs. protestors. Blacks vs. whites. Racists vs. the woke. The lure of choosing one option over another threatens God’s plan for unity among His people.

    Instead of going along with the culture, Pastor Miles directs us to choose the Third Option: honoring the priceless value of God’s image in every person we meet. He exposes common misconceptions that keep people from engaging with those of different racial and ethnic backgrounds, and identifies the privileges and pitfalls that we all face.

    The Third Option challenges us to fully embrace God’s creativity and beauty, as expressed in the diversity of His people. By following the steps and praying the prayers outlined in his book, Pastor Miles teaches us how we can all become leaders in unifying our communities, our churches, and the nation.

  • Materiality As Resistance


    What is materiality?

    Jesus practiced materiality when he healed the bodies of the sick, proclaimed Jubilee to the poor, and fed the five thousand. He practiced materiality over materialism. In Materiality as Resistance, Walter Brueggemann defines materiality as the use of the material aspects of the Christian faith, as opposed to materialism, which places possessions and physical comfort over spiritual values. In this concise volume, Brueggemann lays out how we as Christians may reengage our materiality for the common good. How does materiality inform our faith when it comes to food, money, the body, time, and place? How does it force us to act? Likewise, how is the church obligated to use its time, money, abundance of food, the care and use of our bodies, observance of Sabbath, and stewardship of our world and those with whom we share it? With a foreword from Jim Wallis, Materiality as Resistance serves as a manifesto of Walter Brueggemann’s most important work and as an engaging call to action. It is suited for group or individual study. Continue Reading Materiality As Resistance

  • Be True To Yourself


    Our culture tells us that the way to be happy is to be true to yourself. It’s posted on social media, promoted in adverts, taught in schools and, even, expressed in churches. But what does that mean, and does it actually work?

    Matt Fuller explores how true happiness, wholeness and freedom can be found in embracing who God has created us to be; allowing ourselves to be shaped by who the Bible says we are, rather than our own fluctuating feelings, or the voices around us. In the process, this book draws on a broad range of fascinating research and examples to give us a fresh biblical take on some of today’s biggest hot-button issues.

    By cutting through the confusion and showing us something better, this is a book to help every Christian live with confidence in today’s culture. Continue Reading Be True To Yourself

  • God Trump And The 2020 Election


    From the best-selling author of God and Donald Trump, which was brandished by the president at the World Economic Forum in Davos

    Christians must support Trump because he is holding back the Left from crushing rights for all Americans, including Christians.

    This book will help you understand how God has used and will continue to use Donald Trump to make a difference for America.

    In 2016 we saw God raise up Donald Trump to lead America at a pivotal time. Evangelicals who recognized this backed him more than any presidential candidate in history. Heading into 2020, the stakes in his reelection are even higher. This election, nine months after the book releases, is a new fight and a new cause. Stephen E. Strang makes the case that God wants America to be great because God has raised up America, beginning with our Founding Fathers, to be a beacon of light and hope for the world. We’ve been the nation with religious liberty that has supported those who have spread the gospel around the world.

    In this book Strang looks at the election, Trump, and America from God’s perspective and helps Christians (and others) see God’s hand at work. This book is as much about God and His purposes as about Donald Trump. But it is also an articulate, impassioned apologetic about why all Christians must support this imperfect man because he has God’s blessing and because the destiny of America is riding on his reelection.

    God, Trump, and the 2020 Election is an inside look into how spiritual warfare is shaping the presidential race, which is an important subject for Bible-believing Christians. The satanic schemes are so brazen on key issues that diagramming what’s at stake is a necessary undertaking. Strang believes that the intersection of faith and politics from a smart, supernatural perspective will be a fascinating read. Continue Reading God Trump And The 2020 Election

  • Our Bodies Tell Gods Story


    In response to a world awash in sexual chaos and gender confusion, this book offers a bold and thoroughly biblical look at the meaning of the body, sex, gender, and marriage.

    Bestselling author, cultural commentator, and popular theologian Christopher West is one of the world’s most recognized teachers of John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. He specializes in making this teaching accessible to all Christians, with particular attention to evangelicals. As West explains, from beginning to end the Bible tells a story of marriage. It begins with the marriage of man and woman in an earthly paradise and ends with the marriage of Christ and the church in an eternal paradise.

    In our post-sexual-revolution world, we need to remember that our bodies tell a divine story and proclaim the gospel itself. As male and female and in the call to become one flesh, our bodies reveal a great mystery that mirrors Christ’s love for the church (Eph. 5:31-32). This book provides a redemptive rather than repressive approach to sexual purity, explores the true meaning of sex and marriage, and offers a compelling vision of what it means to be created male and female. Foreword by Eric Metaxas. Continue Reading Our Bodies Tell Gods Story

  • Color Of Compromise


    An acclaimed, timely narrative of how people of faith have historically–up to the present day–worked against racial justice. And a call for urgent action by all Christians today in response.

    The Color of Compromise is both enlightening and compelling, telling a history we either ignore or just don’t know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. You will be guided in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church.

    The Color of Compromise
    *Takes you on a historical, sociological, and religious journey: from America’s early colonial days through slavery and the Civil War
    *Covers the tragedy of Jim Crow laws, the victories of the Civil Rights era, and the strides of today’s Black Lives Matter movement
    *Reveals the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about meaningful integration
    *Charts a path forward to replace established patterns and systems of complicity with bold, courageous, immediate action
    *Is a perfect book for pastors and other faith leaders, students, non-students, book clubs, small group studies, history lovers, and all lifelong learners

    The Color of Compromise is not a call to shame or a platform to blame white evangelical Christians. It is a call from a place of love and desire to fight for a more racially unified church that no longer compromises what the Bible teaches about human dignity and equality. A call that challenges black and white Christians alike to standup now and begin implementing the concrete ways Tisby outlines, all for a more equitable and inclusive environment among God’s people. Starting today. Continue Reading Color Of Compromise

  • 10 Commandments Of Progressive Christianity


    A cautionary look at ten dangerously appealing half-truths.

    In 1923, J. Gresham Machen, then a professor at Princeton Seminary, wrote his classic text, Christianity and Liberalism. The book was a response to the rise of liberalism in the mainline denominations of his own day. Machen argued that the liberal understanding of Christianity was, in fact, not just a variant version of the faith, nor did it represent simply a different denominational perspective, but was an entirely different religion. Put simply, liberal Christianity is not Christianity.

    What is remarkable about Machen’s book is how prescient it was. His description of liberal Christianity–a moralistic, therapeutic version of the faith that values questions over answers and being good over being right–is still around today in basically the same form. For this reason alone the book should be required reading, certainly for all seminary students, pastors, and Christian leaders.

    Although its modern advocates present liberal Christianity as something new and revolutionary, it is nothing of the sort. It may have new names (e.g., emerging or progressive Christianity), but it is simply a rehash of the same well-worn system that has been around for generations.

    The abiding presence of liberal Christianity struck me not long ago when I came across a daily devotional from Richard Rohr that listed ten principles he thinks modern Christianity needs to embody. These ten principles are actually drawn from Philip Gulley’s book, If the Church Were Christian: Rediscovering the Values of Jesus. In that devotional series, ironically titled Returning to Essentials, Rohr sets forth the ten principles as a kind of confessional statement of modern liberalism (while at the same time pretending to deplore confessional statements). They are, in effect, a Ten Commandments for progressive Christianity.

    Indeed, these ten sound like they were gathered not so much on the mountaintop as in the university classroom. They are less about God revealing his desires and more about man expressing his own–less Moses, more Oprah.

    But take note: each of these commandments is partially true. Indeed, that is what makes this list, and progressive Christianity as a whole, so challenging. It is a master class in half-truths that sound appealing on the surface until you dig down deeper and really explore their foundations and implications. Benjamin Franklin was right when he quipped, Half the truth is often a Continue Reading 10 Commandments Of Progressive Christianity

  • Rest For The Justice Seeking Soul


    Susan K. Williams Smith is a minister and activist who has been on the front lines of social and racial justice for many years. As she has marched shoulder-to-shoulder to resist systematic oppression, she has heard the same question over and over: How are we going to get through this? Rest for the Justice-Seeking Soul was birthed out of those cries.

    Here is a soul-care manual for social justice-seeking believers who stand in constant vigilance against all forms of racial, class, and gender oppression. The fight for justice and equality is an exhausting daily grind–and the work is never over. That’s why it is incumbent upon all who speak and advocate for the less fortunate to practice self-care. You can’t fight when your tank is empty.

    In response to the many calls and emails she has received from friends, clergy, and strangers who are in utter despair and even deep depression, she has created ninety daily devotions to provide a daily spoonful of hope and encouragement, a healing balm to strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees (Hebrews 12:12). Lift your gaze upward toward a better future by allowing God to restore harmony and focus in your soul and justice in your community. Our God is bigger than whoever is oppressing you. As the old hymn states, Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. Continue Reading Rest For The Justice Seeking Soul

  • No Podemos Callar


    Hace veinte aos, ninguna nacion en la tierra tenia un matrimonio legal entre personas del mismo sexo.

  • Intensional : Kingdom Ethnicity In A Divided World


    When it comes to the ethnic divisions in our world, we speak often of seeking racial reconciliation. But at no point have all the different ethnicities on Earth been reconciled. Animosity, distrust, and hostility among people from various ethnicities have always existed in American history. Even in the church, we have often built walls-ethnic segregation, classism, sexism, and theological tribes-to divide God’s people from each other.

    But it shouldn’t be this way. God’s people are the only people on earth who have experienced true reconciliation. Who better to enter into the ethnic tensions of our day with the hope of Jesus?

    In Intensional, pastor D. A. Horton steps into the tension to offer vision and practical guidance for Christians longing to embrace our Kingdom ethnicity, combating the hatred in our culture with the hope of Jesus Christ. Continue Reading Intensional : Kingdom Ethnicity In A Divided World

  • Free To Believe


    A leading religious freedom attorney, the veteran of several Supreme Court battles, helps people of faith understand religious liberty in our rapidly changing culture–why it matters, how it is threatened, and how to respond with confidence and grace.

    Many Christians and others are concerned about rising threats to religious freedom. They feel the culture changing around them, and they fear that their beliefs will soon be marginalized as a form of bigotry. Others, younger Christians in particular, are tired of the culture wars, and they wonder whether courtroom battles are truly worthwhile, or even in line with the teachings of Jesus. Luke Goodrich offers a reasoned, balanced, gospel-centered approach to religious freedom. He applies biblical understanding to a number of the most hot-button cultural issues of our day. He also offers practical steps Christians can take to respond to religious freedom conflicts in an informed, responsible, and graceful way. Continue Reading Free To Believe

  • Conservative : Knowing What To Keep


    A Fidelis Books Title

    America is on the road to tyranny and socialism, and only a national return to transcendent values and proven traditions will bring us back to freedom and prosperity.

    Americans hunger for something real to believe in–leaders and ideas that actually work to make their lives better. The current political system is not satisfying this hunger and people are rebelling. Polished, experienced candidates in both the Democrat and Republican parties are facing stiff competition from radical, but more authentic, candidates.

    Jim DeMint and Rachel Bovard make a rock-solid case for why the principles that made America the freest, most prosperous nation in world history must be reclaimed to prevent our demise. Conservative is the simple truth on which this book is built; we all tend to keep what works. This exploration delivers the goods on what has and will work for America.

  • What They Meant For Evil


    Many stories have been told about the famous Lost Boys, but now for the first time, a Lost Girl shares her hauntingly beautiful and inspiring story.

    One of the first unaccompanied refugee children to enter the United States in 2000, after South Sudan’s second civil war took the lives of most of her family, Rebecca’s story begins in the late 1980s when, at the age of four, her village was attacked and she had to escape. WHAT THEY MEANT FOR EVIL is the account of that unimaginable journey. With the candor and purity of a child, Rebecca recalls how she endured fleeing from gunfire, suffering through hunger and strength-sapping illnesses, dodging life-threatening predators-lions, snakes, crocodiles, and soldiers alike-that dogged her footsteps, and grappling with a war that stole her childhood.

    Her story is a lyrical, captivating portrait of a child hurled into wartime, and how through divine intervention, she came to America and found a new life full of joy, hope, and redemption. Continue Reading What They Meant For Evil

  • I See You


    We don’t care about what we don’t see.

    Countless people are invisible to us. We overlook the poor and homeless, partly because we don’t share much space with them. More seriously, we often choose not to see the realities around us. We hold misconceptions about who is deserving or not, or make false assumptions about people’s poverty being their own fault. Terence Lester calls us to see the invisible people around us. His personal encounters and real-life stories challenge Christians to become more informed about poverty and homelessness, and to see the poor as Jesus does. When we see people through God’s eyes and hear their stories, we restore their dignity and help them flourish. And when we recognize our own inner spiritual poverty, we have greater empathy for others, no matter their circumstances. Let love open your eyes. Discover how seeing leads us to act with compassion and justice–as God intends. Continue Reading I See You

  • I Was Hungry


    Hunger is one of the most significant issues in America. One in eight Americans struggles with hunger, and more than 13 million children live in food insecure homes. As Christians we are called to address the suffering of the hungry and poor: For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat . . . (Matthew 25:35). However, the problems of hunger and poverty are too large and too complex for any one of us to resolve individually.

    I Was Hungry offers not only an assessment of the current crisis but also a strategy for addressing it. Jeremy Everett, a noted advocate for the hungry and poor, calls Christians to work intentionally across ideological divides to build trust with one another and impoverished communities and effectively end America’s hunger crisis. Everett, appointed by US Congress to the National Commission on Hunger, founded and directs the Texas Hunger Initiative, a successful ministry that is helping to eradicate hunger in Texas and around the globe. Everett details the organization’s history and tells stories of its work with communities from West Texas to Washington, DC, helping Christians of all political persuasions understand how they can work together to truly make a difference.

  • Protecting Your Child From Predators


    Even good parents often underestimate the dangers their children face. Research indicates that one in four females and one in six males are sexually abused before age 18. In most cases, the enemy is not a faceless stranger; it’s someone you know and trust–a neighbor, a coach, or even a family member.This book provides practical steps to ensure you’re doing all you can to reduce the risks of abuse. But since you cannot be with your children 24/7, it goes beyond what you can do as a parent to teach you how to increase your child’s own awareness and strategies in the face of potential dangers–without making them fearful.Dr. Robinson, whose decades-long practice focuses on abused and endangered children, calls on her own case studies to show age-appropriate conversation starters for parents, teaching them how to ask the right questions and provide the right boundaries.This book will help you move from fear to confidence on this heavy topic that is just too important to ignore.

  • We Too : How The Church Can Respond Redemptively To The Sexual Abuse Crisis


    Crushed by sexual abuse?

    The truth: We heal better together.

    The sexual abuse crisis has permeated every corner of our world, including the church. How we respond to both its menacing proliferation and the shattered hearts of survivors is vital. God beckons us to be good Samaritans to those facing trauma and sexual brokenness in the aftermath of abuse, to provide safe places to heal in community.

    In these pages, author and advocate Mary DeMuth encourages the church she loves to rise up and face the very real evil of sexual abuse and harassment–with candor and empathy. Based on current research and survivors’ stories, along with a fierce fidelity to Scripture, DeMuth paints a realistic picture of the church’s historical and present response to sexual violence, and she provides a framework of revival and surprising hope for the future.

    You will learn:
    *What the Bible says to the sexually exploited.
    *What harms and what empowers those who have been traumatized by abuse.
    *How Jesus provides us a relational framework that welcomes victims, decries secrecy, forsakes reputation management, and deals justly with perpetrators.
    *How to determine if your church is moving toward becoming a truly safe place.

    In the throes of the #MeToo movement, the church now stands at a crucial crossroads. By advocating for a culture of listening and justice, Mary encourages the church to cross over to the places where people are hurting, to bind up their wounds, and to truly embrace the long-term reality of sexual abuse’s aftereffects. In the circle of that kind of empathetic #WeToo community, the church will become the place it’s meant to be–a place of justice and healing for everyone.

  • Covered Glory : The Face Of Honor And Shame In The Muslim World


    Sharing Our Stories Heals Our Shame

    How often do you believe the lie that you are not valued? You are rejected? You are bad? Now, imagine living in a culture where those lies don’t simply crush your self-esteem, they can cause you to be cast out of your family and destroy your life entirely.

    In Covered Glory, you will meet Muslim women living in a culture with an honor-shame worldview that perpetuates their shame. As you discover how these women find freedom when they uncover their true identity, you will find that shame affects each one of us. Learn that while…
    *shame tells us we are unworthy, truth tells us we were made to be loved
    *shame tells us we are nobody, Jesus tells us, You are somebody to me
    *shame tells us we are broken, God’s Word tells us healing comes from him

    When you are able to look past your differences and realize your challenges and dreams are the same as your Muslim neighbor–and so is your need for a Savior–you will be able to share the love of Jesus more openly and authentically than ever before.

  • If Jesus Is Lord


    What does Jesus have to say about violence, just war, and killing? Does Jesus ever want his disciples to kill in order to resist evil and promote peace and justice?This book by noted theologian and bestselling author Ronald J. Sider provides a career capstone statement on biblical peacemaking. Sider makes a strong case for the view that Jesus calls his disciples to love, and never kill, their enemies. He explains that there are never only two options: to kill or to do nothing in the face of tyranny and brutality. There is always a third possibility: vigorous, nonviolent resistance. If we believe that Jesus is Lord, then we disobey him when we set aside what he taught about killing and ignore his command to love our enemies.

    This thorough, comprehensive treatment of a topic of perennial concern vigorously engages with the just war tradition and issues a challenge to all Christians, especially evangelicals, to engage in biblical peacemaking. Continue Reading If Jesus Is Lord

  • Advocates : The Narrow Path To Racial Reconciliation


    A slave runs away from his master. A mutual friend steps in to mediate between the two of them. Can there be healing in such a scarred relationship? In the face of such a daunting breach, is reconciliation (not to what was, but to what God designed) even possible?

    This is the situation faced in the book of Philemon. From this short New Testament letter, pastor and author Dhati Lewis ( Among Wolves) unpacks key principles that Paul applied to being an advocate in the midst of division.

    The divisions of our day don’t look the same as Paul’s, but the principles are timeless. In 2 Corinthians 5, God commissioned us to be his ambassadors and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. Whether we’re engaging in issues of politics, ethnicity, or religious beliefs, our heart posture should be one of an advocate set on reconciliation. The problem is, too many of us approach difficult conversations with the heart of an aggravator. Aggravators sometimes look like they are pursuing good things, but their heart is not toward reconciliation. Any motive less than reconciliation falls short of the desires of God’s heart.

    We need godly advocates in every sphere of life. This book will specifically apply these principles to issues of ethnic division. Are you willing to call any division caused by discrimination, prejudice, or racism a sin? Do you want to grow in your ability to navigate tense and emotional conversations about ethnic divisions? Are you ready to become an advocate? Continue Reading Advocates : The Narrow Path To Racial Reconciliation

    Additional Info
    What does it mean to read with Eastern eyes? According to Jackson Wu, an Eastern perspective is in many ways culturally closer to that of the first-century world. Cultural values of honor and shame, social status, tradition, hierarchy, and relationships are similar in both East Asia and the New Testament.

    As readers, we bring our cultural understanding and values to the text. Our biases and background influence what we observe-and what we overlook. Wu aims to help us develop our Eastern lenses in order to interpret Scripture well and gain insights we might have missed.

    In Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes, Wu demonstrates how an Eastern perspective sheds light on Paul’s most complex letter. When read this way, we see how honor and shame shape so much of Paul’s message and mission. Continue Reading Reading Romans With Eastern Eyes

  • Love Thy Body


    Why the call to Love Thy Body? To counter a pervasive hostility toward the body and biology that drives today’s headline stories:
    Transgenderism: Activists detach gender from biology. Kids down to kindergarten are being taught their bodies are irrelevant. Is this affirming–or does it demean the body?
    Homosexuality: Advocates disconnect sexuality from biological identity. Is this liberating–or does it denigrate biology?
    Abortion: Supporters deny the fetus is a person, though it is biologically human. Does this mean equality for women–or does it threaten the intrinsic value of all humans?
    Euthanasia: Those who lack certain cognitive abilities are said to be no longer persons. Is this compassionate–or does it ultimately put everyone at risk?
    In Love Thy Body, bestselling author Nancy Pearcey goes beyond politically correct slogans with a riveting expose of the dehumanizing worldview that shapes current watershed moral issues.
    Pearcey then turns the tables on media boilerplate that misportrays Christianity as harsh or hateful. A former agnostic, she makes a surprising and persuasive case that Christianity is holistic, sustaining the dignity of the body and biology.
    Throughout she entrances readers with compassionate stories of people wrestling with hard questions in their own lives–their pain, their struggles, their triumphs. Continue Reading Love Thy Body

  • Costly Obedience : What We Can Learn From The Celibate Gay Christian Commun


    Though we often hear about the gay problem today, there is an even deeper problem in the church today–one that we often overlook. The call to follow Christ is a call to costly obedience for all, not just for gay Christians. Far too often, the church has elevated homosexuality above other sins and required a costly obedience from gays that it is unwilling to demand of others. And yet, the answer is not to weaken the demands of obedience. Instead, gay Christians who make the difficult choice to align their lives with the biblical view of sexuality are a gift to the church, reminding all of us that spiritual growth and maturity is costly. There is a price to pay in following Christ and devoting our lives to the call of the gospel, and it is one that we all must pay–gay and straight Christians alike.

    Through the stories and struggles of gay Christians who are reorienting their lives around the costly obedience required to follow Christ, Mark Yarhouse and Olya Zaporozhets call the church to reorient as well, leaving behind the casual morality that is widespread today to pursue the path of radical discipleship. Unlike any other book on homosexuality and the church, this is a call to examine your life and consider what God is asking you to lay down to take up your cross and follow him.

    In Closing the Floodgates, psychotherapist Dr. Ann Gillies has written a blockbuster of a book exposing the biased, unscientific, and corrupt methods used to promote the sexual revolution of the last sixty years. In her powerful and compelling analysis, she shows how the truth of scientific fact has been overturned in the interest of pleasure and personal feelings, and how a determined minority is using social engineering to reconstruct our social and moral worlds by redefining gender, sexuality and the family. She draws an alarming picture of the consequences: identity confusion among the youth; sexual abuse and victimization of children; soaring rates of suicide and sexually transmitted diseases; the embedding of false, unhealthy, and immoral teaching in the school curriculum; and the loss of freedom of speech and parental rights. While a few readers may find the level of detailed academic content challenging at times, Dr. Gillies is able to make professional findings understandable and real for the average person. For all the necessary research and statistical reporting, this is a gut-level book. In a time of culture wars, when the truth about gender and sexuality is under attack, this book sets the record straight. It issues a rallying cry to parents and others concerned for the future of the family and western society to be informed and take action before it is too late.

  • Between Life And Death


    Less than a century ago, most people died at home. Today, 80 percent of Americans die in institutions such as hospitals or nursing homes. The dying process-once a visible reality of life-now hides behind a complex web of medical technology, and few Americans discuss end-of-life care before it becomes urgent. Faced with crucial decisions, Christian patients and loved ones struggle to understand how their faith should inform their treatment. Covering topics such as ventilators, dialysis, artificially administered nutrition, physician-assisted suicide, hospice, and more, this book offers a distinctly Christian guide to end-of-life care, simplifying common medical jargon and exploring biblical principles that individuals and families need in order to navigate the transition from this life to the next.

  • What Is The Relationship Between Church And State


    In the United States, people often hear the phrase separation of church and state. Many assume this means the government should rule without taking God into account. But that idea is a distortion of the truth.

    In this booklet, Dr. R.C. Sproul explains where the government ultimately gets its authority: from God Himself. God ordained the state to protect life and promote justice. Christians must respect and honor their earthly authorities but at the same time remember that God is the highest authority of all.

    The Crucial Questions booklet series by Dr. R.C. Sproul offers succinct answers to important questions often asked by Christians and thoughtful inquirers. Continue Reading What Is The Relationship Between Church And State

  • Beating Guns : Hope For People Who Are Weary Of Violence


    Parkland. Las Vegas. Dallas. Orlando. San Bernardino. Paris. Charleston. Sutherland Springs. Newtown. These cities are now known for the people who were shot and killed in them. With less than 5% of the world’s population, the people of the US own nearly half the world’s guns. America also holds the record for the most gun deaths–homicide, suicide, and accidental gun deaths–at around 90 a day and about 33,000 per year. Some people say it’s a heart problem. Others say it’s a gun problem. The authors of Beating Guns believe it’s both.

    This book is for people who believe the world doesn’t have to be this way. Inspired by the prophetic image of beating swords into plows, Beating Guns provides a provocative look at gun violence in America and offers a clarion call to change our hearts regarding one of the most significant moral issues of our time. Bestselling author, speaker, and activist Shane Claiborne and Michael Martin show why Christians should be concerned about gun violence and how they can be part of the solution. The authors transcend stale rhetoric and old debates about gun control to offer a creative and productive response. Full-color images show how guns are being turned into tools and musical instruments across the nation. Charts, tables, and facts convey the mind-boggling realities of gun violence in America, but as the authors make clear, there is a story behind every statistic. Beating Guns allows victims and perpetrators of gun violence to tell their own compelling stories, offering hope for change and helping us reimagine the world as one that turns from death to life, where swords become plows and guns are turned into garden tools.

  • Black And White


    Most of us don’t need to make speeches. We need to make friends. This is the core message of Black and White: racism can be disrupted by relationships. If you will risk forging friendships with those who do not look like you, it will change the way you see the world, and that could change the world. The authors, Teesha Hadra, a young African American woman, and John Hambrick, a 60-year old white man, bring a confident and redemptive tone to this hope because that is exactly what they’ve experienced. Black and White leverages their story, surrounding it with other’s stories, practical advice, and exploration of the systems of racism to motivate you to consider your own role in change.

  • 3rd Jihad : Overcoming Radical Islams Plan For The West


    Radical Islam has been waging war against our global civilization throughout history-and now, it’s closer than ever to American soil. Dr. Michael Youssef, a Coptic Christian who was born in Egypt and now leads a megachurch in America, knows from firsthand experience that radical Islamists have goals that many American Christians believe are unthinkable. In this book, he warns Western Christians that it doesn’t help to ignore what’s going on. There’s a third jihad underway, and its goal is to take over the West.

    The Third Jihad is a call for Christians to defend their families, protect their nation, and boldly share the good news of Jesus with their communities-especially their Muslim neighbors.

    Packed with surprising insights from history, compelling and dramatic stories, and a practical agenda that one person-or one church-can immediately put into practice to make a difference in the world. Rich in encouraging biblical principles and prophetic insights, The Third Jihad leads the reader to an empowering conclusion in our troubling (and even frightening) times.

    Michael Youssef’s insights will inspire Christians to take their faith seriously, share their faith freely, and to truly be salt and light in a world of increasing darkness and decay. Continue Reading 3rd Jihad : Overcoming Radical Islams Plan For The West

  • Vulnerable : Rethinking Human Trafficking


    There are more than 40 million enslaved people in the world today.

    This is overwhelming. A number so large leaves us asking, What could I even do to help?

    In his book Vulnerable: Rethinking Human Trafficking, Raleigh Sadler, president and founder of Let My People Go, makes the case that anyone can fight human trafficking by focusing on those who are most often targeted. This book invites the reader to understand their role in the problem of human trafficking, but more importantly, their role in the solution.

    Human trafficking can be defined as the exploitation of vulnerability for commercial gain. Using the power of story and candid interviews, Sadler seeks to discover how ordinary people can fight human trafficking by recognizing vulnerability and entering in.

    As vulnerable people, we can empower other vulnerable people, because Christ was made vulnerable for us. Continue Reading Vulnerable : Rethinking Human Trafficking

  • Theft Of Americas Soul


    Star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson exposes the ten lies the devil has used to destroy America’s soul and offers ten counter-truths to put God back into culture and turn the country around.

    In April of 1966, Time magazine raised a ruckus when the cover of the magazine featured in red block-letters a now-infamous question: Is God Dead?

    It marked a turning point for the country, revealing the cultural acceptability of questioning whether God was active and alive in our world. Circumstances have not improved. In his new book, Phil Robertson exposes the 10 essential deceptions and schemes the devil has used in an attempt to steal, kill, and destroy America’s soul. With personal narrative and folksy wisdom, Phil shares the ten counter-truths that, if believed and acted on, would put God back into the culture and might just turn our country around. His most prophetic work to date, the new book is deeply rooted in Phil’s desire that all might come into the life-giving, peace-filling, wholly-transforming experience of God’s great love.

  • And Social Justice For All


    Equips parents to inspire kids to take on social injustice–at any age

    With the constant barrage of difficult stories through news and social media, today’s kids are increasingly aware of the real problems real people confront every day. And they’re quicker than ever to come to parents and other trusted adults to ask how they can help–or why they’re not already doing so. And Social Justice for All equips Christian families to tackle social justice issues together. It inspires them to bring light and love to a dark and scary world.

    Educator and mom Lisa Van Engen creates innovative resources to engage kids in understanding and responding to fourteen justice issues such as clean water, creation care, immigration and refugees, hunger, race, and poverty. After placing each issue in kid-friendly context, she offers interactive features:
    *High-interest conversation starters for each age group to challenge thinking and assumptions
    *A family devotional to anchor each social justice issue in God’s Word
    *Engaging, age-tiered activities for reading, playing, observing, creating, connecting, and experimenting in God’s world
    *Tips and internet links to extend awareness and invest resources in social justice

    Throughout each chapter, children speak their own thoughts about injustice and what they think God is calling them to do.

    By looking at both the roots of injustice and what Christians can do right now to help, And Social Justice for All empowers both adults and children to encounter a broken world with insight and empathy. Simple yet powerful, it lights the path for families to make a real, God-directed difference together. Continue Reading And Social Justice For All

  • Color Of Life


    Cara Meredith grew up in a colorless world. From childhood, she didn’t think issues of race had anything to do with her. A colorblind rhetoric had been stamped across her education, world view, and Christian theology.

    Then as an adult, Cara’s life took on new, colorful hues. She realized that her generation, seeking to move beyond ancestral racism, had swung so far that they tried to act as if they didn’t see race at all. But that picture neglected the unique cultural identity God gives each person. When Cara met and fell in love with the son of black icon, James Meredith, she began to listen to the stories and experiences of others in a new way, taking note of the cultures, sounds and shades of life already present around her. After she married and their little family grew to include two mixed-race sons, Cara knew she would never see the world through a colorless lens again.

    A writer and speaker in an interracial marriage and mixed-race family, Cara finds herself more and more in the middle of discussions about racial justice. In The Color of Life, she asks how do we navigate ongoing and desperately-needed conversations about race? How do we teach our children a theology of reconciliation and love? And what does it mean to live a life that makes space for seeing the imago Dei in everyone? Cara’s illuminating memoir paints a beautiful path from white privilege toward racial healing, from ignorance toward seeing the image of God in everyone she meets. Continue Reading Color Of Life

  • Reaching Your Addicted Loved One

  • Jesus Economy : A Biblical View Of Poverty The Currency Of Love And A Patte


    You know people around the world are struggling. A homeless man holds a sign that reads, Anything helps. A poor child lives in a slum swarming with flies. A refugee mother is on the brink of starvation. You ask yourself, But what can I do about such big problems?

    You’re looking for long-term solutions. John D. Barry shares incredible, and often shocking, stories about working among the impoverished and unchurched in the U.S. and abroad. And since Barry is a Bible scholar, Jesus’ Economy is also deeply rooted in the Scriptures. It is a personal, sometimes funny, often heartbreaking account that presents a revolutionary pattern for lasting change.

    Jesus’ Economy is based on self-sacrifice. His currency is love. It’s called Jesus’ Economy because it’s about creating a spiritual and physical economy for those who need it most. Here is a thoroughly biblical and compassionate pattern for addressing issues of poverty and offering the hope of the gospel. Jesus’ Economy

    – Shows how you as an individual can best encourage renewal in your community.
    – Demonstrates how your church community or any group can alleviate poverty.
    – Presents a unified plan for creating jobs, spreading the gospel, and meeting basic needs.
    – Focuses on community development and sustainability– lasting change, globally and locally.

    Jesus’ Economy is a call to address our own spiritual poverty–as people who can too easily become distant from Christ–and it is a call to address the physical poverty all around us in a smart and sustainable way. Jesus’ teachings show that with simple, everyday choices, you can make the world a better place and create enduring change. Here’s how to live Jesus’ economy–a currency of love.

  • Trump Aftershock : The Presidents Seismic Impact On Faith And Culture In Am


    The election of Donald J. Trump sent shockwaves around the world. Shock troops were deployed along with the predictable rent-a-mob who stormed the streets of our nation’s cities. Within hours a movement was born. The Trump agenda, promoted daily to millions of voters and adoring fans, was to Make America Great Again. It was an agenda focused on strengthening the economy, restoring the federal courts, addressing the overwhelming surge of illegal immigration, rebuilding the military, and uplifting America’s standing in the world. For the opposition, the objective was to impeach Donald Trump.

    Stephen E. Strang will explore the nature of this dramatic confrontation, covering various topics, including:
    *The reactions of conservative and Christian voters to the Trump agendaInternational reactions to the election
    *The economy, a look at the unprecedented market movements
    *Fake News, the death of journalism, and the media’s war on the president
    *Organizations such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter
    *George Soros: villain number one

    In Aftershock, Strang explores and analyzes Trump’s effect on American culture from a Christian perspective, drawing upon interviews with many of the key players, and offering insightful commentary on what the long-term prospects of the ongoing war of worldviews may portend.

    Wait, Dad. Are we for them or against them?

    Kent Annan was talking with his eight-year-old son about the immigrant and refugee crises around the world. His son’s question, innocent enough in the moment, is writ large across our society today. How we answer it, Annan says, will reveal a lot about what kind of family, community, or country we want to be.

    In You Welcomed Me, Annan explores, in his usual compelling way, how fear and misunderstanding can motivate our responses to people in need. Instead, he invites us into stories of welcome-stories that lead us to see the current refugee and immigrant crisis in a new light. He also lays out simple practices for a way forward: confessing what separates us, listening well, and partnering with, not patronizing, those in need. His stories draw us in, and the practices send us out prepared to cross social and cultural divides.

    In this wise, practical book, Annan invites us to answer his son’s question with confident conviction: We’re for them-and to explore with him the life-giving implications of that answer. Continue Reading You Welcomed Me

  • White Picket Fences


    Privilege. We hear the word, and we flinch. For some, it’s paralyzingly painful to think about. For others, the very thought of it evokes bitter resentment. For all of us, the notion that some people have it inherently better than others, and for entirely arbitrary reasons, seems insurmountable, unresolvable. And yet until we talk about this issue-really get into it-we’ll never fully understand it, never find our way forward through it.

    With honesty, humility, and grace, Amy Julia Becker introduces us to a childhood in a Southern state still finding its footing after the tension of the civil rights movement, and an adulthood in a Northern city whose social inequities have been carefully hidden from view. We’re reminded that the white picket fences that seem so pristine and good and even virtuous can function as a wall, even a prison, that prevents us from knowing and loving our neighbors, and experiencing the world as it truly is and the God who invites us to carry a blessing into it.

  • Insider Outsider : My Journey As A Stranger In White Evangelicalism And My


    God boldly proclaims throughout the book of Acts, There is no ethnic home team when it comes to Christianity. But the minority experience in America today–and throughout history–too often tells a different story.

    When Pastor Bryan Loritts wrote an op-ed piece in Christianity Today about this evangelical gentrification in the American church, he received an overwhelming response of more than one million views and sparked a provocative national conversation. In Insider Outsider, Loritts dives deeper into what it’s like to be a person of color in predominantly white evangelical spaces today and where we go from here. Drawing on insightful snapshots through history, eye-opening personal experiences, and biblical exposition, Loritts awakens both our minds and hearts to the painful reality of racial divides as well as the hope of forgiveness.

    As Loritts writes, It is impossible to do theology devoid of cultural lenses and expressions. Like an American unaware of their own accent, most whites are unaware of the ethnic theological accent they carry. Insider Outsider bears witness to the true stories that often go untold–stories that will startle, enlighten, and herald a brighter way forward for all seeking belonging in the family of God.

    This seminal book on race and the church will help Christians discover how they can learn the art of listening to stories unlike their own, identify the problems and pitfalls that keep Sunday morning the most segregated hour of the week, and participate in an active movement with God toward a holy vision of what Dietrich Bonhoeffer calls life together.

When we drop the act and allow ourselves to be vulnerable by sharing our struggles, not only are we strengthened in our fight against sin, but we experience authentic fellowship and real friendship.

    Catherine Parks empowers women to fight side by side against their sin, and shows how by getting real about our struggles, we can create genuine community in an I’m fine culture.

    Are you tired of reading another news story about Christians acting their worst?

    Today there are too many examples of those claiming to follow Christ being caustic, divisive, and irrational, contributing to dismissals of the Christian faith as hypocritical, self-interested, and politically co-opted. What has happened in our society? It seems one short outrageous video or pithy post can trigger an avalanche of comments on social media.

    Additional Info
    The hour is critical. The American republic is suffering its gravest crisis since the Civil War. Conflicts, hostility, and incivility now threaten to tear the country apart. Competing visions have led to a dangerous moment of cultural self-destruction. This is no longer politics as usual, but an era of political warfare where our enemies are not foreign adversaries, but our fellow citizens.

    Yet the roots of the crisis are deeper than many realize. Os Guinness argues that we face a fundamental crisis of freedom, as America’s genius for freedom has become her Achilles’ heel. Our society’s conflicts are rooted in two rival views of freedom, one embodied in 1776 and the ideals of the American Revolution, and the other in 1789 and the ideals of the French Revolution. Once again America has become a house divided, and Americans must make up their minds as to which freedom to follow. Will the constitutional republic be restored or replaced?

    This grand treatment of history, civics, and ethics in the Jewish and Christian traditions represents Guinness’s definitive exploration of the prospects for human freedom today. He calls for a national conversation on the nature of freedom, and poses key questions for concerned citizens to consider as we face a critical chapter in the American story. He offers readers a checklist by which they can assess the character and consequences of the freedoms they are choosing.

    In the tradition of Alexis de Tocqueville, Guinness provides a visitor’s careful observation of the American experiment. Discover here a stirring vision for faithful citizenship and renewed responsibility, not only for the nation but also for the watching world. Continue Reading Last Call For Liberty

    In Gay Girl, Good God, author Jackie Hill Perry shares her own story, offering practical tools that helped her in the process of finding wholeness. Jackie grew up fatherless and experienced gender confusion. She abused marijuana, loved pornography, and embraced both masculinity and homosexuality with every fiber of her being. She knew that Christians had a lot to say about all of the above. But was she supposed to change herself? How was she supposed to stop loving women, when homosexuality felt more natural to her than heterosexuality ever could?

    At age 19, Jackie came face-to-face with what it meant to be made new. And not in a church, or through contact with Christians–God broke in and turned her heart towards Him right in her own bedroom in light of His gospel.

    Read in order to understand. Read in order to hope. Or read in order, like Jackie, to be made new.
