    • 3rd Jihad : Overcoming Radical Islam’s Plan For The West (Unabridged)

      $19.98

      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.

    • Gospel Comes With A House Key (Unabridged)

      $19.98

      What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.

      With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same radical, ordinary hospitality to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God’s tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives–helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

    • Reclaiming Glory : Revitalizing Dying Churches (Unabridged)

      $12.98

      What is there about a dying church that brings glory to God? Mark Clifton’s convicting answer is Nothing.

      Because a local church is intended to represent the work of God in a community, when that church loses it saltiness, not only is God’s work pictured as irrelevant in that community, but also dishonor and disrepute may well become associated with God’s name as a result.

      In Reclaiming Glory, Clifton draws not only upon his own burden for revitalizing dying churches but also upon years of church replanting experience to offer passionate counsel for how to breathe new life into a dying church . . . all for the glory of the God who is building his church upon the immovable rock of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    • Miracle On Voodoo Mountain (Unabridged)

      $12.99

      It took months of God waking me up in the middle of the night before I realized I was the one He was calling to leave my comfortable American life and move to Haiti.

      Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is the inspirational memoir of an accomplished and driven 24-year old who quit her job, sold everything, and moved to Haiti, by herself-all without a clear plan of action. Megan Boudreaux had visited Haiti on a few humanitarian trips but each trip multiplied the sense that someone needed to address the devastation-especially with the children, many of whom were kept as household slaves on the poverty-stricken and earthquake-devastated Caribbean island.

      God guided her every step as she moved blindly to a foreign land without knowing the language, the people, or the future. From becoming the adoptive mother of former child slaves, to receiving the divine gift of the Haitian Creole language, to starting, building, and running a school for more than 500 children, the amazingness of what God did after I made the choice to be obedient is incredible, said Megan.

      Three years later, six acres on Bellevue Mountain in Gressier is the home of the nonprofit Respire Haiti at the former site of voodoo worship, and in the area that many still come to make animal sacrifices, Megan and her staff of nearly 200 are transforming this community as they educate, feed, and address the needs.

    • Insanity Of God (Unabridged)

      $24.98

      The Insanity of God is the personal and lifelong journey of an ordinary couple from rural Kentucky who thought they were going on just your ordinary missionary pilgrimage, but discovered it would be anything but. After spending over six hard years doing relief work in Somalia, and experiencing life where it looked like God had turned away completely and He was clueless about the tragedies of life, the couple had a crisis of faith and left Africa asking God, Does the gospel work anywhere when it is really a hard place? It sure didn’t work in Somalia.Nik recalls that, God had always been so real to me, to Ruth, and to our boys. But was He enough, for the utter weariness of soul I experienced at that time, in that place, under those circumstances? It is a question that many have asked and one that, if answered, can lead us to a whole new world of faith. How does faith survive, let alone flourish in a place like the Middle East? How can Good truly overcome such evil? How do you maintain hope when all is darkness around you? How can we say greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world when it may not be visibly true in that place at that time? How does anyone live an abundant, victorious Christian life in our world’s toughest places? Can Christianity even work outside of Western, dressed-up, ordered nations? If so, how? The Insanity of God tells a story-a remarkable and unique story to be sure, yet at heart a very human story-of the Ripkens’ own spiritual and emotional odyssey. The gripping, narrative account of a personal pilgrimage into some of the toughest places on earth, combined with sobering and insightful stories of the remarkable people of faith Nik and Ruth encountered on their journeys, will serve as a powerful course of revelation, growth, and challenge for anyone who wants to know whether God truly is enough.

    • Let The Nations Be Glad

      $19.98

      Why do we do missions? We are told, by Jesus, to preach the gospel and make disciples of all nations. So missions is duty, right? Wrong. If you do missions purely from a sense of duty you will not honor those you are reaching out to, nor will you truly honor God. Duty is the wrong place to look, so where do we find the answer to why we do missions? We turn, according to John Piper, to worship.

      In our worship of God we encounter God’s glory. The overflow from our worship is a desire to share God’s glory with others (the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever), and we naturally become missional. When Jesus was asked what the kingdom of God was like, he compared it to a pearl so valuable that one would sell all they owned simply to possess it. Does that seem like duty to you? Instead, Jesus calls us to a new mindset, which flows from the mindset that worship creates in us. Thus, according to Piper, does worship become the goal of missions and the fuel which makes missions possible.

      Worship as the fuel for missions makes sense to a lot of people, but worship as the goal of missions? Piper reminds us that the true reason we share God with others is to make them worshipers (and sharers) as well. He feels that the true goal of missions is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God. If it is true, (as Piper states) that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him, then increasing the number of people who are satisfied in God will bring God more glory. And missions is the way we can do that.

      Missions must be seen as more than simply saving people from sin, though that is a very important aspect. And missions is not just about getting people into heaven, although that is important as well. Instead, through missions we should always seek to make as many people as possible into true worshipers, into those fully satisfied with the greatness of God.

      With that mindset, missions becomes a joyous experience, as we joyfully share the life-changing presence of God in our lives with those who don’t know God. When we have made worship both the fuel and goal of all our missionary endeavors, we realize that missions is not a recruitment project for God’s labor force. It is a liberation project from the heavy burdens and hard yokes of other gods. Missions is never a burden, because it comes out of our overwhelming joy in God’s grace and mercy, and we just want to share that joy. So make God the center of your mission
