  • Isaiah For You

    $17.99

    Isaiah can seem intimidating. It’s a big book covering an extended timescale, full of unfamiliar names and places. You may be familiar with Isaiah’s vision of God’s holiness in chapter 6 or his description of the cross in chapter 53. But large sections can feel like alien territory.

    But the book of Isaiah is full of good news. Forming a kind of bridge between the Old Testament and the New Testament, Isaiah enlarges our view of God, sharpens our understanding of salvation and illuminates our Bible reading. It points forward to Jesus and fuels our vision for the church and our mission. This is good news worth shouting about!

    This expository guide by pastor and author Tim Chester takes you verse by verse through the text in a digestible and applied way. Each chapter focuses on a key text and shows how its themes play out in the surrounding passages, helping you to drill down into the details while also seeing the big picture. You’ll find ideas and challenges for application throughout, plus a helpful glossary at the back.

    It is less academic than a traditional commentary and includes lots of application. It can be read from cover to cover, used in personal devotions, used to lead small group studies, or used for sermon preparation.

  • God Of The Dangerous Sermon

    $19.99

    Every sermon has a theology, and a god of that theology behind it. Preaching is more effective, and has more integrity when preachers understand the god behind their theology. Specifically, whether the god is a universal God, like the one expressed by Christ and the Christian faith, or a tribal god, which is sometimes dressed up to resemble Christianity but is something else entirely.

    Frank A. Thomas culminates his exploration of the Dangerous Sermon with this book, which leads readers through the process of identifying and understanding the gods behind theology, and their connection to preaching. The reader is equipped to discern the metaphors, symbols, and rhetorical indicators which point to the god a preacher is serving and calling others to serve.

  • Together In Ministry

    $22.00

    Women and men are designed to work together in fulfilling God’s mission on earth.

    Yet God’s original intent for equal partnership has been so distorted that churches and organizations continually struggle to foster healthy mixed-gender ministry collaboration. Is it even possible to return to the Genesis ideal of co-laborers in today’s contexts? Longtime ministry leader Rob Dixon knows it’s possible–though it takes intentionality, courage, and wisdom. Based on qualitative field research among ministry practitioners, Together in Ministry offers a prophetic roadmap for individuals and communities as they seek to develop flourishing ministry partnerships for women and men. Organized around the key domains of inner life, community culture, and intentional practices, this model identifies ten key attributes of partnerships that are both personally satisfying and missionally effective. For each attribute Dixon presents research findings and biblical examples, along with benefits, barriers, and practical next steps. With plenty of real-life stories from ministry leaders and reflection questions in each chapter, Together in Ministry casts a compelling–and encouraging–vision for flourishing partnerships and equips teams and individuals with next steps for making that vision a reality.

  • Counselors Guide To Christian Mindfulness

    $24.99

    Mindfulness is now a therapeutic touchstone for a range of emotional issues, from mild distress to the treatment of trauma, emphasizing quiet, analog practices that balance out the busyness of our daily techno-heavy lives. Christian mindfulness is about making time, on purpose, to turn our whole attention to God so that we can hear His still small voice above the chatter. It is a sense of awareness which encompasses the thought life of the person leading them to become more aware of their thoughts with a conscious, non-judgmental posture.

    In A Counselor’s Guide to Christian Mindfulness John Trent and Regina Trammel offer counselors training in mindfulness-based therapies such as dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. These therapies have been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of many mental health issues, blending elements in the fields of neuroscience, social science, and religious training. They offer a Christian perspective that will be extremely helpful in helping Christian counselors and therapists to confidently use mindfulness interventions with those they treat and help.

    Christian mindfulness means that we turn our minds to God and he transforms our thoughts and emotions as we unite our will, our mind, and ultimately, our control over to him as the perfecter and healer of our faith.

    The practice of Christian mindfulness can be tremendously helpful in developing biblical skills to help clients manage their intrusive and stressful thoughts, emotions, relationships, and challenges. This book fills a gap for Christian counselors and therapists who are eager for a resource that teaches mindfulness skills from a purposefully Christian and biblical perspective.

  • Forming Resilient Children

    $24.00

    Many children today are growing up in the midst of adversity, whether family difficulties or larger societal crises.

    All children need to be able to deal with stress, cope with challenges, and persevere through disappointments. While we cannot protect children from all hardships, we can promote healthy development that fosters resilience. In this interdisciplinary work, Holly Catterton Allen builds a bridge between resilience studies and children’s spiritual formation. Because children are spiritual beings, those who work with them can cultivate spiritual practices that are essential to their thriving in challenging times. This book equips educators, counselors, children’s ministers, and parents with ways of developing children’s spirituality to foster the resilience needed to face the ordinary hardships of childhood and to persevere when facing trauma. It offers particular insight into the spiritual experiences of children who have been hurt by life through chronic illness, disability, abuse, or disasters, with resources for healing and hope.

  • Difficult Words Of Jesus

    $16.99

    Jesus provided his disciples teachings for how to follow Torah, God’s word; he told them parables to help them discern questions of ethics and of human nature; he offered them beatitudes for comfort and encouragement. But sometimes Jesus spoke words that followers then and now have found difficult. He instructs disciples to hate members of their own families (Luke 14:26), to act as if they were slaves (Matthew 20:27), and to sell their belongings and give to the poor (Luke 18:22). He restricts his mission (Matthew 10:6); he speaks of damnation (Matthew 8:12); he calls Jews the devil’s children (John 8:44).

    In The Difficult Words of Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine shows how these difficult teachings would have sounded to the people who first heard them, how have they been understood over time, and how we might interpret them in the context of the Gospel of love and reconciliation.

    Additional components for a six-week study include a DVD featuring Dr. Levine and a comprehensive Leader Guide.

  • Path To Being A Pastor

    $17.99

    A Practical Guide for Men Aspiring to Ministry

    What does it mean when a young man says he is called to be a pastor? Does that mean he is, or will be, qualified to be an elder? Is he gifted to work in pastoral ministry? According to pastor Bobby Jamieson, the idea of calling is the wrong place to start.

    In The Path to Being a Pastor, Jamieson exhorts readers to trade the question Am I called? for Am I qualified? Instead of making pastoral ministry their goal, he encourages aspiring pastors to focus on their qualifications for eldership and begin participating in ministry in their local churches. For those further along the process and beginning their pastoral work, Jamieson offers advice about godly ambition, encouragement for those going through the candidating process, and a call to cherish Christ above their ministry. Comprehensive in scope and written from personal experience, this guide lays the groundwork for aspiring leaders to walk through various stages of ministry preparation, trusting that the Lord will direct their steps on the path to becoming a pastor.

  • Innovation Crisis : Creating Disruptive Influence In The Ministry You Lead

    $16.99

    If you aren’t innovating, stagnation isn’t far away.

    Ministry leaders carry the burden of keeping their organizations lean, focused, and relevant. The stakes are especially high for churches and other organizations that fulfill the Great Commission. When souls are on the line, there’s no room for bureaucratic bloat or sustaining a cumbersome infrastructure. It’s up to the leadership-that’s you-to realize where the organization is in maintenance mode and find ways to innovate even when the growth curve has slowed and the team has started to grow complacent.

    Using missions disruptor William Carey as an example, Ted Esler shows how you, too, can innovate in ways that change the ministry landscape. Esler will help you keep an eye on your eccliosystem-the ecclesial ecosystem in which you exist. You’ll learn about the four stages of organizational culture-disrupting, innovating, sustaining, and stagnating-and gain strategies for staying in that sweet spot where innovations keep coming and stagnation can’t take hold.

    The gospel of Jesus Christ never grows stale. Don’t let your ministry ever forget it!

  • 3 Big Questions That Change Every Teenager

    $19.99

    Today’s teenagers are the most anxious, creative, and diverse generation in history–which can make it hard for us to relate. And while every teenager is a walking bundle of questions, three rise above the rest:
    – Who am I?
    – Where do I fit?
    – What difference can I make?

    Young people struggle to find satisfying and life-giving answers to these questions on their own. They need caring adults willing to lean in with empathy, practice listening, and gently point them in the direction of better answers: they are enough because of Jesus, they belong with God’s people, and they are invited into God’s greater story.

    In this book, which is based on new landmark research from the Fuller Youth Institute and combines in-depth interviews with data from 1,200 diverse teenagers, Kara Powell and Brad M. Griffin offer pastors, youth leaders, mentors, and parents practical and proven conversations and connections that help teenagers answer their three biggest questions and reach their full potential.

  • Out Of The Cave Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $19.99

    Many believers today assume that God’s peace, power, and protection in their lives should prevent them from ever feeling anxious, depressed, or afraid. But what we find in the Bible is the exact opposite! In God’s Word, we are told to fear not at least 365 times-one for each day of the year-along with frequent reminders of God’s presence in the midst of every human emotion . . . including depression and anxiety.

    In this five-session video Bible study (DVD/digital video downloads sold separately), bestselling author and pastor Chris Hodges draws on the story of Elijah to show no matter how powerful, accomplished, or successful we may be, we can all still succumb to fear, doubt, despair, and hopelessness. In 1 Kings 18, we read how Elijah (whose very name means Yahweh is my God) won renown for defeating the priests of Baal during the reign of King Ahab. But when the wicked Queen Jezebel sent a message vowing to take his life, the prophet fled into the wilderness and came to a broom bush, where he sat down under it and prayed that he might die (1 Kings 19:4).

    Elijah’s story reveals that even when we’re walking closely with God, we can still stumble and get lost in the wilderness of tangled emotions. But the good news is that we don’t have to stay there! Like Elijah, we can become overcomers in Christ and press on to God-inspired victory. As Out of the Cave reveals, God will provide rest for the weary, hope for the desperate, and balm for the aching soul.

    $22.25

    Have you ever wished certain passages weren’t in the Bible?

    It can be all too easy to trade the truth of God’s grace and mercy for a skewed view of certain biblical texts that seem to paint God as oppressive, distant, or difficult to understand. Upon closer examination, this harsh view of God is the exact opposite of His true character. God welcomes His children with deep compassion and care, while holding all power and authority.

    In this 7-session study, discover God’s extravagant love in some of Scripture’s most misunderstood passages. Because the God of the Old Testament is the same redemptive, loving, and grace-filled God we see through Christ in the New Testament.

    How Much More will show you that God is for you-even in the places He may have seemed silent before.

  • Reformed Pastor : Updated And Abridged Edition

    An Updated and Abridged Edition of Richard Baxter’s Classic Text

    The Reformed Pastor has been cherished by generations of pastors for its urgent call to faithfulness and emphasis on personal soul care. Originally a series of talks to fellow ministers by the English Puritan Richard Baxter, this book expounds on the apostle Paul’s encouragement to the elders of Ephesus to keep watch over themselves and all their flock. Baxter composed this message to encourage ministers toward a more intentional and sacrificial soul care, so that in turn they would better shepherd their congregations. In this updated and abridged edition, Tim Cooper presents Baxter’s iconic exposition in easy-to-read language so that a new generation can reflect on what it means to be a faithful pastor in Christ’s church.

  • I Am Restored Study Guide Plus Streaming Guide (Student/Study Guide)

    $19.99

    Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds-sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression-that threatened to tear it all apart. Along the way, he realized the wounds we all carry through life have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves and others.

    In this four-session study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), Lecrae explains how this journey led him to realize that Christians operate in a functional state of chaotic living that has them bound and trapped in unhealthy patterns and habits without addressing deep root issues. As a result, he began to develop some simple practices when the chaos strikes that have led him to greater mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This involved taking an honest and unflinching look not only at the chaos within his own life but also the chaos without-the hurt that so often occurs in culture, politics, family, the church, and other public spaces.

    I Am Restored reminds us that learning to let go and forgive is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom that God has for each us. It is an inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration that is available to each of us now through Christ. It is also an encouragement to grab hold of the life God has for us. For no matter what we’ve experienced, God is near, he hears, and he’s not done with us yet.Designed for use with I Am Restored Video Study (sold separately).

  • 10 Key Roles Of A Pastor

    $15.99

    If most pastors were pressed to describe an average day of ministry, they’d have trouble doing it. In a single day, a pastor may fill many different roles in quick succession, from counselor to theologian to student to CEO to custodian (well, let’s hope there’s usually someone else available to perform that last role). Some roles come more naturally than others, but every pastor wants to perform each role to the best of their ability.

    In The 10 Key Roles of a Pastor, church consultant Gary L. McIntosh shows pastors how to:
    – understand and juggle their many essential roles
    – prioritize their time and energy
    – manage their people’s expectations of them
    – and empower others to take up the vital work of the church body

    Pastors just starting out in ministry, as well as those who have been at it a while and find themselves overworked and overwhelmed, will value this practical resource. It is also an enlightening read for those in church leadership who would benefit from understanding the pressures their pastor faces on a daily basis.

  • Your First Step To Celebrate Recovery

    $6.99

    The program that has helped over five million people overcome their hurts, hang-ups, and habits

    You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression time heals all wounds. Unfortunately, it isn’t true. As many pastors and counselors know, people still carry hurts from thirty or forty years ago. The truth is, time often makes things worse. Wounds that are left untended fester and spread infection throughout your entire body. Time only extends the pain if the problem isn’t dealt with.

    Your First Step to Celebrate Recovery introduces you to a biblical and balanced program that has helped nearly five million people overcome their hurts, hang-ups, and habits. Based on the actual words of Jesus found in the Sermon on the Mount rather than psychological theory, the Celebrate Recovery program has helped people for over 20 years to grow toward full Christ-like maturity.

    Author and founder John Baker tells the true story of how Celebrate Recovery became one of the largest Christ-centered recovery programs in history. Baker will help you discover how God’s love, truth, grace and forgiveness can bring healing into your life.

  • God Of Deliverance Bible Study Book (Student/Study Guide)

    $22.25

    Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph (Exodus 1:8).

    With that introduction, we enter into the story of the Hebrew people in the Book of Exodus. No longer under the protection of their forefather Joseph, the children of Israel became slaves to the Egyptians. But God was raising up a deliverer in Moses, to lead His people from bondage to freedom so they could worship Him.

    In this 10-session verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1-18, journey alongside God’s people from Egypt to Mt. Sinai to unpack the deeper meaning behind stories that may already be familiar to you: the struggle of God’s people in slavery to the Egyptians, the birth and life of Moses, the plagues God leveled against Pharaoh, and God’s great provision in the parting of the Red Sea. Discover how God fights for His children and prioritizes their worship of Him above all else.

  • Whats So Amazing About Grace Participants Guide Updated Edition (Student/Study G

    $13.99

    In this six-session revised and updated video Bible study, bestselling author Philip Yancey explores the concept of grace-the one thing the world cannot duplicate and the one thing it craves above all else-and explores what it looks like in action. He also examines how Christians, as the sole dispensers, are doing at lavishing the grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy.

    As Yancey explains, true grace is shocking and scandalous, for God does not excuse sin but always treasures the sinner. God always extends his grace to individuals regardless of what they have done-for no one is unforgiveable in his eyes. Grace thus shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today’s AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus’ day.

    Yancey offers compelling and true portraits of grace’s life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks how Christians today can contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear. And he challenges each of us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, what’s so amazing about grace.

  • Dont Give The Enemy A Seat At Your Table Study Guide (Student/Study Guide)

    $13.99

    In this study, bestselling author and pastor Louie Giglio relates how several years ago he experiencing one of his toughest seasons as a leader. He was feeling attacked, and in a moment of weakness, he fired off an angry text to a friend. It took him five minutes to compose the message-paragraphs of woe about the one causing harm. The nine-word text back from his friend simply said, Don’t give the enemy a seat at your table.

    Louie relates how this simple text led him to realize that he had been allowing his adversary-the devil-into the conversation going on in his mind. He had, in fact, been giving his enemy a seat at his table. In turn, this led Louie to Psalm 23, one of the most loved texts in all of Scripture that has comforted God’s people throughout the ages.

    As group members go through this study, they will see they have the power, through Christ, to take back control of their thoughts and emotions. As they uncover the meaning behind the words of Psalm 23, they will discover that God is saying they do not have to give a place to fear, envy, or despair in their lives. Ultimately, they will walk away with practical ways to defeat the enemy’s lies and know how to experience peace and security in the midst of any situation as they learn to listen to voice of their Shepherd.

    Designed for use with Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table Video Study (sold separately).

    16 Encouraging Sermons on Human Weakness and God’s Sufficiency by Francis Schaeffer

    Most Christians take an honest look at themselves and conclude that their limited talents, energy, and knowledge mean that they don’t amount to much. Some even ask Can I really make a difference? This is a result of a culture that emphasizes power and influence as signs of success. Francis A. Schaeffer counters this claim with truth from the Bible, arguing that there is no such thing as little people when they are wholly consecrated to God.

    This repackaged edition of No Little People contains 16 sermons from Schaeffer that explore the weakness and significance of humanity in relationship to the infinite and personal God. The focus of this collection is the lasting truth of the Bible, the faithfulness of God, the sufficiency of the work of Christ, and the reality of God’s Spirit in history. Readers will be encouraged by the value that God places on each person made in his image to accomplish his redemptive plan.

  • Global Church The First Eight Centuries

    $39.99

    Discover the Diversity and Unity of the Early Church

    The Christian church of the early centuries spread throughout much of Asia, Africa, and Europe, spoke many languages, was situated within diverse cultural settings, and had varied worship practices; yet it maintained a vital unity on core teachings. In The Global Church–The First Eight Centuries: From Pentecost through the Rise of Islam, author Donald Fairbairn helps readers understand both the diversity and unity of the church in this pivotal era by:
    *Re-centering the story of the church in its early centuries, paying greater attention to Africa, Turkey, and Syria, where most of the church’s intellectual energy was nurtured

    *Highlighting Christian communities outside the Roman Empire, as far afield as Persia and India, alongside those within it

    *Identifying key events by their global, not merely Western, significance and taking into account early Christian interactions with other religions, particularly Islam

    The Global Church–The First Eight Centuries is an ideal introduction to the patristic era that broadens the narrative often recounted and places it more firmly in its various cultural contexts. Students of the early church, formal and informal alike, will appreciate the fresh approach and depth of insight it provides.

  • Men And Women In The Church

    $19.99

    A Biblical Primer on Men and Women in the Church

    There is much at stake in God making humanity male and female. Created for one another yet distinct from each other, a man and a woman are not interchangeable-they are designed to function according to a divine fittedness. But when this design is misunderstood, ignored, or abused, there are dire consequences.

    Men and women-in marriage especially, but in the rest of life as well-complement one another. And this biblical truth has enduring, cosmic significance. From start to finish, the biblical storyline-and the design of creation itself-depends upon the distinction between male and female. Men and Women in the Church is about the divinely designed complementarity of men and women as it applies to life in general and especially ministry in the church.

    $13.99

    Truly, it’s never been easier or more convenient for people to connect with one another. Yet more and more people today are describing themselves as lonely. Why? If everything in this world is so connected, why are so many of us feeling disconnected? How can we better navigate life and love in today’s complex world?

    In this six-session video-based Bible study (DVD/digital video downloads sold separately), pastor and bestselling author Ben Stuart will help you navigate through four relational stages of life: singleness, dating, engagement, and marriage.

    As you embark on this journey, you will discover:
    *How to leverage your singleness to make an impact for the kingdom of God
    *How to pursue dating with clarity and purity
    *How to use the season of engagement to prepare for marriage
    *How to maximize your life as a married couple for shared ministry
    *How to continually seek God and his will throughout each stage

    This study will show you how to embrace God’s design for each stage, invest your life in what matters most, and find purpose-whether you are single, dating, engaged, or married.

    Designed for use with Single, Dating, Engaged, Married Video Study (sold separately).

  • Mysteries Of The Messiah Study Guide With Dvd

    $42.99

    In this six-session video Bible study, Rabbi Jason Sobel uncovers connections between the Old Testament and New Testament that are vital in giving us a complete picture of God’s plan for sending Jesus into the world as the Messiah. In the Gospel of Luke, we read how Jesus revealed this connection to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. They listened as Jesus explained, beginning with Moses and the Prophets . . . what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself, and later asked themselves, Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us? (Luke 24:27,32).

    Too many of us today are likewise missing this connection. We are settling for just the New Testament or the Old Testament and not understanding how the Bible fits together as a whole to offer one complete picture of Jesus. Both the Old and New are God’s priceless possessions . . . and neither one is more or less valuable than the other. However, together their value increases dramatically! For both are needed in order for us to experience our full inheritance in God’s kingdom and His beloved children.

    As Rabbi Jason unlocks these connections, participants will come to understand:
    *How the foundation of the Bible (The Torah) fits with the rest of Scripture
    *How the Torah answers the question of who is the promised seed?
    *How all of the Bible works to give a picture of the promise of Messiah
    *What implications this has for their lives as the Old and New Testaments come together

    The Mysteries of the Messiah will show participants that God’s Word-written by many people over thousands of years-is not a random selection of people and stories but of intricate connections. Rabbi Jason will connect the dots, helping them see with clarity and high definition what God intended.

    This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.

  • Pursued Womens Bible Study Leader Guide (Teacher’s Guide)

    $14.99

    Discover how God is pursuing you as you explore His relentless love from Genesis to Revelation in Pursued by Jennifer Cowart.

    We all want to be loved. We long to be desired, pursued-whether by a special someone, our friends, or others in our lives. This longing for love and acceptance is the underlying story of many of our lives, and it’s the overarching story we see throughout the Scriptures. Although the Bible tells many stories, the main theme is God’s relentless love for us.

    In Pursued, a six-week Bible study by Jennifer Cowart, we will explore God’s great love for us from Genesis to Revelation. We will see that God passionately pursues people who do not deserve His love, and we are those people!

    Like Cain, Abraham, Sarah, Rebekah, David, the woman caught in adultery, Peter, and so many others, we are the ones who have broken relationship with God. But He runs after us anyway to bring us home.

    In this study, we will explore God’s love as evidenced in the stories of creation, the patriarchs, the judges and prophets, Jesus, and the early church. Together we will dive into a great love story and discover that it is our story!

    Through this study women will:
    *See the big picture of God’s love for them throughout the Scriptures
    *Discover that God wants a personal relationship with them
    *Experience God’s relentless love for them individually
    *Realize that God never stops pursuing them

    Components for this six-week Bible study, each available separately, include a Participant Workbook, a Leader Guide, and video sessions with six 20 to 25-minute segments (with closed captioning).
