  • Resisting The Marriage Plot

    $30.00

    I cannot suppose any situation more distressing than for a woman of sensibility with an improving mind to be bound to such a man as I have described.

    Mary Wollstonecraft’s response to one of her early critics points to the fact that fiction has long been employed by authors to cast a vision for social change. Less acknowledged, however, has been the role of the Christian faith in such works. In this latest volume in IVP Academic’s Studies in Theology and the Arts series, literary scholar Dalene Joy Fisher explores the work of four beloved female novelists: Jane Austen, Anne Bront, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Mary Wollstonecraft. Each of these authors, she argues, appealed to the Christian faith through their heroines to challenge cultural expectations regarding women, especially in terms of marriage. Although Christianity has all too often been used to oppress women, Fisher demonstrates that in the hands of these novelists and through the actions of their characters, it could also be a transformative force to liberate women.

  • God Dwells Among Us

    $24.00

    The temple has always been a source of rich scholarship and theological reflection, but what does it mean for the church’s ongoing mission in the world?

    G. K. Beale and Mitchell Kim examine temple theology throughout Scripture, exploring how this theme relates to Christian life and witness today. From Eden to the new Jerusalem, they argue, we are God’s temple on the earth, the firstfruits of the new creation. Now part of the ESBT series, God Dwells Among Us bridges biblical theology and the needs of the church. God has always desired to dwell among us; now the church must follow its missional call to extend the borders of God’s kingdom and take his presence to the ends of the earth. Essential Studies in Biblical Theology (ESBT), edited by Benjamin L. Gladd, explore the central or essential themes of the Bible’s grand storyline. Taking cues from Genesis 1-3, authors explore the presence of these themes throughout the entire sweep of redemption history. Written for students, church leaders, and laypeople, the ESBT offers an introduction to biblical theology.

  • God In The Modern Wing

    $30.00

    Should Christians even bother with the modern wing at the art museum? After all, modern art and artists are often caricatured as rabidly opposed to God, the church-indeed, to faith of any kind. But is that all there is to the story?

    In this Studies in Theology and the Arts volume, coeditors Cameron J. Anderson and G. Walter Hansen gather the reflections of artists, art historians, and theologians who collectively offer a more complicated narrative of the history of modern art and its place in the Christian life. Here, readers will find insights on the work and faith of artists including Marc Chagall, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, and more.

    For those willing to look with eyes of faith, they may just find that God is present in the modern wing too.

  • Person Of Interest

    $19.99

    Dateline featured cold-case detective and best-selling author J. Warner Wallace investigates Jesus, the most significant person in history, like one of his missing body, cold-cases, demonstrating why Jesus still matters today, even in a world that is skeptical of the Bible.

    Detective J. Warner Wallace listened to a pastor talk about Jesus and wondered why anyone would think Jesus was a person of interest.

    Wallace was skeptical of the Bible, but he’d investigated several no-body, missing person cases in which there was no crime scene, no physical evidence, and no victim’s body. He successfully identified and convicted the killers in these cases, even without evidence from the scene.

    Could the historical life and actions of Jesus be investigated in the same way? Could the truth about Jesus be uncovered even without a body or a crime scene? In Person of Interest, Wallace describes his own personal investigative journey from atheism to Christianity, as he employs a unique investigative strategy to confirm the historicity and deity of Jesus–without relying on the New Testament manuscripts.

    Imagining a scenario in which every New Testament document has been destroyed, Wallace carefully sifts through the evidence from history alone to reconstruct the identity of Jesus as the world’s most important person of interest.

    Person of Interest will:
    *Invite readers into the life of a cold-case detective as he uncovers the truth about Jesus, using the same approach he also employs to solve a real murder case

    *Teach readers how to become good detectives, using an innovative and unique ‘fuse’ and ‘fallout’ investigative strategy they can also use to examine other claims of history

    *Show how Jesus changed the world and why He still matters today

    *Help readers to explore common objections to Christianity

    Creative, compelling, and unique in its approach, Person of Interest will strengthen the faith of believers, while engaging those who are skeptical and distrusting of the New Testament.

  • Theology Of The Christian Life

    $24.99

    This book gets at the heart of the Christian life by considering some of the great truths of God’s existence. Christopher Holmes, an expert in contemporary theology, engages with the church fathers along with Augustine and Aquinas to offer a rich, accessible account of the triune God and the divine perfections. Holmes shows how we share in the life of God through imitation and participation and how the doctrines of the triune God and the divine attributes shape our understanding of the Christian life. Throughout, Holmes demonstrates the importance of theology for Christian faith and practice.

  • 5 Things Theologians Wish Biblical Scholars Knew

    $20.00

    The disciplines of theology and biblical studies should serve each other, and they should serve both the church and the academy together.

    But the relationship between them is often marked by misunderstandings, methodological differences, and cross-discipline tension. Theologian Hans Boersma here highlights five things he wishes biblical scholars knew about theology. In a companion volume, biblical scholar Scot McKnight reflects on five things he wishes theologians knew about biblical studies. With an irenic spirit as well as honesty about differences that remain, in these books Boersma and McKnight seek to foster understanding between their disciplines so they might once again serve hand in hand.

  • Welcome Holy Spirit

    $22.00

    As the renowned scholar Thomas Oden noted, No subject of Christian teaching is more prone to fanaticism and novelty and subjectivism than that of the Holy Spirit.

    The Bible’s own metaphors for the Spirit are as elusive as they are evocative–wind, oil, flame, water, dove–making pneumatology a mysterious study. But shying away from the topic is no solution. Gordon Smith encourages us to seek both fresh understanding and fresh experience of the Spirit through openness to learning more, no matter what our theological tradition. In this way, as we hold biblical convictions firmly but gracefully, the guiding principles of discernment and humility will help us intentionally live Spirit-responsive lives day by day. Welcome, Holy Spirit is a much-needed master class with a trustworthy and encouraging teacher. How can we cultivate an understanding of the Holy Spirit that helps us experience the presence of the Spirit in worship, in witness, in joy and sorrow, in seasons of blessing and times of difficulty alike, all the while honoring the fullness of the Trinity? That is the objective of the reflections in this book: an attentiveness to the Spirit, not to replace Christ as the focus of our lives and worship but to bring us truly into the presence of the living and ascended Lord. It is to this end that we pray, Welcome, Holy Spirit.

  • Ethics Beyond Rules

    $26.99

    In Ethics Beyond Rules Keith Stanglin offers a clear and accessible guide for thoughtful Christians who want to lead ethical lives. Stanglin’s easy-to-understand Christian ethical system doesn’t have a long list of rules to follow but instead bases moral decision-making on Christian love.

    Stanglin is concerned less with a comprehensive ethics and scholarly discourse than with introducing everyone to important moral principles and modeling a way to reason through concrete issues. This resource does not answer every ethical question Christians face today, though it does provide examples such as abortion, sexual ethics, consumerism, technology, and politics. Instead, Stanglin provides a love-based framework for moral decisions that stands with the historic Christian faith, giving Christians the tools to consider the moral problems of today and the foundation to confront new issues in the years to come.

  • Challenge Of Jesus

    $18.00

    In the midst of many well-publicized and controversial books on Jesus, N. T. Wright’s lectures and writings have been widely recognized for providing a fresh, provocative, and credible portrait.

    Originally published in 1999 and with a new introduction in 2015, The Challenge of Jesus presents an accessible introduction to the quest for the historical Jesus and why it matters for the Christian faith. Out of his own commitment to both historical scholarship and Christian ministry, Wright challenges us to roll up our sleeves and take seriously the study of the historical Jesus. He writes, Many Christians have been, frankly, sloppy in their thinking and talking about Jesus, and hence, sadly, in their praying and in their practice of discipleship. . . . Only by hard, historical work can we move toward a fuller comprehension of what the Gospels themselves were trying to say. This classic work is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press.

  • More Christlike Word

    $19.99

    The Scriptures are an essential aspect of the Christian faith. But we have often equated them with the living Word Himself, even elevating them above the One to whom they point. In doing so, we have distorted their central message–and our view of God. Tragically, this has caused multitudes of people unnecessary doubt, confusion, and pain in their encounters with the Scriptures.

    Many people understand God as being truly loving and good. Yet, they struggle with depictions of God in Scripture as wrathful, violent, and genocidal. These toxic texts have caused some to set aside their Bibles as R-rated and unreliable. They have led others to completely reject their faith.

    Author and theologian Bradley Jersak has wrestled deeply with such passages over many years. He has experienced the same questions, doubt, and pain. In A More Christlike Word, he offers a clarifying and freeing path forward, whether you consider yourself a believer, a doubter, or a skeptic, inviting you to a better and more ancient way to read the Scriptures. He calls this path the Emmaus Way because it focuses on Jesus Christ as the final Word on God. It demonstrates how all Scripture, by design, points to Jesus, revealing the true nature of the Father.

    After deconstructing the modern biblicist/literalist approaches to Scripture interpretation that have failed us, Brad turns to the early church for a hermeneutic of prefigurement, treating the Bible as the grand narrative of redemption, told through a polyphony of voices and worldviews, culminating in the arrival of Christ as the eternal Word of God–what God has to say about himself.

    The interpretive system of the church fathers and mothers who gathered the New Testament and preached the gospel from the Old Testament has largely been ignored or dismissed by both evangelical and liberal movements, the twin children of modernity. The patristics explain and model the apostles’ Christ-centered interpretation of the Scriptures. Brad applies their approach to unwrath sample passages from each genre of the Bible, showing how even the cringe-worthy texts have an important place in the christotelic saga of divine love.

    Your journey on the Emmaus Way will open up to you the fullness of the Scriptures, and, most important, lead you to the God who deeply loves and welcomes you.

  • God Has Spoken

    $24.99

    A Repackaged Edition of J. I. Packer’s Robust Defense of Biblical Inerrancy

    With the Bible’s historical and scientific accuracy under attack, many Christians have abandoned their long-standing conviction that it is truly God’s word. How should the church respond to doubts about the trustworthiness of Scripture?

    In this repackaged edition of God Has Spoken, late theologian J. I. Packer mounts a formative defense of the inerrancy of the Bible, calling readers to reclaim the unity between inspiration (how God has spoken) and revelation (what God has spoken). Packer argues that the doctrine of Scripture is essential because it is how Christians learn about the character of God, his purpose for the world, and their fallen state. Without this, mankind is left without the saving message of the gospel. This classic text continues to be relevant today as it challenges a new generation of readers to trust in God’s word as the inerrant source of truth.

  • Overflow : How The Joy Of The Trinity Inspires Our Mission

    $12.99

    What does the Trinity have to do with missions? As it turns out . . . everything.

    Too often, we put theology in one part of the Christian life and missions in another-and they never meet. A doctrine like the Trinity belongs in the intellectual realm, while missions belongs with the practical parts of life. Or so we think. But is that really the way it should be?

    Michael Reeves wants you to understand that the doctrine of the Trinity has everything to do with the practice of missions. When a Christian sees the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as divine persons who are so full of love that it radiates and overflows into creation-and into the lives of human beings-our perspective on missions is radically changed. No longer is missions an obligation or a drudgery. Instead, realizing the abundance of love that goes forth from God, we who have received and delighted in such love are motivated to go forth as well.

    Let the radiance of God’s triune beauty capture your heart. Then God’s great mission won’t be a chore, but will naturally overflow from your joyous delight in Him.

  • What God Has To Say About Our Bodies

    $17.99

    What does God have to say about our bodies?

    To modern secular culture, the human body is little more than a vehicle for free self-expression-our bodies belong to us, and we can do with them as we please. In this way, the prevailing culture has lost sight of the true significance of the body. Similarly, Christians also tend to underemphasize the significance of the physical body. In What God Has to Say about Our Bodies, Sam Allberry argues that the Bible has a lot to say about the body, and shows how the practical significance of Scripture’s teaching on this topic impacts how Christians should think and behave. Organized around three categories-what God intended for the body (creation), the impact of sin on the body (fall), and how God will redeem the body (redemption)-the book provides believers with a balanced and accessible theology of the body as they seek to glorify God in everything they do.

  • Heritage Of Anglican Theology

    $39.99

    Historical and Theological Reflections on the Anglican Church from J. I. Packer

    The Anglican Church has a rich theological heritage filled with a diversity of views and practices. Like a river with a main current and several offshoot streams, Anglicanism has a main body with many distinct, smaller communities. So what constitutes mainstream Anglicanism?

    Influential Anglican theologian J. I. Packer makes the case that authentic Anglicanism is biblical, liturgical, evangelical, pastoral, episcopal (ordaining bishops), national (engaging with the culture), and ecumenical (eager to learn from other Christians). As he surveys the history and tensions within the Anglican Church, Packer casts a vision for the future that is grounded in the Scriptures, fueled by missions, guided by historical creeds and practices, and resolved to enrich its people.

  • Theological Ethics : The Moral Life Of The Gospel In Contemporary Context

    $29.99

    Be Prepared to Think Theologically through Today’s Most Pressing Ethical and Moral Issues

    In Theological Ethics theologian, pastor, and ethicist W. Ross Hastings gives pastors, ministry leaders, and students a guide designed to equip them to think deeply and theologically about the moral formation of persons in our communities, about ethical inquiry and action, and about the tone and content of our engagement in the public square. The book presents a biblical perspective and a gospel-centered framework for thinking about complex contemporary issues in ways are life-giving and that will lead readers into greater flourishing as human persons in community.

    This book is distinctive in presenting:

    *A framework for theological ethics that is robustly theological and Trinitarian. Ethics isolated from the gospel and theology becomes bad news, but when it is informed by and empowered by participation in the triune God of grace, it is part of the good news of the gospel.

    *An approach to theology and theological ethics that makes the Word of God the ultimate authority and it is therefore grounded in the biblical narrative and texts.

    *An understanding that theological ethics are inherently missional. The church as the image of the triune God makes it the home of ethics, but in light of its missional identity, it will reverberate outwards to engage the world in ways that are humble and not power-mongering, that are gospel-based and shalom-evoking.

    Theological Ethics is for those who lead churches or ministries (or someday will) and who urgently need deep theological grounding as they daily encounter ethical and moral issues where they need to provide a gracious, truthful, and gospel-directed response.

  • Encountering Jesus In The Real World Of The Gospels

    $29.95

    Encountering Jesus in the Real World of the Gospels draws readers into a deeper understanding of ancient Israel and first-century Judaism-the clothing, setting, political climate, and more-all to better understand Jesus’ ministry. Instead of reading the Gospels through twenty-first-century eyes, author Cyndi Parker introduces readers to the larger context with the weight of the Old Testament behind them.

    This is an approachable and conversational book that introduces the reader to the complex human world of Jesus. Have you ever wondered if it is important that Jesus grew up in Nazareth but moved his public ministry to Capernaum, even though Jerusalem was the capital of Jewish thought? Does it seem strange to you that Pharisees, Sadducees, and Essenes held significantly divergent religious views, even though they were all Jewish? In this book, Cyndi Parker guides us through the intriguing drama of history that created the context of first-century Judaism. She extends an invitation to readers to take a new look at the long drama of God’s interactions with humanity that reach a climax in the life of Jesus.

    Encountering Jesus in the Real World of the Gospels focuses on the complexities of the political, social, literary, and religious context of the Gospels. The purpose is to advance readers’ understanding of the Gospels and help them encounter Jesus, the disciples, and crowds as real people in a real place at a time vastly different from today. Come explore the land of ancient Israel with its dramatic history, culture, and religion. Includes many images, maps, photos, and drawings throughout!

  • Systematic Theology Second Edition

    $59.99

    The most widely-used text of the last 25 years in its discipline, Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem has been thoroughly revised and expanded (all 57 chapters) for the first time while retaining the features that have made it the standard in its field: clear explanations, an emphasis on each doctrine’s scriptural basis, and practical applications to daily life.

    With several hundred pages of new content, this new edition now includes the following distinctive features.

    *Updated, fuller analysis of several recent controversies within evangelicalism, including the eternal relationship between the Father and the Son in the Trinity, the question of God’s atemporal eternity, the role of women in the church, seeker-sensitive churches, miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, and contemporary worship music.

    *New, thoughtful critiques of open theism, the new perspective on Paul, Molinism (or middle knowledge), Free Grace theology, and the preterist view of Christ’s second coming

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on the clarity of Scripture

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on creation and evolution (including a longer critique of theistic evolution)

    *New discussion of how biblical inerrancy applies to some specific problem verses in the Gospels

    *Additional material respectfully explaining evangelical Protestant differences with Roman Catholicism, Protestant liberalism, and Mormonism.

    *Completely updated bibliographies

    *All Scripture quotations updated from RSV to ESV

    *An explanation of why monogenes in John 3:16 and elsewhere should be translated as only begotten rather than merely only (this is a change from the first edition)

    *A contemporary worship song added at the end of each chapter (while retaining the traditional hymns as well)

    *Numerous other updates and corrections

    Part of the brilliance of Systematic Theology over the years has been its simplicity and ease of use. Each chapter follows the same structure. First, there is discussion of the doctrine being considered, such as justification or the Trinity or the deity of Christ. An explanation of where that doctrine is supported in the Bible and possible objections follow. Personal application and key terms to know for personal growth are then provided. Chapters also include a scripture memory passage, references to other literature on the topic, and suggested hymns and worship songs.

  • Challenging Conversations : A Practical Guide To Discuss Controversial Topi

    $16.99

    When was the last time you had an honest, heartfelt, yet kind and productive conversation with someone about depression, mental illness, substance abuse, pornography, premarital sex, racism, divorce, abortion, LGBTQ issues, or church scandals?

With straightforward answers to some of the most challenging moral issues disrupting the church, this book will help you build your confidence using three simple steps to becoming a conversant Christian. Each chapter begins with a true story, clarifies misconceptions and misunderstandings about the subject, and equips you to build rapport, ask the right questions, find points of agreement, and take the next fruitful step in the relationship. Because even if we disagree on a moral issue, that shouldn’t make us mortal enemies.

  • Hell : A Guide

    $25.99

    From bestselling author Anthony DeStefano comes an exploration of what we know–and what we cannot know–about the most misunderstood and most controversial subject in Christianity.

    C. S. Lewis imagined it as a grey, joyless city. The Italian poet, Dante Aligheri, wrote that it was a series of nine circles. And each one of us probably has our own vision of it. But what do we really know about hell? What does the Bible tell us about it, and what is speculation, myth, or even plain error?

    Anthony DeStefano, the bestselling author of A Travel Guide to Heaven, takes us on an exploration of hell, the devil, demons, and evil itself. Written with the clarity and logic of C. S. Lewis and the vivid storytelling of John Bunyan and J. R. R. Tolkien, Hell: A Guide takes up questions such as:
    *Is hell a place or a state of being?
    *What does hell look like?
    *What kind of suffering do people in hell experience?
    *What are the devil and demons really like?

    Rooted in solid, orthodox Christian scholarship, this one-of-a-kind book investigates everything there is to know about one of the most fascinating, yet often misunderstood, subjects of all time.

  • What The Bible Says About How To Know Gods Will

    $9.99

    At some point, every Christian wonders, What is God’s will for me in this situation? There are many situations for which Scripture doesn’t provide a black-and-white answer. In this book, adapted from his larger work Christian Ethics, Wayne Grudem helps readers stop overcomplicating God’s will and instead embrace the different ways they acquire wisdom for daily life. He lays out guidelines for making decisions both big and small. After looking at the 4 dimensions of every action (the action itself, attitudes, motives, and results), Grudem works through 9 sources of information and guidance, both objective (information from the Bible, information from studying the situation, information about ourselves, advice from others, changed circumstances) and subjective (conscience, heart, a human spirit, and the Holy Spirit). Readers will gain insight into how to make the right decisions about situations that arise in their lives.

  • What The Bible Says About Abortion Euthanasia And The Dignity Of Human Life

    $9.99

    Abortion and euthanasia are hot-button issues in our world today, accompied by many differing views, deeply held convictions, and personal experiences related to privacy, sexual behavior, personal desires and responsibility, pregnancy, and children-but deeper than all these is the nature of human life itself. In this timely book, adapted from his larger work Christian Ethics, Wayne Grudem argues that human life is rooted in God’s image, and it is therefore morally wrong to put an innocent human to death, whether at the beginning or end of life. He offers a biblical guide to these topics, defining his terms clearly, exploring science and politics, and weighing opposing arguments-answering questions about the protection of an unborn child, abortion in the case of rape or danger to the mother’s life, and when to stop medical treatment at the end of someone’s life. This short book will help all who seek to understand what the Bible teaches about these important issues that deal with human life.

  • Divine Dance

    $14.99

    What if changing our perception of God has the potential to change everything?

    God is not what you think. Visions of an angry, distant, moral scorekeeper or a supernatural Santa Claus handing out cosmic lottery tickets to those who attend the right church or say the right prayer dominate our culture. For many others, God has become irrelevant or simply unbelievable.

    In The Divine Dance, Fr. Richard Rohr (with Mike Morrell) points readers to an unlikely opening beyond this divinity impasse: the at-times forgotten, ancient mystery of the Trinity–God as utterly one, yet three.

    Drawing from Scripture, theology, and the deepest insights of mystics, philosophers, and sages throughout history, Fr. Rohr presents a compelling alternative to aloof and fairytale versions of God:

    One God, belovedly in communion, as All-Vulnerable, All-Embracing, and All-Given to you and me.

    The Divine Dance makes accessible and practicable the Christian tradition’s most surprising gift…

    God as Community…as Friendship…as Dance.

  • Resurrection : Investigating A Rabbi From Brooklyn, A Preacher From Galilee

    What made Jesus the Messiah?

    This book will teach you the Jewish roots of your faith and help you gain a fresh new perspective on the resurrection of Jesus.

    In 1994, after one of the greatest rabbis of the twentieth century died at the age of ninety-two, his followers began to proclaim him as the Messiah. They expected him to rise from the dead and even come again. Is this possible? Could a deceased rabbi be the Messiah?

    In this fascinating book, biblical scholar Michael L. Brown, PhD, takes you on a captivating journey beginning in Brooklyn, New York, where this famous rabbi died in 1994, then back through Jewish history, looking at little-known Jewish beliefs about the Messiah, potential Messiahs that emerged in each generation, and teachings about the reincarnated soul of the Messiah. Dr. Brown then looks at the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus from his unique perspective as a Messianic Jew, demonstrating why Jesus’ resurrection uniquely confirms that He alone is the promised Messiah.

    This page-turner is for everyone who is interested in the Jewish roots of our faith, everyone fascinated by Jewish tradition, and everyone wanting to gain a fresh new perspective on the resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. It is also a great witnessing tool for Christians who want to share the good news of Yeshua the Messiah with their Jewish friends.

  • Heaven And Hell

    $28.00

    What happens when we die? A recent Pew Research poll showed that 72% of Americans believe in a literal heaven, 58% in a literal hell. Most people who hold these beliefs are Christian and assume they are the age-old teachings of the Bible. But eternal rewards and punishments are found nowhere in the Old Testament and are not what Jesus or his disciples taught.

    So where did the ideas come from?

    In clear and compelling terms, Bart Ehrman recounts the long history of the afterlife, ranging from The Epic of Gilgamesh up to the writings of Augustine, focusing especially on the teachings of Jesus and his early followers. He discusses ancient guided tours of heaven and hell, in which a living person observes the sublime blessings of heaven for those who are saved and the horrifying torments of hell for the damned. Some of these accounts take the form of near death experiences, the oldest on record, with intriguing similarities to those reported today.

    One of Ehrman’s startling conclusions is that there never was a single Greek, Jewish, or Christian understanding of the afterlife, but numerous competing views. Moreover, these views did not come from nowhere; they were intimately connected with the social, cultural, and historical worlds out of which they emerged. Only later, in the early Christian centuries, did they develop into the notions of eternal bliss or damnation widely accepted today.

    As a historian, Ehrman obviously cannot provide a definitive answer to the question of what happens after death. In Heaven and Hell, he does the next best thing: by helping us reflect on where our ideas of the afterlife come from, he assures us that even if there may be something to hope for when we die, there is certainly nothing to fear.

  • Book Of Signs

    $19.99

    The apocalypse. The end times. The day of judgment. Terms such as these are both fascinating and frightening for any student of God’s Word. They point to key questions people have wrestled with for centuries, including:
    *What does the Bible tell us about the future?
    *Why is biblical prophecy relevant for Christians today?
    *What signs and signals will precede the end?
    *Which of those signs have already come to pass, which are we experiencing now, and which are still to come?

    Drawing from decades of experience as one of the world’s most-respected Bible teachers, Dr. David Jeremiah once again brings his signature wisdom, depth, and compassion to the discussion of biblical prophecy–a discussion that becomes more and more critical with each passing day.

    Join Dr. Jeremiah as he lays out the signs of the end times and helps you prepare for the days ahead in thirty-one easy-to-understand chapters. Filled with engaging illustrations and practical application, The Book of Signs is a must-have resource for Christians seeking to navigate the uncertainties of the present and embrace God’s promises for the future.

  • 10 Commandments : A Guide To The Perfect Law Of Liberty

    $15.99

    You know them. But do you understand them?

    The Ten Commandments have become so familiar to us that we don’t think about what they actually mean. They’ve been used by Christians throughout history as the basis for worship, confessions, prayer, even civil law.

    Are these ancient words still relevant for us today? Their outward simplicity hides their inward complexity. Jesus himself sums up the entire law in a pair of commandments: Love God with all your heart, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.

    Peter Leithart re-introduces the Ten Commandments. He shows us how they address every arena of human life, giving us a portrait of life under the lordship of Jesus, who is the heart and soul of the commandments.

  • Equal : What The Bible Says About Women, Men, And Authority

    $16.99

    In Equal, Church and ministry leader Katia Adams argues that the church has too often misrepresented the heart of Jesus to release and empower women and men. With sensitivity to both sides of the argument, Adams draws on the wisdom of Scripture, theology, and the Holy Spirit. Blending them with her own personal experiences, she asserts that both women and men are equally called to serve and lead in the church and in the world-and that, by restricting the roles of women, we are missing God’s design for the church and for the gospel’s impact on the earth.

  • 2 Kinds Of Righteousness

    $9.99

    The instant a man knows that he is the righteousness of God in Christ, and knows what that righteousness means, Satan is defeated. — E. W. Kenyon

    In this classic Christian work, legendary Bible teacher E. W. Kenyon fully describes biblical righteousness. The church has been good at teaching about man’s need of righteousness, his weakness and his inability to please God. But far too many believers remain in that shameful state of sin condemnation because the church has neglected to proclaim who we are in Christ, that righteousness is not reserved for someday in heaven–it is available to us now! Unless you know who you are, and what you are in Christ, you cannot live a victorious life; Satan, sin, and disease will be your masters. Righteousness is the ability to stand in the presence of God without any sense of guilt or inferiority. If you live a life of weakness and defeat, it is because you do not know what you are in Christ. The supreme need of the church at this hour is to know who we are in Christ, to fully comprehend how the Father Himself looks upon us, and to walk in the knowledge that righteousness can be ours today.

  • Confronting Christianity : 12 Hard Questions For The World’s Largest Religi

    $24.99

    Although many people suggest that Christianity is declining, research indicates that it continues to be the world’s most popular worldview. But even so, the Christian faith includes many controversial beliefs that non-Christians find hard to accept. This book explores 12 issues that might cause someone to dismiss orthodox Christianity-issues such as the existence of suffering, the Bible’s teaching on gender and sexuality, the reality of heaven and hell, the authority of the Bible, and more. Showing how the best research from sociology, science, and psychology doesn’t disagree with but actually aligns with claims found in the Bible, these chapters help skeptics understand why these issues are signposts, rather than roadblocks, to faith in Christ.

  • Not Afraid Of The Antichrist

    $17.00

    Despite the popular theology of our day, Christians should not expect to get out of experiencing the tribulation or the end times. Nowhere in the Bible does the Lord promise us this, say Michael Brown and Craig Keener, two leading, acclaimed Bible scholars. In fact, they say, Jesus promises us tribulation in this world.

    Yet this is no reason to fear. In this fascinating, accessible, and personal book, Brown and Keener walk you through what the Bible really says about the rapture, the tribulation, and the end times. What they find will leave you full of hope. God’s wrath is not poured out on His people, and He will shield us from it–as he shielded Israel in Egypt during the ten plagues. So instead of taking comfort in what God hasn’t promised, take comfort in the words of Jesus: He has overcome the world, and we live in his victory.

  • Astonished By God

    $12.99

    This book is a revised, improved version of Doctrine Matters.

    For more than thirty years, John Piper pastored in the rough and tumble realities of downtown Minneapolis, preaching his people through the ups and down of life one Sunday at a time. When it came to capturing a generation of joy in one final sermon series, he turned to ten trademark truths to leave ringing in his peoples’ ears.

    These ten are world-shaking truths-each astonishing in its own way. First they turned Piper’s own world upside down. Then his church’s. And they will continue to turn the whole world upside down as the gospel of Christ advances in distance and depth. These surprising doctrines, as Piper writes, are wildly untamable, explosively uncontainable, and electrically future-creating.

    Join a veteran author, pastor, and Christian statesman as he captures the ten astonishing, compassionate, life-giving, joy-awakening, hope-sustaining truths that have held everything together for him.

    Charles Spurgeon knew that when sinners put their faith and trust in the shed blood of Jesus, they begin a whole new life. Weakness, injuries, sickness, impurities–these are the effects of sin. Through the blood of Christ, the believer experiences cleansing, healing, purifying–mankind’s miracle. This book is a collection of Spurgeon’s teachings on the power of Christ’s blood, which can be applied to the believer’s life in much the same way as the Passover blood protected the Israelites. He teaches how the blood of Christ provides salvation, forgiveness, redemption, healing, power to overcome temptation, and even unity in the church when the evil one tries to divide us.

  • Majority World Theologies

    $14.99

    As Christianity’s center of gravity has shifted to the Majority World in the 21st century, many younger churches in Africa, Asia, and Latin America are now coming of age. With this maturing comes the ability to theologize for themselves, not simply to mimic what they have been taught from the West. As theology is an attempt to articulate through human language and culture and contexts the timeless truths of the eternal and transcendent God, Majority World churches have much to offer the West and the world, as they contribute to a greater understanding of the Lord.

    Here is a collection of chapters exhibiting local theologizing from around the world, not just from the big three non-Western continents but also including the Middle East and indigenous North America. Just like Jesus (a first-century Aramaic-speaking Jew from Roman-occupied Israel) exhibited, the local is applicable to the global. And with Christ’s call to his disciples to take his message to the ends of the earth, this volume exemplifies the concrete reality of that today, not just as the message having been received but also as having been incorporated, synthesized, and rebirthed in new and exciting ways.

    Benjamin Myers re-introduces the Apostles’ Creed, helping us to see how difficult and counter-cultural the Creed really is. It doesn’t give us sweet, empty words. It’s a faith that demands we die so that we might live.

    In the early church, many converts died for their faith so they needed to have a good idea what they might die for. Early church pastors and theologians used the Apostles’ Creed as the essential guide to the basics of the Christian life.

    The Apostles’ Creed has united Christians from different times, different places, and different traditions. The truths proclaimed in the Creed are eternal.

  • Divine Dance Large Print Edition (Large Type)

    $23.99

    Invitation to a Dance
    The Trinity is supposed to be the central, foundational doctrine of our entire Christian belief system, yet we’re often told that we shouldn’t attempt to understand it because it is a mystery. Should we presume to try to breach this mystery? If we could, how would it transform our relationship with God and renew our lives?

    The word Trinity is not found in the New Testament–it wasn’t until the third century that early Christian father Tertullian coined it–but the idea of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit was present in Jesus’ life and teachings and from the very beginning of the Christian experience.

    In the pages of this book, internationally recognized teacher Richard Rohr circles around this most paradoxical idea as he explores the nature of God–circling around being an apt metaphor for this mystery we’re trying to apprehend. Early Christians who came to be known as the Desert Mothers and Fathers applied the Greek verb perichoresis to the mystery of the Trinity. The best translation of this odd-sounding word is dancing. Our word choreography comes from the same root. Although these early Christians gave us some highly conceptualized thinking on the life of the Trinity, the best they could say, again and again, was, Whatever is going on in God is a flow–it’s like a dance.

    But God is not a dancer–He is the dance itself. That idea might sound novel, but it is about as traditional as you can get. God is the dance itself, and He invites you to be a part of that dance. Are you ready to join in?

    What became known as the 95 Theses was a series of statements expressing concern with corruption within the Church, primarily the selling of indulgences to the people as a means covering them from their sins.

    Additional Info
    Many Christians share the assumption that preaching the word of God is at the heart of God’s plans for the gospel in our age, that it is vital for the church’s health, and that it is the central task of the pastor-teacher. Many helpful books on preaching are available. The vast majority are concerned with ‘how-to’, but relatively few focus primarily on the character and theology of preaching according to Scripture. Two key, interrelated questions need to be addressed. First, is there such a thing as ‘preaching’ that is mandated in the post-apostolic context-and, if there is, how is it defined and characterized? Second, how does post-apostolic ‘preaching’ relate to the preaching of the Old Testament prophets and of Jesus and his apostles? In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume Jonathan Griffiths seeks answers to these questions in the New Testament. In Part 1 he gives an overview of the theology of the word of God, surveys Greek terms related to preaching, and looks at teaching concerning the scope and character of other word ministries in the life of the church. In Part 2 his exegetical studies concentrate on teaching that relates especially to the post-apostolic context. In Part 3 he summarizes the exegetical findings, sets them within the context of biblical theology, and proposes a number of broader theological implications. Griffiths’s accessible, scholarly investigation will be of value to scholars, pastors, preachers and Bible teachers. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

  • Whats So Important About The Cross

    $9.99

    We know that Jesus’ death on the cross is a historic fact, but does it have any true meaning and value to us today?

    Legendary Bible teacher Derek Prince explains that the cross not only provides forgiveness from sin-it also makes everything else work in our lives. The cross continues to be the ultimate demonstration of God’s love and the source of ongoing supernatural grace for us. It is also the basis of healings and miracles today and the foundation of Satan’s total defeat. It is even the door to God’s secret wisdom as it allows us access the mind and heart of our heavenly Father.

    By recognizing to the centrality of the cross, personally applying it our lives, we enter into the totality of God’s power and provision for us.

    The cross: not just a historical event but forgiveness, victory, abundance. Today.
