  • Never Ashamed : Stories Of Sharing Faith With Scoffers And Skeptics

    $14.99

    Most books on evangelism deal primarily with different approaches to sharing the good news. From street ministry to personal witnessing, books abound on how to present the gospel in a variety of ways and situations.

    But Never Ashamed isn’t a book about how. Rather, it’s a book about why. Author Avi Snyder explains:

    *Why we mustn’t be ashamed of sharing the good news in an open and direct fashion.

    *Why believers find it difficult to share the good news of salvation, despite the variety of fruit that always abounds.

    *Why non-believers often choose to walk away from the claims of the Messiah, even when they know or at least suspect in their hearts that His claims are true.

    *Why the early church felt compelled to proclaim His message, regardless of the risks and costs.

    More than this, however, Never Ashamed is a book of stories:

    *The man who told Avi he wouldn’t stop him from jumping out a window.

    *The Marxist lady trying to figure him out who eventually concluded he was a provocateur

    *The woman who prayed for God to give her compassion like Him and wept when she received it

    *The Soviet guard who helped Avi’s team pass out literature

    These and many more encounters that Avi shares will make you laugh, cry, and be filled with joy at the winsome ways in which he brings people to Jesus.

  • Hollywood Heroes : How Your Favorite Movies Reveal God

    $16.99

    Seven fictional stories–Captain America, Iron Man, Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Batman, and Wonder Woman–point us to the ultimate hero, Jesus Christ.
    Think about it. What if Batman knew your name and wanted to be friends with you? What if you were the one that Tony Stark died to save? What if it was you that Luke Skywalker would stop at nothing to redeem? Hollywood Heroes will awaken you to these questions and help you to see a God who stops at nothing to redeem you. And it will strengthen you to invite others into conversations of faith and life in Jesus.

    Fictional stories about heroes help us realize that there is evil to fight, souls to be won, and growth to be achieved. It helps us recognize–regardless of religious or cultural beliefs–that sacrificing your life for another’s is a powerful and beautiful display of love.

    Fictional heroes help us to reconsider what is tangibly in front of us through the lens of story rather than simply as just another day in our ordinary lives. Appealing straight to the heart, the stories bypass artificial barriers that we would normally block them with because our worldview has been threatened.

    When we examine out-of-this-world qualities like idealism, genius, a willingness to sacrifice, discipline, loyalty, humility, courage, wisdom, focus, power, and love, we discover that Jesus practices them perfectly.

  • Christian Apologetics : A Comprehensive Case For Biblical Faith

    $60.00

    People are hungry for hope. They want to understand our human condition-its origin, nature, purpose, and destiny. The Christian faith offers hope for individuals and the entire universe, grounded in absolute truth. But how can we know that Christianity is true? And how can Christians confidently present their beliefs in the face of doubts and competing views? In this comprehensive text, Douglas Groothuis makes a clear and rigorous case for Christian theism. Demonstrating how apologetics must be both rational and winsome, he addresses the most common questions and objections people raise regarding Christianity. After laying a foundation with the biblical basis for apologetics, apologetic method, and a defense of objective truth, he presents key arguments for the reality of God, a case for the credibility of Jesus, and evidence for the resurrection. Groothuis also evaluates alternative views and responds to challenges such as religious pluralism and the problem of evil. The second edition of this landmark work has been updated throughout to address current issues and sources. It includes new chapters on topics such as doubt and the hiddenness of God, the atonement, the church, and lament as a Christian apologetic. To know God in Christ, Groothuis argues, means that we desire to make Christian truth available to others in the most compelling form possible. Students, ordinary Christians, and seasoned philosophers will all find a wise guide for this endeavor in Christian Apologetics.

  • Biblical Case Against Theistic Evolution

    $24.99

    Why the Theory of Theistic Evolution Conflicts with Christian Doctrine

    Even Christians strongly debate Scripture’s account of creation, with some declaring that major events in the book of Genesis-from the origin of Adam and Eve to God’s curse on the world-were purely symbolic. Several respected scholars endorse this theory, but is it consistent with the Bible’s teaching?

    In A Biblical Case against Theistic Evolution, condensed and adapted from Theistic Evolution, Wayne Grudem and other leading scholars challenge the belief that Genesis is mostly symbolic, rather than a true, historical narrative. Grudem examines 12 specific events in Genesis 1-3 and explains why acknowledging their historicity is critical to understanding the rest of Scripture. He also emphasizes several foundational doctrines, including God’s ongoing involvement in creation, the beginnings of mankind, and the origin of sin and death, to show readers how the theory of theistic evolution undermines essential truths throughout the Old and New Testaments.

  • Great Quest : Invitation To An Examined Life And A Sure Path To Meaning

    $16.00

    “The unexamined life is not worth living.” -Socrates

    What is life all about? What are we here for? Is there any meaning or purpose to our existence? Thinkers throughout the centuries have pondered these questions. While the distractions of the modern world prevent many from grappling seriously with such matters, the truth is that humans cannot live without meaning any more than we can live without breathing or eating. Os Guinness invites us to examine our lives and join the great quest for meaning and a life well lived.

Guinness charts the course of the thinking person’s journey toward faith and meaning, calling for a firm grasp of reason, an honest awareness of conscience, and a living sense of wonder. He affirms that there is a time for questions, and that following those questions can indeed lead us to answers, evidence, and commitment. When life becomes a question, the search is on for an answer. Come find yourself on a sure path to meaning.

  • Atheism On Trial

    $18.00

    In the courtroom, lawyers depend on rules of evidence to make their arguments.

    A case is made by establishing certain facts from which proof can be determined. But what happens when the truth seems to be a matter of faith? Can the legal mind discern the validity of one’s belief or unbelief? Nationally recognized trial lawyer Mark Lanier turns his analytical mind to the arguments for atheism and agnosticism. With critical thinking and precision of thought, he examines the rationales made for unbelief and assesses them on their own terms, finding points of strength and weakness in their logic and coherence. He considers whether atheistic frameworks give satisfactory and consistent explanatory answers for understanding human existence and the world around us. He cross-examines the strongest arguments of prominent atheists and also interrogates the questions of agnostics as to whether God is knowable. Through his evenhanded, levelheaded approach, Lanier challenges us all to decide for ourselves what we believe.

  • Before You Go

    $15.99

    A crisis of faith isn’t always what it seems.

    To alleviate a crisis, you have to get to its source, not just treat the symptoms. Many say they are leaving the faith as the result of conscious intellectual doubts or relational hurts. But often, what’s driving the doubt is just outside of one’s conscious awareness. Unbeknownst to those struggling and those trying to help them these unconscious factors can be the actual source from which their doubt springs.

    Before You Go is a diagnostic tool for addressing doubts. Rather than rehash surface-level apologetic answers, Marriott and Wicks dig deeper into overlooked factors that frequently are the real culprits when it comes to faith crisis, namely the unconscious aspects of our experience. Find real hope for those struggling to maintain their faith and genuine help for those trying to prevent faith loss in those they love.

  • Faithful Apologist : Rethinking The Role Of Persuasion In Apologetics

    $22.99

    As Christians, we’re called to give an answer for the hope we have in Christ. But too often, this task can feel like we’re doing PR work for God, limiting our apologetic work to a series of strategies and tactics. In The Faithful Apologist, Scott Oliphint shows that this doesn’t have to be the case. He provides a cross-centered foundation for Christians to explain their faith in a welcoming and winsome manner that avoids any burden to “sell” Christianity to non-Christians.

    Drawing from the rich tradition of Reformed apologetics, Oliphint proposes a marriage between wisdom and persuasion in faith conversations. He shows that, when our faith is grounded in the Triune God and his sovereignty, our attempts to defend it will grow more confident and convincing. Accessible and thoroughly rooted in Scripture, this book takes the anxiety out of apologetics by revealing that success is not measured in the number of minds we change, but in our faithfulness to God, the Divine Persuader.

  • How Should I Think

  • God Behaving Badly

    $18.00

    God has a bad reputation.

    Many think of God as wrathful and angry, smiting people right and left for no apparent reason. The Old Testament in particular seems at times to portray God as capricious and malevolent, wiping out armies and nations, punishing enemies with extreme prejudice. But wait. The story is more complicated than that. Alongside troubling passages of God’s punishment and judgment are pictures of God’s love, forgiveness, goodness, and slowness to anger. How do we make sense of the seeming contradiction? Can God be trusted or not? David Lamb unpacks the complexity of the Old Testament to explore the character of God. He provides historical and cultural background to shed light on problematic passages and bring underlying themes to the fore. Without minimizing the sometimes harsh realities of the biblical record, Lamb assembles an overall portrait that gives coherence to our understanding of God in both the Old and New Testaments. This expanded edition includes an updated preface, afterword, and appendix addressing the story of Noah and the flood.

  • Case For Faith

    $19.99

    This timeless, compelling, and thought-provoking book on the Christian faith, now updated, includes two all-new chapters, a current list of recommended resources for further study, and a new discussion guide.

    In The Case for Faith, bestselling author, journalist, and former atheist Lee Strobel turns his investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief in God–the eight heart barriers to faith:

    *Since evil and suffering exist, a loving God cannot
    *Since miracles contradict science, they cannot be true
    *Evolution explains life, so God isn’t needed
    *God isn’t worthy of worship if he kills innocent children
    *It’s offensive to claim Jesus is the only way to God
    *A loving God would never torture people in hell
    *Church history is littered with oppression and violence
    *I still have doubts, so I can’t be a Christian

    This bestselling book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in defending their faith to skeptical friends, or during the hardest of times, when they have to defend their faith to themselves in moments of doubt.

  • Why God Makes Sense In A World That Doesnt

    $39.99

    It has never been more important to articulate the wonder and enchantment of the Christian message. Yet the traditional approaches of apologetics are often outmoded in an age of profound disenchantment and distraction, unable to meet this pressing need.

    This winsome apologetics book for a new generation makes the case that Christianity offers a compelling explanatory framework for making sense of our world. Pastor and writer Gavin Ortlund believes it is essential to appeal not only to the mind but also to the heart and the imagination as we articulate the beauty of the gospel.

    This book utilizes four frameworks for understanding the world–causation, beauty, story, and love–all of which lead to God, to present a cumulative case for Christian theism. On the basis of these four frameworks, the gospel is warranted, plausible, and even desirable given the way our world works. The book is suitable for use in classes yet accessibly written for pastors and small group leaders.

  • Miracles Today : The Supernatural Work Of God In The Modern World

Leading New Testament scholar Craig Keener addresses common questions about miracles and provides compelling reasons to believe in them today, including many accounts that offer evidence of verifiable miracles.

    This book gives an accessible and concise overview of one of Keener’s most significant research topics.

This work summarizes Keener’s basic argument but contains substantial new material, including new accounts of the miraculous. It is suitable as a textbook but also accessible to church leaders and laypeople.

  • Comprehensive Guide To Science And Faith

  • Blue Collar Apologetics

    $19.95

    Most of us know what we believe as Catholics, but often we’re unclear on why we believe it. At a time when vast numbers of Catholics are slipping away from the Faith, God has tasked you and countless other Catholics with understanding it so you will be prepared to defend it.

    With an easygoing and inviting style, EWTN’s John Martignoni doesn’t simply introduce you to the major doctrines of the Catholic Faith; he explains why they are true and shows you how to explain them effectively to Protestants and “cafeteria Catholics” alike in ways that will draw them into those truths.

    Far from a complex survey of obscure theological points, this lively book employs clear, simple language that not only demonstrates the fundamental fact that the Bible is a Catholic book, but also teaches Catholics how to “talk Bible” to non-Catholics. When you are done with this book, you will know the biblical basis for the Church’s teachings on the sacraments, Purgatory, Mary, the papacy, and why salvation requires faith and works. You’ll also be versed in the strategies for effectively challenging others to examine their beliefs in light of the overwhelming scriptural evidence for Catholicism.

    Blue Collar Apologetics will also teach you:

    *How to go on the offensive without being offensive

    *The rules of engagement for discussing the faith with others

    *Four techniques that will allow you to talk to anyone about your faith

    *An easy tactic anyone can use for engaging non-Catholics

    *How to explain the Marian dogmas using the Bible and common sense

    *The two key “pillars of Protestantism” — and how to respond to each

    *How to counter the ingrained Protestant maxim “Once saved, always saved”

    *The basics of Eastern Orthodoxy, which every Catholic needs to master

    *Effective, common sense tactics for defending the Faith against atheist attacks

    This book empowers the average person in the pews?even those who might not know where Genesis is in the Bible!?to engage in evangelization and “talk Bible,” even with the most learned Baptist minister.

  • Doubters Club : Good-Faith Conversations With Skeptics, Atheists, And The S

    $16.99

    The closer we get to the heart of God, the closer we should grow toward the doubter, the skeptic, the differing perspective, even the atheist.

    And that should make us wonder: Is it possible to grow in our Christian faith without engaging the doubter or the skeptic? And if growing in our faith means growing closer to the doubter, how do we do that without compromising what we believe to be true?

    The Doubters’ Club is a guide for people who want to live in friendship with those who think differently than them. In The Doubters’ Club, you’ll learn how to: (1) rebuild the impression the other person has of us as Christians; (2) renovate the intention we have with the nonbeliever; (3) rely on an invitation into real life (not a church service); (4) reexamine our views through initiating conversations that matter; and (5) redefine progress as imitation, not just immersion. You’ll get practical steps and tools to help you navigate relationships and conversations-but not foolproof methods (because there aren’t any).

    Maybe you’re ready to take a chance because it’s your mom or dad who is the skeptic, a sibling, an old friend, a coworker, or a neighbor. Maybe you’re just ready to embrace the adventure of your faith. If you are open to the mystery of doubt, The Doubters’ Club invites you to bring your uncertainties as common ground for relationship with skeptics and see what God does.

  • Believing Is Seeing

    $17.99

    Is your worldview enlightened enough to accommodate both science and God at the same time?

    Dr. Michael Guillen, a best-selling author, Emmy award-winning journalist and former physics instructor at Harvard, used to be an Atheist-until science changed his mind. Once of the opinion that people of faith are weak, small-minded folks who just don’t understand science, Dr. Guillen ultimately concluded that not only does science itself depend on faith, but faith is actually the mightiest power in the universe.

    In Believing Is Seeing, Dr. Guillen recounts the fascinating story of his journey from Atheism to Christianity, citing the latest discoveries in neuroscience, physics, astronomy, and mathematics to pull back the curtain on the mystery of faith as no one ever has.

    Is it true that “seeing is believing?” Or is it possible that reality can be perceived most clearly with the eyes of faith-and that truth is bigger than proof? Let Dr. Guillen be your guide as he brilliantly argues for a large and enlightened worldview consistent with both God and modern science.

    $26.99

    Is your worldview enlightened enough to accommodate both science and God at the same time?

    Dr. Michael Guillen, a best-selling author, Emmy award-winning journalist and former physics instructor at Harvard, used to be an Atheist-until science changed his mind. Once of the opinion that people of faith are weak, small-minded folks who just don’t understand science, Dr. Guillen ultimately concluded that not only does science itself depend on faith, but faith is actually the mightiest power in the universe.

  • Perhaps : Reclaiming The Space Between Doubt And Dogmatism

    $26.00

    The Christian faith requires faith.

    That means that believers are sometimes faced with uncertainty. But is all uncertainty bad? Instead of affirming either extreme of unchecked doubt or zealous dogmatism, theologian Joshua McNall encourages readers to find a space that allows them to ask difficult questions and exercise their imagination in order to move to a position of trust. With such a faith in the living God, we can seek further understanding by being open to say, “I wonder . . . ” or to ask, “What if . . . ?” Indeed, embracing a stance of “perhaps” might lead to greater faith.

  • Between Heaven And Hell

    $17.00

    On November 22, 1963, three great men died within a few hours of each other: C. S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Aldous Huxley. All three believed, in different ways, that death is not the end of human life. Suppose they were right, and suppose they met after death. How might the conversation go? Peter Kreeft imagines their discussion as part of the great conversation that has been going on for centuries about life’s biggest questions. Does human life have meaning? Is it possible to know about life after death? What if one could prove that Jesus was God? With Kennedy taking the role of a modern humanist, Lewis representing Christian theism and Huxley advocating Eastern pantheism, the dialogue is lively and informative. With clarity and wit, Between Heaven and Hell presents insightful responses to common objections to the Christian faith. This classic apologetics 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.

  • Why I Trust The Bible

    $19.99

    A Clear Guide to Help Readers Understand Why They Can Trust the Bible

    We are often told we can no longer assume that the Bible is trustworthy. From social media memes to popular scholarship, so many attacks have been launched on the believability of Scripture many have serious questions about the Bible, such as:

    *Did Jesus actually live?

    *Did the biblical writers invent their message?

    *How can we trust the gospels since they were written so long after Jesus lived?

    *How can we believe a Bible that is full of internal contradictions with itself and external contradictions with science?

    *Doesn’t archaeology disprove the Bible?

    *Why should we believe the books that are in the Bible, since many good ones were left out, like the Gospel of Thomas?

    *Why trust the Bible when there are so many contradictory translations of it?

    If you find yourself unable to answer questions such as these, but wanting to, Why I Trust the Bible by eminent Bible scholar and translator William Mounce is for you. These questions and more are discussed and answered in a reasoned, definitive, and winsome way.

    The truth is that the Bible is better attested and more defensible today than it ever has been. Questions about the Bible are perhaps the most significant challenge confronting Christian faith today, but they can be answered well and in a way which will lead to a deeper appreciation for the truth and ongoing relevance of the Bible.

  • Case For Heaven

    $26.99

    Bestselling and award-winning author Lee Strobel interviews experts about the evidence for the afterlife and offers credible answers to the most provocative questions about what happens when we die, near-death experiences, heaven, and hell.

    We all want to know what awaits us on the other side of death, but is there any reliable evidence that there is life after death? Investigative author Lee Strobel offers a lively and compelling study into one of the most provocative topics of our day.

    Through fascinating conversations with respected scholars and experts–a neuroscientist from Cambridge University, a researcher who analyzed a thousand accounts of near-death experiences, and an atheist-turned-Christian-philosopher–Strobel offers compelling reasons for why death is not the end of our existence but a transition to an exciting world to come. Looking at biblical accounts, Strobel unfolds what awaits us after we take our last breath and answers questions like:
    *Is there an afterlife?
    *What is heaven like?
    *How will we spend our time there?
    *And what does it mean to see God face to face?

    With a balanced approach, Strobel examines the alternative of Hell and the logic of damnation, and gives a careful look at reincarnation, universalism, the exclusivity claims of Christ, and other issues related to the topic of life after death. With vulnerability, Strobel shares the experience of how he nearly died years ago and how the reality of death can shape our lives and faith. Follow Strobel on this journey of discovery of the entirely credible, believable, and exhilarating life to come.

  • 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.

  • Gospel In The Stars

    $16.99

    Discover how the night sky reveals the presence and majesty of God–and always has

    The ancient wise men from the East read the skies and journeyed to worship the Christ. Do the heavens that reveal God’s glory also reveal his plan of salvation? Yes, says Joseph A. Seiss, who contemplated the strange figures of the zodiac and studied the writings of astronomers through the ages.

    After extensive research, Seiss looked into the night and became convinced that God had tched his good news there, so that people in darkness might see and have hope. Drawing upon scientific, historical, and biblical sources, Seiss assembles persuasive arguments supporting his thesis that the gospel of Jesus Christ can be seen in the stars. This illustrated study of the heavens confronts the false teachings of astrology to reveal celestial players acting out the epic drama of creation and revelation: the virgin, the coming one, the scales of justice, the toiling deceiver, the scorpion, the ram, and the lion. Popular since its first publication in 1882, The Gospel in the Stars continues to illuminate discussions of the heavens, the gospel, and the careful hand of the Creator who intertwined the two.

  • Gathering Storm : Secularism, Culture, And The Church

    $18.99

    The president of Southern Seminary reveals how secularism has infiltrated every aspect of society and how Christians, equipped with the gospel of Jesus Christ, can meet it head on with hope, confidence, and steadfast conviction.

    A storm is coming. Western civilization and the Christian church stand at a moment of great danger. The storm is a battle of ideas that will determine the future of Western civilization and the soul of the Christian church. The forces we must fight are ideologies, policies, and worldviews that are deeply established among intellectual elites, the political class, and our schools. More menacingly, these ideas have also invaded the Christian church.

    From threats to religious liberty and redefinitions of marriage and family to attacks on the sacredness and dignity of human life, the perils faced by the West and the church are unprecedented. How should Christians respond to this challenge? The Gathering Storm provides the answer, addressing each dimension of culture and showing Christians how to give an answer for the hope that is within them and how to contend for the faith that was once and for all delivered to the saints.

  • Why Is There Suffering

    $16.99

    Take a Unique Adventure as You Explore Questions about God, Suffering, Evil, Pain, and Final Destiny

    Be engaged, enlightened, and surprised by this unique book on suffering that gives control to the reader. Similar to novels that allow readers to choose their own “paths,” Why Is There Suffering? by Bethany Sollereder invites readers to make choices that lead them on an exploration of theological possibilities about topics like:
    *God’s existence
    *God’s nature
    *The nature of suffering
    *Evil
    *Pain
    *The final destiny of humans and animals

    Readers will face multiple possibilities regarding suffering and its theological explanations and have to make choices about which one they find most plausible. Each decision will lead to further complexities and new choices, helping readers see how theological choices lead to certain conclusions. This book does not offer final answers. Instead, it introduces the “theological” possibilities, both Christian and non-Christian, that readers can explore and wrestle with so they can make informed decisions about their beliefs.

    Taking an intentionally light-hearted approach to a heavy topic this accessible and winsome book presents an unusually helpful introduction to the problem of suffering and the most commonly offered responses to it. Suggestions for further reading are provided with each choice.

  • 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.

  • Why Believe : Christian Apologetics For A Skeptical Age

    $26.99

    Why bother with apologetics? Because the truth about God is worth understanding.

    In an age of skepticism, the truth of the gospel can be difficult to defend. Faithful Christians may struggle to explain the reasons for their beliefs; they may even doubt that their faith is rational at all. In the face of difficult questions of truth, Why Believe? offers a clear path forward: a Christian apologetic that is both winsome and sound. It provides accessible explanations of several core concerns of apologetics, from arguments for the existence of God and the validity of Christ’s resurrection to common questions about the practice of faith. Most important, Why Believe? argues that Christianity is not only reasonable, but also fulfilling. Only through Christianity can we know Jesus, who is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

  • Questioning Christianity : Is There More To The Story

    $13.99

    You’re interested in Christianity. But do you really understand what it’s all about?

    Getting to know Christianity is like merging onto a freeway ramp. You can see what’s right in front of you. And you know the road can take you in many fascinating directions. But how all the highways form a whole is something of a mystery. So you just keep driving and hope for the best.

    Dan Paterson and Rian Roux have the bird’s eye roadmap you need. After many years of pastoral, evangelistic, and campus ministry, they know the questions people are asking. The skeptic, the seeker, the new believer . . . they all want some real answers. Not slogans. Not politics. Not simple solutions to complex problems. The person who’s getting to know Christianity wants the big picture of what it’s all about. Who is God? What is he up to in the world? Where is he taking it? And how is Jesus the centerpiece of the divine plan to offer hope to the human race amid so much suffering? These issues–and many others–can be found in Questioning Christianity. It’s an accessible overview of the Christian faith and way of life.

  • Refuting The New Atheists

    $18.95

    If we are merely the result of billions of years of matter in motion, then why do we feel that concentration camps, genocide, apartheid, and the like are so obviously wicked and despicable, if in fact such events are just time and chance acting on matter? Harris, Hitchens, and Dawkins have made careers out of cataloguing the ways “religion” has messed up the world, from Old Testament genocide to the Spanish Inquisition to the Salem witch trials to Muslim extremism and beyond. However, Douglas Wilson shows that atheists stand on millennia of Christian culture and morality when they emphasize the problem of evil, and that atheistic materialism cannot give any account of truth, beauty, or goodness.

    A Christianity Today award-winning author and renowned debater, Wilson has many spicy and entertaining refutations to the specific claims of Harris, Hitchens, and Dawkins, but at the center of it all is the Gospel. The real foundation for morality is the fact that God has made us in His image and made us so that our consciences bear witness to His laws, even when we break them. As Wilson shows, man’s only hope is the good news that Jesus has taken on the deserved penalty for all the evils of the world in His death on the cross.

    This book contains all three of Douglas Wilson’s book-length responses to the New Atheists , published for the first time in one volume. It includes Letter from a Christian Citizen , written to Sam Harris; God Is , in reply to Christopher Hitchens; and The Deluded Atheist , a response to Richard Dawkins.

  • Bullies And Saints

    $28.99

    Is religion a pernicious force in the world? Does it poison everything? Would we be better off without religion in general and Christianity in particular? Many skeptics certainly think so.

    John Dickson has spent much of the last ten years reflecting on these difficult questions and on why so many doubters see Christianity as a major cause of harm not blessing. The skeptics, he concludes, are right: even a cursory look at the history of Christians reveals dark things therein–violence, bigotry, genocide, war, inquisition, oppression, imperialism, racism, corruption, greed, power, abuse. For centuries and even today, Christians have been among the worst bullies you could ever imagine.

    But these skeptics are only partly right: this is not what Christianity was meant to be. When Christians do evil they are out of tune with the teachings of their Lord. Jesus gave the world a beautiful melody–of love, grace, charity, humility, non-violence, equality, human dignity–to which, tragically, his followers have more often than not been tone-deaf. Denying the evils of church history does not do. John Dickson gives an honest account of the mixed history of Christianity, the evil and the good. He concedes the Christians’ complicity for centuries of bullying but also shows the myriad ways the beautiful melody of Christ has enriched our world and the lives of countless individuals. This book asks contemporary skeptics of religion to listen again to the melody of Jesus, despite the discord produced by too many Christians through history and today. It also leads contemporary believers into sober reflection on and repentance for their own participation in the tragic inconsistencies of Christendom and seeks to inspire them to live in tune with Christ.

  • Urban Apologetics : Restoring Black Dignity With The Gospel

    $22.40

    African-Americans have long confronted the challenge of dignity destruction caused by white supremacy. While many have found meaning and restoration of dignity in the black church, others have found it in ethnocentric socioreligious groups and philosophies. These ideologies have grown and developed deep traction in the black community and beyond. Previously found primarily in urban communities and conscious Hip-hop songs, now that we are in the Internet age, they have a broader reach than ever. Revisionist history, conspiracy theories, and misinformation about Jesus and Christianity are the order of the day. Many young African-Americans are disinterested in Christianity and others are leaving the church in search of what these false religious ideas appear to offer, a spirituality more indigenous to their history and ethnicity.

    Edited by Dr. Eric Mason and featuring a top-notch lineup of contributors, Urban Apologetics is the first book focused entirely on cults, religious groups, and ethnocentric ideologies prevalent in the black community. It brings the church up to speed on the legitimate issues that blacks have with Western Christianity as well as the questions alternative religious groups pose about historic Christianity, and it applies the gospel to black identity to show that Jesus is the only one who can restore our identity.

  • I Dont Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist

    $21.99

    To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.

    Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

  • Problem Of Jesus

    $19.99

    Jesus has never been more popular. Some love him, applauding him as a good teacher, a political revolutionary, or a prophetic voice speaking out against the rich and powerful. Others find him bigoted, old-fashioned, and narrow minded, even as they are forced to admit that his words and teachings are utterly unique. His presence infuses our political discussions and our dinner table debates, making him impossible to ignore.

    Yet sadly, in many churches today, the Jesus we meet is nothing more than a kindly man with children on his lap and a smile on his face. He is presented as a good person, a positive influence–a mixture of Mr. Rogers and Tony Robbins. The Jesus of American Christianity is meek, gentle, safe, and fun, always ready to be your best friend.

    When we dig more deeply into the Bible, we discover a very different picture. Wherever Jesus went in his life, from the day he was born until the day he died, scandal and controversy followed him. Be warned. If you investigate Jesus beyond the superficial glance most give him today you will be challenged and confronted. Jesus creates in each person who encounters him a crisis of faith, forcing us to a point of decision.

    In The Problem of Jesus, author and pastor Mark Clark looks beyond the superficial understandings of Jesus to examine his hard-hitting claims and teachings, including:

    *The reliable evidence that Jesus was a real, historical figure
    *The oft-unexamined cost of following Jesus
    *His claim to be God, the Creator of all, worthy of worship
    *His teachings and stories, which have always offended religious people
    *His miracles and actions, what they meant in the ancient world–and today
    *The claims of Jesus to be the only, exclusive path to God

    The Problem of Jesus confronts you with the real Jesus of history, asking you to wrestle with the teachings, claims, and actions of the man who has forever altered the course of human history. Every person must make their own decision about Jesus, choosing how they will live in light of the answers they discover about this amazing man.

  • How Not To Read The Bible

    $19.99

    When Dan Kimball first sat down to meet with a student who was disillusioned by Christianity, he wasn’t ready for what he was about to hear. The student had a positive church experience. He was grateful for his youth leader. But he had serious objections to Christianity. Why? He had begun studying the Bible and found he could no longer accept what it taught. Reading the Bible had led him to become an atheist.

    In How Not to Read the Bible, pastor and bestselling author Dan Kimball tackles one of the most pressing apologetic challenges of the twenty-first-century church–how do we read and interpret the Bible? Kimball introduces several critical principles to utilize when you open a Bible or read a verse. Then, he looks at five of the most common challenges that arise when people read the Bible today, including: the relationship between science and the Bible, the violence we find in the Bible, the treatment of women in the Bible, the odd and strange commands we find in the Bible, and the Bible’s controversial claim that there is only one way to know God. Kimball highlights several of the most common passages people find objectionable and shows readers how to correctly interpret them.

    This is an ideal book for those exploring Christianity or new to the faith, as well as Christians who are wrestling with questions about these difficult issues and the challenges of interpreting the Bible. Filled with stories and examples, as well as visual illustrations and memes reflecting popular cultural objections, How Not to Read the Bible will motivate readers who are confused or discouraged by questions they have about the Bible and guides them–step-by-step–to a clear understanding of what the Bible is saying in context. The book can also be taught as a six-week sermon series or used in small groups for study and discussion.

Our tendency is either to avoid talking about such volatile topics at all–even with other Christians–or to go on the attack, causing rifts that do nothing to encourage further discussion or growth.

    If you’re tired of avoiding tough conversations, if you want to be a light in a dark world but you’re not sure how, Challenging Conversations is the book you’ve been waiting for. 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.

  • Reimagining Apologetics : The Beauty Of Faith In A Secular Age

    $30.00

    How should one proclaim of the gospel of Jesus Christ in a secular age? For many Christians, the traditional approach of apologetics has grown stale. In light of the current secular climate, as described by Charles Taylor and others, rhetorical strategies that previously served the church and apologists well are no longer effective. Justin Bailey seeks to address this dilemma by infusing apologetics with an appeal to the imagination, the aesthetic, and the affective. Demonstrating that this is possible, he engages with two examples of those who have done apologetics through the imagination: George MacDonald and Marilynne Robinson. By beginning with the imaginative and the aesthetic dimensions of faith before expounding proofs, Bailey argues, hearers of the good news will find both their hearts and their minds engaged.

  • Another Gospel : A Lifelong Christian Seeks Truth In Response To Progressiv

    $17.99

    A movement seeks to redefine Christianity. Some think it’s a much-needed progressive reformation. Others believe it’s an attack on historic Christianity.Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She had been raised in a Christian home, where she’d seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor, who called himself a hopeful agnostic.Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith. After everything she had ever believed about God, Jesus, and the Bible had been picked apart, she found herself at the brink of despair . . . until God rescued her, helping her to rebuild her faith one solid brick at a time.Alisa’s story may be your own-or that of someone you love. Or you may have encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity in your everyday life and aren’t sure how to respond. A progressive blog post can send anyone down a rabbit’s trail of questions. In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. Alisa’s story will show you how to identify and respond to the ideas of progressive Christianity as you rest in what’s unmistakably true.

  • Too Good To Be False

    $13.99

    What if we take the story of Jesus seriously-as a story? Skeptics urge us to do that-it’s “only a story,” they say, a legend just like many other god-stories from ancient days. Why do we treat it as anything more than that? Too Good To Be False takes up that question with an approach no author has taken in close to a century. This book shows that although the skeptics’ question may be a fine one, the answer they give is as far from truth as it could be. Jesus’ character is unlike any other. No other hero-whether of history, myth, imagination, or legend-has loved as he loved, led as he led, cared as he cared, or understood himself as Jesus understood himself. Christians reading this book will encounter Jesus in fresh, worshipful new ways, and skeptics may discover his character is too unique, too consistent, and entirely too good to be false.

  • He Is There And He Is Not Silent

    $21.99

    As perhaps one of the greatest Christian philosophers of the 20th century, Francis Schaeffer made it his mission to relate Christianity to the surrounding culture’s worldview. His works continue to have relevance as Christians grapple with issues in metaphysics (How do we know we exist?), morals (How do we know right from wrong?), and epistemology (How do we know what we know?). Schaeffer invites readers into a deeper understanding of who they are, who God is, and how they know what they know, as they encounter the infinite personal God who is there and is not silent.

  • Can We Still Believe In God

    $19.99

    People regularly give certain reasons for not believing in God, but they are much less aware of what the New Testament actually teaches. Although challenges to Christianity are perennial and have frequently been addressed, they are noticeably more common today and are currently of particular interest among evangelicals.

    Skeptics of Christianity often ask highly regarded biblical scholar and popular speaker Craig Blomberg how he can believe in a faith that seems so problematic. How can God allow evil and suffering? Isn’t the Bible anti-women, anti-gay, and pro-slavery? Isn’t the New Testament riddled with contradictions? What about the nature of hell, violence in Scripture, and prayer and predestination? Following the author’s successful Can We Still Believe the Bible?, this succinct and readable book focuses on what the New Testament teaches about 10 key reasons people give for not believing in God.

  • Gathering Storm : Secularism, Culture, And The Church

    $26.99

    The president of Southern Seminary reveals how secularism has infiltrated every aspect of society and how Christians, equipped with the gospel of Jesus Christ, can meet it head on with hope, confidence, and steadfast conviction.

    A storm is coming. Western civilization and the Christian church stand at a moment of great danger. The storm is a battle of ideas that will determine the future of Western civilization and the soul of the Christian church. The forces we must fight are ideologies, policies, and worldviews that are deeply established among intellectual elites, the political class, and our schools. More menacingly, these ideas have also invaded the Christian church.

    From threats to religious liberty and redefinitions of marriage and family to attacks on the sacredness and dignity of human life, the perils faced by the West and the church are unprecedented. How should Christians respond to this challenge? The Gathering Storm provides the answer, addressing each dimension of culture and showing Christians how to give an answer for the hope that is within them and how to contend for the faith that was once and for all delivered to the saints.

  • 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.

  • Telling A Better Story

    $18.99

    The practice of offering reasons for the Christian faith, or apologetics, strikes many unbelievers today as offensive, an attempt to proselytize, while Christians themselves often view apologetics as unsophisticated or even faith-undermining. After all, shouldn’t a believer focus on presenting the gospel rather than attempting to argue people to belief?

    In Telling a Better Story, author Joshua Chatraw presents a new and better way to do apologetics, an inside-out approach that is attuned to our late-modern moment and respectful of unbelievers, all the while remaining focused on Jesus. With chapters on cultural understanding, dealing with the difficult issues, and presenting Jesus in a holistic, contextual manner, Telling a Better Story offers a roadmap to effective apologetics both for experienced apologists and those new to sharing their faith with others.

  • Anyone But Me

    $15.99

    Fear is the primary reason we fail to share the gospel with our friends, family, and coworkers. We’re afraid of looking weird or out of touch. We’re afraid we won’t have the right answers to their questions. We’re afraid that if they reject the gospel, they’re really rejecting us. We don’t want to make things awkward or strain our relationships. So we say nothing because our discomfort feels bigger than our loved ones’ ultimate destination if they remain outside of the body of Christ. We know it’s not, but it’s just so hard to get over our fear.

    Apologist Ray Comfort can help. In Anyone but Me, he shows you how to overcome your fears by developing ten critical, biblical characteristics so that you can confidently share the message of salvation with those you care about most. If you’ve been longing to see a dear friend, family member, or coworker come to Christ, now is the time to begin becoming the faithful witness they need. Because we never know how much more time we will have to proclaim God’s good news.

  • Conversations With My Unbelieving Friend

    $25.99

    Very few topics generate as much emotion as religious beliefs. Those with religious inclinations and those who are against religion frequently embrace their particular viewpoint on the basis of information, much of which may be incorrect. This holds true for both believers and non-believers. Through a series of semi-fictitious conversations, Michael Gayle seeks to address some of the issues which influence an individual’s worldview. For the non-believers, this is useful in clarifying any misconceptions which may be preventing them from even considering Christianity. For believers, it provides at least two useful functions. First of all, it may help to clarify their own misconceptions and thus strengthen their faith. Secondly, it helps to provide them with information which they can use in their own conversations with non-believers that they will encounter in their Christian walk.

    The format is that of a series of semi-fictitious conversations between the author and a fictitious friend. The conversations represent dramatizations of the content of real conversations that the author has had over the years, combined with issues which he has deliberated on himself. In a number of instances, he addresses topics in respect of which he found the traditional explanations to be unconvincing, even though they may have been correct. If someone does not believe in the veracity Bible, it will be difficult to try to convince them of the truth of a statement in the Bible, on the basis that because it is in the Bible, therefore by definition it must be true. The author has encountered this approach and was himself, unconvinced thereby. Accordingly, whilst not denying the truth of the Bible, he has taken a different approach to some of these issues, and approach which is practical, reasonable and defensible. In so doing, his hope is that he will be able to clarify some of the issues which have caused many people to arrive at misconceptions related to the Bible and Christianity. In a very light-hearted manner, he addresses such issues as atheism, blind faith, evolution, intelligent design, miracles, science, biblical accuracy and a number of other topics which are typically the subject of disagreement or misunderstanding.

    This is intended to be the first in a series of three or more books. The intention of this first volume is not necessarily to convert anyone to Christianity. The intention is to remove any obstacles which are preventing anyone from honestly rather th

  • Saving Christianity : The Danger In Undermining Our Faith — And What You C

    $16.99

    A clear and frank exploration of the future of Christianity and whether it needs to be saved.

    We live in confusing times. Our society has shifted on its moral axis, and many are asking whether Christianity needs to be reinvented-or even reimagined-in order to save it.

  • Unknown God : A Journey With Jesus From East To West

    $17.99

    We live in the age of religious pluralism where all religions are considered the same and different paths lead to the same spiritual destination. It is important for Christians to learn how to affirm Jesus Christ as the only way to God–while also paying due respect to people of other faiths and worldviews.

    In The Unknown God: A Journey with Jesus from East to West, Mathew P. John explores the redemptive revelations lurking in the darkness outside the boundaries of Christian tradition. In this spiritual journey through six major world religions, readers encounter a variety of symbols that point to the Jesus of the Bible. From Hindu avatars and Buddhist bodhisattvas, to Sikh gurus and Muslim prophets, and the Jewish messiah, consider how different religions attempt to answer the deep longing for a savior ingrained in the collective conscience of humanity.

  • Case For Miracles

    $19.99

    New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel trains his investigative sights on the hot-button question: is it really credible to believe God intervenes supernaturally in people’s lives today?

    This provocative book starts with an unlikely interview in which America’s foremost skeptic builds a seemingly persuasive case against the miraculous. But then Strobel travels the country to quiz scholars to see whether they can offer solid answers to atheist objections. Along the way, he encounters astounding accounts of healings and other phenomena that simply cannot be explained away by naturalistic causes. The book features the results of exclusive new scientific polling that shows miracle accounts are much more common than people think.

    What’s more, Strobel delves into the most controversial question of all: what about miracles that don’t happen? If God can intervene in the world, why doesn’t he do it more often to relieve suffering? Many American Christians are embarrassed by the supernatural, not wanting to look odd or extreme to their neighbors. Yet, The Case for Miracles shows not only that the miraculous is possible, but that God still does intervene in our world in awe-inspiring ways. Here’s a unique book that examines all sides of this issue and comes away with a passionate defense for God’s divine action in lives today.

  • God Who Is There

    $20.00

    For over fifty years The God Who Is There has been a landmark work that has changed the way the church sees the world. Francis Schaeffer’s first book presents a wide-ranging analysis of the intellectual and cultural climate of the second half of the twentieth century, from philosophy to art to liberal theology. Arguing that Christians must constantly engage the questions being asked by their own–and the next–generation, he envisions an apologetics and spirituality both grounded in absolute truth and engaging the whole of reality. “If we are unexcited Christians, we should go back and see what is wrong,” Schaeffer writes. “We are surrounded by a generation that can find ‘no one home’ in the universe. . . . In contrast to this, as a Christian I know who I am; and I know the personal God who is there.” In every age, this God continues to provide the anchor of truth and the power of love to meet the world’s deepest problems. Named by Christianity Today as one of the “Top 50 Books That Have Shaped Evangelicals” (October 2006), this redesigned classic is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection.

    In recent years a number of evangelical scholars have claimed that the Gospel authors felt free to present events in one way even though they knew that the reality was different. Analytic philosopher Lydia McGrew brings her training in the evaluation of evidence to bear, investigates these theories about the evangelists’ literary standards in detail, and finds them wanting. At the same time she provides a nuanced, positive view of the Gospels that she dubs the reportage model. Clearing away misconceptions of this model, McGrew amasses objective evidence that the evangelists are honest, careful reporters who tell it like it is. Meticulous, well-informed, and accessible, The Mirror or the Mask is an important addition to the libraries of laymen, pastors, apologists, and scholars who want to know whether the Gospels are reliable.

    What can we really know for sure about the past? Can anything from ancient history be regarded as ‘fact’? In particular, how seriously can we take the historical sources for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth? Did he really even live in first-century Galilee and Judaea, or is he a figure of legend?

    In this timely book, historian Dr John Dickson unpacks how the field of history works, giving readers the tools to evaluate for themselves what we can confidently say about figures like the Emperor Tiberius, Alexander the Great, Pontius Pilate, and, of course, Jesus of Nazareth.

    He presents the evidence, methods, and conclusions of mainstream scholars–both Christian and not–and asks some pertinent contemporary questions, without offering any pushy answers: If Jesus really did exist, what are we to make of his own claims and those of his followers, and what would any of it mean for us today?

  • Christian Agnostic

    $19.99

    Is it more important to follow Jesus, or to believe all the right doctrines about him? Is it better to forgive people than to judge them? Why do we find Jesus so much more appealing than those who call themselves his disciples? If you’ve asked these questions, you’re not alone; people have been struggling with them for years. Leslie Weatherhead was one of those people. A famous preacher and teacher, he nonetheless worried that Jesus’ radical message about loving and accepting others had become buried under a mountain of doctrines and rituals. And so Weatherhead wrote The Christian Agnostic for people who wanted to cut to the heart of the message of Jesus. This classic book looks at the gospel’s most essential truths about who God is and how God loves us. It then helps the reader distinguish these truths from all the theological baggage the church has attached to them over the years. If you’re searching for an authentic way to understand who Jesus is and how to follow him in today’s world, The Chirstian Agnostic is an indispensable guide for your journey.

    Although Christians don’t need convincing that the Bible is the Word of God (because they have met the Author), such gems in Scripture tend to warm the heart and solidify our faith.

    While this publication is written primarily for Christians, unbelievers-who are perhaps interested in the Bible’s immutable promise of everlasting life-may like to examine the undeniable evidence, and consider the implications if its offer of Heaven and warning of Hell are indeed true.

    $11.99

    For 2,000 years, Christians passionate to share the truth about Jesus with other people have thoughtfully done so through books. The technical term for such persons is apologists–meaning those who give a defense–but we could call them “faith thinkers.” They engage in what the fifth-century apologist Augustine called “faith seeking understanding.”

    Augustine is one of the 30 “faith thinkers” profiled here, in each case focusing on one of that apologist’s most famous books. From Luke’s book Acts of the Apostles in the first century to Lee Strobel’s The Case for Christ at the end of the 20th century, you will get a clear overview of the history of Christian faith thinkers.

  • Restoration Of Man

    $14.95

    A Discovery Institute Title

    C. S. Lewis is best known for his Narnia tales and Christian apologetics, works that have sold more than 100 million copies. But Lewis was also a trained philosopher and a professor at Cambridge and Oxford. An intellectual giant, he fiercely and extensively critiqued the fashionable dogma known as scientism-the idea that science is the only path to knowledge, and matter the fundamental reality. Michael Aeschliman’s The Restoration of Man ably surveys Lewis’s eloquent case against this dogma, and situates him among the many other notable thinkers who have entered the fray over this crucial issue. Aeschliman shows why Lewis’s case for the human person as more than matter-as a creature with inherent rationality and worth-is a precious resource for restoring and preserving our culture’s sanity, wisdom, and moral order. This newly revised and expanded edition of Aeschliman’s celebrated study includes forewords by three distinguished writers-James Le Fanu, George Gilder, and Malcolm Muggeridge.

  • Miracles Answer Book

    $14.99

    What’s the most spectacular miracle that’s ever occurred? How is a miracle different from a coincidence? What effect should miracles have in my life? If you wonder about divine phenomena-their veracity, importance, frequency, source-Christian apologist Lee Strobel has answers to satisfy your mind and your heart.

    A former skeptic, Lee Strobel was convinced by the miracle of the resurrection that Jesus is the Son of God. This launched him on a two-year investigation of whether God is still performing miracles today.

  • Salvation : What Every Catholic Should Know

    $16.95

    At every Sunday Mass, Catholics confess that Jesus came down from heaven “for us men and for our salvation.” But what does “salvation” mean? In this robust and accessible book, Scripture scholar and theologian Michael Patrick Barber provides a thorough, deeply Catholic, and deeply biblical, answer. He deftly tackles this complex topic, unpacking what the New Testament teaches about salvation in Christ, detailing what exactly salvation is, and what it is not. In easy and readable prose, he explains what the Cross, the Church, and the Trinity have to do with salvation. While intellectually stimulating, Salvation: What Every Catholic Should Know is deeply spiritual, and at its core is the salvific message that God is love, and his love is one of transformation and redemption.

  • 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.

  • Inside The Atheist Mind

    $16.99

    From USA Today bestselling author Anthony DeStefano, an entertaining retort to atheism and its proponents, revealing the intellectual bankruptcy at atheism’s core and equipping Christians to respond to its hollow arguments. Now in trade paper.

    A witty and devastating takedown of the “new” atheist position, Inside the Atheist Mind debunks the theories of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and others, revealing how inconsistent, illogical, and frankly ludicrous their conclusions truly are. Poking fun at atheists in a clever and intelligent way, Anthony DeStefano demonstrates just how full of holes the new atheism is and reveals that it is actually a “religion” of its own, complete with a creed, a set of commandments, a rigid moral code, and rewards and punishments. More than that, DeStefano exposes that atheism is itself a “superstition” of the worst kind.

    Using irony and a healthy dose of playful sarcasm, Inside the Atheist Mind lampoons, teases, and deflates the atheist position, unmasking it for what it is–an empty, intellectually barren philosophy, devoid of any logic and common sense.
