  • My Body Is Not A Prayer Request

    $19.99

    The church has forgotten that we worship a disabled God whose wounds survived resurrection, says Amy Kenny. It is time for the church to start treating disabled people as full members of the body of Christ who have much more to offer than a miraculous cure narrative and to learn from their embodied experiences.

    Written by a disabled Christian, this book shows that the church is missing out on the prophetic witness and blessing of disability. Kenny reflects on her experiences inside the church to expose unintentional ableism and cast a new vision for Christian communities to engage disability justice. She shows that until we cultivate church spaces where people with disabilities can fully belong, flourish, and lead, we are not valuing the diverse members of the body of Christ.

    Offering a unique blend of personal storytelling, fresh and compelling writing, biblical exegesis, and practical application, this book invites readers to participate in disability justice and create a more inclusive community in church and parachurch spaces. Engaging content such as reflection questions and top-ten lists are included.

  • Assembly : A Spirituality

    $26.00

    In his previous book, The Pastor: A Spirituality, Gordon W. Lathrop writes: The most important symbol of Christ in the room is not the minister, not the altar, not even the bread and wine or the water of the font. It is the assembly, the Body of Christ, as the New Testament says (page 27). This statement forms the central theme of this new book. Reflecting on the recent painful time of pandemic, when the wisest and most caring course was not to assemble at all, has illuminated the author’s conviction and strengthened it. But as churches return to in-person worship and life in community, they will need to revisit formation in assembly practice.

    This book articulates why and how the assembly is so important in Christianity. Lathrop intends the book to assist Christian congregations and their pastors or priests to recover vital, participatory, and life-giving in-person worship after the pandemic. He further intends that participants will see and treasure the importance of assembly as the primary form of church and as a vital source of Christian daily life.

    Part 1 of the book looks in depth at the assembly, discusses why the sacraments are assembly events, and explores how the assembly forms Christians for daily living. Part 2 presents a critical catechism for the assembly, with emphasis on the sacraments, the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments.

  • Inalienable : How Marginalized Kingdom Voices Can Help Save The American Ch

    $18.00

    With our witness compromised, numbers down, and reputation sullied, the American church is at a critical crossroads. In order for the church to return to health, we must decenter ourselves from our American idols and be guided by global Christians and the poor, who offer hope from the margins, and the ancient church, refocusing on the kingdom, image, Word, and mission of God.

    The American church is at a critical crossroads. Our witness has been compromised, our numbers are down, and our reputation has been sullied, due largely to our own faults and fears. The church’s ethnocentrism, consumerism, and syncretism have blurred the lines between discipleship and partisanship. Pastor Eric Costanzo, missiologist Daniel Yang, and nonprofit leader Matthew Soerens find that for the church to return to health, we must decenter ourselves from our American idols and recenter on the undeniable, inalienable core reality of the global, transcultural kingdom of God. Our guides in this process are global Christians and the poor, who offer hope from the margins, and the ancient church, which survived through the ages amid temptations of power and corruption. Their witness points us to refocus on the kingdom of God, the image of God, the Word of God, and the mission of God. The path to the future takes us away from ourselves in unlikely directions. By learning from the global church and marginalized voices, we can return to our roots of being kingdom-focused, loving our neighbor, and giving of ourselves in missional service to the world.

  • Stuck : Why Clergy Are Alienated From Their Calling, Congregation, And Care

    $22.99

    Stuck is a guide for understanding how and why a traditional approach to ministry does not align with the modern realities facing pastors, congregations, and seminaries. More than simply describing findings from their firsthand research, however, Todd W. Ferguson and Josh Packard offer a new understanding of why professional ministry can be so alienating today.

    Stuck shifts the dominant narrative around calling, vocation, and ministry away from a focus on individual traits and characteristics of pastors and congregational leaders and toward a more structural understanding of the social forces that impact modern ministry. The authors focus on the nature of calling; the need for modern, flexible congregational supports; and a different approach to training professional clergy.

    Stuck lets pastors who feel stuck know that they’re not alone, they’re not crazy, and it’s not their fault. It helps congregations be more supportive of their clergy. And it participates in the conversation for reshaping seminary training and professional development.

  • Gender Identity And Faith

    $28.00

    Helping people navigate gender identity questions today is complex and often polarized work.

    For clients and families who are also informed by their faith, some mental health approaches raise more questions than answers. Clinicians need a client-centered, open-ended approach that makes room for gender exploration while respecting religious identity.
    Gender Identity and Faith carves out clinical space for mental health professionals to help people who wish to take seriously their gender identity, their religious identity, and the relationship between the two. Drawing from their extensive research and experience with clients, Mark Yarhouse and Julia Sadusky provide a timely, practical resource for practitioners. This book:

    *emphasizes respect for clients’ journeys, without a single fixed outcome, toward congruence between their gender identity and faith

    *describes effective clinical postures, assessment and therapeutic tools, and numerous case studies

    *covers needs and characteristics of children, youth, and adult clients

    *includes worksheets and prompts for clients and family members

    “Integrating personhood and values is no easy feat, especially in our current cultural landscape,” the authors write. Those navigating this intersection need clinicians who seek to understand their unique context and journey with them with empathy. This book helps point the way.

  • Non Anxious Presence

    $15.99

    For much of recent history individuals and institutions could plan, execute, and flourish with their visions of a better world. Volatile, complex forces could be addressed and confronted with planning and management. But crisis is a great revealer. It knocks us off our thrones. It uncovers the weaknesses in our strategies and brings to light our myths and idols. Our past strategies run aground, smashed by unpredictable and chaotic waves. Yet in the midst of the chaos of a crisis comes opportunity. The history of the church tells us that crisis always precedes renewal, and the framework of renewal offers us new ways forward. A Non-Anxious Presence shows how that renewal happens and offers churches and leaders strategic ways to awaken the Church and see our culture changed for Christ.

  • Speaking By The Numbers

    $24.00

    It’s not just what you say, but how you say it.

    Good communicators know this, but it’s often easier said than done. Teachers, leaders, and speakers are often left bewildered, wondering why the content that was so carefully planned and delivered seems to fall flat with the audience. The art of communication requires more than the transfer of information; it both connects with and engages the hearer. To communicate well, speakers must understand both their audience and themselves. Speaking by the Numbers offers a strategy that combines communication principles with Enneagram wisdom to help leaders, pastors, and teachers understand how to convey content in ways that both inspire and connect with their audiences. Using the Enneagram wisdom of triads and stances, communicators can learn insight into the ways that various Enneagram numbers receive and process information. Sean Palmer draws from his extensive experience as a public speaker to develop communication strategies that lead to connection, transformation, and mobilization of audiences. Providing real examples of speeches and messages he has given, Palmer shows how he uses the Enneagram to craft a message that connects with his audience. A healthy marriage of Enneagram wisdom and communication skill can help us speak with clarity into the heart of where people live, love, and experience life.

  • Agents Of Flourishing

    $26.00

    God calls Christians to participate in his redemptive mission in every sphere of life.

    Every corner, every square inch of society can flourish as God intends, and Christians of any vocation can become agents of that flourishing. Amy Sherman offers a multifaceted, biblically grounded framework for enacting God’s call to seek the shalom of our communities in six arenas of civilizational life (The Good, The True, The Beautiful, The Just, The Prosperous, and The Sustainable). Because we believe in what is good and true, we strengthen social ethics and contribute to human knowledge and learning. Because we value beauty, we invest in creative arts. Because we are committed to a just society, we work toward restorative justice and a well-ordered civic life. And our desire to see society prosper sustainably means that our business practices seek the economic good of the community while protecting the physical health of our environment. This comprehensive volume showcases historical and contemporary models of faithful and transformational cultural engagement, with case studies of all kinds of churches advancing human flourishing. It provides a roadmap for leaders wanting to participate in Christ’s mission of holistic renewal. Discover how being God’s agents of flourishing can change our communities for the better and offer a winsome witness to a watching world.

  • In Deep Waters

    $21.00

    The starting point for In Deep Water: Spiritual Care for Young People in a Climate Crisis is not news: the world as we know it is shifting. Several millennia of climate stability have come to an abrupt end.

    But, observes Talitha Amadea Aho, the young people of today do not remember stability. They see the world through crisis-colored glasses. Climate change is creating a spiritual emergency that is hitting their generation harder than any other.

    Today’s climate crisis calls people of faith to a communal spiritual practice of care, especially for those who are more vulnerable because of their youth–the children, youth, and young adults of Generation Z. We must learn how to offer spiritual care that is informed by the spiritual-ecological crisis of their generation.

    This book will help you keep young people at the center of your community and listen to the troubles they have to share. Whether you are a Gen Z peer or a caring adult of any other generation, In Deep Water will show you how to offer ecologically informed spiritual care.

    We all need to do it today; we cannot wait until one of today’s youngest generations grows up.

  • Waymaker Study Guide With DVD

    $49.99

    We can trust that God, the WayMaker, is always at work creating the life of our dreams, through ways we never would have dreamed for ourselves.

    In a disorienting world, with obstacle after obstacle, and the landscape of our lives shifting in ways we never expected, we can trust that as we look to our Maker, the WayMaker, our road will lead us to arrive exactly where we always hoped it would, though maybe not at all in the way we imagined. And those dreams for our lives? They can still happen-in ways only He perfectly dreamed of.

    It is true: heartache, grief, suffering, obstacles, they all come in waves. There is no controlling life’s storms; there is only learning the way to walk through the waves. In this video Bible study, bestselling author Ann Voskamp hands us a map that makes meaning of life, that shows the way through to the places we’ve only dreamed of reaching, by a way we never expected.

    Voskamp reveals how God is present in the totality of our lives, making a way:
    *for the marriage that seems impossible,
    *for the woman who longs for a child of her own,
    *for the parents who ache for the return of their prodigal,
    *for the sojourner caught between a rock and a hard place, and
    *for the wayfarer who feels as though there is no way through to her dreams.

    We can encounter the WayMaker in surprising ways and begin to see Him not only making poetry out of pain but working in every miraculous detail of our lives. Even now, the Way is making the way to walk through waves and into a life more deeply fulfilling than our wildest dreams.

    This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.

  • Undistracted Study Guide With DVD

    $49.99

    This study guide with DVD includes:
    *Individual access to five streaming video sessions
    *Discussion and reflection questions with video notes
    *Personal study for between sessions
    *Leader’s Guide

    Disappointments are a fact of life. Setbacks will happen to us all at some point. It is easy to allow such events to steal our joy and distract us from our true purpose. But we don’t have to fall into that trap. We can choose to keep our focus on Christ even in turmoil and be the kind of people who get busy moving in another direction.

    In this five-session video study, bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to be joyful in every situation. As he notes, the hard truth is that most of us live our lives consumed by worries and fears about things over which we have no control. We struggle to know how we should interact with family or friends. We fret about our finances and our faith. We question our college major and career choice. Add to this that we’re following a God we can’t see, for a lifetime we can’t measure, to a heaven we can’t comprehend, because of grace we didn’t earn.

    We’re all trying to figure it out as we go. This leaves more offramps than onramps, more chances for confusion than certainty and more ambiguity than clarity. All of this vagueness plays right into the hands of darkness. The enemy doesn’t seek to destroy us with an obvious all-out assault. No, he wants to distract us, keep us locked up in worries, and prevent us from experiencing those things that will give us true joy in life.

    This is the goal of this study–to provide a roadmap to defeat discouragement and regain joy in life by becoming captivated by something better. Joy will provide practical steps to help participants make that journey.

    Sessions and run times include:

    1. Undistracted in Our Attitude (16:30)
    2. Undistracted in Our Service (15:30)
    3. Undistracted in Our Relationships (16:30)
    4. Undistracted in Our Faith (17:30)
    5. Undistracted in Our Purpose (17:30)

  • Listeners Dare : Hearing From God In The Sermon

    $16.99

    Discipleship and witness are not self-sustainable. Preaching equips God’s people for the work of serving and building up the body of Christ (Eph. 4:11).

    The story of Moses and the talking bush is a story of anybody who dares to listen, and in listening, hears, and after hearing steps forth (albeit kicking and screaming in Moses’s case), serving God on the basis of what has been heard. Daring divine speaking and intrepid human listening are at the heart of the faith of Israel and the church.

    “Reveal yourself!” we cry to God down through the ages. God spoke Jesus, The Word tenting among us (John 1:1). And what’s Jesus’s main occupation? Jesus came preaching (Mark 1:14).

    The gospel is news that passes from the lips of one who has heard to the ears of one who has not yet heard, then (God willing) burrows in the soul, energizing the hands in daring response to a word received. Preaching is instigated by an astounding claim: Good news; God has spoken to us. The Christian life is what you get when ordinary folk respond: I have heard.

    The book is for anyone who listens to sermons–which includes preachers, since there’s no way to preach without gaining skills as a listener. Listening is a human skill, but as God’s word is proclaimed the hearer experiences a vocal mix of preacher, listener, and God.

    Listeners Dare shares a love of preaching and also lets listeners into some of the secrets of why preaching is inherently connected to the Christian faith as one way God has chosen to relate to us and to disclose God’s will for each of us. Settings for use include college, course of study, and seminary preaching classes, a pastor’s Bible study, an inquirer’s class led by a pastor, and inquisitive individuals who yearn to get something out of the sermon.

    Preachers profit from the book by becoming more astute listeners to preaching, and listeners would be able to increase their ability to “get something out of” sermons or examine their distractions that block this vital means of grace through worship together. Bits and pieces of biblical sermon events as well as contemporary sermons are used for illustrative purposes.

  • Anxiety Field Guide

    $18.00

    Anxiety is one of the most pressing mental health issues of our day.

    Millions of people in our society suffer from anxiety, often unbeknownst to those around them.

    We can trust that God, the WayMaker, is always at work creating the life of our dreams, through ways we never would have dreamed for ourselves.

    In a disorienting world, with obstacle after obstacle, and the landscape of our lives shifting in ways we never expected, we can trust that as we look to our Maker, the WayMaker, our road will lead us to arrive exactly where we always hoped it would, though maybe not at all in the way we imagined. And those dreams for our lives? They can still happen-in ways only He perfectly dreamed of.

    It is true: heartache, grief, suffering, obstacles, they all come in waves. There is no controlling life’s storms; there is only learning the way to walk through the waves. In this video Bible study (DVD/digital video downloads sold separately), bestselling author Ann Voskamp hands us a map that makes meaning of life, that shows the way through to the places we’ve only dreamed of reaching, by a way we never expected.

    Voskamp reveals how God is present in the totality of our lives, making a way:
    *for the marriage that seems impossible
    *for the woman who longs for a child of her own
    *for the parents who ache for the return of their prodigal
    *for the sojourner caught between a rock and a hard place
    *for the wayfarer who feels as though there is no way through to her dreams

    We can encounter the WayMaker in surprising ways and begin to see Him not only making poetry out of pain but working in every miraculous detail of our lives. Even now, the Way is making the way to walk through waves and into a life more deeply fulfilling than our wildest dreams.

  • Undistracted Study Guide Plus Streaming Video

    $19.99

    This study guide includes:
    *Individual access to five streaming video sessions
    *Discussion and reflection questions with video notes
    *Personal study for between sessions
    *Leader’s Guide

    Disappointments are a fact of life. Setbacks will happen to us all at some point. It is easy to allow such events to steal our joy and distract us from our true purpose. But we don’t have to fall into that trap. We can choose to keep our focus on Christ even in turmoil and be the kind of people who get busy moving in another direction.

    In this five-session video study, bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to be joyful in every situation. As he notes, the hard truth is that most of us live our lives consumed by worries and fears about things over which we have no control. We struggle to know how we should interact with family or friends. We fret about our finances and our faith. We question our college major and career choice. Add to this that we’re following a God we can’t see, for a lifetime we can’t measure, to a heaven we can’t comprehend, because of grace we didn’t earn.

    We’re all trying to figure it out as we go. This leaves more offramps than onramps, more chances for confusion than certainty and more ambiguity than clarity. All of this vagueness plays right into the hands of darkness. The enemy doesn’t seek to destroy us with an obvious all-out assault. No, he wants to distract us, keep us locked up in worries, and prevent us from experiencing those things that will give us true joy in life.

    This is the goal of this study–to provide a roadmap to defeat discouragement and regain joy in life by becoming captivated by something better. Joy will provide practical steps to help participants make that journey.

    Sessions and run times include:

    1. Undistracted in Our Attitude (16:30)
    2. Undistracted in Our Service (15:30)

  • Faithful To The Call

    $12.99

    Biblical and historical records show that women have been involved in ministerial leadership alongside men from the earliest days. In Faithful to the Call, Dr. Carla Sunberg brings together a group of scholars, pastors, and ministry leaders who expertly make the Wesleyan case for women in ministry. From the Old Testament to the New, from the days of John Wesley to the founding days of the Church of the Nazarene, and all the way up to today, women have been integral in carrying out the mission of God and discipling others to do the same. The authors and chapters in this book offer ample historical, biblical, theological, and practical evidence for why women, like men, should be Faithful to the Call when God gifts us and then invites us to participate in God’s grand story.

    Faithful to the Call contributors include: Rev. Dr. Nina Gunter, Rev. Dr. Carla D. Sunberg, Rev. Dr. Diane Leclerc, Rev. Dr. Jacob Lett, Rev. Dr. Svetlana Khobnya, Rev. Dr. C.

  • Person In Psychology And Christianity

    $30.00

    Integral to a Christian worldview and to psychology are foundational questions about personhood: What characteristics are essential? What is our purpose? Do we naturally incline toward good or bad? Are we accountable for self and responsible for others?

    In The Person in Psychology and Christianity, developmental psychologist Marjorie Gunnoe demonstrates how the integration of theological and psychological perspectives offers a more comprehensive understanding of personhood than either approach alone. Gunnoe opens with a brief summary of biblical and theological perspectives on four organizing themes (human essence, purpose, moral tendency, and accountability). She then examines the intersection of this faith-based depiction with five theories of social development proposed by:

    *Erik Erikson
    *John Bowlby
    *B. F. Skinner
    *Albert Bandura
    *Evolutionary Psychology

    For each, Gunnoe includes a biography, a summary of the theorist’s broad perspective on personhood, and an analysis of the theorist’s stance on the four specific themes. This book is written for a general audience and suitable for undergraduate and graduate instruction.

  • Pastors Bookshelf : Why Reading Matters For Ministry

    $19.99

    It’s time to give pastors permission to read books beside the Bible-even fiction.

    Six months into his first senior pastorate, Austin Carty sat in his office reading-not the Bible, not a commentary, not a theological tract, but a novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky. As the minutes turned to hours, while he sat engrossed in this book, he noticed something: he began feeling uneasy. And then anxious. And then guilty. What would someone think if they opened the door and caught him reading fiction?

    For busy pastors (is there any other kind?), time spent reading feels hard to justify, especially when it’s not for sermon prep. But what if reading felt less like a luxury and more like a vocational responsibility-a spiritual practice that bore fruit in every aspect of ministry, from preaching to pastoral care to church leadership?

    Austin Carty believes that this is exactly how pastors ought to think about reading. The Pastor’s Bookshelf shows how worthwhile reading is more about formation than information and how, through reading, a pastor becomes a fuller, more enriched human being with a deeper capacity for wisdom and love, better equipped to understand and work for God’s kingdom.

  • Sanctify Them In Truth

    $16.95

    We live in a world that has become secularized, marked by ideology and partisanship. In such a world, how are we supposed to know what is right and wrong? As Christians, how are we supposed to approach the social issues of our day? With conflicting voices surrounding us, how can we hear and know the voice of Jesus Christ and receive His teachings?

    As Christians, we seek to live the way of the Lord Jesus, but that’s easier said than done. We want to demonstrate the Lord’s love and kindness to all men and women, but we’re faced with issues that cause us to discern what that looks like and how it’s virtuously expressed. We want to do what is right and good, but trying to determine right and wrong can at times be confusing and unsettling.

    The teaching authority of the Church is here to help. Appointed by Jesus Christ, our shepherds discern, interpret, and apply His teachings to our everyday lives.

    Sanctify Them in Truth, by Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, is an approachable, easy-to-read guide on eight of our most pressing social issues. The book applies divine wisdom and the guidance of the Church as it dissects oft-debated topics, presenting helpful teaching so that the reader knows how to navigate today’s contentious world with conviction and a clear conscience.

    The book answers:

    *Why is abortion above all other social issues in importance?
    *Can immigration be both moral and limited?
    *What is the Christian responsibility to the environment?
    *How are we called to approach the LGBTQ+ movement?
    *Is healthcare a human right?
    *When can artificial nutrition and hydration be suspended for a dying relative?
    *Is the Critical Race Theory within the bounds of justice?
    *Why can’t women be ordained priests?

    In all these matters, the truth of Christ is the foundation for any response. Fr. Kirby’s pastoral guidance helps to build that foundation in our intellects and in our wills, so that we can serve as a beacon for truth in a world that despises it.

  • God Of Deliverance Bible Study Book With Video Access

    $34.75

    “Blessed be the Lord, who has delivered you.” -Exodus 18:10

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

    The exodus of the Israelites shapes our understanding of the whole Bible, its themes reverberating all the way to Revelation. Exodus is the birth narrative of a nation unmistakably guided by the Great Deliverer.

    In this 10-session verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1-18, Jen Wilkin shows us that Israel’s story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God.

    $16.99

    “Let’s read the acrostic of Jesus together
    To help you to love him, so he is your treasure.
    We’ll read it, rap it, or sing it-it’s fun!
    Till Jesus comes back and his kingdom has come.
    He’s the Alpha and Omega, from A to Z;
    We pray you see from this book, ‘Jesus came for me!'”

    Catechism can be fun! The Acrostic of Jesus is a joy to read over and over again, and a brilliant tool to help kids gain a greater understanding of Christ. Young readers will learn “Christology”-the study of Jesus. The more we learn about Jesus, the more reasons we have to love him!

    By giving children an alphabetical list of the names and attributes of Jesus written with a rhyming beat, Jonathan Gibson and Timothy Brindle make The Acrostic of Jesus fun to read and simple to memorize. Each characteristic, A to Z, weaves together a beautiful picture of who Jesus is and why he came to earth.

    Using the alphabet to teach about God has a rich history in the Bible, especially in the Psalms and Lamentations. Several of the psalms-notably Psalm 119-begin with letters of the Hebrew alphabet, forming an acrostic that spells out the entire alphabet.

    The authors make learning Christology easy and enjoyable. Their book shows Jesus as he is, not “just to know about him more in our brains, but to know him as the God of glory who reigns.”

    Illustrated by C. S. Fritz, The Acrostic of Jesus is the second in the series, An Acrostic Theology for Kids, introducing children ages five to eleven to systematic theology uniquely on their age level.

  • Can Women Be Pastors

    $4.99

    Many new believers have questions about what it means to live as a Christian in the context of a local church, and pastors are looking for resources to pass along to their congregations to help them think biblically about the Christian life. Church Questions is a series by 9Marks that seeks to provide Christians with sound and accessible biblical teaching by answering common questions about church life. Each booklet offers biblical answers and practical applications with the goal of nurturing healthy church practice and commitment.

    In this Church Questions booklet, Greg Gilbert answers the question Can women be pastors? Gilbert explains why God reserved the office of pastor and elder exclusively for men by examining the structures of authority God established from the very beginning. Focusing on texts in Genesis 1-3 and 1 Timothy 2, Gilbert makes a case for why God’s original design for church leadership is not arbitrary, but part of his good and beautiful plan.

    The late 1930s were a tumultuous time in America. The country was on the verge of war with Germany. The economy was recovering from the Great Depression. Fear and anxiety were rampant. Enter Orson Welles, director of The Mercury Theatre on the Air, a new radio program. The show was the darling of critics but had failed to garner a large audience. Welles had no commercial sponsor, and he knew he had to do something drastic. So he bought the rights to H. G. Wells’s novel The War of the Worlds and had his screenwriter simplify it. He updated the setting from Victorian England to current-day New Jersey.

    Most Americans weren’t listening to Welles’s show when it started. They were listening to the more popular The Chase and Sanborn Hour. That week’s episode ended at 8:15 pm. So, around 8:16, thousands of people turned the dial and were shocked by realistic-sounding news alerts. Due to the unrest in Europe, people were used to having their radio shows interrupted with breaking news stories . . . all bad. What people heard that night were reports of aliens invading the Eastern Seaboard, complete with an emergency broadcast from an actor whose voice mimicked President Roosevelt’s with near-perfect accuracy.

    The result was pandemonium in the streets. Urbanites fled in terror. People took refuge in churches. Pregnant women went into labor early. People committed suicide. Looting broke out in the streets. It being America, men got out their guns and made ready to make a final stand.

    The story reveals that ideas can be powerful. As the Bible reveals, this is something our enemy understands all too well. Satan, “the father of lies,” wields the weapons of deception with perfect precision, striking at when we are most vulnerable. It is for this reason that Paul and other early church leaders liked following Jesus to a war. They encouraged believers in Christ to equip the armor of spiritual warfare, take a stand, and start to fight back against the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil.

    As followers of Jesus, we still called are to fight back against deceptive ideas (the devil) that play to disordered desires (the flesh) that are normalized in a sinful society (the world). This is the purpose of this study–to unmask our enemy and to develop a strategy to fight ba

  • Keeping Your Childrens Ministry On Mission

    $19.99

    Practical Strategies for Gospel-Centered Children’s Ministry

    When building a children’s ministry at a church, there is so much to consider: Which curriculum should we use? How many volunteers do we need? How do we keep parents in the loop? And that’s before we run into stalled check-in computers, missing activity sheets, and floors that need to be vacuumed. While all of the tasks of children’s ministry are important, leaders can get easily distracted with the everyday work of doing ministry and lose sight of the main focus–the gospel.

    Writing from personal ministry experience, Jared Kennedy shares a four-fold approach for gospel-centered, missional children’s ministry: hospitality, teaching, discipleship, and mission. This practical resource covers a variety of topics ranging from creating child protection policies to putting together lesson plans to catechism, helpful for children’s ministers and volunteers alike as they disciple children with the powerful message of the gospel.

    Nationally recognized speaker and church leader Jonathan Augustine demonstrates that the church is called and equipped to model reconciliation, justice, diversity, and inclusion.

    This book develops three uses of the term “reconciliation”: salvific, social, and civil. Augustine examines the intersection of the salvific and social forms of reconciliation through an engagement with Paul’s letters and uses the black church as an exemplar to connect the concept of salvation to social and political movements that seek justice for those marginalized by racism, class structures, and unjust legal systems. He then traces the reaction to racial progress in the form of white backlash as he explores the fate of civil reconciliation from the civil rights era to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

    This book argues that the church’s work in reconciliation can serve as a model for society at large and that secular diversity and inclusion practices can benefit the church. It offers a prophetic call to pastors, church leaders, and students to recover reconciliation as the heart of the church’s message to a divided world. Foreword by William H. Willimon and afterword by Michael B. Curry.

  • Churches And The Crisis Of Decline

    $27.99

    Congregations often seek to combat the crisis of decline by using innovation to produce new resources. But leading practical theologian Andrew Root shows that the church’s crisis is not in the loss of resources, it’s in the loss of life–and that life can only return when we remain open to God’s encountering presence.

    This new book, related to Root’s critically acclaimed Ministry in a Secular Age project, addresses the practical form the church must take in a secular age. Root uses two stories to frame the book: one about a church whose building becomes a pub and the other about Karl Barth. Root argues that Barth should be understood as a pastor with a deep practical theology that can help church leaders today.

    This book pushes the church to be a waiting community that recognizes that the only way for it to find life is to stop seeing the church as the star of its own story. Instead of resisting decline, congregations must remain open to divine action. Root offers a rich vision for the church’s future that moves away from an obsession with relevance and resources and toward the living God.

  • How To Thrive As A Pastors Wife

    $29.99

    Every pastor’s wife is a faithful servant and leader in her own right. She has great influence on her church, her community, her family, and her husband, and she finds joy in seeing God move in the lives of others. Yet she also faces unique challenges that too often go unnoticed and unaddressed. At times, a pastor’s wife may feel she can’t talk about her struggles even with those who are closest to her, which can leave her feeling alone, depleted, and misunderstood. She may settle for this way of living, but that’s not God’s desire for her.

    Christine Hoover knows firsthand the unique struggles and opportunities afforded a pastor’s wife–she’s been filling that role for more than 20 years. Coming alongside as an understanding friend, she offers encouragement and guidance to the struggling pastor’s wife, showing her how to make meaningful personal relationships with God, her husband, her children, her church community, and other women–relationships that will sustain her and help her thrive.

  • Who Moved My Neighborhood

    $18.00

    Neighborhoods are moving.

    While neighborhood changes can mean exciting and fresh opportunities for some, the experience can be vastly different for long-time residents. The rapid movement of people means changes in employment, economics, landscape, demographics, and the feel of a community. Churches often experience the painful impact of these shifts. Depending on how a church navigates through these changes determines if it will either live, die, or be reduced to a tragic existence on life support. Mark Strong knows the obstacles connected with gentrification and the challenges it brings. As a pastor, he led his church through its own moved neighborhood in Portland. Strong shares the frustrations, surprises, and joys that his church experienced as their neighborhood shifted, and he provides the roadmap that his own church used to navigate the change. Who Moved My Neighborhood? gives insight to churches that need to heal from the wounds of gentrification and economic change, and revamp their mission amidst an uncertain future. Using the discussion guide included in the book, churches can discuss their own moved neighborhood and explore the unique next steps that God has for their community. There is hope and a future for congregations that face a moved neighborhood.

  • Storycraft : The Art Of Spiritual Narrative

    $19.99

    In Storycraft, renowned author Walter Wangerin Jr. explores the power of narrative and storytelling to impact message, messenger, and hearer. Through preaching and teaching, the gospel comes alive–is incarnated–in the words, actions, and stories we tell. Well-crafted stories shape the relationship between tellers and listeners, between preachers and people. And in the telling, trust is established, faith is formed, and lives change. “A well-told story gives people eyes that see, ears that hear, tongues that taste, fingers that touch, and hearts that can be moved. But even before we start to create a story, and then to tell it, we should trust we have the abilities to craft it well enough to lead our listeners to the truth” (chapter 3).

    Wangerin draws on personal experience and a host of voices to make a case for the importance of embracing story as an essential tool for communicating the gospel in preaching and teaching settings. He turns to personal anecdotes, wisdom from ancient classics, and a provocative anthology of narrative types. Together, Wangerin’s reflections create a theology of story that shows how the Word of God takes on flesh in practiced speech.

    The sections of the book focus on the effect of spoken stories and the process of building a story step by step. It then provides several examples of stories for telling and expands on the importance of theatrics in preaching and teaching. In a very real sense, preachers and teachers of the gospel are actors. Motion and meaning flow not simply from words but from the embodied presentation of the preacher, who approaches the task as script writer, director, and actor.

  • Shepherding Like Jesus

    $17.99

    Spiritually bankrupt. Broken. Humble. Hungry. Sympathetic. Pure. Reconciling. Enduring. These are not the words that describe the typical picture of the modern-day successful American pastor, but these are the words Jesus said should characterize the lives of his twelve disciples. In the beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus paints a very clear picture of eight attitudes his disciples should embrace if they expect blessing.

    Many modern-day pastors cut a very different image than the biblical picture of a local church shepherd. We are supposed to be dreamers, visionaries, catalysts, ambitious, thought leaders, influencers, motivators, and change agents. Much time is spent crafting and sustaining our image, broadening our reach, and extending our platform. Poor in spirit? Mourning? Humble? Not so much. In many circles, the image of what a pastor is or does looks nothing like the picture Jesus paints for his disciples of the character that marks citizens of his kingdom.

    Shepherding like Jesus is a call to rebel against much of what our culture understands pastoral leadership to be and return to being the shepherd God has called pastors to be. It’s an invitation to recover the most essential element of pastoral ministry: the character of Christ.

  • Chasing After Wind

    $22.00

    One pastor’s journey from idealism, through disillusionment, to an acceptance of grace

    After forty years as a Presbyterian pastor, Douglas Brouwer wondered if he had spent his life, as the author of Ecclesiastes laments, “chasing after wind.” What did all the hard work on evenings and weekends and holidays, away from his family, amount to? What was there to make of the long string of petty conflicts and the overwhelming feeling of disillusionment? And in the current age of shrinking mainline churches, what could he point to as the end result of his decades in ministry?

    Chasing after Wind will resonate with pastors everywhere who went into ministry to do lifechanging work for God and ended up spending most of their time managing the parking situation outside the church, fielding parishioner complaints about the color of the sanctuary carpet (or, in Brouwer’s case, the color of his shoes), and endlessly fundraising for mission projects and building maintenance. In telling his story, Brouwer comes to recognize that the most meaningful parts of his career–the “holy bits,” as he calls them–were in unexpected moments where everything was stripped away but the mysterious work of God. Recounting these times of curious joy and shared mourning, he demonstrates how a pastor can find grace and peace in looking back on a life in ministry.

  • Wait Is This Racist

    $22.00

    Wait-Is This Racist? offers a “be-it-yourself” guide to anti-racism for churches by examining all operations of church life so that churches and church leaders can create a workable action plan to truly become more justice-oriented organizations.

    A “Be-It-Yourself” Guide to Anti-racism for Churches and Church Leaders

    Whether you have been an ally for years or just recently opened your eyes to racial injustice, guiding your predominantly white church toward anti-racism is a daunting task. Where do you even begin? White churches especially feel an urgency to respond but at the same time suffer a sense of overwhelmingness and futility, as if no one action, sermon series, or service project will solve the problem of racism in America. And they’re right. Instead, we must begin to look deeply at our organizations-our traditions, our ministries, our leadership, our ways of making decisions, our ways of interacting with the world beyond the church-to identify and address implicit biases and to discover how white pseudo-supremacy has been encoded into our way of “doing church.”

  • Marriage Book Revised And Updated

    $19.99

    Today we are facing a global crisis when it comes to families. Marriages are under more pressure than ever. Many children are growing up without experiencing the security of their parents’ love and commitment-and as a result are finding it harder to receive God’s unconditional love. There is an urgent need to invest in marriage and family life, for strong societies are built on strong families, and strong families are built on strong marriages.

    The Marriage Book, developed by Nicky and Sila Lee of Alpha, has been revised and updated to address these needs and provides practical tools to help couples at every stage of their relationship. Along with the companion seven-session Marriage Course, this resource will help couples:

    *Better understand each other’s needs
    *Communicate more effectively
    *Grow closer by learning methods to resolve conflicts
    *Recover from the way they may have hurt each other
    *Recognize how their upbringing has affected their relationship
    *Improve relationships with parents and in-laws

    The Marriage Book is based on a Christian understanding of love and serves to strengthen marriages within the church while, at the same time, being accessible for all couples from any cultural background. Full of practical advice, it will help couples prepare, build, and even mend their marriages.

  • Preaching Life Changing Sermons

    $16.99

    A how-to guide for preparing and delivering Spiritfilled, biblical messages that make an impact

    Being called to preach is a tremendous commission. In Preaching Life-Changing Sermons, Jesse L. Nelson shares a simple process for effective expository sermon preparation and delivery, flavored with insights from his life in ministry and academic work. Those with teaching and preaching responsibilities with little to no seminary training will learn practical steps they can use today in their ministry.

    *Seek the Spirit
    *Select the Scripture
    *Study the Scripture
    *Structure the Sermon
    *Speak in the Spirit
    *Share the Savior

    Handling God’s Word rightly through prayer, sermon preparation, and sermon delivery sets the stage for people to absorb the message. When the Spirit moves as Scripture speaks, souls are changed–and the call to preach becomes an exciting, transformative adventure.

  • Live No Lies Study Guide With DVD

    $49.99

    The late 1930s were a tumultuous time in America. The country was on the verge of war with Germany. The economy was recovering from the Great Depression. Fear and anxiety were rampant. Enter Orson Welles, director of The Mercury Theatre on the Air, a new radio program. The show was the darling of critics but had failed to garner a large audience. Welles had no commercial sponsor, and he knew he had to do something drastic. So he bought the rights to H. G. Wells’s novel The War of the Worlds and had his screenwriter simplify it. He updated the setting from Victorian England to current-day New Jersey.

    Most Americans weren’t listening to Welles’s show when it started. They were listening to the more popular The Chase and Sanborn Hour. That week’s episode ended at 8:15 pm. So, around 8:16, thousands of people turned the dial and were shocked by realistic-sounding news alerts. Due to the unrest in Europe, people were used to having their radio shows interrupted with breaking news stories . . . all bad. What people heard that night were reports of aliens invading the Eastern Seaboard, complete with an emergency broadcast from an actor whose voice mimicked President Roosevelt’s with near-perfect accuracy.

    The result was pandemonium in the streets. Urbanites fled in terror. People took refuge in churches. Pregnant women went into labor early. People committed suicide. Looting broke out in the streets. It being America, men got out their guns and made ready to make a final stand.

    The story reveals that ideas can be powerful. As the Bible reveals, this is something our enemy understands all too well. Satan, “the father of lies,” wields the weapons of deception with perfect precision, striking at when we are most vulnerable. It is for this reason that Paul and other early church leaders liked following Jesus to a war. They encouraged believers in Christ to equip the armor of spiritual warfare, take a stand, and start to fight back against the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil.

    As followers of Jesus, we still called are to fight back against deceptive ideas (the devil) that play to disordered desires (the flesh) that are normalized in a sinful society (the world). This is the purpose of this study–to unmask our enemy and to develop a strategy to fight back by living out the truth we believe.

    This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.

  • End Of The Age Study Guide

    $18.99

    There seems to be a particular urgency in the prophetic doom-saying of our modern world . . . a greater sense of somberness. Perhaps this is because end-of-the-world scenarios have gone from Hollywood fodder to real life. Rather than feeling farfetched, the end of the world now seems almost a given for most people. A matter of when rather than if.

    In The End of the Age, New York Times bestselling author and pastor John Hagee uses Scripture as a guide to count down the prophetic events that must occur before that moment when every person must face God on Judgment Day. The pages of God’s Word offer a window into the end of history–what Scripture calls the end of the age (Matthew 13:49).

    The goal of this study is to look through that window together–not necessarily to make specific predictions about people and places, but to gain wisdom and perspective from the Author of history. In the process, we will see what God has in store for the future so that we can remain ready, speak boldly, and live faithfully to the end.

  • Divine Art Of Dying

    $21.00

    The Divine Art of Dying explores the time when individuals facing a life-limiting illness make critical decisions about how they will live until they die. Authors Karen Speerstra and Herbert Anderson teamed up to write this book shortly before Speerstra’s death. Their hope was that this book would be a gift to help people who are irreversibly ill (and their friends and family) navigate the perilous journey to the point at which one decides to discontinue curative treatment and turn toward death. The book includes reflections from Speerstra’s hospice journal and essays written jointly by Speerstra and Anderson on themes that include learning to wait, letting go, giving gifts, and telling stories.

    Karen’s experiential and moving reflections are woven together with Anderson’s pastoral insights gleaned from years of teaching, writing, and lecturing on death, dying, and bereavement, as well as practicing hospital chaplaincy and pastoral care. Together they have created a deeply profound and practical book that aims to empower people who are dying to live as fully as they can until life’s end, and to help those who care for them to share this journey with compassion and hope.

    Several reflections by Speerstra’s friends and family are included along with sidebars describing divine-human virtues. Suggestions for caregivers are provided at the end of each chapter.

  • Real People Real Faith

    $18.99

    The characters in Scripture are often portrayed as one-dimensional–as caricatures instead of human beings with real needs, authentic pain, and compelling fears. When their problems are viewed as one-dimensional, so is their faith. Approaching biblical characters in this way can inhibit listeners’ ability to hear the biblical witness as relevant to their own lives and can minimize the impact of Scripture on their faith journey.

    Real People, Real Faith provides practical tools to portray biblical characters as multidimensional human beings who encountered and journeyed with God. Placing high value on historical, cultural, and scriptural contexts, Cindy Halvorson demonstrates techniques for generating holistic characters, particularly by exploring archetypical human reactions and spiritual longings. She shows how the preacher can use this method to reimagine the biblical characters, present figures with whom listeners relate and empathize, and draw portraits of real people whose relationship with God is in many ways like listeners’ own–people with whom they may sojourn and grow.

    When listeners are touched by a biblical character’s story and shown how their relationship with God was transformed, they too may experience the Divine’s love and care for them.

  • How Beautiful The World Could Be

    $22.99

    Meditations on ordinary life as part of a larger story

    “We human beings are creatures of time and space,” writes Frederick Bauerschmidt. “We have no choice but to find ourselves at a particular place in a particular moment.” Fortunately, as Christians, we worship a God who became embodied and lived among us-the timeless Word who became the Word in time. Thus, it is no contradiction for us to expect to find our stories in the larger story of God’s ongoing dealings with the world.

    This truth is nowhere more evident than in preaching, which, of necessity, speaks to particular occasions. Throughout these thirty-eight homilies, Bauerschmidt finds the truth of Scripture refracted through the lenses of current events from the past decade-including the coronavirus pandemic-as well as the seasons of the liturgical year and momentous individual occasions like baptisms, weddings, and funerals. His advice and examples will help preachers heed Paul’s urging to be on point and persuasive “in season and out of season.” All readers will be joyfully reminded of how beautiful the world is when seen in its larger context, illuminated by the light of eternity.

  • Crazy Faith Workbook

    $18.99

    Will you be remembered as a person who claimed to follow God but liked to play it safe? Or as a person who lived your life out on the limb and trusted God enough to act with crazy faith? Noah looked crazy when he started building the ark . . . until it started raining. It was crazy for Moses to lead a nation of people into the desert . . . until the Red Sea parted. It was crazy to believe a fourteen-year-old virgin would give birth to the Son of God . . . until Mary held Jesus in her arms.

    There are many things that seem normal today that at one point in time seemed crazy. Smartphones, Wi-Fi, and even the electric light bulb were all groundbreaking, history-making inventions that started out as crazy ideas. Our see-it-to-believe-it generation tends to have a hard time exercising true faith–one that steps out, takes action, and sees mountain-moving results. Many of us would rather play it safe and stand on the sidelines. But it’s crazy faith that helps us see God move and reveals his promises.

    In the Crazy Faith Workbook, which accompanies the book of the same name, bestselling author and pastor Michael Todd reveals how to step out in faith and dive into the purposeful life of trusting God for the impossible. Even if we have to start with baby faith or maybe faith, we can become empowered to let go of our lazy faith, trust God through our hazy faith, and learn to live a lifestyle of crazy faith.

    Lessons include:

    1. It’s Only Crazy Until It Happens
    2. Baby Faith
    3. Maybe Faith
    4. Waiting Faith
    5. Wavy Faith

  • Last Supper On The Moon Study Guide With DVD

    $49.99

    This Study Guide with DVD includes:

    *DVD and individual access to 6 streaming video sessions
    *Discussion and reflection questions with video notes
    *Personal study between sessions
    *Leader’s Guide

    In the summer of 1969, Buzz Aldrin had a mission. His goal was to fly 240 million miles from earth and, along with fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong, be the first to walk on the moon. But moments before that historic step, Aldrin poured a specially prepared drink into a cup and partook of a sacred celebration that had first occurred two thousand years before.

    The lunar Last Supper was full of meaning, just as it had been when Jesus himself took of the elements and acknowledged his calling and purpose. But the significance didn’t end there. Today, as we remember the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, followed by his resurrection, we are reminded that what seemed to be an end became the genesis of everything–including the rescue and restoration of anyone who calls on Jesus’ name.

    In this six-session study, bestselling author and pastor Levi Lusko journeys back in time and forward in hope, using the 1969 lunar mission as an analogy of the metamorphosis that was unleashed by the man from Galilee. Along the way, he uncovers the remarkable “seven statements” that Jesus made from the cross–words that provide us everything we need in the chaos of our world to conquer judgment, persecution, anxiety, and pain.

    This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.

  • Find Your People Curriculum Kit

    $73.99

    Never in the history of civilization have we been more connected and felt more alone. We are all so lonely. What if fundamentally the ways we have set up our lives is broken? We’ve withdrawn rather than moved through it. We want supper clubs and friends, instead of war partners. We have a wrong view of community.

    This 7-session video Bible study begins with a look at the original community in Genesis, the Trinity, and the creation of people to see what God had planned for us all along. We will also discover throughout the study the five life patterns required to build deep, connected relationships:

    *Proximity
    *Shared Mission
    *Transparency
    *Accountability
    *Consistency

    The seven sessions include:

    *Week 1: Introduction / God’s Plan It is not good for man to be alone. (Creation)

    *Week 2: Shame / The Disruption of Community Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. (Shame)

    *Week 3: Sitting Around the Fire / Proximity I will make My dwelling among you. (God’s Presence)

    *Week 4: Working Together / Shared Mission Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others. (Jesus and the Disciples)

    *Week 5: Open Doors / Transparency And all who believed were together and had all things in common. (Acts)

    *Week 6: Tribal Elders / Accountability Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (The Church Grows)

    *Week 7: Meals Together / Consistency Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. (The Kingdom of God / New Heavens)

  • 3:16 Study Guide With DVD Updated Edition

    $49.99

    In this updated classic, bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado unpacks the meaning behind John 3:16, one of the best-known and most-beloved passages in the Bible. This simple verse came out of an unusual conversation that Jesus had under the cover of night with a Pharisee named Nicodemus. From the start, Nicodemus made it clear he inhabited a land of good efforts, sincere gestures, and hard work. Give God your best, his philosophy said, and God does the rest. Jesus’ response? Your best won’t do. Your works don’t work. Unless you are born again, you can’t even see what God is doing.

    Born again. The word born, by definition, implies a passive act. The enwombed child contributes nothing to the delivery. Postpartum celebrations applaud the work of the mother who does the delivery. And the Greek term that Jesus used for again implies that the one who did the work the first time will repeat it. In other words, the original Creator will re-create his creation! Born: God exerts the effort. Again: God restores the beauty. We don’t try again. We need, not the muscle of self, but a miracle of God.

    The thought bewildered Nicodemus. “How can this be?” he asked. Jesus answered by leading him to the Hope diamond of the Bible: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” A twenty-six-word parade of hope: beginning with God, ending with life, and urging us to do the same. A verse brief enough to write on a napkin or memorize in a moment . . . yet solid enough to weather 2,000 years of storms and questions. As this study will reveal, the heart of the human problem is the heart of the human. And God’s treatment for the human heart is prescribed in John 3:16: “He loves. He gave. We believe. We live.”

    The five sessions include:

    1. The Most Famous Conversation in the Bible
    2. Hope for the Hard Heart
    3. The Heart He Offers
    4. Heaven’s “Whoever” Policy

  • God And The Transgender Debate

    $16.99

    In the West, more and more Christians are coming across the topic of gender identity in their everyday lives. Legislative changes are impacting more and more areas of life, including education, employment and state funding, with consequences for religious liberty, free speech and freedom of conscience that affect everyone. So it’s a crucial moment to consider how to engage lovingly, thoughtfully and biblically with one of the most explosive cultural discussions of our day.

    This warm, faithful and compassionate book that helps Christians understand what the Bible says about gender identity has been updated and expanded throughout, and now includes a section on pronoun usage and a new chapter challenging some of the claims of the transgender activist movement.

    Andrew T. Walker also answers questions such as: What is transgender and gender fluidity? How should churches respond? What does God’s word actually say about these issues?

  • Called To Preach

    Through in-depth biblical analysis and inspiring examples from church history, Steven J. Lawson paints a picture of God’s glory magnified through faithful preaching, reclaiming the high ground of biblical preaching for the next generation. With helpful advice and practical guidance gleaned from 50 years in ministry, Lawson helps aspiring preachers know if they are called to preach; understand the qualifications for ministry; and develop, improve, and deliver strong expository sermons that illuminate the Word of God in a dark world.

  • Resilient Pastor : Leading Your Church In A Rapidly Changing World

    $22.99

    How can pastors become resilient in a rapidly changing world? Is it possible to love well and lead faithfully? In the wake of crises that have exposed and accelerated massive cultural shifts, we see more clearly the seismic shifts of post-Christendom, the surging storms of a new paganism and pluralism, and the scattered debris of the cultural aftermath.

    Drawing on new research from the Barna Group, Scripture, and church history, pastor, theologian, and researcher Glenn Packiam addresses some of the most pressing questions for today’s leaders, including:
    – What is a pastor’s calling and vocation?
    – How do church leaders regain credibility in a disillusioned world?
    – How do church leaders cultivate a deeper life with God?
    – How do pastors develop meaningful relationships?
    – Why does the church gather in worship? Does it still matter if we do?
    – How do we actually make disciples in this new landscape?
    – How can we face the challenges to unity presented by nationalism and racism?
    – What is the church’s mission in the world?
    – How do we welcome the presence and power of God in our churches?

    This book is for all who are burdened by the challenges facing the church as well as the turbulence of our times. With infographics, enlightening data, and insights from other ministry leaders, this book is the perfect resource for church leaders who want to cultivate resilience in their ministry today.

  • Dies Irae : The Sequence Of The Mass For The Dead

    $19.95

    A sign will appear in the sky before the glorious return of Christ the King. Angelic trumpets will sound, and the dead will arise. Souls who humbly wait in expectation will rejoice and enter into heavenly rest. Those who reject God will cry in terror, as they enter the eternal flames.

    “Dies Irae” (day of wrath), called “a musical gem even without the music” and “the giant among hymns,” was composed by Thomas of Celano, a companion and the first biographer of St. Francis of Assisi. First written in Latin, it has been translated hundreds of times into many languages and is regarded even by secular experts as one of the greatest masterpiece of Western poetry.

    In this reprint of his classic work, Msgr. Nicholaus Gihr elucidates Dies Irae: The Sequence of the Mass for the Dead for devotional reading and meditation. Although we do not know when the end of the world and the final judgment will come, each soul will face a particular judgment upon his death. Drawing from the Bible, the Liturgy of the Church, and the writings of the saints, Msgr. Gihr grandiloquently reflects upon the beauty and insights of this renowned lyric poem and chant, allowing the reader to dwell upon the soul’s final journey in a way that is both convicting and inspiring. Msgr. Gihr’s reflections challenge and spur us on; amid pain and suffering, his words comfort and uplift.

    As “the Day” draws near, Rev. Gihr encourages readers to:

    *keep watch, as in Advent, and cast off sloth

    *fulfill even the smallest duties with intentionality

    *guard against idle conversations and indifference

    *reflect upon the things of Heaven

    *remember that thoughts, actions, and inactions will be revealed

    *repent, serve the poor, and show and receive God’s mercy

    *abandon lukewarmness, pray for others, fast, and do penance

    *adore in fear and trembling now

    *ask the intercession of Our Lady, the angels, and the saints now … to enjoy their friendship later!

    Dies Irae reminds us that the future of the just is hopeful, since God will re-create the earth and transform our lowly bodies into glorified bodies. Although the day of reckoning must inspire a just

  • Colossians And Philemon

    $33.99

    Colossians and Philemon were penned at roughly the same time to an overlapping set of recipients. Paul, writing out of great concern, urges his fellow believers to make Jesus Christ the foundation of their lives. By expounding on the divine person, finished work, and exalted position of Christ, the apostle entreats his readers to stand against false teaching, pursue reconciliation, and be united with Christ. In Colossians and Philemon, Copenhaver and Arthurs combine exegetical precision with homiletical care, helping preachers and Bible teachers take Paul’s message–a plea for walking together in a manner worthy of Christ–to the church today.

  • Walk : Five Essential Practices Of The Christian Life

    $18.99

    Examine five essential spiritual practices rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God.

    How do we walk with Christ-daily follow him, grow in him, and faithfully serve him?

    In the Gospels, Jesus modeled for us the Christian spiritual life. The apostles taught it in their writings. And the Church has, through the last 2,000 years, sought to pursue this Christian spiritual life.

    In The Walk, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church.

    In each chapter, Hamilton explores one of these practices, its New Testament foundation, and what it looks like to pursue this practice daily in our personal life and together in the life of the church. Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith.

    Additional components for a six-week adult study include a comprehensive Leader Guide and a DVD featuring the engaging teachings of author and pastor Adam Hamilton. Also available are resources for children and youth.
