  • Thriving With Stone Age Minds

    $20.00

    What does God’s creation of humanity through the process of evolution mean for how we think about human flourishing?

    The emerging field of evolutionary psychology remains controversial, perhaps especially among Christians. Yet according to Justin Barrett and Pamela Ebstyne King it can be a powerful tool for understanding human nature and our distinctively human purpose. In Thriving with Stone Age Minds, Barrett and King provide an introduction to evolutionary psychology, explaining the importance of key concepts such as hyper-sociality, information gathering, and self-control. They then combine insights from evolutionary psychology with resources from the Bible and Christian theology, all focused on the question, What is human flourishing? When we understand how humans still bear the marks of our evolutionary past, new light shines on some of the most puzzling features of our minds, relationships, and behaviors. One key insight of evolutionary psychology is how humans both adapt to and in turn alter our particular environments, or “niches.” In fact, we change our world faster than our minds can adapt–and then gaps in our fitness emerge. In effect, humans are now attempting to thrive in modern contexts with Stone Age minds. By integrating scientific evidence with wisdom from theological anthropology, Barrett and King argue, we can learn to close up nature-niche gaps and thrive, becoming more what God has created us to be.

  • Relational Spirituality : A Psychological-Theological Paradigm For Transfor

    $45.00

    Human beings are fundamentally relational-we develop, heal, and grow through relationships. Integrating insights from psychology and theology, Todd W. Hall and M. Elizabeth Lewis Hall present a definitive model of spiritual transformation based on a relational paradigm, showing how transformation works practically in the context of relationships and community.

    As our society becomes more socially fragmented, many Christians feel disconnected and struggle to grow spiritually. Common models of spiritual transformation are proving inadequate to address “the sanctification gap.” In recent decades, however, a new paradigm of human and spiritual development has been emerging from multiple fields. It’s supported by a critical mass of evidence, all pointing to what psychologists Todd W. Hall and M. Elizabeth Lewis Hall call a relational revolution. In Relational Spirituality, Hall and Hall present a definitive model of spiritual transformation based on a relational paradigm. At its heart is the truth that human beings are fundamentally relational-we develop, heal, and grow through relationships. While many sanctification models are fragmented, individualistic, and lack a clear process for change, the relational paradigm paints a coherent picture of both process and goal, supported by both ancient wisdom and cutting-edge research. Integrating insights from psychology and theology, this book lays out the basis for relational spiritual transformation and how it works practically in the context of relationships and community. Relational Spirituality draws together themes such as trinitarian theology, historical and biblical perspectives on the imago Dei, relational knowledge, attachment patterns, and interpersonal neurobiology into a broad synthesis that will stimulate further dialogue across a variety of fields. Highlighting key characteristics of spiritual communities that foster transformation, Hall and Hall equip spiritual leaders and practitioners to more effectively facilitate spiritual growth for themselves and those they serve.

  • Positive Psychology In Christian Perspective

    $45.00

    Originally the field of psychology had a threefold mission: to cure mental illness, yes, but also to find ways to make life fulfilling for all and to maximize talent. Over the last century, a focus on mental illness has often been prioritized over studies of health, to the point that many people assume “psychologist” is just another way of saying “psychotherapist.” This book is about one attempt to restore the discipline’s larger mission.

    Positive psychology attends to what philosophers call “the good life.” It is about fostering strength and living well–about how to do a good job at being human. Some of that will involve cheerful emotions, and some of it will not. There are vital roles to be played by archetypal challenges such as those involving self-control, guilt, and grit, and even the terror of death enters into positive psychology’s vision of human flourishing. Charles Hackney connects this still-new movement to foundational concepts in philosophy and Christian theology. He then explores topics such as subjective states, cognitive processes, and the roles of personality, relationships, and environment, also considering relevant practices in spheres from the workplace to the church and even the martial arts dojo. Hackney takes seriously the range of critiques positive psychology has faced as he frames a constructive future for Christian contributions to the field.

  • Truth About Men

    $26.00

    In this cultural moment of discussions about sexual harrassment and assault, DeVon Franklin, bestselling author of The Wait and well-respected Christian leader, speaks out frankly and openly about why men act badly and how to change their behavior.

    Society encourages a strange dynamic: it says “boys will be boys,” “that’s just locker room talk” and “sow your oats,” but when men are unfaithful, abusive, or destructive, the same society that encouraged them to indulge their bad behavior now wonders, “how could you have done something like that?”

    In The Truth About Men, DeVon Franklin, the bestselling author and Hollywood producer whom Oprah Winfrey has called “a new kind of spiritual leader for our time,” speaks out about why men act badly and what we can do to help bring change, both on a personal and a societal level. He argues that the same discipline that drives men to excel in their professional lives needs to be applied to their private lives. He uses the analogy of a dog that needs to be trained as a means to explore why bad behavior persists and what can lead men to act against their vows, their integrity, and even their character. He argues that learning to tame the beast is an essential remedy for men who desire to be good men, and lays out a plan for how men can deal with the beast within them: by acknowledging it, holding it accountable with the support of other men, learning self-control, and submitting to God. He also provides practical solutions for how both men and women can encourage better behavior and how we, as a society, can expect better.

    This groundbreaking book is an informative, inspiring, and compelling look at a problem we are all wrestling with and offers a way forward for men and women alike.

    Most people have something that gnaws at them at night, a mess or unrealized dream somewhere in their lives that causes them to feel stuck, out of control, overwhelmed, incomplete, and dissatisfied.

  • Human Person : A Beginner’s Thomistic Psychology

    $34.95

    The Human Person presents a brief introduction to the human mind, the soul, immortality, and free will. While delving into the thought of Thomas Aquinas, it addresses contemporary topics, such as skepticism, mechanism, animal language research, and determinism. Steven J. Jensen probes the primal questions of human nature. Are human beings free or determined? Is the capacity to reason distinctive to human beings or do animals also have some share of reason? Have animals really been taught to use language?

    The Human Person touches on topics that bear upon the very fabric of the universe. Are human beings merely well-ordered collections of chemicals or do they have a soul that gives them life and understanding? Is there any element in human beings that survives death? Can human minds get in touch with the objective world or just forever dwell in the domain of their subjective experiences? The book closes by considering the most fundamental question of all: are human beings merely cosmic accidents with no purpose or is there some meaning to human life?

    In this book, beginners of philosophy will learn the wonders of their own nature by studying Aquinas’s thought on the human person.

  • War And Moral Injury

    $70.00

    Moral Injury has been called the “signature wound” of today’s wars. It is also as old as the human record of war, as evidenced in the ancient war epics of Greece, India, and the Middle East. But what exactly is Moral Injury? What are its causes and consequences? What can we do to prevent or limit its occurrence among those we send to war? And, above all, what can we do to help heal afflicted warriors?

    This landmark volume provides an invaluable resource for those looking for answers to these questions. Gathered here are some of the most far-ranging, authoritative, and accessible writings to date on the topic of Moral Injury. Contributors come from the fields of psychology, theology, philosophy, psychiatry, law, journalism, neuropsychiatry, classics, poetry, and, of course, the profession of arms. Their voices find common cause in informing the growing, international conversation on war and war’s deepest and most enduring invisible wound. Few may want to have this myth-challenging, truth-telling conversation, but it is one we must have if we truly wish to help those we send to fight our wars.

  • Listening To Sexual Minorities

    $28.00

    Students arrive on campus with various boxes of belongings to unpack, some heavy, some tidy, some more valuable, some more private. For many students, two of these boxes could be labeled “My Faith” and “My Sexuality”-and these two can be among the most cumbersome to handle. How to balance the two without having to set one down? How to hold them both closely, both securely, but still move forward to settle in with new friends in a new environment? How to keep from dropping one or the other, spilling its embarrassing contents for all to see?

    Such can be the struggle for any student, but especially for any sexual minority who identifies or struggles with an LGB+ identity or same-sex attraction on a Christian college campus. For these students their faith and their sexuality often feel both tender and in acute tension. Who is God making them to be? What do they need to grow in to develop faithfully, and what might they need to leave behind? How can they truly flourish?

    The research team of Yarhouse, Dean, Stratton, and Lastoria draw on their decades of experience both in the psychology of sexual identity and in campus counseling to bring us the results of an original longitudinal study into what sexual minorities themselves experience, hope for, and benefit from. Rich with both quantitative and qualitative data, their book gives an unprecedented opportunity to listen to sexual minorities in their own words, as well as to observe patterns and often surprising revelations about life and personal development both on campus and after graduation.

    Listening to Sexual Minorities will be an indispensable resource not only for counselors and psychologists but also for faculty, student-development leaders, and administrators in higher education as well as leaders in the church and wider Christian community who want to create an intentional environment to hear from and contribute to the spiritual flourishing of all.

  • Think This Not That

    $14.99

    What we think about radically affects us body, soul, and spirit.

    Contrary to popular belief, circumstances do not determine our mood. Instead, our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors flow from our interpretations of events. In the mind, we give meaning to troubling events, and that meaning causes us emotional pain and turmoil.

    Philippians 4:8 challenges us to think about what is true, right, pure, and excellent, but it is not simply a charge to think positively. How we think actually changes how we respond to crises and difficult situations. Drawing on her experience as a clinical psychotherapist and a trauma survivor, Rita Schulte gives a prescription for better health and well-being that combines faith and science. Through a strong connection to God, mindfulness techniques, and target exercises, you can change toxic thinking patterns and rewire your brain to achieve optimum mental and physical health.

    Notes

    Additional Info
    “It is said that the true test of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable members.”

    As many as one in four girls and one in six boys experience sexual abuse during childhood, and it’s estimated that as many as half of the incidents are never reported. This means that countless millions in our societies, both children and adults, carry this complex, often hidden pain. What does the path to healing look like for survivors? And how can ministry leaders, pastors, and counselors best help them as they walk this difficult road?

    Drawing on both his own experience and his wife’s experience as survivors of childhood sexual abuse, minister and lecturer Tim Hein offers his expertise, practical guidance, and empathy-both for ministry leaders and for survivors themselves. How can we best respond when a survivor shares their secret with us? Where can survivors turn for encouragement when the road to recovery seems so long and lonely? Hein presents clinical data and resources alongside pastoral wisdom and care, addressing both psychological and spiritual aspects of sexual abuse.

    Both for those who have suffered sexual abuse and those in a position to help them, this book is a rich resource. Filled with both sober truths and the hope of Christ, it calls survivors to take courage and walk unafraid down the road of healing.

  • How To Think

    $24.00

    A Currency Title

    As a celebrated cultural critic and a writer for national publications like The Atlantic and Harper’s, Alan Jacobs has spent his adult life belonging to communities that often clash in America’s culture wars. And in his years of confronting the big issues that divide us-political, social, religious-Jacobs has learned that many of our fiercest disputes occur not because we’re doomed to be divided, but because the people involved simply aren’t thinking.

    Most of us don’t want to think, Jacobs writes. Thinking is trouble. Thinking can force us out of familiar, comforting habits, and it can complicate our relationships with like-minded friends. Finally, thinking is slow, and that’s a problem when our habits of consuming information (mostly online) leave us lost in the spin cycle of social media, partisan bickering, and confirmation bias.

    In this smart, endlessly entertaining book, Jacobs diagnoses the many forces that act on us to prevent thinking-forces that have only worsened in the age of Twitter, “alternative facts,” and information overload-and he also dispels the many myths we hold about what it means to think well. (For example: It’s impossible to “think for yourself.”)

    Drawing on sources as far-flung as novelist Marilynne Robinson, basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain, British philosopher John Stuart Mill, and Christian theologian C.S. Lewis, Jacobs digs into the nuts and bolts of the cognitive process, offering hope that each of us can reclaim our mental lives from the impediments that plague us all. Because if we can learn to think together, maybe we can learn to live together, too.

  • Much Ado About Something

    $20.99

    Who, from a scientific perspective, could possibly accept the idea of a virgin birth, or any of Christ’s miracles, much less his death and resurrection? Only a child (Luke 18:17) or a Christian possessed of a considerable degree of maturity (1 Cor 13:11). This enthralling book reveals how a person can develop from childhood innocence to spiritual maturity via a series of psychological stages, through constant (but often unconscious) communication with the Holy Spirit. Growth occurs most often through adversity and the emotional healing that accompanies acceptance of God’s Will. Such experiences allow people to let go of less immature attachments and aversions, and to be free to live with increasing spontaneity “in the moment’, attuned to the sufferings of others, both wiser and more compassionate.

  • I Cant Do Life

    From a cycle of failure to the first glimmer of hope, one woman’s story of recovery and redemption, an inch at a time.

    A little girl grows up in a dysfunctional home with alcoholic parents that appears perfect on the outside, but leaves her with severe lack of self-worth, and a gaping need for acceptance and love.

    Reeling from sexual abuse, she turns to drugs and illicit relationships for affirmation and a sense of belonging. Scarred from an abortion, then trapped in a loveless marriage, she descends deeper and deeper into alcoholism and drug abuse.

    Forced into recovery, she fails again and again, each time hurting her family more deeply.
    Then, buried childhood memories of God cause her to ask for His help.

  • Lovingkindness : Realizing And Practicing Your True Self

    $15.00

    Lovingkindness–acting with selfless compassion toward others–is a widely recognized virtue that is honored across world religions. But what does it look like in practice? How can we more fully and consistently live this calling, to be a loving presence in the world? This book explores the promise and challenge of living with lovingkindness, a concept with deep ancient roots. It offers a framework of twelve dimensions along which people make choices in daily life. Short chapters explore each of these dimensions of lovingkindness, including opportunities for practice. The structure is suitable for self-study or for use in discussion groups. In truth, lovingkindness is not something that you can achieve or perfect. It is more like a star by which to guide your life journey, a distant goal toward or away from which you move through countless choices that you make each day. This book is about that journey.

    The God-Shaped Brain Study Guide

    Additional Info
    What you believe about God actually changes your brain. Brain research in neuroscience has found that our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical, mental, and spiritual health. Mind and body are interrelated, and we are designed for healthy relationships of love and trust. When we understand God as good and loving, we flourish. Unfortunately, many of us have distorted images of God and mostly think of him in fearful, punitive ways. This leads us into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. But our lives can change when God renews our minds with a truer picture of him. Psychiatrist Tim Jennings unveils how our brains and bodies thrive when we have a healthy understanding of who God is. He dispels common misconceptions about God and shows how different God concepts affect the brain differently. Our brains can adapt, change, and rewire with redeemed thinking that frees us from unnecessary pain and suffering. Discover how neuroscience and Scripture come together to bring healing and transformation to our lives. This expanded edition now includes a study guide for individual reflection or group discussion, with questions for learning from Scripture, science and nature, and experience.

  • Divine Imprint : Finding God In The Human Mind

    $20.99

    The so-called New Atheists receive much publicity, but their demand to be provided with incontrovertible evidence for the existence of God, and that such evidence must come from a scientific examination of the physical world, is the wrong approach. As many theologians and philosophers have claimed, the search for God begins by looking inwards into oneself. But what does that mean? Surely looking inwards we find nothing but the contents of one’s own mind. Where does God come in? It is by the examination of the contents of the mind and trying to understand how they got there that one seeks clues about God’s influence on the mind. Our consciousness bears a resemblance to that Consciousness from which it is directly derived. It bears his imprint. It is from the characteristics of that imprint we get to know what kind of God we are dealing with. Only then can we be open to realizing how that other creation of his, the physical world, also bears his imprint.

  • Witness Of Religion In An Age Of Fear

    $18.00

    We live in a world driven by fear. But should we allow fear to play such a large role in our lives? According to the religions of the world, the answer is no.

    In this helpful and illuminating book, Michael Kinnamon challenges readers to consider why we find ourselves in this age of fear and what we can do about it. Drawing on support from a diversity of religious traditions and teachers, Kinnamon argues that religious faith is the best way to combat a culture of fear. He explores fear in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the American political scene, and he shares courageous examples of individuals from different religions working for peace.

    Perfect for individuals or group study, this book helps readers understand the manipulative power of fear and how religious beliefs call us to reject fear at all costs. A study guide is included.

  • Competing Fundamentalisms : Violent Extremism In Christianity Islam And Hin

    $35.00

    Why do certain groups and individuals seek to do harm in the name of God? While studies often claim to hold the key to this frightening phenomenon, they seldom account for the crucial and growing role that religious fundamentalism plays not just in radical Islam but also in the world’s two other largest religions: Christianity and Hinduism. As the first book to examine violent extremism in the world’s three largest religions together, Sathianathan Clarke draws on studies in sociology, psychology, culture, and economics to paint a richer portrait of this potent force in modern life. Clarke argues that religious fundamentalism is fueled and driven by the forces of globalization; that religious fundamentalists have more in common with their counterparts across religious lines than they do with the members of their own religions; and that religious fundamentalism becomes a surrogate religion, replacing in all three cases the religious tradition from which it arose.

    In light of the challenges these competing fundamentalisms pose to the peace and stability of the world, Clarke proposes that Christians, Muslims, and Hindus refuse to allow modern fundamentalism to define their ancient religious traditions. Instead, he calls for a rejection of fundamentalism’s zero-sum world in favor of a serious and sustained engagement with the members of all the world’s religions, as well as those of no religion. Readers will gain new and important insight into the problem of religious extremism and violence by seeing how it works in the world’s three largest religions.

  • Power Of 100

    $19.99

    Too broke or broken, too old or young, too stressed or busy to make your dreams reality? Join Shaun King and walk the transformative path to overcoming adversity and achieving success as he reveals practical steps to a life of unlimited possibility.
    Have you lost a job that you loved, or never even gotten the chance to start? Are you in a rut of mediocre, status-quo living, too tired and stressed to find a way out? Do you wonder whatever happened to the dreams you once dared to dream?
    Shaun King has been there, and he wants you to know that it s not too late. Shaun knows firsthand what it s like to see your dreams fade away right before your eyes; he s lived through brutal spinal surgeries, had to survive on food stamps, worked four jobs at once, and he nearly died in a car accident that required over 400 stitches on his face alone. But he s also emerged stronger and overcome the odds to become a successful businessman, social media pioneer, and humanitarian. Now he wants you to know that you can still take the dreams God has placed in your heart, craft them into goals, and actually make those goals into your reality.

    In an entertaining and conversational style, Shaun King shares the trials, research, and years of practice that have helped him form practical principles and effective strategies for overcoming adversity and achieving success. He encourages you to grasp the truth that your life has more potential than you understand; you just need to face your weakest points and unlock that potential.

  • Out Of The Depths I Cried

    $19.00

    Christopher L. Bishop was diagnosed with Major Depression, PTSD, and SAD at the beginning of 2014. After three hospitalizations and a two-month outpatient treatment program, he finally had developed an idea of what he needed to do to get better. He kept looking for a guide to the whole recovery process in order to better understand how to reclaim his life and move forward. Since there wasn’t one to be found, he decided to make one as he was going through the process to document and build upon his experiences and the things that he had to learn the hard way.

    Out of the Depths I Cried is a step-by-step guide to managing depression. It answers questions about how to ask for help and about how prayer (as he now understands it) can help one grow through depression. Learn about the tools that he placed in his backpack to carry on the road of recovery. People diagnosed with the mental disorder and “normal” people alike can benefit from these tools to manage depression and grow closer to God through prayer.

  • Controlling Power Of The Mind

    $18.99

    According to James N. Watkins, “A river is able to cut through a rock not because it is powerful, but because of its persistency.” Persistent use of the brain is a great asset for both human and societal development. The book unearths what the best brain can do, especially when it is subjected to the authority of God’s Word, and is inspired and led by the Holy Spirit. As you read the book, you will find hidden revelation of the controlling power of the mind. In view of this, the author asks the question: What is the wealthiest place in the world in relation to the mind? The author lifts high the “banner” of the best brain, saying, “Abundant natural resources do not necessarily develop a nation; best brains do. The controlling power of the mind is unimaginable and impacts our everyday lives. The time to renew your mind unto victory is NOW.

    This IS IT! The antidote, in a simple, easy-to-read format, to issues such as::
    Low self-esteem
    Negative thinking
    Fear of failure

    In the monotony of our very, busy lives, we often forget the simple principle that our thoughts determine our destiny. And it’s not until we hit a rough patch, that we decide we need to retool our life’s compass. In her book, Janice takes you on a journey that causes you to unearth a heart of gratitude that will provoke you to change the way that you perceive and live your life. If you are looking for an abundant and more fulfilled life, this book is for you. In her thirteen steps, Janice gives compelling reasons for changing your attitude and outlines specific details with quick and easy to implement strategies. These methods are vital in order to develop and maintain an “attitude of gratitude,” and to live a life of gratefulness. Here’s an excerpt from the book: “CHOOSE TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. On this journey we call “life,” if we don’t believe in ourselves, there is not much we can do or accomplish with this life we’ve been given. We will be stuck, immobilized, similar to being connected to a stake in the ground. Believing in ourselves is something we must all do. We must know there is something this current life has to offer us. Where does this belief come from? It comes from the value that we place on ourselves and our life. It comes from within.” If you’re interested in a better quality of life and are tired of your mood swings, bouts with depression, or your inability to experience true joy-this book was written with you in mind. As you turn the pages you will discover tips that you can implement immediately. You will find that being grateful can and will transform your life. It is the key that unlocks the door to a life of ultimate fulfillment and perpetual abundance. Review: From start to finish this is an inspiring, motivational pep talk delivered with love. The author’s tone is upbeat all the way through. The book is divided into steps such as “Never Give Up” and “Receive From Others,” and the author delves into each topic with lots of positive energy. If you’re feeling unmotivated, if you’re stuck, if you’re wondering what your purpose is, this book can help pick you up and get you unstuck. A great read with an appealing conversational tone.

  • Healing The Child Within

    $26.95

    Publisher Marketing: Have you ever heard of your inner child? Well, this is the classic book that started it all. In 1987, Charlie Whitfield’s breakthrough concept of the child within-that part of us which is truly alive, energetic, creative and fulfilled-launched the inner child movement. Healing the Child Within describes how the inner child is lost to trauma and loss, and how by recovering it, we can heal the fear, confusion and unhappiness of adult life. Eighteen years and more than a million copies sold later, Healing the Child Within is a perennial selling classic in the field of psychology. And it is even more timely today than it was in 1987. Recent brain research, particularly on the effects of trauma on the brain of developing children, has supported Whitfield’s intuitive understanding as a psychiatrist.

  • Bradshaw On The Family

    $32.95

    Based on the public television series of the same name, Bradshaw On: The Family is John Bradshaw’s seminal work on the dynamics of families that has sold more than a million copies since its original publication in 1988. Within its pages, you will discover the cause of emotionally impaired families. You will learn how unhealthy rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children, and the destructive effect this process has on our society. Using the latest family research and recovery material in this new edition, Bradshaw also explores the individual in both a family and societal setting. He shows you ways to escape the tyranny of family-reinforced behavior traps–from addiction and co-dependency to loss of will and denial–and demonstrates how to make conscious choices that will transform your life and the lives of your loved ones. He helps you heal yourself and then, using what you have learned helps you heal your family. Finally, Bradshaw extends this idea to our society: by returning yourself and your family to emotional health, you can heal the world in which you live. He helps you re-envision societal conflicts from the perspective of a global family, and shares with you the power of deep democracy: how the choices you make every day can affect–and improve–your world.

  • Lost Boy : A Foster Childs Search For The Love Of A Family

    $32.95

    Imagine a young boy who has never had a loving home. His only possesions are the old, torn clothes he carries in a paper bag. The only world he knows is one of isolation and fear. Although others had rescued this boy from his abusive alcoholic mother, his real hurt is just begining — he has no place to call home.

    This is Dave Pelzer’s long-awaited sequel to A Child Called “It”. In The Lost Boy, he answers questions and reveals new adventures through the compelling story of his life as an adolescent. Now considered an F-Child (Foster Child), Dave is moved in and out of five different homes. He suffers shame and experiences resentment from those who feel that all foster kids are trouble and unworthy of being loved just because they are not part of a “real” family.

    Tears, laughter, devastation and hope create the journey of this little lost boy who searches desperately for just one thing — the love of a family.

  • Child Called It

    $26.95

    This book chronicles the unforgettable account of one of the most severe child abuse cases in California history. It is the story of Dave Pelzer, who was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games–games that left him nearly dead. He had to learn how to play his mother’s games in order to survive because she no longer considered him a son, but a slave; and no longer a boy, but an “it.”Dave’s bed was an old army cot in the basement, and his clothes were torn and raunchy. When his mother allowed him the luxury of food, it was nothing more than spoiled scraps that even the dogs refused to eat. The outside world knew nothing of his living nightmare. He had nothing or no one to turn to, but his dreams kept him alive–dreams of someone taking care of him, loving him and calling him their son.

  • Psychology Of Christian Character Formation

    $44.99

    The Psychology of Christian Character Formation offers clergy and those preparing for ministry some of the potential riches provided by rapidly developing branches of contemporary scientific psychology of which they might otherwise be unaware. Joanna Collicutt, an experienced psychologist and theological educator, focuses on the psychology of character, virtue and spirituality. Furthermore, the psychology is not used to support training in pastoral ministry to others, but rather to support the reader’s own self-awareness and spiritual growth.
    Joanna Collicutt understands Christian formation as Christian communities and their members growing up into conformity with the character of Christ through the action of the Holy Spirit. This is explored in the three parts of the book: first, an exploration of the process of Christian formation that includes a detailed analysis of the character of Jesus of Nazareth; secondly some focused psychology aimed at supporting an informed self-awareness in the reader; finally – and the most lengthy section – a series of chapters devoted to using psychological insights to help cultivate the Christ-like characteristics identified in the first section.

This malicious labyrinth has impacted many lives, causing ignorance, broken homes, disrespectfulness, and poor health throughout the nation. I’m concentrating more on aiding blacks/African-Americans because this ethnic group statistically leads America in negative aspects of life, such as heart disease, poverty, broken homes, incarcerations, lack of education, etc.-and the fact that this system was directed toward African-Americans. Although all cultures and nationalities suffer from such downfalls because of such a melting pot society we live in, any man, woman, or child is capable of falling victim to Lynch’s negative behavioral application. Mankind, as a whole, needs an improvement.” About the Author Le Brown a.k.a. “Phenomenal Le” was born and raised in Florence, South Carolina. He currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.

  • Examples And Principles Of Psychology In The Bible

    $19.99

    The Bible contains instances, examples, and ideas of principles that can be found in modern psychology books. In fact, many of these principles that psychology has discovered could already be found in Scripture. This should not be considered unusual, since the Bible also contains economic and scientific principles, as well as principles from other disciplines in life. This book, however, is not about psychology based on the Bible or how the Bible is a type of psychology book. It is not about how to be a better counselor, psychotherapist, or psychologist by using Scripture, nor is it a guide on how to use psychology in everyday life from a biblical perspective. This book is not a commentary on the values of psychology through the eyes of the Scripture, nor is it an evaluation of the Scripture through the eyes of psychology. It is not a theology book, nor is it a criticism of psychology. It is simply an account of modern principles of psychology contained in Scripture.

  • Coming To Awe

    $15.99

    Lowell Routley, Ph.D. has trained therapists who work with victims of extreme trauma in The Core Integrity Model(C) that he developed since 1988. Dr. Routley has over 40 years of experience in which he has witnessed the resilience of the human mind and spirit to heal in spite of horrific violence, torture, and mind control. His counseling skills grew through post-graduate education but he attributes his greatest learning to have come from the victims themselves. Courageous people of all ages, seeking answers to be freed from mental and spiritual bondage, demonstrate that the Creator endowed the human mind with abilities to preserve their Creator-given identity.

    The Core Integrity Model(C) was applied to other areas of counseling since 2005. The foundation for this model is two-fold: first is that neurocognitive scientific research provides an understanding of how the human mind is directed by Core consciousness; second illustrates that faith in a personal Creator empowers healing. Dr. Routley finds congruence between faith and science. He claims that scientists are observing the Creator’s handiwork even though they may not acknowledge Him.

    Lowell’s education in counseling began at Greenville College and continued at Southern Illinois University, University of Iowa, and Walden University. His knowledge of the Bible began as a hearing impaired child challenged to memorize verses from seven years of age. He learned over three thousand verses giving him an overview of scripture that he uses as relevant in his counseling and teaching ministry.

    It is Lowell’s opinion that faith community is very important in healing and growth for every individual. A pilot study with a small group of four couples became the impetus for this series: Coming to Awe, Finding Identity. Lowell hopes that you will experience the awe that comes from knowing your Creator and who He intended you to be.

    The past 30 years has seen a theoretical and clinical renaissance in psychoanalysis, as well as a flourishing of Christian engagement in the fields of psychology and anthropology. This volume of essays stages a new conversation between Christianity and psychoanalysis that opens up new ways of thinking about the rich mosaic of human experience.

    Unsurprisingly, given Sigmund Freud’s understanding of religion, the conversation between Christianity and psychoanalysis has long been marked by mutual suspicion. Psychoanalysis originated within a naturalist, post-Enlightenment context and sought to understand human functioning and pathology–focusing on phenomena such as the unconscious and object representation–on a strictly empirical basis. Given certain accounts of divine agency and human uniqueness, psychoanalytic work was often seen as competitive with a Christian understanding of the human person. The contributors to Christianity and Psychoanalysis seek to start a new conversation. Aided by the turn to relationality in theology, as well as by a noncompetitive conception of God’s transcendence and agency, this book presents a fresh integration of Christian thought and psychoanalytic theory. The immanent processes identified by psychoanalysis need not compete with Christian theology but can instead be the very means by which God is involved in human existence. The Christian study of psychoanalysis can thus serve the flourishing of God’s kingdom.

  • Journey Of The Soul Cracked Pots And Broken Vessels

    $39.95

    Discover your story, learn how to tell it, and watch God perform miracles in your life as you fall more in love with your Abba Father.
    God uses cracked pots and broken vessels to tell His story: “And they overcame … by the power of the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony …” Revelation 12:11 KJV.
    God doesn’t waste anything or anyone. He takes the scars and pain of your life and turns you into the vessel of His glory you were created to be. Nothing surprises God. He has a plan to redeem you, save you, and let His light shine through you.
    Many Christians walk in bondage for failure to know and follow the Word of God. The Bible is Christ’s love letter to you, an instruction book to guide you through all of life’s difficulties. Who better to direct you through uncertain times than the one who knows of the best plans for your life? Yet Christ says his people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

    $24.95

    Discover your story, learn how to tell it, and watch God perform miracles in your life as you fall more in love with your Abba Father.
    God uses cracked pots and broken vessels to tell His story: “And they overcame … by the power of the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony …” Revelation 12:11 KJV.
    God doesn’t waste anything or anyone. He takes the scars and pain of your life and turns you into the vessel of His glory you were created to be. Nothing surprises God. He has a plan to redeem you, save you, and let His light shine through you.
    Many Christians walk in bondage for failure to know and follow the Word of God. The Bible is Christ’s love letter to you, an instruction book to guide you through all of life’s difficulties. Who better to direct you through uncertain times than the one who knows of the best plans for your life? Yet Christ says his people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

  • Good Mood Bad Mood

    $15.99

    Depression and bipolar disorder are two of the most common diagnoses made in medicine today. Good Mood, Bad Mood; examines whether we are in an epidemic or if we have simply misdiagnosed common sadness as depression. Current research in the medical community seems to indicate that the criteria we use to diagnose depression has resulted in an increased and incorrect labeling of common sadness as depression. While medical treatment is now the commonly accepted way to deal with pain and sadness, its promise has not been fulfilled. In Good Mood, Bad Mood, Dr. Charles Hodges offers an explanation to help the reader see the importance of sadness and the hope that God gives us in His Word.

  • Psychology Of Religion

    $40.00

    This book is written by a theologian, or to be more precise, by a theologian who is concerned professionally with religion and with pastoral psychology. The coming to terms with developments in the field of psycho-analysis has a twofold significance for the theologian. As a pastor I am often faced with the question of what actual view to take of psycho-analysis, and sometimes also how to regard the psycho-analyst as a therapist. (I am thinking for example of the problem of passing on a member of my congregation to a psychiatrist.) Among theologians there is often a kind of fear, as well as lack of knowledge; the theologian gets ‘cold feet’. Investigation could probably eliminate both ignorance and fear. On the other hand, through its theories psycho-analysis has become an important factor in our modern civilization, and one that theology must not ignore. Without analysis much modern ‘unbelief’ remains incomprehensible. Under this aspect too it is important for theology to be well informed about developments in psycho-analysis, and also to learn to istinguish more clearly than is generally the case between analysis as a therapeutic method (which rests on an objective and empirical investigation of the patient) and the theories which are and have been upheld by analysis; the latter reveal themselves as more evanescent than is oftern assumed.

  • Stepping Out Of Depression

    $14.99

    What should we do, how are we to think, when faith falters and hope disappears?

    Many women have wrestled with the issue of hopelessness in the face of their depression. Diagnosed at age forty-seven with a brain tumor, followed by a turbulent year of change and loss, the author relates her own slide into the darkness of clinical depression. With the support of her family, a compassionate Christian counselor, and appropriate medication, she found the healing she longed for. Now in full recovery, the author weaves threads of hope throughout the book’s pages.

    Written in short, easy-to-read chapters, Stepping Out of Depression offers insight into the journey from depression to restoration. Filled with stories of women who have walked the “valley of the shadow,” readers will be encouraged to reach out to God and reconnect with others on the path to spiritual and emotional wholeness.

  • Learning To Love Yourself

    $12.95

    We all come into this world full of promise and possibility. For some, when born into a healthy and highly functional family, the journey is quite easy, with guideposts and directions given freely. However, that is a very small population of people. Most of us were born into families that were in their own way struggling for independence, accomplishment, safety or security. For the millions of people who grew up in painful families, whether by absent parents, abusive parents, or those who were ill-equipped, noted therapist Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse shows that they do not have to follow a family tradition of compulsion or addiction.
    In the revised edition of the classic Learning to Love Yourself, Wegscheider-Cruse explains that it is possible to create our own self-worth at any time in our lives, even as adults. She guides readers on a journey to greater self-worth, explaining how to eliminate toxic self-defeating messages, how to choose healthier, new perspectives, and how to reinvent yourself each day open to a world of possibilities.

  • Mind Monsters : Conquering Fear Worry Guilt And Other Negative Thoughts Tha

    $9.99

    It’s impossible to live a positive life with a negative mind. If you want your life experience to be positive, abundant, joyful, and overflowing with peace, you must recognize mind monsters for what they are and learn how to overcome them.

    Before God created the universe, it was just a thought in His mind. His thoughts became His words, and by His words He spoke the world into existence. In the same way, what we think influences what we say, and what we say ultimately determines the type of world we create for ourselves.

    Our thoughts are the pathway to our future. But many of us are living beneath our potential because we’ve allowed “mind monsters” to steal our joy and peace, disrupt our relationships, and rob us of contentment. In Mind Monsters, author Kevin Gerald shows us how to combat these negative invaders of the mind and live a victorious life in Christ.

    Using the acronym F.A.I.T.H., Gerald explains how we can exterminate mind monsters such as fear, worry, guilt, and shame: Focus on the positive, Affirm yourself in the Lord, Imagine God doing something good in the situation, Trust Him in all things, and never give up Hope. Thoughts are like trains. They take us somewhere. People often end up in places don’t want to be because they boarded the wrong train of thought. Mind Monsters will show readers how to recognize, reject, and replace mind monsters, and retrain their thoughts so they can experience God’s best.

  • Authenticity Of Faith

    $24.99

    A psychologist tests Freud’s claims that faith is a form of wishful thinking and belief in God a consoling illusion.

    Is faith simply a form of wishful thinking? Is belief in God merely a consoling illusion? So argued Sigmund Freud in The Future of an Illusion. And the force of Freud’s argument continues to be felt as it features prominently among critics of religion such as the New Atheists.

    But was Freud right? Until now, few have directly examined the plausibility of Freud’s argument. But here, in a groundbreaking analysis inspired by the religious types described by William James in his seminal The Varieties of Religious Experience, Richard Beck explores the motivational dynamics among ”summer Christians” and ”winter Christians.” Further, across a variety of laboratory studies, Beck examines how Christians variously engage with art (exploring what Beck has dubbed ”The Thomas Kinkade Effect”), doctrine (from the Incarnation to beliefs regarding the activity of the devil), and religious difference in a pluralistic world. In each instance, Beck analyzes the underlying motivations of the religious types, sifting through the varieties and illusions of religious experience.

    The Authenticity of Faith presents a radical ”New Apologetics,” an attempt to move beyond contentious philosophical and theological disputes to examine the scientific merits of Freud’s critique of faith. Here is an unlikely journey–the scientific search for an authentic faith; the outcome is sure to inspire reflection, conversation, and debate among believers and skeptics alike.

  • Reconciliation : A Son’s Story

    $19.99

    In a new ground breaking memoir, “Reconciliation: A Son’s Story,” the author reflects back on his father’s war time experiences as the context underlying his own family dynamics and abuse.

    Through the author’s research and study of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, he comes to an understanding of his father’s behavior and how this deeply impacted the family which eventually leads to healing. Steve Sparks writes, “I owe my success in part to my Dad, but not without a high price. I call this ‘collateral damage’ from living in a family culture affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). At that time, men at war and coming home from war were too proud to share their stories and admit that anything in the way of mental illness was on the table for discussion. My Dad was no different than thousands of veterans with similar symptoms, especially those who were battle weary and emotionally damaged. The children and wives and others close to these men would have to experiment and learn how to navigate our way through a terrible circumstance. We did it well, but not without scars that often show.

    WWII has been in our past for well over a half century, and most of the ‘Greatest Generation’ passed on, but the effects of PTSD carry forward just like bad genes. We are still feeling the effects of WWII when PTSD was not studied and treatment was minimal. As a result, we are just beginning to address the realities of PTSD, including diagnosis and treatment, along with complete recovery from this unfortunate mental illness is now possible.” This is a true American story about father who went to war and came back changed by what he saw and by what he experienced. How this impacted his family was profound, yet unrecognized for what it was back then. Today we know much more about the effects of PTSD on the individual, but what about the family members closest to that person? This story of living through a toxic environment yet ultimately coming to an understanding leads to the long sought reconciliation of a son with his father. A very timely book, this may help the thousands of families of veterans of our own current generation returning from their war experiences to better understand the effects of PTSD on the family.

    by Cameron Lee

    Additional Info
    The tensions often cited between psychology and Christianity are well known. Much worthwhile work has been done to construct theories and frameworks for integrating the two. But how do Christians in psychology actually weave together these strands of their lives and their work. What are their stories? Here Glendon Moriarty brings together twelve of the foremost clinicians and academics in the field of Christian integration to share their stories. Coming from different perspectives and experiences, reflecting gender and ethnic diversity, these prominent psychologists tell about their spiritual, personal and professional journeys of interrelating their faith and profession. In this book we hear about the developmental issues, the sense of calling and the early career insights that shaped their paths. They recount the importance that significant relationships had on their understanding of Christian integration, especially noting the influence of mentors. Struggles and doubts are common human experiences, and the contributors openly share the stresses they encountered to encourage others with similar issues. On a day-to-day basis, we see how spiritual disciplines and the Christian community assist them in their work and in their understanding. Finally, each writer offers a personal note with lessons learned and hard-won wisdom gained. Randall Sorenson once said, “The integration of psychology and Christianity is caught, not taught.” In these stories is a unique opportunity to catch sight of twelve who have already traveled that challenging path.

    17 Can Psychological Science Help Us Know God Better?

    Additional Info
    Religion and science have often been at odds. In particular, Christianity and psychology have not always gotten along. Some Christians are still suspicious of psychological findings. But researcher Everett Worthington argues that Christians can know people better–and even know God better–through psychological science. Worthington suggests that the relationship between psychological science and Christianity is less like a war or mere dialogue and more like an emerging marriage. In this relational model of psychology and Christianity, there may be marital spats at times but also great potential for an intimate, mutually fulfilling relationship. Worthington demonstrates how the tools of experimental psychology shed light on human nature and the nature of God. Because people bear the image of God, the findings of psychological science help us understand both people and God more clearly. Psychological science provides new perspectives on theology and can help us address theological controversies and hot topics. Worthington gives recent examples of illuminating psychological findings, examines the distortions of the image of God through the effects of sin and points to ways that psychology assists Christians in living more virtuously. Psychology can contribute to the Christian life, because all of us, psychologists and non-psychologists alike, are human and can benefit from better understanding our fellow humankind. Beyond integrating Christian and psychological truths, this book uncovers new relationships between science and religion, demonstrates psychologys benefits to theology, and helps Christians live a redeemed life that is pleasing to God.

    Subject Index

    Additional Info
    How are Christians to understand and undertake the discipline of psychology? This question has been of keen interest (and sometimes concern) to Christians because of the importance we place on a correct understanding of human nature. Psychology can sometimes seem disconnected from, if not antithetical to, Christian perspectives on life. How are we to understand our Christian beliefs about persons in relation to secular psychological beliefs? This book presents four models for understanding the relationship between psychology and Christianity. David Powlison (Westminster Theological Seminary) offers the biblical counseling model. The levels-of-explanation model is advanced by David G. Myers (Hope College), while Stanton L. Jones (Wheaton College) introduces the integration model. The Christian psychology model is put forth by Robert C. Roberts (Baylor University). Each of the contributors responds to the other essayists, noting points of agreement as well as problems they see. This second edition includes an entirely new chapter by Stanton L. Jones presenting the integration model, along with new responses from the other contributors. It also includes a revised introduction by Eric L. Johnson, describing the history of Christians and psychology, as well as a conclusion that considers what might unite the four views and how a reader might evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of each view. Psychology and Christianity: Four Views has become a standard introductory textbook for students and professors of Christian psychology. This revision promises to keep it so.
