The Gospel Comes With a House Key

THE GOSPEL COMES WITH A HOUSE KEY
$24.99

Winner of the 2019 Christianity Today Book Award in the Christian Living & Discipleship Category

"This book is going to shake us all up in the most wonderfully destabilizing way." --Ray Ortlund, Lead Pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee

What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.

With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same "radical, ordinary hospitality" to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God's tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives--helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

THE MESSAGE OF WISDOM : LEARNING AND LIVING THE WAY OF THE LORD

THE MESSAGE OF WISDOM : LEARNING AND LIVING THE WAY OF THE LORD
$16.19
'For the LORD gives wisdom...he stores up sound wisdom for the upright... The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom' (Proverbs 2:6, 7; 9:10). The Old Testament books of Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes are often referred to as the wisdom books of the Bible. The theme of wisdom, however, is not limited to these books: it actually pervades much of the Bible. Dan Estes explores wisdom in key passages in Scripture. In Part 1, he investigates the concept of wisdom in the book of Proverbs: what wisdom is and how it calls out to humans to follow its path. In Part 2, he considers how wisdom is presented in various contexts in the Old Testament, in passages from the law (Deuteronomy 30), history (1 Kings 3-4), prophecy (Jeremiah 8-9) and Psalm 112. Part 3 focuses on Proverbs to learn how wisdom affects our conduct in our work, our speech, our decisions and our righteous living. There is complexity in the biblical message of wisdom. Part 4 shows how the prominent theme of retribution in Proverbs is balanced and qualified in the books of Job and Ecclesiastes. In Part 5, Estes examines the culmination of wisdom in the New Testament, as we see that Jesus is the master teacher of wisdom and the source of all wisdom, and that we are challenged to live by God's wisdom rather than falling into folly. Throughout the Bible, we are constantly challenged to learn God's wisdom, to live God's wisdom, and to love God's wisdom.

The Text in the Middle

The Text in the Middle
$114.09
This book is an analysis of inner-biblical exegesis which ordinarily involves examination of the intertextual relationship between two texts within the biblical corpus. The direction of dependence between texts of this kind is not as important in the present study as the direction in which these texts were meant to be read by those who gave them their final shape.

$57.89 - $96.49
It has been widely recognized that the Book of the Twelve, Hosea to Malachi, was considered a single composition in antiquity. Recent articles and monographs have discussed the internal clues to this composition, but there has been little effort to understand the way the New Testament authors quote from the Twelve in light of the compositional unity of the book. The Twelve Prophets in the New Testament contends that New Testament quotations from the Twelve presuppose knowledge of the larger whole and cannot be understood correctly apart from awareness of the compositional strategy of the Twelve.

What is an ideal church, and how can you tell?

How does it look different from other churches? More importantly, how does it act differently, especially in society? Many of us aren't sure how to answer those questions, even though we probably have some preconceived idea. But with this book, you don't have to wonder any more.

Author Mark Dever seeks to help believers recognize the key characteristics of a healthy church: expositional preaching, biblical theology, and a right understanding of the gospel. Dever then calls us to develop those characteristics in our own churches. By following the example of New Testament authors and addressing church members from pastors to pew sitters, Dever challenges all believers to do their part in maintaining the local church. What Is a Healthy Church? offers timeless truths and practical principles to help each of us fulfill our God-given roles in the body of Christ.

WHY BOTHER WITH CHURCH?

WHY BOTHER WITH CHURCH?
$12.99

The church is widely viewed in the world at large as being outdated, boring, irrelevant and filled with backbiting hypocrites.

How different that picture is to how the Bible talks about the new family that Jesus has gathered. It is a precious bride, a sparkling jewel, a lifeboat for forgiven sinners that is precious and holy; nurturing and warm; filled with truth, friendship and all embracing, forgiving love.

Sam Allberry understands the collision between these two views, and how, even as Christian believers, we can lose sight of how truly wonderful church is and what a privilege it is to be part of.

In this brief, accessible but thorough guide to church, Sam outlines what church is and why we need it. And how, when we have got it wrong, we can move closer to what a true church should be.

Part of the Questions Christians Ask series: a range of short, simple books designed to help Christians grapple with the contemporary issues.

Christians are increasingly seen as outdated, restrictive and judgmental when it comes to sex before marriage, cohabitation and homosexuality. In fact for many people, this issue is one of the biggest barriers for them considering Christianity.

Sam Allberry, author of many books including Is God Anti-gay sets out God's good design for the expression of human sexuality. Readers will be shown that God himself is love and his blueprint for sex is designed to help us to flourish and live out our full humanity.

It is a great reminder of the Bible's teaching on love, sex and marriage and ideal for giving away to people who may see it as a stumbling block for belief.

Worldview As Worship

The goal of many evangelical educators is to facilitate biblical thinking and the worldview transformation of their students. Yet, aside from upholding a set of moral behaviors or maintaining positions on issues perceived to be ""Christian,"" the goals and aspirations of most evangelical young people differ little from their unbelieving peers. As George Barna has noted, ""We have a generation coming up that . . . isn't looking at Christianity to answer spiritual concerns . . . We either change or we lose them."" Worldview as Worship contends that the approach taken by most evangelical educators to the issue of worldview transformation has neglected to address two fundamental components of worldviews. First, that our initial worldviews are not philosophical systems but rather faith dispositions and that worldview transformation cannot simply present the biblical worldview as a more rational or logical system, but must address issues of the heart as well as the mind. Second, unlike philosophies that are individual, worldviews are communal and are learned and transformed within the context of community practice. Appealing to Paul's teaching in Romans 12:1-2, Worldview as Worship approaches the ""renewing of your mind"" as the result of the believer's presentation of themselves as a ""holy sacrifice . . . which is your spiritual service of worship."" The book advocates an approach to worldview transformation that focuses on believers as apprentices rather than simply as students--an approach that holds true to the biblical model of discipleship. As a result, worldview transformation works best when the application of faith to the issues of learning and life are modeled by the faith community and where students are given the opportunity to put faith into practice. ""If you are a Christian educator passionate about seeing your students' lives transformed, this book is a 'must read.' Baumann suggests that true worldview transformation is the result of living in community and cooperation, supported by an apprenticeship model of teaching and learning. This book is as relevant for Christian educators in P-12 as for faculty in colleges and universities."" -Rhoda C. Sommers Dean, School of Education and Human Development Malone University ""For more than twenty years Baumann's creative and inspirational teaching has helped teenagers, university students, and young adults 'develop a more consistent and all-encompassing biblical worldview in their own lives.' Now his simple but powerful biblical insights are available in this thoughtful and clearly written format that can help Christian educators better achieve the worldview transformation that we long for in our students and our selves."" -Phil Bassett Director of Teacher Training International Schools of China ""An educator's beliefs create altars in the classroom. Teachers are instructional priests, their beliefs impacting generations. If Christian higher education expects to be distinctive, professors will be helped by Worldview as Worship. Dr. Baumann enables a biblically transcendent orientation to education, maintaining that Christian community is essential for transformed Christian thinking. Everyone worships, everyone believes, and classroom beliefs will create worldviews which students worship."" -Mark Eckel Dean of Undergraduate Studies and Professor of Old Testament Crossroads Bible College ""Eddie Baumann has issued a much needed clarion call for Christian educators to understand anew that transformative Christian schooling must aim at the heart of each student. Discipleship, education, and worship are properly centered in the biblical concepts of justice, compassion, and shalom."" -James L. Drexler Dean, Social Sciences and Education Covenant College Eddie K. Baumann serves as Professor of Education at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio.
