(A)Typical Woman: Free, Whole, and Called in Christ

(A)Typical Woman: Free, Whole, and Called in Christ
$14.99

Seeking to rediscover the full reality of what it means to be female, this book looks to God’s Word as the foundation to help Christian women to live out their callings as free and authentic members of Christ's mission.

A Woman Through and Through

In a culture that can belittle womanhood on the one hand--making it irrelevant--and glorify it on the other--making it everything--it's hard to know what it really means to be a woman. But when we understand womanhood through the lens of Scripture, we see that we need a bigger category for what God has called "woman."

This book breathes fresh air into our womanhood, reminding us what life in Christ--as a woman--looks like. When we see that we are women in all we do, we can be at peace with how God has created us, recognizing womanhood as an essential part of Christ's mission and work.

Now with a redesigned cover.

7 MYTHS ABOUT SINGLENESS

7 MYTHS ABOUT SINGLENESS
$14.99

If marriage shows us the shape of the gospel, singleness shows us its sufficiency.

Much of what we commonly assume about singleness--that it is primarily about the absence of good things like intimacy, family, or meaningful ministry--is either flat-out untrue or, at the very least, shouldn't be true. To be single, we often think, is to be alone and spiritually hindered.

But the Bible paints a very different picture of singleness: it is a positive gift and blessing from God. This book seeks to help Christians--married and unmarried alike--value singleness as a gift from God so that we can all encourage singles to take hold of the unique opportunities their singleness affords and see their role in the flourishing of the church as a whole.

A down-to-earth London girl, without many prospects, commits to Christ as an eighteen year old and the Lord uses her beyond what anyone could have imagined. Gladys Aylward, a little but determined woman, became a mighty gospel force amongst her beloved Chinese people as she forsook everything, even her own safety, for the sake of their physical and eternal wellbeing.

Her Christ-led adventure takes her on a perilous solitary journey from London to China, and sees her escorting hundreds of children through a war zone - even stopping a riot in a Chinese prison! Throughout it all, she would rather die with ‘her people’ than desert them. Her gospel living challenges us today, as she demonstrates a simple, transparent and challenging faith in the God whom she whole-heartedly trusted.

A Quiet Life is an uncanny blend of the real with the imagined, of memoir with fiction. A Quiet Life is narrated by Ma-chan, a twenty-year-old woman. Her father is a famous and fascinating novelist; her older brother, though severely brain damaged, possesses an almost magical gift for musical composition; and her mother's life is devoted to the care of them both. Ma-chan and her younger brother find themselves emotionally on the outside of this oddly constructed nuclear family. But when her father accepts a visiting professorship from an American university, Ma-chan finds herself suddenly the head of the household and at the center of family relationships that she must begin to redefine.

After The Rapture: An End Times Guide to Survival

After The Rapture: An End Times Guide to Survival
$18.99

Find the help and hope you'll need to face the day of reckoning! Jeremiah's must-have guide to the prophecy and theology of the last days provides easy-to-understand sections on the end times, rapture, judgment day, and tribulation; guidance for sharing the gospel with loved ones and preparing your own heart; relevant Scriptures; questions and answers; and more.

Stop. Drop everything. Nothing is more important for you to understand right now than this! One day soon, everyone, everywhere will be wondering, what on earth just happened?

But these future events need not be an inexplicable mystery. The coming Rapture will be an amazing fulfillment of biblical prophecy--one that has been eagerly awaited by Bible-believing Christians since Jesus' ascension into heaven.

Though many are ready, many more are not. And there's a great deal of confusion about the Rapture--and its aftermath--even among those who will be caught up in the air with Christ.

After the Rapture presents the perfect primer for you on this critical prophetic event, the ideal witnessing tool for unsaved loved ones, and a resource of biblical direction for those seeking answers in the future. Inside this paperback volume you'll find:

  • A detailed look at what the Rapture is, how it happens, and what happens afterward.
  • Eye-opening sections on the Rapture, Judgment Day, and the Great Tribulation.
  • The information you need to clear up your own confusion and prepare for Christ's return.
  • A unique, compelling way to share Jesus with those in danger of being left behind.
  • Valuable questions and answers, Scripture verses, life application, and more!
  • This is NOT a work of fiction. In these pages, you won't find speculation . . . but rather a pure and detailed description straight from Scripture about what life will be like After the Rapture.

    Be Comforted (Isaiah)

    Be Comforted (Isaiah)
    $14.99

    For anyone who thinks that comfort is equivalent to pity and that it is only priceless to those who need an emotional crutch, best-selling author Warren Wiersbe applies the words of the prophet Isaiah to prove that God's comfort is no such thing. The word comfort actually translates to repent in Hebrew; our English translation, however, adds another dimension to the word since it originated from two Latin words meaning with strength.

    With definitions and insights like this, the pastor of pastors and phenomenal author Warren Wiersbe continues to enliven the Scriptures as he weaves the words of Isaiah with historical explanations and thought-provoking questions for every chapter, creating a study guide that can be used in personal Bible study or with a group. With over 4 million copies of his Be series alone in circulation, he is a man who has given his life to a deep examination of the Word of God, to communicating it in such a way that the masses see its relevance for today.

    Be Confident (Hebrews)

    Be Confident (Hebrews)
    $14.99

    When the Book of Hebrews was penned, the ages were colliding and society seemed to be shaking. Hebrews was written to Christians who were wondering what was going on and what they could do about it. As the stability of the old was passing away, their faith was wavering. Wiersbe says the one major message of Hebrews is Be Confident! God is shaking things so you might learn to live by faith and not by sight. He wants to build your life on the permanence of the eternal, not on the instability of the temporal. Questions for personal reflection and group discussion are included at the end of each chapter.

    Hebrews--written by Christians, to Christians, and for Christians--is loaded with spiritual truth accessible to any believer looking to grasp the importance of faith. Penned at a politically unstable time, Hebrews targets believers tempted to abandon their faith and slip back into the rules and regulations of Judaism.

    In our politically unstable day of "wars and rumors of wars" (Mark13:7), we can all understand the quest for stability. But there is only one source of rock solid security.

    There was a time for rules and sacrifices. Then Christ came as the perfect, spotless Lamb to atone for sin once and for all. Respected pastor Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe will show you that by focusing on the reality of the unseen first, an overwhelming desire for intimate friendship with God will follow.

    "The ministry of the Holy Spirit is not a luxury; it is an absolute necessity," writes celebrated author and respected pastor Warren Wiersbe. In his first of two books covering Acts, Be Dynamic focuses on Peter's ministry, mostly in Israel and centered in Jerusalem. Through explaining Luke's record of the Gospel's advancement and church expansion, Wiersbe opens the door to understanding the work of the church today.

    Using hard-hitting quotes from recognized names like St. Augustine and John Bunyan, Wiersbe proves himself as a well-read author and gifted writer. The depth of his study is astounding, yet the accessibility of his text for every age group is evident as well. He proves what Luke intended-for Acts to be interpreted not as the apostles' glorious acts, but as the life-changing acts of the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit lives in believers today, the same God calls followers to expand His church, and the same basic problems still arise within the church, but the same power available then is still available now to change the nations.

Urging you to claim your spiritual inheritance, she encourages you to accept God's forgiveness, walk in love, and live gospel-centered relationships. 224 pages, softcover from Crossway.

    God's love has the power to change lives. Christians, then, should exhibit the greatest transformation of all because, rightly understood and cherished, God's love makes them increasingly more like the One who has lavished his love on them.

    So why do we so often struggle to exhibit God's love? Biblical counselor Elyse M. Fitzpatrick asks one simple question: "In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind?" We need to be rescued from our "identity amnesia" and pointed to our true identity as God's beloved children--adopted by the Father, united with the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

    Fitzpatrick shows how a genuine transformation of identity leads to a transformation of our daily lives. Those who struggle with either legalism or lawlessness will find encouragement to return to God's love, the source of authentic and lasting change.

    We know the Bible is important, but many of us struggle with it. We're not biblical experts-though we may have started enough reading plans to be really familiar with Genesis. If we're honest, the Bible often intimidates us, confuses us, and reading it doesn't always thrill us.

    And yet, the Bible is where God reveals his loving character and incredible plan of redemption. In a practical and engaging manner, Matt Smethurst-managing editor of The Gospel Coalition-presents nine heart postures that will prepare you to unpack all that's awaiting you in God's Word.

    Although there are many great resources on how to read and study Scripture, hardly any focus exclusively on how to approach it in the first place. That's what Smethurst provides in this unique "prelude" to opening your Bible. For without the right heart postures, we're not yet ready to start reading.

The format is flexible, consisting of an introduction and three 10-week modules revealing the key beliefs, practices, and virtues of a Christ-follower.

    It's one thing to know the story of the Bible. It's another thing to live it.

    Grounded in carefully selected Scripture, Believe, NIV is a unique spiritual growth experience that takes you on a journey to think, act, and be more like Jesus. Pastor Randy Frazee walks you through the ten key beliefs of the Christian faith, the ten key Practices of a Jesus-follower, and the ten key Virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus. Every believer needs to ask these three questions: What do I believe? What should I do? Who am I becoming?

    What you believe in your heart will define who you become. God wants you to become like Jesus - it is the most truthful and powerful way to live - and the journey to becoming like Jesus begins by thinking like Jesus. When you study the life of Jesus you will notice a distinct pattern: Jesus faithfully lived in a purposeful way. Jesus compared the Christian life to a vine. He is the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in the vine of Christ, over time you will produce amazing and scrumptious fruit at the end of your branches for all to see and taste. You become like Jesus.

    Each chapter uses short topical passages from the New International Version (NIV) to help you live the story of the Bible. As you journey through this Bible, whether in a group or on your own, one simple truth will become undeniably clear: what you believe drives everything.

    Why should you join a church?

    Becoming a member of a church is an important, and often neglected, part of the Christian life. Yet the trend these days is one of shunning the practice of organized religion and showing a distaste or fear of commitment, especially of institutions.

    Jonathan Leeman addresses these issues with a straightforward explanation of what church membership is and why it's important. Giving the local church its proper due, Leeman has built a compelling case for committing to the local body.

    How does understanding conversion shape ministry? The way a church operates says alot about how they believe people are saved.

    What Is the Role of Corporate Worship in the Church?

    Christians worship God at church every week, but many don't know exactly what worship is or why they do it. For some, it's a warm-up for the sermon. For others, it's a "me-and-Jesus" moment. What is the biblically informed way to view corporate worship?

    Demystifying Decision-Making: A Practical Guide
    $14.99

    Drawing Closer to God One Decision at a Time

    On an average day, people make countless decisions: Should I get out of bed or hit the snooze button? What should I have for breakfast? Where should we go for this year's vacation? While some decisions are easy to make, others can leave individuals paralyzed and full of anxiety. As Christians living in an increasingly individualistic society, what's the best strategy for making decisions that honor God while becoming more like him in the process?

    Writing from her own experience and pointing to biblical examples, Aimee Joseph offers a biblical and theological framework for decision-making. She explains God's design for humans as decision-makers, the biblical model for making choices, common wrong approaches, practical tips, and what to do when you've made a poor decision. With the philosophy that "as we shape our decisions, our decisions shape us," Joseph teaches readers how to worship and draw closer to Christ through their daily decisions.

  • Practical: Equips Christians to make decisions as God's image bearers
  • Applicable: Features study questions and helpful resources, including "The Dashboard of Decisions" and a decision-making flowchart

    Do You Believe? 12 Historic Doctrines to Change Your Everyday Life
    $32.99

    Bestselling Author Paul David Tripp Unpacks 12 Doctrines for Everyday Christian Living

    Doctrine--what Christians believe--directly influences how they live. The biblical truths about God, humanity, and the world are not merely about knowing more--they are also about loving God and making sense of this life and the life to come. But what happens when there is disparity between what believers confess and how they live?

    In his latest book, Do You Believe?, pastor and bestselling author Paul David Tripp takes a close look at 12 core doctrines and how they engage and transform the human heart and mind. According to Tripp, "true belief is always lived." To demonstrate, he unpacks each doctrine and presents its relevance for the Christian life. As readers explore topics such as the doctrine of God, the holiness of God, and the doctrine of Scripture, they will be fueled to fall deeper in love with and stand in awe of their Creator and Father--putting the truths of God's word on display for all the world to see.

    $4.99

    Sadly, most of us struggle to set aside time to pray. But, fear not, this is not another book that will pile on the guilt, simply saying pray better and more often. Instead, Michael Reeves shows us not only why prayer is so essential, but also how we can enjoy it too.

    Taking his cue from Calvin's definition that prayer is 'the chief exercise of faith,' Reeves helps us understand that prayer should be a natural expression of our faith. Just as faith is awakened as we grasp the wonders of the gospel, so prayer follows as our hearts respond to these glorious truths.

    Enjoy your prayer life is a delightful read; and as you turn the pages, it'll show you that prayer doesn't have to be a duty to be performed, but is rather a gift to be enjoyed.

    Evangelism is more than a program.

    Every few years, churches jump into the latest evangelistic fad. Leaders administrate the new program, and members go on a raid. But picture a church where evangelism is simply part of the culture. Leaders share their faith consistently and openly. Members follow, encouraging one another to make evangelism an ongoing way of life.

    Such is the way of evangelism presented by this brief and compelling book. No program here. Instead, it just might give your church a new way to live and share the gospel together.

    "My dear friend Jennie Allen shows us how to make true emotional connections with the right people so that our authentic relationships can be healthy for all."--Lysa TerKeurst, author of It's Not Supposed to Be This Way

    In a world that's both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we're often tempted to do life alone, whether because we're so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others has a powerful impact on our well-being. We are meant to live known and loved.

    - overcome the barriers to making new friends and learn to initiate with easy-to-follow steps
    - find simple ways to press through awkward to get to authentic in conversations
    - understand how conflict can strengthen relationships rather than destroy them
    - identify the type of friend you are and the types of friends you need
    - learn the five practical ingredients you need to have the type of friends you've always longed for

    You were created to play, engage, adventure, and explore--with others. In Find Your People, you'll discover exactly how to dive into the deep end and experience the full wonder of community. Because while the ache of loneliness is real, it doesn't have to be your reality.

    Gentle and Lowly
    $19.99

    Christians know what Jesus Christ has done—but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” In Gentle and Lowly, Dane Ortlund reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who Jesus is for sinners and sufferers today.

    Christians can easily feel that Jesus is perpetually disappointed and frustrated, maybe even close to giving up on them. They know what Christ has done for them--but who is he? How does he feel about his people amid all their sins and failures?

    In Matthew 11, Jesus describes himself as "gentle and lowly in heart," longing for his people to find rest in him. This book reflects on his words, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of Christ's affections for sinners and encouraging believers as they journey, weary and faltering, toward heaven.

    Go: Returning Discipleship to the Frontlines of Faith

    Go: Returning Discipleship to the Frontlines of Faith
    $14.99
    Disciple-making is a passion of many, as it should be. It is, after all, our great commission. But much of contemporary discipleship is informed by instinct, and as such it is vulnerable to the whims and trends of the broader culture, which can take us further away from our biblical model and mandate.

    Drawing on a 2015 Barna Group study of the state of discipleship in the United States commissioned by The Navigators, bestselling author Preston Sprinkle provides a holistic, biblical response for discipleship, providing accessible tools for all those who are engaged in making Christ-followers in the 21st century. Sprinkle points pastors, church leaders, and frankly, all Christ-followers, to a discipleship that is responsive to this most current research and accountable to the model of Jesus and his earliest followers, who counted making disciples as their most important work.

    In an extremely practical fashion, Go helps us to discern, from the Scriptures and from exemplary disciple-making ministries, what discipleship is and is not, what it has become and what it can still be.
