God, Technology, and the Christian Life
$21.99

What Does God Think about Technology?

Many Christians remain perplexed about modern technology. New iPhones and social media platforms, self-driving cars, and genetic engineering all prove that human innovation is not slowing down for anyone. But as technologies multiply and life in this age becomes more complex, the questions become more stark: What does God think of human technology? Is he threatened by all its power? Is he trying to dismantle Silicon Valley?

In his latest book, journalist Tony Reinke addresses these and other hard questions head-on from the Bible. By turning to 9 key passages and engaging with several theologians and thinkers, Reinke seeks to dismantle 12 common myths Christians often hold about technology, helping them understand the story of where human innovation came from and to embrace the church's essential role in it.

  • Biblical, Informed Look at Technology: Written by the author of 12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You and Competing Spectacles: Treasuring Christ in the Media Age
  • Gathers Ideas from Industry Experts and Theologians: Interacts with Christian and non-Christian sources on technology and theology including John Calvin, Herman Bavinck, Wendell Berry, and Elon Musk
  • Educational: Discusses the history and philosophy behind major technological innovations

    Gospel People: A Call for Evangelical Integrity

    Gospel People: A Call for Evangelical Integrity
    $16.99

    A Biblical Case for the Importance and Goodness of Being "Evangelical"

    The term evangelical is often poorly defined and frequently comes with cultural and political baggage. As the label has become more controversial, many Christians have begun to wonder if they should abandon it altogether.

    Michael Reeves argues from a global, scriptural, and historical perspective that, while it's not necessary to discard the label altogether, Christians must return to the root of the term--the evangel, or "gospel"--in order to understand what it truly means. He identifies the theology of evangelicalism and its essential doctrine--the Father's revelation in the Bible, the Son's redemption in the gospel, and the Spirit's regeneration of the heart--calling believers to stand with integrity as people of the gospel.

  • A Biblical and Theological Explanation of Evangelicalism: Rooted in Scripture and the writings of figures throughout church history
  • Globally-Minded: Explores evangelical theology and distinctives outside of narrow cultural definitions
  • Brief and Accessible: Written for both lay people and church leaders

    Gospel-Centered Discipleship

    Gospel-Centered Discipleship
    $14.99

    Everyone's idea of discipleship is different. Some people emphasize evangelism-sharing their faith. Still others promote a hierarchical system for spiritual growth, a way for older Christians to pass on best practices to younger believers. Yet, both ideas are incomplete. Real discipleship is so much more.

    Avoiding extremes and evaluating motives, Jonathan Dodson's Gospel Centered Discipleship insists on a way of following Jesus that re-centers discipleship on the gospel.

    This book helps us understand and experience the fullness of discipleship as God intended. It combines the mess and the weight, the imperfection and transformation, the honesty and wonder of being a disciple who revolves around Jesus. Here is a practical guide to discipleship that is Spirit-filled, Christ-centered, field-tested, and easily implemented.

    How to Be an Atheist: Why Many Skeptics Aren't Skeptical Enough

    How to Be an Atheist: Why Many Skeptics Aren't Skeptical Enough
    $21.99

    Atheists talk a lot about the importance of skepticism. But the truth is, they're not nearly skeptical enough.

    While atheists champion the importance of a critical stance toward religion, they often fail to take that same stance toward their own beliefs. This double standard results in grandiose claims about the certainty of their unbelief--which is logically inconsistent at best and intellectually dishonest at worst. Turning atheists' skepticism around on their own naturalist worldview, philosopher Mitch Stokes critically examines two things that such skeptics hold dear--science and morality--and reveals deep inconsistencies among their most cherished beliefs, inconsistencies that threaten to undo atheism itself.

    I Once Was Lost: What Postmodern Skeptics Taught Us About Their Path to Jesus
    $16.99

    How do people come to Jesus in today's "truth is relative" culture? Everts and Schaupp listened intently as 2,000 individuals described their journeys from postmodern doubt to Christian faith. Despite a diversity of circumstances, common themes were unmistakable. Discover factors that influence modern skeptics to consider Christ---and how to help your neighbors do likewise. 132 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

    How do people come to Jesus in today's postmodern culture? Not by a mechanical, linear process of cookie cutter conversions. Nor by a nebulous spiritual wandering that never culminates in decision and commitment. Over the last decade, Don Everts and Doug Schaupp have listened to the stories of two thousand postmodern people who have come to follow Jesus. While their stories are diverse and varied, certain common themes emerge. Postmodern evangelism is a mysterious and organic process that nevertheless goes through discernible phases, as people cross thresholds from distrust to trust, from complacency to curiosity and from meandering to seeking. Everts and Schaupp describe the factors that influence how people shift in their perspectives and become open to the Gospel. They provide practical tools to help people enter the kingdom, as well as guidelines for how new believers can live out their Christian faith.

Based on her bestseller Made to Crave, Lysa TerKeurst offers a new perspective to all those stuck in the cycle of losing weight and then gaining it back, equipping you with the deeper spiritual and emotional motivation you need to make lasting changes.

    So often we characterize our food cravings as bad, especially when dieting has made us feel even more disappointed and discouraged. But the reality is we were made to crave. We just need to realize God created us to crave more of Him instead of misplacing that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures and unhealthy choices that will never truly satisfy.

    In the midst of her own personal struggle with this, New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst invites us to embrace a new outlook that leads to enduring change. In this newly revised and condensed version of Made to Crave, Lysa encourages you to:

  • Break the cycle of I'll start again Monday and start taking steps toward consistency that lasts
  • Stop agonizing over numbers on the scale and make peace with your body
  • Replace rationalizations that lead to failure with wisdom that leads to victory
  • Reach your healthy goals and grow closer to God through the process
  • This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This is the necessary resource to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose that will help you find your want to and lead to a spiritual satisfaction that goes far beyond the physical.

    How do we keep parents informed? How many volunteers do we need? So many questions to consider! Kennedy takes a four-fold approach to children's ministry: hospitality, teaching, discipleship, and mission. Offering practical resources---from putting together lesson plans for gospel-centered learning to creating child protection policies---he'll help you keep your church and the next generation on track. 240 pages, softcover from Crossway.

    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.

    If God had it His way, what would our churches look like?

    In his most powerful book yet, Pastor Francis Chan digs deep into biblical truths, reflections on his own failures and dreams, and stories of ordinary people God is using to change the world.

    As Chan says, "We've strayed so far from what God calls Church. We all know it. We know that what we're experiencing is radically different from the Church in Scripture. For decades, church leaders like myself have lost sight of the inherent mystery of the Church. We have trained people sitting in the pews to become addicted to lesser things. It's time for that to change."

    When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Bride-even more than for our own lives? Letters to the Church reminds us of how powerful, how glorious the Church once was … and calls us to once again be the Church God intended us to be.

    If God had it His way, what would your church look like?

    The New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Love challenges readers to be the Church as God intends.

  • Do you want more from your church experience?
  • Does the pure gospel put you in a place of awe?
  • Are you ready to rethink church as you know it?

  • Sit with Pastor Francis Chan and be reminded that you are a part of something much bigger than yourself, something sacred.

    In his most powerful book yet, Chan digs deep into biblical truth, reflects on his own failures and dreams, and shares stories of ordinary people God is using to change the world.

    Living in the Light: Money, Sex & Power
    $12.99

    Money, sex, and power. The world tends to worship them. Christians are often suspicious of them. And yet God made us to enjoy them.

    Discover how to keep these three dangerous opportunities in the orbits that they were designed for, experiencing them in a way that satifies you, serves the world, and glorifies God. This fresh, refreshing book will wake you up to the blazing glory of Christ, and inspire you to make him the gravitational center of your life. And when that happens, everything changes. 160 pages, hardcover.

    Whether we're rich or poor, married or single, in a position of great influence or not--all of us face temptation in the areas of money, sex and power. They are the dangerous opportunities of our time--opportunities to destroy our own souls, or to experience the true joy of using them for God's glory.

    John Piper shows us that when we have the blazing glory of Christ at the center of our spiritual solar system, the planets of money, sex and power find their true and beautiful orbits.

    This book is for every Christian and will help you to wake up to the all-satisfying glory of God, and discover what you were made for.

    Living Life Backward

    Living Life Backward
    $17.99

    Only by keeping the end in mind can a person truly learn how to live in the here and now. Living in light of our death reorients us to our limitations as creatures and helps us see God's good gifts right in front of us-enabling us to live wisely, freely, and generously. Drawing on wisdom from the book of Ecclesiastes, David Gibson teaches us to embrace this countercultural mind-set and live life backward: to take the one thing in the future that is certain-our death-and work backward when it comes to our priorities, goals, desires, and decisions. If we do this, we'll learn that only with a proper perspective on death can we find meaning and satisfaction in life--and see just how great God is.

    What if it is death that teaches us how to truly live?

    Keeping the end in mind shapes how we live our lives in the here and now. Living life backward means taking the one thing in our future that is certain--death--and letting that inform our journey before we get there.

    Looking to the book of Ecclesiastes for wisdom, Living Life Backward was written to shake up our expectations and priorities for what it means to live "the good life." Considering the reality of death helps us pay attention to our limitations as human beings and receive life as a wondrous gift from God--freeing us to live wisely, generously, and faithfully for God's glory and the good of his world.

  • never give up--no matter how scared they are.
  • put their faith into action by spending time with--and acting more like--Jesus.
  • Kids everywhere will love Bob and Lindsey's stories about how love does.

    As a little boy with a big personality and even bigger dreams, Bob Goff had lots of questions, and they didn't go away when he grew up. It wasn't until he learned just how big and wild and wonderful God is that he began to find answers. Once Bob learned about the deep goodness of God, he began to learn about the great power God gives His kids when they live a life full of love for others.

    Bob and Lindsey invite kids to get to know God better and to see the world as a place designed to be changed as we put our faith in action.

    Mission Affirmed: Recovering the Missionary Motivation of Paul
    $19.99

    Learn What It Will Take to Accomplish Christ's Mission in Our Lifetime

    As a model for Christian missions, the apostle Paul is praised for his sense of urgency when proclaiming the gospel, but are modern churches missing his broader motivation? Paul didn't view missions as simply accomplishing a goal; he valued affirmation from God, seeking it fervently in every area of his ministry. How can churches today emulate that ambition in their own mission efforts?

    In Mission Affirmed, author and missionary Elliot Clark seeks to shift the focus of ministries from mere efficiency to Christ-centered service that prioritizes the will and approval of God. By studying Paul's ministry, particularly in 2 Corinthians, readers learn that his motivation wasn't dependent on circumstances but on the Spirit, helping him remain faithful despite suffering and setbacks. This book equips local churches in the same way as they send missionaries into the field, serving together and stewarding the gospel in pursuit of God's praise.

  • Biblical Ministry Advice: Provides a holistic look at Paul's ministry, methods, and motivation
  • A Great Resource for Church Leaders: Helps churches vet and send missionaries
  • First-Hand Ministry Insights: Provides a practical solution for common weaknesses in modern missions, with descriptive examples from the author's experiences as a missionary

    16 Encouraging Sermons on Human Weakness and God's Sufficiency by Francis Schaeffer

    Most Christians take an honest look at themselves and conclude that their limited talents, energy, and knowledge mean that they don't amount to much. Some even ask, Can I really make a difference? Francis A. Schaeffer counters this claim with truth from the Bible, arguing that with God there is no such thing as little people.

    No Little People contains sixteen sermons from Schaeffer that explore the weakness and significance of humanity in relationship to the infinite and personal God. The focus of this collection is the lasting truth of the Bible, the faithfulness of God, the sufficiency of the work of Christ, and the power of the Spirit. Readers will be encouraged by the value that God places on each person made in his image to accomplish his redemptive plan.

    No Shortcut to Success: A Manifesto for Modern Missions

    No Shortcut to Success: A Manifesto for Modern Missions
    $19.99

    In No Shortcut to Success, author and missionary Matt Rhodes encourages Christians to stop chasing silver-bullet strategies for missions and embrace long-term methods grounded on theological education, clear communication, and a devotion to ministry excellence.

    Avoid "Get-Rich-Quick" Missions Strategies and Invest in Effective, Long-Term Ministry

    Trendy new missions strategies are a dime a dozen, promising missionaries monumental results in record time. These strategies report explosive movements of people turning to Christ, but their claims are often dubious and they do little to ensure the health of believers or churches that remain. How can churches and missionaries address the urgent need to reach unreached people without falling for quick fixes?

    In No Shortcut to Success, author and missionary Matt Rhodes implores Christians to stop chasing silver-bullet strategies and short-term missions, and instead embrace theologically robust and historically demonstrated methods of evangelism and discipleship--the same ones used by historic figures such as William Carey and Adoniram Judson. These great missionaries didn't rush evangelism; they spent time studying Scripture, mastering foreign languages, and building long-term relationships. Rhodes explains that modern missionaries' emphasis on minimal training and quick conversions can result in slipshod evangelism that harms the communities they intend to help. He also warns against underestimating the value of individual skill and effort--under the guise of "getting out of the Lord's way"--and empowers Christians with practical, biblical steps to proactively engage unreached groups.

  • Biblical Ministry Advice: Examines the work of respected missionaries throughout history
  • Encourages Professionalism in Missions: Rhodes teaches missionaries to invest in theological education, communication, and technical skills
  • A Great Resource for Ministries: Includes specific advice for singles, parents, and other groups
  • Insightful: Examines strengths and weaknesses of recent missionary movements

    NOT YET MARRIED

    NOT YET MARRIED
    $14.99

    Life Is Never Mainly about Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More.

    Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God's purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you "the one," but about inspiring you to live and date for more now.

    If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that's because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.

    Patriotism and the Cross

    Patriotism and the Cross (Paperback)
    $22.59
    $16.89
    $16.89 - $22.59
    Every follower of Christ has a coterminous sense of citizenship--(s)he is at the same time a citizen of a country (or countries) on earth, but also has a heavenly allegiance through faith in Jesus Christ. How then should Christians live in light of these tensions? What does the Bible teach about issues of nationality, nationalism, and patriotism? Designed around seven chapters, this book investigates the issue of national identity for the follower of Christ. Specifically, this book delves into more than the binary of whether a Christian can be patriotic or not. Or, whether a Christian can be nationalistic or not. What should a Christian do in light of differing political conditions around them because, in this situation, Christians still need to share the gospel and make disciples of all nations? As a result, answers are proffered by the author, based on Old and New Testament examples, on national identity, free trade and supranational groupings, secessionist agitation and independence referendums, as well as transnational linkages that connect followers of Christ around the globe. This book ends with sixteen conclusions on how Christians should live in the modern world with respect to nationalism and patriotism.

    What is the role of corporate prayer in the church?

    Prayer is as necessary to the Christian as breathing is to the human body--but it often doesn't come quite as naturally. In fact, prayer in the church often gets subtly pushed to the side in favor of pragmatic practices that promise tangible results.

    This book focuses on the necessity of regular prayer as a central practice in the local church--awakening us to the need and blessing of corporate prayer by examining what Jesus taught about prayer, how the first Christians approached prayer, and how to prioritize prayer in our congregations.

    $21.99

    Explore the importance of the disappearing act of reading! When a smartphone offers information at the tap of a finger, has sitting down with a book become tedious and outdated? Ryken and Mathes answer this question by exploring reading's deeper importance---and, in particular, the study of the Bible as literature. 304 pages, softcover from Crossway.

    A Christian Perspective on the Joys of Reading

    Reading has become a lost art. With smartphones offering us endless information with the tap of a finger, it's hard to view reading as anything less than a tedious and outdated endeavor. This is particularly problematic for Christians, as many find it difficult to read even the Bible consistently and attentively. Reading is in desperate need of recovery.

    Recovering the Lost Art of Reading addresses these issues by exploring the importance of reading in general as well as studying the Bible as literature, offering practical suggestions along the way. Leland Ryken and Glenda Faye Mathes inspire a new generation to overcome the notion that reading is a duty and instead discover it as a delight.

    The pandemic, political dissension, racial division, abuse scandals---contemporary churches are navigating a lot of potholes, and some wonder if it's really worthwhile to gather each week. Hansen and Leeman say yes! Underscoring the importance of in-person preaching, teaching, membership, and more, they remind readers that the discipline of being physically present is vital to God's mission. 160 pages, softcover from Crossway.

    "A Christian without a church is a Christian in trouble."

    Since a global pandemic abruptly closed places of worship, many Christians have skipped church life, even neglecting virtual services. But this was a trend even before COVID-19. Polarizing issues, including political and racial strife, convinced some people to pull away from the church and one another. Now it's time to recommit to gathering as brothers and sisters in Christ.

    In Rediscover Church, Collin Hansen and Jonathan Leeman discuss why church is essential for believers and God's mission. Through biblical references and personal stories, they show readers God's true intention for corporate gathering: to spiritually strengthen members as individuals and the body of Christ. In an age of church-shopping and livestreamed services, rediscover why the future of the church relies on believers gathering regularly as the family of God.

    Reedeming Our Thinking About History: A God-Centered Approach
    $24.99

    Christians reject a cyclical view of history where events recur repeatedly for no apparent purpose. God is in control. There's a beginning and end, with a fourfold creation, fall, redemption, and consummation. What are the implications, then, for analyzing the past, writing a coherent history, and interpreting God's ongoing will? 

    Why Is It Critical for Christians to Study the Past?

    How does knowledge of the past shape Christians' views of God, Christ's redemption, and humanity as a whole? In his new book, Vern S. Poythress teaches Christians how to study and write about the past by emphasizing God's own command to remember his works and share them with the next generation. Readers will explore concepts such as providentialism, Christian historiography, divine purpose, and the 4 basic phases of biblical history: creation, fall, redemption, and consummation. By learning how to appropriately study history, believers will begin to recognize God's lordship over all events and how even minor incidents fit into his overarching plan.

  • Excellent Resource for Seminary Students, Pastors, and Historians: Poythress explains how to write about history, understand God's divine purposes, explore history in the Bible, and more
  • Applicable: Teaches readers how to glorify God by recognizing his deeds throughout history

    Removing the Stain of Racism From the Southern Baptist Convention

    REMOVING THE STAIN OF RACISM FROM THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION
    $24.99

    The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has a historical stain. The SBC once affirmed slavery and openly opposed and condemned abolitionists. Even though the convention repented of this sin publicly, a profound divide between the white majority and the black and brown minority still exists for many churches.

    This stain is more than historical fact; it prohibits Southern Baptist churches from embracing the one new man in Christ promised in Ephesians 2:11–22 and from participating in the new song of the saints from every tongue, tribe, people, and nation in Revelation 5:9.

    The glorious gospel of Jesus Christ commands all his followers to do our part in removing racism from our midst. Removing the Stain of Racism from the Southern Baptist Convention is a powerful and practical call to sacrifice, humility, and perseverance—along with a relentless commitment to Christian unity—for the sake of the gospel and our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Even though the convention repented of this sin publicly, a profound divide between the white majority and the black and brown minority still exists for many churches.

    This stain is more than historical fact; it prohibits Southern Baptist churches from embracing the one new man in Christ promised in Ephesians 2:11-22 and from participating in the new song of the saints from every tongue, tribe, people, and nation in Revelation 5:9.

    The glorious gospel of Jesus Christ commands all his followers to do our part in removing racism from our midst. Removing the Stain of Racism from the Southern Baptist Convention is a powerful and practical call to sacrifice, humility, and perseverance--along with a relentless commitment to Christian unity--for the sake of the gospel and our brothers and sisters in Christ.

    Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture

    Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture
    $14.99

    Although burnout is growing increasingly common among men in ministry, it doesn’t have to be inevitable. Pastor and counselor David Murray offers men gospel-centered hope for avoiding and recovering from burnout, setting a more sustainable pace.

    How did I get here?

    These are the words of many Christian men on the brink of burnout or in the midst of breakdown. They are exhausted, depressed, anxious, stressed, and joyless. Their time is spent doing many good things, but their pace is unsustainable-- lacking the regular rest, readjustment, and recalibration they need.

    But there is good news: God has graciously provided a way for men to reset their lives to a more sustainable pace. Drawing on personal experiences--and time spent counseling other men in the midst of burnout--David Murray offers weary men hope for the future, helping them identify the warning signs of burnout and offering practical strategies for developing patterns that are necessary for living a grace-paced life and reaching the finish line with their joy intact.

    Sacred Marriage

    Sacred Marriage
    $19.99

    Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages. Revised Edition.

    What if God designed marriage to make you holy instead of happy? What if your relationship isn't as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God?

    In Sacred Marriage, bestselling author Gary Thomas uncovers the ways that your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and with each other. Join over one million others who have already uncovered Thomas's tips for fostering a sacred marriage.

    Within the pages of Sacred Marriage, Thomas invites you to see how God can use your relationship with your spouse as a discipline and a motivation to love God more and reflect more of the character of his Son.

    In addition to life-changing insights from Scripture, church history, and time-tested wisdom from Christian classics, you'll find practical advice and techniques to make your marriage happier by becoming holier husbands and wives.

    In Sacred Marriage, Thomas will give you all of the tools you need to:

  • Turn marital struggles into spiritual and personal appreciation
  • Love your spouse with a stronger sense of purpose
  • Confront your weaknesses and sin in order to grow your relationship with God and with your spouse
  • Partner in the spiritual growth and character formation of your spouse
  • Transform a tired marriage into a relationship filled with awe and respect
  • Thomas reveals that sacred marriages teach us to love God and others well by fostering a healthy sex life, a strong prayer life, and a rich spiritual life. God uses our marriages to help us grow in character, in prayer, in worship, and in service--we just have to recognize that the purpose of marriage is holiness, not happiness.

    Each copy also includes thought-provoking discussion questions designed to spark conversation between couples and small groups, allowing you to dive deeper into the lessons that Thomas shares in Sacred Marriage.

    Join the one million others who have already started on their journey to transforming their relationship with their spouses and with their Creator.
