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 grow as thankful women of God.

    We are often encouraged to count our blessings. But truly biblical gratitude is much more than this.

    Mary K. Mohler unpacks Scripture to help us grow in gracious gratitude--thanking God for who he is, as well as natural gratitude-- thanking him for his blessings. She also helps women to identify and deal with some of the things that hinder them so that they can rediscover the joy of a thankful heart.

    This thoroughly Bible-centered unpacking of the reasons for gratitude builds on Mary K. Mohler's 25 years experience in mentoring seminary wives at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

    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.

    $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.

    $14.99

    Feeling stuck in an endless loop of losing and regaining weight? TerKeurst understands the struggle and invites you to take a new approach. In this revised and condensed edition of Made to Crave, she'll help you make peace with your body, replace rationalizations with wisdom, reach healthy goals, and grow closer to God.

    *I'll Start Again Monday is a newly revised and condensed version of Lysa's bestseller Made to Crave.*

    Have healthy eating plans left you feeling defeated? 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.

    INVITATION TO BIBLICAL THEOLOGY

    INVITATION TO BIBLICAL THEOLOGY
    $40.39
    New/Used: New

    Invitation to Biblical Theology provides a thorough overview of biblical theology that is accessible for those new to the topic but substantial enough for advanced study. Defining biblical theology as “the study of the whole Bible on its own terms,” Jeremy Kimble and Ched Spellman begin with a brief history of the discipline followed by a survey of contemporary approaches. They then lay out their own approach, built on the framework of the canon, the covenants, and Christ.

    Taking God’s plan of redemption in Christ as the uniting theme of Scripture, Kimble and Spellman survey the grand storyline of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, showing how each division of the canon moves the overarching story forward. The following ten chapters survey central and recurring themes of Scripture including kingdom, worship, Messiah and atonement, God’s glory, and mission. The authors conclude with reflections on how biblical theology can serve the church as well as the academy.

Kennedy takes a four-fold approach to children's ministry: hospitality, teaching, discipleship, and mission.

    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.

    We see Jesus, we believe in Jesus and we wait for Jesus, yet still we suffer. This book offers real and rugged answers in life's dark places. Discover how to live with hope in a fallen, messed- up, wild world, and be encouraged.

    Walking through Genesis 3, Dan DeWitt shows us how we can look at this world realistically but without despairing, as we wait for God to keep his promise to bring us out of the wild and into his new creation. It's the contrast between Eden, where everything reflects God's perfection, and exile, where everything is spoiled by sin. The book helps us survive living in exile - Life in the Wild - until "the glorious day when God will welcome us home, out of the wild".

    This book holds dark and light in balance. It shows how we are living with the effects of the fall (we are messed-up people living in a messed-up place) - but God's promise, made in Eden, serves as a beacon of light to guide our steps in this fallen 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.

  • take ownership of their mistakes and forgive others for their mistakes.
  • 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. With childlike faith, enthusiasm, and great whimsy, young hearts will feel instantly connected to a love that acts as much as it feels. Children will walk away with a sense of wonder at how great God is and will feel empowered to do things that will make a tangible difference in the world.

    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

    Chronological, integrated, with an illuminating harmony of the scripture. Read the Bible in real time with this Bible set in an innovative, new, chronological and harmony based format. Explore Scripture through this integrated approach and see the Bible unfold in a new way as the events of the Bible are set in parallel. It s more than just a chronological Bible, it s also a harmony of the Bible. Passages of Scripture and individual events are arranged in their sequential order. And when there are multiple versions of an event, these stories are told side-by-side, connecting the dots to open up deeper understanding as you read the different accounts together.

    This Bible allows you to see the beautiful and intricate interconnectedness of the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation in pure harmony. Set in a chronologically-based format, this Bible will open your eyes to the way that the Bible reflects upon itself throughout its pages. For instance, you can read Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John s telling of Jesus feeding the 5,000---presented in four columns right next to each other. When you read David s story about hiding from Saul in the wilderness, on the same page you ll read the psalm he wrote as he lay waiting, wondering when God would deliver him.

    Features include:

  • The entire text of the NIV translation with the order of events arranged chronologically
  • Parallel passages (or passages that are related) are arranged side-by-side in columns.
  • Sectional introductions on chronology and dating (e.g. Creation Through the Patriarchs, Exodus to Conquest)
  • Some examples:

  • 2-column: David in the cave (1 Samuel 22:1 5 -- Psalm 142 )
  • 3-column: Peter s confession (Mt 16:13 23 -- Mk 8:27 33 -- Lk 9:18 22)
  • 4-column: Feeding 5,000 (Mt 14:13 21 -- Mk 6:32 44 -- Lk 9:10 17 -- Jn 6:1 13)
  • General Editor: JOHN R. KOHLENBERGER III

Kohlenberger III (MA, Western Seminary) is the author or coeditor of more than four dozen biblical reference books and study Bibles, including The Strongest Strong s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, NIV Interlinear Hebrew-English Old Testament, NIV Bible Concordance, NIV Greek-English New Testament, and the award-winning NIV Exhaustive Concordance and Expositor's Bible Commentary: Abridged Edition.

Once you've begun your verse mapping journey, you can use the blank maps to branch out on your own. More than simply reading a verse or Scripture passage, verse mapping means using Bible study tools to research what you've just read in the Bible--to learn more about what God is saying to you and how you can apply his Word to your life today.

    In the NIV Verse Mapping Bible, author Kristy Cambron shows you the basics and helps you to discover the joy of verse mapping, allowing you to make this five-step process part of your daily Bible study. Verse mapping will help you learn the historical context, transliteration, translation, connotation, and theological framework of a verse. This unique study technique includes exploring Hebrew and Greek word studies, finding connections in Scripture, comparing Bible translations, and learning as much as you can from your time in God's Word.

    Verse mapping involves five steps:

    1. Choose: Select a verse and write it out.
    2. Compare: Record this verse in two or three other Bible translations and underline key words that are the same or different between translations.
    3. Research: Look up the Hebrew or Greek meaning for the underlined words and record it.
    4. Consider: Ask questions of the verse. Imagine what it would be like to have experienced what's happening. Read the verses surrounding this verse and use other study tools to dig even deeper, if you prefer.
    5. Apply: What is God saying to you? How does this verse relate to your life today?

    Features:

  • Full text of the accurate, readable, and clear New International Version (NIV)

    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.

    $14.99

    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.

    Recovering the Lost Art of Reading

    Recovering the Lost Art of Reading
    $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.

    Rediscover Church: Why the Body of Christ is Essential
    $12.99

    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

    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
  • Biblical and Informative: Outlines 4 phases of history and connects them to Christ's redemption
