$14.99

I feel so overwhelmed.

Many women don't realize they're running at an unsustainable pace until it hurts them physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Drawing on many years of counseling and their own experiences of burnout, wife and husband team Shona and David Murray want to help you slow down to a more grace-paced life--enabling you to avoid the pitfall of burnout, cultivate sustainable habits for the future, and experience the rest of body and soul that God intends for you.

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.

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.

Rethink Your Self: The Power of Looking Up Before Looking In

Rethink Your Self: The Power of Looking Up Before Looking In
$17.99

Follow your heart. You do you. You are enough.

 

We take these slogans for granted, but what if this path to personal happiness leads to a dead-end? In Rethink Your Self, Trevin Wax encourages you to rethink some of our society’s most common assumptions about identity and the road to happiness.

 

Most people define their identity and purpose by first looking in (to their desires), then looking around (to express their uniqueness), and finally—maybe—looking up (to add a spiritual dimension to life). Rethink Your Self proposes a counter-intuitive approach: looking up before looking in. 

 

It's only when we look up to learn who we were created to be that we discover our true purpose and become our truest selves.

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.

    Surprised By Jesus

    Surprised By Jesus
    $16.99

    When God-in-the-flesh showed up twenty centuries ago in Palestine, the religious PhDs rejected him and the prostitutes and social outcasts flocked to him. Why? Because the open welcome of divine grace that Jesus offers, open to anyone who would simply leave their moral resume at home, is not predictable. It is not safe. It is subversive... 

    In this book, Dane Ortlund reflects on this subversive grace as it uniquely emerges in each of the four Gospel accounts. In each Gospel, the message and mission of Jesus is deeply surprising: 

    • In Matthew, we see the surprise of disobedient obedience. 
    • In Mark, we see the surprise of the king undergoing the fate of a criminal. 
    • In Luke, we see the surprise of the insiders becoming outsiders and the outsiders becoming insiders. 
    • In John, we see the surprise of the Creator of the universe becoming one of his own creatures. 

    Such surprises confound our law-marinated hearts. But the good news that Jesus won with his own blood will not be tamed. This good news is defiant. This book exists to exult in this good news and the scandalous mercy Jesus loves to pour out on needy sinners—on people like you and me.

    Systematic Theology (2nd Edition)

    Systematic Theology (2nd Edition)
    $59.99

    If you are someone who thinks theology is hard to understand or boring, then this second edition of Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem will likely change your mind. Each chapter of this most popular systematic text of the last 25 years has been thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded, while retaining its lucid explanations, practical applications, and emphasis on the scriptural basis of doctrine. It also includes recent controversies on topics like Trinitarian doctrine, the role of women, seeker-sensitive churches, free grace, creation and evolution, perspectives on Paul, and more.

    This new edition of Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem may be the most important resource you can own for helping you understand Scripture and grow as a Christian.

    The most widely used resource of the last 25 years in its area, Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem has been thoroughly revised and expanded (all 57 chapters) for the first time while retaining the features that have made it the standard in its field: clear explanations, an emphasis on each doctrine's scriptural basis, and practical applications to daily life.

    Praise for the second edition:

    After a quarter century of remarkable usefulness globally . . . it remains remarkable. I thank God for this precious gift to Christ's people worldwide. - John Piper

    Stands out for its clarity and accessibility. - Thomas R. Schreiner

    One of those rare works that can challenge the scholar and instruct the beginner . . . It is simply indispensable. - Jack Deere

    With nearly 250 pages of new content and revisions that took several years, this new edition now includes the following distinctive features, making it even better:

  • Updated, fuller analysis of several recent controversies within evangelicalism, including the eternal relationship between the Father and the Son in the Trinity, the question of God's atemporal eternity, the role of women in the church, seeker-sensitive churches, miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, and contemporary worship music.
  • New, thoughtful critiques of open theism, the new perspective on Paul, Molinism (or middle knowledge), Free Grace theology, and the preterist view of Christ's second coming
  • Completely revised, stronger chapter on the clarity of Scripture
  • Completely revised, stronger chapter on creation and evolution, including a longer critique of theistic evolution and an extensive discussion on the age of the earth
  • New discussion of how biblical inerrancy applies to some specific problem verses in the Gospels
  • Additional material respectfully explaining evangelical Protestant differences with Roman Catholicism (with extensive interaction with the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church), Protestant liberalism, and Mormonism
  • Completely updated bibliographies
  • All Scripture quotations updated from RSV to ESV
  • An explanation of why monogenes in John 3:16 and elsewhere should be translated as only begotten rather than merely only (this is a change from the first edition)
  • A contemporary worship song added at the end of each chapter (while retaining the traditional hymns as well)
  • New discussion on the impassibility of God
  • An extensive discussion on the eternal submission of the Son to the Father, taking into account controversies in recent years
  • Updated section on contemporary worship music
  • A discussion of recent criticisms of the penal substitutionary view of the atonement
  • Numerous other updates and corrections that have be prompted by letters and emails from people around the world and by interaction with the students Wayne has taught over the last 26 years both at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and at Phoenix Seminary
  • Part of the brilliance of Systematic Theology over the years has been its simplicity and ease of use. Each chapter follows the same structure. First, there is discussion of the doctrine being considered, such as justification or the Trinity or the deity of Christ. An explanation of that doctrine's biblical support and possible objections follow. Personal application and key terms to know for personal growth are then provided. Chapters also include a Scripture memory passage, references to other literature on the topic, and suggested hymns and worship songs.

    If you are someone who thinks theology is hard to understand or boring, then this new edition of Systematic Theology will likely change your mind.

    The Death of Porn: Men of Integrity Building a World of Nobility

    The Death of Porn: Men of Integrity Building a World of Nobility
    $16.99

    The Death of Porn by Ray Ortlund is a series of personal letters written to men assaulted by the porn industry. Every man can experience his true royalty—not through self-help, but by believing the gospel. Pastor Ortlund paints the picture of a whole generation redefining their future with new dignity and confident purpose.

    Your Battle against Porn Isn't about Porn. It's about Hope.

    Pornography may seem inescapable, but God can free us from its destructive power. The gospel replaces the dehumanizing lies of pornography with this surprising truth: God created us as royalty. How then can we reclaim our God-given identity to take a stand against--and ultimately starve--the predatory porn industry?

    In The Death of Porn, Ray Ortlund writes six personal letters, as from a father to his son. Ideal for individuals and small groups, it will give hope to men who have been misled by porn into devaluing themselves and others. Through Scripture and personal stories, Ortlund assures readers that God loves them the most tenderly in their moments of deepest shame. The Death of Porn inspires men to come together in new ways to fight the injustice of porn and build a world of nobility for every man and woman--for the sake of future generations.

    The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness

    The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness
    $4.99
    What are the marks of a supernaturally changed heart? This is one of the questions the Apostle Paul addresses as he writes to the church in Corinth. He's not after some superficial outward tinkering, but instead a deep rooted, life altering change that takes place on the inside. In an age where pleasing people, puffing up your ego and building your resume are seen as the methods to make it, the Apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self forgetfulness. In this short and punchy book, best selling author Timothy Keller, shows that gospel humility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self condemnation. A truly gospel humble person is not a self hating person or a self loving person, but a self forgetful person. This freedom can be yours...

    The Friend Who Forgives

    THE FRIEND WHO FORGIVES
    $14.99

    Do you ever talk before you think? Mess up? Let others down?

    That's what Peter did, again and again and again, and it led him to abandoning his best friend, Jesus.

    Peter loved Jesus. He felt terrible when he pretended not to know him. He thought all was lost when Jesus died.

    But after Jesus rose from the dead, he went and found Peter and forgave him. He explained that his death took the punishment for all of Peter's mistakes and that his resurrection showed that the penalty was lifted.

    Peter spent the rest of his life telling people that if they put their trust in Jesus, they could be forgiven too--again and again and again.

    Children know all about failing, but they don't always experience true forgiveness. This book points them to Jesus, the friend who will forgive them again and again and again.

    There is an accompanying coloring and activity book available for purchase and a board book version for 2-4 year olds.

    The Jesus Music: A Visual Story Of Redemption As Told By Those Who Lived It

    The Jesus Music: A Visual Story Of Redemption As Told By Those Who Lived It
    $29.95

    Follow the remarkable journey through 50 years of contemporary Christian music! Created to complement the stunning documentary film with the same name, this fascinating, photo-packed resource covers the roots of the movement; stories of early pioneers such as Larry Norman, Lovesong, and Stryper; insights from more recent artists including Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, and Kirk Franklin; and more. 208 pages, hardcover from K-LOVE.

    A written and visual complement to the documentary film of the same name, The Jesus Music brings the history of a movement to life. Featuring Contemporary Christian Music artists across five decades, readers will experience the story that has united and changed the lives of people around the world. The Jesus Music: A Visual Story of Redemption as Told by Those Who Lived It shares that story: people creating something they wanted, something that never existed before. Written by music and film historian Marshall Terrill, the book accompanies a documentary film by award-winning directors Jon and Andy Erwin; this written and visual narrative of the genre features historic concerts and candid behind-the-scenes photographs throughout.

    The Jesus Music explores the history, evolution, and redemptive thread of Contemporary Christian music over the last fifty years as it spans the convergence of rock and roll, country, and gospel music. As CCM grows, readers will see California artists as much a part of hippie culture as Christian culture, religious-focused bands and songs denounced by some church leaders of the day, and best-selling artists who rose, and sometimes fell from fame, as they journey through the music and experience the often delicate balances between faith, fame, mission, and humanity as they relate to Christian music.

    The notable voices of Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Kirk Franklin, and TobyMac, as well as the stories of dozens of additional Christian artists, will hit all the right notes and explore:

  • The roots of the movement, spanning from Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash to Switchfoot, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong United, and beyond.
  • The stories of pioneers in the genre, including Larry Norman, Lovesong, and Stryper
  • Insights into how history, culture, and technology shaped the Contemporary Christian music we hear on the radio today.
  • Examples of God's steadfast love as He uses artists despite their human mistakes and shortcomings.
  • How the message of the music transforms lives and has impact beyond artistic expression.
  • The Jesus Music is perfect for anyone looking to explore the history of the genre and discover how God can use us despite our flaws to impact the world.

    The Loveliest Place: The Beauty and Glory of the Church

    The Loveliest Place: The Beauty and Glory of the Church
    $22.99

    The church - which was created by God, bought by Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit - exists to be a reflection of God's indescribable love. Learn to see beyond methodology and structure into the church's eternal beauty with this theologically robust book.

    How Christians Can Rediscover the Beauty and Glory of the Church

    Dear. Precious. Lovely. The Bible describes the church in extraordinary ways, even using beautiful poetry and metaphors. How does this compare to how Christians today describe the church? Unfortunately, many believers focus more on its mission, structure, or specific programs than on its inherent beauty. It's time to spark a renewed affection for the church.

    In The Loveliest Place, Dustin Benge urges Christians to see the holy assembly of God's redeemed people in all its eternal beauty. He explains what makes the church lovely, including the Trinitarian relationship, worship, service, and gospel proclamation. For those who have never learned to view the church as God sees it, or have become disillusioned by its flaws, this book is a reminder that the corporate gathering of believers is a reflection of God's indescribable beauty.

  • Part of the Union Series: Inviting readers to experience deeper enjoyment of God; other volumes include Rejoice and Tremble and Deeper
  • Concise Version Also Available: The Loveliest Place is the full version of Why Should We Love the Local Church?
  • Looks Beyond Methodology: Focuses on the beauty, not just the biblical function, of the church

    Inviting Children to See Jesus from Creation to the Manger

    In the beginning God created the whole world. After six days of work, he had created the stars in the sky, the mighty oceans, tall trees, beautiful flowers, mighty sea creatures, and the most prized of all creation--Adam and Eve. Created in God's image, Adam and Eve were friends with him. But one day "the worst of all days came"--the serpent deceived them and they sinned against God. Adam and Eve's relationship with God was broken.

    But God gave mankind a promise.

    And what a great promise it was!

    The promise of salvation! He promised that one would come who would crush the head of the lying serpent, one who would deliver mankind from their sin, one who would restore man and woman's relationship with God.

    But who has the power to do that? Does Abraham, a great man of faith? Does Moses, a great prophet? What about Joshua, the great conqueror?

    Jason Helopoulos invites you to join him on a journey through the pages of the Bible in search of the promised Savior, from the garden of Eden to a manger in Bethlehem. With captivating illustrations by Rommel Ruiz and easy-to-read language, children and parents alike are invited to come to know the promised one--Jesus Christ.

    The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World
    $16.99

    Stephen J. Nichols is more than a storyteller. He is truly a teacher, presenting a winning apologia for the necessity of church history and the importance of the Reformation for today. The Reformation deals with difficult questions of unity, ecumenism, and pluralism, and---despite its playful tone---it considers these issues in the spirit of the Reformation. Accordingly, The Reformation also contains an appendix of source documents, including excerpts from the Ninety-Five Theses and significant confessions and catechisms.

    Mention history and some might struggle to stifle a yawn. But when presented as a narrative it can often be compelling reading. Stephen J. Nichols takes a key period in time, the Reformation, and presents its major players in a fresh way. From Martin Luther, a simple monk who wielded the mallet, to kings and queens, this book goes behind the scenes to uncover the human side of these larger-than-life Reformers. Along the way readers meet Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, Kings Henry VIII and Edward VI, Lady Jane Grey, Anne Bradstreet, and many others.

    For those wanting to see history in its context, Nichols also provides a sampling of primary source materials. It is an engaging read that will remind readers of the foundational truths that can never be taken for granted by the church in any age. Includes numerous illustrations.

    The Supremacy of God in Preaching

    The Supremacy of God in Preaching
    $19.99

    Plenty of books discuss preaching, but many neglect its fundamental requirement: the preacher's piety. In this revised classic, Piper highlights Jonathan Edwards to show how a minister's spirituality enables him to speak with joy and evoke a response. New chapters include reflections on Bible-oriented vs. entertainment preaching, contextualization, and Piper's reflections on his 33-year pastoral career. 176 pages, hardcover from Crossway.

    A Beautiful Hardcover Edition of John Piper's Enduring Work

    People are starving for the greatness of God. Where will their souls be fed? Can they say, "I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory"? As we look out over the wasteland of a secular society, do we not ask, "Who but Christian preachers will say to the people, 'Behold your God!'?" Who will paint for them the landscape of God's grandeur? Who will remind them with tales of wonder that God has triumphed over every foe? Who will cry out above every crisis, "Your God reigns!"?

    John Piper pleads for preachers to make the supremacy of God the bracing air of their sermons. He longs to see a new generation of preachers, and a revived band of seasoned brothers, set aflame with the grandeur of God--his glory as the goal of preaching, his cross as the ground of preaching, his Spirit as the power of preaching.

    It is fitting that The Supremacy of God in Preaching now appears in hardcover for the first time. It has proven to be an enduring work through the decades.

    Theological Retrieval for Evangelicals: Why We Need Our Past to Have a Future

    Theological Retrieval for Evangelicals: Why We Need Our Past to Have a Future
    $21.99

    Evangelicalism is not commonly known for mining the rich theological heritage handed down from previous generations. Instead, it tends to follow what, in the worst cases, can look like a "me and my Bible" approach to theology. But lately, there has been a restlessness among evangelicals—an aching for theological rootedness that has led some to abandon Protestantism altogether. This book aims to set forth a vision for how engaging historical theology can enrich and strengthen the church today—and highlight how it can be done without abandoning a Protestant identity. By addressing two key doctrines—the doctrines of God and the atonement—and drawing from neglected theologians—Boethius, Gregory the Great, and John of Damascus—this book charts a course for evangelicals eager to draw from the past to meet the challenges of the present.

    Restless for rootedness, many Christians are abandoning Protestantism altogether.

    Many evangelicals today are aching for theological rootedness often found in other Christian traditions. Modern evangelicalism is not known for drawing from church history to inform views on the Christian life, which can lead to a me and my Bible approach to theology. But this book aims to show how Protestantism offers the theological depth so many desire without the need for abandoning a distinctly evangelical identity.

    By focusing on particular doctrines and neglected theologians, this book shows how evangelicals can draw from the past to meet the challenges of the present.

    Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out and Lonely

    Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out and Lonely
    $19.99

    Rejection often finds its way into our hearts at an early age. Perhaps as a child you were teased mercilessly for your hair or clothes, or you received an injury and couldn't play the sport you loved and had to watch from the sidelines, or maybe like Lysa TerKeurst, an adult who should have cared for you and nurtured you, left without explanation. These wounds dig deep into our sense of self, and can resurface in surprising ways as an adult. However, this doesn't have to be the end of the story.

    In Uninvited, Lysa shares honestly from her own struggles with rejection and gives readers concrete truths to combat the lies our old Enemy hurls our way. You can stop feeling left out, because even when you are overlooked by others, you are handpicked by God. You can change your tendencies to either fall apart or control the actions of others by adopting healthy ways to process your hurt. You are designed for a love without limits, a love that will never let go.

    Do you ever feel left out, lonely, or less than? Today, learn the secret of belonging which will help you keep rejections in perspective and be better equipped to foster healthy connections in your relationships.

    In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection from the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over to the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection's ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God. With biblical depth, gut honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will help you:

  • Stop feeling left out by believing that even when you are overlooked by others you are handpicked by God.
  • Change your tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process your hurt.
  • Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady your soul and restore your confidence in the midst of rejection.
  • Overcome the two core fears that feed your insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.
  • Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken--a love that does not reject or uninvite.

    Until Unity

    Until Unity
    $17.99
    New York Times-bestselling author Francis Chan calls for believers and churches everywhere to align our hearts with God and start taking seriously His numerous commands to unify.

    It is absolutely clear from Scripture that God passionately desires supernatural unity within His Church. Unity is what Jesus prays for, what He commands, and what He says will be our greatest witness to the world.

    If unity is so important to the heart of God, why is the Church one of the most divided groups on earth? While many believe doctrine is at the root of the problem, Francis argues that the real problem is the shallowness or non-existence of our love for each other--rooted in a shallowness in our understanding of the gospel. This is what desperately needs to change.

    The reason that God gifts the Church with leaders is so they can equip God's people in a way that leads to "unity of the faith" (Ephesians 4:13). We have done a poor job at this, but it can all change.

    Those who are believers will hear the call and be "eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace" (v. 3). There will be opposition, but we cannot allow anything to discourage us from giving everything we have to the pursuit of a unified, restored Bride.

    Weep With Me: How Lament Opens a Door for Racial Reconciliation

    Weep With Me: How Lament Opens a Door for Racial Reconciliation
    $16.99

    Gospel unity creates racial harmony.

    However, Martin Luther King Jr. once said that the most segregated hour in America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning. Equipped with the gospel, the church should be the catalyst for reconciliation, yet it continues to ignore immense pain and division.

    In an effort to bridge the canyon of misunderstanding, insensitivity, and hurt, Mark Vroegop writes about the practice of lament, which he defines as "the biblical language of empathy and exile, perseverance and protest." Encouraging you to "weep with those who weep" (Rom. 12:15), Vroegop invites you to mourn with him over the brokenness that has caused division and to use lament to begin the journey toward a diverse and united church.

    When Strivings Cease: Replacing the Gospel of Self-Improvement with the Gospel of Life-Transforming Grace

    When Strivings Cease: Replacing the Gospel of Self-Improvement with the Gospel of Life-Transforming Grace
    $26.99

    Simons has discovered the truth: trying to keep people happy and prove our worth is exhausting---and futile! What we need is God's extravagant, merciful, undeserved grace. Sharing her personal story, biblical insights, and practical applications, teamed with her stunning original artwork, she leads us to the freedom of knowing that, in Christ, we are enough.

    Grace Secures What Striving Cannot

    In this hustling, image-forward age of opportunity, we feel more anxious than ever. Despite all the affirming memes and self-reflections that dominate social media feeds, approval and worth often seem assigned to what we do rather than who we are. And we end up constantly feeling like we're behind, lacking, and failing--at home, at work, with friends, with God.

    Ruth Chou Simons knows something about feeling measured by achievement, performance, and the approval of others. As a Taiwanese immigrant growing up between two cultures, Ruth was always on a mission to prove her worth, until she came to truly understand the one thing that changes everything: the extravagant, undeserved gift of grace from a merciful God. In When Strivings Cease, Ruth guides you on a journey to find freedom from the never-ending quest for self-improvement. She shows you how to

  • confront the ways you look to superficial means of acceptance and belonging;
  • find relief in realizing self-help isn't the answer because you can't be so amazing that you won't need grace;
  • stop seeing God as someone to perform for and start finding delight in responding to his welcome; and
  • let go of trying to rely on your own strength, your own abilities, and your own savvy by truly understanding the freedom Jesus purchased for you.
  • With personal stories, biblical insights, practical applications, and touches of original artwork by Ruth, this transformational book helps you see the beautiful truth that God's favor is the only currency you need--because in Christ you are enough.

    Why Does God Care Who I Sleep With?

    WHY DOES GOD CARE WHO I SLEEP WITH?
    $12.99

    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.
