  • Not So Secret Secret To Reaching The Next Generation

    $7.99

    5 Christlike Ways to Inspire the Next Generation for Christ

    Church leaders are continuously concerned they might lose the next generation of faithful believers. They’ve scoured for practical and effective ways to disciple young Christians, often resorting to adopting new and exciting programs, emotional appeals, or mere moralism. However helpful these attempts are, they all too often lack one critical element-Christ.

    In this concise booklet, bestselling author Kevin DeYoung presents 5 Christlike ways to effectively communicate the Christian faith and practice with the next generation. DeYoung reminds leaders that they won’t ultimately impact young hearts with cleverness, humor, or good looks but by walking with Jesus and following his ways-grab them with passion, win them with love, hold them with holiness, challenge them with truth, and amaze them with God.

    *How to Reach the Next Generation of Christians: Unpacks 5 practical and biblically sound points to lead the next generation to Christ

    *Useful for Church Leaders: Pastors, youth workers, campus staff, and anyone else who wants to pass the faith on to the next generation

    *Written by Bestselling Author Kevin DeYoung: Author of Just Do Something; Impossible Christianity; and The Biggest Story

    *Concise Repack: This portion was originally published within Don’t Call It a Comeback by Kevin DeYoung, ed.

    Who is The Ex-Muslim’s Guide to Christianity for?

    Ostracized. Alone. Disoriented. You’ve left your family, community, and everything you’ve known behind. You may have found a loving church community, but no one really understands what it’s been like. It feels like there are disconnects between what you know about faith and how your fellow Christians seem to understand God. Perhaps other churchgoers speak of a closeness with the Holy Spirit that you can’t seem to connect with. You’re not alone… and the blocks between your Muslim-based thought patterns and Christian theology are very real.

    The goal of this book is to help ex-Muslim Christians navigate their faith by recognizing and correcting common misunderstandings imported from an Islamic worldview. Kenza Haddock knows the unique challenges faced by ex-Muslims and emphasizes that relating to God as our Heavenly Father is key to understanding:

    *God’s voice vs. “Allah’s voice”
    *Prayer vs. ritual
    *Our identity in Christ
    *How to stand firm in the face of persecution
    *What the afterlife looks like for a Christian

    *How is Jesus different from Mohammed?
    *How is God’s character different from Allah’s?
    *How do I walk in step with the Holy Spirit?
    *How do I deal with relatives who constantly persecute me for my Christian faith?

    There are dozens of books for evangelism and missionary work, but The Ex-Muslim’s Guide to Christianity speaks straight to ex-Muslims with experienced understanding, deep compassion, and life-saving truths.

  • Does Christianity Still Make Sense

    $17.99

    A chronic doubter responds to 20 of the most difficult questions about Christianity

    From the Foreword by J. Warner Wallace: “A book written by a man who has genuinely struggled with the questions, wrestled with doubts, and emerged faithful on the other side.
    He understands you.”

    Does Christianity still make sense? Years after Bobby Conway became a Christian, this question haunted him. Even though by then, he was the pastor of a thriving church, it seemed as if his entire belief structure was being dismantled. Had he been duped?
    Perhaps you can relate to how Bobby felt. Maybe you find yourself questioning in the same way.

    In this book, Bobby describes his own long journey through chronic doubt to a settled and confident trust. In this book, he responds to the twenty toughest challenges to the Christian faith, including these difficult questions:

    *Why are there so many scandals in the Church?
    *Aren’t Christians just a bunch of hypocrites?
    *Why do Christians use God’s name to oppress others?
    *Why are so many Christians racists?
    *Why does God allow evil in the world?
    *Is there reliable evidence for God’s existence?

    Join Bobby in this book as he explores these questions and many more while describing how he was hammered with doubts for years.

  • What If Its All True

    $14.99

    What if it’s all true? What if the Bible truly is the words of God written down by the hands of men? What if Jesus was more than just a good teacher but actually the Son of God – what might that mean to you and me personally?

    Jesus claimed, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life (John 8:12).” Is it possible that we may not yet fully appreciate all that Jesus offers us? Could we have been so focused on the busyness of life that we miss that which is of greatest importance?

    In this short, accessible book, Rick Beckwith who has served with Young Life for more than 40 years, explores this question by investigating the Person and promises of Jesus.

    He answers questions like:

    *Who is Jesus?
    *What is truth and where is it found?
    *What is our purpose in life?
    *What did Jesus promise those who follow him?
    *Do painful experiences nullify what is true?
    *What if Jesus really did rise from the dead – so what?
    *What is the cost of ignoring Jesus’s true identity?

    In a culture that views absolute truth as a fixture of the past, it is necessary to have a deeper explanation of the hope available to us in Jesus. If this explanation is indeed plausible and the Bible is true, then the implications for how we live are nothing short of profound!

  • Deconstruction Of Christianity

    $17.99

    A groundbreaking book on the true nature of faith deconstruction

    Alisa and Tim help the reader to deconstruct the deconstructionists and thus to respond to them, both with arguments and with love and sensitivity. This is a timely book! — Carl Trueman, author of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self

    A movement called ‘deconstruction’ is sweeping through our churches and it is affecting our loved ones. It has disrupted, dismantled, and destroyed the faith of so many, and this book can help you not only understand what’s happening but also stand your ground and respond with clarity and confidence.

    *Maybe you have a loved one who is deconstructing their faith, and you are struggling to know how to respond;

    *Maybe you are trying to understand the radical spiritual makeover your friend or family member is going through;

    *Maybe your relationship with a loved one has been strained or even cut off because of your “toxic” Christian beliefs and you don’t know what to do;

    *Maybe you’re experiencing doubt yourself and facing hard questions about truth, God, the Bible, theology and the gospel.

    Some who leave the faith feel wounded by the church. Others feel repressed by some of the moral imperatives found in Scripture. For some, it leads to a custom-made spirituality. For others, deconstructing their faith leads them away from the truth into agnosticism, atheism, the occult, or humanism.

    In this seminal book, Alisa Childers, author of Another Gospel?, and Tim Barnett, creator of Red Pen Logic, will help you understand what deconstruction is, where it comes from, why it is compelling to some, and how it disorients the lives of so many. You will be able to think through the main issues around faith deconstruction and explore wise and loving ways to respond from a biblical worldview.

  • Is God Real

    $28.99

  • Street Smarts : Using Questions To Answer Christianity’s Toughest Challenge

    $22.99

    Street Smarts by Gregory Koukl helps Christians better engage in productive conversations with those who challenge their convictions on a variety of issues. A follow-up to Koukl’s best-selling Tactics, this book focuses on revealing the fundamental flaws in common, current challenges to Christian beliefs and values. It then provides individual strategies to exploit those shortcomings by offering model questions and sample dialogues to help guide believers in genial, yet persuasive, conversations.

    Koukl begins by explaining the important difference in evangelism between a harvest approach (reaping) and a gardening approach (sowing). He then provides an overview of the tactical game plan he uses to have fruitful “gardening” conversations with those who are not yet Christians. Subsequent chapters tackle specific areas of challenge that Christians frequently face in discussions “on the street,” as it were–in those conversations with friends, family, or critics that believers often avoid because they feel out of their element, vulnerable, or exposed.

    With the specific challenges he addresses, Koukl shows precisely how and why each falters. instructing the reader in a lucid, well-organized, and easy-to-follow fashion. He then provides a specific set of questions–the same questions Koukl uses in his own encounters–that are embedded in sample mini-dialogues the Christian can use to exploit those flaws in an amicable, yet incisive, way.

    Some questions are used to get the discussion moving forward in a disarming fashion. Others are aimed more directly at the flaws or liabilities of the typical challenges people raise. Questions encourage challengers to think more carefully about their objections or consider problems with their own views that they may not have considered or even have been aware of.

    Street Smarts equips Christians to handle tough challenges in a straightforward and user-friendly way. It provides the practical tools they need to keep them in the driver’s seat of otherwise difficult and discomfiting conversations. It enables them to stand up for Christ in a safe, genial, yet effective way.

  • Chasing Proof Finding Faith

    $17.99

    He had science and an Ivy League pedigree-why did he need God? Immersed in his physics studies at Cornell, Tom Rudelius never thought much about God until his brother, a new convert to Christianity, challenged him to explore faith. To placate his twin, he reluctantly began exploring the Bible and the life of Jesus. Seeking proof of God’s existence, he found himself in a world of uncertainty, faced with plenty of reasons for both faith and doubt.

    In Chasing Proof, Finding Faith, Tom, now a rising young theoretical physicist, traces his journey to unexpected faith, through subsequent doubt and anxiety, and ultimately to a firmer, life-transforming allegiance to Jesus. Along the way, he explores some of the issues he wrestled with, including:

    *Creation and cosmic origins
    *The problem of evil and suffering
    *The compatibility of miracles with science and the plausibility of Jesus’ resurrection
    *The reliability of the Bible

    While Tom never found absolute proof of God or Christianity, he ultimately concluded that the existing evidence for both is compelling and compatible with science. His searingly honest story is a potent guide for those doubting or exploring faith.

  • Bulwarks Of Unbelief

    $32.99

    How modernity creates atheists–and what the church must do about it.

    Millions of people in the West identify as atheists. Christians often respond to this reality with proofs of God’s existence, as though rational arguments for atheism were the root cause of unbelief. In Bulwarks of Unbelief, Joseph Minich argues that a felt absence of God, as experienced by the modern individual, offers a better explanation for the rise in atheism. Recent technological and cultural shifts in the modern West have produced a perceived challenge to God’s existence. As modern technoculture reshapes our awareness of reality and belief in the invisible, it in turn amplifies God’s apparent silence. In this new context, atheism is a natural result. And absent of meaning from without, we have turned within.

    Christians cannot escape this aspect of modern life. Minich argues that we must consciously and actively return to reality. If we reattune ourselves to God’s story, reintegrate the whole person, and reinhabit the world, faith can thrive in this age of unbelief.

  • Body Of Proof

    $15.99

    Culture is doing its best to convince the world there is nothing special about Jesus. Compounding this is the failure of most churches to grow their followers’ faith beyond a Sunday school understanding. As a result, the most important historical fact of the Christian faith is often the most misunderstood, relegated to Easter and funeral pep talks: the resurrection. And it’s creating a powerless Christianity.

    Dr. Jeremiah Johnston, an acclaimed apologist and scholar, sets out to prove why Christ’s victory over death is central to a believer’s faith. Straightforward, accessible, and practical, this book examines the latest archaeological and textual findings and presents seven tangible, fresh proofs that Jesus really rose from the dead–and why it matters today. When you fully understand the implications of the resurrection, you will begin to understand the power of Christ in you. And it changes everything.

  • How To Know God Exists

    $17.99

    Three questions are etched into everyone’s subconscious: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Josh McDowell and Thomas Williams team up to show why nothing short of God answers these questions. But the problem is that in today’s secularized culture, God has largely been banished.

    How to Know God Exists explores in depth solid reasons for believing in God and restoring him to his rightful place in our lives. Josh McDowell is widely known for his powerful defenses of God based on historical and biblical evidences. In this book he and Thomas take a new direction and present often-unexplored but formidable evidences based on sheer reason, observable reality, and solid science. They show that belief in God is not the blind, unthinking, and intellectually indefensible fancy today’s secularism makes it out to be.

    How to Know God Exists will:

    *Offer rational defenses for the existence of God, truth, morality, meaning, and reason

    *Open vistas of beauty and joy denied to readers by the sterility of secularism

    *Use reason, logic, experience, and common sense to show that God offers the truth required to make sense of reality and bring meaning and joy to life

    By reason and common sense, How to Know God Exists shows that meaning itself is rooted in the existence of God.

  • Air We Breathe

    $16.99

    Is Christianity history? Or is Christian history the deepest explanation of the modern world?

    Today in the west, many consider the church to be dead or dying. Christianity is seen as outdated, bigoted and responsible for many of society’s problems. This leaves many believers embarrassed about their faith and many outsiders wary of religion. But what if the Christian message is not the enemy of our modern Western values, but the very thing that makes sense of them?

    In this fascinating book, Glen Scrivener takes readers on a journey to discover how the teachings of Jesus not only turned the ancient world upside down, but continue to underpin the way we think of life, worth, and meaning. Far from being a relic from the past, the distinctive ideas of Christianity, such as freedom, kindness, progress and equality, are a crucial part of the air that we breathe. As author Glen Scrivener says in his introduction: “The extraordinary impact of Christianity is seen in the fact that we don’t notice it.

    This is a book for both believers and sceptics–giving Christians confidence to be open about their faith and showing non-Christians the ways in which the message of Jesus makes sense of their most cherished beliefs. Whoever you are, you’ll gain a deeper appreciation for the values you hold dear as you discover the power and profundity of Jesus and his revolution.

  • Never Ashamed : Stories Of Sharing Faith With Scoffers And Skeptics

    $14.99

    Most books on evangelism deal primarily with different approaches to sharing the good news. From street ministry to personal witnessing, books abound on how to present the gospel in a variety of ways and situations.

    But Never Ashamed isn’t a book about how. Rather, it’s a book about why. Author Avi Snyder explains:

    *Why we mustn’t be ashamed of sharing the good news in an open and direct fashion.

    *Why believers find it difficult to share the good news of salvation, despite the variety of fruit that always abounds.

    *Why non-believers often choose to walk away from the claims of the Messiah, even when they know or at least suspect in their hearts that His claims are true.

    *Why the early church felt compelled to proclaim His message, regardless of the risks and costs.

    More than this, however, Never Ashamed is a book of stories:

    *The man who told Avi he wouldn’t stop him from jumping out a window.

    *The Marxist lady trying to figure him out who eventually concluded he was a provocateur

    *The woman who prayed for God to give her compassion like Him and wept when she received it

    *The Soviet guard who helped Avi’s team pass out literature

    These and many more encounters that Avi shares will make you laugh, cry, and be filled with joy at the winsome ways in which he brings people to Jesus.

  • Practical Religion : Essential Biblical Truths For Daily Christian Living

    $24.99

    Practical Religion, by J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), was first published in 1878 and is renowned as a theological and apologetic Christian “classic”-esteemed for its clear, profound and penetrating narrative on the practice of genuine Christian living. Within its pages, Ryle masterfully unfolds practical biblical truths in a series of treatises, or “papers” as he calls them, each written to address a critical aspect of where personal faith in Christ and the practice of that faith in holy living unite and are essential for Christian growth and effective discipleship.

    Ryle exposes hypocrisy and nominalism in religion, or “Churchianity” as he calls it, which was as systemic in his day as it is today. His poignant narrative appeals to the evangelical Church as well as to individuals who profess to be Christians-a call to self-examination in all things, and a return to sound Biblical truths seriously and practically applied in every aspect of life.

    Ryle’s powerful, engaging style penetrates the heart and challenges the mind of its readers and is not for the faint of heart. Ryle’s design is to stir the hearts and minds of those who genuinely and humbly seek a deeper abiding, surrendered life in Christ. No wonder his equally renowned contemporary English minister, Charles Spurgeon, considered Ryle “An evangelical champion. One of the bravest and best of men.” J.I. Packer calls Practical Religion, “The manual for the practice of Christianity.”

    J. C. (John Charles) Ryle was the first Bishop of Liverpool, England, and one of the most influential evangelical ministers and writers of the nineteenth century. He was renowned for his rare ability to bring the riches of Biblical truth, plainly and powerfully, to the hearts of his hearers and readers.

    Practical Religion will enrich the believer’s walk with Christ and provide the Church with much needed insight for preaching and living genuine Christianity, now and in every generation!

  • Miracles Today : The Supernatural Work Of God In The Modern World

    $24.99

    Do miracles still happen today? This book demonstrates that miraculous works of God have been part of the experience of the church around the world since Christianity began and that they continue into the present.

    This book gives an accessible and concise overview of one of Keener’s most significant research topics. Keener’s earlier two-volume work on miracles stands as the definitive work on the topic, but its size and scope are daunting to many readers. This work summarizes Keener’s basic argument but contains substantial new material, including new accounts of the miraculous. It is suitable as a textbook but also accessible to church leaders and laypeople.

    Through fascinating conversations with respected scholars and experts–a neuroscientist from Cambridge University, a researcher who analyzed a thousand accounts of near-death experiences, and an atheist-turned-Christian-philosopher–Strobel offers compelling reasons for why death is not the end of our existence but a transition to an exciting world to come. Looking at biblical accounts, Strobel unfolds what awaits us after we take our last breath and answers questions like:
    *Is there an afterlife?
    *What is heaven like?
    *How will we spend our time there?
    *And what does it mean to see God face to face?

    With a balanced approach, Strobel examines the alternative of Hell and the logic of damnation, and gives a careful look at reincarnation, universalism, the exclusivity claims of Christ, and other issues related to the topic of life after death. With vulnerability, Strobel shares the experience of how he nearly died years ago and how the reality of death can shape our lives and faith. Follow Strobel on this journey of discovery of the entirely credible, believable, and exhilarating life to come.

  • Believing Is Seeing

    $17.99

    Is your worldview enlightened enough to accommodate both science and God at the same time?

    Dr. Michael Guillen, a best-selling author, Emmy award-winning journalist and former physics instructor at Harvard, used to be an Atheist-until science changed his mind. Once of the opinion that people of faith are weak, small-minded folks who just don’t understand science, Dr. Guillen ultimately concluded that not only does science itself depend on faith, but faith is actually the mightiest power in the universe.

    In Believing Is Seeing, Dr. Guillen recounts the fascinating story of his journey from Atheism to Christianity, citing the latest discoveries in neuroscience, physics, astronomy, and mathematics to pull back the curtain on the mystery of faith as no one ever has.

    Is it true that “seeing is believing?” Or is it possible that reality can be perceived most clearly with the eyes of faith-and that truth is bigger than proof? Let Dr. Guillen be your guide as he brilliantly argues for a large and enlightened worldview consistent with both God and modern science.

  • I Dont Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist (Revised)

    $21.99

    To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.

    Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

  • Another Gospel : A Lifelong Christian Seeks Truth In Response To Progressiv

    $17.99

    A movement seeks to redefine Christianity. Some think it’s a much-needed progressive reformation. Others believe it’s an attack on historic Christianity.Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She had been raised in a Christian home, where she’d seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor, who called himself a hopeful agnostic.Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith.

Or you may have encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity in your everyday life and aren’t sure how to respond. A progressive blog post can send anyone down a rabbit’s trail of questions. In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. Alisa’s story will show you how to identify and respond to the ideas of progressive Christianity as you rest in what’s unmistakably true.

  • Is Jesus History

    $16.99

    What can we really know for sure about the past? Can anything from ancient history be regarded as ‘fact’? In particular, how seriously can we take the historical sources for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth? Did he really even live in first-century Galilee and Judaea, or is he a figure of legend?

    In this timely book, historian Dr John Dickson unpacks how the field of history works, giving readers the tools to evaluate for themselves what we can confidently say about figures like the Emperor Tiberius, Alexander the Great, Pontius Pilate, and, of course, Jesus of Nazareth.

    He presents the evidence, methods, and conclusions of mainstream scholars–both Christian and not–and asks some pertinent contemporary questions, without offering any pushy answers: If Jesus really did exist, what are we to make of his own claims and those of his followers, and what would any of it mean for us today?

  • Undeniable Evidence : 10 Of The Top Scientific Facts In The Bible

    $16.99

    Even though the Bible wasn’t written as a scientific book, it contains amazing scientific facts that were penned thousands of years before man discovered them-facts regarding the earth being round, its free float in space, laws of quarantine, the existence of the dinosaur, and many others.

    Although Christians don’t need convincing that the Bible is the Word of God (because they have met the Author), such gems in Scripture tend to warm the heart and solidify our faith.

    While this publication is written primarily for Christians, unbelievers-who are perhaps interested in the Bible’s immutable promise of everlasting life-may like to examine the undeniable evidence, and consider the implications if its offer of Heaven and warning of Hell are indeed true.

  • Natures Case For God

    $11.99

    Can we know anything about God apart from the Bible?

    Many Protestant Christians are suspicious of natural theology, which claims that we can learn about God through revelation outside the Bible. How can we know anything about God apart from Scripture? In Nature’s Case for God, distinguished theologian John Frame argues that Christians are not forbidden from seeking to learn about God from his creation. In fact, the Bible itself shows this to be possible.

    In nine short and lucid chapters that include questions for discussion, Frame shows us what we can learn about God and how we relate to him from the world outside the Bible. If the heavens really do declare the glory of God, as the psalmist claims, it makes a huge difference for how we understand God and how we introduce him to those who don’t yet know Christ.
