  • 40 Questions About Pentecostalism

    $23.99

    How to understand the beliefs and practices of Pentecostalism

    At just over a century old, the Pentecostal Movement accounts for over 500 million believers worldwide and continues to grow. Still, confusion abounds over what Pentecostals believe and teach about the Holy Spirit, worship, salvation, healing, and much more.

    In 40 Questions About Pentecostalism, Jonathan Black provides an accessible overview of the historical, theological, biblical, and experiential factors that make Pentecostalism a vibrant and worldwide Christian movement. He answers questions such as these:

    *How did Pentecostalism begin?
    *How are Charismatics different from Pentecostals?
    *Do Pentecostals affirm the prosperity gospel?
    *What is the Pentecostal doctrine of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?
    *What do Pentecostals believe about healing?
    *What ministries has Christ placed in his church according to Pentecostal theology?
    *What is “speaking in tongues”?

    As with all the 40 Questions books, the question-andanswer format offers readers targeted guidance on the questions that matter most to them, and controversial issues are addressed with robust scholarship and in a spirit of grace.

  • Joy Of The Trinity

    $17.99

    It’s hard to know a God we don’t understand, and it’s hard to love a God we don’t know.

    But our God wants to be known and loved, and He’s told us a lot about Himself in the pages of His Word-particularly that He is a “three-in-one” God. Although it is a crucial and classic Christian teaching, understanding the Trinity can be intimidating at first. But it doesn’t have to be!

    Join bestselling author, Bible teacher, and podcaster Tara-Leigh Cobble as she walks you through the triune nature of God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. As you turn each page, you’ll discover a beautiful, foundational view of the Trinity that will not only inform how you relate to God but give you deeper intimacy and greater joy in knowing Him!

  • Coming To Faith Through Dawkins

    $21.99

    Richard Dawkins = Christian evangelist?

    Editors Denis Alexander and Alister McGrath gather other intelligent minds from around the world to share their startling commonality: Richard Dawkins and his fellow New Atheists were instrumental in their conversions to Christianity.

    Despite a wide range of backgrounds and cultures, all are united in the fact that they were first enthusiasts for the claims and writings of the New Atheists. But each became disillusioned by the arguments and conclusions of Dawkins, causing them to look deeper and with more objectivity at religious faith. The fallacies of Christianity Dawkins warns of simply don’t exist.

    Spending time in this fascinating and powerful book is like being invited to the most interesting dinner party you’ve ever attended. Listen as twelve men and women from five different countries across a variety of professions–philosophers, artists, historians, engineers, scientists, and more–explain their journeys from atheism to faith. In the end, you may come away having reached the same conclusion: authentic Christian faith is in fact more intellectually convincing and rational than New Atheism.

  • Set Adrift : Deconstructing What You Believe Without Sinking Your Faith

    $19.99

    How to analyze and reevaluate your Christian beliefs and experiences in the church while keeping the core of your faith intact.

    The number of Christians leaving the church today is significant. Many feel there is no place for them within the faith–they no longer feel at home in their church community or tradition. For various reasons, they are unsettled by the version of Christianity they’ve inherited.

    Stripping away the nonessential aspects of Christianity, Sean McDowell and John Marriott will help you navigate the jarring questions and cultural challenges that lead many to walk away from the faith. You’ll come to recognize that there are other ways Christians throughout history have understood what faithfulness to Jesus looks like.

    Each chapter provides practical advice on how to disassemble, rethink, and reassemble beliefs that are truly Christian and culturally and personally relevant. You’ll learn how you can continue to seek an authentic faith by:

    *Establishing Jesus and his teachings as the foundation.
    *Utilizing the creeds as boundary markers of what is essential.
    *Seeing the entire Bible as a truthful revelation from God.
    *Seeing Christianity as a historic and global tradition that encompasses diverse communities and viewpoints.

    The authors of this book can personally identify with the process of disillusionment that many young believers go through. They wrote Set Adrift as people who had to navigate their own way back through the fog of deconstruction. They wrote it to offer their own personal suggestions for what to do when you’re not sure what to believe anymore.

  • Apostles Creed

    $14.99

    We believe . . . an ancient creed is essential for today.

    A. W. Tozer derived great personal satisfaction and help from the church creeds, and he used them as he preached and taught. This new book draws on four previously published essays and several articles that have never before been published in books.

    Tozer brings the reader through the essential facets of the Christian faith through the Apostles’ Creed:

    *God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit
    *What it means that Jesus was Crucified, Resurrected, Ascended, and Returning
    *How are we to understand The Communion of the Church, Forgiveness, and Eternity

    Beginning with Why the Creeds are Still Important Today and ending with Connecting Our Creeds to Our Deeds, this book brings the reader into a rich experience of the Christian life. If you wish to study the classic truths of biblical doctrine and connect them to a vibrant spiritual life, join Tozer in a journey through The Apostles’ Creed.

  • Human : Made And Remade In The Image Of God

    $10.79

    Being human is complicated! Our bodies, intellects and emotions are all God-given gifts, but we so often find them in varying states of disorder. How then, can we become the full bearers of God’s image that we were made to be?

    In response to this profound question, Ros Clarke helpfully outlines what the Bible has to say about the nature of humanity. Addressing our status as created beings; our purpose in God’s world; our nature as body and soul; and our fall away from God, Human unpacks questions around the issues of identity, sexuality and gender. It then turns to Christ’s example as the perfect human, and considers Jesus’ teaching about each of us being loved, valued and redeemed. A teaching that remains foundational for all discussions around important topics like inclusivity, disability and race.

    Written with both humour and pastoral concern, and including a study guide to aid personal reflection and group discussion, this book will help you consider afresh what it means to be a human.

  • Lords Supper : Our Promised Place Of Intimacy And Transformation With Jesus

    $18.99

    From the very beginning, the Lord’s Supper has stood at the heart of Christian worship. But over the years we’ve trivialized it, squeezing it in between “real” worship. If Jesus lives in us, and the Holy Spirit is poured out on us, why do we need to eat bread and drink grape juice or wine? Does it really matter?

    It does matter-and it’s life-changing, says leading Pentecostal theologian Jonathan Black. With warmth and depth, he explores not only how the table is still a powerful place of transformation and encounter with Jesus, but also how we can experience Christ’s promise of presence, glory, healing, forgiveness, victory, and intimacy when we answer His call to come to the table.

    Whether you’re feeling the lack of His presence, are ashamed of sin in your life, or have never felt anything during Communion, Christ’s invitation to partake in His feast is your invitation to taste and see that the Lord is good.

  • Broken Planet : If There’s A God, Then Why Are There Natural Disasters And

    $10.04

    In Broken Planet, Dr Sharon Dirckx, scientist and apologist, offers a measured and thoughtful case for how there could be a God of love that allows natural disasters.

    The question of suffering is one of the greatest hurdles to Christian faith. When believers respond to the question of why there is suffering in the world, they often turn to the free-will defence. This states that humans make choices for good or ill that can bring about suffering in the lives of others. However, that doesn’t explain why children die of cancer, or why the latest earthquakes, tsunamis or pandemics have been so destructive. These seem to happen not because of our choices, but in spite of them. So how do we make sense of these events?

    Dr. Sharon Dirckx blends argument, science and first-person narrative in this unique book, weaving answers to real questions with compassion and empathy, while also acknowledging the element of mystery we will always live with while on earth.

    Dr Dirckx addresses topics such as:
    *If God exists, why would he make a world with earthquakes and tsunamis?
    *Why is there so much suffering in a natural disaster?
    *Are natural disasters God’s judgement?
    *Is my illness a punishment from God?
    *What kind of God would allow natural disasters and diseases?

    If you have ever struggled to reconcile the idea of a loving God with all the pain in our world, this book will encourage you that belief in such a God is not as unreasonable as it may seem. In fact, it may be where God is revealed most profoundly.

  • What Every Christian Should Know

    $22.97

    We live in a time when believing in anything or nothing is considered equally “truthful.” Many people don’t identify with a specific religion, preferring to think of themselves as “spiritual” to avoid seeming intolerant of other beliefs. This has led to some squishy ideas about right and wrong, as well as false teachings infiltrating our churches.

    More than ever, we must stand firm on the clear teaching of God’s Word. In What Every Christian Should Know, Dr. Robert Jeffress equips you to understand ten core doctrines of Christianity so you can be confident that your faith is built on solid ground and stand strong against false teaching. Each chapter illuminates a core belief of the Christian faith, such as God’s Word, the Trinity, angels and demons, sin, salvation, future things, and more.

    Nothing is more hopeful and beneficial in our trying times than good theology. With vivid illustrations, clear explanations, and practical applications for believers today, this book will help you ground your faith in capital T truth.

  • Counterfeit Kingdom : The Dangers Of New Revelation, New Prophets, And New

    $17.99

    Is there a new reformation happening in the church? It depends on who you ask.

    The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a popular and fast-growing new movement of Christians who emphasize signs and wonders, and teach that God is giving new revelation through new apostles and prophets. But is this biblical Christianity?

    In Test the Spirits, apologists and NAR experts Holly Pivec and Doug Geivett show how the NAR’s key tenets distort the gospel, twist the Scriptures, are influenced by New Age practices, and lead faithful Christians to shipwreck their faith. They also offer practical suggestions for readers who are already influenced by the NAR, who are curious about it, or who have friends or family members who have been swept up by the movement.

    What used to be on the fringes of the church is now mainstream, and many are being influenced by it unaware. This book is a wake-up call.

  • Good And True Story

    $19.99

    Young adults today want authentic answers to their soul-deep questions about God. They want meaningful ways to communicate those answers to others. Most of all, they want to know that they are living a life that matters.

    In A Good and True Story, philosopher, apologist, and international speaker Paul Gould leads readers on an engaging journey through eleven clues that suggest Christianity is not only true but satisfies our deepest longings. This creative foray into the foundations of Christian truth explores the universe, morality, happiness, pain, beauty, and more for readers looking for culturally informed apologetics.

    Ideal for college-age and twentysomething readers, small group leaders, and anyone interested in the intersection of faith, philosophy, and culture, A Good and True Story reminds readers that their search for identity and purpose is a gift from a loving and purposeful God.

  • 3 In One

    $18.97

    Throughout history, Christians have pictured the relationships between Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through analogies. Such illustrations-some from the West but also from Latin America, Asia, Africa, and more-come freighted with theological ramifications that the church has rejected (heresies) or embraced (doctrines). In Three in One, William David Spencer shares a lifetime of insights from teaching within the global church, bringing fresh images and analogies of the Trinity to deepen our theological vocabulary.

    Drawing from his extensive teaching in geographically and culturally diverse contexts and his artist’s passion for evocative words and visuals, Spencer offers readers a rich, multi-faceted, and practical exploration of the Trinity. Alongside historical and contemporary theology and biblical studies, he considers the strengths and shortcomings of various analogies used to explain the Trinity, such as:

    *Light
    *Water
    *The Celtic knot
    *The totem pole
    *Musical harmonies
    *The human body
    *The family

    Readers of Three in One: Analogies for the Trinity will gain a personal understanding of the Trinity as well as tools for teaching about the Trinity in adult and children’s ministry contexts.

  • Person Of Interest

    $19.99

    Dateline featured cold-case detective and best-selling author J. Warner Wallace investigates Jesus, the most significant person in history, like one of his “missing body, cold-cases,” demonstrating why Jesus still matters today, even in a world that is skeptical of the Bible.

    Detective J. Warner Wallace listened to a pastor talk about Jesus and wondered why anyone would think Jesus was a person of interest.

    Wallace was skeptical of the Bible, but he’d investigated several “no-body, missing person” cases in which there was no crime scene, no physical evidence, and no victim’s body. He successfully identified and convicted the killers in these cases, even without evidence from the scene.

    Could the historical life and actions of Jesus be investigated in the same way? Could the truth about Jesus be uncovered even without a body or a crime scene? In Person of Interest, Wallace describes his own personal investigative journey from atheism to Christianity, as he employs a unique investigative strategy to confirm the historicity and deity of Jesus–without relying on the New Testament manuscripts.

    Imagining a scenario in which every New Testament document has been destroyed, Wallace carefully sifts through the evidence from history alone to reconstruct the identity of Jesus as the world’s most important person of interest.

    Person of Interest will:
    *Invite readers into the life of a cold-case detective as he uncovers the truth about Jesus, using the same approach he also employs to solve a real murder case

    *Teach readers how to become good detectives, using an innovative and unique “‘fuse’ and ‘fallout'” investigative strategy they can also use to examine other claims of history

    *Show how Jesus changed the world and why He still matters today

    *Help readers to explore common objections to Christianity

    Creative, compelling, and unique in its approach, Person of Interest will strengthen the faith of believers, while engaging those who are skeptical and distrusting of the New Testament.

  • Chosen By God (Revised)

    $15.99

    Chosen by God by Dr. R. C. Sproul is a contemporary classic on predestination, a doctrine that isn’t just for Calvinists. It is a doctrine for all biblical Christians. In this updated and expanded edition of Chosen by God, Sproul shows that the doctrine of predestination doesn’t create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but rather paints a portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans.
    We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty; we love him because he first loved us. There is mystery in God’s ways, but not contradiction.

  • Challenging Conversations : A Practical Guide To Discuss Controversial Topi

    $16.99

    When was the last time you had an honest, heartfelt, yet kind and productive conversation with someone about depression, mental illness, substance abuse, pornography, premarital sex, racism, divorce, abortion, LGBTQ issues, or church scandals? Our tendency is either to avoid talking about such volatile topics at all–even with other Christians–or to go on the attack, causing rifts that do nothing to encourage further discussion or growth.

    If you’re tired of avoiding tough conversations, if you want to be a light in a dark world but you’re not sure how, Challenging Conversations is the book you’ve been waiting for. With straightforward answers to some of the most challenging moral issues disrupting the church, this book will help you build your confidence using three simple steps to becoming a conversant Christian. Each chapter begins with a true story, clarifies misconceptions and misunderstandings about the subject, and equips you to build rapport, ask the right questions, find points of agreement, and take the next fruitful step in the relationship. Because even if we disagree on a moral issue, that shouldn’t make us mortal enemies.

  • Ascension Of Christ

    $12.79

    The Ascension is essential to the gospel

    The good news of Jesus includes his life, death, resurrection, and future return–but what about his ascension? Though often neglected or misunderstood, the ascension is integral to the gospel.

    In The Ascension of Christ, Patrick Schreiner argues that Jesus’ work would be incomplete without his ascent to God’s right hand. Not only a key moment in the gospel story, Jesus’ ascension was necessary for his present ministry in and through the church. Schreiner argues that Jesus’ residence in heaven marks a turning point in his three-fold offices of prophet, priest, and king. As prophet, Jesus builds the church and its witness. As priest, he intercedes before the Father. As king, he rules over all.

    A full appreciation of the ascension is essential for understanding the Bible, Christian doctrine, and Christ’s ongoing work in the world.

  • Christ The Cornerstone

    $21.99

    What does it mean to say Jesus is Lord?

    The late Anglican pastor John Stott–named as one of the 100 most influential people in 2005 by Time magazine-was committed to the notion that Jesus’ lordship has ramifications for all of life. Out of this conviction grew his contention that the whole mission of God includes both evangelism and social action. Christ the Cornerstone recovers several decades of his writings exploring the consequences of Jesus’ lordship from the pages of Christianity Today, including the regular “Cornerstone” column he wrote from 1977-1981. In them, he treats such diverse topics as Scripture, discipleship, the worldwide mission of the church, and social concerns such as the value of human life, care for animals, racial diversity, and economic inequality. Gain insight for today from the writings of a guiding light of evangelicalism.

  • All Things New

    $19.99

    New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge offers readers a breathtaking look into God’s promise for a new heaven and a new earth.

    This revolutionary book about our future is based on the simple idea that, according to the Bible, heaven is not our eternal home–the New Earth is. As Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew, the next chapter of our story begins with “the renewal of all things,” by which he means the earth we love in all its beauty, our own selves, and the things that make for a rich life: music, art, food, laughter and all that we hold dear. Everything shall be renewed “when the world is made new.”

    More than anything else, how you envision your future shapes your current experience. If you knew that God was going to restore your life and everything you love any day; if you believed a great and glorious goodness was coming to you–not in a vague heaven but right here on this earth–you would have a hope to see you through anything, an anchor for your soul, “an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God” (Hebrews 6:19).

    Most Christians (most people for that matter) fail to look forward to their future because their view of heaven is vague, religious, and frankly boring. Hope begins when we understand that for the believer nothing is lost. Heaven is not a life in the clouds; it is not endless harp-strumming or worship-singing. Rather, the life we long for, the paradise Adam and Eve knew, is precisely the life that is coming to us. And that life is coming soon.

  • Divine Conspiracy Continued

    $14.99

    In this sequel to his spiritual classic The Divine Conspiracy, the late Dallas Willard, along with theologian Gary Black Jr., fulfills his revolutionary vision of how the kingdom of God is made real on earth

    In The Divine Conspiracy, Dallas Willard critiqued the church’s obsessive focus on “sin management” and revolutionized how we understand Christian discipleship, revealing what it meant to “apprentice ourselves” to Jesus to truly fulfill his message that the “kingdom of God has come.”

    In The Divine Conspiracy Continued, the last book he was actively working on before his death, Willard along with theologian Gary Black Jr., lays out the next stage in God’s plan for a new generation of disciples, including pastors and lay leaders, who can transform the world from the inside out. God does not call Christians to protect themselves from the world, Willard reminds us; he calls them to embrace it, to lead and serve.

    Throughout his life, Willard was the teacher other leaders looked to for guidance and understanding. This remarkable volume continues his ground-breaking message, and is sure to become a cherished fount of wisdom and a new blueprint for how God’s revolution can continue into the twenty-first century.
