Featured Titles

Abraham and Sarah

A splendid exploration of faith against great odds and love that endures years of disappointment.
Abraham and Sarah is a masterful historical drama from the moment that Abraham strides into the pagan temple to rescue Sarah. The couple set out in search of the blessings God had promised: abundant fertile land and decedents more plentiful than the stars.

Facing Leviathan

There are two styles of leadership at war in the world.
On one side, the mechanical leader casts a vision of heroic action aided by pragmatism, reason, technology, and power.
On the other side, the organic leader strives to bring forth creativity, defying convention and relishing life in culture's margins.

Missing Jesus

We put our trust in Christ alone for the forgiveness of our sins, desire to please God with our life, and yet, we often find that something crucial is missing. Our day-to-day experience of faith lacks the vitality we know it should have. We feel like we're missing something and we probably are. We're probably missing Jesus.

Neighborhood Mapping

In addition to understanding the Word of God, it is necessary to understand the people we serve. Once we make sense of our neighborhoods and communities, we can begin to "diagnose" needs and apply the proper "dose" of the Gospel to meet those opportunities.

No More Perfect Kids

Love Your Kids for Who They Are.
Mom and dad, your kids are created in God's image, not your own. Jill Savage and Kathy Koch will guide you in truly appreciating your kids. They will teach you how to study and become an expert on your children, because you cannot fully embrace them until you truly know them.

OneCry

OneCry: A Call to Spiritual Awakening is a challenge, a plea for readers to shake off spiritual apathy and wake up to the hope of God moving with extraordinary power in our day. It paints a picture of both desperation and hope - without spiritual revival our country has no hope, but when it comes we will need no other hope.

Pulling Back the Shades

Christian women don't have to choose between being sexual and spiritual. They have legitimate longings that the Church has been afraid to talk about, and books like Fifty Shades of Grey exploit. Whether you are single or married, sexually dead or just looking to revive your sex life, Pulling Back the Shades will address your desire to be both sexual AND spiritual.

The Soul

In a culture in which science is believed to hold the answers to every question, spiritual realities like the soul are often ignored or ridiculed.  We are told that neuroscience holds the key to explaining every aspect of human behavior.  Yet Christian philosopher J. P.

United

On the Last Day every tongue and tribe will be represented in the glorious chorus praising God with one voice. Yet today our churches remain segregated. Can we reflect the beauty of the last day this day? United will inspire, challenge and en-courage readers to pursue the joys of of diversity through stories of the author's own journey and a theology of diversity lived out.

The Social Church

Did you know that you can see reviews of a church on Google Maps or Yelp? Have you considered what new people might find your church through a friend's social media? How often have you talked about "reaching people where they are" -and realized that much of the time, they are on the internet?

Solomon's Song

The sadness and the tenderness of life are felt so acutely in the presence of beauty, and love is revealed more in our sorrow than in our joy. -Solomon, from Solomon's Song

Threads of Change

The past threatens to destroy the good days ahead.
 
Liz has overcome the emptiness of her husband's death, the hardships of the trip west and even the robbery and murder of her beloved grandfather.  Standing at the altar, she feels hope for the first time in many years.

When Others Shuddered

When Others Shuddered: Eight Women Who Refused to Give Up is the story of eight women called to serve God and who, in doing so, changed the world. They lived at the turn-of-the-century, rubbing shoulders with the well-known men of their time like John Rockefeller, Marshall Field, and Dwight Lyman Moody.

Marriage Matters

"Most people today view marriage as a means of looking for love, happiness, and fulfillment. Make no mistake about it, those things are important. Those things are critical. They are just not the most critical."
-Tony Evans

Loving God with Your Mind

Over the past twenty-five years, no one has done more than J. P. Moreland to equip Christians to love God with their minds.  In his work as a Christian philosopher, scholar, and apologist, he has influenced thousands of students, written groundbreaking books, and taught multitudes of Christians to defend their faith. 

Craving Grace

I was stuck. I believed the gospel changed people, but it wasn't changing me and I was miserable. My head was filled with brilliant knowledge about God, but my heart was not convinced He even knew my name. How could I make sense out of the way I was living like a spiritual orphan and His child almost simultaneously?  Are you stuck? Tired of going through the motions? Craving something but don't know what? Sometimes I feel the same way.

The Art of Storytelling

Many of us would love to hold the attention of a crowd, a classroom, or just a group of our friends by telling them a great story. We have felt the pressure of a public presentation or the disappointment of a story that is ignored and we are ready for more.

Stripped

When Christians answer God's call they are often unprepared for what that call entails. God's call typically comes with great joy and anticipation but is followed by confusion and disillusionment as trials and difficulties arise. Yet God never promised an easy road of personal comfort and ease. What God promises is a life of total transformation and a stripping of the former self in pursuit of godliness.

Psalms, The

This collection of essays on the Psalms by distinguished Old Testament scholars is a snapshot of the most current scholarly work on the Psalter. The book is divided into five sections that 1) give an overview of Psalms studies in the 21st century; 2) and 3) discuss psalms of praise and lament; 4) look at the big picture of the Psalter as a book; and 5) present sermons on the Psalms that are models of evangelical engagement with the text.

Adversary, The

Spiritual warfare is real, and we are all involved whether we like it or not. The Bible plainly tells us that Satan schemes against humanity and that he wants to devour us. Daily we struggle against Satan's strategies and  desire to take over God's kingdom. This battle will not go away, and ignoring it could be disastrous.

Shades of Mercy

It's 1954 and the world-even the far Northwoods of Maine-is about to change. But that change can't happen soon enough for fourteen-year-old Mercy Millar. Long tired of being the "son" her father never had, Mercy's ready for the world to embrace her as the young woman she is-as well as embrace the forbidden love she feels.
