    $16.99

    Reflections on Keeping Your Faith in College

    Preparing for college is exciting for young adults-but are they truly prepared for the intellectual challenges they will face in and out of the classroom? College is not just a time filled with new and formative experiences; it can also be an intense season of testing for a young Christian’s faith.

    Writing in the form of a letter to his college-age daughter, Michael Kruger reflects on some of the biggest stumbling blocks Christian students often encounter at secular universities. Answering questions such as How can Christianity be the only right religion?; How can we know the Bible is really from God?; and Wouldn’t a loving God save everyone?, Kruger offers biblical, theological, and logical support for the Christian faith and provides students with the tools to navigate these challenging topics. College students wrestling with these issues will be encouraged to find security in God’s unfailing word even in the face of difficult questions.

  • We Will Not Be Silenced

    $17.99

    When You Want to Speak Up but Aren’t Sure What to Say

    You’ve witnessed-and experienced-how Christians are silenced or intimidated because of their beliefs. To merely uphold biblical perspectives is rejected as bigotry and even hatred. Certain segments of today’s culture are quick to shame and pressure everyone to conform to their expectations.

    If you find yourself becoming discouraged by the growing tide of hostility, We Will Not Be Silenced will lift your heart by revealing you are not alone in this battle, while also giving you guidance on how to live your faith with courage. You will learn how to…
    *identify the harmful views being normalized in America and respond to them with truth and gentleness
    *thrive in the face of persecution and display Christlike love through your words and actions
    *show genuine compassion to those who live secular lifestyles without affirming their life choices

    We Will Not Be Silenced will equip you to move beyond fear and joyfully accept the challenge of representing Christ to a watching world that needs Him more than ever before.

  • Chasing Love : Sex, Love, And Relationships In A Confused Culture

    $17.99

    The music we listen to, the movies we watch-they’re all telling us to keep chasing love, and that we’ll finally be happy when we find it.

    But is love really all we need?

    The love that the world tells us to pursue is all about self, about following your heart’s desires. But what is the Christian worldview on love? When we follow Jesus, we realize that he invites us to reorient the focus of our lives, so instead of chasing love primarily for our own happiness, we are first and foremost to give love-to God and to others.

    In Chasing Love, Sean McDowell will invite readers into Jesus’ radical, upside-down approach to love, and in doing so, he’ll answer some of the toughest questions we’re asking about love today:

    *How does Jesus speak to singleness?
    *What does the gospel say about LGBTQ issues?
    *Can sexual sin truly be forgiven?
    *What if I’m not happy in my marriage?

  • Live Free Or Die

    $30.00

    America’s top-rated cable news host and #1 New York Times bestselling author offers his first book in ten years: a look at America’s fight against those who would reverse our tradition of freedom-a fight we can’t afford to lose in 2020.

    America is great for a reason. Built on principles of freedom, rugged individualism, and self-sufficiency, no country has ever accumulated more power and wealth, abused it less, or used that power more to advance the human condition.

    And yet, as America blossomed, leftwing radicalism and resentment festered beneath the surface, threatening to undermine democracy first in the sixties and now-more insidiously than ever-in the form of social justice warriors, the deep state, and compromised institutions like academia and the mainstream media.

    Our fate if we succumb to a Democratic victory in 2020? A big step toward full-blown socialism along with the economic dysfunction and social strife that are its hallmarks. With radical Democrats demanding the Green New Deal, socialized medicine, abortion on demand, open borders, abolishing the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, and an end to free speech, our great nation will be fundamentally transformed beyond recognition.

    Ronald Reagan once said, Freedom is but one generation away from extinction, and his words have never rung truer. In Live Free or Die, Sean demonstrates why now is an All Hands on Deck moment to save the Republic. His solution is simple: if all you can do is vote, then vote. But if you can inform people of the truth, that’s even better. And the truth is that the future of American freedom rests on Donald Trump’s reelection.

  • Christians In The Age Of Outrage

    $16.99

    Are you tired of reading another news story about Christians acting their worst?

    Today there are too many examples of those claiming to follow Christ being caustic, divisive, and irrational, contributing to dismissals of the Christian faith as hypocritical, self-interested, and politically co-opted. What has happened in our society? It seems one short outrageous video or pithy post can trigger an avalanche of comments on social media.

    Welcome to the new age of outrage.

    In this groundbreaking look at our current cultural moment, social commentator and popular speaker Ed Stetzer describes the contours of the new age of outrage-and a new way forward for Christians. It is clear that our knee-jerk reactions-withdrawing, becoming defensive, or going on the offensive-are feeding the headlines and not serving the cause of Christ well.

    In Christians in the Age of Outrage, you will discover a comprehensive road map to avoid the attractive dead ends our society presents to Christians. You won’t want to miss Ed’s insightful analysis of our chaotic age, his commonsensical understanding of the cultural currents, and his compelling challenge to Christians to live in a refreshingly different way.

  • Movies Are Prayers

    $17.00

    Movies are our way of telling God what we think about this world and our place in it. . . . Movies can be many things: escapist experiences, historical artifacts, business ventures, and artistic expressions, to name a few. I’d like to suggest that they can also be prayers. Movies do more than tell a good story. They are expressions of raw emotion, naked vulnerability, and unbridled rage. They often function in the same way as prayers, communicating our deepest longings and joys, to a God who hears each and every one. In this captivating book, Filmspotting cohost Josh Larsen brings a critic’s unique perspective to how movies function as expressions to God of lament, praise, joy, confession, and more. His clear expertise and passion for the art of film along with his thoughtful reflections on the nature of prayer will bring you a better understanding of both. God’s omnipresence means that you can find him whether you’re sitting on your sofa at home or in the seats at the theater. You can talk to him wherever movies are shown. And when words fail, the perfect film might be just what you need to jumpstart your conversations with the Almighty.

  • Myth Of Equality

    $18.00

    Is privilege real or imagined? It’s clear that issues of race and equality have come to the forefront in our nation’s consciousness. Every week yet another incident involving racial tension splashes across headlines and dominates our news feeds. But it’s not easy to unpack the origins of these tensions, and perhaps we wonder whether any of these issues really has anything to do with us. Ken Wytsma, founder of The Justice Conference, understands these questions. He has gone through his own journey of understanding the underpinnings of inequality and privilege. In this timely, insightful book Wytsma unpacks what we need to know to be grounded in conversations about today’s race-related issues. And he helps us come to a deeper understanding both of the origins of these issues and of the reconciling role we are called to play as ministers of the gospel. Inequality and privilege are real. The Myth of Equality opens our eyes to realities we may have never realized were present in our society and world. And we will be changed for the better as a result.

    Additional Info
    So often, a counselor hears and sees only one side of a story: that of the substance abuser. It would be helpful, however, to know how the abuser’s family is coping. Do they see the progress the abuser claims to be making? Is everything really going as well as claimed? Very often the abuser has a rather myopic view of his problem: everything is okay at home, when, in fact, the family is at its wits’ end, frustrated, angry, and ready to throw in the towel. They have tried everything they can think of to fix their loved one and to stop him from using. They don’t have much faith that this current round of counseling is going to get very far. They have been burned too many times already.

    Addiction: A Family Affair is designed to encourage loved ones to tell their side of the story and, in return, to receive solid Biblical counsel for how to cope and how to respond to the abuser. Even if the abuser will not seek counseling, this material will help loved ones respond Biblically to the abuser and know what options they have.
