  • Worship In An Age Of Anxiety

    $32.00

    The history of the theology of worship is riddled with examples of clergy and worship leaders who have sought to manipulate their parishioners’ anxiety in order to spur repentance and turn people toward God. Even if such ends may be desirable-at what cost?

    In Worship in an Age of Anxiety, Jordan challenges this utilitarian approach, offering a critical assessment of contemporary as well as historical evangelical figures such as D. L. Moody and Billy Graham who have deployed anxiety as a tool for conversion.

    Proposing a completely different model, Jordan takes up various elements of worship, including:

    *liturgy
    *space
    *music
    *preaching
    *the sacraments

    In doing so, he develops a practical theology of worship that also turns people toward God but within a healing framework.

    While worship alone cannot heal anxiety, it can be a time and place where, rather than being manipulated, anxiety can be acknowledged, accepted, and offered to God.

  • Discipleship As Holy Collaboration

    $18.00

    In this practical guide, Yolanda Solomon offers biblical exposition and personal narratives to help us become disciples who are invited by Jesus to collaborate with God in a sacred group project. With a discussion guide and multiple step-by-step praxis activities, this book will encourage, equip, and reignite your passion to disciple others.

    Many Christians don’t disciple others because they think it’s the church leaders’ responsibility. But Jesus commanded all his disciples to go and make disciples. If we’re honest, many of us hesitate to disciple others because we don’t feel qualified, fear we’ll do more harm than good, and think we don’t have time for it. Yolanda Solomon provides a practical guide to help us become disciples who are empowered by Jesus to make disciples.

    Through biblical exposition and personal narrative, Solomon describes the beauty of discipleship in a way that will (re)ignite your passion to disciple others. Discipleship as Holy Collaboration describes the traits of a disciple and examines how disciples are made as people encounter a love that empowers and compels them to continue Jesus’ mission. She walks us through the life of Jesus, pointing out numerous examples of embodied discipleship that we can implement in our own context. Solomon describes Jesus’ call to make disciples as an invitation to collaborate with God in a sacred group project. The book also includes a discussion guide and multiple step-by-step praxis activities to encourage and equip you to answer the call.

  • Know The Theologians

    $22.99

    Know the Theologians is an introduction to the most important thinkers throughout church history and a demonstration of their ongoing relevance for believers today.

    The Bible describes the church as a kind of family. Those who believe in Christ are sisters and brothers in the faith, whether they live at the same time or are separated by centuries. For that reason, believers today need to know our family members who have come before and shaped our beliefs and practices now. In Know the Theologians, professors and authors Jennifer Powell McNutt and David W. McNutt introduce the most significant thinkers in the church’s history.

    McNutt and McNutt survey over a dozen primary figures, including Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant theologians, who represent the breadth and depth of the church’s theology. The book explores how they fit into their own time period and also draws attention to the theological voices of women throughout the church’s history. Every chapter includes short sidebars on figures contemporary to the main theologians, bringing in additional important voices.

    This book has everything you need for a full personal or group study experience.

    As part of the KNOW series, Know the Theologians is designed for either personal study or classroom use, and it will also be an accessible resource for small groups and adult education in churches. Chapters end with reflection questions and recommended reading for further study.

  • Drink Called Joy

    $11.99

    Using the language and stories of former drug addicts and alcoholics transformed by Jesus Christ, Don Wilkerson makes a contrast between the drinking “high” of drugs and the experience with the Most High God.

    Don Writes, “Using Apostle Paul’s admonition to not be drunk with wine wherein is “excess” but be “filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18) I make a similar contrast between joy in the Lord and the false euphoria of the life of the addict on drugs. There is also possible scientific evidence that if the brain waves of someone on cocaine were compared with someone joyful in the Lord the latter would show a “peace that passes all understanding.”

    Wilkerson shares 12 chapters based on the real-life experiences of addicts finding supernatural answers to their addiction; these stories are sometimes humorous but nevertheless real. It is hopeful you will finding the reading of this book a joyful experience. There is an important message in this book for those needing freedom from addiction as well an encouragement for those in recovery. Read this then share with some else and spread joy where needed.

  • Attentive Church Leadership

    $25.00

    The world has changed, and we minister in places we have never been in before. As the world screams for our focus, it’s essential to become attentive to God, our congregation, and our community. Kevin Ford and Jim Singleton call for attentive churches with attentive leaders to discern cultural and organizational change and pivot accordingly.

    The world has changed. The changes around us present daunting challenges to the church, and we minister in places we have never been in before. But there are no one-size-fits-all solutions because every church needs to attend to its specific situation and calling. We need to listen for not only what to do but also what not to do. In a world screaming in a thousand directions for our focus, it’s essential for us to become attentive to God, our congregation, and our community.

    Kevin Ford and Jim Singleton call for attentive churches with attentive leaders who can discern cultural and organizational change and pivot accordingly. Healthy transformation starts with a posture of attention. We need to see what God is already doing in our midst: in our own soul, in our people, and in the communities and culture around us. Chapters explore key questions that attentive leaders ask and offer case studies of attentive churches that have navigated the issues and transitions facing them. As we practice habits of attention, God leads us through the highs and lows of change into the exciting adventure of being on mission with him.

  • Finding Peace Through Humility Study Guide With DVD (Student/Study Guide)

    $50.99

    “In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit” (Judges 17:6).

    In truth, the people had a King–the Lord–but they had rejected his authority over their lives. This led to them getting stuck in a cycle of faithlessness, judgment, remorse, deliverance and then faithlessness again. The people lacked humility. If only they had recognized God as their King, they could have broken out of the cycle.

    In Finding Peace Through Humility, based on The Hidden Peace, Joel Muddamalle reveals how humility can likewise help us break out of our cycles of sin and experience the peace that God wants us to have.

  • Gospel Of John Bible Study Book With Video Access (Student/Study Guide)

    $30.75

    Life. It seems to move at a break-neck pace. Days are filled with noise, screens, and appointments. Sometimes worry and fear are constant companions.

  • Beyond The Clinical Hour

    $28.00

    The global mental health crisis is growing faster than our existing mental health care system can address. To meet the scope of human need, we need new models of care. The good news is that there is an institution uniquely positioned with the resources and the heart to help: the church.

    Psychologists James Sells and Amy Trout and journalist Heather Sells know firsthand the urgency of the situation-but they have also witnessed creative partnerships between churches and mental health professionals springing up across the United States. In this book, they call clinicians, students, and educators to collaborate with churches and lay leaders to envision and then create innovative solutions in their own communities.

    Challenging the dominance of the traditional “clinical hour” as a one-size-has-to-fit-all model, Sells, Trout, and Sells give concrete guidance on how mental health professionals can work with churches to provide consultation, train lay leaders, and develop and evaluate programs to expand a continuum of care. They also explore the skills, theological foundations, and research-based knowledge that both Christian counselors and church leaders need to integrate their spheres of expertise.

    Both a call to action and an encouraging roadmap, this book charts the way forward for combining the science of the mental health discipline with the service of Christian ministry.

    Christian Association for Psychological Studies (CAPS) Books explore how Christianity relates to mental health and behavioral sciences including psychology, counseling, social work, and marriage and family therapy in order to equip Christian clinicians to support the well-being of their clients.

    Kathie Lee Gifford and Rabbi Jason Sobel will take you and your group beyond the typical “Sunday school” teaching to examine the true texts of the Bible.

    In this six-session video Bible study (video streaming code included), Kathie Lee invites you to join her as she visits sites in Israel that have impacted her faith and understanding of Scripture. As she shares her story, coauthor Rabbi Jason–a messianic Jewish rabbi–provides fascinating background details that make the story of the New Testament come alive.

    As Kathie Lee and Rabbi Jason reveal in this study, Jesus (the Rock) came into this world and walked the lands of Israel (the Road) to show us the way to God. And when we are introduced to the mysteries of God’s Word (the Rabbi) and understand it in the context in which it was written, radical transformation begins to renew our hearts and minds.

    1. Bethlehem: Where It All Began (13:30)
    2. Nazareth: The Early Years (13:30)
    3. Capernaum: Ministry Headquarters (14:00)

  • Smallbatch Disciplemaking : A Rhythm For Training The Few To Reach The Many

    $17.99

    Recover Jesus’ strategy of training the few to reach the many.

    What if rather than funneling people through church programs, you invested in their growth? Would this kind of intentional investment help you discover a new kind of Christian purpose and spiritual legacy? And, what if you already have what it takes to develop your spiritual growth as a disciple while apprenticing others?

    As Christians, we should all participate in spiritual leadership by seeking to make spiritual investment in the lives closest to us. It’s time for us to move away from institutionalized, Sunday morning faith and toward a more relationally driven, culturally friendly, and doable approach to disciple-making. What you will discover is how discipleship is not about learning more but learning to give away what you already have in Christ.

    Small-Batch Disciplemaking by David Sunde is a compelling field guide for Christians looking to make a difference in the world by sharing their faith. With practical and empowering strategies for navigating the intimidating Biblical mandate of making disciples, this book equips and empowers readers to:

    *Grow in faith in order to give faith away
    *Learn intentional spiritual practices like hospitality, compassion, and gratitude
    *Confidently go out and make a difference in the world

    Get ready for a deeply pragmatic, culturally informed disciple-making faith.

  • Untangle Your Emotions Curriculum Kit

    $77.99

    WHAT DOES THE BIBLE TELL US ABOUT OUR EMOTIONS?

    Do we have control over feeling sad? Feeling angry? Feeling happy?

    What do we do when we can’t interrupt a feeling?

    Does the Bible really tell us that our emotions are untrustworthy?

    After years of hiding and denying her own painful emotions, bestselling author and Bible teacher Jennie Allen decided to ask these vulnerable questions. In doing so, she discovered emotions are not our enemy. Emotions are designed by God as gifts to connect us to Himself and to the people we love.

    Join Jennie on a journey to a healthier relationship with emotions and a deeper connection with God through a biblical study of how God made us to feel.

    This kit is your tool for leading the Untangle Your Emotions study and to encourage you along the way. It includes all the elements you will need to lead this study effectively.

    STUDY. This study guide uses projects, stories, and Bible study to engage the mind and heart. There are six weeks of Bible study for your group, and a leader’s guide to prepare you to lead this study.

    SEE. Six short but deep teaching videos provide a starting place for meeting God and for transparent group conversations. Each video is approximately 17 minutes long.

  • Doing Justice Together

    $17.99

    Transform your church with grace. Doing Justice Together introduces a process using Scripture as a souce of inspiration and instruction for pastors and church people to move through together, to re-envision and reorient themselves away from old, harmful habits. Beck and Hand show pastors how they can, over time, lead the congregation to become a place where racial harmony, justice, and liberation are intrinsic to the structure and life of the church. The authors lay out four pathways for discerning and correcting the unjust patterns that often sneak into church life unnoticed. They also share other leaders’ stories from a variety of settings where this process has led to healing, revival, and hope. Following the pathways, pastors and congregants will be equipped to thoughtfully transform their church. They’ll make changes with grace and care, honoring and including longtime members. And they’ll begin new ministries–perhaps reaching people they could never have imagined reaching before–becoming a fresh expression of church in their community.

  • Church For Everyone

    $18.00

    Diversity is a high value for younger generations-but too often, they’re not finding it in the church.

    Emerging generations in the West are more diverse than ever-ethnically, socioeconomically, educationally, and politically. And as church attendance among younger generations declines rapidly, research shows that one of their primary sticking points is the lack of diversity in most churches.

    In Church for Everyone, pastors Dan Kreiss and Efrem Smith address this phenomenon head-on. In this research-based, theologically informed, and practical book, they explore the younger generations’ expectations and disappointments with church and hold out a vision for true diversity taken from the pages of Scripture. As experienced church leaders themselves, Kreiss and Smith share a wealth of practical experience and stories from the trenches of multiethnic ministry.

    The good news is that God has already called the church to diversity. As we seek to live out this calling in our own local contexts, we can become the demonstration of God’s love for all humanity that he has designed the church to be-and that the younger generation is so desperately looking for.

  • Improvising Church : Scripture As The Source Of Harmony, Rhythm, And Soul

    $28.00

    Plenty of books diagnose our post-Christian malaise. Here’s a dynamic solution.

    The post-Christian cultural turn is creating the conditions for a crisis of confidence in the church and in pastoral ministry. While such changes can be disruptive and disconcerting, our new cultural reality makes the present moment a uniquely exciting time to reimagine churches that bear witness to Christ. How do we move beyond cookie-cutter approaches (which may have worked in the past) to building the creative, compassionate, and incarnational churches we long for?

    Biblical scholar and accomplished jazz pianist Mark Glanville plays with a metaphor of improvisation to chart twelve themes as the key “notes” on which Christian communities play as they bear witness to God in the world today. Building on these two dynamic traditions-jazz music and Christian community-Improvising Church unfolds a biblical, practical, and inventive vision for churches seeking to receive and extend the healing of Christ.

  • New Anabaptists : Practices For Emerging Communities

    $18.99

    What does it look like to be an Anabaptist community in the modern world? And why does it matter?

    A new incarnation of Anabaptism is emerging, but not where we might expect. In the United Kingdom–a post-Christendom context with little historical Anabaptist presence–Christian communities are embodying fresh expressions of Anabaptist faith and practice. In this companion to The Naked Anabaptist, author Stuart Murray identifies twelve common practices of such churches and communities that are shaped by an Anabaptist vision.

    Murray explores how these practices–which include encouraging economic radicalism in the face of rampant consumerism, truth-telling in a “post-truth” society, and accountability in an individualistic culture that knows little about the Christian story–might shape emerging Christian communities and inspire those seeking fresh expressions as cultural changes accelerate. The book concludes with three on-the-ground reports from ministry leaders pursuing this Anabaptist vision in their own post-Christendom contexts.

  • Reckoning With Power

    $39.99

    History is clear: Whenever the church has aligned itself with worldly, coercive power, it ends up on the wrong side of important justice issues.

    But when the church cooperates with God’s power through his presence among the least powerful, its witness for Jesus transforms the world into a better place.

    In Reckoning with Power, David Fitch unpacks the difference between worldly power, or power over others, and God’s power, which engages not in coercion but in love, reconciliation, grace, forgiveness, and healing.

    In a world where we can see the abuses of power everywhere–in our homes, schools, governments, and churches–Fitch teaches readers how to discern power and avoid its abuses and traumas. By learning from the church’s historical pitfalls, Fitch empowers Christians to relinquish worldly power and make space for God to disrupt and transform our culture for his kingdom.

  • Wounded Pastors : Navigating Burnout, Finding Healing, And Discerning The F

    $25.00

    Seasoned pastor Carol Howard Merritt and psychotherapist and former pastor James Fenimore join their expertise to offer validation, support, and guidance for pastors who have been hurt by the church. With wisdom that can come only from experience, they describe and define aspects of struggle and pain readers may have difficulty articulating or claiming for themselves, and they offer compassionate, informed guidance on how to find healing.

    You’re not alone in your ministry. And you don’t have to suffer in silence. Ministry is a stressful vocation, with unspoken expectations, projected anxieties, and conflicting demands. After the pandemic caused a sudden shift to online worship and factions fighting over when and how to return to in-person worship, pastors have been leaving congregational ministry at even higher rates than usual. The emotional fallout of burnout and abuse at the hands of parishioners is something pastors carry for years, whether they stay or leave the congregation.

With wisdom that can come only from experience, they describe and define aspects of struggle and pain readers may have difficulty articulating or claiming for themselves, and they offer compassionate, informed guidance on how to find healing. A systems approach to conflict sheds light on the dynamics of church conflict and how clergy can tend their own well-being amid leadership challenges. The final chapter helps readers consider their overall vocational path based on what they’ve experienced and decide whether they can remain in congregational ministry or need to pursue a different line of work.

    Discover the gift found in a life that doesn’t seek to be seen.

    In a world where excellence is equated to exposure, and legacy is equated to social media likes, what does it mean to embrace a hidden life?

    What does it look like to exchange:

    *Performance culture for unconditional love?
    *Visibility for inherent value?
    *Earthly accolades for heavenly reward?
    *Enslavement to people-pleasing for freedom in Christ?
    *Hiding from life for being hidden in God?

    In Scripture, Jesus presents us an astoundingly countercultural way of existing–one without the pressure to perform or make a platform. The life Jesus offers us is focused on him. Simply and surely. Living a concealed life, whether known by many or by none, is about resetting our motivations and focus.

    In this study, we will learn from and relate our own stories to examples of multiple concealed characters in the Bible including the Sons of Korah, Cleopas, Huldah, the Daughters of Shallum, Pilate’s Wife, and Gideon. Join Allison Allen as she explores the power, purpose, and delight of hiddenness in Christ.

    This study guide includes:

Whether you’re a longtime Christian or someone brand new to faith, this book will lead you to a trust in God that is unafraid of hard questions.

    $23.99

    This textbook updates the conversation about models of psychology and faith integration, helping students understand the range of options for Christian engagement. Drawing from themes developed in Paul Moes’s well-received Exploring Psychology and Christian Faith (coauthored with Donald J. Tellinghuisen), Integrating Psychology and Faith develops a set of worldview dimensions that serve to organize a variety of psychology-faith integration models.

    Paul Moes and Blake Riek set forth principles and themes and establish historical context to help students explore where different views fit on a continuum of approaches to integration and understand the perspectives of other Christians in the field of psychology. In this way, students come to better understand the organizing principles for various views about psychology that they encounter. The book also shows how theological traditions and positions shape views on natural science, social science, and psychology.

  • Disabling Leadership : A Practical Theology For The Broken Body Of Christ

    $24.00

    People with disabilities are often excluded from full participation in church communities. Accessibility is a key component of the biblical ministry of reconciliation-but it’s not enough. To truly work toward reconciliation, churches must both consider the theological implications of disability and also become places where people with disabilities lead.

    Disabling Leadership presents a practical theology of disability for thoughtful church leaders and congregants. Written by practitioners and a scholar-pastor who are engaged in ministry together, this book encompasses cutting-edge theological ethics as well as stories of how such commitments are embodied in a real church community. The authors equip readers to explore key themes such as:

    *what it means to be human
    *how to understand suffering and healing
    *how churches can be welcoming and accessible communities
    *how to face common challenges and issues in resisting ableism

    Disabling Leadership moves beyond paternalistic views of disability that seek to extract “inspiration” from another’s story without engaging in the difficult work of just and dignifying relationships. When we foster genuinely inclusive leadership teams, the authors contend, our churches will be less likely to treat anyone as a “project” and will better reflect God’s love as the body of Christ.
