  • Sacredness Of Secular Work

    $25.00

    From a leading voice in the faith and work movement and author of Redeeming Your Time comes the revolutionary message that God sees our daily work–in whatever form it takes–with far more value than we ever imagined.

    Does your work matter for eternity?
    Sadly, most believers don’t think so. Sure, the 1 percent of the time they spend sharing the gospel with their co-workers matters. But most Christians view the other 99 percent of their time as meaning very little in the grand scheme of things.

    But that’s not how God sees it.

    Jordan Raynor, a leading voice in the faith and work movement and bestselling author, offers a revolutionary message about how our daily jobs–from baristas and entrepreneurs to stay-at-home parent and coaches–have intrinsic and eternal value. In The Sacredness of Secular Work, he reveals unexpected ways our work truly matters. In these pages you’ll discover:

    – How a low regard of our work limits our understanding of God and His Kingdom
    – Inspiring ways your work can reveal God’s kingdom on earth here and now
    – Surprising strategies for ensuring your vocation has an eternal legacy
    – Vital insights on what God’s view of work tells us about heaven

    Combining research, Scripture, and storytelling, Jordan Raynor proves that work, in its diverse forms, is one of the primary activities that brings God delight. This biblical perspective will set you free to pursue your passions and skills and–perhaps for the first time–experience the Creator’s delight in the work of your hands.

  • Working From The Inside Out

    $18.00

    Many today are experiencing social isolation, deep anxieties about the future, and various difficulties in the workplace. For too many of us, work seems tedious, painful, or meaningless. And we don’t know what to do about it.

    Working from the Inside Out pulls back the veil on the deep emotional and vocational challenges faced by the majority of workers and shows how work can become a way to love God, serve our neighbors, and demonstrate the gospel to the world. Bringing together emotional, relational, vocational, intellectual, and civic health through the seamless thread of vocation, Jeff Haanen offers a way out of the disintegration of our culture and toward a reintegrated life lived in response to God’s voice.

    The inner work of transformation leads to external transformation of our relationships and our work, and that good work influences our cities and the culture around us. Living from the inside out can change our work and heal our world.

  • Called To Care Third Edition

    $32.00

    As nursing and healthcare continue to change, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. Offering a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call, this thoroughly revised third edition of a classic text includes practical features for educators, students, and practitioners.

    Nursing is a vocation: a calling from God to care for others. The role of the nurse originally grew out of a holistic Christian understanding of humans as created in the image of God. Yet as nursing and healthcare continue to change, the effects have proven disorienting to many. Now more than ever, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. For over twenty years, Called to Care has served as a unique and essential resource for nurses. In this third edition Judith Allen Shelly and Arlene B. Miller, now joined by coauthor Kimberly H. Fenstermacher, present a definition for nursing based on a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call: Nursing is a ministry of compassionate and restorative care for the whole person, in response to God’s grace, which aims to promote and foster optimum health (shalom) and bring comfort in suffering and death for anyone in need. Focusing on the features of the nursing metaparadigm-person, health, environment, and nursing-they provide a framework for understanding how the Christian faith relates to the many aspects of a nurse’s work, from theory to everyday practice. This new edition of Called to Care is thoroughly revised for today’s nurses, including updated examples and new content on topics such as cultural competency, palliative care, and the current state of healthcare and nursing education. Each chapter features learning objectives, discussion questions, case studies, and theological reflections from Scripture to help readers engage and apply the content. For educators, students, and practitioners throughout the field of nursing, this classic text continues to provide clarity and wisdom for living out their calling.

  • Proximity Principle : The Proven Strategy That Will Lead To A Career You Lo

    $19.99

    Right now, 70% of Americans aren’t passionate about their work and are desperately longing for meaning and purpose. They’re sick of “average” and know there’s something better out there, but they just don’t know how to reach it.

    One basic principle–The Proximity Principle–can change everything you thought you knew about pursuing a career you love.

    In his latest book, The Proximity Principle, national radio host and career expert Ken Coleman provides a simple plan of how positioning yourself near the right people and places can help you land the job you love.

You’ll discover the five people you should look for and the four best places to grow, learn, practice, and perform so you can step into the role you were created to fill.

    After reading The Proximity Principle, you’ll know how to connect with the right people and put yourself in the right places, so opportunities will come–and you’ll be prepared to take them.

  • Real Artists Dont Starve

    $16.99

    Bestselling author and creativity expert Jeff Goins dismantles the myth that being creative is a hindrance to success by revealing how an artistic temperament is in fact a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Now in trade paper.

    For centuries, the myth of the starving artist has dominated our culture, seeping into the minds of creative people and stifling their pursuits. But the truth is that the world’s most successful artists did not starve. In fact, they capitalized on the power of their creative strength. In Real Artists Don’t Starve, Jeff Goins debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for thriving, including:

    steal from your influences (don’t wait for inspiration),
    collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve),
    take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones),
    make money in order to make more art (it’s not selling out), and
    apprentice under a master (a “lone genius” can never reach full potential).
    Through inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present, Goins shows that living by these rules is not only doable but it’s also a fulfilling way to thrive.

    From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Goins’s revolutionary rules celebrate the process of becoming an artist, a person who utilizes the imagination in fundamental ways. He reminds creatives that business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity.

    Expanding upon the groundbreaking work in his previous bestseller The Art of Work, Goins explores the tension every creative person and organization faces in an effort to blend the inspired life with a practical path to success. Being creative isn’t a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.

    Additional Info
    Is there more to clinical supervision than our current theories and methods can provide? Whether we intend them to be or not, our mentoring practices are personally formative for supervisees and supervisors alike. Developing Clinicians of Character grounds our thinking in the historic and contemporary wisdom of virtue ethics and grows out of a love for the practice of clinical supervision. It aims to identify and strengthen supervision’s important role for character formation in the classroom, in continuing education for practitioners, and in clinical settings.

    After an overview of the role of character formation in clinical supervision, Developing Clinicians of Character examines each classical Christian virtue in turn, its corresponding professional ethical aspiration, and how we can use the practices of clinical supervision and spiritual formation together to foster character formation for Christian maturity and Christlikeness.

    Dr. Terri S. Watson welcomes and equips you to excel in “the helping profession within a helping profession” as you provide clinical supervision for other mental health workers in counseling, psychology, and marriage and family therapy. This book will shape your own character through spiritual disciplines in the classical virtues-and outward in expanding circles of encouragement, formation, and healing.

  • Power Of Character In Leadership

    $16.99

    How to Protect Your Leadership Influence and Power

    You’ve worked hard to achieve your dreams and goals. Many others have done the same-only to lose it all in the end. Every day, we read about successful people in various walks of life who have lost their power and influence. They’ve been fired, forced to resign, or shamed out of public life. They no longer have a market for their gifts, and they may even face criminal proceedings. These leaders have lost the trust of their companies, constituents, nations, followers, and families. Many were surprised to discover that their talents alone were not enough to prevent their downfall.

    Why did they fail in the end? Because they lacked the one quality that would have protected their leadership and given them enduring influence. Ironically, this quality is seldom taught to leaders today, either formally or informally. It is the quality of moral force, or character.

    Every human being is a leader over some domain as he or she exercises gifts and influence. That domain might be the halls of government, the boardroom, the classroom, the community, or the home. In The Power of Character in Leadership: How Values, Morals, Ethics, and Principles Affect Leaders, you will discover what character is, what it means to develop moral force, and how to preserve your leadership influence so that it is both effective and enduring.

  • Calling In Todays World

    $28.99

    Comparative religious insights into the meaning of vocation

    The concept of “vocation” or “calling” is a distinctively Christian concern, grounded in the long-held belief that we find our meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in God. But what about religions other than Christianity? What does it mean for someone from another faith tradition to understand calling or vocation?

    In this book contributors with expertise in Catholic and Protestant Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism, and secular humanism explore the idea of calling in these various faith traditions. The contributors each search their respective tradition’s sacred texts, key figures, practices, and concepts for wisdom on the meaning of vocation. By seeking comparative insights from diverse faith traditions, say Kathleen Cahalan and Douglas Schuurman, we can all increase and improve our efforts to build a better, more humane world.

  • Pastor : The Theology And Practice Of Ordained Ministry (Revised)

    $34.99

    Ordained ministry, says Willimon, is a gift of God to the church–but that doesn’t mean that it is easy. Always a difficult vocation, changes in society and the church in recent years have made the ordained life all the more complex and challenging. Is the pastor primarily a preacher, a professional caregiver, an administrator? Given the call of all Christians to be ministers to the world, what is the distinctive ministry of the ordained? When does one’s ministry take on the character of prophet, and when does it become that of priest? What are the special ethical obligations and disciplines of the ordained? In this book, Willimon explores these and other central questions about the vocation of ordained ministry. He begins with a discussion of who pastors are, asking about the theological underpinnings of ordained ministry, and then moves on to what pastors do, looking at the distinctive roles the pastor must fulfill. The book also draws on great teachers of the Christian tradition to demonstrate that, while much about Christian ministry has changed, its core concerns–preaching the word, the care of souls, the sacramental life of congregations–remains the same. Ordained ministry is a vocation to which we are called, not a profession that we choose. To answer that call is to open oneself to heartache and sometimes hardship; yet, given the one who calls, it is to make oneself available to deep and profound joy as well.

    “Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know thee.” -Augustine

    Much is said in Christian circles about knowing God. But Christians throughout the ages have agreed that there cannot be deep knowledge of God without deep knowledge of the self. Discerning your true self is inextricably related to discerning God’s purposes for you. Paradoxically, the more you become like Christ, the more you become authentically yourself.

    In this profound exploration of Christian identity, psychologist and spiritual director David G. Benner illuminates the spirituality of self-discovery. He exposes the false selves that you may hide behind and calls you to discover the true self that emerges from your uniqueness in Christ. Freeing you from illusions about yourself, Benner shows that self-understanding leads to the fulfillment of your God-given destiny and vocation.

    Rest assured, you need not try to be someone you are not. But you will deepen your experience of God through discovering the gift of being yourself.

    This expanded edition, one of three titles in The Spiritual Journey trilogy, includes a new epilogue and an experiential guide with questions for individual reflection or group discussion.

  • Christian Writers Guide To The Book Proposal

    $10.95

    A complete proposal sells your book, pure and simple. But some authors don’t think a proposal is necessary. Perhaps you already have a contract, or you plan to self-publish. If you don’t have to sell the book to a publisher, why write a proposal? That reasoning sounds logical, but there are purposes for a book proposal beyond selling it to a publisher. In A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal, I share six reasons why it benefits you to write a book proposal and seven items that should be part of every book proposal. A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal is based on my previously published writing and on my teaching at Christian writers’ conferences around the country. The material included applies to writers and book projects of all sorts: fiction and nonfiction; completed manuscripts and unwritten book ideas, first-time and previously published authors, traditionally published, indie, and self-published. So, give your book idea a chance for success. Learn how with A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal.

    $15.99

    Do we regard our place of work as a prison? Is our place of work where we fulfil God’s purpose for our life? Should church leaders consider returning to work?

    This book is for every working man, woman and church leader: to challenge what we believe, what we preach, the language that we use and the way we behave, and to help us bring about a change in ‘doing church’ – where the church supports the workers as well as the workers the church.

    Many people are restless, so dissatisfied, so frustrated because they can’t see a way out of the prison of work. Yet workers have a job to do for Jesus. It’s a high calling. But a hard one. And impossible without Christ.

    Can my life matter? How can I thrive? The answer to both questions is vocation. Vocation is more than our job. It is our relationships and responsibilities woven into the work of God. For decades Steve Garber has traveled the world, coming alongside a wide range of people as they seek to make sense of their world and their lives. We meet, with Garber, leaders from the Tiananmen Square protest in China and a group of musicians who called themselves Jars of Clay. And we meet ordinary people too, like: Jonathan who learned he would rather build houses than study historyTodd and Maria who adopted creative schedules so they could parent better and practice medicineD.J. who helped Congress move into the Internet AgeSusan who built a home business of hand-printing stationary using a letterpressSantiago who works with majority-world nations in need of capitalClaudius and Deirdre whose openhearted home has always been a place for people Vocation is when we come to know the world in all its joy and pain, and still love it. Vocation is following our calling to seek the welfare of the world we live in. And in helping it to flourish, we find that we flourish too. Garber offers here a book for parents, for those in the arts, in the academy, in public service, in the trades and in commerce–for all who want to discover the virtue of vocation.

  • Life On The Wire

    $17.99

    Imbalance is natural.

    The key is to make it purposeful.

    In Life on the Wire, New York Times best-selling author Todd Duncan challenges the status quo in search of a better, smarter way to work and live. He profiles several people striking out to find “balance.” You’ll meet an entrepreneur, a bartender, and an accountant, among others. You’ll hear their stories, their challenges, their insights, and the critical lessons they learned. Duncan contends the last thing we need amid life’s inherent imbalance is another attempt at a how-to formula for perfect balancea*equal parts work and life. In fact, he argues that such a holy grail does not exist. Instead, he has issued a more pragmatic formula he calls purposeful imbalance: the process of purposefully leaning toward work without sacrificing life and purposefully leaning toward life without damaging your career. It is precisely the way a tight-rope walker makes his way across a one-inch rope without falling.

    “I’ve always believed that when you’re at work, you should work hard, and when you’re at home, you should play hard. That’s easy to say, but for a lot of people it’s hard to do.

In this book Gordon Smith invites us to discover our vocation by listening to God and becoming coworkers with him.

In Acing the Interview, the employment expert Dr. Phil called “the best of the best” gives job seekers candid advice for answering even the most unexpected questions, including: You really don’t have as much experience as we would like-why should we hire you? * How many hours in your previous jobs did you have to work each week to get everything done? * What do you consider most valuable-a high salary, job recognition, or advancement? The book also arms readers with questions to ask prospective employers that could prevent their making a big job mistake: What would you say are the worst parts of this job? * What are the major problems facing the company and this department? * Why aren’t you promoting from within?

  • Failing Forward : Turning Mistakes Into Stepping Stones For Success

    $19.99

    Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? Call them lucky, blessed, or possessors of the Midas touch. What is the real reason for their success? Is it family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood?
    John Maxwell has the answer—the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

    Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

    “I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway,” says Maxwell. “Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. Stop failing backward and start failing forward!”

  • Balancing Work And Life

    $13.99

    Life is more like a marathon than a sprint. Here’s how to stay well conditioned.

    Bill Butterworth will make you laugh-and learn while you’re doing it! In the opening chapter of this powerful little book, Bill shares with you how, while running his rotund body in a nightmarish 440-yard dash, he learned a great lesson:
    Life is much more like a marathon than a sprint.

    The attitudes and actions that result in steady success over the long haul are what make for long-term satisfaction and achievement. To experience this for yourself, you need to understand how to deal with life’s inevitable challenges:
    *The “Hazies”-losing sight of long-term goals
    *The “Lazies”-lacking the self-discipline to bring life back into focus
    *The “Crazies”-allowing life to run out of control

    Each of these can be conquered by three “clarifying triangles:” setting clear priorities, learning the discipline of endurance, and reaching the finish line through skillful pacing. It all adds up to a succinct and inspiring guide to balancing excellence at work with fulfillment in all of life.

  • Marketplace Priest

    $15.99

    In Marketplace Priest, Frank Marinkovich, M.D. presents us two ways to conduct business. There is a way of a career versus the way of holy calling. A career is a self-chosen pursuit. It is based on something rational such as security, necessity, vacation, or parental desire. Maybe it satisfies your need for identity. A holy calling is a destiny that was birthed in the heart of God. A calling awakens you to the reality that your destiny started in eternity first in the mind and heart of God. Do you know God, and has God set you free? Then concurrent with that liberty is a mandate to set the culture free. This culture is the area that you are in: business, law, medicine, the arts, government, the trades, etc. It is of necessity that Scripture exhorts us to wake up. Liberation is our calling, cultural reform our mandate. The method starts with who you are. It starts with the nature of Christ, the Spirit of sonship. This book is a must read for all those involved in the marketplace as it will awaken you to God’s destiny, to bring transformation to you and to your sphere of influence. “If there ever was a timely book, this is one. Here is a medical doctor, Frank Marinkovich, cognizant of the concern of the Lord for our vocational calling. He writes in such a practical manner about the “how to” in taking truth out of the meeting place into the market place. In a very clear and definitive fashion we are challenged to see the workplace as an open door of ministry. It is rare today to find someone other than a church leader with such insights and convictions. This is a must read for every member of the body of Christ who desires to make a difference in the marketplace.” JAMES HAMMAN President, Foundations Ministries “As the Spirit of God continues to awaken and endorse those called to marketplace ministries, many new books will emerge. Some will be filled with inspiration and some simply with information. Frank Marinkovich has eclipsed them both; his book is filled with revelation, and the best part of it all is that he is living it out in his life and in his business.” DENNIS PEACOCKE President, Strategic Christian Services “Dr Frank Marinkovich is certainly qualified to speak about this very important subject. I have personally observed him as he has dealt with the issues of health and life purpose with many people, including my wife and I and many of our staff members. His insight into the marketplace and your purpose in life will encourage you and his passion

  • Also A Mother

    $24.99

    As the twentieth century closes, the cry for equality between the sexes is provoking unprecedented conflicts between women and men in the workplace and in the family. Women of all colors and classes continue to carry out an enormous amount of indispenable, unrenumerated caring labor, which at once undergirds and is peripheral to human life, as men have defined it and therefore without value. Also a Mother protests this defined it, and therefore without value. Also a Mother protests this definition of work and value, and claims that beneath the everyday scuffles over gender roles and child care lies an essential religious crisis of work and love. Drawing on her situation as seminary professor and mother of three sons, Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore argues that Christian ideals of mother self-sacrifice and fatherly hard work, as they have been interpreted by church tradition and promoted in society at large, not only fail the lives of many people today, but misrepresent both the intent of God’s creation and the promise of the gospel message itself. She asks: How might theological doctrines of love, self sacrifice, creation, procreation, vocation, and community better respond to women and men who want to work in fulfilling ways and to love in intimate relationships, including those that involve raising children?
