    *Heaven the Celestial Fire
    *Heaven: Avoiding the Fire

  • Faith At Home

    $25.95

    Home (not the congregation) and parents (not clergy, youth ministers, or Sunday School) are the key mechanisms by which religious faith and practice are transmitted intergenerationally. Recent studies indicate that the single most important factor in youth becoming committed and engaged in their religious faith as young adults is that the family talks about religion at home. However, for many parents in the United States, religious language is a foreign language. Faith at Home will help parents learn this “second language” and introduce it to their children in simple, meaningful, concrete ways. Parents often ask: How do we introduce prayer to our children if we do not necessarily believe prayer changes outcomes? How do we approach reading the Bible with our children when our own relationship with it is mixed or complicated? How do we talk about difficult things and where do we find God in the midst of them? How do we teach our children to make a difference in the world? How do we connect what happens at church to what happens at home? These questions and many more are addressed with talking points, practices, and resources provided for each subject.

  • Disaster Ministry Handbook

    $30.00

    When disasters happen, people turn to local churches as centers for response and assistance. When floods or tornadoes devastate an area, or when shootings and violence shock a community, knowing what to do can be the difference between calm and chaos, courage and fear, life and death. But few churches plan in advance for what they should do – until the storm hits.

Jamie Aten and David Boan, codirectors of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute, provide a practical guide for disaster preparedness. Disaster ministry is a critically important work of the church, preparing for the unthinkable, providing relief to survivors, caring for the vulnerable, helping communities recover. Filled with resources for emergency planning and crisis management, this book provides best practices for local congregations. By taking action in advance, your church can help prevent harm and save lives during a disaster.

    The time to plan is now. Be prepared.

  • Train Up A Child

    $16.49

    TRAIN UP A CHILD is a teacher education textbook for Christian parents engaged in laying the foundation for life and learning during the preschool years. It defines the meaning and purpose for education and provides a curriculum for the parents in developing the necessary educational awareness in all areas of learning. Following are several quotations that highlight the Christian character and Biblical worldview of both the author and the Book.

    You have given birth to a one and only model, with a potential never before registered on earth, and now God also tells you that you are responsible to train up this little one in the way he should go-both for time and for eternity.

    Teaching/Learning should begin in the womb and never cease.

    Learning is (1) the acquisition of knowledge, (2) the structuring of the knowledge processing systems resulting in a proper understanding and use of knowledge, and (3) the structuring of the individual-building what we know as character.

    The way he should go- is the path especially belonging to this child fitted for his individual characteristics.

    A child must be systematically instructed, initiated in the way of life, from the earliest dawn of intelligence.

    First, the parents must be characterized by their supreme love for God. Loving Him as LORD with all their hearts, with all their souls, and with all their might. This is the highest teaching credential for training children in the way they should go.

    If you desire to raise your children to love and obey Jesus Christ then you must give prime attention to instilling a value system within their minds that is truly minted from the gold of heaven-values that have eternal meaning.

    Think of it this way, God is trusting you to work with Him to conform your child into the likeness of Christ. This is the great goal, and reward for faithful parenting.

  • I Declare War

    $16.49

    From I Declare War…
    “Deliverance Ministry is a very complex ministry and one that it is very real. The world has
    led even the Church into the mindset that deliverance is about theatrics and gimmicks. The
    image of a monstrous, behorned, red-eyed animal figure attacking Christians is not
    consistent with the clear teachings of the Bible. This book (based on the author’s research)
    will serve as a reference that reveals the truth against various myths about deliverance that
    are widespread in the Church. It will help those who are called to Deliverance Ministry
    understand what can be done to stop the activities of the devil in the lives of God’s people.
    This work is not hypothetical in its nature; it is actuality confirmed by the truth of the Word
    of God. Scripture contains many references to deliverance.
    “The Church must be open to discussing these passages and applying their truth. There is
    no excuse for ignorance in the Body of Christ concerning spiritual matters. One of the gains
    and benefits of this research is to free the mind of preconceived notions about the spirit
    realm and encourage the Church to seek ‘freedom’ for the people of God. Legitimate
    Deliverance Ministry has been harmed by many who have intentionally incited fear and
    paranoia in people to render the Church powerless. Knowledge is power, however, and
    spiritual truths should be taught and practiced from the inception of Jesus Christ as Lord and
    Savior in the Church. This gives the Body of Christ an accurate picture of the victory that
    Jesus won on the cross.”

  • Medical Ethics And The Faith Factor

    $47.99

    Medical Ethics and the Faith Factor is a reference book that promises to be a very useful resource for health care professionals, chaplains, pastors, priests, rabbis, and other people of faith who frequently interact with individuals and families facing illness and disability.

    Robert Orr brings to the table the accumulated knowledge of four decades in the medical field, many of which he spent dealing with clinical ethics. However, unlike many books on medical ethics, this isn’t simply a platform to convince us that Orr’s opinion is fact. Instead, it is a reality check replete with real case studies that reintroduce the human element to a discussion so often detached from the very people it claims to concern.

    In part 1 Orr explains the ethical and theological foundations of contemporary clinical ethics. Parts 2, 3, and 4 focus on specific ethical dilemmas. Here Orr tackles such questions as What management options are available when the family of a patient who is brain dead is unwilling to accept the diagnosis? Is a feeding tube ethically obligatory for a patient with advanced dementia? Is it ethically permissible to continue to prescribe narcotics for a patient who admits to their misuse? Should we provide organ transplantation for an undocumented foreign national?

    Finally, part 5 explores ways that family members, clergy, counselors, and friends can assist patients and families as they struggle with these difficult decisions, emphasizing the priesthood of believers and the importance of prayer for God’s wisdom and peace.

    Medical Ethics and the Faith Factor is a timely entry into a growing ethical discussion. Readers of this book will come away with a greater familiarity with clinical issues, a recognition of the moral questions raised by those issues – including those of religion and culture – and the ability to render more thoughtful assistance to patients and families struggling to find answers.
