  • Discipleship Opportunity : Leading A Great-Commission Church In A Post-Ever

    $16.99

    Help your church thrive in a post-everything world.

    The world is a very different place from what it was just a few years ago. Today’s post-everything world is arguably more divisive, political, indifferent, and impatient than ever. While many believe that the best course of action is to find a way back to how things used to be, is that actually the best way forward?

    Given the many ways that our world has changed, it’s time for Christian leadership strategies to change, and for churches to approach making disciples, evangelism, and preaching differently than yesterday. The Discipleship Opportunity is a powerful tool for church leaders seeking to navigate the challenges of our rapidly evolving, post-pandemic, post-Christian, and post-everything world. In this helpful resource, Daniel Im equips readers with practical ways to:

    *reach those who are spiritually asleep in your church and community,
    *disciple your church to know Jesus deeply, and
    *preach differently in today’s post-everything world.

    Discern your church’s path forward by learning how to diagnose which shifts to make. Learn disciple-making principles that are as straightforward as they are timely. Whether you’re a seasoned leader or just starting out, don’t miss this opportunity to emerge as a stronger, healthier, and more evangelistic church.

  • Ephesians Bible Study Book With Video Access (Student/Study Guide)

    $30.75

    Who am I? The question of identity is always in the back of our minds, and it’s currently at the forefront of social conversations. But the first question we need to ask is: Who is God? Then we can begin to consider, And who am I in light of who He is? In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul describes God as a merciful and forgiving Father who unites us in Christ and empowers us to live by the Spirit. We’re adopted children and fellow citizens with the saints because of God’s loving pursuit on our behalf.

    In this 7-session study, Bible teachers, authors, and friends Jackie Hill Perry, Jasmine Holmes, and Melissa Kruger walk through the book of Ephesians, examining the invaluable truths Paul’s letter holds for us today. Along the way, they’ll help us understand the riches of our inheritance as daughters of our heavenly Father, as well as what it means to walk in a manner worthy of our calling.

    Video Sessions:

    Session 1: Introduction (11:14)-Authors Jackie Hill Perry, Jasmine Holmes, and Melissa Kruger welcome you to the Ephesians Bible study, provide an overview for this book of the Bible, and explain what you can expect from their conversation-based videos.

    Session 2: Ephesians 1: Praise & Prayer (41:50)-In this video, the authors discuss Ephesians 1 together. Their conversation includes Paul’s detailed list of spiritual blessings for those who are in Christ, as well as Paul’s personal prayer for the Ephesian Christians.

    Session 3: Ephesians 2: Alive & Unified (33:17)-Belonging to Christ transforms every aspect of our lives. This is one of the key takeaways from this video session as the authors unpack Paul’s words in Ephesians 2. They also discuss how God’s grace means we aren’t left dead in our sins, but we’re given new life and invited into relationship with God and His people.

    Session 4: Ephesians 3: Mystery & Power (34:41)-In this video session, the authors spend time discussing the beautiful mystery Paul describes in Ephesians 3-the expansive reach of God’s love-and they consider how Paul’s example of prayer for others can inspire our own prayers.

    Session 5: Ephesians 4: Unity & Maturity (33:53)-Paul’s letter takes a noticeable shift in Ephesians 4. He moves from teaching about who God is to teaching about how to live for Him. Among the topics discussed in this video are the unity and diversity of the body of Christ and distinguishing characteristics of the life of a child of God.

    Session 6: Ephesians 5: Light & Love (35:12)-In

  • Worth Seeing : Viewing Others Through God’s Eyes

  • Integration Journey : A Student’s Guide To Faith, Culture, And Psychology

    $30.00

    There are numerous models, theories, and resources on integrating psychology and the Christian faith. But practicing integration in the real world is something else entirely. To move from theory to practice, we need learning informed by experiences, reflection on those experiences, and feedback from others. This integration process is a lifelong journey.

    William B. Whitney and Carissa Dwiwardani offer a fresh approach to integration as embodied, lived, and practical. These two seasoned teachers guide students through the process of theological reflection on psychology as part of their spiritual formation and vocation, requiring each person to incorporate their own stories, culture, and experiences. True integration, the authors contend, should work for justice in our churches, communities, and wider society, with particular attention to the marginalized and oppressed.

    Using guided exercises and prompts for reflection and discussion, The Integration Journey invites students to make their own contributions to constructing a culturally informed, organic model of integration that works for them. The goal of integrative reflection is ultimately to be shaped so that we can better love God and others and work toward God’s kingdom here on earth.

  • 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.

  • Truth In True Crime Investigators Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guid

    $24.99

    Dig deeper into fifteen life-truths gleaned from both contemporary murder investigations and ancient biblical wisdom.

    For decades, cold-case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace investigated the causes behind deaths and murders, chasing one lead after another as he attempted to solve the case.? Several of these cases remain open, unsolved mysteries.

    Wallace also investigated the most notable death in human history–the death of Jesus Christ–and it transformed him from an atheist into a follower of Jesus. Investigating death, surprisingly, taught him a great deal about life and the nature of people. In The Truth in True Crime Investigator’s Guide (video access included), Wallace explores the clues lying behind our human nature as he uncovers fifteen life-truths gleaned from both contemporary murder investigations and ancient Biblical wisdom.

    Every lesson introduces you to an investigation of a death as Wallace and his partner Rick chase down leads and along the way learn guiding principles to help us to thrive and flourish as human beings created in the image of God.? These fifteen attributes of human beings have been confirmed by modern sociological studies, but were first described on the pages of Scripture. Even if you don’t believe in God, these are valuable insights into our human condition, helping you better understand your own identity and the identity of your Creator.

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

  • More Than A Sermon

    $24.99

    Preach with compassion and conviction

    In More than a Sermon, Douglas D. Webster highlights the prophetic and pastoral challenge of preaching today. The task is both harder and easier than we imagine, as we are called to proclaim the biblical text in a way that convicts a hostile world while encouraging our congregations to rest in Christ’s love. We need preaching that both swings the hammer that breaks hard hearts yet does not break the bruised reeds in our care.

    Offering practical insights and examples, Webster explores what it means to preach the gospel in different seasons such as:

    *Advent and Lent
    *Memorial services and weddings
    *Times of crisis or social impact

    More than a Sermon is a valuable resource for both new pastors and veteran preachers who want to proclaim the whole counsel of God with power and wisdom.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Pastor As Leader

    $19.99

    Practical, Biblical Advice for Effective Pastoral Leadership

    Many pastors feel torn between preaching and leading, but both responsibilities are essential. Without faithful exposition of Scripture, churches risk straying theologically. Without strong leadership, teaching lacks spiritual zeal. How can pastors find balance and steward their calling effectively?

    In The Pastor as Leader, John Currie equips pastors to be men of God who competently carry out their purpose: leading God’s people through the preaching of God’s word. Recognizing a common disconnect between the roles of preaching and leadership, Currie offers foundational principles for pastoring “under Christ’s appointment, conformed to Christ’s character, which exemplifies and implements Christ’s wisdom, preached from Christ’s word.” By integrating two primary roles of the pastorate, readers will learn how to faithfully and confidently proclaim the Scriptures as they communicate biblical vision and strategy for the church’s mission.

    *Encouragement and Instruction for Pastors: Biblical advice for leading the church through preaching the gospel

    *Biblical and Theological: Explores the role of a pastor by looking at the life of Jesus, the early church in Acts, and leaders throughout church history

    *Practical: Takes pastors from principles to practice, with helpful advice and reflection questions

    *A Thoughtful Gift for Working and Aspiring Pastors

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Sermon On The Mount Bible Study Book Revised And Expanded With Video Access (Stu

    $34.75

    In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right-a study on blessedness; a reflection on the Lord’s Prayer; a discussion of religious devotion, money, ambition, and relationships.

    What if we navigated these three chapters in Matthew as they were originally heard? What if we read them as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about what it means to be a follower of Jesus?

    This 9-session study will give you the opportunity to do just that. Come and learn from Jesus, just as His disciples did. First released in 2014, this study is now updated with new teaching videos from Jen Wilkin.
