  • Before The Wrath

    $22.99

    Bible scholars continue to debate the timing of the Rapture, but why is such a mysterious event prophesied to happen in the first place? Is there a deeper understanding surrounding this occurrence that we’ve lost over the millennia that those living in the first-century clearly understood? Newly rediscovered ancient anthropological evidence from the time of Christ finally reveals unprecedented findings that could prove the upcoming Rapture is not only real to a skeptical world but sheds new light on how and why this event must take place. Regardless of your Tribulation Period views, Before the Wrath will captivate believers and non-believers alike; revealing new depths of theological understanding regarding what Jesus revealed to the ancient Galileans about the end of the world in ways you could never have imagined.

    These findings resulted from 10-years of research in Israel by leading ancient anthropological scholars which rediscovered lost Middle-Eastern views regarding how and why the biblical catching away was prophesied to occur. While everyone has been debating when this event is to happen, we’ve forgotten to ask why it does, and the answer could be the greatest theological discovery of our time. To fully present the impact this genuine eye-opening discovery has on the world, award winning documentary writer and director Brent Miller Jr, reproduces what Jesus Christ Himself unveiled to the ancient Galileans regarding the end of the world through emotional and beautiful cinematic reenactments with over 60 actors and extras on a Hollywood set.

    Narrated by Kevin Sorbo (God’s Not Dead, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), this eschatological docudrama features the following experts:

    *Jack Hibbs – Theologist and Host of ‘Real Life’ on SiriusXM
    *Amir Tsarfati – Founder and President of Behold Israel
    *Jan Markell – Founder of Olive Tree Ministries
    *JD Farag – Theologist and Eschatologist
    *Scott McConnell – Executive Director of LifeWay Research
    *Jay McCarl – Ancient Middle Eastern Anthropologist
    *Lizette Dillinger – Qualitative Director at LifeWay Research.

  • Break Away Amish

    $28.99

    21 Chapters

    Additional Info
    I am the grandson of Bishop Sam Mullet, who was arrested for the Amish beard-cutting attacks. This is my story.

    Beard-cutting attacks on Amish people in the middle of the night. Five incidents. Nine victims. How could members of a Christian tradition known for peace and forgiveness enact such violence? What could make members of one Amish group turn against other Amish? In Breakaway Amish, Johnny Mast tells in riveting detail how his Amish community became increasingly isolated from other Amish people, and how the wishes and edicts of his grandfather, Bishop Sam Mullet, overtook daily life in the group. Over time, members became convinced that cutting their own hair was a sign of repentance and remorse. When that conviction led them to cut off the beards of those outside their community, however, it was more than a strange religious ritual. It was a crime.

    Here is an eyewitness account of the disturbing events at Bergholz, an Amish community gone awry. Yet redemption dwells even here, in the bravery and conviction of one who chose to break free.

  • Church Undone : Documents From The German Christian Faith Movement 1932-194

    $59.00

    For the first time in English, Mary M. Solberg presents a selection of German Christian documents. Her introduction sets the historical context. Includes responses critical of the German Christians by Karl Barth and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

  • On Care For Our Common Home

    $10.95

    Pope Francis’ landmark document on human ecology, On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si’), is the first encyclical completely devoted to the topic. It is addressed to every living person on this planet and aims to spark a dialogue with all people about our common home. It challenges each one of us to ask ourselves, our corporations, and our governments: How can anyone claim they are building a better future without thinking of the environment? Within this framework, Pope Francis powerfully draws our attention also to the poor, who share an intimate relationship with the fragility of the earth.

    Aligned and united with the concerns of scientists, philosophers, theologians, and civic groups, Pope Francis calls each of us to become painfully aware so that we can dare to turn what is happening to the world into our own personal suffering; thus we will responsibly discover what each of us can do about it.

    On Care for Our Common Home contextualizes the topic by first reviewing the present ecological crisis which is unprecedented in the history of humanity. The Holy Father then sketches out both ethical and spiritual principles from our Judaeo-Christian roots that come to bear on the conversation about human ecology. He stresses the need for a sound moral foundation and emphasizes that human life is itself a gift which must be defended from various forms of debasement. Of special note is the section on the deep causes that have brought about the present situation. Proposals for dialogue and action in the encyclical are broad, but are meant to affect international policy as well as individual lives. Lastly, helpful guidelines for human development are laid out based on the Christian wisdom tradition.

    A must-read for everyone, On Care for Our Common Home is an invitation to look at all of creation with our eyes wide open, since the distressed state of our Sister, Mother Earth requires a new and universal solidarity in which all of us work together in building our common home.

    Features & Benefits:

    Landmark document on ecology
    Invitation to dialogue addressed to everyone
    Helpful overview of present ecological situation
    Offers Pope Francis’ assessment of root causes of environmental problems
    Broad proposals offered to inform international policy
    Appeals for a new solidarity for all people to work together

    Noah’s Ark has been found! Turkish scientists and authorities at the highest level of government met in 1986 and reviewed the extensive research done by American explorers, headed by Ron Wyatt of Madison, Tennessee.

  • Children During The Holocaust

    $59.00

    Children during the Holocaust, from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes, and fates, of its youngest victims.

    The ten chapters follow the arc of the persecutory policies of the Nazis and their sympathizers and the impact these measures had on Jewish children and adolescents-from the years leading to the war, to the roundups, deportations, and emigrations, to hidden life and death in the ghettos and concentration camps, and to liberation and coping in the wake of war. This volume examines the reactions of children to discrimination, the loss of livelihood in Jewish homes, and the public humiliation at the hands of fellow citizens and explores the ways in which children’s experiences paralleled and diverged from their adult counterparts. Additional chapters reflect upon the role of non-Jewish children as victims, perpetrators, and bystanders during World War II.

    Offering a collection of personal letters, diaries, court testimonies, government documents, military reports, speeches, newspapers, photographs, and artwork, Children during the Holocaust highlights the diversity of children’s experiences during the nightmare years of the Holocaust.

    Additional Info
    Czernowitz at 100 represents a collection based on the proceedings of a 2008 international conference convened at York University in Toronto. Each chapter looks back at a portion over a long century, one marked with the mass migration of Ashkenazi Jews across the globe, two world wars, the Holocaust, the birth of Israel, and the rise and fall of the Soviet bloc. They assess the achievements and fate of those who participated in the 1908 Yiddish Language Conference that was held at Czernowitz, now known as Chernivtsi, Ukraine.

    Featuring contributions from a new generation of scholars re-examining eastern European Jewish life, the successes and failures of the Yiddishist movement are examined. The contributors discuss how Yiddishism-a fascinating example of language-based nationalism-shaped the political and cultural landscape of territorially dispersed Jews across Eastern Europe and the world during the twentieth century

    Additional Info
    The twentieth century will forever be marked by the horrific event of the Shoah. As a young man, the future John Paul II witnessed this horror during the Nazi occupation of Poland. His pontificate achieved a number of groundbreaking steps in the Catholic Church’s relationship with the Jewish people. This book both reflects upon John Paul II’s achievements, and seeks to continue the theological and philosophical dialogue that he cherished. By examining together the words and deeds of John Paul II, eminent Jewish and Catholic scholars exemplify in this volume the dialogue that John Paul fostered. Together, Jews and Catholics can encourage each other in the tasks of knowing the Creator, living a life worthy of the created dignity that human beings possess, and defending the vulnerable among us. As Dostoevsky warned before the horrors of the twentieth century, without God, anything is permitted. Following in the footsteps of John Paul II, we discover that our search for meaning and truth is one that needs to be undertaken arm-in-arm. Contributors include Hadley Arkes, David G. Dalin, Robert P. George, Matthew Levering, Bruce Marshall, David Novak, Michael Novak, Gregory Vall, and George Weigel.

    The Documentary Dimensions Of Talmudic Phenomenology

    The Parable (Mashal) A Documentary Approach

    Appendix: Bibliography Of Jacob Neusner

    Additional Info
    This book responds to a question that came to the author from Professor Maren Niehoff of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem: Have you written a simple introduction to your documentary theory and method, which can serve as a starting point for my students? In this book are gathered eight of the more fundamental items of documentary theory and practice-three in theory, five in practice-for Professor Neihoff’s students and anyone else who takes an interest in the formative history of Judaism. The documentary thesis of Rabbinic literature holds that the document-the Mishnah, Sifra, Lamentations, Rabbah, the Bavli, for example-forms the basic building block of the Rabbinic tradition. Excluded by that definition are sayings attributed to, and stories told about, named sages. These cannot serve in the reconstruction of the Rabbinic tradition, its literature, history, religion, and theology.

  • Stop The Presses

    $25.95

    Stop the presses! You’ve heard newspaper editors shout that phrase in old movies. Joseph Farah was never a newspaper editor in the movies – he was one in real life. But he no longer works with ink, presses and newsprint. Fourteen years ago, Farah founded WorldNetDaily.com (WND.com) and became a pioneer on the New Media frontier. Today WND.com is the largest independent news service on the Internet. Stop the Presses! is not just Farah’s story, but that of a new wave of media superstars who have forever changed the way Americans get their news and express their views. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Matt Drudge, these are just some of the New Media names that old-school media like ABC News has acknowledged rule our world. This revolution has shaken the foundations of the mainstream media, eroding its ability to control the flow of information… and with it, the power to control the lives of millions around the world. The New Media revolution’s beginnings have never been told – until now.

    About The Participants

    Additional Info
    The Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth is the central tenet of the Christian faith. St. Paul put it succinctly: if Christ did not rise from the dead, our faith is in vain. This remarkable dialogue between the leading Christian scholar of the Resurrection and the world’s best-known philosophical atheist resulted from a three-hour discussion on a popular religious television talk show, moderated by John Ankerberg.

    The dialogue began with both participants agreeing to 12 separate historical facts that occurred when Jesus died and shortly afterward. Habermas and Flew then explored how each of their perspectives could account for what happened. Flew offered a psychological thesis interpreting the biblical accounts in natural terms. Habermas supported the historicity of the Resurrection by using contemporary critical methods. The discussion goes on to examine subjects such as medical details regarding crucifixion, extra-biblical sources for Jesus, the Jesus Seminar, St. Paul’s conversion experience and his contribution to the early Christian testimony.

    The interchange is marked by mutual respect and exceptional clarity of thought and expression. This is a book that will appeal to a wide audience of believers, seekers, and non-believers. The topic is timely, the participants renowned, and the presentation inviting to both scholar and layperson

  • Stay With Us Lord

    $3.50

    Mane Nobiscum Domine. A reflection of Pope John Paul II in preparation for the year of the Eucharist (October 2004-2005). The document is centered around the Gospel narrative of Jesus? appearance after Easter to the two disciples on the way to Emmaus. Even today amid our questions and difficulties, and even our bitter disappointments, the divine Wayfarer continues to walk at our side, opening to us the Scriptures and leading us to a deeper understanding of the mysteries of God.

    The document expresses a summary of Eucharistic theology. It encourages us to open ourselves up to the dimensions of the Mystery of the Eucharist and not reduce the Eucharist to our own dimensions. Some topics addressed include: the Eucharist as meal and as sacrifice; the Eucharist as expression of the fellowship which God wishes to establish with us and which we ourselves must build with each other; the eschatological aspect of the Eucharist; the mystery of the real presence; Eucharistic communion as both the source of and ecclesial communion ecclesial unity and its greatest manifestation; the Eucharist celebration as a charge to work for the spread of the gospel; the Eucharist as that which provides the interior strength needed for the Church?s mission; the Eucharist as a mode of being; and the impulse which the Eucharist gives to the community for a practical commitment to building a more just and fraternal society.

  • Scriptures In Dialogue

    $23.95

    In April 2003, Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, convened a group of twenty-five leading Christian and Muslim scholars for three days of theological dialogue.

    Scriptures in Dialogue presents a record of this seminar, held in Doha at the invitation of the Amir of Qatar. The focus of this gathering was the study of passages from the Qur’an and the Bible. Combining scholarship at the highest level with commitment to the practice of their faiths in the modern world, the participants addressed questions such as discernment of the Word of God, the place of women in their believing communities, and making space for the religious ‘Other’.

    At a time when the world’s attention was fixed on the conflict in Iraq, this inter faith gathering was also a hopeful sign of the deepening of the dialogue between Christians and Muslims which is so important for both faith communities today.

    It includes:

    Papers by Vincent Cornell, Basit Koshul, Esther Mombo, Mona Siddiqui, Tim Winter, Tom Wright and Francis Young.
    Substantial summaries of the discussions.
    Brief reflections from participants on the place of scripture in their own lives as believers.
    A major lecture on inter faith relations given by Rowan Williams in Birmingham shortly after the seminar.

  • Postville : A Clash Of Cultures In Heartland America

    $15.95

    In 1987, a group of Lubavitchers, one of the most orthodox and zealous of the Jewish sects, opened a kosher slaughterhouse just outside tiny Postville, Iowa (pop. 1,465). When the business became a worldwide success, Postville found itself both revived and divided. The town’s initial welcome of the Jews turned into confusion, dismay, and even disgust. By 1997, the town had engineered a vote on what everyone agreed was actually a referendum: whether or not these Jews should stay.

    The quiet, restrained Iowans were astonished at these brash, assertive Hasidic Jews, who ignored the unwritten laws of Iowa behavior in almost every respect. The Lubavitchers, on the other hand, could not compromise with the world of Postville; their religion and their tradition quite literally forbade it. Were the Iowans prejudiced, or were the Lubavitchers simply unbearable?

    Award-winning journalist Stephen G. Bloom found himself with a bird’s-eye view of this battle and gained a new perspective on questions that haunt America nationwide. What makes a community? How does one accept new and powerfully different traditions? Is money more important than history? In the dramatic and often poignant stories of the people of Postville – Jew and gentile, puzzled and puzzling, unyielding and unstoppable – lies a great swath of America today.

  • Letters And Papers From Prison (Abridged)

    $21.00

    One of the great classics of prison literature, Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, executed by the Nazis after incarceration in Tegel Prison. Acute and subtle, warm and perceptive, yet also profoundly moving, the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss, of courage, and of hope. Now reissued with a new Preface, by one of his leading interpreters. Bonhoeffer’s story seems as vitally relevant, as politically prophetic, and as theologically significant, as it did yesterday.

  • Durable Peace : Isreal And Its Place Among The Nations

    $34.00

    Benjamin Netanyahu’s primer on pro-Israel politics is an updated version of an earlier book, A Place Among the Nations. There’s a good reason for the revision, of course: in the years since the first book was published, Netanyahu has served as the prime minister of Israel. Yet A Durable Peace is not a stale politician’s memoir. It’s a resounding plea for Israel’s acceptance as a full member of the world community, as well as a call for understanding its unique security needs.
    Netanyahu displays his knack–perfect for the television era but also helpful on these pages–for channeling complex ideas into pithy statements. Here’s Netanyahu on the importance of Israel to the Jewish people: If there had been a Jewish state in the first half of the [20th] century, there would have been no Holocaust. And if there had not been a Jewish state after the Holocaust, there would have been no Jewish future. On the need for Arab concessions in the peace process: For the sake of peace, [the Arab states] must renounce their claims to part of the four ten-thousandths–.0004–of the lands they desire, which constitute the very heart of the Jewish homeland and the protective wall of the Jewish state. These are the statements of a skilled debater, and they represent a one-sided view of Middle Eastern politics. Yet Netanyahu also provides an excellent introduction to Zionism and the need to protect a small country against neighbors who have waged war against it. –John J. Miller

  • Hitlers Cross : The Revealing Story Of How The Cross Of Christ Was Used As

    $14.99

    1996 GOLD MEDALLION WINNER

    Fifty years ago, Hitler raised up the broken cross of the swastika and unleashed a terrible scourge on the world. Dr. Lutzer traces Hitler’s rise to power, reveals the role of the church in Germany’s tragedy, and issues a chilling warning about what could happen to America.

    Six million Jews dead.
    The monstrosity of Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich remains a stunning chapter in the pages of history. Although the power by which he hypnotized an entire nation is legendary, one question in particular begs an answer: Where was the church of Christ?

    Seduced by the Satanic majesty of The Fuhrer, church leaders throughout Germany allowed the Swastika a prominent place alongside the Christian cross in their sanctuaries. Nationalistic pride replaced the call of God to purity, and with few exceptions the German church looked away while Adolph Hitler implemented his Final Solution to his Jewish problem.

    How did this happen?
    In Hitler’s Cross, Erwin W. Lutzer examines the lessons that may be learned from studying the deception of the church:
    * the dangers of confusing church and state
    * how the church lost it focus
    * the role of God in human tragedy
    * the parameters of Satan’s freedom
    * the truth behind Hitler’s hatred of the Jews
    * the faithfulness of God to His people who suffer for Him
    * comparisons between Hitler’s rise and the coming of the Antichrist
    * America’s hidden cross–her dangerous trends

    Hitler’s Cross is the story of a nation whose church forgot its primary call and discovered it failure too late.

  • Steeples And Stacks

    $154.00

    Steeples and Stacks is an examination of the religion-based community group that formed in Youngstown, Ohio in 1977 in opposition to the proposed shutdown of a portion of the Youngstown Sheet and Tube’s steel works, one of the most dramatic of the plant closings that have come to symbolize American deindustrialization. Church leaders and steel workers banded together to form a powerful ecumenical political coalition, established links with Washington lobbyists, and proposed to buy the plant and run it as a community industry. Though the proposal ultimately failed, the story of the coalition illuminates the growing interaction of religious and public affairs in American life and provides an analysis of the dynamics of intergovernmental, corporate and community relations at the local level. Fuechtmann, who became involved as a participant-observer in the coalition and is trained in both political science and theology, focuses on the process of coalition formation and the pivotal role of religious leaders that distinguished the Youngstown case from so many other plant closings.
