  • My Body Is Not A Prayer Request

    $19.99

    The church has forgotten that we worship a disabled God whose wounds survived resurrection, says Amy Kenny. It is time for the church to start treating disabled people as full members of the body of Christ who have much more to offer than a miraculous cure narrative and to learn from their embodied experiences.

    Written by a disabled Christian, this book shows that the church is missing out on the prophetic witness and blessing of disability. Kenny reflects on her experiences inside the church to expose unintentional ableism and cast a new vision for Christian communities to engage disability justice. She shows that until we cultivate church spaces where people with disabilities can fully belong, flourish, and lead, we are not valuing the diverse members of the body of Christ.

    Offering a unique blend of personal storytelling, fresh and compelling writing, biblical exegesis, and practical application, this book invites readers to participate in disability justice and create a more inclusive community in church and parachurch spaces. Engaging content such as reflection questions and top-ten lists are included.

  • Uneasy Conscience Of Modern Fundamentalism

    $24.99

    An Influential Guide on Evangelicals’ Critical Role in Social Issues

    As social problems including prejudice, classism, and war dominated conversations in the 1940s, orthodox Christians became known for their indifference rather than compassionate leadership around the issues. If the gospel has the power to change the world, shouldn’t Christians engage in global matters with biblical authority?

    In The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism, theologian Carl F. H. Henry critiques separatist evangelicals and their absence from the social arena, calling on all Christians to unite humanitarianism with Christ-centered leadership to impact the kingdom of God. With cultural and political analysis that is still timely today, he inspires believers to reject pessimism about the human condition and embrace action, responding to global needs and pointing to Christ as the ultimate solution for every social ill.

    Topical Explores social ethics, politics, global order, and more from a Christian perspective

    Theological: Compares religious liberalism and fundamentalism in culture, reformation, supernaturalism, and redemption

    Edited Edition: This classic book from Carl F. H. Henry, a prominent figure in evangelicalism, has been updated with a foreword by Russell Moore

  • Know Own Change.

    $14.99

    Before you can do what’s right, you have to see what’s right.

    When it comes to racial reconciliation, we often ask, “Where do we go from here?” But has it ever occurred to you that the real question is “Why are we still here?” In other words, until we’ve seen the problem of racism correctly-its history, its current effects, and its root causes-we aren’t equipped to head in the right direction. We’ll just keep falling into the same old patterns. The blind will lead the blind, and no one will have the vision to foster real change.

    But take hope! Restoring our spiritual sight is exactly what Jesus came to achieve.

    In this book, Josh Clemons and Hazen Stevens-one white, one black, and both brothers in Christ-will invite you to start the journey toward racial reconciliation and justice. Join us as we:

    *Know the story of racism in the West, the church’s complicity in it, and how that story impacts each of us

    *Own our own contributory roles in the present and historic sin of racism

    *Change the story by getting involved with the laborious-yet glorious!-work of racial reconciliation and justice

    In Know. Own. Change., the authors set aside the world’s patterns of division and hate. Instead, they set a tone that emerges from spiritual kinship in Christ. Every page seeks to honor Him, pointing believers back to Jesus as the one who is reconciling all things to himself.

  • Pure : Why The Bible’s Plan For Sexuality Isn’t Outdated, Irrelevant, Or Op

    $14.99

    Few things bring more immediate scrutiny and impassioned angst among young adult Christians today than hearing the words “purity culture.” Serious flaws from purity culture deserve to be scrutinized, especially given its lasting negative effects on some raised in the movement. Many Christians today reject the movement-and all that it stood for-wholesale. However, we can’t ignore the clear sexual ethics of the Bible. Pure dives into the big picture of God’s design for men and women regarding sexuality, and seeks to reclaim one of the clearest teaching in the scriptures: the call to sexual purity. While purity culture gets the truth right, the approach and gospel elements it espouses are often wrong. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water, but rather celebrate God’s great design for marriage and the loving boundaries he has put in place for our joy, protection, and flourishing.

  • Jesus And Gender

    $24.99

    Loving one another as sisters and brothers in Jesus

    Many Christian women and men carry heavy burdens. Much teaching on gender relations, roles, and rules binds the conscience beyond what Scripture actually teaches. Gender has become a battleground for power. But God created men and women not to compete for glory but to cooperate for his glory.

    In Jesus and Gender, Elyse Fitzpatrick and Eric Schumacher paint a new vision for gender-Christ’s gentle and lowly heart. The centrality of the gospel has been lost in gender debates. Our ultimate example is Jesus, our humble king, who used his power to serve others. So we must rethink our identities, roles, and relationships around him. Christ transformed enemies into family. Men and women are allies in God’s mission.

    Drawing from Scripture and experience, Fitzpatrick and Schumacher show how Jesus’s example speaks to all areas of our lives as men and women, including vocation, marriage, parenting, friendships, and relating to each other as sisters and brothers in Christ. Real–life testimonies from a variety of Christians-including Christine Caine, Justin Holcomb, Karen Swallow Prior, and others-show a variety of men and women freed to pursue their gifts for God’s glory.

    Fitzpatrick and Schumacher’s perspective untangles what God has said about gender from what he hasn’t. By coming to Jesus, women and men can find rest.

  • Truths Table : Black Women’s Musing On Life, Love, And Liberation

    $26.00

    A collection of essays and stories documenting the lived theology and spirituality we need to hear in order to lean into a more freeing, loving, and liberating faith–from the hosts of the beloved Truth’s Table podcast

    Once upon a time, an activist, a theologian, and a psychologist walked into a group chat. Everything was laid out on the table: Dating. Politics. The Black church. Pop culture. Soon, other Black women began pulling up chairs to gather round. And so, the Truth’s Table podcast was born.

    In their literary debut, co-hosts Christina Edmondson, Michelle Higgins, and Ekemini Uwan offer stories by Black women and for Black women exploring theology, politics, race, culture, and gender issues through a Christian lens. For anyone seeking to probe the spiritual dimensions of hot-button issues within the church, or anyone thirsty to deepen their faith, Truth’s Table provides exactly the survival guide we need, including:

    – Michelle Higgins’s unforgettable treatise revealing the way “racial reconciliation” is a spiritually bankrupt, empty promise that can often drain us of the ability to do real justice work

    – Ekemini Uwan’s exploration of Blackness as the image of God in the past, present, and future

    – Christina Edmondson’s reimagination of what a more just and liberating form of church discipline might look like–one that acknowledges and speaks to the trauma in the room

    These essays deliver a compelling theological re-education and pair the spiritual formation and political education necessary for Black women of faith.

  • Life Were Looking For

    $24.00

    A deeply reflective primer on creating meaningful connections, rebuilding abundant communities, and living in a way that engages our full humanity in an age of unprecedented anxiety and loneliness–from the author of The Tech-Wise Family

    Our greatest need is to be recognized–to be seen, loved, and embedded in rich relationships with the people around us. But for the last century, we’ve displaced that need with the ease of technology. We’ve dreamed of power that doesn’t require relationship (what the premodern world called magic) and abundance that doesn’t require dependence (what Jesus called Mammon). Yet even before a pandemic disrupted that quest, we felt threatened and strangely out of place: lonely, anxious, bored amidst endless options, oddly disconnected amidst infinite connections.

    In The Life We’re Looking For, bestselling author and cultural critic Andy Crouch reveals how we traded lives of rich relationship for a world of impersonal power–and how each of us can fight back. From the generosity of early Christians to the efforts of entrepreneurs working to create more humane technology, Crouch shows how we can restore true community and put people first in a world dominated by money, power, and devices.

    There is a way out of our impersonal world, into a world where knowing and being known is the heartbeat of our days, our households, and our economies. Where our human vulnerabilities are seen not as something to be escaped but the actual key to our becoming who were made to be together. Where technology serves us rather than masters us–and helps us become more human, not less.

  • Recovering Racists : Dismantling White Supremacy And Reclaiming Our Humanit

    $18.99

    As a white Afrikaner woman growing up in South Africa during apartheid, Idelette McVicker was steeped in a community and a church that reinforced white supremacy and shielded her from seeing her neighbors’ oppression. But a series of circumstances led her to begin questioning everything she thought was true about her identity, her country, and her faith.

    Recovering Racists shares McVicker’s journey over 30 years and across three continents to shatter the lies of white supremacy embedded deep within her soul. She helps us realize that grappling with the legacy of white supremacy and recovering from racism is lifelong work that requires both inner transformation and societal change. It is for those of us who have hit rock bottom in the human story of race, says McVicker. We must acknowledge our internalized racism, repent of our complicity, and learn new ways of being human.

    This book invites us on the long, slow journey of healing the past, making things right, changing old stories, and becoming human together. As we work for the liberation of everyone, we also find liberation for ourselves. Each chapter ends with discussion questions.

  • How To Heal Our Racial Divide

    $22.99

    Why must everything be so black and white? Like many of us, Derwin Gray is weary of the racial divide in our society. He longs to see hurts healed, wrongs corrected, and trust replace distrust.

    The good news is that the Bible has a lot to say about how to heal our persistent racial divides. In this book, popular Bible teacher Derwin Gray walks us through Scripture, showing us the heart of God–how God from the beginning envisioned a reconciled multiethnic family in loving community, reflecting his beauty and healing presence in the world. This message is central to the gospel itself.

    After reading this book, you won’t read the Bible the same way again–and you’ll want to walk through this eye-opening scriptural journey with your friends or small group.

    As founding pastor of Transformation Church, a multiethnic church located in the Charlotte metro area, Derwin knows firsthand the hurdles and challenges to the reconciliation that Scripture commands. That is why he carefully outlines in this book how to establish color-blessed discipleship in your own church.

    Together, we can become the change that God yearns to see in this world.

  • Faithful Antiracism : Moving Past Talk To Systemic Change

    $25.00

    It’s time to move past talk.

    It’s no longer news to most of us that our society has a deep-seated racism problem. Christians of all ethnic and economic backgrounds are tired of seeing the ugly legacy of racism play out before their eyes and feeling ill-equipped to respond. They watch as friends and family members leave the visible church over this issue, or fall prey to a gospel of white nationalism that is an affront to the cross of Christ. Racism presents itself as an undefeatable foe–a sustained scourge on the reputation of the church. In Faithful Antiracism, Chad Brennan and Christina Edmondson take confidence from the truth that Christ has overcome the world, including racism, and offer clear analysis and interventions to challenge and resist its pernicious power. Drawing on brand-new research from the landmark Race, Religion, and Justice Project led by Michael Emerson and others, this book represents the most comprehensive study on evangelicals and race since Emerson’s own book Divided by Faith (2001). It invites readers to put this data to immediate practical use, applying it to their own specific context. Compelled by our grievous social moment and by the timeless truth of Scripture, Faithful Antiracism will equip readers to move past talk and enter the fight against racism in both practical and hopeful ways.

  • Cold Civil War

    $28.00

    America’s political landscape is experiencing dangerous polarization and fragmentation, with the extremes pulling the country apart.

    Voices on the left and right clash over different worldviews, narratives, definitions of America, and what it means to be an American citizen. The levels of incivility and hostility lead some to invoke the language of a cold civil war or even a looming civil war, one that could split the country in two. Is there any way to step back from this dangerous precipice? Political philosopher Jim Belcher shows that this is not merely a binary opposition between conservativism on the right and liberalism on the left, but also between conflicting visions of order and freedom on both sides. Through his unique quadrant framework, Belcher traces the people and movements in each position, examines their underlying narratives, and articulates their respective contributions and dangers. This quadrant framework not only reveals how polarization divides us but also shows us how to move beyond the right-left stalemate. At the core of the competing visions are the seeds of a new vital center, a robust and surprising narrative that has the ability to transcend political tribalism and bring America back together again before it is too late.

  • Oneness Embraced : A Kingdom Race Theology For Reconciliation, Unity, And J

    $19.99

    Oneness is to hard achieve. Let the kingdom unity of Scripture point the way.

    Today’s world is torn apart. Tension is everywhere. Brother is pitted against brother, sister against sister, citizen against citizen, even Christian against Christian. It’s so hard to find agreement–much less real harmony–in our polarized society. Can there be a way forward?

    Tony Evans knows how elusive unity can be. As a black man who’s also a leader in white evangelicalism, he understands how hard it can be to bring these worlds together. Yet he’s convinced that the gospel provides a way for Christians to find oneness despite the things that divide us. In the Word of God, we find a kingdom-based approach to matters of history, culture, the church, and social justice. In this book, you’ll get:

    *A Biblical Look at Oneness
    *A Historical View of the Black Church
    *A Kingdom Vision for Societal Impact

    Although oneness is hard to achieve, the Christian must never stop striving. It’s a kingdom imperative. As Tony reminds us, “Glorifying God is our ultimate goal. Oneness exists to enable us to reach our goal.”

  • Silencing Of The Lambs

    $22.99

    How long will the church’s voice be drowned out by the roar of the enemy?

    After reading this book, you will understand the critical issues threatening the spread of the gospel in America, and how you can play a part and no longer be a “silent lamb” drowned out by the voices of secularism, liberalism, and pagan thinking in America.

    If you are a conservative living in America today, there is a target on your back. If you are a Christian conservative, that target is even bigger. If you are a Christian conservative who refuses to bow down to the spirit of the age, the spirit of political correctness, that target is so big that you are a marked man or woman. A person like that–like you!–must be silenced.

    So says today’s cultural elite, who are making it increasingly difficult for Christians to stand up and live out their faith. In The Silencing of the Lambs, Dr. Michael L. Brown lays out what is happening in the world around us–from the assault on children in schools and on college campuses to the unprecedented censorship of Christians and conservatives through Big Tech. He then maps out strategies for how we can turn the pitfalls into platforms and find courage in the midst of opposition.

    The Word of God cannot be bound. The church cannot be cancelled. This book sounds the alarm, alerting Christians to the increasing censorship, opposition, and even persecution believers are facing today, and calls them to remove the muzzle, take their place as the church in this nation, and turn the tide.

  • How We Love Matters

    $27.00

    This powerful book reimagines discipleship by begging us to acknowledge that racism exists in the Church–and offers the hopeful message that we can disciple it out.

    It is not an accident that racism is alive and well in the American church. Racism has, in fact, been taught within the church for so long most of us don’t even recognize it anymore. Pastor Albert Tate guides all of us in acknowledging the racism that keeps us from loving each other the way God intends and encourages siblings in Christ to sit together in racial discomfort, examining the role we may play in someone’s else’s struggle.

    How We Love Matters is a series of nine moving letters that educate, enlighten, and reimagine discipleship in a way that flips the church on its head. In these letters that include Dear Whiteness, Dear America, and Dear Church, Tate calls out racism in the world, the church, within himself and us. These letters present an anti-racist mission and vision for believers to follow that helps us to speak up at the family table and call out this evil so it will not persist in future generations.

    Tate believes that the only way to make change is by telling the truth about where we are–relationally, internally, and spiritually. How We Love Matters is an exposition of relevant Biblical truth, a clarion call for all believers to examine how they see and understand each other, and it is a way forward toward justice, reconciliation, and healing. Because, yes, it is important that we love each other, but it is even more important how we love each other.

  • Neighborliness : Love Like Jesus. Cross Dividing Lines. Transform Your Comm

    $18.99

    Do you want to love your neighbor as yourself but don’t know where to start? This practical, accessible guide to bridging the dividing lines of politics, race, and economics, both individually and as the church, will help you amplify Jesus in your community and build God’s kingdom.

    When asked what the greatest commandment is, Jesus gave a two-part answer: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” and also “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Love God. Love others.

    Jesus’ simple command to love your neighbor can feel overwhelming when your neighbor looks, lives, and votes differently than you do. Racial and economic tensions across the country have resulted in deep dividing lines that seem really intimidating to cross.

    Docusen breaks down these lines in approachable chapters, including topics like these:

    *how to actively seek out people you can benefit and encourage,

    *what it means to find a diverse and supportive community that fulfills needs,

    *examples of real-life experiences, including highlights and missteps of Docusen’s ongoing journey, and

    *how churches can teach on difficult topics with grace and truth.

    Neighborliness is a practical guide to bridging those dividing lines and learning to recognize and amplify the beauty of God in our communities. Backed by David’s speaking and training through the Neighborliness Center, this book will help individuals and churches reach out to their neighbors, love them through Christ, and build God’s kingdom.

  • God Vs Government

    $17.99

    “Welcome to our peaceful protest.”

    In the spring of 2020, churches across North America were forced to close their doors in an effort to protect citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this time of mounting fear and hostility, Christians were forced to grapple with how God wanted them to respond to these well-intentioned yet harmful mandates. After all, didn’t the closure of churches pose a serious threat when people were in need of spiritual direction more than ever?

    God vs. Government tells the story of two churches’ bold decisions to reopen even though official mandates asked them to remain closed. Convicted by the call in Hebrews 10:25 for churches to assemble together, pastors John MacArthur and James Coates led their congregations to return to in-person meetings-and in the process, found hostile governing authorities taking action against them.

    How can we as Christians know how best to respond when the state encroaches upon the church? God vs. Government looks to the Bible for answers about remaining faithful to our heavenly Father’s commands even when society tells us to do otherwise. You’ll be encouraged by this call to live with discernment and hope, trusting God to do what only He can do no matter what the circumstances.

  • Strange New World

    $17.99

    From Philosophy to Technology, Tracing the Origin of Identity Politics

    How did the world arrive at its current, disorienting state of identity politics, and how should the church respond? Historian Carl R. Trueman shows how influences ranging from traditional institutions to technology and pornography moved modern culture toward an era of “expressive individualism.” Investigating philosophies from the Romantics, Nietzsche, Marx, Wilde, Freud, and the New Left, he outlines the history of Western thought to the distinctly sexual direction of present-day identity politics, providing readers with a clearer understanding of the modern implications of these ideas on religion, free speech, and issues related to personal identity. For fans of Trueman’s The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, this new book offers a more concise presentation and application of some of the most critical topics of our day.

  • Fortune : How Race Broke My Family And The World–and How To Repair It All

    $24.99

    Drawing on her lifelong journey to know her family’s history, leading Christian activist Lisa Sharon Harper recovers the beauty of her heritage, exposes the brokenness that race has wrought in America, and casts a vision for collective repair.

    Harper has spent three decades researching ten generations of her family history through DNA research, oral histories, interviews, and genealogy. Fortune, the name of Harper’s first nonindigenous ancestor born on American soil, bore the brunt of the nation’s first race, gender, and citizenship laws. As Harper traces her family’s story through succeeding generations, she shows how American ideas, customs, and laws robbed her ancestors–and the ancestors of so many others–of their humanity and flourishing.

    Fortune helps readers understand how America was built upon systems and structures in ways that blessed some and cursed others, allowing Americans of European descent to benefit from the colonization, genocide, enslavement, rape, and exploitation of people of color. As Harper lights a path through national and religious history, she clarifies exactly how and when the world broke and shows the way to redemption for us all. The book culminates with a vision of truth telling, reparation, and forgiveness that leads to beloved community. It includes a foreword by Otis Moss III, illustrations, and a glossy eight-page black and white insert featuring photos of Harper’s family.

  • Called To Reconciliation

    $21.99

    Nationally recognized speaker and church leader Jonathan Augustine demonstrates that the church is called and equipped to model reconciliation, justice, diversity, and inclusion.

    This book develops three uses of the term “reconciliation”: salvific, social, and civil. Augustine examines the intersection of the salvific and social forms of reconciliation through an engagement with Paul’s letters and uses the black church as an exemplar to connect the concept of salvation to social and political movements that seek justice for those marginalized by racism, class structures, and unjust legal systems. He then traces the reaction to racial progress in the form of white backlash as he explores the fate of civil reconciliation from the civil rights era to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

    This book argues that the church’s work in reconciliation can serve as a model for society at large and that secular diversity and inclusion practices can benefit the church. It offers a prophetic call to pastors, church leaders, and students to recover reconciliation as the heart of the church’s message to a divided world. Foreword by William H. Willimon and afterword by Michael B. Curry.

  • Uncancelled : Finding Meaning And Peace In A Culture Of Accusations, Shame,

    $26.99

    New York Times bestselling author Phil Robertson delivers a blueprint for standing up for the truth of Jesus Christ in a culture that has forgotten how to have respectful conversation and often suppresses conservative opinions and biblical values.

    After Phil Robertson quoted Scripture in an interview with a national magazine, his hit show on A&E, Duck Dynasty, was put on hiatus. It was then that Robertson knew he had been a target of Cancel Culture. Since then, he has spoken out against widespread public shaming, strategic campaigns to get folks fired, and other tactics that have wreaked havoc in our society. While our country is so deeply divided and so many people are bent on condemning others, Robertson calls for us to carry out the uniting message of Jesus Christ.

    In Uncancelled, Robertson uncovers the motivations and faulty thinking behind our human desire to cancel other people, including our sinful desire to “play God.” He reminds readers that the goal is not to win the public relations war, or to convince the masses to love (or even like) us, but to win the war for our own integrity by refusing to bow down to the god of political correctness. Instead, it’s time to trade cancelling and retaliation for the love and forgiveness that God continually offers. When we recognize who the real opposition is–the Evil One–and embrace that Jesus Christ already paid an enormous debt to cancel our sins, we will find a path to redemption, a way to forgiveness, and a means for godly connection.

  • Terms Of Service

    $17.99

    Do we use social media, or are we being used by it?

    Social media is brilliant and obscene. It sharpens the mind and dulls it. It brings nations together and tears them apart. It perpetuates, reveals, and repairs injustice. It is an untamed beast upon which we can only hope to ride, but never quite corral.

    What is it doing to us?

    In Terms of Service, Chris Martin brings readers his years of expertise and experience from building online brands, coaching authors and speakers about social media use, and thinking theologically about the effects of social media. As you read this book, you will:

    *Learn how social media has come to dominate the role the internet plays in your life
    *Learn how the “social internet” affects you in ways you may not realize

  • What Are Christians For

    $22.00

    What should a Christian politics look like in our day?

    Politics ought to be defined by fidelity to the common good of all the members of society. But our modern Western politics are defined by a determination to bend the natural world and human life to its own political and economic ends. This wholesale rejection of the natural order is behind the dominant revolutions in our history, and defines our experience in Western society today–our racialized hierarchy, modern industry, and the sexual revolution. In What Are Christians For?, Jake Meador lays out a proposal for a Christian politics rooted in the givenness and goodness of the created world. He is uninterested in the cultural wars that have so often characterized American Christianity. Instead, he casts a vision for an ordered society that rejects the late modern revolution at every turn, and is rooted instead in the natural law tradition and in the great Protestant confessions. Here is a politics that is anti-racist, anti-capitalist, and profoundly pro-life. A truly Christian political witness, Meador argues, must attend closely to the natural world and renounce the metallic fantasies that have poisoned common life in America life for too long.

  • Recovering Our Sanity

    $24.99

    Fear may not be what you think it is. Michael Horton guides readers in diagnosing the misplaced fears we have, showing how only the fear of God can conquer the false gods that we often take too seriously as if they had the last word over our lives.

    With 24-hour news cycles and constant immersion in a world of screens and social media, we are bombarded by news reports about layoffs, the dangers of climate change, and threats to our health. Exploited by politicians who crave our alliance, fear is used to breed hatred and further divide us from one another.

    In Recovering Our Sanity, author Michael Horton argues that we need to resist the pull of our fear-driven culture. He mines the riches of Scripture and theology to help us better understand what fear is and how a good fear–the fear of God–drives out the bad fears that often rule our lives. A proper fear of God enables us to overcome the unhealthy, uncertain, and unknown fears that drive the disintegration of our society, our families, and our own lives.

    The fear of God, running from Genesis to Revelation, must once again fill the horizon of our thoughts and imaginations. As Proverbs reminds us: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. A right fear of the One who matters most leads to a lasting trust that bears a harvest of blessings for ourselves and for others.

  • God Technology And The Christian Life

    $21.99

    What Does God Think about Technology?

    Many Christians remain perplexed about modern technology. New iPhones and social media platforms, self-driving cars, and genetic engineering all prove that human innovation is not slowing down for anyone. But as technologies multiply and life in this age becomes more complex, the questions become more stark: What does God think of human technology? Is he threatened by all its power? Is he trying to dismantle Silicon Valley?

    In his latest book, journalist Tony Reinke addresses these and other hard questions head-on from the Bible. By turning to 9 key passages and engaging with several theologians and thinkers, Reinke seeks to dismantle 12 common myths Christians often hold about technology, helping them understand the story of where human innovation came from and to embrace the church’s essential role in it.

  • Kingdom Race Theology

    $11.99

    The 2020 murder of George Floyd ignited a racial firestorm throughout America, provoking lament and grief over a long history of tragedy. The widespread protests gave way to a heated discussion about terms such as systemic racism, white privilege, and Critical Race Theory, all framed by the slogan “black lives matter.” The beginnings of a helpful dialogue on diversity became a heated battle, one that quickly spread to the church.

    Drawing on forty years of ministry experience, Tony Evans writes with a fearless and prophetic voice, probing to the heart of the issue and pointing to God’s Word as the solution. Kingdom Race Theology helps people and churches commit to restitution, reconciliation, and responsibility. His penetrating and practical ideas will help pastors and church leaders sort through the conflicting theories, finding sensible solutions in the form of individual and collective action plans. Christians can work together across racial lines to repair the damage done by a long history of racial injustice.

  • Talking About Race

    $18.99

    Conversations about racism are as important as they are hard for American Christians.

    Yet the conversation often gets so ugly, even among the faithful who claim unity in Jesus. Why is that the case? Why does it matter? Can things get better, or are we permanently divided?

    In this honest and hopeful book, pastor Isaac Adams doesn’t just show you how to have the race conversation, he begins it for you. By offering a fictional, racially charged tragedy in order to understand varying perspectives and responses, he examines what is at stake if we ignore this conversation, and why there’s just as much at stake in how we have that discussion, especially across color lines–that is, with people of another ethnicity. This unique approach offers insight into how to listen to one another well and seek unity in Christ. Looking to God’s Word, Christians can find wisdom to speak gracefully and truthfully about racism for the glory of God, the good of their neighbors, and the building up of the church.

    Some feel that the time for talking is over, and that we’ve heard all this before. But given how polarized American society is becoming–its churches not exempt–fresh attention on the dysfunctional communication between ethnicities is more than warranted. Adams offers an invitation to faithfully combat the racism so many of us say we hate and maintain the unity so many of us say we want. Together we can learn to speak in such a way that we show a divided world a different world.

    Talking About Race points to the starting line, not the finish line, when it comes to following Jesus amid race relations. It’s high time to begin running.

  • Heart Of Racial Justice

    $18.00

    Racial and ethnic hostility is one of the most pervasive problems the church faces.

    It hinders our effectiveness as one body of believers. It damages our witness. Why won’t this problem just go away? Because it is a spiritual battle. What should our response be in a world torn apart by prejudice, hatred, and fear? We must employ spiritual weapons–prayer, repentance, forgiveness. In this book Brenda Salter McNeil and Rick Richardson reveal a model of racial reconciliation, social justice, and spiritual healing that creates both individual and community transformation. Read this book if you want to learn how to:

    *use your faith as a force for change, not as a smoke screen for self-protection
    *embrace your true self and renounce false racial identities
    *receive and extend forgiveness as an act of racial reconciliation
    *experience personal transformation through the healing of painful racial memories
    *engage in social action by developing ongoing crosscultural partnerships

    This classic is now part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press. It includes a list of definitions and a discussion and activity guide for groups. A new companion Bible study is also available.

    A recent Pew Research study discovered that 6 out of 10 adults in America believe racial tension is a major problem in this country–and one that is only growing worse. Today, people across the nation are dealing with tensions between blacks and whites, and often this tension breaks out into violence. People are talking about the issue; but sadly, the church has been reluctant to engage in the discussion.

    In God and Race, pastors Wayne Francis and John Siebling seek to provide a non-threatening means for pastors, church leaders, and churchgoers to start to dialogue about this important issue. Wayne Francis, lead pastor of The Life Church in New York, speaks to the “Black Fist” part, showing how the racism that blacks have faced have led to many solidarity movements that have served to increase racial tensions in our country. John Siebling, lead pastor of The Life Church in Memphis, Tennessee, speaks to the “White Knuckles” part, showing how many whites today are “white-knuckling” it to try and hold on to old (and wrong) ways of thinking . . . or are just tensing up when approached with the issue and hoping that it will just go away.

    In this study, Wayne and John show how neither black fists or white knuckles are the answer to the problem, but that what is needed are open hands, open hearts, and open minds. They do this by discussing seven key statements that they believe the church needs to acknowledge today:

    1. Racism is a problem
    2. The gospel is the solution
    3. It’s more than just a spiritual problem
    4. It’s complicated
    5. White people must understand and acknowledge the sin of slavery and mistreatment of black people
    6. Black people in turn have to forgive white people of previous and present injustices, while also not harboring hatred and racism toward white people
    7. Unless we make a solid intentional choice to connect, understand, reach, and love one another, we will remain divided

    In the Gospels, we see how the crowds came to Jesus because he talked about real issues and was not afraid to engage in the important issues of his day. In the church of today, we need to be doing the same, for it is only by recognizing, addressing, and openly dialoguing about the racial tension in America that we can together begin to work toward real solutions.

  • Still Time To Care

    $25.99

    At the start of the gay rights movement in 1969, evangelicalism’s leading voices cast a vision for gay people who turn to Jesus. It was C.S. Lewis, Billy Graham, Francis Schaeffer and John Stott who were among the most respected leaders within theologically orthodox Protestantism. We see with them a positive pastoral approach toward gay people, an approach that viewed homosexuality as a fallen condition experienced by some Christians who needed care more than cure.

    With the birth and rise of the ex-gay movement, the focus shifted from care to cure. As a result, there are an estimated 700,000 people alive today who underwent conversion therapy in the United States alone. Many of these patients were treated by faith-based, testimony-driven parachurch ministries centered on the ex-gay script. Despite the best of intentions, the movement ended with very troubling results. Yet the ex-gay movement died not because it had the wrong sex ethic. It died because it was founded on a practice that diminished the beauty of the gospel.

    Yet even after the closure of the ex-gay umbrella organization Exodus International in 2013, the ex-gay script continues to walk about as the undead among us, pressuring people like me to say, “I used to be gay, but I’m not gay anymore. Now I’m just same-sex attracted.”

    For orthodox Christians, the way forward is a path back to where we were forty years ago. It is time again to focus with our Neo-Evangelical fathers on care–not cure–for our non-straight sisters and brothers who are living lives of costly obedience to Jesus.

    With warmth and humor as well as original research, Still Time to Care will chart the path forward for our churches and ministries in providing care. It will provide guidance for the gay person who hears the gospel and finds themselves smitten by the life-giving call of Jesus. Woven throughout the book will be Richard Lovelace’s 1978 call for a “double repentance” in which gay Christians repent of their homosexual sins and the church repents of its homophobia–putting on display for all the power of the gospel.

  • Becoming Brave : Finding The Courage To Pursue Racial Justice Now

    $17.99

    Foreword INDIES 2020 Book of the Year Award (BRONZE Winner for Religion)

    Reconciliation is not true reconciliation without justice! Brenda Salter McNeil has come to this conviction as she has led the church in pursuing reconciliation efforts over the past three decades. McNeil calls the church to repair the old reconciliation paradigm by moving beyond individual racism to address systemic injustice, both historical and present. It’s time for the church to go beyond individual reconciliation and “heart change” and to boldly mature in its response to racial division.Looking through the lens of the biblical narrative of Esther, McNeil challenges Christian reconcilers to recognize the particular pain in our world so they can work together to repair what is broken while maintaining a deep hope in God’s ongoing work for justice. This book provides education and prophetic inspiration for every person who wants to take reconciliation seriously.

    Becoming Brave offers a distinctly Christian framework for addressing systemic injustice. It challenges Christians to be everyday activists who become brave enough to break the silence and work with others to dismantle systems of injustice and inequality.

  • Hope For This Present Crisis

    $34.99

    Our culture has lost its mind. Now, we are waging a bigger fight–a war for our soul.

    Is it possible our world has gone mad? We are under siege and the war is not from without; it is from within. The collapse of the Roman Empire occurred in a single generation and was not so much the result of invasions by their enemies but the result of moral decay and internal corruption. Similar patterns are emerging in America. We neglected or abandoned our traditional institutions long ago, but now it’s time to take them back.

    Today, forces are at work to strip the principles and precepts of faith from public venues or minimize their significance. Many progressive leaders are convinced that when Christianity disintegrates it will create peace on earth. But the loss of our heritage will merely create a spiritual vacuum that will be filled with folly, crammed with chaos, or invaded by Islam. The reality is: Western civilization will become so decadent and reckless that America will collapse like a house of cards.

    In Hope for This Present Crisis, Dr. Youssef provides a diagnosis of the insanity of the current culture and a seven-step prescription for restoring sanity to a world gone mad. Here’s the seven-step path to restoring a world gone mad:

    *Remember the Truth – Stand firm on the truth of the gospel.
    *Restore the Soul – Seek God’s approval- not the approval of other people.
    *Revitalize theFamily – Guard your children from the horrors of the Internet.
    *Reestablish the Classroom – Support conscientious, caring public school teachers.
    *Respect our Freedoms – Know your rights.
    *Reform our Society – Morally and spiritually purify yourself.
    *Revive the Church – Demonstrate the forgiving love of Jesus at all times.

    This book will teach you how to stand up to attacks on your faith, and defend Christianity as a meaningful contribution to society.

  • Restless Devices : Recovering Personhood, Presence, And Place In The Digita

    $24.00

    We’re being formed by our devices.

    Today’s digital technologies are designed to captivate our attention and encroach on our boundaries, shaping how we relate to time and space, to ourselves and others, even to God. Our natural longing for relationship makes us vulnerable to the industrializing effects of social media. While we enjoy the benefits of digital tech, many of us feel troubled with its power and exhausted by its demands for permanent connectivity. Yet even as we grow disenchanted, attempting to resist the digital powers that be might seem like a losing battle. Sociologist Felicia Wu Song has spent years considering the personal and collective dynamics of digital ecosystems. She combines psychological, neurological, and sociological insights with theological reflection to explore two major questions:

    *What kind of people are we becoming with personal technologies in hand?
    *And who do we really want to be?

    Song unpacks the soft tyranny of the digital age, including the values embedded in our apps and the economic systems that drive our habits. She then explores pathways of meaningful resistance that can be found in Christian tradition–especially counter-narratives about human worth, embodiment, relationality, and time–and offers practical experiments for individual and communal change. In our current digital ecologies, small behavioral shifts are not enough to give us freedom. We need a sober and motivating vision of our prospects to help us imagine what kind of life we hope to live–and how we can get there.

  • Saving Grace : Speak Your Truth, Stay Centered, And Learn To Coexist With P

    $27.00

    The CNN senior political analyst and USA Today columnist offers a path to navigating the toxic division in our culture without compromising our convictions and emotional well-being, based on her experience as a journalist during the Trump era, interviews with experts, and research on what leads people to actually change their minds.

    For years, Kirsten Powers has been center stage for many of our nation’s most searing political and cultural battles as a columnist, TV analyst, and one-time participant in the thunderdome of Twitter. On a good day, there will be civil disagreement. On a bad day, it’s all-out trench warfare–nothing but a cycle of outrage and self-righteousness. More and more, Powers finds herself wondering, along with countless Americans: How are we to cope with this non-stop madness?

    In Saving Grace, Powers writes with wit and insight about our country’s poisonous political discourse, chronicling the efforts she’s made to stay grounded and preserve her sanity in a post-truth era that has driven many of us to the edge. She draws on lessons offered by faith leaders, therapists, theologians, social scientists, and activists working for change today. She dismantles the widespread misconception that grace means being nice, letting people get away with harmful behavior, or choosing neutrality in the name of peace. Grace, she argues, is anything but an act of surrender; instead, it is a kinetic and transformative force.

    Saving Grace offers a template for a different kind of America, one where we can engage with people who hold opposing views without sacrificing our values or our passionate beliefs in the causes we care about. It’s a culture that embraces repentance and repair, a process through which those who have caused harm can take responsibility and work toward righting the wrongs in which they have participated. It’s a place where we’re empowered to see the possibility in other people, even people who are driving us nuts.

    Provocative, original, and filled with deep wisdom, Saving Grace is an essential read for anyone engaged in the struggle to live compassionately in an era of relentless demonization and division.

  • Making Faith Magnetic

    $16.99

    As followers of Jesus, we know that the good news is deeply attractive. But we often fear that to those on the outside, it comes across as irrelevant or even repellent. Sometimes the Christian worldview feels so out of step with everything else going on that we don’t know how to share our faith.

    However, author Daniel Strange wants to show you that the connections are there–in fact, the longings that our culture cannot help but express are the very ones that Jesus fulfils.

    Building on the work of theologian J.H. Bavinck, Dan reveals five recurring themes that our culture can’t stop talking about, or, as he puts it, the “five permanent ‘itches’ that in our work, rest, and play, we have to vigorously scratch.” From TV to books to social media, these are the questions we can’t stop asking and the tensions we can’t stop wrestling with–and Jesus speaks powerfully into each one.

    This book will help you to spot these connections in our culture, excite you about how Jesus makes sense of humankind’s deepest questions and longings, and equip you to speak of him to others in a way that is truly magnetic.

  • You Are Not Your Own

    $22.00

    “You are your own, and you belong to yourself.”

    This is the fundamental assumption of modern life. And if we are our own, then it’s up to us to forge our own identities and to make our lives significant. But while that may sound empowering, it turns out to be a crushing responsibility–one that never actually delivers on its promise of a free and fulfilled life, but instead leaves us burned out, depressed, anxious, and alone. This phenomenon is mapped out onto the very structures of our society, and helps explain our society’s underlying disorder. But the Christian gospel offers a strikingly different vision. As the Heidelberg Catechism puts it, “I am not my own, but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death, to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.” In You Are Not Your Own, Alan Noble explores how this simple truth reframes the way we understand ourselves, our families, our society, and God. Contrasting these two visions of life, he invites us past the sickness of contemporary life into a better understanding of who we are and to whom we belong.

  • Let America Live

    $24.95

    Against all odds, our fight for freedom is our responsibility, we must RISE!

    This book will expose you to the hidden realities of the media’s silencing and opposition to those against the Left’s agenda. You will have an increased confidence to stand strong for your beliefs about your health, faith, and personal life despite what is going on around you.

    When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States, Dr. Stella Immanuel started treating her patients with hydroxychloroquine and saw surprising success. To date, she says she has treated more than seven thousand COVID patients with the drug, and only eight have passed away. The rest recovered.

    Yet Dr. Immanuel has been ripped in the media and even by the medical community, who say the drug not only doesn’t work but is harmful–the complete opposite of her experience. Her videos and accounts have been blocked on social media. The backlash has been so intense that she began to wonder if more sinister forces weren’t behind the attacks against her and other doctors who advocate using hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID.

    In Let America Live, Dr. Immanuel shares her story–from unassuming Houston pediatrician to one of the Left’s favorite punching bags. A minister as well as a physician, Dr. Immanuel also exposes the dark spiritual agenda she believes is behind the medical community’s opposition to hydroxychloroquine as a COVID treatment and the vaccination push. Despite intense opposition, Dr. Immanuel refuses to be silenced. She issues a clarion call to believers and all who love liberty to stand boldly against the spiritual and natural forces that are threatening Americans’ health and the future of the nation.

  • Focus On The Future

    $24.99

    FOREWORD BY JAMES DOBSON

    The culture won’t change your faith. But it will challenge it.

    This book will equip you to protect your family, your society, and your convictions in a world that increasingly challenges your Christian faith.

    Tim Clinton an eminent American counselor and associate of the revered James Dobson, believes this moment in American history is a reprieve. It is a moment to take stock. It is a moment to prepare. It is a moment to focus on the future.

    We must know the season we are in and prepare to maximize our opportunities as we engage in the cultural battles that are sure to befall us. In his stirring new book, Focus on the Future, Clinton provides a learned overview of our embattled liberties, the intents of our Founding Fathers, and the heroic efforts of individuals such as Dobson to preserve those intentions. Clinton arms readers for the days ahead by tackling topics such as the following:
    *The new war on the American family and how we can change America one family at a time
    *The power of righteous masculinity and the forces determined to destroy it
    *The battle against abortion
    *How neuroscience is changing our approach to healing the traumatized, our veterans, and our society as a whole

    Clinton is not just a wise counselor. He is also a warrior summoning other warriors to their great cause. He challenges readers by chronicling the global persecution of the Christian faith and by telling believers how they can make a difference. Focus on the Future is both a culmination of decades of learning and activism as well as a cutting-edge response to today’s events.

    The future is bright, victories are destined, and great things await the faithful who prepare. We can indeed have vital families in a thriving nation and see righteousness pervade our land.

  • Heavy Burdens : Seven Ways LGBTQ Christians Experience Harm In The Church

    $19.99

    Religious faith reduces the risk of suicide for virtually every American demographic except one: LGBTQ people. Generations of LGBTQ people have felt alienated or condemned by the church. It’s past time that Christians confronted the ongoing and devastating effects of this legacy.

    Many LGBTQ people face overwhelming challenges in navigating faith, gender, and sexuality. Christian communities that uphold the traditional sexual ethic often unwittingly make the path more difficult through unexamined attitudes and practices. Drawing on her sociological training and her leadership in the Side B/Revoice conversation, Bridget Eileen Rivera, who founded the popular website Meditations of a Traveling Nun, speaks to the pain of LGBTQ Christians and helps churches develop a better pastoral approach.

    Rivera calls to mind Jesus’s woe to religious leaders: “They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them” (Matt. 23:4). Heavy Burdens provides an honest account of seven ways LGBTQ people experience discrimination in the church, helping Christians grapple with hard realities and empowering churches across the theological spectrum to navigate better paths forward.

    For fifty years the abortion debate has remained stagnant, trapped in sterile categories and familiar rhetoric. Each side thinks they know what the other has to say, so they don’t listen. Consequently, they have become deaf to each other’s pleas.

    Danielle D’Souza Gill, in a pathbreaking new book, blows the lid off the abortion debate, which is radically different than it was when the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling of Roe v. Wade in 1973. Technology has transformed the landscape and allowed people to see development in the womb. Ultrasound has rendered many old assumptions about abortion obsolete. The Democratic Left has become radicalized on abortion. It is no longer a necessary evil, but a positive good. Consequently, the Left has legitimized a form of mass killing in this country that dwarfs the deaths caused by cancer, smoking, homicide, terrorism, and war. Writing with freshness, intelligence, and insight, Danielle explores the contours of the debate, taking into account new ideas, new technology, and new laws and putting forth a new vision for a life-affirming society. In Socratic style, Danielle builds her case in response to the strongest contentions of the pro-choice camp. She engages their most powerful arguments head-on, carefully examines them, and then dismantles them. The result is a pro-life argument so persuasive that it will reach into the heart of the most hardened opponent. While it is a heartbreaking book, it is in the end inspiring. No matter what you believe about abortion, this book will educate, astonish, and deeply move you. It may move you to a position different from what you now hold. If you read one book about abortion, make it this one, The Choice: The Abortion Divide in America.

    $14.99

    After your faith has fractured, let what takes its place be the real thing . . . at last.

    Somewhere along the way, the Christianity you knew began to crumble. You began to suspect your faith was misplaced. Disillusionment set in. Churches hurt you. Their people failed you.

    *Is this the normal Christian life?
    *Why is it so hard for Christians to love?

    Let Fractured Faith help you find your way back to God. You just might discover that the real God has been waiting for you all along.

  • Over It : Forgetting Who You’re Expected To Be And Becoming Who You Already

    $26.00

    We don’t always talk about the expectations we feel and the pressure to exceed them, but maybe we should… Unspoken expectations surround us. In culture, in the church, and in general. If they weren’t pushed on you as a child, you’re now scrolling through them as an adult. You should look like this, talk like that, dress like them. Own a house that looks like Joanna Gaines just decorated. Be as fit as your favorite Instagram mom, who somehow works out on her Peloton while balancing a newborn on one hip and her side hustle on the other. And, by the way, are you really in counseling this early in your marriage? The expectations surrounding us, particularly women, are ridiculous. What if we didn’t try to fulfill them and instead started believing the promises Jesus fulfilled? What if we didn’t cave to the expectation to look and behave how people want us to, and started looking at ourselves the way God sees us? What if we didn’t do everything the way we’ve always been told it has to be done, and started walking in bold, audacious faith? In Over It, Kelsey Taylor Grimm doesn’t show her best and hide the rest. Through the transparent telling of her own story, from an extensive, sexually and emotionally abusive relationship, to her ascension in the music industry, she invites you into her living room to talk through the ridiculous expectations of who you’re supposed to be, and encourages the reader to embrace the beautiful realities of who you already are.

  • Death Of Porn

    $16.99

    How to Fight Pornography through Honest Community

    Pastor Ray Ortlund calls pornography the “wallpaper of the world”-so widespread that it can’t be avoided. No man is free from exposure to it. So how can every man fight to get his dignity back? How can men band together to stop playing defense and start playing offense against the industry creating porn?

    The Death of Porn is a series of personal letters to young men, calling an entire generation to believe in their God-given royalty and to push back against the degrading porn industry. As men walk together in honesty and prayer, they can diminish the industry, pushing it out to the margins of culture, stigmatizing its image, choking its demand, calling its bluff, and reducing its income. Men standing together to lead the movement as champions of nobility can build a new world where all people are dignified as never before.
