  • Undistracted Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    Disappointments are a fact of life. Setbacks will happen to us all at some point. It is easy to allow such events to steal our joy and distract us from our true purpose. But we don’t have to fall into that trap. We can choose to keep our focus on Christ even in turmoil and be the kind of people who get busy moving in another direction.

    In this five-session video study, bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to be joyful in every situation. As he notes, the hard truth is that most of us live our lives consumed by worries and fears about things over which we have no control. We struggle to know how we should interact with family or friends. We fret about our finances and our faith. We question our college major and career choice. Add to this that we’re following a God we can’t see, for a lifetime we can’t measure, to a heaven we can’t comprehend, because of grace we didn’t earn.

    We’re all trying to figure it out as we go. This leaves more offramps than onramps, more chances for confusion than certainty and more ambiguity than clarity. All of this vagueness plays right into the hands of darkness. The enemy doesn’t seek to destroy us with an obvious all-out assault. No, he wants to distract us, keep us locked up in worries, and prevent us from experiencing those things that will give us true joy in life.

    This is the goal of this study–to provide a roadmap to defeat discouragement and regain joy in life by becoming captivated by something better. Joy will provide practical steps to help participants make that journey.

  • Live No Lies Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    The late 1930s were a tumultuous time in America. The country was on the verge of war with Germany. The economy was recovering from the Great Depression. Fear and anxiety were rampant. Enter Orson Welles, director of The Mercury Theatre on the Air, a new radio program. The show was the darling of critics but had failed to garner a large audience. Welles had no commercial sponsor, and he knew he had to do something drastic. So he bought the rights to H. G. Wells’s novel The War of the Worlds and had his screenwriter simplify it. He updated the setting from Victorian England to current-day New Jersey.

    Most Americans weren’t listening to Welles’s show when it started. They were listening to the more popular The Chase and Sanborn Hour. That week’s episode ended at 8:15 pm. So, around 8:16, thousands of people turned the dial and were shocked by realistic-sounding news alerts. Due to the unrest in Europe, people were used to having their radio shows interrupted with breaking news stories . . . all bad. What people heard that night were reports of aliens invading the Eastern Seaboard, complete with an emergency broadcast from an actor whose voice mimicked President Roosevelt’s with near-perfect accuracy.

    The result was pandemonium in the streets. Urbanites fled in terror. People took refuge in churches. Pregnant women went into labor early. People committed suicide. Looting broke out in the streets. It being America, men got out their guns and made ready to make a final stand.

    The story reveals that ideas can be powerful. As the Bible reveals, this is something our enemy understands all too well. Satan, “the father of lies,” wields the weapons of deception with perfect precision, striking at when we are most vulnerable. It is for this reason that Paul and other early church leaders liked following Jesus to a war. They encouraged believers in Christ to equip the armor of spiritual warfare, take a stand, and start to fight back against the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil.

    As followers of Jesus, we still called are to fight back against deceptive ideas (the devil) that play to disordered desires (the flesh) that are normalized in a sinful society (the world). This is the purpose of this study–to unmask our enemy and to develop a strategy to fight back by living out the truth we believe.

  • Sexual Reformation Video Study (DVD)

    $59.99

    Since the Reformation, Protestants have confessed that the church is reformed and always reforming. But do we really believe this? Why, then, are we so shocked to hear that the church itself needs a sexual reformation? That the church has been fighting to uphold biblical distinction between the sexes against a culture that is rapidly and aggressively challenging this, is certainly one reason. But in trying to be faithful to the beauty of God’s design for man and woman, the church has instead latched onto a pagan, Aristotelian concept of man and woman–that woman is by nature inferior to man–which robs us of the dignity of personhood as man and woman created in the image of God.

    Much of the evangelical teaching on the sexes is based on cultural stereotypes and an unbiblical ontology of male authority and female subordination. While some try to correct this, they often flatten the meaningful distinctions in the feminine and masculine gift. We end up missing the beautiful message that our bodies, and our whole selves as men and women, tell: the story of the great joy in which Christ received his gift of his bride, the church. Having taken on flesh, he is bringing her to the holy of holies, ushering her behind the veil, and securing communion with his bridal people in sacred space. He gave himself as the ultimate Gift and he loves us to the end. We see this highlighted in the book placed right in the middle of our Bibles. The Song of Songs enfleshes our hope as it poetically sings the metanarrative of Scripture.

    In the Sexual Reformation Video Study, Aimee Byrd invites you to enter into the Song’s treasures as its lyrics reveal a typology in God’s design of man and woman, one that unfolds throughout the canon of Scripture. The meaning of man and woman extends beyond biology, nature, and culture to give us a glimpse of what is to come. Our bodies are theological. They are visible signs that tell us something about our God. This often-ignored biblical book has much to teach us about Christ, his church, man, and woman. It teaches us the whole point of it all. And what it teaches us is not a list of roles and hierarchy, but a love song. We are ripe for a sexual reformation in the church, and recovering a good theological anthropology is imperative to it. We desperately need to peel away the Aristotelian mindset of man and woman that still pervades much of the teaching on gender and sexuality in the church today.?The Holy Spirit is speaking to us in his Wor

  • Rembrandt Is In The Wind Video Study (DVD)

    $59.99

  • Church Plantology Video Study (DVD)

    $59.99

    The Apostle Paul was a veteran church planter who “laid a foundation like a wise and master builder” and there is much we can learn from his example. Paul indicated that there were basic skills and experiences required to successfully plant a church. In Church Plantology Video Study, veteran church planter Peyton Jones examines the wide variety of church planting methods and ideologies in contemporary pastoral practice and outlines a biblical model based on the New Testament.

    During his time in prison, Paul spent much of his time writing to Titus, Timothy, and others who’d served alongside him in the trenches to complete their training as church plantings. We can continue to apply these time-tested, proven methods, following the pioneering example of the early church.

    Today, the casualty rate in is high. What if we could reduce the odds of failing? Church Plantology Video Study is a robust guide to church planting that will help provide the foundation necessary to survive beyond the initial first years and thrive.

  • Last Supper On The Moon Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    In the summer of 1969, Buzz Aldrin had a mission. His goal was to fly 240 million miles from earth and, along with fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong, be the first to walk on the moon. But moments before that historic step, Aldrin poured a specially prepared drink into a cup and partook of a sacred celebration that had first occurred two thousand years before.

    The lunar Last Supper was full of meaning, just as it had been when Jesus himself took of the elements and acknowledged his calling and purpose. But the significance didn’t end there. Today, as we remember the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, followed by his resurrection, we are reminded that what seemed to be an end became the genesis of everything–including the rescue and restoration of anyone who calls on Jesus’ name.

    In this six-session study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author and pastor Levi Lusko journeys back in time and forward in hope, using the 1969 lunar mission as an analogy of the metamorphosis that was unleashed by the man from Galilee. Along the way, he uncovers the remarkable “seven statements” that Jesus made from the cross–words that provide us everything we need in the chaos of our world to conquer judgment, persecution, anxiety, and pain.

  • Mosaic Of Atonement Video Lectures (DVD)

    $139.99

    The Mosaic of Atonement Video Lectures offers a fresh and integrated approach to historic models of atonement.

    Modern treatments of the atonement have tended toward two extremes by either singling out one model as most important, or presenting multiple images with no order of arrangement. This video series takes a different approach, exploring the four pieces of atonement through the image of a Christ-shaped mosaic:

    1. The Feet: Recapitulation
    2. The Heart: Penal Substitution
    3. The Head: Christus Victor
    4. The Hands: Moral Influence

    Unlike a photograph, a mosaic allows each piece to retain its recognizable particularity, while also integrating them in the service of a single larger image. In the great mosaics of age-old Christian churches, the goal is not to construct the image, as in a puzzle, but to appreciate it.

    So too with this mosaic of atonement doctrine. While no one model is set above or against the others, The Mosaic of Atonement Video Lectures notes particular ways in which the pieces–the feet, heart, head, and hands–mutually support one another to form a more holistic vision of Christ’s work.

  • Lords Prayer : The Meaning And Power Of The Prayer Jesus Taught (DVD)

    $39.99

    Most Christians know the Lord’s Prayer by heart. We pray it often, at different times and in different settings. We remember it as the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples. But do we really understand and appreciate the meaning and power of its words, what we ask of God each time we pray it?

    When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray, Jesus gave them this prayer. He likely taught it to his followers often, not just one time. He never intended the Lord’s Prayer to be a museum piece, framed and placed on a mantel or in a display case. It was Jesus teaching God’s people, through his disciples, how to pray.In The Lord’s Prayer: The Meaning and Power of the Prayer Jesus Taught, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton guides us to really know-and really pray-the Lord’s Prayer. He explores each of its rich lines and their meaning in the Bible, illuminating what we ask of God and what we ask of ourselves through its words. And he teaches us how to use it as a pattern for our own prayer life.

    The six-session DVD features Adam Hamilton guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 10-12 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.

  • God And Race Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    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 (study guide sold separately), 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. Wayne and John have no presumption in this series that they are going to solve the issue. Rather, their goal is to have churches follow their example and start the

  • Theological Ethics Video Lectures (DVD)

    $89.99

Ross Hastings guides the church to think deeply and theologically about the moral formation of persons in our communities, about ethical inquiry and action, and about the tone and content of our engagement in the public square. Lessons present a biblical perspective and a gospel-centered framework for thinking about complex contemporary issues in ways that are life-giving and that will lead learners into greater flourishing as human persons in community.Hastings’s framework for ethics is robustly theological and Trinitarian.

Theological Ethics Video Lectures is for those who lead churches or ministries (or who someday will) and who urgently need deep theological grounding as they daily encounter ethical and moral issues where they need to provide a gracious, truthful, and gospel-directed response.

  • When Strivings Cease Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    Bestselling author, entrepreneur, and speaker Ruth Chou Simons calls women to discover how God’s profound gift of grace and favor invites them to rest from chasing approval and earning love, and instead discover the freedom of true belonging and worth that doesn’t depend on them.

    In this hustling, image-forward age of opportunity, women are more anxious than ever. Despite all the affirming memes and self-reflections that dominate social media feeds, approval and worth often seem assigned to what we do rather than who we are. And we end up constantly feeling behind, lacking, and like we’re failing-at home, at work, with friends, with God.

    Ruth Chou Simons knows something of feeling measured by achievement, performance, and the approval of others. As a Taiwanese immigrant growing up between two cultures, Ruth was always on a mission to prove her worth. Until she came to truly understand the one thing that changes everything: the extravagant, undeserved gift of grace from a merciful God.

    In this six-session Bible study (study guide sold separately), Ruth guides us all on a journey to find freedom from the never-ending quest for approval and affirmation. She shows us how to:

    *confront the ways we look to superficial means of acceptance and belonging, and find relief in realizing we can’t be so amazing that we won’t need grace

    *stop seeing God as someone we perform for and start finding delight in responding to God’s welcome

    *find relief from running the hamster wheel of relying on our own strength, our own abilities, and our own savvy-and always coming up short-by truly understanding the freedom Jesus purchased

    With personal story, biblical insights, practical applications, and original artwork by Ruth, this transformational new book helps us see the beautiful truth that God’s favor is the only currency we need, because in Christ we are enough.

  • Ephesians Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    The message of the gospel that Paul brought to Ephesus forever transformed its citizen’s lives. Out of this city-filled with idolatry and Roman temples-rose up a new community that lived to proclaim the grace, mercy, and love of a God who had sent His Son into the world to forgive their sins. But things did not always go smoothly within this new group. Ephesus was a city of great cultural diversity, which meant that the church Paul founded was also a multiethnic group. It wasn’t long before these various groups were finding it difficult to come together as one, put aside their differences, and get along. In other words, the church in Ephesus was having the same problems we face today.

    In this six-session study (study guide sold separately), Pastor Derwin Gray of Transformation Church will guide you through Paul’s letter to this group of diverse believers. You will see how Paul presented the revolutionary idea that Jesus came not only to forgive sins but also to create a unified family out of a people with differently-colored skins. Just like a multi-faceted diamond, the different “shapes” in the church actually help to reveal its beauty. It is actually the differences among believers that make them different for the better.

    The 40 Days Through the Book series has been designed to help believers more actively engage with God’s Word. Each study encourages participants to read through one book in the New Testament at least once during the course of 40 days (approximately 6 weeks of meetings). During the course, participants will be provided with (1) an understanding of the background and culture in which the book was written, (2) insights into key passages of Scripture, and (3) clear applications and takeaways from the particular book that they can apply to their lives.Designed for use with Ephesians Study Guide (sold separately).

  • Hard Good Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    The Hard Good shows why the divine road that leads to God’s perfect plan for our lives is often paved with difficulties.

    At our very core is the desire to be God’s woman or man-faithful, having fulfilled the potential God created in us. To reach that point, sometimes we have to endure hard things, things God has designed for good, to supernaturally shape us into the people he wants us to be. When we choose to accept the “hard good,” we discover our life’s purpose, and he promises to give us the joy and passion as our deepest longing is fulfilled.

    The hard good is a powerful path to growth, as you learn to:
    *accept things you wish were different
    *apologize and forgive first
    *come clean (repentance)
    *give up the now for the best
    *stay in the journey
    *cheer for someone who has what you want
    *open your heart, even when it’s been hurt
    *tell yourself no

    The Hard Good is a six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately) based in 1 Samuel. It will help you discover a practical roadmap to help you find God’s true purpose for your life-a study in becoming the person God uniquely created you to be. With counsel from Scripture, which speaks into relevant and universal issues that touch each one of us, The Hard Good inspires and motivates you to discover the growth you have long desired as you search for your purpose in God’s perfect plan.

  • Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth Video Study (DVD)

    $49.99

    God does not suggest, he commands that we do justice.

    Social justice is not optional for the Christian. All injustice affects others, so talking about justice that isn’t social is like talking about water that isn’t wet or a square with no right angles. But the Bible’s call to seek justice is not a call to superficial, kneejerk activism. We are not merely commanded to execute justice, but to “truly execute justice.” The God who commands us to seek justice is the same God who commands us to “test everything” and “hold fast to what is good.”

    Drawing from a diverse range of theologians, sociologists, artists, and activists, Thaddeus Williams builds a case that we must be discerning if we are to “truly execute justice” as Scripture commands. Not everything called “social justice” today is compatible with a biblical vision of a better world. The Bible offers hopeful and distinctive answers to deep questions of worship, community, salvation, and knowledge that ought to mark a uniquely Christian pursuit of justice.

    In the Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth Video Study, Williams confronts our religious and political tribalism and challenges readers to discover what the Bible and the example of Jesus have to teach us about justice. He presents a compelling vision of justice for all God’s image-bearers that offers hopeful answers to life’s biggest questions.

  • Alive : How The Resurrection Of Christ Changes Everything (DVD)

    $38.00

    Do Christians place their hope in a lie? Is the resurrection of Jesus simply an ancient hoax invented by the church? Many people hold that view today.

In this teaching series, Dr. Gabe Fluhrer makes a compelling case for Christ’s victory over the grave. Not only is His resurrection a historical fact, but it presents the true answer to our deepest questions and provides every Christian believer with undying hope. Standard-definition DVD.

  • So Long Normal Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    So Long, Normal is a study in Scripture that will help anyone who finds themselves paralyzed by fear in the inevitable changes of life. Though we are tempted to lean on normalcy, predictability and control for security, God calls us to something far better. Laura Story looks at the obstacles of attachment to comfort and sameness we all grip with two hands when our circumstances change. She leads the way to the starting line where we begin to view our changes of plans as opportunities for adventure, rather than pitfalls of anxiety, and together we learn to further trust our unknown future to a faithful God. In life, change is inevitable but there is a way to still thrive. When we say goodbye to normal, our joy and peace are no longer tethered to our circumstances; we can truly experience the abundant life Christ offers his children.

    This five-session study (study guide sold separately) helps us recognize that our attachments to so many varied things in our daily lives can be the exact things keeping us from experiencing the kind of life God intends, and actually defines in Scripture. So many characters in Scripture wanted to hold onto something or have assurances, but ultimately, the abundant life comes down to wanting the life God intends and being willing to go after it or step into it with excitement. The adventure begins with the first step of trust.

  • Dont Give The Enemy A Seat At Your Table Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    In this study, bestselling author and pastor Louie Giglio relates how several years ago he experiencing one of his toughest seasons as a leader. He was feeling attacked, and in a moment of weakness, he fired off an angry text to a friend. It took him five minutes to compose the message-paragraphs of woe about the one causing harm. The nine-word text back from his friend simply said, “Don’t give the enemy a seat at your table.”

    Louie relates how this simple text led him to realize that he had been allowing his adversary-the devil-into the conversation going on in his mind. He had, in fact, been giving his enemy a seat at his table. In turn, this led Louie to Psalm 23, one of the most loved texts in all of Scripture that has comforted God’s people throughout the ages.

    As group members go through this study, they will see they have the power, through Christ, to take back control of their thoughts and emotions. As they uncover the meaning behind the words of Psalm 23, they will discover that God is saying they do not have to give a place to fear, envy, or despair in their lives. Ultimately, they will walk away with practical ways to defeat the enemy’s lies and know how to experience peace and security in the midst of any situation as they learn to listen to voice of their Shepherd.

  • Whats So Amazing About Grace Video Study Updated Edition (DVD)

    $29.99

    In this six-session revised and updated video Bible study, bestselling author Philip Yancey explores the concept of grace–the one thing the world cannot duplicate and the one thing it craves above all else–and explores what it looks like in action. He also examines how Christians, as the sole dispensers, are doing at lavishing the grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy.

    As Yancey explains, true grace is shocking and scandalous, for God does not excuse sin but always treasures the sinner. God always extends his grace to individuals regardless of what they have done–for no one is unforgiveable in his eyes. Grace thus shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today’s AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus’ day.

    Yancey offers compelling and true portraits of grace’s life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks how Christians today can contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear. And he challenges each of us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, “what’s so amazing about grace.”

  • Out Of The Cave Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    Many believers today assume that God’s peace, power, and protection in their lives should prevent them from ever feeling anxious, depressed, or afraid. But what we find in the Bible is the exact opposite! In God’s Word, we are told to “fear not” at least 365 times-one for each day of the year-along with frequent reminders of God’s presence in the midst of every human emotion . . . including depression and anxiety.

    In this five-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author and pastor Chris Hodges draws on the story of Elijah to show no matter how powerful, accomplished, or successful we may be, we can all still succumb to fear, doubt, despair, and hopelessness. In 1 Kings 18, we read how Elijah (whose very name means “Yahweh is my God”) won renown for defeating the priests of Baal during the reign of King Ahab. But when the wicked Queen Jezebel sent a message vowing to take his life, the prophet fled into the wilderness and “came to a broom bush,” where he “sat down under it and prayed that he might die” (1 Kings 19:4).

    Elijah’s story reveals that even when we’re walking closely with God, we can still stumble and get lost in the wilderness of tangled emotions. But the good news is that we don’t have to stay there! Like Elijah, we can become overcomers in Christ and press on to God-inspired victory. As Out of the Cave reveals, God will provide rest for the weary, hope for the desperate, and balm for the aching soul.

  • Breakthrough : Finding Freedom In Christ – A Study In Galatians (DVD)

    $49.99

    Let go of feeling like you are not a “good enough” Christian and find freedom in Christ by studying Paul’s letter to the Galatians in Breakthrough by Barb Roose.

    Have you ever felt that being a good Christian means you’ve got to follow a bunch of rules and measure up?

    If so, you aren’t alone! In this six-week Bible study of Galatians, Barb Roose shows us that even the believers in the early church struggled to let go of rule-keeping and performance in order to embrace God’s free gift of grace.

    In his letter to the Galatians, Paul pours out his heart and faith to set them straight, addressing so many of the same questions and problems we still face today, such as… *Who has led you to believe you have to follow rules and “measure up”?
    *Why do you think you have to be perfect for God?
    *Does God only show up or love you when you “get it right”?

    If you’ve ever struggled with these questions or felt trapped by rules or religion, this study will provide a path to discover your freedom in Christ.

    Through this study women will learn to:
    *Stop trying to measure up and embrace God’s grace
    *Distinguish between lies and truth
    *Embrace God’s promise of freedom

    Components for this six-week Bible study, each available separately, include a Participant Workbook, a Leader Guide, and video sessions with six 25-minute segments (with closed captioning).

  • Sacred Pathways Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    As believers in Christ, many of us today fall into the trap of thinking we have to approach God in a certain way. This one-size-fits-all mentality typically leaves us feeling frustrated and distant from God. But the truth is that not every person will engage with God in the same way. For this reason, it is important to discover the particular pathway that will best help them to experience God’s presence.

    In this five-session video study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Gary Thomas uncovers nine of these spiritual “pathways” that people have used over the centuries to grow closer to God. He provides tools for participants to assess their key pathway (much as the Enneagram does for personality types) and encourages them to investigate the ways they most naturally express themselves in their relationship with God. Gary also points out the strengths and pitfalls of their primary pathway and helps them discover the key spiritual tendencies of their friends, family, and others around them.

    Whatever temperament or blend of temperaments best describes our personality, we can rest assured that it is not by accident. It comes by the design of a Creator who knew what he was doing when he made us according to his own unique intentions. Sacred Pathways will reveal the true route we were made to travel.

    Sessions include:

    1. The Journey of the Soul (Introduction to the Pathways)
    2. Pathways of Wonder (Naturalists, Sensates, Aesthetics)
    3. Pathways of Contemplation (Contemplatives, Traditionalists, Intellectuals)

  • Mysteries Of The Messiah Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    In this six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), Rabbi Jason Sobel uncovers connections between the Old Testament and New Testament that are vital in giving us a complete picture of God’s plan for sending Jesus into the world as the Messiah. In the Gospel of Luke, we read how Jesus revealed this connection to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. They listened as Jesus explained, “beginning with Moses and the Prophets . . . what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself,” and later asked themselves, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:27,32).

    Too many of us today are likewise missing this connection. We are settling for just the New Testament or the Old Testament and not understanding how the Bible fits together as a whole to offer one complete picture of Jesus. Both the Old and New are God’s priceless possessions . . . and neither one is more or less valuable than the other. However, together their value increases dramatically! For both are needed in order for us to experience our full inheritance in God’s kingdom and His beloved children.

    As Rabbi Jason unlocks these connections, participants will come to understand:
    *How the foundation of the Bible (The Torah) fits with the rest of Scripture
    *How the Torah answers the question of “who is the promised seed?”
    *How all of the Bible works to give a picture of the promise of Messiah
    *What implications this has for their lives as the Old and New Testaments come together

    The Mysteries of the Messiah will show participants that God’s Word-written by many people over thousands of years-is not a random selection of people and stories but of intricate connections. Rabbi Jason will connect the dots, helping them see with clarity and “high definition” what God intended.

  • Wild At Heart Video Series Updated Edition (DVD)

    $29.99

    In this updated edition of the bestselling classic, author John Eldredge reminds men they need adventure in their lives . . . in their work, in their love, and their spiritual lives. He reveals how God designed men to be dangerous. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: to be a hero, to be a warrior, and to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men today have abandoned these dreams and desires-aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a “nice guy.” It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death.

    In this provocative six-session video study (study guide sold separately), John Eldredge explains how God wants to heal these deep wounds from earlier years that take away a man’s confidence and-in some cases-his masculinity. He shows that deep within the heart of every man is a longing for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue-because that is how God created him. It is time for the church to reclaim these wounded warriors. It is time to give men permission to be what God designed them to be-dangerous, passionate, alive, and free!

    Sessions include:
    1. The Heart of a Man
    2. The Wound

  • Thriving In Love And Money (DVD)

    $19.99

    Over 90 percent of couples experience some level of tension around money. In fact, money issues are the number one stressor in relationships. So many books try to fix the surface problems, such as how to budget and what to prioritize when it comes to finances, but the issues go much deeper than just a simple spreadsheet.

    How do men and women view money differently? What do most couples fight about? How can they get on the same page? What questions should men/women ask their significant others before marriage? There are emotional and spiritual components to finances that most couples ignore. How can you agree on a budget if you disagree with each other on the basic purpose of money?

    Thriving in Love and Money is based on original research Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn have conducted to get to the heart of these issues. And just as they did with their bestselling books For Women Only and For Men Only, they will use this research to provide the answers and insights you need to break the tension and provide the unity you’re looking for. Let this book deepen your understanding of each other, leading to clear communication, peace as a couple, and better financial decision-making.

  • Redeemed Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    God never designed us to just figure things out on our own. When Jesus came to earth to start a revolution, he did so by gathering a small band of ordinary men around him. These men had unique backgrounds, diverse occupations, and individual personalities. Jesus orchestrated learning environments as they worked alongside each other that changed them into the most powerful transformative community in the history of the word. Together, they went from self-centered individuals to united powerhouses.

    The goal of the CORE studies is set men on a similar journey that will transform them and their group into this type of community. Each study features five real-life stories of men who have faced real-life challenges and discovered transformation, redemption, restoration, purpose, and identity. These stories serve as a catalyst for men to start being real about their own stories and realize they are not alone in the struggle. In turn, this opens them up to getting the encouragement necessary to engage in life proactively.

    There has never been a more critical need to equip men with the tools to win the battles over their hearts and futures. CORE gives them the ability to create spaces where they can show up as they are without judgment, be open about their struggles, and find freedom to discover who God says they are. They will be invited to step out of shame and isolation and encouraged to step into their God-given purpose.

    This study features an introduction from Jeremy Affeldt and stories from well-known speakers on the topics of identity, transformation, brotherhood, choices, and renewal.

  • 1 Corinthians A Video Study (DVD)

    Scholar Paul Gardner uses the historical, theological and literary elements of Paul’s letters to guide his interpretation of this early Christian letter in 1 Corinthians, A Video Study. His discussions of how the biblical text delivers consistent, challenging instruction will help pastors, church leaders, and Bible students to better understand the message of Paul to the Corinthians for today. Accessible to anyone seeking to learn more from Paul and the New Testament, these lessons examine the biblical text in its original environment, with an emphasis on practical messages and episodes of great theological depth.

    Alongside the 1 Corinthians commentary in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series, 1 Corinthians, A Video Study explores the book passage-by-passage. This letter to the Corinthians has been employed through generations of the church’s teaching on matters as diverse as marriage and singleness, sexual conduct and immorality, idolatry, use of spiritual gifts, the last things, the wisdom of the world and its impact on the church, pride, problems between the wealthy and the poor, church unity, and many other subjects. Gardner provides interpretive insights into the background and meaning of the text and discusses how the message fits within the book itself and within broader biblical-theological context. Viewers will discover applications for today and see 1 Corinthians through new eyes.

CORE gives them the ability to create spaces where they can show up as they are without judgment, be open about their struggles, and find freedom to discover who God says they are. They will be invited to step out of shame and isolation and encouraged to step into their God-given purpose.

    This study features an introduction from Jeremy Affeldt and stories from well-known speakers on the topics of identity, transformation, brotherhood, choices, and renewal.

  • Revelation Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    Have you ever heard someone say they are afraid of the book of Revelation? Or perhaps without knowing, simply described the book in a negative or challenging way? Nothing could be more incorrect as the entire book is a descriptive and poignant expression of what John was blessed to see that each of us longs to know-a place, an end, an eternity that is promised and is the very definition of hope, extravagant hope.

    As a part of the Beautiful Word Bible Study Series, Bible teacher and author Margaret Feinberg digs into the book of Revelation and the letters to the churches found there. She takes complex and sometimes illusive content and leads us on a journey where we come to realize everything we have hoped for is there, on the pages, waiting for us. Margaret connects beautiful words to this final book of the Bible inspiring women to forever be reminded of the one thing we all long for-extravagant hope.

  • Forward Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    In this six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Dr. David Jeremiah reminds us that the Christian life is to be lived looking forward and with our eyes fixed on the race in front of us–not looking back over at our shoulder at the other runners or the past. In the Bible, the apostle said as much when he wrote, “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:12-14 (NKJV).

    Dr. Jeremiah draws on this key verse to show that while it is good at times to look back, we need to make sure that we don’t go back and allow the past to dictate our future. We need to celebrate our good memories but also celebrate our bad memories with finality–thanking God for the lessons that He has taught us through the experience and committing to use those lesson to make positive changes in our lives. We then need to allow our past memories to cultivate our dreams–boldly stepping into the mission God has for us and allowing Him to continually transform us to be more like Christ.

    Now is the time to step past our comfort and our failure. Now is the time to move forward in following God.

  • You Are Never Alone Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    In this six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Max Lucado looks at the miracles of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of John. As John states, he recorded many of these signs for an express purpose: “These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:31). John chose the stories and events from Jesus’ life that he believed would give his readers strength, empower them, lift them up, and speak life into their situations.

    By the time John penned the words of his Gospel, he was an old man . . . his hair silver and skin wrinkled. He was pastoring a collection of Christ followers in the distant city of Ephesus. But he still loved to tell the story–some six decades earlier and a thousand miles removed–of when Jesus first called him to lay down his net . . . and he obeyed. The others are gone now. Peter, Andrew, James. They’ve long since followed their calls and fulfilled their missions. Only John remains, and he knows that his days are coming to an end. It is with this purpose that he takes up his pen . . . to help his readers believe and have life.

    John’s record of Jesus’ miracles reassure us that we are never stuck or without hope. We are never forgotten. All the forces of heaven have been marshalled to come to our aid. A rescue mission is underway! The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. A multitude of angels and the power of Scripture. The strength of prayer and the wisdom of saints. All this, and more, are continually working together to get us out and see us through. This is the message of the miracles . . . that with God you are never alone.

  • Conformed To His Image Video Study (DVD)

    $79.99

    What does a real relationship with God look like? What does the biblical vision of true spiritual life look like? How do we grow in spiritual maturity? How we answer these questions influence the health, potency, and witness of Christians in an increasingly complex and hostile world.

    The Conformed to His Image Video Lectures, together with the Conformed to His Image Study Guide, answers these questions with clarity and insight, offering a comprehensive, balanced, and applicable guide to spiritual growth. It offers corrective to our tendency to pick and compartmentalize spiritual growth by exploring twelve facets of authentic Christian spirituality including:

    *Relational Spirituality: Loving God Completely, Ourselves Correctly, and Other *Compassionately
    *Paradigm Spirituality: Cultivating an Eternal versus a Temporal Perspective
    *Disciplined Spirituality: Engaging in the Historical Disciplines
    *Exchanged Life Spirituality: Grasping Our True Identity in Christ
    *Motivated Spirituality: A Set of Biblical Incentives
    *Devotional Spirituality: Falling in Love with God
    *Holistic Spirituality: Every Component of Life under the Lordship of Christ
    *Process Spirituality: Process versus Product, Being versus Doing
    *Spirit-Filled Spirituality: Walking in the Power of the Spirit
    *Warfare Spirituality: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil
    *Nurturing Spirituality: A Lifestyle of Evangelism and Discipleship
    *Corporate Spirituality: Encouragement, Accountability, and Worship

    Pointing the way to an integrative, whole-life approach, Dr. Ken Boa shows how each spiritual paradigm discussed is just one important facet in the gem of authentic and powerful New Testament living. Conformed to His Image Video Lectures is a defining series for anyone who desires to follow Christ more closely.

  • Dream Big Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    At some point, we resign ourselves to living by the scripts and rhythms established by other people. Perhaps it’s a parent. Maybe it’s a pastor or a boss or a teacher. Maybe it’s a mortgage or wedding date or that next pay raise. Wherever the source, today there is an ocean full of people living on the life rafts of what they were expected to do. If we look at the mirror, we might see ourselves on that life raft as well.

    In this five-session video study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Bob Goff dares to ask the questions: What would you do if opinion, reason, or probability were no objects? What do you deeply desire to do even if it scares you to the marrow of your bones? What were you meant to do even if no other person thinks you should? He shares stories from the Bible that show how God called certain individuals to follow him-regardless of their lack of “qualifications”-and how those people changed the world when they dared to follow God’s dreams for their lives. In the same way, God is calling us to step into the version of our lives that he intended for us before others told us it was impossible and once again dream big.

    If anyone knows how to live life to the fullest, it is Bob Goff. He has already dazzled readers and audiences with his crazy, audacious, live-out-loud approach and stories told in Love Does and Everybody, Always. Yet as unique as Bob might seem, he had to make his own choice to dream big. In this study, he will take participants on this journey he has already traveled and help them to rediscover the dreams God has for them and turn them into reality. Dream Big will help group members understand that God has a plan for their lives and provide a step-by-step road map to breaking through the barriers that are holding them back.

  • Americas Religious History Video Lectures (DVD)

    $49.99

    In the post-9/11 world, it is not difficult to see how important religion remains in America and around the globe. An older generation of scholars expected that America and the rest of the Western world was headed toward secularization and the end of religion. America is undoubtedly secular in many ways, and our constitutional order requires a clear distinction between faith communities and government. Yet from the colonial era to the present, American men and women have been, and have remained, a pervasively religious people.

    In America’s Religious History Video Lectures, leading historian Thomas S. Kidd traces the theological and ethnic diversity and enduring strength of American religion, with special attention to Christianity and evangelical faith. Interweaving religious history and key events from the larger narrative of American history, the video lectures consider how faith commitments and categories have shaped the nation.

    America’s Religious History Video Lectures offers an up-to-date, narrative introduction to the religious background of American life.

  • Nothing Wasted Video Study (DVD)

    $29.99

    Have you ever sat in church and hoped against hope no one would find out who you once were? Who you are still letting go of? Have you ever wondered if your past was just too much?

    In a world that often encourages us to over-spiritualize, dismiss, or water down the messiest parts of us, Nothing Wasted presents a fresh perspective, showing God is a mixed media artist, lovingly gathering the broken bits and scraps of our lives to create a masterpiece of grace and redemption.

    Bestselling author and speaker, Kasey Van Norman offers perhaps the most honest and vulnerable exposition of just how capable and willing God is to resurrect us from sin and redeem us from all shame.

    This six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately) will take the pressure off outing your past and expose God as the perfecter of everything that brings us shame or pain. God does not care if we are the reason for or the recipient of our messes–he wants us to understand the depth and magnitude of receiving his grace and trust him to transform our pain into something glorious! Nothing is wasted with God.

  • Stories Jesus Told (DVD)

    $44.99

    The parables of Jesus–like the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, and the Laborers in the Vineyard–make up the most distinctive element of his teaching and are essential to our common memory of Jesus. However, almost all of them open themselves to multiple interpretations, leaving interpreters to scratch their heads and argue with one another for centuries.

    In this book, Greg Carey explores six of Jesus’ stories to understand how to read them, interpret them, and understand what they mean for our own lives today.

    The six-session DVD features Greg Carey guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 10-12 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
