  • You Were Made For This Moment Video Study

    $29.99

    Racial divides. Political strife. Uncertain futures. This is the story of our day. But it is also the story of the exiles in Persia. The Jewish people had been taken from their homeland. They were being pressured to conform to foreign customs. They were facing discrimination. Now, an edict was being issued that would stamp out the Jewish race forever. Everything seemed to be falling apart for God’s people. But then two figures emerge on the scene . . . and everything changes.

    As Max Lucado relates in this five-session study (study guide sold separately), Esther and Mordecai are these unlikely heroes of the tale. Both had spent their lives trying to fit in and conform. But both experience a turning point-a crucial moment where they choose to step up and stand out for the God they served. As a result of their courageous actions, winter turned to springtime for God’s people. They emerged from the crisis stronger, more unified, and more committed to serving the God of their forefathers, even in their exile.

    The promise for God’s people in the book of Esther is the same promise that we have today. Our God triumphs in troubled times. When it seems as if everything is falling into pieces, he is working in our midst, causing everything to fall into place. The very one who seeks to destroy us will be destroyed. Even when it appears that evil has won, and that there is no hope for our future, we can know God’s throne is still occupied. We will triumph in the end.

    The question for you today is not whether God will show up on the scene. Rather, it is whether you will choose to be a part of it when he does. Will you, like Mordacai and Esther, realize you are a position for such a time as this (Esther 4:14)? God is calling you to rise up in these chaotic times. You were made for this moment.

    Sessions include:
    1. The Problem of Conformity (Esther 1:1-2:18)
    2. A Moment of Decision (Esther 2:19-4:14)
    3. Heaven Set in Motion (Esther 4:15-6:14)
    4. The God of Great Turnarounds (Esther 7:1-8:17)
    5. Remembering God’s Faithfulness (Esther 9:1-10:3)

  • Understanding Spiritual Gifts Video Study

    $59.99

    What are spiritual gifts?

    Author and pastor Sam Storms has spent several decades teaching on the topic of the spiritual gifts and equipping believers in the faithful practice of God’s gifts. Yet there remains a great deal of confusion about the nature of the gifts and how they best function in the body of Christ.

    In this 18 session video study on the spiritual gifts, Storms addresses the many bizarre and misleading interpretations that abound and confronts the tendency to downplay the urgency of spiritual gifts for Christian living and ministry. He explains how spiritual gifts, both the more miraculous and the somewhat mundane, are given to build up the body of Christ. God has graciously provided these manifestations of the Spirit so that believers might encourage, edify, strengthen, instruct, and console one another, all with a view to an ever-increasing, incremental transformation into the image of Jesus Christ.

    Storms unpacks the glorious truth that there is a supernatural and divine energy or power that fills and indwells the body and soul of every born-again believer. God does not call upon us to speculate about the nature of this power or to embrace it as a mere idea. His desire is that we avail ourselves of it to partner with him in his purposes on the earth. His desire is that we cry out to him that he might intensify, expand, increase, and deepen the manifestation of this power through us in ever more demonstrative and tangible ways in our lives.

    Understanding Spiritual Gifts addresses common questions about the gifts and provides practical training for using and exercising the gifts in ministry. It is perfect for any individual or group who wants to grow in their understanding of the gifts for today.

  • Hard Good Video Study

    $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.

  • Help Is Here Video Study

    $29.99

    The Holy Spirit is a mystery to many of us today. We understand the nature and character of God the Father. We have no problem comprehending Jesus as the Son. But the Holy Spirit? We tend to hem, haw, and search for words when trying to describe him and the work he does in our lives. Perhaps some of the challenge is found in the terms. We understand God as a Father. Jesus as a Son. But God as Spirit? The word itself is mystical.

    In this five-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Max Lucado pulls back the curtain on the third member of Trinity. He shows how Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to his disciples because they needed to be equipped for the work he had in store for them. As he said to them, You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all of Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8 NKJV). Jesus knew they needed the Holy Spirit’s power-to make good choices, keep promises, silence voices of fear, and get on with life. Jesus promised to provide this power to his followers. He still promises to provide this power today.

    The Bible reveals that the Holy Spirit-far from being an impersonal force-is always close, always active, and always at work within our lives. He is our helper, teacher, empowerer, intercessor, peace-bringer, guider, anointer, convicter, and diviner giver of gifts. God has not left us vulnerable and defenseless. Rather, his vision for us includes a Companion with resilient strength. So no more walking this path alone! No more carrying weight we were not intended to bear! It’s time to enjoy the presence of the Holy Spirit and experience the life he offers. It’s time to tap into his power… and realize that help is here.

  • Problem Of God Video Study

    $59.99

    The Problem of God Video Study is presented by a skeptic who became a Christian and then a pastor, all while exploring answers to the most difficult questions raised against Christianity. Mark grew up in an atheistic home, and after his father’s death, began a skeptical search for truth through exploring science, philosophy, and history, asking the big questions of life, and eventually finding answers in Christianity. In a disarming, winsome, and persuasive way, The Problem of God Video Study responds to the top ten questions people raise against God, and Christianity, including, among others:
    *The Problem of Science
    *The Problem of God’s Existence
    *The Problem of the Bible
    *The Problem of Evil and Suffering
    *The Problem of Hell
    *The Problem of Sex
    *The Problem of Hypocrisy

    Each session answers the specific challenge using a mix of theology, philosophy, and science on the one hand, while also using stories and anecdotes. It’s apologetics for the rest of us, focused on both convincing the skeptic and informing the Christian.

  • So Long Normal Video Study

    $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.

  • Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth Video Study

    $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.

  • Subversive Witness Video Study

    $59.99

    While preparing the way for the Lord, John the Baptist declares, Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. Many have failed to do this, in part, because repentance has become diluted. Rather than truly turning away from sin–back to God–we often equate repentance with a mere oral confession. This domesticated, unbiblical understanding of repentance bears no fruit and lacks the power to transform broken people, relationships, systems, and structures. Our lack of repentance conforms us to the patterns of this world, keeping us content amid sinful inequities, complicit with systemic injustice, and apathetic in oppressive context.

    Privilege is a social consequence of our unwillingness to recognize and turn from sin. Scripture affirms that privilege is real and declares that, rather than exploiting it for selfish gain or feeling immobilized by it, Christians have an opportunity to steward privilege and a responsibility to leverage it for the furtherance of the kingdom and the good of our neighbors.

    In Subversive Witness, Dominique DuBois Gilliard highlights biblical examples of privileged people who understood this kingdom call. Their faithful witness serves as a practical model for our modern context. This video study casts a new vision for faithful participation in the inbreaking kingdom as co-laborers with Christ. It leads the church to grapple with privilege, indifference, and systemic sin in new ways, through canonically elevating these issues. Dominique uses Scripture to elucidate how privilege emerges from sin, is sustained by our hardened hearts, and keeps us complicit with oppression. He demonstrates that Christians can wield privilege as an instrument to pursue justice and further the Kingdom, instead of denying its existence, or feeling incapacitated by it. Dominique illustrates how the faithful witness of biblical leaders continue to shape modern believers who have picked up the baton as drum majors for justice, embodying Scripture’s subversive call to leverage, and at times forsake, privilege to sacrificially love our neighbors, enact systemic change, and advance the kingdom of God.

  • Nothing To Prove Video Study

    $29.99

    You don’t have anything to prove.

  • Spiritual Warfare Is Real Video Study

    $29.99

    Finally be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power (Ephesians 6:10). Paul penned these words to a group of believers who endured severe persecution for their faith. Each day, they were confronted with new attacks from their spiritual enemy against their faith in Christ, their love for one another, their calling as God’s ambassadors in the world, and in their heavenly Father. So, Paul encouraged them–each day–to stand strong and put on the full armor of God so they could take their stand against the devil’s schemes (verse 11).

    Jesus described the nature of this enemy when He said, The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. But He also promised, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10). Today, the enemy has been seeking to steal much from God’s followers. For this reason, we need to suit up and make sure we are equipping each piece of God’s armor–truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, the Word of God, prayer–so that we can see through Satan’s schemes, stand strong in God’s power, and repeal the enemy attacks.

    In this five-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Jim Cymbala will guide participants on how to recognize they are in a spiritual war, understand the enemy’s plots against them, and develop practical strategies for fighting back. He will reveal that as believers in Christ, we have been given everything we need to stand strong and take the fight to the enemy. As we do, we will recognize–in the words of the apostle Paul–that God gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57 NLT).

  • Ephesians Video Study

    $29.99

    The book of Ephesians is about identity. It’s about learning who we are, living who are, and then leveraging who we are. When we do that, we stop walking in defeat, and instead, walk with our heads held high.

    Too often, our shoulders slump under the weight of family struggles, financial stress, and feelings of insecurity. We are pushed down by insignificance, insecurity, and an overwhelming sense of powerlessness, disappointment and discouragement.

    You are not meant to be under that burden any longer. You are a chosen child of God, saved by His grace, forgiven and free. It’s time to walk with your head held high.

    In this six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), Lori Wilhite draws on her experience as the pastor’s wife of the fifth largest congregation in the country located in the town otherwise named ‘Sin City’ to share the truth of what Paul tells the Ephesians about unity and its direct reflection of our hearts, our focus, and our love for God.

  • Engaging Theology Video Lectures

    $59.99

    Theology today is faced with increasing amounts of religious and theological pluralism. What is distinctive about Christian theology? Why do these ideas matter? And the biggest question of all: Who cares? Key aspects of orthodox theology are seen as speculative and irrelevant to authentic Christianity and to personal spirituality. These lectures show that key elements of Christian theology ground an integrated worldview and are essential for spiritual formation.

    Engaging Theology Video Lectures is an introductory theology series that grounds a treatment of standard systematic topics in the wider context of life and practice and shows the relevance of each doctrine to the church. Lectures treat the essential doctrines of Christian orthodoxy by beginning with a brief and engaging account of the historical situation out of which the doctrine arose or where it played an essential role in the development of the church, showing students that orthodox theology matters and introducing them to most of the key theologians in the history of the church. The heart of each lecture is exposition of key elements of the core Christian doctrines. Ben Blackwell and R. L. Hatchett explore relevance to the modern setting and concerns, including interaction with heterodox and non-Christian faiths. Lectures also point to other problems the church is facing and practical discussions about how each doctrine can be integrated in personal and corporate life.

    Engaging Theology Video Lectures is ideal for students and everyday people living in a post Christian era to help them seriously engage with the Christian faith.

  • I Am Restored Video Study

    $29.99

    Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds-sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression-that threatened to tear it all apart. Along the way, he realized the wounds we all carry through life have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves and others.In this four-session study (study guide sold separately), Lecrae explains how this journey led him to realize that Christians operate in a functional state of chaotic living that has them bound and trapped in unhealthy patterns and habits without addressing deep root issues. As a result, he began to develop some simple practices when the chaos strikes that have led him to greater mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This involved taking an honest and unflinching look not only at the chaos within his own life but also the chaos without-the hurt that so often occurs in culture, politics, family, the church, and other public spaces.

    I Am Restored reminds us that learning to let go and forgive is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom that God has for each us. It is an inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration that is available to each of us now through Christ. It is also an encouragement to grab hold of the life God has for us. For no matter what we’ve experienced, God is near, he hears, and he’s not done with us yet.

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

    $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

    $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

    $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.

  • Mysteries Of The Messiah Video Study

    $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

    $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
    3. A Battle to Fight
    4. An Adventure to Live

  • Captivating Video Series Updated Edition

    $29.99

    Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child’s play. They are the secret to the feminine heart.

    And yet, how many women ever find that life? As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried. She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she will ever be the Beauty in any tale.

    Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, striving to be the women they ought to be, but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christian women add to the pressure. Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman. The effect has not been good on the feminine soul. But her heart is still there. Sometimes when she watches a movie, sometimes in the wee hours of the night, her heart begins to speak again. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to live, the life she dreamed of as a little girl.In this video Bible study (study guide sold separately), the message of Captivating is that your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now, as the Hero of your story-to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating

  • Thriving In Love And Money

    $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.

  • Transformed Video Study

    $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.

    How do we know the Bible is God’s Word? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts? When and how will Christ return?

    If you’ve asked questions like these, then systematic theology is no abstract term. It’s an approach to finding answers every Christian needs to know.

  • Holy Spirit A Video Study

    $139.99

    Who is the Holy Spirit and how does the Spirit come to be in relation to the Father and the Son? What is the mission of the Spirit and where does it come from? Scholar and author Chris Holmes takes up the questions surrounding the Spirit’s procession and mission with the help of three of the church’s greatest teachers–Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Karl Barth.

    Drawing on their engagements with the Fourth Gospel, Holmes presents an account of the Spirit’s identity, origin, and acts to show how the acts of the Spirit derive from the Spirit’s life in relation to Father and Son–and the extent to which the Spirit’s mission testifies to the Spirit’s origin.

    Alongside The Holy Spirit book, The Holy Spirit, A Video Study presents a way forward for pneumatology. Housed within the doctrine of the Trinity, pneumatology’s joyful task is to describe the Spirit’s acts among us in light of their source in the Spirit’s acts in God. The end of this inquiry is our beatitude–knowledge of the Trinity that yields to love of the Trinity.

    The Holy Spirit, A Video Study is part of The Zondervan Beyond the Basics Video Series, which is dedicated to bringing expert teaching from world’s best theologians and biblical scholars directly to interested learners. The Holy Spirit, A Video Study offers the chance to learn about one of the central tenants of the Christian faith from one of today’s premier theologians.

  • Problem Of Jesus A Video Study

    $59.99

    Jesus has never been more popular. Some love him, applauding him as a good teacher, a political revolutionary, or a prophetic voice speaking out against the rich and powerful. Others find him bigoted, old-fashioned, and narrow minded, even as they are forced to admit that his words and teachings are utterly unique. His presence infuses our political discussions and our dinner table debates, making him impossible to ignore.

    Yet sadly, in many churches today, the Jesus we meet is nothing more than a kindly man with children on his lap and a smile on his face. He is presented as a good person, a positive influence–a mixture of Mr. Rogers and Tony Robbins. The Jesus of American Christianity is meek, gentle, safe, and fun, always ready to be your best friend.

    When we dig more deeply into the Bible, we discover a very different picture. Wherever Jesus went in his life, from the day he was born until the day he died, scandal and controversy followed him. Be warned. If you investigate Jesus beyond the superficial glance most give him today you will be challenged and confronted. Jesus creates in each person who encounters him a crisis of faith, forcing us to a point of decision.

    In The Problem of Jesus, A Video Study, author and pastor Mark Clark looks beyond the superficial understandings of Jesus to examine his hard-hitting claims and teachings, including:

    *The reliable evidence that Jesus was a real, historical figure
    *The oft-unexamined cost of following Jesus
    *His claim to be God, the Creator of all, worthy of worship
    *His teachings and stories, which have always offended religious people
    *His miracles and actions, what they meant in the ancient world–and today
    *The claims of Jesus to be the only, exclusive path to God

    The Problem of Jesus, A Video Study confronts you with the real Jesus of history, asking you to wrestle with the teachings, claims, and actions of the man who has forever altered the course of human history. Every person must make their own decision about Jesus, choosing how they will live in light of the answers they discover about this amazing man.

We never know what or who hangs in the balance of the decisions we make. But what we do know is this: private decisions have public implications.

    These five simple questions will empower you to:

    *Make better decisions with fewer regrets
    *Pause when feeling tension over a decision
    *Take the long view
    *Look for the wise option

    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

    $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.

  • Mark A Video Study

    $139.99

    Mark’s fast-paced, powerful, and dramatic Gospel takes the reader on a breath-taking tour through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. Part of the Zondervan Beyond the Basics Video Series, Mark, A Video Study, taught by Mark Strauss, uses a narrative and theological approach to provide insight into the Evangelist’s story-telling craft, theological purpose, and narrative themes.

    Mark, A Video Study, along with accompanying book Mark from the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series, stresses both the message of Jesus as he proclaims the kingdom of God and the mission of Jesus as he suffers and dies as a ransom for human sin. Lectures examine the biblical text in its original environment, with an emphasis on practical messages and passages of great theological depth. Strauss provides interpretive insights into the background and meaning of the text, and discusses how the message of the text fits within the book itself and its broader biblical-theological context. Learners will discover Jesus’s call to be his disciples and to live in obedience to his kingdom calling in their lives today.

  • Forgiving What You Cant Forget Video Study

    $29.99

    Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind? You know you can’t go on living like this, but you don’t know what to do next. And you just don’t know if you’ll ever get past it.

    In this six-session Bible study (study guide sold separately), Lysa TerKeurst has walked this journey, wrestling with deep wounds that feel impassible and struggling to move forward. And she’s discovered that, to find life-giving freedom, we have to let go of our bound-up resentment and resistance to forgiving people who’ve hurt us. With deep empathy, therapeutic insight, and rich Bible teaching coming out of 1,000 hours of study, Lysa helps us:

    *learn how to move on when the other person refuses to change and never says they’re sorry;

    *walk through a step-by-step process to free ourselves from the hurt of our past and feel less offended today;

    *discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and the peace that comes from living it out right now;

    *identify what’s stealing trust and vulnerability from our relationships so we can believe there is still good ahead; and

    *disempower the triggers hijacking our emotions by embracing the two necessary parts of forgiveness.

  • Sacred Pathways Video Study

    $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)
    4. Pathways of Action (Activists, Caregivers, and Enthusiasts)
    5. Tending the Garden of the Soul (How the Pathways Applies to Your Life)

  • You Are Never Alone Video Study

    $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.

  • Introduction To Biblical Greek Video Lectures

    $199.99

    An Introduction to Biblical Greek Video Lectures focuses on the linguistic and syntactic elements of Koine Greek with the goal of accurate interpretation.

This solid linguistic foundation enables students first to internalize key concepts, then to apply and build upon them as more complex ideas are introduced.

    Coordinated for use with the An Introduction to Biblical Greek Grammar textbook, An Introduction to Biblical Greek Video Lectures demonstrates how students should mark Greek texts so they can begin to see the syntax, using texts from both the Greek New Testament and Septuagint as examples.

  • Conformed To His Image Video Study

    $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.
