Practice Of Remembering$18.00Add to cart
Christianity Today Award of Merit
What if our memories are like shells we gather on a beach?
According to pastor and spiritual director Casey Tygrett, “We-and all those who have come before us-pick up the experience and we sense it: we feel its edges, notice its color, we smell the distinctive character (for shells it is the sickly seafood salt smell) of the experience, and we try to make sense of what it is. Is it beautiful? How would you describe the color-the tones, the shades, wrapped around the ridges and swirls? Has it been damaged? Does the hard edge scrape our hand, leaving a blemish or a mark?”
How we hold and carry these memories-good and bad-is a part of what forms us spiritually. In this way we have a common bond with the people of Scripture who also had a sensory life, gathering shells and trying to make sense of them. Previously titled As I Recall, Casey Tygrett’s writing in The Practice of Remembering explores the power of memory and offers biblical texts and practices to guide us in bringing our memories to God for spiritual transformation.
Your God Is Too Glorious$18.95Add to cart
Most of us are regular people who have good days and bad days. Our lives are radically ordinary and unexciting. That means they’re the kind of lives God gets excited about. While the world worships beauty and power and wealth, God hides his glory in the simple, the mundane, the foolish, working in unawesome people, things, and places. In our day of celebrity worship and online posturing, this is a refreshing, even transformative way of understanding God and our place in his creation. It urges us to treasure a life of simplicity, to love those whom the world passes by, to work for God’s glory rather than our own. And it demonstrates that God has always been the Lord of the cross–a Savior who hides his grace in unattractive, inglorious places. Your God Is Too Glorious reminds readers that while a quiet life may look unimpressive to the world, it’s the regular, everyday people that God tends to use to do his most important work.
Gaming And The Heroic Life$14.95Add to cart
Video games fuel a fundamental human drive for adventure–like the epic quest to slay zombies, a solo voyage to rescue the princess, or setting off with a clan to defeat the final boss.
The desire to be a hero in your journey is something Bobby Angel can relate to. A lifelong gamer, he was the cohost of the God and Gaming series on YouTube and often appears as a guest on Bearded Blevins’s Around the Halo on Twitch. In Gaming and the Heroic Life, Bobby explains that you don’t have to just play the role of hero in a game–you can actually pursue a heroic life by the way you engage the virtual world.
Gaming and the Heroic Life is a map to becoming not only a better gamer but also a better person–one who has a purpose and knows where they fit into the world.
The book contains three levels:
*Level One explores why people love games and what games have to do with God.
*Level Two examines how the Easter eggs of truth, beauty, and goodness in games impact players in much the same way that they impact your relationship with God.
*Level Three demonstrates how gaming can propel players AFK (away from keyboard) to find purpose and meaning in service to others.
Bobby shows where video games intersect with a life of faith in God–how games echo with our call to holiness and how we can respond to that call in both the virtual and real worlds.
Mary And The Interior Life$18.99Add to cart

Monastic Ecological Wisdom$21.95Add to cart
Can early medieval monasteries serve as a model of sustainable development and environmental conservation in today’s world? Inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si and Benedictine communities around the world whose shared monastic values inform ecological practice, Monastic Ecological Wisdom uncovers the hidden story of early Christian and monastic care for the earth.
In Monastic Ecological Wisdom, Samuel Torvend shows how it is possible that medieval monastic values and practices could assist in the careful conservation of what we claim is God’s first gift, God’s first gesture of grace: the earth and all that dwells with it. By reflecting on an ecological reading of New Testament texts, the Rule of St. Benedict, and early monastic engagement with the natural world as seen in the life of St. Benedict, such practices can serve thoughtful Christians today who care deeply about living in harmony with the earth and all who call it home.
Stay : Discovering Grace, Freedom, And Wholeness Where You Never Imagined L$17.00Add to cart
It may sound counterintuitive to stay with our aches and disappointment. We prefer comfort, so our default response is to withdraw, avoid, numb, and neurotically fix. But what if Jesus is pulling out a chair and whispering, Stay?
Anjuli Paschall invites you to stop running from your pain and to discover that the deep end of your story is the way to intimacy with Christ. She extends a daring invitation to stay with your everyday aches, your guilt, your loneliness, your anger, your anxiety, your longings, and even your apathy. True power and transformation are found in the very places we resist the most.
It’s here, in the staying, where we move from merely knowing in our heads that God loves us to believing it in our hearts. Stay is an invitation to sit with God at the table of your soul–and be free.

Ancient Ladder : A Journey To The Fullness Of Life With God$17.99Add to cart
For all of us longing to find purpose beyond suffering and faith beyond despair, The Ancient Ladder explores the biblically based three-step spiritual passage that ancient mystics saw as the way to follow Jesus toward Christian maturity.
What causes faith to transform from an intellectual knowing about God to a passionate love story with God? Scott MacLellan asked this question as his daughter battled cancer and he looked for purpose in his family’s suffering. He couldn’t believe that God was uninterested, but he also rejected trite reassurances.
He finally found a satisfying answer in the three-step passage–based on the writings of Solomon–that Christian mystics identified as a path through pain to true spiritual devotion. In The Ancient Ladder, Scott helps us apply the wisdom of past centuries to our challenges today as we:
*Move through Proverbs (fearing the Lord) to Ecclesiastes (honoring the Lord) to Song of Solomon (loving the Lord).
*Journey from stale spirituality to a robust and meaningful faith that enriches our relationships, self-awareness, and enjoyment of God.
*See with fresh eyes the big picture of the Christian life.
Scott helps us understand Solomon’s writings, the spiritual fruit that can come from our suffering, and our seasons of unbelief so we can let go of the people we were and become who we were meant to be.

Path Through Pain
$27.99Add to cart
In the midst of deep pain, how can you move forward?
Most of us spend our lives avoiding pain at every turn, so when we inevitably experience it, it sends us into a tailspin. We begin to question why God doesn’t stop bad things from happening, if there’s significance in our pain, and whether or not God is truly worthy of our trust or actually cares about us.
Ed and Lisa Young, bestselling authors and pastors of Fellowship Church, know the kind of pain most of us hope never to experience–the death of a child. With refreshing vulnerability and power, A Path through Pain shares their family’s journey from sorrow and anger to hope and healing after the tragic and sudden loss of their daughter. As they share their incredible perspective, they will inspire and equip you to:
*See God’s presence, love, and care in the middle of your suffering
*Believe that there is purpose in your pain, even if you can’t see that purpose yet
*Rebuild your life after a season of pain
*Restore your trust in God and the world you live in
God really does care for us, and in the darkest of places, his light still shines to show us a way through.

You are seen, heard, known, and named
No matter your season of life as a woman, you long to be loved and appreciated. But perhaps most days you’re left feeling unseen, unheard, or unknown.

Why limit the only power that’s capable of doing far and above all that we could ever think or imagine?
After reading this book, you will have the tools you need to navigate life with the Holy Spirit in the way that God always intended for you to have.
In 2016, when Benny Tate decided to preach a sermon series on the Holy Spirit, He believed the Holy Spirit would come and bring great change. But He didn’t expect Him to change everything in his life as well and in the lives of his church staff and congregation!
In Unlimited, Tate helps readers discover a deeper understanding of the Holy Spirit and realize His importance in their daily lives. Focusing on our need of the Holy Spirit, as well as His presence, power, and role in equipping us to fulfill our purpose, this book will help readers grow and better relate to the third person of the Trinity.
Providing real-life, practical applications and examples, Tate shows readers that when they allow the Holy Spirit to fill and direct their lives, everything will change: relationships will be healed, self-esteem will be lifted, purpose will be revealed, direction will become clear, hope will overflow, peace will reign in their hearts, and God’s goodness and faithfulness in their lives will be undeniable!
Being filled daily by the Holy Spirit is the only satisfying source in life. The hardships and disappointments will drain us, but the Holy Spirit’s power is available to us every day because His power and presence are unlimited!
Practice Of The Presence Of Jesus$20.00Add to cart
Discover the joy of intentionally dwelling in the presence of God as the beloved author of Joni weaves contemporary insights with the timeless wisdom of seventeenth-century monk Brother Lawrence.
Suffering has a way of heaving you beyond the shallows of life where your faith feels ankle-deep. It casts you out into the fathomless depths of God. -Joni, from the Introduction
Brother Lawrence lived through the drudgeries of monastery kitchen duty during the turbulence of 1600s France. Joni Eareckson Tada suffered a terrible accident that broke her neck and left her paralyzed. This tragedy led her from a life of distant faith to a life as a devout Christian, and she later became a worldwide influence and disability rights activist, sharing her experiences of suffering with grace. In both their lives, they each found the secret to peace, joy, and a close personal walk with God: being in constant conversation with the Father . . . every day and every hour . . . practicing the presence of God.
The Practice of the Presence of Jesus ushers in wisdom from these two everyday saints, more than 400 years apart, to teach and inspire you to find and experience the nearness of God in your life. Through rich devotional content from Brother Lawrence’s The Practice of the Presence of God accompanied by original art and never-before-published insight from Joni in response to his excerpts, you’ll experience a unique blend of past and present wisdom on such themes as humility, thankfulness, fear, worship, obedience, and more. Each devotion ushers you into the peace of the Good Shepherd.

Dirt : Growing Strong Roots In What Makes The Broken Beautiful$16.99Add to cart
Dirt is a story about the places where we start. From a single-wide trailer in the mountains of rural West Virginia to the halls of Yale Law School, Mary Marantz’s story is one of remembering our roots while turning our faces to the sky. From growing up in that trailer, where it rained just as hard inside as out and the smell of mildew hung thick in the air, Mary has known what it is to feel broken and disqualified because of the muddy scars leaving smudged fingerprints across our lives. Generations of her family lived and logged in those hauntingly treacherous woods, risking life and limb just to barely scrape by. And yet that very struggle became the redemption song God used to write a life she never dreamed of.
Mixed with warmth, wit, and the bittersweet, sometimes achingly heartbreaking places we go when we dig in instead of give up, Dirt is a story of healing. With gut-wrenching honesty and hard-won wisdom, Mary shares her story for anyone who has ever walked into the world and felt like their scars were still on display, showing that you are braver, better, and more empathetic for what you have survived. Because God does his best work in the muddy, messy, and broken–if we’ll only learn to dig in.

Inner Search$18.95Add to cart
Sometimes real breakthroughs in your spiritual life come about only after searing self-examination. Dom Hubert van Zeller encourages “seeking the face of the Lord always,” adding that “the whole of our effort of faith, exercised throughout life, amounts precisely to this.” When it is pursued properly and consistently, countless benefits, spiritual and otherwise, soon follow.
A Carthusian monk, Dom van Zeller produced works that became exceedingly popular in the 1950s. He had the rare gift of translating monastic spiritual wisdom, developed over centuries, into clear, practical advice for ordinary Catholics seeking to deepen their prayer lives. The Inner Search, one of his most enduring and readable books, takes as its point of departure the psalmist’s exhortation to seek the Lord’s face continually and reveals:
*The single most powerful “vitalizing factor” in the spiritual life
*Five things that foster the gift of spiritual “discernment”
*What spiritual “over eagerness” is, and how it can hamper the action of grace
*The bad habit to which almost every excess in the spiritual life can be traced
*The worldview that leads to perpetual frustration – and the worldview that leads to happiness
*Three ways God “exactly fits” our spiritual sufferings to our souls’ specific needs and capacities
Dom van Zeller explores false ideas about God’s will that impede our progress toward sanctity and explains how to recognize and correct them. He also explains the root cause of unhappiness and the single issue on which our lives will be judged. (Can you guess?)
You will come to understand the relationship between the ascetical life and mystical life and the importance of mental prayer and charity. You will also be consoled by the way the Holy Spirit works to make us contemplatives in the midst of the world. Moreover, you will see what it means to “discover God present in the soul” (an important step in spiritual progress) and how best to attain this union with the Holy Trinity here on earth.
“The saints are those in whom there is least obstacle to the life of Christ within the soul,” van Zeller reflects. In this profound and penetrating classic, you will find out how to open your heart more fully to receive all the graces God wants to give you.

Leaving Loneliness Behind$14.95Add to cart
Our connections with God and others are fundamental to who we are as people. The reality is that often these relationships–especially with our family, friends, and others around us–are less than ideal, and we end up feeling lonely. That loneliness makes us doubt God’s promises, our friends and family, and even the idea that we are worthy of love at all.
In Leaving Loneliness Behind, licensed Catholic therapist Regina Boyd helps you build the skills you need to have meaningful, rich, and rewarding relationships with God and those around you.
Emotional intimacy is the antidote to loneliness, Boyd says. It’s about sharing yourself and your feelings more deeply with another person–being vulnerable and trusting through what you say and how you act.
So how do we reach emotional intimacy? Boyd identifies five keys:
1. Recognize the potential depths in your existing relationships.
2. Allow yourself to be vulnerable so that true intimacy is possible.
3. Communicate through conflicts in a way that encourages affection, trust, and openness.
4. Acknowledge the past and move toward emotional wholeness.
5. Give of yourself for the sake of the relationship.
Each chapter includes a real-life story that illustrates how applying the principles of emotional intimacy can transform marriages, friendships, families, and workplaces. Catholic thought, stories from scripture, and teachings from the Church highlight how our faith connects to our daily actions and exchanges.
Trailblazers : A Journey To Discover God’s Purpose For Your Life$17.99Add to cart
Are you ready to live a life like no one else?
We all want our lives to count for something. We desperately want to know if we matter, what our purpose is, and if it’s ok to chase a dream bigger than ourselves. In Trailblazers, using biblical characters and his own life experiences, pastor Micah E. Davis shows how a life that is built on a solid foundation of faith can lead us to blaze a new trail . . . a unique one God has purposed for us. And the best part is you don’t have to wait for anyone else–you can start right now!
In his debut book, Micah takes us on a fresh, honest, and bold journey, exploring such questions as:
*What is my purpose and how do I know it’s what God wants for me?
*What do I need to let go of to pursue the calling God has placed on my life?
*Does God have more in store for me than this? Am I really allowed to go after it?
*Can God use a flawed and broken person like me to impact the Kingdom?
At the heart of a Trailblazer lies a supernatural courage, strength, and faith to go first. Come alongside Micah to discover what it truly means to live out the way of a Trailblazer and to live a life that matters.
Shaped By The Word$14.99Add to cart
In the foreword to the first edition of Shaped by the Word, Bishop Rueben Job wrote, “One of the great strengths of this volume is that it grows out of the spiritual pilgrimage of a capable and committed biblical scholar. It was my privilege to hear these lectures when they were presented to the first Academy for Spiritual Formation in 1983. They became for those who heard them a window to God.”
Nearly forty years later, Shaped by the Word continues to provide this “window to God” to readers across the world.
In a success-oriented world, it is easy for Bible study to become another task to perform rather than a transformational experience. Those who hunger for a deep relationship with God often struggle with barriers that keep us from being able to meditate and listen to God with the deepest core of our being. Shaped by the Word seeks to overcome these barriers through a formational reading of the Bible. In this timeless book, Robert Mulholland shows readers how to listen for God’s voice in our study of the Word and allow God to lead our reading and understanding so that we may truly be transformed.
Experiencing Friendship With God$17.00Add to cart
Build a confident friendship with Jesus that will carry you through the seasons of wilderness and back to abundance, with ancient wisdom alongside modern guidance from pastor and speaker Faith Eury Cho.
When prayers aren’t answered and the season of waiting extends too long, how do you feel God’s presence? We have all wrestled with the mysteries of living for a holy God while wandering through the wilderness of the soul.
How do you move forward during these seasons? How do you deepen your faith? Along with the ancient wisdom of seventeenth-century Brother Lawrence’s classic and beloved The Practice of the Presence of God, Faith Eury Cho helps you understand:
*How to be fueled by an authentic relationship with God
*How to wrestle with the tension of believing He is with you even when you cannot feel Him or understand what He is doing
*How God is enough through revisiting Israel’s journey in the wilderness and Paul’s experience in prison
*What tools you can use to deepen your intimacy with God
*What a life that is centered around His Presence looks like
Cho equips and heightens your confidence to simply go to Jesus and build a genuine friendship. By fostering this relationship with Jesus, you won’t have to wonder about feeling God’s presence. It is a life-changing pursuit because we were designed to know Him. If knowing God is your purpose, then every season of our lives will have significance-even the wilderness.
What If Jesus Was Serious About Heaven$16.99Add to cart
Many Christians think about heaven as a distant place we go after we die. But what if it’s a very real kingdom available to us right now, here on earth?
In What If Jesus Was Serious about Heaven?, Skye Jethani unpacks what Jesus really said about heaven and how it can transform our faith today. The fourth in Jethani’s popular What If Jesus Was Serious? series, this guide includes the author’s hand-drawn illustrations in each chapter.
Jethani explores the importance of the kingdom of heaven in Jesus’s ministry, message, and parables. In doing so, he redefines the popular understanding of heaven as a celestial home for the dearly departed and reimagines our role in God’s kingdom here on earth. This book shows what Jesus and his first followers knew about heaven that we get wrong and helps us recapture what it means for God’s kingdom to be present on earth right now.
Seeing As Jesus Sees

Spirituality Of Transformation Joy And Justice$25.99Add to cart
Discover how rooting our beliefs and practices in relationship–with each other, the natural world, and the Source of All Life–leads us to transform ourselves and the world.
At its heart, Ignatian spirituality is practical and experiential, offering modern readers a structure for pursuing inner growth that results in transformed action. While it is a deeply contemplative practice, Ignatian spirituality appeals to many of us who are looking for purpose and meaning, and who are wondering how to live out that purpose in a way that addresses the brokenness of our world.
At the heart of this thoughtful introduction to Ignatian spirituality are the Spiritual Exercises, developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola of Spain. Using ordinary language, these meditations point to the ways in which this spiritual path not only grows our souls but also inspires us to defend human rights, respect and listen to other cultures, find common ground between science and religion, struggle for justice, and honor a Divine Spirit who is actively at work in each aspect of our world. As twenty-first-century spiritual seekers, we do not need to be Jesuits, Catholics, or even Christians to make use of Ignatius’s methods; some of history’s most important thinkers–from RenA(C) Descartes to Carl Jung–were influenced and inspired by the Spiritual Exercises. Let them guide you to transformation in the ordinary, everyday world.
I Didnt Sign Up For This$17.99Add to cart
This wasn’t part of the plan. The story wasn’t supposed to go this way. I didn’t sign up for this. If you’ve ever had these thoughts, chances are that your story has shifted in some unexpected way. Perhaps it’s even turned totally upside down, and you’re wondering how in the world to move forward.
You’re not alone. As author Sarah Frazer journeys with you through the story of Moses, you’ll find that even a hero of God’s people faced all sorts of confusing and painful plot twists too. Moses didn’t settle in the Promised Land, but He met the Lord of Promise. His legacy reminds us that even with a life crushed with disappointment, God’s plan goes forth, God’s presence provides, God’s promises are personal, and God’s purpose is never thwarted. As you journey through his life in these pages, you’ll discover:
*how life’s plot twists and interruptions are actually the ways God is working
*how God uses the darkest circumstances to proclaim His sovereign goodness
*how to number your days rightly, recognize God’s hand in each branch of your path, and cultivate a heart of wisdom and trust
*how to say goodbye to disillusionment and instead invite God’s plan, presence, promises, and purpose back into your heart
Friend, let God pick you up and show you how to grow through whatever detour, setback, heartache, or disappointment life has thrown at you. Like Moses, you may not have signed up for the path you’re on, but God can–and will–see you through it.
Who You Are$22.99Add to cart
In our culture today, the preoccupation over self-identity–or who we are–is hard to ignore. But the pursuit of self-understanding has been a recurring theme throughout human history. How many times have you asked yourself, “Who am I?”
The desire to answer this question–whether it manifests in self-enhancement strategies or self-serving biases–is part of being human. Yet, through a Biblical lens, we know something has gone terribly wrong with our human nature. Brokenness happened when sin separated us from our Creator God, and the answers we seek are only obtainable when we reconnect with him.
Using the Gospel-Centered Integrative Framework for Therapy developed at Redeemer Counseling Services, Judy Cha explains:
*The human desire for an identity
*The role of shame and hurt in shaping who we think we are
*Self-redemption, and why it doesn’t work
*The Gospel as God’s rescue plan for a lost humanity
*How to ardently know your story, truly live in your community, and deeply connect with God
Who You Are shows us that the Gospel is the only thing that sets you free from the verdict of sin and justifies you as God’s prized possession. When you internalize the Gospel–this message of restorative love–you come to know who you are more and more every day.
This unique resource is ideal for those who feel stuck in a perpetual loop of “finding themselves” and for counselors or ministry leaders seeking to help others with gospel-centered healing.
Well Said : Choosing Words That Speak Life, Give Grace, And Strengthen Your$17.99Add to cart
Have you ever had moments when your words have gotten the better of you?
Maybe you knew how much something would hurt, but you said it anyway because it felt good in the moment. Maybe you’re fighting a habit of complaining or yelling, when you really want to be a person who speaks with kindness and patience. Or maybe you stay silent because you’re never quite sure what to say. Whatever your “maybe” may be, you are in the right place. As a wife, mom, and the creator of the popular Modern Farmhouse Family Instagram, Sarah Molitor has learned firsthand that yes, words can hurt–but they can also help and heal.
In Well Said, she uses authentic, relatable stories paired with Biblical truth to help readers:
*Use their words to create grace-filled, positive relationships
*Develop a healthy, balanced approach to social media (and find their wisdom filter)
*Feel equipped to use words to forgive and reconcile differences so they can live freely and fully . . . and so much more.
Well Said helps you explore what it means to speak words that direct you to the very heart of Jesus. Sarah will be the trusted friend who walks alongside you, encouraging you to discover God’s true desire for the words we speak every day.

Whats So Amazing About Grace Revised And Updated (Revised)
$19.99Add to cart
OVER TWO MILLION COPIES SOLD!
It’s the most powerful force in the universe, our only hope for love and forgiveness, and a foretaste of eternal life: amazing, radical, life-changing grace.

*How well are we dispensing grace to a world that knows far more of strife and unforgiveness than it does of mercy?
*Can grace make a difference in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust, and how can it withstand the brutality of hate?

*Why being real with ourselves, God, and others leads to peace and hope
*How faking perfection robs us of the transformative power of grace
*What the Bible says about insecurity and identity
*Step-by-step ways to overcome our fear of being vulnerable

See Yourself Beautiful See Yourself Happy$17.99Add to cart
If someone asks you who you are, you probably have a pat answer that tells them what you do. But saying who you are? That’s not always so easy.
In See Yourself Beautiful, See Yourself Happy: An Invitation to Discover Who You Were Meant to Be, Sonia Luna invites you to embark on a journey to discover your true self. As the pastor of a church that reaches thousands weekly, she is known for her strong faith and Holy Spirit anointing.
Through each chapter, Sonia shows her vulnerability, sharing details of her life as a daughter, wife, mother, and minister of the Lord, explaining how everything developed her identity. By way of example, she offers insights into spiritual, psychological, and emotional issues that confront us as life unfolds.
This journey is shaped by our experiences since birth, the influences of our families, the moments that mark us, and the many stages that we go through in our development as human beings.
In an intimate, relatable narrative, Sonia describes how the psychological and emotional wounds that once affected us in our childhood and youth can continue to cause deep traumas that alter or threaten our identity. These can lead to insecurities, fears, difficulty in recognizing our own talents, and unsatisfactory interpersonal relationships.
But Sonia offers reason for hope, affirming that there is not a single life that cannot be transformed by God. She invites you to discover your identity through the “infinite trigger” of Christ. By placing your life in His hands, you will fulfill your divine purpose and see yourself as you are: beautiful, valued, and loved.
“It is only when we understand how valuable we are to God that we start to notice the mistaken concept we had of ourselves,” Sonia says.
Once you see the best in yourself as God does, you will know your true identity as His beloved child. Happiness awaits when you work to achieve the divine purpose He has for you.

Holy Runaways : Rediscovering Faith After Being Burned By Religion$25.99Add to cart
Holy Runaways speaks to people who are feeling ignored, oppressed, or rejected by their religious community and church, offering a path forward built on speaking truth, deep listening, and acting with compassion.
In the past decade, church attendance among US adults has decreased by more than 25 percent. Americans report leaving religious communities because of the institutions’ hypocrisy and resistance to change or because of trauma they have experienced in those spaces. Instead of safe havens for people of faith, many churches have become sites of harm–places people feel the need to escape at all costs.
In Holy Runaways, psychotherapist Matthias Roberts reaches out to those who, like him, want to understand the religion they’ve run from and erect a new faith on firmer foundations. He concludes that the best blueprint for a new spiritual home requires reimagining ourselves, God, and our very definition of faith.
Roberts blends deeply personal stories, new interpretations of familiar Christian parables, and recent scholarship about the dynamics of trauma to offer a way forward–and a warm, helpful companion–for readers on their own journeys. He calls out people who perpetuate systems of violence and oppression and suggests ways we can all contribute to a new system built on love–and a new home we can inhabit together.
Called Into Questions
$15.99Add to cart
Do we know what it means to question well?
We need not fear questions. By the grace of God, we have the safety and security to rush headlong into them and find ourselves better for it on the other side.
Faith is not the sort of thing that endures so long as our eyes are closed. The opposite is the case: Faith helps us see, and that means not shrinking from the ambiguities and the difficulties that provoke our most profound questions.
In our embrace of questioning, we must learn to question well. In our uncertainty, we must not give up the task of walking worthy of the calling that Christ has placed upon us.
We are living in the age of deconstruction. We are constantly bombarded online, in schools, and sometimes even in our homes by attitudes and arguments aimed at deconstructing our faith. Called Into Questions is written to aid us in faithfully questioning our foundations. Professor Matthew Lee Anderson shows us, and the ones we love, how to grapple with doubt in a redemptive way–in a way that brings us closer and leaves us more secure in Jesus Christ.
Just Show Up
$15.99Add to cart
If someone puts one more thing on my shoulders, I might collapse.
Bestselling self-help book titles tell you that you’re brilliant, awesome, powerful–usually with an expletive thrown in, just to pound home the point. Do these affirmations feel accurate? Instead of blasting through projects and conquering the world, most of us feel like we’re crawling uphill.
But Christians are still called to live a life that glorifies God and blesses others. How do we do that when we’re stretched to capacity? Just Show Up answers that question with a liberating message: God doesn’t expect you to do everything. And He certainly doesn’t expect you to do it all overnight. Simply showing up is often the most important thing.
This book looks at present-day examples and also stories from Scripture of imperfect people used by God. Moses, by his own admission, wasn’t very eloquent, but he showed up and God used him to liberate and lead His people. We name churches and children after the disciples. But originally, they were just a bunch of uneducated nobodies with one thing in common: when Jesus said, “Follow me,” they showed up.
With humor and candor, Dyck reflects on his own faltering progress while recounting inspiring stories of how God rewards the persistent presence of ordinary people. Just Show Up challenges readers to show up for God, family, community, and themselves.
We tend to think it’s the big, bold moments that matter. In reality, it’s the steady accumulation of small acts of obedience to God that add up to a life of meaning and impact. -Dyck
