Title :

Delighting In God

 

Author :

A W Tozer / James Snyder

Category : Author

Format : Softcover

Price: $22.00*

A.W. Tozer's Follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy

We were created in the image of God, and to understand who we are, we need to understand who God is. His very character and nature are reflected through us. Unless we fully grasp who we are, we'll never become all God wants us to be.

Delighting in God is the message Tozer intended to be the follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy. He demonstrates how the attributes of God--those things God has revealed about himself--are a way to understand the Christian life of worship and service. We are here to serve and adore him, but we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who he is, which is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort.

Heart Of Revelation

Author : Scott Duvall

Category : Christian Living

Format : Softcover

Despite gallons of ink spilled and hours of movies made on the book of Revelation, it remains one of the most confusing and least understood books of Scripture. But Scott Duvall has good news for discouraged readers--you can benefit from the hope and encouragement of this mysterious book if you grasp its main teachings.

In this thematic approach to Revelation, Duvall reveals its ten most important themes, allowing readers to focus on the vision of hope Revelation provides. Rather than discussing different views of the end times, Duvall points us toward the major biblical themes of God, worship, the people of God, the Holy Spirit, our mission, the Lamb of God, judgment, perseverance, and more, allowing readers to understand and apply the message of Revelation here and now.

Giver & The Gift

Peter Greer / David Weekley

A Relational Approach to Fundraising

For many people, fundraising has become a dirty word. Conjuring images of guilt-inducing gimmickry, the predominant model saps the joy from both the donor and the receiver. But what if fundraising has the potential to be good for the giver, not just the recipient? What if it's about love and service, not just "What's in it for me?" 

These are the questions that Peter Greer, president and CEO of Hope International, and David Weekley, one of America's most influential philanthropists, answer in The Giver and the Gift. Based upon their own relationship and experiences, The Giver and the Gift outlines a Kingdom perspective on fundraising. Instead of guilt, there is gratitude. Instead of obligation, joy. 

It's time to dismantle certain shaky beliefs and practices, energizing a new generation of generosity. 


"How does fundraising become a Kingdom partnership, instead of just the transfer of funds? As a person who has spent years in the middle of these partnerships, I found the book fresh, clear, and extremely helpful." --Denny Rydberg, president of Young Life

Title :

Jesus Behaving Badly

 

Author :

Mark Strauss

Category : Christology

Format : Softcover

Price: $23.50*
* Price Before Member's Discount

 

Everybody likes Jesus. Don't they? We overlook that Jesus was

  • Judgmental―preaching hellfire far more than the apostle Paul
  • Uncompromising―telling people to hate their families
  • Chauvinistic―excluding women from leadership
  • Racist―insulting people from other ethnic groups
  • Anti-environmental―cursing a fig tree and affirming animal sacrifice
  • Angry―overturning tables and chasing moneychangers in the temple
     

He demanded moral perfection, told people to cut off body parts, made prophecies that haven't come true, and defied religious and political authorities. While we tend to ignore this troubling behavior, the people around Jesus didn't. Some believed him so dangerous that they found a way to have him killed. The Jesus everybody likes, says Mark Strauss, is not the Jesus found in the Gospels. He's a figure we've created in our own minds. Strauss believes that when we unpack the puzzling paradoxes of the man from Galilee, we find greater insight into his countercultural message and mission than we could ever have imagined.

Title :

Lifting Hearts To The Lord

Author :

Karin Maag

Category : Worship

Format : Softcover

Price: $41.00*
* Price Before Member's Discount

 

The Church at Worship is a series of documentary case studies of specific worshiping communities from around the world and throughout Christian history — case studies that can inform and enrich worship practices today. In Lifting Hearts to the Lord Karin Maag brings together a wealth of primary sources to examine worship as it was taught and practiced in John Calvin’s Geneva. Enhanced with Maag’s introductions and numerous marginal notes, this volume covers the period from 1541 to 1564, capturing both Calvin’s signal contribution to Reformation worship and the voices of ordinary Genevans as they navigated — and fought about — changes in their worship.
 
Some of the primary materials included here:
·    Selections from John Calvin’s Scripture commentaries and sermons dealing with worship
·    Pages from the Genevan Psalter and service book
·    Historical maps and illustrations of Geneva and its churches
·    Genevan city council edicts and ordinances on worship
·    Excerpts from letters, eyewitness accounts of Reformation worship in Geneva, and consistory records
